You have to love the tweets from the minister of state for foreign affairs, Gov of India, Mr Shashi Tharoor. They are informative, instructive and educative. He is a switched on and a tech savvy minister.
He got the unfair flak from Mrs Big Bindi AKA Ms Jayanthi Natarajan, Mr Ashok Gehlot and few more from AICC on his “Cattle class and holy cows” tweet but he made his point any way.
Now, his brilliant idea about us working on 2nd October is a gem of the idea.
When Bapu had himself said”work is worship” then why should we not follow him and work on 2nd October “Gandhi Jayanti? Why have the hypocrisy of claiming to follow Bapu and not actually follow his teachings? After all, in many countries including Vietnam, people celebrate the birth days of their greats, by working and not going on holidays on that day.
I agree with you Mr Tharoor whole-heartedly. Way to go Mr Tharoor!
Thinking about it though, why should we stop at only 2nd October?
We should work on 5th September AKA “Teachers’ day” too. All teachers should teach, student study and others work their usual jobs on that day!
We need more brilliant ideas from the intelligent ministers in the Gov and the brilliant people among us!
AICC and UPA Gov, you are lucky to have a person of Mr Tharoor’s calibre! I am serious here.
Mrs Big Bindi, don’t you even try making issues with Mr Tharoor please! Leave him alone. He speaks for me and millions more!
