Many years ago, while doing my undergrad, my professor called me to his room, “With what you write and how you write,” he said, “You will either fail or get an A plus”

“Why fail?” I asked.

“Because if your examiner is one who wants a copy paste answer, you’re finished!” he said.

Luckily my examiner wasn’t such, but the other day looking at the newspapers I found most students had scored over ninety percent, and there was one who'd scored one hundred and one percent!

How?

Our educational system hasfinally become a copy-paste one. There is no creativity! Variety is frowned upon, and either you write verbatim what the text book says or you fail.We are producing a nation of clones and non-thinkers!

In my imagination I calledhome immediately after seeing the 90 percenter results: "Lock my cupboard and hide the keys!"

"Why?" asked the wife, "something you want to hide from me?"

 "Just lock it!"

She didn't. "Mummy's looking through every paper in every shelf!" the children screamed as I entered.

"No!" I cried as I rushed in.

"Haven't found anything!" sighed the wife, looking rather disappointed.

"Thank god!" I said as I took a file from the floor and put it back.

"What's that?"

"What's what?"

"That file?"

"Didn't you check it?"

"I did but why the hurry in putting it back? Is there something you don't want me to see?"

"Have I hidden anything from you?"

The wife thought for a moment, "Yes!" she said, "Remember your baby milk bottle your mama sent over after our marriage?"

"Ssshhhh!" I said looking at the kids.

"And that snap in your wallet?"

"That was a pen-pal!" I said, "and I thought you'd forgotten about her?"

"We women never forget! We've got to be on guard all the time, looking after our turf! Now what's in that file you just hid?"

"Nothing," I said defensively.

"Tell us daddy, tell us!" cried both, trying to grab the file.

"Don't!" I yelled.

"Screaming at the poor children? Is it so important?"

"I didn't scream!"

"Please dad, show us your secret!"

"Come on we're family! Show us what you're hiding?" said the wife dangerously.

"Got it ma!" shouted the kids as they grabbed the file and ran out.

"Give it back!" I whispered, and then there was silence in the next room.

The kids came back, not looking at me. "What is it children?"

"Daddy's mark sheet!"

"Ma tell us it's not true!" wailed the elder.

"What isn't true?" asked the wife.

"That our brains aren't from dad’s side of the family. Look how much dad got in high school!"

My wife looked at my old mark sheet then got up quickly.

"Where you going?" I chuckled.

"To hide my marks and lock my cupboard!" she muttered as she slammed her door shut and quickly turned the key..!

Have been watching the debacle of the PMC Bank which is the Punjab and Maharashtra Cooperative Bank, and how the RBI, controlled I’m sure, totally by the government, is dealing with the crisis.

Have noticed today, that there is no more a sense of fairness: It’s either majority versus minority where the majority voice wins!Or, it’s the numbers game, of how many voters are affected and how to appease the greater numbers, so as not to lose the voter base.

I see, sadly, the same win- win clever strategy being used here in dealing with the PMC bank.

Instead of concentrating on the deposits, the RBI is concentrating on the depositor.

Let me explain.

In a housing society, each member whether he’s got a small flat or big flat, is an equal share holder, but his monthly liability is proportionate to the square feet of his flat. Which means his liability is equal to his investment! In case, the society makes a profit, as seen in some societies in Bombay’s Nariman Point, the profits are directly distributed according to the proportion of the member’s investment or size of his flat.

But, here in the Banks case, instead of giving back to the investor in the PMC bank, a percentage of his locked-up savings, the RBI is cleverly distributing the same amount equally. Which means whether you have invested one crore or a mere ten thousand rupees, you get back the same amount!

Totally unfair!

If the RBI after seeing the financial position of the PMC decided it could give back to the investors 500 crores, the money should have been distributed in proportion to the amount the investor had invested.

Someone who had invested ten lakhs of his or her hard-earned money, should have got back a lakh, and investors who had put in ten thousand, could have been given back proportionately a similar percentage on their investment amount.

This way, every investor would have been treated equally.

Today, as I see less and less afflicted people protesting, and fighting their battle to get back their money, I can see the governors looking through their respective windows.

“There are a hundred of them outside!”

“Give them ten thousand rupees more, and fifty percent will not be seen tomorrow!”

“Yes sir!”

This same policy is used with most everything. Potholes are not repaired for motorists who are a minority, but repaired when the vote banks are on the streets, during the Ganesh festival.

Coming back to the PMC bank, let distribution be done proportionate to the money deposited!

That is the fair way, and not the clever way, which has become the norm, in a country, where political leaders and others use cunning and craftiness instead of fairplay..!
