July 31st, 2012 – This Day, Last Year



The last day of the month and the paper’s crowded.

First Gagan Narang in shooting wins a bronze,

Then in a burning train 28 are charred and shrouded,

And RBI’s would under 6.5%, its forecast ensconce.

The North India grid collapsed for 10 hours,

Labeled the worst power crises in 10 years.

But haven’t we heard this story many a time dears,

Does any PSU care how its reputation tars.

The Vigilance officer probing DGCA isn’t allowed to wait.

A manager ran over two in a drunken state.

And for good deeds, the vigilance guy’s being shunted out.

That Shinde may soon head home ministry, little doubt.

But it’s Adarsh that continues to claim its victims.

Let’s read some more on this tale of corrupt chums.



Ajay Sancheti of BJP financed ten buyers in Adarsh,

Giving them loans from his San Finance Corporation.

And so he asked the society not to initiate any brash

Sale, because San Finance must clear any such notion.

Now the Judicial Commission has also learnt,

That indeed it was Ashok Chavan who wanted

Civilians members to be jolly well included,

Though he denied, but now records are burnt.

And he did all this to benefit family members.

Yet feigning memory he no longer remembers,

Any direct role in the Adarsh scam.

But the brigadier of the society like a parrot sang.

Each scam that exposed is merely just one among

The large-scale rot – a nation or a pile of dung?


So well, July was actuated with match fixing.

A sporty month, with also Adarsh football.

Then to Chennai Pranab went canvassing,

Amid spirited attempts for FDI to stall.

The BJP then was messed up in Karnataka,

And telecom growth drivers were finally bared.

Militancy now in trade unions is shared,

And Mayawati escaped the law’s juggler.

Maharashtra projects earned dubious distinction.

Riotously featured in Time, was PM of our nation.

DGCA’s riddled, NCP’s frazzled, and Best Bakery is a fluty

Ghost to haunt Modi; while hen-rooster cutely cuddled on duty.

But star son, Akhilesh I thank for the big July amuse –

Who didn’t hear Dad – a CM who doesn’t watch news!
