Bapu: Yes Bittoo.
Bittoo: SSLC pass/fail politicians seem to be more intelligent than the graduates, post graduates, doctors, engineers, scientists, writers and many others Bapu?
Bapu: Literacy levels are not the sole criteria to judge someone’s intellect and wisdom. But what makes you think so?
Bittoo: I think so because all these highly qualified people vote for these SSLC pass/fail candidates and elect them to parliament and legislatures, pledge their future for five years and expect them to do wonders. Therefore, they must be more intelligent as they motivate us to vote for them Bapu?
Bapu: I don’t know Bittoo.
This is a citizen-centric new column, wherein the author(Bitto) is an ordinary, politically unaffiliated common man of the city who in his/her inimitable approach takes up various issues with the Bapu’s soul! Apparently, the interaction between them portrays ironies of sorts encountered by the common man and others in the city in a lighter vein. The author’s name will not be disclosed to the readers as he/she represents the common man of the society. This column aims at creating awareness and sensitising cross sections of our city on various issues of public concern only but in a lighter vein without holding any contempt against any institution or individual.
