Oh, by the way, the somewhat notorious lawyer who had brought in this case"--"of the present lot of EVMs being tamper-able and hack-able"--"and, who, had successfully fought it so, forcing the Supreme Court to order the installation of a fail-safe voting mechanism (of Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail machines replacing the susceptible earlier Electronic Voting Machines) to ensure a free and fair electoral process in India"--"well, this oh-so-very honorable fellow too has fallen silent, like a demure maiden. This most vociferous gentleman had openly declared on social websites, especially Twitter, that in case VVPAT machines do not get installed in time for 2014 elections, then, there would be a "constitutional crisis""--"putting it out there like an Indian "pehalwan", a la WWW wrestler, that he would challenge the same in the apex court. He had most emphatically underlined he would ensure that either the new fail-safe voting machines or the old time-tested paper ballot system will be put in use during this general election in India. However, recently, when asked specifically on Twitter about this matter"--"as to what this lovely man is doing or is going to do about this impending doomsday electoral scenario"--"there was a deafening silence from his side. May be owing to the fact that since the Supreme Court judgement late last year, this self-righteous rightist has joined the ultra-rightist political bandwagon.

The latter has been projected by pollsters to overwhelmingly sweep these elections"--"as a direct result of the doings of the monstrous public relations firm hired from the land of the let-it-be, oops! free. This US firm is the same that was used fruitfully by President Bush and Hillary Clinton for their respective political campaigns. It has"--"let there be no doubt about it"--"successfully projected its client as the potential winner and the next numero uno in Indian politics.

What the majority of the Indians have missed in fine print is that the outgoing Chief Minister of the state of Rajasthan, in the last year elections, had officially filed a complaint with the election commission that the EVMs used in his state were pre-programmed and tampered with"--"and that the same had come from the state of which this presently hyped-up future Prime Minister of India, is the current Chief Minister. Now, the lawyer who had gone to the dogs to awaken India and the rest of the world about the mischief and malfeasance possible with the old model of EVMs"--"and had in fact written a book on this subject"--"is in a wink-wink deep-throat "smadhi". A silence that speaks truths we dumb billion idiots on this part of slippery earth cannot fathom. Perhaps it's a precursor of the things to come.

Let us hope the jolly good hackers of this-that party screw-up each other's devilish, outright evil plans. In a dog eat dog political crap pit we hapless billion creatures have to walk through every election, maybe this time the ape sitting by the side"--"the wide-eyed hopeful citizen of India"--"at least gets a tiny part of the apple pie this messy hacking cat fight will leave behind, on the side lanes. Perhaps these little crumbs will be enough for us to stay afloat. though not gloat.

In a nutshell, simply put, whosoever "out-hacks" the other, will win.

Then again, we are an ancient civilization of more than 33, 0000000 gods and goddesses"--"some civilized, others not so civil. Let's hope one of these fancied deities has a soft corner for us dumbos. Otherwise, we are going to get screwed. A billion times over.

We live in a fool's paradise.
