“But you’ve got to go to office dear!” said his worried wife as call after call came from her husband’s office, “What shall I tell your boss?” “Tell him to read today’s paper, that if Mamata can operate from home so can I!” She watched as her husband took out his tools and started repairing the tap that was leaking. “That’s so nice of you dear, but don’t you think we should call a plumber?” “I guess she does!”
“So I’m doing the same! Does Mamata bother how the railways are run when she’s home? Please pass me the spanner will you?” The wife passed the spanner and heard the pitter patter of little feet, “Ma I’m not going to school!” “Is it because of Mamata Banerjee?”
“Yes, how did you know? And ma, guess what?” “You tell me!” “Even the teachers are not going to school to teach, they say they’ll work from home!” “How can they teach from home?” asked the mother helplessly. “The same way Mamata aunty is doing!” giggled the little child.
The wife of the new plumber looked at her husband working under the sink and stared at her little son who was going to put on the TV. “No!” she said. “No what?” asked the husband and the child. “Get up from under the sink and no putting on the TV!” “What do you mean?” asked both.
“If you think our lives are going to go to the dogs like what is happening to the railways, then you both are quite mistaken!” she screamed, “Go back to work and school!”
Somewhere in Delhi Prime Minister Manmohan Singh heard the mother shout and wondered when he would have the courage to be as strict as she was.
