Ant & Grasshopper

May 26th, 2008 | by admin |

The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer
building its house and laying up supplies for the
winter.

The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and laughs &
dances & plays the summer away.

Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed. The
Grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in
the cold.

Modern Version

The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer
building its house and laying up supplies for the
winter.

The Grasshopper thinks the Ant’s a fool and laughs &
dances & plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press
conference and demands to know why the Ant should be
allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold
and starving.

Nepal Tv, BBC, CNN show up to provide pictures of the
shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the Ant in
his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can
this be that this poor Grasshopper is allowed to
suffer so?

YCL stages a demonstration in front of the
Ant’s house.

Nagrik Samaj goes on a fast along with other
Grasshoppers demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated
to warmer climates during winter.

Amnesty International and Koffi Annan
criticizes the Nepalese Government for not upholding the
fundamental rights of the Grasshopper.

The Internet is flooded with online petitions
seeking support to the Grasshopper (many promising
Heaven and Everlasting Peace for prompt support as
against the wrath of God for non-compliance) .

Opposition MPs stage a walkout.
Upendra Yadav call for “Nepal Bandh”

Maobadi in immediately passes a law preventing Ants
from working hard in the heat so as to bring about
equality of poverty among Ants and Grasshoppers.

Baburam allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Nepali
Buses aptly named as the
‘Grasshopper Rath’ .

Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the ‘Prevention
of Terrorism Against Grasshoppers Act’ [POTAGA], with
effect from the beginning of the winter.

Madav Nepal
makes ‘Special Reservation ‘ for Grasshoppers in
Educational Institutions & in Government Services.

The Ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA

and having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes,
it’s home is confiscated by the YCL and handed
over to the Grasshopper in a ceremony covered by Nepal Tv.

Prachand calls it ‘A Triumph of Justice’.

YCL calls it ‘Socialistic Justice’.

Maobadi calls it the ‘Revolutionary Resurgence of the
Downtrodden’

UN Secretary General invites the Grasshopper to
address the UN General Assembly.

Many years later…

The Ant has since migrated to the US
and set up a multi-billion dollar company in Silicon
Valley

100s of Grasshoppers still die of starvation despite
reservation somewhere in Nepal
