New Delhi. A group of Arab diplomats have landed in New Delhi to have an emergency round of discussion with Indian authorities on how to tackle popular unrest against establishments in the Middle Eastern countries.
Recent protests in Tunisia, Yemen and Egypt have worried every little country in that region that very soon their own citizens could also rise against their governments for giving them shit in the name of better governance and freedom.
“I mean, fine, India is a democracy, but the citizens here get the same shit, isn’t it?” a delegate from Saudi Arabia explained to Faking News, “I mean look at corruption around you. People are burnt alive or shot dead if they oppose it, while others die of hunger. But no, Indians are so happy! We need to learn this art to manage our own guys.”
Similar sentiments were echoed by diplomats of other countries who marveled at the capacity of an ordinary Indian to put up with all kind of shit that flows from the above. They wondered what was bugging their own people.
“We didn’t even raise petrol prices dammit! They get it cheap as water,” wondered the guy from Yemen, who confirmed that it was mostly the middle class in those countries that was leading the protests.
“Indian middle class is sexy,” said the Yemeni diplomat, who further clarified, “See, we are cool with one of those occasional silent marches or candle light vigils, but that’s it! People should go back to their homes and start relaxing; no problem with that, none at all.”
The diplomats summarily rejected the idea that the local population in the Middle Eastern countries wanted democracy as an alternate system of governance.
“Oh come on, look at Pakistan and people in Kashmir; guys want to move away from democracy there,” pointed out a diplomat, who further informed that their delegation will also visit Pakistan to understand how to deal with this “democracy bullshit”.
