Money, money everywhere,
On the roads, in the sky
In the death and life gone by!
Money here, money there
Money, money everywhere!
Believe it or not! The earth is revolving around Money - the ultimate God. Many people have come and gone by and many are living legends. Their name and fame may not remain after them. But money is immortal. It never dies. Money was created by man yet it has won over man.
Today where there is corruption in every part of the world nothing can move without money. Say, for instance, the tehelka.com scam. What happened? A handful of corrupt ministers were selling their country's defence for a few lakhs of rupees. Is it so cheap? Oh! Just chuck it out. Its money after all.
We have a constitution in which the Indian Penal Code (IPC) is registered. There are so many officers working in the police force. Some officers are also corrupt. Rapists, murderers, dacoits quite a few from these categories get released without even filing a FIR. Who is going to ask them? If at all asked the answer would be, "Upar se phone aa gaya tha sahab". Oh! Just chuck it out. Its money after all.
The newspapers nowadays publish ads more than articles and news. If at all they publish some true news involving big politicians or ministers they are forced by some higher forces to publish corrigendum. Some important news, which has a great truth in it, will not be published if there are ads giving more money. Oh! Just chuck it out. Its money after all.
We live on this soil yet we are bound to ignore all these things. Uh! After all when money speaks, truth is silent.
