Amul has been the smoothest political and socio-cultural satire with a pinch of humour for as long as I was a small kid and can remember it… Now its making news for the Amul Babies tagline…

Yeah Amul trending on Twitter and reason… hav a luk..

This was after the war of words between Rahul and V S Achyutanandan (Kerala CM)

Kerala Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan Sunday hit out at Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi‘s comment on his age by calling him an ‘Amul baby’.

Gandhi, at an election meeting Saturday, pointed out that if the Left came back to power, then at the end of its five-year term the state would have a 93-year-old chief minister. Achuthanandan is 87 years old.

And here is my fav on Anna Hazare

Which means a 1000 wishes and hopes implying Anna Hazare represents a 1000 hopes of the people and a 1000 wishes from the people.  The simple Gandhian fighting against corruption for a bill JAN LOKPAL.

    Am writing a thesis on Public Trust in WikiLeaks, the Media and the Government and need to know what your opinions are. The online survey is multiple choice and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please follow the link: http://www.kwiksurveys.com/?s=ILLLML_9669e09d. Would be great if you would encourage others to do the survey also.
