If I ruled the world…

  • I’d make honking a criminal offense in India.
  • I’d ban ‘loud’ music at all times.
  • I’d fine politicians for every poster or banner featuring their name that was left on public property.
  • I’d ensure that we had the right to cast a negative vote.
  • I’d have a retirement age for politicians.
  • Heck, I’d get rid of all politicians, pronto. Would save us a lot of bother. Might actually do some good.
  • I’d ban mining in Goa.
  • I’d ensure that every child got an education, never went to bed hungry and didn’t need to work to stay alive.
  • I’d throw those involved with spurious mid-day school meals into prison for life . People who benefit by hurting children in any way don’t deserve to be a part of civilised society anyway.
  • I’d make having a garden compulsory for every residence – it doesn’t have to be like the Blenheim Palace gardens, just window boxes with pretty flowers will do.
  • I’d limit the number of hours a human being spends on the Internet. Some ‘real’ interaction will be mandatory.

Yup. I’d do all this. Vote for me.

(This is not my entry for the contest, obviously. I want to win – I’ll be writing something more…eloquent. 🙂
