The MP whorehouse....errr bazaar

Other definitions:
Politics is the process by which groups of people make decisions.

Bring on Christie's, IPL, NFL, NBA drafts and all will fall flat in front of the great Indian political tamasha 2008. The Left withdraws support and all hell breaks loose as the UPA needs the magic figure of 271 to retain power. Old rivalries forgotten, new enemies made, jailed MPs bailed out and a whole lot going down.
One of the funniest things I heard was one party accusing another of horse-trading. Guess no one is up in arms like when the IPL auctions started, when claims of players being treated as commodities and whores can up. Guess everyone knows our leaders have been there, done that.
Mankind's 2 oldest professions - Prostitution and Politics have always gone hand in hand like fish"n"chips and nothing has changed in this age.
All the tamasha had me thinking what if we had a 2 party rule in India? For example you are either join the BRA (Bandra rodent association) party or CD (comfortably dumb) party, with no third choice, would this political storm ever take place?
Something like the Democrats and the Republicans. India with it vast culture and diversity that we pride ourselves on will NEVER let the 2 party system work. Religion, language, geographical location, caste, gender and sub-sect segregation is what drives our politics.
Also with the 2 party rule, the party in power would have absolute power and would serve out its full term irrespective of the decisions it takes. So tomorrow if the BRA party won and decided to sell me to another country at 20paise/day wages with no bathroom breaks nobody would come to my rescue. But with 8023470234803 parties forming the government 1 withdrawal could spell doom. Mind you the party withdrawing support wont do it cause I am getting exploited but cause it can gain political mileage. Either ways I end up not being exploited.....
So hurray to our flawless system......
