Mr. Modi, “Learning through Acronyms.”

The RSS taught the young Mr. Modi, ‘Learning Through Acronyms,’ and boy, has he raped our sensibilities with them in recent times. On his latest visit to China, he did it again. He said people to people contact should be strengthened with STRENGTH: S-Spirituality; T-Tradition, Trade, and Technology; R-Relationship; E-Entertainment (Movies, Art, Dances etc.); N-Nature conservation; G-Games; T-Tourism and H- Health and Healing. Which, allegedly, led one Chinaman to say to another, “What an idiot, he speaks in Hindi and gives us acronyms in English. We should get one like him for the monkey cage in the Beijing Zoo.” And his friend replied, “Last time he met us he said he wanted to, ‘Inch towards Miles’. That was also in English, and the convoluted meaning was that INCH was ‘India-China’; and MILES was ‘millennium of exceptional synergy’.”
“HaHaHa”, the first Chinaman said, “And all the time we were striding inches and miles on their border”.
And, they said a small prayer for India, because even they didn’t want a neighbor of I.3 billion people to get that screwed.
And, if you have forgotten, as Mr. Modi surely has, here are some of his other acronyms: SCAM: Samajwadi Party, Akhilesh Yadav, Congress, and Mayawati.
