Governments are tagged to big business houses.
Policies and regulations have to go through the network of highly placed tycoons.
Parliament, senate, House of Lords, symbolise democracy.
They are in reality ineffectual symbols.
The passage of resolutions in the houses is only a ritual .
They have to be endorsed by the big shots.
If they are a little estranged from the code of established norms set by them , little deviated fromto their transactions, little tilted towards progress , little inclined towards development, a warning siren is sounded.
The documentary evaluations find a silent death and buried discreetly.
The elected representatives are a mere shadow to this elite community.
The politicians issue doctrines and set rules to satiate the appetite of the greedy mercenaries and appease them with delicious delights of sops and concessions.
The government machinery receives bounties and largess from the billionaires.
Altering Shakespeare on mercy , I quote.
Policies are twice blest.
It blesses the one who gives .
it also blesses the one who takes.
Business houses and the government stand to benefit.
It is the ordinary man ,who scores a duck, who stands cheated, who is left helpless, who is spurned and
who loses his equilibrium.
