Indralok : The ministry of Earth affairs, the most high-profile ministry in the Government of Indralok, has recommended that its kingdom in the high heavens be immediately made Wifi-enabled to ensure they are `connected’ to what’s happening down under. This decision was taken after everyone up above in the clouds missed Narendra Modi’s tweet `God is great !’ because none of the Gods are on twitter.
Using his discretionary powers, King Indra immediately decided to outsource the job of opening twitter handles for all 33 crore Gods to an agency run by Narada, without taking the auction route. “You do not need to call for tenders. There will be zero loss to the GoI,” advised Raja Kubera, the powerful minister of Finance, Telecom & IT.
The bigger challenge for Government of Indralok, however, is to deal with the request to supply free iPads or Tablets to the large number of demanding Gods. The government has instead offered an interest-free loan and constituted a GoM under the chairmanship of Lord Bramha to sort out the issue.
The cabinet which met on Monday, also took note of the revelry in God’s own country, on Onam, when Malayalees drank liquor worth 235 crores. King Mahabali, who gets to visit Kerala only once in a year on Onam, was singled out for praise for keeping his subjects in high spirits. However, his request to make a second visit on 31 December, was turned down.
The meeting also noted “with pleasure” that the 42 crore rupees worth diamond crown donated to the Tirumala temple by tainted mining baron Gali Janardhana Reddy, will not be returned. Lord Venkateswara pointed out that in the face of stiff competition from his counterpart in Thiruvananthapuram, returning a donation would not be acceptable to him. The Gods however, did not discuss the affairs of Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple as it is subjudice.
