Incredible India

Today, I had yet another encounter with mindless babudum of old socialist India.  Everytime,  I am forced to sign that mindless  immigration form ,  while going out of India or coming back to India,   I feel sad about my countrty.  Today,  at Shanty town, called Chennai international airport,  I noticed that this form was also acting as advertisement for govt slogan “Incredible India” too.

Every other country I have visited so far, they try to minimize such meaningless collection of data. Everywhere else only a tourist has  to complete such a form.  In that way, at least they are dealing with smaller data set. What an apt place for “Incredible India” advertisement. Indeed, we are incredible in a sense that our babudom believe that it is their duty to make sure that every Indian going abraod must complete a form. I always wonder what actually happens to that form 🙂
