Why is Barack Obama carrying all sorts of $&%# in his pocket for good luck?
It makes him look like Dennis Kucinich…
“Tiny monkey god”? That’s Hanuman, who, in the Hindu scripture the Ramayana, led “a monkey army to fight the demon King Ravana and rescue a kidnapped princess.”
Which, by my count, makes Obama Christian, Muslim, and Hindu…
Hanuman’s making news for other reasons, too.
He was just “named official chairman of the recently opened Sardar Bhagat Singh College of Technology and Management in northern India.”
Yep. You read that correctly.
The position comes with an incense-filled office, a desk and a laptop computer. Four chairs will be placed facing the empty seat reserved for the chairman and all visitors must enter the office barefoot, said Vivek Kangdi, the school’s vice chairman.
“When we were looking for a chairman for our institution, we scanned many big names in the field of technology and management. Ultimately, we settled for Lord Hanuman, as none was bigger than him,” Kangdi said.
This means the invisible, non-existent monkey God gets more perks in his profession than you do in yours.
Probably gets paid more, too.
Maria shares my own feelings on the matter:
You might think that I, being Indian, would be embarrassed for my home country. Nope. Not me. Why should I care that an institute of higher learning in India is sabotaging its duty and keeping flocks of young Indians mired in ignora–…. AAAAAAAAAAAAARGH! YOU STUPID BASTARDS! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?
Why is this bothering me so much? It’s just a monkey, after all.
My world has come full circle.
Everything makes sense now…
