Vice President Hamid Ansari recently declared Bang-a-thalai-ooru the "Nano city of India."
Soon after the announcement, the state government rebuilt the roads. The citizens of Bang-a-thalai-ooru (Bang-the-head-town a.k.a Bangalore) rejoiced!
On the second day of the announcement, the government hastily re-laid the roads when they realized that they had completely missed the old roads while relaying the new coat. The citizens of Bang-a-thalai-ooru rejoiced.
On the third day of the announcement, the BWSSB dug up the new roads. The citizens of Bang-a-thalai-ooru gnashed their teeth in despair.
On the fourth day of the announcement, the roads developed potholes. The wails of the citizenry rend the air.
On the fifth day of the announcement, the government wondered what Nano Technology was all about.
On the sixth day of the announcement, the bureaucrat who drafted the announcement was thrown out.
On the seventh day of the announcement, the government stopped all infrastructure repair work and took rest.
According to a Press Release released late that evening, the government was under the impressions that the Vice President had declared Karnataka a ‘Nano Car State.’ Speaking at the Press Conference a government spokesperson said "Gee…that VP's statement had all of us fooled ha ha ha!"
The citizens of Bang-a-thalai-ooru ...never mind the citizens of Bang-a-thalai-ooru!
('Chikka' in Kannada mean 'small' or 'Nano'! 'Ooru' means town or village)
