to use this stock of soap for washing clothes etc. although this also is not free from hazards. Other day while passing by a cemetery I heard one dead asking another dead - "How is that your shroud is whiter than mine". Other dead rose from the grave with a cake of soap in hand and declared - "My shroud is flashing white due to Genie soap".
There are so many toilet soaps in the market that put together they can easily white wash the depleting coal reserve of our country. We often hear so and so politician or so and so political party believes only in value based politics. I fail to understand, one, what is this value based politics, two, the value of such politicians. Must be pretty high in the market, how high one won't know till horse trading actually takes place. At time we do get hints of their rates when they are on 'sale' enmass or when they return to their fold naming it change of heart, homecoming etc. I met another set of politicians who declared that their forte is issue based politics. When I wanted details they said first issues are raked up we play around with them till another issue comes up and unseats the earlier issue which then is dumped to gather dust in a forgotten corner. Just like the series of fancy dolls produced and marketed with a catchy slogan, he continued. We also want to have fresh issues. Our politicians provide us with one so that our coffee houses, our drawing room activists and arm chair intellectuals are supplied with their regular intake of inputs.
A poor country like ours, why does she need 136 variety of bathing soaps, the only reason, I understand is we are not clean physically, mentally and spiritually. I don't know what brand of soap these politicians use even after having been involved in all types of scams and scandals they are whitest and cleanest ever. It is high time government fixed up and declared the rate list of these legislators. Once the rate list is known it would be a lot more easier to play the game called Value Based Politics.

In a board room of one detergent company the discussion on launching a new soap hovered round what would be the lead line the magic statement should be catchy so that people simply grab the soap. One suggested we can say its dissolution in water is slowest .. interruption .. some other brand has already claimed so. Another suggested we may advertise that our soap doesn't dissolve at all and yet cleans the clothes. However, the meeting concluded on the lead line ï¿½ soap has secret chemicals which on contact with water and cloth increases the size of soap.
