The Midas Touch
The Midas Touch
"Sir we should give him Bharat Ratna before your tenure end, otherwise I think he would be the next Prime Minister of India", PM's secretory was worried of my popularity because I helped in eradicating poverty along with garbage and waste from Indian streets which was promised by him five years back during his election rallies.
"It was also my mistake that he became so popular in the country. If I would have stayed in the country more than on foreign visits, I could catch his potentials early and forced him to join our party." PM knew that it was too late none of his policy could stand against my Midas touch. I have turned all the garbage and waste on streets and roads into gold which was picked by people. This changed fortunes of every Indian, those who never saw garbage touched and put it in their pockets and home. With lack of cleaning staff government even lost opportunity to grab gold.
I became so famous that not only Indian PM but state heads of other countries were also discussing about my Midas touch and its effect on the world. They were also planning to bestow me with highest civilian awards of their country. Their were also speculations that Noble Prize committee would confer me with Noble Peace Prize. Although I faced difficulty in doing my regular work like eating and cleaning myself but I dedicated myself to service of humanity and for doing my personal work I appointed a secretory who used to feed me, help me in bathing and after nature's call.
All my nephews and nieces were engrossed in my story when their mothers called them. I always told them such stories without asking whether they believe it or not.But I know they enjoyed listening them. I think I have made it clear my action plan if I had the Midas touch.
