An indigenous example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly that made the world community smile.
A representative from India began:
"Before beginning my speech,I want to tell you a very very old story about Rishi Kashyap of kashmir, after whom Kashmir is named.
When he found a beautiful lake,
he thought-"What a good opportunity 2 have a bath",
He removed his clothes,put them aside on the rock and entered the water.
When he got out and wants to dress, his clothes had vanished.
A Pakistani had stolen them!
'The Pakistani representative in Assembly jumped up furiously and shouted,"what r u talking about?
The Pakistanis weren't there then."
Indian representative smiled and said,
"And now that we have made that clear, i'll begin my speech.
"And they(Pakistan) say Kashmir
belongs to them".
Being an Indian,I simply love this msg.. Even at the cost of repeating it!!
