Guess ! ? Paintings of which Indian Artist fetch the highest in India! ~ Tyeb Mehta or late MF Husain or…..!? Take as many Guesses !
India Today reports that the Airports Authority of India (AAI) has allegedly paid Rs 28 crs for Eight Paintings by Elizabeth Anthony,the wife of India’s Defence Minister Mr A K Anthony ~ that’s an average of Rs 3.5 crs for each painting ~ These are to be displayed at selected Indian Airports ~ two are already up
If the Figure as reported is correct then clearly AAI is flying high as their artistic eye is at a level even higher than arguably India’s best Painters, Tyeb Mehta and late M F Husain !
So what if Proceeds are to go to a Cancer NGO Charity run by Mrs Anthony herself ! ~ Perhaps the Defence Minister has something to say in Defence ! ~ No Wonder Mrs Anthony was unwilling to reveal the AAI Purchases Details to India Today ! ~ Did not the Anthonys realise that questions will be asked for such unrealistic high value painting purchases !? ~ yet the risk was taken !
Methinks it’s the same reasons why Industrialists pay heavy vulgar unrealistic wayout and absurd white bribe Premiums to invest in shares in Companies of Politicians or those being fronted or patronised by them ! ~ like for instance yesterday the CBI interrogated BCCI Chief and India Cements MD N Srinivasan for over seven hours to find out why India Cements had invested at absurd premiums and amounts in the companies of Jagan Reddy,chief of YSR Congress and the son of late ex CM of Andhra Pradesh,YS Reddy ~ clearly it was a quid pro quo for being granted significantly additional water and limestone and mining rights for India Cement Plants in Andhra Pradesh !
Mera Bharat Mahaan ! ~ Yesterday I had Blogged that Democracy is for ,by and of the People ~add ‘Few’ before People
Blatant Looting ~ No Accountability ~ No Responsibility ~ No one to pull up such People who violate the law and misuse position and power and think they are simply above the Law !
India is not a Banana Republic ~ ask our FM soon to be President !
No wonder all Political Parties across idealogies are against Anna’s LokPal Version !
In 1948 South African Novelist Alan Paton’s ‘Cry,The Beloved Country’ was published just before Apartheid was implemented ~ the Novel is a social protest to explain the roots of Apartheid and why the ‘Whites’ were affected by the ‘Blacks’ who were experiencing a breakdown of their tribal systems
