Rising Inflation: Urgently Need the Indo-US Biryani Deal

India’s inflation, as measured by the Wholesale Price Index, is at its highest in the last 13 years at 11.89%. If only all voters were bloggers by now there would have a revolution of sorts as citizens would have realized how they are being taken for a ride. In stead of focusing on real issues, our political leaders who have idea how to handle such situations, they are simply focusing on an issue called the Indo-US Nuclear Deal. It is now high time all political parties put aside their selfish interests, dirty tricks, short sightedness and got their act together for the interests of the common family.

What does the common family need more than petrol and nuclear power?—they need rice. In this context, it is time all political parties address the alarming rise in price of Dum Biryani. The price of Dum Biryani in India’s Dum Biryani capital, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh is at a distressingly high level. The price of Biryani at Bawarchi, RTC X Roads, the Gold Standard for Dum Biryani, are as follows as on July 10th, 2008:

Chicken and Mutton Biryani: Rs. 100

Veg Biryani: Rs. 60

These are the prices at level 1 of Bawarchi where the masses eat. In less than a year this price has climbed slowly from Rs. 70 to Rs. 100. Next is what?….Chicken Dum Biryani will be Rs. 500 and we will in the league of Zimbabwe and the like and suitable for IMF to come in to wreck more havoc as they will begin their experiments with economic theories. Even then, our cool and composed politicians and leaders, will be debating over the Indo-US Nuclear Deal.

The rising cost of Biryani is symbolic of the alarming situation in our country. It is high time our government started negotiating a Indo-US Biryani Deal. Maybe the US will agree for some technology transfer that can help reduce inflation. I figured that Dum Biryani will be an issue that all political parties will be unified on.
