Hail Zero !

The recently publicised Coal Scam  causing a loss of 1.86 lakh crores to the exchequer through Coal Block misallocation ,  prompted my blogger and FB friend Priyadarshan Kale, who works in Finance, to ask people if they could write in figures, the mind boggling sum.   

Many erred. Some fainted.   

INR 1,860,000,000,000.00

I made a poem :-)

शून्याचा शोध लावला ,
शून्यातून मोठे झालो ,
पण साध्या माणसांना
अजून शून्याचा अर्थ समजला नाही ....
कुणा "एकाने" स्वताहा समोर
चोरून चोरून इतकी शून्य लावली ,
कारण त्याला "अर्थ" चा खरा अर्थ कळला होता.
आणि म्हणूनच
तो अर्थाची व्यवस्था बघतो ,
आणि आम्ही सर्व मोठे शून्य ,
शून्यातच बघत राहतो ......

Discovered Zero,
Began as Zero,
But proletarian me
never understood Zero.....

Then some special "1"
stole so many 
and added them
to his repertoire 
of Final Answers.
to put it plainly'

Thats why,
he manages 
his collection of Finance,
while BIG Zeros like us
keep staring 
with eyes 
as big as Zeros.....
