“A see saw comes to mind.” “What as in a playground?” “Yes and you know in a see saw you may be up but depending on the one seated at the other end you could be slowly lowered or come crashing down.”

“You are referring to our politics?”

“More like the fate of the politicians – up and down, up and down, sometimes they come down with a crash because the one at the other end so wills, but at other times they are slowly lowered…”

“That sounds about right. Anyway all the King’s men and all the King’s horses are in Dubai these days…”

“Hey the Caretaker Finance Minister is there too and she is neither a man nor a horse.”

“Reminds me of Shakespeare’s play Richard III, you know where he says my kingdom for a horse.”

“What about real effective exchange rates (REER)…”

“Nope he learnt how to manipulate statistics including REERs when he was the finance minister.”

“Impressive, that shows his capacity to learn.”

“Too bad, it’s not to learn basic economic theory.”

“Oye back off, he is one of a kind.”

“One of a kind, what, an accountant”?

“No a Samdhi”.
