CLASSIC VERSION...

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer
long, building his house and laying up supplies for
the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant's a fool and laughs &
dances & plays the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The
grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in
the cold.

MODERN VERSION...

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer
long, building his house and laying up supplies for
the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant's a fool and laughs &
dances & plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press
conference and demands to know why the ant should be
allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold
and starving.

BBC, CNN, AAJ TAK, NDTV show up to provide pictures of
the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant
in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can
this be that this poor grasshopper is allowed to
suffer so?

Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the
ant's house.
Amnesty International and Koffi Annan criticize the
Government for not upholding the fundamental rights of
the grasshopper.
The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking
support to the grasshopper.
Opposition MP's stage a walkout.
Left parties call for "Bharat Bandh" in West Bengal
and Kerala demanding a Judicial Enquiry.

Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the Prevention
of Terrorism Against Grasshoppers Act [POTAGA]", with effect from
the beginning of the winter.
The ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and, having
nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the government
and handed over to the grasshopper in a ceremony
covered by BBC,CNN, AAJ TAK and NDTV.
Arundhati Roy calls it "a triumph of justice".
Koffi Annan invites the grasshopper to address the UN
General Assembly.
