image for Indian Govt. announces voting to gauge public-opinion on national issues

(Delhi,India - Hajh Times) After Taj Mahal's selection as one of the 7 wonders of the world, the Indian Government has announced public-voting to gauge public opinion on issues of national importance.

Furthermore, the Government, along with a few international bodies, have also decide to settle, once and for all, the issue of whether or not public voting is a fair mechanism to choose the wonders of the world, by imposing a fine of 10k on people who abstain from voting in patriotism/country-related polls.

The voting form contains 7 'wonder'ful questions and reads as follows:

1) Whether cell-phone companies and web-sites are minting money by coaxing people to vote?

Yes
No
Cannot be determined

2) Is Einstein's E = MC² a correct formula?

Yes
No

3) Would you want to get an exclusive privilege of getting money amounting to: 'Total revenue generated/total number of voters', through this poll?

Yes
No

4) Should Rakhi Sawant continue to be so open in private?

Yes
No
Confused, but will she able to flaunt her vital assets, after she goes open in public?

5) Is the government justified in levying a sum of 10000 on people who fail to vote in such polls?

Yes
No
I am still thinking; I will vote after a week!

6) Are public polls such as these a fair mechanism to decide wonders of the world?

Yes
No

7) Are you ashamed to be a part of the system that reduces patriotism to such silly polls and swindles your money?

Yes
No
What…vote?...Did this poll cost me money?...What? ..How?

You can also log onto the website: www.patriotismpersonified.com, or send an SMS on the number 2345.

The results will be announced after a week. The person who votes for all the right categories will get a bumper prize of 2 lakh rupees, and he will be none other than our Tourism Minister's nephew who badly needs to pass his BA!!!!
