If the Congress controlled the Internet…

· They would reserve 50% of all websites in cyberspace for SC/ST/OBC.

· They would allow online voting in the Lok Sabha elections. Booth capturing and rigging could be done seamlessly.

· During protests like the anti-corruption and anti-rape ones, they would simply shut the Internet down.

· Every website would have a compulsory pop up ad praising the Dynasty.

· They would rename it as anti-social media and anti-social networking.

· Critics would then call it the Misinformation Superhighway.

· They would claim that Nehru invented the telephone, Indira the computer and Rajiv the Internet.

Virtual reality…

If you are off(your rocker)line, you read a book.

If you want to kill time, you read newspapers and magazines.

If you want to feel outraged, you watch TV news channels.

If you want to change the world, you log on to the Internet.

Off is the new On. On is the new Off.
