December 21, 2011.
Yesterday, we were like you. Yes! We have also organised fests and events. Believe me! We learnt the basics of earning some extra bucks from there only! We also know the joy of receiving the first cheque from the sponsors for an event—more so when the event itself got cancelled. When events got cancelled, we learnt the art of satisfying everyone else with the old photographs (sigh). Our clerks and photographers still use these traditional ways.
Not to forget my favourite: BILL INFLATION. You might have seen a little glimpse of that in the Commonwealth Games 2010. Those treadmills were bought from the same street where you get your fest T-shirts and posters. How easy it is, to get a bill of 300% more than the actual cost—do try it out in the next fest if you haven’t tasted it yet. The government funds for us are the same as what college funds are to you. The difference is just that we do not have watchdog professors like you. But RTI really sometimes becomes pain in our ass. Anyway I hope things become smoother when your turn comes.Think about all that money collected after the fest. It must have brought a smile on your face. It gives a great sense of accomplishment and self-satisfaction when your hard work literally pays you. It kind of boosts your self-respect. We also get the same feeling and the parties after that are no different from those of yours. As you prosper more, in the future, you will become more classy and you will hate dry days as always.
There is a thing that nobody knows but unknown to these news channels (and therefore to you), we—all the people of different parties— are friends; our motives are similar after all. This is similar to your society systems or multiple organisations for fests. The competition is what separates you guys, and you have fights among yourselves, but in normal college days you are like chuddy buddies (underwear friend)—it works just like that with us. So if you do not consider the scale, we are not much different from you.
Being a scamster involves a lot of creativity, hard work, determination and courage. Besides these, the mentorship and motivational stories (provided by not just huge bank balances of my colleagues and myself, but the luxury at Tihar) have their own undeniable importance, which we are taking care of for you people. What do we get in return? A protest against us! Instead of standing with us, you are standing against us. What do you think this Anna fellow will do to our society? Today they are asking for your support, but tomorrow they will backstab you all, for example they will close down all the liquor shops. Then how will you celebrate that happiness of exams getting over? What will you do with the money you EARNED during fests? So please think about it. Develop some foresight for your actions and if possible, join us to put down RTI.
Hope to see some brains enlightened by my letter.
Your loving and caring
