The other day even as I was emerging from the private lane we happen to stay, I was literally waylaid by three people dismounting from their cycles. I noticed they were all couriers having large parcels in their hands. For a moment I thought some good friends of mine sent me a gift. Soon my hopes were dashed when they mentioned the recipients whose houses were identified more with their names for whatever reason. We might not succeed in getting the 33 percent representation in Parliament but there is cent percent empowerment at the mini micro level –a pleasant thought indeed!
