Ours is an amazing nation. First, we dare the Prime Minister to act on black money. When he doesn’t, we accuse him of ‘jumla baazi’. Amnesty schemes are announced and we taunt the Government for the poor response. If raids follow, we cry foul of “tax terrorism”. When demonetisation happens champions of banking inclusion suddenly remember they never asked their domestic staff to open Jan Dhan Yojna accounts. And, finally, a generation that made a virtue of standing in line for everything — rail tickets, cinema tickets, football tickets, water, kerosene, ration, temples and Ganapati pandals — suddenly realise queues are the worst form of oppression.
