Addition to our vocabulary - the silver lining of scams!!!!!!!!
The large amounts mentioned in the scams have given us a new addition to the vocabulary that refers to large numbers like "googol" (10^100) - such as:
Rs. 1,00,000 crores.= Rs. 1 Raja
Rs. 10,000 crores ...= Rs. 1 Radia
Rs. 1,000 crores......= Rs. 1 Kalmadi
It will be easier to converse and comprehend large numbers.
A few examples:
Mukesh Ambani’s home on Pedder Road costs 4.50 Kalmadi
ONGC’s annual output is 1.20 Raja
India ’s loss in G2/G3 scam is about 1.70 Raja
India ’s total annual subsidy on Kerosene is 2.00 Radias
The Bofors kickbacks amounted to 0.064 Kalmadi
Wonder if one can claim a patent on it?
But I guess in the larger interest of mankind, one should publicise it .....for free!!
