In 1969 Indira Gandhi decided to hatao garibi, to remove poverty, from India. However, though properly served with notice to quit, Poverty showed no sign of budging.
Indira became furious and cut off her own head and shoved it up her arse. It was as though a great darkness had fallen upon the land. Pranab Da humbly beseeched Indiraji to poop out her own head so that it could be reattached to her neck. 'But will I still be allowed to speak out of my arse?' Indiraji inquired. 'Ma'am' Prabab replied, 'By the grace of the Mahatma we can do nothing else'.
