When you play with children, choose to lose. Winning means a whole new world to children.
When you play with religious leaders, choose to lose. If they don’t win against you, you are damned. Read history if you don’t believe me. The best scientists, the best artists, the best writers, all chose to lose to religion. Remember Galileo, for example. Or Leonardo da Vinci. Salman Rushdie is a living example. There are infinite examples in between. Religious leaders are children. With the difference that some of their physical organs have grown beyond childhood.
When you play with politicians, never lose. If you lose, you are doomed. The best is never play with politicians, unless you are an incorrigible crook or you are desperate enough to be shot dead in some encounter-killing-game staged with the help of the state machinery.
Now imagine playing with a religious leader who is also the chief minister of your state. Having watched some of the TV appearances of Yogi Adityanath, chief minister of UP, I understand that the people of UP are moving into some very interesting games. I wish the people all the best.
The game is getting popular day by day. I foresee an interesting future for India. ‘Interesting’ is a terrible word.
