However the Questions in the Survey itself didn't seem to serve much purpose personally! For a forward caste, private employed, middle class Tamilian this survey had no expectations though!
I have enlisted a few Questions that amused me and a few that really didn't:
Aadhar Card number - Yes | Ration Card - NO
~ Wasn't this exercise all about weeding out bogus ration cards in the first place?
Mobile Number - Yes | Fixed Land line number - NO.
~ "House" hold survey right?
Water Connection & Can Number - Yes | But not how frequently water is supplied in the locality? - NO
~ For the record: Once a week for 1 hour.
Electricity Bill number - Yes | But not how many hours electricity is supplied (or not supplied)? - NO
~ For the record - presently 5 to 6 hours power cut every day.
Type of Asset: Air Conditioner? - Yes | Why not Automatic Washing Machine, Double Door Refrigerator, Geysers, LCD Televisions, Persian Carpets and lot more such luxury items?
~ Who decided this query?
Pet Dogs - Yes | Why No cognizance of the dozen rabid stray dogs on the street lying right in front of the house? - They make life miserable!
Epic signing off: I solemnly declare the above in the name of God / Self. No other options?
Forced Bandh: Buses, Autos, Taxis, Shops, Schools, Colleges, Offices, Banks, Diagnostic Centres, Petrol Bunks and even a few Hospitals - every thing was closed - Roads Deserted Wine Shops remain open whole day!
~ It's a topsy-tipsy survey !
My wife was enlisted as 'Housewife' but Mother was not - Reason: There is only 1 Kitchen in your house. - Outrageous.
