This is beyond funny

Laying down in bed, I made the mistake last night of checking Whatsapp. Sure enough, all the different groups were engaged in all sorts of political fights. One group – I think it was my MBA class group – or might be my engineering college hostel (dorm) group – was engaged in a discussion (I use the word mildly) about job creation in India under their favorite party’s rule.

Ever the sucker for factoids, I thought I should get a picture of what has been India’s overall job growth over a longer period of time – say two to three decades. So, I punched in “job growth in India” into Google search on my phone and this is what I got in my very first page results…

You cannot make these things up!! The articles by the same website were barely 20 days apart!!

I did the mental math. I had only two glasses of wine last night. So, it was not me.

I just put the phone back on the charger and went off to sleep.
