Really extremely funny and nice. I will not be surprised if you are flooded with applications from several politicians, since most of them are desperate and cannot discriminate between a joke and fact and also since, most of them would like to roam about incognito or totally disappear till things are forgotten. More than 33 percent of the politicians, MPs and MLAs are either ex-convicts, or charged with FIR or have already undergone imprisonment of varying terms. Wish you a real wind fall .

Reading all the comments including yours, I'm tempted to make this into a real business 🙂 Sadly, this might be one recession proof business, as you've pointed out.

(ROFL) infinity… can't stop this laughter express!! loved all the escape routes… production costs may run high because u'll need to run an outfit larger than the NSA to maintain databases and maintain apprentices!!

hey, i'm beginning to suspect 'somebody' is out to scam the scamsters!!
Under offers and deals you could also add a seasonal offer: "sponsoring" pilgrims on 'ultimate' yatras to places of great merit to earn "huge brownie points" and say "yeah, you can't have the cake but i can eat two!"
