Original Story:
The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house & laying up supplies for the winter. The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool & laughs dances plays the summer away.

Lalu Prasad allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Indian Railway Trains, aptly named as the 'Grasshopper Rath'. Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the 'Prevention of Terrorism
against
