  1. South Asia is a bedding ground for foolishness, because the region hasn’t got enough resources to enlighten the people. Foolish leaders allow the people to multiply, but not realising they are multiplying foolishness.

  2. We see many fools in Scotland with tiger flags. You have allowed the fools to multiply, now they have become a driving force of the foreign powers ;–))))

    Whatever goes around comes around.
