Overheard Outside The Domestic Airport

Two firang men are standing in a queue outside the domestic terminal, waiting for the AAI bus to take them to the international terminal. As usual, there is confusion, chaos, and a bit of inaction. The two men, one of them an American, and the other one a German, are talking. They are cribbing about the state of affairs in India. There is nothing unusual except this one line by the German -

"After experiencing the roads, the trains, the airports in India, I wish I could go back in time and vote Merkel"

Indian Socialism - Strengthening the cause of a German free-market advocate! :)
