Rishwat
At the BSE Expo function yesterday in New Delhi, the Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting ( and Finance ), Mr. Arun Jaitley spoke against the 'aberration' of paid news in the media.
 Mr Jaitley should be reminded of the nazm of the famous Urdu poet Josh Malihabadi ' entitled Rishwat', where Josh says :
" Agar hum rishwat naheen lenge to phir khaayenge kya ? "
i.e.
" If I don't take bribes, what will I eat ? "
 The entire nazm is recited below :
