To err is human. To blame someone else is politics.
– Hubert H Humphrey
If you are Yes’nt with the above, trust me, you stand a greater chance to secure the hot-seat in some high-octane TV Debate, blame-storming is a niche skill nowadays! May be you get to say 2-3 words, all with the mercy of his highness, the anchor, in a healthy debate in an environment full of amity! If not, read on…
Are you bored with a 9 to 5 Job? Did you win G.K Quizzes in school? Are you pissed off at (you aren’t sure yourself) at the rocketing prices? Is your love life wincing (the platonic one)? Are you still in discomposure & trying to figure out if (at all), the previous questions are even mingy to you? If the answer to any or all (Boolean logic indeed) is Yes , then you must grab a pop-corn, hit youtube, or switch on the idiot box & doss – start watching soap-operas! Sorry, typo indeed, watch national news.
Now, let’s get to some atavism, remember how K-soaps used to rule the prime-time much to our despair & mom’s delight ; we have its dead ringer in entertainment today – prime-time news, offered in a buffet like spread, as long as your DTH is recharged, & remote is in your hand, there are lots of them ; scrutator anchors claiming to be the voice of the nation, the Shahenshah of all debate moderators in the world, scientists (sorry!) news anchors presenting well-researched articles of how currency notes are embedded with nano technology based GPS chips with equally borntiduos background music (Hail God!) , a lovely shoulder dancing lady , even claiming antediluvian evidences of a particular community having deep roots in Indian culture & the other only bedding terror spreading outfits en masse, huh! that is so secular of them, so constitutional . All this & much more with a palpebral pace! Excited to have this platter? Aren’t you? Indian Politics is no more the boring politics where the talks were on development, youth empowerment, education, DO we really need all this? Won’t we be more interested to know the cost of the bandgala worn by a great saint-cum-leader, or laugh at equally amazing jokes that a half-baked dynast cracks, and ends up getting trolled by the troll-junta! (they are an indispensable part of our population!).
Readers, I am having a sumptuous dinner every other day, as I have my DTH never missing its recharge much like Sheela aunty’s visit to the beauty parlor, it’s the regimen for a healthy lifestyle after all. A politico a day, keeps the logic away! Ah, logic? What’s that anyways?
My sacrifice for this post, I had to miss a report on Taimur’s fart! Put a G on it guys!
