When Jayanthi Natarajan quit the Congress…

Jayanthi Natarajan…
I admire Nehru.
I admire Nehru’s daughter.
I admire Nehru’s grandson.
I accept Nehru’s granddaughter-in-law.
Sonia…
Then why can’t you admire and accept Nehru’s great grandson?

Irony…
The granddaughter of a CM complains to the granddaughter-in-law of a PM about the great grandson of the same PM invoking the legacy of the daughter and grandson of the very same PM.

Ajay Maken: He tore up the ordinance!
Jayanthi Natarajan: He tore up my career!
Congress worker: Sigh! He tore up the party.

If you signed the file that cleared a wrongdoing, you are guilty.
It doesn’t matter who told you to do it.
‪#‎JayanthiNatarajan‬ ‪#‎ManmohanSingh‬

Past Congressi eras…
Mera Nehru Mahaan.
Meri Indira Mahaan.
Mera Rajiv Mahaan.
Current…
Meri Sonia Mahaan.
Coming soon…
Mera Pappu Mahaan.

Jayanthi Natarajan: Will India listen to my Press Conference?
Advisor: Well that depends on whether India will hit out in the slog overs or get out.

Sun lo Pappu ki baat…

US Prez leaves in the morning.
Mann ki Baat in the night.
In between Delhi voters get entertained with Congress Vice Prez’s Pappu ki Baat.

Rip Van Pappu.
Sleeps for 20 days, then gets up and rants.
Sleeps for 20 days again, gets up and rants again.
Sleeps, gets up again and again and again…

Pappu is the Arnab Goswami of Indian politics.
He sticks to his personal script no matter what the debate/situation around him.

Nehru-Gandhi Dynasty till 2013…

When Obama came to India’s Republic Day…

Obama visits.
Obama walks.
Obama stops.
Obama moves.
Obama smiles.
Obama thinks.
Obama sad.
Obama glad.
Obama sits.
Obama eats.
Obama blinks.
Obama…
#TVCoverage

Since Obama is the chief guest, it would have been fitting to have a Call Centre Tableau.

Globalization…
The US President is in India for our Republic Day.
The Indian cricket team is down under for their Australia Day.

There is a silent moment where silent prayers are being said silently.
Even cricket commentaries have not seen such lows.
‪#‎ObamaCommentary‬

Everyone knows India and US are the two largest democracies in the world.
Fact of the day…
China and Pakistan* are the two largest dictatorships in the world.
(*The Army chief always rules Pakistan either directly or indirectly)

These versions by Sunil Rajguru

Spot the difference…

Monarch of his empire.

Military commander.

Multiple wives.

Rampant capital punishment.

Medieval mentality.

(But seen by many as a moderate.)

Personal untold riches.

Financial prosperity for his kingdom.

Architectural construction boom.

Are we discussing Shah Jahan of the Mughals or King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia?

No wonder US President Barack Obama was hard-pressed for a choice between Shah Jahan’s Taj Mahal and King Abdullah’s funeral and finally chose the latter!

2015: Media says no Modi Wave, gives extra attention to Kejri.

2013: Ashutosh puts his foot in his mouth again and again.

AAP versus BJP in Delhi elections…

World War I: AAP versus Congress.
World War II: AAP versus BJP.
World War III: AAP versus ex-AAP/IAC.

When Kiran Bedi joined the BJP…

The ABC of Delhi politics…
AAP, BJP & Congress.
But it’s finally down to A or B…
Arvind or Bedi.

Changing Times.
2011…
Bedi: Main bhi Anna.
Kejriwal: Main bhi Anna.
2015…
Bedi: Main bhi CM.
Kejriwal: Main bhi CM.

One section of the BJP will be known as the Bharatiya Janata Congress while another section will be known as the Aam Janata Party.

Bengaluru: The city of a thousand multiplex screens?

seating-2240032_640In India, PVR’s first 11-screen multiplex was in Bengaluru. (Forum)

PVR’s second 11-screen multiplex was in Bengaluru. (Orion)

Now PVR’s third 11-screen multiplex is also coming up in Bengaluru. (Vega)

Bengaluru will also become the first city in India to have two 9-screen multiplexes. (A lot of cities have only one.)

We already have Marketcity even as Xander is coming up.

As if that’s not enough, then they’re also planning another 7-screen multiplex (Elements).

This is not even counting the other multiplexes of other brands.

When I first came to Bengaluru, someone said it was “The city of a 100 cinema halls”.

With the way it’s going it will soon be known as…

“The city of a 1000 multiplex screens”.
