Congress: NDA repackaging UPA policies.
If you say NDA is bad, then UPA was also bad.
If you say UPA was good, then NDA is also good.

Indira and Sonia Gandhi became Congress President after exactly Zero years’ experience as MP.

The Let’s give each other the Bharat Ratna Game…

The “You scratch my back, I scratch yours” troika of founding fathers…

In 1954, Jawaharlal Nehru recommended that Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan get the Bharat Ratna and Rajendra Prasad conferred it to him.

In 1955, Jawaharlal Nehru recommended that Jawaharlal Nehru get the Bharat Ratna and Rajendra Prasad conferred it to him.

In 1962, Jawaharlal Nehru recommended that Rajendra Prasad get the Bharat Ratna and Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan conferred it to him.

Like father like daughter…

In 1971, Indira Gandhi recommended that Indira Gandhi get the Bharat Ratna and VV Giri conferred it to her.

In 1975, Indira Gandhi recommended that VV Giri get the Bharat Ratna and VV Giri’s successor conferred it to him.

When Pappu went on long leave…

Sonia will go on earned leave, Pappu on forced leave and Priyanka can’t take leave because she’s never worked in her life.

If Pappu quits the Congress, then it will be the biggest ‪#‎BlowToModi‬ ever.
A new decent leadership might actually put Congress on the path to revival.

Politics is in your shirt.
Politics is even in your sabbatical.

Pappu: Main chutti lena chahata hu.
Congress: Arre! Aapki ki toh May 16 2014 ko hi chutti hui thi.
Workers: Chhutta nahin hai bhai, aage jao!

Pappu is the only politician who went on sabbatical the day he joined politics.
He keeps re-appearing enough times to just to retain membership of his organization.

Has anyone heard of Windsor Manor?

I went to Windsor Manor (now ITC Windsor) after years.

Most of the autowallahs looked at me as if I was talking about a foreign country.

Old Airport Road? JP Nagar? They queried. I think only the 10th or 12th autowallah had heard of it.


When I came to Bangalore in 1988, there were only 3-4 5-stars including Windsor Manor which was a landmark and every autowallah knew it very well.

Windsor Manor was also the famous setting for Kamal Haasan’s Pushpaka Vimana film in 1987 (The Windsor Manor bridge scene with the dead beggar is iconic) and was once the hub of the high and mighty.

New Bangalore has slowly been crushing Old Bangalore out of existence and at least people like me have been denying it for years.
