No Indian liberal will ever forget May 16. But I had forgotten about it. For me it was just another day. And they call me a “Bhakt”.
Until Modi reminded me.
I think the reaction in the media was one of disbelief. It took them a while to digest that the most evil of all the dark lords of the UPA regime had been raided.
I have always believed that Chidambaram was the most shady character in the Congress regime. Like Shashi Tharoor, he always got a pass for his excellent connections in dark places and skills of smooth talking.
Now, I am confident that one raid will not expose this many hooded cobra, but it sure was a gift for Modi’s most ardent supporters. More importantly, it raises expectations regarding May 16 of 2018. What do we get on that day? A raid on the properties of the evil Queen herself? Don’t keep us waiting Modi ji…
Barely had the media picked its jaw up from the floor that there was a second punch.
Mr. Fodder Thief responded with his usual smoke and fire routine, his own version of Kejriwal’s “Eent se eent baja denge” :
Ha! Yes, Lalua I have heard enough of your empty boast for over 10 years now. Since 2004 and even before that, you would talk of becoming India’s Prime Minister. What happened, loser?
I remember Lalu ji in a moving campaign vehicle, waving to the crowd and repeating “Bhajpa hatao” (Remove BJP)
What happened loser? Who got removed? BJP or you? Since then BJP has given the country 2 Prime Ministers. BJP has 13 Chief Ministers right now.
How have you fared in the meanwhile, loser Lalu Yadav? Your party has been rendered so helpless that it cannot even claim the CM post in Bihar despite being the largest party.
Shut up now Lalu ji! We have seen your comedy for decades. You have become old now. In Bihar, we would say that you have become like “baasi bhaat” (yesterday’s cooked rice). You belong in the gutter. Mumbling vague threats against RSS/BJP won’t work.
But I think the best moment of the day came a little before midnight. That’s when this news item caught my attention.
My first reaction? Only 20! We need 2000 minimum. Make sure you shoot and shoot straight. There shouldn’t be a single Naxal left alive. Go to Bastar, go to Jharkhand, go to Odisha and wherever necessary and hunt these Naxals down and kill them.
You know, this is one of my favorite exchanges from the American sitcom “That 70’s Show”
Doctor: What you need to do is focus on things that make you happy
Eric: Okay, . . . But . . . I don’t know where we’re gonna find a boat load of dead commies
A boat load of dead Commies! Nothing makes me happier! Well done CRPF! This is just the kind of gift that would make the day for this “bhakt”.
