I Am Basically A Party Man
A K Antony, who took over as the Defence Minister, on Wednesday insisted he is “basically a party man”.
Yes Anthony Gonzalves, the original Party man, has returned. Moving into the same Kholi No 420 that used to be frequented by his predecessors like George Fernandes in the Defense Secretariat (now renamed Roop Mahal in anticipation of a ‘tension naheen lene ka’ future as perceived by our Foreign Minister, Pronob Mukherjee), Mr. Anthony, an experienced hand in walking the Prem Galis of power will now be seen at important occasions, popping out of an egg, poking important men in the ass with his umbrella and then delivering speeches like:
you see the whole country of the system is juxtapositioned by the haemoglobin in the atmosphere, because you are a sophisticated rhetoration intoxicated by the exuberance of your own verbosity….
[For those without the faintest idea of what is being talked about here, here, for your reference, are the lyrics of My Name is Antony Gonzalves from the movie ‘Amar Akbar Antony” where Antony Gonzalves emerges from an Easter Egg to seduce his lady-love Jenny.]
Angry at Anthony’s accession to power, Amar (Singh), India’s original party animal has started plotting, singing sincerely to Jayaylalitha : ” Dekh ke tumko dil dola hain, God promise, Hum Sach Bola Hain”.
Meanwhile Hurriyat leader and former Hizbul Mujahideen commander, Zafar Akbar Bhat joined his fellow freedom fighters on the streets protesting by clapping their hands and singing : “India government pyar ka dushmaan Hai Hai Hai”
Indeed, it seems that there is much truth to the lines:”Anhonee Ko Honi kar De, Honi Ko Anhonee, Ek Jaga Jab Jama Ho Teenon, Amar Akbar Antony”
Else how do you explain Times of India being awarded the World Young Reader prize in the Newspaper in Education category, with the award recognizing the TOI’s “effective use of newspaper as a teaching tool”.
And how do you even begin to provide a justification for why a site called http://www.desibabamovies.com (Link Not Work Safe–explicit pornography), offering Indian porn movie titles for paid downloads, advertises as a hardcore erotic flick: “Pather Panchali” which I believe, for the first time in world history, is being made to share the same HTML page as “Utaar Meri Choli” and, in a suspicious connection to the first news item, “Hot Picnic in Room 420” [Information correct as of today…I hope the site owners do realize their mistake as soon as possible]
