Random Thoughts of a Demented Mind won the Indiblog of the Year and the Most Humorous IndiBlog at the Indibloggies [polling statistics here] setting off mass hysteria in the country.
According to news agency Reumors, Kolkata went on a general twenty-four hour bandh, Mamata Banerjee asked for the resignation of the chief minister, Katrina Kaif signed another three movies, three more political parties demanded separate states, two more Bhojpuriyas were beaten up in Mumbai and Zardari got three billion more dollars in “non-military” aid.
Yes mass hysteria. Of the mundane kind seen everyday.
But the most riotous scenes were seen outside RTDM offices where thousands of people were seen shouting for iPods, Zunes and Santosh Mp3 players for reasons unknown.
Meanwhile a solitary man was reported at the scene pleading, in two distinct voices, one normal and one immensely nasal: ” Aare dudes iPod ko maaro goli, koi mera Fulltoo attitude Radio le lo…Please…..koi le kyon naheen raha hai…fuckall…..”
Citizen journalists also took extensive footage of a lady who was present near RTDM offices, a lady who identified herself as a certain Savita Bhabhi, recently unbanned by the government in order to reduce uncontrolled emissions in the run-up to the Copenhagen Environmental Summit .
According to people present at the scene, she kept on provoking the crowd with ” Aare chodo RTDM ko. Mere pass Ipod Touch hai.”
Opining on latest developments, expert-on-all-things Rameez Raja added his expert comments—- ” RTDM won more votes than its nearest competitor in a public voting competition. And that is why [with a contented smile] it won. You see the Citi secret in winning any election is to get the most votes. That’s the secret strategy. It’s not easy to understand that fact. As a matter of fact, it’s quite hard.”
In a statement to the public, RTDM spokesman Truckdriver Sooraj thanked all those who voted for the blog by paraphrasing a line from the song Bade Kaam Ka Bandaar [Aankhen] : “Jo vote kiya us ka bhi bhala, jo na kiya us ka bhi bhala” .
And then he gave a very special, most sincere bow of gratitude to every reader who has ever visited RTDM in the more than five years of its existence.
