COMIC RELIEF


It has been a while since I wrote something after “A Truth’s destiny”. Sorry for taking a rather long break. But this hiatus was not a self imposed one. Sometimes creativity doesn’t listen to us. It is more like nature and we are at own peril to try and change its course. And being an ardent lover of nature and creativity, I decided not to interfere. We set ourselves certain standards and there are times when you feel that something is missing in your writing. I did go through this phase wherein I found all my writings incomplete and lacking in zest and life. And I have also been occupied with a lot of other things and so haven't found time to indulge in things close to my heart. But thankfully I have successfully restrained myself and have not subjected you to those works of mine which I would have second thoughts reading! I am also sorry for not having read quite a lot of your blogs. I plan to do that as well as soon as possible. 

Anyways… Thank God there is humor that acts as a much needed elixir in testing times. So amidst this drought of creativity, I still have some comic relief to offer. And thank heavens.. our politicians are there to lend me a helping hand in my efforts. Just imagine how sad our lives would be without them. So here I bring you a very short preview of things to come in Indian politics. It has already being touted as the battle to watch out for in the future. Clash of the Titans, if you would! Come 2014, and you may well be talking about this epic collision. Okay.. before you guys plan to kill me, I sadly break the suspense. It is none other than the Modi vs Gandhi war. I can hear a few chuckles already. For those who are not yet amused, you can see the first teaser below.





Now that we have seen a glimpse of the future, we can come back to the Present. The phrase “Status quo” has never had so much significance, thanks to this man. A man who I am sure will have difficulty recognizing his own voice (I can hear you say "If he has one"!). They say there is calm before a storm. And it has been a long and eerie calm. So I leave you with: “The Immovable Object!” Now please don’t ask me who is the “Irresistible Force”?

      The second one is indeed unfortunate. He is a man whom I respect too. But I guess he has been in the wrong place and with the wrong people for a really long time now. :(

You are very modest and good human being but please don't take such a long break. About the first one, MA works everywhere and this bollywood classic dialogue is COALDEN....:)

    1. Saru.. you are one of the most brilliant writers I have ever seen. If you consider your work is below standard, then I probably should not even be writing. :)

  23. Great ones. Between MMS's silence and the opposition's strident demands, and a President who is the most political person to hold the office, it may be sooner than 2014.

    1. Thank you so much Subho. :) You are right. The political environment is very volatile now and things look ominous indeed. And with all the parties and their policy stands, one thing looks sure: no policy can be easily implemented. That is indeed a sad state we are in now.

  24. Haha! Love the 'mere paas maa hain.' How true!
    Damn good.
    Did you see that picture doing the rounds of FB. Somebody meeting Mr. PM and calling him 'cute' and another saying, 'No he's mute,' or something like that.
    Gosh, these people are so inspiring as far as comics are concerned; so much material for political cartoons.
