Congrats India....

I take the 5.13 local and today it's my chance to treat my Train Buddies and I carry along with me ………Samosas, Pedas and Tea…. I handover these to my Train Buddies.

Akbar: It's not your birthday… why the Pedas ( because we usually get on item with the Tea)!!!
Me: Arre haven't you heard Modi has been chosen by the Readers of TIME as the Person on the Year…
Akbar: Pucca Ambani has a hand in this…..
Amar: Abhe Kejriwal ke Chele …… go home and check out the Persons of the Year list …… as it is all his allegations about Modi and Ambani have fallen flat… did Modi hike up the Rate of Gas as alleged by Kejriwal!!!
Me: I think as Indians we all need to be proud!!!
Antony: Do you know Hitler and Stalin too were TIME's Persons of the Year!!!
Me: I'll just give you the list post 2007… Putin, Obama, Bernanke, Zuckerberg, The Protester (Representing the Arab Spring, Pope Francis, Ebola Fighters and Merkel….. are they or they Countrymen ashamed …. and very soon TIME will put out why Modi was chosen … in the case of Hitler he got it for a negative image.....Hitler was labeled the "greatest threatening force that the democratic, freedom-loving world faces today." I think Modi has been awarded for Ratifying the Climate Control Treaty and for the path breaking decisions he's taken …especially those for upliftment of the Poor!!! And TIME will put out the reasons in brief for him being chosen!!!!
Akbar: You forget Indira's Gareebi Hatao slogan…
Amar: Arre they don't give awards for slogans …..if it was for sloganeering your Kejriwal would have been in the run!!
Me: And just next to the Times Tweet * that names Modi as Person of the Year there is Derrick's Tweet about Hitler and Stalin being Persons of the Year and then another Times Tweet…Eating handful of nuts prevents many diseases…. ha ha… he, Kejriwal , Mamtha and Rahul could start this Nutty therapy and get over their nuttiness!!
Akbar: I'm sick of standing in ATM lines…. Public too is livid…
Amar: Chall jhoote… you forgot I was standing just behind you on a couple of occasions and then you were cribbing…. how can Public be so understanding on being inconvenienced so much!!!
Me: Public understands that Modi's taken this decision for the Nation…. Political Parties may ascribe different stupid reasons… but like they say Public hai yes sabh jaanthi hai!!!
Amar: And now in both Houses Congress MPs are doing Jaap ( holy recitation) of….. Modi… Modi… Modi….. I think Jawdekar even pointed this out during a reply to a question….. I think it's good to do Jaap of a Faqir!!!
Antony: And I read on Whispers this morning that a few Netas and Bureaucrats will go to jail…
Me: Baat nikkle gi toh durr takh jaye gi….. another change in India…. now the PM does not do whitewashing and clean chitting…. that took place in the old days!!! Now you pay for your sins!!!
Antony: Don't worry we have a very vigilant Media ….
Amar: And now to counteract any subjectiveness in the Media there is the Social Media …
Akbar: Yaar logh …personal issue…..help me out … I am suffering from acute Constipation….. bahut boora haal hai….
Me: There's a new treatment for Constipation in India…. they say sales of Dulcolax and Isabgol have fallen… especially in Luytens and Luyten types of areas all of India…. people download the start of Modi's Demonitization Speech…. when he says Bhaiyo aur Beheno ….. prior to going to the loo many hear this and replay it a couple of times …and lo and behold…. constipation cured…. and for acute cases …. there's his speech in which he says he has more ideas to attack Black Money….
