The day began bad. As usual. PC’s election in Sivaganga constituency caught the eye of the Madurai bench of the Madras High court. I overheard someone in the PMO saying Chidamba-RAM ki Siva-Ganga maili ho gayi hai PC ke paap dhote dhote. I frankly do not understand all these jokes. They call them puns. Anyways, I am extremely delighted to note that instead of Sardars, they are now making fun of
Madarasis. Sorry, sorry. Cut cut. Tamilians.
Insert info : I am told this is a take on a Raj Kapoor film, `Ram Teri Ganga Maili’. The heroine in the film later had a relationship with Dawood Ibrahim. Now I understand the PC connection. I wouldn’t know. I have seen only `Shri 420′ of Raj Kapoor.
BJP as usual asked for PC’s resignation. Jayalalithaa asked me to sack PC. I am feeling like laughing so much. Madam never gave me a sack when she made me PM. Now that is called a good joke.
But why is Madurai bench creating problems for PC? I must ask Pranab. Or, let me ask Rajiv Shukla. I overheard him saying on phone to someone to bench chod the other day. I thought he was discussing some seating arrangement in Lok Sabha. Now I know he must have been talking about someone leaving Madurai bench. (But why? Please check with Shuklaji)
Good I keep my ears open. I must tell Sonia ji.
Towards afternoon, some good news. Parliament Secretariat allotted a bungalow for Sachin Tendulkar in Rahul Baba’s neighbourhood. I know what Baba will say. This is a gamechanger. (Note : I must tell Madam, this smart point too). Now Baba can learn to hit some boundaries from Sachin instead of only sledging the bowler all the time, tearing off the rival captain’s team list. I tell you, Baba’s coach Diggy is no good. (Must discuss at next CWC).
Obama called early evening. Always good to talk to him. He is tense because of his election. He asked me how I manage to look so cool. I told him my secret, secretly. I told him I don’t fight election.
Asif also called. Zardari. I did not take call. Bekaar ka sardard. Keeps asking when will I come to Pakistan. I have told him earlier also jab ticket book hoga tab bata denge.
Ok, I am getting late. I have to go to Rashtrapathi Bhavan and meet President madam. She was angry last time that her house in Delhi was not finalised. Must fire Narayanaswami. I should call some property dealers from Janak Puri and take them with me to meet President Madam. She may want the same bathroom fittings that Montek has got installed at his office. Should call Montek also. Ab yeh Montek ka number kahan hai.
Ok bye for now. Busy time. Will update later.
