As young children, we made use of to lust and lust right after imported Walkie-Talkie dolls. In these times, these items arrived from Japan, not China. The dolls were blonde, good-wanting, spoke English and wore Western dresses. Sachin Pilot is Ashok Gehlot’s Walkie-Talkie doll. A desi, Designed-in-India doll. He is not blonde but speaks “good English” and is “handsome”. Khallas! He is performed for. There is no place for these types of adult men in present-day Rajasthan. Bechara Sachin – is it his fault he was born to very good-seeking parents and sent to a good Air Force University in which he was taught good English? His English should have been quite damn fantastic, for he received into that snob citadel, St. Stephens College in Delhi, and worse, went off to Wharton later – where by his very good English and excellent seems ought to have been recognized and admired. Tauba! This is significantly not alright. As Ashok Gehlot has pointed out, currently being handsome and speaking excellent English “is not anything!” Anything but, Sir! This is a large disqualification! We don’t want educated men and women in federal government to begin with. Especially not people who speak good English. Negative English chalega. That is a further issue. But remember to – certainly not the very good variety. As for fantastic seems to be – see, we want our netas to resemble toads and croak like them also. Sachin Pilot obviously had much as well numerous strikes versus him. Ashok Gehlot is certainly proper – this new generation has not been by way of what his technology has – they’ve been to fantastic colleges, very good schools, they are educated, articulate, bold and capable. Tch! Tch! Yeh new generation ki badi galti hai, sirji…
What do these padhey-likhey fellows know about the serious globe of netagiri? Kuch bhi nahi. Jaaney do.
Chalo, Sachin has been sacked. He ejected from the cockpit. But the poor chap’s parachute failed to open on time. Like some media-wallas headlined their report, Pilot was unceremoniously ‘derostered’. Now he finds himself in no man’s land. The outdated ‘dhobi ka kutta’ story is enjoying out with Gehlot smirkin, gloating and likely to city about the new era, which is so faltu, people fantastic-hunting gentlemen only know how to give excellent sound bytes, but, as he asks pointedly, “inside their hearts, – kya hai?” Sir, attempt the most recent edition of choli ke peechay with a gender twist – Kurtey ke peechay kya hai, Kurtey ke peechay? Arrive on, Gehlot-ji, the reply is the exact same…dil hai, dil. Stable dil! You also have a dil, na? Just after 40 years in politics, possibly that dil wants a very little dhak-dhak. A solid jolt. Due to the fact, real truth be advised, Sachin Pilot’s technology has oomph. And the needed skills to guide a younger region like India. Itna toh sach hai. The person is pretty cool – a commissioned officer in the Territorial Military vaghera. Aapney bhi kuch aisa kiya hoga.
Massive place is this, Gehlot-ji – agreed, Sachin Pilot ruined his possibilities to oust you and come to be the Chief Minister of Rajasthan, settling as an alternative to settle for a Deputy Main Ministership. You are now declaring he is a misfit since he’s handsome and speaks fantastic English. Hi there! What about your manager and Sachin’s ex-manager: Rahul Gandhi? He is tremendous-lovable. And speaks great English. His sound bytes are priceless. Have you peeped powering his kurta and appeared inside his dil?
Now what? Are the several Congress loyalists nonetheless hanging about, going in for a big impression makeover? Will they stop talking good English? Stay clear of sound bytes? Play down their appears to be like? Bad Shashi Tharoor – now we know why he is not taken severely by the Superior Command. This also explains why Babyface Jyotiraditya Scindia and a several other Peter Pans in the Congress bash experienced to conquer it – Rahul Baba need to have been sensation maha insecure. Even although he is the just one with the dimples! Uff, far too much opposition in the Congress magnificence pageant…
Oh effectively, there’s always the BJP for the also-rans.
