Right Note

Right note

               THE Congress has acquired the exclusive rights of Oscar-winning song ‘Jai Ho’ for its election campaign. Neither Gulzar, who has penned the song, nor Rahman, its music composer, may have thought that their song for Slumdog Millionaire could be used for wooing the voters.
The BJP, Left parties, BSP, SP, TDP, RJD and other parties too, must be looking for appropriate songs for their campaigning. Some songs come to mind, which may be suitable for various parties. This hit number may not be a bad choice for the BJP, ‘Tauba tera jalwa, tauba tera pyar, tera emotional attyachar.’ I have heard rumours that J.P. Bardhan and Prakash Karat are also thinking of adopting another song, ‘Chandini Chowk to China’ showing the Left’s inclination for better ties with our neighbour.
                The BSP is frantically trying to get the rights of a song that goes very well with its high command, ‘Desi girl`85.Desi girl’. The party thinks it could then give stiff competition to videshi-turned desi bahu Congress leader Sonia Gandhi.
                Amar Singh and Mulayam Singh, too, stand a chance if they could lay hands on the rights of the song, ‘Arre diwano, mujhe pehchano, mein hoon kaun .. Mein hoon don, mein hoon, mein hoon don.’ I asked an independent candidate what were his prospects. He said, “No party can come to power without us Independents,” while singing‘Maujan hi maujan`85 sham savere hun maujan hi maujan … .”

Indian Paisa Laundering (IPL) Series

“Investigate thoroughly and give the IPL trophy to the team whose franchise has transected the maximum black money to buy their team and have done maximum financial irregularities” was demanded by Jaspal Bhatti, the ace social satirist of the country. Jaspal Bhatti and the members of his Nonsense club were making fun of the IPL scam, in sector 17 Chandigarh.

Right to Scam

Comedian-actor Jaspal Bhatti wants a new right for the people of India – the ‘Right to Scam’.

In his own unique satirical style, Bhatti and his team from the ‘Nonsense Club’ Thursday enacted a play in Chandigarh’s commercial hub, Sector 17, appealing to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to allow the ‘Right to Scam’ for everyone.

“Right to scam shouldn’t be just the prerogative of powerful ministers but should be for everybody,” appealed Bhatti.

“The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan should be abandoned and a new scheme should be launched- ‘Sarva Ghotala Abhiyaan’. Every young and old should be taught to understand what a scam is and how to become a part of a scam,” Bhattisaid.

He said that “all the countrymen should be congratulated on India becoming the land of scams. Leaders like A. Raja should be decorated with national awards because he has taken corruption to new heights”, he added.

“Earlier, the government used to be shaken with a scam of one crore. But now even a scam of the magnitude of Rs.1.67 lakh crores doesn’t raise a murmur. India can truly be hailed as a land of scams. Not many people would even know the number of zeroes in 1.67 lakh crores. Because a common man today cannot count the number of zeros in today’s multi-multi-crore scams. That is why they are not in a position to react,” he pointed out.

Paying respects to the founding father of scams Harshad Mehta, Bhatti said that personalities like Telgi, Kalmadi, Yeddyurappa, Ashok Chavan, Lalit Modi, A.Raja should be crowned as new ‘Navratnas of India’.

“Since the children are the future of our nation they should be taught the latest scam techniques at the primary level. The ‘Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan’ may not guarantee jobs and placements but a thorough study of scams can help a child forge his way through college admissions and even get a job through his fake certificates,” Bhatti said.
