Woh pareshaan karte rahein……a tale of Kejri’s never ending talkie

Drama Queen, the song starring Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra in the movie Hasee to Phasee was a hit with its catchy lyrics and Vishal-Shekhar music. But there has been a conundrum, in the new Kejriwal drama queenalike. The ad not only rightfully glorifies the AAP convenor as some type of Amitabh Bachchan in “Jadugar”, but also re-emphasises the basket of dreams that the AAP as a party is still living in. Shazia Ilmi, the middle aged pretty face of news television could have continued her innings on television news. But she chose to jump in politics of change that Kejriwal was offering.

But the real drama started to churn out a bit early. The egoism which started to bore fruit has its roots even before the AAP and its idea took shape. NDTV was reporting in early 2012, how Anna may soon form a political party of his own. But soon, the great opportunistic Mahatma that the man of Ralegan Siddhi is, backed off. The “pareshani” that Kejriwal ads talk about today, started that very day, when Swaraj, the book of Kejriwal was launched in front of eminent personalities including Anna Hazare amidst the Ramleela frenzy.

Vinod Mehta, said that seeing the mirage of relation between the old man and his subordinate, on the occasion of release it would take a real miracle to stich the two together. So Hazare, became the first cause of “problem” that Kejriwal ads complain about. The two soon parted ways. In the same manner Kiran Bedi, who stated her accomplice with Anna openly claimed, “Kejriwal has a unique mannerism of overdoing everything.” The two Magsaysay awardees were at necks at the juncture. Bedi, whose BJP empathy was evident became a cause of problem or pareshani again. Shall I mention about the Kejriwal ads once more?

Then came the turn of the media- who, alleges Raj Thackeray painted and conceived the AAP. The media which stood erected behind the newborn, now began to turn the toll of things. The notion of “sab chor hain” very soon applied itself in the gardening of conspiracies and utopian theories Kejriwal and Kejriwal ads are potent at. Arnab became livid at the meritocracy of AAP not to send a single spokesman to his channel! The drama continued. Somnath Bharti who excels allegedly in beating up wives, became the martyr in the eyes of Kejriwal.

Bharti even forced Nigerian woman to what Chatur of Three Idiots calls “Mutravisarjan”. But more than that, if Kejri sacrificed something-it was his usp of commonality. Somnath Bharti’s wagging of fingers could not satisfy the krantikaari intellectuals who vouched for him as a leader-neither a dynast nor an inessential chest thumper. Then, came the promo-spoof to the republic parade, which made the Delhi CM adorned in a muffler, a quarrelsome, self-obsessed caricature and anarchist. The Kejriwal ads for sure will never talk about the “pareshani” the common man had to incur because of his tantrums and self-triumphalism.

The Anil Kapoor last solo hit “Nayak” seemed to have heavily influenced the matter and molecule of Kejriwal’s character. The ‘Parivaartan” which brought the IRS officer to the porridge of activism failed to train him with the idea of extensive realism. The recent theatre of the absurd played out by Arvind, after securing a stout victory only proves the character orbit of the man- limited to confrontation. Delhi police, for God’s sake has never been the inherited treasure of Narendra Modi. So to take barbs at him as per the rules of the continuum only reaffirms the David vs Goliath foetus still beaming in his heart despite the Varanasi blunder.

Ashutosh’s book says that Kejriwal broke down after the Loksabha disaster. The AAP confectionary in Bengal merged into the BJP bakery. “how did this happen?’ Arvind said as tears rolled down his cheeks. Well, I could not but drone myself with this melodramatic overdose. Actually, Shazia Ilmi is somewhat correct to the statement, that the profession of acting suits Arvind as a better vocation. The Kejriwal ads only seem to glorify the man, who many a times have not missed an opportunity to deify himself!

Yogendra Yadav, a socialist liberal who inverted the rightist tilt of the AAP and its “thou affaire” with self-invested belly showing Gurus, had to be heckled (if the pseophologist is to be believed along with the legal eagle Prashant Bhutan) and abused by the vigilante justice system demanded so often by the AAP conglomerate. Now, as the noose widens around the electorate of Delhi, the Kejriwal ads say,

“Woh pareshan karte rahein, Hum Kaam karte rahein…”

The mockery which started with the earlier Kejriwal ads hopefully (though I am sure it hasn’t) has called for a close. Most of the achievements ironically in the chest thumping process are mere assumptions, yet to be started. Again to bring in a filmy corollary, it looks like just how the name and available diction of the upcoming movies become the centre of discussion in the public platforms, the Delhi CM also expects his still to be started work to make a buzz and sound. An opposition leader rightfully remarked, “He can make news out of nothing.’

If the history of masala-ised talkies which AAP is so adept in producing, directing and acting are anything to go by, Kejriwal is not embarrassing his DNA. He is also not trying to be in the news. Because, his is a party with a difference- a metamorphosis between a normal human brain and a human brain with abnormal features. So stick to the sits. Pop corns chalega kya?


The Geelani dilemma and the Namo Compromise…

The AFSPA and Article 370 presented to some extent the antipodal ideologies which surround the demeanour of Amit Shah and Mehbooba Mufti. The cause of Kashmiri nationalism has a troubled past with the first Prime Minister playing an irresponsible role of sorts. Nehru it seems was too much inclined to buy himself a name when he himself participated in the Kashmir dispute-a digression from the rulebook. As,Sardar Patel played a pivotal role in integrating the entire country, the sensitive part of the north western frontier was left to the romantic, idealist and to some extent anglicised Motilal scion.

The change which was brought early this year as backroom negotiations under Ram Madhav finalised the bridge between the Hindu driven Jammu and Muslim driven Kashmir. But, the silver lining of such liberalism stood more as an incarnation of opportunism and power rather than inclusivity. The deal sealed between the two parties with absolutely opposite world views was great for photo ops.But just having sex does not necessarily bring platonic love.

The 3 month stand between the two parties is just a rude example of how blatantly power hungry the BJP has been.There was a certain grey bearded bachelor called Narendra Modi who called Kejriwal,an agent of Pakistan when the now side-lined Prashant Bhushan advocated for a Kashmiri referendum. But the same PM also called for the debate on Article 370.What unfortunately we see now is a quid pro quo vision shared by the Muftis and the Jitendra Singhs.The MOS with an absolute nonsensical view said that the deliberations on Article 370 has started. The Media furore against it was justified.

The traditional left leaning journalists suspected the right wing authoritative lurch which may succeed such a statement.But what was seen was not only unacceptable to the hardliners in the BJP,but was also satisfying for the anti nationalist elements breeding freely. The waving of Pakistani flags even yesterday was disturbing enough.It does suggest how the situation has exceeded the volatile situation half a decade back.The release of Masarat Alam during The Union Controlled Governor rule has further shown how miscalculative the trimurty of this Government had been.

The issue of Visa somewhat challenges national interest over humanity. What will a separatist do?-hold on to the principles of his life of being anti Indian or backtrack to visit his ailing daughter.The Indian Government has an opportunity of catching the separatist throat and reaffirm its faith towards making the almost defunct Shimla Agreement better equipped.#Patriotismforpassport is a social media trend today.For now atleast, the PM’s long visits can wait.

AAP-the bAAP of a Bastard-part 2


The stings have long been interlinked with the natural psychosis of AAP.Well even if Shazia is in her brother’s party now,she was caught in a sting in the pre 2013 Delhi elections.A video also showed her calling on Muslims to be “communal”.Now I am not a conspiracy theorist like RK Dhawan,the personal assistant of Indira Gandhi in the 70’s.Well for newbies,there is more to “Dhawanism” than David,Varun and “Gabbar”!But judging the present circumstance of sabotages in the new bloom, Shazia may well have been a target of a wider conspiracy.Yogendra Yadav tweeted a few days back                                           

“Na todenge na chodenge,

Sudhrenge aur Sudharenge”

(neither will we break nor will we leave,will improve and make improvement). But when in itself the “idea of AAP” which the rebels talk of today takes education from IIN what really can you say! Arvind and Anna could really have been twins.The double standards easily flaunted by the iron man of Ralegan Siddhi and his once charioteer “Sanjay of the great epic” Kejriwal is only matched by “Netaji” of UP. Anna citing health reasons failed to attend Mamata Banerjee’s meeting of a meagre 400 heads.Categorically the old man branded the Bengal CM as a clean leader,invariably a jehadi against corruption.Well, even Madan Mitra may well not be able to digest this goof!

Anna fearlessly declared that no political leaders will be allowed in his manch against Modi Government’s much hyped land bill.Magar dekhiye rajneeti ka rang! Arvind was seen sharing the stage with Anna moments later! Honesty once against lost his father.

Why should Kejriwal be far behind Ussain Bolt? When branded as Aam Aadmi, he prefers to fly economic class!In his interview to Sudhir Chaudhary his notion of being a  common man changes.He says that even a rich man leading an honest life is an Aam Admi.Applying that logic poor people living in ghettos and slums who are forced to pay bribes are criminals? Honesty hounded once more. 

The so called “hope” is seen giving kicks to the rebel duo on the phone.Honesty anyone?The so called propagator of honest politics indulges in poaching MLAs from Congress to join his party authorizing what Subramanian Swamy and Ajay Maken said long back.Honesty? Bouncers being used allegedly against the dissenters.Embarking honesty?

Ashish Khetan,the former journalist who exposed snoopgate today has to defend Kejriwal’s horsetrading. Medha Patkar of the Narmada Bachao Andolan fame and Anjali Damania have quit the party which promised decentralisation of power. The coterie in Delhi will take decisions of its own and will capitalize the future. The stung Arvind today has lost the ground of morality.Today when the self inducted Lokpal is impeached on ambiguous grounds,its sure to proclaim the birth of a Stalinist democracy.Hitler made the German Parliament Reichstag ceremonial. Indra Kumar made the story of Grand Masti titular.Prateik Babbar made acting substanceless.Sonakshi Sinha made the question of Kgs weightless.Arvind bhai,the IITian has made farce of Newton’s third law of motion.There is inside a lot of action,but the reaction is not equal but redundant.Vinod Mehta,the late “Editor of Editors” last year after Arvind resignation marked it as “end of hope”.I will add-end of hope for honesty.A man who discards support of the call girl-Shahi Imam talks vehemently about 3 Muslim MLAs and their prospectus of joining their party.

AAP may perform well in governance without resigning once again. But the moral USP of honesty that the safed topi bragged of stands victimized.Imandari today is a bastard. The Father has lost authority over his son today.Hence AAP today is the baap of a parentless endeavour to clean the filth of the political drain….
