Tongue firmly…

… in cheek: we’ve just discovered a blog with some not-bad political spoofs…

Though India Inc. is still not out with a clear verdict, experts believe that even that’s a huge indication that how monumentally confusing this budget has been. “We were sitting here, holding our wine glasses, hoping for a speech ripe with numbers, figures, terms, even new kinds of taxes…anything that doesn’t make sense at all, and he exceeded our expectations. I mean, right from the first sentence where he said “physical” and meant “fiscal” – he was on the ball”, said Aditya Birla Group’s COO Coolraaj Chibbar.

We read that here.

And we were charmed by them for long enough to stay on till this gem cropped up:

Expressly dismissing the media reports and opposition interpretation that India had sold-out its diplomatic advantage in those few hours of madness, Prime Minister popped a cool mint and added – “That’s not true. At least there is no proof. At least we think so.”

That from here.

  1. Thanks Rajiv and Sanjay,

    for re-affirming my faith in constructive satire. Just the other day we were having a discussion regarding politicians’ sense of humor and how important part humor plays in a democracy.

    Cheers!

  2. Without Humor, you have Nothing!
