Rolling for Rahul…(& pass the sick bag while you’re at it, please)

I am not making this up, I swear I am not.

Can you credit it?

 

You have to laugh, simply because this is so barking. So patently daft. So utterly pointless. And also, to be honest, creepily sycophantic.

But, please, please, please, if I have misunderstood the whole thing and there is some deep meaning, some major significance attached to rolling around in honour of someone, won’t you please enlighten me ?

Is there some profound spiritual significance here (other than sycophantic self abasement) that I, as a mere foreigner, have missed?

I await your replies…

Pass the sick bag. Again.

My friend Brinda Dubey commented yesterday that she couldn’t bring herself to read many more (or was it any more…the latter I fear…) of my political blog posts, so sickening was the content.

I hope, therefore, that she will not take it amiss if, despite her remarks, I dedicate this post to her.

Enlightening the nation…vision of India…steely determination…

Yes.

Sorry.

It’s one of THOSE posts.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you yesterday’s dollop of Nehru/Gandhi sycophancy.

Courtesy the Indian tax payer.

I would’ve posted yesterday, except that my poor old Mauritian cat, Tifi, had 2 diabetic seizures, so for once my ranting and raving about the stomach churning sycophancy etc etc took second place, but I couldn’t not share them with you, now, could I?

I am sure you all know, but just to remind you, Jawaharlal Nehru was the father of Indira Gandhi who was the mother of Rajiv Gandhi & therefore the mother-in-law of Sonia-ji and […]
