I was there at Arvind Kejriwal's presser at the Press Club of India yesterday but there was a foul smell all over....so I asked Mr. Kejriwal about it.
AK: Yes, yes, I agree this presser is not going smoothly..these journalists are asking too many questions.
Me: But journalists are supposed to ask questions.
AK: No, no..they can ask questions but they are asking as though they are owners of HSBC.
Me: But sir, the HSBC is a great bank...why do you want it to be shut down. Actually, its the SBI which should be shut down.
AK: Why shut down SBI? They should remain open since it takes months to open an account there. But HSBC should be shut down because they open accounts over telephone.
Me: But that means HSBC is so efficient.
AK: Efficient my foot. I hate HSBC.....they are efficiently corrupt.
Me: You mean they are like Ambani Brothers?
AK: yes, yes, and how dare they open accounts of Ambani brothers?
Me: But its obvious that Ambani's have the money...surely the poor can't open accounts at HSBC.
AK: Exactly, thats why they should be shut.
Me: But ok ok, I wanted to know why this place smells...you could have held this presser at Lodhi Gardens...
AK: Look I dont know where its coming from....but all I know is that journalists are asking too many quetions and they are also saying the `Khulaasa' has not been verified by them.
Me: But exactly, you name all the biggies and do you want even the jouranlists to be charged for defamation..but this place smells awful.
AK: I really don't know...
Me: But Ambani's say their rivals are leaking wrong information...so do you think the smell is something to do with rivalries.
AK: What rivalry...the Congress is in their pocket.
Me: But that means Ambani's must have big pockets.
AK: Big and deep?
Me: No, but still I don't know where this smell is coming from...its hard to breathe.
AK: I am serving the country so I don't smell anything except corruption.
Me: But surely, you cant expect all HSBC employees to become like you...they sit in nice offices..and its doesn't smell there....and no one shouts there..they play instrumental music...
AK: Exactly, thats why SBI is better..there are crowds and crowds and smell and shouts...and fights....
Me: I really don't understand all this..so do you think all income tax officers should also quit the government?
AK: I didn't say that...they are serving the country so they should not quit.
Me: But you mean only HSBC employees need to quit to serve the country.
AK: Don't waste my time...I have to do 500 khulasaa's in the next few days...
Me: But your Khulasaa's smell too much..what did you eat? Did you eat a Dabur product?
A.K.: Dabur, never...they are so corrupt ...these Burmans.....I never eat Dabur.
Me: But that means you prefer their rivals - Baidyanath..
A.K. Yes, I like their churan.
