Mohan: The Strong Man (A Play in 5 Parts) – Part 1

Note: A friend of mine sent me this. He doesn’t have a blog, and doesn’t want to be identified. It was too good not to publish. Of course, I have to add a few disclaimers. One, I support the BJP (“lighter shades of grey”) and am not a fan of the Congress. Second, all references to people you think you can identify are purely coincidental.

A November morning in Delhi. Mohan is sleeping. His secretary enters.

Mohan Secy: Sir, there is a phone call coming on the 2G network.

Mohan: Go away, let me sleep.

Mohan Secy: Sir, it is Madam.

Mohan: Oh. Why didn’t you wake me up earlier? Madam gets upset if I don’t answer the phone in one ring.

Mohan takes the phone quickly.

Mohan: Yes, MadamGG.

Madam: Mohan, I am reading this SMS that just came in. “The Prime Minister finally breaks his silence: The only 2G I know is SoniaG and RahulG.” How can you say such a thing?

Mohan: But, MadamGG….

Madam: You know, we only talk on 4G Networks. How could you forget PriyaG and RobG?

Mohan: Sorry, MadamGG.

Madam: So, what do you propose to do about it?

Mohan: MadamGG, I can ban all SMS like we did during Ayodha time. That worked very well.

Madam (angrily): Mohan, I am not talking about the SMS. I am talking of the 2G Scam.

Mohan: MadamGG, no one will ever find you and RahuGG got the money. I have erased all the entries in my…

Madam has put the phone down.

Mohan: MadamGG? MadamGGG?? MadamGGGG? What did I say wrong?

Continued tomorrow.
