Mohan: The Strong Man (A Play in 5 Parts) – Part 2

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.

Mohan is pacing up and down his room, looking quite upset. He is talking to himself.

Mohan: I am not weak. I am strong. I am Strong. I am STRONG. I am a Strong MAN.

Mohan’s Secy enters.

Mohan Secy: Sir, there is a call from the Second G.

Mohan takes the phone immediately.

Mohan: RahuGG, Good morning.

Rahu: I wanted to buy Ireland.

Mohan: Sure, RahuGG. In which Ocean should I look for the island?

Rahu: Idiot, I said Ireland, not island. Aiy-er-Land.

Mohan: Oh…Sorry, RahuGG. I will get my ears examined.

Rahu: So, I was saying, Ireland needs $100 billion to save itself. I was reading it on

Mohan: Is that it? Even after paying for it, you and MadamGG will have $362 billion left over.

Rahu: Exactly. Your maths has improved since we spoke last. You been taking count-and-point lessons from Vir?

Mohan (shyly): Hmmm….

Rahu: Ok, Ok. Can you arrange for the Buy? I don’t want Sharad or Kani beating me to it.

Mohan: Yes, RahuGG. I will arrange for it. Ireland will be yours tomorrow. Is there anything else?

Rahu: Yes. One more thing. I am looking for a New House. I will tell you after I speak to Mom.

Continued tomorrow.
