Popat's interview

Our custodians of democracy are up in arms against what they call “unwarranted judicial activism.” Are politicians feeling the heat with courts breathing down their necks? Rajcreep Sorefake finds out in this exclusive interview with 4 time MP, Popat Lal Pyjamewala..

So things are not going smoothly between politicians and the judiciary, right?

PL: we don’t accept any interference in the way we work. We don’t like anyone telling us what to do, and what not to. When we have the audacity to ignore the electorate who vote for us, do you think we will listen to these people?

Why are you having a debate in parliament on the role of judiciary?

PL: actually, last week we had run out of issues. Infact this whole month we have been facing a paucity of debatable issues. Thus, we had to pick up some pungee issues on which we could do sometime pass and show the nation that we were working. This is why you saw a debate on the Indian cricket team’s debacle in South Africa. We have now prepared a list of such issues to debate in case we don’t get any real issue-which we are sure of.


So what other “serious” items will you be discussing?

PL: Oh, we have some real stuff planned which are of much importance to the aam junta. We will be discussing the Abhishek-Aish wedding, putting more statues in the central hall of parliament, hiking our pay amongst others.

How exactly would the common man benefit from all this?

PL: People have been complaining about the lack of quality debates in the house and Doordarshan was complaining about the falling TRPs for the parliament sessions that they were showing live. So we hatched upon this new plan to discuss things which people normally discuss in pan shops and other joints. We wanted to bring more spice in our debates so that even the deve gowdas could stay awake and participate in the discussion.

The moral standards of MPs seems to be coming down like the fortunes of the Indian cricket team..your comments .

PL: what a sad comparison. Please call us dacoits, bandits, bandicoots, thieves and even hit us with slippers. But please don’t compare us with the Indian cricket team. These guys are performing worse than us at the moment.

But everyone says that it is politics that is ruining the team

PL: see this is what is wrong with the country. When something goes wrong, we blame it on politics. If your promotion is delayed, it is politics, if there is some infrastructure problem in the country it is politics.. For a change why don’t you credit us for something good?

And what good could politics have done for the country?

PL: hmmmmmmm….(appears to be in deep thoughts). Excuse me, I feel that my phone may ring anytime. So, we will have to end this here. Namste.

The MP and his langot then vanished into thin air…

Its winter again

Winter is here again and as I write this piece I could almost hear the sub zero winds blowing outside the window. It seems that the drop in temperature has started affecting the brains of some people in my office. This lady in (mostly attired in blue) sitting in a cubicle beside me has increased her telecon chat quota to almost 1:15:33. I am subjected to everthing from those consistent gigles to funny threats that she dishes out to her boyfriend every now and then. She makes it a point to ensure that her collegues are fully aware of all the events happening in her love life. The first time I heard her, I thought that she was screaming out to someone else sitting in another bay. Imagine my surprize when I realized that was not the case!! So what else is new? Nothing much except that I miss those evening walks that I used to take when I was working for a co near MG Rd. It was fun to be lost among the friday evening crowd and bump into people you wouldnt have seen for ages. Well gotta move on for now..will post more soon-till then
