Humaare 2 WMDs...

I'm meeting my friend who is a Dalal Street Stock Broker at a quaint little Restaurant a stone's throw fromDalal Street. The place serves sumptuous Guju food and over Khandvi and Dhoklas and oversweet tea we start talking.

Me: So Markets seems to have absorbed the Tata shock!

Friend: Actually Earthquake che …. but 100 points fall shows news absorb thayi gayo (got absorbed) !!

M: Market had no inkling about this ….

F: Not that I know of!!! And now after Mistry's exit the mystery starts…. when did all this start ....why???

M: I know if the Market had an inkling there would have been so many derivative forms of betting …..

F: Ha ….ha….. side income!!! But what surprises me is despite the reasonably good results of the Tata Group still he's been sacked….. hmmmmm…… the joke here is from Being Cyrus the new DVD in Tata Group is…. Prem Rattan dhan paiyo!!!

M: Ha … ha ….will Mistry gulp this down as bitter medicine???

F: No … I don't think so…..but you never know….. the Parsi Network can work in mysterious ways!!! And then remember Pallonjis have a very sizeable holding in Tata Sons...its in their interests too .....Tata Group does not trip itself!!

M: Mistry … mystery … and more mystery!!! Achaa what is the market saying about the SP fight!!!

F: See Amar Singh had indicated some time back that there would be a big bang in SP in October…. so my guess is it's a planned fight….. I think they are actually fighting anti incumbency in an ingenious way....by fighting between themselves !!

M: But to many yesterday's mike grabbing …rage and melodrama made it all look real!!

F: Sabh scripted hai….. and seems after being close to Bollywood for so many years all of them have learnt acting… and what to say about Amar…. he's penned the story… screenplay and directed this drama … why he's acted it in it too!!! Amir Khan's Dangal is reel life ...this is reel life Dangal...

M: As of now what's the feeling in the Market about UP results….

F: BJP will emerge has single largest Party…… followed by BSP then SP!!!

M: What about Congress … you did not mention Congress!!

F: Don't matter one bit… Congress will be last….. after Independents!!!

M: What is the Market's perception of Rahul Gandhi!!!

F: I don't think the Market takes him seriously…..

M: Like many in his own Party!!!! But do you think a couple of more debacles and Congress could fragmant!!

F: Arre ….. Congis have been de-spined to such an extent that they need a Gandhi to lead them…. even a tiny tot of the Gandhi family can be their Leader!!!!

M: Fevicol hai …. keeps power crazy Congis together!!! What about Punjab????

F: I hear Arvind Kejriwal made some wild allegations and when Amrinder challenged him to a debate he slunk away naming others in his Party for debating!!

M: Achaa...he was trying to tell Amrinder ...you are not of my stature ....but Amrinder was the CM of a full fledged State ...Kejriwal is CM of a semi State ...

F: Or he thinks because he keeps trying to elicit a response from Modi his stature is bigger!!

M: If you ask me ...we have two WMDs... we should send both to Pakistan... Amar Singh ..Our Weapon of Mutuality Destruction ... and then Kejriwal.... Weapon of Mental Destruction. .....one will make half of Pakistanfight amongst themselves ...and the other would make the other half of Pakistan mad. ..
