West Bengal’s arch apportion is a sum rockstar! Last week she determined her certification as an hostess standard excellence, even handling during times to shroud Bollywood Badshah, Shah Rukh Khan. This is no meant feat! Didi’s song-and-dance uncover during a ancestral Eden Gardens was so riveting, it hogged radio time and wiped out any other news that moist afternoon progressing this week. This was Didi’s personal “paribartan”, and her flattering fans went gaga, perfectionist some-more and some-more of it. The “new, improved” Mamata Banerjee was seen in a “never before role”, as Bollywood publicists rush when a heroine raises a bar (Vidya Balan in The Dirty Picture). Here was a extreme arch minister, slayer of fire-breathing Commie dragons, best bondhu of Hillary Clinton, a TV guest who walks off shows, a lady who sees a Maoist, not a splendid tyro doubt her in a studio, a persecuted essence who’s assured a Venezuelans are plotting to kill her… though during a KKR “bhictory” celebrations, how she dazzled! Didi was seen simpering and embarressed while SRK hugged and kissed her
in a participation of thousands. Strictly loving moves, of course. Phir bhi! Wow!
After that extraordinary and astonishing arrangement of her softer, some-more delicate side, domestic pundits are left scratching their heads and wondering possibly Didi’s uninhibited act is expected to backfire… or will it acquire her additional spirit points?
Going by a rapturous support she perceived in her home state, it’s protected to say, her well-calculated pierce acted as an present pick-me-up… a upholder shot. It was like a parched male on a humid afternoon in Kolkata, walking into a Tolly Club and sipping noisily from a tankard of well-chilled beer. Ahh! What a feeling! The unsanitary masses going though essentials in farming West Bengal contingency have felt a same approach when Didi danced with Bollywood’s biggest star. The picture was certain and fortifying for a lowest of a bad supporters, mesmerized temporarily into desiring “aal eez well”. After all, even a Governor Saab himself was being led by a palm by their Didi, and swayed to join in a fun and games. As Bengali intellectuals from several factions conceded, despite reluctantly, given there unequivocally is 0 else value celebrating in Didi’s pennyless state, what’s wrong in some much-needed hoopla when a cricket group wins a bar tournament? KKR lifting a IPL prize was only what a alloy ordered. At slightest for those few overjoyed hours, it was probable for Didi’s supporters to forget their woes and laugh! Those of us who found these orchestrated shenanigans not only ridiculous though wholly out of suit were hooted out and discharged as “cynics”, “spoilsports”, worse. Self-styled analysts took heedfulness to deconstruct a Bengali essence and explain to a distrustful republic that it is in a DNA of Bengalis to applaud vibrantly by song-and-dance, any forgive being good enough. Look during how Bengalis suffer Durga Puja. Indeed, they have a point. But we find it tough to trust that these really same people did not see a jubilee as a flattering cold-blooded, image-fixing practice that was some-more a domestic convene than a extemporaneous entertainment of cricket fans.
At a time when Didi herself is disorder from several embarrassments and gaffes, along came a cricket prize that was rather circuitously related to Kolkata (via a name of a franchise). Bas! That was adequate to lift spirits and forget all else. A secretly owned, abundant bar had won this season’s tournament. No doubt it was a stirring finish and an excellent victory. But for a state supervision to get involved, done some observers (yes, those humourless cynics!) consternation about a politics behind a mass celebrations. Apart from a obvious, maybe irritating doubt (“Who paid for a party?”), stays a slow doubt about a charitable intentions behind a scale and demeanour involved. Was it not a crafty approach of pumping adult Didi’s fast loss popularity? As a strong uncover of strength, it contingency have assured her mostly ignorant and desperately bad cadres that Didi was still a Boss. Bigg Boss! Watching her in movement on a field, she was during once a sergeant major, trade controller, deejay and confidence in-charge. As she resolutely led a administrator by a palm and dragged him for a photo-op, it was flattering clear who was job a shots. When she screamed instructions into a mike, we gamble a humble masses possibly took cover, or scampered off to do her bidding. This was Didi’s show, and she wanted everybody to know it.
Well, a uncover is over. We have a code new, bona fide World Chess Champion in Vishwanathan Anand. Russian President Vladimir Putin himself has crowned him King of a chessboard. This is Anand’s fifth win. Ms Banerjee has got into a act again and demanded a Bharat Ratna for Anand. But we doubt she’s going to follow that adult with a large whack for him in Kolkata. Perhaps, speedy by Didi’s showmanship, will a equally challenging J. Jayalalithaa lift out a stops and line adult elephants for Anand’s feat parade? This only might turn a new domestic diversion in city — felicitating a few general sports stars. Not a bad plan, when we consider of it. There is a hairy “feel good” cause involved. And with a bad rupee’s catastrophic showing, politicians are desperately looking around for excuses to confuse a electorate. It’s a good thing during slightest some Indians are on a winning strain in something! Or else we would be forced to confront genuine issues, with 0 solutions. Then what?
No indicate seeking Manmohanji. Even his dentist has suggested him to keep his mouth shut.
