Poonam Pandey for Lok Pal


Thought I would attempt something different from my usual style - satire in news report style like faking news. If this is well received maybe I would do more in this style.

Latest to enter the fight for Lok Pal bill is none other than model Poonam Pandey. She has promised to go naked for the members of the parliament if Lok Pal Bill is passed. When asked what she would do if the government does not agree to the demands, she answered philosophically that the journey was more important than the destination. No matter what the government did, she would strip anyways. It is to be noted that she has in the past proven to be the good luck icon bringing success to the Indian cricket team and the Kolkata Knight Riders team. It is to be seen if she is able to repeat her success in the field of sports in the field of politics as well. If she succeeds, it will be set a precedent for an entirely new policy making paradigm. Not to be undone, another model Gehna Vashisht has lent similar support for the women’s reservation bill.

The law ministry is still evaluating the suitable response to this offer. One minister under anonymity has said many of the cabinet members are of view that the offer should be viewed as an educational experience that will help them understand first hand whether skimpy clothing can lead to sexual violence against women. This has been a burning issue with many women’s organization protesting against senior ministers and police officials’ observations in this regards. He has also quoted as precedent a study of similar nature carried out my certain members of the Karnataka legislative assembly on their mobile phones.

Television channels meantime have petitioned the prime minister for a free and fair auction of the television rights for the strip act. They have warned that if the rights are allocated arbitrarily, that could be the first case going before the newly constituted Lok Pal. A spokesperson of leading television channel said showing a young woman sacrificing clothes for the nation would make much better sense in terms of TRP than an old man sacrificing food. Mean time Mahesh Bhat and Ram Gopal Varma are rumored to be competing for the rights to make a film on the life and times of Poonam Pandey. Poonam Pandey is said to have demanded the lead role in the film. But both directors felt Sunny Leone would be a better choice to play the role of Poonam Pandey. They felt she was more in character for the role.

Inspired by Poonam, Veena Malik is said to be contemplating a similar movement in Pakistan. Scared by the developments in the neighboring nations, the ruling communist party in China is said to be considering introduction of mandatory Burqa for its women to pre-empt any similar movement that can potentially upset the country’s political stability. US defense analysts are closely watching this move. They suspect a Chinese conspiracy to rally all the oil rich Islamic nations on its side.

I am reminded of our Father M K Gandhi, who encouraged women to part with their personal jewellery during the freedom movement! Yes, we have travelled (progressed!) much ahead!!

Diwakar Narayan said...

Nice attempt..though I would like you to write more of this and excel.

amit said...

If Poonam Pandey ever tries this, I think not just Lokpal but all the other bills pending in that session will be passed in one day.
And then there will be a long queue of celebrities joining the cause.

ghanchakkar said...

LOL :D. I like the way you have written the post. And the sarcasm you have tried to made on the different countries.
I would say you should write more this genre.

Keep Blogging :)

Hi TF

Good attempt . 'twas a nice read .

Ghazala Hossain said...

I am not fond of political write ups, but you made this fun :)

umashankar said...

TF, I read it in the morning itself! For reasons best known to my phone it kept crashing every time I wrote a comment... (PP Effect?)! Finally, here I am with my laptop, determined and itching at the prospect of a parliament drooling at the sexy missile in pin drop silence! Hopefully, some of them will have cardiac seizures due to the live show after all! And thank you for the beautiful depiction of the Television channels. They are just that - not a penny more, not a penny less! And hey, this will have firmly put to rest the clandestine poring of pornographic clips on mobile phones and thus save the nation from unnecessary scandals.

Honestly, I felt enchanted even as I sensed a wisp of hesitation from your pen. Fear not. Lunge ahead, Battle Speed!

Thanks Ghazala. Even I usually try to stay clear of political topics though that is what I wanted to write about when i started my blog.

Deepa said...

LOL, Poonam Pandey never fails to entertain does she. Good use of talent. Oh, I meant you! I don't usually read a lot of political stuff, but this was fun! :) Looking forward to more such from you.

The Fool said...

Thanks for the encouragement, Deepa. I will surely attempt this kind of stuff occasionally.

pistaboy said...

I would have 'ROFL'd if you have written this whole good post from a first person perspective. Anyway, it made to 'lol' now! :)

The Fool said...

Thanks pistaboy. Thats a good suggestion. Maybe next time. This time I tried the typical newspaper style that all satire sites do. In first person I could not have written about China, USA and all. I doubt she would have the intelligence to understand such things.
