Ok, so here's the deal. No crap.
What do you get out of the below two pictures?
If you find something common, mail me. I owe you 50 bucks for possessing common sense.
If not, then abuse me in the comments section(you will, by the time you finish reading this).
The first picture is of a book which released a week ago.
The author : A nondescript human, an under-performer, an abusive and arrogant player called Shoaib Akhtar.
The second picture is of a book which releases today.
The author : An acclaimed nursery rhymes author whose signature is more illegible than my doctor's RX prescription.
SA(hereafter for Shoaib Akhtar) and CB(Chetan Bhankas) both wanted to release books.
Both had faded out of public memory, both did not command any premium.
Both needed to be a Rakhi Sawant to be able to grab eyeballs.
SA said 'Sachin-Oh-My-God-Tendulkar' was afraid of him and that his legs shivered when he bowled to him.
Though the whole world laughed him off and his own countrymen scoffed at him, he got what he wanted.
Now it was CB's turn.
He couldn't mock at Sachin because there wasn't anything in common.
So he carefully chooses a sentence out of a whole speech which emphasized more on the way IIT selection pattern should change to make a point for himself.
Today NDTV's Sagarika Ghose interviews him and he turns a cat.
I quote :
Sagarika Ghose: But do you regret what you said about Mr Narayana Murthy and Infosys?
Chetan Bhagat: No, not really. I mean I wanted to, my point is very valid. And in fact, I was speaking to the Infosys people and they have agreed that, you know, why bring the students in to it. Why judge the students? It may even be true that he has something he feels about the quality of the students. But, it's very high-handed. Same way, when I call Infosys a body shop it's high-handed.
Where is all your bravado? Your swagger? Mr Bhankas?
Today you are suggesting that it was a mere tit for tat?
Let me tell you, you have no tit and don't have any gut to tat if at all there was a tit.
You are the same guy, right? The one who cried like a baby all over the media when your name did not appear in the credits of 3-idiots?
Your conflicting views in the media for 2 full days held the nation to a big soap opera.
It was only after Aamir Khan clarifed that a water tight contract was signed on this, and that you had got what you deserved, did you shut your pie-hole.
A lot of like thinkers have chosen to be soft on you, but I am extreme right wing.
If you say,
"I think it's like something ingrained in us. If someone takes an attack on your college, you've got to defend it. Won't you? "
I say, I have an equal right to decimate you my dear rhyme writer.
Bodyshop is a term coined by the hegemonistic Britons and Americans who like jingoism about India because they just aren't capable of securing jobs for the amount that we do.
Bodyshop is a fictional term for the Indian IT industry.
Bodyshop is something which is far from the reality of a $7.25 billion company.
Least of all, if bodyshop is the company you are talking about, then you are cheap unsold meat.
I have had the horror and pain of reading just one book of yours on the call centre.
I haven't read a more frivolous, shallow and comic book like material anywhere else.
The supplementary English text book of my 7th grade (not the main English text book) had more absorbing stuff.
I moved with the horses when I read the Trojan war in the 6th grade.. but 20 years later, I slept when I read about the call centre.
That book also had a disastrous movie made on it.. but that's for another day.
The cry baby was set right by Aamir Khan in 2009 and I am thankful for that.
May God bless Aamir Khan.
Now coming to your accusations about the bodyshop.
Uncle CB, I would invite you for a day to come and do the work.
I would urge you to do this because only then would you realize how difficult it is to earn a single dollar from bargaining clients who would hunt you down like wolves.
I challenge you, work with me, earn a dollar for my project, and I would advertise all your comic books for the rest of your life.
It's easy to be like Rakhi Sawant, but not Mr. Murthy.
A person who has had a modest beginning and having risen to where he has, commands a lot more than you do uncle.
You would never get written about in any business column of any newspaper.
That's because you never earn for others. He does, his brand does.
Next time, when you launch a book, make sure that you go to malls and multiplexes to advertise your version of crap well so that you are able to sell it.
Just don't mess with the mindset of an industry you have no clue about or should I say never could be a part of.
Stay in your den and I will stay in mine.
Mail me, if you need clarifications.
PS : I didn't want your name or your comic book's name to appear on my website, so I hired a person to do graffiti on your book's poster.
Mail me, if you need any clarifications on this too.
What's new with me?
I feel i have grown up.. because these days i look down on the younger generation :)
