Boring politician in a borewell..!
“There’s somebody fallen into the hole?” shouts his PA to the TV station. “Who?” “A minister!” “Oh, let him be, we have other events to cover than rescue operations of a minister!” However on instructions of higher ups a cameraman is called: “I want you to cover the event!” shrieks the PM, “I want the nation to see how my ministers react when there is a crisis!” The cameraman is sent to the village and walks to the hole where he lowers his sound equipment to where the minister is.
“The minister is weeping! He wants food!” says the TV man “I have sent down tea and glucose biscuits!” “Then what is he crying for?” “He wants tandoori chicken with Hyderabadi biriyani, and he wants the waiter to knock before entering the hole as he might be in the midst of some private activity!” The camera man inserts a long chord into the hole which has a camera at the other end, there is a roar from inside the hole and the livid face of the minister is flashed on the screen, “He is angry!” says the cameraman.
“He thinks it is a spy cam,” says the PA. “Tell him it’s not or he may damage my camera!” “This is not a secret camera, you are on TV!” shouts the PA into the two way mike and immediately a pleased look comes on the minister’s face as he also whispers something, “He is asking for a make up artist!” “Is this going live to the nation?” asks the minister. “No!” “So who will see it?” “Only you and I, nobody else is interested!” “When is the rescue team coming?” “They said they are not interested!” “So who will rescue me?” screams the minister from below. “I don’t know and I don’t care!” says the PA, “and it is getting late and my family are waiting to be taken out for dinner and I’ve promised them…” “Tandoori chicken with Hyderabadi biriyani!” smiles the cameraman as he pulls the audio and video wires out of the hole, “Come lets go, I’ll give you a lift to the main road, and lets leave that boring politician where he deserves to be; in a borewell ..!”
