CHENNAI: Stay-at-home dad, stand-up comedian and now debut author Suman Kumar has been wise-cracking about a lot of things — right from how people wrongly and excessively invoke phrases like ‘soldiers are dying in Siachen’ to watching ‘bittu’ movies while growing up. The debut author has just released his book Ranga Half-pants about a boy going back to school to find that he’s the only kid in  his class who is still wearing half-pants. Here’s what he has to say about god:


First thing you would say if god appears before you?


One thing you would ask god for?

A super power. The ability to successfully book tatkal tickets on IRCTC.

What profession do you think god would take up if he was on earth?

A bartender, because god watches the world getting drunk on religion and acts like he has nothing to do with it.

If god was a woman?

What makes you think god is not a girl in the first place?

Time to go the Bruce Almighty way. Three things you would do if you were god?

The first thing would be to legalise marijuana. Second, ban men from politics. And third, make learning Tamizh compulsory for north Indians.

Your most godly encounter ever?

Meeting Gounder (comedian Goundamani)

The funniest thing that happened to you when you were at a place of worship or when you were supposed to be doing something religious?

A man jumped the darshan queue at the Tirumala temple and the missus ran after him and slapped him.

Anything else you want to add?

Make cracking mokkai jokes a non-bailable offence.
