CHENNAI: You wouldn’t expect a doctor to have a sense of humour but Manoj Beno is different. The medical director at Billroth Hositals is known for his sense of humour and one-liners that have even found mention in magazines and books. Existential questions don’t worry him and he’d love to play god for a day to a monkey playing video game. Here is more about his take on his ‘godly’ connection...
Do you believe in the existence of god?
Newton’s third law says that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. If there is good, then there is bad too. So god definitely exists. As for the bad, here I am.
What if god was a man? Or a woman?
If god was a man, he wouldn’t be my friend on Facebook. If she was a woman, she’d definitely be my FB friend, and I will like and comment on her pictures.
What would you say to god if he/she appeared in front of you?
Do you have a cellphone charger?
If there was a dare/challenge you would like to give god what would it be?
I would dare god to make Tamil Nadu vote 100% in the next elections.
If god could grant you a wish...
I’d ask for world peace and 90,000 billion dollars. If somebody else has already wished for world peace, I will just settle for the money.
If you could grant one gift to God, what would it be?
I would give god a second chance to create me, and this time he’d better get me right. I really think he was distracted watching Game of Thrones while creating me. Now that’s just irresponsible!
