If you were at Phoenix Market City last weekend, you’d recognise the man in the picture. Or if you ever watched Bakra on MTV or The Week That Wasn’t on CNN-IBN, you’ll know Cyrus Broacha. After the show, City Express spoke to the political satirist, TV anchor, and theatre personality into answering some fun questions on god. Here are his answers…
Do you believe in god?
I believe in god and I’m sure she is a woman.
If god appears in front of you, what would you ask him?
If you had to give him a dare, what would it be?
I dare you to make Arnab Goswami happy.
If you had to perform in front of the hundreds of different gods, what kind of jokes would you crack?
Only on the gods who are absent.
How would you describe god to a child?
I’d say god’s work in progress.
Your first words to him, in case he appears?
Alea Jacta est (all is lost, I surrender).
What joke do you think will offend him?
The consent of ‘egalitarianism’ as followed in India.
If you had to prepare a spoof on him, his life, what would your punch line be?
Godliness is subject to market risk…etc.
If he grants you a wish, what would you ask?
For a three-day working week, and two extra fingers.
If you had the power to give him a gift, what would you?
An umbrella, for cloudy days in heaven.
Do you believe in miracles?
Of course, otherwise please explain the 1983 World Cup (win by India at Lord’s).
What if god was an alien?
As long as she doesn’t eat me, who cares?
Do you have any wise words for the agnostics and atheists?
Use the phrase ‘oh god’ and you’ll be taxed heavily.
