Subrata Roy, the Sahara Parivar tycoon now in Tihar jail, is seeking an early verdict because he can’t take the Delhi heat, it seems. Sir, what about all those small-change people who believed your tri-colour packaging and invested in your company?

Last year, you made 1.2 lakh employees stand in line and sing the national anthem together, remember? And you happily went and splurged investors’ money on cricket and formula racing. All to fly the Indian flag, of course. Jhanda ooncha rahe hamaara.

But frankly, Managing Worker sir, what is the agenda behind the jhanda? Also, would you spare a thought for the unpatriotic investors who want their cash back now? Cash back? As if you were some stupid credit card, no?

How could they speak so cheaply about a deshbhakt? They are saying if Tihar is so hot, your Sahara is infernal. Hell, in other words. Show them a mirage. That’ll shut them up. Who’s doing your SFX, sir?

Digvijay Sings

Congress spokesman Digvijay Singh (67) has admitted he is in a relationship with a TV anchor. Her name is Amrita Rai. She is in her early 40s, and works for Rajya Sabha TV.

Now, this admission has set off a furore. Because, apparently, lots of TV anchors were under the impression they had something going with him. Something special. He would land up at their studios every day and chatter away. Share funny stories. Say tantalising things. Throw random mud pies. Crack jokes at the drab BJP guys. Smile sweetly. Sigh. Our resident gossip Pillow Rani wants to fly to Delhi to comfort Arnab, Rajdeep, Barkha and all those other anchors who feel hopelessly adrift.

As the song goes, (Diggy) Raja ko rani se pyar hogaya. One BJP leader in Bangalore was envious or outraged we don’t know. He was muttering, “Raja ko rani se pyar? Hogayya!”
