A Tale Of Mamata Banerjee’s Nephew’s Slap

Posted on: February 29, 2012

When was the last time we had two slappers hogging the limelight all through the day? It doesn’t happen everyday, does it? Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Akash Banerjee and Sharad Pawar’s slapper hogged the limelight right through the day. Poor Sharad Pawar’s slapper has been receiving severe beatings from some unknown men ever since he planted that controversial slap on the equally controversial cheek of Sharad Pawar. His plight is getting highlighted by media because even the police are unwilling to register a case and bring the guilty to book.

The second slapper of the day is  the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Akash Banerjee. Akash Banerjee allegedly slapped a traffic cop who is said to have booked him for some minor offence. Upon learning his close links with Didi the police let him off. But as soon as the mercurial Didi learnt of the incident, she ordered her nephew be arrested again so that the law could take its course. This is really one of the most innovative ways of remaining in the news. The other day a Hindi Film Super Star created ripples across the country by slapping a hapless nobody in a party. Needless to say he got plenty of publicity. Last week, another aspiring Super Star fractured a nose that belonged to a wealthy businessman NRI and earned truckload of free publicity for his upcoming (supposedly) magnum opus that looks like a dud going by the promos on the TV channels.

When these film stars can slap and walk away  leaving their victims red-faced and  nose fractured, how can we expect the politicians or their relatives to remain quiet? Nowadays a slap can get you plenty of free publicity for a day. A slap is a novel way of getting into a controversy.  The moment people receive the news of some poor soul becoming a victim of a slap, they get curious to know why this slap and who slapped whom? The echo of that slap is so loud that it gets heard across all social networks.  It is by the same token that Akash Banerjee became a celebrity for slapping a traffic cop who had shown the guts to book him for some offence. Akash Banerjee is a nice chap. Nobody could believe him for having indulged in such inappropriate behaviour when this news initially broke. People thought it was a case of mistaken identity. But now it is an established fact that he indeed slapped a traffic cop. What could be the reason for this provocation? Why someone as decent as Akash Banerjee could do something as indecent as slapping a traffic cop? There’s certainly more to it than what meets the eye.

Sources close to Akash Banerjee say he has been upset at the way Sharad Pawar’s slapper is being ill-treated by some unknown men. He has been upset at the entire police force that has not offered any security guards to Sharad Pawar’s slapper. When a person slaps a VIP, he too becomes a VIP. This is why he has every right to get the VIP treatment. Since the police and the public have failed to recognise Sharad Pawar’s slapper as a VIP, Akash Banerjee has taken this drastic step to express his solidarity with Sharad Pawar’s slapper. Now he knows what it feels like to be a slapper. It is a crowning glory that doesn’t come easily. It is a revolutionary step which is bound to set a new trend in the contemporary India – a trend of giving due respect to the slappers and shoe-throwers.

Long live Akash Banerjee!
