A New Comedian Sriprakash Jaiswal

Posted on: October 2, 2012

Sriprakash Jaiswal is a national figure thanks to his statement that old wives are no fun. No sooner did this ill fated sentence leave his mouth than every wife old and young including husbands both married and yet-to-be-married jumped at his throat.

When the demand for an unconditional apology reached a shrill crescendo, Sriprakash Jaiswal beat a hasty retreat at sensing the hostility blaming the media for “quoting him out of context” and apologising only to those whom his remark had caused hurt. This selective apology is looking like a new trend setter. (One won’t be surprised if such selective apologies end up becoming the flavour of the season as tempers run high in the electioneering and tongues do the odd slipping acts here and there.) So much for an unconditional apology.

There are no genuine comic figures around. Gone are the days of Johny Walkers and Johny Levers. Lalu Prasad Yadav was the pioneer who introduced buffoonery into the art of politics and became known for infusing fresh lease of life into the monotonous parliamentary procedure every time he spoke as an MP while debating or introducing any controversial bill. Mr. Sriprakash Jaiswal is only carrying forward this tradition so that the scam struck common man gets a healthy dose of laughter once in a blue moon.

The government is kind enough to unleash on its hapless subjects a noble soul like Jaiswalji who finds it amusing to provide much needed comic relief. Media is a willing party in this laughter game of government. They will shove the mikes into the mouths of leaders turned comedians and show the footages of funny one liners to their viewers. If the script goes awry and the heat becomes unbearable, the media will happily accept its fate as the ultimate fall guy.

Sriprakash Jaiswal’s spin doctors have already fired the writer of their master’s funny one liners. The TV channels are also contemplating the move to sack the editors who quoted that old wife remark out of context. The winner in all this blame game is Sriprakash Jaiswal whose stock has risen overnight with the party high command sitting up and noticing him.

The moral of the story is getting into the limelight for wrong reasons is far easier than grabbing the attention for all the right reasons. Long live the temptation to become famous that drives every mortar being to act as a weirdo!

After receiving lot of money from coal scam, Jaisawal ‘sathia gaya’ and appears to be taking too many pegs to suit his health from all angles.
