IT IS MODI ALL THE WAY IN BIHAR PART 17 - NITISH FALLS FROM FRYING PAN TO THE COAL AND GRASS FIRE -JUST FOR LAUGHS
What happened behind the scenes? Why did Mulayam ditch the Pariwar, after making so much out of making Nitish the CM face, even as his own Sambamdhi was pitching for Rabri as the CM and himself the CM face.
If you understand this story, you will know the truth.
A CEO (and member of Forbes 400!) throwing a party takes his executives on a tour of his opulent mansion. In the back of the property, the CEO has the largest swimming pool any of them has ever seen. The huge pool, however, is filled with hungry alligators. The CEO says to his executives "I think an executive should be measured by courage. Courage is what made me CEO. So this is my challenge to each of you: if anyone has enough courage to dive into the pool, swim through those alligators, and make it to the other side, I will give that person anything they desire. My job, my money, my house, anything!"
Everyone laughs at the outrageous offer and proceeds to follow the CEO on the tour of the estate. Suddenly, they hear a loud splash. Everyone turns around and sees the CFO (Chief Financial Officer) in the pool, swimming for his life. He dodges the alligators left and right and makes it to the edge of the pool with seconds to spare. He pulls himself out just as a huge alligator snaps at his shoes. The flabbergasted CEO approaches the CFO and says, "You are amazing. I've never seen anything like it in my life. You are brave beyond measure and anything I own is yours. Tell me what I can do for you."
The CFO, panting for breath, looks up and says, "You can tell me who the hell pushed me in the pool!!"
Now, you imagine who pushed the CFO in the swimming pool?
So, when he heard about the tussle for CM post in Bihar, MSY called both Nitish and Lalu, along with all those aspiring to CM faces to Lucknow to his house.
He told a story.
There was a magician who was doing the most dangerous feat ever heard off. He was keeping his head in the open mouth of a Tiger and the Tiger was not harming him. But there was a pre-condition that there should be pin-drop silence in the auditorium. The magician got a very good name in the country. The king heard of him. This king was always feeling that he should only be honoured first.
The magician went to the King's court and performed. Once, the magician kept his head in the tiger's mouth, all the courtiers clapped. The tiger got scared and closed his mouth.
"Now, the man who answers my question will be the CM face." So saying he served dinner to all and gave them time till next morning.
All went to their beds but could not sleep. Lalu alone slept as he knew the answer as Mulayam was his Sambandhi.
Nitish waited till midnight. He called AK. He told the story verbatim and asked him to suggest the correct reply. AK then told the following story.
A Mime in a Zoo
One day an out of work mime is visiting the zoo and attempts to earn some money as a street performer. As soon as he starts to draw a crowd, a zoo keeper grabs him and drags him into his office. The zoo keeper explains to the mime that the zoo's most popular attraction, a gorilla, has died suddenly and the keeper fears that attendance at the zoo will fall off. He offers the mime a job to dress up as the gorilla until they can get another one. The mime accepts.
So the next morning the mime puts on the gorilla suit and enters the cage before the crowd comes. He discovers that it's a great job. He can sleep all he wants, play and make fun of people and he draws bigger crowds than he ever did as a mime. However, eventually the crowds tire of him and he tires of just swinging on tires. He begins to notice that the people are paying more attention to the lion in the cage next to his. Not wanting to lose the attention of his audience, he climbs to the top of his cage, crawls across a partition, and dangles from the top to the lion's cage. Of course, this makes the lion furious, but the crowd loves it.
At the end of the day the zoo keeper comes and gives the mime a raise for being such a good attraction. Well, this goes on for some time, the mime keeps taunting the lion, the crowds grow larger, and his salary keeps going up. Then one terrible day when he is dangling over the furious lion he slips and falls. The mime is terrified.
The lion gathers itself and prepares to pounce. The mime is so scared that he begins to run round and round the cage with the lion close behind. Finally, the mime starts screaming and yelling, "Help, Help me!", but the lion is quick and pounces. The mime soon finds himself flat on his back looking up at the angry lion and the lion says, "Shut up you idiot! Do you want to get us both fired?"
Now, Nitish! You tell me which is the Political Party like this Zoo. And who is the Chief Mask? (CM). Who is the Zoo Master? (ZM)
"It is simple! Your party is the Zoo. You are the CM in the mask of a Jackal and the others are 66 masks wearing various masks?
"Continuation of the story is the Lion is still wearing the Mask and entertaining the people, he never will the gorilla or other animals and all other animals in masks are continuing to entertain crowd. The ZM was previously the CM, in the mask of a Jackal, well experienced in keeping the masks and ceating people" Nitish said.
"Great!" AK clapped! He said if he knew this answer he knew that answer also. "Just wear the mask of Development and sleep. You will get the answer." AK told him.
Next morning, all were ready for breakfast. Mulayam asked "Are you ready with answers?" Each one told his/her answer. When the chance came for Lalu and Nitish finally, Lalu said he would tell the answer.
After getting clearance he said, "The King was responsible. He was arrogant. He was like Hitler. He never heard any one. He wears of a mask as Development Man. He provoked his courtiers." He chuckled seeing Nitish.
Nitish then replied, "It was the mistake of the magician to have kept his head in the tiger's mouth knowing well it was a 'Jungle Raj'. Then it was a mistake of the courtiers, for still courting the Jungle King".
He chucked seeing Lalu. Mulayam brought a mirror, placed a paper in front of it and asked both leaders to read. Both read. Lalu, the cunning read it as Mulayam and Nisish as MAYALUM.
Mulayam declared that Nitish would be CM face and Lalu would be his Deputy face. So, the decision was taken. Lalu wore the mask of disappointment and said he swallowed poison like Lord Shva.
Satisfied that these two guys never see eye to eye and he can ride both horses and go fast to 7 RCR, Mulayam adjourned.
Later events, we all know. As I was writing this blog there was BREAKING NEWS on Times of India that Congress would support Nitish as CM if Lalu broke up with him. So, something is still brewing in the cauldron, kept hot by coals and dry grass. Yesterday evening I tweeted the possibility of Lalu walking out of the alliance. Is it really happening? Who knows? He might say that, now, his Sambandhi was insulted, he could not walk seven steps with Nitish. He is not young like the new wife of Digvijay too.
With war of words going on in Pariwar camp, with NCP joining SP camp, the boss Mulayam still keeping options open to align with the Left parties, all possibilities are there in the open.
The real question is how can it be other than "MODI ALL THE WAY"?
Now, after reading the blog, Nitish would break his head about who pushed the CFO in the swimming pool and why and who pushed him into the cauldron and are now pushing him into the corner. He tried to call AK. But the call is dropping. AK used call drop problem in his own "inimitable cunning" style. He also was perturbed how Lalu read the name in mirror as MULAYAM. He called him. Call did not drop. He asked Lalu. He said, "He is my Sambandhi. How can I reverse his position." The chicken is coming home to roost for Nitish, now! My tweet just twelve hours back was
ChandraMohan Rao, Vanichandra 2010
"Left parties, SP contesting all seats will spoil the chances of Pariwar in 25 seats. I foresee Lalu sitting in the lap of Sambandhi Party."
Read my TROJAN HORSES. I wrote the first and most dangerous TROJAN HORSE in NITISH camp was himself. Predictions are coming truthful!
