He's back. No, not Sourav Ganguly.
Dear old Raj Thackeray.
CNN-IBN reports that MNS chief Raj Thackeray cut his birthday cake on June the 14th of this year with the word "Bhaiya" written on it. A MMS clip of the same has been leaked. One of their party functionaries moved to lessen the hype over the clip with this mind-boggling comment:-
“We have a lot of north Indian activists in the MNS and it must have been brought by one such activist, but we cannot recollect who,” Party Vice-President Vageesh Saraswat said.
Wow, I never knew there were north Indian "activists" in the MNS fighting against north Indians in the state and the country. And to think their activism and moral duty is to beat up other north Indians, indulge in violence and encourage regional separatism.
Ah! Public figures are responding.
Shatrughan Sinha - Why are the other celebrities keeping quiet? Why are they not speaking up against this atrocious act?
Lal Krishna Advani - If the BJP comes to power in Maharashtra, we will make sure that no birthday cakes are ever cut as they are symbolic of Western influence on young Indians. However, we will allow saffron-coloured and orange-flavoured cakes as we know how much young Indians love and cherish the BJP.
Lalu Prasad Yadav - Nitishji, Paswanji come up on the dias. Media waale, jaraa dur khade rahe pleej.
Nitish Kumar - Laluji, haath dijiye.
Ram Vilas Paswan - Wait CM sahab, main bhi aa raha hoon. Pehle paan to kha loon.
The Holy Trinity of Bihar - We condemn this act and urge the central government to take strict action against the birthday celebrations. An inquiry needs to be ordered into whether the spelling of "Bhaiya" was correct and along which angles he cut the cake. Of our earlier promise, we will try to ensure we resign from Parliament well before our term expires, but first we need a response from the government.
Abhishek Bachchan - Birthday cake? What birthday. Shut up and go watch Drona...err...Dostana.
Mayawati - If this is the kind of respect he is giving to my fellow compatriots, I order a judicial inquiry as to why he didn't have another birthday cake with the words Behenji written on it. I'm sure he has done that too. I can't wait to get my hands on him when I become the PM.
Mukesh Ambani - I'm the richest Indian in the world. Woohoo!
England cricket team - We don't think we will be in any sort of condition to celebrate our birthdays like Raj Thackeray if India whips us 7-0.
