Sabse Pagal Kaun

Disclaimer: The nature of this post has nothing to do with Author's constant exposure to extreme heat in Chennai.

Hello. I've been organizing the 'Sabse Pagal Kaun test' for some years now. And as anyone with an IQ of more than the cube root of pi would have guessed, I was the only participant and the only winner.

Given the changing times when even Budhadeb Bhattacharya is talking of reforms. I have decided to open this contest to private sector and to keep the left happy, a cap of 25% FDP (foreign direct participation) is put.

So here are the nominations for this year ...

1. Sensex - if eccentricity is anywhere close to madness, then Sensex is a big contender. The dip it shows in a day seems like Suraj Badjatya making 'hum aapke hain kaun' today and 'mein prem ki deewani hoon' the next day. And it is not only about crashing down, the ability to recover is equally maddening. I am sure that Sachin Tendulkar and Wayne Rooney would be already taking recovery tips from Sensex.

2. This nomination is sent by Youth for equality. If senility has anything to do with madness, Dear Mr. Arjun singh would win it hands down. Other participants would feel like India playing against England (in soccer not cricket).

3. Cannes - Our only foriegn entry (given the 25% FDP cap). Now I used to think that film festivals are about showcasing offscreen and onscreen talent. This has been amply (dis)proved by Aishwarya Rai and Malika Sherawat being the face of bollywood at Cannes. They can better buy a curvy mannequin and dress it up in a pathetic evening gown to get the same deadwood expression year on year. Come on guys, stop this pagalpan, have you heard of Nasser and Konkona, that’s what Indian cinema is.

4. The final entry is 'You' - Now there are many more exciting things in this world than the number of stars (black holes and quasars included) in Milky Way. Still, you have chosen to read this blog and have reached this far in this post, you know that you deserve a nomination. It mit be your only chance, I have heard that the HRD ministry is contemplating about reservation in this award also.

So here we are, time to vote for the most biased and undemocratic award celebrating meritocracy in madness. Winner will get a chance to meet George Bush (FYI, he has won the lifetime achievement award for a record sixth time)

ps: I know u'll have this urge to vote for yourself and win, pls. don do that, I'll anyways send you an eCertificate of participation. U deserve that, after all you've read this post.

In my mynd: If :) is a smiley ... what do we call :(


  • So you have read the post and decided to vote/comment.

    Remember, pls. dont vote for yourself, this is not a secret ballot.

  • hahahahaha.......hilarious....:))

    Well my vote would certainly go to Mr. Arjun Singh......given his insane stance on reservations followed closely by ME (couldn't resist the temptation.....;)) for going thru the entire post and then crazy enuf to vote/comment.

    ps: waiting for my eCertificate....please send it to

  • Now the term in my mind, nuclear holocaust, may be a complete exaggeration for the solution, and given the fact that u were extremely successful in giving a satirical view to these events, I couldn't stop laughing my ass off but at the same time overcast by the intimidating thought of its future. I'm at rock bottom and still DIGing.

    So as to vote, Mr. Arjun Singh is the sole winner no dispute because I, as an Indian citizen, have a very short term memory and I'm very much influenced by current HOT topics. I, again as a common Indian man, am well preapred to comfortably forget this till next election.

    Finally, I leave it up to you, but you should consider my insanity the worst and declare me as a winner for writing such a long comment even after reading entire post when it was possible to descibe everything I said here in a single line, :D

  • Nuclear Holocaust is a suggested insane solution to the country's insane situation. Don't have any other solution in mind :(
