Sunday Levity: Geopolitics of The Boss

If only Rajnikanth would be president

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

Sivaji - The President

GreatBong took the post our of this blogger’s mouth. Although some INI bloggers have revealed a surprising lack of appreciation—not to speak of refined taste—on this matter recently, a President Rajnikanth is likely to transform geopolitics and Indian foreign policy.

But things will be different if Rajinikanth becomes the president. People will start caring. To put it mildly. There will be mini-riots in Malaysia when the President of India comes visiting. People will throw confetti and popcorn when he comes to inaugurate a government building. They will fly down from Australia to hear him address the nation on TV. When President Mush tries to browbeat him, he will flip his glasses around, raise his finger and wag it in the General’s face.

Then when he rejects Afzal’s mercy petition and even after that the Arundhati Roys come to ask him to “reconsider” , he will thunder:

Naan oru dharavai sonna nooru dharavai sonna maadhiri. (If I say it once, it’s akin to having said it a hundred times.)

Just imagine the great Roy’s face after that.

Our neighbourhood friends, who waste no opportunity to try to harm us, will know that the commander of our armed forces is no wuss.

Chittoor Thaandina Kaatpaadi, Sivajiya cheendinaa Dead Body!” (If you cross Chittoor you will reach Kaatpaadi, If you tease Sivaji Rao Gaekwad you will become a dead body!)

And that no matter how much they gang up against us, they should remember:

Kanna panninga dhaan kootama varum, singam single-a dhaan varum (Pigs come in a gang, only the lion (India) walks alone.) [GreatBong]
