MantriAfter Karni sena heroically protected the honour of Rani Padmavati, I have decided that I too want to be a saviour of the Rajput honour.

ChamchaBut mantriji that Bhansali guy has already left. Will you now send your men to Mumbai to teach him a lesson? You know we can’t afford flight tickets and it takes 24 hours by train?

MantriThough he certainly deserves more slaps for dishonouring the reverent queen invented by a Sufi poet that she is now actual history for us. But I don’t have time or money for filmy nonsense.

I want to do something historic in the field of education, something untouched by us!

Chamcha(Excitedly) Yes, yes we need it badly. It will change so many lives. Mantriji you are great. But since there is so much to do, where should we start from?

MantriStart with those things with plenty of pages!

Chamcha- Books?

Mantri- Yes those only, books!

ChamchaSure mantriji, whatever you say. But what in particular?

Mantri(In deep thought) hmm… Maharana Pratap, yes! The Rajput hero! Rajputs love him for never bowing his head to the Mughal rule. But unfortunately history books say he lost against Akbar. Let’s make him win the battle against that Akbar!

(Proudly) We’ll change the books so that people respect Rajputs more and our vote bank even more!

Chamcha(Now looking flustered) but didn’t Akbar win the Battle of Haldighati?

MantriOh! Is that what the battle is called? Huh, never mind. We’ll see. Don’t you know what that angerz said- the pen is mightier than sword. (Smiling) Once we write it in school history books it is same as if Pratap won the battle with his own Rajput sword. 

Moreover, the janta will realize that I am the Rajput saviour. 

ChamchaNice one mantriji! Can’t wait for you to get elected.

The golden rule of politics is that if you cannot claim glory for a present achievement then you recall the long lost past or recreate it perhaps. It’s nothing new to us, the befooled citizens. It was last year only when while the city flooded and traffic erupted like a molten lava, the government decided to rename the city to Gurugram, to pay respect to the Hindu epics.

If they can do that, we can make Pratap win the battle too. In fact, it was Pratap only who won us both the World Wars.
