Lucknow. 16 June 2009.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister (Behen Kumari) Mayawati today woke up as a Marble-mixed-P.O.P. statue at her Golf Club Road bungalow. Doctors and State Parks and Statues Minister Santram Srivastava were immediately rushed to the site of Mayawati’s now-statued posture. Initial reports suggest that Mayawati’s stiffened posture resembles Britney Spears’ famous ‘Gimme More’ pose with one hand on an imaginary microphone and another on her pelvis. Though some other reports are suggesting a more nuanced and sophisticated Gabbar Singh pose from Sholay, as if asking ‘Kitne statue they?’
Incidentally, her last words the night before her marblization were – “Enough with my statues! I don’t want to look self-important anymore. Let’s build a 200-ft statue of my leather bag.” Dr. Sudhir Verma, Sr. Psychiatrist at city’s Dr. Shyamaprasad Mukherjee Municipal Hospital pointed that “obsession turning into reality can’t be denied. Though she may be acting as a ‘naatakbaaz’ here to get more attention.”
Meanwhile, State Marble and Plaster of Paris Supplies Minister Ashok Kumar has checked and confirmed that the “quality of material in Behenji’s new avatar is good enough to be installed as a statue in the state capital. If only Behenji could speak up and tell, where to install!”
