New Delhi. 12 May 2009.
Villagers of Shahpur Baadli in Delhi’s adjacent Okhla District are still in a shock as a lady gave birth to a miracle baby, termed aptly as ‘Polu’ by the local media. Reports suggest that the newborn can be called India’s youngest poll-pundit as the baby has been muttering ‘hung…hung…hung’ unstoppably since her birth two days ago. Baby ‘Polu’ has also given other indications as to what could be in store for the bigger parties by peeing on her ‘hand’ and biting the ‘lotus’ when presented to her.
Polu’s father Banwaari, a Congress supporter himself (mainly because he finds Priyanka’s fashion sense good), said that he suspected something strange pretty early as the kid bawled badly at seeing the picture of Sonia Gandhi but smiled beatifically on being shown Jaya Prada and Amar Singh’s poster. TV Psephologists and Astrologers, led by Bejan Daruwala and Yogendra Yadav, have dismissed the whole incident as a sabotage-bid by the villagers adding – “That’s ridiculous! Poll-prediction is data based, highly sophisticated, statistical, and divine exercise. We have the data, and our prediction is Hung Parliament. Who is that kid?”
Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi cleared the decks for more post-poll alliances and didn’t rule out a “look at Balochistan National Congress for a secular government soon.” Rubbishing media claims that INC is falling short of allies, Rahul Gandhi emphasized “the need for an open mind post-polls.” “Balochsitan is not far-off, and they are Congress anyways!”, he concluded.
