Samajwadi Party politician Amar Singh has finally managed to touch me deeply with his latest disclosure :
I want to give more time to my wife and my family. Therefore after the last day of polling (on May 13), I will retire from politics.
To quote Monica from Friends, this is like the end of an era ! It is like Batman and Robin (Mulayam Singh and Amar Singh) breaking up. With a heavy heart and tears in my eyes (as I cut onions), I present to you some of the most special moments spanning across his illustrious career :
and a video which proves that Amar Singh is too big for the stage of politics :
To summarize, let’s just say that Amar Singh, just like the Amar from Andaz Apna Apna, India ke liye kabhi bana hi nahi tha (was never made for India). In a country where politicians are known for being corrupt and immoral, Amar Singh was the only politician with a spotless clean image, except for the controversies, corruption charges and criminal cases.
As the saying goes, they don’t make like ‘em any more.
Here’s wishing him luck in all his future endeavours. If I may humbly recommend alternate career choices, he could start his own chain of ATM’s (“Amar Singh’s brain counts cash faster than an ATM”) or be the mascot for Hutch giving that ugly dog some rest.
But we shall bid adieu to him like a war hero. In the shortest words possible,
Mr. Singh, whenever we see an unwanted object in a photograph, whenever we see a random guy posing with filmstars, whenever we see cash in these times of credit, we shall be reminded of you.
