My good friend Nikhil — on the lines of the photo montage I posted at Amar Singh’s retirement — pointed out some snaps of Amar Singh that I just cannot ignore. Here you go — another tribute :

With just the right amount of kurta cleavage, I thought this was a fake — but it isn’t. I swear I would have expected an image of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan when Amar Singh does a Hanuman. But as is obvious, he devotion to the Bachchan parivar hasn’t touched greatness.

This was his reaction when told that Auro in Paa was -- in fact -- played by Amitabh Bachchan.

You don't mess with someone who has Amitabh Bachchan as his bodyguard.

If you remember, Amar Singh announced his retirement in May with these words :

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.

I wrote a post bidding cheerful adieu to the great man. Of course, he didn’t retire.

Yesterday, he finally stepped down from the post of Samajwadi Party Gen. Secy. for different reasons :

I have to devote more time towards my responsibilities to my family.

The post of SP Gen. Secy. is never going to be the same. With Amar Singh, the post was often confused as Gen. Sexy. — such was the man’s charisma. Now it will go back to being boring, old Secretary.

In remembrance, I am re-posting my earlier post. Hope you enjoy, Mr. Amar Singh, and go on to live a thousand years .. assuming the Mayans are right.

Samajwadi Party politician Amar Singh has 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 :

Here he is radiating more attitude than the King Khan himself.

In a snap that epitomizes his relationship with the Bachchan parivar

The only snap where Amar Singh is seen without a celebrity.

The only snap in existence where Amar Singh is seen without a celebrity.

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 them like they used to.

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.

Goodbye, friend.

If it weren’t for the elections and our leaders, I would have never known that Holi was the occasion people give out money since “it is part of our tradition” (now that you mention, I vaguely remember this tradition was quite popular during the Ramayana too).

First, Mulayam Singh doled out wads of cash.

In his defense, his Robin promptly pointed out that he was just giving gifts to his extended family. If that is his extended family, I might have a new project for the extinct Pink Condom Campaign.

Then was Govinda (the actor in whose memory Sarkar was made), and in his defense I think they were the last remaining members of his extended audience.

Then was some random politician guy Rajesh Mishra.

So if you are strapped for cash, or need some pocket money or if you are just a connoisseur of Gandhi items, you know whom to contact.

And Mr. Random News Channel person : I am happy for you that you have some start-of-the-art video editing software that can ably highlight a red rectangle which even more coincidentally has the currency notes in it with the centroid of the aforementioned rectangle and the centroid of the perspective projection corrected rupee notes matching perfectly; but we kind of know when we see a rupee note. The economy isn’t that bad yet.

Even more hilarious is the video in this post of the Karnataka Chief Minister falling off his chair. Did you really need to circle the only lame guy falling off the chair on the podium ?

If you have AVG antivirus and/or Zone Alarm installed, get rid of them.

They are pure evil.

I spent the last 18 hours recovering from a crash and figuring out the problem which I would have rather spent very happily watching Himesh Reshammiya act (Karzzzzz review here), hearing Mamta Banerjee sing (Video link @ 3.30), making fraandship with Amar Singh, reading Amitabh Bachchan’s blog, washing Pramod Muthalik’s chaddi, debating with people about MNS, spending Valentine’s day with Barkha Dutt and proving to Pakistan that 2 plus 2 equals 4 with credible evidence.

You get the idea.

Kindly go uninstall them.

Amar Singh has been in the news last week for declaring that he and former BJP leader Kalyan Singh were BFFs (Best Friends Forever), adding to his already long list of friends. But that is not the reason why we are bestowing upon him this honour.

The reason being he donated over $10 million to the Clinton foundation in charity. Well not exactly charity, he also ‘made the fraandship’ with the Clintons. Of course, we should be proud of his charity if not for one minor glitch :

Accusing Amar Singh of having donated more than $10 million (approximately Rs 45.8 crore) to the William J Clinton Foundation run by the former US President, Chaturvedi has pointed out, “In his affidavit dated November 6, 2008, filed before the Election Commission, Amar Singh has disclosed net assets to the tune of Rs 37 crore, so where did he get Rs 48.5 crore from?”

Lately Amar Singh hasn’t been having a great time. Firstly, no one wished him on his ‘happy birthday’, then the Congress took his help during the trust vote and now calling him ‘mad’ and if all this wasn’t enough, the above PIL. So this is a sympathetic Dude of The Week which will hopefully cheer him up.

@Congress : You cannot call Amar Singh mad. It violates the first law of politics. Speaking the truth.

Disclaimer.

Unknown to everyone, the dynamic, static and gigantic leader of Samajwadi Party Mr. Amar Singh celebrated his happy birthday yesterday (for the uninitiated, Amar Singh is also known as that-unwanted-thing-in-every-Bachchan-snap) Now one would expect him to be ecstatic at this momentous occasion, but he has his reasons to be unhappy :

“I have not got any birthday wishes from Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi or any other Congress worker,” Singh rued.

After all he had done for the Congress during the trust vote, the least he expected was wishes from Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and the security guard at the ATM which he visited so frequently. But none of them bothered.

As we all know, Amar Singh is a friend of many of his friends. So this must be heartbreaking for someone who has spent a large part of his life socialising and making friends. He has been a pioneer in the science of friend making. In fact, he is called the father of friends (not to be confused with friends’ father). So when he found that he had befriended almost all Indians, he even took the trouble of visiting Cannes to make more friends :

Last heard, his Facebook friends’ list included Abraham Lincoln, Shaktimaan, Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi and a few unnamed extra terrestrials. He is also miffed that these personalities forgot about his happy birthday.

So I would like to set aside our differences and take this opportunity to wish Mr. Amar Singh by quoting a famous line by Dr. Prem Khurana from an iconic movie :

“Happy Birthday Rabbit !”

I would also like to dedicate this video to our dear friend Amar. Considering that female cheerleaders are against our great culture and tradition, I took the pains of finding a video with pure male cheerleaders :

The fight between the Bahujan Samaj Party and the Samajwadi Party over the birthday of the biggest politician in India, Kumari Mayawati is almost getting embarassing. Here are the events in order of occurence :

BSP decides to call the birth day as Swabhimaan Divas.

After the allegations of murder and extortion, the SP decided to call it Durbhagya Divas.

BSP the decides to denounce the allegations by calling it Dhikkar Divas.

A desperate SP runs out of ideas decides to call it Thu Thu Divas.

Masterstroke I must add. How can you possibly counter a Thu Thu ? Unless of course, Mayawati decides to jail the leaders of SP (spitting is illegal in public places no ?).

A really funny piece I came across :

If Bollywood entered Politics.

While Sunny Deol as defense minister was hilarous and the Prime Minister would obviously beAmitabh Bachchan, the best was the President’s post going to Amar Singh, the reasoning being :

In India, the President is not as much popular as the Prime Minister but is closely associated to him. Amar Singh is doing the same.

On that note, when I saw Amar Singh with the Bachchans on the red carpet at Cannes, I assumed for a long time that the picture was morphed, until I discovered he actually followed them there too !

If ever that ugly Hutch dog dies, I can recommend someone as their mascot.
