Trring Trrring….

I: Hello!

Voice: Hello Raju! Old boy, how are you doing?

I: Very well! Thank you and you?

Voice: I am always well. BTW, do you recognise me?

I: hm.. I am sorry, I cannot

Voice: Shiva from Kailash

I: Shiva from Kailash? Hmm… I don’t anybody by that name from that place.

Shiva: haha! You only know the Shiva of Immortals of Meluha by Amish, Isn’t it?

I: I do like that Shiva. Are you that Shiva? I especially like the way you dance, fight and the chillum you smoke. I very much like the way you do things.

Shiva: there you are, accepting that you are my follower.

I: didn’t say that. But why did you call me? I am not even your bhakt.

Shiva: sometimes I like to speak to anti-bhakt too and do ‘Monkey Baat’, so that I can become a better god.

I: talking of bhakts, you must be feeling very lonely now that the Amarnath yatra was suddenly canceled?

Shiva: you hit the nail my boy! The avatar as you know is half human and half god. It is the half human in him that makes him do all such monkey matters. What can I do? I was party to sending him to Bharata.

I: I thought we human are frustrated with Avatar. Et tu Shiva?

Shiva: hm.. in a way I can meditate in the cave peacefully. What else is news?

I: your stock has gone down. People only chant Jai Shri Ram.

Shiva: even I do. We gods take turn in hitting the top of the popularity chart.

I: but this Seetharaman is economizing on her efforts and the economy is in doldrums.

Shiva: you also join and do some Dhol bajao, hahaha!

I: BTW, I am enjoying this conversation, but who are you really?

Shiva: you still doubt my credentials and I don’t have any Aadhar.

I: can’t help it Shiva. These days there is too much of fake news going on in media. Can’t decide who and what to believe.

Shiva: what about RTI? Don’t you know get factual information.

I: even that has been modified and now it is only to right to information gag, RIG as I call it.

Shiva: haha! I heard Bharat Ratna has been conferred on Pranab da.

I: yes indeed! Any politician with Mukherjee surname is eligible for some award.

Shiva: Keep up with your humor. You need it in good measure these days. I need to check if the followers of the other god are up to some mischief in these parts, with some articles like 370 gone missing permanently now. Bye for now. Jai Shri Ram.

I: Jai Shri Ram!! Really, Jai Jai Shankar
