A shaken up Arnab

Times Now editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami did the unthinkable yesterday – he forgot his wedding anniversary and, for a change, found himself at the receiving end of Mrs. Goswami’s ire in a heated exchange that seemed straight out of one of his Newshour debates.

The UnReal Times presents the transcript of this entertaining episode:

Arnab turns the key, and pushes the door open ever so slowly so as to avoid waking up his wife. He lets himself into the hall, switches on the light, turns around and inhales sharply. Mrs. Goswami is sitting at a table with a large television screen behind her.

Wife: Mr. Goswami, thank you for joining us on the show tonight. We hope you can answer the burning question on everyone’s minds today.

Arnab: Er.. honey.. whats up?

Mrs. Goswami presses a button on her remote. The television screen behind her comes to life, displaying a video from what appears to be their wedding function.

Wife: Mr. Goswami, can you see the images playing in the studio? What does this remind you of Mr. Goswami? Because the nation demands an answer, Mr. Goswami.

Arnab (mutters unders his breath): Oh shit, marr gaya (walks to his wife with outstretched arms) Happy Anniversary darling!

Wife (pushes him away): It is 20 hours too late, Mr. Goswami. Why the delay in action, Mr. Goswami? (Turns away from Arnab to look straight ahead) Viewers must know that Times Now was the first to report on this. (turns back to Arnab) Women of this country are counting on husbands like you. What sort of confidence do you give to the women of this country, Mr. Goswami?

Arnab (tries to hug her again): Chhodo na darling. Lets drink some wine to celebrate…

Wife (indignantly): Mr. Goswami, are you trying to avoid my question?

Arnab (defensively): No…no…darling…

Wife (interrupts): What makes you think you can get away with this ghastly act?

Arnab (looks around frantically trying to think of something): I.. I.. I was busy all day today, darling… didn’t have a moment to think, let alone make a phone call.

Wife (continuing in the indignant tone): Is that so, Mr. Goswami? I have with me a paper that gives the exact break up of time for your various activities today. (Waves around a piece of paper triumphantly) And according to this paper you had 4 hours, 37 minutes and 14 seconds of free time in total, Mr. Goswami. You could have called up your wife to wish her during any of these minutes, Mr. Goswami.

Arnab looks at his wife open-mouthed in shock

Wife: And that’s not all. Joining the show is Mr. Ramkishen your driver, and Ms. Mini Chopra, your personal assistant at the studio.

The television screen behind her splits into two panels and the two panelists appear in either one of them. Arnab rubs his eyes in disbelief

Wife: Let me get in Mr. Ramkishen first. Mr. Ramkishen, Mr. Goswami blames his busy schedule for his inability to exercise his duties towards his better half. What do you say to that?

Ramkishen (shakes his head): Mrs. Goswami, I am shocked by Mr. Goswami’s statement. I cannot believe he can plunge to such depths and defend such a blatant dereliction of his domestic duties. I demand the strictest action on him for this misdemeanor.

Arnab (mutters under his breath): Saale Ramkishen, tujhe dekh loonga mein

Mini Chopra raises her hand from the other panel

Wife: Ms. Chopra wants to make a point. Let me get back to your Mr. Ramkishen. Yes, Miss Mini, what is your view?

Mini: Actually, Mr. Goswami isn’t wrong when he says he didn’t have time. (Arnab’s eyes light up in hope) According to his schedule…

Wife (interrupting ferociously): Are you trying to defend his deplorable actions, Ms. Chopra?

Mini (defensively): No, all I am saying is..

Wife (continues in her ferocious tone, as Arnab slumps in resignation): His ghastly actions have caused no end of pain to his family. Are you justifying them?

Mini (defensively): Hear me out.. hear me out..

Wife (interrupts again): I’ll come back to you Mini. Let me quickly get in Ramkishen

Ramkishen (agitated): People like Mini Chopra are the reason why the country is in such a bad condition. Make no mistake, when the year-end appraisal comes up, the people of this country will teach her a lesson…

Wife: Wait…

Mini (interrupts, equally agitated): It is because of drivers like you that, people like Mr. Goswami are not able to…

Wife: Let him speak… let him speak…

The two panelists start fighting with each other, while Mr. and Mrs. Goswami look on helplessly. Arnab walks over to his wife and puts an arm around her.

Arnab (whispers to his wife): Happy Anniversay darling.

Wife (finally relents and smiles): Happy Anniversary to you too.

The two melt in each other’s arms.

Arnab: By the way, do me a favour, will you honey?

Wife: What?

Arnab: Don’t watch my show from now on…

The two switch off the television and walk away, muttering sweet nothings to each other. And all’s well in Arnab Goswami’s household. Time for a commercial break…..

    Nice ! Just wondering if Mrs.Goswami gets the chance to interrupt her husband in mid – comment as he does some of his panelists on the Newshour ? Even better,she can get tutored by Manish Tewari on how not to let Arnab get his say !

      “I can’t laugh at this satire. This guy arnab, I can’t really bear with this guy. The worst news reader, journalist ever seen. Stopped watching times now all thru. Such hatred, very cheap tactics and makes people dumb. Media spoils the country and arnab ll be the first one. Such an arse. To keep people engaged they could do documentaries in Indian history, science, life, spirituality, entrepreneurship, benefits of quitting smoking, not littering, how to behave and all rather than this guyz cheap and second grade shows. I am normally cool and if anyone can piss me off, it’s arnab. He s like a bad omen to me. Can’t stand this guy at all.”

      Best comments ever I thought I was the only one Who hated him what a moron and why does he scream… does he think the viewers are deaf ….he thrives on speculation and sensationalising petty issues what a prick…and why are the owners of times group the Jain brothers tolerating this nuisance … Beats me

    Mr. Arnob,
    i am a regular viewer of Times Now (to you “your channel”).
    How come you forget your marriage to the lady who is outraged as reported in this blog?. Anyway, neither I know you personally or your wife, you seems to have trying score that you are as simple as Anna who is unmarried and the question of Wedding Anniversary does not arise. How come that a person of your calibre who remembers every interview or debate on an issue (while debating in your channel)reminds them on such and such date while debating on another issue, forget his wedding day.
    i hope you will debate the issue with your wife live in your channel as you are quick to bounce on any other petty issues which does not concern general public.
    Mr. Goswami, you should clear the doubt by airing your views in your channel during prime time.
    It is said that the easiest thing in this world is “finding fault with others”. Do you agree? Then debate. Let the truth prevail and the public at large will watch your show as always.
    Please respond.

    Thank God! Arnab has not attributed his ghastly act to the conspiracy of Narendra Modi and BJP leadership.

  • Nanka

    Are the Sardarji jokes waning and this new Arnab jokes catching on!! Love it and I’m sure Arnab has a humour streak too!! He does look good when he smiles as much as when he is ferociously attacking, as he does some of his panelists on the Newshour on our channel!! ;)Three cheers for Arnab!!!

    arnav Goswami should take care of his health.He is a marvellous fellow.A ray of hope in the dismal scenerio of journalism barring ofcourse Ravish kumar of NDTV.But the compulsions of life will definitely force them to compromise with honesty and justice some day soon.
