After a spate of reforms including the subsidy cuts, and FDI in retail, the government is looking at newer ways to garner attention, in their quest to stay in a positive light for a change. In a bid to further galvanize the government’s image makeover, and to ascertain that the turbaned head at the top is indeed cool, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has decided from now onwards to call himself Man-µ (Greek symbol pronounced ‘mew’).
“What’s up dawg!” greeted the PM, flashing his dazzling bling bling, and making weird shapes with his fingers. “Man, last week been crazy. Diesel, FDI, no Didi, cabinet reshuffle, I am on a roll b****! What I still miss though, is the connect with the youth; who idolize actors, rappers and rockstars instead, you know what I am saying. With this revamp, I can get them in my fold too, braw!” said the PM in a fake British accent, for which he has been taking classes from Archana Vijaya, the IPL anchor.
Hawa Hawai, brand manager for the new name threw in his bit, to justify its aesthetics. “Initially, we wanted to go with Man-Mo, but it didn’t sound cool enough. Apart from the spunk Man-µ has, it would also bring a lot of free word-of-mouth advertising from drunk Manchester United fans, who while chanting Man-U, might slur to make it sound like Man-µ instead. With the EPL around, the PM will be a hit in days,” he aired his views.
The celebrity quarter also expressed their views on the issue, with Karan Johar, aka K.Jo, coming out in the PM’s support. “That sounds really cool yaa, extremely happy for him. Muuuuuuuuuuuah! You see, that poor thing never had a voice, but he will at least have a mew now. Hehe!” chirped the excited exciting director.
Digvijay Singh was all praise for the new move made by the prime minister. “This should settle any doubts about the PM’s image of a pushover. Now, he clearly looks like a man on a mew-sion”, mused the Congress leader, before adding, “The media has already made a star out of me by referring to me as Diggy on multiple occassions, it’s high time, Man-µ ji also gets the same honour”
However, maintaining her stand of going against anything the government does, Didi, who has vowed to live like a tigress, clawed at the PM’s pseudonym.“Mew! What is the PM trying to prove with this? This only confirms that he’s a pussy hiding behind the high command” roared Didi, before calling Derek O’ Brien to consult on how she could give her image a tweak.
