In Pictures: What happened in Parliament before Chidambaram began the FY13-14 Union Budget speech


The beginning of the FY13-14 Union Budget speech in Parliament witnessed an utterly bizarre series of events, one which went completely unreported by the news media. Fortunately the events were captured in pictures by none other than The UnReal Times star correspondent Atul Baskarbe, who was present in parliament as a reporter for our sister channel, Joke Sabha TV.

Presenting the dramatic turn of events to you all, in pictures:

    Dr. Swamy takes on TDK. Ashwin, you did really work hard on swamy’s historical entry into the Parliament house disguised as a Sardar.

    Reminds me of an Editorial controversy in Times of India :

    EPIC ! Delightfully brilliant satire! I like the one in which RG says “Is it just me or did i hear a scheme not named after dad?”

  • Giridhar

  • panini10

    Every dialog is punch line.

    “Ponga de dei” – Best ever.

  • Ullu Banati

    Wow Ashwin. Just Wow. Wow Wow Wow.
    You were at the top of your game here. The habit of Meera Kumar was wonderfully used here as well as the disguise SS had taken. I was actually stunned to see Chiddu talking like that to Sonia etc. It really made me feel good. This has to be one of the best of your works.

    Btw, Ashwin, it is time now to have a special series where we get to have a re-dekko at your selected best works. You must have at least 11-12 top class works and may be more. Pls do it one day….in the near future. Pls.

    More than amusing, It just provoked some serious thoughts and made me realize the stark realities of the sad situation prevailing in our country. Why don’t you create a title or a brand and make it a feature periodically bringing out the sordid state of affairs in a lighter vein.
    Rest asuued,your efforts won’t go in vain. It might lead to some much expected revolution.

    By the way talking of the national budgets, has any one ever heard any opposition party ever applauding a budget? Well I have’nt so far!!

    Mr.Modi comment on PM Manmohan Singh ” Empty vessels make more noise”
