@PMOIndia

So…did you read the news about that 19 year old kid from Lucknow who was searching for a better twitter handle and he accidentally got @PMOIndia?  Apparently this handle was “available” when the old PMO folks reset their handle from @PMOIndia to @PMOIndiaArchive.  After a while, the people at twitter corrected this by taking away @PMOIndia from the kid and gave him back his old handle.
 
The kid’s name is Qaiser Ali and he seems to be a good kid.  His parents told him to apologize, which he did.  But then again, there is no need for him to apologize.  What did he really do that required an apology?
 
Qaiser Ali was the proud owner of @PMOIndia for 30 minutes.  In those 30 minutes, he didn’t really do anything wrong.  Now what could he have done wrong if he wanted to be “funny” or “scandalous” – PLENTY!  30 minutes is a long time to do some damage – if he wanted to do so.  Here is my imagination.  (This is a tongue in cheek post attempting to be humorous.)
 
Barrack Obama’s Indian Visa has been cancelled. #Payback!
 
Cricket is now our national bug. #BestInTheWorld
 
Our navy is on the way to Sri Lanka for a naval blockade. #NoMatchForUs
 
Sonia and Rahul Gandhi have been declared persona non grata. #GoodbyeNehruFamily
 
The Prime Minister’s term limit is 2 terms. #NothingisForever
 
All other elected official’s term limit is 3 terms. #Generous
 
Petrol price has been reduced to Re.1 per liter. #Fillerup
 
I am repealing everything that was done in the past 10 years. #BecauseICan
 
I just put an end to the entire caste system. #CastIs4BrokenBones
 
All corrupt and incompetent babus will be fired immediately. #WayTooMany
 
Will build a Ram Temple on the Chinese border in Arunachal Pradesh.
#TakeThatChina #PakGetReadyYoureNext
 
Reduced the minimum age for “youth wing” of any political party from 70 to 65.
#OldandSenile
 
All rapists will be first shot dead and then they will be asked why they did it.
#ImmediateJustice
 
(Yikes! 29 minutes and 30 seconds have gone by.  Only 30 seconds left for one last tweet.)
 
Just ordered that Robert Vadra always gets strip searched at every airport.

  1. You really are on a roll with this post SG!! Petrol price would have figured on my list too... Repealing #BecauseICan had me in splits :D How about no income tax for salaried class henceforth #Cashback#YouSlogYouHog :P

  2. SG!!! That was indeed tongue in cheek :) Loved the post! And yes the boy did no wrong to apologize.
    Here are some tweets I can think of:

    MMS is having a vocal chord transplant. They had preserved Hitler's vocal chord for him #HailHitler #Imaginationgonewild #MuteMMS

    We are trading more mallus for oil from the UAE #KeralaCapitalUAE #braindraininIndia

    o.k. I wanted to stop here :| but I have been watching too much of 'times now' lately, so one last point:

    We replaced Arnab Goswami's vocal chord with that of MMS's as his epiglottis stopped functioning due to rudeness #verdictofpeopleofindia # publicinterest

  5. Didnt know about Qaiser's 30 minutes of fame. Pretty interesting list. I am all for #ImmediateJustice and #Fillerup. Hope this comes true!

  6. I seem to look at it differently.
    PMO must apologise.Why were they not keen to hand it over to in coming PM?Was there anything to hide?
    Qaiser may not have harmed us,but,look at the disaster in real terms he could have created.
    PMO must clarify

  8. If this happened in Brazil would be terrible. I think the boy doens't have a lot to apologize. He could have done many bad things, and he didn't. Many people wouldn't have done that ..

  15. Thanks for your comments Mr. Chowla. I agree with you. Man Mohan's PMO should apologize. Suppose that kid had published something, the stock market would have gone bonkers.

  19. There is nothing I want to add, because there is nothing that you left.

    If you are on Twitter, SG, please share your handle. I will love to follow you. I can only imagine what you can do with 140 characters.

  21. Thanks for your comments and complements Karunesh. I am on Twitter (SG716SG). But, unfortunately, I rarely log in to Twitter. You may say “never”. I really complement people who have a regular job and at the same time active in Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Blog and other stuff. I am unable to do that. Even the posts I am writing is due to pressure put on me by 2 individuals. Insignia (a fellow blogger and my technical advisor) and “Who posted this?” a guy who is not afraid to tell what he thinks through his comments.

  24. 'Just ordered that Robert Vadra always gets strip searched at every airport.' this one and 'reducing the youth wing age limit' are the best!
