You’ve seen the sarkari ones, but have you heard the super spoofs yet? Fever 104FM is making tableaus take a funny turn while you get to guess and win big

We’ve grown up watching them and perhaps still sit glued to the TV every year for a glimpse, but there’s no dying down of the excitement
around tableaus, or jhankis, at the Republic Day Parade every year. This year, in addition to the official ones that walk Rajpath during the annual ceremony, there’s also another set of jhankis to look out for — the Fever 104FM audio jhankis.
In a fun twist and as a quirky initiative themed around January 26, the team at the radio station has a ‘jhanki quiz’ playing on air. Called ‘Fever ki jhaanki’, the special series has sonic tableaus of the country’s famous and infamous personalities who’ve been in news for all the right or the wrong reasons this year. The cues, irreverent and ambient in the sound of claps and background bands and running commentary, will make you laugh and roll, and ring a bell. And, win big prizes too, if you can guess the personality right, by texting your answer to 54242.
“We are generating content that is in the flavour of Republic Day, yet entertaining and over the edge. This is an innovation that we have done for the 2nd time and are seeing a huge response from the listeners. The idea is to engage our listeners to programming that has never been done before,” says RJ Suhas. htc
hot bod jhanki
“Ahha dekhiye agli jhanki hamaare saamne 12 saal ke baad ... Kumbh mele ka adbhutt nazara hamari aankhon ke saamne … Wahh wahh yahaan sadhu hein ... naga baba hain ... pandit hein ... aur… ye kya, yahaan voh bhi hain jinka video aapke phone mein hai. Yeh wahi hain jinhone hamaari cricket team ko jeetne ki sabse badi prerna di thi ... apne kapdo ka daan dekar... Lekin main soch rahi thi, agar yeh Ganga mein nahayengi.. toh Ganga apne paap dhone kahaan jaayengi?”
“Kamaal ki jhanki ... jhalkaate hue ... size zero jhanki hai ... Aur dekhiye chamchamaate hue black and white tattoo door se hi dekhe jaa sakte hein... Aur jhanki ki mazbooti ka aap issi baat se andaza laga sakte hain ki jhanki Fevicol se chipkayi gayi hai. Darshak bhi dhol ki dhamak ke saath naach rahi hai ... aur dekhiye nawaab ki second hand jawaani ka jashn beta mana raha hai ... jhanki ke aage aage jhoomta naachta hua.”
