Guruji, will the Samajwadi Party manage without Amar Singh?
Vats, didn’t you hear me predict that Amarji would break away from Mulayam Singh Yadav’s party and go on to do great things?
Yes, Guruji. But the SP...?
Why are you so worried? As the good lord says, it’s not Mulayamwadi but Samajwadi.
Was that Krishna speaking to Arjun in the Gita?
No silly. That’s Amar Singh speaking to the media after stepping down as General Secretary of the SP some weeks ago.
So that's how you knew he was going to leave Mulayamji?
No, no. I figured that out from Amarji’s horoscope. You see, he was born on January 27, 1956, which makes him a...
...a great tactician.
So leaving the SP is a smart move?
Let me just say this, vats: ‘To know when to leave a party is a gift as precious as to know when to join a party.’
Is that from the Bhagvad Gita?
No. It’s from Dale Carnegie’s How To Win Friends and Influence People.
Do say: Amar will be back.
Don’t say: What about Akbar and Anthony?
