Me: You doing Modi a great injustice... he has figures on his finger tips.. eye on the ball... is a fantastic orator...is a visionary.... and his response to Renuka showed his ready wit...why should he need pre- planned Questions...would just ruin the spontaneity...I think you guys think everyone follows RaGa's way.... Amar: Loved his response... rozz 1 to 2 Kgs gaali khaatha hoo... Antony: RaGa faces more brickbats... Amar: If Modi faced RaGa type of brickbats he'd have resigned... no one can call him stupid...Mr. Gaffe... Antony: Prasoon was so much of a Chamcha.. Me: You want to see what a Chamcha Interviewer is ..then see Sardesai interviewing Sonia...keeps calling her a Tigress...and he did this in 2005 and 2016 again .... Amar: And Prasoon's poetry reninditions were about the Nation ...I hope now Modi's Baiters ...Critics.... Abusers.. will understand why he doesn't respond.... he said ...criticism is a byproduct of Democracy... however wild allegations are gross misuse of Democracy...

Modi types have anecdotes that enthrall ...that is why listening to them is so absorbing... Antony: Why RaGa too has anecdotes... like his being in a room with a ex terrorist.. Amar: I sure this would have been like 3rd degree for the ex terrorist... must have thought I've reformed why the 3rd degree now... Akbar: Shifting to Justice Loya's death.... Justice has not been given.. Me: The SC threw the Petition out.. and even rapped the knuckles of the Petitioners for a frivolous motivated petition..
