Atal Bihari Vajkitteh

May 7, 2008

Anybody remember how in the 2004 general elections, the Congress put character attack on Atal Bihari Vajpayee by spreading rumours that he ate beef using the immortal slogan ‘गाय हमारी माता है, अटल बिहारी खाता है’?

I realised only today how easily that slogan lends itself to LOLspeak.  It becomes ‘Atal Bihari had a mother… but he eated it.’
