Diwali Dhamaka! What if Rahul, Modi and Yogi were firecrackers?



Renin Wilben wonders what if our fiery politicians were actually firecrackers, and the results are rather en‘light’ening

So, Diwali 2018 has finally arrived. It’s time to bring out those firecrackers again. Well, we thought of giving this festival of lights a little quirky twist – wondering what it would be like some if our renowned politicians were firecrackers. Letting our imagination run wild, this is what we came up with.

Lavangi being lit on Diwali

Narendra Modi (Long lavangi ladi): The Indian Prime Minister just doesn’t like to stop talking. He just goes on and on and on, like a lavangi ladi!

Gol Chakri

Rahul Gandhi (Gol Chakri): The Gandhi scion has a habit of getting repetitive. He goes round and round saying the same thing, again and again.

Amit Shah

Amit Shah (Sound cracker): The BJP president likes to keep it loud. Sometimes we wonder why he even needs a mike at a rally. He could definitely be any loud sound cracker.

Shashi Tharoor

Shashi Tharoor (Rocket): Once lit, it just disappears from sight, leaving you bamboozled. Similarly, with Tharoor, you really need special talent to understand his Floccinaucinihilipilificatio-like vocabulary.

Yogi Adityanath

Yogi Adityanath (Colour changing butterfly): It’s no secret that the UP CM loves change. We’re sure the colour changing butterfly will be his favourite.

Sparklers or phuljhadi

LK Advani (Phuljhadi): The humble firecracker hardly makes any noise, but Diwali is incomplete without it. In BJP, Advani is synonymous with the phuljhadi.

Anar or flower put being lit during Diwali

Arvind Kejriwal (Flower pot or Anar): Sometimes reaching dizzy heights, and at other times crashing to ground zero, you never quite know where AK’s political career is heading.

Subramaniam Swamy (Parachute): The loud-mouthed politico likes placing himself on a high pedestal, and is never quite far away from bursting out. Next time you light a parachute, you might remember him!
