V Gangadhar gives a sneak peek into a high level meeting that happened recently. Spotlight was on football and volcanoes
Having discovered the closely-guarded national secret behind tiny Iceland’s expertise in football, which at the time of writing enabled it to teach the quarter-final in the ongoing soccer world cup, India is on the way to work and implement this secret which would enable it to perform spectacularly in football in the days to come.
After covering nearly more than half the world and meeting with international leaders of repute Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his core secret team has discovered the important secret behind tiny Iceland’s success in reaching the Q/Fs of the ongoing soccer world cup defeating more well-known nations like England and so on
It was a football match which defied logic and rationality. By far the smallest nation in the tournament defied and mighty England which can boast of the time-honoured English League, Wembly stadium, FA Cup and so on. England belongs of the mighty NATO, Iceland cannot even spell it. But in favour of Iceland it should be mentioned despite its size it had the largest number of volcanoes, many of them still ‘live. England did not even have a single volcano. How could it oppose and win against Iceland where Volcanoes abounded. It was an unequal battle. There could only one winner, Iceland!
After is 87th foreign trip in 2½ years, these facts were placed before Narendra Modi who was not pleased.

Meetings were held in both holy and unholy avenues. The history of Indian soccer was analysed thoroughly as well the reasons for the absence of volcanoes. A high power delegation was headed by Narendra Modi was chosen to explore the links between the volcanoes and international football. The leaders headed by Modi unanimously decided that the major thinking and planning work should be left to high and mighty priests, leaders of the groups like the VHP, RSS and their allies. International support from NRI’s should be sought from powerful groups which had befriended NaMO. Gujarati and Akali businessmen should take an active part in this venture.
There was some controversy over the role of Dr Subramaniam Swamy who wanted to head the project because he held a doctorate in Science and dabbled in the subject of waking up sleepy, dormant volcanoes. Boasting of this experience, Swamy demanded to head this committee but was outvoted by a large margin. He continued to fight and finally made the convenor of the propaganda cell which would keep out Arun Jaitley and other financial whiz kids. This created some friction and Modi had to use his negotiating skills to make Swamy fall in.
The hush-hush project is now in full swing and operates at two levels – crating volcanoes and creating magic football on the lined adopted by the Brazilians of the 1960. After much persuasion from the religious ‘mutts’ five regional temples will be built for the god of
