It's 3:00 a.m., and a plane is about to leave for Kandahar on an important mission

A very manly voice: It's 3:00 a.m., and a plane is about to leave for Kandahar on an important mission.

The Deputy Prime Minister is sleeping: safe, sound and oblivious. Like a child.

And   the   phone   doesn't   ring.

At this Deputy PM's residence, the phone never rings. Even when important things happen.

He always sleeps peacefully. Like a child.

The Iron Man voice: I am L.K. Advani, the Deputy PM that the Prime Minister and the External Affairs Minister -- pals from my own party! -- didn't give a damn about. I approve this message.

On-screen slogan: Vote for someone his own party colleagues don't trust!

    Anon 1 (Sudheer): Thanks.

    Anon 2: Sheesh! Now another anon is going to tell me that I was wrong to imply that the flight for Kandahar took off at around 3 a.m. ...

    It is quite sad that people like you are making fun of our great leader and maha purush, Mr. Advani. He is not someone to shy away from taking responsibility. Remember how he went to the spot when two old people who cant walk (Islamic terrorists) were shot dead in a Delhi garage under his orders? You never wrote gloriously about him on that success but you are criticizing him now. Also, if Vajpayee can get into the house and not participate in the freedom struggle because his grandma shouted at him, why can't Mr. Advani do the same because his wife called him to sleep? You are clearly applying double standards here and as a right wing representative, I strongly criticize your liberal hypocrisy.

    An Italian accent: It's 3am, and the Indian army are going to get new guns.

    All the citizens are sleeping and the phone rings.

    The party president: Thank you Mr Quottarochi. Deal is done.

    On-screen slogan: Vote for someone gets guns for the country, no matter whatever the deal.

    Coming soon ... What an erudite leftist leader does at 3am in Kolkata :P
