With one more leg remaining in the Indian elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi can have a go at prefixing his name with a new honorific.
As the scientist in him has emerged in no uncertain terms, with nothing to cloud his halo, the “chowkidar” tag has ceased to be meaningful, with a fighter twist.
“Chowkidar Modi” can now rightfully rebrand himself “Scientist Modi”. His devotees can then faithfully have it prefixed against their names and crash all social media platforms.
Given Mr Modi’s (as well as of all Bhakti) fanatical obsession with Hindi, “Vaigyanik Modi” will perhaps be a better fit.
Hare bhabha! No, I am not referring to Homi Bhabha, let him continue to Rest in Peace, so Mr Modi can have all scientific controls.
