Five star hotels in the state of West Bengal were overjoyed and welcomed the recent political developments in the state. Over the past week they saw a steady increase in the number of ‘special meals’ being ordered by the BJP party members in Kolkata. On asked about this recent development, Five Star Hotels association president, Mr. Pronob Ganguly told this ‘real’ news reporter that “five star hotel owners in our state are ‘super happy’ as their business has seen a steady upward trajectory in the past week. We are hoping that this trend will continue with more BJP leaders visiting the state to have our unique cuisine.”

He bragged that we have hired more ‘Brahmin’ cooks to cater to the demand. He said he would like to thank BJP leaders in Delhi and Kolkata for creating economic growth for their industry in these troubled times.

On being asked if he knew that the food was being served in a Dalit household that a senior BJP leader recently visited, Mr. Ganguly said that he welcomed such kind of outreach. “I am not casteist. Obviously, we ‘Brahmins’ make the best food. At least for one course let these ‘Dalits’ enjoy ‘our food.’ We all know that their food is not as good as ours…I haven’t tasted it, but I just know its bad, super bad!”

(Note: This is a work of satire, all of the above is ‘absolutely true’ if we are living in the matrix. If you’ve read me before, you already knew I would add this note, right? )
