Opinion poll pe opinion poll

8 Nov

Hi… my Indian friends would have already known what I am gonna talk about. But for the friends in abroad, I would have to give the background…

The Election season has dawned in India. Elections would be held in 5 states of India within the remaining two months of this year. Obviously, you can imagine, the situations and I would call them chaos, that have rapidly taken over the whole country in its ambit. Be it Sachin’s 199th match or the ambitious moon Mission…, everything fades away when a news channel starts a debate on political issues.

Nowadays, we see, every channel conduction opinion polls. Its basically a method of knowing the mood of people residing in a particular constituency about their representative and his contestant. But, one political party’s  spokesperson, created waves by commenting that opinion polls are just a way to mould public opinion and its should be banned. Now, the opposition doesn’t seem to be satisfied with this and replied that since this time opinion polls are against his party, he want to get them banned. And the chaos started. But amidst all this, news channels have  got a new issue to blabber about and get high TRPs with this.

A news channel conducted an opinion poll in my locality on whether opinion polls should be conducted or banned. So, this conversation:

Reporter: “Welcome, to News with Wine, I am AXI, your favorite reporter, live from Ujdaganj, conducting a live poll on whether opinion polls should  be banned.” He went up to a 60 year old man and asked the same question

60 year old: “I remember in 1975 when Indira Government was in power and emergency was imposed, I also went to jail but nothing was done in that regard. I lost my one finger in the 1984 riots, but one cares…

Reporter: “Sir, the question is something else…”

60year old: “Sorry, you were saying something??”

Reporter:(never mind) “Okkay… moving on to our youth.. let’s ask this young gentleman, about what he thinks about this issue..

Young man: “Sir, my name is A, and I am 23 years old and I work in Tata Motors as the junior engineer. I have a family of four, and I am unmarried and I…”

reporter: “Sir, do you realise that this is not a marriage match- making show?? Well, moving on to the ladies, I mean naari shakti, what does she has to say about this??”

Lady: “Arre bhaisahab… what to tell you?? Onions are Rs. 80 per kg and tomatoes are touching 100. Tell me what should I do??”

Reporter( Pickle is a good option): “Madam, what do you think about opinion polls??”

lady: “Ehh… what’s that??”

Reporter: “So, moving on to another youth…( Iski lagta hai shaadi ho chuki hai) Sir, tell us what you think about this…”

Youth: “Aag laga dunga… this is a clear attack on our democracy… aag laga dunga…” He held the mike very firmly in his hands so that reporter doesn’t take it away… “I am telling everybody is a dacoit, trying to fill their pockets… arre itna kama ke upar leke jaenge kya… huh… aag laga dunga… ”

Reporter had to snatch the mike from him and he thought( Iski pakka shaadi ho chuki hai )

Reporter than came up to me…

Reporter: So, here is a young lady, who seems to quietly hear all the conversations, madam what do you have to say…

Me:(eeeiii… me on television ….live..??) “Sir, I would just say that it’s wrong…”

Reporter: “Why do you think so…”

Me: (Abbe viva lega kya ab) “Because it’s just against natural justice…by the way… I would like to tell you that I am a writer and I have a very cool blog called Creati…”

He didn’t let me complete it… and took the mike away ( he surely sensed what I was trying to do)

Reporter: “So, here we come to the end of this poll, because of paucity of time( shukar hai kahtan hua) and I would like to thank the wise public of Ujadganj($%^#@) for their precious time and comments. We will follow on this story tomorrow, with a different set of people at a different place… till then keep watching our shows only on “News with Wine’…”

I hope Santa uses this method to buy gifts for us... :)

        Reporter: So bhaisaahab… What do you think about the meticulous opinion poll on opinion poll conducted by the one and only single HSI girl on her awesome blog?

        Me: (with a research paper in hand…) Oh I loved it… How aware were the people interviewed… On the contrary look at us… Zindagi jhand hai, phir bhi uske ghamand hai… Ab kharaa kharaa muh kya dekh raha hai… Dikh nai raha exam hai… upar se saare professors ko exam time mein hi sabhi test yaad aate hain… Kal ek assignment submit karna hai… Kaun karega… Tu?… Ab ja…

        Oye ruk… jaakar un budhau scientiston se poochhna… unke likhe articles unhe khud ko bhi samajh mein aate hain?… Aur upar se humein bolte hain paper present karein… Ab bhi khara hai?… Abey ja na…

        Oye… jaate jaate yeh bhi sunte ja… Abey ruk… ja kahan raha hai… ruk…

        Hey bhagwaan ladke… tune to comment me aadha post likh diya… waise the dialogue is “zindagi jhandba, fir bhi ghamandba..” 😛 aur main to reporter se khush ho gayi yaar sachha reporter hai mujhe HSI kehne ke liye bahut guts ki zarurat hai… 😉

      • Arindam Saha November 10, 2013 at 9:58 pm #

        Dekh… bahut chhota comment likha hai… warna main to batoliyan marne mein expert hoon… 😛

        Aur isme guts ki baat kahan se aa gayi? Ti nahin hai kya HSI? 😉

      • harshdamangal7 November 11, 2013 at 6:19 pm #

        and your blog says when “introvert” speaks… Aur yaar har koi apni nazar me HSI hota hi hai… iske matlab ye to nahi ki duniya waale bhi jhooth ka saath dein… 😛

      • Arindam Saha November 11, 2013 at 8:17 pm #

        Haan… The blog says “When Introvert Speaks”… Waise to main bolta nahin hoon, but jab bolta hoon to… ek blog ban jaata hai 😉

        Har koi apne nazar mein HSI nahin hota… jaise main… Kisi bhi angle se HSI nahin hoon… Mariyal sa chehra lekar to paida hua hoon… 😛

      • harshdamangal7 November 12, 2013 at 6:12 pm #

        HSI ka matlab tu dhang se samjha nahi… H matlab hot… Hot hone ka chehre se kya lena dena?? S for sexy, sexypana attitude aur confidence se ata hai aur I for intelligence… aur intelligence ka to shakal se waise hi koi naata nahi hai…

      • Arindam Saha November 13, 2013 at 7:05 am #

        Hotness aur sexiness chehre se nai aataa hai? OK… theek hai… new info… 🙂

      • harshdamangal7 November 13, 2013 at 5:51 pm #

        matlab wo to sabka apna nazariya hai… mere hisab se chehre se nahi aati…

      • Arindam Saha November 13, 2013 at 7:55 pm #

    hilarious. america too is the capitol of polling the most ridiculous things by and of people who are neither informed enough or interested enough to offer a meaningful opinion. one day, the end will come as the world goes up in the smoke of a nuclear holocaust. and the last words heard will be a pollster asking whether the nuclear even was a positive thing or not for humanity.

    • harshdamangal7 November 9, 2013 at 5:21 pm #

      I didn’t knew about that… Although i am very impressed by the way elections are conducted there… they seem to be more transparent and democratic than we have here, in the largest democracy of the world… but the possibility of pollster capturing the moments of holocaust is highly probable 🙂

      • rjl2727 November 9, 2013 at 6:50 pm #

        they are probably too transparent, and the campaigns always turn very nasty. each candidate promises to run a “clean campaign”, but they always devolve to character assassination.

        Hmm.. every system has its own sets of merits and demerits.. 🙂

  5. Harsha November 8, 2013 at 10:38 pm #

  6. Dilip November 9, 2013 at 7:44 pm #

    What if there are no opinion polls like the ‘before days’? 🙂

    • harshdamangal7 November 10, 2013 at 3:00 pm #

      The thing is not that there should not be such polls at all, But i think there should be a reasonable limit to everything…
