Someone says “Tape” and “Fire” at Arvind Kejriwal’s press conference, and his entire cabinet watching him on TV, faints!
“When every other logic fails, dizzy logic comes to the rescue!”
Thanks to our dizzy logic reporter who saved the day by solving the mystery as to why all of Kejriwal’s minister fainted watching him on TV, during a press conference. They ended up at various hospitals in Delhi and were promptly refused admission, not aware that they were ministers. In fact the health minister was told at a premier private hospital that there weren’t enough beds, and when he shouted that “I am the Health minister!” he was referred to a different branch of the same hospital which deals with psychiatry. Another minister who wanted a room for himself at the hospital was instead asked to spray some disinfectant at his home, to prevent dengue.
Well this story isn’t about the health of the hospitals in Delhi, but about what caused all of Kejriwal’s ministers to get sick, seeing him in a press conference on TV.
Now a small intro on Dizzy Logic!
There is logic and then there is intuitionistic logic and then there is propositional, predicate, modal, temporal, moral logic (Yes I got it, I will directly jump to the point!).
A couple of days back, the chief-minister of Delhi Mr. Kejriwal was holding a press conference at the press club, and suddenly one by one, every one of his ministers who were watching him on TV in their respective residences, called in sick, with some even turning at hospitals. We carefully analyzed the tape of Kejriwal’s press conference and using our dizzy logic, found out that someone said “fire”, near a live TV microphone and it was promptly broadcast on all the channels. Upon enquiry it was found that there were no incidents of “fire” reported at the press conference. We called the fire department and even they confirmed the same.
Then we came to know that, there were a couple of unidentified folks at the press conference, sitting on a chair near the microphones and the recording equipment. They apparently were feeling bored in Kejriwal’s press conference with no drama unlike the one in which he fired his food and civil supplies minister Asim Ahmed Khan. So they were discussing amongst themselves their favorite “Oomph” movies and one of them said it was Deepa Mehta’s “Fire”. Accidentally the tape which they had put on the mike to prevent their conversation from being heard in the live recording came off at that exact instant. Hence the word “Fire” was heard, followed by “Tape” as the other fella pointed at the tape, which came off from the microphone. They instantly un-plugged the mikes. But alas, the words “tape” and “mike”, which were heard on Live TV, were enough to cause a flurry amongst Kejriwal’s ministers and they all fainted, hearing this on the TV.
And thus dizzy logic solves this mystery, which has been boggling the best brains of Delhi for the past few days.
