Guruji Speaks - Candidates

Ladies, Gentlemen and Ladymen,

Guruji is here to converse with you. All of you have his summer blessings, do get started with your queries and concerns.

[Q] Max asks - Guruji, what is the logic behind most political parties fielding film actresses in elections ? Are they the best people to lead our nation?

[A] Guruji - Son, you have raised a very important question here. Because, in the history of English language, this is the first time someone is using the word 'logic' alongside actresses and political parties in the same sentence, and for the same reason Guruji or any other scholar cannot answer it either. However to help you, Guruji's ashram has got in touch with all the said actresses and got their responses directly. Here are the top 5 answers they got. Please note that the names of respondents are not disclosed here and that is not to protect their identities but because you already know them and repetition creates boredom.

[ Actress-candidate 1 ]: "I thought this will be a good opportunity for me to serve the society, especially the womanhood, by exhibiting my great collection of sarees and sandals to them."

[ Actress-candidate 2 ]: "I was trapped into it in fact. When they said campaign, I thought it was a new ad campaign for UV protection glasses, realized only very late that I was a candidate too."

[ Actress-candidate 3 ]: "They said it will help improving my acting skills."

[ Actress-candidate 4 ]: "I wanted to get tanned."

[ Actress-candidate 5 ]: "You think 1, 2, 3 and 4  got something that I don't have? If they are in it, I'm in it too."

Guruji hope that answers your question.

[Q] Miss L asks - Guruji, is it necessary that one has to be a vegetarian to lead a truly spiritual life?

[A] Guruji - Dear Miss L, Guruji had mentioned this on many occasions earlier too, it is not what you eat but how you earn it is important. If you are a strict vegetarian, yet earn your food by tricking others - i.e by being a thief, a thug, an astrologer, a Bollywood script writer, a political son-in-law, a godman etc, you are no spiritual than a capuchin monkey. Hence Guruji's advice to you is to eat what you like, but make sure you obey traffic rules, pay your taxes, take bath, don't generally screw around and you will be more spiritual than any spiritually vegetarian capuchin monkeys.

[Q] Kumar asks - Guruji, what is a Free Market Economy ?

[A] Guruji - Son, Free Market Economy or FME is a market mechanism built on the “Buy 1 get 1 Free” principle. The crux of it is that it gives consumers the freedom to choose - between walking away and falling into the vendor’s trap that is. Today, other variants of FME have also found adoption in many of the world’s leading economies such as Switzerland, Luxembourg and Reliance-retail. Some of them are - ”Buy 3 get 3 Free, “Buy 2 kilos of chicken and get a baboon brain absolutely Free etc.

[Q] Mr.Sharma asks - Guruji, I have an office job. I don’t have any opportunity to engage in physical activities and this is resulting in substantial weight gain. Can you advise some good yoga techniques to loss weight quickly ?

[A] Guruji - Son, firstly, as Guruji always pointed out, yoga is not a one stop solution for all your urban upper-class problems. Now about weight control, there are two aspects to it. One is dietary restrictions and the other is physical exercises. For dietary control, employ a cook who has experience with airline caterers or Indian railways, you will rarely feel the urge to eat if at all. Coming to exercises, it is a good practice to walk around in the office occasionally, hence shift to the farthest corner from the reception, you sure will be forced to take an occasional stroll around the floor, especially with that newly appointed, living NY-fashion week adorning the reception. You have Guruji’s blessings.

Children, it’s time for Guruji to say goodbye to you all for the time being, he will meet you right here, same time next week, unless a front-office policy change force him to stay put in office longer.
