The poll gimmicks: jootagiri

Its ridiculous times and joggernauts by the media and agencies.
The second poll by star news :203 seats for UPA, 191 seats for the NDA and 104 for the Third Front.

And a strange phenomenon (Which I seem to be liking is the Shoe gates) the shoe gate has become predominant, its interesting and curios who all will be targeted. Infact one reason is the lack of outlet on the politicians. It is just of late that a couple of humour based comedy shows have started making fun of Indian politicians. And seriously except the CNN IBN’s The week that wasn’t and the Election that wasn’t and the NDTV show Gustaki Maaf.

But as such the regional and hindi language shows are a little bit short of taking and clear potshots / criticism on the Political class. This sociological point of study can and is worth a point.
I believe the show gate is a result of this awakening.
