Queer Engagement

April 10 2017

Journalist Hemant Sharma, whose meteoric rise under the BJP dispensation has been quite a spectacle, arranged for his daughter’s engagement ceremony in Hotel Taj Mansingh in the national capital recently. It was quite a galaxy of high profile politicos. Sharma’s daughter Ishani is a law graduate, while her fiancé is an IPS officer of the Madhya Pradesh cadre. The occasion, however, brought to fore some comic reliefs. For instance, the two estranged brothers of the Samajwadi Party, Shivpal Yadav and Ram Gopal Yadav, both reached the venue at the same time; both of them alighted the dais to bless the couple together; both stole glances at each other, but none spoke to the other. Two bitter rivals and Congress stalwarts too had a similar comedy of errors: Janardan Dwivedi and Motilal Vohra too reached the venue at the same time and were on the stage together. None spoke. Likewise was the case for two other rivals, Pramod Tiwari and Naresh Agrawal.
