Guwahati Adda: Dharna Masters

1st Chap: Amar, iyate bor action hua hoise! (Lots of action happening in our region). Ek pine Citizenship Bill got lapsed, which was our victory! (Random strangers cheer, “hurray”) And then everyone seems to be claiming victory for it; people and party supporters seem to be enjoying the regional leaders’ showboating. 

 

2st Chap: But now the Citizenship Bill is dead, at least for the time being. Now we should all mourn the deaths of the CRPF jawans who lost their lives yesterday.

 

3rd Chap: I know! We should protest about the heinous attack and demand another surgical strike.

 

4th Chap: Well said. Spoken like a true nationalist!

 

1st Chap: How do you think we should do that?

 

3rd Chap: Well, for starters, let’s burn the Pakistani flag!

 

4th Chap: Swell! Well done!

[random strangers cheer, “hurray”]

 

2nd Chap: I’ll make some calls and gather some people.

 

3rd Chap: In the meantime, I’ll go and print out some flags for us to burn.

 

1st Chap: Ooh, we can use something like the Shakti app!

 

1st Chap: Or, you could just activate your existing WhatsApp groups. No other brand has ever managed to mobilize people together like a WhatsApp group.

 

2nd Chap: Especially like my family group! Everyone takes my case together because I’m not studying for my boards.

 

3rd Chap: Bola bola, Flag jolau bola (Come, let’s burn the flag).

 

4th Chap: Hear hear! The best protestor, caught on camera gets a party from me.

 

1st Chap: And how will you determine the best?

 

4th Chap: Well, for starters, his face should be plastered all across social media and newspapers tomorrow!

 

3rd Chap: Okay let me call some people and send them invitations for the “flag burning dharna.” I’m sure my contacts will ensure that I will appear everywhere, and that way, I can then become “The Accidental Neta.”
