The Congress Government, known for its tactical bent to deflect any charges against its members, is at it again. Reacting to the 2G Scam and widespread agitation demanding the suspension of Mr. Raja, the Congress top brass is believed to have suspended music director Yuvan Shankar Raja from all his duties. The South Indian Film Chamber today received an official correspondence from the ruling party confirming this development. “After thorough investigations on the matter, it is believed that the basis of the 2G Scam started in the movie 7G Rainbow Colony. The Congress Government demands that Mr. Yuvan Shankar Raja, who played to the tune in the movie, to be suspended from all duties with immediate effect”, read out Varadharajan, who was happy to be back in the film circuit with his usual news-reading role. “This is dedicated to Mr. K.Balachander” he added leaving everyone confused on whether the famous director had anything to do with the 2G Scam or was the news-reader just thanking his mentor in the film industry.

Yuvan Shankar Raja was shattered on hearing the news and was unavailable for comment. The musician suffered another blow as Vijaikanth, referred to as the Captain of the Tamil Film Industry, too ruled out any support. “Spectrum and Rainbow. 2G and 7G. The evidences are all stacked against him. All this would not have happened had they been the true Tamilan and named the movie in Tamil”, he said. Meanwhile the CBI has linked up with Escape Cinemas to review a few movies in relation to the 2G Scam. “They have directed us to screen G (Ajit Starrer), Saarpu SarpuG (Song from Va Quarter Cutting) and G3 (Golmaal 3). Tickets for the first movie will not be a problem, but the other two being new releases, the CBI needs to do advanced booking through thecinema.in. In Satyam Cinemas, we don’t give preferential treatment” said an employee of the most coveted multiplex in South India. “We have already approached a few IT Professionals and College students who have what it takes to get those tickets. Ironically, there will be no Escape”, said a CBI Spokesman.

“A-Raja-gam”, lamented an AIADMK MLA who has now been nominated for a training course with tamilmatrimony.com on fixing alliances. Raja on the other hand was cool and composed now that the issue has been diverted to unrelated frontiers. When asked if he would step down, he chuckled “No. I would rather stay in the back foot and play a Sehwag style cut shot”. Psychologists and other experts who have been reviewing the “cool as a cucumber” behaviors of Mr. Raja concluded that his technical expertise in the matter is what is instilling confidence in him. “Apparently being tech SAVVY is the KEY to success #TamilPun. Mr. Raja does just that” tweeted one of the experts.

Meanwhile, in more bizarre incidents, Shiv Nadar, Chairman of HCL Technologies, continuing on his philanthropic ventures, has decided to donate 10% of the 2G Spectrum losses back to the government. Apparently it took all of SSN College Alumni, now doing MBA Finance in IIMs to pitch in and tell him that you distribute percentage of profit to people and not loss. Lessons on profit and loss by these IIM grads seem to have instilled new found interest in Accounts for the students of the engineering. “How do college students do accounts?? Men-tally”, chuckled a student in his final year engineering. 2G=2*9.8 = 19.6, I wonder how people reported a 17.6Lakh Crore loss, wondered another student trying to combine his accounting and scientific prowess.
