I am sure everyone remembers the legendary Rosesh from Sarabhai vs Sarabhai. That guy was hilarious!
But little did we know back then that there will be a real life Rosesh as well. One that didn’t just want to write bizarre poetry but even want to govern the country!
Yeah, I am talking about our beloved Pappu a.k.a Rahul Gandhi. There have been very few ‘politicians’ who have managed to entertain the entire nation at such grand levels, as our Pappu ji has managed to do.
And there you go, right there is the very first point of similarity between Rosesh Sarabhai and Rahul Gandhi. Not convinced yet?
Well then, lets just find out more points of similarity:
1. Momma’s boys!
Rosesh couldn’t function without momma. And what do you see Rahul Gandhi doing most of the time? He’s talking to his momma. Asking her what to do next. Or he’s always walking behind her with his head hanging down.
Well well, here’s a boy who has been unfairly brought out in the big bad world of politics and is trying his best to hide behind his mommy’s pallu!
Life isn’t a bed of roses for Rosesh either. Momma to rescue again!
2. Rosesh’s poems don’t make sense just like Pappu’s statements.
Our dear Pappu spelled out gems like:
“Politics is everywhere, it’s in your shirt, it’s in your pants”
“Poverty is a state of mind, if you have confidence, you will overcome it“.
And here’s an excerpt from one genius poetry by Rosesh:
“Momma ka purse, jaise hospital ki pyaari koi nurse
Purse mein rakha tissue paper karta hai paseene ka ilaaj..”
Well, Well, Well..
3. Foot-in-mouth disease!
So many times, Rahul Gandhi has said the wrong things at the wrong time that humanity has lost track. In Punjab, he said something like, “Hindustan ek soch hai. Hindustan ek jagah hai….magar Hindustan ek soch hai.” I mean WHAT EVEN!?
And our Rosesh baba is no less. Remember how he ALWAYS spilled the beans in front of momma a.k.a Maya Sarabhai?
4. The battle of Dumb-Dumber-Dumbest.
Rahul Gandhi literally can’t get anything right! He almost always messes up his speeches. In one of the rallies, he read a printed speech like, “The women… sorry (flipping pages)… women have said… (flipping pages) … Sorry… I lost it… oh! yeah… Women…” By this time the audience had lost him.
Don’t believe me?
And when it comes to Rosesh, well he couldn’t even get himself right..forget about getting anything else right!
5. No one believes in these boys (except their “mommas” of course), but everyone believes the fact that they juuust can’t change!
These boys defies all levels of “boys will be boys (in a dumb way)!”.
No one believes in Rahul Gandhi or his ability to govern the country. But people do accept that Pappu is always gonna be Pappu.
Ram Jethmalani is particularly mean when he says, “Election commission asks everyone to disclose their financial assets, for Pappu, they should ask him to declare the intellectual assets!”
And well Rosesh? No one believed in him or his abilities in the show either. We’ll have to wait for Season 2 to find out more, though!
And like I said before, both of them make us laugh, don’t they?
