The Author Has Landed

Sometime in 2007, this blog started out mainly as a joke - a funny experiment to see if we could create a fictional parody character based on the likeness of Mr.Rakesh Jhunjhunwala who would laugh at this wonderful place called India as it tries to be a part of the world.

Through the years ,we've tried to entertain you with words,images, videos and tweets.

The time has now come to take it a step further...

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am happy to announce that I have signed my first book based on the 'Jhunjhunwala' character from 'The Secret Journal Of Rakesh Jhunjhunwala' blog. Let me mince no words and give you, the readers of the blog and the tweets my utmost and heartfelt thanks because it is you who have taken a guy who has for years clawed away in one small corner of the internet and made it one step easier for him to earn an opportunity at fulfilling a lifelong dream of becoming an author. 

Many times I have failed at entertaining you but thanks to the efforts of great men and women like Mayawati, Suresh Kalmadi, RR Patil, Sharad Pawar, Manmohan Singh, Rakhi Sawant, Rahul Gandhi, Chhagan Bhujbal , A.Raja, Karunanidhi, Mamata Banerjee, Ravindra Jadeja, Deve Gowda, Vijay Mallya, Obama, Bush, Shivraj Patil , Jayalalitha , Uday Chopra and countless others, I have partially succeeded or at least tried doing so.

You guys and the stalwarts above have helped get Random House to publish my debut humour novel and thanks to all of you I will be able to present my first book titled : 

'How To Become A Billionaire By Selling Nothing'

More can be found on the book page but in short the story is of a man who wants to sell 'Nothing' and becomes monstrously rich doing so.This is the cover :

The book hits stores on May 9th,2014 and is now  up for order from flipkart and Amazon.

Kindle and ebook versions are available post the 9th of May.

Stay tuned for more updates and do check out the book page,  twitter handle and and other book site links for more details.
Counting on your continued kickass support and admiration for my nonsense.

Remaining Awesome and Humble,
Sir Sri Jhunjhunwala aka Author(HELL YEAH!) Aditya Magal.

'I Did Not Rape That Girl. IT WAS A LIFT INSPECTION' - Tarun Tejpal

Dear Sir Sri Jhunjhunwala,

My name is Tarun Tejpal and I am not a rapist.

I used to run a magazine called Tehelka till I was forced to take a 6 month vacation .My idiot Managing Editor Shoma Chaudhury now runs the place while I do laceration and atonement.

No , Not the film 'Atonement' but you get the idea.

For the past few days News has been rife with news of something I was supposed to have done inside a Hotel Lift in Goa to a fellow employee at Tehelka.

I am writing this letter to you to put forward the facts of that night.I want to set the record straight.

1.) The event in itself can best be described  from many leaked emails and statements as rape , molestation , sexual harassment , sexual assault , sexual misconduct , sexual liason , sexual banter, one sided consensual sex, untoward incident  A LIFT INSPECTIONIt was a lift Inspection I had carried out that day with my young journalist friend. It had nothing to do with any criminal behavior of any kind.

2.) For long I have been worried about the state of India's elevators and LIFTS. More so, because our country's state of load bearing hydraulics and weight hoisting machinery from one floor to another has been very problematic.

3.) The problem of dangerous lifts was brought to my attention by well known singer and frequent Visa applicant, Adnan Sami who very beautifully annotated in his song 'Lift Kara de' the issue of weak and potentially fatal lifts.

4.) On the day of the incident I was merely doing a lift inspection, I had even hooked up one of my famous Tehelka sting operation cameras into the lift CCTV so that I could do a sting operation on the Hotel where I was staying. Unfortunately I found out much later that the lift had no CCTV in the first place.This was my sheer bad luck.

5.) I want to tell you categorically since you are the only person on this planet whose authority overrules even that of Arnab Goswami, The Supreme Court and The US President...combined, that I DID NOT RAPE THAT GIRL!

6.) It Was Completely Her Fault! She not only wore sexy clothes but also ate Chowmein and used fancy mobile phones - all of which have been comprehensively proven to cause rape according to Khap Panchayats. She was showing me pictures of Chowmein on her mobile phone in an attempt to titillate me!

7.) Despite such brazen provocations I did not get affected and continued to inspect the lift for faulty wiring,structural flaws,etc. It just so happened that this wiring happened to be in the girl's clothes and on her body.

8.) This is a political conspiracy to stop India from providing world class lifts to its citizens. The Congress and the BJP have once too often engaged in corruption and swallowed the funds meant for lift construction. These political parties want common people of India to be stuck in a tyranny of stair climbing while fat netas from their own parties continue to get LIFTED to higher levels.

9.) Tehelka has always stood for Strong and fair journalism. I am confident that despite my atonement they will reach higher levels...literally,because I have told Shoma to put more lifts in the Tehelka office building.Thus we will break our dependence on the laceration caused to our feet  by walking and climbing stairs.


In Conclusion - I Did Not Rape That Girl. IT WAS A LIFT INSPECTION - I REITERATE

Journalist and Lift Inspector,
Tarun Tejpal
