Kyonki Dadajee Bhi Kabhi Driver Thhe….


Courtesy - The Unreal Times

Episode 18678 - Rajnath shows concern for Adwhiney

Telecast Date: Friday the 13th - 15th 2013


Minutes after Moody is anointed as the new chariot driver of the Kamal family for the Great Chariot Races, he rushes to rejected driver, Dadajee(DJ) Adwhiney to sort out their differences and seek his blessings. Adwhiney has yet to come to terms that despite being the head charioteer for decades and causing riots like his arch rival Moody, he has been discarded like a banana peel. The patriarch refuses to accept that at sexty-three, fast and furious Moody is Lotus family’s only hope for a win in the marathon against the evil Gundi family. Unfortunately, at 85, Adwhiney jee the Iron Man (Louh Purush) of the K family is rusting.

As he enters DJs chamber, Moody overhears him seeking tips from Afridi on how to remain 18 forever. Moody blushes a deep shade of saffron before rushing headlong to DJ jee’s feet. He tries his best to mute the noise of bubbling ladoos in his heart because he can’t bear to see Adwhiney burst into tears, yet again. DJ is no mood to forgive Moody for putting a brake to his race to the finishing line. He is distraught that he will never be allowed to run over the economy like Gundi family in his out of control chariot.


DJ has been crying a lot lately even when he’s not watching Chennai Express. The thought of having coconut mein lassi mila key makes him very emotional.

Rajnath has been trying his best to pacify DJ by making him watch reruns of Golmal, Golmal returns and Golmal should never return. He even makes Addy jee eat MacDonald’s Happy Meal to cheer him up. Sushma dances to patriotic songs in an attempt to boost his sagging morale. It’s only when Gadkari sings ‘zindagi kaisi hai paheli hai, kabhi ye rulaye kabhi ye hasaye” does Adwhiney ask everyone to get lost.

When Rajnath announces Moody’s coronation as Kamal family’s head driver, DJ prefers to skip and sulk in a corner. This affects Raj’s state of mind but he’s compelled to put a lid on his heart and announce – Bhaiya, all izz well!

All is indeed well when DJ driver throws in the towel by agreeing to share the front seat with Moody at a Rath rally in Bhopal, after being isolated and eclipsed. While some described it as DJ’s “surrender”, others viewed it as a “tactical retreat to live to fight another day”.

Will Shobha De, the angel of dropped towels hail Adwhiney as the new poster boy of Bonking! Will DJ move to Mars to pursue his charioteer dreams? Will Moody defeat Gundi family at the Great Chariot Race to emerge victorious? Will Gundi family resort to gandi tactics? Will Moody alter IMFs credit rating! Will US of A finally grant him a visa to visit his bhaiyon and behno in pardes? Most importantly, is sixty the new forty? Brace yourselves for this and much more in the next 500 episodes of ‘Kyonki Dadajee bhi kabhi driver thhe’.

  2. Much of your recent political (and related) satire has been very hard-hitting, to the point where the humor is strongly tinged with anger and bitterness, a universal situation I guess when we try to write about what we see happening around us. This one was real fun.

  3. Wah ji wah!

    To a country whose average population is very young, 60+ year old man seems nothing as we are totally bowled over by the greatness and awesomeness of aged wisdom. To us old people are the most trust worthy.
    Even the youngest of the young - Sachin Pilot from the other spectrum is older than I am. So I feel really great!
    We are a young nation driven by experienced, err old, frail leaders with age old wisdom.

  7. I am still scared because of what Adwhiney can still do. I hope for the sake of everyone's sanity that he does not stage an aamaran anshan. We have had enough of his school boy tauntrums.
    And lets give the new driver a chance. I am already dreaming of Delhi turning into Singapore.

  10. The kids today are more mature than Adwhiney, Moody or for that matter any other politician. Wonderful take.

  11. I don't know what is funnier, Adwhiney or the fact that he turns to Afridi for his "18 till I die" tips...

    ReplyDelete
  12. A good and humorous one.
    head charioteer for decades and causing riots like.... if one looks back all the terrorist attacks in India started after the so called Rath Yatra.
    Let us hope the change is for the good and yes....all izz well

  15. Isn't the Kamal Family quite used to finding itself in a ditch? Some might even say that they thrive only in keechad! Let's see if Moody does as good a job landing them there with his Rath-ing as his adopted forefather!

  20. 60 at present looks like the new 40. I wonder what happened to the 'Vaanprastha ashram' tradition that this Lotus family so boasts of, even at 83, they want to be the charioteer when one bump could see their heart failing.
    I think I'll need to change the way I see this race to run down the mango people of the banana republic. These new chariots have so good shockers that the rider doesn't even notice pot holes and gutters in the way where we all fall.
    But the one at 40 is still too young with his foot still in his mouth. Others, well they don't belong to the Gundi family to head the race, have to be content with whatever leftovers they are given even if they are pilots of sophisticated spacecrafts.

    Nice post.

  21. You may want to add a disclaimer to not end up in legal hassles, especially because the storyboard looks strikingly similar to another running show. Here is something that you can use..

    "All characters appearing in this show are fallacious. Any resemblance to real persons - living,dead or bearded is purely accidental"

  22. Yet another hilarious post. Absolutely loved it.

    Why did adwhiney in the horse chariot lose out to moody?
    Ans: since moody had guj-rat(h) i.e, elephant chariot backing him.

  30. Now you have ventured into my territory as well - pulling in ads into politics (Man mein laddoo phoota? :) ) :) Remains to be seen whether Moody is Ben Hur and the Prince is Messala or the other way round :) The Chariot races are always engrossing - it is in the aftermath when we feel like the Les Miserables ground under the wheels of the Juggernaut :)

  31. If only the politicians could see themselves the way we do...sans the garb of self importance, reduced to sulking brats. A hilarious take on senile ambitions!

  32. Yup...you are going to get arrested soon. Don't come running to me for help when they arrive at your door with an arrest warrant.
    But why was I imagining the scene from Ben Hur rather than Mahabharata?

  33. Adwhiney ji is still young. Maybe his time will come after 5 years. Meanwhile he is grateful that Veggiepie is not in the race.

  34. This is really a wonderful piece of creative writing. I really liked it.
