[55-Fiction]~The Power of Media!

28 Jun

Prabha Dutt

On overhearing a few people talk in a hush-hush tone, she got to know that Amitabh Bachchan was shot – not once, but several times – by someone unknown. So not wasting much time, she rushed to the nearest post office and sent a telegram to her boss. It was 1975, and Sholay β€œBreaking News”!


He knew who the hot-cakes were, how to approach them, what to do, what to ask and when the right time to bell the cat was. He knew it all. This time too he did it with the same passion, same vigor. He chased her hard, till she crashed. He didn’t know he could kill.

PS: These are my non-competitive entries to the on-going BPL’s Super 4 round ka topic “55 Fiction/comic on power of media”.
It’s non-competitive as my team – “The Inscribe Tribe” – was eliminated in the Super 5 stage.

1) Late Prabha Dutt is Barkha Dutt’s mom, and was a well-known journalist working for The Hindustan Times in the 70s and early 80s till her untimely death. The 55-er though is fictional πŸ˜›
2) For the unknown, Princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris in 1997 while being chased by the papparazi.
