We were arguing on this but were interrupted by Baba Ramdev and Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti, famous for her “haramzaadon” remark, who began an argument on how and why we held the wedding reception of my son at the YMCA Club Ahmedabad where I am writing this from. Weren’t there any clubs in NaMo’s Gujarat with a more patriotic name? Then came the telephone call from (who else) Kiran Bedi, who has the habit of interfering in everything. She wanted to do the secret diary. That woman! I just don’t know how I and NaMoji asked her to contest the Delhi assembly polls! Well, we live and learn!
