Time for us to move beyond the usual “Ta-da” about us introduction you have seen on this website since inception.
I will not bore you with the most boring section of the website called as “About Us” by giving you blah about what we do. Will keep it short and simple.
This website TheMangoMan.co.in is a platform depicting the interpretation of day-to-day events through the eyes of A Mango Man.
Why name this “The Mango Man”?
This is something Robert Vadhra can answer better than us. He discovered the mango man of this country. Till then,
we were living in obscurity, busy in our day-to-day life struggling to meet ends, greasing palms of our netas and the baggage which comes along with them (read : police, babu, ….).
Why the tagline “Views of Cattle Class”?
Don’t blame me for picking so many lines and words from congress party neta’s dictionary. The nation’s damaad (Vadhra ji) led to the name of website. This was followed by another discovery from none other than, nation’s most flamboyant politician Shashi Tharoor. He is the one, who discovered the cattle class while travelling economy class in a flight.
You got to appreciate the wry humor congress team carries with them. Not that, BJP is any less. It’s just that BJP is a serious party with a serious agenda (Ghar Waapsi, Hindutava, etc, etc) and when you are getting people to do ghar waapsi, you don’t have any provision to be sarcastic 🙂 .
Where do you get content to write on?
You got to be kidding us. Pick up a daily newspaper. Go through the first 3 pages and come back to us. We are full of shit…Sorry, i meant news.
From Neta to Abhineta. From cricketer to administrator, we are a nation of news.
On our website, we just process this in simple English mixed with seriousness and a pinch of humor.
Why so many grammatical mistakes?
We are a little under staffed presently. Though, we have applied for few of government schemes to fund us, we do not expect to be funded very soon looking at the good words we are writing for them.
And the corporate giants do not want to fund “The Mango Man”. They are too busy with bansals, bhels of industry 🙁
Till we get funded, you have to bear with grammar going for a toss on our website.
Where else can we find you?
Quoting and manipulating from Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gam
“Zindagi mein agar kuch banna ho, kuch haasil karna ho, kuch jeetna ho … toh hamesha apne neta ki suno … aur agar neta ki speech bhi koi jawab na de toh aankhen band karke apni kismat ko kosso … phir dekhna har manzil paar kar jaoge, har mushkil aasaan ho jayegi … Kyonki tumhey apni asliyat pata chalegi. Tum ek Mango Man ho jiska is desh main kuch nahi ho sakta. Isliye jyada filmi mat ho aur apne kaam par waapis jao”
P.S : The above dialogue is a modification of shahrukh’s dialogue from kabhi khushi kabhi gam. Karan Johar ji please don’t take us to court for copyright violation. We are too poor to afford a lawyer as of now.
On a serious note, here is our presence on other platforms:
Disclaimer : Most of you will confuse us with “Aam” Aadmi party/ The Mango Man Party (in English). Please don’t. This website does not support any political party. Like every mango man, we do get disillusioned with political parties from time to time. Nevertheless, sanity has prevailed and cynicism has taken over ideology. Now, we are over the phase of supporting anything “political”.
