This is only a tribute to the makers of Nukkad, the popular TV Serial which ran during the 80’s. Due to my inability to write in Hindi, I am writing all the dialogues in English.
I will be willing to give the pseudo-copy rights of this episode if somebody can translate it into Hindi. Any inconsistencies please excuse because I have written the dialogues with whatever I remember about these characters.
This is just an imagination of how the election of Barack Obama as Prez of US would have been welcomed in Nukkad
This episode starts off with the theme song “Bade Sehar ke ek gali mein basa hua hai Nukkad”.
Enter Teacherji, Guru gives her the yearning glance and she announces “Listen, Obama has become the President of USA and it is great honor for us because his family still lives in a nukkad like ours”
Dukhiya “What use it is to us?”
Guru “Aree, Dukhiya, what is the use in being you born, Teacherji knows better than all of us, when she says better listen”
Thambi (in a low tone) “Carry on Guru with your efforts”. Teacherji explains briefly about Obama, White House, importance of the election results, etc.
Enter, Radha “Will I get a chance to work at his palace what you call White House?”
Hari “Radha cant you think beyond yourself, tomorrow we will celebrate the success of Obama”
Kadar Bhai “Samosas and Chai sponsored by me”
Khopdi steps in to say “Will I get to drink?”, everybody give him a banning stare and he changes his tone to say” When Obama from Kenya can become a President, why not a President of India from Nukkad?. Everybody gives him an appreciate look.
Ganpat Hawaldar joins in to say “Sometimes Khopdi you make a lot of sense”.
The entire Nukkad starts discussing who could be their Presidential and Vice-Presidential Candidate for the next election, first they propose the name of Guptaji, later decide he would be another John Mcain and decide to propose Teacherji for Prez and Guru for Vice-Prez. They all get busy with preparing for the next day celebrations of Obama victory and the episode ends.
