BATTLE OF WITS
Aiyar: Karan, you had said I was the best interviewee you ever had. Why am I not in your book?
Thapar: As nice as you are Mani, you are not a woman.
Aiyar: Why are you not seen on TV anymore?
Thapar: The BJP government has decided to forsake me.
Aiyar (amid laughter): So you’re waiting for us to win.
Aiyar: Let me do a Karan Thapar and interrupt you. (When woman from audience raises hand to ask question)
Aiyar: I hope you put him on the mat.
Aiyar: You steal politicians of their honour despite being glib on some subjects.
Thapar: Speaking glibly has stood me a great stead in life.
