Mishra Swoons

India Today - - UPFRONT - @ShougatDas­gupta

Who would have thought a week of near-con­stant press at­ten­tion cou­pled with a hunger strike could be bad for your health? Kapil Mishra, who ap­pears de­ter­mined to pin ev­ery crime in In­dia on Arvind Ke­jri­wal, fainted be­fore the as­sem­bled press. Some on­line sug­gested Mishra might have done bet­ter to watch videos of peo­ple faint­ing be­fore at­tempt­ing his own am­a­teur ef­fort. To be fair, Mishra did look peaky as he stood up after yet an­other pas­sion­ate con­dem­na­tion of Ke­jri­wal. Bran­dish­ing a copy of a cheque, hav­ing ac­cused AAP of fail­ing to dis­close funds and threat­en­ing to drag Ke­jri­wal to jail by his neck, Mishra could barely raise a wan smile for pho­tog­ra­phers be­fore sway­ing and crum­pling gen­tly into the arms of those around him like a swoon­ing princess. A lit­tle de­hy­drated, said a phleg­matic doc­tor. He should be fit soon enough to re­sume his Twit­ter spat with Ke­jri­wal’s wife.
