BAND BAJAA IN MODILAND
Earlier, as we entered Modinagar – not that Modi's nagar – we ae greeted by a giant poster of Gujarmal Modi who founded this town starting with a sugar mill in 1933. Today, some of us associate him with being IPL founder Lalit Modis grandfather. Here, I encounter Raju. Just Raju, who owns a franchise of his own: The Great Milap Band. His shop also provides horses, buggies, lights generators, dhols and foreworks if and when required. So which political party does he think will hire The Great Milap Band and its accessories on March 11 when the election results are announced? “It's heard to tell, but all I can say is that the wedding season's back again on March 1 and 2. And that's all I care for.” Is that the voice of the new Uttar Pradesh that goes to the polls from today?
