Five reasons Mamata Banerjee is one of the ‘Famous Bengali Legends’

We ❤️ Mamata.

A Twitter user who goes by the handle Squint Neon yesterday shared an image which had pictures of ‘Famous Bengali legends’.

The image included Bengal Chief Minister and TMC chief Mamata Banerjee as one of the legends. And I agree. She is indeed a legend. The multi-talented, multi-faceted multiple personalities that Mamata displays one wonders why she has not established herself in a museum already. What makes her so great?

1. Mamata Banerjee is the Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insaan of politics, just the milder version, though

And we are talking only about the talent here, not controversies. In his film MSG Insaan, the spiritual guru-turned filmmaker who ended up as a rape convict, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insaan (fondly called PapaG by his fans) has played 42 spectacular roles.

Just as how PapaG is the writer, director, actor, editor, action director, so on and so forth, Mamata Banerjee, who is also fondly called Didi can play the musical instrument like an accordion, pen lyrics and even sing.

2. The pen is mightier than the sword

Penning lyrics reminds me, have you heard she takes to poetry to register a dissent? She wrote poetry to mark a protest against demonetisation and then recently she wrote a poem to target Prime Minister Modi’s government on the NRC. She picked up the pen to ‘combat saffron terror‘ where she basically equated the “illegal” with “untouchables”. However, if you go through the first few lines of the poem, it appeared that her anger was more directed toward the fact that she couldn’t go to Chicago and China for her ‘diplomatic’ visits.

Do you want to go to China?
No Comments please.
Political Diplomacy cancelled it.
Want to visit Chicago?
To commemorate 125 years of
Swami Vivekananda’s address?
Religious monopoly shut down the door.

Fact is, the organisers had cancelled her China programme and the Ministry of External Affairs had nothing to do with it. Her Chicago programme was also cancelled as a mark of respect to a Ramakrishna Mission monk who had passed away. Fair enough, friends, fine touch. Moving on to next talent.

3. Paintbrush is even mightier than pen

Speaking of talents, how can one miss out on the obvious. Mamata Banerjee’s paintings, some of which could be passed off as self-portraits in the abstract form, have been sold for crores. A self-taught artist, Mamata Banerjee has even accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of being jealous of her ‘talent’.

4. Protests against investigation of scams – the worthy leader for ‘United Opposition’

When the Opposition leaders are themselves facing corruption charges and are being probed by investigating authorities, Mamata Banerjee emerges as their tall leader who sat on a dharna against the Supreme Court ordered probe in the Saradha chit fund scam. Unprecedented scenes unfolded in Kolkata in February when the Kolkata Police arrested CBI officials who had come to investigate the Saradha chit fund scam. Apparently, Manik Majumdar, a close aide of the West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, was questioned by the CBI over the sale proceeds of the paintings (like the one above) and how they were utilized. Hence, Mamata can take the bastion put an end to the speculation on who could be the unanimous leader of Opposition, at least as far as the corruption accusations are concerned.

5. Modi did it!

When a random man went mental on Mamata’s Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal and threw chilli powder on him, he blamed it on Modi. Similarly, when a private airline’s flight hovered over Delhi airport due to air traffic congestion, it was seen as a murder attempt at Mamata Banerjee by Modi government. Recently, Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government pulled out of Central Government’s healthcare scheme Ayushman Bharat because Mamata thought Modi is getting full credit.
