It seems that the nation’s twitterers are simply poised; waiting in the sidelines for a new story to hit the headlines so they can start manufacturing new witticisms in their respective virtual humour factories. Since the abrupt and unexplained ouster of Cyrus Mistry as Chairman of Tata Sons the Twits (twitter wits and other jokesters) exploded with these:
When it was announced that Cyrus Mistry, Chairman of Tata Sons had been removed and that Ratan Tata his mentor and predecessor was to take his place in the interim.
The mentor is trying to dislodge the protégée in UP politics (the current faceoff between father Mulayam and son Akhilesh Yadav) and here as well, Ratan Tata the mentor has dislodged his protégé Cyrus Mistry.
Clearly Mistry is a Mystery and Cyrus becomes serious! And as for the play upon the surname Tata, well there were more “Ta Tas” on Twitter than on the back of trucks and buses yesterday!
When Mistry was appointed 4 years ago, the headline said Mystery Ends, Mistry Begins and yesterday it said the opposite.
Ratan Tata made an ‘intolerance’ comment a few days back. No intolerance comment goes unpunished; even if it is made by the country's top, most respected industrialist.
