Bipin Das, a resident of Nungambakkam, was temporarily transformed into a chest-thumping, fire-breathing uber-patriot for a period of seventeen minutes after watching the hit film 'Rang De Basanti' last week. Sources reveal that Das left the cinema hall with a distinct swagger, sneering at fellow theatre-goers wearing branded foreign clothes and making mental notes to hoist a tricolour atop his terrace. He also seemed mildly guilty for his erstwhile support for evil western forces such as Manchester United and ZZTop.
Fortunately for his family and friends, however, the effects wore off a few minutes later, somewhere between Alwarpet and T.Nagar. He is reportedly back to normal, watching M.A.S.H reruns and hiding naughty pictures of Jenna Jameson under his bed. Er . . . normal for him, that is.
