While Global Warming has rightly been recognized as an issue of worldwide importance, scientists who have been warning people about the relatively lesser known phenomenon called 'Local Warming' are upset that they haven't been given their due. “Idiots. Fools. If we carry on like this, we run the risk of areas like T.Nagar, Abbotsbury and Kalakshetra Colony being completely submerged by the melting of nearby ice caps (refer photo). And we'll all be atop Annanagar tower, saying 'We told you so'!”, said a scientist representing Hardcore Association of Local Warming Activists (HALWA). Apparently, Annanagar is safe from a similar fate, because “You get everything in Annanagar itself. It's completely self-sufficient.”
“It isn't fair. These annoying 'Global Warming' snobs get films made by the likes of Al Gore and Edward Norton. And us? Even R.V.Ramani hasn't given us a call. No Michael Muthu play. No David Pascal charity concert. Zilch. Nada. The big empty.”, said another HALWA representative, foolishly refusing to pick up a call from noted theatre personality Kaveri Lalchand. “Perhaps we'd be better off positioning it as 'Glocal Warming'.”, he pondered, looknig greedily at some corporate looking guys in the vicinity.
However, according to sources, even HALWA seems better off than the plight of researchers working on the obscure phenomenon of “Gokul Warming”, where everyone named Gokul would eventually be submerged by the melting of nearby ice caps.
