Club Elections

27 May

Talking of Elections, the next set of Elections in Bangalore are Club elections. While they lack the scale, theres the same intensity. Here theres less money and more ego.

Come last week of June, Bangalore Club, Century Club, Bangalore Golf Club, Karnataka Golf Association etc all have their elections. Being member to more than one, you find the same old faces requesting you for votes across the various clubs.

Its good timepass. As I said the scale is small.. but theres drama.

My favorite Club Election story is about a certain Doctor.

So this guy is a friend of my dads. He has this “interesting” behaviour. When I am with my Dad, he talks to me all nice and cheery. But when I run into him on my own, he looks through me.

Few years ago he stood for election. He meets me in the club and asks me to vote for him (during elections I guess he talked to every one) . I say “Ok”… on the outside.. Inside I am like “No way”.. Come election day I vote for someone else.

The Result: He loses by ONE vote 😀

    Good Post Vijay…

    Do they also give color TV? 🙂 Probably he didn’t read your old post about that, otherwise he would have won (after getting your vote)…

    Oh Color TV weakness aa?! 😀

    But whatever the reason, you should have stuck to your word! Poor guy he would have atleast entered a ‘bowl out’ phase! 😀

    Are you a member of any Japanese clubs over there by any chance Vijay? If so you could stand for “erection”. It’s quite exciting I believe.

    @Chitra: Bwuuuhhhaaahhaaaa.. the poor doctor never stood for elections after that.. of course dad was not too happy with me..
