Watch: Why comedian Rahul Subramanian says Rahul Gandhi is the only true politician in India

Because, unlike others, he does not get offended by jokes about him.


“My name is Rahul and I’m not a Gandhi.” Say hello to stand-up comedian Rahul Subramanian, who insists that, unlike the Congress leader, his jokes are intentional.

Then he makes a very relevant observation in his new video (above): at a time when everyone seems to get offended about everything, and even comedians are increasingly being persecuted for “offensive jokes” about political figures, humour related to the Congress leader Rahul Gandhi remains the sole exception.

“Even Sonia Gandhi sends WhatsApp jokes,” he quips to the audience’s thunderous approval. “And that’s a sign of a true politician, who can take jokes on himself.”

At the other end of the political spectrum, he observes, is “He Who Must Not Be Named” – the one who no one can make a joke about. He describes it as a “56-inches chest clash”. But that is not all – there is also an in-between. “Beech mein you have Kejriwal. On odd days, you can make jokes about him, on even days you cannot,” he jokes about the Delhi Chief Minister’s Odd-Even programme to curb pollution in the city.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
