Chennai-Delhi distance, boon or bane?

CNN-IBN's Battle for Tamil Nadu was probably the best election show by a "northern" news channel on tomorrow's elections. Perhaps I'm supporting the show because it was shot in the lawns of my alma mater, but really it was much better than NDTV's show hosted by Barkha Dutt - the latter was simply too distant from the people.

Cho Ramaswamy was there, as he was in NDTV's show the other day; it is a tribute to his popularity that he is sought after by every news channel. And Cho-isms were in abundance. The best of it all was this...

Rajdeep: "So, is the Chennai-Delhi distance a boon or a bane? Mr Ramaswamy, you have the final word."
Cho: "Without doubt, the distance is a boon. You can pack off 60 people from Tamil Nadu, and keep them a long distance away from here. Of course, it is a boon!"

Without a doubt, Comedy actor, Vadivelu had come up with an amazing comedy strip in the movie "Pudhumaipithan"...

Since Distance is the problem, we will just shift Tamilnadu and place right near Delhi to avoid initial supplies to Oopi, Maapi and Kaapi...
