The favorite comedian of masses died yesterday. Like many others, I also thought it was just an act of fun and I'ld soon find myself laughing at his newest gag. But it wasn't. Can’t believe he’s not coming back amused that once again he took everyone by surprise.
I still remember watching Flop Show on DD and its subsequent reruns on all the major channels. I had loved the program so much that went out of way to download all its episodes, even if it meant buying an additional hard disk because the data was kind of too much or exceeding the allowed usage of our monthly broadband plan – Flop Show deserved it all. There have been countless occasions when I’ve quoted dialogues from the show and stole the limelight, or when I couldn’t stop breaking into laughter at the simplicity (but intelligence) of this brilliant human being who had the God-gifted talent to make everyone breezy.
Jaspal Bhatti gave the gift of clever comedy to the Indian cinema. No person has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for this beautiful art. Our laughter originated from Jaspal Bhatti and his spirit will forever be the foundation of humour.

I still hope this news of his dying is bogus, but if this is what the world-drama wants, let the soul depart into its new birth peacefully and continue to spread its cheerfulness. God bless his family.
