Monty Singh was a wise man. The brightest in the land.
On that eventful Thursday, he received an email. This was a mail like.no.other.
It was from a Nigerian King.
A real friggin rich Nigger Raja. [P.C version - Niger. But different country]
Monty Singh was a pyoor Veggie. He didn’t like spam.
But this mail had to be genuine. His IIT alumnian brain could sense it. It was authentic. Right down to the black fonted signature in Wingdings.
He glanced through the contents. He couldn’t believe it. He read it again, this time slowly, and only then did the weight of the matter dawn on him.
He was chosen to participate in a Game show. A quiz of sorts.
Monty smirked. He was an ace quizzer. How he missed those days.
Flashback : Brought to you by Chintu Candy.
It was in seventh standard. He had had his morning’s cuppa’ Horlicks.
Then he went to BQC, thrashed Derek O’Brien mostly left, and occasionally right as well. Pinky Singh was a proud mother that day.
Monty came back from his reverie. He had to think this through.
Monty loved Probability. He simulated a random bit generator. Lady Luck was with him. “Go to Nigeria, you worthless bastard!”, she bellowed.
The queue for the Visa was shorter than he had expected. There was just one local brown model visiting the country for a Fair and Lovely – Limited Nigerian Edition ad-shoot. He grinned as he saw the neighbouring ‘US of A’ Visa line, mostly consisting of bespectacled grad wannabees.
He was received in Nigeria, amidst a royal fanfare. He was led to the only 7 star hotel in the country - Bobby Da Dhaba. Monty felt right at home.
He woke up that morning, and got himself a beer.
Oops. Wrong post!!!
Monty was up and soon spiffily dressed himself. His father’s pink tie would go well with his lemon yellow shirt.
Karan Johar, the host, looked surprisingly hetero that morning. Must be all that Koffee, thought Monty. “Never mind his temporary non-gayness”. “Concentrate”, he said to himself, as he walked to the stage, which was lit by a thousand colour-colour LED’s. A sight to behold.
Monty raced through the questions like Usain Bolt on steroids. They didn’t call him “Monty Mastermind” just like that.
The final question. This was a toughie. Monty kept his cool. He worked it out. Ruddy Brilliant. He was dingchakkingly good.
“And now Mr.Monty. How bout a bonus round”, shrieked Johar.
“ A flirty car, or you lose it all…..”
No, wait. No one had told him about a bloody bonus round.
As if reading his concerns, Johar replied, “ Don’t worry, Its just a tiny game of probability”.
Gosh. Monty almost had a tiny orgasm.
“ Very similar to the Monty Hall scenario, I take it that you know about it”, asked Johar.
“Pfft. Know about it? Why do you think my dad named me Monty?”
“Oh. I thought that was because you like to….. Never mind…”
“Ok. All the doors are hidden behind this wall. Just for kicks”. “And…”
“Oh. Will you start already”. “I choose door no.2”. “Which car is it btw?”
“Premier Padmini’s hot friend, Diablo Lamborghini….” “ Whate joke . Whate joke. Ha . Ha.. I know . I can be a pain in the bottoms sometimes”, quipped Karan Johar.
“Ok. Mr.Monty. I’ll open door no.1 and… WTF…”.
“Damn you, Nigerians, stop touching my goat”.
Monty’s brain started working faster than a computer. All those nuggets from Dasgupta, and T.M.H, heck even some from Krishna’s came back to him in a rush. He evoked Bayes, and his conditional Probabilistic models. And in a jiffy, the answer was gambolling right in front of his eyes.
“So, Mr. Monty, what’s your call? Will you flip your choice, or keep it?”
“ Duh. Flip my choice. Obs”.
“Ok. Have it your way.” ……. “ “Hurrah, You win….”
“ the goat”.
“There were only two doors. Retard”….
All rise for the Nigerian Anthem.
P.S : Monty Singh was a wise man. The brightest in the land.
Update – 7-10-2008
Atul asked me whether this was a Himesh Reshammiya belting post? Actually, I am currently cursing myself for not noticing that Himesh is playing Monty’s role in Karzzzzzzz ( Did I miss a ‘z’? ).
Quoting Himesh – “ Rishi Kapoor is the best-looking Monty, I’m the worst” – We agree.
That, friends, is a different Full-Monty-Problem altogether.
