BREAKING: Arundhati Roy arrested by fashion police!

After appearing at a public event a couple of days ago, noted writer and regular user of Dabur Amla Hair Oil, Arundhati Roy, was arrested in the evening today for crimes against fashion. She has been taken into stylist custody. Tomorrow morning, she will appear before a panel headed by Justice Tim Gunn which will decide on further action to be taken. Her sentence might include watching the movie The Devil Wears Prada everyday for the next year and a free lifetime subscription to Vogue magazine.

An insider who refused to publically give his name as he wasn’t appropriately dressed said that Ms. Roy has been repeatedly warned against committing such heinous offences like wearing a cocktail dress to a morning event and buying off the rack.

Noted designer Manish Malhotra termed her outfit at the public event as a ”seditious felony against couture”. “She acts as if the rules of fashion do not apply to her”, he continued.

Sources in the ministry of fashion told us that in a report submitted by LIFW agents assigned to spy on her it was revealed that she gets her hair done from the same barber as Jairam Ramesh.

Sagarika Ghose, CNN-IBN journalist and the second person ever to be given the title Nightingale of India, wondered on twitter “Why has Arundhati not yet understood that Jimmy Choo is an integral part of the modern Indian woman’s wardrobe?”

Hehe! The moment I read about 'doing hair' & 'barber', I knew Jairam Ramesh was coming. ;)

Nice parody!

in other related news, a-roy wants to adopt the kalmadi look. but she says it was never indian to begin with.

kalmadi claimed that his grungy looks are world standard, and its not his duty to clean her hair. mr. bhanot however said that the kashmiris have different standard of hair keeping and so if ms. roy views the kalmadi look as not world class, so be it.

c-bag claims he started the kalmadi look, but no one gave him credit. not in bold letters that is.

Hilarious! Also of exactly the right length to convey the thought without repetition.

@Ketan: Thank you! Am I getting so predictable? :P . . . Hadn't made a Jairam joke in a long time so I didn't want him to feel left out!

@Anon: Hahaha!

@Anirban: Thank you! :) . . . As for the length, that's exactly what I thought too, so cut some material out of it.

@Varsha: Thank you!
