My Hero to Zero- Muammar Gaddafi!

The moment i think Gaddafi, i simply can't repress my knowing smile. Of course, maniacs remember each other so well, don't we? When i further think about him, the smile burgeons into imminent laughter- reminiscing his 'style' statements, his various 'phobias'. What a man! The longest reigning dictator who must have been chained in a psychiatric asylum long ago. Libya and Gaddafi are inseparable, so much that you think they were man and wife! Libya's synonym is Gaddafi and Gaddafi's synonym is 'mad man'. Now it is so ironical that the 'mad man' is made a 'bad man' by a bunch of cyber activists and Western media men. Shame on them! Can they hide the charisma of our Hero? Gaddafi climbed to power at the age of 27, when most of us would have been struggling with our love lives. Which President calls himself- " Brother Leader and Guide of the Revolution"? Our Brother Gaddafi does! What if blood soaks the streets of Tripoli, my hero will fight it till the end. He is a la Tom Cruise in khakhis, how many ever missiles you aim at him, he goes unscathed- He is a Mission 'Impossible!'

For those who don't know the history of my Hero, i urge enrol yourselves in a Libyan school right now! King Idris must now be laughing his head off from Hell, ( Well, i can say he is there because our Hero put him there!) seeing history, his-story being repeated. Gaddafi overthrew King Idris in 1969 and now tables are turned against him. But being a Hero, he simply refuses to budge. I rather grew fond of his trendy fashion statements, his Phil Spector styled hairdo and Snoopy resemblance weirdo impressed me. He seems a man encased in a time capsule, still in 60's hairstyle, 60's dresses and undying love for Idi Amin. Here are few snapshots of my favorite Hero-

Duh! He forgot to get off his bath robe and hey, the woman in the backdrop- his Body Guard!

Apparently my Hero likes drapes better than suits and ties! Drapery, stolen from Hotel Suite:)
 


Two like minded gentlemen, look at Brother's pin ups;)
  Does he copy any Hollywood Hero like our Bollywood men? No! Gaddafi has his own eccentric style, color and grace which the entire Hollywood Bollywood pack lacks. President Obama looks a little bit lost and out of focus when he is near my Hero and Berlusconi simply adores the General...slurp...slurp...Oh Silvio, i thought you date 19 year olds...No other leader of our era has the kharisma oh my, typo, its charisma, the charm and the sense of fashion Gaddafi has. May be after retirement  ( or death) from the Brother's post, Gaddafi can find ramp walk easy cake walk. The likes of Armani, Versace, D&G, Lacroix- all please rope him in for an innings in Paris Fashion Show. He is a sure crowd puller. Or may be i think, my Hero can start his own line of Designer clothing, of course named L&G- Libya and Gaddafi!

Gaddafi's phobias are world reknown, now made public for umpteenth time by Wikileaks. He likes to pitch tent in hotel rooms, he takes his prized camel everywhere he goes , he refuses rooms in top floors of hotels, refuses to let his jet fly over water, his camel suffers from jet lags, he never embarks on an overseas trip without his Ukrainian Nurse ( how dare you think it could be a male nurse?) She is a femme fatale, of course! And his female bodyguards force of 100 luscious and vicious women is something Berlusconi might already be thinking of taking over;) Let it all be, what i am worried about my Hero is- Will he go to Hell down below when he dies? He hates heights and apparently The Heaven Above! Or Hero will order God to bring Heaven below or fight Him till He budges! Go Brother, GOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

  4. Dear amonymous, thanks for your comment first. As for the oil price hike, it has been only marginal after Arab unrest, from 100 USD to 120 USD. Even before the unrest it has been steadily climbing. So dont owe it to the unrest. As for Murli Deora & Co, they only need a needle tip to blow it as a tsunami;)

  5. nive...there is always a second side of a coin....leave all those minor things like camel, female body guards etc etc.there are many more things abt gadaffi.in a uni polor geo political scenario (read US hegemony) gadaffi was one of the few head of states who stood against US onslaught.he didnot buckle under any sort of western pressure and more over he didnot make libya a banana republic.(you can write a next article what a banana republic is).he did not allow libya to become any central american country(read US colony).
    i strongly suspect CIA hand in the ongoing libyan crisis.

  6. Thanks for your comment Ramnath. I agree Gaddafi was defiant in submitting to US, but still Libya is indeed a banana Republic, much of what is happening there does not simply reach people in India. But in Middle East, not a day passes without mention of him and his eccentricities, one such incident being his car ride in Libya where he threw currency notes on roads for his countrymen to pick up, saying he was offering state aid to the poor directly! As for CIA's hand in recent proests, i dont think so, the uprising is just a wave that has swept Arab world after Tunisia and Egypt. Even with so much oil money, nothing much has been done for the common man in Libya, many towns surrounding Benghazi lack even basic infrastructure. Ruling a country with iron hand for 40 years and ruthlessly killing hundreds in the name of suppressing civil war is not what we call justification.

  7. I was not interested much in the middle eastern political situation until the Egyptian revolution recently. It is interesting that dictators have been ruling for so long... But what will all this result in? Will these dictators go or will they be replaced by others?

  8. hi..i am not an admirer of gadaffi and i dont agree the way in which he governs libya. infact i think democracy is best form of govt inspite of its many drawbacks b cos of TINA (there is no better alternative) factor. jus i wanted to point out that gadaffi stood against US hegemony.
    regards.

  9. Dear Meerasrajan, Thanks for your comment. Yes, indeed there are loads of dictatirs and Kings in this part of the world, it would be better if they are replaced by functioning democracy. Egypt is heading to democracy or it seems to be, Tunisia is rid of Ben Ali, but its again the army in control now. Unless democracy is restored fast, the revolutions will become useless:(
