Deal with it

Most people he had spoken to were convinced that it was a good deal.. not that he had required a second opinion, because, as usual, he had made his own decision after much thought.. but this time it wasnt just another professional, rational decision, there was a lot of emotion involved in it too..
He had wanted the particular computer ever since he saw it in his colleague's hands.. it added to his colleague's personality.. the nasty ones would even venture to say that it gave him a new personality, which was not exactly in a good state till then.. it somehow gave him a new found confidence, and truth be told, he was quite convinced that the comp had a major hand in taking his colleague to new heights..
And thats how he had decided to go shopping for the computer.. in fact, he didnt have to, because like most deals these days, people came to him asking him if he wanted it.. he pretended to think about it for a long time, because he wanted to get the best deal possible.. and by a stroke of luck, his colleague announced that he had decided to move on, and he was giving off his comp...
though he was initially not very comfortable with the idea of a second hand comp, specially since it had a voice recognition system, the deal convinced him otherwise, and the tech support guys assured him that there would be no problem, and thats how he had ended up with this special comp..
and now, within a few days, it was creating problems.. it refused to adapt to a certain inflection in his speech... the worst part was that it was something that was very dear to him, and he didnt want to make any efforts to change it..but he had already signed the deal and there was no goingback, but it really wouldnt have the SRK effect, if he didnt say c-c-c-computerji in K-k-kaun Banega
C-c-crorepati!!!!
until next time samay samaapt..

His colleague announced???! He flicked the comp because he'd been eyeing for so long, and he did it so deftly pulling a few fine gossamer political strings, that no one quite knew. Certainly not his old friend who was left shakken and wondering err "who moved the cheese". bah.

Good one, with a 'hakla' hosting the show they should extend the show duration.

Happy New Year !

Suspense....a story which had a twist that lead it to be a satire!! good work!!!
It is difficult to emulate or outdo if the original was perfect and popular, Poor SRK!!
