Oh Deepak, where art thou?

I was wondering, Deepak, how’s the carpet business been doing of late? Well, with the economic contraction especially since 4th July 2008, which of course happened to be when the PI Bala disappeared from the public eye, I suppose it must be tough for an average “carpet” dealer such as youself.

Deepak, Deepak, Deepak. What’s going on brother? One would think that given the explosive (no pun intended) revelations made by Bala on what transpired after he left his lawyer Americk Sidhu’s office the day of his first statutory declaration that you, Dinesh and perhaps the rest of your network of “carpet” dealers might be falling over each other to call for your own news conferences and would be conducting your own interviews (perhaps even on the mainstream media, eh?), to clear up the stains on an episode that now reeks like a deeply stained and dirty rug.

Oh, and by the way, I think there’s even a lawyer out there; one Mr. Arunampalam, whom might be able to help you if you want to come out with your own SD. As a matter of fact, I think he’s quite experienced with SDs. Perhaps you’ve heard of him?

In case you have not heard of him, he was the one who “represented” Bala when the latter made his second SD on 4th July retracting his SD from the previous day, remember? Does it ring any bells? Besides, I have a strange feeling you and Dinesh won’t be looking to Americk Sidhu or Manjeet Singh Dhillon to represent you.

Ya la, what’s the point of having some high-powered law firm to take up this matter for you? Given how rough the economic situation is these days, I’m guessing the carpet business must be quite hard hit too, ya? And as you can imagine, lawyers are not cheap! Well, not that this Arunampalam chap comes at a bargain, but perhaps someone you know might just have his mobile number handy, you know. And since he probably never really was Bala’s lawyer to begin with, there couldn’t be any conflict of interest here involved on his part, right? Well, perhaps you better think this one through carefully.

I wonder…maybe you have some really good clients from Putrajaya who love your carpets and who would be willing to advise you on what you and Dinesh ought to do! Now, how about that! Why didn’t I think about this sooner? For all I know, business might have even been brisk since last July! Indeed, it’s always possible that the carpet business has not been as hard hit by the economic woes. After all, you might have even been lucky enough to have benefited from Najib’s “economic stimulus” package. Well, I can tell you not all of us have been so fortunate. Why, I would venture to guess most of us have not had much relief. But then most of us are not in the “carpet” business and not so special as you are.

Anyway, this is all very interesting but I’m sure we’ll hear from you soon, right? And by the way, maybe we’ll run into each other at a bah kut teh place one of these days.

Geronimo's Take : I am just wondering whether Hollywood would be interested in turning this Najib/Rosmah/Razak/Bala story into a movie. It has all the ingredients of a suspense thriller. If Alfred Hitchcock is alive today, this could be his block buster Right now, I can only think of either Ang Lee or John Woo helming the project, wakakaka
