Stand-up: I Come From Two Indias by Vir Das

One of my favourite comedians is Vir Das (in addition to Punit Pania, whom I watched live recently, and Varun Grover and a couple others).

I like all of them because their type of humour is not just some funny nonsense story; it’s a weapon to fight against the ugly things in our society; it’s a mirror to show is who we are and why we are the we are!

George Bernard Shaw once said: “When a thing is funny, search it carefully for a hidden truth

Vir Das’ recent short stand-up act “Two Indias” reminded me of that quote.

The act has already created controversy in India and may lead to Vir Das getting dragged in the court, or even be arrested.

The video, which is available on Youtube may also get blocked any time. So while it’s accessible, do watch it and laugh/reflect.
