When it comes to law, India lacks a lot behind any other developed or developing countries. We do not take ur law seriously, but ever thought, what if the Indian Constitution was a parody? What if we see our law and order in a funnier and in a light-hearted way? Confused? We are talking about the most trending parody account on Facebook of our own Bombay High Court named Bombay Higher Court. The anonymous admin of the page shares hilarious laws, which if applied in ur constitution, India would certainly be the best and funniest country to live in. We had an email-interaction with parody account on Facebook- Bombay Higher Court and asked the admin some serious and curious questions. Have a look:
1. So, Bombay Higher Court, tell us something about the page. How did you start?
Well, it’s a parody page of the Bombay High Court wherein I post verdicts which are funny, relatable and based on experiences. I created this page on 3rd February and basically, I started posting stuff. However, on 10th Feb, this post ‘Students not from NM College found sharing attendance memes will be prosecuted’ just went viral! It had over 300 shares and reached more than 57,000 people. Now, basically my page just had 80likes back then and anyways 300+ shares is a big thing even for pages with more than 100,000 likes. That’s when I felt that the page can really do well.
2. Why only target Indian law?
We see a lot of parody pages on social media. However the idea of targeting Government Institutions is just a recent one. Basically people relate more with the name Bombay Higher Court and when the verdicts which are based on nothing but fun facts and perhaps the reality, the interaction of fans is noteworthy.
3. Do you hate HR college?
No!! Perhaps the interaction of HR students on the posts related to HR College is really too good. Well, my posts on HR College are not exaggerated much as they might seem, but just a representation of facts in a way likeable to the fans. Leverage in terms of attendance is surely student friendly but the problem arises because of the fact that it’s not the same for all colleges, which it should be.
4. Do you think Indian law needs some changes?
Well, the answer might run into pages. Thus restricting myself, I would say that it does need changes, a lot of them, but my page is basically concerned about the changes concerning the colleges, the students which I really think is the need of the hour. If the University has its ordinances, it shall make sure that every college complies with it and not just a few. It’s that simple.
5. Do you follow common laws, like the traffic rules, etc?
6. If you’d have the liberty to mould the constitution as per you, would you literally apply all your self-made laws in it?
Definitely! As mentioned earlier, restricting myself to Colleges, I would make sure that all Colleges are at par where things like attendance, difficulty level of papers and such other things are concerned. Of late a common paper for all Colleges is going to come up which is exactly what was needed. Basically this would eliminate practices like giving important questions for exams to the students, asking questions only from that and so on. It basically degrades the quality of education. And as you might have seen, I appreciate Colleges who do not compromise on the quality of education through my posts! It’s really a good thing to do.
7. Has anyone opposed you for running a page on such topic?
Not opposed the page as such, but definitely “Salman Bhai” fans deserve a special mention here! Basically they don’t like the posts against Salman Khan. Some are abusive, while some just unlike the page.
8. Any crazy fan inbox or story you’d like to share?
Well, I do get messages from the fans saying that they really enjoy the verdicts and that they are in treat of some good humour, which is indeed motivating. The funny thing is that a friend of mine messaged the page and he’s completely unaware that I run the page. No crazy fan story as such, perhaps because of my anonymity. But instances wherein people message you your own jokes, being clueless that you’re the admin are noteworthy.
9. Who inspires you to come up with such humour?
Well, everything is just happening around you! The facts and details make the posts funny. Basically I can share my views about anything and everything which is, most of the time a general view presented in a sarcastic way. The interaction that people have shown and basically entertaining people by mere 2-3 lines inspires me to come up with better stuff. No paid advertisements, but growing through quality content is the motto.
10. Why have you kept yourself anonymous?
What’s in a name? I like the anonymity, the fact that you’re a stranger making strangers laugh. You aren’t forcing them to laugh – it’s involuntary, and that’s when they give the most honest response.
11. Any message for the viewers of Tell Me Nothing?
