Like him or not, the world would have been a different place without Arnab Goswami. And his bunch of Newshour guests, who bafflingly enough, come on to his show to have their pride minced and flushed down the drain. The latest in his line-up of willing victims, was of course, Abhijit Mukherjee - he who gulped his foot down with his 'dented and painted women' remark.
How could be possibly get away with it, without a trial by Mr Goswami?
So he was summoned, like expected, to the Newshour debate, where Goswami in some dozen intonations, asked Mukherjee double a dozen times, what 'dented and painted' meant.
Given that, with his own foot stuffed into his mouth, Mukherjee was anyway having trouble answering any question, Goswami just made his day worse by trashing his apology and asking him scowling at him, the way, only he can.
And the whole debate, the crux of which, of course, was Goswami, pulling Mukherjee up, has been condensed into a YouTube mash-up video. A video which turns Goswami's assault on a stuttering, faltering Mukherjee into a rap number. It must be the most awesome thing to have come out of the 'painted and dented' episode!
