Despite what you may have heard, here are five reasons why the world most definitely could not have ended on 21 December.
1) The Congress did not beat Narendra Modi in 2012 Gujarat Assembly Elections
If the Congress party's odd, inept campaign for Gujarat, featuring none other than "Rs. 3 a kilo of potatoes" Rahul Gandhi, HAD stopped the NaMo juggernaut, only then would I have believed that the end of times had come.
2) Dabbang 2 is going to release shortly
Whatever forces were responsible for the creation of a sequel to Dabbang are obviously far more capable of doing the impossible than ancient gods, prophecies or even rogue planets on a collision course with Earth.
So naturally nothing can stop this film from arriving. Judgement day will have to wait.
3) Indian cricket still has fans
Never mind the stone calendars that stopped at odds dates. The only true sign of 'the end' is when cricket in India has no takers.
Even if there is only one fan left in this nation to whom 11 men could sell bikes, life insurance and soft drinks, the BCCI would ensure the world survives long enough to sell tickets and broadcast rights for at least ten more series.
So there is still lots of time.
4) 21 December is a Friday
Whatever any one says, I cannot believe that any god, any moment of coincidence, any lining up of the stars with any galaxy could be so cruel, so desperate and so cold that it would end the world on the start of the weekend.
The world can only end on a Monday.
5) Rajnikanth still watches over us
Did you know that ghosts are actually caused by Rajnikanth killing villians faster than death can process them.
Rajnikanth's calender goes directly from March 31 to April 2. No one fools Rajnikanth.
Rajnikanth can kill two stones with one bird.
Then last digit of Pi is Rajnikanth. He is the end of all things.
While he is there why do you worry?
Sleep peacefully rascala.
