The News Minute| November 3, 2014| 6.00 pm IST So, let's see what this is all about. Siddharth “Kingfisher” Mallya has a talk show on YouTube where he does what he knows best to do – flaunt his wealth and talk about himself.  Sitting on a red chair, dressed in a black track-suit, in the four-plus minute show, he comes across as funny to some (see comments below video) ludicrous to others and pathetic to others – all definitions he must truly enjoy.  Here’s the problem – he answers questions sent to him via twitter and Facebook. So the selection of stupidity and or humour is entirely his. So Sid Mallya answers questions a range of questions from how his his rod is doing, and his d*** is, to why he watched cartoons. Where the show is truly galling is when someone tweets to him and says, Shameless creature... Pay ur kingfisher debts... to this Sid Mallya replies... â€œâ€¦sure, why not…while I’m still at it, shall I also try and stop the ISIS, find a cure to cancer and several other things over which I have no control.”  Yes, it’s ugly, Mr. Mallya, not, not you. But your callous disregard for people who have suffered, someone who died... They toiled so you can do your show. People who worked from dawn to dusk so you could do your calendar thing. If you want to be funny, be so, but if you want to be sarcastic about debts and death that has been incurred by Kingfisher (the wife of one employee who lost his job committed suicide), then there’s a word for it. In the interest of decency, we’ll let you guess what that word is.
