Remember that scene in How I met your mother where Barney is dared to get laid in a pair of overhauls? And he goes Challenge Accepted? I have reason to believe that Mr. Nehru was perhaps the inspiration behind it and behind the conception Barney Stinson, in general. Cause if you can get laid in a Gandhi topi, you can do anything. And I mean literally anything, Like taking-down-the-empire-anything. Not to mention, Nehru made suiting up cool way before Indians could even imagine.
It’s hard not to get laid when your wingman looks like Gandhi too. Women must go “Aww!” when he says “This is my anorexic friend. I’m just helping him through some stuff. He used to be a lawyer. Should’ve seen him in his prime. Took South Africa by storm!”
Jawaharlal Nehru walks into a bar, walks up to a girl:
“Wanna go back to my place?”
“Well, what do you do?” she asked.
“Well, by day I’m a politician. But at night I fight crime. At the stroke of midnight, when the world sleeps We’ll be making our tryst with destiny. Moments like these come rarely in history.” He winks, extracts the rose from his cleavage, inserts it into hers and reiterates “So, wanna go back to my place?”
With a pick up line like that, he rarely ever failed. As is amply illustrated below.
Leaning forward, Smiling excessively. flirting 101. Oh, he had a playbook alright.
And he was getting some, even when most men his age had retired to a life of private masturbation.
To sum up, Mr. Nehru was the first, if not most Legen…wait for it…DARY man of Free India. And an inspiration to young men everywhere.
