Gokul Chandran, a retired lieutenant commander of the Indian Navy and political analyst, recently did the impossible: He got Navika Kumar raging! Usually, Kumar, the Group Editor of Times Network, is the one who gets the best of the people around her and forces them to react in ways they had never expected, but the tables have turned this time.
This is how it happened.
Chandran, who was on the Times Now panel, was talking about how Shudras aren't just a caste, and that historically, they were invaders. This set Kumar off. She responded by saying, "Oh, so we are invaders? With your permission, can we live in this country, sir? Since you are the boss and the owner of this country, can we live in this country?"
"No, you cannot," replied Chandran sarcastically, directing his response specifically to Kumar. He also added, "Yes, you should go wherever you want."
The exchange was hilarious, and we cannot stop playing it on repeat. It was uploaded by Chandran himself on Twitter. He captioned the 50-second clip: "What wrong did I say?"
