''Mr. White Tiger,..you have to speak, after all, the country has a right to know, the people need an explanation, the nation wants to know...how did one of you dare kill an Indian citizen that too just at a stone's throw from the iconic India gate...just some kilometers away from the final seat of Indian state--the Rashtrapati Bhawan...Mr. Tiger you will have to explain...nobody can escape responsibility on this show...the nation has a right to know...how dared you? Just some kilometers away from 7, RCR...please speak up Mr. Tiger...."

White Tiger: ( in a trembling voice); Well, Mr. Goswami...see...eh..

.Arnab: No, sir, this will not do, you have to come clean, please speak up...don't keep quite, the nation must know...yes, Mr. Sanjay Jha...you want to come in...Mr. Jha..

Sanjay Jha: Ornob, I just want to make one point very briefly...you see everything has to be put in context...please don;t forget the community of the victim...a conspiracy angle, a hate-politics angle can not be ruled out...you see as they say back home in USA...the white tigers...

Nalin Kohli: Ha...that is the point...USA, white tigers....White House...the Congress wants to spoil the party on the eve of The PM's America visit...that is why Sanjay Jha is underlining the word white...

Sanjay Jha: Mr. Kohli, it is you and your party who talk too much of too many tigers ...Ornob...you see that is my point...they talk of tigers so much and see....the community to which the victim belonged...

Nalin Kohli: Arnab, Dont forget, the tiger is white...white people have been harming our country for so long...I can assure you, had the tiger been saffron, he would not have killed an innocent Indian even a Muslim..after all as the honorable PM told another of your type i.e. Rafiq Zakaria..

Arnab: Mr. Kohli, you better don't mention any other journalist on News-Hour... coming back to you, Mr. Tiger...

Nalin Kohli: White Tiger, as a matter of fact

Sanjay Jha: The BJP as usual is distracting the attention from the real issue

Nalin Kohli: As a matter of fact, you have been doing that for last sixty five years...

Sanjay Jha: Please get your facts right... first of all...

Arnab: Gentlemen, let us listen to Mr. White tiger...

White Tiger: Mr. Goswami, I just wanted to say...

Arnab: Wnated? wanted! What you wanted and what you want Mr. Tiger? Are your wants still unfulfilled? Even after killing a fellow Indian...you still want something...how long will this go on ladies and gentlemen...how long? The nation wants to know tonight on the news-hour...for how long?

Tiger: I just want to say, not to you but to God, Oh God....WHY I am being grilled by these three worthies instead of being killed...
