MUMBAI: Come Friday, every news channel has promised hours of the latest and extensive election result updates by their anchors and arm chair experts. Almost all channels in their excitement to grab eyeballs will begin their coverage from 6 am as the world waits with baited breath to know the mandate of the nation.

As almost everyone is glued to their sets and expecting a common possibility to pour out, we from the team of indiantelevision.com bring you seven such wacky yet possible outcomes that could be contrary to what is expected in the biggest election of all times.

What if…

Rahul Gandhi loses Amethi and Kejriwal wins Varanasi

This will be a fortune teller’s delight and an astrologer’s worst nightmare come true. Narendra Modi won’t have much to worry as he still has another safe seat- Vadodra in Gujarat.  Mr Muffler winning from Varanasi in his enthusiasm could well be seen then, taking a dip in the holy Ganga- not advisable for a man with cold eh?

There is a power cut for hours

Families sitting in front of a TV set. Popcorn and cola being passed around and midway through the coverage as anchors are about to tell you which party is seen gaining the maximum seats… click goes the electricity. One may recall, in June 2012, 20 of India’s 28 states were left without power when a grid had collapsed. So, the situation is a possibility. But on an election result day, people will have much more to complain other than just the sweltering heat.

Exit poll prediction goes wrong

A repeat of 2009, when exit polls had signaled the green light for the NDA cannot be rubbished.  This could also be the death kneel for research agencies already under a cloud for rigging opinion polls. Congress’s spokespersons will be the ones having the last laugh as anchors try to put on some saving grace.

Markets crash…

When exit poll results were shown recently, the markets reacted very strongly to a pro-Modi sentiment. But what if in the overzealous quest of share market, investors and holders, the sensex crashes. Again a possibility that cannot be ruled out.

Jashodaben escorting Modi on his victory rally!

A perfect ending to a troubled marriage as seen in Bollywood movies, Jashodaben escorting her star husband could silence many of his critics. It would also bring tears to many Indian voters except Rahul baba who now would face pressure of finding a bride as if the electoral drubbing wasn’t enough. Rahul Ka Swayamwar -maybe?

NDA unable to get 272

What if the NDA is unable to get to the magic figure? Yes it could reach out to form alliances with regional players. What could make this situation scarier is regional players offering their support on the condition that Modi is not the PM. Rajnath Singh could then be tipped to be the PM, in this Game of Thrones.

EC declares 16 May as ‘Dry day’

Celebrations will be cut short if this comes true! All that one would be left to celebrate with are the kilos of ladoos that the BJP has ordered for. With no booze to celebrate, India would be instantly wrapped by the “Gujarat model” and be a dry country. Amul milk and cookies may be?

All celebrities winning the elections, Rakhi Sawant too!

With many celebrities trying their luck at the ballot, they winning the same would add the much need glamour to our non-glitzy parliament. Whether they provide deep insight or pure entertainment is one’s wild guess. And, Rakhi Sawant in parliament? Oh jeejus!
