S. M. Krishna's Speecho Portuguesa

A lot has been written and tweeted about our Minister for External Affairs, S. M. Krishna's reading of the Portugal Foreign Minister's speech instead of the Indian one at a recent United Nation's meeting. Most in fact mentioned he went on for 5 minutes before realising it was the wrong speech. Well, as in most cases there was some fire behind the smoke, however it wasn't as bad (5 minutes) as it was made out to be!

Here's a video of the gaffe, [source and]

Well, it has been blown way out of proportion. Having said that - by God it is funny !!!
The best tweet about it from someone was that SM Krishna is the New Chatur Ramalingam :D

After running the video, I guess there seems to be a change in camera at 00:31. Maybe he continued reading the script for a while.
Also, the way SMK says "you know" is hilarious.
