We Indians have an expertise in making random stories out of a rumor, sensationalizing it, and making it look so realistic that the person almost turns the culprit. And while somebody is trying to stand up for the rights, we make sure he/she is dragged so low to the level that it proves to be a roller coaster fun for us. Another bug bite in Indians is, “Beta, kisiko mat bolna, (chaar) log kya sochenge”, although there are more than chaar involved in the skill mentioned in the first line. Duplicity takes a peak, when we don’t allow anybody standing up for their rights to move ahead, or rather help, but talk about other biggy-wiggies that we do, which are obviously 95% exaggerated.
Coming to the point, as we all know that Preity Zinta has pressed molestation charges against Ness Wadia, who happens to be her ex-boyfriend. Going through the comments on facebook, on a certain post by a reporting page, it made my head drool into shame looking at the kind of mentality we Indians possess. One such man commented, “he was an ex lover, why can he not do anything to her?”, for God’s sake, even if it’s your friend, your family member, your brother or your father, nobody in the world has the right to touch your f***ing body! Get that straight you shrink-minded Indians! This reminds me of our politicians who made their “intellectual” comments on various rape cases.Read more
Funny country, ours is. We love to hate. We are so fed up of our own miserable problems and pathetic administration that we just need a media-created effigy to direct our hatred and burn. Beyond logic. Beyond rationale. Beyond the levels of tolerance and sophistication that one can expect from a country that boasts itself as the world’s largest democracy.
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal humbled in the recent national elections. Just four members from his party got into parliament and Kejriwal himself lost by a mammoth 337,000 votes at Varanasi to the next PM of India, Narendra Modi. Honestly speaking, it was a stupid move by AK to challenge Modi at Varanasi. He could’ve contested from his home constituency, won his seat in parliament and actually made a difference from inside over the next 5 years. Isn’t that why he split from Anna Hazare in the first place??Read more
