Coming back to SRK, it did occur to me also that the Newyork (USA) episode of his detention could have something to do with his forthcoming film ' My name is Khan'. Timing and emphasis on word Khan, if coincidental, was a good coincidence for the upcoming film. Watching reactions of SRK on TV on Amar Singh voicing what many had felt, I wondered what had hit SRK to lose his decency while reacting. He has been at too high a pedestal to react the way he did.

14/05/09 The elections are over(india). Projections based on exit polls and analysis are out. A country of 100 crores electing its government for a long period of 5 years. Must have been a serious exercise one would think. Full of issues and meaningful deliberations nation wide. But were there any issues? Any purposeful discussions/deliberations? I can't think of one, though media and its wizards were busy round the clock. In telling us who was calling whom names and the resulting reactions and counter reactions. In projecting individuals since they happened to have been born in a particular family as our future leaders. Telling us what they ate and how they wore their clothes, their lips and noses indicated what. Even the PM of 100 crores couldn't find virtue in any one other than one born in that particular family to be another future PM! What a great country and what a great people! No issues, no positive line of action from any political outfit other than telling us what was wrong with others. No botheration
i) how justice could be expedited. Justice delayed is justice denied. So no justice.
ii) Everyone tells us out of one Rupee of public money spent, only a few paisa in single digit reach public. The leaders have been telling us so for last many decades. But any action or will to correct it? No. We must continue to vote them , but, so that they would be able do something if they so desire.
iii) Why should capable youth of a civilised society be without work?
iv) Why wealth should concentrate among a few and majority of countrymen languish in poverty?
A few which would readily come to any mind but these are not any issues of any importance either for the media or the leaders. A great democracy! Indian democracy needs redefinition. Should we call it 'Government of the morons, by machinations, for money'?

Writing is on the wall. A fragmented and disunited India. Probably that is what we deserve. By distance, no statesman is in sight. Only humanbeings hankering after power and 100 crore bowing to supremacy of one or two just because they are descendants of a particular person. What makes so many highly learned people accept persons who are as ordinary as one can be as their leader? It baffles me but then I must be a fool not to understand.
Whatever I am saying or will say, everything gets explained in one or two small paras my father wrote and I reproduced in the beginning of this blog. Referring back to that at intervals will help the readers. Thanks for the day.
