    Guilty or not guilty? An argument in between Salman’s fan and media fed Cynics

    Posted by on 5:17 pm in The India I know | 0 comments

    Few months back, when I told one of my fellow mango man “Salman Bhai is a victim of trial by media”. He laughed his ass off. He was sure Bhai ran his car over few pedestrians sleeping on pavement in inebriated state. I told him “Dude. Bhai does not play negative character. He is the only one who has learned to “Being Human” even after so many years in industry. All this drama is one big nautanki to malign image of our bajrangi bhaijan. (God bless his “secular” soul).” To strengthen my argument I added “He is a soft-hearted man whose one screen name “Prem” reflects how lovable, compassionate he is”. He retaliated “There is another one by the name of Prem in Bollywood and his name is Prem Chopra”. Fucking Morons. They cannot love Bhai. Last week the salman khan hit and run case took an interesting turn. He was pronounced not guilty on all counts by Bombay High Court. We the “Pankhas (fans)” of bhai stood vindicated. I called my “media lover” friend and gave him nicely on phone. I told him “Bhai. I told you. Our Bhai is innocent. You just did not see beyond the obvious. You have to give him some credit for handling himself so elegantly despite not being guilty throughout the case” Now this friend of mine was still not convinced. He said “Dost. Everything is on sale. Even the Judiciary”. He gave me example of Jayalalitha trial. He said the day they pronounced her not guilty, he knew something was fishy”. Not to give up so easily on my case, I asked him. “Let’s assume, he was driving the car. What the hell were these buggers doing on pavements? Are pavements for sleeping or walking?” Before he could counter attack me the obvious question “Are pavements for driving or walking?” I attacked him with full arsenal. “I know you will try to trick me into believing our beloved bhai was at fault. No he was not at fault. You all need to get a reality check. The large “hearted” Bhai was ordered by court to offer a compensation few years back to the victims of this so-called “accident”. Irrespective of the decision of court, He has promised to help them.” I took a break. This was his turn. He replied “And look how he has contributed. With open arms and open pockets, your Bhai has contributed gracefully to his legal team, PR Team and fans. Thank God, Judiciary cannot be corrupted and questioned else he would have given generously to them too.” I said “Nevertheless, Judiciary has ensured “Truth stands tall””. He sniggered. Now I was angry. I have been a Salman fan since “mainey Pyaar kiya”. How can I let this stupid guy win an argument over my bhai’s innocence? To hell with the so-called “Victims” Hundred die every day in road accident in India. Why only pick sallu bhai? He said with a pinch of sarcasm “Salman was not driving the car involved in hit and run case. Don’t you ask me if not salman, who was driving this car? Didn’t you read the news? This was a driver less car driven by a ghost”. This guy was spoon fed by media. I hate this new internet news generation. I thought....

    The Creative thinking of Corporates and Politicians during Chennai Floods is Applaudable

    The Creative thinking of Corporates and Politicians during Chennai Floods is Applaudable

    After Uttarakhand floods, I had high hopes from our Government to carry out strict measures which will make sure such incidents do not happen in future. Hope turned into Cynicism when I read news of our honest government officers trying creative measures after Uttarakhand Floods to party on tax payer’s money. This time our government machinery is yet to stoop to this level. Don’t be so overly optimistic. We are still in middle of floods, so they have a lot of time to gallop all the money received for rehabilitation. Anyways, this article is not to praise the unsung “heroes” of Uttarakhand Floods or criticize the government machinery in their failure to bring the situation under control. This article is dedicated to the innovative thinking done by Corporates and Politicians during Chennai flood to help the distressed population. How corporate world has come forward to help during these tough times is no secret. Especially, the new age startups who are themselves flooded with funding from VCs.  They have shown exceptional marketing….Oops, innovative skills to help the despaired Population of Chennai. First among the innovative lot is Zomato. The online food directory website (India’s answer to yelp) decided to offer a meal free for every meal ordered via their platform. The scheme was awesome. This was a company doing philanthropy in a unique way. Now here was a company offering extra food for every food offered through their platform. This noble act gave “Food for Thought” to critiques. Like mean cynics, they blasted Zomato for indirectly selling through their website at 50% off. CEO of Tomato in his inimitable style passed a stern message to critiques “Fuck the haters”. You are right Mr. Deepinder Goyal. We all should fuck off as we questioned your company’s noble act of providing food free with food orders through your website. An Awesome Idea criticized without any base. These buggers cannot even digest an iota of charity from young entrepreneurs like you. What an idea sir ji! Round of applause for you. I only have one question for you. if the intentions were so noble, why did the offer expire before we could really pass on some benefit to the population of Chennai? Please do not ask me to “Fuck Off”. I am just a Mango Man trying to simplify the complicated world around me. Next in line was “Uber” which promised rides on a day when the city was advised to not to come out of their home. (read : As Chennai sinks, the difference between genuine charity and corporate storytelling becomes clear) I am sure this is another Noble act from another noble company. Unfortunately, my mind infected with a disease called as Cynicism refuses to see beyond the obvious. The investors, who has invested full heartedly in these two ventures should be proud of their investments. At the end of day, the “out of box” thinking is sure to get them good returns on their investments. Next in line are our politicians. Now why am I even writing about them? 🙂 Well. No article on The Mango Man’s Blog is complete without mention of our karta-dhartas of this country. As a matter of fact, no news in this country is complete without them being a part of it. What is the first...

    Pahlaj Nihalani or Aamir Khan. Who is the real victim of Intolerance in India?

    Posted by on 11:04 am in Social Issues | 0 comments

    Pahlaj Nihalani or Aamir Khan. Who is the real victim of Intolerance in India?

    Pahlaj Nihalani is the torch-bearer for all concerned citizens, who want this country to do away with the evils of western culture. Aamir khan, the super star does not need an introduction. He is “The Perfectionist” of Bollywood known for giving 100 cr+ hits. Both of them have been in news off lately for a common topic “Growing Intolerance in India”. Aamir khan provoked the ire of so-called secular brigade of this country, when he raised his voice against the growing intolerance in India. Pahlaj Nihalani, the Chief of Censor Board of India was butt of jokes for his supposedly “pure” act of cutting kissing scenes in latest “British” Bond Flick “Specter”. How the public reacted to his positive intentions definitely represent the growing intolerance in India. The group of people attacking both are like chalk and cheese. I will segregate them as Secular and Sickular. The ones attacking Aamir khan are from the secular brigade. They feel he has overstepped his right to freedom of speech and expression by tarnishing the image of a country that has made him brand ambassador of Incredible India. Those who attacked Pahlaj Nihalani are from the sickular brigade. They think it’s their birth right to watch vulgar stuff in movies. Question every credible move of a man who is working hard to purify Indian cinema of the Vulgarity evil. I am still dicey on which party I belong to 🙂 . Does than make me a sickular? Well no. I have spoken against Aamir Khan in past too. Does that make me a secular? Whatever. I am the mango man. I choose sides based on the merit of case. This time I am with our Censor Board chief. Few days back, I shared few tweets of fellow mango men mocking Pahlaj sir on social media. Believe me, I am very sorry to have made fun of this great man. My perception has changed after reading on some of the movies produced by him. Today, I understand how he does not want us to do the mistakes he did in his youth. The other day a friend mentioned a movie Andaz, produced by the great man. The movie features our “Jhakaas” Anil Kapoor singing “Khada hai. Khada hai” to Juhi Chawala. Then there was a song with lines Main Maal Gaadi Tu Dhakka laga. I went back home and searched about the man, who has changed the face of Indian Cinema for good using his super powers as the censor board chief. This is what I found : Would Pahlaj Nihalani approve of these today? I have a message for all of you intolerant idiots harassing Mr. Nihalani. He is someone who mistakes as a young man .We all did these mistakes. (“Jawani ki bhool” as it is famously said in Bollywood). Today, he is a changed man. He is someone who is like a fatherly figure to all of us. All he wants us to be is to teach us from his mistakes. He wants us to be good kids, who grow up to be sanskari. The growing intolerance against the steps taken by Mr. Nihalani are unwarranted because he knows what a kiss of more than 20 second is capable of. He knows what these firangs are up to. Even after 60+ years...

    What does return of Lalu mean for Bihar?

    Posted by on 3:59 pm in Politically Incorrect | 0 comments

    What does return of Lalu mean for Bihar?

    Since the swearing ceremony of Nitish Kumar’s cabinet, the country has been abuzz with how Lalu “Fodder” Yadav has succeeded in leaving his stamp on the new cabinet. Everywhere I go, the chai par political charcha post Bihar Elections is dominated by only one topic. How the “overqualified” sons of Lalu will handle the important portfolios handed to them in a platter? Add to this. Are the dark days of Bihar back? Will the kidnapping extortion business prosper again? How will Nitish Kumar tame the baap ka laadla “Deputy CM” and Maa ka ladla “Younger” son of Lalu Yadav? Most importantly, Can Nitish Kumar work with the same zeal and energy of before? The hope with which I pitched for Nitish Kumar has made way for panic. If I think again, this marriage of mahagathbandhan is a political suicide. BJP supporters can cheer now. They can question my wit of throwing my weight behind a “mahagathbandhan”. But before the guns are out for my head, here is my logic for supporting this alliance. I had a deep respect for Nitish Kumar. I still do. The way he turned Bihar into a progressive state after “Jungle Raj” of lalu is commendable. Unfortunately, he has tamely given into demands of Lalu ji. Since Bihar will un-officially be ruled by “The extended Lalu Yadav” family, here is what the state can now see as immediate-gradual changes (depending on priority): Fodder’s price will hit the roof. You do not have to connect the dots for this. Fodder’s price is bound to increase with the entry of Lalu Yadav. The trend of Selfie will be replaced by Hugg-mes. The energy with which Lalu Yadav has hugged every political ally is worth noticing (Is kejriwal an ally? Didn’t he question Lalu’s honesty after fodder scam? Anyways all is forgiven in love and politics. AAPtards need not troll me for this innocuous statement). Time for Modi’s Selfie campaign to move aside and make way for Lalu’s Hug-me trend. Bihar Cricket will have Deputy CM as the President, Captain, coach and manager. To understand this trend, you have to look at the struggle our 9th pass new Deputy CM of Bihar has had to make in his not so glorious cricketing career. This new place can be his shot to glory. He can order the defunct Bihar Cricket Association to give him all posts. Extortion and Kidnapping Business will see a surge. I know we are without Papu Yadav this time in government. God bless his political career. The poor guy has not won a single seat in these elections. Still, the rowdies of state need not loose heart. Where there is a will, there is a way. I am giving maximum 6 months before the “rich” of the land start disappearing. Education and age will now not be linked to any job selection criteria. Government will officially remove education and age as a criteria for getting jobs in Bihar. The 2nd and 3rd important ministers in government are toddlers of politics. They also happen to be not so qualified. They have shown us the way to look into “dynasty”…Oops I meant “Talent” as the criteria for sitting on a post. Age and Qualification is old school. High time government learns a thing or two from them, Mark...

    Making sense of Dalai Lama ‘s statement on Bihar Elections

    Making sense of Dalai Lama ‘s statement on Bihar Elections

    The “Holy” Dalai Lama has stirred up a hornet’s nest with his statement “Bihar Results Show Majority of Hindus Still Believe in Peace”. Incidentally, the statement has not gone down with the minority of Hindus who still do not believe in peace. The Holy statement by the great man can be interpreted in many ways. Till date, I have only tried to make sense of statements and news of unholy politicians. This is the first time, I will try and demystify the statement of a holy man. Since the “Holy” Lama emphasized on Majority, Hindus, Believe and peace. I will read in between the lines based on these words. First and foremost, he did not want to send feelers to the Chinese to let him go back to Tibet. China is too adamant to allow the holy man back in his holy land, Tibet. So we will put this interpretation to rest. Holy Men are said to have their way with words. Having read few Holy Scriptures, I can assure you there is a lot said in between the lines. One interpretation I can make of his statement is, him passing a message to the new breed of aggressive Buddhists in Myanmar and Sri Lanka. He was probably asking them to follow the path of Buddha and refrain from violence against Rohingyas in Myanmar and Tamils in Sri Lanka. Unfortunately, the platform he used to pass the message was a wrong one. You don’t reflect the mood of nation with an obvious statement just after elections. He unintentionally rubbed the party which lost elections the wrong way. BJP and its followers already embattling the growing voice against rising intolerance in country are surprised with these comments from Dalai Lama. The twitter “keyboard” warriors from the right wing party (Bhakts) have already decided the travel itinerary of Dalai Lama for next few years. They have graciously decided to send him to Pak-istan, the new travel destination for everyone who has an opinion against BJP. Since I have the luxury of reading in between the lines of holy man. Here is another theory on what he meant by this statement. This one is a straightforward one. What if he actually passed a message on the growing intolerance in India? What if he seriously wanted to pass a message to the new angry Hindus, who supposedly wear their religion on their sleeves? Should we ask Noble prize committee to take back his noble prize and give it to Ramdev, who did not get the esteemed prize because he was black (a theory invented by him)? Or will sending him to Pakistan be a step enough to send a message to every writer, historian, film personality, etc trying to pass a message to government? These comments have become an invaluable part to my ever growing list of lessons I learned from Bihar elections. – The “Resurgent” Mango Man Related Post Pahlaj Nihalani or Aamir Khan.

    Three takeaways from Bihar Assembly Elections 2015

    Posted by on 7:42 pm in Politically Incorrect | 0 comments

    Two months back I wrote an article on the alliances forged in Bihar to fight elections. My assessment was based on how political parties, who are like chalk and cheese have come together to form alliances (read : Bihar Elections : A story of Hawabaaz, Kaamkaji and Confused Voters). Thereby, leaving the voters of state confused. I predicted how Nitish Kumar is confusing his loyal voter base by joining hands with Lalu Yadav. After the results, I can proudly say “I should stop predicting election results. The egg which landed on my face after these election results does not make for a good sight 🙂 “. Not only has the alliance of Nitish and Lalu won the elections by a huge margin, they have given a life line to the non-existent Congress in Bihar. The political dynamics of country will change from today. By losing Bihar elections, BJP has missed a golden opportunity to get a majority in Rajya Sabha. This means, congress will block more bills without any reason (like BJP did when it was in opposition) in next session of parliament. Since BJP cannot dream of majority in the upper house of parliament, you and I can kiss goodbye to any bill passing in next session of parliament. So much for development and maturity from our political parties. Huh! Getting back to Bihar Election. The Election saw some high voltage drama in between the BJP and Nitish Kumar Alliance. Any good student of politics can learn A to Z of politics by just observing this election. There was so much to learn from our political masters. I can write a book by the name “Bihar Elections: A story of Hawabaaz, Kaamkaji and smart Voters” covering Bihar’s political tamasha. Well! I would leave this to the smart journalists covering the elections. I did learn few good lessons from these elections. Here are my takeaways from Bihar elections 2015: The size of fight in Dog is more relevant than the size of dog in a fight: After New Delhi election fiasco (where BJP was decimated by AAP), I am sure BJP did not want to leave any stone unturned to win Bihar. They had a campaign supported by technology, ground staff, helicopters, politicians, movie stars, etc, etc. You name it they had it. The PM of country personally visited Bihar so many times that sometimes you wondered, if he was the CM candidate from BJP for this election. By the way, can they do this? How about amending constitution to allow a person to be a PM and CM both. This was BJP can openly declare Mr. Modi as the CM candidate for every state elections J Despite all this huge expenditure and planning, they failed to convince voters. The showbiz failed to bedazzle the voters of Bihar. This is the second time BJP has bitten dust even after splurging a huge amount of money on their campaigns, The writing on wall is everyone to see. Extravagant campaigns do not win you elections. Religion based politics sucks I don’t know if crackers were burst in Pakistan today, as predicted by Amit shah but I am sure Diwali has come early for Congress, JD(U), RJD. Incidentally, none of them have an office in Pakistan 🙂 . Did BJP go overboard...

    Crackers will be burst in Pakistan if BJP loses in Bihar: Making sense of Amit Shah’s statement

    Crackers will be burst in Pakistan if BJP loses in Bihar: Making sense of Amit Shah’s statement

    Amit Bhai is a man of few words. Unlike his predecessors, he does not believe in shouting at pitch of his voice to be heard. He believes in more action and less words. Results of his style were very well reflected in last Lok Sabha Elections. Precisely speaking, he is the man of hour. Yesterday in his inimitable style Amit Bhai said “If BJP loses in Bihar Crackers will be burst in Pakistan” in a rally in Bihar. This statement has left everyone in tizzy. What he meant by the statement is still being debated and researched upon. As I mentioned, he is a man of few words. So every time the lesser he speaks, the more complicated it gets for researchers like us to comprehend the meaning of his statement. Research scholars (stop smiling) like me were awake through out the night yesterday to demystify his statement. I am sure he had all the right intentions while making his statement. Now “Crackers” “Noise” and “Bombs” are 3 words which are so much in line with what Pakistan is witnessing today. I am sure the BJP party chief just passed a stern message to Pakistan “Even if BJP loses in Bihar, you cannot consider us week.” So don’t go around bursting crackers. BJP is just a state like Delhi (minus Kejriwal). Or He probably wanted to pass a message to our Pakistani brothers before 1947 that your bombs are nothing more than crackers to us. You can back off from threatening us with your nuclear bombs. This is what I think from the angle of “Pakistan” used in his statement. An insider told me, he was actually taking a pot shots at Nitish Kumar for being soft on terrorism. I rebuked this insider. Shah Bhai does not get into such dirty politics. He is a man of honor with a clean background and integrity, no one can question. He will never take potshots at their former ally from Bihar. I hope Shiv Sena does not take cue from his statement and burst crackers under the chair of next Pakistani person visiting Mumbai. Enough ink has been spilled by shiv sena over Pakistan dignitary’s visit to India on ex-BJP Leader Kulkarni. In retaliation to this statement, Pakistan can pass an official statement “The day Dawood Ibrahim is not found in Pakistan, India can burst crackers”. We can now have Diwali throughout year 😉 Politics is so interesting. Who would have thought an election in Bihar will involve Pakistan’s name. I am sure Pakistan (on the verge of self-destruction) is smiling on being involved in a controversy they have nothing to do with. At the end of day, any publicity is good publicity. -The “pakey-bihari” Mango Man Related Post BJP-PDP marriage was never made in heaven Like this:Like...

    Madras High Court (Chennai) decision to Castrate Child Rapists is the Right Step

    Madras High Court (Chennai) decision to Castrate Child Rapists is the Right Step

    Finally the law of land decides to teach a lesson to child rapists in a rightful way. Till date, rapists have gotten away with punishments which range from few years in jail to life imprisonments. Although these punishments are no less, considering the condition of Indian jails. They have rarely proved a deterrent for these monsters. Today citizens of our country do not care about the law of land because they know judiciary is slow, police is corrupt and politicians follow the dharma of vote bank, where they will support a guilty person even if he/she is accused. The beef lynching incident is a perfect example of our politician’s supporting the guilty on basis of vote bank politics. Add to this the lack of strict punishment for accused. How many times have we seen any one following rules with a fear of repercussions in form of penalty, jail time or any form of punishment? Other than few instances of traffic rules, we barely see any one following rules. Since there are so many loopholes in law, no one really cares about the law. As per reports, maximum child rape cases happen in overcrowded slum area. The general perception of public there is the law of land will take ages to catch up with them. They are poor, least educated and do not fear the law. Not that the rich fear the law, they at least have their reputation to protect from getting tarnished in public space. Something to tame the monsters in rich circle. Coming back to the judgment of Madras High Court. Madras High court has recommended castration for Child Rapists. This is indeed a landmark judgment. Government should now take this forward by creating awareness on how serious this form of punishment is. The visuals of what happens when you get castrated in ads can definitely stop perverts from targeting children. I am sure advertisements done smartly can at least deter future rapists from indulging in this crime. With this decision, we have taken a leaf out of Progressive countries like Singapore, who have strictest of punishment for minor of crimes. For major crimes like rape, there is 20 years of punishment and caning. (I would not consider Arab countries to be in this bracket of progressive countries, as they have a horrible record in terms of human rights. Despite their strict law which is very biased in favor of men, they do not fall under the group of progressive countries). Our Government can build upon this judgment by increasing the intensity of punishments for other crimes too. For ex. why castration for child rapists only? How about extending this same punishments to rapists who rape teens or adults? Or honor killing? By bringing in strict laws, we can put a stop to future incidents. What we need is a system, which should put a fear in the mind of citizens from indulging in anything which is against the law with clear, strict punishment defined for each crime. This will also reinstate public’s faith in Government. They will not try and do a gangajal like they did in north east few months back by publically killing a man accused of rape. As I mentioned, the replication of this punishment model can be replicated to traffic rules, etc. In...

    Time to Stop Politics over Rapes

    Time to Stop Politics over Rapes

    Yesterday, Delhi woke up to a horrible news of two rape cases of minors. As expected, Politicians lined up to visit the families of minors. Empathized with them. Made some empty promises and politicized the matter by blaming the other party for this situation. You must be thinking. Seriously! Can they do this? How do they have the audacity to do this? Don’t they have any empathy left in them? What about shame? Like everyone, I am disgusted at these two incidents. I wish we all can come out of our convenience zone and do something to prevent these incidents in future. Since we are too tied up with our day-to-day lives living with the hope, the worse cannot happen to us. We expect our leaders to look after us. A mistake with which we have paid dearly in past and will cost us dearly in future. These leaders are nothing less than disgusting. They use every crime as an opportunity to get into mudslinging and score points over their opponent. Congress has blamed AAP, BJP has blamed AAP and AAP has blamed central Government. Question is “Where does the buck stop?” Well. Let’s get a reality check. First and foremost, they are politicians. Secondly, they speak as per the nature of vote bank, not incident. The incumbent CM of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal after his visit to the families of rape victims blamed Delhi Police for these rapes. He also blamed Modi, BJP, LG for the law and order condition in New Delhi. Anyone who stays in Delhi-NCR has a fair idea of how well AAP and Central Government get along with one another. They fight over every minor issue. Kejriwal wants control of police. Central Government throws him the rule book. Kejriwal sulks. Central Government smirks. The citizen of Delhi suffer in silence. This cycle has been in action since AAP came to power with an overwhelming majority in Delhi. I have usually supported Kejriwal’s style of politics. Not this time. I am disgusted at him for politicizing this issue. Kejriwal should have waited for some time before firing a salvo at his beta-noire LG “Jung” and Prime Minister of India. This was not the moment or time to politicize the matter. He should have refrained from joining the bandwagon of politicians, who were blaming each other for this horrendous crime. This incident did not need Politics. Kejriwal has to understand the rules and regulations under which Delhi functions. He is an ex-government officer, who has full knowledge of the working of Delhi. We all know Delhi’s state government can never control police because of clear rules in constitution. Despite this, he beats the bush when an opportunity arises. The police has caught all accused within a short time frame. I know this cannot undo the bad done to two minors but neither will his speeches. The family of rape victims need help. They will probably need counselling, government’s help in meeting health related expenses for victims undergoing surgeries and a lot of prayers. The law of land should make sure, the guilty are given the maximum punishment for this offence. More rules/laws can be framed to ensure such kind of crimes can be avoided in future. As I mentioned earlier, there are so many things the family...

    Shiv Sena is right in teaching a lessons to Kulkarni and all of us

    Posted by on 10:13 am in Making Non-Sense of Headlines | 0 comments

    Shiv Sena is right in teaching a lessons to Kulkarni and all of us

    Shiv Sena, the party of “passionate Mumbaikar” is back in news. Like always, they are back in news for controversy. The controversy involves a BJP Leader Sudheendra Kulkarni, whose face was blackened by an ink attack launched on him by Shiv Sena members. Mr. Kulkarni was the organizer of former Pakistan’s diplomat Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri’s book launch in Mumbai. Unfortunately, this book launch did not go down well with our patriotic party, Shiv Sena. Like a true Hindustani, they are allergic to anything to everything which has Pakistan attached to it. Obviously their aversion to “Pakistan” element is a little more than ours. Unlike us, they do not enjoy Pakistani singers, they don’t like Pakistani cricket team (I am with them on this) and they do not watch movies of Pakistani actors in Bollywood. How the hell were they supposed to allow book launch of a Pakistani in India? Can an Indian go to Islamabad to do his book launch? Nay! He won’t. Then why do we allow them to do a book launch in India? See. Now I am talking, walking, writing like Shiv Sena 🙂 . Since Mr. Kulkarni was adamant about organizing this event, Shiv Sena decided to teach him a lesson in an innovative way. On the day of event, when Kulkarni was Enroute to the event, his car was stopped by few patriotic men from Shiv Sena. He was pulled out of his car forcefully. What happened after this was anyone’s guess. The “Passionate” men from Shiv Sena blackened his face using ink and paint. Reminds me of a hindi saying written in Bold – italics behind all trucks “Buri Nazar waley tera mooh kala!” I like this political party. They are the ones, who remind us what Pakistan does to us. I would have been ecstatic, had they gotten hold of the ex-Pakistan diplomat whose book was to be launched. The message on the wall was very clear and loud. Take this Pakistan! Until and unless our big brothers from Shiv Sena are there, you cannot play, sing, dance, launch book, cook food or do any damn thing in India. This country is strictly out-of-bounds for you and all your terrorists. You can only come back here when you have self-destructed your Pakistan. As per my spiritual sense (at its height after watching aastha TV whole day), every incident in our life holds a meaning. I am sure this incident did have few lessons for us. Although, they are little different from what Shiv Sena taught Kulkarni (read : ‘Pak agent Kulkarni taught lesson by passionate Mumbaikars’: Sena) . Here is my list: You are a Pak Agent, if you organize a function for anyone from Pakistan. Kulkarni, the man who was supposedly the brain child behind Advani’ s comment on Jinnah is now officially declared as a “Pak Agent” for organizing this function. Makes me wonder, what will happen to those who organize functions for Rahet Fateh Ali khan or other Pakistani artists? In a mutual relationship, there is no Big Brother. BJP cannot always act as big brother to Shiv Sena. They do not have the bandwidth or audacity to challenge the “passionate” mumbaikar Pakistan can kiss good-bye to Mumbai. Pakistan is officially banned in Mumbai, where the voice of shiv Sena...
