Why I won’t watch Dangal

First of all I am a great admirer of Amir Khan as an “Actor” and the key word is “Actor”. He has indeed charmed us since times knows when. I remember saving my pocket-money only to buy a sailor hat that he popularized in ‘Dil Hai ke Manta Nahin’ but again i was a kid then. Later we got charmed by ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ and we mesmerized its dialogues when we should have been mesmerizing our science formulas. As time passed I learned to distinguish between a Reel Life Vs Real Life.

As a nation we are very forgiving and sometimes fail to distinguish between real and reel life actors on silver screen. That probably is explained by high number of silver screen artiste in politics.

Personally I admire Amir’s choice of subject as always. I am sure that Mr. Perfectionist would have given his all in this movie and thanks to him for bringing the story of Mahaveer Phogat. Our nation is graveyard of many more stories like these either of success or struggle and I hope many more stories like these find their way to a medium from where their fellow citizens can know about it. Where I am not convinced is, should a purely commercial activity be seen as an act of redemption which would make someone sacrosanct? His views in real life came into light during Narmada agitation. While many slam the present gov or its supporters for calling out others anti-national etc., Mr Khan himself called the present prime minister most “unpatriotic” very loosely. (Ref: Walk the talk with Shekhar Gupta). Now this is a hypocrisy when you want to reserve the right to call someone “unpatriotic” only to yourself.

But again we live in strange times, where truth is stranger than fiction. We live in times where a silver screen actress Pallavi Joshi has to appear and explain the benefits of Goods and Service Tax while an ex revenue officer who is sitting chief minister gives out movie reviews! Lastly Mr. Khan in future just in case your better half feels a bit anxious, ask her to raise her right hand, close her eyes, take a deep breath, place it on her heart and chant “all is well, all is well”.

iLL-Liberals

The story of Indian ‘liberals’ has mostly been one of loud words and selective actions to suit their own narrative. They act as self-appointed messiahs but have themselves become the type of dogmatic cult that they professed they wanted to fight against. It’s apt that we titled this article “ill liberals” because they have clearly been ill for a long time, suffering from the megalomaniacal belief that they are the sole custodian of truth and the gatekeepers of morality and justice stifling every opposing view.
