Big B & Narendra Modi : Scapegoats

Last week two eminent personalities of our country hogged all the limelight in Media. The first person was Big B i.e. Shri Amitabh Bachchhan & next one Gujarat’s CM Shri Narendra Modi (Someone may disagree with me but he is definitely eminent personality of India). Both were made the scapegoat of immoral conduct of media and pseudo secularism observed by the Congress party. It was once again proved that Media in a race to to get the news bytes & TRP can stoop to any lows and Pseudo secularist Congress just know how to play around with the feelings of common man.

First let’s talk about Big B. All the drama started with the presence of Big B for the inauguration of new four lanes of Sea link bridge in Mumbai. It is known thing that Big B is not enjoying good terms with Gandhi family. So all the religious slaves of Gandhi family have to distant themselves from Big B. Also, recently Big B associated himself with the Brand Gujarat. Since then whole media is working overtime to portray him political and cook up some stories about it. Media dissect every minute thing which Big B writes on his blog and cook up some exciting story out of it. Congress is thinking that his CM shaking hand with Big B or sharing dais with Big B will put their secular party image in danger coz now Big B has agreed to promote tourism of Gujarat ruled by Mr. Narendra Modi. How immature? At the same time isn’t it an attempt to neglect/insult/isolate Gujarat? Is congress party trying to convey message that whoever will associate themselves with Gujarat will be isolated and neglected? Why such an insult for Gujarat? If Congress has problem with Narendra Modi or BJP is fine but why to hate the progress initiative of Gujarat? Big B has hit back on this attitude of congress party very well on his blog. Read Big B’s defence on his blog : After reading this can anyone say he is wrong in anyways? He has also put up the invitation letters and appreciation letters he has received from state government ( This clearly shows that Big B was good till he didn’t associate himself with brand Gujarat. Congress party in compulsion to object BJP is doing injustice with Gujarat. Hate Mr. Modi but why any of the progress related initiative of Gujarat? While I’m writing this, news has come that Maharashtra CM has visited event in Pune a day earlier so that he doesn’t have to share the dais with Big B. Big B has written on his blog that Abhishek’s posters and video were also removed from the WWF earth hour event (for which he is brand ambassador) because the event was to be attended by the Delhi CM Sheila Dixit.  Isn’t it ridiculous? Big B is decorated personality nationally and internationally and he definitely doesn’t deserve cold shoulders in his home nation, home state and home city. Congress party is fine to associate themselves with goddesses of corruption like Jaylalithas & Mayawatis but not fine with person who is trying to help out Gujarat in it’s progress initiative. Is it justified? Also, as Big B mentioned why Congress is targeting him only. Why not congress is boycotting likes of Ratan Tata or Mukesh Ambani who has their big business interests in Gujarat. Why congress is adopting double standard? Congress has definitely need to explain it’s stand.

Now let’s talk about another person who is beloved child of media & soft target of the pseudo secular politics observed in our country. Narendra Modi yesterday appeared in front of the SIT (Special Investigation Team) appointed by Apex court. I’m happy that Mr. Modi appeared against SIT and set and example. In India rich and influential people know the way to evade the judicial system and if Mr. Modi had wished he could have done so easily. But in a spirit of common man, he appeared against SIT when he was called. I think he set the right example in political system to respect the law and order. He proved that he is not like Madhu Koda or Shibu Soren who is constantly evading the investigations or arrests by hook or crook. I would like to remind people about absconding Shibu Soren (to avoid the arrest) when he was cabinet minister in UPA government. Likes of Sajjan kumar and Jagadeesh tytler still evading the warrants and inquiries in 84 sikh riots in Delhi.  Those who says Mr. Modi forgot his राज धर्म at the time of Godhra riots then why they are only questioning Mr. Modi? Why not Mayawati is being questioned or isolated for wasting public’s money on statues and getting herself garlanded with currency notes? Is Mayawati untouchable for pseudo secular political parties? I want to ask our political parties that secularism is the only ethos people of our nation wants? People of nation doesn’t deserve good infrastructure, better job prospects, quality life, etc. Modi is elected representative of Gujarat through democratic process but still not respected by Central Government. If that is not the case then why Central government is not pressing for his case when US is not granting him visa for USA on humanitarian ground? This is definitely not the kind of treatment elected head of state deserves.  English media is always busy in painting villainous picture of Modi and showing Gujarat & Mr. Modi in bad light. Why English media is giving so much of importance to interrogation of Mr. Modi and Gujarat? English media only remembers Godhra but can’t see anything good about Mr. Modi or Gujarat while ignoring the wrong doings in rest of the political system.

Such things are totally disgusting. Hope the better sense prevail for our Media and political fulcrum. Amen!!



I wonder why choppers carrying politicians like Mdm. Mayawati, Sharad Pawar, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Mdm Jaylalitha and others never crashes? Perhaps Indians are not so lucky. 🙂


Off the late I was away from blogosphere. Though it was not deliberate attempt to stay away, but somehow I missed out on converting (serializing) my thoughts and mesmerising moments I lived in recent past in to the binary form. During this time I was least concerned about expressing my thoughts on Govt.’s proposal on curtailing security for leaders like Mdm. Maya, Lalu, Mulayam and all the gung ho that followed into the parliament or on the event of Dr. Kalam’s frisking by Continental airlines’ security official @Delhi airport or on Rakhee’s gimmicks, etc. etc. For last couple of weeks, I enjoyed being me.

Considering my current state of mind, I can definitely murmur the line or two from a song of Movie “Life in Metro” :

इन दिनो दिल मेरा, मुज से है कहे रहा,

तु…….. ख्वाब सजा…….

तु……… जी ले जरा…..

है तुजे भी इजाजत, तु भी कर ले महोब्बत…….

In recent past, I have adopted new approach towards life. Previously I was always worried, anxious, unhappy and always cribbing about life. But Now I consciously try to kick out these negative emotions out from my life. Off the late, I have understood the importance of having positive thoughts and it’s influence on life. I try to take things lightly now. Try to keep my tamper in check. Even at home also I don’t get into the small small matters now. Obviously, I can not change overnight. But I consciously try to change. Let’s see how far I can go and how much I can change my life with this.

With the changed approach, few goodies have somehow indirectly come to the life. Two weeks back, I got a new project at work. The new team is very comfortable to work with. Immediate boss is super cool and I share a very good rapport with him. So on the work front at least things turned good for me (So what no increments this time, slump in bonuses and big dip in savings… at least better work to do…. see the positives n no cribbing…).

Okey now moving on to the next goodie. In the last two weeks, I attended two gr8 office parties. Just yesterday we had a party as we released new version of our product in market. After almost 6 months, I played 3 full games of bowling. I enjoyed very much. Though I’m not champ at bowling, it is one of my fav game. All the team members including bosses were in jovial mood. Our team is kind of United nations of Asia. As in United Nations, people from world over work same way in our team also people from across the countries of Asia work. Few of the gals in team are always chirpy n bubbly kind of and on such occasion needlessly to say they were at their prime. I also want myself to be (more) cheerful and kind of babla (male version of bubbly or should I say bunty?). So will keep thin in mind. I wish I could put the snaps of the party here but can not put them in public domain. To my surprise, my Japanese bosses (both in their late 50s) shared the honours of top scoring in bowling. Although bosses are 50+, they get younger once they get their hands on balls. The way they were spinning the balls and getting the strikes regularly was delight to see for me. In a end, I got mug as a consolation gift. But the joy I had was far more valuable than the mug.

After getting into the new project, we had one more party after KOM. We went for dinner at Chat Masala. The food there was amazing. In my 3+ year’s of stay in Singapore, I had never ate such a delicious north Indian food in Singapore. The taste of falooda which I had there is still there in my tongues. That evening was quiet enjoyable with whole team in jovial mood and boss is at his best in party mood. Ultimate delight.

Yesterday again I had food outside and this time I took lunch with my friends at Chutney mary. Again a very good experience for me. Makke di roti, Naan, Papri chat and Hara bhara kabab there was too good. One more outing I had with friends recently and that was ultimate refreshment for me. It got me out of the daily groove of same office and home life and charged me for at least next 2-3 months. So what king of good times (king fisher) was not around,


Tiger and Heineken was there to keep me in high spirit.


With friends, it was like bachelor’s day out. Just hang up the calls from home for an evening and enjoy the time of your life. (What an Idea, sir ji!!) Chk the “PunkyMoods” cartoon on my blog in right hand side widget.

At home also I spent some good time. I saw few movies which are quiet close to my heart. To name a few, I saw DDLJ, Life in Metro, Kabhi haan kabhi naa, Aashiqui, Phir teri kahani yaad aayi, etc. (All these movies are my fav and I can write at least one post for each movie except DDLJ coz on that I can write a book :). Infect, one post is already there on my blog on “Life in Metro”).

Few other things as well to cheer for me in recent times but not meant to be shared in public forum.

So for now parties, outings, movies and no cribbing. Perfect mix for keeping a soul in happy state. As of now it’s rocking time for me n hope such rocking time continue for me forever n ever……. Amen…..
