    Which cop are you talking about.The guy SRK was trying to bully was an ordinary security wallah …paid by some security agency.He was not a cop.If it is some other cop you are writing about then how is that a guy who has had traumatic experience in the past with cops chose to verbally abuse them without any fear.

    So the author is implying that SRK was attacked and setup  for refusing to let in a fat kid into his team? And all this accusation without any proof while there is audio proof of the actual events? Pathatic apologist for a badly behaved Bollywood star. Does it pay well to stoop so low?

    The blogger Sujata has contradicted herself in the above blog. She has started with showing indifference with IPL by saying that she does not even watch its matches. And she has ended her blog by showing her concern for IPL that if SRK is mistreated, more than one owners of IPL will leave it causing a loss to it. The tone and tenure of the blog gives impression that it is a paid blog.

    It is common knowledge that the the ex-Italian maid , who now happens to be named by an European Luxury magazine as the 4 richest politician of the world after King of Saudi Arabia, Sultan of Brunei and Michael Bloomberg (his wealth is not as a result of plundering the national treasury, but from inheritance and enterprise), can afford to “mantain” legions of “dalals” from the print and electronic media; i cannot imagine that SRK can have his own set of ‘dalals”. Because, dalals just dont come too cheap. But this article proves my hunch wrong.

    While accepting the fact that the MCA are no angels, I find it difficult to accept your line of reasoning. You need to take note of the fact that the independence of the MCA is severely limited by the BCCI. So, even if the MCA takes action, the BCCI can overrule that action. Now, the interesting thing is that SRK is very close to the BCCI (and the IPL). In fact, it is alleged that SRK played a crucial role in the BCCI and Sahara sponsorship issue. He is said to have also played a role in getting the Pune Warriors into the IPL. If the BCCI supports the MCA, it would signal that SRK’s value in the BCCI-IPL circles is dminishing. But the real question is this – will the BCCI intentionally hurt one of its assets (SRK)? Whatever may be SRK’s problems, there is no denying the fact that his remains a commercially viable brand – may not be as good as what it was before, but still viable.

    But still the MCA bans SRK! Why?

    It is shameful on the part of all the administrators either senior bureaucrats of politicians. The other day there was a news item in HT that in a village which is about 80 kms. from Allahabad, said to be the most prestigious constituency, the children eat MUD I repeat Mud as their food. The most disgusting was when the politicians concerned tried to justified that they eat it by choice (habit) and not otherwise as they had options to either eat “Biryani” or “Mud” and they had chosen the later. I attempted to raise my voice by writing in various papers.

    The most shameful was when said to the the most intelligent economists like Montek Singh Ahluwalia was trying to justify the expenditure of few lakhs for renovation of few toilets i the office (Planning Commission) where he work from.

    India will remain poor till such time each and every child is properly taken care of for reasonably good education, health facilities etc…….Please please Manmohan Singh ji break your silence….say something, do something…….

    A point I would like to add in your observations is that we also have to take into account the audience to which most explicit sexual innuendo is targeted to. How discerning are those people to whom most popular Indian Cinema is reaching out to, how they perceive attitudes of men and of women in item numbers and which way do they react to the lyrics and the visuals of the songs you are talking about? Basically in which way does it all reflect in their behaviors in general life.

    I’m SO glad you wrote about this, Vir. I’m with you about sexual references in popular culture. I came across the song in question some 3-4 years ago on youtube when he was still a nobody (he still is a nobody to me). I was shocked and appalled and could not believe my ears when i listened to the lyrics (they are BAD. specially if you understand the crude punjabi he uses in it). Then like 2 years ago, he became this famous punjabi rapper and all that and people went crazy on him. I was like WTH, do people not know about ‘those’ songs? How can anyone in their right mind be a ‘fan’ of his music. I refused to go to his concerts in Melbourne. And I bagged my friends who listened to his music for their bad taste. I’m SO SO SO happy that his songs’ lyrics have been brought into spotlight. I just hope he doesn’t try to cash-in on his notoriety now. Those lyrics should hound him for the rest of his life! Period.

    this is really far fetched to the point of hallucination…

    chinese investment in gawadar is for three reasons

    1. to cricumvent long shipping haul for oil through perilous waters of indian ocean . this port could also help western regions of china.

    2. china is investing heavily in mining sector in afghanistan and gawadar is short distance from afghanistan…

    (india is doing the same and developing an iranian port since investing in a pakistani port would be madness,… it would rob indian strategists of their favorite string of pearl theory…and god forbid it might even lead to greater trust and peace between the neighbors)

    3 this investment would also help pakistan develop an economically backward region. (ah .. we cant have that. can we?)

    nevertheless, if your objective was to raise the usual bogey of china-pakistan ganging up on india… then you dont need facts for that … any theory no matter how imaginary would work.
