We are a funny lot, us the Indians!! We find pleasure in things so strange that leaves the whole world amazed and confused. We find so much pleasure in urinating and spitting at public places that nothing can compare to such pure heavenly experiences and then there are so many situations where we just fail to notice the rampant humour and happiness which is present. We can at times be so self possessed that we stop caring that there is a land by the name Kashmir which needed to be handed over to Pakistan and we also keep crying over the 200 or so lives which were lost in Mumbai while not noticing the death of 9 poor terrorists. But we can also be quite caring at times, taking care of shit aka the household waste from western countries and dumping them in our country so that those people can live their life peacefully and in cleanliness after all we are used to sitting in the fields, what would some petty waste from so few people in these countries matter to us.
For instance how can we fail to see the happiness which we should receive when we have an actor who was booked and served a sentence in jail comes out to contest election. He i being termed the messenger of Gandhi in this age for the youth and of course he should be referred to as one. Dont we all rmr that he was the part of highly successful venture which professed about Gandhi and I am pretty sure that he must have been the only person there sitting with the Writing staff serving up as an encyclopedia about Gandhi and his philosophies. Irony of the situation is that some fools try to write him off, saying that he shouldn’t (or can’t) contest elections and as a result angering his supporters. Now here, I would like ask those dear friends of mine, if we can have so many criminals in politics then why can’t we add another one to the list. After all he made us proud by making a film on Gandhi, thats all we need in a politician ain’t it?
Then you have another set of fools who even try suggesting that may be we could try caring less about International Accolades and recognition and try being satisfied with the recognition we get in our land and not let people who are heroes in their own rights in the nation to the level of paupers in other nations just because they are from a different culture and speak a language very different. After all, the only thing we need in our heroes is a certification from some global body, because its only such bodies which can recognize the real worth of anybody or anything. Don’t you think the people from West Indies are such fools, how could they not make such a fuss about Brian Lara not being amongst the top batsmen in Test Cricket! :O Look at us and all the hue and cry we made just to get a certain someone called Sachin Tendulkar, who just has only 28,000 runs and only 83 centuries in International Cricket (OMG what a shame, not even 100!! 😦 ). I mean what can these nos and view of millions of Indians who consider him “God” mean against a list released by Wisden which placed him at the 25th position. We are colonized people and we need the recognition from our Lords sitting in the office there at Lords to give their stamp of Authority and failing to do so, we can’t do anything but be cry babies because they are so important than the millions of us. Its beyond common sense how West Indians(they are also sort of Indians atleast the name says so) be so ignorant of those high powers and don’t crib about their batsman being there at the top of list. Such a laughing stock they are 🙂 We also really enjoy it when the best movies made by us, which at times have changed lives of people, made people laugh, cry and see things like never before are allowed to compete in Oscars in secondary categories like “Best Foreign Film” after all its always an honour to be recognized by them!
As everybody knows that we are very cooperating people and tend to accept everybody with open arms and hearts, we have been receiving people from all over the world. We are such loving people that we have made it a habit of marking people who don’t identify with us as our own and showering all our TLC on them. That’s why we get all mushy mushy and start blushing when Bobby Jindal kisses his wife in public, We keep calling Salman Rushdie to India, because it is real sons like him who by telling the world about all the problems in India are doing us a favour. We also have no problems in accepting Slumdog Millionaire as our own product, coz after all its based in India, and it has actors like Anil Kapoor & Irfan Khan in it, doesn’t matter that the director is a foreigner coz he knws the director of the movie, its only the actors who make the movie, isn’t it?
