So what if slumdog millionaire is passe' ... or is it ? The movie is cool and so is this small poem penned for Mr. Gandhi
Jai Ho…Jai Ho… Varun Gandhi Ki Jai Ho
Asli ki communal parties ko ab Bhey ho…bhey ho
Aaja Aaja jeela Sache hindu ki tarah
Bewakoof banene wale “secular” partiyon se bachna zara
inki chikni chupdi baataen nahi Khari
har roz yeh policy banatein hain nayi
door raho..insee dooor raho…
Jai Ho… sache desh bhagat ki jai ho…
Vote do….isi ko vote do
jaaaaai hoooo jaaaaai ho….
Jai Hind !
Well, before i am labelled communal, anti minority etc etc. by the elitist elite, lets have a look at what really is the hullaballo about Varun's speech and whether the reaction to his so called "rantings" is as loud as to other such rantings.
Excerpts from my fellow blogger colleagues below - You can check the full article here :http://www.sandeepweb.com/2009/03/19/what-did-varun-gandhi-say/
"But is he alone? Let’s see.
- In January 2005, Ram Vilas Paswan openly used Maulana Meraj Khalid Noor, a Osama bin Laden look-alike on all his election campaigns and defended the stunt by saying that Osama had some following among the Muslim youth. Media reaction: End of interview.
- In February 2006, Minister for Minority Welfare and Haj in the Mulayam Singh Yadav government, Haji Yaqoob Qureishi announced a cash reward of 51 Crore Rupees for anyone who beheaded the Danish cartoonists. Media reaction: listless to tepid.
- In September 2007, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister thundered, who is this Rama? From which engineering college did he graduate? Is there any proof for this? Media response: secular silence.
- In November 2008, the selfsame Karunanidhi dropped additional gems: If a Brahmin and snake are seen together, the Brahmin must be killed first. Media reaction: report and take the rest of the day off.
These are but only four instances of similar verbal acrobatics to woo vote banks."
