Thank You Munna Bhai!


SO MUNNA BHAI was behind bars for real. His recent bail has come in the wake of a nation wide sympathy wave for the besieged actor. Here’s another look at Munna Bhai:

‘India Today’ says he is Mother India’s that son who never learnt to grow up. But this Munna bhai grew up right here and gave us back that which we had lost.

Well, in the starting I had abused Sanjay for being an embarrassment for his reputed and noble father. It was about 14 years ago that he was arrested and sent to jail. As the case dragged on I gradually turned soft on Sanjay but I knew he had broken the law and therefore, he will be and must be punished. I felt happy when the Judge said that he was not a terrorist. Even then, I knew that he would get punished for his crime. It’s hard to see such a versatile entertainer behind bars but I don’t think it is unfair or any type of injustice.

I want to discuss what this guy, whom ‘India Today’ says "Mother India ka kabhi bada na hone wala bachcha", gave us. Few days back my little niece was talking to me and she told me that she likes Gandhiji. I asked her what she liked about Gandhiji. She told me that he was a nice man. Then I asked her what she knew about him. She told me about slaps on face and so on. I told her that he had said this because he was not strong enough to retaliate in kind. She replied that he was not weak and it was his just way to make the other guy learn by his example.

knew all this, I knew the name Gandhi was not a name of majboori but majbooti, which we can’t understand because we are too weak to do so. I knew all this because I had read a lot of books, but my niece knew it because she saw the movie Munna bhai. She is not yet eight and she knows this philosophy of making people into better human beings. I don’t know whether all those who learnt about Gandhiji in Munna Bhai classes, will remember his lessons or not but at least they now know a bit of it. I remember a few years back many college-going youth were not clear about Gandhiji and his ideology.

I smiled a little when I came to know that Sanjay has been kept at Yarwada jail where the Mahatma himself spent much of his time. For a long time I had been thinking about positive punishments and these days just because of Sanjay’s public appeal I feel the need of such punishments more. But now that he has got bail and a nation’s prayers for his wellbeing have been answered, I feel we can use his appeal for some purpose of our society.

The Nuke Deal

Well so the heat is on, on the nuke deal and now NDA wants parliamentary approval for the deal as if it has no knowledge about the rule and the fact that the deal doesn't needs that.
I want to say a few things about things going on these days. Three groups out off four in the parliament are against the deal and every one has separate reason for that. Lets see how; First about the so called UNPA. The group is against such deal with US and says that it is against the national interests, how they won't tell. Infact they had decided to go against anything which UPA does. After all they are making an alternative. There is Samajwadi Party which is opposing the deal because it is with USA and I still remember how happy Mr. Amar Singh was to throw red carpet to Mr. Clinton and posing his visit as the major achievement of the Samajwadi Party and thinking that others are not happy because Mr. Clinton is their guest. The show was embrassing but now they are posing of being anti American, with the C B Naidu, whose time was remarkable just because of visits from US and visits to US.
NDA is opposing the deal, saying it is against the national interest. I guess they think the interest of BJP and co. is the interest of the nation and as they could not make this deal and now UPA is making this deal so it is against. If they would have been in power they would have tried for the deal but alas the power changes every thing. George saab! you said nothing when you got stripted depite of being minister from India and now crying foul?
And the left, if the deal would have been with China, they would have supported it but it is US, the enemy of communism, though not of India, so they will be against it. Dear communists what you were thinking for last two years when the deal was in process? you were sleeping then? Now when the deal is final you got it bad? And yes communists were never in favour of India's nuke programme, and this deal is going to give uninterrupted uranium supply for India's nuke programms, so how communists can be happy with it. After all they will support only Iran's nuclear programme. Well communists China was not happy with the deal but now on your opposition they are happy. Feeling Good?
I am in favour of this deal because I know we need Uranium for our peaceful projects, for more power and for progress. The deal is on the basis of equality between US and India. This is for our energy needs. I see no harm in it. Dear Prime Minister if this time you surrender it will cast us much. please say firmly that the deal is done and it is for our future.
