- Shiney Ahuja rape case:
Somebody told me; “Why would he rape his maid? He is a Bollywood actor. Obviously, he will have better options”. I disagree. Rapists are horrible men and they pick victims based on their helplessness and not on looks. Why else would children get molested/raped everyday? His wife did a Hillary Clinton by supporting him in the media. Lady, atleast wait till he is proved innocent. Gone are the times when women were expected to support bad husbands. Speaking out against him after the DNA test had proved the rape would have garnered more sympathy. It is so sad… everyday the newspapers are filled with news of rape… it is very scary too. Sometimes I look around and think the world is all wrong…. too wrong.
- Death of MJ:
I don’t know what the hue and cry is about… yes, he was an excellent singer… yes, he was a great performer.. but he ruined his life. It was fraught with scandal, drugs, plastic surgery. Is that the example an icon should set? And he is probably responsible for his own death… how wrong can you go when you have EVERYTHING at your beck and call? Seriously. I think people shedding tears for him is silly… Mithun had even said; “My God has died”.
- New ads:
I love the new Cadbury ads. They were played all day on MTV on 1st July. People were discussing it even on Facebook. Good work.
Another good ad by Idea… “Walk when you talk”. Very good line of thought.
The new Coke ad “Strange Love” is brilliant… have not seen anything like it on TV.
- Surat rape case:
The news of the rape case chilled me… school girls being raped by well off guys and blackmailed? How terrifying. Tomorrow (many many many years later) my daughter could go through this and I would never know. But then, molestors/rapists targeting young school girls is very common. Don’t believe me? I was molested at 6 am while going for my 12th std tutions in A’bad in a deserted lane. Thankfully, there were 2 old men with a dog taking a morning walk. I escaped and went to them for help. The molestor sped off on his bike. Like I said, everything is wrong with the world.
