You must have understood by the title itself what this post is all about. But in case you haven’t. Read on.
Why else do you think I’ve written this? *PUFF*
We all understand the meaning of term ‘Irony’ very well, but that is because we have heard it so many times before. But not all of us learned this term the same way. I mean there are no less but seven learning styles. And hey, I’m not gonna bore you with what they are. You already know that. You are smart. Right?
So I was sitting the other day, googling the term Irony because I had forgotten what it meant and this what I found-
What? You want me to say it? I thought you got that already. Did you? Okay, fine. Read the title again. Did you get it now? You did? Good!
So I found the word ‘KARNI’. And no, I didn’t really find it. It sort of popped out on my computer screen. So, I’m gonna tell you want it means.
Letter K means- You like to try new things.
Letter A means- You can be very quiet when you have something on your mind.
Letter R means- You are a no non-sense person.
Letter N means- You may appear innocent, unassuming and shy.
Letter I means- You have empathy and human understanding.
You must be thinking what has KARNI got to do with IRONY. I mean there is no relation between the two, whatsoever. Right? *PUFF*
Well…I would have thought the same had I not been watching news regularly (actually, I was just looking for updates on Padmavati… I mean Padmavat…when I found out this).
The honourable Karni Sena chief went to Sabarmati Ashram yesterday, and that too, to INGEST the feeling of non-violence. *COUGH*COUGH*COUGH*
Yeah right….you read it correctly. My head too had spun like that.
But as they say, ‘All are not saints, who go to church’.
So there was this other link that opened up….. (I mean…I was too curious to find out whether I’d get to watch the movie that I’d been waiting for impatiently. So I ended up googling)
BJP office bearers were doubling the bounty on the heads of the actors and actress starring in the movie because India is a democracy and it’s every citizens’ fundamental right to freedom….freedom to expression…which means that the producers calling a conference to clear the clouds over the controversy, by telling that the movie is a work of fiction means nothing. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
I mean they haven’t even seen the movie yet….and they are taking the law and order of the country in their hands, by merely watching the song ghoomar.
How do they even know that there are scenes between Ranveer and Deepika? Unless…they are way too fond of watching the duo onscreen that they cannot process the fact that they are just a part of the movie and that they haven’t even shot a single scene together.
Well… in that case…they could have simply waited for their next movie instead of throwing stones on a school bus full of kids or even setting their own community member’s vehicle on fire….and even if that was by mistake.
And if they don’t trust the censor board enough to empathise with any community’s sentiments, then they should be sensible enough to, at least, watch the movie first and then react…which, by the way, still does not justify violence and burning PVRs.
I mean even RaGa understands that violence can bring no good….didn’t you notice how quiet he had been since the controversy? *PUFF*
