Vir Sangvi You Are Just Another Pawn In This Game


My message to Vir Sangvi which he didn’t approve in his blog. So here it’s –

If I may Mr. Sanghvi – here is the rebuttal. I shall call this does Vir Sanghvi has a spine? Or is he just another political concubine. I don’t put you in the same bracket as Barkha Dutta – no! She is not as arrogant as you, she does not have your joie de vivre!Your scripted interviews with Sonia Gandhi and Saif Ali Khan makes me realize what a phoney you really are. Your dead pan expression every time you go to some exclusive resort makes me realize that your fall from grace will be as boring as your shows. You give us the references to your criticism of A Raja and co. Do you really expect educated people in India to believe you. To quote your statement from your text “pass on message to any Congress leader we met in the course of our work”. Who the hell you think you are? Who the hell are you to pass messages to the government?

Just remember – you are just another pawn in this game. And if you have any spine left – kill yourself or leave my country.

The Great Indian Tamasha – How a Few People Play with a Country


barkha dutt and vir sanhgvi tape

The Varanasi bomb attack is just a distraction from the slew of scams that has erupted for  the Congress government. The one 18 month old baby who died today is just a casualty of either miscalculation or a sentimental value for the airways. This had to happen – Adarsh Society case, Tamil Nadu land case, 2G Spectrum scam and now the fall from grace of talking heads like Vir Sanghvi and the holier than thou Barkha Dutta.

She is the Kargil reporting, angry young TV journalist whose integrity and gritty nature even inspired Farhan Akhtar to model Preity Zinta’s character in the movie Lakshya; she has now become just like the rest of the other journalistic concubines of politicians and corporate lobbyists. At least Vir Sanghvi is arrogant, he goes to 5-star restaurants for a charity meal, at least he wears his vanity and the pseudo intellectual accent on his sleeve. The scripted interviews with Sonia Gandhi made him the pet of 10 Janpath.

If Barkha Dutt still has a spine left in her body then she should kill herself. Kill herself because she has betrayed the inspiration she once was  to millions of girls wanting to be like her. Does Pranoy Roy sleep tonight knowing he created monster or is he just happy for his protégé. I bet Sardesai is having a laugh!

I am angry that people don’t rise up. I am angry that by Feb 2011 no one will care and the news will go to the back pages and then disappear. NDTV stands for integrity – does it really. They have become power hungry just like Fox news or Sky. If Barkha Butt is not shown the door then we know where does Dr. Roy stand. 

Her Twitter retraction is full of guilt, the hairstyle and make-up speaks volumes of that arrogance that she had once renounced. The other TV journalists will now get the pitchforks and we will watch the once feisty young reported be put on ice. But will they? Karan Thappar did a story but only because he gleaming that he has chance to come back into the spotlight. Everyone loves a roast!

The Terrorist Attack – Varanasi

The Varanasi bomb attack was done just create a distraction from everyone. A small incident with the least cost of life, big enough to get the media blitz and small enough not kill many people. This is democracy in-action at its best. While the Indian public is glued to reality television garbage, Bollywood scandals and of course our cricket team – the real story gets squashed.

The attack which was followed right on queue by the terrorist group Indian Mujahedeen claiming responsibility. I wonder about all the other Indian Mujahedeen attacks – was some scandal going on then? That would be interesting.

The Verdict

We cannot ask the army to take over, we know how corrupt they are. Let’s just say its the system we live in. It’s  all connected. Since people like Corrupt Nira Radia and Vir Sanghvi talk about cabinet portfolios like they were exchanging recipes. We live in a world where we can’t tell the bad guys from the good guys. All we can hope is that they don’t sell India as cheaply as they do now.

Who Is Behind Barack Obama’s Influential Speeches?


barack obama speech

· Today I came to know about a startling truth! Hold On Hold On. I am sure there are millions of people out there who got taken away by the way some of the most influential politicians speak. I really got inclined towards some of the politicians like :

· Martin Luther King “I have a dream”

· BUT BUT Little did I know that they didn’t write their own speeches. Isn’t it weird for “We the people” who choose their politicians based on their ideas and plans they share in their speeches. The public form their opinion based on the speeches they watch during the campaign. The politicians share their plans, ideas through their speeches and we vote based on the politicians that touch our heart through their speeches.

· When the speeches and ideas are written by other people then how can we form our trust and faith on some particular politicians who are so detached from their speeches? There were some president’s who didn’t even meet their speech writers.

· Needless to say, the speeches delivered during the elections plays an integral part in choosing the one you want to vote for. All of us have recently witnessed how Barack Obama’s speeches played a vital role in his historical win to be the first African – American President of America. He reminded me of Martin Luther King, who used to write his own speeches. Since the time he has been elected to be the next President of America, everybody has been asking the same question “when Barack Obama is swearing in ? Your long awaited curiosity will be over tomorrow- On 20th Jan Barack Obama is swearing in .

· Each one of us are looking forward to hearing his Inaugural speech, after all the the first impression makes a lot of difference. We have witnessed how marvelously Barack Obama delivers his speeches that leave the spectators with goose bumps. His compelling speech hes during the campaign prompted most of the Journalists to declare the win of Barack Obama months before the results of the elections were declared. His magnifecent speeches not only brings the whole nation together but also create a sense of hope that things can change for better in his presdency. Indeed it’s true that Barack Obama has a speechwriter! Now the million dollar question is that who is the one behind Barack Obama’s influential speeches ?

· Who is the speech writer for Barack Obama ? He is Jon Favreau a 26 years old guy who is entitled for Barack Obama’s Speeches! Indeed it’s true that Obama has a speech writer but he makes sure that he contributes his ideas in his speeches. Jon Favreau sits with him and writes his ideas and in the end he reshapes it into the final product. Does that imply that Jon Favreau played an important role in shaping Obama as an influential politician? I guess Yes! I am sure all of you have been eagerly waiting to watch Obama’s swearing in Speech. I am anticipating a yet another influential and an electrifying speech by Obama on 20th Jan. A round of applause in advance;) I’am sure his speech will be well received, provided it introduces a sense of relief for the whole nation who has been going through a tough time.

Do you think its right for politicians to hire a speech writer? If Yes then why? (Except that they are over occupied in handling other issues)
