Can You beat Sanjay Leela Bhansali as the Greatest Liar About History?

Mr Sanjay Leela Bhansali if I make a movie a decade later showing this accomplished director was a drug addict and used to beat his co actors on sets of course with a disclaimer that this movie is a work of art and changes have been made to characters but use the name Sanjay Leela Bhansali

How will you feel?

Sanjay Leela Bhansali was born in the year 1963 in Mumbai. He was a student of Film and television Institute of India, from where he was thrown out after a spat with the institute’s director.

Bhansali is also the only filmmaker who couldn’t be bothered with authenticity, accuracy and other such yardsticks when it comes to creating cinema.

Devdas

He is the only filmmaker who could not only take Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s much-loved parable Devdas and give it a saas-bahu serial makeover in the name of creative license. After all, in the dozen odd adaptations of the novel no one could come with the idea of putting Chandramukhi and Paro in the same space, at the same time and heck even make them dance the same steps.

Bajirao Mastani

It’s rather unfortunate that the legend of Peshwa Bajirao, something that possessed all the right ingredients needed for a truly great film, ended up falling short in the hands of the one filmmaker who had the right credentials to take it to the next level.

Facts distorted in Bajirao Mastani

He was the great Maratha general and statesman, changed the map of India in the mid-eighteenth century. His military campaigns were classic examples of his genius.
It was he who expanded the Maratha Kingdom beyond Maharashtra across the Vindhyas and got it recognised in Delhi, the capital of the Mughals who kept Bharat (India) under their rule for many years. The Maratha Kingdom created by its founder, Shivaji, and later expanded by Bajirao reached its peak during his son’s reign twenty years after his death. After driving the Afghans out of the Punjab, they raised the saffron flag not just on the walls of Attack, but even beyond.
Bajirao is thus acknowledged as one of the greatest warriors in Indian history.
“A brilliant military tactician, a born leader and a brave soldier; in every possible, sense he was the true torchbearer of Chhatrpati Shivaji’s dream.”
Bajirao was struck by a virulent fever at Raver (near Indore,south of river Narmada) and hardly in a weeks time, he breathed his last (on 18 th April 1740). He was just forty.
At the time of his death his wife Kashibai and son Janardhan were by his side. His son performed his obsequies.

About the movie
The 9th decedents of Bajirao were upset with the character shown of this great warrior as a lost lover
Every time Mahendra Peshwa thinks of the lyrics of the song ‘Malhari’ from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming historic drama Bajirao Mastani, he shudders.
“It is unimaginable to think that Thorle Bajirao would use words such as ‘Dushman ki waat lavli’,” he says, his voice dripping with contempt.
In a phone interview with HuffPost India, 52-year-old Mahendra, said
“I understand filmmakers taking cinematic liberties, but what I don’t understand is the inefficient research leading to gross historical inaccuracies,”
So Bhansali managed to show this hero as a doomed lover who gave up his life for a woman not bothered about his kingdom



The limits of fiction?

Though Sahasrabudhe acknowledges that the romantic aspect of the story was a later invention, she still thinks there is a limit to how far imagination should go.

“In the name of fiction, you cannot show something that is non-cultural, non-historical and disgusting,” she said. “Sanjay Leela Bhansali has put a statement that this is fiction – then he should not use their real names. Otherwise how can you claim anything?”

Fate of Padmavati

Now after opposition to his latest movie Bhansali again giving FOE and work of art as an excuse. Bollywood fraternity standing behind this director like never before say that Art is in danger. Their excuse ” when you don’t even know the script how can you react”

My simple question to them. Can we trust Bhansali when he has distorted two legends Devdas and Bajirao? What tomorrow he gets away writing disclaimer and portray all vulgar facts on his lavish sets?

Now lets get down to facts of Sanjay Bhansali contribution to society. With films earning unlimited wealth the estimated wealth of this director is
NET WORTH 2016 – 112 MILLION $

However in name of contribution to society his financial contribution limited to extending a compensation of over Rs 20 lakh to the family of a worker, who was killed in a mishap on the sets of his next film “Padmavati”.

In the name of social welfare he has hardly made any movies giving some message to society or national interest.

Compare this to Respected Nana Patekar. Check these facts about this not so rich actor

Nana_Patekar_Sanjay_Leela_Bhansali_Distort_History_Bollywood_1

While he can afford almost every luxury of life, Nana Patekar still chooses to live in a 1 BHK apartment with his mother.

He had made a generous donation of 15,000 rupees per family to almost 62 families of the farmers who committed suicide in Marathwada region. He himself visited around 112 farmers’ families in Marathwada.

His Organisation now plans to connect with 700 more in the areas of Nagpur, Latur, Hingoli, Parbani, Nanded, Aurangabad, etc.

His foundation has already successfully managed to collect Rs. 22 crores from the people for farmer welfare. The major aim of the foundation now is to fill back the dried lakes and rivers in order to provide safe drinking water to farmers and their families.

Actor Nana Patekar personally went to the seats of farmer widows and handed over cheques of Rs. 15,000 in a small hall in Latur, Marathwada. When there was a power failure for 5 minutes, people turned on the torch on their phones so that Nana Patekar could continue to distribute cheques.

Explaining his involvement and contribution towards the cause, Nana Patekar told media: “Marte damm tak jeene ki vajah mil gai hai mujhe.” (I have found a reason to live, till I die.)

 

Now I leave it to readers if they applaud Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his lavish sets and direction or boycott him for distorting facts about history. Remember our kids watch movies and they have much stronger impact then what is written in books or available online.

Wake up Bollywood. Sadly you never united when India was being shown in bad light by your fraternity or when pakistani actors making fun of our country.

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal Duel is Nothing You’d Want to Miss

People following Tennis are in for treat tomorrow because the moment they have been waiting for around 6-7 years has finally arrived. Yes, Ladies & Gentlemen, It’s a Roger Federer Vs Rafael Nadal final in the Australian Open at Melbourne.

Every sport has at least two teams or players who are considered as “Arch Rivals”. In Cricket, we know the rivalry between England-Australia (The Ashes), In Basketball, Golden State Warriors vs Cleveland Cavaliers (James Lebron vs Stephen Curry). In Football, we have the great “El Clasico” (Real Madrid vs Barcelona) and finally in Tennis, we have “The Swiss Maestro” Vs “The Killer Forehand of Spain”.

The rivalry between Federer and Nadal is one of the best rivalries, I’ve ever seen in my whole life. It’s like a fight between a Lion & a Tiger. The intensity of the match starts from the first game itself. Once they went on to make the greatest rally of 30+ shots.

Even though the stats are in Rafa’s favour, Federer shouldn’t be taken for granted. The 2008 Wimbledon final is the third longest singles final in tennis history which was around 4 hours and 48 minutes. Federer literally cried at the end of the match.

That was probably the time when both the players were at their prime and the that Wimbledon final can be defined as the “Dawn Of The New Era”.

Both the players have had a rough time for the past two years. Many said Federer withered with age and Rafa suffered a huge knee injury. But even after all these happenings, even fate couldn’t avoid this amazing rematch between these great athletes.

As a conclusion, I will just say that,“If a person went to sleep 7 years ago and woke up today… he would be happy to see that at least something hasn’t changed.”

Missing a match like this would be shame, so I request everyone not to miss tomorrow’s final.

Peace

THE ORANGE HAIR EXTREMIST – DONALD TRUMP

Narcissist, Misogynist, hot-headed, obnoxious and on top of all a Billionaire, sound familiar? Yes, I am talking about the 45th President of The United States of America, Donald John Trump.

Since announcing his candidacy for President- and then actually bagging the job thanks to the US election results 2016. we’ve been exposed to a steady slew of ridiculousness from the businessman-turned-TV personality-turned-Leader Of The Free World. An endless list of controversial statements from the man himself caught my attention.I have no idea where to start. If a black man wishes to become the President of the United States of America he need to have a degree from University of Columbia, needs to be an editor of the Harvard law review and then the president of the Harvard Law Review, a research assistant to a constitutional scholar, an associate at a law firm, a US senator. But if a white man wants to be the president of The USA he needs to be rich and white.

Who is Donald trump?

A guy who hates women but has himself been married 3 times till date, a man of his word I guess. Unsurprisingly, given his opinions on beautiful women, Donald seemed to enjoy his sideline as president of the Miss World enterprise (which is basically like being president of the United States, right?) an organization that put teenage girls in heels and bikinis and then had them jump around on stage. So how did he go from gauche billionaire to potentially having his finger on the red button? Well, he’d been talking about politics for years, first suggesting that he might run for election in 1988, and suggesting it regularly until 2012. In 2013 he spent an estimated $1 million dollars on research into becoming President. But it wasn’t until June 2015 that Trump called a press conference at the Trump Tower in New York and announced his intention to run for President of the United States, whilst the whole of the rest of the world collectively shook their heads.

I’ve been following him since the time he announced his run for the President, The first and a very controversial statement given by him was about the second amendment and Hillary Clinton.  Donald Trump said that Hillary Clinton wanted to “essentially abolish the Second Amendment” because of her support for gun control. General Michael Hayden, who is the former head of the CIA, stated that “If someone else had said that outside the hall, he’d be in the back of a police wagon now with the Secret Service questioning him.”

And his comments which sometimes incited people for violence started coming up. One of them being the comment on Captain Humayun Khan, a U.S soldier who was killed in Iraq in 2004 by a suicide bomber and later was awarded a bronze star medal and a purple hat. Khizr Khan spoke about his son and criticized Trump for his Muslim ban proposals, asking if Trump had ever read the U.S constitution, and offering to give him a copy. He stated that Trump had “sacrificed nothing and no one.” Trump responded to the criticism on Twitter, stating that Khizr Khan “viciously attacked me” and tweeting: “This story is not about Mr. Khan, who is all over the place doing interviews, but rather RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM and the U.S. Get smart!” Later, Trump released a written statement saying “Captain Humayun Khan was a hero to our country and we should honor all who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our country safe”, adding “While I feel deeply for the loss of his son, Mr. Khan, who has never met me, has no right to stand in front of millions of people and claim I have never read the Constitution (which is false), and say many other inaccurate things.”

Trump frequently praised Russia’s Vladimir Putin, calling him a strong leader, “unlike what we have in this country, a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond, “and wondered if “he will become my new best friend.” He continued to praise Putin throughout the campaign, comparing him favorably to Obama, hailing Russia as an ally in fighting ISIS, and downplaying any suggestion that Russia had behaved aggressively in the world. He also dismissed the assertion by U.S. intelligence officials that Russia is responsible for the computer hacking of Democratic party organizations and individuals. Trump called for closer relations with Russia and has surrounded himself with a team of advisers who have had financial ties to Russia. No wonder why Russia has been accused of hacking and tampering the US elections in favor of Trump but as there are no proofs of this it would be wrong to accuse someone. 

The list of his controversies is very long and rather interesting this is just the start. You can get a vague idea of how good a man he is with this comment” it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass.” I hope America is ready for what is coming.

God bless America.

“Do you realise that your statement will push so many people who struggle with their identity back into stuffy closets?”

India, largest democracy in the world doesn’t want to give some rights to a certain community that they deserve. America is on its way to be great again and we are stepping back from being great. LGBT community is always in the news or in the most controversial topics in India and many other countries in the world. But comments by the Bollywood director Karan Johar in a recent interview and some lines from his autobiography have again got the LGBT community and the director himself to the headlines.

The director have attempted in the past to bring topics like homosexuality to mainstream by movies Dostana(2008) which he produced in which two guys falsely claim to the landlord that they are gay in order to get the house for rent.

Karan Johar mentions in his book that he’ll be put to death if he openly declares his sexuality. For a long time fans were unaware of his sexuality and marriage as he was getting older and not getting married. People were assuming that Karan could be gay but he cleared that in his book. Our country have terrible law, article 377 of Indian Penal Code. The law was made by the British in 1860 which states,’Whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.’ Well, the British were smart enough to decriminalize homosexuality in 1960’s and here we are still fight over what two consenting adults do in private in a closed room which doesn’t do any harm to them or the society.

Laws like this doesn’t allow people to come out of the closet something similar happened to Karan Johar. It took so many years for him to openly discuss the topic with the society. Who knows that there are hundreds and thousands like him out there, crushed under the burden of expectations of the parents, family and society. Is this really making us the largest democracy of the world in reality?

Well, according to article 377, any type of unnatural sex is considered crime. This includes anal sex, oral sex and basically any any sex other than penile-vaginal sex. The question is who had decided what is natural and what is unnatural? The arguments made by the homophobes are, god made the laws of nature. Well, these people believe in many unnatural (fictional) things which they claim to be supernatural, so they don’t stand a chance in the debate.

LGBT community is fighting for equal rights, not special rights like marriage and equal status in society.

The Dummies’ Guide to Best Boyfriends! 10 Books You Must Read

 I love the characters from my favourite books more than I love most people in my life. And a huge chunk of my time is spent dreaming of meeting them in real life or even being a small part of their stories. Over time I have fallen in love with a lot of these fictional personas. The greatest perk of having a book boyfriend is that you can have as many of them as you want and others wouldn’t mind at all. My book boyfriends have had such deep effect on me, they also serve as reference standards for dating men. That’s not good though , because very few men live up to my heightened expectations that literature has given rise to. Anyways, here I present favourite book boyfriends.

1. THOMAS ‘TOM’ SAWYER- ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER BY MARK TWAIN
He was my first love. Definitely an unusual choice, but this wacky personification of mischief appealed just too strongly to my 10 year old self. All his adventurous escapades and bromance with Hucklebery Finn and Sid left me awestruck. Back then , all I wanted was to be a part of their gang and lives my days on the banks of Mississippi.

2. FRANK AND JOE HARDY- HARDY BOYS BY FRANKLIN.W.DIXON
I’m not really sure who I was more fond of- the shy and serious elder, Frank or the younger flirtatious stud, Joe. But both these American Teen Against Crime agents were equally admired by me for their bravery and intelligence.

3. JERVIS PENDLETON- DADDY LONG LEGS BY JEAN WEBSTERC
My ultimate teenage fantasy. Stuff that fairytales are made up of. A trustee of the orphanage offers to sponsor Judy Abbott’s higher studies and finances when she is asked to leave the orphanage on turning 18. He doesn’t disclose his identity though. Judy only catches a glimpse of his legs as he leaves and so she refers to him as , Daddy long legs. She regularly writes to him , describing her college life and studies. She spends her holidays at her sponsor’s country house where she meets , a young and charming Jervis Pendleton and they both fall in love. It is revealed in the end that Jervis Pendleton is none other than Daddy long legs.
A good many years of my teenage went into hoping that someday some hot millionaire would offer to sponsor my higher studies too. Sadly that stuff happens only in books. No Daddy long legs for me. *Sigh*

4. EDWARD CULLEN-THE TWILIGHT SAGA BY STEPHANIE MEYER
Oh c’mon u judgemental people! I know the story was lousy and lousier was the movie.
But this hot vampire was some awesome boyfriend material. Deliciously good looking, intense, strong ,loyal, romantic, protective and indulgent. Now don’t get confused people, I am not talking about Robert Pattinson.

5. THEODORE ‘TEDDY’ LAWRENCE- LITTLE WOMEN BY LOUISA MAY ALCOTT
This lovely novel about the lives of the March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy could have been the stage for one of the sweetest love stories ever if Teddy had married Jo instead of Amy. I could never really get over the tragedy and the author’s justification that it was best that Jo and Teddy remained friends only and that Amy was a more suitable spouse for him. It really broke my heart when those two didn’t end up together. I was so fond of Teddy and continue being so, that even bae got nicknamed Teddy. *wink*

6. Mr.DARCY- PRIDE AND PREJUDICE BY JANE AUSTEN
Oh you lucky bitch Elizabeth Bennett! You got to marry him! Mr.Fitzwilliam Darcy- the gentleman, the perfect marriage material. Alright, he was arrogant af. But that can easily be overlooked for how breathtakingly charming and romantic he was. Not to forget his wealthy status. No wonder all the ladies in the novel wanted him for themselves.

7. HEATHCLIFF-WUTHERING HEIGHTS BY EMILY BRONTE
Okay, one can never really be sure if Heathcliff was the hero or the villain of his own story. He is definitely one of the most complicated and mesmerizing characters ever created. It was due to his all consuming love and passion for Catherine and his subsequent separation from her that led him onto the path of vengeance, destroying both him and those around him. Heathcliff sure was a dark and malicious individual but that didn’t stop me from crushing over him.

8. JAIME MIRO-THE SANDS OF TIME BY SIDNEY SHELDON
Proclaimed a rebel by his people and a terrorist by the government, he was one passionate leader. And his intense love affair with escaped nun , Sister Megan , set against the backdrop of Spain , was pure delight. He was passionate about the cause he believed in and brave enough to risk his life for it. Not to mention, sexy af.

9. OLIVER BARETT-LOVE STORY BY ERICH SEGAL
“Love means not ever having to say you’re sorry”. How I love that novel and how I love you Ollie! . This is one love story which has made millions fall in love with it over decades. A story of how an arrogant, wealthy, Harvard jock, Oliver falls in love with his competitive classmate Jenny Cavilleri, marries her against his parent’s wishes and how they start their lives anew, from scratch, with nothing but each other for support. Even though it’s the most tragic story ever because Jenny dies in the end, but Oliver’s love for Jenny makes me believe in true love.

10. LORD SHIVA- THE SHIVA TRILOGY BY AMISH TRIPATHI
Agreed, he’s a God. But he wasn’t a God in The Shiva Trilogy. Amish Tripathi depicted him as a human , a warrior , who fought and struggled to win over evil to achieve the God status that he is given by people today. Amish’s Shiva is so cool, so full of swag and so charming, one cannot help wishing for a spouse like him. *No offense to religious folks*

So that was my list. It’s definitely not exhaustive. But I’ve had so many book boyfriends, it would be really troublesome listing them all here. Were any of your favourites in my list? If not, don’t mind, you all are welcome to share your feelings about your book boyfriends. So comment and let me know!!

You Will Not Dare to Say Homosexuality is Unnatural After Reading This

“Ohh you’re a gay? That’s disgusting dude. You should be afraid of god. don’t you know, god created man and woman not just man?”

Well, we all or many of us know about article 377 of INDIAN PENAL CODE which states,’Whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.’
The interesting fact about the law is, it was brought up by the British in 1860 and United Kingdom decriminalized homosexuality in 1967.

Image source : instinctmagazine.com

Lets talk about why people are so afraid of homosexuality? Is it really unnatural? Is it really a sin? Is GOD watching us and will judge us in the end?

Personally I am an atheist but if god really exist then I would think GOD is the greatest evil in the universe. Because it’s a mysterious being who lives in the sky, doesn’t get bothered by the starving children but is very much interested in what two consenting adults are doing inside a closed room. ARE YOU FUCKIN KIDDING ME?!

Here are some quotes from the best selling fictions (religious texts) in the world:

If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.
-Leviticus 20:13 (HOLY BIBLE)

The sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine,
-Timothy 1:10 (HOLY BIBLE)

lets move to Islam
“…For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds…. And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)” – An account that is borrowed from the Biblical story of Sodom. Muslim scholars through the centuries have interpreted the “rain of stones” on the town as meaning that homosexuals should be stoned, since no other reason is given for the people’s destruction. (Inexplicably, the story is also repeated in suras 15:74, 27:58 and 29:40). (HOLY QURAN)

“Of all the creatures in the world, will ye approach males, “And leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your mates? Nay, ye are a people transgressing”
(HOLY QURAN)

HINDUISM

well Hinduism doesn’t really say anything about homosexuality or transgender but we have our so called gurus who teach us that homosexuality is a ‘PAAP’.
But the things were different in ancient India. We have Naradmuni who fell into a pond and emerged as a woman and after that he gets the idea of MAYA. Another story is of lord shiva who bathed in yamuna to become a woman so that he could leela with lord krishna. There’s a story from kritiwas ramayan, two women used to make love in the absence of their husband and gave birth to a boneless kid.

1) People can not digest if someone is doing anything different from them or rest of the society. People who are HOMOPHOBIC takes religion as a weapon which includes god as a tool. These very people who say homosexuality is unnatural believe in a: virgin who gave birth to a boy.

2) The whole world was flooded and a 800years old guy and his family built an arc which carried one pair of all the animals and then they repopulated the world.

3) The World is 6000years old.

4) A Guy who used to ride a white horse with wings.

5) A 50 years old guy who married a 6 years old girl and had sex with her when she was 9.

6) A Guy who have an elephant head.

7) A Monkey man who lifted and carried a mountain from Himalayas to Sri Lanka while flying.

8) A War in which one army have a monkey army and other one of monsters. And the funny thing is monkeys won the war.

I think its enough that religion have much more unnatural things in it and should not worry about people’s choices.

Lets see what science has to say about this.

In 1974, the American Psychiatric Association declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder. Studies have proven that homosexuality is common in nature. More that 1500 species are known to show homosexual behavior including zebra, baboons, dolphins, sheep, buffalo, ducks, foxes, elephants, horses, elephants, gorillas, moose, house cats, pics, rats, swan, rabbits, lions to name a few.

Scientists studying homosexuality are focusing on three factors, genes, hormones and birth order. Studies have shown that when one of the twin is a homosexual, 70% of the time the other one is also a homosexual. This shows genes play a crucial role in determining the one’s sexuality. Its a same case of if a person is right or left handed. We don’t discriminate against or punish the left handed people.

ITS NOT UNNATURAL PEOPLE! YOUR THINKING IS! CHANGE NOW!!!

British Tortured Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose To Death! New Book Claims

As the mystery over the disappearance of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is yet to be resolved, a new book claimed that he did not die in a plane crash, but during interrogation and torture by the British at a prison in the former Soviet Union.

“Netaji didn’t die in the plane crash. It was a theory floated to facilitate his escape to Soviet Union. Japanese intelligence agencies had floated the theory so that Bose can safely escape to Soviet Union,” claimed Maj Gen G D Bakshi (retd), author of the book “Bose: The Indian Samurai – Netaji and the INA Military Assessment”.

He claimed with the help of the then Soviet Ambassador to Tokyo, Jacob Malik, Bose had been able to set up an embassy of the Azad Hind Government in Siberia.

Bakshi asserted that he has “irrefutable evidence” to prove that Netaji did not die in the plane crash in Taipei on 18 August, 1945.

“To escape German bombers During the World War II, the then Soviet government had shifted its base to Siberia. Bose, with the help of Jacob Malik, was able to set up an embassy in Russia.

“Bose had gone there after escaping from Japan. He had made three radio broadcasts from Siberia. This was when the British came to know that Bose had escaped to the Soviet Union,” he claimed.

“The British then approached the Soviet authorities and demanded that they be allowed to interrogate Bose. It was during interrogation that he was tortured to death,” Bakshi claimed.

In October, 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had met the family members of Netaji and announced that the government would declassify the files relating to the leader whose disappearance 70 years ago remains a mystery.

Last year, on Netaji’s 119th birth anniversary on 23 January, as many as 100 secret files were made public by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

While two commissions of inquiry had concluded that Netaji had died in a plane crash in Taipei on 18 August, 1945, a third probe panel, headed by Justice M K Mukherjee, had contested it and suggested that Bose was alive.

THANK YOU DHONI!

“And, Mahendra Singh Dhoni finishes in style!”

11

Image source : indiacom

How many times have we heard commentators yelling this sentence from the top of their voices? How many times have we seen Mahendra Singh Dhoni finish matches, making his team a victor?  How many times, we Indians, have been made to jump up with joy, seeing Captain Cool make extraordinary decisions to make India win? There is no wisdom in counting the number of times we have witnessed M. S. Dhoni performing miracles on the cricket ground. The achievements of Captain Cool are more than numerous, and it would take volumes to cover them up.

22

Image source : criketcountry.com

For a change, let me ask you now. . . How many times have you imagined a limited over cricket match without MSD since he became the captain of the team? I bet there would hardly be anyone who’d have had such a horrific imagination. There is hardly any cricket fan who is not upset – or, at least, shocked – to hear the news of M. S. Dhoni’s stepping down from the position of Captain of Indian Cricket team for limited overs.

Some sources also claim that, after stepping down from position of Captain, Dhoni may even seek retirement from One-Day Internationals as well. Some time back, when his biopic, M. S. Dhoni – The Untold Story, was released, some people had this idea that the captain may seek retirement now. But the majority of people still wanted – and hoped – MSD to bag the next world cup for India.

33

Image source : tamilchannel.in

The simplicity of a down-to-earth person and the required temperament of a sportsperson, along with his extraordinary decision-making skills made Dhoni achieve heights which most will only dream of achieving. His passion in his work, his hard-labour and his ability of not losing temper even in most unfavourable moments made him an ideal for many.

The only Indian captain after Kapil Dev to make India win the World Cup, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the first Indian wicketkeeper to effect five international dismissals in an inning against Australia – equalling Adam Gilchrist’s record. It would not be incorrect to state that M S has been the man to make and break records continually. He holds the record for highest runs scored by a wicketkeeper in an ODI. Let me iterate here that we cannot sum up the achievements of Captain Cool in a single article or episode, but it would take volumes—literally! M. S. Dhoni is the first Indian to hit ten sixes in an ODI and has made the record of scoring 120 runs in an ODI from boundaries and sixes alone.

44

Image source : oneindia.com

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not a name anymore; it is an epic, a heroic tale, an unmatched story. And there is no exaggeration here. M. S. Dhoni has to be a captain unlike any other Indian Cricket team has ever got. He made us all Indians proud with his myriad achievements, and made India shine with brilliance in the world of Cricket.

Today, when he has stepped down from Captaincy, we can only thank him and hope that he doesn’t seek retirement anytime soon – as the rumours are stating. Every cricket lover in general and every Indian cricket lover in particular is expecting to watch him set his hands free to bat without any worries as he doesn’t have to worry about making decisions anymore.

Dhoni has been the most successful captain in Indian Cricket team till date, and he will never be forgotten from the history of cricket.

A letter to Anxiety

Dear Anxiety,

I don’t exactly remember when I got introduced to you. I imagine it would have been a fragile moment in childhood, you passed by, stared at me and whispered, ‘Hey, I like this one.’ You crawled your way back and giggled and then, like a ghost, you lingered; followed me to every inch and corner of the world I touched. Were you little too when you met me first? I don’t think so. Rather you were youthful – vigorous and dedicated.

As I grew up till my teenage, I felt for a while that you were gone. Or maybe I found no time to notice if you were even there or not. All for good. And, I didn’t miss you at all. Trust me I didn’t. And then one day after I stepped into the construct of adulthood, you find me in a lonely dark corner and whisper again, ‘How have you been dear friend?’

I feel your presence. But you have changed, just like I did. While I became more vulnerable, you became more aggressive and brutal. You were no more a ghost who would follow me anymore. You were inside me. Or maybe I was inside you. Either Former or latter, it was not as pleasurable as it is usually when people are inside each other. Taking it to the next level, you became a master. You whipped me, edged me and laughed, seeing me in the pain you induced.

Your laughter – unheard and unknown by others – still echoes in my head when I find myself alone. I secretly mumble prayers to not to find you again at the next corner I turn to. But there you are – smart, sharp and evil. Maybe we have tried avoiding each other way too much. At least I have. Will it be any better if I don’t? If I confront you and shake hands. Will you be any gentler?

Let’s try it again and this time, I will embrace you. Accept you as me. And maybe then, it will all work out. All for good.

Oh Come On! Don’t be so surprised about Banglore Now! Here’s Why.

Dear people, who are really shocked at the molestation CCTV footage,
I mean, are you real that surprised? Are you really telling me that you never expected something like that to happen in Bangalore? Because sorry, but It is always happening!

I know a badass friend who was followed and harassed by a dude on the busy streets of Koramangala. It wasn’t 2 AM in the morning, she wasn’t wearing a skirt, she was just trying to buy some goddamn beer for herself. But apparently that was enough to trigger his hormones, I don’t blame him tho, my friend is hot af. But what happened next was downright scary. He was kicked out of the bar, for harassing my friend but that didn’t stop him, he continued to follow her once she had come out of the bar. Which resulted in him, getting a bottle of beer smashed on his head, while my friend ran for her life. I say Fair Enough to that!

Another quick story from 2013, my 20th birthday. Which was supposed to be the best and the most perfect 20th I had ever imagined it to be.
But then it turned out to be a nightmare. I remember it pretty vividly, it was just the four of us. Two of us were chicks and the other two were my guy friends from college.
We were walking towards our college parking lot, so my best friend could pick up her bike. But on our way there, we got Eggs thrown at us by some random drunk hooligans on the bike, on the occasion of “Holi” to be more specific.
Apparently we could’ve avoided the situation that was to follow, if I had refrained myself from screaming “Motherfucker” at them!
I mean, I am sorry I didn’t know, that it was completely acceptable to throw eggs at someone who took 3 hrs to dress up, to look pretty enough for her 20th birthday pictures.
Apparently that one slur was enough to hurt their ego, so much that they followed us to the parking lot just to “teach us a lesson.”
“What did you say back there?”
One of the dude asked while grabbing my cheeks real hard, all I could do was ask him to back the fuck off. The other dude turned around to start touching my best friend inappropriately.
When I asked him not to fucking think about doing anything to my friend, he slapped me and asked me what I was gonna do about it. So, obviously I had to punch his face to prove a point.
What were my guy friends doing?! They were doing all they could to save the situation but instead got beaten up real bad.
I screamed out for help, just to see a bunch of aunties staring at us from their main gates and going back inside their houses like heartless sons of bitches.
I honestly thought we were to be raped, until one guy in the group forced his other two friends to leave the place, because he realised that they had already created a scene there.
When they got on their bikes it was a sigh of relief but that came tumbling down when I saw how shook my best friend was.
I dragged her to our college bathroom to wash the raw eggs off our clothes while trying to calm her down from the shock.
For me the whole situation had happened too fast to even react but watching my friend break down was something I still feel guilty about. Maybe I shouldn’t have called that guy a Motherfucker. But then he would think it was okay to do something like that.
My point being, this shit is always happening! Stop being so fucking ignorant!
Also these fuck all articles should really stop with their headlines about how “Helpless” the woman was while being harassed. It’s called being in shock, we are always thinking about how it can never happen to us so when it does happen it takes us by fucking surprise.
Also ladies, get yourself a Gauss Gun made.
