[I'm posting this just to while away time; as usual, I have nothing else to say]
A couple of days ago, there was an interview on NDTV Profit featuring some intellectual whose name they didn’t care to display in those 5 minutes I watched. I think they were discussing about morality and such forgotten things. The only reason I watched it was that the caption said something about Gandhi. But this intellectual swept me off my feet by signing off with “The point is you must be good. And you shouldn’t be ashamed about being good.”
In The Godfather, Don Corleone tells Virgil Sollozzo, “How a man makes his living is not my concern.” I am a great believer in dignity of labour (or how else can I respect myself?). However, what I am unable to stomach is how low people can stoop to earn money and fame. And they have the audacity to call it art!
Of course, I am talking about Mallika Sherawat – somehow, I can’t keep away from the girls -;) She just manages to stay in the news for all the wrong reasons. I don’t know if she is the person in the latest MMS (I swear I haven’t seen it!) but who cares to defend a woman of such low morals?
Tamil, that beautiful language, has a not-so-nice word for expressing disapproval, dislike and shame at another’s actions. The word is “chi” and it has no meaning, but is used occasionally in the above scenarios.
So, here’s to Mallika, a big CHI.
