He has had a bad marriage. I won’t talk about it. Lets forgive him.
He has had a surrogate baby. Who am I to poke my nose in?
Thousands of orphan girls are straying in India. This is my concern.
Aamir could have adopted a “girl child” to at least secure the future of a girl! He did not. He rented a womb in the desire to have his “own” child. I have no business even there.
Suddenly I stump across a show of SJ where he talks about Female Infanticide. Now I have a problem.Serious one!!
A man who claims to “hurt where it matters the most” could not introspect his own mind and soul and secure future for a girl who would have been equally proud to have a social-messiah like Aamir as her dad,instead going for a surrogate baby just to believe in the “quality of blood” decides the status of a man. Hypocrisy in the mean process got a new name called Aamir Khan!
Role Models lead by example not by sitting on a cosy sofa and acting as if they are hurt by females being killed. Aamir does this all so as to create a good-will for himself. The “solution” intended is so obscure and so far away from reality that it is hilarious. The “problem” discussed has no novelty to it considering it is a grave issue. There is no desire to penetrate the soul. There is just an ambition to create further impression of himself. Personal gains are at stake here. You won’t see Aamir ever advocating about any stuff after SJ, I bet that. This man never ever voiced again his opinion after Fanaa released in context of Narmada Bachao Aandolan. This man wont ever march again with candle since RDB is long lost in past. This man wont attend any wedding now as SJ is already on air. This man won’t sit with Anna anymore as Anna effect is waving away. This man won’t be himself ever. He will always try projecting himself as “different”, knowing very little all the time what is different. To add to his fanatics will proclaim all other “star’s” work as “bought” but his superficial work as masterpiece. If they know what chappal he wears to bathroom, that is none of my business but if they claim that those chappals smell of roses, I wont spare a thought before making them smell that.
I frankly ask you all a question. The purpose of spreading awareness regards Female Infanticide is absolutely unnecessary. Ask me why? Because the “secrecy” with which it is done itself is a living testimony to the fact that it is already known to be an evil. The problem is not in “system” or in “the existing laws”..the problem is in a long socio-cultural background. Right from mythology to present date, males in Indian community have been given preference. It is another fact that woman have enjoyed respect and displayed valour too. But the requirement of a male to shoulder the family is a gift of our own culture.Woman not being given equal rights to be born,to work,to breathe is a result of our own mindset that is myopic enough to not see the obvious. A show on a couch with a select people can just expose the already known problem but can never change the “mindset”. You cannot escape this obvious fact by saying “Atleast someone started this” –because a social messiah like Aamir was never expected to touch the elementary notes, he was deemed to strike a forceful impact of a horror story under blankets. What he has done is to chose a less experimental path, infact a mundane path that caters to his image more than the “real” problem. This results in a serious disharmony between the purpose “intended” and the purpose “achieved”.
The show in spite of all this was never meant to be criticized. Why? How do you criticize even a superficial show on a serious grave matter. This is the safest root to debut on TV where the element of “criticism” and “experiment”..both are equally minimized. Thus the show in spite of stirring just fails to take the stir to a whorl. A look at other star’s charity stuffs will show how they actually bring smile on people’s faces and how they never speak about it. How they are ridiculed for buying even charity but how they have proudly maintained a dignified silence. Real work may not have a publicity but a show like Sj definitely had one,that too a misleading one!
Not disappointed as such, but hugely nonchalant about it now. It is a superficial show,a shallow show lacking the knack to deliver! Dil par nahi lagi yaar. Ye baat dil par nahi lagi.!!Tags: Aamir Khan Satyamev Jayate
