Ban the protests/Protest against the Bans

India is a democracy.well thats what i have been hearing since i was a kid.but nowadays it seems its in a state of transition(if not already) to a rather pathetic example of democracy.

These days all you see in this country is either protests or ban or both.For example::
~Christian community started a protest for ban on 'da vinci code.
What i dun understand is where were these people when the book was released in India and it became best-seller.all those days it was in newspapers then they didnt think it was antichrist.
Then after 2 3 yrs when a movie is made based on that book is made by a movie crew consiting of majority of christians of a christian movie studio of a christian country and released in USA which is christian country and it goes on to top of the list.so when its time to release it in India , then our christian community got into rebellious mood and want to ban the film(read::fictional piece of entertainment).
i mean when the whole christian community in US doesnt have a problem with the book or movie , why few of our publicity seeking people have.and tell me will a stupid movie affect the sentiments of millions of people all over the world who believe in Jesus.
the only reason this movie should have been banned is cuz' its a boring movie by a long shot.its nowhere close to the book(which in itself is nothing but hype).

~ban against 'fanna'
this was another funny incident.this protest got me laughing so badly.so one fine day Aamir Khan arranged a press conference in which he says that if gov. is planning to move the farmers from their homes then gov. should undertake some measures for their re-hablitation.ok.so now suddenly some youth wing of guj. want to ban his film until he apologizes for hurting the sentiments of people of guj. com'on yaar i mean theres a limt.whatever happened to freedom of speech.

~ban against 'black friday','fire','girlfriend','omkara' et all....

i am mainly angry because i am unable to understand why the people of india and that too just few publicty seeking fucks have a problem with movies.movies are meant to be fictional(unless otherwise specified) to entertain people and to be taken with a pinch of salt.and then there is "Censor" board to take care of inappropriate material and assing corresponding certificates to those movies but no this is india we dun care what censor board does.if we dun like somethin we want a ban on that thing by gov.whatever happend to freedom of speech anyways.

~ban on "A" content on T.V
this is the latest one.wah.kya baat hai.now my dear fellow indians we cant watch 'savin private ryan',one of the best war flicks on our television sets because some coll prof. took 6000signatures and filed a P.I.L for a ban on transmission of adult content on tv. and surprisingly supreme court(which still can't give us a verdict on mumbai serial blasts of '92)delivers a judgement that now no 'U/A' and 'A' on TV.

i cant just understand whats this country commin to.what do they want to achive with all these things.i am so full of anger against these pricks and this song "Wake UP" by "rage against the machine" runnin in my headphones is adding fuel to that.

Why is this country so full of hyporicsy.we cant watch 'A' content on tv cuz' that will screw up the minds of young kids but what we can watch is Star News and Star plus n Zee etc. where we are made to see anurag gettin married some 4-5 times and news channels glorifyin dawood while addin songs from company movie in the background.and coverin all the sex scandals and all even the sancity of ghosts in villages and how they come to haunt the villagers when himeess bhai sings "jhalak dikhlaja". yea rite ! watching all this crap is perfectly fine but watchin a great award wining movie is not.

There are so many other such incidents which irritate me and make me wanna take a bloody pistol and put a bullet in the head of politicans and those activitists.

heres some lyrics of RATM.couldnt find a better way to end this ::
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Raise up your ear, I'll drop the style and clear
It's the beats and the lyrics they fear
The rage is relentless
We need a movement with a quickness
You are the witness of change
And to counteract
We gotta take the power back

-------------------------------------------------------------
No escape from the mass mind rape
Play it again jack and then rewind the tape
And then play it again and again and again
Until ya mind is locked in
Believin' all the lies that they're tellin' ya
Buyin' all the products that they're sellin' ya
They say jump and ya say how high
Ya brain-dead

Ya standin' in line
Believin' the lies
Ya bowin' down to the flag

-------------------------------------------------------------
Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!

Spoken: "How long? Not long, 'cause
         what you reap is what you sow."

Get the "Fizz" out !!

I was a ardent drinker of aerated drinks.i used to drink alot of cold-drinks in a day.used to sit in canteen and drink them on and on.would just need an excuse to drink one.i knew that it ain't good for health and all that but still i was like what diff would it make.

But nowadays seeing so much controversy surrounding cola standrads has got me goin.i mean if there is smoke there damn sure is fire.i aint blind to trust what gov. says or what cola MNC say.they treat india and africa as testing grounds for what they can't get away by doin in the US or UK.the gov. who gets it revenue is happy with whatever is the level of the colas in india.i cant understand is why the fuck they cant establish a set of standards for pesticide level in aerated drinks as well as for "mineral" water and vegetables.why cant gov. take a stand and have global standards in india as well. well in any case these drinks aint good for health but atleast they wont be extremly harmful.(i guess u get the point).

In the end it all comes back to money that gov. gets by MNC's and just keeps its mouth shut as usual and just protest on meaningless issues(another post esp. for tht topic).i just hope that dust settles down on this issue so till then mere coll canteen ka nimbu paani and juices n coffee ZINDABAD.
