Pirate Guy, I saw you have not posted any single technical question neither you have replied to anything technical say in question/answer section. All messages are in non-technical either posted in General Indian Topics or Soapbox or in Lounge. I have a question out of curiosity. How did you landed up in Codeproject ?
Another one observation, I see there are many post related to Modi and related event/circumstance and this is strange that you have started up those thread as well!!!
How are you managing to do that in Codeproject ? This is quite surprising. I agree that neither codeproject manadates to be technical nor a sin being full non-technical, but could not resist myself asking this to you.
I am sorry in advance in any case I hurt you, that is not I intended.
I am in a school (say 12th class). When I was studying from 5th standard till 11th, I saw "some" guys making lewd comments on girls. Me and my friends did not raise any voices and kept silent. But few teachers reprimanded "those" boys . Now I see the same and raise my voice and commented that school's atmosphere is not good for gals since some teachers were silent because they are relatives/friends of other teachers. The Principal is also not commenting on it publicly in school.
This gave "those" guys more confidence to make more trouble
So now is it a crime to raise my voice now because I was silent in the past? Does, me being silent in the past means I cannot raise it now. Is it really a nice excuse to say that "it happened in the past", why are you raising your concern now. Teachers ask me to leave the school because I have tarnished its image. I just spoke the truth . Its better to be late than never?
Now please read the same scenario with the following replacement
School -> India
"some" -> Right wing/ RSS members
Teacher -> Minsters/bhakts
relative -> belong to same party/ affiliation
Principal -> PM
Me -> Any person who says -ve about India
Too much of good is bad,mix some evil in it
I believe you have portrayed it in best way. True, if in the past something didnt happen does not imply that same thing would never happen. Just feeling sad when someone in the other thread tried to "opine" that "there was same society from 1947 ... blah blah blah ..", why to take everything reference from some old age ? I mean this is so silly !!
We wanted to see better India, I am still hopeful but I must agree that disappointment are creeping in. Forget about expectation, I personally feel "Ab rahne de, Arindam tum kuch jyada hi bhabuk ho gaye they aache din ke liye"(Just leave it Arindam, you seem to be more thoughtful emotional regarding Good days).
N.B: While I am posting this one of my friend, who sats beside me, saw this and offered me a Good Day (biscuits), so please be assured I am very happy now.
Our previous generation (meaning our parents generation) are very matured enough in dealing with loose talk people like these. They SIMPLY NEGLECTED them. Once these crooks do not receive any support or publicity they themselves mended, if not perished.
Now with 24x7 media and social platform every one are more hungry to gain prime time coverage. And they want to sensationalize trivial nonsense. To keep them relevant in public domain they are using these cheap tricks.
Unless people elect right people to power this situation continues. The only difference is we will be bashing one party (which is in power) every 5 years.
But this is catch-22. I voted to Party A because I am sick of Party B. Now when Party A is giving me the same sickness what I can do? I guess, I should have short term memory loss (like People of few states) and give chance to both parties (or to all existing Gathbandhans') to make us equally sick
However, would it be nice to escalate the matter to the Principal while the class-monitor is still investigating the issue? Shouldn't it something like class-monitor -> class teacher -> the Principal?
Also, if there were similar matters happened in the past in other classes where girls were beating up the boys and no one cared. It wasn't addressed firmly neither at the class-monitor level nor at the class-teacher or the Principal level and yet the school management and people were okay with that. Why are they expecting something different in this particular case?
Granted, you stated the facts. But what if there were some children from your residing area* who were looking forward to join the school in the next year? What would be the effect? Won't your statements affect their decision especially when your statement is well-considered among them given that you have always topped your class*? Wouldn't it have been nice if you said something positive about your school and motivated them to join it especially when your school seriously needs them (their donation)?
Class-monitor -> local authorities (police, etc)
Class-teacher -> Chief Minister of the state
Students looking forward to join your school -> potential investors abroad looking forward investing in India.
You being topper of the class -> Aamir Khan
Class teacher, class monitors are most ignorant/sleeping. Principal is away most of the time (He might be doing something good, but still he stays away of the school most of time except Elective Council meeting )
I neither support a fight now, neither I am happy that it happened in the past. I am protesting now, I would do in future as well, whoever is fighting, irrespecting of who is at the receiving end. I am not only expect something different now, I want that "something different" to be in future as well.
If a new aspiring student "relies" more on a statement of a "mere" student instead of looking past history of the school, policy then you must know that student is not meant for that school, not even for any school whatsoever. Do you ever take a comment of single entity/person/student as "critical" decision making point ? Come on ! I am sure you are not. That mere student is not in management of the school/policy making right
And understand, one need to put very hard work to be topper amongst peers, not everybody can be topper. Why someone would be "rediculed"/singled out only because he is topper ? That ability should go to his favour or could be ignored.
this is not Twitter, but really? No one here cares what Aamir Khan had to say? Or have you "tolerated" his stupid statement already?
I am not going to troll him here, but for shame!
Now if any of you like to defend his side, I would be more than happy to "enlighten" you.
Ok, that's a lot of text for me to read at the moment. I will post my views on each of your comments. Meanwhile have a look at this[^] comment for what I have to say.
I will be replying to the messages on Friday. Meanwhile, parliament's winter session is starting from tomorrow, so those who think this instance has got nothing to do with politics, keep an eye on the session. I am sure you will be "astonished".
Everything is conspiracy, I tell you, either for promoting his upcoming movie or of some political motivation - I vote for the former as well as the latter.
He is an ambassador of the Incredible India campaign and this statement just highlights his real views. I really expect the Government to strip him down of the ambassador the campaign. Also, I won't be surprised if his upcoming movie gets banned in majority of states (which is likely to happen now) and he comes back again and comments something idiotic.
But for now, I would be the happiest Indian to sponsor a one-way ticket for him and his family to Pakistan or Syria or any other country he chooses to go to.
So this moron says anything against your country and all you do is to tolerate him just for being "tolerant" in his view?
All I am saying is, if anyone's not happy with the Modi government, say it upfront and criticise Modi. Why are you painting a fake image of the country in front of the world? Consider this - Modi has been trying hard to attract foreign companies and residents to invest in India. But if these kinds of news keep coming out, what would be its impact on his efforts?
And even after this if you say I am "intolerant", I really feel sorry for you.
It seems you do watch Chhota Bheem after all, don't you?
From Where did Modi comes into all this
Ok now, please don't tell me this "intolerance" thing has nothing to do with politics (and I am not taking anyone's side (Congress or BJP)).
He Should have started some Brokerage house instead. Prime ministers job is something beyond
I am not an expert in finance, but I think direct investment still beats it (?). Granted, it's not generally what a Prime Minister does, at least someone from the Government should be doing it, right? I don't think anyone else from the current Government has got this ability. If all those deals Modi has done during all his foreign tours actually get implemented successfully, that will be huge success for India, IMHO.
doesn't know the practical difficulty in executing it
Speaking from the promises he did in the election campaigns - yes.
All the foreign tours will of course have MOU detailing what can be done. But in reality only 1 % gets fulfilled.
Maybe true, but these numbers[^] certainly don't lie, do they? Again, I have no idea what those were earlier and how exactly are they related to Modi's foreign tours, but these do look promising, don't they?
One clear view here : There is freedom of speech. If someone has problem with Amir khan,why don't they had the same with Yogi Adityanath,Sadhvi Prachi,Manoharlal Khattar, P.B. Acharya, Azam Khan etc? Why their statements don't receive such response?
Apart from that, if someone is not feeling safe in India and expressed his views,whats wrong with that? Who are these morons uninstalling snapdeal app to advise someone? Let him decide what to do. His 'choice', he 'may'. The real intolerance is there AFTER Amir's statement.

Modi has nothing to do with this statement or the response after statement. He tried to point out the statements of some really cheap politicians. The problem is, Modi or seniors have no control over those people. It's fact.

If the above mentioned stupids keep giving poor statements,what would be its impact on his efforts?
This time, i'm really unable to understand why people don't have problem with all those bastards but Amir khan? I mean why these double standards? This situation is terrible.
Some people say 'We have made you star. Most of the audience is Hindu. We spend our HARD EARNED money on your movies bla bla bla'. It seems like these people need Psychiatrist. I wanted to ask them : Who asked you to make him star? Who forced them to spend money on his movie? Amir never came to anyone to request "Bhai please meri movie dekhle i wanna be a star".
I don't know about the Intolerance,but the no of stupids is increasing.
Don't take anything in this message personally.
