ARTISTES CROON IN UNISON
At Delhi, yesterday, over 900 artistes’ crooned in unison, to urge people to vote for BJP and statements have been issued to this effect. Among those who have issued the joint statement are Shankar Mahadevan, Triloki Nath Mishra, Koena Mitra, Anuradha Paudwal and Hans Raj Hans. The Joint statement reflected the trending mood, “It is our firm conviction that the continuance of Government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is the need of the hour”.
More than 900 artistes’ including Pandit Jasraj, Vivek Oberoi, Rita Ganguli on Wednesday issued a statement asking people to vote for the BJP and said the country needs a, “majbooth Sarkar” not a “Majboor Sarkar”.This has also been said inunited voices, to face challenges like terrorism before all of us. The artistes appealed to the people to cast their vote without any pressure and prejudice.
In furtherance, the joint statement also said, “during the last five years, India has seen a Government which delivered, CORRUPTION-FREE, GOOD GOVERNANCE and DEVELOPMENT ORIENTED ADMINISTRATION”. This statement comes after a week, where more than 600 theatre personalities, including who is who, bigwigs like Amol Palekar, Naseeruddin Shah, Girish Karnad and Usha Ganguli, had signed a letter asking people to “Vote BJP and its allies” OUT OF POWER, arguing that the idea of India and its Constitution are under threat. The letter which was issued on last Thursday evening in 12 languages on the Artist Unite India Website, said the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections are the “most critical in the history” of the Country.
In the last couple of weeks, multiple artistes’ bodies – film makers, actors, writers – have asked people to “vote hatred out of power”. In a series of joint statements, numerous intellectuals and artistes have stepped away from political neutrality and stuck their necks out to take a position. These leftists minded filmmakers, over a hundred of them from across India, issued a joint statement urging voters to “do everything in their capacity to keep this harmful regime from coming back to power” and asked them to choose “a government that respects the Constitution of India, protects our freedom of speech and expression, refrains from all kinds of censorship”. This followed as a very fitting reply, to what was done earlier, an exercise by the theatre artistes, directors, writers.
Over 200 writers appealed to voters to reject “HATE POLITICS”, quoting “Vote out the division of our people, vote out inequality, vote against violence, intimidation and censorship. This is the only way we can vote for an India that renews the promises made by our Constitution. This is why we appeal to all citizens to vote for a diverse and equal India, carried by the Indian Cultural Forum.
The latest being about 600 theatre artistes, in a joint statement said, “the seeds of hatred have entered our food, prayers and festivals. We, theatre practitioners of India, appeal to the people of India, to help safeguard the Constitution and our syncretic, secular ethos. We appeal to our fellow citizens to vote for love, compassion, equality, social justice, to defeat the forces of darkness and barbarism. Our appeal – vote bigotry, hatred, apathy, out of power. To vote against BJP and its allies. Vote to empower the weakest, protect liberty, protect the environment, foster scientific thinking. Vote for secular, democratic, inclusive India. Vote for the freedom to dream. Vote wisely”.
It is people like, Nasureeddin Shah, Girish karnad, Arundhathi Roy, Romila Thapar, and the like-minded people who have joined the ANTI-MODI, bandwagon and it is no surprise at all. They are the ones who created ripples by acting and directing, very off track movies and plays in the garb of being the most liberal, free-minded, leftists oriented intellectuals. What is not acceptable to the society is always accepted by them and they live in accordance to their thinking and thought process.
Their intellectual thinking would always never see the good that is being done by this Government for the past five years. Their thinking is very corrupt and they would favour the leftists wing to appease their intellect. It is they who are secular, anti-religion, tradition, culture, rituals, atheists, fake equality, social justice, love darkness and barbarism. They are the ones who really create a wedge and division in our society by just being what, who, they are, being intolerant towards development, improvement in the Country.
Nothing can fail them, excepting their intellectual thinking and they can create utter confusion, darkness and barbarism in the society, as their lives are being lived in a free style, with no norms or boundaries as to how life has to be lived. They think that anything that binds people together are all restrictions, as it opposes their very ideology. There is nothing wrong in being free-minded, liberal person, but the very basic human tendency should be there to, LIVE AND LET LIVE AND NOT LIVE ALONE.
No matter how much ever opposition comes from all corners, the past five years have been glorious and people who have realised this fact. Some artistes with left wing thinking and their statements, cannot change what people feel. It is they, who are scared of their own failures of their think-tank, that is being voiced all too suddenly. The whole nation knows what they are all made up of. Few peoples’ negative statements cannot change the course of thinking of the people of India.
It is right to say that these left wing thinking people are always good at thinking only and when things are to be done, they leave a lot to be desired. They would realise this fact eventually, as to how much their thinking has really worked for them or for the country? Being an artiste is different from playing the field in politics. Saying is easier always than doing.
MODI JI HAS ALWAYS ARISEN DESPITE, OPPOSITION, HURDLES, DOUBTING THOMASES, QUESTIONING HIS EACH AND EVERY SCHEMES, POLICIES, MOVES MADE, AS THEY CANNOT SEE THINGS WITH PLAIN GLASSES THE IMPROVMENTS MADE IN INDIA AND AT PAR WITH THE INTERNATIONAL LEVEL, THEY SEE THINGS WITH TAINTED GLASSES!!!!
LIKES OF GIRISH KARNAD AND OTHER LEFTISTS, GOD SAVE THEM, FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY SAY AND DO!!!!
RAMESH, ADVOCATE & SOCIAL ACTIVIST.
