Racism...seriously?

No matter how progressive we are technologically, whether we like to admit it or not, we're all racists. This may be shocking to believe, but all our racist feelings emerge from our own minds, and prejudices bequeathed from our elders.

Why are we racist? We have certain opinions, experiences, observations and family members which causes the growth of such feelings. The best example would be Chetan Bhagat's 2 states. That book was a narration of his life story, but unquestionably, there were elements of racism against South Indians, people who live in his own country. The other similar example is Chennai express. Both book and movie jeer at South Indians for not being like North Indians. Sad.

Sorry for not being loud, boisterous and shameless like you North Indians. Oops. I'm racist. Sue me.

The next time you go to a foreign country and someone makes racist comments about you, don't shut up. Retort with vigour, but if you face it in your own country, then all I can say is, even your middle finger won't do the trick.

I don't have a solution to this problem, but I would like to ask Rohit Shetty who is a South Indian, how he can be racist against himself, after watching Chennai express, I wondered if any other South Indian thought that.

So far, nobody has bothered to attack him, or sue either Bhagat or Shetty, just because they are on top of their game. The world is not going to change anytime soon.


 

Koffee with Karan? Seriously?


I would like to question the purpose of these shows, since we already have reality shows, which are not real. I would like to talk about one specific talk show in particular, which everyone seems to be obsessed with, as you've already deduced, 'Koffee with Karan'. Following in the footsteps of Ekta Kapoor, Karan Johar has altered the spelling 'coffee' with a 'K' just to attract attention. The show has an amazing PR and Advertising team, since the top celebrities always appear on his show. The fourth season has been receiving attention.

Not to mention, he also claims to be friends with every guest. Odd. But I suppose that when you're in the industry, longer than my current age, then you obviously make friends. But this time, Karan has received accolades for inviting guests who have never appeared on this show, or those who have been reluctant to show up. This includes A listers, so I suppose he should receive some credit for being a terrible show host.

From constantly using the word 'conjecture' to asking repetitive questions in the rapid fire around, and tossing about shrill sounding buzzers, Karan Johar has managed to make even the top most celebrities in the industries behave like children. I guess that's a talent too.

Surprisingly, the content of this show has become sexual, considering the fact that the men who appear on these shows are perverts and sexually frustrated, and the women are thrilled at receiving compliments about their scantily clad bodies, so why on earth would they complain, and why would the TV ratings drop?

This fourth season has invited new stars, who seem to be chummy with the allegedly gay host, who seems to have no problem discussing virginity, homosexuality and sexual innuendos at his age. Yet he manages to escape the tag of 'the dirty old man', since they're all friends.

He dresses like a scarecrow, with his olive coats, brown pants and clown like smile. The show is hardly entertaining, even when the most scandalous questions are asked. Most of the celebrities have displayed poor language skills, while some of them have put on fake accents, while the rest spend time adjusting their clothes and drinking coffee.

If I conducted a popularity contest, I wonder whether Bigg Boss would beat Koffee with Karan. Next time you're bored and horny, just switch to watching women's wrestling.
