It was only yesterday that I was sitting in my posh car when an auto next to me blared political slogans for the upcoming elections. I mean if he put half the effort into actually saying yes to his passengers, I am sure he would have become rich enough to own a taxi stand by now. Watching the banners flap as his tiny three wheeler zoomed by, I re-read the text on my Oppo. You know that movie, Veere di Wedding? Right? Right! So the actress that played the character who always had a Delhi boy attitude to herself, now what’s her name?! Yeah, Swara Bhaskar! We all know how short tempered she can be on Twitter and the gutsy woman gives it back to her trolls. She is a well known critic of the BJP on social media and recently she made her presence known to a crowd out in support for CPI candidate Kanhaiya Kumar in Patna, Begusarai’s district. The woman is so passionate when it comes politics that she spent her birthday campaigning for her ‘rockstar’ as she calls him. For her Kanhaiya raises issues that concerns all of us ‘mango people’, such as unemployment, the rise of mob violence and the need to focus on issues that will better the lives of all Indians.
I can’t help but relate to being a rockstar myself, it’s a different thing that paparazzi does not always show up to photograph me but what can I do? Maybe I should stand for the elections too. I could bring the right amount of chutzpah to the Indian political scene however it is nice to see a Bollywood actress so fiercely in support of a candidate she believes in. An educated candidate at that too. I think we all deserve educated people in politics and I think it’s time for you and I to pull up our socks and vote people! Meow!
