With all respect to shahrukh khan and the team of My name is khan, I would like to declare that I am not against anything said by Mr. Khan in recent past. Neither is my intension to agree or disagree with certain “regional” political parties in this post.

But I was browsing through the internet for sone info and feed about the controversy, when I came across certain forum, where many of the members requested the general public to “support” Shahrukh and my name is khan. And I started thinking whether these people have likened shahrukh to a malnourished ¬†child in the interiors of India, and the film, my name is khan, is a fund raiser event for the benefit of the same.

Support?? Whats there to support in it? Or rather, why the use of the word support here? Should “support” not be used for something really worth supporting. If shahrukh is not supported, it doesn’t mean that he is going to loose out on money or fame. His life will continue, so will the life of these political “leaders”. Eventually they kiss and make up. Its only the general public who looses all the energies behind such dramas.

So if you want to really support, try supporting some cause.

  1. Hmm interesting point that . I would think that in this case it is about supporting a cause , a cause very Dear to many people’s hearts — the cause of defeating fascist ideologies and mindsets (narrow mindedness and regional and parochial chauvinism),, this is how Nazism originated if you would go back and read history . ” those who refuse to learn from history are condemned to repeat it ” — that is a memorable quote, but i fail to recolect who had used it first.

    would surely love to read your rejoinder to this point …..

  2. Barking dogs seldom bite. And hitler did not bark..

  3. @ Nilesh : i dunno if that is true , because if you go through hitler’s speeches , he was a rabble rouser par excellence and a demagogue of the first order. since conditons in germany were also amenable , he could stir up passions and that is how he came to capture power, and then goaded the people onto supporting his nefarious designs ….
