Valiant effort of Delhi Police of arresting Mika Singh goes in vain!

Film celebrities getting away cheaply from the grab of law is now becoming a common thing in India. 

First DABANGG actor Salman Khan’s sentence by session court for five year imprisonment in hit and run case in 2002 was suspended and the actor given bail in a hush-hush. Now there is news of controversial singer Mika Singh being granted bail in the case of slapping a dignified doctor publicly in a musical concert!! 

On Thursday morning the electronic media was ablaze with the sensation news of the arrest of famous singer Mika Singh for indulging in the rowdy act of slapping a respected doctor in a concert organised by the Delhi Ophthalmological Society (DOS) at the Delhi Pusa Institute Mela Ground in Inderpuri.

However what began as a valiant effort of Delhi Police of arresting the arrogant singer became tame by the afternoon because Mika Singh within couple of hours was a free man as he was granted bail thanks to his celebrity status. 

What may stun readers is that when a leading TV news channel asked Mika’s elder brother Deler Mehndi about his reaction on the arrest of Mika Singh, defending his brother Mika said, “With news channels flashing the news of Mika Singh being arrested is enough to punish Mika and the doctor should take back his complaint.” 

Annoyed at Deler Mehndi’s insensitive declaration, Dr. Shrikant, the victim of Mika’s rude assault and an ophthalmologist posted at Ambedkar Hospital retorted, “If a common man does an indecent act he is put behind bars and if celebrities slap respected citizens publically they can go scot free!”

“I have filled the case against Mika Singh precisely to teach celebrities a lesson. I will continue to fight the case and wish he should be banned from singing and conducting shows,” he asserted. 

What has angered Dr. Shrikant more is that to defend himself; Mika Singh has alleged that the Dr. Shrikant had intentionally created the ruckus at the stage to garner cheap publicity exploiting his star status. 

Lambasting such cheap allegations Dr. Shrikant said, “I am more renowned and revered than the film stars and I do need such cheap publicity.”

More brave heart citizens like Dr. Shrikant are the need of the hour to teach these heady and arrogant celebrities a lesson. 

But alas until and unless the law is the slave of the powerful and mighty such revolutions can only be a dream. What say?

Is BJP Govt. trying to appease Muslims by bestowing Bharat Ratna Award on Dilip Kumar?

After receiving multiple flaks from the Muslim quarters on different issues like 'ghar wapsi' 'love jihad' and ‘beef ban’ propaganda by the affiliates of BJP like RSS Bajran Dal and others the BJP government has plans to appease the Muslim. 

In a bid to win the Muslim community’s confidence, Narendra Modi, the shrewd and crafty Prime Minster of India has purposed to bestow Bharat Ratna award, national’s highest civilian honor to thespian Dilip Kumar. 

According to speculation the central government agencies are gathering routine information on 93-year-old Dilip Kumar. A high ranking official from the centre on condition of anonymity said, “Before conferring any Padma award or Bharat Ratna, routine information about leading personalities from different walks of life is gathered.” 

“It’s understood that Dilip Kumar may be conferred the Bharat Ratna for the current year 2015”, he quipped.

Dilip Kumar, whose real name is Mohammad Yusuf Khan is regarded as the ‘God of Acting’ and has influenced many generation of actors from Amitabh Bachchan to Shah Rukh Khan to Kamal Hassan down South Indian Cinema.

What’s more Dilip Kumar holds the rare Guinness World Record for winning the maximum number of awards by an Indian actor. He has received many awards throughout his career, including 8 Filmfare Best Actor awards and 19 Filmfare nominations. He was honoured with the Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award in 1993.

Dilip Kumar also holds the distinction of being member of Rajya Sabha, the upper house of Indian parliament for a term and was even appointed Sheriff of Mumbai (an honorary position) in 1980. 

In addition he has been awarded the Indian government’s civilian awards like Padma Bhushan in 1991, the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1994 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015. 

However the Bharat Ratna award was long overdue to the thespian and should have been awarded by the late 90’s but due to dirty politics he was denied the honor. But as the English proverb goes –Better late than never! 

Interestingly for the year 2015 already two legends have been conferred Bharat Ratna viz. Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Former BJP Prime Minister of India and Madan Mohan Malaviya, Educationist and politician (President of Indian National Congress (INC). If Dilip Kumar wins he will be the third receipt in 2015.
