I mean Manyata..
Now this one amused me no end. Actually Amar Singh often stands on my last remaining nerve. He’s such a hanger on. Such a wannabe. And so much the picture of the slimey politician – greasy, portly, balding, short and ugly.
I recall sometime ago he was up in arms because Amitabh Bachchan wasn’t given a front row seat at some place. This is before I started blogging or you’d have heard me explode. Why on earth does he have to be so smarmy and kiss Bollywood arse? Why can’t the Big B object if he feels hurt?
The latest is that Amar Singh has taken offence over Digvijay Singh not knowing who Manyata is. Now for a few seconds even I wondered who the hell Manyata was and what the furore was over. It’s amazing how everyone is expected to stay in touch with Bollywood gossip, the clandestine weddings, the frequent divorces and much more. And the best part is that Sanjay Dutt isn’t a politician yet so why are other politicians supposed to keep tabs on him?!
I have nothing to say about the state of politics in this country anyway. We’ve had the Big B, Shatrughan Sinha, Jaya Prada, Govinda, Smriti Irani, and many more people pulled in just for their mass appeal. But Sanjay Dutt by far has to be the worst. The man only got a break in films because of his father. Otherwise he has neither looks nor talent. Even now, unless he’s playing a dumb, crooked Munnabhai, he can barely pull off any other character. A druggie, a criminal, somebody with no experience or interest in the running of the country or civil society, and we want to vote for him? Why? And like Laloo, since he has criminal cases against him, he puts an equally unqualified wife up instead – this can only happen in our country! Errr… why?
How the hell is she in any way eligible to run for elections? I’m even willing (against my better judgment) to say its fine to let children of politicians inherit, simply because well, like the children of businessmen and filmstars you hope they’ve inherited some of the talent/knack/knowledge or simply absorbed something while growing up around it. But this kind of thing is the pits. Cash in on his Munnabhai appeal and fool the idiot fan into voting.
These are the times I’m grateful I don’t live close to a water body because then I’d just drown myself to get away from this nonsense. And oh, if I’m drowning, I’ll do you guys a favour and take the corpulent, ass-kissing Amar Singh with me.
And oh! Welcome to the new joint. Nothing much has changed. Just settle right back in and let’s chat.
PS: A comment left me this link which gives me more reason to dislike the man. His comment on women not taking their their husband’s surname as a sign of disrespect. And the whole comment about sisters never liking their brother’s wife? Really? Did he get that off a survey or is it just his terrible taste?
Argh. Sorry to be so incoherent but really, regressive and asinine is the only way to describe him.
