Big B Blogs!!! Bunderful!! Sorry could not resist the temptation to alliterate ‘the Big B’ 🙂
I have read most of AB’s blogs and quite simply .. I am impressed. The impeccable choice of words, control over his language, no imminent show of disrespect although make no mistake ..he is mincing no words when he wants to hit out… yet never does he offend.
I wonder if that has to do with the fact that he is a Libran ( mostly balanced folks) or that he is savvy enough to have an enviable vocabulary coupled with the intelligence to pick correctly. A mix of both I would think.
Talking of ‘pick’ ..He has ‘chun chun ke’ given it to media which has wronged him. ..the TOI, electronic channels, gossip magazines and what have you. But honestly, his veraciousness comes across strongly. Not just that, you begin to actually symapathise with him..and I had to catch myself from getting depressed.
C’mon…I said to meself.. one doesnt feel sorry for AB!!! He has everything in the world going for him!! What more can a man ask for??
But If one were to ask him , it would seem ..plenty, yet!! He seems quite miserable and hurt. That got me to think. Every man has a cross to bear. We only imagine the grass to be greener on the other side..but only the wearer knows where the shoe pinches.
If that be the case why do we run after temporary material things? Nothing comes for free.Ask AB!!The price tag may be one which demands a piece of your life and peace of your mind!!
So..from today no cribbing.. I am gonna have a smile all over my face at all times. Even in the presence of those who are Devil Incarnate!! All I have to do is remember..AB can also be miserable.They didnt spare him either!!
Just thinking aloud.. Will he ever run out of material that bespeaks of how the press has harangued his views and mutilated his words?? An ill deserved democratic press is the bane of a developing society or rather an impediment to anything that suggests positive progress.
I concur.. he has all the right to defend his name and his integrity in the face of spineless journalists and gossippers who leave him no rest. Who use him to spice up their pages and their bytes, add life to their lifeless tele stories uncaringly, ruthlessly and viciously. Looks like the media is getting it back now..tables have turned and HOW!! I love it!
Does this automatically translate into MSm now going legit? Will they now print/publish/telecast only genuine stuff? Will sensationalism get to be thing of the past? Will blackmailing publishers now find themselves left lonely, forlorn, loveless and powerless in their built on blood and tears ( others) Ivory Tower?
Hmm..looks like it. Somebody commented on my blog a while back. Anyone who has a keyboard is a publisher. Now AB has one and soon all celebrities will follow and then the game is over..wow!!
reminds me of the line ‘ I cried because I had no shoes till I saw a child who had no feet”
