Usually I keep looking at my trainer and the dashboard on my treadmill impatiently to get off it, but this morning I was hooked on to it because of a news flash that was being shown on this music channel...'Sachin nominated to RS by the Government'...'Sonia Gandhi met Sachin at her residence'... My first reaction...What the hell?? A Sportsperson who was not considered for Bharat Ratna for his achievement in cricket is being nominated to RS for the same reason!! These Congress strategies are getting on to my nerves.
Coming back home when I read a little more about all this I was really proud of Sachin to be the first active sportsperson to be nominated to RS and it will also give me another reason to remember Mrs. Patil who approved this nomination under Article 80, other than her expensive hobbies :D :D. Logged into Twitter and OMG!!! there was fury of emotions. Some liking it, some furiously opposing it and few others even more furiously opposing the opposition :). Well everybody has a opinion, isn't it?? One twitter account was even created this morning just to circulate messages to #unfollowSachin!! that account later in the day got suspended. But really Unfollow Sachin?? He cares two hoots about it people!! He must be sitting in his apartment watching all this BS and sipping masala chai with some biscuit. What I was not able to understand is, what is it that people were angry about? Sachin's nomination or Sonia Gandhi's meeting?? Would it be OK for these people if Sachin was nominated by some other party than the UPA? No, I mean we don't really have a clean, non-corrupt party do we?? And moreover hellooo aren't these the same people who were disappointed for him not getting a Bharat Ratna and Dr. Batra getting a Padma Shri??
If this is just the question of Mrs. Sonia Gandhi meeting Sachin and Sachin being nominated by the UPA government, then its okay people you can relax. Yes Sachin would be a Congress supported candidate but no where till this time have I read about Sachin announcing his association with any political party. A nominated member can associate himself with a political party provided he gives a declaration of the same within six months. But yes I will be equally disappointed if he chooses Congress...but for that matter any political party !!
So all the gadha-dhari Bheems out there...Shanti Shanti... we will have to wait and watch if your God can go the corrupt way !!!!
