Item Bomb

Rakhi Sawant created a stir of sorts by announcing that she would be championing the cause of freedom of expression after the recent site banning controversy. When asked whether this was just another publicity stunt, she had this to say,
"Ever since Aamir took up the Narmada cause, i have been looking for issues to raise. It is only now that i have got something meaty enough to hold my attention. It is not my intention to blow anything out of proportion, but some things need to be done to lift the morale of the poor bloggers who have been affected. In any case i dont have any realeases planned soon, so why would i want any cheap publicity? "
When asked how she was qualified to tackle such a relatively geeky issue like blogs, she responded thus,
"It has nothing to do with technology. It is the principle of the whole thing. I have been avictim of the authorities curtailing my freedom of expression, whether its on screen or on stage. And so i feel i am well qualified to do these kind of exposes before the public."
When asked whether she knew common blogger concepts like RSS feeds, she quickly shot back,
"Of course, they are one of the principal reasons why i am supporting the cause. It was the same guys who were feeding the media during my stage show which caused so much of a controversy. They should stick to politics and not do moral policing."
She terminated the interview abruptly when a reporter asked whether she preferred Type Pad,
"This is the problem with media people. You give them some freedom, and they start asking you personal questions. It is none of your business what......"

until next time, only item, no bomb!!

manuscrypts said...

satchit: all of it..hehe... and would love to start it.. in fact after i finished, i felt it had a very onion feel to it.. at least the concept... like kavya would say, i had internalised too much unconsciously ;).. am planning to do more...

silverine said...

The disclaimer was the sucker punch :P

Stone said...

Hilarious!!! made my Monday!! :-)
...and wat a personal question by the reporter :-)) :-))

satchit said...

starting an indian version of the onion sounds like a gr8 idea. with most mainstream newspapers turning into tabloids these days, at least this one would be fun to read. thinking of a name now. hmm...
