India's Seven Other Dalits!

Aamir Khan touched the untouchability issue in the July 8 episode of Satyamev Jayate.

Doosra was touched too. In fact so touched that wasted precious little time to compile a list of India's Seven Other Dalits, sneered at and ridiculed by their snooty peers.

1. Literature Dalit = Chetan Bhagat;
2. Music Dalit = Himesh Reshammiya;
3. Tennis Dalit = Leander Paes;
4. Fashion Dalit = Govinda;
5. Political Dalit = Amar Singh;
6. Food Dalit, ok Dalit Food = Rahul Gandhi;
7. Intellectual Dalit = Suhel Seth

(P.S. I'm a great admirer of the Aamir Khan show. The guy could have done any other show but chose this one. If it brings positive change even to one life, it's job well done. At the same time, my admiration should not come in the way of some harmless fun. Hope Aamir and his fans agree.)

Good one Som..I am not sure about Reshmiya though...sometimes one is happy not to touch him!! Don't know who is Suhel Sheth (sorry, haven't kept in touch with current Indian scenario). Carry on, mate!

Som said...

Deep, thanks. Maybe Reshammiya the singer, for he has composed some decent stuff. On Suhel Seth, you've not missed anything :)

The Designer Rakhi you gift them is the symbol of the immortal unity of the two hearts, the flowers are the silent communicators of your warmth to them. That’s the magical touch you can have for your Rakhi special gifts, and just a click onto www.rakhiworldwide.com/rakhigifts/send_rakhi_to_Gurgaon.asp will let you get them in flash.

I'm not particularly fond of Amir but agree about both your opinion of the show, and that it should not come in the way of some harmless fun.

Can I add:

Cricket Dalit: Sreesanth (That's the case in Kerala anyway.)

It's really an amazing feel to receive gifts. But receiving something from your siblings on Rakhi is really a special feel. The relation between you and your siblings is always the special one, and RakhiWorldWide.com stands tall on it. Visit www.rakhiworldwide.com/rakhigifts/send_rakhi_to_Hyderabad.asp to result it.

chetan Bhagat?

For a literature Dalit, why not try a new novel about cricket, Guile and Spin?
