Since 1947, we've had neighbour problems – wars, escalations, failed talks, lost cricket matches – the list is endless. The latest barbaric beheading after a border intrusion is something that has woken us up to the realization that this problem might never go away. We’ve tried a hundred ways to live in peace with each other, but maybe peace is not meant to be?
Which is why we need to think out of the box, and come up with creative and funny ways to love our neighbour. Here are the top 5 we thought of; let us know your ideas in the Comments Section!
1. Make Aishwarya the External Affairs Minister: Salman Khurshid is many things – a distinguished lawyer, an accomplished politician, and a great writer. But he is not a drop-dead gorgeous woman.
"NOW let the peace talks begin..."
To counter the threat of Hina Rabbani Khar (it’s not easy to have a heated discussion with one so beautiful) we need Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan (post a weight-loss session) to become the External Affairs Minister. Only then will we get their diplomats to agree to what we want
2. Play 1000 Indo-Pak cricket matches a year: When India and Pakistan meet on the cricket field, everyone in either country within 100 miles of a TV set is glued to it. Have you ever heard of a terrorist attack during an Indo-Pak match? So all we have to do is ensure that these matches never end – play 3 matches a day without stopping. That way, India will stop losing so much; Pakistan can always be counted on to do the right thing now and then and throw the match
3. Make Bollywood have a bad year: Pakistan likes our movies as much as we do. All we need to do, then, is to make sure we have a year of terrible movies. We need Uday Chopra and Leander Paes to star in every movie, perhaps with Sherlyn Chopra as the female lead. One year of this, and Pakistan will throw their hands up and sue for peace. Problem is, we might all go crazy before that, too
4. Have a subcontinent Facebook: We need Mark Zuckerberg to create a local version of Facebook just for India and Pakistan. This will add a Pakistani friend for every Indian friend you add, and vice versa. We’ve always been told that people like us want peace on either side of the border, and that our rivalry has been kept alive only by the armies. Well, Facebook is the perfect way to find out. If nothing, at least the average beauty of our friends will go up a bit
5. Invest in 10 tons of Laxmanrekha: Laxmanrekha lets you create white lines to keep cockroaches at bay. The people who beheaded one of our soldiers on the LoC are nothing but cockroaches (or worse); drawing a Laxmanrekha on the Line of Control might keep them out. Nothing else has worked, anyway.
This weekend, a huge global blockbuster is releasing. No, not the Hobbit Part 2, why would you think that? We refer, of course, to a film which is sure to be a masterpiece, Sunny Leone’s second big Bollywood outing, the one and only 'Jackpot'
The Congress Party cannot be happy right now. After contesting in 5 states over the past few weeks, they are winning just one, the smallest of the bunch. In the others, their seat share stands at a pitiful, exam-failing 21%. Heads will roll, strategies will be debated, RaGa will emerge unscathed.
R...Rajkumar is bad. We don’t wish to spend too much time on using words to explain how bad it is because it is movies like this which prove that every second of your life is precious. Spending it on R...Rajkumar is a huge mistake. Right from the inexplicable use of fullstops in the title to the insanity that went into writing the dialogues, R...Rajkumar had us thinking about all the bad things that happened in our lives, and how they actually become good when compared to whatever it was that Prabhu Dheva was attempting.
As the economy keeps inflating, so do Bollywood collections. In no time, they’ll each be making the equivalent of the cost of one onion! We predict that the upcoming Dhoom 3 will make 300 crore. Here’s why:
Following elections in Delhi yesterday, exit polls point to the fact that the Congress is going to lose, and pretty badly. What a surprise. Not. Considering the Congress’ performance over the past few months, we’re sure pretty much ANYONE could have beaten them. Here are a few examples:
It's December, and that means we are in the holy month when Rajinikanth was born. On December 12, the man will turn 63, and his trillions of fans are
This week, we are gearing up to watch Prabhu Dheva’s next outing on the silver screen, ‘R…Rajkumar’ (RR). Starring Shahid Kapoor, who hasn’t exactly had the best career run in the past few years, and Sonakshi Sinha, the film looks promising. Here are a few tips for you to make sure you’re well-prepared for the film:
