As we know all too well, Shah Rukh Khan is in Kashmir. He is in that room from Bobby. He loves Kashmir. He loves the local cuisine. He'd like more film crews from Bollywood to come there. And by going there, he has paid homage to his dad. "It was my father's life long dream to bring me here because his grandmother belonged to this place," said a nostalgic Shah Rukh as he addressed a media conference recently.
It was in Kashmir that SRK was shown the meaning of being lonely, to paraphrase a great piece of '90s poetry. "All alone on Eid on a thin winding road. Nowhere and everywhere,” a ponderous SRK pondered over Twitter. “Just gave myself a hug after a long time. Will celebrate with happy winds."
The thing to be alarmed about within that tweet is not that Shah Rukh hugged himself because he was lonely, but because he hugged himself after a long time. What does that even mean? Is this a regular thing? Is it a yoga thing? Did Priyanka teach him the yogic ways as preached to her by future Scientologist slash Burlesque performer Shahid Kapoor?
Anyway, Kashmir isn't the only thing happening in SRK's life. He is also being booked on charges that are very legit and not stupid at all. This social worker guy, Ravindra Brahme is trolling the interwebs for people who disrespect India's national honour. Fair enough. We're pretty sure the Wachowski brothers, now the Wachowski brother-sister, who indeed invented the Internet, had exactly this in mind when making a global communications service.
[image]Brahme has said this in a statement. "In SRK's case, I was surfing the net and on one website I found some pictures in which he was waving the Indian flag in Mumbai after India won the cricket World Cup on April 2, 2011. While waving the flag, he ignored the fact that saffron colour was at the bottom and the green colour was on top." This is terrible. How could SRK let himself be so happy for a quick second so that he forgot which way his flag is up?! Unacceptable. You know what else is unacceptable? Being a ridiculous human being. Someone should book Ravindra Brahme for that. In fact, India's constitution should add an act called the Prevention of Insult to Good Sense (Amendment) Act whenever their next national holiday is.
