I was having this conversation with a girl yesterday about the Sanjay Dutt thing .. she says he looks sooo innocent .. now . dear lady .. he is the guy who is charged with having links with the D gang .. remember .. ?? He is charged with helping the Memons with Arms .. remember ?? But leaving all that aside .. He should be let go because he ‘looks’ innocent ?? .. And for those who say he is a ‘reformed’ man .. don’t base your arguments on the movies he does .. Munnabhai was a MOVIE .. a fiction .. And wasn’t there an audio tape leak some couple of years back that showed that he still had links with dawood ??
I am yet to come across a girl who likes a member of the Indian cricket team for his cricket-ing skills .. All the Dravid fans, dhoni followers, Yuvraj admirers, Sachin devotees amongst the ladies are there because of their looks .. I mean, even at the height of their careers, The Kaifs and Nehras never had even a fraction of the following amongst the females as all the above mentioned ones have even during injury or off seasons .. Can someone explain this to me ??
And lets not just blame the girls for this kind of behaviour .. We guys have been just as superficial .. Wonder why Steffi Graf was always more popular than Monica Seles or why Sharapova still is the hot favourite and crowd puller at tournaments and not Sabatini .. ??
I still remember discussing Sania Mirza during college .. the conversation started and ended with her looks .. even as she slipped in her rankings to rock bottom.
We try so hard to be not superficial .. and yet, we so obviously .. ARE !!
PS -> I am discovering a new song on my play list everyday now .. thanks to the unrate-all thing in WMP .. Aerosmith Rocks !! Dream On ..
PS_2-> My orkut scrapbook has turned into a fmaily reunion party .. Almost everyday I find some cousin and or aunt pinging me on orkut .. I think I better start taking care of what I post about now .. this post was the first step in that direction 😛
