Was it a Rang De Basanti Effect?

I had watched RDB few weeks back and i must say it's one of the best contemporary movies i have seen.It triggers some of sensitive corners of the heart and mind of today's generation.
And this movie is also proving that Hindi movies can have great impact on Indian citizens in good and in bad ways, both:)

After the release of this movie, people in Delhi have raised there voice against the Jessica Lal murder case exactly in the Rang De basanti style by lighting candle in front of India Gate:)

And seems while acting in this movie even the actors have got energized:). These days we see Aamir and the entire gang raising voice againt the national issues like Naramada case more strongly (though ignorantly)

These are all OK as long as people are picking up the good aspects of the movie and copying it.But...

But yesterday, the police had lathi charged the young doctors who were silently protesting for a cause:S
This lathi charge was also in the Rang De basanti style. Oh boy!:S:S

It's fine if people get influenced by a movie to do heroic acts, but people are following the movie even for villaneous acts:S That's sad

One of the channels had asked people's opinion on the Police behaviour , and few of them had stated that 'We were reminded of Jalianwala Bagh massacre by seeing the police beating the doctors'
Now commmmmmon guys, tell the truth. Were you reminded of Jalianwala bagh of 1919, or Jalianwala bagh of Rang de basanti;)
Atleast i was reminded of the Jalianwala Bagh of RDG only:), where the director compares the General Dyre of those Days and politicians of these days in the same weighing balance.
Oops, that doens't mean i am trying to say Arjun singh is like General Dyre;)

AAh..this movie has silently raised lot of stroms,and is really trying to the awaken the nation.And amidst all this look who is calmly and quietly doing his job: The director of the movie Rakesh Omprakash Mehra;)
He is now preparing silently for his next venture which he says is a comedy

Rakesh Mehar ji, if you continue like this you will become the Mahatma Gandhi of 21st century;) The only difference is he used his khadi rolls and you are using your film rolls. Just kidding:)
But then i think the director is following exactly what he has tried to ultimately convey in his movie
' Change the society, by being a part of the society, not outside it'. Else you would get killed like the RDB heroes'

The Fear factor show on Sony...Sometimes Very Craaaaazy!

A new show by name 'Fear factor' has been started in Sony channel recently. This is a said to be a ditto copy of the english serial 'The fear factor' in one of the english channels.

The show is pretty good in lot of ways because the stunts performed by people are intersting but what I just HATE about this it makes people to keep crazy things in the mouth and sometimes eat as well.

This includes a big bowl of worms, ostrich eggs, any meat and so many more like this . Yuk Yuk:S:S

I find this sometimes indecent, sometimes unethical, sometimes hurting and all the times crazy.

I donno why Amala and Menaka Gandhi have not resisted this for using animal skin and animal remains for these silly and unnecessary purposes!

In one of the serials i saw a pure vegetarian struggling to take that goat meat in mouth, but still for those 10 Lakhs that they were giving him, he foolishly gave a try and then finally gave up saying ' I am a vegetarian so i can't'
And the host was still consistenly trying to persuade him to try it.
This was totally hurting. Shouldn't the serial be respecting people's basic habits atleast!

In today's serial they have asked people to drink a full mug of ostrich egg yolk. People struggled like anything and i don't think anyone could drink completely.

Fear factor guys claim that they ensure full protection of the particiapants. They can give this protection as long as it's external physical protection, but how can they ensure for internal physical protection. What if by eating all this the person's liver, intestines and their stomach fail? What if something happens to them after eating such weird things?

This is really crazy! Atleast i am finding it unnecesary and crazy.
