Height of selfishness
All the channels today are airing one news only
BIG B disturbed over the metro as it will be an intrusion to his privacy.
The second phase of Metro may pass near his bungalow so it may disturb his privacy
Last year it was the nightingale of India who had raised her voice against the flyover which was to pass near her flat
These big shots never raised their voices against other fly overs or the metro on different routes. They must not have given it a thought also that the new flyovers or rail lines can affect the privacy of other citizens also.
Why should they bother after all it doesn’t concern them.
I am sure if someone had raised his voice against such work these celebrities would have been the first ones to criticize those citizens in the name of development and their being selfish and putting self over the welfare of Lakhs.
But now when they are in those shoes they are feeling the pinch.
Have they ever given a thought on how thousands of poor/common/middle class people get effected when some new construction in the name of progress and development takes place
Has the Big B ever considered how the business of so many shopkeepers has come to a standstill because of the metro work going on in Mumbai?
He must have crossed the Shaan flyover at least once. Did he ever for a second pondered over how close the flyover runs near the balconies of nearby flats? One can easily peep inside the rooms of people.
Is it not intrusion on the privacy of common people?
Why should it bother him?
Moreover even now they have issues only against the new constructions near their house. They don’t and won’t mind if it is constructed somewhere else and the route is diverted.
Lakhs of gullible people treat these celebrities as their ideals and this is the example these ambassadors of various brands of our country are setting?
If they are so much bothered about their privacy they should go to some remote corner of the world where no one will take a look at them and they can secure their privacy.
But then they will not like it because it is the common man who has given them this status. Without the fans they are nothing.
It is like eating and having the cake both. They want the fans, they seek the adulation of the public but they want their privacy.
Endorsement by celebrities is a sure way of increasing the usage of consumer products. These celebrities are used to promote various products because the manufacturer knows that people will listen to them, they will treat them as their examples and will do what these people are doing
So won’t the common man follow these people and do the same.
Imagine what will happen when thousands of people will stand and stop various works of development in the name of intrusion on their privacy.
All these celebrities talk about country, patriotism, helping people. They motivate people to put the country, its progress /development/ welfare first.
but when it comes to practicing what they preach it is a totally different story.
if this is not being selfish ,self centered then what else will be????
