    What is this? Is this some kind of Joke? Are you really serious and you really believe in what your are saying and asking?

    What about divorce with mutual consent? Who is being 'violent' with who in that case?!

    I am really tempted to close this thread but would be interesting to see some more comments on this! Sounds like it's going to be a fun thread.

    This celebrity thing sucks, Salman got planted hair on his bald head, it becomes headline.
    A new dress at Caan film festival by some "dumb bahu" of ABC is specially covered on the news channels.
    ABC declares himself "a farmer" & saves tax of worth of billions.
    Babies are dying road sides because they can't have enough milk. The worst fact is We are so habitual to this common sight that's not even worth of mentioning anywhere. This world is of psychopaths!! Aamir/Salman/ABC are only here to collect like pigs do, more & more. If they are somebody's teachers, saviors & harbingers of "Satya", good luck:dancing.

    The day is not far off, if the current practice of female foeticide continues, the sex ratio will be so skewed that the male will have to pay dowry. The girls can become very choosy to select the groom. Those who cannot pay the dowry will have to content themselves by sharing a wife and even worse will be when rapes will be a daily feature. God forbid.

    I hope better sense prevails among the population.

    Amitabh Bachchan pays farmers' debt - Times Of India

    Mr.Bachchan paid off debts of 90 farmers to the tune of Rs.30 lakhs. Something that the government should do. While our minister's are busy making money on farmer's suicides, a celebrity pays their debts from his pocket.

    Think why such news is not covered by our media?

    why does one need to even think about that! maybe aamir has done injustice to his kids in a way but (not to his wife cos the divorce was with mutual consent) He is a very good father and takes care of his kids really well. remember having read something about that recently.

    but thats not the point here. Even if one has done something wrong does that take away the right from him to work for betterment of the society/country??

    Were there not any other good things in the episode/s for you to pick up other than this what you noticed. I personally found all the episodes very informative and it is such information that every citizen of this country should know!

    It depends on ones intention about what you want to see. If you want to close your eyes to all this then you would certainly try and critisize it.

    One hindi line comes to the mind!
    jise phool chahiye wo kachre ke dher mein bhi usko dhoodh leta hai .. yahan aap to phoolon ke dher mein kachra dhoondh rahe hain!!
    trans: one who wants a flower, will find it even in a huge garbage dump.. here you are trying to find garbage in a sea of flowers

    I haven't seen one episode till date but once we had group discussion on this. In north India & especially in Haryana, the villages are not some randomly gathering people like in cities. The villages are generally formed of clans which ultimately belong to the same family tree generations ago. Some villages find their original ancestors 1000-1200 yrs back. Every village is considered a single family. I mean all girls n boys living in a village are actually brothers & sisters with authentic records. That why marriages are forbidden for the boy & girl, who belong to the same village.

    There have been a few exceptions in recent times (i don't know what to call it) & the couples were banished, they should actually!l Pls don't get it wrong, this is not inter-cast marriage. No body has a problem with inter-cast here. This is the 2nd most prosperous state for per capita income after Punjab. Aamir was criticizing this without even looking anything into history of the phenomenon & why people adopts the theory here. ay i say, he was promoting inter-family marriage instead of inter-cast because of his lame research on the phenomenon. Some unaware couple may be knotted but for the people having complete record of their ancestors, i don't know what to say!! He is touching such sensitive topics without doing any real time research into the phenomenon. You know like surfing India-times.com & catch the most spicy news of the day. I see 1000s of such evolved researchers everyday who think there is nothing beyond them, I don't even notice them:mrgreen:.

    So, according to you it's alright to kill a guy for marrying someone!!!

    You are talking about 1200 years back!!! And saying that it's one family? Then what about our ancestors - aryan and dravids?

    Aryans were Europeans who migrated into North India (Aryans were actually Phoenicians) around 10000 yrs back (Refer Wikipedia). It's not marrying someone that's the issue, it's marrying inside the family.
    People have married blondes here, they are living happily & no one is killing them.
    There are traditions of inter-family marriages in many communities/religions.
    They are right in their own way so no one should challenge their view.
    It's ditto here.

    It is very well covered by the media, that's why you know this.
    Huh?? He could very well pay debts of all the farmers.
    That's what celebrities do for alternate careers like politics n bla bla.
    He saved a hell lot of tax by declaring himself farmer.
    He is famous for the Bo-Force defense deal too:mrgreen:
    It's not a problem with Amitabh, that was just an eg. what society prefers.
    The fight is not outside, it's inside us.
    Dancers can only dance & make others dance too:dancing, far far away from resolution!

    Without watching a show you comment on it authoritatively?

    Ridiculous! What authentic records are there to show all boys & girls from the same village are brother's & sister's? If they are, why are they not brought up that way? If they feel like brother's & sister's then they wouldn't fall in love.

    They were not banished. They were killed.

    If it was well covered then how come you don't know about this? It's odd you know who is related to whom from 1200 years back but don't know something that happened 2 months back!

    Yes, he can pay off debts of all the farmer's. He could have chosen not to. Point is that he chose to do it without much media hype. Give credit where it's due.

    One politician like Sharad Pawar can pay off entire debts of India. Why doesn't he do it?

    Nothing illegal about it. Tax planning is different from tax evasion. Tax planning is legal, evasion is illegal. Law gives us provisions to use to save taxes. If someone uses that to his advantage you can't blame them. Make your tax laws transparent. As simple as that.

    If you calculate the net value, you will realise he has paid much more then saved. Don't forget, the number of people employed directly or indirectly by him who also pay taxes. As a simple example, after Amitabh Bachchan became the brand ambassador of Gujarat and promoted tourism, there was a spike in tourist's visiting that state. Those people spent money in Gujarat, which resulted in the resident's there making more money along with the state in the form of indirect taxes. What about the innumerable super hit movies that he gave on which the government collected entertainment tax? That money went in the pockets of some minister. When ABCL went under, he worked day and night to pay off all debts.

    Again, he has been cleared of all charges recently.
