Miss De on the New Sexual Revolution

Why doesn't she stick to doing what she does best - writing bitchy stories about social butterflies and their sexcapades? I had rather have my daily dose of feminism and relationship advice out of a hermetically sealed can (as and when that becomes available) than listen to her inanities. Too bad its already done, but you go ahead read it...the chuckles are guaranteed.

All ye descpicable Indian women living-in with boyfriends straighten up. Grab the man (if The Man is not available grab any man) and head to the nearest altar and then go on to live blisfully in your shoshurbari. Look and learn from your counterpart - the fallen Western woman! Go, run, quick!! time (biological and otherwise) is running out.

And all ye gay men with boyfriends do the same too. The whole gay marriage thing will never work out, so stop dreaming, dump the boyfriend and get a wife (yes, Mummy ji would prefer one with a X chromosome).

And all ye single Indian men/women in the west ( straight/gay or otherwise)...hold on till Miss De attends the next high society do. She will have some golden words for you too..wait for your turn dahlings, let her help those in the desh first and then she will start with the NRI's ...promise..mwauah..mwauah!

Gee, Anyesha, I don;t know how you feel about it, but I am a very strong proponent of the OLD traditions including marriage. I just do not understand these new age people who talk about arranged marriages and stuff .... it will lead to the downfall of society.... at this rate these infidels will start throwing mud at our centuries old traditions: traditions followed by Draupadi, Kunti, Shakuntala .... and of Gandharva Vivah! I think in keeping with Traditions India should provide legal and social protections for Gandharva Vivah...

In the meantiime, I am off following Arjuna's lead into "agyatvas" ... where's my pink saree...

Anyesha said...

Oh yes, yes, yes!! our centuries old culture, how could I forget? Let me do penance in that secluded spot in the jungle right away. I might even waylay a sexy sadhu to give me a boon!!! Yipeee!!

And you make sure Theron dutifully follows you into the jungle with the Gulabi Aaina in tow!

All this stuff about Gandharv Vivah and Theron running into the woods with a Gulabi Ayina... all I know is that I am shocked. Growing up in India I always considered SD as this extremely liscentious sex-crazed woman... and lo and behold, now she is giving long lectures on the sanctity of the Indian marriage... right up there with Whats-his-face Dobson. Either I'm habging off the left edge or the center has moved way way way right!

its obvious from all this that you all are not from Bombay. Oh my dear bong friends, its Shobhaa De and Shobhaa De's only business (or dhandha as they say) is being Shobhaa De...Her book is beside the point.what is in the book is even more irrelevant...shobhaa De is somewhat like Madonna (ok much less famous but famous in India nevertheless) and everybody knows - Madonna isn't good at anything except being Madonna.
Read this (on her Penguin Books Bio page) - "At Parmeshwar Godrej and Richard Gere's AIDS relief event 'A Time for Heroes India', 51 of India's top movie and music celebrities and models manned stalls. Shobhaa De was on that list despite being neither a movie or music star nor a model but famous enough to be on the list of elite de la elite."

She is obviously a FBF ( Famous for Being Famous). But I was annoyed that people in some apartment complex organise a show (which she graces with her presence and that stupid tabloid of a newspaper called Telegraph covers even more graciously) and go on to ask her for parenting advice. Its really like asking Madonna or Angleina Jolie for advice. If she wants to be Shobhaa De (she could add as many a's she wants after her name) she should just stick to being a socialite and blow air kisses with a glass of champagne in her hand.

so Anoop is saying that S-de is 'dhande-wali' ...gawd, and all when S-de is trying to change her name to Sati-Savitri De!!!

Btw, I HATE the word verification!

Anyesha said...

Ayush: Shoo...no gandi baat here. And also no fomenting trouble or troubling Anoop...behave children. And yes, the word verification is a nuinsance...I keep getting the word wrong. But what to do otherwise crazy people will start commenting.

Anyesha - "Its really like asking Madonna or Angleina Jolie for advice.."
FYI, Angelina Jolie is a UN Ambassador and the media folks actually do ask her "advice" and "opinions" on everything from world hunger to refugee problems in Afganistan. (Just browse through the BBC website and you will get an idea)

Ayush - "so Anoop is saying that S-de is 'dhande-wali' ...gawd, and all when S-de is trying to change her name to Sati-Savitri De!!!"

Lets face it - We all are dhandhe-walas and dhandhe-walis...and whats wrong with that anyway?...there was a Filipino movie in which one of the girls says - "Everyone is a whore these days...teachers, actors..." - and yeah, thats true...whats wrong with that. Making money is a good thing (Remember Gordon Gekko said - Greed is good)...of course, you should also respect the rule of law but otherwise, making money is a good thing.

Anyway, Merry Christmas guys.
