Since the time c has been into writing, she has very well proved that ‘Pen is mightier than a sword’. Every time she writes something, it becomes a sensational remark hitting the right spot of the desired audiences. This actor turned writer very well knows how to present some bold yet very logical statements targeting certain sections of the society.
Twinkle Khanna has always had a witty, satirical take on the happenings across the world. She writes as a guest columnist on Sunday for Times of India and explicitly gives her piece of mind on daily humdrum to the matters of national importance and national concerns.
As you all know, Supreme Court of India had recently passed a ruling making it mandatory for all the cinema halls across India to play the national anthem before the movie screenings begins. If this wasn’t in itself an enough blatant imposition, they went on to make it mandatory for the audience present in the cinema hall to stand in honour of the national anthem.
In her recent article, Twinkle Khanna made a witty remark at the same and said that she was one of those women who would get extremely emotional on hearing the national anthem. She even recalled in this article that she’d visit the Wagah Border and used to have the ultimate experience of screaming her lungs out with slogans such as Bharat Mata Ki Jai and Jai Hind. But in the next few lines, she drew a very comic analogy and explained that patriotism is not about standing up in the cinema halls while the national anthem is playing. She wrote, “But I still can’t wrap my head around how and why I am obliged to feel patriotic when I have merely booked tickets for ‘Befikre’, and am about to see Ranveer Singh in his tight red underwear.”
We think this couldn’t have been explained any better. What are your views? Let us know in the comment section.
