Yesterday in Channel 9 (which is a Bangalore based English news channel) was featuring a call-in program where the viewers could ask questions to a gentleman from Sri Ramasena.
Caller #1 “Why are you saying that we should not celebrate Valentines Day?”
Gentleman “Why do you want to celebrate love on only one day? Why can’t you celebrate 365 days?”
Caller #1 “Why do we then sir celebrate Independence Day on one day?”
Gentleman visibly pissed off! “What are you taaking man, that is what we are say , we need to celebrate all day. Why are we celebrating one day?”
Caller #1 verbally confused hangs up.
Caller #2 “Sir, what is your definition of Indian culture”
Gentleman “Respecting Indian culture is Indian culture. Not pub culture. Indian culture is respect”
Caller #2 “Okay, so do you think beating up girls is Indian culture?”
Gentleman “What are you talking? We apolized ! WE APOLIZED ! So what are you saying madam. What you saying? WHAT DO YOU THINK?”
Caller #2 “You say you are a social worker, don’t you think there are much more important issues to handle than silly issues like Valentines Day?”
Gentleman “We are helping people, the other day a man took a girl and stayed for 2 months. Our sevaks married that girl after wards. We are doing social work!”
Caller #2 did not have words, I can’t blame her.
Caller #3 an elderly gentleman in his 50’s “Who do you think you are to control our girls?. WHO GAVE YOU THE RIGHT?? …….”
Gentleman from sena “ WHO DO YOU THINK ….”
Caller #3 “WHO DO ….”
Gentleman “MIND YOUR LANG….”
And it went on and on.
I guess this program was recorded as the phone number to call them was not displayed on the screen.
If I had a chance I would have called them and my conversation would go like this.
Me “Hi I am from Bangalore, I have a question”
Gentleman from sena “Go ahead ask me”
Me “Not for you sir, for the channel and the producers of this show”
Me “ Why do you want to air something of this irrelevance and put a man who claims himself as the moral god on the show who talk nothing to talk but bullshit?”
Gentleman “WHO DO YOU THINK YOU……………”
