Dear Baba Bangali,

Couple of weeks ago we successfully raised our voice against a popular south-indian actress. The protest deeply cut through media while people stood up and took notice of our activities. After having announced our arrival we are now looking for another issue so that we are not skirted away by the media. We seek your blessings, and direction as we scout for the next celebrity-award-function.

Your ardent devotees,

Hindu Makkal Katchi (HMK)

Bhakta HMK,

First things first, I would like to thank you for the pics which are now safely stashed in my hard drive for future reference. I failed to see what you saw or maybe I zoomed too much, anyways I request all my bhaktas to save the images to gauge the threats to our so-called-culture. On my way to the ashram I heard some kids chant a few shlokas you call rhymes, I’d rather call them crimes! Take this for example.

Jack and Jill, wen Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after.
Up got Jack, and home did trot As fast as he could caper
He went to bed and bound his head
With vinegar and brown paper.

  • The poor little kids have been sent to fetch water from atop a hill, No parent would do that. It’s a clear cut case of exploitation and the chai/bajji-stall where they work ought to be shut down! Get the human rights commission(NHRC) to support you on child labor.
  • You could take out a protest against the corporation for not providing basic amenities and forcing the public to trek miles and fetch water from a hilltop. Add a pic of an old and feeble woman or a pregnant lady and extract extra leverage from the media!
  • Children are forced to visualize the image of a boy with a cracked skull and a girl rolling down the slope of a hill. These ghastly images will stay in their minds long after they are out of nursery and may give rise to violent tendencies. get a psychiatrist to back this theory!
  • The male protagonist here has completely ignored his female friend. Even at such a tender age kids are taught to ill-treat the girl child. As he runs home leaving the poor girl to tend to herself we clearly see the bias against the weaker sex. You might try getting feminists to unite and support your protest.
  • The boy seems to have gone to bed and this shows negligence on behalf of the parents. You might try voicing against poor parenting and how the concept of working parents harms the growth of their children and eke out a cultural angle to it as well.
  • The boy has used vinegar and brown paper to patch his broken skull, lack of awareness! You can protest against the NCERT for not imparting basic first-aid as part of school curriculum and goad the govt to make people aware like those polio adverts.

Ah! I could go on, but I guess these should keep you busy for a while, do feel free to visit me for darshan.

Sincerely,

Baba bangali..

  5. maxu:
    i’m old pa. what is this all about? some jokers protested against ms derrier of sivaji fame ? why?she’s punjabi and not tamil or what?
    please explain before you rap and rhyme.i’m confused here.


    me: maami, HMK alleged that the outfit worn by the starlet was offensive to the ‘tamizh kalacharam’. Now comparing this to her garb in the title track, left me amused!

  6. Whoa! you bet they are right.
    Sangakaala Tamil women never wore any blouses-they were bare breasted and in summer would annoint themselves with coolants like sandalwood to keep their breathing even. They don’t visit the dusty libraries on Tamil medieval history that stands behind Madhya Kailash.
    I am amazed at how Tamil men decide what their women must wear! Exemplary characters!


    me: no words, saashtaanga namaskaram!
