    True Viswa during the time of Apartheid regime in south Africa I kndew people who denounced racial differences based on colour but insisted on fair grooms and brides for their family members. What consenting people do in their private speaces should raise o one's hackles. I believe gay people must have their space in the society. As for politicians years of being a journalist has bred deep rooted cynicism about them in me.

    Hi Balajee,

    You really have an extra ordinary imagination....what a write up on SS. When this video hit wats app...all the folks in the group had a good laugh that SS probably wanted to give another shot to marriage, for what so ever reasons. After all the ruckus and stunts that he has been in picture last couple of months, this was definitely one of his folly acts I think, poor old SS. So many hits and views on YouTube, he is now known more than ever...

    And btw I thought the lady who stopped him was his wife, not party colleague. She seemed a little too annoyed like it mattered to her :)

    Scorpio, I wonder whether he did that to get some publicity. Of late he has been ignored even in his own party . No party or governmental posts. So it was probably something to satay in limelight. Also may be a minor gaffe like that he might have thought, would make him more endearing.

    Ha...ha..haaa.....! Whether Arnab got something to blabber about or not, you did not miss the opportunity to give us a chance for a hearty laugh at the expense of SS! Enjoyed reading it thoroughly!

    Malathi thanks. I am sure Arnab wouldn't have missed such a golden opportunity to blabber.

    Dear Balajee,

    As a highly Hindi-challenged person myself, I totally empathize with your Uncle and his many mis-speaking adventures out on town. As a child, I went to Mumbai once to visit my aunt and uncle. There was a huge market next to their apartments and I ventured out there on my own one evening equipped with 100 rupees and all of 2 Hindi words in my arsenal. Let's just say that I had many vendors pull their hair out that evening trying to understand me. :biglaugh

    Moving on to SS, I did watch that video when a friend showed it to me on her phone at a party last week. It was all folks talked about in this party. Poor SS, he is never going to be able to live this down. :rotfl

    Excellent narration Balajee. Totally enjoyed it. :thumbsup

    Meena south Indians i born and reared in the south but in the north of India for a living often speak a kind of Hindi dubbed by my dad as "Hyena Hindi" It was christened thus because they tend to pronounce the phrase woh hai na (He/she is there roughly) as woh hyena. Why blame only them? A German lady, a friend of m,ine married to an Indian, who is so good with Hindi that she had helped with her daughter's school lessons instead of her husband who was a bit more Hindi challenged, couldn't pronounce the letter J like most Germans As a result the J sound in Hindi became ch sound.. So instead of bhejna (to send) she always used to say "Bechna (to sell), with hilarious results. Once she said Beti ko Dhukan ko bechna hai (I must sell the daughter to the shop ) while she wanted to say the daughter must go to the shop. We had a tough time controlling our laughter.

    I get a sneaking suspicion that SS did it to get public attention for which he is always desperate.
