Billu is the Medium
Billu, the movie starring SRK, Irfan Khan has got me thinking. Things have changed. The word ‘barber’ would be made an issue was beyond my imagination. But in the days we are living, it isn’t surprising.
The issue here is freedom and an environment for creativity. With all the ado about my country becoming a star among nations, I in the present environment think otherwise.
True progress or leadership comes from action taken on the ideas one has. Ideas are central to the leadership of any sort. In the western continent, citizen follows their heart and not their belly, as we do. Most are ok, some come out to be an extraordinary individual with ideas which are life-changing. An environment of freedom and creativity is the key.
Contrary to this, our freedom comes only come from the economic front and other freedoms flow from it. In sum, it feels like freedom is not free. Hence, when the name of a movie is changed for some reason or the other, only because it may hurt individuals from a certain profession, it shows that we are not proud to do what we do. What followed from this is misery.
