More publicity please...

A woman who is into her late thirties and desirous of attracting attention whichever way possible. Sensing that her Bollywood stint is almost over, so she must look for greener pastures abroad. Would Hollywood be okay? Oh, yeah! But the sad thing is, in Hollywood real acting talent matters. Not "just acting" won't do. But why get disheartened? Channel 4's Big Brother has brought plenty of pounds to her kitty. Whether Indians or Britishers were hurt by the kind of 'competitition' she faced inside the celebrated confines of Big Brother does not bother her. What matters to this lady is nothing but the highly-held values of Mother India; fortitude and forgiving mentality.

So, what she did? She ingeniously attributed all the Big Brother hullaballoo to a "communication gap". Dear friend, think again, if people throws tantrums on you (*ed words, including) never mind; when enlightenment dawns on you in the form of realising what you stand to gain (or lose), you can excuse your opponents by invoking the much-cliched "communication gap". That will create a win-win situation for all those concerned. Here, Channel 4, Shilpa, Jade and all those associated with the Big Brother won in one way or another.

Now, Richard Gere's kissing. Dont think of it as vulgar. He was brought up in a different culture and what wrong he did:he just kissed and that's it. Just kissed! Why make a furore over that. Gere, the celebrity Buddhist, has been grossly misunderstood. Grow up, Indian media, to the ways and customs of western world! It's a shame that every time a well-meaning lady has been put to such troubles so as to come up with a well-drafted excuse for the sake of hers and others!
