| On Bhagat Singh|
We've been getting a lot of web traffic looking
for a three year old article on Bhagat Singh -- it's a top
match on the Google search result.
Apparently the Bollywood is making a movie on him.
"Finally the Bollywood can make a movie without a rape scene, and vulgar dancing" my friend exclaimed.
"Are you kidding me?
To depict that Bhagat Singh did not engage in them, the Bollywood
people would have to show them!" was my answer. Of course, I
could be wrong, given my prejudice against Indian movies.
We'll see shortly, won't we?
Anyway, Bhagat Singh (along with Chandrashekhar Azad) has been
my childhood hero. I was born on March 23rd, the death
anniversary of Bhagat Singh, and was named after him (Vikas Singh).
I sometimes get angry messages saying that by not showing
Bhagat Singh as a Sikh (with turban and beard),
I am being anti-Sikh. I try to explain to them
matters of copyright and content acquisition, and how we
can only publish content (stories or pictures) that we developed.
