That an association of “normal” people is livid and is planning to slam TISA with a law-suit:
“This upstart of TISA is violating our inalienable human right to laugh at stammerers and mute people! What do they mean? If we cant laugh at stammerers, mute, blind, deaf people, what is left to laugh at??”
A particular movie production house is gleefully rubbing their hands together and planning Golmaal 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 to the series of “n” for “n” number of Deepawalis in India and wherever Indian diaspora may be. Overseas rights have already been negotiated.
The association also have plans of launching a national political party, with aims to come to power through alliance with other like minded regional parties (Parties which want to laugh at regional complexions, accents, dress, customs and food etc.). Once in power, it plans to bring in necessary constitutional amendments. Right to laugh at disabilities will be enshrined among the core principles of Indian constitution.
The spokesperson of the association said: We will start a revolution of sorts. Everyone will be laughing and mocking everyone else. Total & bindaas democracy. There will be mirth and merriment in the air. Tourism will have a record growth of more than 15%. Foreigners who cant mock people back at home, will flock to India. There will be special “mocking malls” in all the big and small cities. People (and children) with any kind of disability or difference will be on display. A global change will come. Other nations will join and laugh at India. Indians will laugh at each other. This constant static of merriment emanating from earth, into outer space will attract even aliens. They too will come, join and laugh and mock..
Regarding movies, the spokesperson was quite clear: movies like Tare Zamin Par, Guzaarish etc. will be banned, because they spoil the taste of growing children. Movie like Golmaal 3 will receive state support and will be nominated for Oscars. There will be subsidised screening of movies like Golmaal 3 in the slums and other lagging regions- so that they catch up with rest of the country. Censor board will be dismantled. In a perfect democracy, where creativity is guaranteed full expression, what need is there for censor? The only censor board would be the “box office”. Whichever movie does good collection at box office will be nominated for Filmfare awards; and if they break records at box office by mocking disabled people- all the better: they will be nominated for Oscars.
People who stammer and are currently in wrong professions like doctors, nurses, teachers, IT, Engineering, Law, Administration, Defense etc. – will be relocated and retrained for the role they were truly born for: Public entertainment!! They will be accommodated in Bollywood, Ramleela committee, theater, Television (“mocking breaks” at prime time!) etc. They will provide much needed break from the tedium of daily life in a Shining India of 21st century.
Some one in a spirit of pure fun, will then, paraphrase the famous poet:
Where the mind is led downwards by unbridled freedom and ‘creativity’, into ever-sequeling Golmaal of cinematic brilliance & values..
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake…
Friends, no offense meant to anyone! This idea of writing a funny and imaginary piece came to me as I was browsing comments in various forum! Because some comments sounded like this: Dont tinker with our right to laugh at stammering! Dont tinker with our right to make films which laugh at stammering and mute people- because this is creativity, pure entertainment, simple fun etc.. I just took these lines a little further. Sorry, if it offends anyone..but I am trying to make a point. A difficult one. Hope it is clear.
