All allegations against Padmavati are baseless
All objections and protests against the film Padmavati that it is hurting the pride of women and presenting a distorted history etc, are baseless and frivolous suggestion to form a committee with historians, the filmmaker, the protesters and the censor board to take a decision has no meaning. In the month of January this year also there were ugly protests on the set of the film. It is a fact that Bollywood films are mostly fictiol -sometimes based on real life incidents and historical facts. They do quite a good research on the subject, but even then, there are chances of having some flaws. Rightly, they never claim their movies to be a real story from history. Any objection can be sorted out, but resorting to violence does not justify their actions, hence it should be condemned by everyone. The fil authority lies with Censor Board only if it finds any objections, those scenes can be rectified. When it is filly passed by the Censor Board no one should raise any objection and resort to violence. A film is a piece of art which involves lots of time, hard work of lots people and money to make one. To criticize is an easy task that too on flimsy grounds. At the most the producer can show on screen before the first scene that “this film is a work of fiction, any resemblance with history is a matter of purely co-incidence ’

India’s former President Prab Mukherjee claims that the Congress has the ability to adapt, adjust and rejuvete. But will the Congress politically put to use that ability? In this regard, we have some doubts. For a party which refuses to learn lessons from its miserable defeat in 2014, rejuvetion is near impossible. The umbrella characters of the Congress has considerably reduced and now it is surviving in the shadow of the dysty. The party believes that secularism is just about minority appeasement and protection. Secularism is also about majority promotion and does not mean Hindutva.
