Kapil Sharma: A Comedian’s Submission
Mr. Kapil Sharma, a comedian par excellence is a very popular and famous comedian having international following running in crores. He run a very popular show on a TV channel. He is a non-political man engaged in his own work unmindful of political controversies. When such a simple and non-political performer passes a satirical remark against Modi’s Acchey Din in his tweet, it means something serious has happened and he has a genuine complaint. His complaint was that he was asked to pay 5 lac rupees as bribe to a BMC official for some additional construction in his office and his house.
As Mr. Kapil Sharma is a simple and law abiding citizen, he is unaware of political tricks. So he was dismayed and angry. He tweeted that in spite of paying large amount of money as income tax to government coffers, he was asked to pay 5 lac rupees as bribe. Are these Mr. Modi’s good days?
Since the BJP is an intolerant party, and its leaders lack sense of humor, they could not digest Kapil’s satirical remark. As a result, there is a great commotion and upheaval among the members and sympathizers of BJP and its frontal organization. Many charges, most of which were false were leveled against Mr. Sharma. There were noisy protests and demonstration in front of his office as well as residence. His normal life was upset; his mental peace was disturbed and his work suffered. Being an ordinary common man, Mr. Sharma is not thick skinned and shameless like the Indian politicians. So, he was quiet disturbed and restless. He approached his friend actor Mr. Vivek Oberoi and his father Mr. Suresh Oberoi who are close to the Maharashtra chief minister Mr. Devendra Fadanvis. They acted as mediators and took his to the cm to explain his position. After this meeting, Mr. Kapil Sharma’s travails subsided a little but not completely. It is hoped that in near future, he will regain his physical comfort and mental tranquility to resume his work and refresh his show viewers and entertain them.
Mr. Kapil Sharma represents the class of common people who have neither the will not the desire to face difficulties and sacrifice the small pleasures and comforts of ordinary life. They want to remain engaged in their occupation and professions without being distracted by the aberrant and satanic cut throat activities related to politics. That is why, Mr. Kapil Sharma gave in and compromised with the government of the day. Though, still fuming with anger in the core of his heart. We wish him well and desire that he should continue his work of entertaining and pacifying our stressed nerves with his witty remarks and humorous performances.
