Something original please

People, we can do much better than this.

Once is good, twice is ok, but frequently? Come on let us be more original.

First it was the Muntadar al-Zaidi, a reporter with Cairo-based network Al Baghdadia Television to Bush. Then it was at Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. People started writing about the “politics of shoe throwing“.

Then, the fever soon caught up our people and we have started slinging shoes at our ministers, first Chidambaram, now Advani, who knows who’s on line next.

Isn’t it time to stop behaving like the Monkeys (from the famous story we learnt in our childhood, where a cap seller throws his cap to let all the monkeys throw the stolen caps) Aren’t we a bit more innovative to imitate others. If we want a political message to be brought forward, why not use some other means. I don’t know what, but something different.

I resent this shoe throwing activist. Its outrageous. I don’t say that the politicians do not deserve and all, but there are other ways to protest.

How much is too much?

The next person thinking to throw it, please think about it.

  1. There was a cartoon in TOI recently and that campaigning politicians were returning “the shoe” with a gold watch to the ‘shoe-throwers’ . It was hilarious.

    But I too agree that this practice is a lil’ too extreme. But I guess less time consuming like organizing a protest rally…its fast but of course easy to get caught for throwing!

Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!
