Where Tavleen Singh finally gets it. Somewhat.
@prasanna_s In cases like this allowing oneself with schadenfreude is legitimate no?
Don't think they don't get it. They do, but feel only when it pinches them
@prasanna_s what she gets is her narrow self interest. her references to others is just lip service I'm sure.
@prasanna_s Just as I suspected:
“His father’s name is on the affidavit I signed. When he turned 18, I tried to apply for another indefinite visa and was advised by the officials to get a PIO card instead. This I did and nobody asked me if his father was Pakistani”
They didn’t have the four-drop rule for PIOs/ OCIs when Taseer applied for PIO. This was a rule that came 10+ years later. How fair is it to cancel a “lifelong” visa based on new rules?
@prasanna_s Yep, “somewhat”. Only somewhat.
@prasanna_s amazing that even at such a juncture in her and her son's life she is unable to shake off her sense of entitlement
@nit_set that sense of entitlement will follow her to her grave I think
@prasanna_s How does she get it? She's still ranting about why she should've gotten special treatment and even in this self pitying soliloquy, she manages to put in that she thought Taseer's article was inaccurate and also take a swipe at Rahul Gandhi. As recently as two weeks back she was singing Hindutva paeans . She doesn't get it, she's just upset that unlike Swapan, Gurumurthy, etc, she didn't qualify for special treatment.
@prasanna_s der aaye durust aaye? This is such sheer entitlement. 'Till it doesn't affect me I won't acknowledge'.
@prasanna_s she's invested so deeply into voldemort, wonder if she can escape. Even for beloved beta.
@prasanna_s she's just upset because she didn't get a free pass in recognition of her services.
@prasanna_s not just her but the IE also seems to be trying to redeem itself after giving much space to govt propaganda
@prasanna_s "Somewhat" is right. She played the "abla nari" card while giving reasons for not going to court. The tone of the article is -" I have hope, they will listen to my woes and consider restoring OCI"
@prasanna_s She's only venting because she was ignored. If the government had resolved the issue then she would've gone back to her old ways. Besides, Taseer was himself a Modi fanboy and cheered his ascendancy. What he didn't realize was that ranga billa are beyond petty and extremely vindictive.
@prasanna_s 'somewhat' being the keyword here.
@prasanna_s Similar thing happening to Irom Sharmila who spent 16 years in prison campaigning against the AFSPA of Indian Govs of every complexion. She is being deprived of her passport. For now she has no proof of citizenship. The last excuse was that she suppressed information about being the iron lady of Manipur although when we turned up at the Passport Agency everyone there from cleaners to Passport officer wanted a selfie. They said they would issue the passport unless the ministry objects
