Sarcasm

nothing is more important than
the colour of a bikini
nothing is more important than to be against ‘love jihad’ supposedly being represented on screen
nothing is more important than if a scene in a movie was removed or not
ban it burn it or kill them all
let the small girlchild continue eating from the garbage can
foraging in it for food she will be forced by you to throw back for it being non-veg
let the potholes on the bad roads grow bigger and wider
causing accidents and killing more people
let more pillars under bridges in metros built badly for the metro collapse and kill whole families
let there be police on the roads who harass Muslims and take bribes from riders who break red lights
let there be fights based on language chauvinism
and pee-gates
with women alone not allowed to pee anywhere, let alone on men
let the women be always made aware of the fact that they are ‘lesser’
let there be arrests and detentions and INFLATION
and casteist and religious discrimination and upholding our ‘sanskar’ blindly by banging thalis in the face of pandemics
let there be pollution and more statues of Adi and other yogis costing billions flying in the face of ecological conservation and environmental safety precautions
let there be an endless mass of always struggling people
let there be more and more cows and dogs on the roads of our metros and only cows and dogs and not people as they are afraid of their increasing numbers now
but let none of it matter
as there are more important things and pressing matters to attend to and waste (spend our time gainfully on!) our time on
like
the colour of a bikini
love jihad
and if a scene is removed or not from a movie
ban it burn it don’t show it rather than not see it
don’t give the people the choice as they can’t learn unless taught
let us take the law into our own hands and teach them what to see and watch and what not to
into that hell of chaotic slavery, mayhem, and death, O Lord! let our country awake & arise
