Happy B'Day Amir... Love U Love U Love U
by Pradip Basu Bookmark and Share

Two names.......

Katherine Boo
AND
Pallagumi Sainath

I bet these two names mean nothing to us......to most of us..... what with so much absurd and bizarre happening that absolutely need to be told (and updated too on an hourly basis!!!) in silly morphed photographs, photo-shopped to distraction. Something which numbs us so much that we lose that basic human sensitivity and curiosity to look beyond the nose of our own Face-Book accounts and discover something REALLY of substance and something that no matter how much you tried, couldn't be photo-shopped and plastered across Face-book, Nose-book or Ass-book or any other book for that matter.....

Something that is nothing but unadulterated truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Katherine Boo- Journalist extraordinaire, and the writer of the MOST CAPTIVATING BOOK ON THE HIDDEN AND NOT SO HIDDEN LIFE OF BOMBAY SLUMS THAT I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED..... "Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity."

P Sainath- The man who WAS THE only journalist for a LOOOOOOOOOONG TIME screaming hoarse day in and day out about how debt-ridden farmers were killing themselves by the hour AND NOBODY BOTHERED THEN as nobody bothers now.

But hey!!! Isn't it Aamir's B'day tomorrow...... SO MORPH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
