My Views on Tanmay Bhatt roast over Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar



Most of the Indians love and deeply respect Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mageshkar and no one would ever want to insult them, but why? Why do every Indian love them? Indians are passionate about cricket and Sachin is an iconic player in the history of this game. Insulting him is a big thing. Also, talking about lata mangeshkar, she is known for her iconic voice and contributions to the music community.

But wait. Hasn't there been many more people(some even greater) who have been insulted? Remember of anyone? Why don't we raise the topic for those others? I'll take the example of Sir Issac Newton. Funny eh? Not really.

Newton is close to me. I feel bad that how people make fun of him. Everything we do traces back to his work. Newton was the discoverer of the Laws of Motion, Laws of Optics, Gravitation, Inventor of Differential and Integral Calculus and much more! His contributions to science, philosophy and alchemy was unbelievably beautiful. That guy was deeply connect to the Universe.

Now back to the joking part, Ever heard of that joke you find on Facebook? Goes something like: "I wish the whole tree instead of the apple would have fallen on him! Life would have been so easier.". How isn't that offensive? A guy who changed the world(and made your life easier, Irony ain't it?). And People say this? Why don't we take that seriously? I'll tell you why. Because he was't an Indian.

Indians are so obsessed with their culture and nationality that now I'm forced to believe this:
"Nationalism Does Nothing but Teach You to Hate People You Never Met and Take Pride in Accomplishments You Had No Part In" - Doug Stanhope

We never care for others. We think our culture is the best. We think our culture is the most pure and scientific culture. This has delusion has made us BAD. Most people don't care for Newton. But would surely be offended if someone insults Ramanujan(I love him, but not for his nationality).

What Tanmay did was not good for their fans. He imitated them in a way that would offend their fans. But Where does this feeling goes away when it's about someone of other nationality? I'm sure people wouldn't respect them so much if they weren't Indians. Not many Indians would respect them for there work if they weren't Indians... and that spoils the beauty in their fame.
