It won't be an exaggeration to say that Sushant Singh Rajput's case has blindfolded many people from the actual issues that the country is facing now, like COVID Chinese incursion, unemployment, schooling or the examination issues.

Who would have imagined that the death of a person with such a calm demeanour could provoke so many elements of the country? If you have seen my previous articles, I made a few articles about nepotism and Bollywood crime angle. Still, I soon realized that the whole story is being twisted for the sake of political gains and personal vengeance. And also that was around the time when Kangana Ranaut in collaboration with Republic TV, decided to go for a rampage against everyone they wanted to target for a long time. The politicians and police departments from Maharastra, Bihar, Himachal Pradesh and even the center got involved in giving their ego a boost or playing the political Game of Thrones. What's forgotten in the middle of all this mess is the justice for Sushant. Friends, I want to start with a quick example from the United States. Since the pandemic began five months ago, the coffers of billionaires increased by 800 billion dollars. They kept getting more prosperous when the little less than two lakh people died due to COVID situation in the past five months.
What's unfortunate is this kind of cheap sensationalism sells in our country where people love to assume that someone is a wrong person and loved torturing them and watching them getting tortured or being morally polished. Before the Banana Republic channels, it all worked out well and good, their TRP's and YouTube subscriptions have skyrocketed in the past two to three months. At the same time, all this circus is at play. The ruling party of Bihar, who is in good terms with the center hatched out a plan to send a separate investigation team to Mumbai, clearly to score a few brownie points before their election and to seek political vendetta against the ruling government of Maharashtra.
Friends. Amidst all this, India was grappling with the significant issues like unprecedented growth of COVID cases where we are the number one in the daily number of cases. We are the worst hit in terms of GDP growth compared to other countries. Chinese incursion is a significant problem which cannot be ignored. Unemployment numbers are skyrocketing. Schools and college students are uncertain about their future. Many are not able to take competitive exams like IIT, JEE or neet exams. Now, some of you may accuse me of sounding exactly like a left-wing sympathizer.

Trust me, friends, all politicians are the same to me. They are trained to pull the strings of a puppet show. They are the opportunists. Also, why do we want to fix ourselves within the bounds of a particular political narrative? Do we have to belong to either left or right-wing? Can we take a middle ground and assess things with a little more common sense? Anyone with some common sense would have figured out right from the beginning that the media outlets, politicians and Kangana are milking the sentiments of the common man.
So while the case didn't seem to go anywhere, Kangana recently introduced a little more masala to the case by saying that 99 per cent of Bollywood is on drugs. Oh, wait a minute! She must have counted a handful of actors and actresses, including herself, from her past confessions and generalized to just 99 per cent. How are we made to believe that thousands of crew members behind the camera were meeting their ends through Bollywood income or under the influence of drugs?
Friends, I'm not giving a clean sheet to Bollywood here right. I have made articles about the dirty secrets of Bollywood. But why suddenly all this dirt is coming out now? Also, a common man is learning about all the cool words that Americans introduced to refer to marijuana like pot bud weed, etc.. Well, there is not much difference between our desi product Ganja and these borrowed names. Kangana Later locks horns with Maharastra government and Mumbai police in comparison to Pakistan occupied Kashmir and introducers Kashmiri Pandits angle out of the blue.
The Maharashtra government takes the bait and demolishes that office. It almost seemed like the home ministry in Delhi and Kangana was waiting for a perfect opportunity to elevate Kangana's VIP status to such a level that they provide y plus security to her, which is only available for 15 people in the country. This is a level of protection that is out of reach for many honest IAS officers and other precious citizens whose life is under threat. Don't be surprised if Kangana, who successfully milked the sentiments of her base in the name of SSR, would be a central minister in the next few years.
Think about it, friends. This case created a battleground of sorts between Bihar Maharastra Center and Himachal Pradesh. Kangana also smartly slipped in remainder issue, Kashmiri Pandit issue, plus the Dawood Ibrahim angle. If someone can figure out a way to add Sabarimala and jallikattu angle to Sushant's case, it will become a Pan India issue. In this puppet show every time the common man got tired of dancing to the strings pulled by various parties involved. They introduce a new twist to the plot that energizes the puppets and the TRP hungry media. We don't know what's cooking and what's going to be the next hot twist to this topic. But one thing is for sure, as long as they keep sensationalizing this issue, they can keep milking their emotionally naive audience and keep them dancing.
Friends, as I end this article. It very concerns to see how these media channels, state governments and central governments have made SSR's case the number one issue in the country for Freking three months. When was the last time we talked about women's safety, farmers, suicide, job issues, uncertain careers of working-class men and women, and zillions of other real problems that matter for India?
I get it, guys. SSR's sudden demise was emotional, that was unbelievable. Justice needs to be served. But what if in reality there is no clear villain to the story? What if the CBI or the police departments won't find anyone or may also be the puppets at the hands of politicians? Now we can only hope that there is some conclusion to the case, but until then, are we going to allow few folks with vested interests to exploit common man's emotion, or do we want to move on with our lives?
