Indian Cinema & Piracy Menace

Tollywood went on a hunger strike seeking justice against the piracy menace.

Piracy has been a growing threat to the already crippled industry. Last month, a Tamil movie “Jaggubhai” was out in the market, even before it was released.

This time, Industry came together in the three days of protest in Hyderabad

Finally, the cinematography minister Geeta Reddy announced that “strict laws will be imposed” against piracy.

On the sidelines of this agitation, many educated bloggers went on showing their dirty minds by supporting piracy, calling piracy as a joke, justifying piracy in light of increasing prices/expenses of common man.

All these arm chair thinkers have no respect for a legal framework which they are all expected to abide with. Above that, none of these armchair thinkers have a coherent line of thought. They raise all other problems of the world and preach lessons to film people

AP government’s response on this issue may not completely solve the piracy problem. But it will make our fellow bloggers realize that they are living in a just society.

Rayala Telangana - The Catch-22

JC Diwakar Reddy's proposal for Rayala Telengana and the reasons that he cited for the same are absurd and just show the stupid mindset of politicians.

JC & co think that, if Hyderabad goes to Telangana, then why to doom with the rest of the Andhra?

Joseph Heller's Catch-22: conversation between protagonist Yossarin & his boss, wintergreen:


'What would they do to me,' he asked in confidential tones, 'if I refused to fly [the missions]?'

'We'd probably shoot you,' ex-P.F.C. Wintergreen replied.

'We?' Yossarian cried in surprise. 'What do yo mean, we? Since when are you on their side?'

'If you're going to be shot, whose side do you expect me to be on?' ex-P.F.C. Wintergreen retorted."
