The footage of the destruction was pretty bad. If these idiots wanted to ransack the office why did they start hammering and crashing the cars outside? Did they think it was their grandfather's cars that they were crashing? This country is going from worse to worst to worstest!

Oh they mean the Indian culture that makes men hide on terraces or buildings and throw water ballons on women aimed at the chests and butts during holi? The whole issue is silly. It was obvious from the video's that Shilpa herself was surprised and slightly uncomfortable when Gere decided to kiss her. And what do they have to say about Indian culture where a cancer stricken 16 year old is raped?

It's high time the Shiv Sena and their ilk take up real issues like power crisis, creaking infrastructure, corruption, soaring crime, economy and more jobs. And protesting and ransacking MSEB offices and demanding reservations for jobs is not the solution.

PS: The way the Shilpa-Gere report was presented, Aaj Tak should be banned. And those two bearded morons that present the 10pm news should be flogged in full public view. Ironically, Aaj Tak gets the best news channel award year after year!

Very nice. I don't like star news drama / thriller channel. However I believe people responsible should be arrested and persecuted because they are equally idiots just like star news freaks.

Question

Hey Guys i guess things have been eased down in terms of cars, seen a couple of cars lined up at the garage near mahalaxmi for change of windsheilds and other repairs. Not much news happening about it on the TV also.

The damaged cars have a print out stuck on them Saying "STAR INDIA PVT LTD", probably for the insurance thingy, cars have been moved out of the premises for their respective repairs.

MODS: I guess we can close this thread now??

I wonder where these forces are when women get bashed/killed/maimed for dowry or when they get raped - hjow come we don't see them doing anything about that .

people are jobless man, they have nothing else to do...same with politicians

I think the most sensible Hindi News Channel would be NDTV...!

Most preferred English New Channel is Times Now..!
