Maggi noodles have suddenly become a piece of villainous commodity.
In this country of ours we need to find a scapegoat. Once we find that, we all
point our fingers at it, yell at it, pounce on it and haul it over the coals
till our energy runs out. How come nobody is sued over bad roads? How come
nobody is sued when someone makes a bad car, or a bad bike or a bad truck? How
come nobody is sued when the taps run dry? How come nobody is sued when the
water is bad? How come nobody is sued when they do an illegal alteration to
To top it, the Maggi bashers are trying to haul up those who
have endorsed the product...primarily Amitabh Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit. They
are stars and they simply endorse products when they are given a decent sum.
Why blame them? As stars they can endorse anything that is legal. I can
understand if Madhuri Dixit had endorsed a bomb made by Pakistan. Or as a
matter of fact, I can understand if Amitabh had endorsed pan parag after it was
banned! Was not Maggi legal all along? Was it not sold across every counter on
every street in India? Also, was it not the job of the Food and Adulteration
department of the government (or some such body) for
ensuring that it was made in a correct way? Or was it the job of Madhuri Dixit
to find out whether Maggi contained high levels of mono sodium glutamate...or
whatever? So why rag them over the issue or even bother to threaten them? Why
not haul the government official or department that gave a license to run the
damn factory that finally produced all those noodles?
That brings me to Shah Rukh Khan and cars. Did he not
endorse a popular brand of cars in the country? Suppose a few cars from the
manufacturer caught fire, will you blame Shah Rukh Khan for that? (The cars he
endorsed are doing wonderfully well and there is no reason for Khan to
In this country, why do they always point their fingers at
the wrong direction? Amitabh Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit are good looking people
trying to make some extra cash. Just let them be!
