Open Letter to PTI SM Team and PTI Cultists

26 Feb

pti-social-media-teamWriting an open letter to you guys has been on my list for a while now. The sort of antics you all indulge in are juvenile to say the least but there is a lot more to what you guys do.  One would think that representing a party that has been around for 16 years and has managed only 1 seat in the NA would bring you guys down to reality but like most things about PTI, rationality and reason seem to have skipped you guys completely.

Social Media Dentists and the Knock Off Obama

You know bad days are coming when someone stops putting in an effort and start ripping/copying stuff from other people. Think of it this way, how sad is it when you see Sahir Lodhi desperately trying to copy Shahrukh Khan and how pathetic he comes off as a person.

Initially this glaring hypocrisy made people angry at how PTI refuses to see what it has become but now it is just sad. Like a Chinese knock off, PTI is now showing exposing its wear and tear.

The Bakery, The CM and Social Media

18 Oct

Recently Social Media has been on fire about the Bakery Incident that involved CM Punjab’s daughter’s security in an altercation with Bakery Staff. The story came up in a very planned manner with a video ‘leaking’ on Vimeo and then being spread through a very specific group of people till it eventually went viral. And after it did what followed was the very similar hue and cry of our social media and mainstream media about how the powerful can get away with anything and how law and order is going to hell in Punjab. It got to a point where some people started saying things like Punjab was being treated like private property of the CM where his kids get to play and do whatever they like. Continue reading
