Of an unfilmed Pak movie

Remember Adnan, a blogger friend in Karachi who posted his tribute to late Kishore Kumar? He showed guts, knowing that he would draw flak from tradition-bound circles that consider music not very Islamic. Adnan, who normally  blogs politics and religion, has readership among traditionist Pakistanis.

I revisited his blog today out of curiosity, to see how the Emergency treated bloggers; and, to get a feel of Adnan’s take on the goings-on in his country. Was struck by the strident note in his posting. On the blackout of private TV channels Adnan’s post – Information Age or Stone Age? – speaks of a surge in the sale of dish antennas in Pakistan.

  

A more amusing post carries the poster of a film visualized by a creative mind that is committed to retaining the sense of humor under the current Emergency. The unfilmed Pakistani movie – Laaga democracy mein daag – has a high-powered cast led by President Musharraf. The movie, in the horror genre, is still being evolved, with a  climax has yet to be scripted. The blogger gives a bollywood touch to the title, for effect.

  1. I just checked out that blog. There was a picture of a homeless person living in a pipe, reading a newspaper. Adnan’s comment was that we are no different from him because we live amidst a lot of filth and none of it seems to affect us. True, when you think about it.
