Maria Sharapova, the poor Russian tennis babe was whipped left, right and centre last week by the netizens of India because bechaari revealed in a recent media interview that she did not know who Sachin Tendulkar is.
My own thoughts when the news came out:
Haye haye. Satyanaash. Kalyug aa gaya bhaiya. Ye kya bol diya isne. :-O
And of course, all hell broke loose in the Indian online space. Like they say, in these popular mythological serials “Charon taraf hahakar mach gaya”.
#WhoIsMariaSharapova was trending worldwide. Indians were trying to shame the Russian by treating her like she was a ‘Nobody’.
Kaun Maria Sharapova? Humein nahi pata. Na ji. Naam hi nahi suna. By God ki kasam.
Now we, at ChangeBhai, keep trying different tactics to ensure more and more Indian netizens log on to ChangeBhai and report their neighbourhood issues, toh ek aur chaal sahi because dude, this definitely seems to be working.
So, here we go – Trying to be totally ignorant about issues that are all over the place and are known to everybody.
Which traffic problem? #KaunSiTraffic
Where are the potholes? #KahanHaiPotholes
What is garbage? #YeGarbageKyaHotaHai
Child Labour in India? Naa ji naa. Ho hi nahi sakta.
DENIAL MODE ACTIVATED
Let’s see if it works. Don’t tell anyone. Ssssshhhhhhh….
Do you think this will work? If not, then let’s ‘Deactivate the Denial Mode’ that all of us are in and upload issues on www.ChangeBhai.in. At least 1 issue each.
Disclaimer: We love Sachin Tendulkar aka apna Sachya to death.
