At first, I thought that the whole media hype over Sania’s marriage announcement with Shoab Malik was just another of Indian media’s lame ‘sansani’ stuff. But, what really puzzles me is why is everyone else getting outraged over it? Just Check out the twitter buzz around Sania’s and you’ll understand the level of madness around the issue.
I feel that it’s her personal life and her personal choice. We cant really say anything on it.
But if I said that I dont really care about the issue at all. I would be wrong. I feel sad, in fact in some place insulted too. It feels as if Indian men just aren’t good enough.
When I look deeper I realize that the feelings are also coz she is marrying a Pakistani. I mean who in the whole world would want to marry a Pakistani! A nation where every street is littered with AK-47 and Bombs. Why would anyone want to leave India and go live in Pakistan where your lifestyle choices are decided not by you but by what the maulvi says.
Had she married an American or someone from any other country, I don’t think it would have really mattered. Now, that leaves us with a lot of questions about our relationship with Pakistan.
People on both sides always talk about how it is important to have peace. But deep down in our hearts, there runs this fierce spirit of competitiveness which I feel is responsible for the huge outrage over Sania’s choice.
But, Nothing matters except that in the end its her choice. If you don’t like her decision, stop being her fan. There is nothing else that you can and should do.
At the same time, I don’t really think that this whole mess is her fault. Its just that the India-Pak sentiments are such that you can never really know in which direction they will take. And for poor Sania, they took the wrong direction.
What do you think? Isn’t it just about the Pakistani factor?
