Similarities between Narmada and Plachimada

1. Both are places where the contentious issue involes water.


2. Both involve Aamir Khan. Aamir Khan is the brand ambassador for Coca Cola, the company that is sucking Plachimada dry besides creating humongous pollution, and the ambassador for the displaced people because of the Sardar Sarovar Dam.


Amazing, how the media does not highlight this inconguruity about Aamir Khan. How can he create ads for such a company and also be a "concerned citizen" of India? Hypocrisy? maybe. Ignorance? perhaps. No ad money from Sardar Sarovar Dam Project? *shrug*.


If Aamir is really concerned about the people who dont have a voice, perhaps he should stop his double standards. I still appreciate his coming out in support of NBA but hope that he wont stop there and that he would be a more informed and concerned citizen.

If Aamir Khan was so concerned about rehabilitation issue he could have adopted atleast one displace family . But no he didn't. He saw NBA as a perfect platform for getting publicity and jumped onto it.

Who knows he might make a movie out of it and earn money. Enough of these actors speaking about Narmada and Tsunami. Down with their cheap acts of publicity!!

That would have been more obscene.

I doubt that theory very much. I think he is sincere in his concern for the people displaced by the Narmada dams.

Issues like Narmada dam and Tsunami require the support of public figures for the same reason that prompts companies to use them in their ads.

I read an interview of Aamir Khan, where he said that he is looking into the Coke matter, and would comment on it in a month or two.
