so they've got engaged. finally. two people in love who took the next logical step. but not so simple considering the context they are in.
hope in vain that this should reduce the noise on countless forums across the online world where people evaluate the implications/motivations of the hook-up, passing value judgements (mostly on the lady) and some going to the pathetic extent of character assassination. and these are educated (i assume) people of reasonable intelligence (assuming, again)...who have: a paycheck to bring home, bills to be paid, the trash to be taken out, a good book to finish, the planet to save...
why cant these guys just accept that they're just two people in love, without reading so much of the imagined between the lines.....must be one of the occupational hazards of being a celeb these days...having people who dont know you from Eve or Adam pronounce verdicts on your past and present. and the media's on a feeding frenzy...feeding off the public response to a non-issue and seriously raking in terrific hits & the TRPs.
but I spoke too soon I think when I said this might be the end of the frenzy....rediff has a segment on what Ash and Abhi should do? LOL. I know what rediff should do...get off the topic and get a life! Report on something thats of a lil less personal in nature...what is the need to open up a topic concerning an event in two people's lives to public comment or venomous diatribes as has often been seen in its spaces! Pretty darn ridiculous and distasteful too.
Hopefully, the waters will be calm again once they tie the knot. Or not.
