Not withstanding “Prithvi” & his immense admiration for Puneeth, if Sathya becomes a politician, he would be the most corrupt politico that has ever lived on the face of this earth. And I would be the most travelled wife on the face of this earth!
Most people are corrupt because they are greedy for more money. They want more money because they want to prove their one-upmanship to the rest of their clan - bigger car, bigger land, bigger house, and an even bigger collection of jewelry. Their statement is: I have a bigger everything! I am better than you.
I would not like being the wife of a corrupt person. Who wants gold & diamonds & car & bungalow at the cost of work ethics, moral values& conscience? Not me. Never fancied or longed for any of these.
But what if Sathya, being Sathya (chalu, smart, smooth talker) says, “Here’s the deal. You can travel all you want, wherever you want, whenever you want with my hard-earned ‘ghooos’. I ask nothing of you but your ‘janam janam ka saath”. Hypothetically speaking, of course.
Would I still refuse? No … not the janam janam ka saath wala idea. But the moolah with which he could fund my travels? Would I still say NO to his haram ki kamai? Would he be able to buy my silence, my allegiance? Good question.
And here’s my super quick & easy answer: No! I would not refuse!
Just imagine: Going on a world trip, travelling around the globe, seeing every city ever printed on a map, draping every national costume, trying every cuisine, wild nights on a cruise, shuddering on snowy mountains, posing for the lens at exotic locales, dinner in Vegas and breakfast in Mexico, praying in Italy and romancing in Paris, river rafting in New Zealand and scuba diving in Lakshwadeep, shopping in Japan and sleeping in China, …………………………………..these are what my dreams are made of!! How can I let it pass? I could not let this go. Not in my sane mind. No never. Carpe diem!!!
Hypothetical questions…DAMN YOU!
