Rahman brings CWG ceremony to electrifying climax

2010-10-03 23:30:00

New Delhi, Oct 3 (IANS) India's music sensation A.R. Rahman belted out 'Jiyo Utho Badho Jeeto' to bring the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony Sunday to an electrifying climax, as the crowds echoed him in equal measure.

Rahman, clad in a white bandhgala jacket, black pants and white shoes, performed the Commonwealth Games 2010 anthem with hundreds of dancers dressed in traditional Indian costumes.

As the spectators joined him, much of the flak the Oscar winning composer has faced for the Rs.500 million Commonwealth Games 2010 anthem seemed to have been washed away.

Fireworks went off and then 'Jai ho', Rahman's Oscar winning song, filled the air. The chant at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, many would swear, was magical.

Yes it was an impressive opening ceremony, no doubt, but can rthe song and dance and laser light shows HIDE the corruption of thousands of crores of crooked congress dynasty and agents? REALLY DOUBTFUL. The dirty trths and WARTS remain even NOW. ALL Indians and ALL Majority HINDUS MUST know indians and hindus know THE DEEP RACISM AND DISCRIMINATION practiced by white commonwealth countries like UK,australia, new zealand,canada,etc. For citizens of UK,Australia,New Zealand and Canada, there is NO need for entry permit or visa to Visit those countries and THEY ARE GIVEN WORK PERMITS even without asking for it. But compare the situation of indian slaves AND HARSH TREATMENT OF INDIANS by the white UK,Australia,New Zealand and Canada authorities. INDIANS HAVE TO BREAK THEIR HEAD EVEN TO GET A TOURIST VISA TO THOSE COUNTRIES AND INDIANS ARE NOT GIVEN WORK PERMITS easily and they have to PRODUCE SO MANY DOCUMENTS EVEN TO GET TOURIST VISA TO THOSE COUNTRIES although UK and westerna nations LOOTED TRILLIONS AND TRILLIONS OF RUPPES OR DOLLARS FOR THE PAST 5 CENTURIES. It is time that ALL HINDUS AND ALL INDIANS SHOUT THAT there will be NO tourist visas or permits to UK,Australian,New Zealand and Candian citizens UNLESS THEY GIVE FREE ENTRY PERMITS TO indians to those countries, But since our rulers and congress politicians are SLAVES OF BRITISH AND WESTERNERS, they have NO courage to stand up and THEY HAVE BEEN ALREADY MADE ENNUCHS&MORONS&COWRDS BY british and their double agents mahatma gandhee and Nehru, WHAT A SHAME, MAJORITY HINDUS.
