Why it is an all out focuss on movies ?

PrZin Since ages it was religion that was a dominant factor from home to business and almost every where. Visiting temples, churches and mosques was a routine factor of life. There are changes now and the general concentration is not that much confined to it, it has changed direction which, the direction that has movies as a foremost important area. You talk of any situation or subject, the reactions you get in reply from the current generation of people are invariably centred to the themes they prefer uppermost. You talk of Ramayan (Ram Charitra Manas) of Tulsidas, they will refer to Arun Govil who played the role of Ram in the record TV serial in his name. Talking of other Gods, they will refer to Dara Singh, an athelete of world fame turned to film actor, as it was he who played the role of Veer Hanuman in the same TV serial. You name some goddess, they will react with mention of some movie star or the other. It could be Preity Zinta, Madhuri Dixit (Nene), Aishwarya Rai Bachhan or the likes. Nothing sells in any market unless the brands wear some tag of Shahrukh Khan, Amitabh Bachhan, Rhitik Roshan or some other heavy weight in filmdom. You ask any child to sing a song and the child comes out readily reciting some couplet, normally of a romantic order only, from some film as that is how the children are now a days taught by their parents to cope with the latest trend of taste in society. There is no political party in the country who has failed to enlist some film star of eminence or the other to support it as if no politics can be practised unless there is necessary patronage from movie world. Possibly this is the taste of the people all over the country and it is difficult to say to which end it ultimately settles down in days to come. Just a little before I saw a news clip on my laptop with the headline telling that Amitabh Bachhan will be the next Prime Minister of India. The world of glamour is capable of superceding every thing.
