This guy really rocks!

He comes from an impoverished background, loses his parents early, gets into an inter caste love affair and marries the girl he loved before acrobating into the world of entertainment.

He had neither stunning looks nor a god father to assist in this extremely difficult world. And still he not only survived but kept himself to the top for endless years. A truly inspiring person and a great role model, indeed!!

1. You waited 5 hours for Shah Rukh Khan?
Well. That's Indian tardiness for you. How very professional!

2. "He thinks big" / "To be on top of the world" etc.
Really? Why not open schools? Why open Kidzania?
Top of the world mindset ... why not 'with the world' mindset.

3. "Extremely scared of failure"
Failure is not equal to poverty.
And Mr. SRK is now being a poster child for the 'bigness',
that consumerism is selling as a dream and goad for
the middle class.

But why are we not surprised?
What better mascot to sell outdated Capitalist ethos,
to a starving nation of 1.3 billion ... than SRK.
And if he can be roped in by Forbes ...
The self proclaimed Capitalist Tool ...
So much the better! Master coup that one.
