I had an occasion to see the picture Viswarupam telecasted on deepawali day in Vijay TV.
I was sorry to see one scene, where Kamalahasan a music teacher opens a owen and his deciples rush to tastes some non vegetarian item prepared. Kamalahasan call an actress and and ask her "Papati amma please try taste this and say it is pesrfect"
As a Brahmin this hurts me. I dont understand why Kamal has always taken such scenes to project and humiliagte brahminical habbits.
I can say so many things about Kamal, his character and his womanising qualities as deserteer of women. But i refrain because i am a brahmin
Eating veg or non veg is ones once choice and Kamal has no right to insult a commiunity.
He HAD ALREADY A BITTER HABIT AS TO HOW THE MUSLIMS UNITED TO DEMAND A BAN ON HIS PICTURE
NO ONE WILL DARE TO DO THESE TYPES OF THINGS IF BRAHMIN AS A COMMUNITY STAND UNITED AND DO NOT SELF CRITICISE THEIR OWN HABITS.
I wish to bring few points to your consideration, please.
Kamal Hasan is a 'pseudo secularist' only. For the same movie, he waswilling to bend backwards to keep the muslims happy, by his own admission. People like Kamal Hasan should not affect any community at all.
He chose the word 'paappathy' well. 'Paappathy' is a common name amoung non-brahmin ladies. I watched about 15 minutes of that movie before stopped bothering to watch that movie. Neither myself nor my wife even considered 'Paappathy' as a Brahmin lady since both us are quite aware of the name 'Paappathy' amoung non-brahmins. Kamal Hasan was possibly trying to appease some non-brahmin castes by choosing the name 'Paappathy'.
That comment was not technically correct either. One doesn't check for salt for a roast after it is cooked. It is way too late already. Salt should be cheeked in the marinade. Secondly, the lack of salt is perfectly okay for a roast. In fact, it should have less salt.. Usually roast should be eaten with a suitable sauce and the sauce should be checked for the salt level or what ever.
Lastly... it is an important point..... I grew up in an Iyengar family. I can usually prepare very decent roasts ( although my friends asked me to, I don't like to cook under count down.. I like to enjoy cooking... often times while roast are prepared, JD would be flowing too). Now, what does this tell you? Kamal may not be too far out when he called a 'Paappathy' to check a roast...
Eating Veg and/or non-veg is a personal choice. Just by high lighting that a community need not get insulted.
This is a fact - During 70s and 80s in Vellore, Bypass road there was a non-vegetarian hotel. People from Chitoor, Coimbatore, Salem flocked to that hotel. It was just a glorified tea-shop. I was told, the food was 'just fantastic' in that hotel ( I didn't know. I was a pure vegetarian). The chef was a brahmin.
Why can't you see the bright side of the comment? If the brahmins did it, they would do it the best, including non-veg cooking!
