Antilia – A Feather on Mukesh Ambani’s Cap

October 22, 2010

Antilia is the new face of Mumbai and pretty soon, we would be singing laurels about the man who gave us this one of a kind residence to talk about. India is none the less a nation filled with hypocrites. When we see a man driving a Porche, we wonder if he is a politician. We wonder if he has connections with the underworld, and we wonder how in the world did he gets so rich.
We are so immensely curious that we may even click pictures and post it all over the internet to show the world how rich people spend their money. But think for a second. Are we any different? Do we share our wealth with the poor or do we splurge the money on a luxury that we needed since god knows when. But, when someone who can truly splurge on his own dreams, we do not cease to detest the actions of that individual and blatantly deem it a crime to society if nothing more.
Since time immemorial, the prejudice against the rich and powerful has prevailed in India. Even the Indian cinema has followed suit to our perception of the rich and the influential, thus portraying the rich as bad and the bad as always rich. Our cinema used to revolve around a broke protagonist on a quest to achieve name, fame and fortune. The bad guys, “The Rich” get in the way as the protagonist discovers that they smuggle goods to get rich quick while the hero slogs at a dock to make ends meet. With this picture firmly pasted in the minds of Indians, we always seen to meddle up the reel with the real world and hence we fail to see the difference.
Mr. Mukesh Ambani is a man of honor and grace who has the right to chose the way he spends his hard earned money. I am no employee of reliance nor am I a close associate of Mr. Ambani himself. I am just a man who values the constitution and the respects the right of expression that it provides. So what if it’s an expensive home? Mr. Ambani’s Reliance feeds the stomachs of thousands of people who serve his great empire. Being the second largest value creator of the world is no joke and no one has the right to judge a man of his caliber and question the way he spends his money.
The real picture remains hidden always, why do the politicians of India always get away in-spite of them clawing away wealth from the common man. Why are their kids studying in UK while the people they are chosen to serve rot in a hell hole? Why are the people who should be pointed at the ones who pointing fingers? In a place where people like Kalmadi and Lalit Modi are making news while the common man is being squished under the weight of inflation, corruption and population alike, there exists at least one man who has earned his way to the top rather than simply taking from the poor.
