Did Rosmah offered Malaysia as Dowry to Danny boy?


Welcome to the latest reality show in Malaysia. The race is on for the top job and there are any number of contestants fighting tooth and nail to win the jackpot. And what a jackpot it is!  Nooryana Najwan No exaggeration,

Good Show. Now we have son in-law, father in law, mother in law – all out of law. What next? Wait and see how KARMA responds to ill-willed people Malaysia is now to be a haven for con artists and swindlers? What exactly is the value of our passports?Exaggerated but means it’s true and a fact that there’s such an allegation? This is the danger of falling in love with a handsome face! Both Najis and Roastymama is so cunning and calculative and it’s a karma to beget a daughter that is so taken in by the sweet-talk of this baby-faced conman! The parents conned people’s money and the daughter gets conned. Indeed this is what they called retribution. Its a great pity you dont have enough respect for your daughter to allow her to speak for herself. And I’m so relieved to hear that in YOUR opinion the New York Post is in the business of exaggerating the news. Not everyone is like Malaysians

Exaggerated but means it’s true and a fact that there’s such an allegation? This is the danger of falling in love with a handsome face! Both Najis and Roastymama is so cunning and calculative and it’s a karma to beget a daughter that is so taken in by the sweet-talk of this baby-faced conman! The parents conned people’s money and the daughter gets conned. Indeed this is what they called retribution.

We Malaysian  feel sorry for you Nooryana Najwan but not your mum Rosmah. Rosmah is already ‘drunk’ in the dirty reporting of Utusun Melayu and thought that the New York papers were the same. So Dani Boy cheated his ex-stepfather of only $10 million and perhaps only falsified his grades at Columbia? I guess that’s really quite acceptable then.

 Rosmah, it is KARMA. Remember Altantuya, her father Sharibu? Remember Anwar, his wife Wan Azizah and his daughter Nurul? Also remember Ambiga, Teoh Beng Hock, Kugan, etc. etc? How do you think they all would have felt when their close ones were abused by you and your family? Please repent before more KARMA comes your way. It’s a good thing that the opposition is not involved. No need to tell us that the news in exaggerated. Tell the American agency that they are incompetent, tell them that they are exaggerating the story and tell the Americans that it’s all but a lie. Like it or not Rosman, when your daughter bears a son, you cannot say that Dani boy the swindler is not the father.  has a song for you… Running in the family.

Dear  Nooryana Najwan ,
If you know what’s good for you, you shall pay close attention to the sage words of young Siddhartha Mallya and not indulge in behaviour that may adversely impact your chances of being a worthy ‘future wife’. This is serious stuff. Look at what happened to an unknown blond from America called Zohal Hamid, when Sid thought she stepped out of line and did not behave like a `future wife’. Not only was her future husband beaten up by Luke Pomersbach, a naughty Australian cricketer who had strayed into their plush suite looking for a drink (at dawn), but the rogue dared to follow the ‘future wife’ into the bedroom when all she’d wanted to do was lie down and catch up on some sleep.

It gets worse – this brute, clearly not clued in to the ways of ‘future wives’ from India (okay, of Indian origin), and how they are expected to behave with foreign cricketers who barge into their bedrooms, was bold enough to make a pass at the distraught lady, who was clearly unaccustomed to such behaviour. Hearing the cries for help from his ‘future wife’, Sahil (it could also be Sajid) Peerzada, the future husband, rushed in to save her honour. Instead of apologising to both future spouses, the rude cricketer punched the boyfriend/ fiancé/ future husband. He punched him so hard, there was blood on the plush carpet and a shattered ear drum that required surgery.

Naturally, Zohal had to swing into action and do what any loyal ‘future wife’ would – summon the press, the cops and an ambulance. Not necessarily in that order. As an American, she knew her rights, and she wasn’t about to take any of this nonsense lying down. Especially not after Mallya Jr tweeted about her social behaviour the previous night, right before the frisky cricketer “tagged along” to her suite like a puppy following a juicy bone. The telling tweet turned out to be a huge mistake. But the ‘future wife’ had proved her point. You don’t mess with ladies like that and think you can get away with it. Not even if you are The Prince of Good Times. By now, there was a registered police complaint, plus a demand for an immediate apology from Sid Mallya. The ‘future wife’ was not just on the war path, she meant business.

Well, as things stand right now, there has been a great deal of public hand-shaking (after the hand wringing). And all the aggrieved parties have decided to put this incident behind them. Sid has not exactly apologised but termed his unfortunate comment as being “the product of stressful circumstances.” The ‘future wife’s’ lawyer confirmed a settlement (minus any financial considerations) has been reached since “all petitioners are young and have a long life ahead of them.” Amen.

But, you, dear `future wife’, may not be as lucky with your future husband. What if the guy is not as enlightened and progressive as Sahil? What if he really minds if a hunky cricketer at a glamorous , boozy party fancies you, and then follows you all the way to the bedroom? Worse, what happens if a celeb’s tweet accuses you of conduct unbecoming of a `future wife’? Be honest. It’s a tough call.

There ought to be a detailed Handybook for Future Wives in India. How are the poor things supposed to know what to do, how to behave, if rules are not in place? How could any attractive young woman imagine an attractive young cricketer would have the guts to try and kiss her, when her future husband was just a few feet away? In the case of Zohal, there are several wonderful men, including a rakhi brother, who are ready to defend her honour. But not all future wives are as lucky. The moral of the story is abundantly clear: As a future wife, stay away from IPL parties. Make sure nobody follows you. Look over your shoulders at all times, in case there is an Aussie bloke looking for a drink from your mini-bar. If you do decide to take a catnap in the middle of a party, ensure you lock the bedroom door first. And it is always a good idea to have an attorney on speed dial, just in case your future husband gets bashed up.

Like everyone else, well at least like most of us out there, I am reasonably impressed with Aamir’sSatyameva Jayate. Criticism notwithstanding, the conceptual thrust of the programme, its genuine essence of outreach and its intense intent of pinching the public conscience extends beyond Aamir’s overextended altruism, and his understated charisma. The show may lack pizzazz and spunk – point is – it has what it needs to have – the positive-contagion ripple effect.

It gets people thinking, talking, moving and evidently, scribbling. In my case, I am reminded of a blog on Rani Laxmi Bai that I had written last year. We met another Rani in a recent episode. A woman of strength is a queen in her own right, in any case. The inescapable parallell that it reminded me of is that an ordinary woman (I don’t believe there is any such person – to me womanhood – in all its shades of glory, is extraordinary) shone through the fractured fabric of the show, its dismal context and saddening reality, as a ray of hope and happiness.

Not only did Rani Tripathi display tremendous courage in slamming the menace of dowry, she did so publicly, repeatedly. Some of the questions that she asked, rhetorical  though they may have been to anyone with a sense of justice and right reason, captured the tragic senselessness of her situation with sparkling clarity.

She and others like her underscore a similar strain – Why is a woman expected to bring gifts for the bridegroom’s family? Why do the so-called gifts tantamount to the upkeep of the groom’s whole family for life? How can people shamelessly demand cars and cash? Where does the greed end? Why is the deal accentuated closer to the marriage, why are men so shamelessly begging their wives to take care of their avarice? Why is marriage a pulsating field for haggling? When did marriage cease to be a partnership and become a brokership? When did marriage cease to be a relationship and become a deal?

Often, I am asked why I continue to write about dreary social issues, particularly the kind that somehow have a woman at the nucleus. My answer, to myself is that for every Medusa-menace that we face – be it dowry, child marriage, abused children, khap panchayats, corruption, all of which I have almost ‘militantly’ written about again and again – there is a valiant ‘Rani’ that can make the difference. If not, there needs to be one!

Issues, all of them, need to have a woman as the nucleus. For, if the process of metamorphoses, of transformative impact begins with a woman, the end of societal defilement will become a certainty. Our fundamental strength, as showcased by Rani Tripathi, shouldn’t be up for sale, shouldn’t be up for grabs, shouldn’t be negotiable!

For me, that would be, ‘Satyameva Jayate’.
