PK was outstanding, though based on how people behave, it went too far on the humor side depicting Shiva in it, it could have been toned down or cut the length. It is another story that the theme of the movie was written by me some 5 years ago in Dallas Morning News.
Now this movie Bajrangi Bhaijan seems to promote the ideals of pluralism;
We have crystallized the definition of pluralism to, “respecting the otherness of the others and accepting the uniqueness of each one of us”. Pluralism is nothing but an attitude of live and let live, and it is applicable in every aspect of life including culture, society, religion, politics, gender, food, ethnicity, race and other uniqueness’s.
You are who you are, and I am who I am. As long as we don't mess with each others space, sustenance and nurturence, and mind our own business, we all will do well. If we can learn to respect the otherness of other and accept the God-given uniqueness of each one of the seven billion of us, then conflicts fade and solutions emerge.
Pluralism is not a set of rules, it is simply the attitude of live and let live religiously, politically, culturally and socially. We are committed to building cohesive societies, where no human has to live in apprehension, discomfort or fear of a fellow being.
The food item in the film is precisely from my classes on Pluralism - and I am yet to make a short 5 Minutes clip on food Pluralism.
