Soumya Rai makes gorkhas proud but Judge’s racial slur makes upsets the gorkhas
New Delhi, August 14: An 8 year old kid –‘Soumya Rai’ bags 1st runner up title at Boogie woogie little champ dance competition, a moment of joy and bliss for the entire Gorkhas. She had been the most impressive dancer at the entire show, a very cute and smart little tiny tot.
But the final round at 13th August, 2010 brought dismay, one of the judges Mr. Ravi Behl said sarcastically hinting indirectly at Soumya, “We have to learn to handle Torches as we can at least take up the job of watchmen!” India might have made strides of development but development of mindset needs to be done. They did not even spare a little tiny tot...... runner up of kid’s championship of Boogie Woogie... Soumya Rai from Darjeeling hills ridiculed by Ravi Behl judge of famed Boogie Woogie - a dance programme of Sony entertainment.
Gorkhas and other northeastern people have always been ridiculed, racially discriminated by their own countrymen and time again they had to resist such discriminatory attitude.
Is anybody listening…..?
