Like your sheer hardwork and no entitlement or fame you received as a result of your parents? Or like how your daughter has struggled along with all those struggling actors in Mumbai and poor girl is trying to get a role?

Hi Pooja… remove all surnames and keep all persons’ surname as Indian.
i.e. Pooja Indian. (Remove Bedi)
Second, remove reservation and also remove currency too. I propose One nation, One surname.
Ok. Let’s start this campaign, privilege face @poojabeditweets

Very convenient words from a rich, upper caste person. Please shed some wisdom by sharing your thoughts on caste system which is the root of discrimination.

Why don’t you work for abolition of caste? That’s definitely ONE India.
Fight for those who die cleaning the shit from gutters. That’s ONE India.
And lovely how you flippantly discard centuries of atrocities committed by upper castes on those lower down the ladder.
