  2. I watched t whole series for sole reason tht its an empowering matrimonial process 4 a woman, she is th ultimate decision maker.
  3. I took it as a show and just a show, i never thought is rakhi’s wedding, but I appreciate th messages it gave out.

  45. @rakhisawant Rakhi, you are the winner all th way. I am very happy for you. Today everybody is talking about you, you’ve won.
  46. I can’t help smiling looking at my twitter time line, everybody is tweeting about her today. So try as u may, u cant’ ignore Rakhi Sawant
  47. At the end Ram said, whenever they would plan to take the saat pheras NDTV Imagine would be there to bring it to us the audience.

Twitter was bustling with Rakhi tweets today, she is the winner all the way. #Rakhi became a trending topic at no.8. Just proved that try as you may you can’t ignore Rakhi Sawant. But as always there are many who are judgmental about Rakhi and this show. I hate such kind of pretentious hypocritical judgmental people. I have been constantly fighting with all these people who speak ill of Rakhi and I feel tired already. I can guess how she must feel living every day of her life with so many people hating her.

Why do people hate her so much? Because she is unapologetic about who she is, she holds her ground in her pride and is not ashamed of being the real self unlike most of us who are hiding behind our masks. She can’t ass lick, she is annoyingly honest. Some people even has a problem with her inability to speak in English. They make fun of her accent. How narrow are these people?

The ohter day I fought with all such people who made fun of her accent. It is a mean heartless thing to make fun of anybody for any reason specially for their accent. Every body has funny accent, the south Indians have the Punjabis have the Biharis have the french, the spaniards, they all have funny accent, its a shame to make fun of people’s accent.

We all come with our queerness in some way or the other, some can be seen and heard some can’t, so we must learn to love and respect people and not judge them for some silly thing they have.

But look at the twitter time line and you’ll see people making stupid jokes about Rakhi Sawant. Some one said, “does Elesh know what is he getting into?” I felt like asking that person, did your boyfriend/husband/friends know what they were getting into. I mean who do you think you are that you pass such comments against Rakhi.

I get so angry, Rakhi has gone enough of shit in this life, can we please give her some love now, accept her for what she is and be happy for her that she got the success she wanted.

All the best to you Rakhi for everything ahead.
