Of late there has been a trickle of trolls trying to discredit Sonu Sood’s exemplary work with the Covid-19 distressed. These naysayers include elements from within the film industry who are using either their own accounts or fake ones to try and bring down Sonu and his tireless effort to ease the pandemic pain.
These workless worthless types really are really offputting. It’s like that one honest government officer trying to do his job honestly in a team of corrupt colleagues. The rest of the team cannot bear his honesty.
When I spoke to Sonu Sood about this band of stubborn naysayers who are targeting his good work Sonu said it didn’t bother him. “Such people will always be there in every walk of life. They can’t bear to see me doing what we all need do during these times of crisis. ‘How can he be doing this without an agenda? Zaroor koi daal mein kala hoga. Aur agar nahin hoga toh bana dete hain (if he doesn’t have a hidden agenda then let’s make up one).”
Sonu says the important thing is to do his work. “If I slow down to take note of the people who are trying to discredit me I will be wasting precious time which I’d much rather use to save lives. Besides I don’t want to give them any attention because that’s what they want.”
Well said. It is so typical of us to question anyone who wants to make this world a better place. We’d much rather wallow in trash rather than cleanse the world we live in.
