Celebrities and their ways...

Singer Lata Mangeshkar threatens to leave Mumbai if the Maharastra government goes ahead with their plans to build a fly over on Peddar Road. The government claims that the fly over is the only solution to ease the traffic jams in the area. Well, I am not too sure if the Governments claim is valid as Mumbai and Rocket Science are synonymous to me. It also seems that the Public Works Minister plans to meet her personally and explain why the government would go ahead with this project. And to top it all, the proposal was shelved in 2001 by the instence of Lata and Asha. I can't stop from asking my self the following questions:

Arent all citizens in India to be treated equally? Are these people, the celebrities, above the law of the land?

What would have happenned had the affected people were common folks instead of Lata and Asha?

Do such people deserve Bharth Ratna?

The Government can think of treating them as PEddar Road OOStees( as in Narmada) and rehabilitate them at a good real estate site in Mumbai..
Does Mumabi really needs such people?
