    Default I pray for SRK: Amar Singh

    Follow us on Social Media

    Amar Singh is hale and hearty and recuperating from surgery in

    But heís not too pleased with Shah Rukh Khan. Says Singh, ďHe says heíll pray for my physical and mental health. Why? Because I commented on his detention at the US airport? Please tell him that Iím fine, both physically and mentally. But I pray for a better zubaan for Shah Rukh. He must understand that I didnít comment on him. I commented on an issue much larger than his detention. Where were those four central ministers whoíve been so vocal about Shah Rukhís detention, when Abdul Kalam was detained at an airport? Why didnít they speak up then? Why has Shah Rukhís detention become a national issue? If it has, letís immediately cancel all diplomatic ties with the US.Ē

    Singh says that such detention at international airports is no big deal. ďIndians are stripped and frisked routinely at London airport. Amitji has been similarly detained in France and Switzerland. Have you ever heard him complain? And he isnít even a Khan. My wife was detained at an international airport recently. So whatís the hue and cry about?Ē

    On a more cheerful note, the sharp-tongued politician is happy with his recuperation. ďMy kidney transplant has been performed successfully. But Iím here in Singapore till at least September 10, under medical observation. After that, Iím free to return. But I havenít really taken a decision on when to return. Iím very happy here. My wife is here, and so is my elder brother, Amitji. I wonít insult our relationship by saying heís my friend. Friends toh aate jaate hain, sukh-dukh mein. No friend does what Amitjiís done for me. Heís been with me here, looking after me. I mustíve done something really good in my past life to deserve this.Ē

    Singh says his health deteriorated because of the way the Congress government used him during the last Lok Sabha elections. ďI completely blame the Manmohan Singh government. They needed me to increase their vote bank in certain areas and to fight certain elements in UP. When Soniaji requested me, I couldnít say no, although she had treated Jayaji rather badly, had my phones tapped, and been unfair to Mulayam Singhji. But I went all out, at the cost of my health.Ē

    Now this voluble politician has learnt his lesson. ďToday, I know nothing matters more than my health. Not my political allies, for sure. If I died, what would they do? Hold a condolence meeting and move on. Mahatma Gandhi, Nehruji, Indiraji, Rajivji Ė they all died. But the government and the world moved on. No. Iíve realised that only family and a few close friends matter, like my brother Amitji, Anil Ambani and Sanjay Dutt.Ē

    Singh intends to change his political strategy after his return. ďIím done with running around, even for my own party. Thatís for sure. Iíll take it easy. God has given me a second life and I intend to make the best of it. I wonít be bending backwards to be help my colleagues. I now know their worth.Ē

    He also chooses to dissociate himself from the film industry. ďI donít belong to the film industry. I donít have any links there. The fact that Amitji is an actor is just a coincidence.Ē

    The kidney donor is apparently a very close member of Amar Singhís permanent staff. Says Singh, ďIíd appreciate it if his name isnít mentioned. My donor is very close to me, and not even from my community.

    Heís a simple man from the village. He wants no publicity. His generosity has saved my life. Itís amazing how much of what God has given us is taken for granted until itís almost snatched away from us.Ē

    Happy and comfortable in Singapore, the only absence in Amar Singhís life is his twin daughters. ďI do miss them. But they have school to attend in Delhi. I talk to them every day via video conference.Ē
