The Stand Up Guys and the Satirists are Showing the Mirror

When the media has largely failed in its duty, it is the satirists and humorists and stand up comedians who are showing the mirror. Be it print media (Krishna Shastri Devulapalli in The Hindu, Appupen of Brainded) or the outrageous videos on YouTube these guys are doing what no other artist is daring to do - say it like it is. After seeing the Raju Hirani and his actor brigade video and reading about the tweets of the sportspeople, these guys deserve a standing applause.

Art if anything else, should be fearless. Today these are the only voices remaining.

Here are some..
Rajeev Nigam

Varun Grover

Kunal Kamra

Abhijit Ganguly

Zakir Khan (understandably not the kind of stuff the other guys can do and get away)
