There are different kinds of slaps. The slap that Anupam Kher got from Dilip Kumar in Karma, jiski goonj kafi der tak suniye di thi. The slap that roadside Romeos receive from girls or their fathers “Haramzade, teri yeh majaal ki tu meri beti to tang kare” The slap that kids get from their parents, the slap that students get from teachers.
Among all these the best slap I have ever heard about is the slap of friendship, woh “Dosti wala thappar” jo Shahrukh Khan ne Shirish Kunder ko mara. After which Shirish has reported to have said “Shahrukh Khan and me are better friends now than we ever were.
After the discovery of this miraculous slap, instead of offering an olive branch to my enemies, I offer than a Dosti wala thappar. This offer is open to friends as well jo dosti aur pakki karna chahte hain.
Now I know that Gandhi was on to something when we advised us to turn the other cheek if we are slapped on one.
