How true is the famous saying " Put your brain in gear before you open your mouth"! I am saying this after coming to know what some of famous persons said.
First one is a famous star who said " I a doctor's child becomes a doctor or a lawyer's child becomes a lawyer, then no one calls it nepotism but if child of a star enters into same profession it is called so" or words to that effect as reported in newspapers. We may excuse that person's ignorance that to become a doctor one needs to clear entrance examination just to get into Medical college and then sweat out for next 4 to 5 years studying hard to clear examinations to become DOCTOR, even to become a lawyer one needs to get into professional course and clear examinations while to become an actor there is not such criteria.
Second is not only a well educated person but well experienced also who said something which hurt religious sentiments of majority of persons. Later he tried to clarify and when it did not go well, he appologised.
There are many such incidents which support the famous saying which I referred to.
