Bhai, I am more interested why Shankar despite his prodigious talents chose the career of a coolie

With his talent and dedication, one would expect Prabhuji to be in the army (Loha, Military Raj) or a policeman. But here is why he chose to be a coolie :
- Paap pe pooth, pita pe ghoda..... he has inherited the traits from his father and has the skills to join the force, which even the commissioner acknowledges, but Prabhuji's intention is to get rid of the criminals and he does not like being bound by the code within which the police operate. Note how, his father pleads to the inspector to arrest chutiya for his daughters murder. He is bound by the law to first find "saboot". Prabhuji on the other hand says 2..4..6..8..10..Bas.
- Prabhuji is a janta ka sevak, as showmn in the wwf-style fight in the port. What better way to interact with people than to be a coolie. Mind you Indian Railways is the largest employes in the world and he would want to spread the word around to all their employees. He is a part of the all-porters association and thats why he is seen at the Airport and the seaport.
- Also, the best way to get rid of the smuggling is by blocking it at the point of entry.. with his Porter network its a piece ofcake....Maybe he should be called Hari(shankar)-Porter !
