Shubh Deepawali and Political NGOs

October 13, 2009

Come diwali and we see many rodents coming out from their underground burroughs.

Essentially these are of two types: (a) Xian (b) Communist

One will shout that Diwali causes pollution, exploits child labor. Another will hector that crackers cause cancer. Rogue big media which is funded by isaiislamilaal syndicates will play along magnifying the noise. Children especially are targetted to be brainwashed and natives trained to hate their own traditions.

Of course you will not find of any of these organizations making any brouhaha on Hajj journey, which results in most collosal wastage of resources (both personal and worse taxpayer’s). Also come December and the collossal wastage of energy and cutting of trees (green house emission anyone?) that accompanies the non native abomination, xian celebration of great hoax (virgin conception indeed?), aspects that never get critiqued let alone questioned. India is a strange place where pure evil deceits in action that cheat natives dont get questioned, worse get eulogized. One does not get to see in the media how Christian & islamic food habits are not just unhealthy but have been cited in global warming.

The real reason Diwali gets targeted is this: To undermine native Indian traditions and beliefs. There is another raisondetre for targeting native Indian festivities: During holi, native children use water gun, and in Diwali, toy guns, fireworks. For natives both the festivities represent lot of fun. Enemies of natives seek to completely enervate natives and cut down Khatriya/Khalsa spirit, which totalitarians see as a threat and want to see fully neutered. Christian fascists have achieved great success in neutering Hindus because of mediocre leadership among natives.

This criticism of native traditions happens as muslims use crackers during Eid, xian fascists Diwalify their great hoax (use crackers on x-mas). And appropriate  native traditions like ‘Vijayadashami Aksharabyas’, claiming them xian. Dont fall for the  canards spread by christian groups wearing native/irreligious/social-service masks like ‘asha‘, ‘worldvision‘ etc.

Government would do well to ensure Xians/muslims are forbidden from using crackers for their festivals. It isnt their tradition. Bennet and Coleman, Andhashradha Nirmulan Samiti kind of charlatans would do well to rake up and eradicate superstitions that make up islam/xianity for betterment of India/world. Too many people go around that believe in hoaxes like virgin giving birth, flying in winged horse to heaven, dead men coming back from the graveyard et al.

As for my dear native Indian (Hindu, Jain, Sikh) friends, paraphrasing Deng, in native Indian tradition, to be prosperous and happy is glorious. Enemies of happiness, those who create and peddle poverty and sin are the enemies of native Indians, in case of India (rogue groups like communists/CON party [congress I (isai)].

So, dear reader, celebrate the triumph of Dharma by lighting up your home, wearing your new clothes, and by lighting your seven shots, your flower pots, zameen chakers, sparklers and by exploding your crackers. It is Indian government’s Hydrogen Bomb that was a dud, not the ones from Sivakasi. Do ensure that your security remains paramount by maintaining distance from crackers, and that crackers are handled under adult supervision. And that loud decibel crackers maintain distance from infants and senior citizens. BJP/Sangh leaders, native organizations with funds would do well to contribute lights, new clothes, crackers for poor people and light up happiness in their homes.

Shubh Diwali

NDTV Barkha Dutt – Suppressio Veri

October 8, 2009

Suppress the truth is among first cardinal principles of totalitarians. NDTV with close connections to communists has repeatedly practised this principle.

Here one can see how they have influenced Vanity Fair magazine to suppress the truth of their dirty role contributing to casualties/placing in danger innocents during Mumbai terror attacks of November 26, 2008 carried out by islamic terrorists.

Vanity Fair carried an article by Marie Brenner, Letter from Bombay capturing the related events. Original Version had following contents highlighting NDTV barkha dutt’s dirty role enabling islamic terror.

Once the truth was pointed, NDTV got to work, got the original version of Marie’s post censored. Now the Doctored Version alone can be seen at Vanity Fair site with the reference to Barkha dutt removed.

barkha dutt censored version 2 jpegBarkh Dutt’s deceits for islamofascists and against Indian natives is not new. It can be seen as NDTV abused Native Indian God Durga, abused Native Indian Gujaratis and undermines India through disinformation. Major chunk of Indian media has long been a roguish one dealing directly in deceit. The interplay of connections, by no means exhaustive that monopolise mass manufacturing falsehood is presented here. India is incidentally a strange place where all the totalitarian dogmatic trinities islam, communism, xianism converge.

Rogue Media Network There is no short cut but citizen vigilance which can defeat the above forces of totalitarian dogmatic evil.

Update: November 26, 2009: On the first anniversary of Islamic terror attack, Chief chef of Taj Hotel referred to rogue media’a islamic terror boosting role.


Dharma Cola and Gurcharan Das

October 6, 2009

Ex Proctor and Gamble Executive Shri Gurcharan Das these days has been evangelizing (and pontificating) on Dharma and Mahabharat(MB) a lot. He has authored a book  ‘The Difficulty of Being Good: On the Subtle Art of Dharma’. Either his  father’s native spirit’s calling was tough for Gurcharan to resist or he could not resist an opportunity using PR and his networking links to position his undeserving self as an authority on MB.

This post an outcome of two responses to his blog posts, acts as a reality check – both on the merit of his recent work and its relevance.

On September 27, Gurcharan blogged: Is the middle path the way to peace with Pakistan?”. In the blog Gurcharan wrote MB would advocate middle path of negotiation”. The following responses are not limited to his blog posts but the  wider positions he has taken elsewhere as well.

Gurcharan

Mahabharat as we native Indians know is an engaging text. So any synthesis/analysis based
on it is bound to be interesting.
There are errors in your allegorical references to Mahabharat. You have tried retro
fitting Yudhishtr within cages of your contrived conception. Such an effort howsoever
interesting it might sound is unlikely to be an effective vehicle for propogation of
Dharma. One needs to be careful that they dont end up violating Taittriopanishad’s basic
Dharmic dictum – ‘Satyam Vada’.
Dice game in Sabha Parv was not rigged. MB explicitly points Yudhishtr’s love for game of
dice and his competence in the game (Shakuni of course was better. As an aside ignorant
folks will be surprised to realise that in Vyasa’s MB, Shakuni was not in favor of
Duryodan’s dispossessing Yudhishtr. When first consulted he in fact recommends harmonious
coexistence)
In MB Yudishtr manifests the intent to be anointed Chakravarthin (Some might call this
intent Greed). Hence his Raja Suya Yagn. He voluntarily enters the game and one of his
motivation is he can win Duryodhan’s assets (again some might call this motivation
greed). On these considerations, it is tough to blame either Yudhishtr or for that matter
Duryodhan for his intent to dispossess Yudhishtr of his kingdom considering the
conception of kshatriya dharma. One cant blame China for wanting to be the middle
kingdom, nor US for formulating strategic containment of China.
You have referred to Yudhishtra’s deploying his commitment to “Vaak” as to why he should
not immediately fight it out. In the Yudhishra-Draupadi-Pandav Sambhashan in Vana Parv,
one of the reasons Yudhishtar does not immediately opt for war is because of the strength
of Duriyodan’s mobilisation potential. It was not just the word. He was wanting to build
capability. And as we know in Dron Parv, Yudhishtr and Bhim indeed short sell Dharma.
Pandits have their own reasons why Yudhishtr was not the right person for receiving
Gitacharya’s message. There in lies your possible mistake in depicting Yudhishtr as hero
for voicing realist position.
In the Udyog Parv when confabulations happen on sending emissary to Duryodhan’s court,
Balaram takes the position “Once Yudhishtr has gambled away his assets, he cant demand
them back by right, or by coerceive threat of violence”. So neither the case for war nor
the outcome can be interpreted in digital terms. Duryodhan’s last General ensured Pandav
victory was pyrrihic.
Interpreting native concepts from a western perspective is not a crime. But usually the
spirit of the work is better carried and reflected when the perspective is inside out;
Paul Brunton and Edwin Arnold worked from the inside-out perspective. The outside in
perspective from the likes of Stuart Mill, Macaulay, Nehru introduced Vishama into the
native soceity. It makes me think you could have saved yourself and the reader time, and
delivered superior output by investing a bit of your time by learning what makes Dharma
from native Indian sources. While skepticism on assertions by natives is not necessarily
an error, bypassing them possibly is a serious mistake considering the nature of subject
-Dharma.
Check out the outcome of an effort which strikes heart of the matter and provides far
superior guidelines on practicing art of Dharma than the otherwise engaging effort from
you.

Your amateurish effort articulating Dharma can be a stepping stone for interested readers
towards understanding Dharma. You/reveiwers should desist from presenting your work on
Dharma from an authoritative perspective. It can at best be a kindergarten’s source for
learning about Dharma – work in progress understanding Dharma. Your penchant to
articulate “Mahabharata/Bhisham Pitamaha says do this…do that”..is best avoided on
account of your clear inadequate acquaintance on the subject, lack of subject matter
expertise. There in lie concerns about your book,its narrative.
This is not to denigrate your amateur’s effort. ZIM believes that while there are serious
shortcomings in your narration, by affirming the current relevance of native Indian
tradition and alluding to its superiority over dogmatic totalitarian ones, and by
connecting your corporate experience to Yudhishtra’s challenges, you seem to have made
your book relevant.

Food for mind on your blog post: Just as Hastinapur/Indraprasth/Gandhara shenanigans was
fixed by someone from Dwaraka, should Indians again need to look at Gujarat for solution
as Ratan Tata, other nationalist Indians assert?

Mahabharat as we native Indians know is an engaging text. So any synthesis/analysis based on it is bound to be interesting.

There are errors in your allegorical references to Mahabharat. You have tried retro fitting Yudhishtr within cages of your contrived conception as the prima donna of MB.

Interpreting native concepts from a western perspective is not a crime. But usually the spirit of the work is better carried and reflected when the perspective is inside out; Rajaji et al. worked from the inside-out perspective and made meaningful contributions. The outside in perspective from the likes of Stuart Mill, Macaulay, Nehru introduced Vishama into the native soceity. It makes one think you could have saved yourself and the reader time, and delivered superior output by investing a bit of your time by learning what makes Dharma from native Indian sources. While skepticism on assertions by natives is not necessarily an error, bypassing them is a serious mistake especially considering the nature of subject -Dharma. Tendency to interpret native texts for non natives usually necessitates confirming to one sine qua non – thorough understanding of native traditions on the text. Pretentious smattering of Sanskrit words can never be a substitute for poor research and ignorance.

Gurcharan also blogged on what he called The Dilemma of a liberal Hindu

Namaskar

(BTW There are people offended by this innocuous word Namaskaar, especially the ones that believe Diwali is pollution causing wastage of resources while xmas is celebration of greatest thing that ever happened)

This is an outcome of the xian/islamic civilisational assault that goes on against native Indian beliefs under the garb of secularism. You are perceptive enough to understand that the above assertion is not untrue. Indian Government’s selective targeting of temple control, temple property, attack on Karnataka priests at Pashupatinath temple by communists in Nepal are some of the manifestations of this assault.

When someone equivocates between seculars and Hindutvavadis, s/he is probably guilty of the 1/4th sin that Mahabharat apportions to the silent accomplice to the crime that cites “Hamaam Mein Sab Nange Hain” and refuses to take a Dharmic position. The blog post on Radha Krishna speaks out why the costs of absence of moral clarity on this issue will remain high.

Common natives instinctively seem to understand the moral position and ground realities better than the intellectuals. There are chowkidars of apartments that see with perspicacity, RSS is one force standing between complete islamiisaisation of India/undermining India’s native traditions. Though of course RSS has its short comings.

Heart of the issue in India is that Dharma has a higher chance of success with RSS/BJP on the reins rather than Congress I, which is today a preferred vehicle for isai and islami agendas. Even some business people and leaders like E Sreedharan instinctively seem to grasp this as they publically bat for NaMo, BJP though many do not get it.


Patha Nahin Kaise Kaise Log Chale Aathe Hain

October 4, 2009

Latest Uniliver India ad is interesting.

There is a fat fair seth sitting inside an air conditioned chaffeur driven car stopping at traffic junction.

A sweating brown Indian boy in a bicycle stops near by. And the Seth comments with unhidden sarcasm “Patha Nahin Kaise Kaise Log Chale Aathe Hain” (Look which vermin have started).

The boy, wears his tie in double quick time and retorts – “Uncle, there is just a difference of two wheels between your vehicle and mine”.

Apart from the sheer racist rant inherant in the transaction, the ad tries and projects the confidence of the boy. Or does it?

While it can be considered that a car can be a potential aspiration for many if not most in India, this is not a given, considering the terrible driving experience on most Indian roads.  This even if we dont take into account problems of pollution et al. generated by proliferation of cars.

What is even more problematic is the projection of wearing tie as an aspiration for Indian boy. Tie symbolises xian west (covertly if not overtly).

While Tie has its merit in engaging with some westerners, its utility in other circumstances in India is dubious and may potentially be harmful – unsuitability in hot and humid Indian environ, wry neck problem et al. Quality ads such as this one present their perspectives without offending native tradions.

So the ad raises interesting questions:

1. Are there any native Indian organisations that can see through the charade and engage with Uni Lever

2. Will Mee Mumbaikar MNS rogue Raj Thakeray, who with the Congress I (islami-isai) support believes in beating up North Indians at the drop of the hat will focus on the issue? Of course his children go to a xian school!

3. Are their regulating authorities that can validate the suitability of such ads?


Musings on Mohandas Gandhi – Balanced and Factual Perspective

October 2, 2009

Today is Gandhi Jayanthi. There will be divergent reactions about him among knowledgeable Indians both extremist.

One school will use hyperbole; eulogise him as architect of Indian freedom, God’s own representative on earth. Another school will pillary him as the rogue that undid India through his utopian ideals.

Gandhi was human and reflected many of man’s frailities.

His contribution lay in showing british for who they were – ugly imperialists and asking them to wind up using passive resistance means. His passive resistance and reconciliation based approaches motivated Martin Luther King to break racist logjam in United States and motivate Nelson Mandela on effecting reconciliation with whites in South Africa. Though it must be highlighted, as was pointed by George Orwell and others , Gandhi was helped by British willingness to deal with him on their premise that Gandhi’s disruptiveness is manageable and in some ways useful.

His ideas on minimum Government intervention on people’s lives was a sensible position. He himself unfortunately undermined this by chosing a maximum government votary; Gandhi’s inability to walk the talk on many occaasions was a perennial shortcoming.

Gandhi had serious shortcomings and negative aspects of his legacy cant be swept under the carpet.

  • He probably did not realise that his concept of passive resistance would not fit in with all  situations. Worse his taking up a moral equivalence position between non dogmatic native Indian beliefs and dogmatic islam has had heavy costs.
  • His authoritarian streak has been under represented by scholars. Gandhi witheld all cooperation from Subhash Bose for defying his diktat and contesting AICC elections. Subash had contested and emerged victorious in AICC elections. Much more serious mistake was foisting that abomination jawaharlal nehru on native Indians. This when Congress Working Committee to the man had backed Sardar Patel. With great difficulty Gandhi’s well wishers like C Rajagoplachari stopped him from taking in Sarla Devi, a married woman as additional spouse, something on which Mohandas was adamant. Gandhi though continued with what some would call perverse sexual experiments.
  • Perhaps his greatest shortcoming was undermining Dharma,  subverting Gita’s Message and propogating  a narrow pacifist weltanschuang.

There will be two judgements on Gandhi – one by History and one by Providence. It is not necessary that they would match.


Dada Manna Dey at Last Gets Phalke Award

October 1, 2009

Dada Manna Dey gets Dada Saheb Phalke award, for lifetime contribution to Indian cinema.  His real name is Prabodh Chandra Dey. He was born to Purna Chandra (father) and Mahamaya Devi (mother) in 1919.

He worked with top music directors of the time between 1940s and 1970s, though arguably some of his best hits he belted with Shankar Jaikishen and Vasant Desai. Few of his hits are presented below to commomerate the  occasion.

This was a hilarious song picturised on thespian Jewish actor David in a jail situation singing Malhar inviting Rain (movie: Boot Polish)

This was a song reflecting India’s Eastern UP/Bihar culture

Song on Hindu Bhakti – Bhajan.

Song reflecting native Indian dance tradition

Qawaali Song

 

(There are some who wonder at muslim participation in India’s Hindu cultural mileau. Islamic injunctions rule out fine arts as Islam accepts music only if it is for glory of islam. Power of native Indian culture was such that many Islamic rulers despite islamic injunctions took to native Indian culture. This was beautifully captured by Satyajit Ray in Shatranj ke Khiladi. What passes off as culture in areas like pakistan today as culture (Ganga Jamuna Tehzeeb) is quintessentially Indian. Regions where islam is older in greater Hindustan areas like Afghanistan, native tradition in fine arts has been brutally cut down by forces of islam. Mahaan Rafi, India’s great Singer successfully braved the challenge of islamic forces that wanted to stop him from singing. Naushad Ali, music composer ran off from his Lucknow home as his islamic family frowned on his music interest. Probability in places like Pakistan is it will go the islamic way and make pakistanis get converted to little meccan arabs unless they take a strong stand against islamic dogma)

Manna Dey carried the aspirational V Shantaram movie “Toofan aur Diya” on his shoulders through the songs Nirbal Se Ladaai Toofan Ki.

Dada Manna Dey’s humility as a singer can be perceived from his comments on his remarkable colleague Mahaan Rafi.

Dada goes on to lament about downfall in standards – in lyrics, in music composition and singers. PR mandated media based deceit subverting genuine talent immensely pained Dada. One can get a feel of this in the Vande Matharam versions – original one sung by Lata and the subverted one here.
