Swapan Dasgupta – Running with the Hare, Hunting with the Wolves?

March 8, 2014

(Most Hindus are naive and historically it has been easy to CON them. Simple slogans – “Garibi Hatao”, “Aam Admy” is what it took to fool them. Other simplistic slogans conning many Hindus include “Right”, “Center Right”, and these are often covers for maliciously peddling SickuLiarism and anti-Hindu hate, while feigning understanding and sympathy. These perversions result in half baked and ignorant efforts to describe India’s problems, prescriptions that are not rooted in native realities, and destined to fail.  Many of the people shaping these anomalies define themselves  based on western frame works – as right of center, or conservative, or classical liberal, or libertarian etc. Insightful would tend to call such people as Sickuliar Right or HINO (Hindu in Name Only) or BINO (Bharatiya in Name Only) or IBCDs (Indian Born Confused Desis) or simply confused desis. Let us define these people and the anomalous positions they are projecting as SickuLiar Right, for convenience and also because  many of them seem to have discomfort asserting their native identities in public space. Cunning among them wear a native facade exceedingly well (Mein Bi Hindu Hoon Deceit), but the mask slips as you scrutinize their positions on substantive issues. Here we catch Swapan Dasgupta while his mask is slipping. Not a surprising media crooks like Rajdeep Sardesai etc introduce Swapan Dasgupta as “Rightist”, “BJP sympathizer” etc. Best selling Author, Rajiv Malhotra has a lot to do with the masks slipping from the faces of closet SickuLiars. Rajiv’s work has resulted in organized efforts at abusing/undermining/demonizing him)

Writing in Open Magazine, Swapan Dasgupta (SD) pens lots of canards. The goal of course is to confuse further the already bewildered Hindus. This post was a quick review on the Swapan piece.

SD writes

As someone firmly committed to the dismantling of protectionist barriers, I argued that the media could hardly claim special status.

At a superficial level, SD’s take on media looks a reasonable take. Let us examine this further. AB Vajpayee actions, listening to such half baked wisdom, resulted in India’s main stream media becoming what it is today – corrupt, controlled by dubious and a den for crooked. To understand the effect of dismantling that SD cites, read on about one of Delhi’s media mughals – NDTV Prannoy Roy.

The real issue when we are dealing with the economy as always is the national interest, and creation of level playing field. Apart from the government, incumbent businessmen do try to impose self-serving protectionist barriers often under the cover of “free market”, and “right to choice” shibboleths. For eg – check out Bill Gates specious defense for GM food.

February 17, 2013

Ashutosh Varshney Sepoy

Ashutosh Varshney is charlatan and a good example of how chicanery and sepoyism operate. Read on to understand further.

Self-styling himself as an “intellectual” he peddles many canards perhaps deliberately. On, America, Ashutosh Varshney writes

The US allows hyphens: Irish-American, Italian-American, Jewish-American, Chinese-American, Indian-American are all accepted categories.

Varshney is silent on xn American identity and the Hindu American identity. The elaborate efforts to undermine Hindu identity in the US has been captured in the book Invading the Sacred.

How American polity defends its xn Identity, undermines Hindu identity and how India undermines its Hindu identity and promotes xn identity can seen in this fact based post here. Read the rest of this entry »


IBN Lies Live

October 27, 2009

Foreign funded IBN Lies Live has a history of undermining native Indians. A section from their news program is provided here.

Take the polls that follow

The interplay of connections, by no means exhaustive that monopolise mass manufacturing falsehood is presented here.

Rogue Media Network

Interplay of IBN Lies Live, Editor Sagarika Ghose’s connections is provided here. It appears that family connections rather than merit propelled Sagarika Ghose to the editorship of IBN Lies Live.

And of course Rajdeep Sardesai family proudly funds christian fascist worldvision which under the cover of social service does serious jesus evangelism. More on world vision which is led by Congress party Rajya Sabha MP, Radhakant Nayak (christian with Hindu sounding name) here.

And we will see Rajdeep Sardesai with a straight face claiming his channel is unbiased and will talk about the propriety of dynasty politics. Touche! Joke is on us, those who watch manufactured deceit from IBN Lies Live!
