HOW JUSTICE FOR SUSHANT MEANS JUSTICE FOR ALL

Let me start by saying that I believe actor Sushant Singh Rajput commited suicide. Being a person with fragile mind myself I would know what his thoughts might have been while facing consecutive setbacks in personal and professional life. So those of you who got directed to my site believing this to be about the ever widening conspiracy angle should stop reading right away. Bye the way thank you for clicking on the link.

My theory about the Westernised elite being the most hated group in India is being validated more and more over each passing day thanks to Sushant Singh Rajput drama. His death is basically the 2014 moment for bollywood. 2014 being the year when common man threw out the lutyens elite from the corridors of power. The nepotism debate is nothing but the bollywood equivalent of elitism that is synonymous with the Nehruvian clique, who weilded political power for generations. The air of contempt the likes of Karan Johar shows towards outsiders is same as the one shown to you by the civil service babus or their masters. Hence Justice for sushant is a fight against those who have hoarded power for their sake for generations, making all of us stakeholders in this battle for Sushant.

Today many bollywood celebrities came out against the arrest of Rhea chakraborty designating her the warrior against patriarchy. People in media like Rajdeep Sardesia have been calling it a witch hunt for long. Yes, harrasing the girlfriend for being the girlfriend is not just unfair but inhumane but calling it a “witch”hunt and giving it a feminist tone is misleading propaganda. The high TV ratings that Republic TV has garnered since its inception shows the trust people have in anti Nehruvian(elitist) media. So when Arnab takes up an issue and pitches it as the fight against entriched power centres it is bound to make waves. Then how else would you explain Arnab’s show in half broken Hindi being the highest rated show in the genre and the newly founded Republic Bharat toppling age old Aaj Tak in the last BARC rating. What Republic did was to sell the Sushant story as the one where the Underdog was killed by the Mighty and it was upto his Brethren(rest of us) to avenge the death. But sadly the people in the bubble never realised that and the anti elitist anger started to unleash upon them with great fury . Crying about patriarchy and witchhunt would only inflame the emotions and make the public more virulent. This disgust for the public has always been there among the elite and their sense of superiority and entitlement is nothing new. But the world around them has changed and they will have to come to terms with that. The funny thing is that these elite call themselves liberal and adore Bernie and Biden, but back home they are the 1%. Most of them have Green Cards to Western havens and always wants to remain mere commentators of Indian Politics and not the stakeholders. Thankfully their time is up and it is upto the real Indians to take the mantle of their destiny in their own hands and they are doing it well. Many of you might be subconsciously branding me a sangh affiliate, But the Real Indians that I mentioned include Indians of all colours. As you can see there are positive signals from the Congress too with the willingness of some leaders to shed the Nehru baggage, which I see as a good start (The left parties are a gone cause as their compatriats are bourgeoise to the core , making them farthest from ground realities even in Kerala). The Ram Temple movement could also be seen clearly through this angle of subaltern upheaval, where the Intelligentia repeatedly discredited common man’s belief in Ram(God) with remarks that often hurt their millennia old religious sentiments forcing them to take up arms against the system that fed these oppurtunists . BJP was the first party to tap into this discontent and they are reaping the benefits inturn making them the votaries for this New India of the Real Indians.

This change that has swept politics and now cinema must move to other spheres including bureaucracy and Judiciary. Then only can we call ourselves Fully Independent and the wielders of the reigns of our destiny.

THE INDIAN MATCHMAKING…

The Elite are at it again.. This time it is a show on Netflix about arranged marriages that is getting them triggered. According to them arranged marriages are a part of the regressive feudalistic past which we have done and dusted wtith decades ago , but to see it happening in 2020 among the much tauted futuristic generation have made them go crazy. The most interesting part about the show was that it was purely about matchmaking among the upper classes in India and abroad , and oh boy the English speaking globe trotters talking about docile wives was humour to my middle class ears.

This brings me to the topic of the day – My trials and tribulations of finding a life partner in Modern India. Born to parents who married out of love , I was always a fan of finding your life partner by yourself theory. So when puberty kicked in , my search for true love commenced. Being an average looking nerd , who was effeminate according to macho mallu standards , it was an arduous journey. Though there were many one sided crushes , my first true relationship started in 2010 when I saw her   on the staircase , painting on a t shirt at an Interdental college competition at Thiruvananthapuram. It started with phone calls , progressed to dates and then to the day of Reckoning. By 2014 we had both completed our degrees and were ready to tie the knot. Being from a household where falling in love was never seen as a crime , My parents had been aware of my relationship right from when it started . But the other side was a whole different world.

Ours is a nuclear family in the real sense. It was just the four of us and the extended family was something which we saw only on family functions. They had no say in our lives and we never interfered in theirs. I was wrong in thinking that it was the case with all the Nuclear families. It changed the day when a car full of strangers stopped in front of our house. They were hesitant even to introduce themselves , their air of superiority was there on their sleeves for anyone to see. The first thing one of them said was…”It is not going to happen”. As we were from two different castes , me being a Nair and her being an elayathu , our love does not fit into the age old tradition of endogamy. The funny thing was that one of them was an officer at the irrigation department , the others worked at a cooperative banks ( The shining beacon of communist movement in Kerala) and local self government institutions. Being benefactors of modern secular setup , they were vouching for racial purity making the whole Kerala Model social awakening a joke. Once they left I called my girlfriend who was not even aware of the escapades of her relatives. This rude incident exposed me for the first time to the regressive tyranny of casteism so rampant in our society and also to the dictatorship called extended family. From then on it has been an uphill battle. Finally in 2015 out of desperation we decided to register our marriage at cherpulassery with my parents as the witnesses , which we did. Then one fine morning her parents suddenly grew a pair of spine and decided to stand up for their daughter. So we got married in August 2015 with all of my relatives and just her parents in attendance.

Even to this day none of her family including her parents have apologised to me or my parents for dragging us through the hell that was 2015. Most of her relatives are still not in talking terms with us which talks a lot about their maturity as adults. People like them make up 99 percent of our society so the outlandishness exhibited on screen during Indian matchmaking was nothing new to me. This is the reality of India and it will remain so for centuries to come so dear elite …. Just deal with it….

WHY IAM SICK OF THE ENGLISH SPEAKING URBAN ELITE.

Let me start by acknowledging the fact that like many English medium products, I too was a part of the crowd that Iam about to rant against.so this article is sort of a self realisation piece which unfortunately would not get wider publicity as I do not belong to any “persecuted minorities”.Many before me have written tons of literature about the Indian class which apes the west like the canines therefore I will be skipping that part and moving directly to the crux of my outrage.

Iam sick of the Black Lives Matters thing . Yes African Americans are a persecuted minority and it is an universally acknowledged fact , But tell me , how is it relevant in India?. Racism( except against the people from North East or Africa) is not a pertinent issue in our country and you trying to equate it with colorism or cultural/ religious chauvanism is ridiculous and pathetic at the same time. The English speaking elite’s tendency to draw Indian parallels to American political events is not new but this intellectual slavery to the west must stop somewhere. Why can’t you look inward and question issues within our country. I am talking about the real issues not the politically motivated CAA NRC fiasco or the Naxal insurgency.  But , for that you will have to come out of the bubble and work with the plebs , the cattle class whom you despise. This hypocrisy of this pretentious wannabes is what made me question my indoctrinated beliefs and allegiances.

My story is no different from any (Upper?) Middle class Indian. From day one we are taught the greatness of the west and how we should work towards achieving that zenith of human evolution. You are also told that India was beyond redemption and it would be better to migrate to the garden of eden than to live in this hell. But in the mid 2000s something changed , the rising racist attacks forced them to redraw the curriculum  and it became fashionable to be Indian. If you can’t go to paradise why not make it’s miniature here ?. This resulted in the proliferation of gated communities. But we were not satisfied , 2010s saw the elite taking up causes to bring “change” (Anna Hazare Gandhi) which actually caused a counter revolution and polarisation , pushing BJP to power.  But by that time I was slowly opening up to the real India. So 2014 was not a shock to me unlike many of my compatriots . Then came the awakening in 2019 when the hypocrisy started to unveil as I became a plebian for real. The Class divide became a reality as I was now on the other side of the fence. After the initial repulsion I began to start liking my new world. It was dirty, loud and uncouth , but was Indian to the core. They were proud of this identity and wore it on their sleeves. Today I feel a sense of belonging that I never had in my previous life , one that is rooted in my land.

Though I care nothing about the things that happen in their world , the things like George Flyod is pushed down my throat via the media that cater to them.  My usual response is to swipe down my mobile screen , but you cannot escape it for long. I sincerely hope for an all India English news media outlet that would cater to people like me , so that we don’t have to go through this torture every day.

SUBH MANGAL ZYADA SAVDHAN

Yesterday , while watching the trailer of Subh Mangal Zyada Savdhan trailer something not short of a revelation dawn on me. I was watching a trailer of a gay love story set in Hindi heartland ( cow belt ) while living under a fascist regime. Wow…what? Really?. Then as I started scrolling down to the comment section it got worse. Almost all of the comments were enthusiastic about the concept and surprisingly those who sneered were heavily trolled. But how can this happen during a Nazisque administration , weren’t the homosexuals sent to concentration camps in droves under Hitler?. This is were the English language media narrative about the ruling dispension at the centre starts to unravel.

The problem starts with the liberal belief that globalization is a done deal and hence human beings around the world now constitute a monolith. This generalisation is not restricted to the present but they also see parallels from the past to what is happening today. This lopsided worldview , which clouds their judgement stems from the lack of exposure to the real world outside their echo chambers. Let’s analyse this argument with the prime example of BJP and the duo who call the shots at the centre.

Firstly let us look at the statement – “BJP is a right wing communal party” . Now let us dissect the statement. There is the allegation of being right wing and there is that of being communal. BJP is a nationalist party that prides itself in India’s past glory. Hinduism being the indigeneous religion of the land , it would be natural for them to identify themselves with it. Together with this there is a staunch anti Islamic bias. This stems from the belief that the glorious Indian civilisation started to decline with the Islamic conquest and the ravages it brought with it culminated with the partition of Bharat Mata. For the party and its supporters the fight against Islam is the fight for survival and it is ethical to take any route to success including riots. So BJP is communal.

Now let us look into the right wing aspect of BJP. Though Hinduism is the basis of the party ideology , it cannot be called right wing conservatism. Here is where the anglicised journalists starts to go astray. Hinduism is not a monolithic like Christianity or Islam and is basically an amalgamation of multitude of local beliefs. So one cannot have a Iranian style theocracy in this diverse and more populous land. Brahminism or the priesthood version of vedic religion is being projected as what Hinduism will metamorphosise into under a prolonged spell of BJP rule. But the critics fail to notice the broader caste base of the party cadre today and the anti caste stand of the parent organisation the RSS Moreover the RSS blame the lack of unity that was prevalent during the medieval period as the main reason for the ascend of Islamic forces. So BJP cannot be called conservative in terms of casteism , Moreover it is the least casteist political party in India ( if we look at the caste make up of the top leadership ) and it would rank second behind the BSP in Dalit participation. The failure to notice the difference between BJP and the other conservative entities in the West arises from the elite’s tendency to extrapolate western idioms into Indian reality. In Europe conservative parties are seen as the extension of the dominant church of that country , but India lacks a national church and the dominant religion lacks a theology. Take the movie which we started this post with – subh mangal zyada savdhan , In a western reality homosexuality is a sin and hence the conservatives would be up in arms ( The social reality in the West today cannot be equated with ours as it is more woke , so let’s take the reference point as the 1990s). But Hinduism is vague about sexual ideals and some of the puranic stories even endorse homosexuality. This has resulted in lesser opposition to the removal of article 377 or commercial release of movies with similar story lines. So the argument about BJP’s conservatism also falls apart.

Now comes the most important part – the economic one. All the right wing parties from the conservatives in UK to Republicans in the US are spokespersons of extreme capitalism and globalisation. BJP is an exception here too. Its main ideology is much closer to the left than even congress’s . The cold reception Jeff Bezos received in India shows the movement of BJP closer to the RSS dream of a self sufficient Bharat. In this respect one could see the adoration the BJP cadre has for China , which they yearn to simulate here. The capitalistic set up BJP yearn is also similar to the Chinese government controlled market place with more emphasis on MSME sector. Though the media celebrate the Modi – Ambani nexus , it totally ignores the impetus the government provides for startups and smaller industries. MSME sector is an extrapolation of Gandhian self sufficient Villages in the modern era , which the RSS endorses at great length. Hence it would be correct to call BJP a centre left party in the economic ecosystem.

This is what BJP is , it is a Nationalist Hindu party which is moderately conservative with a centre left ideology. Seeing this party through a western lense cannot help us explain its success or its ever consistent support among the masses.

The average Indian is a nationalist to the core ( Have anyone seen the number of reaction videos on YouTube by foreigners and the self appreciating Indian comments on those pages ) and Hindu ( they make up 80% of the population). The Hindus today are more proud of their heritage than they were 20 years ago thanks to the free flow of information ( or misinformation) through internet and sees no problem in asserting their right over their land. Indians are also sceptical of the elite especially the English speaking upper wafer thin crust who mock at every turn , the liberal culture is often associated with this group and as a counter reaction the masses gravitated towards the moderate conservatism of BJP. The liberal media have painted the anti CAA protests as a student revolt , but the reality is that the protests are limited to a few minority institutions and the left fortress of JNU. Most Indian students come under the category of silent majority that supports the ruling party and are happy with the actions of the government even the fatal shootings. Ordinary Indians also hate the old rich and their previleges , so Modi supporting a self made Ambani group ( thanks to the movie Guru ) is acceptable while a dynast like Rahul Bajaj preaching them sanity is anathema. Unlike the West where the “ordinary” people are the rural white collar folks , Indians come in all hues with the richest to the poorest United by nationalism. This group is inherently centre left due to their disdain for the rich from the license Raj era ( old money ). This brings me to my conclusion that it is not the BJP that moulds the people as the elite in the media wants us to believe but the people who see their projection in BJP or in short the success of BJP can be attributed to the rise of a Nationalistic Hindu populace with a centre left ideology.

THE DONKEY NATION

India is a blemish on the face of this planet. How much i wish this ignorant mass of worthless souls be cast into the abyss of outer space. We don’t deserve democracy nor we deserve this facade of equality. The unending streams of invaders were right in conquering us as this worthless sea of humanity could be nothing more than a slave brigade.

Why should we be given the right to elect our leaders when we never learn from our mistakes?. We as a herd could easily be manipulated by political dimwits with their tacky punchlines of “Mandir ” ,”Garibi” or “Mathil” over and over again. Even after 70 years of existence we could never look past the sacred thread of caste , churning out diktats against intercaste marriages with lethal impunity , all the while hiding under the mask of benovelance. This nation of donkeys should never be called a “paradox” or an “Aberration” , it should instead be called an absurdity which should never be celebrated.

Hinduism must have met the fate of its contemporaries in Rome , Greece or the Andes where a fractured society ruled by the elites was overthrown by faiths which preached equality. I envy Indonesians who escaped its clutches and became a true egalitarian state. This billion caste worshippers could never create a true Nation state or wield power of any stature . So you stupid optimist stop dreaming of a future for this nation of miserables. Let it sink into the ocean for good.

Why is there an opposition to this bill?

1.The bill proposes world class traffic rules on congested Indian roads.

2.The bill proposes to increase the participation of private players in public transport system , which many feel will affect the State Road Transport Corporations. This notion is mainly due to the fact that the bill don’t differentiate between stage carriage permits and contract carriage permits.

3.Heavy penalties would shrink the profitability of trucking industry.

4.The bill excludes pedestrian casualties from its ambit.

5. outsourcing of the licensing process to the private sector.

6. Integration of all the stakeholders into a single system will make the owners use genuine spare parts from authorized dealers , resulting in closure of smaller over the corner mechanics.

IS KYASANUR FOREST DISEASE THE NEXT H1N1?

Kyasanur forest disease or monkey fever is a zoonotic infection commonly seen along the western Ghat region of India , with mortality rate ranging from 4 to 15 % . Though the virus was isolated in 1957 , it was post the wayanad outbreak in 2013 that widespread human causalities were reported . As of April 2015 cases have been reported in Kerala , Karnataka and Goa with higher mortality rates than previously assumed . The rapid spread of the disease over the last two years must have raised alarm among the higher echelons of power , but sadly it is rarely given the due importance . If not addressed immediately it could be the Indian Ebola in the making , as the virus could mutate and start causing human to human transmission .

TRANSMISSION

– monkeys and small mammals like rodents are the main hosts of the disease , and the disease is transmitted through ticks(insect) or when humans come in contact with infected animals.

– infections commonly occur during the clearing of forests for cultivation , when the tick fauna changes dramatically and become infectious . hence it is the forest dwellers and farmers who are the first to get infected.

– Human to Human transmission is rare ( but chances of mutant strains could not be ruled out).

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

– fever, headache, severe muscle pain,cough, dehydration, gastrointestinal symptoms and bleeding problems.

– The second wave of symptoms at the beginning of the third week include fever and signs of encephalitis.

TREATMENT

There are no specific treatment for the disease , the available treatment is supportive in nature.

PREVENTION

prevention methods include use of insect repellents and protective clothing . No specific vaccination is available.

THE HINDU AND ITS POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER aka DENIAL

This blog have always been critical of the recent far leftist turn of the only “true” national news paper – THE HINDU . Since the last article almost a year back ,  the newspaper is still on the path of self destruction , to make the matter worse it has now started publishing pure speculations and false stories as front page news . Here are some of the picks from the last 3 months –

1 . YES WE DID LIE.

This was the most embarrassing moment for the paper in years , when it misconstrued the front page news to favor its leftist agenda.

2 SARASWATI AND THE OSTRICH

Here are two articles questioning the existence of the river saraswati , one of them by a leading leftist historian.

Here is what new age historians have to say in their books on the issue ( Prof Upinder Singh)

Here is another contradictory evidence , this time from the UPSC , where it called Harrapan civilization , the Indus Saraswati civilization . This question paper is from the 2013 mains exam ( when UPA was in power , hence no question of  saffronisation )

3 . THE FANATICS ATTACK TV STATION

The attack on a news channel by fringe elements in Tamil Nadu made it to the front page . This is a channel that was never heard before and its viewership base hardly existed . Paranoia best describes this article.

4 CHINA IS THE BEST

It is OK for china to spread its culture , but the moment we plan such an endeavor , its Hindu nationalism.

5 THE LAND WITHOUT BEEF 

This could be true , but the source mentioned is irrelevant ( BJP cow protection cell??) , hence a big front page headline is sensationalistic at the best . This is the same newspaper which once mocked Times Of India for its journalistic policies with some quirky ads on YouTube.

6 THE LAND ORDINANCE FLIP FLOPS

This ran for weeks with “sources” giving “exclusive” bytes , with some even going to the extent that the newspaper reported once that the government was planning to let the ordinance lapse.

7 THE MODI GOVERNMENT IS CASH STRAPPED

This article sourced from Reuters have many loopholes , which the newspaper never double checked . Here the Hindu lost its credibility to appease its leftist leanings.

 8 BENGAL CIVIC POLLS – BJP COULD WAS PATHETIC AS IT JUST INCREASE ITS TALLY FROM 3 TO 7 (+233%), BUT LEFT MARGINALLY LOST FROM 25 TO 5 (-80%)

 

The newspaper seems to have never come to terms with the results of the last general elections . Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is common after great tragedies , and denial is one of its symptoms . But one year is a long time especially for a newspaper of its stature.
