Many people are or have been in some job or other where circumstances and demands of the work compel them to put their mind over their heart. But ironically, whenever an employee needs to improve the employer or the boss generally doesn’t say “use your mind”. The advice or encouragement usually is “put your heart in the work” or as they say in Hindi “thoda dil laga ke kaam karo”. In other words, the suggestion is to put some passion into the work. Sunetra Chaudhary of NDTV would be very different on TV if she were allowed to use her heart. She doesn’t get to do that so she writes in DNA. There was that case over a year ago when she wrote about sexual harassment by a UPA minister which NDTV buried. Recently she wrote another piece from her heart called “Why desi netas will never charm the English media” in DNA. It’s a simple but one of the most honest pieces I have read in print. Sunetra mentions how the nonsense of Salman Khurshid’s “Acne” comment about China’s incursion in Ladakh hardly raised any eyebrows in the English media. She further writes:
“So even when he stooped to the level of street fights by saying things like: “I’ve been made a minister so I work with a pen but I can also work with blood,” some of us stepped in to explain to the rest-of-us-language-culture-impaired folks that his words were actually a ‘figure of speech’ and by getting offended by Khurshid’s words, we were just exposing our own lack of sophistication”. You see, all the suave Anglais types can say anything and people are ignorant or lack sophistication if they don’t get it. But if the desi guys say the same things they would be called uncouth, misogynists, uncivilised etc. If Khurshid had made a comment like “a love affair worth 50 crores” that would have been considered poetic but Modi saying “50cr girlfriend” is obviously tasteless. This is how the English media conducts its discussions by licking the feet of those who can speak fluent English, throw a quote or two from English Literature and make a mockery of national issues and national security.
The survival of the Congress party is detrimental to the progress of India is what I wrote in my previous post. A day later, Salman Khurshid, Manish Tiwari and Shashi Tharoor offered more evidence for it in their pronouncements on Sarabjit Singh and other issues of national security. Collectively, these people heap insults on Indians but they do it stylishly in English so it all passes. After his moronic “Acne” remark Khurshid followed it up with stating India is like Muhammad Ali, the great boxer. He was trying to imply that like a boxer India can take a lot of punches and beating but will come out the winner in the end. Meaning Pakistan, China, Bangladesh, Maldives and all their uncles and aunties can keep screwing this country but India will take the blows and come out a winner. Quite heroic, eh? What Khurshid doesn’t know about his idiotic comparison is that Ali always claimed he had a pretty face and never a scar. He floated like a butterfly and the song says “Im Ali.. Catch me if you can”. In contrast every neighbour seems to have caught India by the scruff of her neck and wringing it at will. Khurshid is a coward who is trying humour in a crisis that is debilitating to the self-esteem of Indians.
History has it that most land encroachments and theft of our territories has happened under Congress watch given they have been in power for most of our 65 years of absence of the British. Let’s catch up with history though. Here’s what Rajinder Puri wrote in November 2011 about the Congress and he was being kind in seeking a reinvention of the party:
“In 1976 in violation of a unanimous Parliamentary resolution that still stands, forbidding any truck with China until all territory illegally seized by it is recovered, in violation also of a policy decision that unless China agreed to the Colombo Proposals hammered in an international Asian conference India would not talk with China, Mrs. (Indira) Gandhi nevertheless went ahead and established full diplomatic relations with China. She betrayed the memory of her father and the national interest. Why? The only explanation appears to be that around that time America under President Carter was on the point of clinching the process of normalization with China initiated earlier by President Nixon. Like a puppet on a string Mrs. Gandhi somersaulted and went against declared policy and the national interest”.
So Indira Gandhi violated a resolution of the parliament to appease China. Don’t be surprised if China becomes a permanent guest in the encroached land and also makes incursions in Arunachal. Before you know it Mr. Khurshid, the current Mrs. Gandhi may also forget the sins of the grandmother. And Manish Tiwari would happily say NDA did nothing about Indira Gandhi’s appeasement of China. Coward! Hardly floating and stinging like Muhammad Ali, is it? This is the same manner in which Congress appeases Pakistan for vote-bank politics after each of their crime gets bigger and worse.
Rajdeep Sardesai had vowed not to tweet on politics after being trashed on Twitter. Well, can’t keep the “Numero Uno political analyst” off politics for too long. After Sarabjit was butchered to death he came up with the lamest statement indirectly justifying his killing claiming he was calling “a spade a shovel”. He tweeted that while talking about Sarabjit we shouldn’t forget under-trials in our own prisons. I had to remark that this was the equivalent of saying that because the crime of land encroachment is widespread in India it justifies China’s encroachment and incursion in Ladakh. Such is the stupidity of Rajdeep who has a twisted sense of justice that even in a crime by the enemy he wants to find faults with India. I guess he is what Arnab Goswami referred to as “Pak apologists” on the Newshour on May 2. Sadanand Dhume explains to Rajdeep that an equivalent would have been our butchering of a Pak prisoner. I wonder if Rajdeep gets it. We actually treat our foreign prisoners like royalty. Feed them endless biryani and allow them to go home to even vote or celebrate Christmas. The coward that Rajdeep is, he won’t see this and will keep drawing wrong parallels.
Rajdeep is the Oxbridge guy. If he had said the same nonsense in Hindi or some Indian language the whole media would have butchered him verbally. While at it, how can we forget another Oxbridge type? This one is probably the biggest hypocrite floating around in India and he goes by the name of Shashi Tharoor. Like Manish Tiwari he asks why no govt had done anything about Sarabjit earlier. He even recalls, as a patriot, the incidents of Kandahar and Coffingate over the Sarabjit murder and how sick he feels. This is Congress moronery at its best. For the number of times the Congress recalls Kandahar not one Gandhi-slave from the party has ever mentioned how he would have handled it differently. The Kandahar episode was in a difficult terrain across two hostile countries and saved lives. In the case of Congress Indians are being killed or beheaded when there was abundant warning. Tharoor talks of Coffingate. This is another lie. The Coffingate scam was investigated and even George Fernandes was cleared of any wrong doing. And then stooges like Manish Tiwari and Tharoor will scream “let’s not politicise it” but that’s exactly what they do.
It has become a trick for the Congress and their channels like NDTV, CNN-IBN, Headlines Today that when the Congress failure is exposed they will scream “let’s not politicise” when in fact they will politicise everything. Mr. Golden Spoon or Mr. Pappu or Rahul Gandhi as he is also referred to, rushed to Dalbir Kaur’s house to hug her and put up a drama for the cameras. Till Sarabjit’s murder RahulG didn’t have one word to say about him or to the Pakistanis. Pappu usually doesn’t have anything to say on anything, so he is a consistent coward. But death is such a great opportunity for the Congress and the media to scavenge. The simple truth is that this Congress and its spineless PM have more Indian blood on their hands without a shot being fired than any other govt in the past has. This very Shashi Tharoor was moderating a debate on “Aman Ki Asha”, with Paki journalists, a day after the LOC beheadings in January 2013. That’s the concern and sympathy he has for soldiers killed in defending us. There isn’t one sweat that drips off the brow of Tharoor that isn’t filled with hypocrisy. I have called him the “Happy-tongue Hypocrite”.
Slammed by everyone around him, Tharoor finally explains that his remarks were because Narendra Modi blamed UPA for the killing of Sarabjit. All that Modi said was that it was an extra-judicial killing because prisoners sentenced to death are kept in isolation and not with other inmates. And why shouldn’t the UPA be blamed? What exactly is the UPA responsible for in this nation if its foot soldiers are going to blame the NDA or BJP for all its crimes? I would sort of agree. The UPA is the most irresponsible govt we ever had. Fact remains, despite all their so-called education Tharoor and Rajdeep are in reality a Laloo in English. That’s the only difference. Their moronery is now well established and beyond compare and instead of facing up to the truth these cowards peddle BS all the time. Naturally, I am tempted to call them the cowards of our country.
