One of the tricks that commies like Yogendra Yadav, Suzy Roy and Ram Guha use is to hammer in new phrases like “Idea of India” that have little truth and even lesser relevance to discussions. Their idea is that India didn’t exist historically but was cobbled together by the British or by political leaders after Independence. Many years ago an applicant wrote a hilarious essay in an IAS exam on the “Indian cow”. Fortunately, he stopped short of saying India is a cow. Unfortunately, he also passed the exam. Fortunately, we do have a wizard who also finds India is a beehive, a computer, a river, and a bouquet and you never know what he might turn India into next. Unfortunately, there are media morons who recognise this as Rahul Gandhi’s “vision for India”. Frankly, in that essay only one cow was tortured. With this wizard an entire country is likely to be tortured.
Someone sidekicks must have realised that RG simply doesn’t have the knowledge to talk sense so it is best he talks silly stuff and emotional stuff. It’s somewhat like Amitabh Bachchan in Deewar who has never been to a temple and when he finally goes there he doesn’t know how to pray except lash out. So lately the RG story is more about “my mummy, my daddy, my grandmother, my grandfather, my great-grandfather” and even mosquitoes. Err… correction; the grandfather never appears in the story. This is then laced with great anger against everyone and everything and how you can’t eat roads and airports. How else do you explain this absolute moronery that RG delivers repeatedly and unfailingly?
Even by his stupid logic, if airports cannot feed people at least they get used. What are the chances an Agni missile will be used in the next 10 years? Why make them? The media then discusses this man not for the joke he is but whether he will be the next PM when every editor in every TV channel and newspaper should be declaring him a confirmed disaster. But what do the media end up discussing? Whether RG has changed the agenda to “Secular Vs Communal”! You can’t eat airports and roads, but for the Congress it seems the poor can surely eat secularism. That is the typical Commie trickery. In the absence of any real performance or plan that the Commies can offer turn the discussion in to mindless nonsense and the media will drum up the fears of communal violence where there isn’t any. There are slavish idiots like Kumar Ketkar who actually felt RG’s “mosquito and ISI contacting Muslims in Muzzafarnagar” was a diplomatic statement (on CNN-IBN). No wonder even Sagarika Ghose is getting awards.
The question that even observant writers ask is how is it that the Commies who numbered about 60 odd in the previous parliament and about 40 odd in the current parliament dictate the national agenda so much with empty rhetoric. This is because they refuse to recognise the Congress as the biggest Communist party in India. Is it any surprise that CPM, CPI and other Commies always support them? It is not stooges of CPM who have infested institutions like JNU and many other govt funded bodies. It is the Congress that has been infesting them with commies. And like a mafia-wife the media carries out their agenda through propaganda and fear-mongering. Muslims are good, Christians are good, Buddhists are good, Hindus are communal villains. How did this commie nonsense start? Here is something from history that should tell us how:
That sounds like a passionate speech, doesn’t it? Well, that is a part of the great-grandfather’s or Jawaharlal Nehru’s speech to the INC in 1936. Strangely, the author who is paying a tribute to Nehru has “cleansed” the speech. In other words, he has used the Commie technique of “Shuddho” in the specific part that he uses. Now here’s the para that Nehru actually used:
The full para on socialism is, naturally, quoted by the Marxist site without any “Shuddho” since it promotes their ideology. The portion underlined in blue is a very historically significant statement by Nehru. In comparison to RG, Nehru was definitely more educated and possessed better thinking skills but even back then Nehru just glossed over the mass killings in Russia with a mere “disagree with” and then says “I am convinced that, if some world catastrophe does not intervene this new civilisation will spread to other lands”. Well, catastrophe did fall upon the USSR and it now doesn’t exist. What was experienced was mass killings, extra-ordinary poverty, political unrest and even long queues for bread. That then is the foundation of the Commie ideology of the Congress which is fashionably practiced as “socialism”.
In the 55 odd years that the Congress has ruled India that flawed vision of Nehru and the continuing practices have neither resulted in “Garibi Hatao” nor education for all or food for all. Even today, the same “right to everything” is being peddled as major accomplishment rather than performance. That isn’t all; the Commie ideology has created monsters like the Maoists who want to overthrow the State through insurgency and violence. The one thing you will never hear RG or any Commie talk about is how much employment they generated or how much employment their future plans will generate (this includes disguised unemployment through schemes like NREGA). Instead, you will hear bombastic nonsense like in 5 years there will be a lot of development and your children will go to America for a better India. Where’s the account for the last 5? RG even lied that Congress built more roads than the NDA did in 5 years. His own govt has acknowledged that 50% of national roads were built under NDA in the last 30 years. Not one media channel questioned it.
A nation thrives on aspirations. The poor want to get out of their misery. They don’t want endless doles and hand-outs; they want honourable employment and the power to purchase food and their needs. They don’t want free food. China is technically a Communist country but they have undertaken more reforms in the last 3 decades than India has. They are now an economic super-power while India claiming to be a democracy still languishes. Our reserves are down and prices are killing people. The largest foreign holder of US debts is China, estimated at $1.2 Trillion. China holds $3.6 Trillion in foreign reserves. We are still struggling with an anti-reform commie model that has failed everywhere in the world. The Chinese reform story is available in many pages that can be easily found and understood. I recall NDTV screaming about FDI Retail as a “Big Bang reform”. Nothing came of it because the investors don’t trust the economic climate. Even bribery-accused Wal-Mart has backed off.
We are not only burdened with a failed Soviet ideology but the Congress also uses their old techniques to stifle dissent and opponents through dishonest means. The Emergency is a vast story by itself. But even today the misuse of CBI, the IB, the CVC etc. are indicators. The IB seems to be giving private briefings to Dr. Rahul Gandhi. Well, it seems the “Gandhi” name entitles him to anything. Brother in law Robert Vadra has extraordinary security and wealth-accumulation. For all of the problems brought about the Commies there is only one evil to blame; Hindus and Hindutva. These Hindutva forces are enemies of the nation, you see. The Commies will say it and the media folks like Arnab Goswami and Rajdeep Sardesai will rake up nonsense about the “Communal” threats. They will talk about 2002 when the worst communal riots in our history have been under the Commies (and I include Congress in Commies). The media simply won’t even touch upon 55000 people killed in Bengal under CPM (mentioned in a previous part).
In the run up to elections in five States, there will be more such anti-Hindu poison by both the Commies and the MSM. Cleverly, the MSM now uses Arvind Kejriwal’s party in debates as an “arbiter”. His party doesn’t run any govt so has nothing to its credit and no failures but he and his Commie gang can freely accuse every party of crimes. Take a look at this:
Kejriwal & gang put out that grand statement on Muzzafarnagar without the slightest evidence. When caught lying they silently deleted the page. The hunt will continue. It is not just Narendra Modi or Amit Shah. Where required, officers like PC Parakh will always be hunted as is being done in Coalgate. Ashok Khemka is being charge-sheeted because he exposed bad deals of Vadra. Not all the “angry old man” comic speeches of RahulG can change the direction. The Commies have nothing to show for performance. For the ordinary man it is a road to nowhere.
PS: In a major change at The Hindu, the management sacked Varadabhai for unhealthy editorial practices. The management says many “stories” were passed off as “news items”. Varadabhai says it was the same during N. Ram as editor. I see no reason to disagree. I see every reason why it is the same for most media outlets in the MSM.
