Foreigners Dressed As Indians

(This is a Maxipost in multiple parts for the long weekend. Each part can be read separately.)

Passing a “suck-up” as interview in absence of investigation:

Most people would remember the US economic crash of 2008 more popularly known as the ‘sub-prime’ debacle. Many may also be aware of Sir Allen Stanford, who sponsored a very lucrative T-20 Cricket series between England and West Indies. He was a financial emperor with a Bank and Wealth management firm. You could have guessed that he was also a media magnate of sorts.

I have observed the crookery and criminal nature of Indian media since 1999 but a segment on a TV show that brought out this crookery in the US media most was by Jon Stewart on his programme “The Daily Show”. On March 5, 2009 (IST) JS ran an 8-minute segment called “CNBC financial advice” and showed how CNBC fooled its viewers. Not just that, their reporters were doing ‘suck-up’ interviews of CEOs of the companies that were hiding their failures. I have shared this often on this site as also with many groups. I am reproducing below a 1-minute part of that episode that concerns an interview of Stanford by CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla (CQ) after the economic crash of 2008. The audio in the following may not be very clear so I am providing the relevant parts of it in text (quotes are in blue).

JS: Sir Allen Stanford whose bank and wealth management firm was posting oddly positive results in a down market because… it was a fraudulent Ponzi scheme (Video 1.10 mins):

CQ: You managed to avoid the sub-prime debacle almost entirely, didn’t you?
AS: A 100% we avoided the sub-prime debacle
CQ: What told you it was not a wise move?
AS: Well it’s very simple..
JS: I ran a Ponzi scheme… instead of investing the money ‘I stole it… 8 billion dollars worth of it… I’m bad’.
JS: Come on CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla you’ve got the biggest white collar criminal in history LIVE on the air, don’t let him off the hook... (Here comes the billion dollar question)
CQ: Before I let you go… is it fun being a billionaire?
AS: Yes.. yes I have to say it is fun being a billionaire.
JS: **** you!

Allen Stanford is now serving a 110-year jail sentence. He has been stripped of his Knighthood. And to put it mildly, he is just a “white-collar” criminal. Remember all the sympathy oozing in our media for Rajat Gupta? Remember the sympathy for plagiarist Fareed Zakaria? Most of our senior media celebrities too do such “suck up” interviews and do everything they can to protect crimes of the rich and famous. I am not saying Carl Quintanilla is guilty of any crime but just frivolous journalism. You can see plenty of that in India almost every single day. Our media blossomed when the British were our enemies. Now that the British are long gone, a large majority of Indians are the enemies for some. The job is to hide the truth from them. The British are gone but the New British are here and all you have to do is look carefully.    

The victors’ history peddled by the New British:

A long time back I had a chat with Anand Ranganathan who writes at Newslaundry. It was a chat between two strangers. He is a scientist by profession. I guess this guy dabbles in biotech, cells, molecules and stuff. Very often he spares time to leave the molecules alone to research the “moles” in our MSM. Incidentally, Anand too is from St. Stephens and Cambridge but he’s not British. Recently he wrote an important line “History that is written by the victors is peddled by the vanquished”. The British were once the victors and we drove them out. But it’s the “vanquished British” who still write our history and the discourse in our MSM. Should we do a roll call? Why not!

Prannoy Roy, Rajdeep Sardesai, Vir Sanghvi, Karan Thapar, Barkha Dutt, Sagarika Ghose, S. Varadarajan (Varadabhai). Look up the bio of all these people. All of them are either of the Oxbridge variety or some American university. The last one, Varadabhai, is an American citizen as far as I know. What about Arun Shourie’s ‘Eminent Distortians’? Romila Thapar and Irfan Habib too are the British species. No, I haven’t forgotten Ram Guha. Although he wasn’t bred in Oxbridge or Columbia he has learned the ropes at the London School of Economics. Shekhar Gupta isn’t fully British but he knows how to host the ‘victors’. Some of these people have colluded to distort our history and wipe out the truth in many cases. Some of the media species hold many Indians in contempt but don’t think twice about sucking up to foreigners, white skin or anything that is West. They are Indians but everything about them is like the erstwhile British. Their language, their behaviour, their discourse, their seminars, their Scotch-circuit. Everything! Sagarika Ghose, didn’t realise that Macaulay Putras and Putris applies to her gang and not to any other. The British had as much contempt for Hindu culture, Hindus and Indians in general. Find anything similar now?

The “domestics” of Western interests:

All of these foreigners usually conduct interviews and discussions like Carl Quintanilla. How about a sample? Ever heard of the Global Warming Scam and Rajendra Pachauri? I’m sure you have. This is what happened in January 2010 and I wrote in “Servantile Journalism”:
January 2010, in his interview with Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, Prannoy Roy pays him a compliment: “Your credibility is impeccable…” This particular compliment is all over the internet now given the personality he had interviewed. This is Rajendra Pachauri of the IPCC scandal, .Glaciergate, Climategate, TERI funding based on inaccurate glacier-melting threats, TERI gaining a contract while he was on the board of ONGC, and his own personal wealth under scanner. This is the Pachauri of the “Voodoo Science” insult to an Indian glaciologist. Given all this, Prannoy Roy still believes his credibility is really impeccable. Servantility at its best”!

Supposing Rajendra Pachauri was anti-Congress or anti-Sonia Gandhi, what do you think the course of Roy’s interview would have been? Here’s a guy who was being scrutinised by international media for a scam and Prannoy Roy hands him a certificate: “Your credibility is impeccable”. Is it any different for others who are in politics or in public life and friendly to these foreigners? But if it is Modi, Baba Ramdev, or anyone remotely connected with Hindu culture who’s anti-Congress they will be condemned as pure evil. Let me remind you that Roy’s NDTV is a “fund-collector” for Pachauri’s TERI. NDTV promotes its brand in their projects but there is no information that NDTV donates a single rupee. It’s all GOI money and money collected from people by NDTV. Neat, eh?

The Senior Steno-Typists:

Radia’s Senior Steno-typist Vir Sanghvi still writes for Hindustan Times. The man should have been banished from journalism for his servantility, as should Barkha Dutt, but he is allowed to carry on because he is the “white man” in “brown India”. I don’t have any doubt even the British would have dumped the Sanghvi and Barkha types to the gutters of Fleet Street, which is no more the den of British press. But hey, these Oxbridge types in media are the New British.

In his latest article in HT Vir Sanghvi, the man who called Narendra Modi a mass-murderer, reasons why Modi’s popularity has grown exponentially: “The difference is that times have changed. The economy has tanked. Nobody believes that we will be better off in the years ahead — not as long as this government is in office, anyway”. Well Mr.Sanghvi, times have indeed changed. People not only don’t trust the Congress-UPA but they also don’t trust their foot soldiers like you. People suspect media ‘cooks’ as much as they suspect politicians and political parties. And with good reason too!

Following Sanghvi, and even preceding him, a whole lot of media celebs have called Modi a mass murderer, hero of hatred, communal, a divisive polarising figure. They also call the Gujarat riots Pogrom, Genocide and inflate the deaths each time they write or talk. Why? Because like many other Indians Modi was an ordinary Chaiwalla who rose to power and has no business to be PM, let alone a CM. That he is an OBC disgusts them. Ignorant idiots with “white skin” are far more preferable to knowledgeable, hard-working and performance-oriented Indians. Doesn’t matter if the “Whites” are extremely corrupt too! This is what Anand Ranganathan highlights in his recent post “Inside the fourth estate” on Newslaundry.

The world’s first frequent-flyer:

I can wager that the term “frequent flyer” gained currency more after former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger became famous for his globe-trotting and clocking in amazing sky-miles. Along with Richard Nixon, Kissinger has overseen some of the worst crimes against humanity for which a much respected writer like the late Christopher Hitchens wanted him tried for such crimes (read here). Frankly, there is hardly any writer in the West who can be as bluntly honest as Hitchens was. If the term mass-murderer suited anyone it definitely would fit Henry Kissinger according to Hitchens. It got HK a Nobel Peace Prize. And this guy was no friend of India in his flying days; Nixon and he have called Indians “bastards” and called Indira Gandhi a“witch and a bitch. Ah well, get used to it, there are now those who defend foreigners if our PM is called “Dehati Aurat”. Nothing has changed. But like the 1984 Sikh killing our media can offer the excuse “but, oh back then we had no television to report Kissinger’s crimes”. So what happens when darling Kissinger visits India? Here’s what:

Now you know what I mean by “suck up”. Most media celebrities lined up to suck up to the alleged war criminal who hated Indians. But why wouldn’t they love Kissinger? After all, he’s a foreigner like they are. There’s Sagarika beaming in delight. I wonder how many questions she asked HK. There’s Prannoy Roy glorifying him. And above all, there is Karan Thapar. Now Karan ‘The Tool’ thinks he’s a tough questioner when it comes to those opposed to Congress or to Pakistan but when it comes to Western rogues he becomes a “Puppy”.

The “Tools” of Western interests:

In April 1976 (during the Emergency) KT was probably at Pembroke College in Cambridge, honing his ‘foreign skills’. I guess that’s where he also learned to knot a bow-tie. I cannot be sure where he sent the message from (India or UK) but here is a Wikileaks release that isn’t quite known in the public domain. This is from KT to Henry Kissinger and listed in the category of VIP travel. Now unless there is another KT who sent this I have to assume it’s ‘The Tool’ and none other.

That communication was when Kissinger was still in office and KT was a student. What exactly was the business KT was hoping to transact? It would be nice if he came out with an explanation because during those days Kissinger wasn’t exactly a friend of India. KT is commonly ridiculed as a “Paki agent”. Is there more than we know? The very next year in 1977 when the Janata Party came to power in India, George Fernandes banned American products from Indian markets. What was KT’s reaction then?

In her 10 grand questions to Modi, Sagarika asked a typical-foreigner question. Check question No.7 in the list. She asks “How will a Modi-led BJP reach out to business interests in the US who are complaining about India's protectionism?” Well darling, aren’t you and others in the MSM taking care of US and other Western interests? Secondly, isn’t that what Manmohan Singh and Congress are already doing? More importantly, why should anyone think of reaching out to US business interests rather than put Indian business interests on top? Does the US govt give a damn about India? Would you ever hear any bimbo asking a US Presidential candidate “How will you reach out to Indian business interests?” (On the contrary you may hear them asking about how the Presidential candidate will save jobs going to India). Now that’s how servantile to Western interests our MSM is. They don’t think twice before their slavish conduct. These are foreigners dressed as Indians, to borrow from AK Antony.

I have often referred to our MSM as “the first line of defence for the corrupt”. Jon Stewart demonstrates it at the top of this post. So let me rephrase Stewart and ask our MSM friends in the context of Kissinger:

Desi People: “Come on Prannoy, Shekhar, Sagarika, Karan.. You’ve got one of the greatest war-criminals and India-abuser in history… LIVE on air… Don’t let him off the hook
Indian MSM: “Mr. Kissinger, before we let you go… how does it feel to have been a globe trotter and be a millionaire? How was your stay in India?”
Kissinger: “Yes… Yes, it is great to travel so much and to be a millionaire and I thank Indian media for all the love and affection”.

Happy Vijayadashmi!


  1. The liberalism and socialism taught at Ox-bridge universities has so badly contaminated the DNA of these McCaulayputra and McCaulayputris, that these liberals will voluntarily change over to burka and veils [told by someone on twitter]. Such is the extent of Stockholm syndrome that has afflicted these socialites. The ink that is used to write history is always mixed with the same syndrome [told by someone on twitter].

  2. Baap Bada na bhaiya , na Bada hai Desh.. Sabse Bada rupaiya..

  3. thank you very much, its a relief for me to read the article, its a culmination of similar but scattered conclusions in my mind, thanks again.

  4. “By education I am an Englishman, by views an internationalist, by culture a Muslim,& a Hindu only by accident of birth." - - Nehru. No wonder that the eggs he has laid has raised a crop of libtards, hypocrites and pseudosiculars

    1. and hypocrite Nehru used "Pandit" before his name... LOL!

    2. That bastard was Muslim... Grand Child of "Ghiyazuddin Ghazi"...

  5. Ravinar ji,
    I really admire you and respect you for the one man army you are,
    how can I enlist and what do I do to make a difference ?

    1. Dear Gautam,

      I think we Indians or Bharatiyas only need a lot more empathy for our fellow citizens. That day we shall be the greatest & strongest nation on this planet. When we see the poverty, apathy & injustice around us do we feel the need to take up the cause & fight as if our life depends on it ??? Such person who takes up a cause & fights with all his might becomes a role model & torch bearer like Ravinar & others in our society. Its simple hard work & fighting spirit. No need to enlist anywhere.

  6. Good article man... We have lost the credibility in Indian media and all credit goes to corrupt congress party

  7. superb post - your research, incisiveness and clarity of writing is remarkable. the ability to bring together data and opinions in a post and written in a mildly sarcastic style makes it easy to read and enjoy. best wishes and happy vijayadashami to you too.

    - ravi

  8. Sucking up to gora is always in our culture, even in office when gora comes people work sincerely and everybody is expected to come in dress code, only English langague, strictly no regional language, even food will be served is of gora's choice, it fell like BPO is morden times slavery,ofcourse forgot dancing and aarti ....

  9. Fantastic one Ravinar! My heart is filled with content and joy as you give one of the tightest slap on the face of MSM crooks! The clarity of your thoughts and writing is a blessing for all who want to see the MSM's real face exposed! Happy Vijayadasami and good health to you!

  10. Bhaiyya, might is right. Jiski lathi uski bhainse. Indigenous have not only lost power but lost knowledge of wielding it and therefore get ruled by people who are linked to erst while powers

  11. I think the line should be " no business to be CM, let alone PM". It got mixed up. Please check.

  12. Yet another well written piece.
    Expecting you to write one article on TimesNow, Boria and their studio coverage of Cyclone.

  13. Best wishes to you. And we genuinely believe that it's time people like Karan, Barkha, Rajdeep, Vir Sanghvi or Mrs Rajdeep gets their due from their viewers and the citizens of this country. No probs, if they remain foot soldiers with a badge on. But to hide behind journalism and infiltrate into minds of public with their hidden agenda is crass criminality and hence deserves their restricted movement and behind bars.. Time.

    1. By "getting their dues", I suggest that would be stripping them of their Indian citizenship and dumping them in the sea, in a small boat, at least 100 miles off the coast. Leave them with some "tea and crumpets". As essentially foreign agents, they simply should not be allowed to remain in India to continue poisoning the country. The entire English media should be cleansed in the same manner. Strong action is required.

    2. Aptly put, 100% in agreement with you!

  14. As always, I am in awe by reading your posts. Great learning for me. Thanks.

  15. Dear Ravinar

    It will be unfair on our part to expect these MSMs to be unbiased and impartial when we realise they are Paid media. Isn't appropriate for them to be loyal to their masters who take care of them? I may be wrong in my assumption, however from my experience I see Arnab a different breed out of this corrupt flock.

    1. Just tell him to say a word about Reliance or Sharad Pawar or or a Jindal or Raj Thackaray or about fellow journalists like Vir Sanghvi, Barkha Dutt on Radia affairs? The problem is selective admonition is equally corrupt and he invariably hides behind the chaos he creates during the prime time for his viewers. Amidst chaos, one cannot normally pick his biases, that's it.

    2. I do somewhat agree to your observation but feel that Arnab has recently only changed his stance. A few months earlier, he was like the other lot of news anchors only. Happy that now he applies uniform rationalism for all the political parties.

  16. Dear Ravinar

    You are taking the like minded people by storm with your awakening calls. You are truly the representative of a common man whose disappointment and frustration is being brought out nicely through your posts. We would like to see you in media debates unmasking the hypocrites. After started reading your posts, there is a paradigm shift in the way I consume news nowadays true to Media Crooks's tagline.

  17. These creatures are the RNIs i.e. Resident Non Indians. Like Nehru who once labelled Hindu society as cow dung society, they are contemptuous of their own civilisation and country. All his life, Nehru was desperate to be counted as an Englishman and Mao had even said that the British had foisted Nehru as PM to continue their slavery after 'independence'. Jinnah bluntly refused Mountbatten as the 1st Governor General of free India but Nehru was adamant. Tharoor, Thapar, RG, Omar et al are the new Nehru brigade.

  18. Kissinger walks out of Paxman programme
    'Did you feel a fraud?'

  19. I would have appreciated the article more if you had mentioned how Indira Gandhi gave it back to both Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger. She had her faults but certain things she got right. On the contrary our present PM has completely weakened India's image.

  20. This species of Indians -- Nehru, Sagarika, Tharoor, Karan Thapar, etc. -- is a product of India's colonial experience. These type of people did not exist in India before the Brits. This class has created by colonials and is now supported by colonials through awards, funds and recognition. This is a poisonous and alienated class which has to be pushed to the margins of the society with extreme prejudice and the lever of powers reclaimed by Hindu patriots grounded in native faith, culture and traditions.

  21. I do agree with your views but its not appropriate to blame Indian Media for sucking Goras. We all indians do.Its in our blood after 200 years of slavery.
    Take the IT sector where most of your fans are from, We suck Goras and screw Desis(seen it in US and India).
    Take the business community, arts community etc desis suck Goras and try to settle in foreign land.
    I don't want to elaborate much but the simple rules are:
    Desi sucks Goras
    Desi Screws Desis
    Desi cannot screw Goras
    Goras can screw Desis
    Happy Dussera

  22. are u not afraid of any raids?

  23. Kissinger is still alive and needs to be tried for genocide. I've just finished reading the book "The Blood Telegram" by Gary Bass. It details how the US Consulate in Dacca (now Dhaka) headed by Archer Blood regularly gave regular info in diplomatic cables about genocide in Bangladesh by the Pak army, using US made arms. Kissinger and Nixon deliberately ignored them. Archer Blood was booted out and sent to an insignificant desk job in Washington. Kissinger and his boss Nixon seemed less interested in reining in Yahya Khan and more in continuing the killings in a more discreet manner. (Interestingly, when war finally broke out on 3 Dec 1971, and IAF planes bombed Dacca airport, almost the entire US consulate staff, watching from the rooftop, started cheering).

    Granted that none of the media crooks may have read Bass's book, but the Christopher Hitchens critique of Kissinger is in the public domain since 2001, and all over the internet. And still they gave Kissinger the good old suck-up. If anyone reads the book i've mentioned, that person will probably feel as i do: that Kissinger needs to be locked deep down in a dank dungeon with rats for company. But our media only feeds this B*******'s ego (no, it's not bastard but a more expressive Punjabi cuss).

    1. Reading this I too feel like joining you in this more expressive Punjabi cuss.Crooks all.Their days are nearing an end.

  24. How this systematic Foreigner worship is practiced in Indian Film industries is eye opening. Extras gyrating their hips behind Salman Khan in Big Boss or any modern Hindi film are foreigners, from Ukraine, Russia. In IPL matches, the swinging cheer girls are also from Ukraine, Russia or similar former communist countries. We can not find even extras in our country. Nobody feels awkward about this.

  25. its pretty good how you have brought aabout the media bigwig biases....
    anyways , i have always wondered, why is it you and other right wing commentators automaticallly associate any saffron shrouded person as part of hindu culture? any accusation against these 'godmen' is automatically called attack on hindu figures..... frankly i think many on the net, would do good to not have blind faith on these figures , yes some are greaat souls, but not every tom dick and harry??

    1. Ashwin - as long as such accusations are not done with a sinister view to weaken hoary institutions and as long as there is even-handedness in treating accusations against leaders irrespective of religion, there is no problem. But I am sure even the blind will see a pattern in the type of approach that Congress is adopting to systematically weaken all Hindu institutions. The attacks on Ramdev, Diggy warning Sri Sri, the threat to take over Pejawar Mutt are there for all to see. This singling out of Hindu godmen makes many people believe that there is an insidious agenda. And rightly so.

  26. The dominance of Foreigner dressed as Indian or Non Indian residents is not restricted to media only. They are dominating in every sphere of life in our country, whether it is bureaucracy, policy planning, judiciary, executive class, research and even politics. Who so ever, toe the line (in action, style, accent or even language) followed by so called developed world are hailed by self obsessed middle and elite class of this country. It is not Nehru or others who have toed his line, responsible for the plight of Hindu or Hinduism but self serving Hindus, who do not consider their fellow Hindus even as human, just to establish one fact that they are superior than others. We failed to grasp Geeta, in which Lord Krishna has so clearly established that only Karma and nothing else is supreme and Karma is not restricted to white collar jobs. I do not think, the kind of dicrimination prevailing in our society has been introduced by any other religion or invaders. Unless we start respecting and rewarding every kind of job, which are necessary for the survival of human as a race, no one can help us.

  27. Who wrote this article. I am at peace now. This articles represents the feeling of millions of Indians... Let these anti nationals enjoy their days right now.. one day they will have to come clean on all the wrongs they are committing. Thank you very much for putting this article up. Respect guys!!!

  28. Most of the guys who travel out of India (job/study) suddenly don 'western eyeglasses' after spending few months there. They start seeing everything happening in India through these glasses, be it 'corruption/women discrimination/rapes/racism etc. Well they forget that they are comparing oranges with apples, i.e., a developed country vs a developing one. Once a friend, who traveled to USA on B1 visa for work!, started saying politicians are corrupt to the core in India/roads are better in USA etc etc. I told him its because of people like you who are working on a B1 visa and talking like a saint!.

  29. Ravi,
    Let me invite your attention to another related issue. Recently a book called Blood Telegram, by Garry J Bass, was published. As you know, it deals with the massacre of innocent people, especially Hindus, by the Pakistani Army and Islamic fundamentalists, during the civil war that led to the creation of Bangla Desh. As you might have noticed, it got scarcely a mention in the English Media in India, except for in the Open Magazine, which published a long excerpt. Doesn't that speaks volumes about the Secularists in India? What is more curious is the case of The Hindu. It is the Ace Champion of Secularism in India. Of all the English news papers published in India, The Hindu gives most importance to book reviews. But The Blood Telegram was totally blacked out by The Hindu. Perhaps, their Islamist paymasters would wage a jihad against the owners and editors of The Hindu, if they ever mention about the book!

  30. The Blood Telegram is a must-read for Indians and Bangladeshis. At present it is only available in hard bound at a price which many may find a bit steep. But the author has done pretty good job exposing the sheer villainy of Nixon and Kissinger. They come across as extremely loathsome characters. Just lower down on the loathsomeness scale are George Bush Senior in a supporting role and some other Nixon flunkeys. Believe me, this is History served piping hot.

    I just can't get it, why, or how, did the MSM let Kissinger off without even a peep about the Bangla genocide. Did Kissinger have this as a pre-condition for granting an interview? If yes, then why didn't the MSM just say, thanks, but no thanks, we can't just sit around chatting about the weather when you have so much blood on your hands.

  31. it is shame ful 15 lakhs hindu died in genecide but our socalled sikular dnot have any idea of how it happened and under whose nose,,henry kissanger is murder of mass population with yaiya khan, it is shameful how history is twisted by our communist and sikular,bastard,,it is shameful

  32. This is Rajendra Pachauri of the

    IPCC scandal: I think you are referring to Glaciergate

    Glaciergate: One sentence that should have been based from a peer reviewed journal (as per IPCC guidelines) paper instead was based on an interview by a scientist in a magazine. One sentence in a 3,000 page technical report that was NOT presented to policy makers as summary. Dr. Pachauri did not include it in the report.

    Climategate: It was selected reading of few private emails to create a scandal just before a major climate science event. And how is TERI linked to it?

    TERI funding based on inaccurate glacier-melting threats: You seriously think that TERI got funds for climate research because of that one sentence in IPCC report.

    TERI gaining a contract while he was on the board of ONGC: Please throw more light!

    and his own personal wealth under scanner: Daily Telegraph has apologized for the smearing way back in 2010.

    This is the Pachauri of the “Voodoo Science” insult to an Indian glaciologist : That was an off the cuff remark.

    Let me remind you that Roy’s NDTV is a “fund-collector” for Pachauri’s TERI.: Disclaimer in NDTV website: "The role of NDTV is that of a facilitator between the intending donors and TERI, and NDTV is promoting the TERI initiative on a best efforts basis and in good faith."

    The person "who was being scrutinised by international media for a scam" was invited by Narendra Modi to release Mr. Modi's 'Convenient Action - Gujarat's Response To Challenges of Climate Change' along with Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. I rest my case.
