Tehelka & The Beast From Hell


(This is a Maxipost)

I have maintained over a thousand times: The Indian MSM is the first line of defence for the corrupt. Many TV personalities posing as journalists or panellists still don’t know the IPC and what it entails. Under IPC a crime is a crime against the State and not just an individual or a group. Even in a rape case it is always State Vs XYZ, not Nirbhaya Vs Accused. Of course, the individual is also fully entitled to file a separate case if s/he desires. So on what basis some morons on TV claim Tarun Tejpal is an “internal matter” or the woman has to complain is only something Don Quixote can explain. It doesn’t matter if it happened in a public or private place. Once it comes to their notice and knowledge, the police have to act if they see prima facie cause. And that is that! I am not NDTV but wherever you read the words rape and molestation do prefix “alleged” for the benefit of the beast; umm… the ‘other version’ as it is now being touted. For want of a name I will simply call the victim as “V” in this post.

THE IRONY:

In the opening scene there is an introduction of two. One is the taxi, which moves in like a ‘beast from hell’ and the other is a psycho, a ticking time-bomb. The end is a bloodbath. In the words of legendary movie critic, the late Roger Ebert: "Taxi Driver" shouldn't be taken as a New York film; it's not about a city but about the weathers of a man's soul, and out of all NY he selects just those elements that feed and reinforce his obsessions. The man is Travis Bickle, ex-Marine, veteran of Vietnam, composer of dutiful anniversary notes to his parents, taxi driver, killer… It's populated with women he cannot have…Taxi Driver is a hell, from the opening shot of a cab emerging from stygian clouds of steam to the climactic killing scene in which the camera finally looks straight down”. Shoma Chaudhary (SC) eulogised Taxi Driver in her chat with Robert De Niro (I wonder why he was even there in the first place at THINK2013 because it’s very unlike him). In Desperate Measures-7 I asked if Tehelka can say about itself “It’s clean… it’s real clean, like my conscience”. Let’s watch (Video 5.00 mins):

It’s populated with women who reject him. Ironically, the psycho doesn’t rape any woman. In a vicious shootout he kills the pimps and a mafia wiseguy to save a 12-year old child prostitute (Jodie Foster). Ironically, Tarun Tejpal and Tehelka shot to fame using prostitutes for their stings or entrapments. Ironically, the rape incident reportedly happened in the lift of the Grand Hyatt hotel after escorting Robert De Niro to his room. Ironically, the woman was young enough to be Tejpal’s daughter. He should have been protecting her; instead he treated her like a prostitute and became the beast. TT, SC and Tehelka learned nothing from the movie and the actor they so eulogised at THINK2013.

A SUMMARY OF THE RAPE AT FINK2013:

A fink is a contemptible person. The THINK2013 was held at Goa, November 8 to 10. Understandably, the host team would have reached a few days earlier and the rape appears to have happened first on the night of November 7 and then a second time during the days of the event. Read a blow by blow account at DelhiDurbar. The morons hosting these slimy fests are so-called “Fiberals”. Swapan Dasgupta is quoted as saying on TV that the hosts announced on stage “Go sleep with anyone”. The incident would have been known to SC and her colleagues at Tehelka. Apparently, Shoma didn’t act for a while forcing the V to write a strong note to her. Following this, the gracious TT apologised and decided to “atone” with the 6-month exile from the office. Probably in Swaziland? Scoundrel Shoma’s first response was this was an “internal matter” and she even rapped Indian Express by stating: “I don’t know how this concerns you…I don’t think you can ask me these questions.”

Disturbed and traumatised, V also writes to her close friend on one of the nights of FINK2013. This is a very special friend. Seems this friend works for a Southern Commie newspaper and is posted far far away from Goa or Delhi. Friend doesn’t help or raise an alarm or furore. Instead, this friend continues to joke on Twitter as if nothing happened and life was normal. If rape is usually committed by close friends or relatives, the cover-up is also usually by close friends and relatives. After 13 days the exchanges get in to the public domain and emails by TT and Shoma were posted online. A day of self-righteous mourning followed. Shoma touted how she took action to demand an unconditional apology from TT and for him to step aside. This is the mother of all moronery. Shoma’s own tweet should tell you where she really belongs; IN HELL! Things got out of hand and to another group of journalists Shoma asked “Are you the aggrieved party”? These are the morons who pry into others’ bedrooms and offices and cry for terrorists like Ishrat Jehan. Was Shoma the aggrieved party in any of those?  Worse was to come. Another friend of V also spoke to NDTV over phone on November 20. Listen to the audio (3.45 mins, excuse the disturbances in some places):

HYPOCRITES & THE COVER UP:

If a ‘Broken Window” is not fixed, a bigger crime is just around the corner. If the scumbaginis at NDTV had made a hue and cry of the SunetraC sexual abuse case, it may have prevented this TT and probably other incidents. It’s an incestuous club as many call it. Take a look at this happy gathering.

I have no doubts whatsoever that the TT incident had travelled to all the media celebs immediately after it happened. Barkha, Rajdeep, Sagarika, Ashutosh, Vir Sanghvi, Nidhi ‘Larger’ Razdan etc. would have all known about it. Their response? SILENCE! And some of these are women who pretend to be champions of women’s causes. Some will probably end up in hell as Shoma’s quoted tweet suggests. On November 22 Shoma changed track and claimed there’s the “other version” which hasn’t been put out. Really? So all the “atonement” and “self-exile” was a teen-drama? The other version: “It says that the truth is that out of an attempt to preserve the girl's dignity and on "Shoma's adamantine feminist-principle insistence" that he keep correct form by apologising, he did so. But, he says, the girl's version is a total lie, as the CCTV footage will establish. According to him it was a less than a minute long fleeting, totally consensual encounter in the lift of a two-storey building”.

The U-turns and cover-ups started after the Goa police registered an FIR. It was no more an “internal matter” as Shoma so proudly claimed. It was now a State matter and a State crime, as it should be. So now, a case of molestation and rape is being turned into an “under-a-minute consensual” sex. I wonder if it is 1-minute of both occasions combined or just one. Even Maggi noodles take longer (without any torture or molestation). Here’s more hypocrisy in tweets:

If you read the first tweet of Rajdeep 3 months later you wouldn’t even know what issue he was talking about. Such was the general nature of his lament. He was unwilling to name TT. Ditto Sagarika, whose heart seems to be on TT’s side and not with V. The moronery and hypocrisy of Shoma is there now for everyone to see. She is now behaving as if she is a bigger victim than the traumatised V herself. ‘Shomless’ hypocrites! The biggest hypocrisy comes from none other than a hate-monger and pseudo-atheist. The pathetic Javed “Saab”:

This Javed is the same pathetic moron who wanted a police woman punished severely because she wrote a stinging, sarcastic poem over the Azad Maidan incident where police-women were molested by goons. Write poem –Punish! Rape by a friend – His penitence because of impeccable values is enough. Like I tweeted, it’s not TT’s but Javed “Saab’s” real values that stood thoroughly exposed. Battered by the responses he did withdraw and delete his tweet. Others like scumbags Vinod Mehta and Jaipur Litterfest organiser Sanjoy Roy didn’t spare any efforts to vouch for the great character of TT. Yeah, the same TT whose own daughter had stated he had molested women before too.  


THE RESURRECTION OF TEHELKA: “FOLLOW THE MONEY”:

We have had scores of NGOs, Cottage Industries and media houses funded to create “monsters”. Haven’t we? Remember, for all the screaming about their care for women, their upliftment and blah, blah neither Sonia Gandhi nor Rahul Gandhi had anything to say about the Nirbhaya disaster in December 2012 till very late. The PM woke up after a deep slumber to finish with “Theek Hai”. They don’t have anything to say now when one of their “Doormats” is found to be a rapist. My admirers at Firstpost quote a tweet and an article of mine where I’ve called Tehelka a “Congress Doormat”. I stand by it and still call them that because TT and Tehelka are protected by Sonia Gandhi and the Congress. This is why many believe TT will get away and the case will be drowned. After all, we do have even former SC judges being involved in sexual harassment allegations. That is how badly our democracy has been destroyed.

The Congress will do all it can to extricate TT out this mess duly supported by criminal cronies in the media. The Tehelka story is not just about this rape incident but about how a crony was resurrected and came into extraordinary wealth. That is the story no media house will ever tell you. They won’t tell you because most of them are infested with molesters and rapists. They won’t tell you because most of them are corrupt and many media celebs have built their fortunes through corruption, money laundering and govt doles.

If you have not read “The fearless extortionists” so far I urge you to read it. When I call the media a “mafia” there is a good reason for it. Tehelka is part of that mafia. The smooth talking Shoma who till the other day lectured everyone on morals on NDTV and CNN-IBN has now shown the world what morals she possesses. Tehelka was the first to use prostitutes to entrap people. Amazing, Tehelka came into existence around 2000 and since then their constant and only target has been BJP and Modi. Their harshest criticism of Congress or Sonia Gandhi amounted to tickling a baby’s cheeks with a feather. In his “atonement” email the slimy TT writes: “Tehelka has been born and built, day on day, with my blood, toil, tears and sweat, and that of many others, against near-insurmountable odds”. Travis Bickle who drove the worst scumbags around New York says “Sometimes I have to clean the cum and blood off the back seat”. What exactly were Tehelka’s blood, sweat and toil? Here’s the answer:

One of the first things that the Congress did after they came to power in 2004 was Sonia Gandhi extricating Tehelka from all cases against them. She wrote to the PM and his response with “Respected, Srimati, Gandhiji  is shown above. It was just about a month since Congress came to power; such was the hurry to reward the doormat. Every crony media house that has been a doormat of the Congress has been helped beyond limits by the party. I am not bothered that any cases against Tehelka were withdrawn because govts are known to subdue media houses with frivolous court cases. The question is how did Tehelka get so wealthy? Who owns them? Who funds them? How does such a trash-can rag which sells no more than 5786 pieces of an edition according to my estimate make so much money? An ET article which woke up after this rape incident tries to trace the funding of Tehelka but to no avail and not much success. The article says they have accumulated losses of over 26 crores and I estimate maybe even more. It’s a very frightening maze. “Follow the money” said Deep Throat and that will explain the corrupt media mafia.

Since the Congress came to power media houses have been lavished with doles from PSUs and many disproportionate advertisements. You have to read how HT Summit educates you on leadership with your own money. Tehelka and TT have acquired real estate and even arm-twisted the former Goa CM to fund their THINK, KINK and FINK events. That’s the blood and toil of TT. Imagine, the Congress being the Congotri of corruption and scams, not one single media house, not even Tehelka, has managed to pull one sting on it. The only one to be trapped was Pawan Bansal owing to a vengeful CBI director.

We have the power” they sort of tell everyone. “We can screw you” they seem to imply. A journalist who has learnt to swim with these sharks, Swapan Dasgupta, observes (last line on the page): “Of course I am ignoring the gush-gushness of the TV groups who were beneficiaries of a Rs 400-crore bailout package by the Financial Institutions last week”. That was just a few days before the May 2009 elections. We are approaching another season of elections. You think Tehelka and TT won’t be bailed out? Do you feel lucky? After all, this pathetic rag claims to pay you for speaking the truth. They pay women to rape them too?
 
THE BEAST FROM HELL:

As he sees the decay and filth on the streets and around him while driving the beast all night, Travis Bickle makes a mental note of it:

All the animals come out at night - whores, skunk pussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies. SICK, VENAL! Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets.

I have used that dialogue often to describe nightly fake debates on TV. Most media house parties, media events are an invitation to some form of sexual harassment or a small orgy in some small corner. Let me say, though, that there are honourable exceptions too. But even on TV most editors have admitted that these beasts from hell are in their offices and in all their events. And these beasts are a protected species.

  9. This Tejpal is turning out to be a much uglier monster than it appeared a few days back. I had earlier speculated that he might be in the habit of trying his luck on every new young female entrant to Tehelka ... which is now confirmed by none other than his own daughter. (His daughter reportedly replied to the latest victim when she reported Tejpal's rape attempt - "Yeah, when I was 13 yr old, I have seen him trying to put his hands under the panties of a woman and lick her face and I am not surprised")

    And now it is beyond doubt that Shoma has always been an arranger for all such 'consensual liaisons' ... the fact that Tejpal has used this word indicates that "liaison" was their code word for these adventures ... which of course were no adventure but outright rapes.

    A few days back Aurn Jaitley said that a serial rapist was loose in Goa implying this Tejpal guy. I dismissed it as just another opposition hyperbole, though I am aware that Jaitley rarely says anything undefendable ... turns out Jaitley knew what he was talking about ... I feel since BJP has a lot of axe to grind with Tehelka, they had done their research very well on each and every move of Tejpal and Tehelka ... and were just waiting for a chance. The hubristic Tejpal did them a great favour by his latest rape.

    It also turns out that Tejpal is a very close nephew of Kapil Sibal. Tejpal's mom and Sibal are real siblings. Even in the past, Tejpal has been rescued several times by Congress's interference.

    At this point it difficlut to really pin down the ownership of Tehelka but it is very very likely that the troika of Sibal+Manish+Jairam will not be far behind in this web of ownership ... and that really explains their utter silence in this issue as well as that of a lot of voluble editors of several media outlets. In all probability they are thinking about saving Tejpal as well as to obfuscate the ownership even more so that no one traces their names. Besides, Tejpal probably is too much in possession of some incendiary material about his maternal uncle Sibal ... the threat of police enquiry in a BJP ruled state scares them no end. That is why minister of state RPN singh is now exploring options to takeover this case from Goa police.


    There is far FAR more to this case than meets the eye ...

    Tejpal is not any ordinary rapist ... in all probability he also 'arranged' for such sexual escapades for his mentors in Congress party. too many freshly recruited young female reporters employed by Tehelka probably ended up in beds of all these people involved ... including several editors and mentors in Congress ... That is the only possible explanation for the deep hush in Congress. In fact the silence in Congress is so deep that they are not even commenting anything about any issue ... The NCW chairperson who till yesterday was burning TV screens has vanished. No one is saying anything ... it only indicates a war footing effort of cover up and saving their own skin ... at this point they will not even think about political rivals and elections .. now is the time to avoid a jail term ... they all fear being branded a rapist.

    And now I urge you to watch the interview of Shoma with Rajdeep once again ... it is very very clear that she is trying to save the skin of someone far more powerful than Tejpal. After this knowledge, you will not be able to see anything else in her effort ... and the deep scare that Rajdeep has on his face also betrays his emotions. Draw your own conclusions.

  11. Many in the media and outside knew about the dubious character of Tejpal & how Tehelka survives but since the dynasty was & is backing them they were left untouched. Now a brave young girl has opened the can of worms unexpectedly and the dynasty faithful's are running helter skelter. The way the Nehru Dynasty TV functions is no different from Tehelka and since they are the voice of the dynasty everything is brushed under the carpet. Waiting for the day when someone will be brave enough and strong enough to lift the carpet and expose what's been hidden underneath for so long. Like Tehelka this organisation also has huge accumulated losses and has not reported a profit since its inception and yet they survive and spend lavishly, none of us can question their finances that's how it is. The media more than 90% of which survives on the dynasty doles is pretty scarred rather s*it scarred about the prospect of Modi becoming the PM rather than the BJP coming to power. They can manage the BJP like they did upto 2004 but this Modi is turning out to be their worst nightmare. Media houses know that If he becomes the PM many of them will have to shut shop and the luxurious life they are enjoying at the tax payers expense will vanish, for them that's the scariest thing that could happen. That's why we keep seeing day in and day out the fabricated stings or digging out some old mundane files on him and try to stop him in his tracks. So for they have failed but till May-2014 Modi will have to survive many an attempts not only from the dynasty but from the dynasty backers. Only one of them is down now fighting for its own survival the rest will keep trying till the judgement day.

It was the same place where the NIA has found out the hand of Khangress insiders in the Maoist massacre of Karma and other congis!! Namo is and was not a fool to make such remarks elsewhere at all.

  12. its true that in Delhi, and for congress Modi is the biggest challenge. Congress is trying its best to avoid him entry to delhi.

    One of the major arm as you said ravi is the dirty tricks department, or gestapo arm of Congress which Tehelka was a major pillar.


    Ironically these pillar are falling automatically. I think the fate is with shri modi even when all odds are against him.

  15. I am happy that this beach got exposed. I really hated her emotion-cum-hate spewing rhetoric on Gujarat and violence related to women. Even a cursory reading of her much diatribes could be found for serious lack of facts and comprehension.

    Not just that, she seemed to be in the total know of how the Tehelka is funded, corporate way where congress helps in permits and licenses for a corporate group where in quid-pro-quo they help fund the Tehelka.

    Her selective outrage which is spewed in articles is sold to the highest bidder especially the congress ones. In any case, her position on the left of centre is helpful with rhetoric and blind emotions unlike with more analyzing position taken by the centre right.

    Her case on the ishrat jahan was even amusing, she went about (with Rana, the other journalist) day after day invoking minute details about the life of ishrat which is ofcourse not connected with terror in any way. She would speak of her dreams, ideas (like talking about the dreams and ideas of osama'ji'). she then would let Rana interview their parents and flaunt as though it is the real truth. No mention of the Headley's confession or IB alerts. Only outrage of the death, what is funny is she didn't even speak about her terror collegues. Most of the readers would be bewitched to believe Gujarat is the only state with encounters(which other states have even more and Gujarat among few).
    Again, the beach deserved what she propounded for others and I can only glee to see her suffer.
    PS:Forgive my transgression for calling them bitches, but when Ravinar told me how these people are the most dangerous, I never believed. Now it seems the intensity has dawned on me.

  19. Hay Ravinder you are good. My question is if this incident had happened in Congress rule state Do you think it would have blown out like this OR would have tried to hide under carpet?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Dear Ravinar,
    This is a devastating piece on so many levels. But what it devastates most is the final hope we humans cling to - that come what may, someone will stand by us, and that someone would be the person who we love and trust more than our life. People don't mind betrayal by strangers or acquaintances. What devastates is the betrayal by the loved ones. When you say: "If rape is usually committed by close friends or relatives, the cover-up is also usually by close friends and relatives," is painful in the extreme to hear. But it is also true. And that is why, I feel, that "V" is the bravest of the brave, for she has not only withstood a brutal assault, she has also withstood betrayal.
    Thank you for this article.

    I would like to add on observation. Sagarika Ghosh tweet "Powerful Men vs
    Powerless young women" she has put in her comment #Tehelka to #saheb. #Tehelka tag is for misdeed of her own Media biradari (बिरादरी) while #Saheb is alleged by the same criminal mafia biradari on NaMo who is in politics and has earned high respect among masses through his hard work.

  26. Politics apart,every rape(new nomenclature is 'incident") every molestation by the ordinary or the high and mighty proves over and over again that man is an insignificant slave of nature.The ugly head of natural urge rises again and again reminding man that he is just another animal.Today it is TT, tommorrow it can be anyone, i mean "anyone".So let us get real and play safe.

    1. It is not Snoopgate, but Stoopgate - an indicator to the lowest levels that the Congress party and the decidedly evil first family will stoop to in a bid to stay in power. Why is the Congress and more importantly, the first family, so scared? Because the vile family knows that in the annals of Indian history the darkest chapters will read as "Nehru & Fake Gandhi Dynasty 1947-2014".

    2. @alok, it became fashion to pose as impartial..But often the impartiality only comes out when the crooks are caught red handed. Tehelka and co `destroyed' many people by so called `unearthing scandals' just to save their master i.e., congress. It seems you are also doing the same. Here we are talking about the crime committed by a person with `impeccable values'(as per Javed Akhtar). So stick to the issue. More over, Gujarat Govt constituted a two member committee to inquire the issue.
