Do read TheLitter Mafia & Extraneous Noise (if you haven’t already).
So a bunch of alleged writers have been returning their awards for some reason or the other. It started with Nayantara Sahgal and Shashi Deshpande returning their Sahitya awards. Many have been thankfully following in their footsteps. Apparently, the reason for disenchantment with India is that under Modi Sarkar freedom of speech is supposedly being throttled. We shall see. Other reasons cited are the murders of Kalburgi, Dhabolkar, Govind Pansare and the recent Dadri murder. Most of these murders have happened under non-BJP govts. Yet the ruling parties of the states are seen as safe while Modi is pointed at being the one not controlling the situation. Let’s bury this load of rubbish being mouthed by morons across the Litter Mafia and the media. Most of these inglorious bastards returning their petty awards are Modi-haters and his continued success and their loss of privileged crumbs is what is hurting them. Who in hell is Nayantara? If she wasn’t linked in some way to the Nehru clan nobody would have even known her. Most of these bitchers are nothing but leeches that survive on Lutyens crumbs.
Hundreds of incidents of violence, suppression of speech, wrongful imprisonment have happened under the UPA govt and even before. Nobody bothered to return any award. On the contrary, more criminals have got Padma awards than ever before.
There is no civilian award in India that is given without a good deal of lobbying or bootlicking. How do you think people like Barkha, Rajdeep, Shekhar Gupta or Teesta Setalvad get Padma awards? Their poodle-slavery of Sonia Gandhi earns them that reward. It is the bane of the Communist ideology of Congress that has created the culture of rewards for slaves. There are exceptions but those are becoming rarer. Why would govt be in the business of giving awards? The GOI even has national film awards of all the stupid things. All this started when govts from Nehru down couldn’t even handle state functions properly. Nehru believed the Indian poor and villagers could never be uplifted, so keep giving them some doles while he and his elite Lutyens gang could carry on their little lives of part British, part Stalin concoction of politics.
In the last two decades another crop of these Lutyens type worms have created another domain for themselves – LitterFests. This is meant for the same club members where ordinary writers are not allowed entry. Invitees may include some genuine writers and some criminals, rapists, India-haters and even actual enemies of India. The idea is simply to retain that cocoon while pouring a few drops in the name of India’s culture, history, diversity and all that. For instance, no major publisher in India will accept a writer unless he or she has a reference or knows someone in the media who facilitates publication through “favours”. I have written many times in the past that the publication business in India is no less a mafia than the media itself. As soon as this nonsensical charade of returning fraudulent awards started, someone pulled out an old article from Outlook which talked about this mafia - The Literary Mafia.
“…the fortune and fame of many Indian writers are determined by a well-entrenched literary mafia in Delhi. A society for mutual admiration, it is a close knit group of 'established writers' and writer-bureaucrats who lord over vast networks of patronage…. "Undoubtedly, there is a literary mafia at work," says Hindi writer Krishna Sobti, author of Mitro Marjani. "There is always a silent decision to promote someone or the other. It's a circuit game barred to outsiders. Only a few have access to the India International Centre bar where so many things are decided." Khushwant Singh recalls his decision to quit the Sahitya Akademi's award panel after a writer, whom he had reported for lobbying for her book, not only got the award but even declared her husband would get one the following year. Says Singh: "The kind of lobbying that goes on is shocking”.
That’s just a small excerpt from the article and I recommend you read the full article to understand the nonsense that is Sahitya Akademi and other literary organisations and publishers. Lutyens scroungers like Nayantara are long-time termites that have eaten up such organsations. Their awards are worthless because they carry less money and not much exposure in terms of sales. The Sahitya Akademi is an autonomous organisation funded by GOI but GOI hardly has any interest in such redundant outlets. That is why there is every good reason govt must now completely get out of such fraudulent outfits and also discontinue all political-crap awards like the Padmas and also the nonsense of film awards. This requires courage which is what ModiSarkar lacks currently. India has matured enough for every industry to have its own award and honour systems. Even dumb news channels have awards for politicians. It’s like the dogs giving honours to their masters.
Now, where these nonsensical complaints about FoE are concerned it is dramatically opposite to what these fraudulent writers and some in media have been claiming. 66A is gone – the vicious Act brought in by Congress to protect the Chinese Gandhis from being lampooned. Cartoonists were arrested and one critic of Karti Chidambaram landed in jail overnight. Congress even blocked Twitter handles to suppress criticism. And where Modi is concerned, his haters continue to write more vicious articles than before. The name-calling hasn’t stopped either. All the fraudulent writers watched all the atrocities under Congress and kept their mouth shut. The other phenomenon in media and politics is to blame every silly thing happening anywhere on Modi as if he is a GloboCop who monitors every street in India. In the Dadri incident, not one political party or media house questioned the responsibility of the CM from a party known to run a GoondaRaj in UP.
The other day Sudheen Kulkarni hosted a former Pak minister Kasuri for his book launch. Kulkarni’s face was blackened with paint and rightly so. Such scumbags who believe hosting criminals who waged war against India have to be allowed FoE must be lampooned severely. And what is this stupid obsession of a stupid group of people with Pakistan? Especially after India said no talks till terrorism attended to scumbaginis like Barkha Dutt went on a rant. She even got that stupid Sartaj Aziz for an interview. The bimbo even linked the Dadri incident to India’s UNSC seat as if all those occupying that body are squeaky clean idiots from her Pakistan. She rushes to stupid Rushdie and both iRudaalis whine over ModiSarkar. The Dadri family member was used as tool for another round of her stupid histrionics on TV and she came up with this classic nonsense:
Some people are permanently negatively disposed to the well-being of India and are in passionate love with her enemies who have sworn to destroy India. I wonder any country produces so many traitors. And this too is a matter of FoE for them and nothing more. Some even claim communal violence has gone up since ModiSarkar was formed though they have absolutely no evidence to show for it.
The fraudulent Sahitya writers aren’t acting out of any call of conscience or concern for anything. That Nayantara even mentioned she is returning the award only now because it’s a Hindutva govt at the Centre. This is the dumb logic of these fraudulent Akademists. Their relevance is reducing, they see no hope of more Lutyens crumbs and their little world of elite pimps seems to be crumbling. It is funny to even listen to the people returning the awards on TV. They either parrot each other or have no clue what they are returning the award for, although I am all for returning these fake awards and the cash that went with it. Hope they continue to do so. India has better things to do than worry about these sick individuals who don’t really live in India. Finally, all these scumbags get into some orchestrated hysteria when an election looms. These sickos will lose Bihar and again go into hibernation for some months.
