The Unintellectual Moron



Intellectual is not a “self-bestowed” title. Real intellectuals don’t even describe themselves as such. It is usually others who recognise their body of work and contribution to society and call them intellectuals. In India, for long, you couldn’t be called an intellectual unless you were a Commie and part of the Nehruvian Tabela of Delhi. You can even lobby to be called an intellectual, just as many lobby for Padma awards. Of course, grovelling will be involved. Then, you will have to become the member of India International Centre (IIC) or frequent it often enough to become part of the gossip circuit. I can tell you this though, I was once invited to IIC for lunch by some folks. I swear, the whole place reeks of intellectuals. As an added bonus, I guarantee you will find the sweetest smelling people on earth at IIC. Even those in kurta-pyjama and beards will smell sweet.

I don’t know the brands but maybe from Revlon to Kaajal you will find all kinds of lipstick, face-powder, mascara and what not. By the way, getting a membership to IIC is not easy. It is tougher than getting into IIMA or Harvard. It is harder than conquering the 36 chambers of Shaolin. I’m not kidding, just read this in BS India, even the Lutyens elite have to stand in Q. So you can imagine the delight of Ramachandra Guha when he finally got a membership at IIC. He must have been thrilled like a little kid and earned a right to be called an intellectual. I think this was around 2013 but that doesn’t matter. I had only known RG as a cricket statistician who also wrote some cricket stuff. But now he had become an intellectual at par with Sagarika Ghose, Robert Vadra, Barkha Dutt, Saba Naqvi and others in the Lutyens circuit.

The first time I read something RG wrote was when he visited Ahmedabad for a day. All that I found was garbage from the first para to the last. RG sees one sign-board in Ahmedabad and goes on a rant against Narendra Modi – calling him delusional, megalomaniac and what not. That’s when I coined the term “Distortian” for him. RG is no historian. He is a prejudiced writer of original, unadulterated bullcrap:

That was six years ago! The only thing that has changed since then is that Modi is triumphed all these fools and become PM and Guha is still desperate to be recognised as an intellectual. Grovelling through Lutyens with friends like Rajdeep, Sagarika and many others, Guha learned a trick. He would go around calling everyone he knew an intellectual with the hope of reciprocity. I’m serious, the number of times RG uses the word “intellectual” in a day would simply stun you. Not a day passes when he can write a sentence or tweet without the word. I can list hundreds of tweets but just sample this:

The tweets may not be clearly legible but that’s not my objective. Just observe the number of times RG mentions “intellectual” in red-underlines. Morning, noon, night, sunrise – RG simply chants “intellectual, intellectual, intellectual, intellectual” as if his bladder is constantly under pressure. Guha calls all of his friends “intellectual”. It’s not even scratching backs anymore – I call you intellectual, you call me intellectual back. Commie Pigs like Guha have abused and trashed Modi for over a dozen years and have still failed to dent his success or popularity. Guha is such a moron that he doesn’t know what he blabbers half the time. Let’s look at some intellectual moronery:

So, in 2011, Modi was delusional and a megalomaniac according to Guha. Now, Modi becomes “CM of action” during his tenure in Gujarat once he is PM. As PM Modi is now in an image makeover mode for self-promotion. I don’t know what more promotion Modi needs when the entire media and country hears his every utterance and speech. The media dissects every syllable he utters. Even international leaders have his attention. As gently as a snake, Guha now shifts to finding new subtle ways of saying Modi as PM is not the action guy he was in Gujarat. But back then Modi was just delusional. Okay? Such is the foolish desperation of Guha, that he attributes the Kashmir problems to the “Gaurakshak” issue:

I wonder if Guha has brains in his head or fruit-salad. This is why the book “Intellectual Morons” had to be written by someone (check the links that follow). In the past, I have identified Amartya Sen as “India’s biggest intellectual moron” and the late Dileep Padgaonkar as “The second biggest”. These IMs buy and sell the dumbest of ideas that ordinary “Drivers, Panwallas & Sabjiwallas” would laugh at. Their only claim to being an “intellectual” is through political connections and a lot of grovelling. Common sense is alien to these pretenders and glorified idiots. So, what does pretender Ram Guha come up with next? Here you go:

So, Modi govt is the most “anti-intellectual”. Now, who could come up with such crap except a Guha? What he means is that unless the same slimy Commie Pigs are appointed to various boards, institutions and positions of influence any govt would be anti-intellectual. Only these Lutyens Crawlers and IIC Lipstick guys can decide who’s an intellectual and who is fit for what post or responsibility. And limitlessly, Guha has also claimed that ModiSarkar has suppressed FoE. These guys rant, rave and abuse Modi almost by the hour and yet whine like a bunch of chickens stuck in a cage. Reality is as far removed for Commies as the Russian language is from the Tamil language. But Guha finally gives in and knows he cannot escape the inevitable. That Modi has not only surpassed various tests but has slaughtered the Sickulars electorally. What do we do? Let’s protect our Commie Prima Donnas! And thusly comes the latest, subtle stupidity by Guha:

Guha throws in the towel and declares “Modi is set to be the 3rd most successful PM after Nehru and Indira”. Clever, eh? So, when you can’t beat Modi anymore, especially after the electoral results in March 2017, Guha protects his darling Nehru as No.1, Indira as No.2 and generously allows Modi a 3rd place in history. Laughable CLOWN! There is just one flaw here – Modi is not history yet. Modi’s legacy cannot be judged or written yet. The cunning Commie that Guha is, he also forgets another thing. Nehru was PM some 17 years straight. Indira was PM some 15 years in two stints. In contrast, Modi hasn’t been PM for three years yet. So this nonsense is only to pre-empt Modi from being recognised as the most daring and successful PM yet. Nehru was the most unimaginative failure as PM and I don’t intend to write more on him. As for Indira, she had her strengths but was a despot and the stain of Emergency disqualifies her from any recognition in a democracy. Indira also justified corruption as a universal phenomenon. Even anti-Congress people recognise as PV Narasimha Rao as a more successful PM than Nehru or Indira.

I wanted to rate Ramachandra Guha as “India’s 3rd biggest intellectual moron”. But I realise that he doesn’t qualify. He’s a mere pen-pusher and a Lutyens Crawler with the intellect that matches that of Sagarika. Modi has yet this term to finish and may get another term. I believe by the time he finishes as PM he might end up being rated as the most daring and successful PM of India so far. Guha and his Commie Pigs cannot defend their darling Nehrus and Indiras anymore. Guha is no intellectual. He’s just low down trickster that the media gladly peddles as “celebrated historian”. To me, Guha is nothing but an unintellectual moron.

    2. Raghav— 'Course you ain't wrong but Tulip is more right: in Kurukshetra the great Partha needed Krishna to tell him not to tolerate intolerance, or NO DharmaYuddha against Adharmee. Recall, for instance, Karna. I'm a proud Modibhakt, but a raashtraBhakt before that. No offence, Raghav bro. And who said heart has no use for head (which Ravinar has in abundance)?

  6. Ravinarji the irony of India and it's so called intellectuals is brought out by you. How much fact distortion takes place here is seen to be believed. Yet we are happy you pen such terms that intellectuals become immortal morons with their true colours. Great writeup and hope the system corrects itself by making intellectual morons redundants along with their idols. Certainly it all looks like paid compaigns to remain relevant as much as the politicians they project in their reflected glory and long shadows of statues crumbling.

  7. Ravi,
    The IIC intro on its website says..
    Quote:
    "In short, the Centre (IIC) stands for a vision that looks at India as a place where it is possible to initiate dialogues in an atmosphere of amity and understanding."
    :Unquote
    Reading your blogs, I seem to be convinced that the Social Media has taken over that space now. It does not require any building, Board of Trustees or an executive organization and also an impossible entry into that club to germinate new ideas and initiate dialogues...not any more...
    I really appreciate the angle you use to throw the spotlight on the events and people to show them in right ernest and perspective... Keep walking...

    1. You are absolutely right. India in the past thousands of years has given to the world many intellectuals more than what the entire world put together gave to this world. But no one - right from our Rishi's, Seers ... to today's "REAL" Intellectuals - will call themselves as intellectuals and they will feel shy to be called by someone an intellectual because as per our tradition - கற்றது கை மண் அளவு - கல்லாதது உலகளவு! - that is - What is learnt so far is "JUST A HANDFUL", but what we have to learn is as huge as the world. That is our tradition. These fools find great pleasure in belittling HINDU tradition which can never be matched by any other religion or commie shit ideology.

  18. Haha..with every blog of yours, English language gets refined for the present times. New phrase: 'Tabela Intellectual' is synonym for pseudo Intellectual. 2) Classic is..."Reality is as far removed for Commies (like Ramchandra Guha) as the Russian language is from the Tamil language..".

  22. True description of IIC. Perhaps it should be "sweet stink" instead of "sweet smell". Just like all the Christian Evangelists who bear a sweet smile on their face but a deep dark malice in their hearts. Another such place is the India Habitat Centre (IHC) nearby. Recently, somebody was whitewashing all Mughal rulers as great promoters of Indian literature and Sanskrit scriptures there. Only later did I come across Audrey Truschke and the larger agenda being set in motion.

  24. Sir, My respects on your writing this excellent piece. Cannot describe the happiness when you called this chap Chuha Guha "Intellectual Moron " . This bootlicker groveller wants desperately to stay relevant and hence his certification of PM Modi. However this Commie pig cannot praise anyone higher than his masters @ Janpath. Further his certificate for Mr. Modi is not worth anything. He can use it to wipe his ass and then his face and smell fruit salad.

  25. Ravinar,
    As a regular reader, would like to point out that this phenomenon of faint praise by the'eminent' historian is a case of'plate change'. The term popularised by Kannada comedy actor Jaggesh refers to turning over a gramophone plate which can have two diametrically opposite songs on either side (sounds much funnier when used in colloquial Kannada). Modi and Co need to be wary and not fall for it. For the Sens, Tharoors, Sid Vs, Azmis and other assorted 'intellectuals' are capable of changing their plates en masse in short order.

  26. Bracketing Modi along with Nehru and his daughter who are the reasons for many miseries we face till today is the biggest sin of this guy guha. He will receive rightful retribution for this one day.

  28. This comment is a bit off the topic. My wife told me two days back that some of my actions were of highly "intellectual" ("budhdhijeevi" in Malayalam) nature. Will it be justified, if I file a defamation case against her?

  29. As usual well written especially " Modi hasn’t been PM for three years yet. So this nonsense is only to pre-empt Modi from being recognised as the most daring and successful PM yet."lines.But without your intention you have glorified RG, whose only qualification may be an expert in filling up matrix of cricket score board sheet manually,of whom the whole word forgot.In a way you cast halo on a journalist who nobody cares..but a sting at intervals keep the venomous creatures at a safe distance

  30. Superb. Whenever I see "Buddhi jeevi" in kannada newspaper,I used to wonder how these people call themselves as buddhi jeevi and as others don't have any buddhi. Now I am so happy to know the reasons. These buddhi jeevis will be only jeevis without any buddhi

  32. In just less than three years of Modi Raj, quite a few self described "Intellectuals" have vanished or almost vanished such as Shobha De. Next few years more will vanish.

  33. Not only these intellectuals. Modi has to face all and sundry like me who sometimes advice him of course for better like GaneshJI and Plastic surgery comment. I hated Romilla Thapar and this RG since my childhood. Communism as told by a Russian communist and then by R K karanjia is like when young you get attracted to the idealism it preaches outwardly but your brain is dead if you don't come out of its influence with a few years.

  34. Outstanding ravinar..as always ...to qualify as an intellectual in India, apart from having an IQ lower than a drunk,mentally retarded monkey one should also be utterly shameless ..There should be no sense of shame .not even an iota..that's important condition for boot licking, commie agenda pushing brokers...India seem to have thousands of them..But the good news is that these pimps are losing the battle the world over..amazing

  35. Good one Ravi.

    Let me make a very small but very important change to your sentence , "Even anti-Congress people recognise as PV Narasimha Rao as a more successful PM than Nehru or Indira", the last 4 words of this sentence should be changed as " more successful and infinitely better for the country than Nehru, Indira, Rajiv and Sonia combined".

  37. Hope this "Ramu the intellectual" reads this to know his worth.Liked your term "Nehruvian Tabela" - Keep coining such terms for your readers -[ What about a "Commie Panjrapole"? ] - In those hay days of Congress rule , every pen pusher who opted to push it for the dynasty was given some sinecure - that made him or her an "Intellectual" - During 35 years of Communist rule in Bengal we had so many of them - Reason why Bengal is in the dumps.These leftist guys only talk and talk and talk and then do nothing.RSS does not boast of such intellectuals but it has produced two prime ministers, one vice president, several chief ministers and hundreds of MLAs and MPs.This it did while becoming largest voluntary organisation in the world and running more than 150,000 service projects in the country.Our ancients said " ब्रह्मो जानाति ब्राह्मण " - only HE is Brahmin who KNOWS Brahma or ultimate truth or Gyana - Rest of us are mere practitioners of different vocations.We don't need so many of those "intellectuals" .

  38. Dear Ravinar,
    Excellent piece as usual, but you cheated us by keeping the suspense on first and 2nd number intellectual morons of India..Lol. I find there is a striking similarity in Kejri gang proclaiming themselves a honest and these commies proclaiming themselves as intellectuals. Both the things are myth actually.

  39. There is another (un)intellectual moron who goes by the name of Sudheendra Kulkarni. A few months ago he wrote a piece in Indian Express expressing his view that India and Pakistan should ask Pope Francis to intervene and mediate in their territorial dispute ! I wrote a response but IE did not publish it.....
