A Picture that has helped me!

People, esp Relatives and Friends, Books, all help.

Here’s a Picture that has helped me. (Nearing 75, a heart patient, very little money, left hand near palsied(?), poor balance, Unsupported by my church, constantly fighting, what not).

Makes much sense. And have found this true. ūüôā

(UPDATED) Gang rapists (who are also Murderers of a 3 yo child), Freed AND Feted

***

( UPDATED PARAGRAPHS BELOW).

This affair, Thank Goodness, is very much in the (Indian, English) news. Learnt that

Our 11 freed heroes had raped, not just this Bilkis Bano, but also her 3 sisters. Had killed the 3 yo child by smashing its skull. Had killed, in total, 14 people in Cold blood that day! Now free!

Of the panel that had recommended the release, 50% were of the bjp or affiliated to the gujrat gorement.

They are CONFIRMED to have done all these things. …the fellow distributing the sweets had touched the feet of at least one, as seen in videos.

The Rapists have All been released, and, as You see, Welcomed back with sweets, as above, AND garlanded.

Absolute confidence. Crossed legs. Open knees.

The full group is here.

They were/are all her neighbours; and had also Killed Bano’s 3 yo child.

Am particularly Angry to note that the fellow in the Orange at extreme right above, is Already sporting some sort of Knife; Hence the cross belt. And see How proud he stand!

The family, and particularly Bilkis Bano, are supposed to feel Safe.

Below, pic of a fellow, who is said to be surrounded by a security detail numbering a mere 1000.

One of those, a minister, who had recommended the release, has this to say:

“They are Brahmins; men of good character!” the fellow had said. …Gangraping and Killing a 3 yo behooves them. Had not known that.

To the Vast Majority of the Majority community who keep Silent over things like this: A Sannyasi’s curse: May Similar things (RAPES) happen to you and your families. …Ok, may the rapists be brahmins. Let the

Hello Again!

Largely pictorial. Let me start with a toon!

ūüôā

In my case, have not written Anything on this my blog for… I can’t rememember how long.

Have been fairly busy on facebook, twitter n a thing called koo, which aspires to be like twitter. …And here are some of my gems(!), which I had shared over all above.

On Gun control (in the US):

and a few more in that vein.

Then quite a few on (against) Abortion. These were very much responding to telecasts over BBC and CNN; (Indians generally don’t care so long as the Awl is not up theirs, and the Indian media is happy to cater to them).

no. 4 is important

and

Right on the Independence Day of India, the 15th of August, facebook saw fit to block poor ole me. …It is Very much in the grips of the right-wing bjp, currently the ruling party of India.

Why was I blocked? No info. But I suspect, my posts. Do You find these wrong?

And then, when Twitter Unblocked me (!) and I found my pope‘s mewlings, though in and by himself he is a Very good man (and a Poor leader, in my opinion), I dished off these to him.

Am trying to work more on my Novel. Wish me luck. With Love to You All, Yesudas.

When Children Aren’t Allowed To Say No

***

First of all, children should learn to ‘take’ a no. I accept that there are nut-case parents who should be in jail. Before all this, WHY are children kept in separate rooms? So their parents can have sex ubditurbed?

Cynthia Bailey-Rug, Christian Author

Narcissistic parents are notorious for not allowing their children to have any boundaries.¬† They have no problem going through their children‚Äôs personal belongings or even breaking or getting rid of things their child uses or loves.¬† Children are allowed no privacy, & some narcissistic parents go as far as removing their bedroom doors.¬† Possibly the worst thing narcissistic parents do is refusing to allow their children to say ‚Äúno‚ÄĚ.

Narcissistic parents are too self centered to realize or even care that by not allowing their children to say no, they are teaching their children some pretty terrible lessons. When children learn that saying no is bad & not allowed, this teaches them that others can treat them however they wish. This opens the door for other wicked people to abuse these children. It also sets these children up for a life of misery because they don’t believe they have the…

Afghan Earthquake

***

Saddened to hear, over the BBC, that No help is arriving.

This, despite a situation like this.

That reduces my belly to a jelly. But no matter.

WHY isn’t even the (Chritian) West involved? …Have noticed, over time, that helping ‘Others’ does not seem to be a priority for Hinduism. …But why not even Arab, and Muslim countries like Indonesia, et al?

As I see it, NOBODY seems to be liking the Taliban‘s policies.

Yet the taliban is belligerent.

Terrorism

***

A much Mis-understood, Mis-used and Maligned word.

It is Terrorism ONLY WHEN People (even things), totally Unconnected with the Military, are Harmed/Killed/Destroyed.

One of the Best examples I can think of is the Jallianwala bagh massacre.

“The¬†Jallianwala Bagh massacre, also known as the¬†Amritsar massacre, took place on 13 April 1919. A large PEACEFUL CROWD had gathered at the¬†Jallianwala Bagh¬†in¬†Amritsar,¬†Punjab¬†to¬†protest¬†against the¬†arrest¬†of pro-Indian independence leaders¬†Dr. Saifuddin Kitchlew¬†and¬†Dr. Satya Pal.¬†In response to the public gathering, the temporary¬†Brigadier generalR.¬†E.¬†H. Dyer¬†surrounded the protesters with his Gurkha¬†British Indian Army¬†unit and Sindh regiment. The Jallianwala Bagh could only be exited on one side, as its other three sides were enclosed by buildings. After blocking the exit with his troops, he ordered them to shoot at the crowd, continuing to fire even as the¬†protestors¬†tried to flee. The troops kept on firing until their¬†ammunition¬†was exhausted.[4]

From: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jallianwala_Bagh_massacre

Above: Peaceful crowd emphasised by me.

That having taken place in Punjab, India, my next example is also cited from there. Between 1960 and 1970, I think. Northwest India had seen terrible wranglings over WATER. I think this later turned into a call for separate statehood by some Sikhs. but this rambling, and quite possibly inaccurate lines are not the point.

The point is that I distinctly remember my hearing reports of some people even gunning down people (mere bus passengers) during those days. There it is. Killing Civilians (people having Nothing to do with the military; politicians being different, as they control the military).

To repeat, Killing Civilians Intentionally is Terrorism.

The purpose of terrorism is to make the authorities give in, change their mind.

Here We see how things can be used for the same intention.

There have been tyrants who have killied, maimed, tortured, millions. Leaving out long histories, We have hitler and mao.

They induced Terror. But TerrorISM is a bit modern concept, and has ‘limited’ applications.

putin, bombing the eastern parts of Ukraine, (even without killing civilians), is carrying out Terrorism.

(Totally destroyed buildings, towns, villages, factories… of what physical use can this be for him?)

Here’s a further, and important point.

The condition in all above three graphics is the result of long-range shelling and missiles, which, coming from afar, would not have pin point accuracy.

For the querelous, putin seems to have either lacking, or run out of ‘cruise’ missiles.

(The above was also possible by bombing, though I do not know whether putin used this method much).

This lack of accuracy on the part of putin’s method of attack is what has unnecessarily destroyed so many buildings, and worse, cost the death of so many civilians, including the mother of these sweet children. These effects would be well known by all military minds; and putin would have known this too.

If these do not make putin a terrorist, what would?

And,

I beg to state,

modi is the friend of a terrorist.

(particularly because modi has not condemned putin’s actions).

The Glorious Free Media in the world’s largest democracy

***

I shall confine myself to the TV media and the Social ones.

The Netizens have a name for the TV channels in general in India, namely, ‘the godi media.’

Take, for instance, the TV channels tearing into the 19 children killed in the US, (heinous as it is);

but nary a word about the rabid dog, (see! found a new name for the mad dog) – to continue, nary a word about the rabid dog killing children in the 100s/1000s (? You choose), – in poor ole Ukraine.

I mean buy your effing oil and coal, but Come out and Say putin bombarding from AFAR, on Civilian areas, is wrong.

THAT is the problem. Under the bjp, India has lost her soul.

Everything, and I mean everything that modi does is a masterstroke for his uneducated supporters.

It could mean the media that is modi’s/bjp’s (this latter being the ruling party in India just now). It could also mean that it is modi’ media, but We dont have enough Freedom to say that.

People just blame the media, saying it receives/accepts money from the bjp.

But there is something worse; much more sinister. The bjp simply and Easily resorts to Violence. And People Know that. And are Afraid.

Facebook AND twitter had said that their officials were getting (physical) threats.

So, all in all, India is a democracy yet, and the media is absolutely free.
