Hello World!

***

The Israeli film jury head suddenly u-turned. Had written abt it, but can’t find the tweet now. The point is India, is an Importing country, with Billions of customers, that status will be maintained, using all necessary pressure for that.

Biden praises India! And modi a self declared Charvaka (hedonist). Democracy, Morals, Values, …these are words of yester year. When all gets said and done, We start with ‘Water world,’ of course.

modi has bought SO much of putin’s oil. YET petrol-diesel is extremely expensive in India.

Nuc Energy Clean?

@CNN, @BBC, @spudayakumar It wd b EXTREMELY UNFORTUNATE if #Nuc energy is considered Clean; thence chosen & pursued. …HAVE THEY FOUND SAFER WAYS TO DISPOSE OF NUC WASTES?

Carvak

***

So Okay, this is Not some kind of a car wash!

Carvak (चारवाक) pronounced chaar-vaak, is the first of (Indian) philosophies. Its basic tenet is: Just be Careful of the Fish bone!

Starting from another angle, Google informs Us that a whopping 74% of India are of the lower caste.

The so-called upper castes called the others so because they found that these ‘others’ had No interest in ‘higher things,’ (music included!). [ Note: This is NOT a dissertation on the caste system. ]

Putting it all most simply, it can be said that the l.c. did not Care in things other than eating… etc!

Now does that not Expand the l.c.’s? And it starts getting applied to Much More than India.

I go on now to state that people are moving into the Carvak philosophy.

(Unless you want to say that they have Long lived there).

Let’s take the case of #Taiwanese-Citrus-Farmers.

In India, We would call such people (size of farm, t shirt, able to give interviews to the BBC/CNN in English) Rich.

Only about 7% of these products go to to china, which has now banned them on stupid and cooked-up charges (too much ‘sprays!’, they just found it out!). These farmers (and fishermen), are losing those 7 percents. Musk/Ambani losing some change. For that these will criticize their own government, no doubt ready to accept chinese dominion.

That Exactly is the point. MOST Indians (including Very particularly the employed middle class) do not mind who is at the helm so long as they can eat well, (NO PROBLEM IF THEIR KING EATS RS. 10,000 MEALS)

…buy up ‘Bullet’ motor cycles (status symbols in India), …hang the cost of petrol,

and visit Goa (booze and *** Easily available).

***

Taiwan, the satates, rooshia OR INDIA, good sofas, tv sets, and BIRYANI (a dish of meat in rice, special recipes, of course; sometimes made with veggies, but who wants those? …this for India),

these have become the ‘Needs,’ the VALUES(!), of this age.

To the Garbage with Democracy, Freedom, Justice, Decency, Greatness, பெருந்தன்மை, महानता, and all that rot.

Really Carvak. Beware the fish bones, folks. Bye.

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’s 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 “no”.

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 AmritsarPunjab 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).
