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.
In my previous post today, a Young man had shared how they had tried to prevent the advent of putin, but had failed.
In another of my previous posts, in Facebook, I think, I had written that one cannot speak against certain regimes; that India is Still free, and that people should speak out while they still can.
Take the case of North korea:
They, (including the children), are supposed to be mourning the past dictator. …The internet also provides further interesting pictures.
Practically Everyone knows how putin is handling who are even calling this conflict ‘War.’
xi has entered Indian territory, which the Indian gorement denies with convoluted arguments.
China gobbling up Tibet, Hongkong, Taipei and above all the Tiananmen square incident are History. The level of freedom xi and co provide must be apparent from these.
What about India?
modi is surrounded by a security detail of One Thousand, it is said. he is that brave.
2. his supporters are Super brainless. The Axiom, No amount of Proof will convince an I**** was made for them. they will believe Whatever he says, and All he does is good for them.
Not only is modi a Liar (Nobody asked him to make all those promises!), he has Blood on his hands. For these people, a simple statement to the Idiot police, – Idiots because they serve politicians rather than the Country, – viz: “Let the people (meaning, a particular group) have their way,” is All that it takes.
Nobody can deny that things are getting better, All around the world, in spite of frightening presentations, especially wrt #Ecology, as excellently presented by #BBCEarth, etc.
What is happening is this:
College aged people are Running after ‘love;’
And Colleges are busy dishing out ways to ‘earn’ and to Get better jobs.
#Journalists too, hiding behind Trained Smiles and Brash voices, forever Self proclaiming to be presenting Truth, are Merely Securing their #Salaries.
MOST people seem to have Forgotten things like Being Humane, Decency, Values, Morality, JUSTICE, Freedom, Democracy, etc.
Hence Needed: All-round development.
To give the idea, I liked this picture.
IN THIS, I BELIEVE #MEDIA CAN DO WONDERS.
Below: The graphic says: A people who do not Lift up their voice Against evil, Will Lift the Biers of its loved ones.
My Dear #media, MAKE Yourselves into the IVth Column again!
Don’t tell me you already ‘are’ that. What you are today is like the columns of #Delphi, good only for ‘Time-pass,’ that favourite of India.
In the book ‘#REMO, Unarmed n Dangerous,’ by Warren-Murphy, We have the #Diamondtoothed villain, introduced as Shooting a journalist (ends unpleasant reportings, see?).
Thus conceded, Journalism is Dangerous. Dammit, ANY form of Opening the mouth is dangerous.
#Samriddhi Sakunia, #Sandeep Kothari, #Jagendra Singh, #Narendra Tapolkar, #Govind Pansare, #MM Kalburgi, #Gauri Lankesh and More… All who Opened their mouths and got Killed for their pains, are all True #MARTYRS.
…A fellow had headed groups killing Muslims, speaks of it in a ‘sting’ operation. A link to that video is given below, followed by part of what he admitted:
The Indian #JUDICIARY is Ganpatrai (Gand phat raha hai) on #Firecrackers, and #StubbleBurning, #Child Rape, #Lynching, etc.
HOW LONG do you hope to put a (temporary) stop to #constructionwork, #vehiculartraffic, etc, without addressing #stubbleburning and #firecrackers? Till the Next Harvest/Diwali?
Why does not the #supremecourt Order the #uniongorement to Aid the #StubbleProblem, instead of vanity projects like the #Vista and #Delhi’s #SecondAirport?
Would anybody care/dare to inform increase in bronchitis/asthma cases at this time?
Does even #media think, or want to say, that Smoke is Not affecting ‘their’ children n families?
The #supremecourt of India seems to have an awl up its backside, in the form of ‘their’ families being affected. Why else would this august body, which cares zilch about ‘Gang Rapes,’ speak repeatedly about #AirQuality in Delhi?
It is Time to Rethink #JournalisticObjectivity. The Whole Idea behind that was that people would ‘decide’ for themselves. The Problem is that Indians, by and large, are the Most Apathetic of people. Left to them, my Dear #Journos, the honest among you would all be burnt to death, one by one, and the Cowards would be left to Live with that on their #Conscience, a Very Heavy burden, – Google it if you want.
It is Time to Emphasise the idea of #Journalism is to
‘Serve as a Watchdog over those in power, PARTICULARLY THE #JUDICIARY.’
in which I include #judges and #officials.
The #media is not just an estate a column. It is a Cannon, Powerful.
Ok, it is Not going to be easy.
But the #media Speaking Up on Social issues is a Must.
#Journos are Also #FamilyPeople and #Citizens. #Bronchitis, #Asthma, do not spare members of the #judiciary or #journalists.
#Media has to let India Know, by way of Regular Hints, of the Pressure put by the Union gorement on them, and the Failings of the #JUDICIARY.
It is Either Speaking Up and putting the Neck on the block,
Dealing Bronchitis and Asthma in the children, etc, and even Worse, as Time gets by.
The #mundraport, #adani owned, was found with 3000 Kg of #drugs.
We find the nation going Hammer-and-Tongs behind somebody whose name is #Khan, whereas No drugs were found on him, 10 gms found with those who were with him. The modern 1 rupee coin of India weighs 4.85 gms, call it 5. Take 2 of those. …The usual Trucks of India carry 3000 Kgs. So 2 small 1 rupee coins are getting More attention than a Whole Truck-load, bec ‘that’ name is #adani, #modi’s friend.
That is our Indian #media. And the #judiciary is happy receiving its Fat salaries and perks, and worrying about its pensions.
Re y’day’ s TV interview on @ndtv bet @srinivasan n @Kanhaiya.
@srinivasan criticises the #Congress, viz, #NoVision, #NoLeadership n #Fragmented.
For all his seniority, @srinvasan is like a XIIth class boy. He has missed the Forest for the Trees.
@Congress has been Bad.
Congress has also erred in Not meeting #AmrinderSingh, now ex cm of punjab.
@bjp IS Bad, in its very Nature.
@Congress n esplly @Rajiv have Improved; whereas in its 7 yrs, @bjp has only gone from Bad to Worse, n No Sane mind would believe @bjp would give up its #Violent, #Rowdy, #AntiDemocratic mindset.
Hv called @srinivasan a class XII boy bec he chooses to kneel to the #bjp, whatever the reasons. He shames the proud #South. And @ndtv has @RavishKumar, that Gem among #journalists. …Hope @ndtv improves.
If you see the sting video done on Babu Bajrangi from 2002 Gujarat Muslim Genocide, you’ll understand how Modi works. Babu Bajrangi led a mob that killed men, women, children and did not even spare pregnant women. On the sting video he says that he felt like Maharana Pratap as he slit through the stomachs of pregnant women and held unborn fetuses on the tip of his sword. Maybe he was exaggerating but the fact remains that he was convicted in these crimes.
To get him off the hook, Modi kept changing judges in the courts. He assured Babu Bajrangi that he will get him off the hook. Babu Bajrangi speaks about this. The first judge told him that he is now finished. That judge was replaced. Modi kept replacing the judges till he found one who would let Babu Bajrangi off the hook.And that is how Modi operates.
So dear Arnab, now that you have gotten into this mess, give Modi some time. He will find a judge, sooner or later, transfer your case, get the Supreme Court involved in some way or another and then he will get you off the hook. That is a time consuming process. Meanwhile better reconcile to the fact that you are going to spend some good amount of time in the jail. Don’t make a spectacle of yourself. Don’t sully the name of a party that already has seen many Sorryvarkars in its ranks. Don’t cry. You might think that your life is under threat but live with that. Best is to sit in the corner and sulk to yourself.
DG Vanzara and a host of other cops did that for 8 years before they could be got off the hook by a CBI judge who retired the very next day after setting them free. In the meanwhile Vanzara wrote a stinker of a letter that almost got Modi into trouble. Now don’t do that.
Now that you have invited this trouble, give your masters some time. They will get you off the hook but it can’t be blatant. There is a whole state of Maharashtra at stake and you have defaulted on payment to a Marathi Manoos, who committed suicide along with his mother and has named you in the suicide note. Now that note is part of police record. It is not in dispute. Your default is not in dispute. You should have have thought of these consequences when you went hammer and tong against Maharashtra Police and Government. You see, politicians don’t love anybody other than power and themselves. if you thought otherwise then you are the fool.
In India, Corona has highlighted the plight of the ‘Migrants,’who constitute part of the Whopping (about) 93% of the population of India, being the ‘Daily Wage Earners.’
Despite Lip service on the part of the centre, not being paid, or taken care of, by way of place to stay and food, etc, the Migrants have preferred to Walk, for the Most part, distances as great as 1,100 Kms, about 675 Miles, with almost No provisions, carrying Infants in Arms.
The Toll, visible on faces.
Not allowed to go further, camping under a Bridge.
Migrant who died of Starvation, on the road;
Migrant Dead of starvation, upon being brought to hospital too late.
As opposed to all this, instead of helping such poor people, #modi and his gorement have chosen to write off Wilful Defaulter’s loans, to the tune of 68, 607 Crores (roughly 883 x 1,32,788 = 11,52,71,804 Dollars).
And then I read in Wiangga’s post:
‘The Jakarta Post reported on Wednesday, April 29, 2020, that more farmers from villages help cities ensure food supply during the pandemic. The farmer association in Kulon Progo sent pickup trucks full of vegetables and rice to Yogjakarta to help the poor and those who had lost their income during the pandemic.’
“As you know our idiot in charge is apparently currently being “sucked up to” by your yours. We have gotten reports of protests and injuries due to Mr. Modi and his policy that effects Muslim citizenship. Not much is explained but claims of huge crowds greeting the two. Is there a source I can go to on line that might provide more facts and details on the situation both the treatment of Muslims and the great love displayed for Mr. Trump? Any help would be appreciated.”
My belated reply became quite longish. And here it is, for the interested:
My Dear Phil, Thank You Very much for that, and DO, DO forgive me for being so late in getting back to You. (A bundle of very real reasons including poor health, my left hand not typing like of old, etc, contribute to this). …Yes, the two Idi*ts, Yours And mine, have become close to each other, and for many reasons. One is ideological; both being followers of Fascism. The second is the Following that they get in this, from their Brainless supporters. Heady wine stuff.
As for the Anti Muslim agenda, it has been in preparation for at least 60 years, I would say, as I recall my Youth. And Absolutely Needless, as India’s Muslims, though they keep very much (too much) to themselves, and are even a loving and helpful lot. …And the agenda is prepared by the likes of Amit Shah, our home minister, and the think tank of the RSS, an organization that represents India’s Far Right. modi is just a willing instrument in their hands.
The above group knows that it would not receive support from Europe, or Most of the world, for that matter. Hence these two ‘friends’ fawn on each other.
I do not know about the States; but in India, Most of (political) crowds are gathered for the price of a few hundred rupees, in many cases as low as Rs. 150 (2 dollars!), a meal, and oftentimes a small bottle of alcohol. So let us not think that all those people lined up out of love for good ole tRump, though watching celebrities is one of India’s favourite pastimes.
The Anti Muslim agenda is Very real, but Not easily Perceptible. ( Thus the Very Large, numbering in Hundreds of Thousands, – totally Unprecedented in India – of mainly Women gathering at nearly 30 cities in India, being called the Shaheen Bagh protests, after the place where this had originated ).
…The idea might be, must be, to take over Muslim properties, though this is not going to happen in a day.
They would also be Dis-Enfranchising the Muslims, (and later the Christians, who are happily slumbering away).
And end up with a Hindu Rashtra (Nation). But mind You, they do not want to make this So Simple! …After all, we have Many nations that are Hindu, (as a nation, Nepal was one), More as Moslem, as Iran, the Middle East, and in Southeast Asia.
BUT THEY DO NOT HAVE DETENTION (CONCENTRATION) CAMPS, BUILT FOR THE MINORITIES.
India’s central administration brought in two, hasty, ‘mid-night’ acts in the parliament. One is called the CAA, (Citizenship Amendment Act) an innocuous one that says India will give citizenship to refugees from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh. …Do they even need a law to do that? But the fun part is that it will not give said citizenship to …Muslims.
Then We have a thing called the NRC, the National Register of Citizens, which, it is said, will affect NO Indian citizen. …But YOU will have to prove that You are really an ‘Original’ citizen of India. The administration shamelessly concedes that citizenship papers might have been ‘bought,’ aka Bribery. So How do You prove You are an Original citizen? We shall have to show ‘Land Ownership Papers’ dating at least 60-70 years. (India’s biometric Adhar card, the Voter Id, Your Passport, would not be considered valid documents for that!)
And therein lies the crux of the matter.
If a Non-Muslim is lacking the requisite documents: “Sorry for the trouble; You can go.” Muslim: “To the Detention centre You go!”
amit shaw brazenly does double and triple talk, falling back on: ‘It will affect NO Indian citizen.’ But the minions have got the idea, have scented blood, and We have Lynching, Destruction of houses and property,
…All denied by the administration, and taking NO action on culprits; actually they are lauded.
Indian media is a Highly controlled one. Either they would lose their licence, have (false) cases slapped on them, or… I would not put Violent threats against family members beyond the ken of things here.
Thus I Highly doubt You will get a report of this sort anywhere! …And I would Highly doubt that it was love for tRump, (most Indians would not know who he is!) – that brought all those crowds to see him that day. It would have been Money, and Threats.
