@Ritesh: wholeheartedly agree. Everybody has to pitch in.
1. Isn’t it shocking that with just 2 years to the most important elections of modern India, the level of awareness is abysmal?
2. The people (both rural and urban) have to made aware that they have a seriously good option in the form of NaMo in front of them for the first time in a decade, and voting can make big difference on the ground.
3. 2014 almost comes across as a presidential election. On one hand, you have a ignoramus RG who seeks to extend the dynasty’s reign despite their criminal neglect of rural and urban India, and unprecedented loot of public funds. On the other hand, you have a person who gets things done, and is incorruptible.
4. The congress is a party of, by, and for the dynasty. India is just a use-and-throw means to their self-serving ends. You will always find their brats trot out an emotional punchline “my family gave their life for the country”. This nonsense has to be called out. No, they did not. They did not die as patriots in India’s cause. They were killed to settle personal revenge scores, mafioso style.
HOW ABOUT THIS
1.have you seen the pamphlet for LOSE/GAIN WEIGHT.
2.it is less than adult palm size.
3.just print namo photo one side.
4.small write up on other side.
5.easy to carry and distribute.
6.do not speak about election.
7.say how much development done in gujarat because of this guy.
8.light on the pocket for individuals who want to contribute.
Cricfan, agree with you – but just commenting here won’t solve the entire problem. All of us, who are concerned, need to work together and spread the awareness through the entire spectrum of society. This thinking needs to percolate down, not just remain with us. If we want to be saved from one more tenure of CONgress’s rule – we need to get involved, and make a difference as a person to the society. And sacrifices, it will call for sure. Are you ready?
It’s about time, this is said out loud, open and strong.
1. Narendra Modi is pretty much the ONLY rational choice for India in 2014.
2. why? It’s a question of India’s collective survival. India will absolutely not survive FIVE more years of barbaric congress slave dynasty rule and everybody goes down: Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus (including tribals and Dalits), secular fruitcakes. everybody. Unity is the need of the hour.
3. You dont have to be a non-secular person to vote NaMo. You just have to be rational. You can either listen to congress-sponsored “2002: A secular soap opera” on TV while your real future crashes and burns, or you can listen to your rational voice and vote NaMo in your as well as India’s self-interest.
(Does a public that cant even remember last weeks tragic events even care about fake stories from 9 years ago ?)
4. There are others in the NDA who would love to be PM and could do a decent job too, but frankly, at this point in time, India is in a dire emergency situation that needs a strong commander in chief to lead from the front, a Sardar Patel like action-oriented go-getter to repair a broken India yet again.
5. Those who want this to happen have less than 700 days to get their act together and get this message across. Even if NaMo delivers on 1/10th of what he did in Gujarat, India would have a good chance of surviving the 21st century. History will not forgive those who were in favor of a strong and free India, had a chance to play a historic role at this critical point in time, but did not do so.
I know that the above is common sense to those with a brain, everyone knows China has supported Pakistan for a long time, but India being run by the cabal it is run by whose only goal is to hold to power even if it means taking the country down with them, it is depressing thinking or reading about these issues….
There is an interesting review of Henry’s Kissinger’s book on China and how it relates to India in today’s Wall Street Journal. Kissinger was wrong on many things, but he has a good sense of how the Chinese operate. The Chinese despite everything are able to work as a group. Now all my Indian friends tend to dismiss China (many of their criticisms had to do with such petty things as how Chinese spit (as if Indians do not pee and poo everywhere in the millions without adequate toilets and sanitation, which is worse, spitting or pooing and peeing all over, I asked?), another woman compained of how one can only have one child in China, while she herself does not even have a single one of her own at an advanced age! So the criticisms are usually of an unthinking nature without realizing that China does not even consider India as a threat or in the same league as it these days, it views itself competing with the Western nations….the second part of the article is a bit scary, indeed, China is gradually encircling India, supporting Pakistan who is ready to sell itself to the next highest bidder as financial aid for it to survive from America is now getting difficult, as the USA is beginnig to put pressure on it and it is getting harder for Pakistan to continue to extort money from it with threats. One thing Indians can learn from China is : subtlety, and not talking too much until action gets done, which Indians are highly deficient in. But subtlety makes sense only when a nation has a strategy for existing among other nations, as of today, India has NO strategy and limps along, merely reacting to things. We talk of a sense of history–the lack of the sense of history among Indians is responsible for a lack of strategy you see in India’s foreign affairs….Even at it most corrupt, Kissinger says the Chinese work for their collective good. I recall a Chinese observing corruption in India during a visit, he was shocked. In China there is corruption everywhere too, he said, but people still have to show up some work, contrasting with India, where there is corruption and there is not even the minimum to show to hide it! (OK I am excluding one or two states where corruption has come somewhat under control)…The Chinese are more homogenous as a group making it easier for them to work together, but it is interesting how they generally tend to take a long term view of things, and how different this is from India whose national strategy is just “reacting” to events…I suppose a national strategy can only arise with a strong, national government clear on what exactly India stands for as a nation, working to implement that vision…
THE ROOT OF IT
1.education is discounted in all these discussions.
2.how many do come out confidently out of the education system.
3.not more than ten percent.
4.the rest are all also in the education system.
5.that education which was supposed to make us independent
and critical thinkers does the opposite.
6.how many, question, when they do not understand.
7.spinelessness starts at an early stage in this system.
8.we all come out as some manufactured good with quality
9.and as you progress in the education ,you become more aware
that one faulty you develop is memory.
10.any tough problem , the answer is already in the guide.
11.now come to job scenario ,doesnt it seem familiar,the media
is all there to see.
12. view those BREAKING NEWS of the channels they all look
similar and doesnt it remind you of your schools.
13.all copied and distorted .
14. oh we are so conditioned , i will not be surprised if someone
objects to the above.
15.how many, that have explored new avenues -have we honored
16. that is just in us, trash we generate and consume all in glorious
ignorance or is it plain laziness.
17. as the hindus are bled by those 1000 cuts and so are others
that is one big consolation.
18.the life gets mundane and no wonder we yearn for the change
we are incapable to make.
Didn’t know there is an ‘Internet censorship’ done by/ related with the Congress Party. Some elaboration would be helpful to understand it.
I think there is one more source of the cuts: self-censorship in the Indian print media. This is at least partially owing to the well-known ‘Hindu cowardice’. The term has been used by Mahatma Gandhi too. I have found this trait prevalent in senior media persons. In the sense, they refuse to publish even hard news, perceptive comments and sound analyses critical to Islamic/ Muslim issues or sympathetic to Hindu concerns. What you say of this fear, many a times unnecessary fear, in your own liberal, democratic country? Such fear in intellectuals – not in a Stalinist Russia, or Nazi Germany or Talibani Afghanistan or Saddam’s Iraq – but in present day India! Fear of being called ‘communal’, even though falsely, of not getting promotions or minor demotions, etc.
Such fears/ cowardice prevalent in media and academia have greatly emboldened the inimical forces, thus increasing the pressure on Hindus and thereby increasing the cowardice. This trait, along with the dhimmitude, is being used to the hilt by all anti-Hindu forces, secular Burqas, Sardesasi, Sanghvis, Thapars included.
This cowardice should have been the major issue for any political Hindutva forces to attempt done away with. To be sure it will take just a little concerted, sustained effort. But, unfortunately, the pretenders of Hindutva sometimes themselves exemplified the fear-trait. In this respect the Vajpayee government was a disaster, in so far as it removed any doubts at all that in present day India there is no force to check the brazen anti-Hindu attacks in any field. Only Narendra Modi seemed to withstand the pressure, and in my view, this is a greater reason to feel the need to finish him. Lest he may set a trend of fearlessness!
“From the start i know that this is futile endeavour, ..” – yes, we know how you feel. That is how we feel about our rants when the “secular” government goes to shake the hands of the enemies.
“In your diagram I see all those groups who have actually been at receiving end of the violence perpetrated by a rising hindutva nationalism” – Really!!! I did not know that Pakistani ISI or English Media is at the receiving end of the Hindutva violence. Enlighten us, please!!!
“….Well it is not temple revenues but taxpayer’s money and it is equally diverted towards maintenance of hindu pilgrimage sites as well….” – Give us a justification on how something one offers to God is taxpayer’s money. How the money offered to Hindu temple only can be considered to be taxable? What are the temples or Hindu pilgrimage sites that are maintained by tax payer’s money? Why would a “secular” government invest tax payer money to maintain any religious site?
“I unfortunately can differentiate Hinduism and hindutva nationalism” – Unfortunate indeed!! And hilarious. So why is nationalism so bad? Are you familiar with term “Ummah”? Any comments on how it is good or bad? Do you also “unfortunately” differentiate between “Ummah” and a “minority” religion? How?
“If there’s a danger then it is for the whole country to face it, why only hindus.” – Really? Missionaries are not converting Indians to Europeans, they are trying to convert Hindus to Christians. Not by free will, with money and booze. Try any tribal area, if you want to know.
Finally, “am also a hindu,…” – That is the tragedy. What is your opinion about brain washing thing again?
From the start i know that this is futile endeavour, but i’ll attempt it anyway. First of all I don’t like the way you put it, that “hindus are being bled by a thousand cuts”. I am also a hindu, I don’t feel that way(you are about to call me a brainwashed secularist who doesn’t have an opinion of his own, but sorry, I have). If there’s a danger then it is for the whole country to face it, why only hindus. In your diagram I see all those groups who have actually been at receiving end of the violence perpetrated by a rising hindutva nationalism(I unfortunately can differentiate Hinduism and hindutva nationalism). One particular part of your diagram shows temple revenues being diverted to Haj subsidies. Well it is not temple revenues but taxpayer’s money and it is equally diverted towards maintenance of hindu pilgrimage sites as well.
A similar thing happened before. Try to read here:
This site is frequented by a bunch of whiney losers.
Seriously, stop cribbing constantly about what is actually a pretty robust state of affairs for Hindus in India and do something productive for a change
I think TOI is doing good here by publicizing the Name of book. At least some of the secular people will have curiosity to read this book
Simple goggling brings soft copy on following page
TOI claims it as landmark judgment, how silly. Heading of the article is very misleading, nowadays courts are also getting infested with secular virus.
You should find a way to add the big “red” threat–Maoists–
It is perhaps the worst “immediate” threat. Nepal is already a Maoist haven–. I have always believed Pakistan to have linked the Maoists to the Islamic insurgents,–someone should do research as to where the funding of Maoists comes from–for it must be a large sum coming their way which allows them to be a big threat, just as Arabs from far away support their muslim brethren from afar in Kashmir and try to turn Kashmir into Saudi Arabia. Without foreign money pouring into Kashmir via Pakistan, the area would not be the hell hole it has turned into today. Where are Maoists getting their money from? A question to ponder for everyone.

Someone posted a similar graph about the incestuous relationships between media and politics in India which seemed to hint at a scale-free small-worlds property.
BTW all the criss-crossing links in your graph make it difficult to visualize the byzantine world that you are talking about.
The following classic may be of interest, it has lots of pointers on creating complex displays -
Tufte, Edward R. The Visual Display of Quantitative Information. 2nd ed. Cheshire, Connecticut: Graphics Press, 2001.
Maoists are deprived of their rightful place in this holy mission. Maoists are not just intellectuals and missionaries, they carry gun too, BLOOD without RED is little unfair

Good coverage, I feel ‘Aryan invasion/migration theory’ can be explicitly mentioned in bold red.
This is pretty good and very sad.
A picture is worth a thousand words!
Yes, the problem is quite complex. And this picture needs to be shown to all people who do not have an opinion of their own, which, in short. means most people in India. If the Congress/NGO/MSM nexus is so menacing today, it is because the majority of us do not understand that they are chipping away at the very foundation of our nation, while they would like us to look the other way.
Dear brothers and sisters, please pass on this picture to all who care for the nation, but are in deep slumber.
