Narendra Modi Declares War on The Delhi Sultanate

NM

Among other things, the term “Delhi Sultanate” conjures up images of unbridled power, limitless wealth and influence that extends to the remotest corners of India. The other, related images happen to be that of unbridled cruelty and limitless loot. And so when Narendra Modi spoke on several occasions about the vile nature of the Delhi Sultanate, these images come to mind. Except that today’s Delhi Sultanate, the Sultanate of the Gandhi Dynasty, like the Delhi Sultanate of the yore has ruled India for the most part since 1947 ostensibly in the name of democracy. The rest—unbridled power, limitless loot, choking freedoms, and impoverishing citizens—remain the same.

And now Narendra Modi has declared war on this Sultanate.

No other leader in the history of independent India—however strongly he/she was opposed to the Gandhi dynasty—except Narendra Modi has dared to take on the seemingly all-powerful Dynasty with such aplomb. And no other leader quite managed to pull off what Modi did on 3 March 2012 right in the city of this Dynasty’s power. This is no exaggeration. Consider the Congress party’s reactions to Modi’s speech. The foul abuse by Mani Shankar Aiyar apart, the rest of the Congress luminaries were found fumbling for words.

The writing is clear: the Congress party is alarmed and it is showing. And worse, they seem to have simply no idea how to tackle—much less rein in—Narendra Modi.

It’s actually funny that Mani Shankar Aiyar took offence to Modi equating the Congress with termites. The Congress party’s legacy is indeed the legacy of what termites leave behind when they’re done. India’s GDP has tanked thanks precisely to termite-like schemes like NREGA, Food Security, and Right to Education have exploded in the face of the people they were meant to help. Business houses are leaving, investment has declined, employment figures have dipped, inflation has hit the sky, Government files have stopped moving, bureaucrats are scared to work lest they be implicated in a dynasty-level scam and scams are on the scale of a percentage of the GDP. Narendra Modi didn’t merely call this out but correctly traced its root to the nation-wreckers who adorn the Sonia-conceived extra-Constitutional NAC. He became the first ever mainstream politician to point the arrow precisely where most problems of this nation emanate from. Lesser leaders have made some noises at specific bills floated by the NAC but have largely let it remain unquestioned.

The most outstanding aspect of Modi’s speech was its singular, emphatic demonstration to the entire country that a new leader has arrived. And is here to stay. Equally, this was a resounding slap in the face of those agenda-driven Modi critics who harp that India is not Gujarat. In less than an hour, Modi displayed the kind of leadership that India hasn’t seen in a long time. Never apologetic, never sitting on the fence, straightforward and candid, his speech dripped with the confidence of a leader who not only has the vision but the intent and wherewithal to translate that into reality. He set the terms of the discourse, took all his BJP counterparts along—Manohar Parikkar, Raman Singh, Shivraj Chauhan, et al—and most of all, demonstrated the he alone has the capability to galvanize the party cadre nationwide. This too, is one of the reasons the Congress party, used to setting the terms of the discourse with solid support from a slavish media was found groping in the dark for even a modicum of coherent response. How do you criticize a leader who openly praises his counterpart Chief Ministers, other party leaders, and grassroot workers when the opposite side has been used to decades-long servitude at the feet of one Dynasty?

Herein lies the genius of Narendra Modi in turning what’s perceived as the opponent’s biggest strength into its Achilles heel. He simply tore into what is touted as the Congress party’s biggest strength: the Family as the only glue that binds an otherwise squabbling group of incompetent and venal opportunists who can’t win a single seat on their own. And suddenly what once seemed like the strength of invincibility was reduced to its greatest weakness. In other words, he ripped off the curtain that shielded a crucial fact: that India, since Independence has existed to serve the Family. And the fact that all of Congress party’s election time sloganeering meant just this: a perpetuation of single Family rule.

Modi’s attack on the Congress is also notable for its clinical precision—of presenting cold facts and tracing the money-trail back to the roots of the Congress party. Modi drew the nation’s attention to a well-known fact: the longevity of the Congress party’s rule and the disastrous consequences it has had, and continues to have on India. In the hands of a lesser leader, this speech would have quickly degenerated into a rhetoric based on the tried and failed tripe of secularism and appeasement and vote banks.

And neither was it merely an anti-Congress speech. Modi showed hope and a pragmatic, workable solution going forward. He spoke of participatory governance—that taking one step forward, thinking about Bharat as a whole can we unleash a tremendous amount of energy that in turn can be channelized towards progress and prosperity. The alternative to this has what has brought us to this sorry state of affairs.

Perhaps the most significant, and indeed the key message of Narendra Modi’s speech is his entirely accurate characterization of freeing India from the clutches of the Congress party as a second Freedom Struggle. As I’ve written on numerous occasions, the parallels to the Congress party’s misrule since Independence with that of the British colonial rule are striking. Both regard India as their personal fiefdom. Both labour under the mistaken notion that it is their divine right to rule India for eternity. Both care nothing about the Indian people who they have milked and left impoverished for personal power and aggrandizement. Both clampdown on fundamental freedoms: police brutality is unleashed, websites, blogs, and twitter handles are blocked, and phones are tapped. All, undeniable characteristics of a tyranny. And so Narendra Modi’s call to uproot this tyrannical Government is not merely justified but the vital need of the hour.

Contrast this with the pitiable Chintan Shivir the Congress party held at Jaipur recently. The key takeaways: Rahul Gandhi’s sleeping and waking up habits, phony tearjerker tales of his family’s “sacrifice” for the nation, allocating 100 Crore Rupees for its social media campaign, and indeed the real reason of the Shivir—his elevation to the post of the Congress party’s Vice President. Any announcements of plans, development initiatives, and policies to take the country forward? You must be joking.

As every battle-hardened warrior knows, it pays to wait before launching an offensive. And the person who launches the offensive will most likely win both the battle and the war. That the Congress party is in tatters is further evidenced by two recent events: the first, Narendra Modi’s hugely successful talk at SRCC and now this even more successful BJP National Council speech. Both in Delhi. And on both occasions, the Congress couldn’t quite make out what they were dealing with. The reason: Narendra Modi is no longer the Chief Minister of Gujarat. He has become a National Phenomenon, an idea whose time has come.

    @Niraj,

    I don’t understand this “Modi is better than Mahatma” claim. One can’t be more frivolous. Was Gandhi the CM/PM/Viceroy then?

    Statements and comparisons like this between different leaders (spiritual/political) of different eras at different times won’t do any justice to any point one tries to make.

    This is too silly a line some (not all, though) Modi fans take up. I am afraid it doesn’t add value to Modi.

    Having followed most debates about Modi, I see silly criticisms and frivolous comparisons. It’s also bad taste.

    Modi will continue to be demonized in some circles and praised to heaves in others. People like me wait and watch and pray God for a better India under an administration that delivers without collusive or retail corruption. I admit I follow Madhu Kishwar, a brave fighter,

    After all, Modi was not responsible for the riots though he had to deal with the consequences. Would Rahul Gandhi have done better in his place?
    Let alone Rahul, what did Mahatma Gandhi do when his own Khilafat backfired and resulted in the Moplah Mutiny? He fled from the scene and let the British handle the mess he had created.

    Unlike the Mahatma whose Khilafat Non-Cooperation Movement was the direct cause of the Moplah Rebellion, Modi had nothing to do with the train burning that led to the Gujarat riots, which just landed in his lap.
    Unlike Gandhi who fled from the scene, Modi stood firm and tried to bring things under control.

They were not so quiet when Sonia G had the ban on SIMI lifted (to be reimposed by the Supreme Court) and Rahul told the U.S. Ambassador (in private) that Hindus were a greater threat to security than Lashkar E Taiba or the Indian Mujahiddeen (a story faithfully repeated by his camp followers).

    Narendraji will destroy the cosy relationship (between the politicians and the ‘intellectuals’) that is a feature of politics in all the countries in the world. The manner in which these people indulge in Machiavellian games is quite disgusting, since it destroys the well-being of the nation.

    In any case, what those outside the electoral politics should do is to talk about the issues and the content of Hindutva although this is not fully recognised by us at the conscious level. Once these issues come on the table, and people are forced to take positions on issues then we can put the psecs on the back foot.
    Today, they are branding words like secularism, inclusivism, etc., without defining what they are. They know that if they do define, their hollowness will be exposed.

    The “secularists” in the establishment, media, political parties, educational institutions like Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi University, Jamia Millia Islamia, Aligarh Muslim University, Calcutta University, to mention only a few, Christian missionaries and the Muslim priestly class have created a situation where it has become very difficult for the majority Hindus to live and work as respectable citizens. The moment you say that you are a proud Hindu, you would be dismissed as a “rank communalist” by the “secularists”. The fact of the matter is that many disgusted Hindus have started saying that “it is a crime to be an Indian”.

    Bardhaman Hindus harassed at Gajon
    The condition of Hindus in West Bengal is no better than hell. Under active/passive indulgence of administration, Muslims are torturing them. There is no organization but Hindu Samhati under leadership of Shri Tapan Ghosh who is concerned and fighting for Hindus.

    As if the violence at Nadia and North and South 24 Parganas were not enough, the start of the holy Navratras saw Hindus of Bardhaman district being harassed during the sacred Gajon festival in honour of Shiva Mahadeo.
    The small village of Ketugram in Katwa Sub-division, where Hindus comprise a majority of 80 per cent and Muslims 20 per cent, has a centuries-old tradition of celebrating the last few days of the Bengali calendar year in the worship of the supreme deity Shiva. This overlaps with the auspicious Navratras, the festival of Devi.
    A highlight of the celebrations involves the ritual bath (snan) of five Utsav murtis of Shiva in the Ganga at Uddharanpur, 10 km from Ketugram. The murtis are accompanied by the entire village in a joyous procession, to the beating of traditional drums. At the river, devotees bathe the murtis and immerse themselves in the river, before returning to the village.
    At some stage, a mosque came up en route the traditional route of the procession, and began to pose problems in recent years on account of growing fundamentalism in the region. Last year, the festival was disturbed by some hooligans, and so the administration called a peace meeting between the groups before this years’ ceremony.
    On April 11, the additional district magistrate chaired a meeting between leaders of the two communities, and along with other senior officials and police officers finalized the route of the procession. To accommodate the afternoon namaz, the procession was permitted to begin only after 1.05 pm after namaz concluded.
    The next day, April 12, the procession started after 1.05 pm. But as it passed by the mosque, which is a stone’s throw away from the local police station, brickbats were hurled upon the devotees, without any provocation. As the panicked villagers began to run helter-skelter for safety, they found to their utter chagrin that the police led by senior officials began to rain tear gas shells upon them. This was followed by a lathi-charge. The real culprits who attacked the innocent devotees on the way to the Ganga were not touched.
    The procession thus came under attack from two sides. The people scattered in disarray, and the five murtis of Mahadeo were lost. Soon some miscreants began to loot and ransack nearby Hindus shops, while the police remained silent spectators. One shopkeeper, Madhu Majee, went to the police station to protest, and was brutally attacked by the anti-social elements. Again, the police looked on passively.
    It was only when the looting ended that the police finally imposed Section 144 in the area. The Rapid Action Force was quickly deployed to avert a possible Hindu backlash, though no move was made to protect the Hindu community when it was under attack!
    To add insult to injury, the administration barricaded the village to prevent news of the atrocity from leaking out. Nobody from outside is allowed to enter the village, and nobody inside the village is allowed to leave.
    For the first time in memory, the Hindus could not complete their annual religious ritual.
    Hindu Samhati leaders say that some local policemen and panchayat leaders played a very unhealthy role in the incident. Four Hindus were arrested (Tapan Sengupta, Mithu Dasgupta, Nadu Hajra, Mithun Dey) though the Hindu community was subjected to unprovoked assault. Four Hindus were injured in the incident (Arun Hajra, Kheru Hajra, Madhu and the 65-year-old mother of Naru Modak). Not a single person has been arrested for attacking the procession, till date.
    The stalemate was partially broken by a few families of Ketugram village that had computers and internet connections; they managed to convey the story of their persecution to the Hindu Samhati. Once they got through to Samhati leaders, they went and informed the police that they planned to invite president Tapan Ghosh to the village.
    This prompted the administration and police to try to restore some semblance of normalcy. Accordingly, on April 14, the local MLA from the Trinamool Congress, Sheikh Shahnawaz, district magistrate Omkar Singh Meena, and the addl. SP descended on the village and called the Hindu and Muslim villagers for a meeting at Aikyatan Lodge to seek an amicable solution to the impasse.
    The Hindus demanded suspension of the mischief-making police officer; immediate and unconditional release of all Hindus arrested; permission to complete the interrupted ritual bathing; resumption of the procession to the Ganga along the traditional route with the accompaniment of 100 dhak (drums) including in front of the mosque; and a guarantee that henceforth the procession would continue to use the traditional route every year as well.
    This positive assertion by the Hindu community for its legitimate demands resulted in promises of peace and amity from the other group. To diffuse tensions, the administration agreed to all demands and asked the villagers to fix a date for completion of the snan.
    But once passions cooled, the administration back-pedalled on the early release of the arrested Hindus. It remains to be seen if the procession will be allowed to be completed in its original glory.
    What is the Bloody Jokers Party (BJP) doing? Why no words of protest from them? and why is that NOT mentioned in this article?

    Btw, the hindus should have made another demand.. the removal of mosque along the route..

    Narendra Modi faces assassination threat, tweets Madhu Kishwar

    Well-known journalist Madhu Kishwar has also tweeted that Congress and its NGO pals are instigating Jihadis against Modi. This behaviour of Congress charlatans is nothing new — it has been a rabid enemy of all Indian nationalists and patriots, from Savarkar and Subhash Bose to Shyama Prasad Mukherjee and now Modi. Congress represents monotheistic interests and remains hostile to Hindus. So why do many Hindus vote for it? Are they blind or simply idiots?

    While the distinction between civilians and combatants in drone strikes is an undisputed requirement of international law, it is not so clear who counts as a civilian, or to be more legally precise, a non-combatant. The difficulty lies in distinguishing when a non-combatant civilian crosses the line into direct participation with or membership of an armed group, thereby becoming a potential target. In Pakistan, this distinction is even more difficult given societal and environmental factors such as the proliferation of weapons in tribal areas and mixing between civilian and combatant populations.
    With drones now taking over the skies, it’s only a matter of time before a Big Dog 2.0 arrives. In fact, many analysts are already pointing at the possibility of bi-pedal robots fighting alongside soldiers or replacing them entirely. Science fiction authors have imagined this scenario many times, from Terminator to Metal Gear Solid 4, in which “geckos”—the two-leg Velociraptor-like fighting robots shown in this video—are clearly inspired by Big Dog’s biological design.

    THE MIRACLE HAPPENED IN GOA
    In the 2012 election the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) defeated the Indian National Congress government in Goa, led by Chief Minister Digambar Kamat. The election was won by the BJP-Maharashtrawadi Gomantak alliance which won 24 seats in the 40-seat assembly. The Bharatiya Janata Party won 21 seats, while the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party won 3 seats. Manohar Parrikar, leader of the BJP, was sworn in as Chief Minister of Goa on 9 March 2012.

    According to the 2001 census, out of a total population of 1,343,998 people, 886,551 (65.7%) were Hindus, 359,568 (26.6%) were Christians, 92,210 (6.8%) were Muslims, 970 (0.07%) were Sikhs, 649 (0.05%) were Buddhists, 820 (0.06%) were Jains and 353 (0.026%) belonged to other religious communities.

    THAT MIGHT BE ALSO HAPPEN IN WEST BENGAL

    Only have to find alliance like Maharashtrawadi Gomantak pary
    and a clean image CM candidate like Manohar Parikkar(Chief minister of Goa under BJP rule).TAPAN GHOSH SHOULD INTRODUCE A REGIONAL PARTY NAMELY BENGAL PRIDE ,
    HINDU PRIDE OR INDIA PRIDE PARTY AND SHOULD MAKE ALLIANCE WITH BJP.

    As of 2001, Hinduism is the principal religion at 72.5% of the total population, while Muslims comprise 25.2% of the total population, being the second-largest community as also the largest minority group; Sikhism, Christianity and other religions make up the remainder.
    But now-a-days situation is alarming in some area due to infiltration of Muslim from Bangladesh and high birth rate of Muslim community.
    ALTHOUGH SITUATION OF GOA AND WEST BENGAL ARE QUITE DIFFERENT.

    “The parents, relatives, friends and acquaintances of each member of the Hindu militia, when they once let their lives be influenced by its spirit, would become new men and new women. When they get to think in terms of self-defence and of national defence (feeling the whole of Hindudom as one nation, and their non-Hindu brethren themselves as Hindus who have forgotten that they are Hindus) then their habits would change, without them even troubling to change them; their scale of values would be a different one. And, any social custom that is a hindrance to the organisation and defence of the Hindus, as well as to the acceptance, by them, as one of theirs, of any Indian who wishes to share once more, with them, the only real Indian culture and civilisation, would be rapidly looked upon as an inconvenience, and would die out by itself, as among the young Hindu pioneers.
    Rapidly, we say, . . . if Hindu society can rapidly imbibe a military spirit, considering self-defence as its first necessity.”

    Narendra Modi is the only leader of any party in India at this time who could swing the results all by himself. For the common Indian citizen on the street who is optimistic about his or her country, whether Muslim, Christian or Hindu, Dalit or Brahman, the ideal vision of an India beyond religion, caste and sectarianism is invested in Modi.
    The common man’s bets are on him. Whether the BJP will realise this and capitalise on the common sentiment with the right message and the right coalition partners remains to be seen.

    Nadir Shah made a mountain of the skulls of the Hindus he killed in Delhi alone. Babur raised towers of Hindu skulls at Khanua when he defeated Rana Sanga in 1527 and later he repeated the same horrors after capturing the fort of Chanderi. Akbar ordered a general massacre of 30000 Rajputs after he captured Chithor in 1568. The Bahamani Sultans had an annual agenda of killing a minimum of 100000 Hindus every year. The history of medieval India is full of such instances.

    And against this background, look at the films we have produced so far in a country which boasts of the largest film industry in the world, with no dearth of talent and workmanship! We have films like Mugal-e-Azam, Anarkali, or Taj Mahal which romanticize the Mughal rulers, depicting them as great heroes of noble virtues oozing with kindness and love for the humanity!

    Europe and America produced at least a few thousand films highlighting the human misery caused by Hitler and his army. The films expose the horrors of Nazi regime and reinforce the beliefs and attitude of the present day generation towards the evils of the Nazi dictatorship.

    We hardly come across any positive reference to either Hitler or his army in the present day text books on European History. No one talks there of the qualities of Hitler as a great commander or an inspiring leader of German people whom he could mould and influence with his hypnotic speeches. No films are made showing Hitler as a romantic hero singing songs and his mistress as a heroine shedding copious tears over her lover!

    Thank you for the details. Mamata Banerji is following the policy of the previous Marxist government. One wonders how and why the majority Hindus of West Bengal vote for these people.

    The appeasement policy of Mamata is owing to two factors : her thirst for power and her personal leaning towards the minority. It is pertinent to point out that she took an M.A. in Islamic Studies at the University of Calcutta. Because of her thirst for power she is outdoing the Marxists in her appeasement policies.

    The silent persecution of Hindus in Hindu-majority West Bengal has been carefully hidden from the rest of the state and the country by the Marxist government in saddle for the last twenty-four years (they have just got a fresh lease of life in the 2001 elections). This persecution takes place in the Muslim majority areas contiguous to Bangladesh in the District of Murshidabad, and is at its most virulent in the regions of Hariharpara, Domkal, Raninagar, Sagarpara, Sheikhpara, Beldanga, Naoda, Bhagabangola, and Jalangi – in fact all over the part of the district which lies to the east of the Bhagirathi River, with the exception of Berhampur Town. Just one feature of the insecurity from which the Hindus of this region suffer may be mentioned. Very few – practically none – of the Hindus in the region will keep their daughters or sisters at home after they have turned, say, eleven. They are all sent away to live with relatives or in a hostel, in Berhampur (the district headquarters), or somewhere to the west of the Bhagirathi River, or if their parents can afford it, to Calcutta.

    @nitha
    Hindus have been persecuted by successive governments, both Communist and Mamata Bannerji’s . What has happened to the Hindu population ? Surely it is time they rose up and threw these two demoniac governments out ?

    IN WEST BENGAL : many parts of the State the condition of Hindus is similar to or worse than that of Hindus in Bangladesh.

    The West Bengal Panchayat elections, slated to be held in April or May this year, seem to have unleashed a fresh round of minority appeasement, with the sudden arrest of Hindu rights crusader Tapan Ghosh on March 14. The event appears to be a follow-up of last month’s violence against the Hindu community in South 24 Parganas, in which 200 Hindu homes were destroyed across four villages, the temple burnt, and several shops gutted, after a maulvi was robbed and murdered on the adjacent highway by unknown persons on February 19.
    The attack on innocent Hindus was premeditated as assailants armed with petrol bombs and arms descended in trucks from distant Kolkata suburbs; no arrests have been made till date. Instead, the State managed a complete media blackout of the violence; showered Rs. 3 lakh compensation on the murdered man’s family, and doled out a mere Rs. 10,000/- each for the gutted Hindu homesteads.
    Ghosh, who vigilantly monitors atrocities against Hindus all over the State, brought the violence to the notice of the outside world, but the National Human Rights Commission did take cognizance of the incident.
    As the violence spread, it engulfed Jalaberia, where 16 Hindu labourers were abducted by radical Islamists on February 20, 2013. Ghosh has now been charged in connection with this episode, though he was clearly in Kolkata at the time, putting out the news, and even appeared on a local television channel.

    On the morning of February 19, 2013, an unsuspecting group of 60 Hindu women from Jalaberia took six vans for the Narugopal temple at Tulsighata, but were prevented at Kultali by radicals who attacked the vehicles, harassed the women and tried to kidnap a 25-year-old young man accompanying the women. He was saved due to the pleas of the women who returned to Jalaberia immediately.

    Next morning, February 20, 16 Hindu brick kiln workers were abducted by radicals in Kultali. Irate Hindus blocked the main road in Jalaberia and took two Muslims hostage, to negotiate the release of the labourers.
    Police-Muslim nexus is visibly evident.

    Samhati activists claim that three police stations are particularly harsh and biased towards Bengali Hindus of the area, viz, Joynagar, Raidighi and Diamond Harbour. Hence they had planned to agitate against these police stations.
    Radical Islamists in the State and their sympathisers within the administration are keen to defeat the Samhati’s work; already in many parts of the State the condition of Hindus is similar to or worse than that of Hindus in Bangladesh.

    But the media blackout is admirable.

    Good one, Sandeepji.

    By the way, I listen to that speech by that secular Congress fundamentalist Mr. Iyer and couldn’t help laughing. He calls Modi as a “Killer of Muslims”. Coming from a mouth of a douchebag whose only job is to support and whitewash the crimes of Congress. MS Aiyer still thinks that we all are living in 80′s where censorship by his favorite family was still rife. Other than addressing Pakistani terrorists as “Saheb” and vociforeously supporting Gandhi-Nehru family, Aiyer has nothing to boast about. This fellow had got low credibility and a shame to patriotic TamBrahm community.

My friends we need to propagate this message so loud and so clear to each and every nook & corners of this country. We need a Virat Hindu Nation on the bones and skulls of the fake Sickulars and Looters. No compromise on that. Jai Hindu.

    Superb piece Sandeep. India needs a tough leader, one who can lead us to economic prosperity and at the same time reign in our bureaucracy. NaMo can do both. I expect that a leader of his kind will not go to Pakistan and talk ninnamn asha while those bastards send terrorists across. We need governance and ending congress rule will be the beginning of it

    Another great post, Sandeep

    Can one person lead the party to victory? Does not the Team also have to be good?

    In 2004 BJP thought they were going to win as polls showed they were going to win. They also had meaningless slogans like India Shinning rather than Make India Shine.

    Just have to be a little pessimistic, Sandeep?

    But one thing you have done well which needs to be homed to everyone is what a disaster Congress has been and why a change is needed. They said a change was needed in 2009 but it did not happen.

    How shameful this is! This is open thuggery to say the least. The power these leftist/false-liberal academic lobbies have is immense. We have countless examples in India starting from Mother History Romila Thapar herself, who is described an “Indian Historian”. But wait, did you not need to know Sanskrit or Prakrit to even do a semblance of original research. Apparently not! The leftist humanities academic mafia thrives on regurgitating the same research over and over. The peer review cartels vouch for one of their own and the ‘regurgitation’ gets published as research and forced down children’s throats.

    I see a class struggle at large. These are the people whose grandfathers and great grandfathers were Barristers/Civil Servants/thinkers etc in the Raj days. These were the people who originally made it big on their own. Then came the second generation of “Joe” Nehru and other faux-Indians, and their progeny. Now, they had been to London/New York, to all those exotic/famous/liberal universities, been in the high social circles and made exotic romances. These places were not even within the realm of a common man’s contemplation. They had sipped lattes and been to nightclubs in the 70s and 80s; a time when Chachaji’s economic policies had set gangrene in India’s body.

    These old-world “Nehruvians” (however much I hate that term) and their heirs continue to detest and loathe the “Nouveu Riche”. The nouveu riche happen to be the people who made it big because of the floodgates being opened in the 90s. The fact that these people have real “measurable” skills like Engg, Medicine and MBAs and not vague degrees like “Journalism”, “Creative Writing” or any other excrement. These people are contributing to India’s economy, while the old-world Nehruvians (OWNs) are eating into it. The OWNs with their pathetic skills are desperately trying to tilt the public discourse to the left.

    Anyone worth their salt knows that anyone can do those shows on tv and those pathetic “op-eds” in newspapers. If at all there any special skills/knowledge required (I will contest that), these MSM folks don’s seem to have any. Their only skills worth even putting on a resume are loud voice and English language, of which the latter happens to be their “Only” skills many a times!

    a “rooted”, dyed-on-the-wool dhartiputra like Modi is a threat and an embarrassment to them. It is the naivete and innocence of so many Indians who think channels like NDTV, CNNetc are a good watch.

  43. March 5, 2013 at 1:04 AM

    Sandeep below is a comment i am reproducing written by a fellow indian on a firstpost.

    “It is actually a clear case of “curiosity killed the cat”.

    Starting from 2004, with decline of ABVP due to health reasons, Cong was smug and correct in its calculations that BJP wasn’t going to be a force to reckon with.
    BJP contributed to its own downfall due to confused politics of LKA. There was only one thorn in the flesh of Cong – NaMo.

    In its over-eagerness to kill the legend of NaMo Cong went overboard through the owned media houses. Left to their own devices, common folk of India probably wouldn’t have known about NaMo, if not for consistent vitriolic campaign against him.

    Once the interest was awakened, true answers were sought. These answers were quite visible in the form of development in Gujarat. Once truth was known, it was sympathy for wronged Modi in addition to his development credentials that endeared him to a larger population of India.

    Congress lost at its own game. The curiosity it awakened in the Indian public about Modi, killed its own chances.

    In a way, I am thankful to the paid media for keeping interest in Modi alive. Had it not been for this false propaganda, Modi would’ve probably continued to stay as another CM like Shivraj Singh. Congies, at least learn now: Jhooth boley kauvva katey.”

    The comment details quite succintly the reason for rise of Modi to a leader of national prominence.

    Did secularism meant anti-majority.???
    The irony of it all is that M N Venkatachaliah, retired chief justice in 1994, had told PTI in an interview that secularism cannot mean anti-majority.

    * Then why, the Government of India and state governments share the financial burden of ‘modernisation’ of madrassas and the Aligarh Muslim University is run entirely on government grants.
    * Then why, minority educational institutions can prescribe religious courses and appoint or dismiss a teacher/faculty member according to their whims, but rules and regulations are in force for majority religion educational bodies.
    * Then why, Government subsidises the salaries of imams, naib imams and muezzins of mosques, but not of granthis in gurdwaras and pujaris in temples.
    * Then why, the Supreme Court itself has prescribed the scale of these subsidies, which amounted to over Rs 6,000 million annually, according to a publication of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Nyasa.
    * Then why, nearly Rs 10 million were spent on Jama masjid though this institution of Delhi is not classified as a protected monument by the department of archaeology. But between 1990 and 1996 this ‘secular’ largesse is in contrast to the denial of even a rupee to ancient Hindu temples like Badrinath and Kedarnath.
    * Then why, government-appointed administrators run several Hindu temple trusts while the mosques of Hazratbal and Charar-e-Sharif are free of such control.
    * Then why, V P Singh’s government declared the birthday of the Prophet as a gazetted holiday although no Islamic country gives that privilege to its citizens.

    unless u identify your enemy, how can u win the battle ? NAMO has done that of precisely identifying the enemy to battle. Unfortunately, BJP central leaders never identified the Nehru Dynasty as the enemy to fight. For reasons best known to them they were keeping a safe distance from 10, janpath, as if they r a royal family , constitutional monarchy. Even Vadera’s case, they did not pursue. Only arvind took up forcefully.

    They were attacking the proxy MMS. Poor man. He is not the enemy to be defeated.

    LKA needs to ponder on the direction he took after Sonia took over.

    When 2002 happened, I was still a teenager……brought up on still blinded by the Nehru-Gandhi socialism-secularism worship that filled up my text books and much of the environment I (or any kid in India) grew up in. My dad, on the other hand, was a hardcore Modi supporter from the first moment he saw him on tv, being hated openly by one and all. I did not understand my dad’s support for Modi, and I even hated him then, just as I was expected to by the mainstream media and rest of the opinion makers of the country. Then, I grew up. Understood things were not as I was taught they were. I understood how I was being taken for a ride by an establishment class whose sole objective is to keep the dynasty in power. Then I began to appreciate Narendra Modi, the man hated by the people who rule this country. A man seen with murderous intent by the people who hold all the power in our country. Why do they hate him so ? Why this extreme hatred ? If he is so bad and they are so good, how come we are a poor and desperate country, which has completely failed to fulfil its potential, inspite of the fact that “they” have always been in power ? And how come the little state “he” rules does so much better relative to the rest of India ? Who is really “good” and who is really “bad” ?

    My father is no more today.But he was probably one of the earliest supporter of Modi. I bet he is smiling in heaven today as every single day, the little known backward caste son of a roadside tea shop owner becomes more and more powerful….more the powers that be try to pull him down, higher he rises……He is an unstoppable force. As he himself said in his speech following his latest election win…… he likes nothing better than when people throw stones at him – because he builds a staircase out of those stones, and rises even higher.

    Impeccable from NaMo when he said Indians are honest by nature, that sense of belonging to cultural roots have been often missing among leaders starting Nehru. Pre-Independence leaders like Tilak, Madan Mohan Malviya, MK Gandhi, Patel had good grasp of cultural roots of India.

    Nehru was as Macaulay wanted “Indian in blood and colour, british in outlook, thought, education”. For us to realize our own potential we need a rooted leader like Modi who draws his inspiration from Swami Vivekananda rather than someone who was in awe of Stalin.
