B Raman Calls for a Boycott of the Chindu

Shri N.Ram, the toast of China’s communist clique

Shri N.Ram, the well-known Editor-in-Chief of “The Hindu” of Chennai, has been the toast of China for an article purported to have beenwritten by him refuting the allegations levelled by the Dalai Lama and his supporters regarding the events of March in Lhasa . The Chineseauthorities have been gratified by what they see as his vigorous articulation of the version of the events as put out by them.

2. A report on Shri Ram’s article disseminated by the State-owned Hsinhua news agency of China is annexed. It is learnt that this has beentranslated into the Tibetan and Uighur languages and copies distributed in all the monasteries and educational institutions in theTibetan-inhabited areas of China. It has also been made required reading in the patriotic re-education classess for Tibetans being organisedby the Chinese authorities.In the meanwhile, the Chinese authorities have reduced the duration of the stay of the Olympic Torch in Tibetfrom three to one day. The torch will be in Lhasa on June 21 instead of June 19.

3. The dissemination of Shri Ram’s article is unlikely to have any impact on the Tibetans and Uighurs. Nor will it have much of an impact oninternational opinion on the recent events in Tibet because Shri Ram’s policy of “see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil” with regard toChina is well known right across the world.His popularity in China is confined to the Chinese ruling circles.

4.After writing this article, I showed this to a number of Indian friends. While a majority agreed that this deserved to be written anddisseminated, some asked why do this since it could reflect on the credibility of a great institution of Chennai.

5. After carefully considering their advice, I concluded that this needed to be written in the interest of the Indian people and the lovablepeople of Tibet. It will be moral cowardice to remain silent when the Editor of a highly respected paper of Chennai uses his access to itscolumns to demonise the Dalai Lama and the Tibetans just as Beijing is in the habit of doing.

6. As you move around Chennai, you see thousands of advertisements inviting you to buy “The Hindu”. When you see those advertisements,think of Shri Ram and his writings in support of the Chinese and in demonisation of the Dalai Lama and the Tibetans and ask yourself thequestion:” Does such a newspaper deserve my continued support?”. The choice is yours.[link]

Kalam’s Address Faulted by Comrades

India’s good for nothing comrades have created another meaningless controversy over nothing.

February 23, 2007 President Kalam’s address to Parliament on Friday stirred up a row with the Left parties asking the Central government to take cognizance of the Hindi translation of the word secularism used in the address, saying ‘dharmanirpeshkta’ (secularism) had been wrongly termed as ‘panthnirpeshkta’ (only Hindu religion).

Perhaps if they can assemble ten people who can spell either of those two words let alone know what the difference between them really is.

At a joint press conference convened to brief the media about the issues the Left proposed to raise during the Budget Session of Parliament, Communist Party of India parliamentary group leader Sitaram Yechury said whether it was a ‘bureaucratic’ or the translator’s mistake, it had to be corrected as Indian Republic was based on separation of religion from the state.

Maybe Mr Sitaram Yechury should better spend his time finding out why his parents gave him such a communal first name- It has both Sita and Ram in it.Perhaps he will blame it on the “imperialist conspiracy” and in true Maoist style denounce his own parents as “reactionaries”.

It is noteworthy to remember that the left had opposed Dr Abdul Kalam’s nomination for President back in 2004. Since according to them he was not pseudo-secular enough.

They are creating all this unnecessary nonsense while even after 60 years of Socialist rule India is at the bottom of every development index and hundreds of millions of our countrymen are living in inhumane conditions and the left parties on the other hand are blocking every meaningful reform that would raise all those people out of poverty and instead are protecting the labour aristocracy in the PSUs and ofcourse creating useless controversies to distract the people from the real issues needing urgent attention.

Indian Comrades Get The ‘Shock’ Of Their Lives

The Indian Comrades rolled the red carpet with lots of joy for their master from Beijing hoping that he would pat their backs for being such nice puppies.But they were in for a rude shock. The master told them point blank to dump their outdated policies and adopt a ‘more pragmatic approach’ in this era of globalisation.

NEW DELHI, NOVEMBER 22: Chinese President Hu Jintao on Wednesday had a word of advice for India’s Communist leaders — adopt a ‘more pragmatic’ approach, as this is the era of globalisation that provides immense scope for economic prosperity.

Globalisation provides scope for economic prosperity, and a “more pragmatic and positive approach” must be adopted by the Left to develop infrastructure and the economy, he told the leaders.

And he made sure to really rub it in if the message he had for them hadn’t yet entered their thick skulls.

Hu asked the Left leaders to play a more active role in states where they are in power and invited them to China to gain a first-hand experience of progress made by the Communist nation.

RS of Naveenbharat has a great analyses on this rude shock from unexpected quarters for the Comrades.

Comrade Hu is Coming

Our Chota Comrades are thrilled. The Great Yellow Khan is on his way and they are delirious with joy and happiness.They are buying new clothes and perfumes, distributing sweets and rolling out the red carpet for their master. They will be lining up on either sides of the streets with red flags and rose petals and their media will be singing choir songs in praise of their lord.

I ran into one of the chota comrades out on one of those streets that were to be graced by the Great Khan’s presence. They were all running around decking it up with huge cutouts of their master and planting red flags on all the electric poles. Their eyes watered wistfully dreaming about the day when their master soon returns with some tanks to ushur in the Worker’s paradise.

I managed to catch hold and speak to one of them.

Me– Excuse me Sir, may i know what this is all about?

Chota Comrade(with a surprised look on his face)- Comrade! Comrade! you don’t know what is happening. Comrade Hu is coming.

Me– Yes, that’s what i want to know sir. Who is coming?

CC– Exactly.Comrade Hu is coming, comrade.

Me(mildly irritated)- Stop addressing me as Comrade. Tell me what is happening and who is coming?

CC(almost shouting)- It is Hu, Hu is coming. Comrade Hu is coming?

Me(fully irritated)- Is it some kind of taboo that you should not take his name. Now will you just stop playing games and tell me who or what is coming?

CC– Ok! Ok! i will tell you more clearly. Hu, our great leader and comrade is coming. He is our master and we serve him with our life and will die at his one word.

Me(throwing my hands up in despair)- Ok!, who is this great leader and master for whom you are ready to die for.

CC(snapping to attention and giving a lal salaam)- Comrade Hu!

Me(shrugging my shoulders and rolling my eyes in despair)- Ok! if u don’t want to tell me the name of your master. It’s fine with me.

sidenote– Chinese president Hu Jintao will address joint sitting of Indian parliament and the plebians/parliamentarians have been summoned one week in advance to listen to the wisdom of the Great yellow Khan. The chota comrades are expected to be there in full strength.
