Tribal progressives and Old humanists

"This man never pretended to be anything but a progressive himself, so yes, he so has his right to have his opinion"  - A wonderful lady is giving a bad justification on CNN, the man is excused if he belongs to the tribe. Progressives have tendency of tribal like affiliation though they pretend principles.

A good humanist speech on how the left uses argument of culture to defend islamists. this is the same left that creates culture revolutions in India.

 I used to think humanist audience supposed to be young , in this case the audience is old people.

Curiosity and Introspection- Sona Mohapatra

  It was  curiosity  and an introspection to find Sona Mohapatra .

Curiosity, because  I can be familiar with her  speaking style, understand her jokes.. because  I have met many women, not celebrities, ordinary people  who expressed in similar cultural way. I have a sense of cultural and musical experience,  that one   might experience if one grew up as  Ms Sona Mohapatra. Curiosity how she has done big, to know  she is a celebrity - I found from number of likes in her facebook page.

 This is good entertainment,  Sona has superlative words for women capability of unconditional surrender, love as in 'you are my love'. In this popular song She refuses to be sold for money - That is quite a depressing aspiration and value promoted among the youth, particularly by people who might have grown up with  Sati Savitri , tara, mandodari.  I see some consistency in this message - So this is the introspection part.

Communists and India

An informative article on role of Indian communists.

  • Indian communists supported Pakisthan Movement - Obvious, they disagreed with the british on the ruler. Tahira Mazar Ali Khan delivered the support. With major intellectual capital of communism from Europe, there was lot of similarity between communists and British.
  • Emergency was supported by soviet wing - in fear of RSS and hindus. Opposed by some others. The author of the above article resents the opposition, he thinks emergency would have broken the hindus.They hate Modi. Simple.

Raghukula riti Vs Derida - A Word on Relativist argument

My First impressions of Post Modernism - Key concepts 'relativism of truth' ( Appearance of truth in Samsara is a serious complex subject at the least - example: Maya) seemed to have burrowed from hinduism, except that it started at the wrong place, had the wrong focus, it stopped where hinduism barely begun to start. One of the concepts - relativism- is quite important to post-modernism.

Its main attack was truth, say truth of texts, cult leaders , of opportunists and terrorists.

However, it seemed, as if hindus/Indians are major consumer of this idea of post-modern relativism. Unlike in major 'religions', Significant Truths in hinduism are  not merely conclusion of logic or acceptance of text.  For extraordinary , it was extremely complex. For ordinary,   Sri Ramachandra didn't refer to a text before going to forest, Raghukula riti sada....

When post-modern relativism becomes popular in India, truth - the promise, the words ...became causality. The new truths has become organizations, affiliations, brotherhood, influence, party and food distribution etc. This is opposite of what could have happened easily.

An utilitarian argument justifying death of Giraffe

A Giraffe was hunted down by a hunter. People criticized the hunter. Now she offers an utilitarian argument to justify the death of Giraffe :

  • The Giraffe was cut into pieces, its meat was fed to people.
  • Its bone scrapped out and used
  • The tail of Giraffe was cut and made ornaments.
Thus killing of Giraffe was proper, its photo was tweeted to honor its life.

Bretain and anglicized India used lot of utilitarian arguments to study the culture in third-world countries, most of those cultures are dead.

B R Ambedkar - Worked for Imperial govt

Arundhoty Roy,  was raised by her christian mother, divorced from the hindu father, she has supported Kashmir terrorists attacking India, Maoists attacking hindus. A Darling  of western media, she deplores the demonic  “demonic” attempt of Narendra Modi to claim Ambedkar as a hindu leader.

 In this case however, she is more correct  on the substance, the bad words "demonic" are colonial hangover.

 Ambedkar didn't speak for hinduism, quite contrary. He worked with colonial administration for most of his life to defeat Indian nationalism, creating a weak Indian state, even going as far as to create a  rebellion against hinduism  . When Gandhi undertook fasts, Ambedkar worked with British authorities for Separate electorates. While Jinnah won, Ambedkar lost, defeated by congress. He managed to foist the reservations after congress showed mercy after Indian independence.

   Ms Roy is right to this extent - Arun Shouri has a book worshiping false gods documenting all this.

  Unlike Jinnah, who was trying to get maximum benifits to Islam, Ambedkar was trying to give a low blow to hinduism. Separate electorates meant, hindus would spent next few decades to ponder why they can't have a common purpose - India achieved this by taking over temples, temple properties and by making reservations central focus of Indian politics.

Because of circumstances - Ambedkar couldn't have argued for section of hindus to convert to a western religion - Ambedkar settled for Buddhism, Buddha was known to many hindus.

With so many Hindus wrongly thinking Ambedkar as the original author of constitution, ignoring his collusion with brits , demonizing the Brahmins, Modi is correct from his perspective, it is not a demonic attempt.

World Politics - Trying to make sense

Influential list , obviously it will never be complete.

Governing Bodies - Govts such as USA Govt ( and UK), Russian, Chinese,German, Islamic Govts.

Political Bodies: United Nations with security council, EU, American Political structure/NGOs, OIC.

Religious Systems : Christianity, Islam, Jew.
                                    [ Hindu - Brahmin perhaps never  recovered from colonial attack, Hindu/Budhist  monks submit to MIT scientists(?) for post-Risley-skull measurement studies in Yoga.  Okay, Sri Sri Ravishankar feels good, Dalali Lama talks well and leads a movement that he alone can do].

Governing Ideas : Progressive, Capitalism, Liberalism, Libertarian, Sharia law, Made In China.

Classical Intellectual Influence :  Hagel [Huge influence in India - Pretense of historical argument made hostile ideas popular - false claims of Aryan-dravidian, oppressor-oppressed],
                                                        Marx [Grand mother status among Maoists and communists],
                                                        Derida [ Source of Your terrorist is my freedom fighter]
                                                                    [Source of Truth is a brahminical conspiracy ]
                                                       Stuart Mill [  Primitive Utilitarian ideas were early weapons to explain away colonial misrule in India. Anglicized India owes to stuart Mill  with the other Mill, Jones, Max Mueller ]
                                                        [ More to add...]

Historical Events
  • The British empire. 
  •  First World War - Alliance of British and Arabs, Germany with Turkey.  [I suspect - These alliances, along with support of the empire by Syed Ahmad Khan would make British suspicious of Gandhi and Hindus, support Pakisthan movement] .
  • Second world war - Empire weakened.  New military alliances. New world.
  • Indian Independence - Empire gone.
  • Post Soviet economic liberalization in socialist countries and development of internet.
