See, see RaGa is speaking…Ha Ha Ha

  • Congress President Rahul Gandhi addresses public meeting in Agartala
    Congress President Rahul Gandhi addresses public meeting in Agartala

Can anyone advice Rahul Gandhi (RaGa) that what he and the other nincompoops of the Indian National Congress (INC) are doing in the name of electioneering campaign by targeting the defence forces of the country is only going to decimate their prospect – even if there is any, left? What does it take really to win elections in this country? The defence personnel who are keeping their territory safer from external aggression are being targeted by the INC, insanely. Can RaGa and his inept sister, Priyanka – and her equally inept hunk, Robert Vadra, breath freely if the soldiers in the country aren’t keeping it safe. Can anyone, and for that matter of fact the president of one of the country’s so called national party speak such imprudently in public. Does it not look like that the INC and its leaders are digging their own graves by punching national security and defence sector. Can a sensible Indian vote for a party which speaks in tune with the separatists, terrorists, skull caps, Pakistan and all the anti-India jibes?

That the INC does not have any agenda to woo voters in the ensuing general election can be gauged from their questioning the retaliation strike by the defence establishments in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack. The BJP won the 2014 election riding high on the “misdeeds” and “scams” committed by the INC led UPA whereas the latter literally finds nothing to take a charge on the “clean” NDA dispensation. What the INC and its morons are resorting to is basically out of dejection and frustration, which is normally the case when one, finds nothing to throw into their opposition. If the party have any sensible brain left then it is high time that people RaGa and other congressmen, including its apologists, should be told that what they are resorting to is only earning them public ire and nothing else. Today, the trash that the congressmen are throwing in the public is only pleasing its own and not the countrymen – who have time and again showed their preference in various Congress shows itself.

What does RaGa have in him? Nothing, though you need to have something when you head a party of the largest democracy. Those who think that RaGa is facing more flak have perhaps forgotten that his statements, whenever he opens his mouth, qualify him right away for criticism. Okay he may not have anything to offer in politics but what should one judge, when he says, “Saffron Terrorism is a larger threat than Islamic Terrorism”, if not appeasing the skull caps. Is it not a laughing stock that universities and institutions invite him to talk when he says, “I woke up in the morning last night” and more insultingly, “Poverty is a mindset” in a country like India – where the INC has deliberately kept the people deprived and poor in their sixty years regime, since independence. One can get a picture of his knowledge on his own country from this, “There’s so much of unemployment in Gujarat. About 27,000 crore jobs are lying vacant there”. Now, how can Gujarat have 27,000 crore vacant jobs lying when the population of this country is 130crores? Or more recently, when he said that all BJP leaders in the country are corrupt, what is the message that he is trying to send when NDA’s governance has been spotless. RaGa, go and get your facts right first, then go and talk in public. You have no right to criticize and insult Indian engineers for manufacturing semi-high speed train, Vande Bharat Express, under Make in India initiative that has developed mere technical snags. Those snags have been rectified since but could RaGa address the same in him.

When one is born in a family with silver spoon in their mouth they are expected to do well in order to keep up that legacy. There is tremendous burden on such shoulders and especially in this case when you are compared with your father, grandmother and grandfather. Arguably, Rajiv Gandhi (RG’s father) and Indira Gandhi (RG’s grandmother) would not have stooped to his level and take over a century old party, straight to hell. But this hellish ways, he has imbibed from his great grandfather (Jawaharlal Nehru) – whose blunders – whether it is Jammu and Kashmir, Northeast, Indo-China war and what had he – costing this country to this date. Imagine, what PM would RaGa make if he happens to get a chance to lead this country. This country cannot afford to have another Nehru like blunderbuss at the helm of all affairs. Many, who don’t want to imagine this, observed that this nation may well go back to darkness from whatever improvement that can be noticed for the last five years, now.

So, the journalist who asked RaGa in UK last year that what he has brought to politics apart from his surname, was spot on but the reply of RaGa that he should be judged by his “capability” and not be “condemned” for his family only proves the nothingness in him. He also urged others to listen to him, talk about issues, such as, foreign policy, economics, Indian development, agriculture openly and freely. How can one expect a sensible discussion with him when has no knowledge about his own country and speaks utter rubbish about issues on which he wishes to talk? Laughing stock. However, RaGa should concentrate on everything else – other than national security, defence, religion or anything else about the country – if at all the stemming humor has any effect on the electorates.

For RaGa to create any impact, whatsoever, he has to think out of the box. Given his “reach”, he should take the help of public relations specialists and try to revive the prospect of his party. He has to understand the fact that if Modi is creating waves with his chai, pradhan sevak, chowkidar and rest of it then he has to come out with smarter ideas instead of beating arrogance in public with dead appeasement tactics. As a leader, he has to show more maturity since he is competing with a persona who is regarded world over and shares a mass base. When Modi says that his vision is to see that the Indian democracy shall always fly and to make it a trillion dollar economy than RaGa’s accomplices like the ever aging Deve Gowda should make more responsible statements instead of saying that the only agenda of the Mahagathbandhan is to stop Modi. What do you mean by saying so that you don’t want the development of the country and its people? What message are you sending to the populace? The INC – which has been running this country and the independent states since independence like private jagirs have to shift its gear or else their current ways is only going to have a suicidal end. The electorates of this country are getting a reassuring example about the lack of patriotism of the INC and its foolish Mahagathbandhan leaders. If the INC leaders had any patriotism in them after the Britons left then they would not have deprived the people of this country from their entitlements and development. Now that Modi is trying to revive and giving the aam aadmi their dues, the morons, on the other side, are seeing that their “businesses” are at stake. Today, none can think of committing another fodder scam since the chowkidar in Modi will not allow that to happen. The INC and its bunch of Mahagathbandhan buffoons should realize the fact that they cannot fool the fellow citizen all the time.

Superstition and media

4 May 2009 - 11:46am | julita

It is said Media is propagating the superstitious belief sideways attracting the viewers in the name of entertainment modules. It is rightly said, that over thousands of years of evolution, everything has changed except the way we think...

Society has changed a lot. The impact of Globalisation has affected people's cultural status. They are swapped by high living standards and dazzling gizmos. The more we are moving on with the latest technologies the more we are becoming reserved and possessive regarding our thoughts and gratifications.

That makes us look for alternatives and methods by which we can hold on with and for the easy flow of destiny. Is it the "grahas and nakshatras" that help us in achieving our desired wishes? Why they are called by as the external forces which direct our happenings?

As you sow so shall you reap. Whatever a person does, he will get back what he deserves accordingly. But these are mere beliefs and are kept aside in a corner and going on for divine power for a blessed life doesn't matter what Karma (acti on, deeds) he/she does.

When there is so much of superstitious belief and irrational beliefs of this kind i.e. to believe in the unbelievable and bizarre things... In media this is not a new thing to be discussed at. Horror stories and chronicles based on superstition and supernatural beliefs have been telecasted since very long.

The shows like Zee Horror show, Aahat, Shh Koi Hai, Shh Phir Koi Hai Nishaan, Koi Aane Ko Hai , Anhonee, Who, Mano Ya Na Mano, Kya Hadsa Kya Haqeeqat, Honi-Anhoni, X-Zone, Khaufnaak etc. have always been popular along with the other Indian television' soap operas. Also in the mainstream Indian cinema movies like Raaz, 1920, Bhool Bhulaiya etc. have the pinched the notion of believing on the forces which are beyond our understanding. The picturisation of the mysterious part of the horror and thriller movies have good number of viewership.

Article 51-A(h) of the Indian Constitution states that "it shall be the duty of every citizen of India. to develop the scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of inquiry and reform". But this is never taken into account by any organisation or individual as such.

No action is meted out nor does any one have a say when Indian cinema and television keeps harping on the triump h of superstition, ghosts, astrological predictions against the credibility and rationale that science offers. Rather this is a market force factor in relating to TRP's and GRP's.

There are scenes acted out in programmes with the prior gathering of information about the viewers beforehand and use it in their shows to create such delusions.There are large columns dedicated to astrological interpretations, numerology tarot card readings, fengshui, vaastu in newspapers and magazines.

It is Science versus Superstition. At times the Scientists are also prone to having their untenable beliefs despite their eminence in their f ield of specialization. There are number of weird beliefs and customs that are maintained and being followed.

It is a 'breaking news' for the news channels every time there is something weird happening. And it for sure that heavy weights of illusive myths, superstitions, magic are injected, transmitted in everyone creating fear and phobias in the minds of the people.

Some recent news like father having sexual relationship with her daughter when a Tantrik allegedly encouraged the father of the family to rape his elder daughter, saying that he could become prosperous by doing so. Another case, a Tantrik appearing in dream s made the couple end up the life of their younger son with the transfusion of blood from their younger and more talented son to their elder one, who was academically mediocre believing that it could make the latter more bright. The operation, however, went horribly wrong and the younger sibling died of excessive bleeding. People, literate or illiterate repeatedly commit great mistakes in the name of divine power and blessings.

Forget about the fact, now it has been more to perpetuate belief in superstition, in ghosts, in astrological predictions, than to reinforce the value of science in everyday life. People are guided by astrology. It argues that there is no such thing as spirit possession, but rather that this is a manifestation of schizophrenia within the human psyche.

Instigating fear and anxiety through weird shows is unfair. This is making matters much worse because crimes are ever-increasing, it is lending people into a state of dilemma to choose what is best. Yes its true that tantrik forces are always fake still doubts erupt whether rely on divine forces or ones own spirit. Who is to be blamed or can media be really accused for the blame game where superstition is the religion of feeble minds...!
