Defreezing Comrade Gupta

From Gentle Revolutionary

To read my profile of Indrajit Gupta, please click on the link or the picture. This will take you to Picasa. If the picture appears too small, please click on the picture. It will enlarge and will display a magnifying glass facility on the top right.

I took the first readable draft of Gentle Revolutionary to Harish Khare at The Hindu. Zip... in not more than ten seconds Khare appeared to have read it and put it on his in tray.

"Arre baba, this is just a draft. Give me a response." I pleaded.

"What response ?" Khare grimaced and said nothing.

Harish Khare is too cool to respond to pleas from the likes of a Divakar S Natarajan.

Google "Gentle Revolutionary" today and you will find around four thousand results. Including one from the Soviet archives. But this was a year before Google and I thought I had minted it.

The 2003, Kamal Haasan, Madhavan, starrer "Anbe Sivan" is without a doubt inspired by this article and it would be nice if somebody out there admitted it.

Shiney Ahuja Versus The Chief Information Commissioner Of India

In India today, where the systems of delivery of justice are in a frightfully derelict state, mutual consent is a mutual delusion.

A Chief Information Commissioner who has systematically perverted the RTI Act 2005 is no less psychotic, no less heinous and an infinitely larger menace to Indian society than an individual who has run amok.

And those who just stand silently and watch this violence, let me just say, they have lost the right to innocence.

Consider the facts: A suffering Indian citizen, petitions that his life and liberty have been conspiratorially incarcerated since decades, and submits impeccable evidence in support of his plea.

CIC contemptuously dismisses his plea and further counsels the petitioner to submit to the arbitrariness of officials.

This act alone completely violates both the letter and spirit of the law that he is sworn to uphold.

When the suffering but public spirited citizen does not obey his diktat, the CIC punishes him by throwing his appeal into a dark dungeon where it does not emerge until close to two years have passed.

Only in India will we lay hope on a process that comes to a culmination after years.

Self respecting people would consider this process a joke and the people who administer this farce as less classy, but more sinister than The Joker from Batman.

When finally the case does come up, the CIC smugly but relentlessly violates and distorts the petitioners pleas, eagerly laps up the Prime Minister's Office's (no offence to the Prime Minister - I have had a ring side view of how our babus treated another good man in high office) lazy lies and demonstrates once again - as if there were any doubts about that predilection of our babulog - how people in high places can skewer the law with brutal impunity and leave hapless law abiding citizens eating the dust.

And what about India's lapdog press and decadent editorial class ?

That dark mass of Dementors
dutifully photocopy the CIC's handouts of his wisdom and the next morning every sorry Indian is reading about the swashbuckling derring-do of our marvelous baburatna !

Why Prabhu Chavla, His Esteemed Publication And India's Editorial Class Have Decayed And Are Dangerous

If corruption is eradicated, many of our national problems can be solved. Don't you think people have ignored this menace or accepted it as a necessary evil? June 13, 2009

—Asked by Vijay

I think people have accepted it as a reality as they have lost hope in the political leadership.

Prabhu Chavla

You are probably an honourable man Shri Chavla, but if you come to me with that attitude, you should not blame me if I conclude that you and your esteemed publication stink.

Why ?

Because you are a powerful man and yet you pass the buck on to the usual suspects - "the people" and "the political leadership"

You have not even applied your mind, just tossing of a pernicious prejudice, which the rest of us have to suffer.

Your apathy is rotten and destructive and you force your dementia down the rest of struggling India!

You and your esteemed visitors are cordially invited to Divakar S Natarajan and Varun Gandhi Cannot Both Be Wrong !
News and views from Divakar S Natarajan's, "no excuses", ultra peaceful, non partisan, individual sathyagraha against corruption and for the idea of the rule of law in India. Now in its 18th year.

Prejudiced CIC Laps Up PMO Lies and other posts.

The fact that you may be unconscious about your pathological conformism and servility, is exactly that which makes you , your esteemed publication and India's media in general such a toxic burden for the rest of us.
