I often forget myself that the real target of this blog is not the Dynasty, but the Dynastycrooks. The Dynasty in itself is really a symbol. I mean, does anyone really think that Rahul Gandhi is capable of planning something evil? The Dynasty is evil in what it represents, as a superstructure protecting an entire ecosystem of anti-national forces. It is inside this ecosystem that new evil ideas are mooted, tested out and sharpened for use.
Here in this sandbox, you can see a Mameluk dipping his toes and checking the waters: how safe would it be to start hating the Army openly? Right now, some low level guy called Manoj Joshi is doing it. If the reports from the test flights are okay and encouraging, some slightly senior Mameluks will be asked to play with similar ideas next. And then there is always Digvijay Singh, who performs the final testing before a certain idea is cleared for being attributed to the Dynasty.
I choose my words carefully here. The Dynasty doesn’t actually have any views or emotions. Views are attributed to the Dynasty based on the decision of the Mameluk core. Remember the infamous case of Salman Khursheed declaring that Sonia G had cried copiously for the Batla House terrorists? When the whole thing turned into a massive embarrassment, Salman Khursheed explained that he was only relating an “anecdote”.
So, did Madam Gandhi cry or not? For an ordinary human being, this would be a simple yes/no question. But, Madam is just a symbol onto which pre-decided emotions are projected. It was the same way with Madam Sonia being “unhappy”.
Here is the heart of this Mameluk’s article:
“The problem today is of political movements that are trying to stoke ultra-nationalism, and in the process seeking to conflate the status of the army as ultra-patriotic deshbhakts. This goes against the grain of the Army and its outlook.
The average person who joins the Army, as a jawan or officer, does not do it out of ultra-patriotism, or to “serve the nation”, but because it is a job that comes with social respect, a reasonable income and a life-time pension.
It raises the status of the family of the soldier or officer and is a means of upward social mobility.”
Ha! These spiteful, jealous comments above are the purest products of a Mameluk mind. Looks like some people are green with envy at the all round glorification of the Indian Army.
Hey, you guys never ask questions when every two bit jholawala with an axe to grind is given the status of a crusader out to save the world. Okay…so an army man wants social respect, reasonable income and a life-time pension. May I ask what the NGO jholawallahs and the mediawallahs and the endless ranks of “civil society groups” want? They are all dedicated to the nation and the larger cause of humanity, no?
The Army is getting some adulation and suddenly these people have developed indigestion. LOL. May I ask where these people were for the remaining 50 weeks of the year when the activists are shown as heros. That Agent Ayyub used to have a banner on her Twitter page saying ” I pledge to protect the idea of India”. Ha! Mr. Manoj Joshi, would you care to examine carefully what are the motivations of the Agent Ayyubs and Sagarika Ghoses and the Rajdeep Sardesais?
No, really let’s do this Manoj Joshi. Let us ask what are the motivations of the Romila Thapars and the Ramachandra Guhas. We hear that dissent has become really difficult and dangerous in this country. Then, why are these people dissenting so much? Are you saying they have embarked on this difficult and dangerous path of dissent against fascist Modi sarkar purely out of some ultra-bhakti to the “idea of India”? No, you have to be consistent Mr. Manoj Joshi. Let us sit down and discuss what are the real motivations of the dissent brigade.
So many Awards have been returned. Presumably these were hard earned awards that the recipients were proud of. And they gave it all up to fight a risky battle with a fascist government. Why are they taking so much risk, Mr. Joshi? Should we believe it is out of their ultra-loyalty to a pluralistic, democratic India or should we believe they are dissenting professionally in order to gain something? Now let us speculate on who is paying them to dissent and why…
Folks, these people are really something. The all round praise for our Army seems to them like burning coals that are too hot to handle. And they are writhing in agony. You know Mr. Joshi, just a few weeks before the media was praising the Army, it was praising some Albanian nun who was paid by the church to “save” the dying, whatever that means. Remember the media storm when someone dared to question her motives? Today you accuse others of being fascist and shutting you up with the “nationalism” card. Where were you when a certain person dared to question her motives and the media came down on him like a ton of bricks? At least the army did something. The amount of undeserved credit being given to this Albanian nun goes to absurd limits: now her ghost is getting credit for curing cancer everywhere from India to Brazil. Did that ever bother you, Mr. Joshi?
