Dravidian to Dharma

*Rant Begin*

What’s the noise all about:

It is MK’s birthday. The senile ‘leader’, the raft of dravidian people in the ocean of aryan subterfuge. As usual, his ‘kazhaga udanpirappugal’ are flocking to his house to ‘wish him a long life’, may be with the confidence that it is unlikely. The man is 94 years old, cannot move on his own, can’t speak. You know, old age and disease have finally got to him. Well, he may not believe in being a ‘jivātma’ but surely he at least now knows that his time is coming to an end.  *Poof*… nothingness. I am sure he is looking forward to being rid of his consorts, and the baggage they begot him.

The scene as it is:

The streets are lined with tubelights, with electricity stolen from the distribution boxes. There are loudspeakers blaring ‘songs’ in praise of Anna, Periyar and MK. Not near his house, but in unremarkable pockets all over the areas nearby.

I happened to have the misfortune of being forced listen to some of those. Even if for a few minutes. And thoughts came rushing in to my mind. These songs express gratitude to the ‘God of hearts’, ‘Father of Rationals’… they weave garlands of epithets, in ‘glowing’ words that would make some puke in disgust. The singers actually ‘cry’ to imitate the pain that this ‘separation’ causes for ‘people’.

Bulky men and women in red-black bordered dresses line up in front of Sri Venugopalaswamy temple in Gopalapuram. Rather than pay their respects to the Lord, they bend their backs to a mound of flesh and bones. Mind it, these are not the typical atheists. Most of them are closet followers of some religion. The worst are those I call the  “black shirt gang”. The last remaining vestiges of a movement built on hate towards brahmins, stale in their outlook, rotten in their speech and long bereft of any moral sense or leadership.

This is the same crowd that puts down Hinduism for its ‘regressive and oppressive’ practices, makes fun of ‘devotional’ songs, claims Rama and Krishna to be figments of imagination. Seems like, to them, spirituality is a mass delusion. Together with the dravidian kazhagams, they have tried to build an alternate reality where Tamil language is a god, Jesus, Allah, Mohammed, Buddha, Marx, Che Guevara, Lenin, Stalin are all role models. Further, in their addiction to power, they spew liberal gibberish now and then to give an illusion that they are relevant in these times.

What the reality is:

Now, think on this carefully. These ‘dravidian supremacists’ aren’t against the ‘aryan’ concept of worship and religiosity. Rather, they just want themselves or their ‘great leaders’ to be the object of that worship. In fact, they are so ‘large hearted’, they will allow, even welcome, worship of Jesus, Allah or any other ‘god’ concept. Just not sanatana dharma. This unholy nexus between the dravidian politicians and the merchants of love (cultural uprooting) and peace (simply death) is the foremost scourge that looms on the land that prospered under and symbolized Dharma.

It is natural human tendency to be subordinate to something or someone. Is that not true? The dravidian philosophy stalwarts just want the people to be ‘slaves’ to their ‘gods’. They have no interest in protecting Tamil, but claim to speak for all tamil folk. They want people to be subordinate to their money, power, perverted versions of history and rascals passing off as intellectuals. Hence, they are no better than the parasites that ravage our lands, culture and minds under the guise of charity, good news or wrath of some ‘god’.

The time approaches:

The so called stalwart leaders are ending their miserable existence one by one. Their ‘armies’ are being thrown in to chaos, with factions bursting out from the crevices of corruption, loathing and jealousy. While the disease of minority appeasement is unlikely to disappear (we can thank the congress bootlickers for that), Truth of Dharma has now a chance to be reinstated. The false idealogies propagated by the chief charlatans of the ‘dravidian’ political movement will have to die without a whimper. And in that silence, Truth will be have to be heard resoundingly in people’s minds. That day is not, hopefully, not too far off.

Let the backbone of this politics be broken like a bamboo that breaks under the tusks of the majestic elephant of Dharma; May its roots rot and die, never to spring up again; May the fumes spread by this poison tree, that befuddles brains of people, be swept away by the gales of Truth.

Let Dharma be reinstated again. To be protected by us. To protect us.

*Rant Over*

Corporate performance management – Mantra effect!

Mantra – that which liberates the mind.

Some of the statements that I have heard (and not all of them were said to me) over the past couple of years literally makes my mind go Brrrffttzztt! How liberating!

You are a good performer, you really are. You did meet your goals and went the extra mile in many situations. But we just cannot give a 4 or 5 because we need to follow a distribution. Only 10% of the team size can be at a 4 or 5 rating. But you did get the highest % hike!

Guess what the team size was.

You did a good job last couple of months, but I give you a rating of 2 because your ex-boss, my predecessor, did not give me a summary of what you have accomplished.

How unique? Totally responsible and accountable!

There will be no raise for anyone in the company given the dismal market and our bad cash situation. But in appreciation of your hard work, we will still hand out the bonuses… as per your contracts.

And the CEO and his cronies gets a couple of hundred thousand dollars as performance bonus. Performance? What performance?

Soooo… another year has passed. It was just wonderful, really wonderful. Your performance has been fantastic… and I am giving you a rating of 4. I would like to give you a 5, but hey no one is perfect and there is always room for improvement. So, 4 it is.

So, 5 is basically the carrot. The stick is another year long!

And so it goes on.

Karunanidhi worries about power cuts in Tamilnadu?

I don’t think he actually worries about a problem which he is responsible for in the first place.

And… I wonder where his party bootlickers got the electricity to power all the fancy lights and stuff to massage his ego by “celebrating” the bogus “new” tamil new year on pongal day.

Power cut? What?

Nithy nonsense

I wanted to put up an article on the recently, publicly disgraced Nithyananda (no Paramahamsa, no Swamiji… fair enough, I guess).

I had absolutely no interest in this guy even when he was writing articles left and right on several magazines. But I wanted to do some research in to this guy before putting up a post.

And I came across this text which was supposedly in one of the multitude of banners on the highways near Mysore…

I am not here to prove that I am God. I am here to prove that You are God.

I stopped reading after that one and decided this guy was not worth my time to write about.

But I still decided to put this post up so that I can display one of the most stupid captions I have seen in a long time.

Amusing news for me!

I just happened to come across the news that Prof. Periyardasan, a well known ‘Periyarist’ atheist and TV personality, had embraced Islam. I was late in catching this news since I was very busy in moving back to my hometown and starting at a new job.

I personally have no sympathy towards the ideals of Periyar and his followers in the D.K (Dravidar Kazhagam). While doing my bahcelor’s degree, I had unfortunately been forced to be in the audio vicinity of these fools spewing their anti-brahmin and anti-hindu vitriol in the guise of atheism (Seriously, your ears will bleed at the words these people used. Curiously enough, nothing was said (mocked?) about Islam or Christianity! Probably because the speakers feared losing their lives?)

Now, it is amusing how a person such as Periyardasan would have had the change of heart now, steeped in so called rationalism all these years, to embrace Islam. The more amusing news is that this latest conversion comes AFTER he became and stayed a Buddhist for sometime. That’s a confused mind there, I say. A LOT of confusion.

I wonder how he will face all those people with whom he would have debated for his belief over all these years.

Phew!!

Okhil Chandra Sen wrote this letter to the Sahibganj divisional railway office in 1909. It is on display at the Railway Museum in New Delhi.

Oi... wait for mee!!

Now we know why the British Raj introduced the loo on trains!


Misc. rants

1) DMK fools are up to it again. These people will never improve… including their grand old man, who has given a new definition to ‘family politics’!

2) Our fellow citizens chew too much paan. There is even one called ‘Honeymoon special’ costing Rs.100 with ‘chittu kuruvi lehiyam’ (no clue on what it is actually, but claimed to be an aphrodisiac… ). *Quack warning*

3) There are too many ‘swamijis’ around. Those who want to get cheated, get cheated.

4) Too much of ‘light’ pollution… its been some years since I had a clear view of starry sky at night.

5) Too many people dig their nose and fart in public. The look on their face when ‘discovered’ is, well… I will leave at that. Nasty.

Begging and ego!

This is probably old news, but here it is anyway:

These two folks beg and eat food purchased with the money received as alms. So what? There are millions who beg every single day. The only difference here is these folks go back from their one day outing with assurance that they will actually get their next meal.

Just another (weird) publicity stunt?

Note1: I don’t understand why, but there seems to be this belief that charity and social service is equivalent to spiritual development.

Note 2: Why would anyone want to lose their ego! If they meant to lose their ‘false-ego’, then it might make a bit of sense.

Note 3: The beggar get-up sucks on both of them… you want to beg, good for you!! At the very least, make it look realistic. Oh and don’t talk to reporters (just kidding!)

Sea of Tranquility?

This was the first time I took walk near Hitech city and happened to go near the Satyam “My Home Hub” building. It is right by the side of a REALLY busy road, with traffic nearly nauseating.

Next to the building was a HUGE residential complex named “Navadweepa” and it had a caption “Sea of Tranquility” or something like that.

An irony that I have not seen before. Hmm.

I, The Convert… Is this really needed?

At a time when India is suffering from a very nasty internal conflict based on religion, reading the article such as this one makes me wonder why someone like Anand Mahadevan had to “come out” and expose his faith in this manner and at this time.

I write this piece to make one point—that my conversion was not a change of religion but a change of heart.”

Good… point made. So?

“I don’t remember it verbatim, but they articulated a prayer of blessing on my life, future, career and family. It was a simple affair—no miracles, no angels visiting. All they did was utter a deep human cry out to the creator God and His only son Jesus Christ. When they said Amen, I felt in my heart a desire to follow Jesus. It was a faith encounter with God that I shall not even attempt to understand, rationalise or explain.”

He says he will not even attempt to understand. So, I am pretty sure he did the same thing (not trying to understand, that is) when he had his meetings with his ‘brahmin’ grandpa. And there ends the story.

So his whole article becomes just a piece of sentimental exposition which reeks of “hey, now you all know why and I don’t care what you think!!”
