7 reasons why the legend of Kanhaiya will go bust…

There are so many contradictions that are built into the legend of Kanhaiya Kumar of Jawaharlal Nehru University. It is for that very reason the legend is doomed to die in the long run. He is being propped up big time by #AdarshLiberals and the media.

They simply refuse to acknowledge the amount of things that are wrong with him…

1. He was in charge of an anti-India event that a judge called “gangrene”.

The fact remains that Kanhaiya was a student leader who organized an anti-India rally and made absolutely no efforts to stop it when it went out of control. His supporters brought in issues like fake videos and outsiders disrupting the event, but the root issue is that it was an out and out anti-India event that cannot be condoned.

Anti-India anti-Hindu anti-Supreme Court pro-Pakistan pro-Afzal Guru slogans were shouted at the campus and why students of a government funded university need to be doing all this is unfathomable.

Student unions in JNU generally run amuck with their anti-India campaigns and this was not even the first such event organized there. (Though now all future events will come under much greater scrutiny.)

2. He’s an accused out on bail and a fined student to boot.

Why do we glorify convicts? Why do we glorify criminals? In this case why are we glorifying an accused? Kanhaiya has been fined Rs 10,000 by the JNU authorities and a case is still being fought in court.

Why are all #AdarshLiberals so eager to prop up such a person? Have we forgotten the judge Pratibha Rani said of the issue: If the infection results in infecting the limb to the extent that it becomes gangrene, amputation is the only treatment!

She asked Kanhaiya to give an undertaking that he wouldn’t participate actively or passively in any activity which may be termed as anti-national and he was asked to make all efforts within his power to control anti-national activities in the campus.

3. He keeps bad company like the Jungle Raj King.

Lalu Prasad Yadav is in the running for India’s worst politician and was a Grade 1 disaster for the State of Bihar bringing the infamous Jungle Raj. To make matters worse he’s not even an accused but a convict given temporary relief by the Supreme Court.

So Kanhaiya falls at the feet of such a person and takes his blessings! Indian politics is quite bizarre indeed. To make matters worse Kanhaiya’s supporters thrashed those who were waving black flags at him.

So while Kanhaiya has all the right to rubbish India, others don’t even have the right to wave a black flag at him it seems. In JNU he is associated with fellow anti-nationals and once he jumped into politics it’s not as if he’s acquainting himself with the best in the land to learn the lessons of good governance.

4. He’s a Communist ideologue preaching a failed utopia…

Karl Marx unleashed utopia called the Communist Manifesto in 1848 and since then it has meant nothing but destruction. China turned to capitalism to survive in 1978 while the USSR collapsed in 1991. Today its flame is being kept alive by failed States like North Korea.

When we got Independence, West Bengal was our top industrial, intellectual and cultural State. Communism dragged it into the mud. Kerala is doing OK because of the LDF-UDF pendulum and also the CPM is just one of the many parties in LDF.

The CPI is a near dead party in India and we are supposed to take its student wing All India Students Federation seriously? (Kanhaiya is from the AISF) Statements like “A red sun will emerge in India” made by him sound hilarious at best.

5. …who hypocritically loves being a capitalist!

It’s OK if you sincerely believe that Communism is the answer. Kanhaiya himself announced that he was from a humble background. But how come he’s criss-crossing the country by plane? Who’s footing his enormous bill?

Expensive lawyers represented his case for free, or so we are told. One report said that he was spotted with bodyguards (who paid for them?) and one Tweet said that he was spotted in business class. There’s no point in blasting capitalism non-stop if you’re going to enjoy all its fruits.

And who’s doing the funding itself is a crucial question. Kanhaiya is actually a pseudo-Communist like millions of others in India.

6. A really bad student who threatened a girl and flashed his…

Kanhaiya’s core competency is that he is a student. Is he known for his gold medals or his cutting edge research? No. He is known more for agitating which is not the job of a student in the first place and his anti-national rallies.

In fact in one incident Kanhaiya insisted on his right to urinate in public and threatened a girl who opposed him and flashed his private parts. Everything we know about Kanhaiya points to him being a sinner rather than a saint.

7. A man of zero substance.

Look at all his speeches and you will not even find 1% of substance. “Azadi from poverty” sounds fancy but means nothing and gives no concrete suggestions. He has merely been repeating stuff which Communist ideologues have been saying all over the world for more than a hundred years and Indian leaders have been parroting for decades.

He has no new ideas and no new plans. He is presenting an old wine in an old bottle and the opponents of Prime Minister Narendra Modi are so desperate that they will clutch at straws to present just about anyone as a counter.

In the 2014 general elections, the Congress got 44 seats, the AAP 4 and the CPI just 1.

First they propped up 44-seat Congress’ Rahul Gandhi and then 4-seat AAP’s Arvind Kejriwal and now they are trying to do the same to 1-seat CPI’s Kanhaiya. What a fall!

#AgustaWestland musings…

Speculation whenever Sonia leaves India.
Yesterday…
Why is she going? Will we ever know?
Tomorrow…
Will she come back or stay there for good?

1983: Modi passes MA.
2014: Modi become PM.
2016: Sonia’s name comes in ‪#‎AugustaWestland‬.
Within days loyal servant Kejri rakes up 33-year-old issue to divert attention.

Possible yellow journalism headline in 2019 when his Haters run out of even the flimsiest and thinnest of allegations:
Is Modi an alien?

#AgustaWestlandScam musings…

Good ole days.
It feels as if the Congress is still in power at the Centre and doing scams upon scams.
‪#‎AgustaWestland‬

Congratulations!
The Congress now has more “major scams” than MPs in the Lok Sabha.
(Minor scams probably more than its MLAs all across India!)

The Peter Principle is total nonsense.
Sonia rose at least 100 levels above her competency levels.

Congress also has an Odd-Even scheme.
On Odd days, it scams.
On Even days, it scams.

No coincidence that the most highlighted phrase of ‪#‎Choppergate‬ is Sonia’s “I am not afraid of anyone!”
People still scared.

#‎Dynasty‬
‪#‎FormerPM‬
‪#‎Congress‬
‪#‎Defence‬
‪#‎Media‬
‪#‎Middlemen‬
‪#‎Foreigners‬
‪#‎Bureaucrats‬
‪#‎AgustaWestland‬ is indeed the mother of all scams.

Clutching at straws…
2014…
We are at rock bottom. The only way is up.
2016…
We are at one level below rock bottom. The only way is up.
‪#‎Congress‬

Congress in power defends Congress scams.
Congress in opposition goes on offensive over Congress scams.
Media will always blast BJP.

Lalu may be convicted.
Sonia may be chargesheeted.
MMS may sign papers leading to scams.
But only allegations against Modi have to be outraged 24X7.

J&K Dy CM to NIT students…
In order to check whether your security is adequate or not, I cannot come because my security is not adequate.

A movie on the political situation of Bihar would be called Jungle (Raj) Book and it would get an A certification.

The Indian Lords of Twitter…

Here’s looking at some Indian Twitter millionaires who have emerged as the most followed in their particular field…

Bollywood: Amitabh Bachchan.
@SrBachchan, 20.7 million followers.
Amitabh made his filmi debut in 1969 and became a superstar in the 1970s. The Grand Old Man has been around for ages, but he is no fossil. He was one of the first people to jump on the blogging bandwagon and did it quite regularly. He is a regular Tweeter too and has notched close to 50,000 Tweets till date.

Politics: Narendra Modi.
@narendramodi, 19.6 million followers.
So the Indian Twitterverse produces its first ever Prime Minister. That may be a bit of a hyperbole, but Twitter has a big role in Modi’s rise to the top spot of India. No Indian politician comes close. (Many years ago @ShashiTharoor was the leader though). But more than anything is how Modi has used Twitter to fire his ambitions. He has connected with the young in social networking and Modi’s army regularly ReTweet him and fight for him. There are also handles which translate his Tweets into various Indian languages.

Spirituality: Dalai Lama.
@DalaiLama, 12.7 million followers.
The Dalai Lama came to India in 1959 and since then has been a resident here calling himself a “son of the soil”. His Tweets are inspiring and spread a great deal of goodwill and harmony. Incidentally, he is following exactly zero people. He was India’s leader till 2014 but since then has fallen way behind.

Official account: PMO India.
@PMOIndia: 11 million followers.
There was hardly any traction to this account when Manmohan Singh was in charge. However it has zoomed ahead after Modi took over. It’s also always buzzing with activity a sort of government news feed and a lit of achievements. On Twitter Modi + PMO amounts to 30 million plus followers!

Cricket: Sachin Tendulkar.
@sachin_rt, 10.7 million followers.
When Sachin joined Twitter, the Indian Twitterverse went berserk. He picked up tens of thousands of followers in no time. He soon became the first Indian to notch up 1 million followers. However since then many Bollywood stars have left him way behind. That’s probably because of his lacklustre form towards the end of his career and subsequent retirement. Sachin is erratic in his Tweets, but still writes enough to keep his die-hard fans engaged. Virat Kohli is close on his heels with 10.5 million followers.

PIO: Aziz Ansari.
@azizansari10.5 million followers.
Indian Americans are doing very well and on Twitter at least, Aziz is the clear leader. He has his roots in Tamil Nadu and is stand-up comedian who has been part of many tours. He has acted in many TV shows with the most prominent being Parks and Recreation. Aziz visited India a few years back and joked that he could act in a Tamil action movie. Indians may not be familiar with him but may have heard his voice in Hollywood movies like Ice Age: Continental Drift (Squint) and Epic (Mub).

News handle: The Times of India.
@timesofindia: 6.9 million followers.
India’s oldest newspaper and the English daily with the most circulation manages to hold its ground on Twitter too. With close to a quarter of a million Tweets, it continues to pull its weight in the Indian Twitterverse.

Authors: Chetan Bhagat.
@chetan_bhagat, 6.9 million followers.
You’ve got to hand it to Bhagat: Whether you like his books or not, he definitely has built himself as a big brand. Twitter plays an integral part in that. Out of all the celebrities, Bhagat is probably the most active and interactive. He never shies from controversies and his Tweets always make news. Once when he blocked a few people many years back, #ChetanBlocks became a top trend. His open support for Modi got him many bouquets and brickbats. AAP followers also keep attacking him from time to time.

Industrialists: Ratan Tata.
@RNTata2000, 6.1 million followers.
Everybody Loves Ratan Tata! In real life too and also on Twitter. This despite the fact that he’s hardly active on this medium. For ages it used to be @TheVijayMallya who is much more active but has since fallen on bad times.

Comedians: Kapil Sharma.
@KapilSharmaK9: 5.2 million followers.
Comedy Nights With Kapil saw a meteoric rise and its hero became one in Bollywood movies too. Kapil is a superstar in his own right and was a late entrant on Twitter (he came in June 2013), but he’s on top here too.

Worldwide…

Indians are rising in in the Global Top 100 list and we currently have Amitabh, Modi, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Hrithik Roshan. In mid-2014 from Bollywood there was only Amitabh, but with 7 more apart from him and more in the next 100, they are taking over Twitter! Priyanka has a great chance to go even further thanks to her exposure to the West.

While Ashton Kutcher narrowly went past CNN to become the first with 1 million followers, the landmarks of 10 million and 25 million were first breached by Lady Gaga.

The current leader is Katy Perry, the first to get 50 million followers, narrowly edging out Justin Bieber in the race for that landmark. She’s close to 88 million and must be eyeing the 100 million mark.

As far as the next Indian landmark is concerned, it remains to be seen who reaches 25 million followers first.

In terms of ReTweets, Ellen DeGeneresOscar selfie not only became the first to get 1 million ReTweets, but also crossed 3 million later on!

Modi’s victory Tweet got 80,000+ RTs.

The #PanamaPapers

Panama canal: A conduit to carry black money.
Panama disease: A financial disease involving offshoring.
Panama hat: Income Tax department ko topi pahanana with offshoring firms.
Panama cocktail: To mix white and black money in your financials.

1996: The Tailor of Panama.
20 years later…
1996: The Launderer of Panama.

Hamaam main sab nanga goes international.

Picchle saalo main itna leak ho chuka hai ki samundar bhar gaya hai, par mushkil se boond bhar arrests hi hue hai.

#BharatMataKiJai @ #NITSrinagar

The irony…
JNU students raised anti-India slogans and were arrested after due procedure.
NIT students raised pro-India slogans and were beaten up.

BJP leaders goofing up day in and day out. Alarming part is that they still look dazzlingly brilliant when compared to AAP-Congress leaders.

New term: “Mild lathi charge”.
Was the lathi mild?
Was the police charge mild?
Did they hit the students mildly?
