Hypocrisy of Hyperventilating Fake Feminists- Sabha Parva- Renuka - Narendra Modi Spat

In the past few days, attempts were made to re-define Women empowerment and emancipation with two independent events. In one of the event, a left-leaning, establishment-hating poet of sorts was caught making immoral demands on underage girls, who were supposedly his fans or friends. The second event which was somehow positioned as a matter of woman's dignity was when many times Congress Parliamentarian, supposedly in the possession of expensive diamonds gifted by a tax-evader was caught having a dangerously deriding and derogatory laugh in the parliament, during the speech of Prime Minister, in spite of being chided by the speaker of the House, who happens to be the Vice-President of India. This brought in a minor rebuke from the PM, who compared this laughter which feminists struggled to defined something between crackle to smile with a soft sound, with that of characters in the TV serial Ramayana of yesteryears. The rich and powerful politician, Renuka Chowdhury, infamous for slapping in Government Servant and charged with taking bribes and well-known for using ill-language, saw the opportunity in to rediscover herself as a primitive, poor woman right out of her cave and being rebuked by a patriarch on being improper.

In an example of brilliant acrobatic skills, in the first case, where the celebrity poet was caught seeking nude pictures of underage girls, feminists of the world came together expressing solidarity to the aggrieved soul of the celebrity caught in this immoral exchange. This proves the level of emancipation our celebrity, left-liberals have achieved in terms of gender-neutrality. When it comes to their own, there is no division of gender and you will find women of the wine-sipping elite celebrity groups standing by the men of their kind. For them the world is beautiful with all the boundaries of gender, religion and faith non-existent. The only division that they realize is that of celebrity and non-celebrity. So we had a woman poet, a raging feminist as she describes herself, standing by the erring man, claiming that by apologizing profusely the man has equaled and surpassed the agony of little girls who were asked to share nude pictures by the man they were fan of.

For the same feminists, who disowned the little girls, the powerful Congress leader became a poor woman to rally behind. The Eagle became representative of pigeons and the lion represented the rabbit, as the empowered women strove for sympathy for another empowered woman.

In their hyper-excitement, warrior women-folks rose from two disparate ends of the battlefield. On one side was the opposition of demonization of Ranuka Chowdhury as she was compared, allegedly, with demoness Shoorpanakha, on the other side, was the attempt to deify Shoorpanakha. One needs great imagination, even assuming that PM referred to this particular character from Ramayana, as to if Shoorpanakha was only an emancipated woman in love, demonized by Valmiki, where is the offence and if she was indeed a demoness, where is the proof. The two arguments fed on themselves and in the end there were only ashes of hypocrisy. On account of conflicting messages, and cancelled outrage, Renuka episode will go down as a black-day in WhatsApp coordinated outrages organized by the Congress.

As far as the Sagarika (fondly called as Shogorika by those feigning acquaintance of the high-priestess of hypocrisy) Ghosh group of protesters go, Shoorpanakha was a woman in love, who had to suffer the royal ignore of a high-headed patriarchal Ram. Unfortunately for Ms. Ghosh, between Ram and Shoorpanakha, latter was  Brahmin, which makes the powerful narrative of Gupta school of thought impossible. With her position settled in the case, as a pro-woman warrior, Ms. Ghosh ignores the plight of married woman, Sita, who had left her home and then, in-laws, to accompany her husband in the difficult life of the Jungles and whose husband Miss Shoorpanakha, oh so poor demoness, threatens to acquire, putting her in the bracket of Right-wing women deserving no affection from her, termed derisively by her as Internet Hindoos.

The question remains whether it was moral for a woman to force herself on a married man while his wife watched in agony? But then socialism frees you from such scruples. The world-view of liberals is fairly simple- it is divided between Haves and Have-nots, and Haves deserve support, Have-nots pity. Sita,though a woman, like those under-age girls, fell in the latter category, deserving pity and not support. There are many men and women known more for communication than content jumped into the fray, attempting to prove that Shoorpanakha in the whole story was wronged woman. One should not be surprised that some day in JNU we have Padestrian Poet reciting on Shoorpanakha. Shoorpanakha was not a naïve woman, she was not an emancipated woman. She was an entitled woman who felt adultery is a way to emancipation. She was not a foolish or ignorant girl who did not know that Ram was married woman.
As the Sri Ram and Soorpanakha dialogue begins, Sri Ram introduces himself:


"इयं भार्या च वैदेही मम सीतेति विश्रुता "



This here is my wife, Daughter of Videha (Ascetic King Janaka) who is named as Sita.

Not the one to be deterred and sure of her superiority, Shoorpanakha doesn't think twice about trampling over the right of a married woman and responds.:


"विकृता च विरूपा च न चेयं सदृशी तव



अहमेवानुरूपा ते भार्या रूपेण पश्य माम्।"

Ugly and deformed, this woman is nothing like me, I am the beautiful (and entitled one) and better suited to be your wife.

Sri Ram again discourages her (Consider that this was the time when polygamy was much in Play, and Sri Ram was for the first time setting the rules for marital morality in human lives), says:


"कृतदारोस्मि भवति भार्येय दयिता मम

तद्विधानां तु नारीणां सुदु:खा ससपत्नता।"

What will you get by pursuing me? I am married and much in love with my wife and a life as second-wife will only bring sorrow to you."

Hearing this, the innocent love of Soorpanakha (who in between had also approached Lakshman to be second or temporary wife and was advised by  Lakshman not to waste time with him who was mere servant of Sri Ram and who in a jest, seeing that Soorpanakha's amorous adventures were driven neither by love of Ram or his, rather by her self-love and pride, says that she was so beautiful as compared to Sita, I repeat the rightful wife. Not a minute to be wasted for this woman on a mission to quickly seek love from one man or another, she turned back to Ram). Finally appreciating the situation that this woman needs to go for her to get Ram and understanding that in the deep forests of Dandakaranya there was no Hotel Leela around and she herself will need to take the important task of liberating Sita from the perils of this mortal life, she suggests, the sweet woman much loved by Sagarika and Sahelis, to eat up Sita, what is kind woman in love she is. Says Shoorpanakha:

अद्येमां भक्षयिष्यामि पश्यतस्तव मानुषीम्।
त्वया सह चरिष्यामि निस्सपत्ना यथासुखम्।।"

I will immediately devour this human-girl and we can live then, happily ever-after without  the stigma of being second-wife.



The Gandhian with Swords then attacks Sita,and patriarchal Rama pushes her away and asks Lakshman to punish her. Don't get Sagarika wrong, her plight is not for Soorpanakha; it is more for attacking Ram who represents people she hates the most. Those middle-class believers who she call Internet Hindus. As we see, Soorpanakha is not wronged women rather was an aggressor. Odd that they deify Soorpanakha and still take offence on Renuka Chowdhury being allegedly compared with her.

The laughter, the deriding laughter in the Parliament where tears and sorrows of the last man in the line, during the speech of elected Prime-minister is not the question of gender-equality, it is the question of cross-gender stupidity. It is not about class-fight, it is about a retort on crassness. We don't object to women's Right to be Free, we object to the insistence of some women about the right to be foolish. Ms. Chowdhury could have taken the podium, debated and brought the house down with laughter. But she chose to heckle the PM when latter held the podium. It is not the question of discrimination, as some are making it out to be. It is the question of decorum, decency and dignity in Democracy.

कांग्रेस संत समागम - Congress Sant Samagam

आज रात्रि जब प्रात:काल डिम्पल बाबा जागे, उनका हृदय नई ऊर्जा से प्रकाशमान था। कल ही काँग्रेस कार्यकारिणी ने उनकी तुलना किसी अचार से की थी और ध्वनिमत से सनातन धर्म का रक्षक बताया था। डिम्पल बाबा के बताया गया था कि अचार बनने के बाद हिंदू धर्म ध्वजा की रक्षा का दायित्व उन पर बैठता है। बाबा को खुद को पिकल कहा जाना पसंद तो नहीं आया था और वह जानना चाहते को अति उत्सुक थे कि ये हिंदू पिकल का इतना सम्मान क्यों करते हैं। हालाँकि डिम्पल बाबा के उत्साह का सबसे बड़ा कारण यह था कि ब्रह्मऋषि डिम्पल घोषित होने का बाद वह सामाजिक मर्यादाओं से इतर हो गए थे, और बक़ौल बाल ऋषि पूनावाला उन्हें भाँग गाँजा की निर्बाध व्यवस्था का अधिकार था। बालऋषि के अनुसार- राहुल जी इज जस्ट लाईक दैट डूड फ्राम माऊँटेन- शिव। सोच कर ही महर्षि डिम्पल के शरीर मे फुरेरियाँ उठी। नानी ने जब पवित्र वेटिकन के जल से ब्लेसित किया था तब उन्हें कहाँ भान होगा कि एक दिन उनका पौत्र हिंदू धर्म की दिशा तय करेगा। 
बहरहाल नव-नियुक्त ब्रह्मऋषि डिम्पल बाबा ने, घड़ी को देखा। बारह बज गए थे और प्रात: सूर्य वंदना का समय था। रोलेक्स राजर्षि को भी अब पहुँच…

लँगड का एमाराई

(Hindi Satire, inspired by immortal writing of late  Shri Shrilal Shukl and his legendary Novel- Rag Darbari)


लंगडवा एम आर आई करवाने का सोच रहा था। फिर सोचा पता नहीं मशीन कहाँ कहाँ से जुड़ी होगी।

खन्ना मास्टर लंगडवा के उहापोह को बड़े ध्यान से देख रहे थे। ग़रीब का कष्ट अमीर को सदा ही ध्यानाकर्षक लगता है। उसी में उसकी आत्मा का उद्धार और राजनीति का चमत्कार छुपा होता है। खन्ना मास्टर जवान और जोशीले थे। चमकीली वास्केट पहनते थे, और गंजहा की जगह ख़ुद को गंजावाला कहलाना पसंद करते थे।

गंजावाला अपना चश्मा लहराते बालों में धकेल कर, मनुहार के लहजे में बोले - “जाओ हो, काहे घबराते हो? कब तक वैद जी के पीछे घूमते रहेगे? क़स्बा क्लीनिक जा कर एमाराई करा लो।”

“हमको थोड़ा डर लग रहा है।”

लंगडवा गंजावाला के उत्साह से भयभीत हो गया। अमीर आदमी ग़रीब के सुख में अचानक रुचि लेने लगे तो अक्सर ग़रीब के लिए भय और भ्रम का कारण होता है। एक राजकुमार पहले उत्साहित हुए थे तो जवाँ मर्द कंबल और ट्राजिस्टर प्राप्त कर के लौटे थे। उसके बाद उनके घर कभी किलकारियाँ नही सुनाई पड़ी , बस मुफ़्त के रेडियो में बिनाका गीत माला सुनाई पड़ती…

Women in Vedas - The Fake Story of Sati Pratha

Biggest problem which Hinduism faces when it is being evaluated through the western prism of Abrahamic faith . I was watching a speech by Sadhguru where he mentioned a very critical defining feature of Hinduism. He says, unlike Western faiths, Hinduism did not place anyone at a pedestal where questions would not reach. Forget the Prophets and Masters, even Gods were received with affection and a list of questions. Nothing was ever beyond debate in Hinduism, not even Gods. This very nature of Hinduism has often been cause of concern and confusion for Western thinkers, troubled by a religion, which is seeped so deep into our culture of exploration of truth through investigation and examination. When the western scholars approach the Vedic Indian wisdom, oftentimes their approach itself is based on the assumption that they are approaching a civilization, a religion which is inferior to theirs. This makes it hard for them to accept a society which was an intellectually flourishing society…
