Rahul Gandhi needs Paris Hilton for tutorials in politics – l’affaire Milliband

The clue is in the body language

The clue is in the body language

Socialite Paris Hilton showed off her ignorance recently when she thought Gordon Ramsay was the British prime minister.

She said: “I love Britain. London is my favourite city in the world.” But when asked if she knew who the British prime minister was, she replied, “Yes, it’s Gordon Ramsay, isn’t it?” (via Paris Hilton thinks Gordon Ramsay, and not Brown, is British PM).

I think Rahul Gandhi needs to learn from Paris Hilton. After all, why waste time with Britain – a nation, 5 times over its GDP, in debt. A nation, that is a nobody in manufacturing, services, currency – a nation in terminal decline into anonymity?

Rahul Gandhi’s dalliance with Milliband reminded me of Nehru’s dalliance with the Mountbattens. I am still unclear who Nehru was having an affair with – Lord or Lady Mountbatten?

Nehru-Edwina-Louis Mountbatten - Ménage à trois

And I think, it was the reporters that got it all wrong. Why did this reporter think that Paris Hilton should know who the Prime Minister of Britain was?

    In the first picture above, you should make the word “language” plural. Poor Lord
    Mountbatten is just grinning and bearing while his high society wife rejoices with Nehru in ecstasy publicly, oblivious of the history. Indians are so much depleted spiritually in the words of Malcolm Muggeridge, this is the best example
    for any one to see. Could such an event pass unnoticed in any western country? I doubt. It will raise a hell. Bil Clinton’s trial is, anything if, a reminder to all those Macaulayiite coconuts. I can not emancipate with my sentiments that this “Ménage à trois”, so grotesquely obscene, has caused the irreparable damage to this country. Yet we have no choice. In fact I should say,”He with his proverbial dynastic rule is a source for the continuing damage. What a better slave nation could one pruduce? That is why, I always admire the British pejoratively. Because I have no choice.

    I had seen the first picture during my researches on this trio’s imbroglio but hadn’t seen the second one. I think, it is the young Pamela in the background beside her father! Their history of womanisation starts with Lord’s father himself. Another interesting thing I came across about Lord Mountbatten is that he was the mentor of Prince Charles too. The fiasco of Diana’s marriage is well known. Could it be the result of romantic tutoring. I suppose, this so called average promiscuity is an accepted general trend than a rarity or exception in the high societies. You can have innumerable counts like Victoria’s Abdul, Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s 20 wives and so on. But Nehru’s relationship is not just a curiosity but a crimanal act affecting the fate of the present day poor millions in India. That is what makes me wary and a point for discussion.

    1. In hindsight, the bigger issue was when Nehru decided that India’s tryst with destiny had to be in English language.

    2. With more than 60 years, India must now look at the next 60 years and start the cleaning our despoiled heritage.

    3. Our curious mix of complacency and a belief in the benign world is misplaced – and that needs correction.

    have you seen the bbc documentary partition:india burns.
    i am beginning to suspect one thing. always people are using.
    ” i saw a pregnant woman cut open and the dead baby inside her”. they used it in godhra riots. it was used in moplah(before independence) riots. it was used in descibing partition killings.
    looks like the british planned to descibe it that way long before the riots started.

    Why am I not surprised?

    The bus is missed for ever, at least in the near future.
