India up for sale to MNCs


The Wall Street Journal type-casting Indians!
A nervous Wall Street Journal type-casting Indians!

The recent historic moratorium on Bt brinjal by Jairam Ramesh, minister of environment and forests, has created a network of citizens’ organisations around the country that have risen spontaneously from the ground, and have prevented the country’s agriculture becoming devoid of its diversity and moving in the direction of control by multinational corporations MNCs. (via India up for sale to MNCs).

Grass roots and spontaneous

A 'divided' India has stuck together for more than 60 years - more than any country in the world.

This post makes an excellent point of how Indians ‘divided’ by caste, religion, language, colour made Jairam Ramesh change his mind – and stop Bt Brinjal. And these same ‘divided’, docile, non-violent, supine, Indians, mounted nearly a 100 wars against the British during the 1800-1900 period.

Having met PM Bharagava a lo-o-ong time ago, (my) impressions were exactly opposite of what he is writing in this post now.

An excellent post for many reasons, about the many possibilities that India can wake up to tomorrow – and lies asleep. The one dark cloud, is PMB’s great reliance on the State to take action.

The Great Brown Indian State

PMB – Please! But, puh-leeze, the State will simply take our money, our efforts, our ideas – and finally, our freedom!

It makes little difference, if the colour of the rulers is Brown, Green, Red, Yellow, Black, Blue or White! The Brown Indian State, while better than the White Indian State, is still a bad idea!

It is the Brown Indian State that we must now work on! The nearly 2(0) million Indian who lost their lives fighting the White Indian State did not die to replace the White Indian State with a Brown Indian State.
