Why Do Indians Love Stone-Pelters So Much?

December 12, 2012 7 comments

Why do Indians ignore, even accept abuse and contempt from Brown Americans.

God! Save us from saviours!

There is a new breed of saviours who wish to save India – and Indians. These are the have-been immi-grunt NRIs. Mostly from Yummrika. Vastly different from the expat-NRI.

Reduced in status with the rise of India, these immi-grunt NRIs have become more shrill – and less than civilized. No longer in demand by Indians and irrelevant in US, these immi-grunt NRIs are scrapping for pieces in India and the USA.

Back Then

India has, by now, a 100-year tradition of giving consideration and respect to Indians who have studied, lived and travelled to the West.

In the past, these Indians, after their stint in the West, came back to India, to help India confront a rampaging West.

People like Gandhiji, Nehru, Jinnah.

Here and Now

What we have these days, are a different breed of Indians. These days they usually come to India for helping the West, to undermine India.

After years of discrimination and racism, they come back with a severe inferiority complex vis-à-vis the West (did someone say Jacintha Saldhana?). After such ‘warm’ treatment in the West, they compulsively feel superior to desi Indians. This contempt for desi Indians is not rooted in reality, neither sustainable nor valid.

Can I make it easier with an illustration?

See …

Let us see the case of Venkatraman Ramakrishnan – the Nobel prize winner in 2009 for chemistry. A churlish Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, complained volubly  about the number of congratulatory emails that desi Indians sent him, after he won the Nobel prize. Fortunately, some Indians did see this behaviour for what it is – a boor who has no character.

Poor Indians!! Trying to be proud of a person who is so ungracious! Wonder whether he would react the same way if his Non Indian Colleagues sent him congratulatory mails.Serves us right.This man does not want to be identified as a person of Indian Origin and we are trying to be part of the celebration. (Comment titled ungracious man by ZAFAR DAUD | 15-Oct-2009 in Indian Express.).

Soon after, this great scientist found himself facing discriminatory commercial behaviour in the UK. Having to enhance his credit standing, for an iPhone by making a deposit, ‘Venki’ Ramakrishnan came crying – to Indian media.

Drawing sustenance from the intellectual attitude by the likes of Amartya Sen, Jagdish Bhagwati, Meghnad Desai, journalists like Sadanand Dhume, these Brown Westerners are like the stone-pelters of Srinagar.

Caught many times for trying to keep their Indian passports, is it time that India de-recognizes all such Indian immi-grunts to the West?

Why not treat them just like any other citizen of any other country?

This probably is the start of complete loss of respect for immi-grunts.  |  Cartoon by Subhani on Monday, December 7, 2009; source & courtesy - subhanistrokes.blogspot.in

Making The Rules

For Indians of the Y2K generation, India does not always need to play by the rules.

Many times now, India makes the rules. Whether it is BCCI in cricket, or the India’s Nuclear Deal with the US, in many cases India negotiates from a position of parity.

In such a position, India accepts this stone-pelting – disguised as criticism, only by sufferance.

Mostly, Indians ignore this stone-pelting.

Which of course further infuriates these stone-pelters.

Heart of the Cesspool

A prime example of this newly emerging breed is a faculty at an American university – the University of California, Berkeley. Disappointed with India, immi-grunt to the US, it is more than surprising that his tweets and blogs are focussed on running down India – usually without quantitative data or facts.

Liberally using invective – like retard, idiot, dog, donkey, pig to browbeat disagreement or dissent.

Peee-pul, meet Atanu Dey, Champion Stone-Pelter.

It is popularly believed that Indians have freedom of expression, and to some extent they do. But slowly and surely, the government is tightening the screws. The Congress party is a past master of the game, having taken over the mantle from the British. The British had a good reason to do it: to keep the Indians under control. The Congress/UPA government also has the same reason to suppress expression that it finds unpalatable.

Will Indians wake up and smell the stench of government repression and censorship? I would not hold my breath. Indians don’t have the stomach for freedom of expression. As the saying goes in Hindi, कुत्ते को घी नहीं पचता है |

via Atanu Dey on India’s Development » Blog Archive » Government Censorship.

What more, as a 2ndlook reader discovered, such stone-pelters will brook no dissent. When a 2ndlook reader gave facts to the contrary, Stone-Pelter Atanu Dey did not publish the dissenting view or facts for the benefit of his readers.

We have seen earlier how shallow Stone-Pelter Atanu Dey can be – on the subject of education.

In response to Atanu Dey’s stone pelting, Tim Put, the 2ndlook reader wrote: –

USA the Citadel of Freedom has: –

1. The highest number of prisoners in the world. More than 2 million of them. No country in the world has as many prisoners. Another 5 million are under some correctional restrictions – parole or probation. Total correctional population in US is 7 million.

Unprecedented.

2. Nationmaster giving details of how many people are prosecuted in the USA gives some useful STATS.

http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_adu_pro-crime-adults-prosecuted

More than 2 million prosecutions each year to keep the prison pipeline fully utilized.

3. Atanu Dey with his full-time nit-picking of India (Doctor, Doctor, you think this is a case of compulsive-obsessive disorder), reveals a Freddie Mercury Syndrome. A man who hated himself so much that he hid everything about himself – and made up some story.

4. I wonder what is wrong with these Indians?

Can’t they see through this psood. Atanu. Are Indians such masochists, that they enjoy being flagellated by a charlatan like Atanu.

After his comments were not published, this 2ndlook reader brought it to my notice – in July 2012. I have not had the time to put this post up. Apologies to Tim Put for the delay.

Stone-Pelter Atanu Dey justified not putting up dissenting data as follows.

The post in question was about government censorship, and one person posted a comment that was abusive to me and far off the mark. It did not advance the discussion and I justifiably decided to ignore it. It began with an idiotic objection (that I had misspelled the URL of my blog — and therefore I did not know Hindi.[1]) Then it went off on a tangent. The writer later posted his comment to Rajesh Akkineni’s blog where it was published.

The guy posted a few more comments (not approved) to my blog claiming that I was censoring him. I absolutely did that. He feels that I have somehow violated his right to say whatever he wants to say on my blog. That is not so. I believe the freedom of expression is absolute[2] but that does not automatically confer any rights to anyone to say what they want on my blog.

Your freedom of expression does not confer a right on you to come into my living room and abuse me, nor does it impose a corresponding obligation on me to allow you to disturb the peace in my home with your rants. I will defend your freedom of speech but I will be damned if I let you violate my property rights. I will politely tell you to get the foxtrot off my property. Which is what I did by not approving that idiot’s (yes, he has to be an idiot if he has not figured out this simple truth) comment.

Stone-Pelter Dey claimed that Tim Put’s ‘comment that was abusive and far off the mark.’

Schiziod Browns

Unlike Stone-Pelter Atanu Dey, in all the commentary Tim did not call anyone a dog, pig, idiot, or use the ‘f’ word or the ‘b’ word. I could not isolate one instance of abuse by Tim – but Tim was plenty contemptuous of Pelter-Dey.

While Pelter-Dey seems to have reservations about readers challenging his silly commentary on India, Pelter-Dey thinks it is OK for an American (like himself) to walk into Indian drawing rooms and call them dogs.

Atanu seems to be not just ignorant – but also mixed up. In this case, New York Times (and most publications) allow dissenting opinions because of two reasons.

One – A many-sided debate is what is important. As a blogger, it is the simple logic that should have been apparent to this Stone-Pelter. But logic rarely cuts ice with Stone-Pelter Atanu Dey.

The Second – Reason why dissenting comments are usually published is etiquette. If everyone shut their ears, ears and lives to dissent, societies and nations would be reduced to rubble in no time.

Fact is bad ideas don’t live long – and good ideas don’t die easily. The British Raj died a quick death. India’s comeback is no less than stunning.

Stone-Pelters like Atanu Dey probably cannot digest that. Much like his White masters.

We did not get an agreement on 50% reductions in global emissions by 2050 or on 80% reductions by developed countries. Both were vetoed by China, despite the support of a coalition of developed and the vast majority of developing countries. Indeed, this is one of the straws in the wind for the future: the old order of developed versus developing has been replaced by more interesting alliances. (via The road from Copenhagen | Ed Miliband | Comment is free | The Guardian).

Old bulldog … old tricks

Gordon Brown, The British Prime Minister declared, “today, together with Norway and Australia, the UK is taking a further step to a Copenhagen agreement: publishing a framework for the long-term transfer of resources to meet the mitigation and adaptation needs of developing countries.” (Paris Hilton note, who the PM of Britain is!)

More interesting was when Europe went ahead and committed funds and disbursed carbon credits. Small amounts – but nevertheless a significant step! So, what gives! How come Europe was disbursing – not serious money, but more than pocket money, without using IMF, World Bank, et al. No UN! How come?

Anglo-Euro efforts

The joint trojan operation (Norway, Australia and UK + EU) against China (or was it India?) was immaculately pursued. Bernarditas de Castro Muller, former lead coordinator and negotiator for the G77 and China in Copenhagen, writing in the Guardian of UK, reported,

The UK financed workshops in selected vulnerable countries and deployed climate envoys. One of its envoys told intransigent negotiators that the UK would mobilise a group of vulnerable countries to pressure the major developing countries – such as China, Brazil and India – into committing to emissions reductions, contrary to their obligations under the climate treaty.

The EU for example made sustained attempts to influence and pressure developing nations – something that only served to increase their cohesion. They bribed where they could, promising the same recycled financing and maybe more to come if countries bent to their demands. And they bullied when they could not bribe.

India’s neighbours, like Maldives, Bangladesh were co-opted – as were countries, led people of Indian extract like Caribbean island of Guyana, Mauritius. The strategy was to isolate China and pair India with the ‘vulnerble 14’ – like Maldives, Guyana, Bangldesh, etc. For instance, alongwith Mohammed Nasheed, Bharrat Jagdeo in Guyana, was faultlessly pursued. Long ignored and isolated, countries like Guyana suddenly found themselves in the spotlight.

Agreeably surprised, they wondered how Guyana “received a disproportionate amount of coverage and access given its size for its progressive and leading stance on climate change.” Time magazine nominated Guyanese president Bharrat Jagdeo, as one of Heroes of the Environment 2008. This year Time magazine included Mohammed Nasheed in its Heroes of the Environment 2009. It was also announced,

Stabroek News in Guyana has confirmed that President Bharrat Jagdeo has been nominated for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to combat climate  change. He was nominated by Professor David Dabydeen, Director of the Centre for Caribbean Studies at the University of Warwick.

The Commonhealth Heads meeting a few weeks before Copenhagen was supposed to seal this ‘alliance.’ Intriguingly, the French President Sarkozy joined the Commonwealth Summit, with Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen and UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon – and proposed a US$10 billion fund for climate change. Just imagine the French joining in a Commonwealth meet (a first, I would think).

Possibly it was the US efforts which made China and India stand together at Copenhagen.

Why the US did not ratify the Kyoto Protocol?

The political undertones of climate control talks are unravelling. The first major smoke signal was when the USA refused to ratify the Kyoto Protocol – while talking about global warming and climate change at the same time. Sometimes puzzling and wholly beyond understanding! The lip service paid by the US to climate change can be best summarized by a Hindi idom हाथी के दांत, खाने के एक, दिखाने के एक. Meaning, elephants have two sets of teeth – one for actual use and another for show.

Cynical subversion of media, honours and public opinion

Cynical subversion of media, honours and public opinion

The third element in the multilateral equations set was the efforts made by Bush /Obama to get India and China to ‘get on the climate change band wagon’ with the US. The Chinese ‘unilateral’ announcement of ‘voluntary’ carbon intensity cut after Obama’s trip to China a few days before Copenhagen was a signpost of this unusual ‘alliance’. India followed soon thereafter with its own ‘voluntary’ carbon intensity cuts. One of the justifications of Bush’s nuclear deal with India was climate change.

This US master-stroke of Obama+BASIC meeting, ensured that the “only breakthrough was the political coup for China and India in concluding the anodyne communiqué with the United States behind closed doors, with Brazil and South Africa allowed in the room and Europe left to languish in the cold outside.”

In hindsight, US covert resistance to climate change was actually resistance to the monopolisation by the EU on the climate change agenda and campaign. Under the garb of climate change, EU was trying to do what US did to the world, under the garb of poverty elimination, population control, Bretton Woods in the aftermath of WW2.

What were the BASIC countries resisting

Writing from a Western standpoint, John Lee, in the Guardian, of the UK, faults China for not allowing,

“Teams of international economists, scientists, inspectors and statisticians roaming China to gather information on carbon emissions and reduction initiatives … reporting to political masters in America and Europe … (on) the further problem of cheating in current and future carbon reduction schemes.” (ellipsis and linking text in brackets mine).

The Climate Change Agreement would have delivered us - hog tied and helpless!

The Climate Change Agreement would have delivered us - hog tied and helpless!

Ed Milliband, Britain’s Energy Minister, younger brother of British foreign secretary, David Miliband, writing for the Guardian,

“We cannot again allow negotiations … to be hijacked in this way. We will need to have major reform of the UN body overseeing the negotiations and of the way the negotiations are conducted (for this) global campaign, co-ordinated by green NGOs, backed by business … we must keep this campaign going and build on it. It needs to be more of a genuinely global mobilisation, taking in all countries …this year has proved what can be done, as well as the scale of the challenge we face. (ellipsis and emphasis mine).

Indeed much has been done.

Face behind the mask

Faceless NGOs, without accountability to anyone, were able to bring global political leadership, to the very brink of an agreement. Like Milliband’s boss, Gordon Brown remarked, “the political will to secure the ambitious agreement … comprehensive and global agreement that is then converted to an internationally legally binding treaty in no more than six months.was very much there. The same 25,000 people (25 countries x 1000 powerful people) who rule over the G8-/OECD wanted the poor to invite these 25,000 to have undue and illegitimate oversight over our ‘poor’ lives – in the name of climate change.

The message I got ... loud and clear

The message I got ... loud and clear

To deliver more than 600 crore (6 billion) of humanity to an agreement that would have allowed the likes of the Milliband Brothers (and their NGO ‘partners-in-crime’) to pry into our lives, our affairs and dictate our very existence – with our own consent. Without recourse, with no checks and balances. With large amounts of unaccounted money at their disposal. To decide how we live our lives. Under a system, that would have re-invented colonialism, in a way wholly unknown to us earlier.

Any deal was a bad deal

Last time around, India was called the deal breaker at Doha. This time around, it is China. Who gets called, what by whom, may seems unimportant! But as my grandfather reminded me many times, बद हो जाओ, लेकिन बदनाम नहीं (Beware of getting a bad reputation).

The Guardian, goes onto say, “Only China is mentioned specifically in Miliband’s article but aides tonight made it clear that he included Sudan, Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Cuba, which also tried to resist a deal being signed.” Sadly India is not included in this list of ‘deniers’ who are, as Gordon Brown puts it, “anti-science and anti-change environmental Luddites who seek to stand in the way of progress.”

White House senior advisor David Axelrod told CNN that the Copenhagen Accord would allow US verification. “Now China and India have set goals. We are going to be able to review what they are doing. We are going to be able to challenge them if they do not meet those goals,” Axelrod said.

While this was probably intended to keep the enraged constituencies of US labour unions at bay, who had insisted that Barack Obama come back with a commitment from India and China for carbon cuts and their verification, these statements will only fuel a fire in countries like China and India. (via We can challenge India on Copenhagen goals: US – Global Warming – Environment – Home – The Times of India).

Like last time

This time around, based on similarly dubious research, India is being pressured to accept monitoring of climate change. Climate control and the Copenhagen meet is that fast growing octopus which is spreading out. It tentacles can be found in all kinds of places. One of its tentacles has reached India – which was any way the target. The Aspen Institute, India (AII).

Something doesn't add up ...
Something doesn’t add up …

To ’soften’ up India, the AII organized a gab-fest. Who could be a good candidate for a gathering of such worthies? At least, Nobel Prize winners. Rajendra Pachauri? Al Gore? Any better candidates. Yes.

Amartya Sen – who ‘graced’ this gab-fest, hosted by Aspen Institute, India (AII) – an ‘associate’ of Aspen Institute, USA. Amartya Sen is tenderizing up the media, the academia, to accept Copenhagen outcome – which is primarily International ‘monitoring’ of India’s climate control and administration. Does Amartya Sen raise any of these questions? For his efforts to weaken Indian position and interests, Amartya Sen will soon qualify as a unique category of Indian passport holder – Non-Resident, Non-Indian, holding an Indian passport.

The AII-Board of Trustees reads more like Who’s Who of Indian industry – Bajaj, Birla, Godrej, Thapar et al.

The carbon credits ‘opportunity’

The rich fat-cats are already licking the chops. Estimates have been put out that the ‘carbon-credits business s worth Rs.28,000 crores.

Interestingly, note one thing very carefully. No one, but none, is talking up about cleaning up on pollution. No industry is being asked to reduce their pollutants (think of inks, dyes and chemicals), manage by-products (sulphur from petroleum refining), eliminate contamination (paper plants), decrease waste (electronics), recycle (just imagine the number of mobile phone batteries).

Dada Amartya, you got a memory lapse! How come you  don’t talk about any of this?

Polluter cleans – not pay

One of the fundamental flaws of the Kyoto Protocol was the principal of ‘polluter pays’. Based on retributive justice logic, it was something that was bound to fail. Instead it should have been based on the Indic justice principle – ameliorative and make good. The operating principle should have been ‘polluter cleans and does not pollute again.’

Camels … in the kingdom of heaven

Copenhagen is for the rich (from poor countries), by the rich (from rich countries) to the rich (from poor and rich countries) – and may the poor and common be damned. And one thing you can be absolutely, completely, definitely, positively, wholly sure of.

The poor will never, ever, at all, in any manner, benefit from climate control.

India’s approach should have been to push for what it considered to be a “fairer, juster deal” on climate change that all parties can agree to — and if that means mandatory cuts, then so be it. “To say under no circumstances will we accept mandatory restraints is ridiculous,” he said. “Our position should be we will accept a just agreement, an agreement that creates a better world.” He said he was particularly disturbed at one point during the Copenhagen deliberations to see African and other developing nations side with China on the ramifications of an increase in global temperatures and to see India on the side of the U.S. and western Europe when “we have been traditionally the spokesman of the underdog.” (via Snapshots from the Aspen Institute India’s Conference in New Delhi – WSJ.com).

Inside Indian bedrooms

60years ago, an assault was made by foreign ‘observers’ into Indian bedrooms. Foreign ‘observers’

  1. Tied ‘development aid’ to India’s population control.
  2. Trained Indian ‘health workers’ to control India’s human reproductive behaviour.
  3. Paid for by Western Governments, soon after that, we had ‘health workers’ fanning out across the Indian country-side, conducting  vasectomies /tubectomies on India’s (especially poor) population.

It did not matter then, who the ‘observers’ were – foreign or Indian. Neither does it matter now. What matters is someone’s monitoring. And I don’t like that at all. Even if it done by a Brown.

Perverted logic

Perverted logic

Mirror, Mirror on the wall

Who is the most dubious of them all? And Carbon emissions is a very dubious subject. Sometime back, cows (read that as India) were targetted for carbon and methane emission. Will it be Indians and human beings next? Rhetorical you think?

Australia proves how this logic works. For Australians this has become a habit. They decided recently, in Australia to kill thirsty camels. Some time back, they were killing cane toads. Before that it was kangaroos. Before that it was dingos. And before that were humans.

Poverty and Famines: An Essay on … – Amartya Sen On Population Theory

Amartya Sen, Gandhiji, Food, Population and Greed

In a landmark study in famines, economic policy and food availability, (by) Amartya Sen says, “There has been a good deal of discussion recently about the prospect of food supply falling significantly behind the world population. There is, however, little empirical support for such a diagnosis of recent trends”.

Further, he goes onto say, “… famines can take place without a substantial (decline in) food availability decline is of interest mainly because of the hold that food availability approach has in the usual famine analysis…” (Italics and ellipsis mine).

Gandhiji had something to say – “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need, but not every man’s greed”.

The West in its greed wants to leave nothing for others – and this entire population theory has been invented so that the victim delivers himself on sacrificial altar of western greed.
