india loves bush

india loves bush! it is official. the prime minister says so!!

i was one of those who believed that our MMS was a very clever man. perhaps he is. but the very intelligent do not look at the wider perspective. they are experts in their own little corner. they know almost everything about a certain something but almost nothing about the other things around.  economics, globalisation, re-colonisation…these are certainly high on MMS’ agenda. people? who cares? after all these silly masses that never even voted for him are not worht wasting time. so when MMS talks of india, he talks of the india that he discovered.

MMS too like his very early predecessor, discovered india. he has learnt that he need not answer the people. he has found out that there are lots of guys and lots of money  to get things done, and therefore the common man’s opinion can be junked. he knows his new indian maths- 123. he has discovered that india needs more nuke than food. he has discovered that india is actually the elite. he has discovered that india is  made up of the rich and those who just want to become rich. he has discovered that india wants to be america! with so many discoveries to his credit, should not the scientist (albeit economic)  be pardoned for the one mistaken discovery? after all when he said india loves Bush, perhaps he meant he loves Bush, and the corollary is he is india!

i know many indians who ape americana. they eat pizza and drink coke, with enormous discomfort stuff burgers, support pseudo causes…. all because americans are supposed to be doing these things. they constitute MMS’ india. they are his concern. his kinship and identification with them is blatant. his policies and programs are for their upliftment. but now alas, the mighty MMS is going to be criticised by these fellows, `his’ indians, for making a simple statement.

if america aping indians are `the’ indians that MMS thinks about, well things are going to be tricky. aping america cannot mean loving Bush. B is not a lovable thing in the `great’ USA. it is very un-american to love B. so what happens? are the `neo’ indians going to feel uncomfortbale if not angry that MMS is alienating them from americans? no way! they will not talk about it. they know what they want. they will go about getting what they want.  they care not about modi and nanavati, they have not even bothered to glance at tehelka. they have their own agenda, just as how their `beloved’ MMS has his own! each one to his own in this dog-eating-dog days of modernisation.

whether india loves B is not a matter fo concern to these `indians’. they love themselves. they are the indians of this prime minister. perhaps they love B! after all they have no concern and therefore little knowledge about political,social and national problems that plague this country. this is just their address- temporarily till they start fingering the papers that say ‘in god we trust’, even if they dont love that god.may be they love B. it is possible, for they would know very little about the american mind except their silly concept that americans live well.

so… india loves what MMS loves. all silly, shameless souls like me can take recourse to impotently whine on blogs, while the game continues.

  1. If Sara Palin becomes VP of US, indians will like her too… 😉

    And let me confess it, if only good looks are concerned, i find no reason why sara palin is hated…be it US, be it India, a pretty face has to struggle a lot in some cases..people tend to think that women have a good looking face have got less thinking brains then average..thats not right.. 😀

    Imagine what will happen if the pervert Zardari proposes to Palin??? It will further strenthen US pakistan tie ups…!!!

    harshad joshi…is this what we are going to be concerned about? MMS will be proven right by these reactions.

  3. abhinav Says:

    MMS seems to be nothing different than his political ancestors,

    One thing i will never be able to understand is that mr. MMS indirectly elected by the people of India doesn’t have the Right to represent India , if he does say somethings like” people of India love you” to that Bush character, I think we should give the guy at least that liberty, after all he is a product of our own system.

    Democracy unfortunately gives us the right to chose the better ideology, hence the person who best represents us, not the person who best represents ME.

    One more thing i would like to say is drinking coke is not aping american, if you have been brought up with it. If it is then the use of PC or Windows or most of the things we perceive to be “normal Indian” is APING AMERICA.

  4. abhinav Says:

    I agree to u in principle though. But i quite don’t get what we think generally, i mean i meet so many people each day, with so much difference of opinion that i get confused about the definition of a common Indian .

    anyways i am inspired, this is the an article i had written a while ago, see if you can find some similarities

  5. rudhran Says:

    aping america is not using modern technology. it is like this- if you love the taste of coke drink a gallon everyday, but if that is your style based on an american dream it becomes silly and cheap

  6. abhinav Says:

    Precisely, the very term “modern technology” is most often used for Western technology, very much aped by us due to the COMFORT AND LUXURY IT GIVES US to THINK FREELY, we who are proud to have our own way of thinking atleast should acknowledge that it was by dreaming of the American prosperity we have come till here.

    AMERICAN DREAM , coined by James Truslow Adams, is that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement.

    Thats not a bad dream to follow, even in the stylistic of terms , Frankly all of us have a sense of style which is NOT RATIONALLY EXPLAINED.

    The very word CHEAP we use seems to be derived from an American based MARKETING point of VIEW stating cheap(NON COSTLY) things are bad.

    WE APINGLY USE the word CHEAP, as if we are evaluating judgment.

  7. rudhran Says:

    well it makes it all interesting. aping is not american dear man, it is an ancient perhaps african way of trying to mimic the immediate ancestor. cheap may mean less costly for the american or a pseudo-american but it also means disgusting. and then, you are right about my mistake in saying an american dream- i meant a `going to america dream’ nurtured by cheap people who are like the central character in the movie ‘coming to america’

  8. வணக்கம் ருத்ரன் சார்,

    ஆரம்ப கால சன் டிவி நிகழ்ச்சிகள்ல எனக்கு பிடிச்ச நிகழ்ச்சிகள்ள ஒன்னு உங்களுடைய நிகழ்ச்சி. அப்போ எனக்கு 13 அல்லது 14 வயசு இருக்கும். வளர வளர உங்க குருநாதர் மாத்ருபூதம் சாருக்கு ரசிகனாயிட்டேன் (அவர் நடிச்ச சினிமா காட்சிகளப் பாத்து தான் சார். நீங்க வேற எதாவது நெனைச்சுக்காதிங்க. பொதுவா பல பேரு என்னப் பத்தி அப்படி தான் நெனைக்கிறாங்க. ஏன்னா என் ராசி அப்படி).

    தமிழ்ல டைப் பண்ண முடியலைன்னு பல பின்னூட்டங்கள்ல நீங்க வருத்தப்படுறதப் பாத்தா எனக்கு வருத்தமா இருக்கு சார். தமிழ்ல டைப் பன்றது ஒன்னும் பெரிய விஷயம் இல்லை. உங்க கம்ப்யூட்டர்ல லதா (Latha) இல்லாட்டி ஏரியல் யுனிகோடு எம்.எஸ் (Arial Unicode MS) ஃபாண்ட் இருக்கான்னு பாருங்க. இல்லைன்னா எனக்கு ஒரு மின்னஞ்சல் அனுப்புங்க ( என்னிடம் லதா எழுத்துரு இருக்கு. அத அனுப்பி வைக்கிறேன். கீழே இருக்கற லிங்க்கை அழுத்தி அங்க இருக்கற NHM Writer சாப்ட்வேர உங்க கணிணியில இன்ஸ்டால் பண்ணுங்க. அதுக்குப் பிறகு எப்போ எல்லாம் தமிழ்ல டைப் பண்ணனுமோ அப்போ எல்லாம் அந்த அப்ளிகேஷன ஓப்பன் பண்ணிக்குங்க. இந்த சாஃப்ட்வேர்ல தமிழ் வார்த்தைகள ஆங்கிலத்துலயே டைப் பண்ணலாம். இடைல இடைல இங்கிலீஷ் வார்த்தைகள டைப் பண்றதுக்கு ஆல்ட்+2 (alt+2) பட்டண்கள அழுத்தினா மொழிகள் தானாவே மாறிக்கும். இது பழகிட்டா ரொம்ப எளிமையா இருக்கும்.

    நீங்க தமிழ்ல எழுதுற பதிவுகள படிக்கனும்னு ரொம்ப விரும்புறேன். சீக்கிரம் எழுதுங்க சார். முக்கியமா உளநலம் சம்பந்தமா ஒரு கேள்வி பதில் பகுதி எழுதினா ரொம்ப நல்லா இருக்கும். அதுவும் கூட சூழ்நிலைகளுக்கு சிக்கல்களுக்கு தீர்வு சொல்ற மாதிரி இருந்தா போதும். அதிலயும் கூட “எனக்கு திடீர் திடீர்னு கோவம் வந்து கைல கெடைக்கிறத எல்லாம் எடுத்து அடிக்கிறேன், சட்டையக் கிழிச்சுக்குறேன், நான் என்ன மருந்து சாப்பிடனும்னு சொல்லுங்க”ன்னு கேட்டு வற்ற கேள்விகள ஈவு இரக்கமில்லாம நிராகரிக்ச்சுருங்க. ஏன்னா உங்களுடைய நேரம் பதிவு எழுதுறதுல மட்டும் வீணாகிடக் கூடாது.

    நன்றி சார்.

    (இந்தப் பின்னுட்டம் நீங்க படிக்க மட்டும். இதை பதிப்பிக்க வேண்டாம்)

    an excellent post!

    MMS is not responsive to the average Indians and he always tries to reflect the needs of Rich India.
    It always makes me to think, he is an un-elected PM ruling the World’s largest democracy? what are we people doing?, none seems to be bothered about this crucial fact.. Media and Corporates projects that he is very clean. Would it be better if he is an elected Member?
