THE BUFFOON OF THE QUEEN

Amrita Rai should be careful as #DigVijaySingh has only one Queen

In ancient times in France, many kings and queens had their buffoons – usually dwarves- who would make them laugh by their antics, extravagance and eccentricities. These buffoons would also act as “unofficial” spokespersons of their masters, often mimicking what they thought would please them.

India has a Queen of course, and she has her own a buffoon, in the person of Digvijay Singh. Buffoons have no dignity – otherwise they cannot function. Mr Singh, once a respected CM of Madhya Pradesh, shredded his self respect, to please his Queen and climb back the hierarchy of the Congress, at the cost of common sense and human decency.

Actually, few people know that Digvijay Singh was already known for controversies. In 2002, income tax raids on a liquor manufacturer in Bhopal, yielded a diary maintained by the distillery’s owners, which listed, among others, the name of the ex Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister as one of the recipients of Rs 100 million. In 2004, the Special Police Establishment of the Madhya Pradesh Lok Ayukta registered an FIR against Mr. Singh, his close friend Subhash Gupta, the Indore Collector, M. Suleiman, the Competent Authority (Urban Land Ceiling), R.K. Gupta and the Principal Secretary, Revenue, Satyanand Mishra, under Sections 13(1) and 13(2) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, along with criminal conspiracy. In 2009, The Madhya Pradesh Bureau of Investigation for Economic Offences also registered a First Information Report (FIR) against 12 persons including the former State Chief Minister for allegedly deriving undue benefits from the promotion of Treasure Island, a swanky Mall near Indore.

Mr Singh’s affinities are also most peculiar: he once addressed Osama bin Laden as ‘Osamaji’, praises Zakir Naik’s, one of the most rabid Muslim preachers in India, whose entry has been banned in the UK and Canada, but who seems to have a free hand here to insult Hindu spiritual leaders and Hindu scriptures. Naik is infamous for a video clip that circulated on the Internet in which he says, “If he (Osama bin Laden) is fighting the enemies of Islam, I am for him. If he is terrorizing the terrorists, if he is terrorizing America the terrorist, the biggest terrorist, I am with him. Every Muslim should be a terrorist.”

Indeed, Digvijay Singh bats for terrorists. He is notorious for saying that the Batla House shootout, which took place in a Muslim-dominated area of south Delhi in 2008, “might have been staged”. He also visited the family of Batla House encounter accused Mohammad Saif who had been arrested. Even the Congress tried to disassociate itself from Singh’s statements made in Azamgarh on the Batla encounter, in which Inspector Mohan Sharma was killed and awarded the Ashok Chakra posthumously.

Digvijay has as well a soft corner for the corrupt: ” Undertrials are unnecessarily being denied bail,” he twitted when a court dismissed bail pleas of Kanimozhi and other 2G accused, despite the CBI not objecting to the bail pleas of the DMK MP and four others.

But the worst thing he has done to himself and his own karma, is to attack Hindu Gurus and Hindu social leaders, thinking it will please his Christian Queen. He started with Swami Ramdev, whom he accused “of using his mass-yoga sessions to make crores”, then continued with Anna Hazare, this beacon of a man, claiming “that Baba Ramdev is more honest than Anna Hazare over the controversy of their RSS and BJP link”. Later he went after Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, one of the most soft spoken spiritual leaders, respected by millions of disciples, not only in India, but all over the world. Mr Digvijay’s Singh’s trick is to link everybody he wants to denigrate with the RSS, as some of his tweets demonstrate: “Baba Ramdev. Crashed. Plan B- Anna. ? Plan C – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar soon to start his campaign” . He could associate them with a fundamentalist Muslim outfit, such as the Laskhar-e-Taiba, which has killed thousands of innocent people in the name of One God. But no, he prefers to relate them to a harmless outfit of old faddy-daddies in khaki shorts.

The irony is that Sri Sri has been fighting corruption for many many years, long before it became politically correct. Most of his swamis, close disciples and his yuvacharyas are voluntary workers who toil tirelessly in many of India’s poor villages. Guruji, as he is fondly called, has been making people take pledges against corruption for years and he has been encouraging people to vote for the last six months, holding satsangs in various parts of the country in which he urged people to take an anti-corruption pledge.

Digvijay Singh has probably no strong opinions. In fact he often contradicts himself: “I hold Sri Ravi Shankarji in high esteem and have done a course in the Art of Living as CM MP in 2001”, he twitted. But the need to please his Queen is stronger and like all true buffoons, he will go to any length, even at the cost of his own credibility.

Yet, buffoons tend to fade into anonymity sooner than later. Not many of us remember what happened to another buffoon, Raj Narain, who in the eighties bullied quite a few with his antics (he once campaigned in a monkey’s cage). . In ancient France, it was not always fun to be a buffoon, for when the King of Queen were displeased, or fed up with the buffoon, or if it had outlived its usefulness, they would kick the buffoon, and banish him.

NOSTRADAMUS AND 2014 ELECTIONS

Michel de Nostredame, one of the world’s most famous authors of prophecies, was born in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in the south of France in December 1503. His family was originally Jewish, but had converted to Catholicism during the previous century. Nothing is known about his childhood, but at the age of fifteen he entered the University of Avignon to study for his baccalaureate. After little more than a year he was forced by the Plague to leave again. In 1529, after some years as an apothecary, he entered the University of Montpellier to study for a doctorate in medicine, and created a “rose pill” that was widely believed to protect against the plague. He is most famous for his book “Les Propheties”, which consists of rhymed quatrains (4-line poems) grouped into sets of 100, called Centuries. Nostradamus is credited with predicting the French Revolution, the atom bomb, the rise of Adolf Hitler and the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Recently, French scholar Bamprelle de la Rochefoucault uncovered in an old trunk which had been sold for two francs in 1876 to an antics dealer of Bordeaux, a document written in Latin which he has attributed to Nostradamus. Curiously, there are two full pages, which deal at length with India, particularly with the Bharatiya Janata Party and the forthcoming general elections.

We are giving here the first words in Latin, along with a rough translation in English.

Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus veni grandus est vingtus unus centurus – Congressus oublium est …”
The Bharatiya Janata Party will come to dominate India in the 21st century, as the Congress, will slowly sink.
“Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus veni grandus est para Indus cognisant Indica tum est… ” The BJP will represent the aspirations of the Hindus, the overwhelming majority of India.

He goes on to explain who are the Hindus: “Indus terrum nostrum grandus homo manus onum unus familium planetum est. Indicus pax pacis terra est ferrum tempus…” They will be the most tolerant people, even in the Age of Iron, because they will still accept that God may manifest Himself at different times under different names, using different scriptures. Hence all persecuted people throughout the ages, will always found refuge in India, where they will practice their religion in peace.

Then Nostradamus makes his first prediction: “Indus cursum est trahisum nostrum est… Politicum Bharatus Indicus trahisum est…” But the curse of the Hindus will always be disunity and they will betray each other to the enemy again and again.

Next, another prophecy: “Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus tri pillarus est, Vajpayum, Advanum persistum est et Narendrum Modum. Vajpayum emergum est…” The BJP will have three pillars: AB Vajpayee, LK Advani and Narendra Modi. Eventually, Vajpayee will no longer have an active life, Advani will persist and Narendra Modi will be emerging.

He goes on: Narendrum Modum supremus chefum, ironus manus est et economicum grandum est…” Narendra Modi will raise himself as a national figure, not only because he is an iron man, but also because he has made of his state a model of economic efficiency.

Then comes another forecast,: “Duo millenum novo treizus, Jesus Christum postum, Advanum racontum narrates est Narendrum Modum grandus princeps est et Modum dux ducis rector est, sixtum legatus est…” Mr Advani will oppose Narendra Modi as BJP’s, Prime Ministerial candidate, but still the BJP will win the elections.

Nostradamus is not done, but thezre he may have got it wrong: “Congressus, corruptianum est,duo millennium terzus tombum est”. “The Congress Government will be riddled with so many corruption scandals, that it may fall before 2014”

And, he goes on: “Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus prnonuncio Ramum templum et Christanium consto est et gurum defendo est, kashmirum macto est…” The BJP will also make it known that it will build the Ram Mandir, protect temples, stop conversions and keep Kashmir for India.

Michel has also some forecast about foreign policy: “Chinum pugna est, Tibetum sanctum est, proctectiorum, amen ; pakistanus attakum est et ereptor latrunculus iugolo, caido.”
The BJP will reaffirm its commitment to eastern states (he probably meant Arunachal Pradesh), stand-up to China’s bullying, and support Tibet to counteract Beijing which is propping-up Maoist Nepal. It will swiftly punish Pakistan next time it attacks India by proxy.

However, added Senor Nostradamus: “Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus comes, comitus amicus desertus est congressus victis .” Only if the BJP stands true to the aspirations of its Hindu voters, it can come on its own at the Center.

Why? “Independantum Blancum copium est; necessarus changum indianus cumum facus est”… As India has heavily borrowed from the White Man (British?) at Independence, it will become necessary to “Indianise” the nation so that it may manifest again its true unique soul.

What is it? “Lex legis mutation, presidentum auctorita dato est, confuto desisto lex legis…” Introduce a common civil code, repeal false laws (article 370?), reform the Judiciary, change to a Parliamentary system, which will give true powers to the President who can nominate a Prime Minister from the majority.

Nostradamus goes on to explain why these changes are important: “Congressus niveus domina regnus, Indicus forcus inmicus est. Maurus, Christianus presentum est.” Under the reign of the White lady (Sonia Gandhi?) forces inimical to India have crept in. Madrasas have sprung up everywhere and so have churches that are converting by the thousands, Hindus gurus are jailed and mocked at…

Finally, Nostradamus has these concluding words: “Lentamentus, Indica Indus solvo eripio licens et quidnam et politus falsus, Dharmus popularus est. Srious Ravous Shankarous pranayamous, et novus spiritualitus ex religus planetum estblishum est”.
What was non-acceptable today will become politically correct tomorrow and Hindus will rule themselves again and reestablish Dharma in India.
“Scienta, garnutas, conscienta va do incedo totus el mundus rulus est, paxus, harmonius est.”
And the knowledge which was preserved in India for millenniums will spread in the world and bring peace, happiness and Harmony to All”.
