Against Anna Hazare – A proposition perpective to Lokpal & the movement.

In this media college that I’m a part of, you can’t miss the hot topics from around the world. And when the Hot topic is right where you live, a gallore of opinions, praises & disgusts is hard to escape.

Yes, this is the Hazare movement I speak about. I support the basic conceptual of this movement, but I beg to differ on the “Janlok pal bill” front.

It’s ambushing really, the extent to which people will go to support an idea, a niche concept without realising the powers that vest in there.

If it isn’t clear yet- I do not support Anna Hazare or the Lokpal bill (people’s or government’s).

Why?

The last time I checked, India was a democratic country. The muscle to put someone at the helm of power pyramid lies with the people by virtue of the voting system that on basis of our prudence, lets us elect the one WE deem fit for ruling, among the group of political parties contesting for the above said elections to form the Government. It’s US, the very same people of India that voted for the ones that we’re now protesting against. It’s like giving someone a pen & then accusing them of stealing it.

And it’s not just about “voting”. If you think that no party today deems fit for your vote, you always has the option to stand for the elections yourself!

Anna Hazare wants a body more powerful than the current Government to be established to keep a check on the Government officials as well, one that is not directly elected by the people. This body will not be elected by the people & the people will have no say in lieu of who comprises this Government. It consists of IAS officers, Padma Bhushana awardees & ironically Ramasaysay award winners among which Anna is one!

What is being subtly done is creating another level of Government, a powerful body that belittles the Elected  Government! Do we really need another form of Government that too with absolute power to condemn ANYONE? & who’s to say that the selected representatives would not dirty their hands in the same river? Power breeds corruption because it’s easy to abuse power when you have no opposition. We can nullify the power at the Centre by replacing them. But with an Authoritarian body that absolutely does not give common man any rights & faces no opposition, does it not invite Dictatorship? A quicker solution would be resignation of power to exercise voting to facilitate faster establishment of Dictatorship. I somehow can’t relate to the whole idea of changing the way Indian government runs and forming an autonomous committee of unelected officials who will have the power to take down a power. A power chosen by the people. No matter how corrupt the government is, it’s a decision made by the people and it will be highly unconstitutional to take that power away from people.

 

Next, who gives the guarantee that the members selected to encompass the body is incorruptible? Who’s to say that it wouldn’t monopolize & side with one party while condemning the other? Does anyone seriously think we can hire thousands of absolutely honest officials who will constitute the Lok Pal? Who will keep watch on them? Maybe we need a Super Lok Pal, and then a Hyper Lok Pal to watch over the Super Lok Pal and so on…This isn’t sarcasm, this is the logical extension of the Lok Pal argument.

 

Lokpal & communism swear by (read abide by) “Decentralization of power” which is ludicrous in a Democracy!

Also it condemns the Corrupt. Corruption feeds on the people who promulgate it. And we’re the same lot who pay off a Traffic Cop for talking on the phone & driving, concomitantly breaking 2 laws while the acceptance of bribe accounts for just one; who then howl slogans without realization of ourselves.

The Bill talks about moving the Judiciary against corruption at length. Let’s step into reality (& I swear I can bet a fortune on  this) – NO ONE has the time or patience to approach the court for some act of corruption what with the long tiring process of filing an appeal & elongated/dragged court dates. Honestly, you’re fucked in the head if you try to move the court, the same court that took 26 bloody years to convict Warren Anderson for a massacre so widespread, it still echoes in it’s victims.

The fast-unto-death lacks legitimacy. Of course we have the right to protest peacefully. But it’s not about whether we have the right or not. It’s about if we are using that right wisely. You have the freedom of speech but that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to blast Eminem using a loudspeaker at 2am in a residential district. Fast until death is political blackmail. It is a form of theatre engaged in to coerce the government into doing something that the agitators want. Whatever may be the cause, a single person cannot be allowed to dictate laws to the whole nation. Anna Hazare at some point WILL face Government opposition since it’s a form of suicide, against the already existing law.

Lastly, why not put to implementation the impending laws instead of putting another one in the line.

 

The movement should be on basis of common sense & not sentiments. Don’t get me wrong, I disparage corruption & am all for a corruption free India. Just not by the methods that Anna Hazare swears by.

The right to live.

Disclaimer : This article is violent and targets specific sectors of the Indian Society. This hasn’t been done to deride anyone or to contempt anything/organization. It’s merely expression of words. Also, please excuse the language since I wrote it when I was angry -__-
I’m sorry if I’ve hurt the sentiments of any religion. It wasn’t intentional. It’s solely to bring out the points. These are my beliefs, my ideologies.

It’s sick. It’s irking, abominable and animalizing. Getting up to another article on the newspaper about another girl child mutilated or aborted in the fetus has become like an everyday issue that marks India. It’s like a trademark that perpetually defines the being of India. And the worst part of the whole thing is the small little column it gets in the daily newspaper.
Female infanticide. Gendericide. Discrimination on basis of sex. Male domination. Patriarchy. The long pressing issues that’s come down to us (as a legacy I suppose) right from the ancient times of Sita, Draupadi and Yashoda to the 21st Century man. Killing of the girl child even before she could breathe in the real world, taking her life away from her even before she could begin one, muffling her screams forever even before she could cry.
Forget villages, it’s a cliche in the metropolitan towns now.

The life of a girl child is not just determined by the mother’s wellness. It is a movie directed by our unworthy proctors, our profligated gymnasts, the father of the unborn, the nefarious laws that exist and the family of the child. In India, we believe in “unity” to an extent that the entire universe around the girl child conspires to dig it’s grave, even before she could open her eyes.

People are so thick skinned in India, that they don’t bother with the fact that A LIFE, a LIVING thing has been killed. And we all watch the scene like bystanders. The people, the Government and the judiciary system – all are mere kibitzers. They watch the scene from distance as a mere entertainment, doing absolutely nothing about it. Every once in a while, they’ll pick up the microphone and propagandize the issue. Oh and that too right before elections.

Our judiciary system needs to incorporate wiser and open minded legal practitioners. Why is it so difficult for the jurisprudent to understand that an abortion is equivalent to murder? Should an 18 year old dumb it down for you? Why isn’t the sentence for abortion equivalent to the one for murder? 16 years? Is that all you sentence a person for killing a child?

Kasab came, devastated the city and is apparently enjoying meat in the jail. He killed Oh-So-Many number of people and he’s in jail for the crime. You know what? Maybe Karma *is* a bitch. What goes around will come around. Enough said.
So it’s okay to put Kasab in the jail for killing n number of people (read MATURE FULLY GROWN adults who’ve lived for so many years) but people who kill a fuckin’ fetus are allowed to get away because “it wasn’t a living thing/it wasn’t born/it hadn’t seen the world yet”? Because it was just a fucking embryo in the womb? So it’s alright to kill something that isn’t born yet?
I’ll tell you one thing. Next time, try doing this with the male child and I’ll believe this world’s a better place and that “sense” still exists.
So the judiciary system in India is a fail. Epic one at that. No one cares about a life in the womb. Gendericide is logically legal.

Doctors. Our worthy gynecologists. The final dealers of the fate of a new born. The senseless, implacable, truculent, pseudo “GODS” who bathe their hands with the blood of an aborted female fetus. The cruel cannibals who lend a helping hand to the murder of a girl child. They shouldn’t look for a corner to die. They should use the own fuckin injection that they used to kill the girl child with on themselves. Better yet, their sins will kill them of utter shame. Murderers. Why aren’t they condemned for ending a life again? They can very conveniently imprison Kasab for murder. WHAT IS THIS BUT MURDER? What are they doing but breeding “Kasabs” in the Medical colleges? And these low lives decide our fates? Oh and it’s not just limited to “male” gyaenacs. The female gyaenacs also dirty their hands in the same ebb.

Female infanticide is just another type of government killing whose victims may total MILLIONS! In many cultures, government permitted, if not encouraged, the killing of handicapped or female infants or otherwise unwanted children.
FACTS:
In the Greece the murder of female infants was so common that among 6,000 families living in Delphi, no more than 1% had two daughters.
Among 79 families, nearly as many had one child as two.
Among all there were only 28 daughters to 118 sons. Amazing right? (Homosexuality much Greece?)
But classical Greece was not unusual. In 84 societies spanning the Renaissance to our time, “defective” children have been killed in JUST a 1/3rd of them of them. The rest were gendercide.
In India, because of Hindu beliefs and the rigid caste system, young girls were murdered as a matter of course. When demographic statistics were first collected in the 19th Century, it was discovered that in “some villages, no girl babies were found at all; in a total of 30 others, there were 343 boys to 54 girls.
In Mumbai, the number of girls alive in 1834 was 603. A meagre 603 in a population of a billion men? Makes me think.
It isn’t a new age thing if you ask me. It’s been coming down from the Ramayana and Mahabharata ages. Ever noted how *most* of the Goddesses had a son? How the three main Hindu Gods are males?
Sita had two sons, Luv and Kush. Yashodha had two sons Krishna and Balrama. Parvati created Ganesha (male) out of clay. Kaushalya gave birth to the ever-glorious Rama. So Brahma is allowed to fuck up my fate, Shiva is allowed to decide when I die and Vishnu can destroy everything with a bat of his eyelids since the Earth supposedly rests on his whims. Will do. But by immortals who are gender-biased? And we say our Gods are “EQUAL”. “Saamdarshi”.
Now either they’ve lost their sense to distinguish between male and females or like the politicians, prosecutors, ill-faith families they chose to turn a blind eye towards this. The “patriarchal” system was started by the Sole “Creators” of our universe. Male protagonists are at the helm of the society. Even in heaven!!!
Saraswati, the Goddess of Wisdom was born out of Brahma’s “thoughts”. She wasn’t conceived.
Lakshmi is the Goddess of Wealth.
Random other Goddesses for cooking and every other useless stuff the 3 creators could find were assigned to the Woman. Why isn’t ONE of the 3 main Gods a female? Why isn’t Lakshmi the Goddess of Fate in place of Brahma?
The Hindu religion is a hypocritical one. And yes even though I’m a Kayastha, the “Brain” of the Hindu Caste, I DARED TO SAY THAT.
My beliefs matter to me much more than the pseudo UNEQUAL religion that I was born into.

They called Mary Magdalene a whore. She possessed Jesus’s child. So Jesus slept with a mistress?
They supposedly “hid” Mary Magdalene to ensure “safety” of the unborn because it could “change the history of religions as we know it”. The child was a girl. So Jesus was ashamed of his progeny?

Funny how the more educated a person is, the more ignorant he becomes. Someone had aptly said, “The more you learn, the lesser you know”.

The rich men of the 21st Century swim in the same pool of blood of the aborted female fetuses. Oh and they have the best *lame* excuses (Source : A survey website) “They would eventually have suffered from the hands of the ruthless men. So much molestation, no? And then they grow old and become teenagers and have boyfriends and friends who would take advantage of them. So it’s better to kill her at inception only”.
Saying so, they point out gutlessly to minor female rapes & the immorality that exists in today’s world.
Logically, their wives are whores? Since they are females too and “they suffer from the hands of ruthless men”. I wonder how many times their wives had been raped as kids? How many men they’ve insinuated with as teenagers. How many times they were pillaged during trips? So they’re sluts in all true sense, fulfilling all the required criteria according to the statements by their very own husbands.
So much molestation and immorality, no?
And what? The men who rape, who force abort are the fuckin GODS of charity and benevolence? These hypocrites worship themselves for “saving the girl from suffering” by aborting it? Seriously? Give this bullcrap to someone who actually is stupid enough to believe the shit!

I’m not being sexist. All I want to know is that WHY do men just stand there and watch an abortion? Why is the male child always so fukin “End-Of-The-World” important?

It has a wide array. The males are not just the ones under girding this. Many a times, the woman, the pregnant mother falls prey to the norms of the society (read the dowry system/the “males carry the family’s name forward”/male are the sole bread earners). They flow/swim with everyone else in the river of bullshit, insensibility and ignorance.
A female in Tamil Nadu, Lakshmi already had one daughter. So when she gave birth to a second girl, she killed her. For the three days of her second child’s short life, Lakshmi admits, she refused to nurse her. To silence the infant’s famished cries, the impoverished village woman squeezed the milky sap from an oleander shrub, mixed it with castor oil, and forced the poisonous potion down the newborn’s throat. The baby bled from the nose, then died soon afterward. Female neighbors buried her in a small hole near Lakshmi’s square thatched hut of sunbaked mud. They sympathized with Lakshmi, and in the same circumstances, some would probably have done what she did. For despite the risk of execution by hanging and about 16 months of a much-ballyhooed government scheme to assist families with daughters, in some hamlets of Tamil Nadu, murdering girls is still sometimes believed to be a wiser course than raising them. “A daughter is always liabilities. How can I bring up a second?” Lakshmi, 28, answered firmly when asked by a visitor how she could have taken her own child’s life eight years ago. “Instead of her suffering the way I do, I thought it was better to get rid of her.”
The girl child in India..does she have any right?

How ignorant are we! The society conveniently blames the woman for bearing a girl child, completely oblivious to the fact that it is the male sperm that determines the sex of the child.
I’m disgusted! I cannot fathom the mass illness plaguing in India. And the only solution I can think of, as punishment and as a deterrent is hanging these men/women/people to death. Or render them sterile. Both the parents! So that they *never* have a child hence. Forget a girl child.
Oh yes and I dare.. I DARE you pseudo-intellectuals and humanitarians to give me bullcrap about the inhumanity of this, India not believing in the eye-for-an-eye thingy. I DARE YOU.
So, I dissed and dissected the Gods of the largest religion in India, portrayed the Doctors in a bad frame, disembarked to trash the excuses of the rich families, slandered the Prosecutors of the Indian Judicial system, belittled the great knowledge of the pseudo intellects. Call me names, if it comforts you. I strive to be a shrew in a society that believes in suffering in silence. I’m effervescent and ebullient. I *will* come back with more inexorable words. This blog is merely a portion of my head and I will write what I want to. No, you can’t stop me. You can hate me all you want. I will keep throwing my words around till I suffocate you with some sense.

We must give the girl child her right to live, her right to breathe the air, to become something. To imprint her footsteps on earth.
A woman isn’t the meagre frangible Sita, the annihilated Lakshmi or the squelched Yashodha.
She is Durga with the man under her feet, taking the life out of him. She’s the Draupadi that kills in cold blood. She’s Kali – the one Shiva bowed down to. Killing of the girl child for any reason whatsoever will have VERY dire consequences. If she’s ethereal at one point, she can be your worst phantasma the next minute.
The girl child is Aditi, the sun goddess. She can burn the man, his creation and the entire universe down.
