Reality Bites: Hope is Eternal
We are aware that the Dear Leader frequently moans to his henchman Omit Sour that more people should be like him: Violate human rights and fight for the richest of the rich instead. He has an excellent track record – during the pandemic he worked very hard to raise his human piggy banks, Mr. A and the other Mr. A, into the ranks of the richest people in the world.
To ensure that Indian citizens reject activists like Sudha Bharadwaj who only fight for the miserable poor – a burden on the chessboard blah blah, the dear leader ordered his minions and scary media cronies to change the definition even activists. They did so nicely and now refer to Bajrang Dal and VHP’s henchmen as âactivistsâ.
In the spirit of the Dear Chief, the best activists are those who destroy mosques and churches, attack interfaith couples, vandalize schools run by missionaries, etc. I haven’t read his book âExam Warriorsâ (pronounced âEggjam Worriersâ) but I strongly suspect that it is about throwing stones and shouting threats outside of schools run by Indian minorities while that trembling students inside were taking important exams.
The third story is not about hope, but a reluctant admission of guilt. Former Indian Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi finally admitted he was wrong to be part of the tribunal that heard the sexual harassment case against him, but brushed it aside with an airy statement “We all make mistakes. “. He continues to be his usual cheeky one, and most Indians would be delighted if an “activist” put him in a “sealed envelope” and sent him to Mars.
