It is foretold! The torrential flow of inexorable destiny!


I am intending to conclude this commentary with one brief discussion about a very cantankerous campaign going on in England. It is mainly done by persons who had the fortune to live in native-English nations.

This has been the history of this subcontinent. Persons of miniscule personality and information go to England or some other native-English nation. From there, they act as if someone from the subcontinent had authorised them to act as the representatives or the agents or leaders of the people/s of the subcontinent.

They initiate campaigns, make declarations, deliver speeches, take part in discussions, meet the political leaders of those nations and do so many things like that in the foolish guise of the leaders of the people/s of the subcontinent.

When one lives in native-English nations, everything looks quite easy. These very persons, if they were to live in the subcontinent, would find it quite difficult to communicate across the social layers. It is not easy to even converse with a police constable or a government office peon for most people in India. The languages are so terrible that the government personnel can very easily degrade the common man using very soft words.

The wise guys who go to England and act as the leaders of the people cannot do one bit to change all this. In fact, they remain as the great stumbling block for the development of the people.

There was one Gandhi who is mentioned currently as the ‘father of the nation’. What kind of a ‘father of a nation’ is this, when there is no such definition anywhere in any of the statutory books, including the Constitution of India, about such a ‘father of the nation’? This man’s USP was asking the people to remain in their degrading dressing standards, and to address him as Aap, and as a Mahatma or a Ji. He remains an UNN (highest he/him), which the common man is a Thoo, and a USS (lowest he/him). Some bloody fools in England have even put up a statue of him next to that of Winston Churchill.

One should compare his common followers with the common people who followed the English systems. Then the stark difference would come out.

In fact, there was no great ‘freedom struggle’ in the subcontinent so to speak of. The Sepoy Mutiny was not a ‘freedom struggle’ by ‘Indians’. Only academic idiots would make such a discovery. In fact, even the people of Meerut did not support the actions of a reckless group of armed natives. A group of armed natives is a terror for the common people.

It was the rest of the people/s and the kings and other rulers of the subcontinent who rushed to the help of the English East India Company and crushed the hooligans.

What these hooligans did in Cawnpore can be read in The Story of Cawnpore by Capt. Mowbray Thomson. It might even be suspected that the Mutiny had the blessing of the British home government or the British Crown. For, it was the only legal opportunity to dismiss the East India Company government which had become statistically multiple times more powerful that Great Britain itself. However, since the Company was an English one, they did not go alone. Any other nationalities would have simply gone off alone.

Only around half of the subcontinent was under the English rule. The rest were independent kingdoms, who did not want to mention that they were not part of British-India, in England. For, it was a very cosy address to mention cunningly. However, even the earlier mentioned Gandhi was not from British-India. His father was the prime minister of Porbunder kingdom.

The creation of Pakistan and India was not due to any kind of freedom struggle anywhere. It was the foolish deed of the British Labour Party that killed the English Empire. It was the Labour Party’s political policy that when they come to power, they would kill the Empire. Those fools came to power in Britain in the immediate aftermath of the World War 2. They ditched everyone who had stood by Britain thick and thin.

The 3 million and odd native-soldiers of the subcontinent were betrayed. They were handed over to the Hindi-speaking native officers. In Hindi, the soldier, his wife and family are the Thoo people. The officers, the wives, and their families are the Aap people.

This is a very great defining element. The soldiers who had stood stolidly with the English officers were going to mutate into something of a low-grade variety.

The native-kingdoms who had supported the English rule suddenly found that they had nothing to hold on to. The British-Indian army which had been under commitment to protect them was now in the hands of politicians who had no qualms of using and misusing the armed forces as per their whims and wishes. Both Pakistan and India went on military intimidation campaign to overrun all the native-kingdoms. No referendums on the peoples’ wishes were taken into account.
