Now we know Gandhi was a fraud

October 10, 2019

By T.J.S. George

I have always felt patriotic and proud on Gandhi Jayanti days.  Not this time.  This time I was aware that Gandhi was a fake.  As usual, newspapers were full of Gandhi last week.  Schools and Colleges and associations of all kinds held functions to mark the 150th anniversary of the man they described as Father of the Nation.  I too had become used to that concept of the Father of the Nation.  Now I know better.

The person who opened my eyes to the reality of fatherhoods was none other than American President Donald Duck (DD).  In his loud, ranting no-nonsense style, he revealed the truth that his buddy Narendra Modi was the Father of India.  Gandhi stood exposed as an imposter.

Let no one underestimate the American President’s ability to see what others cannot.  The pedigree explains it all. The original DD was inspired by Australia’s cricket legend Donald Bradman.  During a US tour in 1932, Bradman was dismissed for a duck by the New York West Indians.  That gave Walt Disney Studios the inspiration to name a new character they were introducing.  Their good-guy character Mickey Mouse had become a bit jaded and they conceived their new Duck as a character with some negative traits such as short temper.  Was it in such a mood that the Father of India was discovered by the modern Donald?

Actually, the circumstances do not matter.  The important thing is that Gandhi has been unmasked.  Come to think of it, what did he do to deserve India’s fatherhood?  He spread a lot of nonsense, that’s what he did.  He said all religions teach the same truth.  How ridiculous!  He said the power of love should surpass the love of power.  What rubbish!  He said the earth provides enough to meet everyone’s need, but not everyone’s greed.  Balderdash, poppycock!

It is amazing that this half-naked Fakir could bamboozle so many people for so long.  Einstein and Romain Rolland, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King are the kind of brainy guys who fell for his tricks.  The world began honouring him by observing his birthday as the International Day of Non-violence.  Our Government, being wiser, celebrates the day as the Open Defecation-Free Day.  The Prime Minister actually declared the country open defecation-free.  He unveiled a map as proof.

That’s a genius idea. A map. Who can deny that ultimate reality? India has 1.8 million homeless people, half of them in urban areas.  Think of that word ‘homeless.’  It means no kitchen, no sleeping place, no toilet.  Where will they go when nature calls?  Our Prime Minister pointed to the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, a mission to provide toilets to all households.  But we are talking of people with NO household.  Where will they go?

They will go where generations of homeless people have gone — behind bushes, under trees, road sides, railway lines.  But when they go there these days, they will be taking the risk of disobeying a rigid, majoritarian government.  Worse, most of them will be poor and illiterate who won’t even know that they are taking a risk.  Like the two little slum boys in Shivpuri in Madhya Pradesh.  They were seized red-handed by local patriots and battered to death. Just like that. It happened the day our Prime Minister received Bill Gates’ Goalkeeper Award in New York for providing toilets to toiletless households.

Brilliant goalkeeping.

Irony rules the world.  In the name of progress, our rulers resort to high-handedness and build up nationalist frenzy to serve their purpose.  The ultra patriots have condemned Jawaharlal Nehru as anti-Indian.  Gandhi is on their hit list. But the public adoration he commands makes them cautious.  Their strategy seems to be to appear pro-Gandhi but confine him to the Swachh Bharat corner with his spectacle frame as its logo.  From a corner, it will be easier to push him into oblivion.

Some ultra patriots, too impatient to wait, have already knocked him down. Haryana Minister Anil Vij replaced Gandhi portraits with Modi portraits in calendars and diaries, then said that Gandhi’s picture in currency notes led to the devaluation of the rupee.  “Modi is a better brand,” he said.  Our Prime Minister enjoys such open acknowledgement of his grandeur as the Houston mega spectacle showed.  And he has helpers who can turn day into night to keep him flattered. Remember how Amit Shah turned Kerala’s Onam into a Brahminical Vamana Jayanti?  Being wise, let me get on the survivalist bandwagon early.  Down with Father of the Nation. Up with Father of India.

    Nobody can say Gandhi was a fraud! But He got conned by the British and Nehru as Brits did not want to give total independence to Real Indians . NEHRU WAS tgeir convenient choice as he wanted power at any cost including the nation! Also, he was eyeing for a bigger image than Mahathma Gandhi! So, he started bending backwoods to please China, Pakistan, UN without even consulting his own party members
    Today, his progenee Rahul and his family keeps meeting Chinese and Pakis , which is nothing but Nehru genes ! They are taking the name of Gandhi and destroying the image ! Also, all corrupt people have a safe harbor with Congress party as they feel safe that tgey will be protected! You can see the symptoms when you try to investigate any crook from Malya to D.k.shi, they cry that democracy is in danger! Because as per them, democracy is the right to loot without any consequence!

    On a serious note, I still don’t understand why these so called minorities behave so low. Even after so many years of independence and living here in India since generations have no respect for India and her leaders. And these people, as long as they are minority, expect the democracy to win. But the moment they become majority, they expect other religion people to follow them, what a hypocrisy!
    Whoever wrote this article, I can only feel his hatred towards Modi, nothing more than that.

    Sarcasm at its best!!

    Very Well written. However, some of the comments from narrow- minded zealots have a way of converting every conversation into religion centric, by focusing on the religion of the writer than the subject and content of what is written. One Mahatma’s leadership pulled their father, grandfather, out of bondage the result of which has given the freedom to express to these people. Maybe they prefer bondage and restrictions of all sorts which is why they are supporting the regime that wants to jail people just for writing a letter to their supreme leader.
