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.

    You are the biggest fraud of all times shame on Star of Mysore for publishing your trash

  2. Giri Gowda says:

    Every person who comes with a so called minority tag hates Modi no matter how much real secular he is and works for the country 24/7..!!

  3. DR.M.SHANTHAKUMAR says:

    i agree with you

    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!

  5. Mohana says:

    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.

  6. M A Khan says:

    Sarcasm at its best!!

  7. Vikram Das says:

    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.

  8. strangeworld says:

    This article is a satire and the author has achieved this well, Posters have failed to understand this,and hence their meaningless outbursts. As for Modi, one would like to ask what his accomplishments are? Forget about Rahul Gandhi,his mother and his crowd, as they are irrelevant now.

  9. Peter says:

    You think Rahul and his mother are irrelevant! You don’t know what Modi Achieved even after 5 years of his rule! Do you really know anything about India? Modi is the most loved or hated PM in the history of India depending on which side of the fence you live! If you live in Vadra DKshi Jnu Chidu side of the fence you should be on the haters side who is screaming intolerance! On the other side where all the people who voted Modi for the second term they are the prople who have a trust in Modi! If you don’t even know this much such dumb assholes must not be commenting here pretending to be an authority of everything going on

  10. Raj says:

    Gandhi was a pure idealist and not a fraud! But he was naive! He left the nation in the hands of hawkish opportunistic scoundrels ignoring the genuine nationalistic leaders! Since the day of independence, Gandhi has been the most exploited word! The next 2 words are constitution and freedom! For 6 decades every criminal wants to use freedom as an excuse for hiding crime. Corruption and terrorism!Mysteriously these terms never help the real victim! While we want to protect the rights of Afzal guru and his freedom, Hindus killed in Kerala or West Bengal don’t get any justice! Nor the 8500 Sikhs killed in riots under Rajiv Gandhi’s rule’! Nor the millions of Kasmiri Pandits massacred by terrorists because The victims were the children of lesser god! Just to remind George, these people to had the constitutional right to live! George never raised a voice! Why? Because that doesn’t sound liberal!
    But, JNU, George and alike wants to portray Hindus as intolerant lynchers! But when they are the victims, they observe silence or even spin the truth!

  11. Strangeworld says:

    @Peter or whatever the name you take. Lat time it was L Elemanava! You are a cretin who is prone to using a language that does not benefit a civilsed person.. Typical deluded and ignorant Indian. No use to engage with you: a fowl-mouthed twerp

  12. Strangeworld says:

    @Peter or whatever the name you take. Last time it was Elemanava! You are a cretin who is prone to using a language that does not benefit a civilsed person.. Typical deluded and ignorant Indian. No use to engage with you: a fowl-mouthed twerp

  13. Strangeworld says:

    Correction: ” foul-mouth”, although this fool @Peter sounds like a fowl which has a small brain!

  14. manava says:

    @strangeworld & @Peter
    Now , one called the other foul mouth and the other an Asshole! We all can see that you are very true in assessment of each other and deserve each other! Now both of you stop commenting and dirtying the public forum and please shut up! That is the least expected from normal people

  15. Prasanna says:

    I can understand the sarcasm! But the irony is, we had 64 years under the so called Gandhis who as per George, the torch bearers of Gandhi ideology! What happened? How come poverty and inequality still exists? So you want to say Majority Hindus inflicted poverty, hunger, misery and discrimination on the majority? So, ir was RSS that did it?? But RSS people are not rich either! Definitely not as rich as the others like Chidu, Sonia, Vadra and their gang!
    The reality is, as soon as we got freedom, s bunch of leaches took charge sidelining true nationalists! Defaming Gandhi started by identifying wrong people as freedom fighters instead of the real ones! Then, ‘Sathya graha’ was used by selfish leaders to teach people laziness, to protest against even genuine businesss by labor unions who became pawns for political leadership! Then looting started by permit raj and to do anything a license was needed which had a bribery attached to it! Then minority appeasement secretly replaced democracy! Constitution was to tpplnyo harass common man! Sluggish and incompetent courts added to the misery of the common man! As recent as 8 years ago a powerful son in law of a politician grabbed a lot of Land in Haryana because the victims were too weak to go to court and play the losing game!
    Now for 5 years we are hearing that democracy is thwarted! The incidents are when Chidsmnaram was arrested, DKSibwas arrested, Afzal guru was hanged, a terrorist is killed or an investigation is ordered! Democracy was perfectly fine when 4 million Kashmir Hindus were butchered and an equal number were thrown out of thei ancestorsl homes! Democracy was never in danger were as per Gandhi’s ideals when 8000 Sikh families were murdered!
    It is this double standard that prevails that abuses Gandhi’s name !
    Take George himself! When lots of Hindus are hilled in Kerala by vommumists or clergy he does not raise any peep! But Gowri Gowri lankesh murder, he holds Modi/rss directly responsible! In West Bengal just yesterday as RSS worker, his wife and 9 year old son were murdered! No issue with that! Because RSS are expendable life go! But any suspicious death of a Muslim by default assumed to be a handiwork of rss and deserves capital punishment without investigation! That is the true democracy in action!

    @Prasanna, Only one Gandhi I admire, though he was a luccha is Sanjay Gandhi. He had the audacity to impose nerve cutting, aka vasectomy or family planning. But because a particular congress vote bank protested(wink wink, you know who they are), he was killed by his own people in the name of plane accident.
