What ya ! All that effort & we got caught out.

The Anatomy Of An Indian Liberal in LaLa Land
Class ~ Privileged

First language ~ English

Religious Denomination ~108 Surya Namaskars for a washboard stomach, decolonised yoga, not having any of that Brahmanical patriarchy, whatever it is.

Definitely nothing to do with that Hindutva thingy.
Motto ~ #BLM
Please note B stands for Black. Not Brown.

Personal Statement ~ To miss the woods for the trees.

Opinion ~ Bloody plebs don't understand that their sentiments don’t matter & their opinion is worthless if we believe you cannot afford Tanishq jewellery.
*Hindutva bigots ! What would you know about a beautiful product & the artistry of a advert to match*

*So you didn’t burn the city. You didn’t destroy the store - though our channel tried to make you do it*

*You didn’t behead the .. I don’t know ... someone*
*We could ‘feel’ your toxicity rip through social media. And that, mind you, is just, just bar- baric !!

*Go drink your Gaumutra*!
Lexicon ~ Intersectionality of Interfaith

*Our idea of India is to call it an interfaith marriage but with a little name change here & there & the kids brought up in the interfaith, erm...Faith*
*So we in turn wrote mushy articles & tweets on our wonderful, all embracing in-laws which were dutifully forwarded by ‘atheists’...*

*Who cares about your ugly experiences? We don’t want to know.*

*Give us pretty, pretty.... always*

Class ~ Privileged

First language ~ English

Religious Denomination ~ Confused.

Mission Statement ~ We stand for the marginalised & the oppressed.

Personal Statement ~ My Daddy Matters.
Merit is discriminatory.
Opinion ~ Islam is in danger.
Those who don’t think so are Islamophobes.

Argument ~ Come on! Cartoons of the Prophet is UNacceptable ! He means more to them than their parents & their children.

*Ram is a myth*
Argument ~ This beheading has nothing to do with their Faith.

*But...every little pickpocket who turns out to be Hindu is because of Manusmriti, caste, RSS, Modi ...*

Argument ~Everyone has their own way of venting anger !

*IMO outraging on SM is the worst possible crime !*
Argument ~ They escaped all kinds of horror in their own countries but now this European plenty fullness & freedom all around is too much to handle.

*By the way, India is no place for Muslims*

*erm... where exactly is the right place ?*
*Hello ?!
Why no mushy stories or tweets on the subject ?

No unborn babies writing long winded articles on how such families are embracing, warm, harmonious, god fearing with erm... a sense of humour ?
No pretty pretty, why?*

*Think about it. Shubh Ratri 🙏🏼*

There are people right now practising their fall...

- Priyanka has to ensure her nose will remain intact.

- Shashi must get that hair flick right.

- Gehlot is happy no one is paying attention to him so he’s pushing that handsome, English-speaking wishwash to take a roll.
- Surjewala not only has to fall but has to brief us why Rahul’s act is tough to follow.
Everyone, after all, is not motivated by erm ... a bush.
- Mamata is checking if it’s possible to do it right with her arms still firmly across her chest.

- Pawar is hoping it will rain.

In France, mid 70s preceding & after PM Desai & FM Vajpayee’s visits there were several docufilms & TV discussions on India which made me dread school the following morning.
Both teachers & classmates would accost me wide-eyed with a variety of incredulous questions on
-Caste system
Was I allowed to take water from the well ? Or was I upper caste & kept myself segregated from lower castes ?

-Dowry system
Would my father buy me groom ?

-Arranged marriages
Would I be condemned to a loveless transaction?
Did we plan our day accordingly ?

-Fetish for sons
Was my being educated the norm ?

Did we get down from our cars & bow to passing bovines ?

The fact that my father didn’t have a bodhi like the Hare Rama Hare Rama guys was also a matter of great surprise.

So many decades later I can say this .... 😁
Newly married, my husband & I moved to a neglected land- holding that belonged to the family.

Besides a pump room, gardener’s room & our own two rooms there were 3 Neem trees, an unidentifiable hedge & a profusion of overgrowth - home to snakes & other creepy crawlies.
Soon with the Mali I began the exercise of clearing & cleaning one part of the land hoping to grow tuberoses ... that of course is another story ... of unrealistic expectations built on a 4-hour electric supply & water entirely dependent on it.

~Indeed with Ministers, his status is more that of king among courtiers than first among equals. We are told that in cabinet no-one, with the possible exception of K C Pant, the Defence Minister, dares to contradict him~…
~With 24 re-shuffles in four years, no Minister has been allowed to remain in one job long enough to establish an independent political reputation~
~After over four years in office, inexperience is no longer a sufficient excuse. It has become clear that Gandhi also has problems of indecisiveness and a tendency to lose interest in the implementation of policies~

The thing about some of them is that they believe, they want, they wish, they hope & then they exult in anything negative.

Every step to reform or bring change has been met with debilitating cynicism...
~See I told you black money would be back…

~Wasn’t terrorism suppose to end ?

~Let’s see how long the railway platforms remain clean ?
The same cynical fixers who feasted on our ‘system’ and broke the spine of this country wondered during the Lockdown....

H1- Happy X!
We made A B & C for the occasion, decorated the house with D & sang F G & H.

H2 - Happy X1 ! We call it that here.
We made A B & C1 for the occasion. C1 is tastier.
The house is never decorated with D but D1 & singing F is not really appropriate for this festival.
H1- Congratulate me ! I got married to X from Z
Draped my saree as in A & the ceremony was B & C.
D F & G served the wedding meal of H I & J.

H2 - Congratulations! So a Y married a Z !
You could have worn the saree as in A1. You didn’t conduct C1 ? That’s very important.
On our side D F & G1 serve the wedding meal.
Why J?
K is so much more delicious. Traditional wedding fare too.
