Over a 1000 yr period, Hindu Manuvadi men were emasculated by conquerors from West and Central Asia, mostly followers of Islam.

The Hindu Manuvadis were no match to the valor, ruthlessness, cruelty, hunger for power and physical prowess of the marauding forces.

+ The Manuvadis by that time had aleady become effete and pussilanimous because they had completely subjugated the vast majority of Shudras and Dalits and were unchallenged. The Manuvadis had forgotten how to fight. The occupying forces upset this peace and forced Manuvadis to

I see a lot of Muslims shocked and despondent that not enough Hindus are not condemning the attack on Muslims by fellow Hindus.

Muslims have to remember that Hindus actively practice casteism for >2000 yrs. They have no moral repugnance to caste system but calls it"way of life"+ Every effort made by every social reformer has failed miserably and in fact casteism has only grown.

Muslims are subjected to occasional violence in disparate places. But violence on Dalits is a every day...every minute phenomenon in almost all of 🇮🇳.

But speak to an Hindu +

When Hindutva Terrorists take up a Project, dont dismiss it as a mere election gimmick. Deep deceitful thinking goes into it before it is rolled out on experimental basis in a niche. In this case, KA is chosen for 2 reasons - test marketing abt concept and electoral winnability + What we shld look closely is the concept - and the impact on our social and economic lives. As we all know, its mostly Muslims who are involved in retail level meat sales. They will definitely be in business only as long as Halal is possible. The day Hindus decide to buy +

This is an excellent research work done by AlJazeera on how Reliance is ghost funding pro-Modi and anti-RaGa ads in FB over the years. Many questions now arise :

1 When did INC come to know of this campaign by Reliance?

+ 2 If INC came to know of it before 2019, which seems to be the case, what did INC + its IT Cell do to counter this campaign?

3 Did INC flag this to FB and Reliance?

4 What are the roles and responsibilities of INC IT Cell, when such an insidious operation is being carried out

At some level many of us have become like this bird when it comes to understanding Indias political reality : Image Hindus do not really consider secularism as a pivot of national character. They are like "What is wrong with a Hindu Rashtra? If Muslims can hv a Pakistan, why not Hindus have Hindu India? We have already given them Pak. Why cant they go there?"

Unsolicited advice to INC leadership:

1 Divide all 🇮🇳States into 3 categories-

Cat 1 : Where INC is No1 or No2 in voteshare

Cat 2 : Where INC is not No1 or No2 but have a strong existing coalition partner

Cat 3 : States where INC has marginal or no presence and no partner + Cat-1 States: Put all your resources, manpower and leadership bandwidth in these States and fight to win atleast 50% of seats there; you have 2 years now and mostly doable

Cat-2 States: Leave it to the local partner to fight; provide assistance as demanded; dont trouble them +

Political fallout on TN :

1 More aggressive TN BJP and 🐐

2 ADMK wl make efforts to reach out to BJP and make peace

3 PMK may also follow suit as is DMDK

4 TN BJP will gain upper hand Vs its alliance partners; may demand and get more seats

+ 5 BJP had never been comfortable with Sasi. So Sasi may see her career coming to an end. ADMK wl b EPS baby as he has been steadfast in his loyalty to Modi

6 DMK wl try and extricate itself from close ties with INC. DMK Govt needs funds and cooperation from Centre

The writing on the wall is very clear. Almost all of North India is in the tight bloody grip of Hindutva which no one is able to effectively fight; may be never able to fight in future too

Afterall Hindutva seems to be the natural ideology of North Indians!
+ Under normal circumstances, many of us wl be tempted to give advice to INC. But that wont help becos majority NIndians hv firmly gravitated towards a deadly ideology

Even change in INC leadership may not help to revive it. It may 1ly give some hope to a few disgruntled INCians

Can someone familiar with EVM operations clarify this thread of mine :

1 EVMs allotted to a Constituency are randomized before distribution to booths;

2 Each EVM carries a Unique serial number which is printed on the M/c

3 Each constituency also maintains spare EVMs...

4 The officials read out the serial number of EVMs before it is kept for voting

5 Party agents note down this serial number to ensure that only same machine is taken up for counting later

6 The serial number is the only parameter +

The recent drama being enacted by BJP/RSS in the name of an unfortunate girl Lavanya is a carefully thought out plan.

BJP/RSS strategy to grow in TN is to pander to caste pride of dominant OBCs. Economic growth amongst Dalits have unsettled TN OBCs for long. The old equations in rural areas have frayed and simply don't work. Education and new-age jobs have triggered mass migration of Dalits to urban areas. As they settle in urban areas, many of them convert to Xtianity to discard their past life filled with abuse and insults +

A bunch of students come to school everyday and wait it out. They want to study But their only mistake is they cover their heads with a black cloth

Headmistress Ms Gowda should be such a vile, mean and bigoted character. Imagine the values that the children who study under+ her will carry and practice!

I m sure she would be a mother. Not even the maternal feeling changed her stone heart. She poses a bigger threat to society than any terrorist.

I cannot imagine the trauma those children go through. They are being made to feel small everyday.

Folks who have worked with Gujarati businessmen (GBs) wd know this.

GBs look for value extraction at every step of process/production chain. If you are a manufacturer, you try to cut cost at every step. This is done by protracted negotiations, threats, cajoling etc + This strategy, wd be adopted for most sub-processes/products. Where thy can't outsource, they do backward integration. Profit wl be squeezed at every step. Even transportation and logistics wl not be spared

This may look very logical and make you think you will make big profit +

While chatting with my cousin brother today, he posed an interesting question :

"How will this all end?"

Its a profound question - on how the disease will end and how Modi will handle the disease and the post-disease fallout.

+ It made me think on the likely outcome.

My prognosis is, the disease will eventually disappear, after taking a huge human toll; the Spanish Flu spanned for 4 long years. Mankind had not then discovered any microbe. There was no vaccination then; India lost 5% population!

Mini Rant

I never discuss politics with our driver. But today he asked me about farmers' protest. I broadly summarised that MSP and APMC are being done away with and that farmers can sell their produce to anyone at any price.

He responded, "Thats good. So whats wrong?"

+ I explained to him about how APMC/Mandi structure is critical for farmers and how its destruction wl lead to their ruination. I also briefly explained how sharks like AmbaniAdani would benefit from such a move!

He sort of understood but was still unconvinced about the protest

Caution: Thread

Unsolicited advice to INC & Oppo. Parties

I had done an analysis of performance of non-BJP parties, particularly INC in 2019 LS elections to look for lessons for 2024. I focused on INC as it occupies no2 position in our polity despite its dwindling profile
+ Accordingly I divided the States/UT into 3 categories - A, B and C

Category A represents those States/UT where INC remains either No1 or No2 as per vote share in 2019 elections (Primary Party); Category B refers States/UT where INC is not No1 or No2 but has/can have partner

Caution: Thread

I have analysed results of 23 Assembly Byelections held in 2019 in TN by comparing them with outcomes of respective Assembly segments in LS election held alongside

Analysis should serve as a warning to DMK that ADMK still remains a viable potent force! + Please be noted that all 22 assembly seats were held by ADMK as part of 2016 elections; as such any gain by DMK only improved its numbers in TN assembly. Yet it is critical to ascertain the voting pattern amongst voters in TN Assembly and Parliamentary elections!

Caution : Thread

Here I have analysed 2019 TN LS election outcome to arrive at the likely assembly seats that DMK and ADMK alliances would have obtained if LS and Assembly elections had occurred simultaneously and if people had voted similarly in both elections.

+ Note: There were also byelections held for 23 assembly seats whose outcome did NOT even closely match with the results of LS elections. But thats in a different thread (will upload later)!

This is exactly why I do not want to predict the fallout of Rajini's entry yesterday

One of the best analysis appears in IE. Recommended reading

Household Consumption and private sector investment fell 27% & 47% resply. The two sectors contribute 88% to GDP. Increase in Govt expend. and net export unable to compensate this big fall

indianexpress.com/article/explai…

+ Clearly no easy fixes. Increasing household consumption and thereby private sector investment only way out. But unlikely to happen!

A complete lockdown was imposed at a point of 571 infections and is sought to be lifted when we have 35 lakh infections (raising at 70K+/day)!!

It is becoming increasingly clear that Hindu Terror outfits belonging to RSS have infiltrated the TN police forces

It is almost impossible for Periyarist outfits to get permission even to have an indoor meeting from Police now. It is all falling in place.

A few weeks back our organization was dissuaded by the Police to not have an event celebrating Valentines Day. But we persisted. In many cases, we put a legal team to file cases to get a simple police permission

Personal anecdote on

#FatherOfModernTamilnadu #Kalaignar97

I used to work for a JV between GoTn and FIs. GoTN had then asked us to evolve a plan to develop an EcoPark at the Adayar Creek/Estuary in Chennai and put in place an implementable framework for it.

It is time to remember a few critical events of 1990 and 1991 on this day ie., May 21st

1 After VPSINGH accepted Mandal Commission, anti-Bahujan BJP orchestrated country wide riots

2 It culminated in BJP withdrawing support to VP Singh Govt just after 11 months

+ 3 A faction of Janata Party led by Chandrasekhar formed a Govt with 54 MPs to which Rajiv Gandhi's party extended outside support

4 INC had an alliance with ADMK led by Jayalalitha. In the earlier TN election, DMK routed ADMK by winning 151 seats in 234 seat assembly
