Prachanda’s Mao from China or of Delhi
All our so-called leaders seem to have Indian price tags that immobilize them as soon as acting against Indian excesses comes up. While during Panchayat system they used to be called Arastriya Tattwo, their habit does not seem to have faded even after a quarter century of multiparty democracy. While most of our politicians are international beggars. They will do anything for anybody as long as money is on the way.
The latest case is one of our most successful rags-to-riches politicians, Sher Bahadur Deuba. He has not spoken a word about the India’s murder of Gautam in his one constituency.
As far as India is concerned, we must understand that it is natural for Indian politicians, bureaucrats, and security forces to mistreat us because this is what they have been doing all along in their own country. We must remember that India is the only country in the world which has managed to keep 70 percent of its people–950 million or 30 times the population of Nepal–in abject poverty even after seventy years of independence.
For most Indians, 1947 does not mean the end of colonial rule; it just means the change of address of the colonial lords. Previously they used to come from Britain. Now they live in Delhi, Bombay, and Bengaluru. One of the Indian columnists even found it apt to eulogize poverty, although as a satire by dubbing it “glorious poverty”. So, we must be on the look out for staying away from the savagery of the Indian politicians and bureaucrats at whose beck and call the security forces function.
I do not see another way out than moving closer to China as fast as we can, although Prachanda and Sher Bahadur and their other accomplices are trying to delay it as much as possible. While Prachanda and co. call themselves Maoists, their Mao is not the one from China. There is one with a similar name in the corridors of power in New Delhi.
