So pathetic that we Indians now have a bunch of prejudiced idiots in the editing desks. Instead of reporting the facts, these media are ONLY interested in sensationalizing news there by increasing their reader/viewer-ship ratings. In my last post I have posted how Kerala CM, V S Achuthananthan‘s comments were misinterpreted consciously to create a controversy by TimesNOW. I believe these pro-right bourgeoisie media are ONLY very keen and ‘sincere’ to create unnecessary controversies when a communist leader is involved. Here, I have compiled a few instances (though not limited to) related to Mumbai terror attacks, which our Indian media were reluctant to comment or ‘sensationalize‘.

  1. During the 26/11 attacks, our first citizen, Pratibha Patil was on tour to Bali and had returned to India only by 1st of December. No media were enthusiastic enough in reporting the absence of ‘rashtrapathi’ – lord of the realm, when her country was under terror attacks.
  2. If you go behind the real reason of attacks, which in turn lead to martyr of Major. Sandeep Unnikrishnan, your search will end in front of 7 Race Course Road who should be held responsible, as the head of government, and also his defense minister, for the unforgivable failure of Indian intelligence system in the Mumbai terror attacks. When did the Hon. defence minister, A K Antony called up the slain major’s family? It didn’t hit the headlines when the defense minister was late to call up and console his soldier’s family and also when, Mr. Unnikrishnan. father of slain Major. Sandeep Unnikrishnan refused to talk to him.
  3. It also didn’t become a headline when the yuvraj, Shri. Rahul Gandhi was busy partying midnight during the Mumbai terror attacks till 5 AM in the morning. Also have a look at how Congress party defended the yuvraj’s booze-party. Don’t tell me that you didn’t know about this incident – you didn’t, because most of our media is right-biased to core.
  4. Back to Kerala, when the opposition parties lead by India National Congress (I), was alleging of the delay – well there wasn’t any delay anyway. The Kerala chief minister had called up the Political secretary the moment he came to know about the incident, to visit the Major’s house. He had also called up Major’s house, expressed his condolences and assured that he will visit their house at Banglore, the very next day. The million dollar (or rupee) question is how many of Kerala opposition leaders visited the Major’s house till now? The answer is ZERO.
  5. There was a protest lead by Yuva Morcha (Malayalam news – It seems no non-Malayalam media had reported it.) at Thiruvananthapuram against the Kerala CM’s remarks alleging that it insulted Major Sandeep’s family. It is quite clear that (in my last post I have translated Kerala CM’s comments), there was nothing in Kerala CM’s comments, explicitly or implicitly, abusive or defaming the Major or his family. Now, in that protest, they hung the picture of Kerala CM to a dog and walked with it. Ironically, these are the people who are proud about their “great Indian culture“, but here they forgot respecting Kerala CM, not his position, but his age – he might be older than most of their grandparents!

It was unfortunate to see the angry youth abusing, hate-mailing/scrapping the Kerala CM for absolutely no mistake from his side, blinded by the misinterpreted reports from the right-biased media and even when I am writing this post, the opposition parties are still protesting against the CM even after both the parties have unconditionally apologized each other and requested to end the controversy. I am wondering when the media and the so-called “patriotic youth” [whose blood boils only when they see an Indo-Pak match or when they see a war movie. They are too lazy to do something for their country but are very keen to get outside India for a job. They firmly believe that they hold the “monopoly of patriotism” . For obvious reasons I call these misguided pseudo-patriotic youth as the “curse of India“] will start protesting for a reduction in Crude oil prices which is the need of the hour. It was increased when the crude oil prices hit above 140$ mark for a barrel, and as of now it is some 45$ for a barrel. The reduced petroleum product price may help in controlling the commodity prices which will be useful for India as a whole. Manmohan Singh government is very reluctant in reducing the Diesel/Petrol prices, which they say, will affect the profit of Petroleum companies. I would like to see a decrease in at least the Diesel prices, which will directly influence (because of the reduction in freight charges) the essential commodity prices.

The chief minister, V S Achuthananthan starts speaking from the 27-28th second of the video. There are at two places the video is broken (cut). Even the question asked to him is NOT shown [UPDATE0: Imagine how a person will answer to a question like this – “Haven’t Sandeep’s father told you before that not even a dog should enter my house. Why did you go then?“]. In this attempt I am explaining a word-to-word translation and explanation of CM’s statements.

He Starts….[0:28 to 0:43]

കര്‍ണ്ണാടകത്തിലെ chief minister-ഉം പരിവാരങ്ങളും വരുന്നതിന്റെ കൂടെ … അല്ലെങ്കില്‍ അതിനു മുമ്പോ, കേരളത്തിലെ മുഖ്യമന്ത്രിയും മറ്റും കൂടെ വന്നില്ല…. ഒരാളും തിരിഞ്ഞു നോക്കിയില്ല…. അതില്‍ വികാരവിക്ഷോഭിതനായി എന്ന്….
<CUT>

The word-to-word translation,

Along with the Karnataka chief minister and his team…. or even before, the Kerala chief minister didn’t come… everyone from Kerala turned their back…. and he got over it…

The meaning,

Sandeep’s father got emotional over the fact that Kerala Chief minister or his representative couldn’t attend the funeral with or even before the Karnataka chief minister.

Kerala CM resumes speaking after the <CUT> [0:44-0:48]

കര്‍ണ്ണാടകത്തിലെ മുഖ്യമന്ത്രിയും കേരളത്തിലെ മുഖ്യമന്ത്രിയും നമ്മുക്കൊരുമിച്ച് പോകാമെന്ന് ഇവിടെ അറിയിച്ചിട്ടുണ്ടോ?
<CUT>

The meaning,

Did the Karnatka CM had messaged anything to visit the home together?

The controversial part of the footage comes after the next <CUT> [0:49-end]

സന്ദീപിന്റെ വീടല്ലനെങ്കില്‍ ഒരു പട്ടി തിരിഞ്ഞുനോക്കുമോ അവിടെ?സന്ദീപിന്റെ കുടുംബം, സന്ദീപിന്റെ പിതാവ്, സന്ദീപിന്റെ മാതാവ്, സന്ദീപിന്റെ കുടുംബാംഗങ്ങള്‍ എന്നിവരോടുള്ള ഞങ്ങളുടെ attachment…. ഒരു പ്രത്യേകമല്ലേ അത്? അതു മനസ്സിലാക്കുവാന്‍ ഉണ്ണികൃഷ്ണനെപ്പോലിള്ള ഒരു soldier-ന്റെ പിതാവിന് കഴിയേണ്ടതല്ലേ?

Word-to-word translation,

Had it not been Sandeep’s house, not even a dog would have glanced in. Sandeeps family, Sandeeps father, Sandeeps mother, Sandeeps family members, the attachment we have for them… that is very special, right? A soldiers father should have understood those?

Meaning,

Had it not been Sandeep’s house, not even a dog would have glanced in. The attachment we have with Sandeep’s family, Sandeep’s father, Sandeep’s mother, Sandeep’s family members is very special. A soldiers father should have understood those feelings.

Now, please tell me where he (Kerala CM) had insulted Major. Sandeep’s family?. Why ONLY the first sentence in his quote was colored and made in BOLD (in the footage)?

This is where I criticize the media of communist bashing! This is CHEATING! The TimesNOW had cheated ALL OF YOU!

The TimesNOW channel should publish the unedited footage of the interview if they have the minimal ethics/morals a journalist is expected to possess. It is so pity that the media is sensationalizing the issue just to score ahead in viewership by capitalizing the patriotic emotions of people.

I can understand it when non-Malayalam speaking friends criticize the CM, because they can ONLY swallow what TimesNOW says. Let me express by protest against my Malayalee friends who could understand Malayalam very well, consciously and will-fully became a part of this fact-hijacking footage by TimesNOW that too in the name of patriotism. Shame on YOU for capitalizing the fellow country-men’s patriotic emotions for satisfying your anti-communist needs.

FAQ

Q0. Karat had criticized CM’s remarks, CM had apologized and still what you are blabbering?

Their actions are completely political….just to save their face. My actions are completely personal, to expose the TRUTH, to explain MY STAND!… “I fear no DOGS”

Q1. Are you a Communist?

I am NOT a member of any of the main-stream left party and don’t wish to join, as of now, in the near future. But I am a staunch leftist.

Q2. So you blindly support CPI(M) or CPI for all their actions?

Read Q4. in this FAQ. (scroll down)

I wish if you could read Malayalam, so that you can read this beautiful post.

May be patriotism is the adrenaline rush you get when watching the final overs of a 20-20 match for most of you… that is NOT the same for me and many others!

I thought (like others) that it was all over after the ‘sincere’ regrets from the CEO of Kerals.com. Their mails to injipennu was so disgusting. But their latest action is too much. They are bringing regionalism into the problem for their personal gain. The people behind Kerals.com are real criminals. First they had threatened and cyberstalked Injipennu for her strong response against the plagiarism by Kerals.com. Then they had created a fake profile in the porn site owned by them. And, now they had posted this false allegation against injipennu, in their newly registered domain, hoping that the Tamil speaking people will protest against her.

The authorities should urgently intervene in the situation and put all these criminals behind the bars. I also request the Tamil speaking people to understand their real intentions. I am including the following Tamil words hoping to get listed in some Tamil blog aggregators. லேட்டாயிவன்தாலும்லேட்டச்டாயி வர்ரேன் (hope I said it correct), பொய்சொல்லக்கூடாத்காதலீ… பொய்சொன்னாலும்னீயெஎன்காஅதலீ (I like this song very much), என்_ பேர் படயப்ப…

Lets take the count of crimes he and his team had committed till now.

(1) As per Indian IT Act 2000, chapter 9 (Offences), section 67,

Why:- They are running many porn sites.

Why:- They posted false allegations against injipennu with the intention of causing discomfort among the Tamil speaking people and turn them against injipennu and other Malayalam speaking people.

I request the Tamil blogging community to take up the issue very seriously and help us in putting these anti-social, anti-human elements behind the bars.

NOTE:- This post is not just for Indians, but for every men and women who cares about FREEDOM and SOVEREIGNTY.

(1) This company is infamous for the dirty tricks it played to monopolize the market. (Link1, Link 2, Link 3)

(2) This company is famous for its “idiot-friendly” products which claims to be user-friendly dumbofying smart people.

(3) This company is infamous for its poorly written softwares which crashes every now and then, even during when it was first presented to the world!!!

(4) This company produces softwares which require heavy hardware resources (which benefits the hardware vendors), the output of these can be obtained from free softwares at a much lower hardware configuration.

(5) The products of this company is often affected by virus and similar security threats so often that for being safe you have to reinstall the system once at least a month or a costly anti-virus software which eats up the “available system resources”.

(6) This company played a really cheap trick to get its broken standard get accepted as an ISO standard and is still behind the nations which opposed it.

I am talking about none other than Microsoft. If you are not aware about the dirty tricks played by them, then you, your country and your people are in real trouble.

By adopting a pseudo-open proprietary format like OOXML as a national standard (fortunately it is not ) you are actually risking the freedom and sovereignty of your country. The whole of the government transactions will be using this proprietary standard which forces us to use these closed-source softwares which demands direct costs as well as indirect cost in the form of hardware and “related-required” softwares (like antivirus, anti-spyware, defragmenter, registry maintainer etc).

Microsoft had joined hands with Indian(?) companies like TCS, Infosys and WIPRO to get their broken-format accepted by the BIS (fortunately for Indians, it got rejected).I really felt bad when I saw this post which I think everyone of us should read to under stand the low-business-ethics of Microsoft. Quoting from Prof. Deepak Phatak’s blog.

….Microsoft started filing complaints to various Indian authorities in early March 2008, claiming bias on part of several members of the committee because of their presumed membership of a group called ‘ODF Alliance India’. My Institution and its representatives are part of the group which has been falsely implicated in these complaints. Worse, the complaints have painted these organizations and their representatives, including the Indian delegation which attended the BRM, as acting against the Indian National interests. This is the most derogatory accusation to any Indian, amounting, personally for me at least, to intolerable blasphemy…..
….Microsoft continued to make representations to top Indian leadership, pressurizing them to change the Indian vote. This act, in my opinion, goes well beyond the behavioral boundaries for a non-Indian commercial entity, amounting to interfering with the governance process of a sovereign country….

….My first anguish is the way the name of my colleagues and my Institution, along with names of several others on the committee LITD 15, have been maligned and tarnished by Microsoft. My second anguish is that Microsoft persisted in its attempt to pressurize Indian leadership to change the Indian stand, in spite of the fact that a due process established by the Government had completed its job, recommending no change in the Indian vote. These two things, amongst others, have caused me to lose my peace of mind and my sleep over last two months. I share my thoughts (which sometimes have been rather wild), and my anguish in this section.…..

…..I am aware that I am only a humble teacher. I am aware that Microsoft is a mighty, rich, and powerful company. But if I perceive a threat to my national sovereignty and to her honor, this old teacher will simply pack his pen, and pick up a sword for a mortal combat. I believe many more of my fellow Indians may think of doing likewise. Please be informed that If I am forced to join such a battle, then I will never come back defeated. I may come back only dead. That, Mr Microsoft, is my privilege, and that indeed is my honor.…..

….In this 21st century, India is a unified nation of more than one billion people. My countrymen seek to live happily in a just and civil society full of prosperity, love, and harmony. They seek to share knowledge and technology from all other people of the world. They do want to listen to useful advice from every quarter. Come and discuss business and let us negotiate a win-win deal. Do discuss technology and knowledge, and we will be eager to have mutually beneficial relationships. Do discuss economic policies, and we will be equal partners in the humanity’s march to prosperity…..

I have lots of friends and relatives, who are slaves of Microsoft Windows who often made fun of me when I talked about “the change”. Please understand that by using Microsoft Windows, be it licensed or pirated, you are risking your freedom and losing a lot of money as direct cost (in purchasing Microsoft Windows), indirect costs (“required-related softwares” and “associated softwares” like office package, movie/music player, internet browser etc) and maintenance charges (which includes cost of reinstalling, data loss during reinstalling, bandwidth charges for anti-virus updation, bandwidth charges which arises from virus related problems etc). Think about the tonnes of money you will be saving (for you and your family) if you shift to free software technology. Yes, it is in fact a SERVICE to your country, to the whole humanity to change to free software and to spread the message. I am pretty much happy that I am doing the same…..
