Curious Case of Bobby Jindal


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JUNE 29, 2015           01.15 A.M.

For my Sunday blog, I was searching for the topic. Suddenly I thought about Piyush Jindal, a.k.a. Bobby Jindal, the 55th and current governor of Louisiana and the former vice chairman of the Republican Governors Association.

He is an Indian – American but does not like to be known as Indian – American. He, last week, made that infamous speech that he came to USA to become American and not Indian – American. He was lampooned for his comment by Indian diaspora ( NRI & PIO included ) . Twitter was abuzz with #YoBobbySoWhite hashtag. I am reproducing some of the interesting tweets with hashtag #YoBobbySoWhite :

Piyush “Bobby” Jindal (born June 10, 1971) is an American politician who is the 55th and current governor of Louisiana and the former vice chairman of the Republican Governors Association. Jindal was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to immigrants from India.

Prior to entering politics, Jindal studied for a Bachelor of Science in biology and public policy at Brown University from 1988 to 1991 and then a Master of Letters in political science from New College, Oxford, as a Rhodes Scholar. He worked for McKinsey & Company and interned for Rep. Jim McCrery of Louisiana.

In 1996, Gov. Murphy Foster appointed Jindal secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, and in 1999 he was appointed president of the University of Louisiana System. In 2001, Jindal was appointed as the principal adviser to Tommy Thompson, the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services by the 43rd President, George W. Bush.

He first ran for governor in 2003 and won a plurality in the nonpartisan blanket primary but lost in the general election to the Democratic candidate, Kathleen Blanco. He then won a seat in the United States House of Representatives in the 2004 elections. The second Indian American in Congress, he was re-elected in 2006. He ran for governor again in 2007 and secured an outright majority in the first round of balloting; in doing so, he became the first Indian American governor in the United States. He was re-elected in a landslide in 2011.

On June 24, 2015, Jindal announced his candidacy for president in 2016.

————————————————————-

I have reproduced above facts of his life from Wikipedia.

————————————————————–

Let us have a look on the life of Piyush Jindal, a.k.a. Bobby Jindal. He was born to Amar Jindal and Raj Jindal, immigrants from Punjab. They came to the USA six months before he was born. So he is 1st generation American. He became the second Indian American in Congress, and the first Indian American governor in the United States. So many Indians were elated.

He is not a Hindu as everyone would like to believe. He was converted to Christianity quite early in his life and is a practising Roman Catholic. Have a look at the name of his children : SELIA ELIZABETH , SHAAN ROBERTS & SLADE RYAN.

Therefore if he does not feel any affinity towards India or Hinduism, he should be left to himself. I think if a person is ashamed of his mother, mother tongue and motherland, he ceases to be a human. Mr. Piyush Jindal a.k.a. Bobby Jindal is ashamed of his origin, his name, his parent’s country and their religion. Such a person can’t be Indian or Hindu in any sense of the term.

Rest assured Mr. Jindal, if you want to be American and not Indian American, we Indian have no burning desire to claim you as our own. We have our glorious history, out illustrious forefathers, our unending national icons. We belong to a vibrant Hindu culture and civilization, which is oldest in the world. You be happy to embrace a religion which is 2015 years old.

In our long history, we had many traitors and Trojan horses among us. At least you didn’t betray. You said openly what you wanted to say. If you are ashamed of us, we are equally ashamed of your existence. If you refuse to acknowledge your parent’s motherland because it is not as affluent as your adopted land, we also refuse to acknowledge you and your family.

Farewell Mr. Jindal !! You are not Indian in any sense. In the era of Shri Narendra Modi, we don’t need ABCD [ American Born Confused Desi ] like you.

On behalf of all the students & staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Merchandise, I denounce this Piyush Jindal a.k.a. Bobby Jindal.

In the era of Narendra Modi, when we are standing on the threshold of glory and glorious future, we hardly need a person like Mr. Jindal, who is so untrue to his salt.

Father’s Day & My Brothers-In-Law


DSC01182

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JUNE 21, 2015           11.55 P.M.

 

For me Sunday is the day of reading and writing. As I am sitting in my study in Mumbai and watching rain water caressing window panes of my study, I started pondering about the subject of my blog. As it is the 1st International Yoga Day today, the obvious choice seems to be the 1st International Yoga Day.

But I suddenly realise that it is FATHER’S DAY also and today youngsters are celebrating it with gusto. So I think it is better to write about it.

In India is there any need for a day like this? A country which since time immemorial pronounced :

पिता स्वर्ग , पिता धर्म , पिता ही परमंतपो ,
पितोरि प्रीतिमापन्ने , प्रीयन्ते सर्व देवता ॥

[ Father is like heaven, father is like religion, father is like supreme penance / meditation. If your father is pleased with you, all the Gods are pleased with you automatically. ]

यः प्रीणयेत् सुचरितैः पितरं स पुत्रो ॥

[ They are the worthy sons, who please their fathers with their good conducts. ]

So where is the need for this obnoxious FATHER’S DAY?

But these days youngsters celebrate just one day as FATHER’S DAY, because their father and mother don’t exist for them for the rest of 364 days.

Today as I write this blog about FATHER’S DAY, I remember my two brothers-in-law, Shri Krishna Mohan Shukla and Shri Gyan Prakash Chaturvedi. I have never seen such devout father worshippers in my life. They never criticise their respective fathers. They never crib about some imaginary short-comings of their fathers. Their fathers must have made few mistakes in their lives. But I have never heard them complaining about that. They belong to rich and respectable families. Still their fathers were unable to provide them fancy cars, private jet planes and a personal / private islands for vacation. But they don’t complain. They were not sent to foreign countries for so-called better education but they don’t accuse their fathers for that.

They are always full of gratitude because they know that their fathers had made supreme sacrifices for their education and upbringing. Their fathers did everything which they could. And which they couldn’t do, they are not blamed, insulted or cursed for that.

For such people every day is FATHER’S DAY. Because gratitude and respect is in their DNA. I always respect Shri Krishna Mohan Shukla and Shri Gyan Prakash Chaturvedi from the bottom of my heart. I know that my sisters are married to good human beings and that they will live a secure and satisfied life till their end. Whenever death will knock at my door, I will die a satisfied death fully knowing that after I am gone my sisters won’t face any difficulties in their marital lives because they have such good-hearted men as their spouses.

I don’t know I am a good son or not. But whenever I think about my father, I feel that I never betrayed him. I may not be a good son but he was a good father. He took extremely good care of me. He did everything what he could do for my well-being. He supported me with the kind of money which was genuinely required. He bought me a Herculis Cycle. I still cherish the gift. And I don’t blame him that he was unable to provide me fancy cars, sport bikes and that he never send me abroad for holidaying. I wore normal clothes and Bata shoes. We had no fridge, cooler or radiograme at home, which were common in those days. But I have no grudge against him for these things. He sent me to Allahabad for higher studies. I still feel indebted for that. I don’t blame him that he couldn’t dole out money for me to get admitted in Oxford or Cambridge.

He did everything which he could do. I am happy that I never pestered him with unnecessary requests. I never forced him to take loan to give me a life of so-called luxury. In fact my two other brothers and two sister have the same feelings for him. We don’t blame our father for anything.

He died on February 27, 1974 due to heart failure. I was 22 and studying at Allahabad. I was not there at the time of his death. I have a regret. I was not able to help him in his old age. I couldn’t do anything for him, though he did everything for me. My younger brother Atul was more fortunate. He was always at his side. He was there when he died. He served him well and I couldn’t. I still regret it but …………………

 

इस जीवन की चादर में , साँसों के ताने – बाने हैं ,
दुःख की थोड़ी सी सलवट है , सुख के कुछ फूल सुहाने हैं ,
क्यों सोचें आगे क्या होगा , अब कल के कौन ठिकाने हैं ,
ऊपर बैठा वो बाज़ीगर , जाने क्या मन में ठाने है ,
चाहे जितना भी जतन करें , भरने का दामन तारों से ,
झोली  में वो ही आएंगे , जो तेरे नाम के दाने हैं ……

 

As I ponder on my life this night, I don’t find any reason to blame my father for anything. I am myself responsible for my failures, short-comings and misfortunes, if there are any. I don’t need my father as a scapegoat for my wretched life.

A new day of my life starts tomorrow. When all my friends, even my younger brother Devesh, have retired, I am preparing for a 18-hour-working-schedule at the age of 63. Death will knock at my door any day. Though I regret that I wasn’t able to serve my father but I will leave this world with extreme satisfaction that I have no complaint against my father. I don’t blame him for anything.

For this simple reason I don’t need a FATHER’S DAY. My father is always with me. He will remain there till my last day on earth, till my last breath.

An Open Letter To FTII Alumna / Alumnus


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JUNE 18, 2015           00.30 A.M.

Dear Alumna / Alumnus of FTII, Pune !

I have already written 2 blogs about the FTII [ Film & Television Institute of India ] , Pune. 1st blog was written on March 28, 2010. It was about the declining and deteriorating standards of FTII. The 2nd one was written on October 28, 2012. It was about hubris and high-handed behaviour of students of FTII. Today I am forced to write 3rd blog about FTII.

I am reading in newspapers that alumnus of this so-called premier institute are agitated against Shri Gajendra Chauhan, the newly appointed FTII Chief. Nearly 150 students boycotted classes today and continued their protest for the 5th day.

According to Harishankar Nachimuthu, the President of Student’s Union of FTII, Gajendra Chauhan’s appointment is a conspiracy to saffronise this prestigious ( ? ) institute. He states that he is not going to accept Shri Gajendra Chauhan as Chief of FTII. May I demand to know, who is seeking his acceptance or concurrence?

I came to know that several past students [ who are jobless since time immemorial ] are holding meeting in Mumbai and threatening central government that they will fight against Shri Gajendra Chauhan, “a Narendra Modi stooge” till the end. According to them he lacks stature and administrative experience. May I demand to know, who the hell are they to decide, whether Shri Chauhan has the required stature or not?

In the past Mr. Shyam Benegal, Mr. Mrinal Sen, Mr. Adoor Gopalakrishnan, Mr. Mahesh Bhatt, Mr. Girish Karnad, Mr. Vinod Khanna, Prof. U.R. Ananthamurthy and Mr. Saeed Mirza have served as Chairman of the Governing Council of FTII.  They were appointed by the government of the day. Shri Gajendra Chauhan is also appointed by present central government.

I fail to understand, how can students demand to have a say in the appointment of Chief of FTII. Moreover, what stake do past students have in the affairs of their Alma Mater? Why are they agitated? Why are they threatening to “fight till the end”?

Students and alumnus of this so-called prestigious institute should realize that their job is to get trained and not to decide about the governing council chief or other administrative matters of the institute. They must realize that the golden days of Shri Roshan Taneja are over. Their activism fails to produce a single actor of the calibre of ASHOK KUMAR, MOTI LAL, DILIP KUMAR, BALRAJ SAHNI, SANJEEV KUMAR, AMITABH BACHCHAN, SHAHRUKH KHAN, AMIR KHAN, HRITIK ROSHAN or RANBIR KAPOOR. None of the above mentioned actors are the alumnus of FTII. I also fail to find among your alumna, any actress of the stature of NARGIS, MEENA KUMARI, MADHUBALA, GEETA BALI, VYJAYANTIMALA, WAHEEDA REHMAN, REKHA or KAJOL. And you people are talking about the calibre of Gajendra Chauhan.

I appeal to the alumnus of FTII to first become a world-class actor and then try to be an activist. The most important FTII alumnus and your biggest inspiration NASEERUDDIN SHAH is busy doing “world-class” ( ? ) films like “Sona Spa” and ” Jackpot” and you people are pontificating on the calibre of Shri Gajendra Chauhan and threatening Shri Narendra Modi.

And now a word for failed ex students of FTII. You have no business to meddle in the affairs of your alma mater if you are still struggling to make a mark. No one needs your activism. You roam around in the alleys of Mumbai with stinking body, wilting faces, faded attires and dead and gloomy eyes. I pity your rancid existence and failed journey of life. The government of the day doesn’t need or seek your approval. Leave your hubris. You are not doing any favour to us or humanity if you are an ex students of FTII.

Let me make it clear that your agitation is politically motivated. All the right thinking people know it. If it is not so, why people like Anand Patwardhan and other known left-liberals are joining your band wagon? Why students of JNU [ Jawahar Lal Nehru University ] , a breeding ground of leftist and pseudo seculars, are joining your protest? What stake have they in the FTII?

Instead of protesting against Gajendra Chauhan, try to check the deterioration in the quality of the institute. May I demand to know why “for a 3 year programme, there have been students floating around the campus since 2008? May be they will graduate only when their creative juices start flowing.[ verbatim quote from Hindustan Times – Dated June 17, 2015 – Page 11 / also read the editorial ” The World’s not a stage at the FTII – Page 12]

You resist every change and want to run the institute as per your whims and fancies. When UPA appointed committee suggested running the institute on public-private partnership, you people protested. When UPA tried to make the syllabus more contemporary, you started indefinite strike. UPA government headed by Congress was not saffronising the institute. So it is clear that protests and strikes are in your DNA.

Dear alumnus, if you feel or suspect that the appointment of Shri Gajendra Chauhan is a conspiracy to saffronise FTII, I suggest that you should learn to live with it as soon as possible. It will be better for your future, your health and your well-being.

We have seen enough of your hubris. We have tolerated enough of your pseudo intellectual hypocrisy. It is time to say, ” ENOUGH IS ENOUGH “.

I am not a sweet-talker. So I know that somewhere they were rubbed the wrong way . I also feel their attachment to some acting trainers , who claim to be the re-incarnation of Constantine Stanislavski and are sweeter than any sweet delicacy on this earth . Such students are free from any obligation from my side. GOD BLESS THEM ! ]

My journey continues without such students . It marches ahead without their support . It flourishes despite their criticism and false propaganda . For the full understanding of my body of work in 2013 – 2014 & 2014 – 2015, please watch the 05 videos posted below :

One Year of Modi & A Blind Arun Shourie


DSC01182

 

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           MAY 12, 2015           06.20,  P.M.

 

Narendra Modi government will be completing one year in office on May 25th, 2015. To commemorate the occasion, there are many articles and several unsolicited advises for Narendra Modi in various newspapers and TV channels. All the critics assume as if he is not Narendra Modi, the hugely successful Chief Minister of Gujarat for 12 long years, but a school kid and knows nothing about politics. Therefore he should be advised about governance.

Every government of the day is prone to criticism and analysis. People should criticize, scrutinize and put forward suggestions for good governance. Some friends and well-wishers of Narendra Modi are rightly doing so.

There are some enemies also. These secular, Left-Liberal, Nehruvian socialists are his political opponents and a group of journalists, known in Social Media as PRESSTITUTES. Congress leaders and leaders of other parties are hellbent that this government must fail and a discredited Narendra Modi should be banished from New Delhi and live there after in perpetual disgrace. PRESSTITUTES are helping them in this endeavour.

And there are FRENEMIES [ Friends in his presence + Enemies in his absence ] also. In the garb of forwarding constructive critique, they are dishing out biased, highly opinionated and one-sided, false stories. These disgruntled lot want to defame Narendra Modi and his government at any cost because they are not entertained by him and are not getting anything from this government. Arun Shourie, for sure, is one of them. He is the kingpin of Narendra Modi’s FRENEMIES.

Shourie can’t see national and international press writings about Modi government. He seems to be unaware of the views of the world leaders about PM Modi and the international accolades he is getting. Though,he praises Modi government’s foreign policy, but still finds faults with it.

Arun Shourie is highly critical about the economic policy orientation of Modi government. He forgets MAKE IN INDIA campaign. He is oblivious of JAN DHAN YOJANA / JAN SURAKSHA YOJANA . MAKE IN INDIA is for the industry and gigantic enterprises. JAN DHAN / JAN SURAKSHA schemes are for the poor populace. Thus Modi government is taking care of all the sections and segments of Indian society.

Shourie doesn’t care about the statistics provided by government or independent sources, but has gumption to come on national television and hurl unsubstantiated charges and proffer it as critique. He certainly has a hidden agenda.

Last week I wrote a blog denouncing his dishonesty. Here is the link

Arun Shourie , A Dishonest Intellectual

 

It gives point by point answer to his 10 points charge sheet against PM Modi. In the present blog I am giving data of PM Modi’s achievements in the field of foreign and economic affairs. All the facts are taken from the twitter-handles of eminent twitter activists. Never-happened-before-achievements are here for everyone to see.

It is not for nothing that BJP [ Bharatiya Janata Party ] is now the largest, biggest party of the world. BJP now has 10 crore+ members. Though Arun Shourie is critical of Amit Shah also.

Today as I am about to post the blog, I just noticed a new tweet about 1 Year of Narendra Modi and 60 Years of Congress Scams. I am posting it here :

I am not a famous journalist like Arun Shourie. I am not a world-famous intellectual. I am an ordinary citizen of India. If I can see all the above mentioned trends, why can’t Arun Shourie? If I can read all the statistics, why can’t Arun Shourie? It means he has an agenda. He is aggrieved that he is not getting any importance from Modi government. So he is venting out his frustration. It is the case of sour grapes.

On behalf of all the students & staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Merchandise, I would love to see a thoroughly exposed Arun Shourie. 

May he face the ignominy he so rightly deserves.

Arun Shourie , A Dishonest Intellectual


DSC01182

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           MAY 06, 2015           01.05 A.M.

I used to respect Arun Shourie a lot. As a journalist he was a crusader. He unearthed many scams during Indira Gandhi regime. But being an able journalist is another thing and being an administrator is totally different.

I was perplexed when Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee inducted him in his ministry as Dis-investment Minister. When a party wins an election and forms government, it is assumed that many loyal, old and dedicated workers will be rewarded. Therefore when a rank outsider like Arun Shourie was given a post in the Vajpayee government, it was baffling and a bit disturbing.

My fears were proven right when I read about Arun Shourie’s latest interview. What he said to Karan Thapar, was not a critique of NDA 2. It was his frustration of not getting birth in Narendra Modi government. I am not privy to many things but I can answer his charges point by point.

Let me clarify that he is not a BJP ideologue as claimed by many journalists. He was a rank outsider, chosen by Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee to serve the government. It is a common norm in USA. But This is India. Here people care for their own benefit, their own power and their own well-being. So induction of this rank opportunist in the Vajpayee cabinet was a mistake.

Let us have a look at the charges of Shourie. My answer is given in blue along with every point :

————————————————————–

Shourie slams Narendra Modi: 10 things he said

IndiaToday.in  New Delhi, May 1, 2015 | UPDATED 11:38 IST

In an exclusive interview with Headlines Today’s Karan Thapar on the first anniversary of BJP-led NDA government on Friday, Arun Shourie, one of the most influential BJP ideologues during the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government, criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for poor handling of the Indian economy and turning a blind eye to the attacks on minorities by the right-wing groups. SEE FULL VIDEO

Here are the 10 things that Arun Shourie said about Modi government in the interview: Full text of Arun Shourie’s interview

1) The government lacks clear thinking. The government has good ideas but poor in implementation. There is a big gap between perception and promise, and projection and performance. The government must become low profile.

My Answer : Modi government has “good ideas” and it lacks “clear thinking”. How both things are possible at the same time? Modi government is going to complete 1 year in this month. How on earth anyone can “implement”  all the promises in 1 year. Shourie wants the government to perform and yet want it to become “low profile”.

2) Modi’s economic policy is directionless. There is no big picture in economy policy. Modi’s focus on the economy is like a CM. He should focus more on policy instead of projects.

My Answer : Shourie wants Modi to become “low profile” and yet wants to see “big picture” regarding the economy. Economic policies are not going to deliver results in just 1 year.

3) Modi’s foreign policy is a success but India has to follow-up on the MoUs. Modi needs to execute policies quickly. China is a principal challenge for India. India’s foreign policy is getting reoriented. Modi has to move much faster. Nobody is waiting for us. The US is already feeling impatient. Keeping Sushma Swaraj on the margins is wrong.

My Answer : Shourie praises Narendra Modi for successful foreign policy and yet alleges that MEA Sushma Swaraj ji is marginalised. How can any foreign policy be successful without MEA?

4) Lack of clarity in government on Pakistan. Need a steadier gaze towards Pakistan.

My Answer : What a logic Shourie! Foreign policy of India is successful, yet no clarity on Pakistan. Only a biased person , who is claiming as an intellectual can give this kind of brilliant(?) logic.

5) Investment has not picked up. The government can’t ignore India inc warnings. The government needs to wake up. Investors still have hope but the industrial sector is waiting for concrete moves. The growth claims are only to make headlines and the government only wants to manage headlines.

My Answer : Again a brilliant (?) logic! “Investors still have hope But…….growth claims are only to make headlines”. He conveniently forgets what Ratan Tata said about the government.

6) Uncertainty exists over tax regime. Tax regime is confused. The government is alienating the investors. It is backtracking on tax decisions.

My Answer : GST legislation is about to be passed. Consensus achieved in 12 months, which alluded us for 12 long years.Various other reforms are about to happen. What else can you desire in 1 year?

7) India needs labour reforms. There was no need for land bill controversy. Ordinances were ill-advised. They led to disruptions. BJP supported the previous Land Bill. Allies were not taken into confidence. Modi must embrace the opposition. No reform can take place without the oppositions’ support. The opposition is ganging up against Modi and the BJP is frightening others.

My Answer : Shourie seems to be delusional. He alleges, “Ordinances were ill-advised. They led to disruptions.” But he forgets that Ordinance was promulgated because there were disruptions. Shourie wants to twist the happenings of the Rajya Sabha.

8) Vacancies in critical posts are worrying. Don’t know why the posts are not filled. Vital institutions are suffering. Institutions are being starved to death. Institutions are being devalued.

My Answer : There is a thing in governance which is called and is known as PREROGATIVE. It is government’s prerogative to fill the posts. It is none of Shourie’s business.

9) The government must respond to minority fears. Govt has failed on assuring minorities. No response to concern of minorities. Alienating minorities is dangerous. The Christians are rightfully upset. PM should speak out often. Modi must speak on critical issues. Modi silent on moral questions.

My Answer : During elections Narendra Modi said and still says ” SABKA SAATH, SABKA VIKAS ” . All the act of attacks on Christians have turned out to be petty crimes by criminals. I don’t need to give details. Shourie must be knowing them. If he doesn’t know , then he is ignorant and shouldn’t be taken seriously. As for Muslims are concerned, there were few unwarranted utterances by fringe elements, which were duly condemned by the BJP.

10) The monogrammed suit was inexplicable, a critical mistake. Don’t understand why he wore it.

My Answer : The last point clarifies the dishonesty of Shourie. First of all , it was a gift. Narendra Modi wore it for just one day. It was subsequently auctioned and the amount was deposited in the treasury. It is old practise of the Prime Minister. He auctions all the gift he gets and the proceeds are deposited in the government treasury and is later on used for some charitable purposes. It is a settled case. But Shourie rakes it up again. It clears that his intention is not to give a critique, but he dishes out his venom because he fails to find a place in the union cabinet.

Along with all the students & staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Merchandise, I denounce this dishonest journalist turned intellectual called Arun Shourie. People like him are dangerous. They work on an agenda and give it a different colour to hoodwink gullible public. But if he can denounce Babasaheb Ambedkar, then Narendra Modi is an easy target.

Shourie should be denounced with all the possible way and people like him should never find any place either in the party or in the government.

 [ I have taken the excerpts of Shourie’s interview from the website of India Today. I express gratitude. ]
