When Even Insult Had Class

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JULY 17 , 2013           00.15 A.M.
Since past 8 / 9 months , for no fault of mine , I have become target of abuse on various social micro-blogging sites . There are only 2 / 3 people but they do it with religious fervour and with crusader’s zeal .
When you strive to do something worthwhile and chart a different path , insecure and inferior people become jealous . They feel threatened and so they try to belittle you . They attack you with all the squalor at their command . They threaten you with all the venom accumulated since ages . They try to put you down so that they can claim , ” look , he is down and out . He is nothing . He is insignificant .”
These uncouth zombies resort to unparliamentary language and behaviour at slightest pretext . Abuse becomes their most potent weapon . Filth becomes their armour . Cuss words become their shield . And aggression becomes their war strategy .
I have only one weapon to counter such people and their innuendoes . It is silence . And silence is golden . I have remained silent despite gravest provocations . Even my son was attacked and abused recently. If I have to fight someone , I would never ever attack their sons , daughters , parents or relatives . But those , who were not taught or seen decent behaviour in their entire life , can do this with impunity . They can use cuss words . They can use filthy language . They can resort to falsehood to remain relevant . They can spread canards for self-interest . They can gang up with equally despicable cohorts to denigrate you . They can stoop to any level because there is no level .
Suddenly one day I came across this posting of Major Retd. Pravin Singh on the facebook . I knew some of these incidents earlier but I had forgotten them . I am reproducing them with gratitude .
When Even Insult Had Class
***********************************
These glorious insults are from an era before the English language became boiled down to 4-letter words.
A member of Parliament to Disraeli: “Sir, you will either die on the gallows or of some unspeakable disease.” “That depends, Sir,” said Disraeli, “whether I embrace your policies or your mistress.”
“He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire.” – Winston Churchill
I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure.” Clarence Darrow
“He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary.” – William Faulkner (about Ernest Hemingway)
“Thank you for sending me a copy of your book; I’ll waste no time reading it.” – Moses Hadas
I didn’t attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.” Mark Twain”He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends..” – Oscar Wilde“I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend, if you have one.” – George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill.

“Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second … if there is one.” – Winston Churchill, in response.

“I feel so miserable without you; it’s almost like having you here.” -Stephen Bishop

“I’ve just learned about his illness. Let’s hope it’s nothing trivial.” –Irvin S. Cobb

“He is not only dull himself; he is the cause of dullness in others.” -Samuel Johnson

“He is simply a shiver looking for a spine to run up.” – Paul Keating (MY favorite, MJ)

“In order to avoid being called a flirt, she always yielded easily.” – Charles, Count Talleyrand

“His mother should have thrown him away and kept the stork..” – Mae West

“Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.” – Oscar Wilde

“He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp-posts… for support rather than illumination.” – Andrew Lang (1844-1912)

“I’ve had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn’t it.” – Groucho

Alas , these days the above mentioned parliamentary taunts and sarcasm is missing in people . An uncouth sycophant , who works as a factotum for his equally uncultured master, when reprimanded by some students for abusing me , said with his abominable toothy grin , ”  I don’t care for age . If someone was born 20/30/40 years before my birth , its none of my fault . “

Yes , it is none of their fault . They were not trained in civilized behaviour either by their family or by their teachers . They are not accustomed to decent behaviour . May be they have never ever respected their elders in their entire life . Yes , they are not cultured by tradition . May be it is in their blood . May be it is in the family . May be it is the trait which they have inherited .

I pity them . I try to ignore them . They should be avoided like Biblical Satan . They should be quarantined in some remote corner of this terra firma . They should be banished from our existence because their knowledge of English is questionable . Their vocabulary is limited . Their upbringing is doubtful . Their decency is untraceable . Their behaviour is crass . And their education is peripheral . They need sympathy and not anger . They should be pardoned because they are yet to evolve as human beings . For them I must quote Jesus Christ . When he was being crucified by Roman soldiers , he famously said , ” Father , forgive them , for they do not know what they do . “

FULL EDITNG STUDIO

NEWS LETTER

I take care that students and staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters  , should learn to respect their elders . They should be cultured and civilized . VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Theatre would also like to affirm that uncouth and indecent behaviour is not going to be our trait ever .

For those who are abusive , who are uncouth , who are not civilized enough and who are not so decent , I again quote Jesus Christ , ” Father , forgive them , for they do not know what they do . “

One must remember famous saying of Tomas Eloy Martinez of Argentina – ” Whenever there is a hero , there is a traitor.”

Lok Sabha Election 2014 : [ 1 ]


DSC01182

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           APRIL 14 , 2013           10.40 P.M.

As the scene is becoming interesting , as the water is becoming muddy , as the temperature is rising menacingly , as the players are getting ready for a fight to finish , as leaders are being chosen to lead  , as the respective armies are getting ready to wager their lives , as the country is getting ready for a spectacular drama , as the world is watching with anxiety , let us start looking at the current scenario in our country.

Lok Sabh or parliamentary election is due in 2014 . But preparation has already started . Over the years I have watched that media ; print and electronic both – proffer some fascinating observations . Some of it becomes reality and some fail miserably . In recent times comments are being made on various social media sites also . Anonymous netizens are posting their views on micro -blogging sites and are making the scene murkier . Already precarious political scenario is becoming more unpredictable .

I will try to save all  the poll related writings till the election results are out in 2014 . It would be very interesting to read all these articles after the results are out .

 

English: Nitish Kumar

Nitish Kumar : The Chief Minister of Bihar (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

The first in the series is not a blog in real sense of the term . These are tweets being re-produced here from the twitter-handle of Shri Raghunath AS . He brilliantly exposes claims being made by Shri Nitish Kumar , the Chief Minister of Bihar , about the growth of Bihar .

  1. Phenomenal growth record of NiKu: In top 10 states with highest labor force participation rate, Bih not there.ChG[447], Guj[402] feature

  2. Phenomenal growth record of NiKu: In top 10 states with Teachers Pupil ratio at Primary levels in India Bih Tops at 80!! Guj not in top10

  3. Phenomenal growth record of NiKu: In top 10 states with highest enrolments in Medicine In India Bih not there. Kar, Guj, Odisha, MP feature

  5. Phenomenal growth record of NiKu: In top 10 states with highest Biz Schools in India, Bih not there. Kar, MP, Guj feature.

  16. MP that pulled itself quietly out from Bimaru status, is on fastest pace. It’s CM is not making as much fuss as Bimaar Bihar CM is making

Till 2014 I will keep on writing blogs and sometimes will re-produce interesting stories from various social networking sites . And will keep on doing this till Election 2014 is over . I feel that VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as ,  Vidur’s Kreating Charakters  , is not only an acting institute , it also has some social and national duties and obligations .

I may not be running the most famous acting school of Mumbai , or the most famous acting institute of India , or the most famous acting academy of bollywood , or the most famous acting institute of the world , I may be small and very insignificant , but I thought it proper to offer my views on this important matter .

[ This blog is not entirely written by me . I have re-produced relevant tweets from the twitter-handle of Shri Raghunath AS . I am indebted and express my gratitude .]
