Independence Day

Published

on

British Indians who have never been proud of their own history, culture, civilization, technological achievements, and their own truly nationalist leaders, will celebrate the 65th Independence day on 15 August. True Indians who feed the British Indians still slave for Rs 28 per day, as officially conceded. Rupees 27 means they are poor, one rupee extra means they are not. British Indians have parity with European lower middle classes; the Indians still eke out a living if lucky. Many die of hunger, but we must unfurl the flag and sing the national anthem, half naked, hungry, with no toilets and no drinking water and nowhere to go.

Technically we gained freedom, but not liberty. We could unfurl the tricolour and sing our national anthem instead of God Save the King. Indian leaders of pre-independence did not know the nature of British imperium, power that is wielded to control others to do their dirty work. Over hundreds of blundering years fighting with each other until 1945, the ruling European elite learned that it is better to keep peace there and export wars across the world. The muscular military of the USA would do the job for them; European elite then became the Chief Operating Officer of the global mayhem with British, French, German and Italians providing the muscle power.

Has any Indian ‘secularist’ or even one historian asked of Saxe Coburg Gotha clan to free Britain? Britain remains a colony and yet the British feel proud that they gave us ‘independence’ in 1947? Do they remember that Franklin Roosevelt told the British Government that their ‘unwillingness to concede the right of self-government to the Indians’ would cause a public uproar in America? [1] That too after years of haggling by Gandhi? Has any historian, economist, sociologist, and media person asked similar question: ‘Why must India be ruled by the Nehru-Gandhi clan? TINA prevents mind-controlled slaves worldwide to ask the right questions, while the imperium funds convenient secularists and destroys the true ones. Power manifests itself in many ways.

On every ‘independence day’ school kids must stand quietly in the rain while yet another leader delivers yet another moronic speech. Imbeciles and former civil servants of global drug peddlers and banksters are controlled alike by the Saxe Coburg Gotha. They are told what to say while the bands play different versions of Colonel Boogie…. and clap at war crime’s evidence of ‘We came, we saw, he died….ha, ha, ha!’ [2]

Does it matter whether India sings ‘Jana Gana Mana’ or God Save the Queen’?

Decades later of independence, even the creativity of Bollywood beat the intellectuals in mental slavery with their ‘Halle Dil Gaa ke Sunayenge, Yeh jahan rangeen banayenge,’ sung to the tune of Ken Annakin and Andrew Morton’s theme tune of ‘The Longest Day.’[3] The do-gooder instinct is not a genetic speciality of Europeans. Every nation, every society, every tribe, every religion has far more do-gooders than do-badders. So, the question is this: how did the Europeans became this planet’s only do-gooders?

How ‘independent countries’ became slaves of Europeans again

A note drafted during Eisenhower’s time [May 1959] asserted that ‘Third World’ governments would be better off under a military dictatorship or an elite, military or civilian, but selected by the US elite. The document codifies the experiences of the European ruling elite into a single document and lays down the mechanism for planetary control over people and natural resources.[4]

With the dictum ‘Arms alone do not an army make’ an entire system of subverting popular leaders, perverting democratic governments’ bureaucrats, buying off their military and civilian elite, compromising intelligentsia and subduing scribes started. There was no shortage of funds; drug money laundering had already started filling CIA’s coffer; British intelligence with longer experience guided them, being the agency of an empire where the sun never set, and drug money flowed. Criminal households of Europe, formerly below poverty line as compared to Indian and Chinese Maharajas, are today Global Elite.

Consistent with the agenda, the civilian and military human resources in the third world were targeted. Elaborate systems of identifying future leaders in politics, academia, bureaucracy, diplomacy and ‘civil society’ [aka NGOs] and silencing the contrarians have been in place for six decades. Small nations were simply blown to bits, millions slaughtered in bigger ones. The Anglo-American cabal has the dubious distinction of killing a million a year since 1899 on average.

South Asia conquered

Perhaps the first test of this strategy was played out in South Asia. India got a PM that had no respect for India; Pakistan’s democracy was destroyed within four years of independence. Liaquat Ali Khan was assassinated. “Cartridges recovered from Liaquat’s body were American-made, especially for use of high-ranking American officers, usually not available in market… prove that real culprit behind assassin is the US Government,” reported a major Left wing newspaper from Bhopal in October 1951. The office of the Secretary of State told the Delhi Embassy to ignore. [6] Other speculations were that US Embassy contacted Pashtoonistan’ leaders, observing Liaquat their only hurdle, and assured them if some of them could kill Liaquat, US would undertake to establish Pashtoonistan by 1952. It is all panning out in 2012 with the complicity of Indian leaders.

In 1947 August, the Baluchistan’s Kalat [Parliament] delegation came to Delhi. Discussions with Baloch activists and researchers establish that “Baluchistan was an independent and sovereign state and its status was different from princely states. Its relations with the British government was based on mutual agreements and treaties directly with the British Parliament.” The leaders came to Delhi to tell the Transitional leaders, particularly Nehru and Abul Kalam Azad, that all the Agreements prior to 1876 shall be annulled and that “Kalat State will be independent on August 5, 1947, enjoying the same status as it originally held in 1838, having friendly relations with its neighbours”.[7] The agreement was reached but Pakistani army occupied Baluchistan and Pakistan was then a democracy. No one was a PM then; they were minions.

The contours of the breakup of Pakistan were already laid down; it was just a matter of time when. By 1956 military dictatorship had taken over Pakistan and the 1919 agenda of Churchill to retain full control of the oil producing regions of West Asia was firmly in place with Israel on the western flank; two artificial nations to control global energy resources. Honest army officers in Pakistan say that if India had not been divided, it would be difficult for the western powers to grab West Asia. From 1956 onward, some of the worst characters from Pakistan were posted in East Pakistan as military governors that eventually led to the infamous genocide and emergence of Bangladesh. With millennia old shared history and culture, India was split into three nations, at logger heads with each other, the leaders playing dirty games as slaves of the Western powers.

Nepal had nominal freedom because the Treaty of Sugauli was somehow imposed by the East India Company despite losing the Anglo-Nepalese war, which remains a mystery. The person who could have colluded with the Company could have been none other than the King and his courtiers. Nepal, as I wrote before, may become a dismembered nation the way things are going on with Soros-funded identity federalism that was perfected in Yugoslavia.[8]

Perhaps this is the first time in known history that a loser in war imposed a humiliating treaty on the victors, taking away the vast food growing regions from Uttarakhand to Sikkim, including all the northern areas of UP and Bihar. The Nepalese have a point when they ask for territories ceded to the East India Company to be returned exactly as the Kalat demanded that annulled treaties should restore the status before the British occupation.

Bangladesh became independent in 1971. It was one of the few defeats of the Anglo-US alliance, defeat in terms of defeat of global supremacy because they wanted it their way to kill as many, driven by the foolishness of Pakistani military leaders and desires of the controllers in Delhi. Smarting under that ‘insult,’ Mujibur Rahman was assassinated and the country soon came under control of military dictators and now there is some hazy democracy but that is a facade.

The mass mind control strategy in full flow in South Asia becomes clear from the fact that Pakistani children and youth born after 1971 don’t even remember that Bangladesh was East Pakistan and British Indian kids are growing up on Coca Cola and Kellog’s cornflakes. When Pakistani youth revolts it will not be a coloured revolution, but a mighty clean up of the mess created by these leaders. Ditto for Nepal; but Indian youth will not. They are part of the mind-controlled agenda of landing a man on the moon and exploring water on Mars, when the entire water resource rich India is now parched.

Controlling the world once again

A powerful network of information gathering and analysis is active. Their economic intelligence units gather data on engineers, doctors, scientists, bureaucrats, judges, businessmen and military officers. Only the identified ones are feted; media is told to write about them, eventually elevate them to the position of demigods. Those who have the smart sense to see through the facade are demonized [Assad is the latest since 1950s], discredited [Dominique Strauss-Kahn] or ousted [like General VK Singh] on whatever charges they can concoct.

Funds are routed via powerful tax-free trusts and foundations owned or controlled by the banksters directly or indirectly to destabilise societies, nations, and entire continents. Amazing that George Soros, who made his billions in hedge funds, today controls the UN-Framework Team, the apex body that now guides all UN specialised agencies for one world government and global plundering and corporatisation of all resources. They are working to dismember all UN member countries including India, Pakistan, Nepal, Burma, and Sri Lanka in South Asia and China and Russia.

All South Asian countries have been systematically enslaved and this is known to their national intelligence agencies. Unfortunately for them there are rogue groups within each.

The banksters’ control Agenda 21 too, a soft one to con every government to help save the planet, with their own NGOs slaving for them, through the collectivist control over natural resources like Park areas, water, air, land, forests, rivers, name it and they control it. In Kenya, water is more expensive than beer.

They work in extremely subtle ways, using methods perfected by the Tavistock Institute and the RAND Corporation. Whilst strategic decisions are taken by the rich-club, the operational aspects are executed by the UN system, the foundations, INGOs and the Pentagon through the innocuous sounding USAID, now a key player in the never ending war on terror. Unseen hands guide their work and ensure that all national governments fall in line exactly as the elite desire.

Leaders who think they can do things for the people because they have the people’s mandate face economic chaos or are summarily removed and there is a consistent pattern since WWII. The ability of the elite working through their intelligence agencies and able to call the US military might ensures physical destruction of any society at will. All leaders, elected, selected or nominated must be identified first and must serve these elite.

The deviously enforced ‘group think’ on issues of mutual interest has ensured the presence of US and NATO forces in 130 out of 190 sovereign nations and unmolested operations from around 1000 known military bases and another thousand unknown lily-pads worldwide. That could not have happened without the connivance, coercion or plain bribery of third world leaders.

Many writers say this imperium will crumble because it has outstretched itself. Under present conditions it will go on. What they have done is to create a large number of drug addicts in their own countries; over 22 million in Europe and about the same number in the US. That gives them 45 to 50 million stable consumers for heroin, cocaine, amphetamines and other ‘illegal’ drugs. Ten dollar snort gives them 500 million per day; for ten days it is 5 billion and so on…

The European royalty and the banksters became ‘the elite’ because they controlled the opium trade into China and later drug control worldwide. With profits from world drug trade worth $500 -700 billion annually, the clandestine operations do not need budgetary support of any European nation, just as British colonial expansion did not need tax-payers’ support because every penny needed was extorted from India. Exactly the same way, they extort money from drug addicts in their own countries. Plundering has always been a self-financing, highly lucrative business: the final price of any man on earth is the price of a bullet.

It has now become extremely efficient because the rate of return far exceeds any risk or investment; the efficiency comes from a matrix of people control agenda. And people are too much enamoured with Indian cricket, European football and what not…

In this globalization of criminality, control and impoverishment, if any one institution can be singled out as having performed outstandingly it is the banksters. Armies may lose a battle or even a war, never a European Elite controlled bank. They make money on both sides. It was the European elite who bank rolled South Asia’s enslavement. They have decided to destroy every nation, every country including the United States of America, every livelihood, and reduce the dignity and self respect of peoples everywhere to ‘comfortable level of poverty.’ The sheer depth and breadth of this imperialist assault on the planet’s people is staggering.

When the band plays India’s national anthem on its 65th anniversary, all those who sacrificed their lives will toss and turn in their afterlives to see a man unfurling the Indian flag from the Red Fort who sold this country off back to the descendents of Lord [thief] Clive.

Veteran Ottanthullal Artist Geethanandan Passes Away During Performance

Acclaimed Ottanthullal artiste Kalamandalam Geethanandan passed away while delivering a performance on Sunday at Avittathur, Kerala.

Acclaimed Ottanthullal artiste Kalamandalam Geethanandan passed away while delivering a performance on Sunday at Avittathur, Kerala.

The 58-year-old theatre artiste and film actor collapsed on stage in the middle of the act. He was given first aid and rushed to the hospital. However, he could not be saved.

Geethanandan had given more than 5,000 stage shows since the age of nine. He became the teacher of Ottanthullal at Kerala Kalalamandalam in 1983 and remained the head of the department for over 25 years. His contribution to Kerala’s classical theatre art form is immense.

He was also the first Ottanthullal artiste to perform in France in 1984, according to media reports.

Geethanandan had also worked in the Malayalam film industry. He made his big screen acting debut with Kamaladalam, which had Mohanlal in the lead role, in 1992. He also acted in films like Thooval Kottaram, Manasinakkare, Narendran Magan Jayakanthan Vaga, among others.

Malayalam actor Kavya Madhavan learnt Ottanthullal under Geethanandan’s guidance. Celebrities and high-profile people from different walks of life expressed their condolences on Twitter.

“The legendary Ottanthullal artiste Shri Kalamandalam Geethanandan passes away on stage, right in the middle of his performance in Avitatthur temple in Kerala! What a dream death for any performing artiste! Prayers and condolences! Atma Shanti!,” tweeted author and art critic Veejay Sai.

Ottanthulal is a classical dance form from Kerala, performed by very few artists now. Thullal, a solo performance, based on poetry combines dance and recitations, is one of the oldest art forms of Kerala. It finds its origins in the Natya Shastra, belonging to the 2nd century B.C. Verses of the renowned 18th century poet Kunchan Nambiar are often used for Ottanthulal performances.
