Remembering today, on his birth anniversary, a man who gave birth to an ideological cult responsible for the murder of 100 million people.
"Who is a communist? One who reads Marx. Who is an anti-communist? One who understands Marx."
Mao. Great Leap Forward. Killed 45 million in 4 years flat. #Communism…
"Deaths have benefits. They can fertilise the ground." - Chairman Mao (ref: Mao: The Unknown Story; Chang, Halliday)
When Communism resulted in Cannibalism. (ref: Mao: The Unknown Story; Chang, Halliday)
Mao, the very same Mao who KILLED upwards of 63 million, OF HIS OWN people, is WORSHIPPED by some here. THIS is the true face of Communism.
The one book the Communists wish had NEVER been written, is the one book that MUST be read.…
Why Do People Become Communists? STUNNINGLY brilliant piece, by @jeffreyatucker. A must-read. (via @meritocratic)…
Typical. Red when can't pay the bill; Blue when over the hill. #UKElection2017…
Borrowed the hammer, only to nail it.
BBC: Three quarters of Venezuelans have lost on average 9 kgs in the last year. A third are eating two or fewer meals per day. #COMMUNISM
Of what Dr Ambedkar wrote on Islam (…) replacing the word 'Islam' with 'The Left' makes for an interesting reading.
Believe me when I say that the Left is a disease for which there is NO cure. You CANNOT change them. But you can EXPOSE them.
Nothing typifies communists and Communism more. A fortnightly magazine commemorating October Revolution in December. Late by two months.
SICKENING, but entirely expected, behaviour of Left activists and Editors towards their colleague at the Wire when she was assaulted by the wrong mob.

I repeat: there exists NO cure for this vile cult. So be careful. Don't catch the infection.…
It is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE for me to keep relations with the communists. I am an implacable ENEMY of the Communists. - BR Ambedkar

Dr Ambedkar on Communism. Direct. DEVASTATING.

Do read my column:…
Thus spake EMS Namboodiripad, founder of CPI(M), on Dr Ambedkar's Constitution.

He wanted to WRECK IT FROM WITHIN. (source: Kafila)
EMS Namboodiripad, founder of CPI(M): Caste System is a SUPERIOR economic organisation. Working Class is SUPERIOR to the Dalits.

No wonder Dr Ambedkar detested the Communists and their anti-science cult. "I am an implacable ENEMY of the Communists."…
Here it is, STRAIGHT from the horse's mouth. Comrade Sitaram Yechury: "When I entered St. Stephen's, you had on the chapel written, CHAIRMAN MAO IS OUR CHAIRMAN. 13 students were expelled. Those were the GREAT Maoists of the time. Some of them are EMINENT academicians today."
SHOCKING. CPI(M) passed a resolution HAILING the Tiananmen Square Massacre.

These same Communists supposedly fight for Human Rights. 10,454 people were KILLED in the Tiananmen Massacre. CPI(M) hailed it. VILE. (h/t @NivePrasad; ref Pax Indica, Tharoor)…
This man's party, the CPI(M), passed a resolution HAILING the Tiananmen Square crackdown in which 10,454 innocents were ruthlessly MURDERED.

THIS is the true face of Communism. LOOK at it. REMEMBER it.
China has put ONE MILLION Muslims in internment camps. Muslims are being FORCED to eat pork. (…)

The US has demanded sanctions against China. (…)

And yet, Mr Yechury & CPI(M) remain SILENT. Why? COMMIE EKTA.…
The Lost Revolution and the Gandhians with grenade-launchers. A breathtakingly BRILLIANT essay by @KanchanGupta on the curse that continues to consume - Communism; and how it is the seed that ultimately sprouted Urban Maoism. Again, BRILLIANT.…
For all those who emerged from our Education system with degrees in the Humanities but did not become communists, leftists, illogical, entitled dunderheads, I have nothing but RESPECT.

You must have read the same biased books, had the same blockheads as peers; HOW did you do it?

A clarification within 3 hours of the explosive Hollande quote, when normally it would take weeks. Tells you the seriousness of the allegation. Much more clarity is needed, both from the Indian and the French governments, including documents that prove otherwise. This. Is. Big.
Only one story could begin the primetime tonight, that of President Hollande - the man who signed the Rafale deal with @narendramodi - and his EXPLOSIVE claim. Only one.

@ndtv, @IndiaToday carried it. Good on you.
@timesnow, @republic, and @CNNnews18 did not. SHAME on you.
True. But this isn't the point right now. After all, remember Mukesh's infamous words - "Congress toh apni dukaan hai"? The point right now is to ascertain if BJP Anil ki dukaan hai. GOI must disprove Hollande's claim at once and with documentary evidence.

You have GOT to be joking. Please tell me this is fake news; the ludicrous banners photoshopped. Have to be.

What @Iyervval said in his Konark clip was CLEARLY in sarcasm & jest, evident from his very next tweet where he admitted he was joking.

Can't believe this is happening.
These fruitcakes don't know who they are dealing with. @Iyervval would probably egg them on to make sure he is jailed and stuffed inside a striped jumpsuit. Then he will tweet on the nuances of prison cuisine from inside.

STOP this nonsense and get to work. #IStandWithAbhijit
Just heard that @Iyervval has been detailed by @DelhiPolice. He isn't answering his phone. Going to Nizamuddin police station to enquire about this UNBELIEVABLE happening. Stay safe, Abhijit, all of us are with you.

Stop. And Ask.

Hullo, @nsitharaman, stop! And answer my question.
1 day. 1 lac views. Coming up tonight, another explosive #StopAndAsk.

We, the people, are the real masters. We can stop our sevaks and we can ask them anything.

Had requested two Congress leaders to give their two minutes for a #StopAndAsk. Unfortunately they had to decline - Mr S was travelling while Mr M was busy in court appearances. Will keep trying.

“I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.” (1 Timothy 2:12; The Holy Bible)

“Slaves! Submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the cruel.” (1 Peter 2:18; The Holy Bible)
If a man rapes a woman not engaged, he must pay 50 silver pieces to her father. Then he must marry her. (Deuteronomy 22:28-29; The Holy Bible)

The man wasn't created for the woman; the woman was created for the man. (I Corinthians 11:8-9; The Holy Bible)
If a man lies with a married woman in the city, stone her too, to death, as she cried not. (Deuteronomy 22:22-24; Bible)

Wives! Submit yourselves unto your husbands. Husband is the head of wife like Christ is the head of church. (Ephesians 5:22-24; Bible)

Our Kerala needs our help. Just contributed to the Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund (Transaction id: 822715002811). I stand, as do all Indians, with Mr Pinarayi Vijayan, in this difficult hour. Every little helps.
In times of great calamity, all Indians come together, irrespective of language, religion, or ideology.

Also come together in such difficult times those who dream of nothing else but the break up of India, along linguistic, religious, or ideological lines.

IGNORE the latter.
Eighty-four and a half years ago to the day, a DEVASTATING earthquake of magnitude 8.4 struck Bihar. Upwards of 30,000 died. One man called it a DIVINE CHASTISEMENT sent by God for our SINS.

That man was Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of our Nation.

Such thinking is BEYOND VILE.

Now reading @gchikermane's 70 Policies that Shaped India - 1947 to 2017, Independence to $2.5 Trillion. Jargon-free and meticulously researched (700 citations), this promises to be the go-to indispensable guide for policy-makers and laymen alike. PDF:…
On to Chapter 10 of @gchikermane's utterly engrossing book - frank admission: I never thought reading government policies could be so riveting - I pause, and reflect on this particular DISASTER - Air India nationalisation. If only @narendramodi could be gifted this book. If only.
The brilliant economist and friend @harshmadhusudan said recently that India would be a $ 12 trillion economy in ten years. Nothing would please me more, but I sincerely doubt that.

At every crossroad to us afforded, we have taken the wrong turn. We have made a habit of it.
