Assorted Fictions

Childhood Memoir
This happened to me when I was in the 10th standard. There was girl in the nearby girl school to whom I became emotionally attached. Every morning and evening I used to rush from my school to see her go. I did not have the courage to tell her that I love her. After finishing school we parted our ways and I know nothing of what happened to her.

Rain an Epiphany
Thunder growled ferociously like an angry dog. Pink flowers lit up the sky. The sky started chanting hymns. Rain is now pouring a cuisine of delicacy. The sky is serenading the earth in sheer ecstasy. Nature is an art of rhythmic music. Cymbals are clanging; base drum is pounding; tom toms are echoing the music of beauty.

Two Idioms

COVID 19
The outbreak of the COVID 19 virus was a man made one, in the laboratories of the roguish, diabolic country China. The virus was created to destabilize the international Economy. When the shares of international companies fell, China was able to buy them at paltry prices. Many countries of Europe and Asia and America became victims of this clandestine subversion. COVID 19 as an idiom means destabilization of world economies. China should be declared as a COVID 19 thug State and all nations should embargo its goods.


Bitter to Sweet

This is an idiom I have birthed from Judaism. When the Israelites after their liberation from Egypt spend their life in the desert and started grumbling to Moses their liberator that the waters tasted bitter. Then God instructed Moses to strike the rock with a Shepherd’s Crook. When he did, the waters turned sweet. Bitter to Sweet as an Idiom means life becoming better after a period of trials and tribulations.

The Sad Plight of Indian Democracy

The BJP government of India is embarking on a mad and treacherous path by incorporating anti-democratic laws. First came the draconian law of GST were taxes were hiked to gigantic proportions. Now they have passed the Citizen Amendment Act which seeks to obliterate the democratic and secular credentials of India which is enshrined in the Indian Constitution. The BJP govt. is following the policy of divide and rule and democracy is bleeding with festering wounds. The students in various universities were conducting peaceful protests and they were mercilessly assaulted by the police. The police marched into the university library and one student has lost his eye in the ensuing riot. In many states internet connection was terminated. This shows the callous attitude of the BJP govt. in an-other-wise peaceful country. The economy is down in the dumps with the slowest GDP every recorded. The Citizenship Amendment Act is propounded to hide the tail-spin of the Indian Economy. Another outrageous decision made was to convert a mosque which was built in the 15th century to a Hindu temple as it is the birth place of Lord Ram. The Supreme Court judges who are the cronies of BJP govt. passed this macabre verdict to appease the sycophants who want to make India into Hindu Country.

For Tibet Uyghur and Hong King

Oh Fascist Fang of China,
Your obeisance
To communism
Is trite hypocrisy………
Look at how
You poison
Your people –
The Tibetans
The Uyghurs
And Hong Kong
You don’t have
The breath to
Unlock their chains
And make them
Free democracies ……
Your massacre
Their people,
You loud mouth
Their cultures…
You venom of
Fascism,
Let these regions
Have their homeland and
Experience democracy’s
Heart and soul

Will and Sovereignty

I would like to state an opinion on both Will and Sovereignty. Will is the embodiment of the human mind to think and make a rational decision. Will can be collective or individualistic. A collective will is the ethos of the making of a democracy. What is sovereignty? It refers to a nation being externally independent and internally supreme. In the present Geo-political scenario we find a lot of nations with conflicts of the collective will and sovereignty. Some nations use brutal force and the adverse result is violence and terrorism. What should be done when there is conflict between the collective will and the sovereign? Nations should leave it the will of the people through a referendum or a plebiscite.

Ham Ham

Once upon a time, there was a democratic country called HAM HAM. Democrats called Bacon ruled the country. With the passage of time, the Bacon party lost in the elections to a party which was far right and fundamentalist –called Salmon. Members of the Salmon party started persecuting people who formed a religious minority. There were two minorities—one being followers of the BOOK and the other being followers of the PROPHET. Often members of the Salmon party paraded evangelists, pastors and apostles naked on the street. They also did a dastardly deed of burning a Missionary alive with his children. The members of the Salmon party won a landslide victory by rigging the Electronic Voter Machines. Now they are planning to change the constitution of the Country. The followers of the BOOK and the Prophet will be persecuted and thrown out under their regime. The coming to power by the Salmon party shows that democracy has been defeated.

Disgruntled Ex Communist from Kerala

Kerala, God’s Own Country is a home for a flock of communist sheep. I was once an ardent follower. For many youth of Kerala, Che Guevara was an iconic figure. As I write this narrative, I feel a tinge of regret. Communism is a dead corpse. It has a bankrupt ideology. India is a galloping horse as far as Capitalism is concerned. The top echelons of the part like the Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan have themselves and their kith and Kin studying in international universities abroad have also bathed in the waters of lucrative businesses. Communism is a disguised capitalist cosmetic. Communism in Kerala benefits the rich few and marginalizes large number of its followers. Communism in Kerala is a social and political Dracula having its blood hungry fangs to impoverish its followers.

BJP

BJP is the ruling government of India a pro Hindu party. They are famous for religious intolerance and casting a net of anti-secularism. They demonetized the economy by bringing new currency notes. It is palpable that these hooligans started collecting money from the press to satisfy their greed. The top echelons of the party are immensely wealthy. BJP is a govt. that has fallen short of ideals.

The left front Communist Govt. of Kerala

Once upon a time, I had communist views and I believed that communism will establish a just society based on equality and social justice. My dream has turned stale and sour. The top leaders of the Communist and their cronies and kith and kin are clinching new business deals and the party has become corporate making a fool of followers. Communism in Kerala has become an opportunistic capitalistic beast with callous regard to social ideals.
