Puppies and dogs, unlike Congress sycophants, don't betray their homes

I speak for myself when I say that I grieved for my chocolate brown Labrador, Mishti, when he left me in February, 2007, much more than I have done for many humans. However, when I say I speak for myself, that is strictly not correct – tens of millions of people all over this planet would have empathised and sympathised with me. I soon found out that all my friends who had met this wonderful creature shared my sorrow; he had clearly left a deep imprint on them in the brief span of a few months during which he stayed with me. I am still hurting.

Therefore, I find the purported outrage of assorted humans like Javed Akhtar, Digvijay Singh et al about Narendra Modi’s ‘puppy’s death’ remark bizarre and ersatz, even by the lamentable standards of the secularist storm-troopers. Unless, of course, they subscribe to the policy that anything is allowed in their scorched-earth campaign against NM. If so, this is a sign of desperation in the Congress-UPA war room.

To get back to Messrs Akhtar and Singh. In this essay, I will occasionally be addressing them directly. I confess I do not subscribe totally to the views of George Orwell in Animal Farm that two legs are bad and four legs are better. Some four-legged creatures are quite avoidable as far as I am concerned — cats, for example. And certainly, tigers, lions, leopards etc. On this last category, I am sure the two of you and I will be on the same page (a phrase much used and abused these days by the Capital’s glitterati, including a certain Manish Tiwari in your camp).

Modi’s ‘puppy’ remark: The desperation to score cheap points

I am much more in sympathy with the views of the great French philosopher, the inimitable Duc de Rochefoucauld. His epic dictum, “The more I see of human beings, the more I love my dogs.” Is forever etched in my mind and heart. And every time the two of you open your mouth, I utter a hosanna in memory of the wise man from Gaul.

By this time, you will be getting the gist of what I am saying. Yes, you are right. I am saying that a departure of a puppy or a dog, whether by accident or illness or natural causes is infinitely sadder for me than the passing away of many two-legged creatures. There are innumerable reasons for this. I will start with an apocryphal account of why this is so.

Some readers will be au fait with the story of the hotel manager who responded to a potential client with words like these: “In all the years I have run my hotel, I have never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes etc. I have never evicted a dog for being drunk and disorderly and I have never experienced a dog running away from a hotel bill. Therefore, sir, your dog is most welcome at my establishment. If he vouches for you, you are welcome too.”

To come to weightier issues, as the Delhi babus would say, it is self-evident that a dog would not stab his human partner or betray his human household in the same way as you two regularly do to your motherland. For example, when you publicly endorsed an utterly vile and cretinous book that propagates the thesis that the 26/11 attacks were the handiwork of the RSS and assorted ‘Hindu-Judaic’ forces. For heaven’s sake, are there no depths that you will not plumb, or lows that you will not stoop to?

Of the two, I find Javed Akhtar the more disingenuous and, therefore, more disagreeable. He has made a fine art of his taqqiya by passing himself off as an atheist when he is nothing of the sort. In fact, if he dares to make this atheist gobbledygook claim in the various countries that he professes to admire, he will certainly be deprived of vital parts of his anatomy. He and his wife have made a profession from their so-called secularism and done very well out of it too. Made a Parliament seat a family sinecure. Mind you, Javed babu: I have to hand it to you. You have a certain gravitas and posture that enables you to peddle your ideology quite successfully under a ‘false flag’ strategy.

The puppy agenda

Now, Digvijay Singh is in a different league altogether. The man is so perverse that even his party is fed up with him. His incessant degeneracy and buffoonery are now rebounding. His mentors in 24 Akbar Road and 10 Janpath are clearly worried that this fellow will cost them heavily at the hustings in 2014. At least, Manish Tiwari’s ‘holistic approach’ garbage does not offend people as egregiously as Digvijay’s outbursts do. Recently, one of the hacks in a portal sympathetic to Digvijay’s cabal did quite a thorough hatchet job on him. This, surely, needed a green light from the top.

Now, pups and dogs will not do the things that Digvijay does so regularly and shamelessly. They will not lead the enemies of their human family into the family house through an unguarded rear entrance. They will not exploit the internal differences in their family home for the benefit of persons who do not wish them well. These are such cardinal principles for dogs that they do not have to be trained in them. We have to teach dogs toilet habits at the most. Not loyalty and devotion. The last two traits are ingrained in the canine DNA.

Dogs have also never committed genocide of their fellow creatures. Turf wars, they have, but not mass murders of their sisters, brothers and pups. In canine history, we will never find the parallels of the massacres unleashed by the Mahmud of Ghaznis, Baburs, Tughlaqs and Aurangzebs of the world. Or the genocide of the Armenians by the Ottoman Turks or of Jews and Slavs by German Nazis.
Because of these extremely important and relevant reasons, I see red when some people refer to Digvijay Singh, by the moniker ‘Dogvijay’. I have debarred and prohibited these friends and associates of mine from using this grossly offensive name for him. Offensive to the memory of my brave and loyal Mishti and to the other dogs I have grown up with.

    Very appropriately put. I too had a golden brown Lab who passed away in Dec last and he could have taught a lesson or two to the ilks of Diggy and Javed on loyalty and devotion.

    “I have debarred and prohibited these friends and associates of mine from using this grossly offensive name (Dogvijay) for him. Offensive to the memory of my brave and loyal Mishti and to the other dogs I have grown up with.”.

    Bravo. I could never have expressed my feelings so eloquently.

    All the Creatures who are holding that baseless book should be declared as Terrorist. Surprised to know ‘RSS ki Sajish’ in 26/11. Was Kasab a RSS man? I beg to differ on this even if it is God who says that.

    Your assessment about Digvijay Singh is absolutely correct. However, I would like to point out that Digvijay is in the good books of Sonia and Pappu. They very much like him because he, like Manish Tiwari, or for that all the Congress spokespersons, humiliates the Hindus on a daily basis and more the likes of Singh and Tiwari pour venom on the Hindus, more happy Sonia and Pappu feel. They are doing it deliberately; they bear Hindu names, but they are worse than the so-called atheists like Javed Akhtar and ilk who shamelessly masquerade as secularists.

      I don’t understand one thing. Sonia Gandhi is a product of aggressive Vatican Catholic Christianity. So, it is obvious she hates Hindus, Hinduism and India. But why does Rahul Gandhi hates Hindus? He is half Hindu, right? Because his father Rajiv Gandhi was Hindu and he even offered prayers at Ayodhya Ram Mandir.

    It will do all of us a world of good if we just face facts.
    And the fact is, an overwhelming majority of today’s Hindus, are mentally deficient. They are simply not intelligent enough as human beings, when compared to people who consider hindus as their enemies. They just do not care to study their own history, they refuse to learn any lesson whatsoever from the last 1200 years of their existence in their ancient homeland of Indian subcontinent, even as vast stretches of that homeland has been taken away from them in the form of Pakistan, Afghanistan & Bangladesh. They have been most recently evicted from Kashmir, and will lose Bengal in future, probably Kerala too.
    Despite all this, they fail to see, let alone acknowledge that they face an existential threat!!
    No one can save, no matter how hard he/she tries, a group of people as stupid and as suicidal as today’s Hindus. They are doomed, it’s a fact, and there’s no use running away from facts.

    In the Islamic culture dogs are dispised because a certain prophet disliked them. Perhaps that explains why the Islamist Supremacist Javad Akthar was so rattled. In spite of his pretentions of atheism he is a closet Islamist. He is a liar too. Puppy does not have the same bad connotation as ‘Kutta ka bacha’ in Islamic narrative.

    Link please? Would LOVE to read it!

  • Rajalakshmi

    Excellent!

    Your assessment of Javed Akthar is very accurate. Javed Akthar , Shabana Azmi, Arundathi Roys , Amartya Sens have successfully manufactured a halo around themselves calling themselves activists / intellectuals.Propped up by rajdeep sardesais & prannoy roys. Javed Akthar purposely dons the garb of an atheist with a view to maligning HINDUISM & HINDUS. Has become a permanent fixture in many puerile debates. Bollywood-kollywood is a sterile debauched fraternity unfortunately exerting a powerful influence over the masses.

    Digvijay Singh is anti P.Chidambaram. There are lots of fissures among congressis. The only glue holding them together is Sonia dynasty. Remove Sonia & her children. There shall be no congress party.

    Sure calling Digvijay as Dogvijay is an insult to that most loyal and loveable specie among animals, the dog. I think calling him Piggy instead of Diggy would be an insult to pigs who are far, far better that Diggy.

    Till one can suggest a nick-name that suits him to the hilt, it might be appropriate to keep calling him Digvijay or Diggi.

    And thanks for the blog. It was great reading it.

  • Krishan Kalra

    Nice article; both entertaining and serious at the same time.
    I may not agree with the analogies but am fully with you re Modi’s capabilities and his claim to the top slot.
    Wish he makes it.
    Have had the opportunity to interact and travel with him extensively during 2006 – my FICCI days. The guy is hard working, a doer and hard driving; also probably honest to the core. His honesty extends to even the issue of not apologizing for his Godhra deeds!

    “They (dogs) will not exploit the internal differences in their family home for the benefit of persons who do not wish them well. These are such cardinal principles for dogs that they do not have to be trained in them. We have to teach dogs toilet habits at the most. Not loyalty and devotion.

    This summarises,ever so accurately and elegantly, why the likes of Akhtar, Singh, Tiwari, Sibal and company will never reach the rarefied heights where pups and dogs reside. Thank you for this article – I will always cherish it. And not just because I am a dog lover.

  • Vipul Kaushik

    The most communal word in India is Hindu. It’s just plain sad that I can not feel proud of my religion. If anyone calls himself a Hindu, then the person can not be secular. Irony!!!!

    And it in no way means that I am not an Indian first. There are so many problems we as a nation, have to deal with; but all that matters is to fight over issues like “I am a Hindu Nationalist”. How shallow is the thinking of such people that they can not understand the meaning of this sentence.

    I am a Indian and I am Hindu and I am proud of both these facts. I simply don’t understand how could this mean that I hate other communities.

  • SeethaRamaraj

    On a different topic, there is a silent SM campaign started by Communists showing that their honest & poorest Tripura CM “Manik Sarkar is far better than Modi”, “Sarkar initiated several programs much earlier than Modi”, “Manik does everything better than Modi” etc. Have NitiCentral noticed this malicious campaign?
