Letter to the Torch Bearers of Indian Civilization

This post is a Blogadda Spicy Saturday Pick


Dear Sirs and Madams,

We are indeed blessed to have been born into the oldest civilization in the world. The glorious land of thousands of Gods and Goddesses, where unmatched works of art and literature were created; where we have people like you to lead us into the most desired, most blessed civilization the world is yet to see.

The most remarkable individuals that you are, we have to thank you for all those times that you have proved again and again that we are indeed, a nation full of idiots.

While we have people like the Madam who taught us that being called 'sexy' by a bunch of rogues in a street full of castrated, spineless creatures is actually a good thing. We, mere women, were so stupid to think that being treated as an object was actually bad! You opened our eyes to the truth, Madam. Ofcourse, such remarks from random guys on the road are, in reality, a boost to our morale. It also gives us the impression that we, just like you, are young and desirable. Does that also mean, Madam, that when we ignore such comments, and the said 'enthusiastic boys' decide to discover silence as a code to push their luck further, we send them to your address?

In yet another enlightening moment, Madam also educated us simple mortals that your jeans, or your off shoulder dress is actually a code, in the language of her ancestors, to invite an assault on yourself. Ofcourse! Why didn't we ever think of that, Madam - really a eureka moment here. Poor 'enthusiatic boys'! How can we expect them to control their animal urges when we invite them to rape us by not following a dress code? And to think we had the audacity to demand punishment for the poor rapists! Shame on us!

By the way, lets not forget your esteemed sister, who had very selflessly given away the details of a molestation victim all over national media! In these troubled times, who gives away the limelight to another? But Madam did it with such ease! It takes unfathomable levels of stupidity, and an equal measure of insensitivity to achieve such a feat! Kudos, Madam.

But nothing quite prepares the mind for the astounding discovery by you, esteemed Sir, on the direct co relation between the marriageable age of girls of our nation and the enviable rape statistics of the country. I am sure a discovery of this magnitude could only have come with rigorous research and single minded devotion on the part of the highly educated research analysts assigned to our rural villages, also lovingly known as khaps. You have proven beyond a sliver of doubt that the right to decide when to marry, who to marry and whether to marry at all or not, should not rest with the stupid parents, or gasp!! the girl!........ God forbid if they decide to wait till the girl child is a well educated, confident woman!  Can you imagine how tragic it would be if every girl in the country knew all her rights!! Thank God for such visionaries such as yourself, who most certainly will take us back to the days of glorious Aurangzeb reign! Also, thank God for this glorified, legal, indigenous institution whereby you can, in the comfort of your home, rape young girls at your own convenience - legally!

Epic brainwave, I tell you Sir!!

Last but certainly not the least, this years winner of 'Size 11 foot in mouth' Award goes to the epitome of intelligent life forms. This gentleman has single-handedly, managed to discover the missing link in the evolution of man from monkeys - himself!!

There was a time when consensual sex meant just that! Today, thanks to this genius of a monkey....errr....man, we now know that 'gang-rap(e)' (not to be confused with Gangsta rap, an art form which requires much higher skill levels than owning a penis) is actually a mutated variant of consensual sex. So what if popular belief defines gang rape different from consensual sex! We know it to be one and the same, and this explains our tolerance, and our encouraging, nurturing attitude towards the previously misunderstood breed of people called rapists! Way to go, Vatsyayna'a first cousin!

Sincerely yours,

The Stupid people who vote for you

  1. The last line says it all THE STUPID people who vote for you and I can bet my life , when the elections come again .. we shall be VOTING for the again...

    the only solution is to get rid of these people and the time has come when WE the people need to mobilise and Take things in our own hands .. one way or other...

    I doubt if writing letters etc is gonna make any ounce of difference.. As BHagat singh said "IT takes a Loud noise to make the DEAF HEAR"..

    congress and the THEN leaders were hobnobbing with British. Which is quiet evident fro historical facts, the British always acted in extreme cruel manner with freedom fighters but they remained very supportive in relation with Gandhi et al. While leaving they handed over power to their stooges..

    I doubt with the khadi wearing leaders will do any good for the nation EVER.. and any one of them

  2. i aint kidding and Im not ashamed of saying it either - i would happily support a vigilante who would do away with these kind of ch***ya loafers who have somehow weeded their way into key political roles of our country and give such idiotically narrow minded comments.
    As I'm writing this, on NDTV, another imbecilic Gujarati Congress MP is openly defending why he threatened a toll booth worker with a firearm just because the guy asked him for ID.

    1. Really, Roshan... sometimes I wonder if we aren't too patient (read that as chicken) for our own good. We prefer to ignore the signs, and hope that 'it will never happen to us' .... the classic case of 'sannu ki'..... sad!

  3. These are charmed, magical times. Many, many werewolves and vampires walk our streets and even preside as the titular heads of the states and important commissions, all in the forms of men and women. Now that in itself is not bad at all! The trouble is, who installed them in those chairs, please? If it is the democracy, and in a democracy the majority will have its say, we are obviously a minority. And minorities should either learn the law of the land, get raped, or get 'Gangsta-raped', and I am a man I have a mother and sisters and a wife and a couple of daughters, or leave the country!

    Are we fit for democracy? Does Mr Chautala want the Mughal rule re-installed when as according to him, the girls were married while they were toddlers still to avoid being raped? Does he even know what the most Mughal paraphernalia did to our girls our women?

    I am sorry for the outburst but I am sick, sick, sick. That is a scathing satire you have written but why do I see only four responses to it? Where are the so-called feminist brigade? Forgive me, but I find most of them hypocritical too.

    1. Firstly, Mr.Pandey, thankyou for the outburst... its like a big hug for a blogger, when someone notices the context and the emotions in the wtiting.

      No, if you ask me honestly, we are not ready for democracy - we like others to make all our decisions for us!

      And finally, it really doesn't matter how many people come in here and say 'Good post' does it? What matters is when people who share the angst, share the frustration, and have the gumption to voice their opinions come over and contribute. And as far as I am concerned, I have illustrious bloggers like you, Doc, Bikram are here - thanks!

  5. Sometimes the mere thought of breathing the same air as these asshol*s make me sick. I will always pray for their early departure from mother Earth. That will be the day she will be purified of this scum.

    1. Amit, completely agree - but like Doc Roshan said, its now probably time for a vigilante - no amount of sarcasm, writing down or browbeating seems to send the message accross to these b***t**ds!!

  7. I wish the "educated" people you have mentioned here were sensible enough to understand the angst your voice holds! Its a pity that our country has such people in high posts.
    Ape to man - the history repeats itself : man to ape ..

    1. Thanks Arpitha - Ape to man, indeed. I assume even apes have better codes of conduct than we do!!

  8. I'm tired of this nonsense. I'm tired of women always being victims of such illogical unreasonable baseless beliefs. I'm tired of women being blamed for the barbarian behavior of men who have no control over themselves. And the I'm tired of the same men judging the women around for what they wear and what they do in life. Sick bastards they are. Early marriage is the solution they come up with. And these are the men in power in this country. Also, you know, I'm tired, tired of fighting cause things seem to be going down the ladder day by day.
    I hope things change as the next generation takes over.

    1. Oh yes, Ashwini, our next generation is taking over just fantastically. The leader scions are sitting pretty living up life king size, with no worries in the world....

      Look at the average age of the rapists - younger and younger each incident. In the Guwahati molestation, I think none of the sickos were a day older than 25.... what kind of next generation are you hoping for?

  13. Well stated. Sometimes I wonder if we as a nation are qualified to be a democracy. Recent incidents show that as a nation, as a society, as a culture, we have degenerated to levels that are subhuman.

      Completely agree with you - we seem to be proving again and again that we are not ready for responsibility of any kind!

  14. A very thought provoking post.Going through the words,I felt a shiver gripping my whole being. Those who indulge in such shameless deeds,move about openly proclaiming that no one can touch them(sic).The irony is that they have their (Godfathers) to back them.

  15. I read couple of minutes ago on Binu's Blog that we are idiots and after reading yours, I can't agree more. Well as one of my friend said, I can't decide whether to be angry or laugh at our politicians. A very well written take!
