Alter Ego

The two most populous nations on earth, China and India under diverse authoritarian rule, one in direct form as Communism i.e. China under Xi Jinping while the other most dangerous, the so-called democracy in disguise totalitarian leadership combined with potent fundamentalist radicalism headed by Narendra Modi are essentially alter ego to one another.

The heads of the largest nations in South and South East Asia are sinister secret society backed in their respective activities far from legitimate governance.

China’s Xi Jinping and India’s Narendra Modi share common traits and problems with a mutual response reflected in the current skirmishes in the Himalayan region.

To begin with mendacity, mistrust and malfeasance are primary attributes in their respective meteoric rise in political career. They both deploy and hopelessly rely on propaganda and mass deception through shoddy journalism hired locally with questionable credentials linked to London further adding to tarnished reputation.

Xi Jinping in China and Narendra Modi in India have miserably failed in their handling of the corona virus, the pandemic dealt with secrecy and draconian measures leaving the relevant victims to fend for themselves.

Narendra Modi government’s colossal failures in many frontiers evident in status quo. Similarly Xi Jinping’s communist hard line policy proved disaster in the domestic and international front prompting undesirable actions exacerbating personal and political recovery.

Though projected as strong leaders through their heavily invested misinformation campaign using press and various media platform, the proof of the pudding is in the failed economies and brewing storm within the country directly affecting their rocky position in the political party and system they are and should be deeply concerned about considering their consistent flaws and fractured performance.

Narendra Modi devised Pulwama attack strategy in Kashmir using Indian Defense security personnel as sacrificial lambs found resourceful in the campaign trail rhetoric in sheer violation of electoral rules and democratic norms during national election in May 2019 claiming fraudulent victory.

The counterpart Xi Jinping in hot waters in the wake of incontrovertible revelations on the corona virus i.e. manufacturing the engineered virus and spreading the deadly pathogen worldwide is a mere tip of the iceberg.

China’s economy, credibility and enchilada in terms of Beijing’s impulsive response to Hong Kong introducing controversial national security law triggered worldwide condemnation.

Additionally, legitimate global frustration on the betrayal over corona virus saga are enough to stimulate egregious actions from Chinese leadership facing enormous pressure and opposition within communist politburo and 1.45 billion oppressed citizens in the misleading People Republic of China.

Regardless of the situations in both nations, the leaderships’ devious maneuver to deflect angry disillusioned population attention from domestic woes and calamities are anticipated reactions.

The warfare in the Himalayan region that has consumed 32 Indian soldiers’ lives and casualties on Chinese side as well that are not officially reported in line with lack of transparency on all issues especially deaths among defense forces is least surprising.

There is no justification whatsoever for China’s aggression towards neighbors near and far in the absence of clear effective resolutions to the crises originated from China.

Likewise, Narendra Modi government acknowledgment on recklessness prevalent in all matter not barring ignoring security warnings from intelligence agencies and open threat from the enemy next door i.e. China’s leadership on the rampant aggression along the Himalayan border leading to unnecessary and preventable loss of lives among Indian soldiers in the past few days is minimum expected from the recalcitrant administration.

China’s Xi Jinping and India’s Narendra Modi bolstered by illegal secret society are at the crossroads of their political challenges that requires humility, honesty and harmony in their approach not haste destructive demeanor.

Finally, no street hawker journalist monetarily incentivized with few rupees using unscrupulous criminal tactics such as  superimposition on images in the articles without stating the picture source can possibly rescue Narendra Modi from the indefensible and irreparable damage, albeit self inflicted due to detrimental indulgence and mindless pursuits.

Nonetheless, China’s Xi Jinping and India’s Narendra Modi experience beginning of the end in their political journey. The imminent process delivering hope for the dawn of peace and progress in the region.

Thank you.
