India – Hegemony Run Political Establishment

September 20, 2015

By Padmini Arhant

In the previous segment, snapshot on hegemony backed regimes were presented to review reality.

Although the earlier topic only covered few among several worldwide, the facts confirm status quo.

Similarly, India apparently independent nation regardless of dominion republic declaration clarifying non-termination of foreign rule prevalent in proxy governance.

Hegemony strategy premised on control over entire political establishment bid on all factions for win win situation in the so-called election with foreign and domestic illegal funding serving political office bearers, campaign donors and incognito rulers’ interests through beguiled electorate vote.

Indian elections attract donations from myriad sources creating prime time to liquidate black money not barring counterfeit notes printing to bribe voters besides overseas funders viz. Ford foundation, Saudi Arabia and alike involvement up until now.

The political system with prominent political parties at the national and regional level forging alliances alternate positions as ruling and opposition while maintaining agenda to protect each other from accountability on corruption and criminality.

Tax revenues become personal wealth and used to gain political mileage.

For better understanding – the two major political parties Congress and BJP cited in the example.

In hegemony political screen play, direction and production – the common scheme is developing poster-figure (poster-boy) to camouflage duplicity.

With Congress Party – hegemony choice to head Indian government was former World Bank member and economist Dr. Manmohan Singh promoted as Mr. Honest and Mr. Clean later turned out to be otherwise in Coalgate scam and remaining oblivious in 2G spectrum scandal.

Finance, Defense and Foreign Affairs appointments are hegemony authorized and hence World Bank ex-officials viz. current President Pranab Mukherjee, then finance minister P. Chidambaram in key posts were least surprising due to allegiance to external authority.

Congress Party British Raj representative A.O. Hume founded Congress originated in pre-independence India retained dynasty until today.

The Congress Party led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) term I and II (2004 – 2014) was progressive on explosive corruption scandals from top to bottom i.e. the High Command to lowest order enabling hegemony operated foreign banks and tax havens flourish at Indian population expense.

Organized crime syndicate funneled financial institutions under Congress Party chief Sonia Gandhi and UPA finance minister P. Chidambaram not to mention BJP complicity considering inaction as chief opposition sums up political collusion. 

Cash for votes not only on campaign trail but also extended in Parliament with BJP theatrical performance in an effort to absolve responsibility is a serious blow to democracy.

Congress survival rocked not from BJP or any other political group strength.  In fact, the self-inflicted damages with massive corruption unfolding despite political parties and hegemony owned media cover up, the fox could no longer hide in sheep’s clothing scenario emerged on Congress and allies’ corruption deals paving the way for hegemony alternative – BJP and coalition.

BJP – Bharatiya Janata Party with British Raj fostered RSS also dating back to colonial era like Congress is hegemony’s other wing.

Hegemony prepared to roll the dice favoring BJP candidate.  Politics finds strange bedfellows in the ambiance of adversary becoming an ally and vice versa.

Indian state Gujarat former Chief Minister Narendra Modi was hegemony approved candidate in the bogus Gujarat re-election in 2012 against pseudo contender supposedly representing common man basically to stifle average citizens’ representation.

Hegemony policy and advise to power hungry political class to ride on targeted individual’s back while the entity isolated and shunned from reference in sheer violation of free speech and democratic rights justified under false pretext is indicative of fearing expeditious self-collapse.

The piracy and plagiarism evident in copyright infringement with ideas, solutions, phrases and style from presented as their own not to mention identity theft speaks volume on the political and personal character.

Furthermore, imitation of positive contributions without due acknowledgment is fraudulence and forgery constituting punishable crime in a civilized society in addition to burdening self with irreversible karmic effects.

Alternatively, caricature by paid actors using offensive material and platform is desperate times seeking desperate measures eventually hurting the catalysts and source. The contrived conduct poorly reflects on the promoters’ background and political embodiment.

Above all spying and 24/7 surveillance including eavesdropping and intrusion in private residence with little or no respect for other’s life is indecency and perversion emanating from political insecurity.

On the contrary, the political circle and everyone connected to them depleting national income and thriving on taxpayers funded salary and privileges not excluding sprawling mansions live discreet life cloaked in secrecy when they deserve to be on public radar.

In other activities placing the gun on other’s shoulders unleashing provocative and inflammatory sentiments is a cowardly gesture and do not necessarily safeguard the façade for what lies underneath is explicit in legacy and ongoing trend.

All actions have serious repercussions without exception.

Hegemony and delegates in Indian politics as Muslims half-brothers feign identity denying undeniable relationship with indifference to warfare imposed on people of Islamic faith worldwide.

The incumbent Indian administration recent borrowed remarks on terrorism is a cliché and disingenuous in light of latest abstinence on UN vote rather than unequivocal yeah endorsing Palestinian rights to file complaint on Israeli authorities’ atrocities with International Criminal Court of Justice.

Simultaneously Indian political apparatus at hegemony behest slight real freedom fighters like Netaji Subash Chandra Bose deemed imperialists enemy.

Juxtaposed the functionaries unduly glorify late Indian President A P J Abdul Kalam perhaps because of latter acquiescence to foreign manned Indian government’s unsavory stratagem.

Hegemony and Indian political contingency convoluted disposition is self defeating in the heightened absurdity.

The uncanny resemblance in hegemony remote rule in India cannot escape attention.

Hegemony projected ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with emphasis on integrity to keep Congress headed UPA in power.

Now the 66 years old Prime Minister Narendra Modi is hegemony’s poster person to advance foreign agenda.

Nonetheless fake image and personality is a hard sell requiring hyped marketing. Anything unauthentic inevitably fizzle more so with those inclined to despotism verifiable in history serving as testimony.

Likewise, hegemony loyalists P. Chidambaram holding finance ministry during Congress tenure and same portfolio awarded to BJP’s unsuccessful candidate Arun Jaitley in the national election is pre-determined decision mocking democracy.

Not long ago hegemony slated BJP as fundamentalists, hindutva and saffron party refusing then Gujrat Chief Minister Narendra Modi travelers visa to visit United States quoting Godra communal violence as the factor.

Now in the well known political flip flop hegemony extending unprecedented rating lauding Modi governance is misnomer ignoring significant failures enumerated below.

Indian Parliament Monsoon session stymied and pronounced complete washout in the domestic front and foreign affairs – the critical high level talks between nuclear neighbors India and Pakistan – National Security Advisors meeting cancellation explains the lack of initiatives and misplaced priority.

Farmers plight with suicides that began in Congress fronted UPA duration escalated at present and war veterans hunger strike to receive fair pensions initially resisted authorizing police intervention to disperse peaceful assembly.

Modi Sarkar or government dubbed Mercantile Modi not without reasons with India’s wealthiest and leading industrialists Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani exerting influence and their delegations regularly accompany PM overseas tour.

Modi administration in return exchange partiality with requests to United States to list the moguls from economic, entertainment and political field in VIP category exempting them from security protocol applicable to ordinary citizens within and outside United States.

Indian political structure adapts United States political pattern with Wall Street drafting legislations through intense lobbying alongside special interests like AIPAC, NRA, religious zealots and institutions for imperial aspirations remaining firm on their respective ideology much to national and international detriment.

Viewing through Indian prism, the political parties predominantly represent the rich, famous and powerful in society.

Indian politics using caste and religion for communal divide is standard practice inherited from colonial ruler.

NDA and BJP trust deficit with Muslim community in India stems from Gujarat and Ayodhya incidents no less than counterpart Congress response towards Sikhs and Sri Lankan Tamils aiding previous Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksha brutal crackdown following former Prime Ministers Indira Gandhi and Rajeev Gandhi assassination.

The political tactic to address this problem is indeed uniquely deceptive.  BJP cohort All India Majilis-e-ltte(?)had-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) – the Hyderabad based party flamboyant President Asaduddin Owaisi and sibling Akbaruddin Owaisi are BJP leadership and RSS sponsored canons exacerbating the existing authority credibility.

Whenever politics engage in Machiavellian approach aimed at end justifying the means, these are ominous signs for precipitous decline.

The analogy using Congress and BJP applies to regional political parties with prolonged rule enforced via flawed electoral process.

Indian political chronicle too consists assassination conforming to violent removal of leaders especially Mahatma Gandhi – pioneer of peace and non-violence raising poignant question on the price the nation expected to pay upon insiders committing treason to appease foreign power.

India’s freedom from oligarchy, dynasty, religious extremism and antiquated caste orientation preserved to facilitate hegemony dominance is paramount to experience pervasive progress in the country with vast potential.

Peace to all!

Thank you.

United Nations – Social Economic Equality Possible Upon UNSC Dissolution

August 20, 2015

By Padmini Arhant

United Nations inception following world war II in the twentieth century with United Nations Security Council (UNSC) comprising imperial powers – Britain, France, United States, China, Russia and new addition Germany in P5+1 mislead UN purpose.

UNSC five permanent nuclear nations with veto authority is a hierarchy in contradiction to contemporary  economic dynamics and geopolitical landscape.

The global powers syndrome exercising prerogative at UNSC slight remaining members of United Nations set up as an international body.

UN poised as an International organization is on UNSC oversight.

UNSC P5+1 along with counterpart EU aim to prolong imperial era.

UNSC imposing economic sanctions against non-western countries and fomenting international crises through military interventions and operations involving terrorism rather than preventing them proved counterproductive.

UNSC arbitrary dealings against nations regarded adversaries with trade and financial embargo viz. North Korea, Cuba, Syria and lately United States and Israel created South Sudan are few examples of ongoing economic warfare.

Imperialism revived in UNSC ambit with P5+1 as former imperialists renewing aspirations in respective regions for economic and strategic dominance.

United States military prowess demonstrated in militarization of Africa besides extending support to France in neocolonization of the continent.

United States sprawling military bases worldwide not sparing island nations defines imperial goals despite colossal failure in invasion and occupation of foreign land adventure.

The expedition downside experienced in national front costing United States taxpayers in trillions expended in destruction of nations backfired in domestic economic situation far from recovery.

United States direct control over Latin America conspicuous in disabling democratic governments and promoting contraband substances ranging from drugs to arms in North, South and Central America.  The economic strategy Free Trade Agreement is one of many dimensions to exert rule in that domain.  The Caribbean nations debilitated by enforcing foreign economic and military plan.

United States and NATO military drills in Baltic sea, presence in Afghanistan covering Central Asia, United States activity in Korean Peninsula implementing Pivot Asia policy claimed as curtailing Russia and China incursions in the respective regions perpetually escalate tensions and proliferate conventional as well as nuclear arms race.

The skirmishes are also impetus for disproportionate defense spending producing more poverty and economic struggles worldwide.

Britain’s unwillingness to renounce empire trait in the twenty first century evident in impugns on Malvinas of the Argentinian coast, Gibraltar in Iberian Peninsula and nations held under dominion status notwithstanding substantial landmass in Antarctica and waters in Indian Ocean declared private estate.

France relentless pursuit in Africa is a lost cause refusing to learn from the past exploitation of Africa.

Russia having gained from territorial annexation of Crimea in the wake of Ukraine destabilization ominously assert Arctic zone i.e. the North Pole as state owned property.

Russian Federation attempts to resurrect ex-Soviet bloc largely attributed to United States and NATO upsurge in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

United States and NATO coordination in Eastern and Central Europe other than Central Asia generated Russia formation of Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) with Baltic states membership and China-Russia initiated Shanghai Cooperation Organization to counter existential territorial ambitions.

China’s predisposition on stretching border lines apparent since seizure of Tibet.

Furthermore, Maoist infiltration in Nepal and north eastern India enlarge China’s encroachment on Indian frontier with Arunachal Pradesh,  Ladakh and Aksai Chin Kashmir remaining contentious in that context.

Subsequent to economic rise in the latter half of twentieth century, China’s territorial disputes with neighboring states in South China Sea has intensified offering United States pretext to besiege Asia Pacific.

Middle East – Imperial alliance with Israel, Saudi Arabia and Turkey engaged in endless violence and proclamation of nuclear treaty between P5+1, EU and Iran epitomize two sides of the coin.

The paradigm shifts in western powers partnership with Iran in the region is reminiscent of western approach towards Libya for easy access to Libyan oil and economic resources during Libyan leader Muammar Gaddaffi governance.

Western maneuver in replacing Saudi Arabia with Iran and incentives to convince Israel on Iran nuclear deal clarifies imperial powers classic characteristics on enmity and amity to suit convenience.

Similarly, Iran’s close economic ties with Turkey amid Turkey’s overt indulgence in terror against Iraq and Syria spilling over to Lebanon pose conflict of interest exacerbating humanitarian plight.

The quid pro quo between P5+1, EU and Iran sharing commonality on imperial legacy depends on western forces balancing act with old ally Israel.

Western strategy with Persian nation Iran in Arab oriented Middle East is enactment of Persian and Ottoman reign vying for regional superiority.

EuropeGermany as P5+1 entity, European Union dominant member and euro zone chief beneficiary is hegemony augmentation in transatlantic..  Germany capitalizing on vulnerable EU members viz. Greece economic woes facilitate international creditors ECB, IMF and EC monopoly in executing imprudent economic scheme under the guise of rescue package.

UN credibility and viability jeopardized with UNSC decisions on international matter and UN missing in action on pivotal issues related to human misery. UN peace keeping corps reputation compromised in war torn nations especially Africa with allegations on certain UN squad for sexual assault and atrocities against women and children.

UN performance or the lack thereof in resolving Palestinian problem and leaving Sri Lankan Tamil civilians to fend for themselves from Sri Lankan military raid and summary executions…not barring partisanship on sectarian clashes confirm one world government agenda and resistance to transformation seeking departure from exclusivity and unipolar mechanism.

UNSC dissolution abandoning flawed system and relieving UN organization from external jurisdiction prevalent in UN Secretary General appointment and diverse engagement is the preliminary step in building reliable global consortium.

UN addressing disparity within would set precedence for universal equality.

Humanitarian progress made possible with recognition of errors and sincere commitment to amend and adopt positive measures benefitting the world at large.

Peace to all!

Thank you.
