You do not refer to history books to find the truth, but you read the fiction of the time.

War with Russia?

March 21, 2014

The way things are developing, it appears as if the politicians are contemplating a war with Russia. Will such a war get popular support in EU nations is the question. Deep in economical crisis, EU nations have some of the most corrupt people in the leadership. Will a war help cover them up the matters and linger the reforms? I do not think diplomacy can not solve this crisis. The first thing needed is to tone down the voice of a provocative English press, owned by a few Moguls only.

Describing it as ‘porcelain hard’ and ‘rock hard’ in two successive paragraphs is a good translation? Of an author who nearly won Nobel prize this year, if one went by rumors. Yes, for literature. The ‘generic’ quality of writing of the eventual winner can be matched by very few of the ‘cultivated’ type of writing schools and scholarships.

Free speech

As the outlook worsens for Europe and the crisis in Syria deepens, the USA looks like again being sucked into the vortex of possible greater conflict. For Europeans are unwilling to work their way out of their debts. Germany can not bail them out for ever.
I find a kind of MacCarthyism taking hold in the former colonies and other countries, where English is almost the national language. The carefully managed show is finally coming apart–it may seem.
The crisis is deepening and the plot thickening.

The best literature could detoxify and leave you feeling as if you’re innocent again.
Bless the writer!

Who owns the earth?
If not God probably the British. One would like to make you feel a tenant in your own home, eating your food and drinking your wine. There is an escape only if you too begin behaving like one, talking the language and acquiring the attitude. Anything less would be frowned upon. It is so even with the people just twenty years old, and not only the veterans of WWII. The system must be rigourous to regiment everyone like that.
I wish I met an exception.

I have observed that ‘Educated’ type of People are poorer. Probably they can see the ‘Intellectual-deficit’ clearly. Who can bridge it?

With its print edition gone, who will decide now who was the man of the year?

Fair-weather friends

Rajat Gupta has only two friends who are not fair-weather kind. Kofi Annan and Bill Gates. He should be thankful. Because most of us have none.
