1. Bhaskar Menon was a Keralite. He joined Electric and Musical Industries (EMI) records in Kolkata, and soon moved to the US and rose to become its global head. in 1973 he heard that Pink Floyd was moving away from EMI, so he met them, and requested them not to. He told them that he would make their new album The Dark Side of The Moon a superhit. He picked up its single Money and launched a blitzkrieg in media to promote it. The Album soon topped the chart and stayed close to top for 741 weeks, that is, till 1988, an unbroken record till date.
2. Noni Gopal Bose was a revolutionary in the 1920s. The British jailed him. He managed to escape and reached America. There, he married Charlotte, a French-German woman. Charlotte soon fell in love with Hinduism, turned pure veg, and became a student of Vedanta. She raised her son Amar Gopal Bose a Hindu. He went to MIT and graduated in the 1950s in Electrical Engineering. After graduating he came to India for one year on a research assignment and fell in love with Prema,
a Bong (Bengali) a Tamil girl, and married her soon afterward. Amar Bose created Bose speakers. His company remained privately held. He became a billionaire in the 21st century. His speakers still remain the Gold standard in music.
Hindus remain the most individualistic people, with zero collective consciousness. They do not talk to each other, and their leadership doesn’t talk to them, because there is no Hindu leadership.
What is the point, you may ask? Point is that the two communal states, Kerala and West Bengal, also had the most educated and wise Hindus at the turn of the twentieth century. Communism rose soon afterward, and like the intelligent Russians, these two Hindu groups fell for the fraud called communism/socialism. Keralites and Bongs still do wonders once they get set free in a Capitalist setting, but still love communism.
How do people become blind to the consequences of an ideology?
In my opinion, it is all a game of communication. Man’s mind is a clean slate. Those who bother to write on it something, get not only their Apps but even their Operating System running on it.
About 1500 years ago something happened that stunned the collective Hindu brain into a coma. And now it refuses to wake up. Hindus remain the most individualistic people, with zero collective consciousness. They do not talk to each other, and their leadership doesn’t talk to them, because there is no Hindu leadership. So, they vote for a Leftist thug who would impoverish them, and on the same day murder five members of the own family for Rs. 30000/-. Have turned the marriage into an extortion racket and consequently destroyed it, but always vote for the corrupt socialist vote bank managers who are openly selling their present and the future to their vote banks.
All the thuggish religions and ideologies go to great lengths to communicate with their members 24×7, and at the same to block any outside communication to the members. How do we tell Hindus that they need to talk to each other, to their next-door neighbour, and across Caste and linguistic lines?
A poorly written piece. Just what is the point you are trying to make? If it is meant to criticise the Communist
Parties, then you need more cogent reasons and solid facts. Not in any doubt that the Communists are to a large extent responsible for the all-round decline seen in WB and Kerala. Such a subject calls for a more well-thought out study displaying greater professionalism. A shoddy piece of writing and terrible journalism. Do you have an editorial desk at all? Pgurus, wake up!
The point is simple.
Communism/Socialism seek social equality through wealth distribution, and not wealth creation (without which such distribution is impossible).
It is the crooked and perverted (Minorities) who grasp this and exploit the hapless through violence, fed on devious forms of guilt association and enslavement. Once such a power structure fructifies the inevitable decay of the majority society (Hindus) is ensured.
Intellectuals find no place in such structures. The hapless can’t understand them and the perverted shun them (lest they be undone.)
Intellectuals can only thrive where there is Freedom. And through their creativity, wealth creation is possible and the communities are enriched.
This has become standard fare for everyone spreading fake news, ‘Blocked minorities, oppressed, downtrodden, physically challenged’ etc.
Can you provide specific examples of who were blocked, their qualifications including background in sound research, (resumes to compare would be preferable), competing candidates and their qualifications, type of ‘blocking’, application dates with signatures(not all who send resumes eventually apply).
If you cannot, this is just another rant.
Readers pl. note that this comment of Roger applies to David Bell’s comment below and not to the main article.
Team Pgurus, you are dumb as a dodo. Your American riches make you blind to truth. You never really believed in India or Hindu dharma.
Go back to the drawing board, try to unlearn Western, shade you arrogance a little, and you will yourself figure out the truth behind Kerala and Bengal history and current attitude.
In your view, what is that history that you ask to discover? When u call pgurus blind and dumb, how do u expect them to discover? Wont it be like blind men “feeling” the elephant? Be bold and write precise points so others can know what u have in mind
Very rightly said. PGurus has written a piece and it is for crititcs to disect it with facts. Not simply rant away some nonsense.
You should finish the story about Amar Bose.
He had two children with his “arranged” marriage to Prema but sent her back to India shortly after. Instead he carried on an illicit relationship with his secretary, a Swiss woman named Ursula Boltshauser. He kept Ursula as his mistress until he finally divorced Prema in ignominy. Then he married Ursula Boltshauser but still pretended to be a virtuous man. Amar Bose routinely blocked minorities (black Americans, Hispanics, and others) from working at his company, a disgrace to the Boston area. Finally when Bose died he arranged for the shares of the company to go to MIT as a dodge to avoid taxes. Facts are an important thing. You should do ALL your research.
