A Letter to The Lordship

My younger brother Montu- The- Moron (MTM) was visibly pained with the happenings all around the country in last few days. He could not hold himself back and wrote the following letter to the Chief Justice of India. As MTM has very low IQ, whatever he has written may not make sense to all. I reproduce below what he wrote.

Lordship,

Past few days have been days of immense pain, agony and frustration for the country men. We saw anti-national slogans being raised at JNU, we saw Jat agitation seeking reservation and also we saw a fierce encounter in Jammu and Kashmir where 5 of our brave hearts got martyred.

Lordship, the politicians are too busy doing politics, stalling parliament and holding back progress of our country. I did not find it appropriate to disturb the politicians with a letter, thus this one is addressed to you, after all you share a posh neighbourhood with them at Lutyens Delhi. I wish to discuss the said happenings one by one, hope your patience won’t wane out.

I start with JNU, as this seems to have caught your attention. Lordship, The video tapes of slogan raising have been circulated by media and Whatsapp. Watching that made my anger shoot up, I hope same would have happened to you too as a citizen of India. I too got to know about the beating of Kanahiya by lawyers, the president of student’s council of JNU, when he was being produced in court on sedition charges. I was perplexed by reaction of Supreme Court on it. Lordships were prompt enough to send notice to advocates charged with beating Kanahiya. Lordship, thousands get beaten on Indian streets daily, many are lynched, fairly good number of such acts happen in courts across India, you never took notice of that. Lordship, Kanahiya faces sedition charges others are innocent, still I leave it to your wisdom.

Lordship, we had a huge hue and cry from sects of people who opposed the move of hoisting the tricolour at university campuses. Why any Indian should have any reservation to that. Lordship, I am reminded of a Sanskrit inscription surrounding emblem of my university, It read Shastre Shaastre Ch Kaushalam ( Mastery in both, weapons and knowledge) I took immense pride in it, but today, in hindsight, I think such education system is responsible for JNU and resistance to hoisting national flag at university campuses. Lordship, A very important role of a teacher is to inculcate the spirit of patriotism and nationalism in students (my university never did), which the national flag at educational institute will remind teachers off.

Lordship, The Jat andolan was not about reservation, it was attempt to destroy the non-Jats. I know your neighbours might have shared it with you. You too might have seen reports of women being raped during this, that too when cops were meek onlookers. The DIG asked for proof from media about rapes. Lordship, this is more heinous than what happened to Kanahiya. Send a notice to them as well.

Which community begs to become backward, none, such attempt to get reservation tells us how regressive our policies are. We should do away with reservation.

Lordship, I come from lower-middle-class family, I appeared in admission test for MBBS and scored well. Still I could not become doctor due to the policy of reservation. One scoring 40 marks less than me was given admission because he was a scheduled cast and qualified for reservation (he was a son of a very affluent Govt. official). Lordship that was the day when I for the first time cursed myself for being a Brahmin.

Lordship, prayer is that help us do away with reservations, charge me extra tax for not being SC, ST and OBC, and use this money to educate them, but give my child an equal opportunity. I am sure in your wisdom you will have a way out for this.

Lordship, the last one, encounter at Jammu & Kashmir. As the encounter happened the mosque adjoining to the encounter site encouraged the terrorist to fight against the forces. I hope you read it too. Lordship, what kind of freedom of expression is this? They too deserve a notice from you. Also, Lordship, the politicians who made a beeline to JNU were not seen at the cremation ceremony of any of the martyrs.

I rest my argument Lordship, I leave rest to your wisdom, I am a moron they tell me.

    All men are equal,. why can’t the government be bold enough to consider uniform civil code? Also why is his speech being publicized by the media, the mere fact that that speech was a product of his own faculties is highly questionable.

    Montu the Moron seems very intelligent to me! A lot more intelligent than most of our Lutyens’ media-wallahs and their political masters. But maybe that’s not a fair comparison, the real morons might feel insulted 😉

    Montu the Moron is a really a moron for talking too much sense. I see a quieter version of Arnab Goswami in him.

    True but unfortunate. Neutrality was never a human virtue, only thing is that we have polarisied bit too much.

    Valid question raised, but unfortunately, there is no answer…. we are living in a time when there is no scope for neutrality, it’s like ‘with us’ or ‘against us’ … 😦
