Here is the translation of the article written by Mr. Jeyamohan Jeyamohan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

B. Jeyamohan (also credited as Jayamohan; born 22 April 1962) is one of the most influential contemporary, Tamil and Malayalam writer[1] and literary critic from Nagercoil in Kanyakumari District in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
This is the translation of the article: 


I learnt the meaning of “Power” when I visited Delhi in 1994 to receive my Sanskriti Sammaan award and stayed for two days in India International Centre.  

I did have some familiarity with Information and culture ministry. 

However, IIC is the place where “Power” is served on a gold plate.

IIC is located in a peaceful and luxurious bungalow with lawns, high class food and drinks, quietly moving waiters, the butter English spoken without the upper lip moving, lipstick made up women gracefully adjusting their hair, the elegant welcome given to the inner circle members with signs and hugs without making any noise!

I have stayed in many five star hotels later. But I have never seen anywhere the luxury and comfort of IIC.

IIC was established and funded by the Indian government as an independent body to promote arts and free thinking. If my memory serves me right, Dr. Karan Singh was also its head. I saw him in that evening.

I saw every intellectual that I had known through my reading of English language magazines. 

U R Ananthamurthy was staying there for almost four years almost as a permanent fixture. 

Girish Karnad was staying for a few days. 

Writers, journalists and thinkers such as Pritish Nandi, Makarant Paranjpe, Shobha De were seen everywhere in the Centre.

It was true that I was overwhelmed that day. 

Arunmozhi (my wife) ran to Girish Karnad on spotting him and was thrilled to introduce herself to him. 

I was told that Nayantara Sehgal used to come there on daily basis to have a drink. 

I saw her that day too. 

I  realized that the two other individuals who were given the award along with me, Rajdeep Sardesai and Anamika Haksar were regulars there.

They wore rough Kolkata kurtas and Kolhapuri chappals. 

Wore small glasses. 

Women in pure white hair and khadi saris. 

One of them, they said, was Kapila Vatsyayan. 

They said, Pupul Jayakar will also come. 

Wherever you turn, there were literary talks and art discussions.

That pomp kind of unnerved me. 

The ultra high intellectualism seen there somewhat alienated me. 

Venkat Swaminathan, who saw me the next day, immediately recognised my sense of discomfort. 

He said, "Hey, three fourth of this crowd is just a perfect horde of crows (the Tamil equivalent of sychophants). These snobs make their living and draw their power by licking the boots of power centres. Most of them are mere power brokers. At best you may find one or two artists who you will really respect. And they can't bear this atmosphere for too long and will just run away .

But these are the people who decide what is culture for this country. 

They can talk about every thing in the world for one hour in colourful English with the right number of jargons. But on the 61st minute, their colour will start fading. 

Actually they don't know anything in the real sense. 

Almost all are like the little boxes we find in attics which held hing a long time back", said Venkat Swaminathan.

Everyone will have four or five trusts in the name of Service Organizations or Cultural Organizations.

They will be flying from one conference to the other. 

Once given accommodation in a government bungalow, they can never be removed from there. 

In Delhi alone this crowd has illegally occupied about 5,000 bungalows. 

There is another Power Centre similar to this in Delhi which is called the JNU. It is the same story there too.
" Can't the government get rid of them?", I asked. 

He said, "normally governments do not think in that line. Because this crowd has stuck itself from the time of Nehru. They support one another. Even if some IAS officials try, they will fall at the right feet and escape".

"There is one more thing added to it" said Venkat Swaminathan. 

"Not only were these people just parasites, they also derive great power by showing themselves as progressive leftists. Did you notice it?". 

I said "Yes" with an amazement.

They are known throughout the world through the numerous seminars they attend. 

They are highly networked. 

Journalists around the world seek their opinion on whatever happens in India. 

They are the people who gave a leftist mask to the Congress Government. 

If you look at it that way, the amount spent on them is quite low for what they have done for the
Congress government”, he said. 

They are the trolls sitting on the head of India and nobody can do anything to them. 

They decide what is art or culture or trends of thought in India.

I have often been to IIC with my Malayalam journalist friends. For them, this is the place to pick rumours and convert them into news. They know there are no secrets as the day wears out and the spirits rise higher and higher in the head.

But I can only pity those people who engage in the political debates based on the supposedly rare gems of wisdoms dished out by these “intellectuals” through the middle pages of English newspapers. 

These intellectuals never actually know the real politics. They just shout on the basis of the superfluous knowledge and talking points points, with the prime space and conspicuous position enabled by their network. 

That’s all.

Long time back when I wrote about this Circle, I had mentioned that Barkha Dutt is none but a power broker, my own friends fought with me for degrading a “progressive fighter”. 

Fortunately for me, within a few days, the brokering she did with Tata leaked out through the Nira Radia tapes. (Incidentally, what happened to that case, does anybody know?). 

But even those stark revelations could not bring down Barkha Dutt from her exalted pedestal even for a month. 

That is the kind of power they have.

But now, for the first time in the history of independent India someone has dared to touch this power circle. 

Warnings were circulated at the lower level for about the last 6 months. 

Last week the Culture Ministry decided to send a notice to them. 

This, perhaps, is the reason for these intellectuals to suddenly flare up against “intolerance”.

For example, painter Jatin Das, father of actress Nandita Das is occupying a large government bungalow at one of the premium locations in Delhi free of cost for many years. 

Government has sent an eviction notice to him. 

This is the real reason for Nandita Das strongly speaking about intolerance on television channels and writing in English newspapers (all diligently carried by the networks).

Even for a man as strong as Modi, I think, has touched a wrong nerve. 

These elements are too powerful. 

They can destroy India through the media worldwide. 

They can create a picture that rivers of blood are flowing in India. 

They can make businessmen around the world to halt. 

They can wreck the tourism industry. 

The truth is there is no other power centre like this one in India.

Tolerating these people, so called "intellectuals" is unavoidable for India. 

And Modi’s intolerance of them is extremely dangerous – not only for him but for the country itself, as they can subtly blackmail both and keep them as their virtual hostages..

Friends, I urge ye to read the posting above with care and circulate. Please read the thousands of comments related to the original article as well.
These 3M (Missionary / Mullah / Marxist) crows are all flapping their wings and cawing in unison now. They clearly see that their reign of the last 65+ years since Indian independence is threatened with extinction. 
Our resident semi-literate Italian cocktail waitress' shiftless son is a worthless, incompetent, intellectual dimwit. Rahul Gandhi of the Khangress Party can barely open his mouth without putting his foot in it. He can't walk and chew gum at the same time. He has to have 2-month vacations (in the middle of Budget season of Parliament) to de-stress from his idling.
Leftists, Marxists, Nehruvians, Gandhians, Nehru family degenerates, Medha Patkarite woolly headed fifth wheel to the cart peaceniks, have never experienced such withering contemptuous public criticism and insult before. 
The Bollywood King Khans have found this out as well to their cost. This is why they are crawling obsequiously on their hands and knees begging forgiveness in sackcloth and ashes.
All these have been used to lording it over the obsequious peasants, in awe of the 'gori chamdi memsahib' (pejorative for white skin female for those ignorant of Hindi / Urdu). Suddenly Oxbridge accents don't count for beans anymore. On the contrary their broken anglicized Hindi / Tamil is being (rightly spat on).
This is why I sometimes feel that a Russian style October revolution (poetic justice for these anti-Hindu, Muslim appeasing vermin) or Indonesian pogrom against Communists may be the only solution to rid of these Nehruvian, Gandhian bloodsuckers on the Indian body politic.
These vermin have been ceaselessly multiplying without let or hindrance since independence, so that there is a veritable plague of them in India roday. Ruthless and brutal action without quarter or mercy to squelch and get rid of these noisome cancerous infestations masquerading as "culture vultures" on the body of India seems to be the only solution. The French Revolution against the effete and decadent aristocrats is an excellent cleansing pointer. Or the Chinese campaign against the Gang of 4 henchmen manipulators of Mao Ze Dong's legacy.
Since on the whole I eschew violence except in the context of hot war, there seems only one solution to get rid of these Nehruvian, Gandhian socio-cultural and religious leftist vermin, today to be seen hovering around our semi-literate Italian barmaid Khangress Party President. It will take a little longer, with no violence, but in its way because of a lack of physical violence and conjoint relentless psychological and emotional pressure more corrosive.
The solution is open and unremitting ridicule, public humiliation and insult, 24 X 7 X 365, bending the law to the extent possible, without inviting the wrath of the Supreme Court. If these foul wretches try anything, then catch them in the act and crush them without mercy or remorse.
More than a decade ago there was a seminal article in The Wall Street Journal on how this tactic is effectively applied in Mainland China.
Today it is only the Shiv Sena in Mumbai and Maharashtra which knows how to do this, and do it well. We should encourage the Shiv Sena to franchise their very effective way of street action. “Now let it work. Mischief, thou art afoot, 
Take thou what course thou wilt!”
We will need at least a decade of such action without expecting the Modi administration to get into the act, as it should not. As the old proverb goes, "Caesar's wife must be above suspicion".
Such mental tension and pressure will result in all manner of physical and mental maladies driving these worthless deshadrohi anti-Hindu wretches into early graves through cancer, heart attack, diabetes, depression, and other progressive degenerative diseases. But, squeak "intolerance" they will.
Jai Hind
