I was looking at the stats of this here blog and was rather amused by the numbers. Here is a snapshot of how the numbers add up.
There are 1,520 posts! That’s not bad. I bet that out of those, around 750 are fairly long articles. I am going to compile them into a handy book. It will be priced at $19.99 and sold at fine bookstores. 🙂
There are 9,095 comments too. Many of them are from discerning readers who have added a lot of value to this blog. Thank you for reading and commenting. My policy is to allow all points of view and I am happy to say that the policy works great. I don’t believe in censorship. The best way to combat nonsense is to expose it to examine it in broad daylight. Some comments are too good to keep buried in the pile. Like this one:
You are a dead hardliner! There is a great bunch of people like you who believe in spreading hatred. You somehow related your communal and fanatic sentiments to Aurangzeb. If you are so eager to take instances from Indian history, then my advice is that don’t be so selective about it. Most of the rulers in this country have been tyrants. Why didn’t you name Asoka?
Apparently, your concern here was not the national security but your petty ideal of Hindu nationalism. This country has had contributions from all communities in its freedom struggle and in the nation building. You are absolutely no one to declare someone a traitor. In fact, i see the people like you as the biggest traitors as you are denying the secular character of our constitution. You are simply using the incident to bring out your frustration as a fanatic. You have a problem with SRK. He is not of your religion. That’s what concerns you the most.
If all your education could not bless you with any rational and liberal thinking, i don’t intend to feed your brain either. I’m just writing this comment because i want to let you know that the world is not occupied with retards like you.
Further, i would like to suggest you to join some retard organisations as well. VHP, RSS and the Senas to name a few. Probably, you are already a part of the herd. So, go ahead and spread hatred as much as you can!
That comment is from one Amit Kumar who, going by his email address, is from some IIT.
India has been ruled for centuries by small bands of invaders. Those invaders could not have held power over such a large population of Indians without the enthusiastic cooperation of Indians. Amit Kumars have been around for as long as India has been around and they have sided with the enemy for some reason. Perhaps it is a sense of inadequacy which leads to self-loathing. That self-loathing manifests as a desire to destroy one’s homeland. Amit Kumar’s ancestors are evidently Hindus but he would fight against Hindus. His ancestors no doubt had Hindu contemporaries who like Amit Kumar took the side of the invaders and converted. The descendants of those converted contemporaries of Amit Kumar’s ancestors are now living in Pakistan — the country that has sworn to destroy India. Amit Kumar’s descendants in time will help those who wish to destroy India.
Pity is that India is in dire straits because of Amit Kumars — people whose self-loathing is so pathological that they would destroy their motherland.
Whether Amit Kumars win or not depends on whether we let them win. What say you?
