A Special Interview With Diggy Raja

Last weekend, Diggy Raja responded to the email I sent to him a year back. That too he chose the snail mail. Yes, that's right. I received a postcard for the email! He wrote that he would allow me to interview him. He also gave me the place and time. Every month he visits a renowned psychiatrist for schizophrenia related ailments. While returning he would have some time and that's when he would answer my questions. I was glad. So I went to the clinic, showed the postcard and surprisingly was put into the van where he was sitting. He was restrained with steel chains. But he seemed to be sitting comfortably. A mark of habit perhaps.

Me: Thank you very much Diggy Raja for allowing me to interview you. It is an honor.
DR: Aaaaaarrrggghh.(Eyes turn red) Hide your shirt...I said hide your shirt.....(he was screaming and crying at the same time)

Me: I was wearing a normal brown shirt with a 'OM' symbol etched in yellow. I buttoned my jacket to hide my shirt.
DR: Much better...(smiles)

Me: So Diggy Sir why did you suddenly remember me now? I wrote to you a year ago.
DR: That time you were under the chatrachaya(influence) of the Sangh Parivar. Now you are not.

Me: I was? And now I am not? Why do you come to this conclusion?
DR: Because you said that Congress has achieved a lot in your blog.

Me: But I also wrote more than that. I mean did you read the whole post?
DR: Of course, I see you are not yet fully cured by this new disease. Its called Namonia.

Me: We have seen that your knack for defaming the Hindutvadis is slacking. Is this true?
DR: What is your hobby?

Me: Many - watching movies, reading about World War 2,...(Diggy Raja stops)
DR: Wait. I am not used to keeping more than a couple of phrases in mind. Happens when a lady with a foreign accent always dictates you. You know the world wars? They were actually caused by RSS. The concentration camps? Who ran them? The VHP. And now as Shinde said they are running terror camps in Indian Occupied India... er India. You know past experience helps. Where do you think the Swastika came from? Hitler. (Smiles on seeing my expression, I am aghast)
See, I know. I also talked about this with Shinde and he agrees too. Not only Congress people. Even Pawar has been convinced that even in the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand there was hand of Modi. No wonder they are so successful.

Me: But what you are claiming makes no sense at all. The RSS or Modi were not even in existence then.
DR: Oh they were there johny boy. They were just not properly named yet. Know the SS of Hitler. That was a part of the RSS. Even today RSS is a part of almost website in the world.


Me: But that's a different RSS...(cut short)
DR: No boy...they are all the same. The same side of different coins! Anyway you look at you will find their handiwork. Who is harassing the minorities in India? RSS. Pakistan? RSS. Bangladesh? RSS. Even in Syria A(r)ssad is killing Muslims. Look at Israel. In Egypt, Russia the entire world has become a playground for fascist Hindutva. Remember how they destroyed the World Trade Center and the Masjid-e-Janmsthan?

Me: Ah well(ignoring the WTC) the Babr-i-Masjid was destroyed in Narsimha Rao's regime and hence Congress also should share blame.
DR: Don't make that mistake. We can and we did find scapegoats. So don't blame our secular credentials when we kills Sikhs and Hindus or Muslims etc. They don't count. Because I can't count. I mean literally. I don't know math.

Me: Ah, so how do you know how many were killed by Modi?
DR: I called Teesta about that. She told. She never lies.
We read that Black Hand or some other underground organization shot the Archduke. But Diggy Raja says that this guy also belonged to the RSS.


Me: But the court has debunked many of her claims - to put it mildly.
DR: You see I was about to say that. That was because the people wielding power be it Narsimha Rao or other were hypnotized by BJP's secret weapon. Only I have unearthed it. I have not told anyone. Not even to my dogs. (The two constables sitting on either side of Diggy Raja began to grin. I looked inquisitively and they said - 'Bol bolke to dimaag kharab kar diya hain' means by constantly saying the same thing he has screwed our brain.) I quickly looked back at Diggy Raja.

Me: Ok so what is this secret weapon?
DR: It is a Brainwasher. It can reprogram your brain with the Hindutva virus. Once you all are infected we all are finished. It is almost like becoming zombies. Hindutvadis eat Muslims.

Me: Oh so communal zombies, eh?
DR: Exactly. No one has been so receptive to my ideas. They thought I can't think, so I was made to speak and made a spokesperson. But I was not to be let down so easily. I also used my brain and issued my opinions. I was fired.

Suddenly on route we could hear chants of Hare Krishna. Diggy made a constipated face and remarked, "Can't these communal forces play the Azaan? Wait, next time we will make these places Secular only." Suddenly the blood pressure of Diggy Raja fell. The medical orderly was sleeping all along. He woke up suddenly. Strangely he cupped his tested hands and chanted into the ear of Diggy - "Modi is coming....Modi is coming...Modi..." in varying tones. Diggy's blood pressure increased instantly by 500%. He was given a sedative and put to sleep. Before I thought the interview was over he waved his hand making a gesture that said - "Be around, I will be back."

Salesmen of God

Christian evangelicals are similar to parasites[1]. The similarities are simply astounding. Among all predatory religions, Evangelical Christianity has done, by far, the greatest harm to humankind[2]. Like leeches, the Evangelical sucks the lifeblood of an unchristian society till it descends either into chaos and incessant civil conflict or the relegation of the culture to the pages of history(Bowden, 1985). Even in the 21st century this unashamed activity continues(Bhosle, 2003).[3]
Evangelicals usually have a similar methodology when it comes to proselytization. Like parasites, the target is usually one belonging to the most vulnerable section of society. This does not necessarily mean that they try harvesting only the most down trodden of the society(Kelly, 2001). And most certainly, the objective is never the upliftment of the persons involved. The target groups may, for example, belong to ethnic minorities, refugees (both economic and political), caste groups, the poor and the si…

Ali The Kargil Boy

I met Ali in the Leh airport,he drove us in our hotel. The very next morning we went for sightseeing. He used to drive very fast. I repeatedly told him to drive slow, he followed for  a short time; again continued in his own speed.
On the way to Nubra valley the road was very stiff and the altitude was very high. As I was sick before our tour it was difficult for me to bear that fast ride.After coming back I complained our tour  operator for his driving and asked for another driver.




Our tour operator assured me that he would tell him to drive  comfortably.The next day Ali came drove the car and I enjoyed my entire remaining  trip.
Sometimes he used to push the accelerator and I just told "Ali.....ahista"...he became consous. We used to chat during this long drive. I asked him "How old are you Ali?he replied "22years mam."He told me "At the age of 16 I started driving without lisence,I used to drive big vehicles ,now I drive tourist cars during the seas…

When birds come home

It is mid March in Mumbai. It is supposed to be hot and humid. As it usually is all the year round with monsoon and December exceptions.
But it's cloudy today. To be fair, yesterday was also cloudy but today is dark. As dark as it usually is just before a downpour. It may rain and I don't have an umbrella with me. It's not that a change of weather is bad. I like rains. But the suddenness is rather strange.
I am not the only one confused with the weather change. The birds seem to be totally messed up by the onset of darkness. It was about 9 AM in the morning. The birds had just perched on the trees for their daily routine. The cloud came. They possibly understood that to be the beginning of the evening and end of day. Next thing I know, I see hundreds (yes, literally hundreds) of birds rushing back to their nests.
This is not a unique scene. I have seen this umpteen number of times in the monsoons. This is the first time I have noticed it in March (as far as I can remember) an…
