RIGHT TO SELF DETERMINATION By Robert Lindsay, California

I have always opposed Indian imperialism and colonialism. India cannot even manage itself. Why doesn’t it let go of a few hundred million humans or so? Would that not be easier to manage.

Kashmir, Goa, Hyderabad, Andaman Islands, Laccadive Islands etc was never even a part of India in the first place, nor was the North East (Sikkim,Nagaland, Arunachal, Assam, Manipur etc). There was never any such thing as India ever. In 1947, it was 3000 princely states. They voted on whether or not to join this shit state called India and some of them voted not to join. India then invaded every state that refused to join India, killed a lot of people, and forced them to join. Both Kashmir and the NE refused to join India, but India invaded and attacked both places and killed lots of people to force them to join its shit state.

This the 20th Century. Indians are still practicing conquest, annexation and settlement of land and gaining territory by conquest when the rest of the world gave it up long ago. Almost every single Indian on Earth with defend the Indian monster state and its endless imperial conquests. Indians are sick people, practicing long dead ideologies of imperial conquest and annexation. Monsters. Backwards, primitive monsters.

Indeed but the world is not supposed to act this way anymore. Conquest, annexation, settler-colonialism, wars of territorial expansion are all banned.
What shall we say to the throwbacks?

Settler colonialism went out in the West in 1890 and in the UN in 1945. India, Israel, Morocco and Indonesia are all throwbacks.

Even with right to self-determination, India will only lose the NE and Kashmir. About Punjab, it is hard to say. But those are the only places that even want to go anyway.

Canada, the UK, the USSR and Czechoslovakia all allowed or allow self determination. There was separation in those places with generally little bloodshed. Only White people are civilized enough to allow nations to break up and to allow the self determination of nations. So only White people are truly humanistic. Indians are all animals because they react to self determination with extreme violence.

I support the right to self-determination. From the very beginning of India, Kashmiris rejected joining India. 90% of them voted to not be a part of India, but India forced Kashmir to join India. India has no right to Kashmir. It’s not a Hindu-Muslim thing. It’s similar to the Basque/Spaniard or Catalan/Spaniard conflict.

I support self-determination for Kashmir and the Northeast.

Our Freedom Fighters Failed Us – by A. Veronica Fernandes, Candolim

Who is responsible for the current ugly happenings in Goa? Surely, if not fully then at least partially the living Freedom Fighters of Goa for not doing enough after the ouster of Portuguese from Goa. It was not the Freedom Fighters who uprooted Portuguese from Goa but the mighty Military power of Bharat though falsely the Freedom Fighters take credit for this.  Before going further let me be frank in paying my highest respect for all those Freedom Fighters who were sincere in their mission for the betterment of Goa and Goans.
That Portuguese rule in Goa had to come to an end was a sure fact otherwise I would also join the freedom struggle but after driving out the colonialists I will not sleep content with Pension and Tamrapatra. Instead I would mount more pressure on Indian government either to leave from Goan soil as it did in Bangladesh or to give us greater autonomy on the pattern of Macau or Pondichery at least, as assured by Nehru. But I would never remain silent on the re-colonisation process of Goa by the Bharatis who are now lording over every segment of our Goa.
By upsetting the demographic structure of Goa the Bharatis are de-Goanising Goa by creating more and more facilities for non-Goans to settle down permanently in Goa exactly the way Israel did in Palestine to dePalestine the homeland of Palestinians by inducting more and more third rate Jews from outside. This was the cunningness on the part of Israeli leaders to commit a silent genocide on original Palestinians in Palestine. India is also following the same method in Goa. The major portion of the Bharatis who are permanently settling down in Goa are from lower and mediocre segment for whom Goa is like a Heaven. They get lot of facilities because they are bribed easily and to extort money and sex is easy from them. 
What was the quality of our Freedom Fighters to think high for Goa and Goans? Some of them in the garb of Freedom Fighters robbed the innocent people and even killed them. In Siolim in late fifties who killed the local Regidor? Again in Siolim Soddiem who captured the house of Casador Manuel Xavier and robbed his both Guns? Who robbed the Banco Ultrmarino during the day time by showing Guns to the Bank employees? Who came to the Salgaocar’s home with Guns to demand money? Who were those who were robbing people near the Hilltop behind Parra Church? And who were the Krimidores who cut the tongue of a “Poder” in Anjuna falsely accusing him to be an informer to the Portuguese Police? While accusing many Freedom Fighters of committing cruel acts I salute the genuine ones. They have suffered so much from the hands of Agente Monteiros and sacrificed so much for the sake of Goa but are they happy that their goals are achieved?
Some of them are feeling sorry to see the Goa they dreamt is not realized. They openly show their regret but why not act to put pressure on the government to bring changes in Goa of their choice? One of them was cursing present Goa and Goan rulers but none of them is coming forward to conduct at least a peaceful Dharna in Panjim to draw the attention of the concerned authorities to their grievances? I know they are not young now, I also know they are ageing but they can organize their movement peacefully. If nothing works then they must surrender their Tammrapatras and even Pensions because their goals are not achieved and as such it is wrong to receive the Awards. Those who are regretting now to involve in freedom movement for Goa are not even ashamed to disclose their regret. They should have committed suicide, at least this will prove their sincerity.
Many of the Goans especially the Non-Christians got themselves involved in Goa’s freedom movement to create Hindu Raj in Goa, most of them are having their roots in neighbouring Marathi land for this reason they supported merger of Goa with Maharashtra.  They are anti-Christians having an impression that Goan Christians are Pro-Portuguese. But they failed to realise that the Goan Christians who participated in Goa’s freedom movement were genuine freedom fighters with genuine secular credentials.
The first Goans who revolted against Portuguese rule in Goa were Pintos from Candolim headed by the Catholic Priests, including another Candoikar Abade Faria, all coming from the same Vaddo Pintos in Candolim.  When they failed in their mission they were caught and tortured and hanged.  Which other Non-Christian freedom fighter faced such a harsh punishment? Goan Christians are not Pro-Portuguese but those who were controlling Trade and Commerce during the Portuguese time in Goa some of them even supplying Sex to Portuguese Pakles are Pro-Portuguese.  The contribution of Goan Christians in fighting against Portuguuese rule in Goa is second to none.  Dr. Francisco Luis Gomes even went to Portugal and raised his voice in favour of freedom for Goa.
If it was not for Salazar, Goa would have been in depended long ago, the enemy of Goa was Salazar and not the current Portuguese government.  Many of the members of current Portuguuese government were the victims of Salazar’s ferocity.  They also suffered from Salazar’s regime.  Showing hatred for them is not correct; they are democratically elected in the democratically political system of Portugal.  They maintain good friendly relationship between Portugal and Goa and as such the “ROSTAD” type of Goan freedom fighters should not bark against them. 
These ROSTAD must know first that it is not Portugal that needs Goa and Goans but it is Goans who need Portugal. The Goans having Portuguese Passports are not the security threat for Goa and India but the real security threat for Goa and India are those Goans who are corrupting the entire Goan system.   The real threat for Goa are the ROSTAD Goan politicians who are looting Goa.  These corrupt Goans must be thrown out from Goa by shutting down their operations, buildings, offices and residential bungalows and not the Portuguese Consulate in Goa.
Is there any Freedom Fighter who can campaign against those politicians who are looting Goa?  If they have marbles in their Pants then they must raise their voice against all the Goans who are guilty of looting Goan wealth. Shouting against Portuguese Passports and Portuguese Consulate is the job of the cheap persons.  And besides, who gave an authority to these Freedom Fighters to act as spokesmen of Goa? 
They must first apologize to Goans for not doing their job properly. They must first destroy the places named after Portuguese people to woo the tourists from Europe. Most of the Goan Freedom Fighters are cowards, some of them had a very bad reputation because in the name of Freedom Fighters they harmed innocent Goans, robbed innocent Goans and killed innocent Goans If they don’t stop their Tamasha of showing their hatred for everything Portuguese then people will stone them.  

Is India A Democracy? by Robert Lindsay, California

I suppose compared to places like the Arab World, Iran, most of Africa, Guatemala, Honduras, Colombia, Indonesia, Brazil and Paraguay, it’s a relatively democratic place, considering the nightmarish conditions of  average Third World shithole country, an assemblage that India is a part of.  Do high caste Hindus really want a Democracy in India? When in human history have upper class elites ever supported Democracy? Leaving that aside, the notion that Indian Democracy should safeguard what it has and build on it is a noble one.
India’s handling of the language question was a superb showcase of Democracy, especially compared to the utter failure of neighbours like Myanmar, Pakistan and Nepal on the language question. India’s handling of the language issue, after a false start, was a par exemplar for the Third World. Let us give credit where it is due!
I acknowledge that India is a relatively Democratic place.
But let’s face it, at the rural level, India is not very Democratic and never has been, possibly ever in its entire blighted history. Rural India is a horrid dictatorship of high caste thugs and their private armies. They have the state, cops and courts on their side, and peaceful protest is useless. This is after all why the Maoists took up guns in the first place, after decades of futile peaceful protest.
Almost all of the Congressmen in India are known criminals – thieves who have stolen typically millions of dollars.
My understanding is that peaceful demos are regularly attacked by police. Is this true or not?
And there is some pretty nasty stuff going on Kashmir. Young men being abducted off the street, tortured and murdered, then dropped on the side of the road. Their crime? Throwing rocks I guess.
Hindu Nationalist gangs regularly run rampant through India’s cities and rural areas, threatening, beating and even murdering Christians and Muslims, burning down their property and even their villages. They have the full support of the local Hindu Police and State in these actions. How is this Democracy?
Here in the USA, rural America is not ruled by a dictatorship of upper class thugs. The vast majority of Congress are not obvious thieves and criminals. The bribery that goes on 100 million times a day in India is a crime in the USA. In Indian state hospitals, you either bribe the doctors to take care of your sick relative, or they will leave them to die. What’s so “Democratic” about that? What good is my marching off to vote once every few years if I have to bribe state doctors not to kill my relative? Good Lord.
At Indian universities, Dalits have their own gangs of thugs. Professors are threatened to pass on Dalit students with good grades. If they do not comply, they are beaten or worse. Hence, India’s education system is largely a joke, its degrees watered down with threats, fake marks and mass bribery.
In the wonderful Indian Democracy, we have recently heard that most large Indian newspapers are charging politicians for favourable coverage. No bribes to journalists, and you get negative stories. Pay off the Fourth Estate and expect plenty of nice fat puff pieces. We have not even descended that far here in the USA yet, and we’ve sunk pretty low. This is Democratic?
How is it Democratic that “supporters” of the Maoists are regularly beaten, tortured, raped and murdered? Exactly what crime have they committed? Can you cite the crime that says it is illegal to be a “supporter” of the Maoists? What does it mean to be a “supporter?” Can you spell it out for me please? If it’s illegal to be a Maoist supporter, why can’t you just arrest them and put them on trial? If it’s a crime deserving of death to be a Maoist “supporter” (Define please), why should the Maoists not have a right to kill ever government “supporter,” whatever that means? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, no?
My understanding is that journalists who merely report on Maoist rebels are now being accused of violating Emergency Laws. For instance, Arundhati Roy is being threatened with arrest by the high caste criminal gangsters who run Chattisargh.
Please tell me exactly what crimes Mrs. Arundhati Roy has committed in writing in her articles. Specify the precise laws she violated, how and why.
Say I want to go to India as a journalist. Explain to me, if I plan to write about Maoists, how it is I can do so without violating the law. Explain what the laws are and how we journalists can somehow not run afoul of them.
Meantime, I will have to think over that “Indian Democracy” bit just a little.

CHINA VS INDIA By Jeff Fernandes

 Culturally speaking, the Chinese are more industrious, more meritocratic, more egalitarian, more practical, more disciplined, and more secular. The Chinese articulate a vision, set goals, and then go about achieving them relentlessly. The Indians make idle boasts and delusional forecasts and then vegetate: no one seemed to have taught them that the cart shouldn’t come before the horse.
For China, the erstwhile Maoist system, while monstrously flawed, secured an economic foundation by vastly improving nutrition, numeracy, literacy, healthcare, and advancing women’s rights. Deng Xiaoping’s post-Mao reforms would not have succeeded without the aforementioned accomplishments serving as a steppingstone.
India, on the other hand, is just fucked up, OK? Just straight up FUBAR. It’s still plagued by the caste system and mired in sexism. After some 60 years of self-rule, India still hasn’t managed the basics: 58% of Indian children suffer from malnutrition; 20% of Indians go hungry everyday; functional literacy rate is around a pathetic 50%; 1/3 of the population have no access to electricity; 1/3 of the country is controlled by various insurgencies, etc.
With such atrocious fundamentals, all the Hindutva drivel about India Rising and India Shining will remain just that, drivel.
Whereas Chinese leaders are selected primarily based on merit and qualifications, Indian politics is largely a family affair (e.g. the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty) in which performance is irrelevant but blood ties all important.
Despite the much ballyhooed Indian “democracy”, the Chinese system is far more accountable and responsive. Case in point, when the emergency management system was deemed deficient during the recent flood in Beijing, the mayor was fired; when Bangalore experiences annual floods, the local honchos are re-elected, repeatedly, by promising handouts to largely poor and illiterate vote banks.
The Chinese know what they want: to get rich and to reclaim their former position as the hegemon. They are open to adopt whatever systems or methods that can propel them there: this is the essence of Deng’s motto that it doesn’t matter if a cat is black or white, so long it catches mice.
The Indians, by contrast, have never articulated a collective vision and are therefore content with a hodgepodge of caste-based feudalism, socialist license raj, and neoliberal excesses: a little something to appease every constituency and ideological group.
And just to miff the Hindutvas and PC banshees, let me close by pointing out that Chinese are generally more intelligent and have a much tougher mental constitution, which undoubtedly contribute to their superior performance vis-a-vis the Indians.
P.S. For those of you interested in enlightening cross-cultural comparisons between India and China, read Mr. Navneet Bakshi’s blog. Mr. Bakshi is an Indian who had lived and worked in China long-term. He endears with his brutal honesty and incisive observations.

Well I have been shouting from rooftops about 2 serious issues related to Goa for some years now !
1) Dual citizenship for Goan's (which must include the process Identifying Goan's who are descendants of people living in Goa before 18 Dec 1961.(also not to forget Goan's who had migrated to different parts of the world, including British India, then the newly formed India/Indian Union which gained the status of a republic only on 26th Jan 1950.
The present day demarcation of Goa is existing since 1788.
* The Communidades the Goa/Gaocares are existing since 1400's according to studies conducted, present day 223 are existing in Goa.(Socio-agricultural-economic-institutes)
They are similar to autonomous regions of Spain.
I am happy that many Goan's have begun to take interest to know the real truth behind the latest issue of dual citizenship & the confusion the BJP govt has been trying to create,
1)They & centre wants to deal with Goan's acccording to the Indian Citizenship act of 1955 & Citizenship rules 2009.
2) You must be aware that the centre is against the idea/request from Goan's a special status, whereas we Goan's actually deserve autonomy(in subjection with the descendants of people living in Goa before 18 dec 1961)
The simple logical questions are as follows.
1) Was Goa a part of the Indian union on 26th Jan 1950 when India adopted a constitution/republic ???
2) Was Goa a part of Indian Union in 1955 ???
3 Why are Indians now contradicting the judgement by SC of India Union ???
3 cases. of which i know where it has clearly stated that: Indian Union has taken over/anexed/Invaded/Conquest over Goa by using military force on 18 Dec 1961.
4) Who are these people at the centre to dictate terms to Goans ???
*Also Read about Hyderabad which was annexed under operation Polo 1948.
* MYSORE joined the Indian Union in 1956.
* Try to find out more on other states who were annexed/merged into Indian Union after 15 Aug 1947
* Please don't forget to read the treaty signed in 1974 between external affairs minister of India, Y.B Chavan & External affairs minister of Portugal Dr Mario Soares.
(PS:Dr Mario Soares was an unelected representative & YB chavan was the CM of Bombay as it was known then, the MGP in Goa passed a bill to merge Goa with Maharastra1966, but the front door entry was closed through an illegal opinion poll by Goans,this dirty trick engineered by then PM: Indhira Gandhi instead of fulfilling the promise of Plebiscite by Nehru prior to Indian Union Invading Goa)
Sadly none of the Goan MLA's serving office were aware of this treaty, neither the Gaocars from the Communidades were taken into consideration.
This is the time i can say that Bastard Mario Soares sold our Goa to Indians.
Talking about NATO/VETO & THE MATTER AT UN is for another day !
Guess its high time Niz Goemkars take a close look at the case of Goa again & come up with amendments where ever required !
Thank you for reading this lengthy post.
Could be thought provoking for some 
RSS-BJP Bhakts or right wing ideologist can get lost !!!

We Are Living In A Very Dangerous Time Says Arundhati Roy

We Are Living In A Very Dangerous Time Says Arundhati Roy
“We are living in a very dangerous time, we cant say things Dr Ambedkar could say during British rule” Renowned activist and writer, Arundhati Roy has said that the situation in India today was worse than the time the country was ruled by British. Speaking at the release of the Tamil translation of her annotated book on BR Ambedkar’s essay Annihilation of Caste, Roy said that she was not able to speak freely because of the criminal case against her.
Describing the present situation ‘very dangerous,’ the celebrated author said, “We are living in a very dangerous time, language is twisted, videos are doctored. Everything that I say is twisted around. I’m already facing criminal trials. “Officially we are not a colony, but we can’t say today, nobody can say today what Dr Ambedkar said in 1936. What would happen if somebody said like he (Ambedkar) said in Annihilation of Caste that to the untouchable the Hinduism is a veritable chamber of horrors. That person would be put into the jail. Today in the debate on national, the RSS says that you have to say Bharat Mata Ki Jai, otherwise you are not an Indian.”
Sharing a conversation between Mahatma Gandhi and Ambedkar during a conference in London, Roy said how the architect of the constitution had once said that he had no homeland because of the plight of untouchables in India.
She said, “In 1932 when Ambedkar and Gandhi met in London, when they had the first confrontation over the round table conference, Gandhi asked him why he was criticising the Congress. Which meant criticising the homeland. He (Ambedkar) said ‘Gandhiji I have no homeland. No untouchable worth his name would be proud of this land.’ ”
Roy also said that the Indian army had been used against its own people every day since 1947 adding that its use was similar to that of British in World Wars.
She said, “Since 1947 there has not been a single day when the Indian army has not been deployed against its ‘own people.’ Not a single day from 1947 till now. The army has been deployed in Nagaland, Mizoram, Assam, Manipur, Kashmir, Junagarh, Goa, Punjab. Now they are preparing the battles in Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Jharkhand.
“And if you look at who are these people that the Indian army has been deployed against. It’s always Christians, Adivasis, Muslims, Sikhs. Dalits. Always, it’s a might of an upper caste against the others. nd how have they operated? Just like an coloniser. Soldiers from Tamil Nadu to Kashmir, Assam to Nagaland, Nagaland to Jharkhand, just like the British did in the World Wars.”
She said that she wanted to say lot but feared that her words may be twisted around. Roy also felt that the current system in India was the result of the unmatched dominance of the upper caste.
She said, “If you look here, who own the capital, who owns the land, who owns the system which runs the government? Who owns the media? Who runs the courts, who are professors, who are the editors? It’s a shocking situation. We don’t even understand what’s being done to us.”
On Dalits’ plight, Roy said that it was unfortunate how the debate on their plight had been reduced to reservation adding that only ‘2-3 percent benefit’ from reservation as most drop out before reaching university because of ‘the way they are treated.’

Isn’t Liberation A Cruel Joke When Goa Is In Chains? – by A. Veronica Fernandes, Candolim

On 19th December 2015, Goa completed 54 years of its conquest by India from Portugal. (Supreme Court of India – Monsg. S.F.X. Monteiro V/s State of Goa 26 March 1969).  This was followed as seen above, by the treacherous the so called Indo-Portuguese Treaty of 31st December 1974.
As a direct result – with every passing day, it becomes glaringly clear that the sole objective of both the signatories of the so called Indo-Portuguese Treaty of 31stDecember 1974 was to ensure their own individual and national interests. And in their scheme of things, Goa and Goans were chosen as their SACRIFICIAL LAMBS!  Very ironically but not surprisingly, both India and Portugal vociferously claim to be Democratic countries and both are signatories of the Charter of the UNO.
Also, with every passing day it becomes glaringly clear to those who are honest enough to see the continuous, wanton destruction of all that is Goa and Goans; and to those who are enough to hear the agonizing silent cries of Goans whose pleas and protests are ignored, mocked at and bull-dozed by powers-that be.
i)       The scarce land of ours is grabbed by the land-sharks from across the borders and by the Armed Forces using their money, political and muscle power;
ii)                Our ancient Ghaunkari (Communidades) Institution zealously guarded by our ancestors and respected by the different Dynasties that ruled Goa over thousands of years as well  as by the Portuguese Government during its 451 years of rule, are now being systematically dismantled despite our written and verbal protests;
iii)             Our lives and limbs are in perpetual danger;
iv)             Our moveable and immoveable properties are robbed by those who descend even by vehicles from across our borders and/or by taking advantage of our still – trusting nature;
v)      Our peaceful, happy, convivial relationships among all Goans regardless of our different religious affiliations are being poisoned with communal virus by Right – Wing Organisations at a dangerous alarming pace.
vi)             Anxiety and fear rules our hearts and minds;
vii)           The population of Goans that was about six (6) lakhs in 1961 is now well beyond fourteen (14) lakhs of which the population of Non-Goans is over 50% and literally growing daily in leaps and bounds;
viii)   Because we are peaceful, non-violent, civilized people, unable and unaccustomed to killing, burning, rioting, we feel alone and forsaken by the Community of Nations, despite undoubtedly being aware of the misery and injustice heaped on us.
