India’s PM delivers UN speech in HINDI.
And, to me, it was our ‘half langda’ PM delivering a ‘full langda’ UN speech, though it is widely said that the speech has been very forceful and delivered likewise. But having seen the live telecast, I have made my critical judgment as above. When we are dealing with a double crossing terrorist aiding “CHIKANEER” Musharraf, the speech should have been delivered forcefully. And when I say “langda” I don’t mean the transcript of the speech itself. It might have been forceful. But I am talking of the delivery, which was merely a ‘church reading’, which anyone could have done, even better.
There are precedents that have been set by our former PMs for UN speeches. As a little boy, I was fascinated to hear people talking about PM Jawaharlal Nehru, having waved or banged his chappal on the desk to make his point, while delivering his speech at the UN, confronting the charge by the Portuguese that Goa belonged to Portugal. And ofcourse, Nehru could’nt have made his point at the UN speaking in HINDI. Hindi or not, I would have thought that Laloo Prasad Yadav would have done better than Vajpayee. Atleast one Indian panelist reporting from the UN also felt the same way. Not the Laloo bit, ofcourse, but the lack of forcefulness in the delivery.
And, the Sunday papers are screaming the headlines “PM regrets Gujarat riots” when confronted by NRI Indians in New York. His number two, Lal Krishna Advani, has likewise, already done the shedding of the crocodile tears, a little earlier. All we hear is face saving “REGRETS” while these charlies are even now encouraging and pushing the GUJARAT NAZI for more blood. If I was invited for the Lalit Mansingh reception in New York for the occasion of honouring Vajpayee, I would have carried at least a rotten tomato and a rotten egg as a sincere gift for Vajpaiyeeji.
And, as if, all this tamasha of shedding crocodile tears by these two prime clowns who are sitting in the driving seat of the nation with the world superpower potential, is not enough, another clown who is the new BJP President, Mr. Venkaiah Naidu is seen with the GUJARAT NAZI professing that the Nazi will stay in business of butchering muslim men, women children and unborn fetuses, if BJP won the Gujarat elections. And the way the NAZIS are at work in censoring exposure of the write-ups, films, conferences and seminars, to expose the Gujarat cleansing factor, in Mumbai, Goa and everywhere, the regretting clowns should be given a double treat of rotten tomatoes and eggs.
I, however, regret having made my earlier decision of carrying only one rotten tomato and one rotten egg.
