BJP’s “Ghar Wapasi” and Godse the Martyr!

You will ask why I’m associating BJP with the “Ghar Wapasi” effort of Saffron organisations such as VHP or RSS. Simply because, it’s the BJP leaders who are patronising these religious conversion events (Conversion from other Religions to Hinduism), by participating in them in person. The BJP Spokespersons are also seen defending such Religious Conversions on News Channel debates.

I’ve no problems with organisations such as VHP or RSS or Christian Missionaries  converting people to their respective regions. Why? As they are non-political in book. And unless they convert people by coercion, their conversion effort can’t be criticised. My uneasiness is with the BJP, which is a political organisation; and hence it must have some respect for the Constitution of India. Right now BJP is in power in the Centre. Before that, it is in power in many States. This means that it must respect what Constitution of India says with respect to Religion. Indian Constitution says that the state has no official Religion. This means that India purports to be officially neutral in matters of religion, supporting neither religion nor irreligion. Under this light, any constituent of the Government supporting any particular religion is wrong. In some debates, we often mistake a blind eye to religion conversions in the country, as equivalent to the state (Country/Government)patronising or supporting it. They are not the same. As already said above, religious organisations will always try to expand their membership; and unless the act of conversion is forceful, the state can’t stop such organisations from increasing their membership.

I’ve always considered BJP as a child who can dance for the lure of a toffee. BJP’s support for Ghar Wapasi is nothing but a greed for votes. A greed so great that it’s not even asking itself, how born Hindus will react to such new inductions. BJP is assuming that every Hindu will approve such conversions. A confidence, which made BJP to set aside its previous slogan : One can only be a Hindu by Birth. Another complementary question is: How will the converted be treated in their new Religion. 

Coming on to the Godse comment of another BJP MP, Sakshi Maharaj. He called him a martyr. Later he apologised. Don’t know how to comment on the statement. To sum up, firstly, since Sakshi Maharaj belongs to BJP, BJP can’t dissociate itself from the statement. That’s why it’s obvious to see the statement as BJP’s official line. Secondly, MK Gandhi may not be that great, as many of us want the World to think him to be. To pacify his critics, let’s assume that he made gross mistakes during his lifetime. Still , the fact remains the same. Godse killed Gandhi. And a Killer can’t be a great man either. That too : You can’t kill a man simply because you disagree with him or his acts.

Awful Auntie Book Review : Imagination runs riot

Awful Auntie Book Review : A cute and extremely entertaining Read.

David Walliams is a writer who writes very child-like books for children, mostly with illustrations. He made Raj familiar with his readers through The Boy in the Dress“, “Mr. Stink Awful Auntie Book Review : Imagination runs riot“, “Billionaire Boy”, “Gangsta Granny”, “Ratburger”and “Demon Dentist”. He also has published Picture Books, “The Slightly Annoying Elephant” and “The First Hippo on the Moon”.

He comes out with “Awful Auntie” with illustrations by Tony Ross. Right from the “Thankses” David Walliams doesn’t spare anyone including his protagonist Stella to himself with his wicked humor. As wicked as his antagonist Aunt Alberta. Starting with illustrations of the location of the story, the Saxby Hall and descriptions of each and every character through illustrations, the book gets wilder, whackier and often immensely rib-tickling.

 Awful Auntie Book Review : Imagination runs riotThe story in a nutshell is about a pre-teen inheritor of a large Mansion, the Saxby Hall. Lady Stella Saxby is being held captive by her Awful Aunt Alberta. Why is she held captive ? How does the girl save herself and the deliciously imaginative ‘help’ she gets in her escape is what forms a un-put-downable story. Illustrations by Tony Ross are as humorous as the narration and make it a smooth flowing experience.

Mr. Walliams allows his imagination to run riot in a story happening in England in early 1930s. To be precise, during the Christmas week of 1933. It is kind of Huckleberry Finn meets Caspar meets old Witch stories. Walliams lets his imagination run riot through this 407 pages light read. There is a Prologue and then 43 short, precise and illustrated chapters and an Epilogue accompanied by a “Letter of Complaint”.

In spite of the whole story happening in an almost haunted mansion, Awful Auntie has a bunch of insanely funny characters. Aunt Alberta is all wicked, black and greedy lady with horrible spelling and an obsession for owls. Her Great Bavarian Mountain Owl Wagner plays an extremely important role in the story. The old butler Gibbon is perhaps the most outrageous man living in his own world. Then we have the Chimney Sweeper boy Soot, who helps Stella in her escape plans. And of course our Lady Stella Saxby is that kid with the never-say-die ‘Spirit’ who manages to conquer all the odds against her.

A cute and extremely entertaining read, “Awful Auntie” is recommended for kids and grown ups alike. Well, Soot does tell us that the grown ups don’t see the magic in life because they don’t believe in magic. I am happy, the book took me to childhood for that period and made me believe in magic and the final triumph of the good over the evil.

We do get a kind of deja vu feeling many a times but that can be attributed to having read a lot of books for children. May be 10 to 20 years later, “Awful Auntie” might well be known as one of the classics among kid’s books. The book ends with a petition by Raj, the hero of most of Walliams’ works to bring him back in the next book. This I believe is for the Indian readers. Mr. Walliams calls himself Willybums and Winklebottoms in the “Letter of Complaint” that winds the story up.
