BG 2.33 — अथ चैत्त्वमिमं धर्म्यं संग्रामं न करिष्यसि। ततः स्वधर्मं कीर्तिं च हित्वा पापमवाप्स्यसि।
On the other hand, if you will not fight this righteous battle, then forsaking your own duty and fame, you will incur sin. (Bhagavad Gita – 2.33)
The post-1947 Indian governments have continuously betrayed well-being of the ordinary Indian people – the huddled, illiterate and starving masses that inhabit its hinterlands! In many ways modern Indian is a failed capitalist State which sees its minority Bourgeoisie hiding in the opulent gated communities they have built for themselves! These types of Indians associate themselves with the ‘Whiteness’ of the 19th century European invaders of their country – and the technological innovations they brought via the Industrial Revolution! This technical superiority (which extended to the weaponry used by their armies) was falsely assumed to have been a ‘boon’ from God!
Of course, the post-1947 Indian Army has lost every battle it has engaged in – including the 1962 clashes it had with China’s ‘People’s Liberation Army’ (PLA)! Obviously, the Indian people have had their minds and bodies badly damaged by the presence of European colonialists and this hideous distortion can be seen in these examples of the utter ‘stupid’ and ‘inept’ bayonet drills practiced by the contemporary Indian Army! These military drills are as much theatrical as they are combative – and seem to be the product of a superficial overlay of pointless (and ‘enforced’) Westernisation that has no historical relevance to the Indian mind and body – and certainly NOTHING to do with the Indian way of making war!
India’s Brahmanical Caste has a noble and ancient tradition of making war – and this imported madness is certainly not it! This nonsense will get these men killed – and very quickly! I suspect this imposition of an out of place ‘Whiteness’ plays very well with the BJP government – as it seeks to emulate that other Western imposition known as ‘fascism’ – the inherent racism of which fits very well with the ‘racist’ attitudes that justify and sustain the Hindu Caste System – premised as it is upon the false idea that those with lighter skin-complexions are ‘closer to God’ – than those with complexions of a darker hue! Indian Comrades – Join us and overthrow your fascist (and capitalist) leaders! We are ‘Internationalist’ brothers and sisters and must unite against the Bourgeoisie!
