Gandhi and his "Ji" : Grooming Up of a Fake

By Ved from Victoria Institutions


Description
The Multitudes Personally I had nothing against him; only thing was that I couldn’t find anything great about him, other than the rhetoric. As I grew up and started having independent understandings on the realities of history, I increasingly found it difficult to find his greatness. As I grew up, I started seeing a lot of ‘Gandhis’ all round India; in fact, in every village, every small town, in every social group, there seemed to be at least one ‘Gandhi’; a person who was the focus of respect and the symbol of simplicity; yet a man who kept everyone else in lower mental levels; by lower level feudal words. An impostor in the light Later my understandings on language links, and of the studded auras that is generated to propel persons to leadership, both propound as well as fraudulent, was to make me see Gandhi in a most candid light, as an impostor.

Summary
The School Version Even though I was a student of physics, I was very much interested in history. Since my early days, I was inundated with themes on Gandhi, in the form of ‘Gandhiji’ in themes on Indian history. The school version of history was that of a man, a saint, a thinker, a divine personality, a super human who stood out against the might of an evil empire, and came out glorious, defeating them, and reclaiming the lost freedom of the Indians, from their shackles. It may have looked fine in the history texts, and many persons were deeply impressed. Even though at the student level no one cared much; it was just textbook subject, to be parroted for marks.

Excerpt
Inaptness of Gandhian training As a very introduction to the topic, I would ask myself: Would I allow my children (who have been trained to imbibe the best of English (England) systems, despite my being non-White, and totally alien to English [England] antiquity) and other children who I have trained, to follow Gandhi himself as a follower or allow them to be trained by him or his followers? No, I will not if I can help it. For, it is sure to erase any level of personal brilliance that has perched on them by the simple imbibing of English (England) systems, and pull them to the creepy levels of some feudal hierarchy, on the top of which Gandhi exists in a most heinous manner.
