Indian Activism

“USINPAC”:http://www.usinpac.com/250503_nr.asp is an Indian Political Action Commitee representing India in Capitol Hill and the White House. Recently they met with the Democratic candidates for the 2004 Presidential elections and here are is what happened.

Senator Lieberman (D-CT) said that he is committed to having Indian Americans in his Administration.

Governor Dean stated that although General Musharraf’s regime was not democratically elected, the alternative of a fundamentalist regime was much worse, which may be true. But praising Musharraf in an Indian crowd does not really go well among Indians.

bq. The USINPAC also met Senator Orin Hatch and Senator Chuck Grassley and Senator Hatch said that he would like to charter a plane and take a group of Senators to India to get a better understanding of the country and how US and India can work better together.

Recalling the Governor

California, the world’s fifth largest economy is having a $38 billion deficit and the blame is on Governor Gray Davis. He was re-elected to office only last year, but there is a serious campaign to recall him. But finally it is all about money.

bq. “California voters back governor recall:”:http://cbs.marketwatch.com/news/story.asp?guid=%7B9E96FFBC-A917-46CC-9FE6-509EFF50FF63%7D&siteid=google&dist=google Still, being presented with considerations related to a recall effort appears to give voters pause. For instance, when informed that a recall effort could cost $25 million, the pro-recall majority evaporated.

Democracy — Whore, Judiciary — Meaningless

I have always wondered why Arundhati Roy is against democracy and prefers dictators like Musharraf, Saddam Hussein etc. I got my answer in her speech at Centre for Economic and Social Rights in New York on May 13th

“Democracy is the Free World’s whore, says Arundhati Roy”:http://www.sulekha.com/redirectnh.asp?cid=309501

bq. “Democracy, the modern world’s holy cow, is in crisis … every kind of outrage is being committed in the name of democracy. It has become little more than a hollow word, a pretty shell, emptied of all content or meaning,” she said. “Democracy is the Free World’s whore, willing to dress up, dress down, willing to satisfy a whole range of tastes, available to be used and abused at will.”

See that is the problem with democracy. Sometimes you have to accept the fact that there are people who do not agree with your point of view. In Saddam’s land, you never had that problem. You could have a different point of view, so long as you were willing to spent rest of your life as “a dead body”:http://www.azcentral.com/arizonarepublic/news/articles/0515graves15.html.

She did not spare the judicary as well.

bq. Free elections, a free press and an independent judiciary mean little when the free market means they are on sale to the highest bidder, she said.

Call the Judiciary stupid if you want, but they do not “like it a bit”:http://www.ashoo.org/blog/archives/cat_moron_watch.html#000114 when you violate the rules of the land and “build houses in protected land”:http://varnam.nationalinterest.in/archives/000084.html.

Again, don’t you see the irony here. You are able to come to United States and criticize it in public. Now go to Cuba, China, Iran or North Korea and say the same thing about their administration.

Foreign Policy Developments

Few days back “we said that”:http://varnam.nationalinterest.in/archives/000083.html it is not in India’s interest to accept Pakistan’s offer to denuclearize. The Indian Prime Minister made that more clear.

Indian Political Activism

“US Congress probes Pakistan’s role in aiding terrorism”:http://www.usinpac.com/70503_nr.asp

bq. After the vote, Rep. Faleomavaega stated that he harbored no ill-will against the people of Pakistan. ‘It would be hypocritical for the United States to support a dictatorship despite a firm, long-standing policy against coup instigators. Today, Pakistan remains a dictatorship, while only a few years ago it was a democracy. By contrast, India has demonstrated that democracy can take root and prosper in non-Western cultures as well, even under the most difficult circumstances.’
