So, it would be the 11th largest nation on Earth, went inside the orchard looking for her. spoofs, An eminent barometer of this fact comes straight from the horse’s mouth,so to say One of the biggest beneficiaries of Dynasty largesse — and therefore its die hard votary — William Dalrymple who Hartosh Singh Bal once characterised as the "pompous arbiter of literary merit in India” describes how Rahul Gandhi razed the Congress party to the ground in 2014: Rahul came across as conceited and dim if not borderline messianic-delusional as he talked about himself in the third person…When not praising his own profundity he parroted the same pre-prepared answers irrespective of the question he was asked What did he think about the Gujarat riots "The real issue at hand here is empowering the women of this country" Why did his party protect corrupt MPs "The issue at hand is bringing youngsters into the political system" […] In all he mentioned empowerment 22 times and finding a way to mend the broken political system no fewer than 70 times in 45 minutes […] Rahul would appear to be the very bottom of the Nehru-Gandhi barrel tongue-tied and uncharismatic on campaign conceited and slow-witted in private: in short the complete electoral prophylactic as Congress must sadly now realise to its despair Aldous Huxley’s note that "a bad book is as much of a labor to write as a good one; it comes as sincerely from the author’s soul" is completely applicable to Rahul Gandhi’s "escape velocity of Jupiter" politics: it can’t be learned One has to be a natural And it’s also eminent fodder for much mirth Indeed most of his speeches on almost every campaign he’s led so far have satiated our appetite for fun and so instead of condemning his political and leadership abilities we must be grateful to him But then there’s that Dynastic trait of entitlement that he’s inherited that licenses him to talk down to a galaxy of the best minds of Indian business as his 2013 speech at the CII shows This sense of entitlement in Sonia Gandhi’s hands had manifested colourfully as "maut ka saudagar" and "zeher ki kheti" Of course nobody raises an eyebrow — forget being outraged — at such crass campaign language because even worse has now become mainstream in our electoral grammar And so it was that on the 2014 Lok Sabha campaign trail when Rahul Gandhi thundered that "RSS people killed Gandhiji and today their people (BJP) talk of him.They opposed Sardar Patel and Gandhiji"little did he anticipate that this had the makings of a mini-bomb that would explode two years later in the form of this Supreme Court reprimand: “You can’t make wholesale denunciation of an organisation…If you won’t apologise you will have to face trial” File image of Rahul Gandhi PTI The Pavlovian secular-liberal response to this rebuke is to brand the SC bench as communal and fascist and anti-poor but we’ll let that pass and focus on the content of Rahul Gandhi’s casual slur against the RSS False History as Electoral Weapons First the wording of the Supreme Court’s admonition needs to be examined briefly: "You can’t make wholesale denunciation of an organisation" In other words a responsible political party doesn’t casually label an entire organisation as murderers: it must establish proof that will stand up in court It’s well-known that the false charge that the "RSS people killed Gandhiji" is as old as 1948-49 Equally well-known is the fact this canard has handsomely benefitted the Congress-Communist combine Here’s how the Belgian scholar Dr Koenraad Elst puts it in his meticulously researched Mahatma Gandhi and his Assassin: Invariably the so-called secularists call the RSS…the “murderers of the Mahatma” As a Western researcher has remarked this allegation is in defiance of the judicial verdict in the Mahatma murder trial…These [allegations] … come from the Congress…or the Communists are used as political slogans and…show a disregard for the legal decision of the case (Page 17-18) This observation is in keeping with the Congress tradition of disrespecting and overturning court verdicts Equally the Kapur Commission formed on 21 November 1966 to “conduct an inquiry into the conspiracy to murder Mahatma Gandhi” noted thus (full report available here) after completing its work on 30 September 1969: "RSS as such were not responsible for the murder of Mahatma Gandhi meaning thereby that one could not name the organisation as such as being responsible for that most diabolical crime the murder of the apostle of peace It has not been proved that they (the accused) were members of the RSS" But then the mainstream Leftist discourse has ensured that the canard of blaming the murder of Gandhi continues to haunt the RSS On its part the RSS has continued to be defensive issuing an unending stream of rebuttals and refutations To put things in perspective by the mid-1940s Gandhi had all but become inconsequential within the core Congress leadership who correctly sensed the winds of change and the chance to grab political power?
