 Pritish Nandy

Roti, kapda, makan are the real issues. Not fellatio and cunnilingus What is the most dangerous job in the White House today?
Giving the president an oral briefing.
Foxhunting is out. So is trainspotting. The in thing, this season, is crotchwatching in the White House.

The most powerful man in the world -- or so we are told -- Bill Clinton, six years into his Presidency and still retaining his otherwise remarkably high ratings as a smart, clever, politically savvy leader of the great American nation, suddenly finds his teflon peeling off. Simply because his constituency celebrates hypocrisy as its prime political virtue.

As great, unwashed, middle America -- the silent majority, in Nixon's memorable description -- spends its prime time debating on television whether fellatio is actually adultery or just another quirky massaging technique that does not compromise the marital integrity of the president of the United States, the real issue remains: Why are Americans so obsessed with sex that they will not allow their presidents to retain their shine the moment it is discovered (albeit happenstance) that they have dropped their pants before women they are not exactly married to?

They almost drove poor Jimmy Carter into dark oblivion simply because he confessed to lusting with his eyes at times -- in Playboy magazine, horror of horrors! Then, for almost a decade, they pilloried the Kennedys and took the lustre off the Camelot years, when the presidential residence rivalled the best little whorehouse in Texas. They rewrote their contemporary history to downsize the Great American Dream and make John F and his brother Robert F look like randy little pirates running around the corridors of power with their zippers down.

Americans actually believe, less than two years away from the millennium, that men who occupy the Oval Office (now, of course, more delightfully described as the Oral Office) must keep their flies buttoned down or their zippers firmly up -- depending on the styling in fashion -- whatever the provocation may be. They are not (repeat nor) allowed to have (and certainly, heavens forbid, enjoy) any sex with anyone except the person they entered the White House with, as their legally married housekeeper. Certainly not with actresses and 24-year-old interns yearning for the marquee.

That is why they are so busy arguing over whether President Clinton asked Monica Lewinsky to lie or simply lie down. It is no longer a sexist debate. It is a semantic one.

The American people, it appears, are ready to forgive their president if he asked the pretty intern to lie down and give him what is seen as morally non-compromising sex. Alias a blow job. But they are not ready to forgive him if he had actually asked her to lie about it later. On oath.

Luckily for us in India, we have no such qualms, no such moral dilemmas. The reason may be simply. Few of our politicians wear trousers in the first place. So there are no zippers, no flies, no arguments over who dropped what. The rest are rumours that they can be easily ignored. Till they conveniently die out.

The few who do wear pants in Indian politics -- like Sonia Gandhi, Jayalalitha, Mayawati, Mamata Banerjee, Phoolan Devi -- are for obvious reasons not vulnerable to such fears because they are surrounded by their hugely effected harem guards and sycophants on all fours, begging to be kicked around.

In any case, women in Indian politics are remarkably resilient. Nothing compromises them. Whether it is a much publicised career in crime and dacoity or a million corruption cases pending against them. Whether it is Bofors or Quattrocchi, they are safe as long as they have their grovelling sidekicks raising slogans, fixing elections, capturing booths and misusing they state machinery in the name of democracy, secularism and social justice. They can always redesign, restyle, rediscover their past in the light of what is currently most fashionable, most acceptable in politics.

That is why, despite the entreaties of the Election Commission, we see their remarkable array of rogues, thieves, cheats and plug-uglies queuing up to beseech us for our votes. If they win, this is, of course, the last time they will beseech us for anything. They will then move on to their areas of core competence.

Robbery, thieving, murder, looting, cheating the nation. Switching parties. All those wonderful things that our leaders are today famous for. Irrespective of the party they stand for. Irrespective of the values they claim to represent. For beliefs, ideology, election manifestoes are all passing phases. What endures is corruption, crime, violence. Once our leaders are voted to power, they all become the same. Crocks and criminals. Cheats and scoundrels.

This is the problem with democracy. Flotsam rises to the top. And it happens in both the world's largest democracies. It is only the public reaction that differs. In poor India, we forget easily. We forgive easily. We do not like lynching our leaders even if they commit the most shameless crimes. We make fun of them and then move on to other issues. Issues like roti, kapda, makaan. We have no choice because these are the real issues before the nation. Not fellatio and cunnilingus.

But in flashy America, it is different. The world's largest democracy likes to exorcise its ghosts by taking sinning seriously. So you can do anything you want in the name of lobbying, as indeed Vernon Jordan did as Clinton's best friend -- exactly what Ottavio Quattrocchi did for Rajiv Gandhi -- but the moment he tried to defend Clinton against the Lewinsky charges, he is trapped in the crosshairs of political marksmen. Dead, you could say, for the crime of defending a sinner. Not for being the smartest, canniest deal-maker in the United States who lobbied for every cause that was not exactly defensible and almost invariably won.

Gennifer Flowers must be amused. Paula Jones too. If his biographer David Maraniss is to be believed, Clinton cheated on Hillary even before they were married. But that does not worry anyone. That never shook the nation. It is only when he hit at pretty interns in the Oval Office that regicidal rage took over. How could the president of the United States unzip his trousers for a callow 24 year old who could not make out the difference between one orifice and the other? And then, what is worse, lie about it.

Luckily for our leaders, we are not so hypocritical. We actually laugh when Narain Dutt Tewari goes missing overnight. When Sanjay Singh is accused of killing his girlfriend's husband, Syed Modi. When Narasimha Rao leaks steamy chapters from his political novel When Laloo Prasad forces Deve Gowda to make Kanti Singh into an Union minister. Or Chandrababu Naidu nominates Jayaprada to the Rajya Sabha. When Gopinath Munde is accused of roaming around with Barkha, the tamasha girl. In fact, sometimes we even go a step further and elect Jayalalitha, MGR's secret girlfriend, as his political heir. It shows wisdom, political maturity, an electorate that concerns itself with real issues. Not stuntbaazi. Not witch hunting. Nor crotchwatching either.

Not bad for a democracy only fifty years old.

Tracking India's Bandit Queen  Phoolan Devi's
Phoolan Devi, Bandit Queen and Penny Arcade In India
Phoolan Devi Murdered July 25, 2001
NEW DELHI, India (AP) - India's ``Bandit Queen,'' Phoolan Devi, who fled a brutal marriage to become an outlaw idolized by the poor and who later was elected to Parliament, was shot to death Wednesday outside her home, a government minister said.
Three masked men shot Devi as she returned home from a morning session of the lower house of Parliament, and they then sped away in a motorized rickshaw, Home Minister L. K. Advani told Parliament.

Excerpted from

Legally, as things stand, in UP the charges against her haven't been dropped. (Mulayam Singh has tried, but an appeal against this is pending in the High Court).
     There are several versions of what happened at Behmai. Phoolan denies that she was there. More importantly, two of  the men who were shot at but didn't die say she wasn't there. Other eye- witnesses say she was. Nothing has been
 proved. Everything is conjecture.

     By not showing her the film, but keeping her quiet until it's too late to protest
(until it has been passed by the Censors and the show hits the road), what are
they doing to Phoolan? By appearing to remain silent, is she concurring with the
 film version of the massacre at Behmai? Which states, unequivocally, that Phoolan was there. Will it appear as though she is admitting evidence against herself? Does she know that whether or not the film tells the Truth it is only a matter of  time before it becomes the Truth.

And that public sympathy for being shown as a rape-victim doesn't get you off the hook for murder?
     Are they helping her to put her head in a noose?  On the one hand the concerned cowboys Messrs Bedi & Kapur are so eager to share with us the abject humiliation and the domination of Phoolan Devi's "soul", and o n the other they seem to be so totally uninterested in her.
 In what she thinks of the film, or what their film will do to her life and future.

     What is she to them? A concept? Or just a cunt?

     One last terrifying thing. While she was still in jail, Phoolan was rushed to hospital bleeding heavily because of an ovarian cyst. Her womb was removed. When Mala Sen asked why this had been necessary, the prison doctor laughed and said
     " We don't want her breeding any more Phoolan Devi's."
     The State removed a woman's uterus! Without asking her .Without her knowing.
     It just reached into her and plucked out a part of her!
     It decided to control who was allowed to breed and who wasn't.
     Was this even mentioned in the film?
     No. Not even in the rolling titles at the end
 When it comes to getting bums on seats, hysterectomy just doesn't measure up to rape.

 Boris Yeltsin
" Just heard about a by now really old book chapter in Boris Yeltsin's Autobiography.   In which he discusses President Clinton's falling for the "B job" the oldest political dirty trick in the book " We were laughing at that, not his misfortune but his stupidity when we saw the story". " What book reviewer would ever say that except that courageous R@wman...

The Fact is taking a look at that web page on  Mr. Yeltsin one would think it was very difficult to laugh off several heart attacks and a rapidly plummeting economy... Laughing in any case can even cure Cancer...
This guy has big potatoes!!
No Small Potatoes!!
If you think Your political reality is dismal, take heart at the miserable state of our former allies and sworn enemy now Allies?

If not self subverting anti Nazis at best a sleazier slave state than the USA.
Economic reforms conducted by the government of President Boris Yeltsin and Prime Minister Chernomyrdin had  serious negative consequences. Crime increased beyond all expectations,organized crime became a serious obstacle on the way of economic recovery. GDP fell rapidly, unemployment has risen several times. Living standards of most Russians plummeted, and one third of the population now lives below the poverty line set at about $60 per month. The budget-dependent sectors (education, health care, science, police, military industry) got hit the hardest by the crisis. In the meanwhile, in a sign of disparity unknown under communists, 10% of  the adult population earn 28% of the money.  In 1995, President Yeltsin suffered two heart attacks. Pro-government Our Home is Russia won 10.13% of the party list vote in the December elections and formed the second largest Duma faction, behind Gennady Zyuganov's Communist Party of the Russian Federation. In the government reshuffle after the elections, the last members of the reformist Gaidar team were forced to resign.
