What a total ass, this Alphons – and my misjudgement of people exposed once again
A few years ago I studied the writings of Alphons (publicly on this blog) and came to the view that he might be suitable for joining SBP.
I had once before met him in 1999 or so while I was in the IAS, but that’s history. I wrote to him in 2014 and we met in July 2014 at the India International Centre. Of course, his joining SBP was not going to happen. He was smitten by Modi.
Now this guy has become India’s tourism minister and one of the first thing he says is: “Eat Beef In Your Country Before Coming to India“.
What a total ass, this Alphons. (Sorry, but there’s no word more suitable and descriptive.)
I’m GROSSLY ASHAMED THAT SUCH LUNATICS ARE ABLE TO JOIN THE IAS AND EVEN EARN A BIG NAME FOR THEMSELVES.
And he is now India’s Tourism Minister. Surely no one in his right senses will travel to India.
Alphons is one of a long string of people whom I’ve misjudged over the past 20 years. I get misguided by reading someone’s writings and assume he/she is liberal but they are NOT!
The list is huge but prominent ENEMIES OF LIBERTY disguised as promoters of liberty include (apart from Alphons):
- Madhu Kishwar
- Atanu Dey
- Deepak Lal
- Jadgish Bhagwati
- Surjit Bhalla
- Bibek Debroy
- Narayana Murthy
- JP of Loksatta
- Nandan Nilekani (I still have some hopes from him – but I know I’m being a fool when I still think he could help India)
Plus hundreds of minor ones – Somnath Bharti, LK Kandpal, Shantanu Bhagwat.
Plus full-fledged crooks like Ramdev.
The sad thing is that I’ve personally met and engaged with all of these people – sometimes at great personal cost (e.g. thousands of dollars, and hundreds of hours of my time) – and have had great hopes from them.
Plus I’ve engaged with hundreds of others like Rajesh Jain whom I’ve not met. But …
THEY HAVE ALL BETRAYED LIBERTY AND INDIA.
As Trump would say, “Sad”.
India has been betrayed repeatedly by its own people.
