International Affairs

The current administration under President Donald J Trump policies and strategies are the highlights in this discussion.

Snapshot of core issues are as follows.

United States Migrants Children Plight – Delays and debacles in reuniting children with migrant parents subsequent to inhumane and unethical separation is a tragedy.

Furthermore, the migrants detained prior to verification and confirmation of background – criminal profile in particular is a major setback for democracy not to mention human rights violation apparently relevant to United States with respect to other countries track record cited in imposing economic sanctions. One has to be the example in anything expected from others and more so in important issue like family matter with children born in the United States sharing the constitutional rights as any other citizen in the country.

North Korea – Following the gala summit in Singapore on June 12 between the leaderships
in the United States and North Korea, the former imposing sanctions against DPRK for another year rather than lifting them to build trust- quintessential in any agreement creates credibility problem while accusing DPRK of not submitting to US and allies demands explains US foreign policy vulnerability subject to vested interests over trustworthiness in honoring mutual commitment.

North Korea is a serious player along with neighbor and family South Korea to forge peace and security in Korean Peninsula. However, United States expectations from DPRK for unilateral denuclearization in
the face of prominent nuclear powers viz. Russia and United States declining such necessity on them i.e. global nuclear disarmament given the stockpiles and legacy concerning them is an irony. United States moving forward in improving relations with DPRK would demonstrate US independence from fringe elements influence hindering success in Korean Peace Treaty. Peace requires solidarity and reliability from all sides without subjugation of any one party involved in the agreement. There is potential for permanent resolution upon United States willingness and courage to engage amicably that would guarantee stability and economic prospects for all.

NATO Summit – President Donald Trump stance in urging NATO allies to contribute to self-defense is valid and reasonable. When small developing nations in other parts of the world are providing for their security by any means, the industrialized European NATO partners modifying priorities is long overdue.
United States tax dollars expended in safeguarding foreign nations borders essentially addressing their security concerns meanwhile neglecting US taxpayers requirements is unsustainable. Since the
introduction of euro valued at present US $1.17 arguably proved expensive for US taxpayers in maintaining  NATO predominantly serving hegemonic goals like in Afghanistan and earlier in Iraq and Libya and using Turkey against Syria had nothing to do with NATO allies security. Instead the operation were aimed at gaining economic interests and strategic dominance in the respective regions.

Similarly, further back NATO decimation and Balkanization of Yugoslavia had grave consequences with massive casualties and political upheavals paving way for extended intervention in the Balkan states that were all paid for by United States in blood and treasure. European NATO coalition formalizing economic ties with Russia on gas pipeline suggesting the deal favorable and affordable to them viz. Germany, Belgium and others might be acceptable on financial feasibility compared to importing same energy product from United States or elsewhere based on Europe’s proximity to Russia besides the price factor.

European NATO allies dependence on United States for security at US taxpayers expense and economic benefits in utilizing Russian energy exemplify them taking advantage of the best of both worlds. Nonetheless, the situation merits proportionate defense spending easing the burden on United States taxpayers footing the bill thus far for the reverse would not be entertained let alone bearing the extraordinary financial responsibility. Hence, United States is justified in seeking NATO countries to allocate appropriately towards own defense.

Haiti – The Caribbean nation in the Western Hemisphere going through political unrest is the result of US foreign policy and previous administrations direct involvement in destabilizing the democratically elected governments in that country. The topic was discussed on this site extensively during the turmoil when Haitians sought the return of the first democratically elected President Jean- Bertrand Aristide.

The people choice leader and former President Jean- Bertrand Aristide was deposed by earlier US administration under ex- President George W.Bush and before that the state was forced into extreme economic struggles through US economic policy and political establishment key members such as the Clintons interference depriving the population normal existence. Haiti also had to deal with natural disasters of epic proportion in the past years exacerbating survival.

Thailand– Cheers and Kudos! To Thai Soccer Team – The Wild Boars having emerged from harrowing experience. The incredible efforts and successful rescue mission headed by Thai NAVY SEALS with international support saved lives enabling them to safely return home. I convey my best wishes to the young brave boys and their coach for speedy recovery.

Thank you.

The Controversial Indian Film Industry

November 21, 2017

The Controversial Indian Film Industry

Padmini Arhant

Indian Cinema on the brink of collapse never spare any opportunity in profiteering on ventures jointly funded by local and foreign investments in film making deploying tactics that are far from genuine representation in creativity and originality expected in the arts and entertainment field.

The film makers beginning with production house financing the project to director and actors are geared towards profitability, fame and fortune besides complicity in distortion of history and events inducing controversy in the name of free speech.

The series of films that have been released recently in the past decade by Indian film industry is targeted and isolated subjecting the lead characters in the theme to mockery and ridicule. The trend is unprecedented for there has not been such attempts against high profile personalities in Indian domain.

The sudden urge and frenzy to exercise free speech by movie makers and the so-called artistes who are evidently the narcissists usually at loss of words against corrupt regimes in power continually bankrupting economy and depriving the poor, the weak, vulnerable and the voiceless in society is collusion undermining others individual rights and historic facts.

The other factor being the financial prospects and wanton publicity for the actor serving as incentives interpreted otherwise to maintain status quo.

Interestingly, the perception that actors are performers expected to fit into a role in a story line regardless of the content aimed at vilification of specific person and oblige director’s instructions, the same is not applied to the present event in the pre-ordained cosmic activity and commandment from no ordinary film director but the Supreme entity that cannot be retracted simply to satisfy the whims and fancies of those bent on wreaking havoc world over at will.

Unlike the actors having choices to distance themselves from contemporary practice i.e. provocative and confrontational projections using cinema as the medium to incite emotions and violence,

The prevalent challenges to contain forces responsible for humanity suffering and existential danger to planet survival with nuclear threats are not some fantasy or concocted cinematic formula that could be retreated at film industry’s harassment.

Arguably, Indian cinema and crew behind the spin arousing feelings and diverse attacks from all directions care less about humanitarian woes and more drawn towards personal gains and benefits. There are no inhibitions in the film industry used as arsenal for propaganda and incendiary characterization of legends or anyone considered a fair game depicting them with unjustified contempt and prejudice.

The political alliance on these occasions clarify opportunism and expediency.

The West Bengal government headed by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is yet to accept responsibility for gross negligence and dereliction of duty in the series of disasters related to numerous incidents whether that be high infant mortality in government hospital failing to prevent 35 children deaths in one sweep or the consecutive Kolkata fire accidents in a hospital consuming 90 people at a time due to lack of government preparedness and emergency rescue operation are merely the tip of the iceberg.

Furthermore, Kolkata is stigmatized for having become the terror haven providing refuge to terror enabling Indian Mujahideen (IM) operatives and cross border activity from Bangladesh. These issues related to West Bengal and national security together with alleviating poverty, disease and deepening social inequality having been the signature feature of West Bengal and India’s coveted film director Satyajit Ray earning glory and acknowledgment in the western entertainment industry especially among the colonial remnants reminiscing the imperial era could be the incumbent Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s priority.

Instead, the Bengal Chief Minister advocacy on free speech to impress upon foreign sources fueling misrepresentation and subversion of Indian history through Indian cinema under the guise of freedom of expression unnecessarily provoke reaction. Notwithstanding the overture from those in Indian film industry and politics slighting sentiments and ignoring constitutional rights of community voicing concerns over the deliberate and intentional false portrayal of the main character claimed as adaptation of legendary figures from Indian history is inflammatory.

The current political stance on these issues contrast opinions and approach by those involved in India’s freedom struggles who exemplified patriotism and intellect in defiance to assault on Indian ethos and legacy.

Again, certain Indian film makers seem to be oriented in appeasing elements both domestic and offshore stirring communal divide rather than expending resources and talent in exhibiting India’s rich cultural heritage that was safeguarded with sacrifice and valor by women defending their honor and pride unlike the tradition witnessed in the present time.

Finally, in order to resolve any conflict or dispute, understanding the basics and origin of the problem is important. The production company Viacom 18 behind the contentious movie attracting fury and favor is a 50/50 joint venture operation between privately owned company India’s Network 18 based in Mumbai and American media company Viacom experiencing decline with imminent demise of Viacom Chairman, the ailing 93 years old Sumner Murray Redstone, the multi-billionaire who is the controlling shareholder of media conglomerate Viacom and of CBS Corp., perhaps choose to remain oblivious to consequences of profit driven strategy exploiting culture and cultural integrity.

Thank you.

Elitism

July 24, 2017

By Padmini Arhant

What is elitism?

Status specializing in hubris, ignorance, xenophobia, megalomania, sneering, jeering, condescendence, contemptuousness, envy, prejudice, polarization, deception, subversion, treason, deceit, duplicity, demagoguery, debauchery, perversion, promiscuity, plagiarism, grand larceny, misogyny, gluttonous, cronyism, servility and last but not the least parasitic existence conveniently asserted as elitism amongst contemporary feudalists and fiduciaries frozen in the medieval era.

Perhaps the dog’s tail could be straightened but not the twisted twits set in one direction with a dead end.

United States – July 4th Celebration

July 3, 2017

By Padmini Arhant

United States celebrating independence anniversary on July 4th would be meaningful upon liberty and justice experienced by all transcending race, religion, economic and ethnic background.

Unfortunately, the social racial divide and economic disparity deprives many citizens from claiming equal rights witnessed in judicial outcome and deteriorating living standards among Native Americans, African Americans, Latinos, and immigrant population.

The increasing wealth and monopoly on fame, fortune and power characterized as elitism subjugate the rest with little or no concern for actions and decisions affecting majority. The apathy qualifying as narcissism is not a healthy trend given reliability on the less fortunate to work in harsh conditions making survival a challenge.

A free nation would not impose existing mandatory laws such as health insurance subscription with penalty upon failure to do so favoring profit centric health insurance industry without similar provisions tied to penalty on insurance industry regularly not meeting their end of the bargain.

In a real democracy, there would be no tolerance to private entities and foreign members like European Royals secret meeting behind closed doors barring public and citizens represented press from gaining information on policies regarding global matter and more than seven billion inhabitants fate.  The reference is to Bilderberg conclave held annually with attendees sworn to secrecy in heavily guarded location.

The free country would not selectively profile law abiding citizens under the guise of national security while granting immunity to members in the position of authority on treason, corruption and criminal dealings based on fraternity and mutual advantage.  

Then there is misrepresentation and false propaganda misusing communication resources to mislead the nation and world at large to maintain status quo.

United States could lead in many frontiers provided the nation is liberated from illegitimate incognito forces functioning by proxy to promote self and vested interests exerting supremacy and dominance proved counterproductive thus far.

United States efficiency and energy is a consolidation of efforts and contributions from people of diverse orientation working towards common goal to improve lives for self and others in different domains.

Accordingly, collective rather than exclusive progress in society would define fair income distribution alleviating burden on lower and middle- income class and socially disadvantaged segments bearing imbalance in the economy.

United States strategies in domestic and foreign affairs are premised on benefits to political class their campaign financiers, special interests and influential entities ignoring ramifications at national and international level.

The private ownership of federal reserve in control of monetary policy and money circulation further undermines United States independent status. With legislations directed to profit campaign donors from economic sector and those near and far, the electorate expectations are barely met disappointing voters in the otherwise opaque unaccountable and devious system.

National and state operation is outsourced to private management like the credit bureaus run by three specific private companies with no oversight apply arbitrary rules leaving the victims of home mortgage fraud and credit card exorbitant interest hikes by banks at their mercy.

As long as government remains a mechanism for private organizations, political factions and those forging close relations with insiders to promote agenda threatening unity, peace and economic development,

Freedom for all is a mere dream and available at a dear price.

July 4th arrives and remembered with joy every year. The day equal opportunity and greater accessibility for optimistic future to citizens across the spectrum is no longer a struggle, the celebration would be worthwhile.

Hope for a better tomorrow beginning at present sets the path to reach milestone.

Happy July 4th !

Peace to all!

Thank you.

Misrepresentation

Duplicity feigning Authenticity

By Padmini Arhant

Could the media in the United States care to clarify on the present family in the White House?

Is President Donald J. Trump an orthodox Jew?

If the answer is no, then the President’s eldest daughter Ivanka could not be an orthodox Jew since she is referred to as Ivanka Trump.

On the contrary, any claim on Ivanka’s apostasy from whatever that was previously to the current one through alleged marriage with an orthodox Jew Jared Kushner could not be true either with the last name Kushner discarded by supposedly an orthodox traditional spouse.

What is true?

Ivanka’s marriage to orthodox Jew Jared Kushner then why not Ivanka Kushner rather than Ivanka Trump given the orthodox status?

Alternatively, there could be no connection between Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner and yet she is supposedly a mother of his three kids struggling the act between an orthodox Jew and an unorthodox identity.

In keeping up with prevalent practice to dissect personal profile of anyone regarded a public figure, the clarification is necessary to end misrepresentation.

Thank you.

There are many questions arise due to duplicity feigning authenticity and violations are the norm.

 

  1.  Could any system be truly democratic when candidates are pre-selected by a special council or for that matter chosen by Super Delegates like in the United States Democratic Party exerting superiority over electorate prior to national election?

 

  1. What about a democracy that bars women hopefuls while expecting women voters to cast votes and yet described as vibrant democracy?

 

  1. How is the election free and fair with detention of political opposition and absence of other parties from mainstream denied opportunity to participate in the process?

 

  1. Is it possible that CIA and NSA are so weak and vulnerable that their secret world is infiltrated by Wikileaks and one of their employees both of whom are apparently fugitives and named in the most wanted list?

 

  1. Similarly, were CIA and counterparts in deep slumber awakened by al-Qaeda on 9/11?

 

  1. Is terrorism today the premise for warfare likened to communism in the past prompting invasion of Vietnam and other parts of South East Asia while triggering near nuclear meltdown targeting Cuba?

 

  1. Did Karl Marx benefit from communism? Or Did communism promote feudalism?

 

  1. Is corporate socialism facilitating welfare system for politics considering economic sector and political establishment interdependency?

 

  1. Are the cash flow from campaign donors to political members and vice versa via kickbacks and backend deals deemed corruption?

 

  1. Should lawmakers as lawbreakers be allowed to legislate laws they do not respect and follow while enforcing them against rest of the society?

 

  1. What about those in the position of power and authority exercising the license to kill at will whether the victim is unarmed civilian in domestic or foreign land?

 

  1. Is freedom of press a privilege or priority in a democracy?

 

  1. Should media and news outlets be pugnacious to some and unctuous to other?

 

  1. What makes the report fair and balanced – facts or fabrication?

 

  1. Should television networks be concerned about rating or rationality?

 

  1. What is the difference between State broadcasting and corporate channels fielding for the State?

 

In International Developments:

 

  1. Can a state annex territory and occupy neighboring country in defiance of international law and maintain normal relations with rest of the world?

 

  1. Should a country as major economic power claiming territorial proprietary continue to threaten region simply because the sea shares the name of the country?

 

  1. Is it appropriate to undermine sovereignty of a nation with arbitrary air strikes against the defense force?

 

  1. Does it make the wrong right with weapons supply to nation identified as terror sponsor and aggressor?

 

  1. Should innocent people in poorer nations die for the sake of job creation and profitability in industrialized country?

 

  1. What leads to self-destruction?

 

Response – The enslavement to greed and hatred.

 

  1. What distinguishes political opportunism from human compassion?

 

Response – When the government exploits options to stay execution order for one citizen while colludes with then ruling power in declining a rape victim the right to survive and mandatorily transports the patient in critical condition out of country against medical advice resulting in patient’s mortality and political killing.  Further victimizing the citizen by rejecting  the victim and parent’s plea to disclose the victim’s actual name.

 

  1. What is worst – myopia or dystopia?

 

Response – The former transforms into latter.

 

  1. What is religion to politics?

 

Response – The pawn for political advantage.

 

Something to think about in the rapacious environment.

Thank you.

World – International Criminal Syndicate (ICS)

April 20, 2017

By Padmini Arhant

International criminal syndicate is the Father of terror, prejudice and polarization. ICS is responsible for breeding terrorism and supremacy. The clique indoctrination in desperation represented in glamor, glory and goon politics.

ICS is the bedrock of divide and rule doctrine that fosters segregation, misogyny and condescendence besides cronyism and corruption. The global turmoil and security threats are caused by ICS manufactured terror and relentless violence. The world ruled by unruly triggers tumult turning the tide against the source.

With no desire for peace and pervasive progress, ICS is the classic example in existence to destroy for self-destruction. Such endeavors lead to extinction.

What you sow is what you reap in life.

Having no regrets for conduct is denial guided by delusion that ultimately bring the conclusion.

India – Idle Worship (Filmy Duniya Part II)

April 17, 2017

By Padmini Arhant

Subsequent to earlier segment Filmy Duniya (Movie World) on entertainment industry serving as  platform for propaganda and prejudice, the current topic focus on idle worship of Film stars and the cult following that exists with celebrities getting away with man slaughter, tax evasion, political scandals involving arms deal and instigating violence...exempting them from any accountability.

Indian democracy with tiered system granting immunity on crimes to members in politics, entertainment industry and economic sector is a travesty of justice and mockery of republic status not to mention the widening gap between superior and ordinary classifications despite the slogan – Sab Ka Saath, Sab Ka Vikas merely remaining a political rhetoric in the absence of rule of law across the spectrum.

The audio link above scans the profile of big screen heroes turning out to be big time zeroes due to their unlawful activities that are left unchecked exclusively on the basis of stardom and relations with politics, underworld and international syndicate besides media and press shelter.

The trend poses grave danger for society and the country at large. The mass awakening declining the cult environment is critical for real progress nationwide.

Peace to all!

Thank you.

India – Filmy Duniya (Movie World) – Hindi

April 12, 2017

By Padmini Arhant

Besides promoting ignorance and prejudice, the entertainment industry serving as propaganda medium to suppress the facts and reality on world events is the topic of discussion. Such investment in the name of entertainment  is a waste of resources and purpose in life.

Thank you.
