A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.
To those who disapprove the way the Tamil people express their emotions, know THIS first
The BJP has been doing everything to undermine the federal structure and the self governance of TN through the strings they hold of the AIADMK puppets. From the appointment of a Brahmin VC in Ambedkar University to a Kannadiga in Anna University, it reeks of this malintent.
This pushed us to the point of going to NEET in which the life of an innocent child was sacrificed at the altar by giving false hope by none other than those in power in the centre.
The Cauvery issue is another example where the SC judgement has been undermined by the Center, as it has the Karnataka elections to fend for.
Keep in mind, it is not Karnataka vs Tamil Nadu. It is the Centre that politicises this issue for electoral gains and consequently prevents the Southern states from fighting together against the Delhi hegemony.
Humans are emotional creatures, and when they are hurt, they retaliate in ways they know. If you think you can program them to retaliate in ways you want them to, it would not work. You may have argued verbally with a mute, but don’t be surprised if you find him retaliating, not verbally, but by some other means the person is capable of, but if you insist that the person fight with you by your rules
What you are attempting is Neo Brahmanism.
When a certain majority of the people are being denied their basic rights, their livelihoods are threatened, you have the so called elite class seeming to not bat an eyelid about their condition. And if that wasn’t enough, their priorities are anchored around mercenary sports and partying.
When my people are suffering without food you wanna celebrate ? That’s the question they ask .
Let me remind that’s the same question that arises before every revolution from the French revolution to the October revolution
It’s that exactly that may be taking birth now in the form of the IPL protests.
As an urban elite it may be difficult for you to understand, but at least, can you empathise ? I know it’s hard for you to do but if there is any empathy left in you I would appeal to that
Let one isolated incident not be unfairly anchored to belittle the monumental efforts being put up for a humanitarian cause.
And Yes, if you are going to brand the whole protest violent just because of one isolated incident … please feel free to judge because you’re nothing more than a selfish hypocrite.
