There is no dearth of of those deracinated Indians whose understanding of Indian history and culture seemingly derives from colonial, Eurocentric and Marxist constructs. They and their and his fellow travelers take pride in knowing more about Shakespeare than kAlidAsa. It is the nature of their cabal to blame natives for all ills without taking into account the utter destruction and mayhem over centuries brought upon by totalitarian marauders and colonizers, the former particularly being driven by supremacist religiosity. They won’t lose any opportunity to throw dung on natives and native denominations, but will conveniently bury their heads in the sand when the destruction of native societal ethos and infrastructure by the very medieval marauders and colonial prophets they worship is pointed out. Such is the staple offering from these Veer Bhadra Tiwari incarnates.
