In 2002, Sagarika Ghosh wrote a piece titled ‘Science is Tough‘ criticising the Hindutva forces and Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam. We have broken down the piece paragraph-wise and highlighted that in italics. Each para is followed by our own inputs.
So the noble and ‘logically’ thinking Sagarika thinks Indian’s love bombs. Yes, most love patakhas (crackers, I mean), but we have seen only terrorists from Pakistan in love with a real bomb!
Okay, you may say she is being sarcastic, but you are wrong. She is as serious as Ned Stark was when he said the iconic phrase “Winter is coming”. She still believes that Hindutvas have nothing better to do than conjure up such inane plans.
An “ash-smeared” face with dreadlocks is dangerous, warns Sagarika. Someone needs to tell this highly-knowledgeable lady that they are Naga sadhus. They are people who have renounced the world and are known for their pure asceticism. And Kalam is Bomb Daddy? Wonder who Bomb Mommy is?
Middle-class, yes. But if science is loved so much by the “Hindu patriarchs of the Sangh parivar”, does that not prove that the Sangh is actually a progressive group. It has been proved that science and religion do not go hand in hand. Yes, we do have that “programmed for science” problem, but that’s because it is what has generated the maximum jobs.
We really fail to grasp what she is trying to say with her remark on IITs. Anyone?
We don’t know who she is quoting (as if we care), but the paragraph above clearly expresses her distaste for three things: Science, Brahmins and Tamils. The know-it-all-lady doesn’t even realise that most scientists are so engrossed with their work that they do not have time for even their families. They are not journalists of her kind who talk, talk and talk whether it or not it rhymes or reasons.
Ah, another gem! We didn’t know our atomic scientists were Mr. Indias.
That explains why Liberals and Seculars haranguing from ornate daises and writing long columns in the media in support of terrorists sound so illogical.
Guess what Adolf Hitler was fascinated with? Arts. Need we say more.
If science is “insane”, according to Sagarika, then babies really are delivered by storks and Sun revolves around the Earth.
