    ...If they don’t believe me, they are welcome to Google their own favourite map of Akhand Bharat and prove me wrong. But I know they can’t. There is ample historical evidence that Sri Lanka was an integral part of the Chola empire under Rajendra Chola, India’s greatest emperor of all time, whose kingdom extended from the Ganges in the north to the Maldives, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and the Andaman and Nicobar islands. Indians embarrassed? So it is a bit much to find today’s Sri Lankans – whose ancestors already lost to us twice, once to Rajendra Chola and once to Lord Rama – trying to embarrass today’s Indians by publicly wearing masks and performing acts of vomiting and breathlessness during a cricket match in India’s beautiful capital city. I must inform them that they have again failed miserably – Indians are not easily embarrassed. But that doesn’t stop people from trying. ...

    ...That’s why they oppose cow slaughter. Likewise, I am not, personally speaking, a Rajput. But I feel as bad as any outraged Rajput that the film Padmavati hasn’t been properly banned. Its release has only been postponed, not cancelled for all time to come. My biggest fear is that it will be released eventually, perhaps after the Gujarat elections. By then it would have remained in suspended animation for too long, and the damage would have been done. Yes, I am referring to the enormous damage this film is doing to civil discourse. On the offensive As always, the culprits are the insensitive left-liberals, who have again taken to blaming the victims — in this case, Rajput protesters — for creating the controversy. Not only did they not get offended by the film, they even took offence at these Rajputs taking offence at the film. Incredible as it sounds, the reason given by them for not getting offended is that they haven’t seen the film yet. Hello! Can someone please explain to me why you need to see a film in order to be offended by it? ...

    ...In my humble opinion, this obsessive whining about the smog is nothing but an aggravated symptom of a sympathy-deficit disorder. Our own tragedies Every part of India has its own exclusive natural disaster. Bihar and Assam, for instance, have their floods that arrive punctually every year to give everyone swimming and boating lessons. Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are regularly hit by drought, which they shamelessly use to extract sympathy and funds from Delhi. Mumbai gets a lot of attention, thanks to the annual monsoon flooding that puts the Spirit of Mumbai on display for everyone to admire. Bengalureans get their annual quota of sympathy from their traffic, which, like the ovum, doesn’t move but keeps growing. Kolkatans in any case don’t need the sympathy of their intellectual inferiors, which is you, if you are a non-Bong from non-Kolkata. ...

    ...But so far, its contents have remained secret. Last month, an employee of BMKJ who was fired for refusing to link his sperm count to Aadhaar leaked the entire report to me. All about ‘vikas’ Going through the 560-page report, I was floored by its stupendous insight, which was this: India should not blindly ape the Western model of ‘vikas’ (or development) by offering its citizens sops like free schooling, universal healthcare, affordable public transport, libraries, playgrounds, pension, etc. Instead, India should, the report said, pursue ‘vikas’ by focussing on what it does best: building statues. This is brilliant stuff, as you can see. And it offers two fantastic ideas for a mega statue, either of which could easily take India to the three goals stated above. ...

    ...Besides, I have my suspicions. It’s quite possible that everyone is stressed out only because they’ve been brainwashed by the fake news being disseminated by platforms such as al-Qaeda’s ISI-backed propaganda wing, Al News, which recently changed its name to Alt News. If that is the case, then the best remedy is what our Prime Minister has been advocating from Day 1: immerse yourself in Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. I can tell you from personal experience that it works brilliantly. Whenever my anxiety levels shoot up, I start cleaning my room. In 20 minutes, I’m as calm as James Bond in a burning helicopter. Contributing to the economy Mental health benefits apart, there really is only one solution to our economic woes: Clean India. If every Indian goes out — or rather, doesn’t go out — and works hard to make the country Open Defecation Free (ODF) by 2019, the economy will automatically get back on track. ...
