Thinking Aloud

The continuing acceptance of the open gargantuan fraud by the world, the world consisting of all sorts of people who have mattered or matter, is somewhat akin to the world eating shit and posing as if it were enjoying some exquisite cuisine. It is like the world, including very prestigious institutions such as Supreme Court of India, getting continuously raped by the mafia, and shrieking in ecstasy! It is similar to the world, especially the multitude of intellectuals, roaming naked under the illusion of being well dressed. It is not much different from the world happily digging own grave. These may appear very strong words, objectionable to many, but have been necessitated by the action or rather inaction of the world so far. One needs to have some self respect and sense to understand and grasp this!

What is the world? I mean human world. It consists of about 7 billion men and women of flesh and blood. In fact, it does not include only those living, but also those who have lived and have influenced and shaped the present world through their lives. So all the great philosophers like Socrates, Platos, Aristotles, Confuciuses, Voltaires, Sartres etc.; all the great writers and poets – a great number of them; all the great scientists and inventors like Einsteins and Newtons; a big number of philanthropists; extraordinarily talented and intelligent people; the great preachers like Buddhas and Vivekanandas; hundreds and thousands of award winners of the past; even a bigger number of celebrities, heroes, and super heroes; an uncountable number of law-enforcers, advocates and judges; great and not so great political leaders like Abraham Lincolns, Mahatma Gandhis, and Nelson Mandelas; and of course billions of the common people who lived and died – are part and parcel of this world. So are all those living who can be categorized as above or even further. What has become or is becoming of this world?

A few months back, by grace of God, a book ‘We the Oodles’ by me and published by a well reputed publisher Prabhat Prakashan of New Delhi came into existence. This book among other things chronicled not only the existence of a very big 24×7 fraud and crime through game of Cricket; but also brought on record indisputable culpability in the continuing crime, of judges and officials of Supreme Court of India including even a few CJIs (Chief Justices of India), of PM of India, of all those at the helm of Cricket administration in ICC and various Cricket Boards, all the well-known cricketers over past decade and even earlier, the top Corporate leaders, and a host of other big-wigs including almost all the editors in Indian media.

This culpability has further been reinforced as a result of my earlier submissions on this platform (VOM) and more documents brought therein, after publishing of the book. I continued to act since I continued to breathe! Somehow I couldn’t act dead like billions of my co-habitants on the mother earth, especially those who consider themselves of any value. But lo! The human world continues to be thoroughly deaf and dumb even now! A fraud worth trillion dollars – also funding the terror activities across the world – continues unabated. The world outlined in the first paragraph continues to act dead! And I continue to wonder with each breath – how can human world, with so many greats of past and present, become so utterly degraded and absurd! The world keeping quiet till it didn’t know or couldn’t be sure of the fraud as it has been, could be understood; but the world keeping deathly mum even after this massive fraud has become too open and lies totally exposed is too inexplicable, something that can no way be accepted and/or pardoned!!

Nothing in any scripture or preaching or in accumulated words of wisdom over centuries, being exchanged daily on social media by the millions of educated intellectuals, justifies this deathly silence! It is right that a lot many frauds and crimes continue in the human world surreptitiously; but here is a gargantuan fraud and crime – harming the man-kind in many ways – continuing too openly now through the tens or hundreds of tipsters on social media announcing fixing of each and every cricket match including league matches involving international players, taking place anywhere around the world! The world keeping quiet about it while talking about sundry other things and rights and wrongs is tantamount to utter bull-shit. No?

Let us see the scenario. On one hand, the scripted cricket in the garb of a competitive sport is taking place 24 x 7 round the globe. Not to go any far back, one needs just to see the recordings of today’s match (on 5/1/2021) between Melbourne Renegades and Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League (BBL) of Australia. For those who don’t know, BBL is similar to IPL of India in format and popularity. The hara-kiri by Melbourne Renegades team, first bowlers and afterwards batsmen, under the captaincy of an Australian captain Aaron Finch to inflict a humiliating defeat on itself was too conspicuous to be missed by anyone having a reasonable understanding of the game of Cricket; taking one hand off while completing the shot by Beau Webster to ensure getting caught at long off instead of the ball crossing the boundary probably taking the cake.

Partly it reminds of the rock bottom performance by Indian captain Virat Kohli led RCB in 2019 IPL. Anyway, inexplicable cricket played by teams to lose a match supposedly being played for great prestige, match after match, is now something too frequent, too open, and hence boring; be it a league match or an international match between two countries. In this edition of BBL, hara-kiri being committed by Melbourne Renegades being captained by none other than the Australian captain to lose big, match after match, has brought some novelty to the scripting and stands out. The script writers have all the aces up their sleeves and can script anything, howsoever ridiculous it may look from point of view of competitive cricket! It is so because there is absolutely no one to question them. The bottom line is to keep changing patterns, keep the bettors fooled and loot them, making them win and feel good once a while so that they continue to be hooked.

The historical Indian batting collapse in the 2nd innings of the first Test match against Australia last month may still be fresh in many memories; something happening beyond anyone’s wildest dreams, but made to happen for the betting syndicates to rake in the moolah! On the other hand, against this indisputably proven and exposed background, the suited-booted gentlemanly experts, celebrity cricketers of past and present, and commentators discuss about and explain various nuances of the game for hours on our TV screens as if some competitive sport was taking place – crossing all limits of absurdity. The cricket journalists fill pages of magazines and daily newspapers similarly. They all continue to treat the public as rank fools with total disdain with a straight face and without the slightest shame. And the public continues to relish being so treated without any qualms. Such a continuing scenario even today renders the very existence of the human world absolutely nonsensical, notwithstanding the millions of intellectuals continuing to hold themselves in esteem!

The continuing acceptance of the open gargantuan fraud by the world, the world consisting of all sorts of people who have mattered or matter, is somewhat akin to the world eating shit and posing as if it were enjoying some exquisite cuisine. It is like the world, including very prestigious institutions such as Supreme Court of India, getting continuously raped by the mafia, and shrieking in ecstasy! It is similar to the world, especially the multitude of intellectuals, roaming naked under the illusion of being well dressed. It is not much different from the world happily digging own grave. These may appear very strong words, objectionable to many, but have been necessitated by the action or rather inaction of the world so far. One needs to have some self respect and sense to understand and grasp this!

Has my mind become diseased? Have I become depraved? Am I victim of some severe obsession? I am sure the world will love to perceive so and declare so, thereby acquitting itself of its unpardonable crime and sheer idiocy! Because no one has any justification for what is happening in name of Cricket, a popular international sport, and for his/her own acceptance of the same or deafening silence. If there were to be a fair trial in any Court, even some of the recent CJIs of Supreme Court of India will be found guilty of dereliction of duty, if not of culpability in the crime, by a most generous jury! Yes, I am obsessed, but not with fake and fraudulent Cricket. I am certainly obsessed with the nonchalant acceptance of such an absurdity, of such an open crime, by the world.

How can the intellectuals of the world act blind to it and yet continue parading their intelligence and wisdom otherwise? If one could understand, the implications are too self-defeating and scary for the human world; especially because the Media, not a soul in it excluded, – the widely perceived conscience keeper of the world – is marketing and patronizing this colossal fraud and crime more than anyone else! How can we expect any good from such Establishment and Media who are hand in glove in perpetuating such an elephantine crime and fraud on the masses? Won’t it be imprudent on our part to expect that such a world will progress in the right direction? The book ‘We the Oodles’ has already brought out how the damage inflicted by Corona Virus on humanity is more a result of accumulating human degradation than of the Nature’s wrath. But the conceited or rather stupid world chooses to continue on the suicidal path, indulging in futile talk all the time!
