Insightful newsletter of Drishtikone - Issue #78: Beauty and the Beast and Chinese Organ Trade

Last updated on Aug 1, 2022

Beauty is good. Beast is evil.

Existence is both. Manifestation of the infinite. Infinite that is Divine.

Love one, shun another - then how does one embrace the existence or the divine?

Those who define their activism by batting for the beast cannot shun the beauty. Just as those who place only beauty on the pedestal and demonize the beast, will have a distorted understanding of the divine.

In its honest form, embracing the beast is a profound action. A way to live fully.

In that state, you cannot distinguish. You have embraced even which others abhor - out of disgust, ignorance and prejudice.

You embrace even that because you look beyond disgust. Beyond what is abhorred.

The counter-activists in today’s world are a prejudiced lot. They want to only make a statement. They don’t care about the inherent contradictions that they carry within themselves. Those who value beauty but abhor the beast are prejudiced against life. Those who value the beast to sneer at the beauty embrace the disgusting without touching life itself.

In that state of bias and prejudice, all they are left with in the end belongs ironically in the realm of the beastliness.

What could have been a step into the profundity of life becomes a spiral into the dungeons of disgust and beastly existence.

FINALLY, EDUCATION FOR INDIANS!

Before we start, we have remember the date - July 29, 2020. That is the day when the next generation’s future would have been re-shaped. After Max Mueller’s mischievous education policies and British education system to create slaves for it’s colonial empire, this is the first time that major reforms have happened in the Indian education system. In fact, this is the first time in almost a thousand years that someone has set in motion a set of changes in the Indian education that take into account the needs and strengths of India.

Before we discuss the main changes, let us look at where the Indian education has been.

India’s education has been languishing. What was required urgently to handle the growing human resources in India, was the least priority. Two important things have happened:

  1. Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) to be increased to to 50% from the current 26%, creating an additional 35 million seats in colleges
  2. increasing the education budget to 6% of the GDP from the present 4%.

The New Education Policy also says that:

  1. By 2040, all higher education institutions (HEIs) shall aim to become multidisciplinary
  2. By 2030 there will be at least one large multidisciplinary institution in or near every district.
  3. Special Education Zones (SEZ) will be set up in backward districts

The new education system will bring flexibility in the streams that kids take. So, you are no longer stuck in one stream and a generation of well-rounded individuals will emerge.

Foreign universities will also be encouraged to come to India to set up shop. This should provide better educational standards for Indians in the coming years.

It has also been decided to include vocational training courses from middle school (class 6) only where students will also be given a chance to intern for around 10 days. Coding will also become a part of the school curriculum.

The changes are too widespread and deep to discuss in one edition. We will look at these in detail very soon.

eagles have landed - why game changers?

A lot has been made of the Chinese J-20 fifth-generation fighter and other planes. But the fact is that on February 27, 2019, when the catfight happened with the Indian Air Force, Pakistan used it’s F-16s and NOT the Chinese JF-17. The Chinese aircraft were merely giving air defence cover. Even in the South China Sea, the Chinese are using Russian Su-30 and Su-35 fighters against the US threat and not its J-20 fighters. As former Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa says:

The fact is that the Chinese fighters are no match for the American equipment Majority of Chinese equipment is reverse engineering of Russian equipment and fighters have designs of either Su-27 or Su 30 platform. They are even powered by Russian AL 31 F (Su-30) and RD 33 (MiG-29) engines,” (Source)

The former Chief evaluates the threat from Chinese air force and Indian capabilities in this way:

“ If the IAF is successful in destruction of enemy air defences and suppression of enemy air defences, then the Chinese fighters out in the open at Hotan air base and at Gonggar air base at Lhasa airport are fair targets. Some 70 Chinese aircraft are without protection at Hotan and some 26 aircraft may be parked inside a tunnel which the PLA were building at Lhasa air base,”

It is also to be notes that India is negotiating the purchase of Hammer missiles, which range from 60 to 70 kilometers, which would help in the Indian Air Force’s capabilities against China. It is known that the Rafale’s already have air-to-air ‘Meteor’ or long-range missiles, along with Scalp cruise missile and MICA weapons system which will dramatically increase the striking capability of the Indian Air Force (Source)

Rafale or F-35: Indian Rafale Jets 'Equally Dangerous' As US' Stealth F-35 Aircraft

India is eagerly awaiting the first batch of Rafale jets from France. The Indian Air Force (IAF) has confirmed that these “game-changer” aircraft could be put into action straight away against China and would use the weaponry that the stealth, fifth-generation F-35 aircraft are using.

So when the “birds landed”, everyone was jubilant. The planes got a ceremonial water canon welcome at the Ambala air base.

The ever humorous AMUL advertising was at its best once again!

the “Made in India” part

As per the agreement with Dassault, the company was committed to 50% offset for the planes to be made in India. For that the company set up JVs and partnerships with over 100 firms in India.

Within the framework of the September 2016 Inter-Government Agreement between France and India, Dassault Aviation has sold 36 Rafale aircraft to India. In compliance with the Indian regulations (Defence Procurement Procedure) and as frequent with such a contract, Dassault Aviation has committed to offsets in India worth 50% of the value of the purchase. In order to deliver some of these offsets, Dassault Aviation has decided to create a joint-venture. Dassault Aviation has freely chosen to make a partnership with India’s Reliance Group. This joint-venture, Dassault Reliance Aerospace Ltd (DRAL), was created February 10, 2017. Other partnerships have been signed with other companies such as BTSL, DEFSYS, Kinetic, Mahindra, Maini, SAMTEL,… Other negotiations are ongoing with a hundred-odd other potential partners. (Source)

So, those who are saying that India “just bought the planes” and not make it, miss the point about the 50% of these being “Made in India”.

never forget Manohar Parrikar and rahul gandhi

As the Rafales come in, Indians should never forget the contribution of the amazing Manohar Parrikar in negotiating the deal and getting these aircrafts in.

Also, one cannot forget the absolute deviousness of that political opportunist called Rahul Gandhi. He used his visit to see the ailing Parrikar only to come out and spew lies and bullshit about Rafale deal.

This is the letter that Parrikar had to write from his deathbed at that time to counter the vicious campaign!!

An honest liberal is one who, when purchased, sells her soul and her mother along!

This rings so true for Deepika Padukone.

Former RAW officer NK Sood has discussed how Aneel Mussarat, the ISI agent, had called Deepika Padukone to go and meet the Tukde gang in JNU. Deepika Padukone got a called from Karachi and Dubai before she went to JNU for her infamous meeting.

For this ostensibly she was paid Rs 5 crores!

What Mr. Sood is saying may not be too far-fetched. After all, Aneel Mussarat was invited to the wedding of Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. And, interestingly two people not invited from the industry were Sushant Singh Rajput and Kangana Ranaut.

hundreds missing for organs in china?

In a rather startling tweet, a popular Chinese YouTuber says that hundreds of students have been missing in Wuhan. She shares a list. Now organ donation is a default option.

@jenniferatntd

#CCP's professor Yew-Kwang Ng is suggesting making consent to organ donation as a default option. In #CCP's China, this could mean a license for killing. See the long lists of missing university students in #Wuhan? Hundreds of students have gone missing since 2014. https://t.co/wNf1FYCBsU

And this is not the first time. Falun Gong practitioner have been talking about forced organ harvesting for long. Now this is also being discussed about the Uighur population.

#FalunGong practitioners have been raising the same issue since 2006, when the “form of evil yet to be seen on this planet” was first exposed.

China is amongst the top organ transplanting countries. Jennifer asks - from where are so many organs coming from?

China's organ transplantations to top the world in 2020: expert - Xinhua | English.news.cn

BEIJING, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) – China is set to see the most organ transplantations in the world in 2020, an expert said Thursday.

Wall Street Journal talked about thi last year when they discussed the mess of organs trade in China.

China stands accused of a gruesome trade in human organs. It’s difficult to prove, because the victims’ bodies are disposed of and the only witnesses are the doctors, police and prison guards involved. Even so, the evidence supports a damning verdict. The charge is that many prisoners of conscience—Falun Gong members, Uighur Muslims, Tibetan Buddhists and “underground” Christians—have been subjected to medical testing and had their organs forcibly removed. Those organs have fed an enormous trade in organ transplants. (Source)

Unfortunately, no media in the world discusses that gruesome record of China openly. Very few articles, if any are available.

nota bene

Devotion in Court: When Senior Supreme Court lawyer and former Attorney General of India, K. Parasaran—the lawyer for ‘Ram Lalla Virajman’, the deity in Ayodhya—used to argue in Supreme Court, first he took off his shoes, folded his hands in reverence with closed eyes and Tilak on his forehead and bowed his head on the files to start argument barefoot before judge. He put on his shoes only after he finished his plea. (Source)
