But, she became loyal to India a trifle late, by 16 years!

"Today, my loyalty embraces a wider family — India, my country, whose people have so generously welcomed me to become one of them." This is Sonia Gandhi addressing the University of Tilburg in the Netherlands on June 11, 2007. It is true that the people of India who were always in awe of the Nehru-Indira family — more, who, thanks to their colonial hangover, loved things and people foreign — welcomed the Italian-born Antonia Maino, now Sonia, into the nation’s first family.

The people of any other country, including the country from which Sonia hails, would have seriously objected to a foreigner in the house of the rulers. Yes, she is right. The people of India were extraordinarily generous to her and welcomed Sonia the unknown, the stranger, without knowing anything about her. But how about her claim of loyalty to them in return? How loyally did she respond to the generosity of the ordinary and unsuspecting people of India, that she now so generously acknowledges?

The chronology dating back to 1968 when, many reading newspapers today, who must have been lying on the lap of their mothers. The chronology brings out what she did in response to the people of India, who she herself acknowledges, so generously welcomed her to become part of them. It shows that from the outset she had decided not to become part of them and remained so for 16 years. Her determination to marry Rajiv Gandhi and enter the Nehru family was equalled by her determination not to become an Indian citizen! She was bent on continuing to remain and remained an Italian and a foreigner in India, not for a while or a year or couple of years testing the waters in India, but, for 16 long years — yes sixteen long years — from 1968 to 1984!

It was not that in her blissful merger into the Nehru-Indira family and deluged by affection of the people around her, she forgot all about the technicality of acquiring Indian citizenship. It was not a case of just an accidental omission to apply for citizenship. From day one she was determined not to apply to become an Indian. She consciously chose to remain a foreigner and retain her Italian nationality and passport. The Indian law on foreigners required her to apply for and get permission to stay in India as a foreigner and this she had to do every five years.

Determined to live in India and in the Prime Minister’s house as a foreigner, she dutifully applied every six years — first in 1968, afterwards in 1973, thereafter in 1978 and finally in 1983 — for permission to reside in India! So she was just a guest, not part, of Indians for 16 years. She must have decided to remain a foreigner in India even earlier, as she knew long before 1968 that she was to marry Rajiv Gandhi and would have to come and reside in India. Sonia finally applied for Indian citizenship in 1983 and got it in 1984, on April 30 to be precise.

Why did Sonia suddenly, and after 16 years, aspire to become an Indian and positively respond to the generosity of the Indians in welcoming her? Any one who knew a little of politics also knew that Rajiv, who became the general secretary of the Congress party after the accidental demise of Sanjay in 1980, was set to become the Number 2 to Indira Gandhi in the government after the elections in early 1985. He could never have become a Minister under Indira with a foreigner as his spouse. This is what forced Sonia to acquiesce to become an Indian.

Thus it is not the love of India or the generous Indians who welcomed her that made her to give up her Italian citizenship, but, the real reason was the prospect of her husband ascending to power, which means herself in power! Yet she tells the Amsterdam audience that power never attracted her. She would never tell the truth that she did not want to become an Indian for 16 years and remained a foreigner in India. She would never tell that, even when she applied for Indian citizenship, she applied only as Antonia Maino Gandhi, with Sonia as just a pseudonym.

She would never tell that Rahul and Priyanka were under the Italian nationality law, Italian nationals by birth and thus even now Italian nationality inheres in them inalienably. She would not tell these truths. Had she told these truths, she could not have spoken what she spoke at Tilburg University. Yet, what she spoke remains the truth on record, while what she did not speak is the real truth. So what she spoke in Amsterdam is something other than truth. QED: the sense of loyalty to India which she claims came a trifle late, by 16 years!

Time to show our fist!

What do we do if a cockroach or a scorpion enters our house? we do not make it our pet, instead we just kill it. Likewise we have some pests entering our country. And now i want to clean it!
But who am I?
hmm,I am just a stupid common man who is wanting to clean his house, I mean country. I am someone who is afraid to get into a bus or train these days. I am someone whose wife and mom pray on every time I step out of my house as like I am going for a war, while I am actually going to my work! She is afraid that I might not return, she calls every two hours to find if I had my tea, if I had my lunch. But actually she wants to find out whether I am still alive.
I am someone who sometimes gets stuck in a rain or in a blast. I am someone who suspects the person carrying a rosary. I am someone who suspects any abandoned luggage or any beard man in bus stop. If I open a shop am afraid to choose a god’s name, as someone might burn it during any communal riot. No matter which two parties fighting, I am the first one to be killed. Am very much true, this is the current scenario in our country. Everyone is feeling insecure these days,to step out of the house. Do you want to live a life and die every moment of it in fear? They will keep on killing us until we learn to give a solid reply! We the INDIANS ARE RESILIENT BY FORCE, NOT BY CHOICE! Do you think those people called "terrorists" who kill us are wiser than us? Just type “bomb” in any Internet searches and you will get, hundreds of websites showing you how to make them. All the information is accessible and that too for free!
The problem with us is that we got used to all these atrocities. If one bomb blasts occurs say recent Mumbai blasts, we watch it on all the news channels. We send SMSs and we call up people and find whether they are safe and become happy if they are safe. Then, instead of fighting against the situation we start to adjust with it. Ya it is true we have our compulsions; we have to maintain a family but that is why we appoint a government to run this nation, believing that they will carry out this pest control. But do you think this government doing this job effectively? Certainly not. Instead they are just supporting their cause by not doing anything stringent.This government do want to make the whole country into Kashmir, where bomb blast is as common as Kashmir roses. Remember how many convicts are still happily alive, in spite of courts judgment to hang them. Why is this government not kicking them in the butt? It takes at least 10 years to prove a person guilty. Don’t you think this is a question mark on this government’s ability? All this should stop. This whole bloody system is flawed. Tell this useless government in a single voice “If you don’t clean up this mess, then we the common man will have to do something about it”.
Moreover I feel bomb blast happened in Mumbai, Ahmadabad, Delhi, so on.. are not just a terrorist activity, but it was a question. The question was ,we are going to keep killing you and what can you do? Yes they have asked us this question. It is just left to us how and when we are going to respond to this simple question. All these may look like a movie dialogue but I feel it is true. And these are very much relevant to the current Indian political scenario. People! we need someone, some leader to take bold steps in the future at least, who won’t hesitate to hang a convict, irrespective of his religion and minority, majority, vote bank politics. All we need is this, at least next year when our child goes out; he should travel without fear on buses, trains or anywhere else.
Enough Indians! Wake up, enough sleeping for 60 years under one inefficient government. We are not just a common man anymore or at least for next couple of months. So don’t just eat, live and die like a common man. The election has come. And we got a wand, to change your future, my future and fortune of this sacred mother nation. I very much hope that the wand in our hands will also teach this inefficient UPA government a hard lesson. So let us bring a change in our political system and governance to bring back the golden age of safe and respectful India with a determined leader and decisive government!
So It is a high time to ignore the "hand" which was covering our eyes for the past 60years, and take the flowers to make our country blossom like a "lotus"!
Jai Hind.
