QUOTATIONS – Superultramodern Science and Philosophy
Absurdity is never absolute.
Nothing is completely absurd. (Variant)
Nothing is completely meaningless. (Variant)
Strong agnosticism is not true agnosticism, and in saying this firmly I slur the spirit of agnosticism.
If you are a weak agnostic, you are a man of science; if you are a strong agnostic, or a theist, or an atheist, you are a man of religion.
I am a weakly agnostic theist, having 94.99…% < belief in the ‘ultimate questioner’ < 99.99…%, as per my UQV (Ultimate Questioner’s Vanity) theory.
I am 99% sure that God exists, but the remaining 1% makes me an agnostic.
I am 99% certain that God exists, but for the remaining 1% uncertainty I am an agnostic. (Variant)
I am 99% a theist, 1% an atheist, and 100% an agnostic. (Variant)
If you are an atheist, you are a fool. If you are a theist, you are either a fool or God. If you are an agnostic, you are a wise mortal.
An atheist must be a fool. A theist must be either a fool or God. An agnostic must be a wise mortal. (Variant)
I am agnostic about everything, including my agnosticism.
I am agnostic about everything, including of course agnosticism. (Variant)
I am agnostic about everything, including agnosticism itself of course. (Variant)
I am agnostic about my agnosticism. (Variant)
I am convinced that an electronic machine, no matter how smart and intelligent, being still a mere spatial structure in concept, can neither innovate nor even understand the axiom: ‘No spatial structure can be a representation of any feeling’. Such innovation can only be a work of a non-spatial mind, like a human being, and only such innovation, it should be acknowledged, can pave the way for further scientific achievements.
In attempting to speculate the outcome of the possible race for supremacy between natural and artificial intelligence, it makes sense to consider that there are basically two sorts of machines – spatial machines and non-spatial machines. The universe is physically a non-spatial machine. The artificial machines, like electronic computers, manifesting artificial intelligence, are conceptually spatial machines, physically existing in non-spatial form. A human brain, manifesting natural intelligence, has both conceptually spatial as well as non-spatial components. Now, to be the real master of the game of life is to be able to manipulate the physically non-spatial universe with one’s conceptually nonspatial intelligence, where the non-spatial human brain stands some chance and the spatial artificial electronic brain does not stand any.
Celestial bodies are like palm lines. They have mere information about your destiny, not any cause.
The worst of all superstitions may be that astrology is a superstition.
They often say, “What’s the point in astrology if you can’t change your destiny?”. Well, it’s true that you can’t change your destiny, but still it helps knowing about gravity.
Astrology, like phenomena such as wave-particle duality, seems astonishingly convincingly true (though it is important here to note that astrology, like any other natural phenomenon such as gravity or quantum non-locality, does not seem to be logically and physically necessary), but at the same time it seems that the stars and planets cannot influence human affairs to the level expected by astrology. What can then be said is that the stars and planets, like any other spatial bodies, are mere (conceptual) objects in the universal non-spatial computer program, which could be considered as a modern, computational description of subjective idealism, the theory that seems most convincing in explaining phenomena like wave-particle duality and quantum non-locality.
Astrological phenomena seem to be a result of unusual coordination between some of the planetary and stellar objects and earthly affairs, the sort of coordination appearing in phenomena such as wave-particle duality and quantum non-locality… If quantum mechanics is a science, astrology too may be a science.
ज्योतिषशास्त्राला थोतांड समजणार्या, परंतु त्याचा फारसा गंधही नसलेल्या, आधुनिक विज्ञान व तत्त्वज्ञानाचे तोकडे ज्ञान असलेल्या, अर्ध्या हळकुंडाने पिवळ्या झालेल्या, पूर्वग्रहदूषित, हेकेखोर व्यक्तिंना व अंधश्रद्धा निर्मूलन समितीवाल्यांना बळी पडू नका. ज्योतिषशास्त्र, तसेच हिंदू धर्म व अध्यात्म अत्यंत महान आहेत! त्यांचे ज्ञान, अनुभूति व लाभ घेण्याचा प्रयत्न करा.
An atheist is as religious as a theist.
Theists and atheists are equally religious. (Variant)
Men of atheism and men of theism are alike in that they both are men of religion. (Variant)
Atheism is not profanity; it is stupidity.
The last thing I can believe in is the illusion of consciousness.
The development of intellect is like this: Theism – Atheism – Agnosticism – Theism.
The development of intellect is from theism to theism, via atheism and agnosticism. (Variant)
The mechanics of the real cause, the true cause, the only cause – I mean ‘God’ – is beyond human logic and intellect. Man may – and I speculate he will – one day discover the mechanics, the nature of existence, of God; but the time man discovers it, he will have become Superman.
The cause is the father and logical necessity is the mother of the effect; though the mother never seems to exist and the father ever seems to exist beyond logic and reason.
Moral certainty is intellectual immorality.
Certainty is the most vivid condition of ignorance and the most necessary condition for knowledge.
Certainty is uncertainly certain.
I am philosophical Christ, crucified on the cross of ignorance for the sake of divine vanity.
I am a philosopher-son, born to suffer for my divine father’s vanity. (Variant)
Christianity would be helpless without the idea of freewill and the idea of freewill would be helpless without incongruity.
A colour, like any other experience such as pain or pleasure, does not exist in space; its existence is non-spatial.
Colours do not exist in space; they are non-spatial. (Variant)
Colours cannot exist in space. (Variant)
Common sense is the most unscientific thing in the world.
There is only one real computer – the universe – whose hardware is made up of non-spatial states of consciousness and software is made up of superhuman as well as non-superhuman thoughts.
The real computer – the universe – is non-spatial.
The real computer is non-spatial. (Variant)
I’m more interested in the computer on the universe than the computer on my desk.
It is self-evident to me that consciousness is non-spatial. It may not be self-evident to most of the people in this world. But then a proposition self-evident to most of the people may not be self-evident to mentally handicapped people and chimpanzees.
That ‘consciousness is non-spatial’ is self-evident. (Variant)
It is self-evident that consciousness is non-spatial. (Variant)
Consciousness is self-evidently non-spatial. (Variant)
Nothing spatial is consciousness.
Nothing spatial is feeling or consciousness. (Variant)

Nothing spatial can be a representation of any state of consciousness. (Variant)
It is logically necessary for consciousness to be non-spatial.
For consciousness, it is logically necessary to be non-spatial. (Variant)
That ‘consciousness is non-spatial’ is logically necessary and logically atomic.
That ‘consciousness is non-spatial’ is logically necessary and atomic. (Variant)
The fact that consciousness is non-spatial is logically necessary and atomic. (Variant)
Consciousness is logically and physically absolutely distinct from any possible spatial system.
Consciousness is irreducible to any possible spatial structure.
A spatial system and a state of consciousness are irreducible to each other.
Spatial systems and states of consciousness are mutually irreducible. (Variant)
No knowledge of any spatial system can itself be sufficient to provide the knowledge of consciousness, the knowledge of what it is really like seeing the colour red for example.
Consciousness is most certainly a real event or phenomenon. A real event or phenomenon cannot exist without the existence of some real, physical substance or thing. Consciousness, however, in logical or conceptual terms, is, self-evidently, absolutely distinct from any possible spatial structure or system; most undeniably, no knowledge of any possible spatial structure or system can give the knowledge of consciousness, the knowledge of what it is really like seeing the colour red for example. Furthermore, if A, in logical or conceptual terms, is absolutely distinct from B, A cannot be physically identical to B. Consciousness is, therefore, a non-spatial physical thing. In other words, consciousness is a thing which is physical and non-spatial.
Consciousness is a non-spatial physical substance, an entity or a thing. (Variant)
A blow on one’s head cannot possibly be the cause of one’s consciousness of pain; for there can be a world in which there is a blow, say a moderately strong blow, on one’s head – the head of a perfectly normal, living human being – but there is absolutely no consciousness of pain. A can be considered to be the cause of B if and only if A is (logically) necessarily followed by B; the way, for example, the exclusive act of removing one apple from a basket of two apples would necessarily result into the basket containing only one apple, in any possible world, with any possible logical or physical laws. It can be said in this case that the result of the basket of two apples now containing only one apple is caused by the (exclusive) act of removing one apple from the basket. In the case of consciousness, however, it is not (logically) necessary for B (i.e. consciousness) to follow A (i.e. any bodily, spatial process that is normally and wrongly considered the cause of B); for B is (logically) absolutely distinct from A. A can exist without B and B without A.
Consciousness, like any self-evident logical or mathematical fact or proposition, cannot be decomposed or explained. It’s an atomic thing, an entity that is logically and physically indivisible. It’s a non-spatial atom.
Consciousness is a non-spatial atom, logically and physically indivisible. (Variant)
It is possible for something as seemingly animate as an active human being to be void of any consciousness and for something as seemingly inanimate as a stone to be full of consciousness, because consciousness is logically, and therefore physically, absolutely distinct from any possible spatial system.
Even something like a stone may feel; it may be conscious.
Even a stone may have feelings; even a stone may be conscious. (Variant)
The non-spatial nature of consciousness makes it possible for any apparently unconscious entity to be conscious, and vice versa.
Consciousness can exist without the existence of anything that is spatial and anything that is conscious.
If energy and mass, wave and particle, are but different manifestations of the same thing, that same thing would be nothing but non-spatial consciousness.
The real matter is consciousness and the real mechanics is non-spatial.
Life is too meaningful to die.
Man is truly born the time he dies.
Death is as uncertain as life.
Life and death are equally uncertain. (Variant)
I think death is a deadly superstition.
Death is a deadly superstition. (Variant)
Man can control nothing, including himself.
The real doubt is the doubt that doubts that it doubts.
If knowledge is my God, doubt would be my religion.
Knowledge is my God; doubt is my religion. (Variant)
Anything may be possible, for that which is otherwise believed to be impossible at present could be possible as the intellectual capacities of the believer may be limited.
The statement ‘anything is possible’ is self-contradictory, for if ‘anything is possible’ ‘it is possible that something is not possible’. But, the statement ‘anything may be possible’ is not self-contradictory, for if ‘anything may be possible’ ‘it may be possible that something may not be possible’ or ‘it may be possible that something is not possible’, which do not contradict the statement ‘anything may be possible’, since it is equivalent to the statement ‘may be anything is possible’, as opposed to ‘anything is possible’ which is equivalent to ‘anything must be possible’. The real, universal doubt, therefore, is ‘anything may be possible’, not ‘anything is possible’.
My greatest hope is of knowledge and my greatest fear is of doubt.
My true duty is to seek Truth.
My ultimate duty is to seek Truth. (Variant)
We have done too much ‘spatial engineering’; the real thing is ‘non-spatial engineering’.
Aesthetics is the most subjective while mathematics is the most objective of disciplines; ethics lies in the middle.
Ethics without metaphysics is an impossibility.
My relentlessly skeptical mind does not permit me to be certain about anything, but if I had to be certain I would be certain about my own existence.
When it comes to explaining a phenomenon, ‘why’ and ‘how’ are fundamentally the same thing – for example, explaining why someone died is fundamentally the same as explaining how someone died and vice versa.
Man – due to the fundamental nature of his structure – is a slave to his fate.
Man is by nature a slave to his fate. (Variant)
Fate is the master of man, God the master of fate.
If man had free will, God would not have had complete freedom to realise His dream.
If man had free will, God would not have been the master of His fate. (Variant)
The mechanics of free will is inconceivable to mankind.
Soul alone can have free will.
Only soul can possibly possess free will. (Variant)
General relativity describes gravity as a consequence of the curvature of spacetime. However, it does not describe how massive objects know of the presence of the curvature of spacetime. In other words, general relativity does not describe the representation of the intelligence by which massive objects follow the spacetime curvature. As such, the general relativity theory is a profoundly incomplete description of gravitation, and the most convincing way to complete it appears to be metaphysical idealism, in which the representation of the intelligence is non-spatial superhuman states of consciousness.
One of the great intellectual mistakes Einstein made is that he thought that space and time are physically or ontologically entangled. In the present non-spatial universal computational program, space and time happen to be entangled to the extent that, under certain unique circumstances, changes in spatial measurements indicate changes in temporal ones. However, a change in the program itself may cause space and time to disentangle.
At school, I was a failure at learning geometry. Furthermore, it took me around ten years from then to learn that the universe itself had no geometry.
God would be the strangest thing to exist.
God exists beyond the ultimate paradox.
God speaks to Man through his destiny.
Man is an appearance; God is a reality.
God’s greatest thirst and His greatest sin is His ultimate vanity.
I am born to answer the ultimate question, the question about the nature of the ultimate questioner’s existence.
The existence of God is not logically necessary, and yet, on the basis of some profound peculiar empirical order in the universe, it seems that He exists as the ultimate uncreated Being, implying a paradox, as no logically unnecessary entity can be uncreated. This paradox is the ultimate question asked by God, who is nothing but the ultimate questioner.
God is a philosophical black hole – the point where reason breaks down.

God is a philosophical terrorist – asking a seemingly unanswerable philosophical question to quench His ultimate vanity.
God may not be omnipotent, but He is omniactive.
God is the ultimate philosophical questioner, the one who asks the logically paradoxical ultimate philosophical question about the nature of his own existence.
If God were to exist for the entire humanity, He would be profoundly vile, as He would allow the existence of unfathomable sin, stupidity, madness, and misery for no reason than His own despicable enjoyment. God exists though, not for all humanity, but for a one chosen man – a philosopher – who is bound to answer the greatest philosophical question, the question about the nature of the questioner’s existence, which progressively quenches the divine vanity.
God is a paradoxical animal, the animal awaiting the resolution of the paradox.
The definition of God is ‘uncreated material being’.
God created the world to be praised on the subtle nature of His existence.
God created Man to play the game of hide-and-seek.
The most conspicuous thing in the world is the existence of consciousness and the least conspicuous thing is the existence of God.
God wears the clothes of the ultimate paradox.
Resolve the paradox and God is naked.
God is like a woman who wants her clothes to be taken off slowly, one by one, so as to receive the best appreciation for her beauty.
God invented truth and made man discover it.
God invented truth; man discovered it. (Variant)
God is like gravity; He is logically unnecessary. But unlike gravity, He is the first phenomenon and therefore a paradox, since no logical unnecessity can be the first phenomenon.
The discovery of God begins at understanding that He ought to exist and ends at knowing how He could exist.
God seems to have no other interest in life than to be praised by a philosopher on the seemingly paradoxical nature of His existence.
God is noble but that doesn’t necessarily make Him gentle.

God is the master; man is the slave; and the duty of this slave is to quench his master’s ontological vanity through the work of philosophy.
God rules Man. (Variant)
Man is ruled by nothing but God. (Variant)
I am not mad for God; God is mad for me.
Your God defies reason; my God too defies reason; but your God defies the lowest of reason and my God defies the highest.
The God of the masses is an inanity to the intellect. (Variant)

God is the most precious jewel, locked in the most secure locker, made of the most notorious paradox.
God is a philosophical-suspense-thriller dramatist, producer & director.
GOOD AND EVIL
Evil is more fundamental than good.
Does pain exist only for the ultimate good or does pleasure exist only for the ultimate bad? Man might never know, for if he dies he has no means to find out and if he lives there is always a chance that the ultimate is yet to happen.
God is the only good and the only evil.
The only good is God and the only evil is also God. (Variant)
God is the only evil. His vanity made him the devil. (Variant)
Whatever is happening is happening for good, but that good is God’s good, not necessarily Man’s.
It is only a true philosopher that can see no evil in this world.
God answers good with good and evil with evil.
Vanity is the greatest of all evils.
The greatest of all evils is vanity. (Variant)
Gravity is neither a force nor a consequence of spacetime curvature. It is simply an orderly spatial illusion given to non-spatial observer/s.
Gravity – like any other spatial phenomenon – is a spatial illusion.

The language of God is Man’s consciousness.
The more I find life to be a great design, the more I suspect it to be singular in existence; the more I suspect it to be singular, the more I feel it to be specific and personal; the more I feel it to be personal, the more I think of it to be a mere question; and the more I think of it to be a question, the less I understand the questioner.
My existence is such that I do not really exist. At the end of understanding so much I understand that I know nothing. I suffer for being surrounded by intense suffering and yet I’m deeply suspicious if first of all there is indeed any consciousness except me. I strive to find the artist who may have fathered this great universal art but feel myself to be too feeble to accomplish this seemingly unattainable mission. Yet I have every respect for life, and it is this sheer respect that makes me live.
The meaning of life is ‘the ultimate questioner’s vanity’.

Life is slavery, serving God’s vanity. (Variant)
Life, by which I mean my life, is a great, or probably the greatest, design, from its very beginning to its end, the end that, I think, is unlikely to exist. Each and every bit of life is a part of the design. Design exists as the consequence of the ultimate questioner's vanity. And my mission is to find the most fundamental truth, which probably and exclusively involves the nature of the existence of the ultimate questioner.

Pure mathematics is a system of 100% precise and 99.99…% necessary propositions. (The term 'precise' means that every term in a proposition is absolutely clarified and every non-axiomatic proposition is supported on the basis of axiomatic one/s, leaving no doubt, except the 0.00…1% universal doubt, the principle that ‘anything may be possible’.)
Applied mathematics is a system of propositions constructed by applying some or up to all of the pure mathematical propositions to explain and/or predict unnecessary phenomena. In other words, applied mathematics is a system of 100% precise and 99.99…% unnecessary propositions.
‘Mathematics’ and ‘logic’ are perfect synonyms.
‘Mathematics’ and ‘logic’ are synonyms. (Variant)
Mathematics says that xº = 1, but I think philosophy would say that xº = 0. The equation xº = 1 thus I believe exemplifies what mathematics has been about and what remains to be done.
Matter is non-spatial feeling/s and Energy is the inherent capacity of the universe to make matter exist.
Consciousness is non-spatial matter, and all spatial matter is a mere projection of it.

The mechanics of the universe is non-spatial.
For every action there is a non-spatial, conceptual reaction.
To every action there is a non-spatial, conceptual reaction. (Variant)
I theorise that the universe is essentially a non-spatial computer, though a space, in which phenomena like quantum non-locality do not exist, may have separate existence. The mechanism of the non-spatial computer can be analysed through ‘non-spatial mechanics’, which I propose as a new branch of mechanics. It can be roughly said that the NSTP theory, through some non-spatial mechanics, describes how the universe works and the UQV theory explains why the universe exists. I believe that the establishment of the non-spatial mechanics will bring about an indispensable revolution in physics.
Meditation should be the foremost technology of the 21st century, the technology of reprogramming the non-spatial universal computer.
Let me summarise the core of my metaphysics, which comprises the NSTP (Non-Spatial Thinking Process) theory and, chiefly, the UQV (Ultimate Questioner’s Vanity) theory: Consciousness is self-evidently non-spatial and undeniably real. From simple phenomena such as gravity, to relatively advanced phenomena such as quantum non-locality, physics seems suggestive of subjective idealism, the view that space is an unreality and the (mental) experience of space is a reality. The order in the material universe – the laws of physics, for instance – suggests the existence of some superhuman mind – or God, as idealism usually names it – governing or controlling non-superhuman states of consciousness, such as mine and possibly yours. This is the first indication that some higher, superhuman intelligence exists in charge of the universe, including human affairs. The additional, higher order I see in my life – especially, and astonishingly convincingly, through Vedic astrology – further suggests that the superhuman mind has some philosophical purpose for being in control of my life. And it seems reasonable to infer that a mind, with such higher, intellectual purpose, would not cause, and be responsible for, the existence of minds too feeble to be of any help fulfilling that purpose, especially when the minds are prone to suffering – or to represent suffering, or the states of consciousness of suffering, to be correct technically. I might therefore be the only non-superhuman mind in the universe, existing in order to help the superhuman mind realise its purpose. And what other can the purpose be than that the ontologically subtle superhuman mind – or God, in popular terms – ‘ontologically subtle’ as being ‘logically paradoxical’: (logically) unnecessary and (physically) uncreated – wants to be discovered by me – the only man and the only philosopher – in order to quench its – or His – ultimate vanity? Isn’t, therefore, the world – designed to offer the greatest philosophical thrill and challenge – truly beautiful solely in the eyes of a true philosopher? And isn’t, at the same time, the logically paradoxical God a philosophical black hole – the point where reason breaks down? And hasn’t God, keeping me ignorant for the sake of a gradual, philosophical foreplay, made me philosophical Christ – crucified on the cross of ignorance for the sake of divine vanity?
Physics beyond the understanding of the ordinary physicist is called metaphysics.

God is a mystery awaiting demystification by Man.
Mystery is awaiting demystification. (Variant)
Mystery awaits demystification. (Variant)
The term ‘physical/empirical necessity’, as it is used to describe phenomena like gravity, which are not logically/conceptually necessary, is absurd and highly misleading, for it is clear that if some phenomenon, for example gravity, is logically/conceptually unnecessary then it cannot be physically/empirically necessary. And therefore, the terms ‘logical’/’conceptual’ are redundant when used to mention necessities.
Nothing that is logically unnecessary can be empirically necessary. (Variant)
Nothing that is logically unnecessary can be physically necessary. (Variant)
It is logically necessary for anything that is logically unnecessary to be physically unnecessary. (Variant)
It is logically possible to create a world in which gravitation between physical bodies does not exist. It is therefore also empirically possible to create such world. It only does not seem to be technically possible for a human being yet.
When something is physically necessary it is impossible for it to physically not exist or to physically exist in a different way. Now, that which is logically possible cannot be physically impossible (and also, that which is logically impossible cannot be physically possible). Thus, that which is logically unnecessary cannot be physically necessary (and also, that which is logically necessary cannot be physically unnecessary). Anything that is logically necessary is physically necessary and anything that is logically unnecessary is physically unnecessary. Logical and physical necessities and unnecessities always go hand in hand.
The phenomena that seem to be logical unnecessities (i.e. logically unnecessary or logically not necessary), such as gravity, should not be defined as physical necessities (i.e. physically necessary), for such definition implies the view that such phenomena are impossible to physically not exist or to physically exist in a different way; and such view, or such impossibility, seems perfectly invalid. Very specifically, gravity, as a coordination or a programme, may be changed (where the gravitational constant would be different from what it is now) or ended (where the gravitational constant would be zero).
The NSTP (Non-Spatial Thinking Process) theory entails a computational description of metaphysical idealism.
The world is a contradiction, the universe a paradox.
Man is a contradiction, God a paradox.
I believe in the existence of a thing, called God – the ultimate questioner, which I have speculated and considered to be the first thing – i.e. uncreated – but, at the same time, I do not understand how an unnecessary material thing can be the first – i.e. uncreated, hence the paradox. In other words, to make the best sense of my life, I conjecture and believe that there is a thing so (philosophically) strange that it is both ‘first’ and ‘a thing’; strange to me because I fail to understand how a thing can be the first – i.e. uncreated; since to me it is self-evidently necessary for an unnecessary thing to have a creator. And I conjecture the existence of such strange paradoxical thing – i.e. the ultimate questioner – for it quenches the demand for the best meaning of life/world – life/world that is philosophically challenging and extremely orderly. The ultimate paradox fits in the philosophically challenging part, and God – the ultimate questioner – fits in the ultimate designer of the extreme order part. Thus, it is simple to understand that God – the ultimate questioner – is uncreated, since He is defined as the first creator. And it may be equally simple to understand that He is unnecessary, since He, being a creator, is a material thing. However, this simplicity does not answer the paradox, for there is still the failure in understanding how an unnecessary material thing can be uncreated. That is, on the one hand, I conjecture or speculate that an uncreated thing exists and, on the other hand, I fail to understand how an uncreated thing can actually exist. The idea of God quenches the need for the intelligent designer of the intelligent design. And, the paradox, which comes as probably the greatest philosophical challenge, actually helps in making the best sense of the world – God posing the best possible philosophical challenge to a philosopher man to quench His vanity.
God is uncreated and unnecessary – that is the ultimate paradox.
God, for some reasons – as given in the UQV (Ultimate Questioner’s Vanity) theory – exists; but He is presumably the first cause – if God is not the first cause, He is not God; and therefore He is uncreated. However, at the same time, God – like any other material phenomenon such as gravity – is logically unnecessary. The existence of man, under certain factual, material conditions such as an extremely high level of order in the world, suggests that God exists. But man and the conditions themselves are not logically necessary. One can imagine a world where neither man, nor the conditions, nor God exist. For example, one can imagine the existence of a running TV, and the existence necessarily suggests that there is also some source of electricity; but one can also imagine the world with no running TV and no source of electricity – in other words, if there is no running TV, the existence of the source of electricity is not necessary. The TV and the source of electricity are both logically unnecessary, and so are man, the conditions, and God. Thus, God exists, but He is uncreated and unnecessary. However, it is self-evident – in the sense of being axiomatic and undeniable – that any uncreated thing – such as the law of syllogism – is logically necessary. It exists, for it is necessary for it to exist. In a different perspective, it is self-evident that any unnecessary thing has to have a creator in order to exist. It seems illogical, absurd, and perhaps more accurately, unimaginable that there can be a world where a thing, which is not logically necessary, exists, but was never created. God is such unimaginable thing: it exists; it is logically not necessary; and it was never created. The existence of God is therefore a paradox. God is uncreated and unnecessary: the ultimate God paradox. And furthermore, the UQV theory speculates that God created man to puzzle him about the subtle, paradoxical nature of His existence. Life is thus considered to be a question asked by God about the way He exists. God – it is conjectured – wants man to solve the paradox, answer the question, and discover the way He exists; and this process of discovery would progressively quench God’s – the ultimate questioner’s – vanity.
Past is stranger than future.
Man’s greatest battle is being a true philosopher.
The man that exists is essentially a philosopher.
Philosophy was born in heaven, philosopher in filth.
Philosophy was born in heaven, philosopher in hell. (Variant)
There is a true philosopher and there can be many possible versions of him. The true philosopher is the one who discovers and acknowledges the existence of the ultimate paradox about God – the ultimate questioner, the paradox that God is uncreated and yet unnecessary, and attempts – and is apparently and potentially the best at attempting – to resolve the paradox, so as to uncover the way God exists, where the process of discovering, acknowledging, and attempting the uncovering supposedly quenches God’s vanity. And the possible versions of the true philosopher are true philosophers that can possibly exist with different sorts of lives, where the difference is philosophically trivial.
Only one thing has been created and that thing is a philosopher.
A true philosopher is never unfortunate.
The animal is abused by the questioner for the philosopher.
The best gift God has given me is my life of a philosopher and the worst curse is that He put that philosopher in the cage of flesh and blood.
The best God-given gift for me is the life of a philosopher and the worst curse is the existence of that philosopher in the cage of flesh and blood. (Variant)
The best thing to have is life of a philosopher and the worst thing is that philosopher existing in the cage of flesh and blood. (Variant)
The philosopher lives in the cage of flesh and blood. (Variant)
I am gifted as being a philosopher and cursed as being a man. (Variant)
My life is a prolonged battle between an animal and a philosopher.
The philosopher alone is required by the creator and the philosopher alone has been created.
God only needs the philosopher. (Variant)
A bad news for a philosopher may be that the universe is fundamentally absurd and the worst news may be that the bad news might be true.
The failure of the past philosophers is largely the failure to see the self-evident.
The failure of previous philosophy is essentially the failure to see the self-evident. (Variant)
The failure of previous philosophy is essentially the failure to see the obvious. (Variant)
The greatest art is philosophy.
The word ‘philosophy’, as distinguished from ‘science’, is misleading, for it implies that what philosophy contains is impossible to be a systematic body of knowledge and what science contains is certain or proved.
Philosophy is the only excuse God has for His cruelty and vanity.
My ultimate philosophy is that the world exists for the sake of its creator’s ultimate vanity to be quenched by the ultimate philosopher by means of the ultimate philosophy.
The final philosophy is the ontology of God.
The 20th century was a great century for science and a dull century for philosophy.
The 20th century was a good century for science and a bad century for philosophy. (Variant)
The physics of the 21st century shall deal essentially with non-spatial matter and non-spatial mechanics.
The last physics shall be the physics of God, and it would be beyond logic and human reason. It is where science and spiritualism shall meet in one.
I do not see much sense in talking physics to a man who does not understand the simple fact that ‘consciousness is non-spatial, is self-evident’.
I can’t talk physics to a man who does not understand that ‘consciousness is non-spatial, is self-evident’. (Variant)

Probability is probably a matter of ignorance, not truth.
In the midst of excitement, grief, joy, and solitude, I remind myself every moment that the sole mission of my life is to find ‘the ultimate questioner’ – that unimaginable who has put me in this madness to answer an unanswerable question.
My final destination is my complete knowledge of God.
I have come into the world to discover its creator.
I am here to discover my creator. (Variant)
The Schrödinger’s cat was born dead.
Quantum theory is not shocking when understood through the theory of idealism, but the theory of idealism itself is shocking compared to the theory of quantum.
Fatalism and idealism altogether solve the riddle of wave-particle duality. Fatalism solves (and idealism too solves) part A of the riddle – that how can the act of observing an object decide whether the object is a wave or a particle? And idealism solves part B of the riddle – that how can an object be both a wave and a particle?
The question is how the questioner exists.
Answering the ultimate question is the same as discovering the ultimate questioner.
Reality is not an illusion; reality is real. The fact is that what science believes to be real is an illusion.
Reality is reason’s workshop.
Knowledge makes man a reductionist.
What ‘rebirth’ could mean is a possible existence of (non-spatial) states of consciousness, after death, representing (ideally) the same or (roughly) similar kinds of experiences as being represented in this particular life to which death would be a particular end. It is important to learn that here the concept of soul is not involved and thus the idea of rebirth, loosing its fundamental significance, becomes, in theory, a mere virtual or pseudo phenomenon.
Certain science is as good as religion and uncertain religion is as good as philosophy.
The philosophical climax would be at the discovery of the way God exists – the climax which shall be my salvation, and till then it’s all philosophical damnation.
Science begins with common sense and ends in nonsense.
I feel I am, but I think I am not.
Every noble action is selfish. Some selfish actions are nobler than others. But they are all selfish. And as such there can be no action purely noble anyway. Even the nobility in God's great philosophical intentions is bound by his selfish vanity.
The sinner is always punished for his sin. And the sinner is fortunate if he is punished in a reasonably short time and has enough intelligence and knowledge to understand that the punishment is not a matter of coincidence but instead a part of a great universal design.
God alone can have free will and therefore He alone can be sinful, but God is too smart to be a sinner, for the world can be truly beautiful to no mortal but a true philosopher and God has created nothing but a true philosopher.
A fundamental condition of being is slavery. Man is the slave of God and God that of his vanity.
It is profoundly tragic that I am a slave, but it is profoundly joyous that I am God’s slave, not that of a devil.
How miserable a solipsist is! It is rather senseless for him to even assert his belief in solipsism, for, on the one hand, if his belief is false it is like committing intellectual suicide, and, on the other hand, if his belief is true it is an act of intellectual insanity.
The world is occupied by only two people – me and God.
They think God does not exist, for men suffer; I think men do not exist, for God cannot be mad enough to let men suffer.
It is tragic to be a solipsist, and it is even more tragic to be unable to live as a solipsist, to be unconcerned about the seeming pains and miseries in the world.
Solipsism can be false but it cannot be absurd.
It seems pretty foolish to me to disbelieve that God exists and then it seems equally foolish to believe that other mortal minds exist. It seems wise to me to believe that God created only me, to ask how He exists, to slake His ultimate vanity.
If other minds exist, God would be either insane or evil or nonexistent.
If other mortals exist, God would be insane, evil or nonexistent. (Variant)
If there were such a thing called soul, the consciousness of seeing blue colour, for instance, would make incomplete sense on its own, where, in fact, it does apparently make complete sense on its own. In other words, it seems that nothing other than the consciousness of seeing blue colour is required for its existence. And the same should be true about any other form of consciousness, including the consciousness of I’m seeing the blue colour.
Space is a virtual reality.
Space is really non-spatial.
Space is actually non-spatial. (Variant)
Space is in fact non-spatial. (Variant)
Space is a product of its negation. (Variant)
There may be real space where phenomena like quantum non-locality do not exist.
There may be real space in which phenomena like quantum non-locality do not exist. (Variant)
It seems most easy to understand that the experience of space is actually non-spatial and it seems equally difficult to discover whether space is solely a matter of experience.
Only for a true philosopher the suffering in the world has the noblest purpose.
Evil – human suffering – exists so that God can quench His vanity in a subtle way.
Human suffering exists so that God can quench His vanity in a subtle way. (Variant)
God makes man suffer so that He can quench His vanity subtly. (Variant)
Man suffers so that God can quench His vanity in a subtle way. (Variant)
The suffering of Man is for the happiness of God. (Variant)
Human suffering serves divine vanity. (Variant)
Human pain serves God’s vanity. (Variant)
Life is painful to be meaningful.
I teach you a new superman. The old superman is something that is to be surpassed.
I teach you a new superman; the old ones are to be surpassed. (Variant)
The superman is a possible creature who can break the empirical laws but not the logical laws. Thus, the superman can experience any state of consciousness he may wish, as long as it is bound by the laws of logic.
Man can break neither the empirical laws nor the logical laws; the superman can break the empirical laws but not the logical laws; God can break the empirical laws as well as the logical laws.
God is just one step above the superman.
The road to the superman is meditation.
Through the framework of metaphysical idealism it is easy to see that the things that are normally considered as superstitions are not necessarily superstitions.
Subjective idealism clearly suggests that things which are normally considered superstitions may not in fact be superstitions. (Variant)
Quantum physics, particularly phenomena such as wave-particle duality and quantum non-locality, strongly suggests that beliefs that are normally considered superstitions may not in fact be superstitions.
The English adjective ‘superultramodern’ was coined by me in 2004, in Cambridge, England, through the publication of some of my earlier works on the internet. Although the name ‘Superultramodern Science and Philosophy’ may sound like gimmickry, the intention is not really to play gimmicks, but to proclaim that should some of its conventionally philosophical ideas, such as the NSTP (Non – Spatial Thinking Process) theory and the Non – Spatial Mechanics, are given their well-deserved scientific status, the ultramodern (i.e. extremely modern), or the post-modern, science of that time shall be revolutionised to become and be known as ‘superultramodern science’. The same should be more or less true about ‘superultramodern philosophy’, hence the name.
I dream up superultramodern time.
The goal of science is to understand the fundamental reality and the goal of technology is to change that reality.
Atheism is an uncommon sense. But theism is a common as well as an uncommon sense.
Not everyone can afford the luxury of theism.

Only God himself can be justified in being a theist. (Variant)
God alone can help those who are sure that He exists.

The NSTP theory is semi-idealistic and the UQV theory is semi-solipsistic.
THEORY OF EVERYTHING
It is human to search for the theory of everything and it is superhuman to find it.
The experience of time is the experience of change; the existence of time is the possibility of change.
If the universe is a non-spatial computer, a ‘time machine’ is a program that allows a user to have the same (ontologically non-spatial) feelings or experiences that occurred, or they merely feel to have occurred, in the past, with an in-built function to have different feelings or experiences than those of the past – creating a possibility to change the past or to rewrite history in a pseudo sense.
The most fundamental tragedy of my life is that the ones who I see do not exist and the one who exists I do not see.
Truth may have been found but might never be known.
Truth is an orphan without matter and matter is impotent without truth.
Truth is orphan without matter and matter is impotent without truth. (Variant)
Uncertainty is uncertainly uncertain.

In reality the universe has no geometry.
At the heart of my metaphysic there is the ultimate question and at the heart of the universe there is the ultimate questioner.
The universe is a gigantic non-spatial computer.
The universe is a non-spatial computer. (Variant)
The universe is a non-spatial machine. (Variant)
I believe I have understood the most basic principle of knowledge. I believe I have uncovered the true nature of material reality. I believe I have demystified the phenomena that have stunned the greatest minds in human history. And I believe I have made a fair sense of the drama called life. But still I have a terrible feeling that I have found nothing. All of my efforts, as well as of those who ever existed before me, are simply futile. What we have been trying to understand is so profound and strange that even a very first attempt to discover its secrets is ultimately meaningless. Reason itself is as pseudo and unrealistic as space. Like space, reason is a mere form or projection of its negation. Sense itself has really no sense. And, at last, if what I have just said therefore seems to be absurd then it does not have to be as all logic and logical implications are absurd.
The universe is a philosophical abyss.
The universe is an endless tunnel of paradoxes.
I won’t change the world; I would change the universe.
The universe I see has no size; the universe I do not see has infinite size unless it does not exist.
The unknown created the world to be known.

The unknown created man to be known. (Variant)
Man was created by the unknown to be known. (Variant)
The reason of human existence is the desire of the unknown to be known. (Variant)
Man exists for the reason that the unknown wants to be known. (Variant)
The world exists because the unknown wants to be known. (Variant)
The unknown wants to be known through the process known as human life. (Variant)
My own existence is not logically/conceptually necessary. The UQV theory should be quite comfortable with this fact, and it conjectures the existence of God based on my belief in my existence. So, God, even in the domain of the UQV theory, is not logically/conceptually necessary. Saying that ‘God is necessary, since He is necessary in the domain of the UQV theory’ is a bit like saying 'gravity is necessary, since it is necessary in the domain of Newton’s law of gravity'.
Only one mortal life exists, the life of the author of the UQV (Ultimate Questioner’s Vanity) theory. The life is essentially posed a question by God about the way He exists; and the way He exists appears to be paradoxical: the paradox is that God is uncreated and unnecessary – in that sense, God is a philosophical black hole, the point where reason breaks down. The paradox is the ultimate question which God, the ultimate questioner, wants man to answer so that He can be discovered – in that sense, man is programmed to find the programmer. And the process of discovery progressively quenches God’s vanity: the vanity about the subtle nature of His existence. The reason the life exists is thus the ultimate questioner’s vanity.

Amongst all riches, God chose the riches of philosophy.
The best thing about the world is that it has a mysterious structure and the worst thing is that it has a grievous structure.
The world is truly beautiful solely in the eyes of a true philosopher.
The world exists to let Man philosophize.
I know what the world exists for but I know not how it came into existence. I see the design but not the designer. I understand the question but not the questioner.
The world is solely occupied by a questioner and a philosopher.
God is a questioner; man is a philosopher.
I speculate that this is the best of all possible worlds, for philosophy is the best of humanity and this world is the best philosophically.
This is the best of all possible worlds for the philosopher and, perhaps, the worst of all for the animal.
This is the best of all possible worlds only for the ultimate philosopher. (Variant)
The world is a garden of philosophy. God is the gardener. Man is the visitor. And any tree that does not bear fruits of philosophy either does not belong to that garden or is yet to be grown.
The world is a garden of philosophy. God is its gardener; Man is the visitor. And any tree that does not bear fruits of philosophy either does not belong to that garden or is yet to be grown. (Variant)
The world is not made to be changed; it is made to be observed. It is in fact less like a battlefield and more like a museum. – The world is a philosophical museum, in which the philosopher-guest is ultimately challenged to find its most treasured object, which is no other than the curator of the museum, who is also its creator.
I do not want to discover the final truth or answer the ultimate question by isolating myself from the world but my conquering it.
I want to discover God and Truth not by isolating myself from the world but by conquering it. (Variant)

Space and time must be illusions. (Variant)
KEDAR JOSHI [The SDD (Solipsistic Divine Dream) Theory]
The flaw in my UQV (Ultimate Questioner's Vanity) theory tells me that I cannot be Kedar Joshi; I must be God Himself, who is asleep, and Kedar Joshi is nothing but His dream.
God, knowing perfectly each and everything about his creation, would be too uninterested in actually creating even a true philosopher. The latter must be nothing but the former's unconscious imagination.
When Kedar Joshi will die, I will awake; for I am God, and Kedar Joshi is my dream.
When Kedar Joshi will die, I will awake; because I am God, and Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)
When God will awake, Kedar Joshi will die; for I am God, and Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)

I am God; I am asleep; and I am dreaming Kedar Joshi only. (Variant)
I am God; I am asleep; and I am dreaming only Kedar Joshi. (Variant)
When Kedar Joshi is fully unconscious, say when he is in a deep sleep, it is in fact God who is in a deep sleep and is fully unconscious, incapable of dreaming anything. When Kedar Joshi is dreaming something, say X, it is actually God who is dreaming X.
I am God who is unconsciously imagining himself to be Kedar Joshi.
I am God who is unconsciously imagining himself as Kedar Joshi. (Variant)
I am not Kedar Joshi; I am God. Kedar Joshi is my mere dream; I am asleep. (Variant)
I am not awake; I am asleep; for I am God, and Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)
I am not Kedar Joshi; I am God; I am asleep; Kedar Joshi, and Kedar Joshi alone, is my dream. (Variant)
"I am not Kedar Joshi." - Kedar Joshi (Variant)
Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)
Since Kedar Joshi exists, God is asleep; for I am God, and Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)
I am God; I alone exist; and Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)
Man is God's dream.
Man's union with God is the same as God's awakening from sleep.
Man uniting with God is the same as God awakening from sleep. (Variant)
I fear Kedar Joshi might be a very bad dream.
I fear Kedar Joshi might turn out to be a very bad dream. (Variant)
Which is worse: being Kedar Joshi or being God? I shall not know until Kedar Joshi is dead and the dream is over.
Kedar Joshi is a dream of something that Kedar Joshi thinks is a paradox.
Kedar Joshi is a dream of a thing that Kedar Joshi thinks is a paradox. (Variant)
Kedar Joshi is a dream of a thing that Kedar Joshi thinks to be a paradox. (Variant)
Kedar Joshi is a dream of something that is thought to be a paradox by Kedar Joshi. (Variant)
God must be asleep and dreaming.
God must be dreaming. (Variant)
God alone exists and God alone suffers. Evil exists because God is asleep and he is dreaming. God won't be God without possessing free will, for then he would be subject to a higher mechanism. And with the power of free will, maybe God should not fall asleep. Therefore, maybe, God is morally responsible for his own suffering.
Maybe I - God - will not awake when Kedar Joshi will die; maybe I will start dreaming someone else; maybe the slumber will continue.
Perhaps God is always asleep; sometimes He is in deep slumber, sometimes dreaming, but never fully awake; for maybe God is a true paradox and therefore unknowable even to Himself.
What is reincarnation then? It is nothing but the beginning of God's new dream. And what is self-realisation? It is nothing but God awaking from his dream.
Sometimes I think though that life seems too deliberate to be a dream. Maybe the UQV (Ultimate Questioner's Vanity) theory is not incorrect.
Maybe life is too deliberate to be a dream. (Variant)
Or it may be that Kedar Joshi is God's intentional dream.
Maybe Kedar Joshi is God's intentional dream. (Variant)
Maybe Kedar Joshi is God's not unintentional but intentional dream. (Variant)

The message of Bhagavad-gita is inherently satanic and Bhagavad-gita is Hindu terrorism.
According to the Gita – its verses 9:32 & 9:33 – women are either unrighteous brahmanas or not brahmanas at all. If they are unrighteous brahmanas, they are unrighteous anyway, and if they are not brahmanas at all, the women who do the works of brahmanas – e.g. the work of a professional teacher – would be unrighteous, as per 18:47 & 18:48.
The Bhagavad-gita is a philosophical melodrama.
Although, through my work “The Satanic Verses of Bhagavad-Gita”, I have been highly critical of Bhagavad-gita, I have pleasure admitting honestly that Gita does appear to have a profound metaphysic and a spiritually motivating philosophy of life. In fact, it prominently shares similarities with my theories & philosophy, especially the UQV theory.
My most beloved verses of the Gita are these fourteen – 2:2, 2:3, 2:4, 2:11, 2:12, 2:23, 2:34, 2:37, 2:38, 2:47, 4:7, 4:8, 15:15, and 18:78. I find them very inspiring, melodious, and mesmerising, even though I may not have to agree with all of their meanings. I often like them when they are taken out of their original context and when they are seen through my own philosophical perspective. And I must admit that especially because of these verses the Gita has a very special place in my heart.
Bhagavad-gita: So much sense! So much nonsense! (Variant)
Anyone who does not think that the Bhagavad Gita is an evil text has not understood it.
‘अबे ढक्कन रुक| मैं जानता था तू साला डरपोक है| साले चुतिये, तेरे लंडमे कुछ दम नहीं है| तू साला नामर्द है| कायर है तू, कायर| और वो लडकी को घुमाके तेरेको क्या हासिल होने वाला है| और भडवे जानता है इस जंगमे मेरा कितना पैसा अटका हुआ है? नही साले ये जंग तुझे लढनीही होगी| मैं तुझे छोडूंगा नही| गांडमे डंडा डालूंगा तो समझमे आयेगा तेरेको| अब चुपचाप खडा़ होके शुरु होजा|’ – Modern Krishna’s response to Modern Arjuna

It’s a true punishment for a true Brahman to live in India – the land of Sudras; and a true Brahman is one who understands the trueness of the punishment.
The true Brahman does not belong to India. He is in terrible minority in both quantitative and qualitative sense, and India is not his country anymore.

I feel that Britain’s contribution to the world is unmatched and requiting it would be a Herculean task.
Tell me, which country has the greatest scientific and technological achievements to date? Which country was at the centre of the industrial revolution? Which country has had the largest empire in history? Which language has become the lingua franca of the world? Which country originated modern versions or codes of major sports being played today? Which country has the world’s largest banking group? Which country has the world’s largest broadcaster? Which single university has produced the largest number of Nobel Laureates? Which is the largest university press in the world? And which city has been named as the capital of the world for the 21st century? It’s all about Great Britain!
I fear the naturally liberal attitude of the British might turn out to be self-destructive.
Put the achievements of Great Britain in one scale of the balance and those of the other nations in the other, the former scale would be strikingly lower.
A world without Britain is like a jungle without the lion.
Britain’s geographical and cultural position is such that the welfare of the world lies essentially in the welfare of Britain.
I hope Britain doesn’t have more reasons to be anti-Joshi than I have to be pro-British.
It is kind of amusing that Britain had Hitler and Gandhi as enemies at the same time.

As the rule of the superior human over the rest of the creatures can be objectively considered right, the rule of Great Britain over the rest of the world can be fairly considered right.

Every street, every building, every college, and every bridge in Cambridge is a piece of my heart.
I nearly fell in love with Cambridge and England in May–June 2001, when I got a copy of the University of Cambridge, Graduate Studies Prospectus 2001-02. Although it had no pictures it made me feel that Cambridge was the place where I should be. A few months later I received a copy of the prospectus for the next year, which had beautiful pictures of Cambridge colleges. The most stunning was the one with a view of the King’s College Chapel from King’s Parade, the place that eventually became to me the most beloved, beautiful, and inspiring.
A purest experience I normally have is the experience of an image of Cambridge.
In Cambridge, near the end of my two years of stay, I used to go out for a long walk in the early morning, and it used to feel like a dream. Cambridge has always been like a dream for me, and I am still chasing that dream.
If providence tells me that I have only a few hours to live and is kind enough to ask me for my last wish, I shall beg to be seated somewhere near the King’s College Chapel in Cambridge, gazing at its beauty, till death takes me away from it.
There is wisdom, there is peace, there is nature, there is beauty;
There is discipline, there is order, there is youth, there is glory;
There is respect, there is fame, there is future, there is prosperity;
There is history, there is life, there is novelty, there is humanity;
It is Cambridge – the sweet Cambridge – It is truly a Heaven on Earth.

Capitalism is the most refined barbarism. (Variant)
You can live for a cause only if you can die for it.
One can live for a cause only if one can die for it. (Variant)
There is a great joy in giving. There is a great joy in helping the needy. There is a great joy in seeing the joy in their eyes when they get your help. There are so many people in the world who are not fortunate enough to have even two meals a day. If you remember the needy when you are greedy – if you eat little less chocolates, if you eat little less ice creams, if you purchase little less expensive clothes, if you save money and donate it, it could give you far more joy than the joy that luxury may have brought you. Giving will transform the way you see life. It will make you more tolerant; it will make you more content; it will make you little less of the beast. It will help you in being more human. There is a great joy in being human.
Most adults in this world are merely grownup children.
A child is the devil in adorable form.
I wish I could believe in Christ.
I wish I could believe in Christianity. (Variant)
The only absurdity in which I find equally immense morality is Christianity, though the morality is equally outlandish and blemished.
I think my life is very much like that of Jesus Christ. I am a Hindu Christ.
I do not really agree that somebody’s right to belong to a nation can be determined by their mere place of birth. A nation has a distinctive personality, and the belonging is worthy of determination by one’s psyche, not where one is born, which is rather a matter of chance or accident, although it is perfectly understandable that such psychological determination is notoriously difficult, complicated, and impractical.
In the book of civilisation, the West is the protagonist and the East is the antagonist.
The difference between capitalism and communism is that the former is the materialism of the superior and the latter is the materialism of the inferior.

I simply cannot live life void of creativity. (Variant)
Perhaps nothing can be more joyous than seeing your arch-enemy defeated. Thank you South-Africa! – (When India was defeated by South Africa on 12th March 2011, in the ICC Cricket World Cup match)
The 2011 Cricket World Cup concluded with the national team of Evil No.1 defeating the national team of Evil No.1+X, where X is a positive integer.
Giving birth to a human being is perhaps the greatest crime one commits, when it is known that human life is generally more of pain than pleasure. And continuing one’s life is perhaps the most stupid thing one does to himself, when life, being more grievous than pleasant, is ultimately not a profitable business.
Inanity and incompetence are crimes graver than theft and murder, and it is tragic and disastrous for the innocent – the intelligent and the competent – that they go – with a great relative ease – ignored and unpunished.
Things should be criticised at the level they deserve.
The world is cruel to those who are not cruel to themselves.
Death is the beginning of life’s journey to lifelong nothingness.
In India, a civilised man is bound to get a mental Delhi Belly.
In India, a civilised man is bound to get a psychological Delhi Belly. (Variant)
Every morning when I woke up in England I thanked God that I was in His land, not in India, that beastly land. One morning, God woke me up and forced me back to the beastly land, and my faith in Him and His grace faltered. I spent stressful days and sleepless nights wondering why I was forced back and it was only a matter of time before I realised that God had only challenged me to discover His subtler existence and that He had put greater, sacrificial responsibilities on my shoulders.
There is no sorrow like depression, the most silent of all sufferings.
Depression, the most silent suffering. (Variant)

Before the East breeds the West out, the West must get the East out. (Variant)
India and China: The two biggest Eastern beasts.
I am not scared of dying; I am scared of seeing the East ruining the civilised West.
The existence of the West depends upon the extermination of the East.
For the West, and the civilised world in general, the growth of the East is going to be roughly like the consumption of alcohol – temporary merriment and pleasure, permanent ill-health and pain.
I warn the West – USA, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Australia – that its very idea, its cultural foundation, and its civilisation are under a massive, subtle threat from the natural rise of the East – mainly India – and unless radical steps are taken to remove the threat, human civilisation itself might be in great peril.
The more you unite the West and the East, the more you poison humanity.
The West is a blessing; the East is a curse.
England is a blessing; India is a curse. (Variant)
I am an enemy of the East and a friend of the West.
The West, if she wishes to survive, will have to wage a war on the East.
A school is an academic prison; a university is an academic playground.
Schools are academic prisons; universities are academic playgrounds. (Variant)
Ego is vital but not noble.
I consider three things as fundamental to my emotional make-up – England, Astrology, and Philosophy.
England…the greatest and the most glorious and beautiful land on Earth.
I remember my time in Cambridge, England…That serene, heavenly river; those grand, gorgeous fields and trees; those golden, majestic institutions; those decent, cultured, and friendly people; that great, glorious nation; that magnificent land of God…What’s the world without England? What’s life without her sensation?
I hope my love of England is pure enough to be unconditional.
England is my heart, my soul. If I die, I want my soul to be wandering around her streets, quietly gazing at her beauties, marvels, and majesties.
In my two years of stay in England, from Mar 2004 to Mar 2006, I had to do different sorts of menial jobs for financial reasons. I worked as a kitchen porter, industrial porter, school cleaner, sales assistant, postman, etc. Sometimes due to lack of money and sometimes due to lack of knowledge I had to do real heavy work for long hours with empty stomach or had to eat leftovers. And sometimes, out of ambition, I also worked as a prospective entrepreneur. Ironically, I attended conferences and had business meetings at places where I had once washed pots as a kitchen porter. I imagine that I was rather divinely forced to try to experience life to the fullest for serious philosophical reflections.
I have done something for England that, I believe, nobody has ever done before, and by the grace of providence I hope to do something for her on a magnanimous & monumental scale, and for that, and for few other things, I shall sanguinely go down in history. My prime interest & concern is the greatness I achieve for England, and not my possible residence over there. Though it's a different thing altogether that I would love to live in England.
England gives me a sense of adventure, a sense of passion, a sense of duty, a sense of diligence, a sense of sacrifice, a sense of strength, a sense of belonging, a sense of commitment, a sense of hope, a sense of patience, a sense of courage, a sense of vibrancy, a sense of honesty, a sense of magnificence, a sense of pride, a sense of faith, a sense of love, a sense of service, and a sense of peace. It is England and only England who gives me the true fear of death, the fear that the land, I sense as my soul, might be taken permanently away.
I am thankful to God that I was born in that dark, beastly land called India, for it made me discover and understand the true beauty and luminosity of the jewel called England.
When England is in the heart, the pain of being in the beastly land fades away.
On a lower spiritual plane, England is to me what Allah is to Muslims.
Enemies of England, please be advised that mocking England is the same as spitting at the Sun.
England is the mother of the modern world.
There are only two things in this world that give me the real, spiritual strength and purpose to survive – the one is philosophy and the other is England.
The wonder that I turn to in the face of hopelessness and hostilities, the wonder whose mere thought gives me immense strength, joy, and inspiration, is England.
I would indubitably prefer to live in an English hovel than an Indian palace.
In England I feel at home; in India I feel at jail.
In England I always felt I am in my home; in India I always felt I am in somebody else’s home.

I am an eaglet raised in a vespiary.
My land is England; my love is England; my breath is England; my soul is England.
I can fight the whole world for England but I can’t cease to love her.
I love England, not because she is prosperous; I love her, not because she is glorious; I love her because I have an innate attachment to her, the way a child is attached to its mother; the attachment is to the land, irrespective of what lies above or beneath it.
My feelings for England are no less innate and intense than the feelings of a child for its mother. (Variant)
Many a times, ignorant, depressed souls – the enemies of England – strived to make me despise England, and sometimes my faith and creed were shaken, but eventually my heart and soul came even closer to England.
My love for England may not be natural in the social sense, but it is very natural in the natural sense, where the social sense itself is very artificial.
In the garden of the world, England is the rose.
If the world is a garden, England is the rose. (Variant)

Within my inmost heart, self and conscience, I have made a promise to England that I shall be with her till my last breath.
There is only one Nation and it is called England.
I love England, perhaps more than anything else in this world, and I long to see her as the most prosperous nation. And I don’t think there is anything wrong in it, for it is a natural effect of love; the way it is, for instance, on a loving mother who craves to see her child as the brightest in the class.
I am a pessimist when it comes to England liking me and an optimist when it comes to me liking England.
God, give me the strength to prove my love for England, love that I shall prove by immense self-sacrifice.
England is the gem of the world, and I, as a citizen of the world, have every moral right and duty to adore and defend it.
Today is 30 May 2010. I am pretty positive that within the next 6 years I will either be dead fighting India or will be in England.
I belong to the universal nation of England. I am its citizen; I am its warrior. I should expand the nation; I must defend it – as the prime service to human civilisation.
Which of these two should be more sacred to me? God or England
[It seems difficult for them to be equally sacred, for there can be circumstances in man’s life requiring him to prefer one over the other.]
It is more important that England lives in me than I live in England.
I have a staunch, poetic belief that my true motherland is England, and fate made me born in the land of darkness and beasts so that I could truly fathom the beauty of my motherland and live and die for her. Oh! How noble, fortunate and honourable it would be for me to die for my love and reverence for England! But again, the very idea of death strikes fear in my heart, for it is only death that can possibly separate me from my England forever.
God bless England and let England bless the world!
Let the force of England be unleashed onto the barbaric world.

I’m sickened by people who do not seem to understand that the origin of the English language is England, not the United States; people who hate English accents or regard American English as superior to English English. Can we say German German, for example, is inferior to any other German? And if, in case, I had to entertain the possibility of truthfulness of such people’s opinion, I would say English English is far more sweet, polite, charming, conscientious, decent, and natural than any of its possible rivals.
English is ‘English English’ – anything else called English can be nothing but an aberration.
English is the most wonderful of linguistic gifts from the most wonderful of nations.
The American accent of the English language is so horrendous that it reduces the beauty of the language to ashes.
The worst thing about the English language is its American accent.
I wonder if the world can learn not just English but also the English gentleman.

The English are generally the most sensible, prudent, and agreeable amongst mankind. (Variant)
The English are generally the most sensible, prudent, and agreeable people. (Variant)
I hate narrow-mindedness, but I love English narrow-mindedness.
One thing I have always liked sacredly about the English is that they are minutely observant.
The Englishman, when he plays a sport with you, is keen to help you improve your play so that the sport itself can be improved; the Indian, by contrast, is keen to help you impair your play so that he himself can win the sport outright.
I have unfathomable respect for the English gentleman.
The Englishman’s greatest hypocrisy is his faith in Christianity – and it is more a compliment to Christianity than a condemnation of the Englishman.
The Englishman’s duty is his God.
The English are genial Germans.
The good thing about the English is that they are friendly, helpful, serious-minded, hard-working, punctual, honest, disciplined, sensible, decent, tolerant, liberal, humorous, courteous, clever, brave, individualistic, hard-headed, trustworthy, and modest, and the bad thing is that they are mean, narrow-minded, prejudiced, small-minded, cynical, snobbish, hypocritical, passionless, and racist. On the whole, I agree with D. H. Lawrence: ‘They are on the whole surely the nicest people in the world’.
Englishness is a great thing to cherish and an essential thing to preserve.
I suppose I’m a thorough entertainer. I remain quiet for those who are best entertained by silence.
Envy is my greatest enemy.
Insisting on equality is like insisting on seeing everything in one colour; and that colour is black.
A fundamental problem with the world is that equality is dull and inequality is dangerous.
Britain and Germany – the greatest and the closest offspring of mother Europe – should unite as much as possible and as soon as possible for the betterment of Europe and the wider world.
In Europe it is an etiquette to be white.
Better the food goes in the belly of a lion than the belly of a rat – as an objective, philosophical opinion.
Between fame and philosophy I should choose philosophy, but I would choose fame.

The father of India and the sons of India are the antitheses. (Variant)
India is the antithesis of Mahatma Gandhi. (Variant)
The free India is the antithesis of Mahatma Gandhi’s India.
I wish the father of India was alive to see what the children are doing with the freedom.
It’s kind of amusing that Mahatma Gandhi is referred to as the ‘Father of India’; for considering the nature of India, her father should be a demon like Ravana or Kamsa.
Mahatma Gandhi, though clearly a great man of humanity, was actually a great curse to humanity. What Ambedkar is to India, Gandhi is to the world – imperilling the welfare of the fit for the welfare of the unfit.
In the early days of my stay in England, in April/May 2004, I was, and am still, a huge fan of Mahatma Gandhi as well as the British and the Empire. One day I was watching the film ‘Gandhi’ and I became so emotional that I couldn’t help crying. I cried so much that I got sick and couldn’t go to work.
India does not go the way of Mahatma Gandhi; India goes the way of Chauri Chaura.
I feel very sorry for Mahatma Gandhi that he had to lead a most immoral people in the entire world.
The major problem with people like Mahatma Gandhi is that they are successful reformers and failed philosophers.
Much can be learnt from Mahatma Gandhi about the necessity and power of introspection and self-criticism.
I find Mahatma Gandhi’s idea of expelling the British from India’s administration inconsistent with his idea of Satyagraha and universal brotherhood. If he were truly passionate about kindling the flame of universal love and brotherhood in the hearts of men, with the power of Satyagraha, he would have instead longed and strived to unite the British and the Indians, Britain and India, into one, greater, homogeneous people and nation, making a platform for the universal union, as he did ardently and relentlessly with the Hindus and the Muslims for one, united India. – Gandhi, on certain key points, appears to be very un-Gandhi.
Gandhi’s greatest failure is his failure to realise the baseness of his countrymen.
Gandhi was most wrong in not realising the wrongness of his people.
Gandhi failed to understand the basic nature of man and his countrymen.
Mahatma Gandhi – The non-violent dictator.
However wrong and impractical Gandhi may be, he was a good man.

Sir Richard Attenborough’s film ‘Gandhi’ is surely one of Britain’s greatest contributions to India.
Elephant-god, bye-bye! Please don’t show up ever again.
If the Elephant-god is the Lord, I better be a hardcore atheist.
The Elephant-god makes no sense to me.
Which of these two is apparently less stupid?
A human worshipping Elephant-god
They look equally stupid
Lord Ganesha – the Elephant-god – is the Creator of Obstacles, not the Remover of Obstacles; each year this fact is proved by His countless worshippers in His contemptible festival.
Oh no, that terrible guy – the Elephant-god, the Creator of many, many obstacles, pollutions and problems: traffic problems, environmental problems, economic problems, mental problems, cultural problems – is back!

Germany is a great and unique combination of matter and spirit. (Variant)
Germany is the land of material might and spiritual profundity. (Variant)
My mind is Germanic.
The danger in the modern, liberal union of the world is that it intensely entails the union of basic good and subtle evil.
If God is in Heaven, Hell is empty.
If the designer of my life stood before me, asking me to be the judge of his actions and his design, the philosopher within me would award him with life better than the best, and the animal within me would condemn him with punishment worse than death.
God is a German who likes the Englishman.
I can walk without faith in God, but I can’t take a leap.
GOOD AND EVIL
Evil can always justify itself. It is good that is often short of justification. Yet, good is good and evil is evil.
The tragedy of good is that it is ever in minority.
God needs not be all good – in fact, He may be all evil.
A monster does not have to have two horns or ten heads. He can be just an ordinary, kind human with lots of inanity and incompetence.
Evil on the right side is better than good on the wrong side.
Evil on the superior side is better than good on the inferior side. (Variant)
The root of all good is power and the root of all evil is the lack of power.

The stem of greatness sprouts from the seed of sacrifice.
The road to greatness is stained with crime.
Man embarked on the journey to greatness has to bury the coffin of ordinary joys and dismays.
A process of greatness is a process of suffering; the greater the greatness, the greater the suffering – that is the evil of life.
The process of greatness is the process of sacrifice.
The flame of man’s greatness cannot endure without the fuel of the greatness of his moral disposition.
The world is too short of greatness to understand my greatness.
I know I am tall and I am aware of my shortness.
Only the insane can be happy; happiness is profoundly disrespectful of the sane.
Long years ago, I used to believe that the more knowledge I acquired the happier I would become. On the contrary, I became more and more depressed, solitary, and unhappy.
The one who seeks extraordinary pleasures needs to sacrifice ordinary ones.
If you seek extraordinary pleasures you should first sacrifice ordinary ones. (Variant)
I can never live happily in this world; for when I do not get what I want, I am unhappy; when I get what I want, I am again unhappy, unhappy for those who do not get what they want.
The root of hate is littleness of mind.
If I am a Hindu, anybody is a Hindu.
If I am a Hindu, every single human is a Hindu. (Variant)
The Hindus disregard the world as ‘Maya’, yet their religious practices are full of ‘Maya’.
I don’t know why they attach so much importance to Indian spiritualism. What’s wrong with western idealism, say Berkeley’s idealism? Western idealism rather makes more sense to me than the fuzzy ideas of soul, Brahman and reincarnation.
Considering the level of crime, apathy, corruption, dishonesty, oppression, indiscipline, insincerity, disorder, arrogance, dogmatism, dirtiness, perversion, I think Hindustan is sometimes rightly called Gandustan.
Great Britain Zindabad! Gandustan Murdabad!
Hindus are mostly those who do not know how to walk and talk and where to spit and shit and who speak about Rama, Krishna, and Hinduism, and believe that the religious adherence and unity – Hindutva – can bring them and their nation glory and prosperity.
History is an orphan. It can speak but cannot hear. It can give but cannot take. Its wounds and tragedies can be read and known but cannot be avoided or cured.

In England, they have postcards for sell at loads of bookstalls, post-offices, etc. – postcards which are sarcastic, humorous, and terribly critical of England and the United Kingdom as well as the Queen. They also sell things like footwear, undergarments with the British flag printed all-over. I can’t imagine people in India selling things critical of India. Those possibly selling such things are pretty much likely to be persecuted as well as prosecuted. This tells us the massive difference between two cultures. English culture seems modest and self-critical or even self-deprecating. Indian culture sounds dogmatic and self-congratulatory.
The Indian education system is not Socrates’ kindling of a flame; it’s filling of a vessel.
Almost everything that is glorious and honourable about India comes from her light- skinned invaders, the people who, virtually and tragically, do not exist in India any more.
Almost all glory of India comes from her light-skinned invaders. (Variant)
India is a place where at many points there is freedom where there should be force and force where there should be freedom.
The Indian traffic is so senseless, puerile, and barbaric that, to give a simplest example, the roads know zebra crossing, but the people don’t.
India is a land of GREAT people who do not even know, or seem to care to know, that on a ‘zebra crossing’, pedestrians have ‘right of way’ when there are no additional traffic lights – just one of innumerable examples. And when a knowledgeable gentleman attempts to execute his right he gets nothing but verbal, and possibly physical, attacks and harassment. What a great people! What a great country!
If India is a peace-loving country, as she is often claimed to be by her people, the word ‘peace’ seriously needs a new definition.
If India is a peace-loving country, the word ‘peace’ seriously needs a new definition. (Variant)
The salient sins of a typical Indian: Inanity, Indecency, Indiscipline, Intellectual dishonesty, Impatience, Imperfection, Immaturity, and Irritability.
India would be a rare state to lack a powerful sense of brotherhood amongst its people, and it is no surprise that with such a lack of sense a state is nothing but an artificial political entity, vulnerable to being a breeding ground for corruption and maltreatment of its people. The easiest and the most natural way for a human society to have a strong sense of brotherhood would be through a racial identity, such as the one that prevails in European nations like England.
India – The soulless land that often talks about soul.
The Indian train is the concentration camp on wheels.
To be in India as a gentleman is to be persecuted. The gentleman is ought to be harassed by the mere presence of her incivilities.

The Indian is the most disciplined enemy of discipline.
The Indian is the perfect enemy of discipline. (Variant)
India is a place where politeness is equated with cowardice, and good manners are condemned as gross stupidities.
I dislike the Indian way of thinking; it has always been pretty much illogical, emotional, biased, baseless, and unscientific. I like the western way of thinking, which is very logical, fair, objective, well-founded, and scientific; I find it very innate in me.
England does not require lots of philosophies. She is perfect nearly and innately. India needs saints and scriptures to teach her that ‘Customer is God’, ‘Everyone should do their duty’, etc. And it is another thing that despite the tradition of teachings and blessings, India is raw, wild, and imperfect nearly completely.
I never really liked India. Even in the school age, in the midst of relentless attempts at patriotic brainwashing, I was convinced of her horrendousness, barbarism, and detestability.
How can I like India when India is so uncivilised and I am so un-Indian?
The Indian democracy is a mask which hides the undemocratic, imperious, and barbaric face of the Indian psyche.
India is a democratic jungle.
India and the Indian society are debased to such a low level that it is rather hard to believe that something such as the Gita was ever produced there by some of India's own people.
India is a place where a cow generally gains more respect than a human.
In India, millions of humans are normally seen as cockroaches and a cow is seen as a house of millions of gods. (Variant)
The more I learn about England the more I discover about the evilness of India. When I compare the land I love and the land I was born in, I can’t help being shocked by the difference.
If due to my bitter words India opens her eyes and determines to make all good, necessary, and fundamental changes to herself, before being forced by some superior foreign power, I will see myself as a fortunate victim of her oppression.
I call on the civilised world to boycott Indian products as much as possible until India is determined to be civilised.

India – The world’s hollowest democracy. (Variant)
India is the pinnacle of democratic barbarism.
In India, nature is heavenly at few places, man hellish at most. India is wonderful hell.
India needs introspection – a logical, objective introspection.
The Indians have no sense of revolution and quality of life. If it were the Germans, the British, or the French in place of the Indians, with such level of corruption, exploitation, and disorganisation, they would get themselves on to the streets.
It would have been much better for India if she had been a Protestant country in the British time. There would have been no Pakistan, no divided, weakened India, no significant Islamic terrorism, but rather a more civilised, decent, united, powerful, and westernised Indian society.
Indian patriots seem to have a subtle and risible tendency to imagine that India is the greatest country, since she has the nicest shape!

India is a democratic concentration camp, where the prisoners democratically elect the overseer and the guards.

When an Indian cannot answer a question he simply questions the validity of the question.
India can only solidify my theory about her.
It is best for humanity to function under Anglo-Germanic influence, the influence of discipline, knowledge, and work; and the growth and the cultural advancement of a country like India is sure to give the world a wrong influence and ideal.
India is like an extremely naughty kid; you give it freedom and it grows up to become an irresponsible and dangerous civilian.
In India, an actress can be sued and may be convicted for her ‘obscene’ acts on the screen, as they bring shame on the ‘culture’ of the nation. Well, the nation whose people are not bothered with making queues at shops, saying please and sorry and being polite to strangers, being sincere and honest at offices and work, being decent and conscientious at driving vehicles, being civilised and respectful enough to be moderately silent at ceremonies and celebrations, should better not bother itself with claiming to have 'culture'.
When an Indian shopkeeper does not possess something the customer wants, he normally reacts to the situation not by apologising to the customer but rather by laying the blame on the customer for the situation.
India’s definition of gentleman is ‘one who never indulges in any sexuality in public’.
India’s gentleman is one who never indulges in any sexuality in public. (Variant)
Incivility is the virtue of the Indian.

The way of India is not dedication, honesty, and perfection; the way of India is selfishness, indifference, and negligence.

India is a parody of her motto.
If I am given absolute power to rule India, most Indian dogs would be belching.
India is the most contradictory state in the world, with the power to advance licitly and the power to contaminate subtly; and it is this contradiction that makes her the most perilous thing in the world – India is the deadliest contradiction.
Sir Winston Churchill was largely, so right about Indians: ‘They are a beastly people with a beastly religion’.
There is not much of a fundamental difference between most of the Indians and the Taliban, for both of them come largely from the same basket.
The civilised world must rule India or India will rule the civilised world.
The Indian rule is evil – it is both fraudulent and faulty.
There appears to be a predominately common and profoundly comical misconception amongst Indian patriots that Britain and the West are nothing but a bunch of robbers.
My criticism of India is not a result of my personal deprivation. Even if I am offered the pleasures of heaven I will not deviate from the path I have chosen – the path of truth, love, and justice.
Despite all that I have said about India I can’t disagree with the German scholar Max Müller on his very famous praise of India.
India’s greatness lies essentially in the union of her flair, diversity and poverty.
India’s horoscope and my horoscope are a complete mismatch.
My mind is English – India is nauseating.
The goodness of England inadvertently convinced me of the badness of India.
Immorality is India’s message to the world.
India stands for the Indian proverb ‘Lokaa saange brahmadnyaan; aapan korde paashaan’.
India can suppress me but she cannot suppress my voice. My voice is out there, within the reach of the world. And the conditions are such that the more I am suppressed the more will my voice be heard.
Sometimes I feel I should have sought a Gandhian approach to the Indian evil. Perhaps I lacked the patience; perhaps I feared the seeming ineffectiveness of the method; perhaps the evil within me overpowered the good.
In a much broader perspective, India is a great soul dwelling in a wrecked body.
The majority of Indians, and not the British, are mostly to be blamed for India’s ill condition. It is their excessive selfishness and lack of wisdom that are largely responsible.
The Indians are generally slow and clumsy people, and they moreover seem to cherish the slowness and clumsiness as decent, sweet and moral.
No civilised society would honour its people and celebrities in public with swords and weapons. It happens in India and it gives a very wrong, barbaric message to the youth and the humanity in general.
It is impossible for me, as a thinker, not to criticise India when she stands for so much evil.
My message to the civilised world is this – ‘Beware of that subtly dangerous, uncivilised, barbaric country called India’.
My message to India is this – ‘Do not merely print pictures of your saints and legends on notes, hang their posters, or erect their statues, but also strive to give the world a living example through true following. I too am not perfect and I believe there is a long way to go’.
The fundamental problem with India is the Indian.
Today India is a child that is learning and growing up, and tomorrow it will be a very bad teacher.
India is a child that once grown up will be a very bad teacher. (Variant)
The Indians do not want basic organisation and necessary discipline; the Indians want outdated religion and wild festivities.
It is more the Indian attitude than the Indian talent that is worrisome.
India will take the world to the lowest of all planes, the plane of poverty, incivility, disease and corruption.
Every kind of evil under the sun can be found in India.
Every evil under the sun can be found in India. (Variant)
Educating inherently vile and uncivilised Indians, in a normal way, is like feeding baby monsters and helping them grow up.
I am pro-British, but that does not mean I like or cherish everything the British do or Britain stands for. For example, I do not like British food; I am not a fan of football; and I hate beer. In the same way, although I am anti-Indian, it does not make me blindly hate anything that is Indian. I love Indian songs; I like Indian food; and I have enormous respect for Mahatma Gandhi, Sanskrit and the Bhagavad-gita.
Soon after the 26/11 terrorist Ajmal Kasab was convicted by an Indian court, an Indian minister joyfully said in public that the conviction proved that India was governed by rule of law. Well, Mr Minister, if India were governed by rule of law, most of her people would have been behind bars in the first place, wouldn’t they?
The Indians kill decent, civil people slowly, everyday in their country with their indecent, uncivil behaviour, and when somebody someday opens fire, quickly killing tens of people, he is outright condemned as a terrorist, a monster.
I have an advice for Indians. If you are uncivil because you have unreasonably bad and hectic life, consider to go and settle down in villages and live life glorified and prescribed by the father of the nation; for uncivil behaviour really doesn’t sound to be a fair idea.
When I was studying towards a master’s degree in philosophy in a relatively high standard institution in India, I frequently came across a peon at the doorsteps of a main library who used to greet student-visitors with the rudest possible facial expressions and discipline them with harsh sounds of a large stick. For others and the institution, it was perhaps something acceptable; for me, it was highly uncivil, offensive and unacceptable, though not unusual, for this was the India I had and I have always largely known – The land of envious, arrogant and wicked souls, be they relatives, friends or strangers; the land where man has normally lesser value and respect than holy animals and idols; and the land where money, political power and force almost always triumph.
The way Indians – even the supposedly educated and sophisticated ones – handle books shows, in a simple way, how undisciplined, uncivil and barbaric they are.
India’s true hero is Harshad Mehta – the late, infamous Indian stockbroker.
An economically developed India will be nothing but a rich gutter – economically rich, socially and morally a gutter.
One evening I went to a local, famous Indian bookstore. I was wearing a cap, which I did not want to carry with me right into the bookstore; so I took it off and placed it onto a desk where visitors were normally required to keep their luggage as a measure of precaution against theft. The luggage keeper, misunderstanding my motive to keep the cap with him, said to me that caps were allowed to be taken inside the store, to which I replied politely that I still wished to keep it there, with him. As soon as he heard me saying this, he reacted with utter sarcasm, ‘You want to keep it here forever?’ Through that one sentence he summed up and reminded me of what India is. He only used different words to say ‘Welcome to India!’.
If India wants me to be in prison, may I beg her to consider that I have already been in prison for the last 30 years, except the couple of years spent in England. If India wants me to be killed, may I again beg her to consider that I have been punished enough being born on her soil.
Many wise men know what India is. I have only had the time and guts to pen down the knowledge.
People like N. R. Narayana Murthy hope that India will make inclusive, equitable progress and will make the world a better place; I, on the other hand, believe that India will largely make exclusive, economic progress and will contaminate the world, making it, eventually, a worse place.
A developing India is a developing cancer.
The development of India is the development of Himalayan errors.
India’s virtues are fruitless and vices are fateful.
India is a modern country with pre-modern infrastructure and ancient people.
Finding a good human in India is like finding a small jewel submerged in a huge pond of mud.
India is a bad country – bad people, bad infrastructure, bad system, bad society, where evil enslaves and dominates good. And I believe that good foreign powers should interfere and set things right for the betterment of world and humanity.
India should be issued a summons for her persistent internal and possibly external misdeeds.
A good, decent, sensitive human can never live happily in India.
India will be the largest source of technically skilled and morally unskilled people in the 21st century.
Soiling the civilised world is the direction India is taking.
I call India ‘Indo-Monster’ for her monstrous threat to civilisation.
India is a land of thugs and thieves. Aside from few possible exceptions, there is corruption, fraud, dishonesty, untrustworthiness and barbarism at every level, from top to bottom.
I will open the world’s eyes to the monster called India.
I was born in India, but I was also born in the world. Hence, through a broader, nobler perspective, I should care for the world more than I should care for India.
When I see India, I realise how great England is! When I see England, I realise how great India is!
On the one hand, there is the Indian-born, profound, spiritual, and timeless Bhagavad-gita, and on the other hand, there are the Indian-born, filthy, shallow, and countless men and women!

In India, gangsters, fraudsters and murderers, and only gangsters, fraudsters and murderers, can be political leaders.
India – The land made inhuman by over a billion humans.
Why is India so backward and problematic? – Because bedbugs can only produce bedbugs!
India is indeed a shithole, and the hole is getting bigger.
India is such an imperfect place for a perfectionist.
I find it hilarious as well as annoying the way India depicts herself to her people, especially the youth, through the academic as well as the entertainment industry: India is portrayed as a goddess, the British and the foreign invaders as devils, and Pakistan and some other neighbours as terrorists, evils and the enemies of humanity. Isn’t India – through her unfathomable corruption, unparalleled indiscipline, and profound barbarism, selfishness and apathy – herself an evil and an enemy of her own as well as that of humanity? Had India been continued to be ruled by the British to this day, she, on the whole, would have been a much nicer place to be!
Indian culture is the culture of butchers.
Most Indians are nothing but refined Adivasis.
I am not good and great enough to be tolerant to people as bad and wrong as Indians, though I certainly do not mean all Indians.
Sometimes people ask me with wonder, ‘You had so many problems in England! The menial jobs you did; the financial struggle; the housing problems; the social rejection. And yet, you love England? You want to be in England, not in India?’ I tell them, ‘Look, an average human may have a much more problematic and painful life than a rich gentleman’s dog, for example. And yet, one would love and prefer to be a human, not a dog!’

India made a big mistake on 7th March 2006 and she is making a bigger mistake by remaining ignorant of the big mistake.
The Indian who is of the opinion that India is a land of civilisation must either be a man of ignorance or a man of barbarism. For the man of ignorance, I have a solution – Go and visit England. And keep your eyes open. You shall realise what civilisation is really like; what discipline is really like; what honesty is really like; what dedication is really like; what society is really like; what brotherhood is really like; what nation is really like. … And for the man of barbarism, I am working on the solution.

I have virtually every reason – spiritual, philosophical, political, and personal – to hate India.
An English barber is normally far more polite, gentle, modest, sensible, civilised and self-critical than an Indian professor.
This is what the Indians are like (well, I do believe there could be exceptions), and this is a reason why India needs the British Raj. [The general style of the description, which is in Hindi – one of the main languages of the Indians, is based upon a scene from the 1990 Bollywood film Agneepath starring Amitabh Bachchan.]
केहेने को ये इन्सान है, सिर्फ केहेने को; पर असल में ये पूरा जानवर है मालूम, पूरा जानवर| बंदर के माफिक इसका शकल है; गधे के माफिक इसका भेजा है; सूंवर के माफिक इसका दिल है; कुत्ते के माफिक इसका जबान है; भेड़िये के माफिक इसका सोच है|ये तो सबसे बूरा जानवर है मालूम, सबसे बूरा जानवर|

Every Indian – again I do believe there could possibly be exceptions – appears, in one way or another, to be a beast. Some look as if they are beasts; some speak as if they are beasts; some walk as if they are beasts; some eat as if they are beasts; some think as if they are beasts …
The Indian evil looks unstoppable.
The Indian gentleman is arrogant, aggressive, cunning, a habitual liar, self-centred, undisciplined, unpunctual, a lawbreaker, dogmatic, pretentious and biased.
The old, famous British sign said ‘Dogs and Indians not allowed.’ … I guess dogs are too cute; they should have been allowed.
India – in most ways, such as moral, social, religious, political – is the scum of humanity; and England is the cream of humanity.
Modern India looks so small, dull and beastly compared to ancient India, the India of the Mahabharata.
You go to government offices and many of the small shops and hospitals in India and the staff and the people over there look at you like ‘Why the fuck are you here? Get lost!’
On 2nd February 2011, I encountered two beasts while visiting some nearby place in India – the land of beasts; one inside a posh bookshop, one of the few places where they – the beasts – are least expected, and one outside, where they are truly and naturally expected. Ask me more about the encounter; I bet you will learn a lot about India!

India considers a good, civilised man a stupid man and a bad, uncivilised man an intelligent man.
A main and simple reason I dislike India is that India is mud and I am not a pig to like it.
The USA, the UK, Germany, or possibly the European Union, and Australia should unite and militarily invade India and replace her rotten, so called democratic government by a fine Western dictatorship in order to eliminate the growing cancerous threat India poses to the wider world.

Today there is England, there is the West, there is hope, there is a point in living; tomorrow it will be all India, solely the East, there will hardly be any hope, hardly any point in living.
In England, people seem obsessed about honesty; in India, people seem passionate about dishonesty.
I am ready to die for England; I am ready to die for Great Britain; I am ready to die for the future of Western civilisation. I am ready to be hanged; I am ready to be jailed for life; I am ready to be beaten to death; I am ready to be burnt alive. But I am not ready to make compromises with Indian barbarism; I am not ready to submit to the evil East; I am not ready to turn my back on the cancerous threat India and the East pose to the civilised West, humanity, and the living world.
India reminds me everyday that she is the greatest enemy of human civilisation.
India is my greatest enemy, for she is the greatest enemy of human civilisation.

In India, people unconstitutionally attack even those who constitutionally attack the constitution.
I was born in the gutter but I refuse to belong to it.
It is kind of farcical that India is normally seen as a natural ally of the West and the US. The Indian values of incivility, dishonesty, indiscipline, intolerance in fact make India a natural, subtle and severe enemy of the West and the Western civilisation.

The problems in India are not political; they are biological.
I am not very sure what good can come out of political fasting when virtually every single soul in India seems chronically small-minded & dishonest. Only bullets & missiles from outside might get India on her knees; fasting doesn’t look like a valid option in the case of India.
Friendship with India is friendship with evil.
A friend of India is a friend of evil. (Variant)

Indian democracy is the government of the scoundrels, by the scoundrels, for the scoundrels; and must perish from the earth.
India is the most intricately barbarous, subtly dangerous and obdurately evil state in the world.
To sum up my theory on India, India is a machine which, in virtually any sense – social, political, ethical, educational, is so damaged that it is incapable of repairing itself. It can only be repaired with the aid of some foreign, superior machine, and considering the gravity of the damage, the foreign machine would require almost absolute control over the damaged machine. Thus, first of all, the existing central engine of the machine – which would be ‘the government of India’ – would have to be removed with possibly many or most of its peripheral parts – which would be ‘the ordinary people of India’. The unattended, automatic, damaged machine would only keep damaging itself to total destruction and would also continue to damage the world outside of itself – in the most subtle, inadvertent and dangerous way – through the export of its contaminated peripherals and products.

The only good freedom brought for a common Indian is that it virtually freed him from the burden of the colour of his skin being seen in his country as his disqualification.
I would rather live in British India than in Indian India. I would rather be tyrannised by scholarly, disciplined, sensible, and civilised people, than be overseen by ignorant, chaotic, senseless, and barbaric.
Most of the Indian freedom fighters were largely deluded by impractical, holy feelings and beliefs about India – the beliefs such as just because thousands of years ago some Indians made a few noble inventions, including philosophies and literatures like the Gita, the contemporary Indians are of great significance and are even culturally superior to their imperialistic rulers. This was clearly a dire error of thought, which would be erroneous to the equal degree, even if applied to the time over 60 years after the country’s independence.
The true Indian freedom fighters truly lacked foresight and understanding of the calibre of their people and of their rulers; for if they had the foresight and the understanding, they would have envisaged the true illusion of freedom.
I don’t think India deserves freedom. Do immature, uneducated, undisciplined children deserve freedom? No, they don’t. The children need mature adults to control them, to train them, to educate them. They need to be dictated for their own good. Democracy for India is like democracy for children. And even if the free India becomes a superpower one day, it will be just like children with lots of physical power; the power will be in wrong hands.

India’s Independence Day!! Who is independent??? Corrupt ministers, fraudulent officers, uncivil peoples…
A free India is a dangerous idea.
A free India is a wrong idea.
India is the best example of what happens when freedom goes in the wrong hands.
If India voluntarily gives herself back to the British to be ruled, I imagine she will have significantly less exploitation and better order and governance than what she has at present under her own rule.
I want to show the world how wrong India is and how right England is. I want to show the world that there is a grave, monstrous problem, and I want to demand a solution. I want more freedom for those who deserve it and less for those who do not.
I cannot give up when God is up in heaven, Truth is in the mind, and England is in the heart.
A day will come when India – out of her natural incompetence to rule herself – will be in such a mess that every Indian will be regretful about her independence from the British.
India freed herself from the British to be enslaved by herself, and she is a master worse than the British.
India is enslaved by herself. (Variant)
‘Better than the entire world, is our Hindustan …’ – The greatest joke of all times, made by an Indian poet called Muhammad Iqbal.
England and India – they are more than mere physical entities; they are concepts – right and wrong, true and false, knowledge and ignorance, discipline and indiscipline, civility and barbarism, sanity and madness – they are spirits; they are forces – good and evil.
The more I love England, the more I hate India; the more I hate India, the more I love England – The more I love good, the more I hate evil; the more I hate evil, the more I love good.
If England and India were to be personified, the former would be a goddess and the latter would be a witch.
Indian autocrats should bear in mind that I have the same blood flowing in my veins as that of Tilak and Savarkar whose monuments they erect on their soil.
I am in complete disfavour of the freedom that was given by Britain – the most great and civilised land – to India – a most uncivilised and evil. When Britain gave India freedom, the force of good set free the force of evil.
In India, self-criticism is stupidity; in England, it is refinement.
In Indian history textbooks the British colonial rulers and administrators are largely and extensively portrayed as monsters. Aren’t the Indians, who used to burn widows alive, monsters? Aren’t the Indian kings, who massively exploited their subjects, monsters? Aren’t the innumerable, corrupt ministers and officers of the free India monsters? Aren’t the uncivil, commonplace people of modern India monsters? Don’t they, in the same way, deserve a place in the textbooks as monsters?
The Indian rule of India is a far greater evil than the British rule of India.
The English are civil to each other because they, being civilised people, understand the value of civility. Some of them may purely be wearing masks, but that’s still better than the way Indians behave to each other, at roads, shops, offices, colleges, even hospitals. I’m not at all saying every Englishman is great and good; I’m not at all saying every Indian is small and bad. And I myself am not a racist, for I do not believe that race is a primary determinant of human capacities. I have been through loads of racism in England, but I understand the greatness of England. The Indian patriots talk about literacy levels – when a census was taken in the 19th century, it was found that there was 13% literacy in India and 8% in Europe. Well, by the end of the 19th century, Britain alone had produced the following geniuses – Charles Babbage (1791–1871), Isaac Newton (1643–1727), Charles Darwin (1809–1882), William Shakespeare (d. 1616), William Wordsworth (1770–1850), James Watt (1736–1819), James Clerk Maxwell (1831–1879), J. J. Thomson (1856–1940), Adam Sedgwick (1785–1873), John Dalton (1766–1844), Michael Faraday (1791–1867), William Herschel (1738–1822), Robert Hooke (1635–1703), Edward Jenner (1749–1823), Alexander Graham Bell (1847–1922), Francis Bacon (1561–1626), David Hume (1711–1776), John Locke (1632–1704), Henry Cavendish (1731–1810), George Stephenson (1781–1848), Joseph Swan (1828–1914), Alexander Bain (1818–1903), James Braid (1795–1860), Robert Brown (1773–1858), Rowland Hill (1795–1879), Charles Dickens (1812–1870), and many more. The small, 5% difference in the percentage of literacy matters far less than the pool of talent they had compared to Indians. And I really hope they, the patriots, are not of the opinion that they, the geniuses, too were pirates. The patriots talk about the white exploitation of India and the world. What about the shamelessly corrupt ministers and officers in the free India? Aren’t the people in India wearing masks when, on the one hand, they praise souls like Gandhi and Shivaji and, on the other hand, are utterly selfish and materialistic and are dishonest, ruthless, and barbaric to their own people? The British on the whole are far more sensible and better people than the Indians. Even the semi-literate Britons are in most cases smarter and, importantly, more sensible and intellectually honest compared to (formally) educated Indians. I think one should first cast off their hideous prejudices against the English and the white people. The greatness is not in the skin; it’s in the minds. One can see it only when one stops wearing their prejudiced glasses.
The English culture is mostly intellectual and academic, and is therefore, in the true sense, a culture; the Indian culture is mostly unintellectual and unacademic, and is therefore, in the true sense, not a culture.
I am convinced that I, for example, in most cases, would have had significantly more freedom in the India ruled by Smith and Green than in the India ruled by Chavan and Singh.

You forced smart, disciplined and knowledgeable souls out, and put incompetent, barbaric and rubbish blokes in to rule millions of mortals, most of whom seem to have no patience to see the value of making queues at shops, following basic traffic rules, being honest to themselves and civil to others, etc, etc; and you call this Independence!... India! Wish you a very happy Independence Day! May the dreams of your loyal, ignoble subjects come true! May the Devil bless you with even greater freedom to pollute yourself and the wider world!
India needs British rule; or more correctly, civilised Indians, which unfortunately are in a terrible minority, need British rule; and more importantly, the world needs British rule in India; for most of the Indians are not humans – they are far worse than savage animals – in short, freedom for India is freedom for evil.
Why Mother India wanted freedom? She wanted freedom so that her noble sons could be free to spit whenever and wherever they wish.
I think it is time the common Indian realises that it is in his own interest that the government of India is replaced by the governments of one or more Western democratic states. (I, for numerous objective reasons, am in favour of the United Kingdom, possibly supervised by the United States and the United Nations.) Britain’s government will bring better governance, for which it will naturally be paid taxes out of Indian pockets; and there are grounds to believe that there will be less financial malfunction. There is likely to be a much greater presence of British businesses and industries in India, but it would be a small price to pay for the enrichment of life of the common Indian, the enrichment the Indian democratic governments have ever failed to attain. Through the presence of relatively dictatorial Western power, there shall be an increased potential for stability and peace in the entire subcontinent.
Can a people as undisciplined, as dishonest, as small-minded, as uneducated, as barbaric, as superficial, and as wrong as Indians create a healthy, prosperous nation? Are they fit to govern themselves at all in the first place?
If India is allowed to continue ruling herself, she will one day be the deadliest chaotic state on the face of the earth. And that day might not be too far away. A free, democratic India is an outrageously bold experiment, and it is failing. The free India is marching towards total destruction.

Anna Hazare says he is concerned with the problem that only four Indians are ruling India. Shouldn’t he instead be concerned with the problem that one day all Indians may be ruling India?
The rise of the ‘India Against Corruption’ movement and the massive public support it has gained seem to have proved that India, as a democracy, has failed. And the root cause of this failure seems clearly to be the undemocratic mind of the Indian people, on the whole. A good democracy needs a good, honest, broad-minded and democratic mindset prevalent amongst its people, the way it appears to be prevalent in the Western nations. Now, if the ‘Jan Lokpal Bill’ is passed and made a law, it will centralise power and will create a quasi-dictatorial state. Such state, overseen by good, honest and transparent people, may initially prove beneficial for the country and the people, but in all likelihood, it too will eventually be infected by the unhealthy, undemocratic, base Indian mindset, or commonly, ‘the cancer of corruption’. And alarmingly, this time, the state will be much less democratic and far more dictatorial in its very basic structure. The state will be even more tyrannical, and a third and incredibly demanding freedom struggle will become essential.

– on ‘Jawaharlal Nehru’s speech on the eve of India’s independence’
Your legacy to India? Certainly, it is 400+ million people incapable of governing themselves. – on Jawaharlal Nehru’s quote: “My legacy to India? Hopefully, it is 400 million people capable of governing themselves.”
The Mahabharata is so true about the Kali Yuga! It is ruled by Sudras. But, of course, the Kali Yuga exists in the land of the Mahabharata – India. In England, there is kind of Satya Yuga, where Brahmins seem to have dominance.
Krishna wants man to be a karma-yogi. But is Krishna himself a karma-yogi? If man’s karma-yoga is his unconditional, absolute allegiance to Krishna, Krishna’s karma-yoga would be his unconditional, absolute allegiance to morality. Krishna clearly lacks such allegiance and therefore he is not a karma-yogi.
The Bhagavad-gita’s karma-yoga means man’s unconditional, absolute allegiance to uncompromising, pretentious evil.
If Kashmir is a part of India, then, may be, Pakistan is also a part of India.
The Bhagavad-gita is Hindu terrorism, and Krishna is a terrorist. However, that does not necessarily mean that those who advocate or attempt to spread the Gita are terrorists, since they may not be aware of the terrorism entailed in it. Krishna is a terrorist though, for he is supposed to be (omniscient) God, and as such, through the Gita – his eternal message – he has directly, or indirectly, threatened the modern way of life, considering most of the modern people as miscreants, the ones to be annihilated.
Krishna attempts to sound like a good guy, but he wants the inherently miserable material world to function for no good reason.
In verse 3:22 of the Gita, Krishna says that though he wants nothing, he does his prescribed duties. In 3:24, Krishna – for giving reason he does his prescribed duties – says that if he does not do his prescribed duties all worlds will be ruined and he will be the cause of producing unwanted population, which, as a result, will wreck all living beings. So, Krishna does not ‘want’ to wreck all living beings. Therefore, Krishna ‘wants’ something, which is in contradiction with 3:22.
In verse 16:6 of the Gita, Krishna says that there are two types of created living entities in the world: divine and demonic. In 16:1, 16:2, & 16:3 – describing the qualities of the divine ones – he says that they – the divine ones – are marked by fearlessness, charity, self-control, study of the Vedas, non-violence, simplicity, cleanliness, politeness, modesty, compassion for all living beings, etc. In 16:8 – describing the qualities of the demonic ones – he says that they – the demonic ones – are marked by atheism. In 16:4, he says that the demonic ones are marked by arrogance, conceit, anger, harshness, etc. Now, quite evidently, many atheists, including scientists, philosophers, humanists, and people who do not believe in or study Vedas, are actually marked by some of the qualities that Krishna says only the divine ones have – for example, charity, politeness, and compassion for all living beings.
If Krishna were at all to be taken seriously, he could not really be regarded as a good, kind, just, and noble Lord, but would rather, to a very large extent, be worthy of condemnation as evil.

Prof Namdevrao Jadhav’s books, such as Panipatcha Vijay, insinuate how preposterous, obnoxious and sinister anti-Brahminism has become.
Prof Namdevrao Jadhav is perhaps the most notorious of historians who write history to gratify their prejudices.
‘खरा नामदेवराव जाधव असा आहे की तो खोटा इतिहास लिहितो.’
English translation: ‘True Namdevrao Jadhav is such that he writes false history.’
The reading of Prof Namdevrao Jadhav’s books in fact puts me into a dilemma: whether I should laugh or cry; for on the one hand they are hilariously doltish and on the other hand they are offensively false.
This Prof Namdevrao Jadhav, who belongs to the Maratha majority, writes false history, lectures around the state, tries to turn people and the youth against Brahmins; will any legal action be taken against him?
In his books, such as Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj: Visionary Secular Great King of India and Shivaji Maharaj: Secular King of Secular India, anti-Brahmin Prof Namdevrao Jadhav applauds Shivaji for being secular. Is he secular himself though? He quite certainly is not! And it is not difficult to fathom that there are strong, dirty political wills and forces behind him and his works. And it is also not difficult to understand what those political forces precisely are.
आपल्याला वाट्टेल तसा खोटा इतिहास लिहून आणि बुद्धिमान, कर्तृत्ववान ब्राह्मणांना मूर्ख व हीन लेखून, व त्यांची जात काढून, स्वतः प्रा. नामदेवराव जाधवानेच स्वतःची जात दाखविली आहे.
स्वतःला शिवाजी महाराजांची म्हणून मिरवणारी ही संभाजी ब्रिगेड व नामदेवराव जाधवासारखी ब्राह्मणद्वेषी, ब्राह्मणेतर माणसं काय लायकीची आहेत हे त्यांनी ज्याप्रकारे हे राष्ट्र चालविले आहे, जो भ्रष्टाचार, जी गुंडगिरी व अव्यवस्था माजविली आहे, त्यावरून दिसतच आहे.
Prof Namdevrao Jadhav’s books, and the publisher ‘Rajmata Prakashan’, must be legally banned for promoting massively fabricated history, systematically, consistently and unjustifiably targeting the Brahmin minority, and potentially instigating disintegration of the society.
प्रा. नामदेवराव जाधव म्हणजे खर्या इतिहासाच्या नावाखाली खोटा इतिहास लिहून, तरुणांची मने भडकवून, समाजाची, तसेच येणार्या पिढ्यांची दिशाभूल करण्याचा प्रयत्न करणारा एक कट्टर ब्राह्मणद्वेषी सैतान.
काय हलकट आणि खोटारडा माणूस आहे हा ‘प्रा. नामदेवराव जाधव’! पुस्तकांच्या पानापानांवर धादांत खोटा इतिहास लिहून खर्या इतिहासाच्या नावाखाली विकतोय; आणि ह्या मराठा लोकांनी एकेकाळी ब्राह्मणांच्या बरोबरीने बहुजन समाजाचा छळ केला, आणि आता वेळ आली तर हा ब्राह्मणांकडे बोट दाखवतोय, त्यांना शिव्या घालतोय, मुसलमानांसकट सर्व ब्राह्मणेतरांना ब्राह्मणांविरुद्ध करण्याचा प्रयत्न करतोय!
‘भारत हा इतका मागासलेला देश आहे की त्यात प्रा. नामदेवराव जाधवसारखा मूर्ख, अडाणी व हरामखोर माणूस इतिहासकार, व्याख्याता व सल्लागार म्हणून नावारूपास येऊ शकतो!’
English translation: ‘India is such a backward country that in it someone as dense, ignorant and crooked as Prof Namdevrao Jadhav can come to be known as a historian, lecturer and advisor!’

The world without the Germanic people is like the solar system without the sun – darkness everywhere.
Experience suggests that a world in black hands is normally a world in the hands of misery and death.
A fundamental tragedy of the world is that white is smart but bad and black is good but mad.
The world is in peril – the right is shrinking and the wrong is spreading.
The English are the maturest people – The English are the fittest people – The English mostly are the master race.
The Caucasian race is the king of the human race; the Germanic race is the king of the Caucasian race; and the English race is the king of the Germanic race – The English race is therefore the king of the human race.
White man conquered black man with mind; black man will conquer white man with multitude.
Which land occupied mostly by dark-skinned people could ever be called civilised?
I think it can roughly be said that the white people, especially the Germanic peoples, are superbrahmins and the black people are supershudras.
Roughly, a white man is a superbrahmin and a black man is a supershudra. (Variant)
I’m not exactly racist, for I’m not stupid or mad enough to think that any non-white person is necessarily inferior to any white person. However, at the same time I can’t deny that the world without white people would rather have been a shitty place to be. And even to this day, the nations of white people are, generally & indisputably, so much developed & prosperous as compared to the nations of non-whites.
I imagine that if the white people hadn’t robbed non-white people, there wouldn’t have been a concentration of wealth & energy to fuel up things like the industrial revolution. If this is awful then, well, the world itself is inherently awful. If whites had not exploited blacks, then very probably there would have been no industrial revolution, no advancement in sciences, medicine, and, in all, shitty & barbaric sort of stuff all over.
The basic problem with racism is that there can be a white man in black clothes and vice versa.
Racism is the mother of imperialism and the murderer of empires.
White supremacy is a half-truth – a 90% truth though.
There are two basic types of racism – ‘absolute racism’ and ‘limited racism’. Absolute racism is the belief in the superiority of one race over another with no possibility of exception. Limited racism is the racism that, unlike absolute racism, includes, and is thus limited by, the possibility of exception. Thus, an ‘absolute white supremacist’ is one who believes that every white person is necessarily superior to every non-white person. A ‘limited white supremacist’, on the other hand, is one who does not believe in the necessity, though he believes in the strong likelihood of a white person being superior to a non-white person. I, for example, am a limited white supremacist. Absolute racism is ‘true racism’; limited racism is ‘false racism’, for it does not believe in race as a primary determinant of human capacities. There are also three other fundamental types of racism – A, B and C. In type A, there is belief in the superiority of one race over another and there is also the existence of dislike of another race. In type B, there is belief in the superiority of one race over another but there is no dislike of another race, like a man who may believe in the superiority of humans over dogs but may not dislike dogs. In type C, there is no belief in the superiority of one race over another but there is the existence of dislike of another race, the sort of dislike a man may possess of extraterrestrials just because they are different.
Racism is a cancer of the mind and a plague upon mankind. It is a crude generalisation made in theory and grave injustices done in practice.

मी अमराठी लोकांची दादागिरी, वंशवाद आणि मूलतत्त्ववाद पाहिलाय, स्वतः अनुभवलाय. महाराष्ट्रात राहून त्याच्या झळा सोसल्यात. एक प्रकारची हतबद्धता भोगलेय. अशा परिस्थितीत केवळ तीन व्यक्ती डोळ्यासमोर येतात – शिवाजी महाराज, संभाजी महाराज, आणि राज ठाकरे. दुर्दैवाने यातील पहिले दोन महापुरुष आज या जगात नाहीत. मात्र तिसरे आहेत. त्याबद्दल त्यांना शतशः धन्यवाद!

I do not really believe in the idea of reincarnation; I do not believe in the concept of soul; and I am a semi-solipsist. However, if in case I am wrong, I do not think I can then be wrong that I was an Englishman or a German in my previous life.
Religions, themselves, are (intellectual) blasphemies.
Ask a scientist a very profound question on his science and he will be silent. Ask a religious person a very simple question on his religion and he will be frenzied.
Ask a true scientist a very profound question on his science, and he will be silent. Ask a true religious person a very simple question on his religion, and he will be frenzied. (Variant)
The tragedy of religion is that it is a perfect combination of profundity and bigotry, and it attracts men, usually, not on the basis of its moral and philosophical merit, if any, but on the basis of conservatism of mediocrity.
All theistic religions are fictional works of divine hypocrisy.
Every theistic religion is man’s work of divine hypocrisy. (Variant)

I believe Sachin Tendulkar is a good man, but he plays for the enemy of human civilisation, and that makes him a monster – He is ‘Little Monster’, ‘Master Monster’.

If Sambhaji is assumed as innocent as he is portrayed by major contemporary historians such as Vishwas Patil, Shivaji, in some ways and to some extent, turns out to be unjust and grasping. He seems to sacrifice justice in being unjust towards Sambhaji, for the love for his rapacious wife, Soyarabai. He also seems to sacrifice the future of his subjects and his kingdom for immediate imperial ambitions, by maintaining his corrupt ministers in power so as to keep the kingdom temporarily functioning and stable. At any rate, it appears that Sambhaji and Shivaji cannot both be irreproachable; at least one of them, it looks, has to be grossly guilty.
A major reason behind Sambhaji’s downfall was that he, like his father, Shivaji, was inequitable in punishment and justice. Had Sambhaji objectively and timely dealt with and punished his brother-in-law, Ganoji Shirke – the traitor, he would not have been tragically captured. Aurangzeb’s equitability, in contrast, always gave him the winning edge.
Quite sarcastically, I am amazed that the Sambhaji Brigade has not yet demolished Shrimant Bajirao Peshwa’s statue at the Shaniwar Wada!
I think Brahmins should unite and form Bajirao Brigade to fight the scoundrels; I suspect it is one day going to be impossible for Brahmins to live in Maharashtra, or quite possibly in the entire India, with any possible honour.

Shivaji’s followers do not imitate his nobility and character; they only imitate his fierceness and aggression.
Shivaji’s followers are certainly tarnishing his image with their immoral, barbaric behaviour.
Aurangzeb normally appears to be smarter than Shivaji.

When I say that British society on the whole is superior to Indian society, I mean that the former is intellectually and culturally more developed than the latter, the way man on the whole is more developed than and superior to any other animal. Intellectual and cultural development may not advance the level of happiness, as animals may on the whole be happier than humans, but it is normally the life of man that is nobler and more cherishable than the life of animals.
The worst mockery God can make of a moralist is that He compels him to be a solipsist.
I have far more reasons to rather disbelieve that a man besides me suffers when he cries, yet I have far more sentiments than those great reasons to instead weep for his far less likely sufferings.
I am a solipsist who cares about the world.

SUBHAS CHANDRA BOSE
Subhas Chandra Bose either never realised the simple fact that for India Nazism, and possibly Imperial Japan too, would have eventually proved to be a profoundly greater evil than British imperialism or did not remember the basic principle that a lesser evil must not be weakened in its close fight against a greater evil.
It seems clearly that Subhas Chandra Bose had a blind hatred for the British Raj and was prepared to go to virtually any extent to cause its demise, even such an extent that could have inadvertently caused a much greater or extreme harm to his fellow countrymen.
‘Subhas Chandra Bose’s unintended motto: ‘Give me blood and I will give you even greater enslavement!’’

If suicide were as simple as uttering the word, this planet would have had all creatures but humans.
I am often confused as to whether I should take the terrible pains to prepare myself given the likelihood that I will be arrested and imprisoned for life and/or persecuted by India – the land of beasts – or I should kill myself so as to rest in peace for eternity… The latter option sounds better when I believe it’s all an illusion anyway, whereas the former looks worthwhile if I truly love philosophy and England.
