India’s Modi Wave And Lanka’s Moda (Foolish) Wave

By Shyamon Jayasinghe –

Sharp on the heels of the Modi electoral phenomenon that swept mighty India, Sri Lankan leaders from their humble podium have had the guts to add their two cents’ worth. Inasmuch as these imbecilic utterances did not generate serious response from anyone it did add to the unending fodder for comic relief and wind- release that ordinary powerless people in Lanka have been experiencing over the whole period of the current regime: what with the antics of Dr Mervyn, Maranthika Upawasage Wimal Weerawansa, and the High King himself.

Yes, BJP leader Modi won a landslide sending home most of the Congress parliamentarians and their kith and kin; bag and baggage. Indians have such a luxury which we Sri Lankans lost after JR introduced the Executive Presidency and the PR system and Mahinda Rajapaksa (MR) executed the Bahubootha Vyawasthawa to its logical end. That logical end has been so bizarre and ugly and dysfunctional that there is massive public demand for reverting to the old system. Modi has ample power to rule sans coalition restrictions. His only real-politic limitation would be Jayalalitha in Tamilnadu who will rule that state with less discretion and more rough muscle. Of course Vaiko is mercifully gone but that is because Jayalalithaa stole the latter’s constituency.

How possibly sinister the combination of a formidable central government and forbidding Tamilnadu could be for our little island has not been detected by the Lankan government. The stage is set for another Rajiv Gandhi-type threat of invasion if Lanka fails to toe the Indian line.  Yet our ruling class prefers to see no evil and hear no evil. President Mahinda Rajapaksa went on record stating that it would be easier to deal with the new dispensation in India than it was with the former. Yes, in a sense and no in a stronger sense.

However, the highlight of the moda wave from Lanka was the very first utterance from Vasudeva Nanayakkara who we know has never been sane. Vasu states emphatically that the rise of Modi will signal a dark age in Asian politics. Mad people give no reason and Vasu doesn’t. It’s his inspired vision. After Vasu, came the UPFA powerful sibling Minister, Basil Rajapaksa who blurted out that Modi was “another Mahinda Rajapaksa.” Modi will never forgive him for that assessment. At least Basil, his image showing with his thumb trying to plug a hole, gives reasons: Mahinda Rajapaksa is a “doer” like Modi, says Basil.

Modi has indeed been a doer but in the right direction. He did falter in his younger days by fanning nationalistic ‘Hindutva” sentiments. On the other hand, Modi ran Guajarat three times in succession as Chief Minister into a non-corrupt state yielding great development outcomes. Gujarat was also fiscally sound. A solid achievement portfolio constituted Modi’s launching base. Having been a chaiwala Modi belonged to a strongly disadvantaged community. Yet, he had the showing ability of Premadasa and was similarly able to break through the claustrophobic Indian hierarchical system.

MR had no such disadvantage and he plugged his way up through maneuver within the party. Modi has an ideology; MR never had and doesn’t intend to have. ‘Mahinda Chinthanaya is more a fun document. The only drive that MR has displayed is to keep firming his and his family’s hold at any cost. The War he achieved but soon got rid of the man who fought the ground battle with blood sweat and tears. Nor has he been able to salvage his government from serious international charges. With all the public backing MR had after the war victory he could have translated that victory to meaningful governance. Have you heard MR speak one word over his nine long years against corruption? Corruption has been institutionalized in Lanka. Modi, on the other hand, spoke and achieved a corrupt-free administration. Of course, MR has done construction infrastructure. That, again, has to be seriously qualified by questions with regard to their usage and benefits to the economy and their transparency. There is a nice Facebook joke going around that MR is a ‘sellam (fake) Janadhipathi as he has built sellam harbours, sellam ports etc.” The finances of the nation are in a perilous state as the debt burden skyscrapes by the day. The ordinary person wails under the cost of living burden while not one cent has been given as increase to salaries and pensions over the entire duration of the Rajapaksa regime. Income inequality is gaping in size.

Proceeding further on the Basil comparison is evidently a waste of time. Let’s hope MR will turn a new leaf inspired by Modi’s famous Varodara speech delivered after his electoral triumph: “There are no enemies in politics and democracy, only competitors. That’s the beauty of democracy. The strength of democracy lies in taking everyone together. Despite a clear mandate we want to keep everyone together,” he said.

The “DNA” of his “work culture” was “sabka saath, sabka vikas [support and development of all],” Mr. Modi said.

Even at this late stage cannot MR reintroduce our democratic institutions by abolishing the Executive Presidency and returning checks and balances and the rule of law?  Can’t be honest and without malice to dissent?

    What a caption “Modi Wave And Lanka’s Moda Wave”
    and the article list all the main actors of Lanka with their opinions on Moda wave.

    I challenge all our esteemed commentators to express their moda views, I refrain myself from naming them, as I though should refrain myself from doing such things.

    (I am only referring to esteemed lot not the general smart commentators)

    Lets see who will have go at it 1st.

      Afzal you Sinkalam:

      More Bootlicking and idiot when are you going to start licking like a Dog

      ***Modi’s hometown an ancient Buddhist site
      May 19 (CT) Sri Lankans will be delighted to know that India’s Prime Minister-elect, Narendra Modi, has strong historical links with Buddhism. Firstly, there are some striking similarities in the personal lives of the Buddha and Modi. Secondly, Modi’s hometown, Vadnagar in Gujarat, was a major centre of Buddhism in Western India when the famous Chinese traveller, Huen Tsang or more correctly, Xuanzang (602-664 AD), visited it.

      THIS IS THE MOST RECENT DISCOVERY

        Have you heard the latest joke of Maharaja-paiya?

        He has said in broken Tamil in the genocidal war celebrations in Matara that no Tamils were killed in Mullivaaikkaal in 2009 !

        There is nobody to beat this pathological liar! Even if you lie, do it convincingly you idiot.

        Undoubted who else would take the bait except the one and only “Kali Maan” (mud used for pottery)

        People here we have the No: 01 Esteemed Commentator, I really doubted any one would bite it.

        When I saw the reply from Mud Head I was overjoyed, I thought no one will take it. But I forgot Kali has mud in his head so there u go. CT’s addition to the Moda Wave.

        Ohh he/she/??? added a new word to his/hers/???? fav words “Dog”

          You are stuck in the Mud. Dont know know whether to Lick Modi or MR. But sadly neither will work for the following reasons.

          As a half sinhalese you can lick lick and lick Modi it wont work. As a half Muslim you can lick lick and lick Thug MR and that wont work either.
          So my advise to you is why dont you try licking a DOG.

          You are right I cant read English but at least I dont lick like you lot. Before long all 20 million of you will be licking Modi your Colonial Master.
          At least the Tamil Nadu fisherman can fish now in troubled waters.
          By the way we have got a full list of all the ISAIPRIYAS from your Soldier brothers. Do you have any more and if you do can you publish it as we need for the hearing at the HAGUE.

            don’t forget to vote for yourself, you have missed few of your comments.
            We can see you are furious it will pass play with mud a bit more. I can imagine your pain when Velu Baba got his head blown off in 2009.

            For your information Tamil Nadu fisherman are steeling the livelihood of Northern Tamils !

            Ohh yes u don’t care right u live in another country as a refugee why would u care about the people u left behind.

              Of course the Tamilnadu fishermen are staeling your fish called poaching. What is wrong with it you idiot. They are our brothers and you are bloody our enemy steeling our LAND.

              Idiot for your information lot of your brothers ( Sinhalese ) have calimed asylum claiming to have helped Tamikls for which they are wanted my MR. In reality they they killed Tamils and escaped to the West and claimed Asylum. Scum bags.

        Kali, you idiot, didn’t you know Sri Lanka is not a Buddhist country. The following illustrates:

        Asgiriya and Malwatte Mahanayakas opposed the President’s move to give the Australian Packer Casino and Gaming licenses. He bribed the Mananayakes to keep their mouths shut, which they accepted. The bribes were 37 tax free car permits for Asgiriya, and 22 tax free car permits for Malwatte.

        These two got together to celebrate the windfall. Asgiriya said “See, Malwatte, if you do something with a good heart, you are rewarded instantly”. Malwatte replied, “Your Wahanse’s heart is too much good. That is why you got 37 and I got only 22”.

          Buddhists are Drug dealers ( Prime Minister ), Rapists Gamblers and that is why Kerry Packer has been invited to town. For pleasure you idiot and pleasure has no boundaries.

        Kali,

        Yes Modi’s home town may have close links to Lord Buddha. But he never sell Buddhism as a commodity like your fake Buddhist joker who trick 70% Buddhist Sinhalese to get their vote. One is a honest Politician and the other is an ACE Alibaba crook.

        Also when a Gamaya become the President he thinks he is the King of the world.So he acts like a crazy King.

        Which President come with an entourage of super luxury Cars, motor bikes, police escort, security personnel and with a bunch of horses to the podium just to honour fallen soldiers. Infact he was honouring himself more than honouring the war heroes and war veterens.

        Also which President wear sun glasses when hoisting the National Flag and when singing National anthem. This is not a super Bawl game, but a national issue. Is this the way to show respect to fallen solgiers. You guess.

        Also which president in the world is kept seated when taking the honour guard of marching troops. I have never seen anywhere a President is comfortably seated on a chair when taking the honour guard. This is a disgrace to the citizen. In China it can take over three hours of standing taking honour guard.

        This is what happens when an absolute uneducated Gamaya trying to show off to the world that he is The King in a Banana Republic. Both Sadam Husain, Idi Amin and Gadaffi did the same jokes before went down in history.

        Finally the leapord never change it’s spots where ever it goes and our Joker is same.

        Abolish 18th Amendment and then you will see the real President.

        Lot more to learn. Good luck.

    I will have Poop Azwer as the 1st in the list

    Doesn’t that make us also the contributors to the Moda Wave ?

    Millions of Sri Lankans share the desperation echoed in your concluding remarks: “Even at this late stage cannot MR reintroduce our democratic institutions by abolishing the Executive Presidency and returning checks and balances and the rule of law?”.

    Let us not waste our time or energy on these Junta rulers.

    There is only way out. Sri Lanka needs to effect a “Modi Style Wave”.

    Hambantota Clan needs to be swept away from corridors of power in Colombo.

    Moda said:-“there are no minotities in this country”
    and then put road blocks to stop Tamils from going to the temples to grieve their kith and kin.

    During the victory celebration speech in the Sinhala south Matara, as he was blaring that the Tamils are now living peacefully in the North, in the Tamil North his armed forces were trampling with their feet the floral and flame trbiute being offered to the dead ones, under the order of the very commander of the armed forces.

    Blood is thicker than water. When push comes to shove, New Delhi will always support another Indian State (Tamil Nadu) with its Hindu population than a currently rabid Buddhist state with close military links to India’s hated enemies, Pakistan and China. Why do we continue to fool ourselves with our own propaganda as happened for over 3 years in Geneva with fatal results? Unless we get real, we are heading for a major disaster. Maybe the Modi situation is already lost for Sri Lanka. To save it we will have to cave into all of India’s demands, or else face the consequences. With such incompetents handling foreign policy and foreign governments at both Ministerial and ambassadorial levels, what can we hope for other than subjugation or worse, a Crimea solution in which our imbecile Foreign Ministry supported Russia! Congress and Sonia G had an axe to grind against Prabhakaran and the LTTE for killing Rajiv. So a Congress led India went along with the Regime in Colombo for the most part. Modi? It’s a whole different ball game. Let’s not fool ourselves like we did in Geneva, with fatal results.

      A little addendum? When Putin’s Russia did the crime on Crimea, the West, i.e. US, EU and UK imposed travel bans, asset seizures and banking restrictions on Putin & Co. which brought Russia to heel. They now say they are withdrawing their troops. But if India does the same Crimea crime on Sri Lanka’s north (after the Crimea crime was supported by our idiotic Foreign Ministry), none of our former friends US,EU or UK will impose any sanctions on India. They will sit back and chuckle. Neither China nor Russia will go to war on behalf of a family regime in Colombo. Basically we have lost all our useful friends and acquired a bunch of useless dictator friends from Beijing and Moscow.

        Kevin,

        Very true. In fact US, EU, UK … will not get involved in a useless mess like Banana Republic of Rajapakshas and Moda Choon Sri Lankans but would get India to implement their action plan.

        MARA gon thadiya would not know a clue of what would happen to him until the bugger is B56 bombed from heaven, ChampAkaya would run down underground sewerage ducts for cover ringing alarm bells by his rocking kuttama against his bolting legs! And that is the real moment, not in 2009 when Sri Lankans are freed from the clutches of all sorts of terrorism. A new Sri Lanka would be born from the ashes. This is the best the West and India can do to help Sri Lanka.

    Shyamon,

    Racial politics is what brought Modi into power in Gujarat in the first place. You quietly left out the bit about Modi being the incumbent at the time of race riots in Gujarat that killed more than a thousand Muslims (or you glossed over it with a dismissive statement about youthful blunders). It was widely reported that he fomented that riot and deliberately held back the police until most of the gruesome killings were done. His popularity in Gujarat soared after that race riot.

    Don’t you see the parallel between Modi and Moda MaRa’s modus operandi.

    My reading of the mood of Indians who swept Modi into power is ‘race’ based rather than his so called anti corruption agenda. The only way he is going to keep and enhance this colossal power is by continuing to bash the Muslims.

    So where do our so called Modayas stand with regards to Modi. True, Modi is a Hindu Nationalist (that is what BJP stands for) while on the other hand the Sinhala Buddhists are historical enemies of Hindus and Hinduism. However it is my belief that the common bonds of hatred of Muslims and bashing Muslims for popular support by both Modi and Mara will ultimately prove to be a stronger bond than the divisiveness that the disparate religious factions that the Modi and Mara belong to will cause. Modi and Mara are bound to become strange bedfellows indeed.

    Any solace that the Sri Lankan Tamils expected from a Modi led government I believe, is bound for disappointment.

    Time will tell.

    Hey BBS Rep
    MR already took the plane to China, his master, to discuss the serious possibility of an Indian invasion in Ukrainian style. Modi will back Tamilnadu. It is a matter of time. MR’s game is fizzling out.
    We got rid of the Portuguese by inviting the Dutch and we got rid of the Dutch by inviting the British. MR thinks we can similarly invite the Chinese to ward off the Indian threat. He forgets Western backing for India. Hambantota Port will be useful at last as Chinese will land there.

    “Onna Babo Billo enawa”. Now Modi becomes the Billa and Jayalalitha the hora billa and our own Basil aiya had to shoot his fat mouth making comparisons of Modi with his aiya. What an idiot!!he has shot all of us on our feet and the consequences will be very comical. Why can’t these people think before they talk. We have an idiot like Mervyn and now another buffoon like Basil and wonder who else ?Deiyo saaki !!!

    TO BBS REP AND OTHERS INTERESTED
    Narendra Modi, according to reports coming from India, avoided the kind of identity politics that BBS is focused on. He made a broad case for neoliberal capitalist reforms in Thacherite fashion. This was a contrast to the Congress’outmoded socialist slogans. His appeal was pro-business and never racial and on that basis promised prosperity for all.

      If this is the truth, racial minded sinhala buddhist fanatic MR will definitely have problems between two countries now on. MR´s nature has been – as no secret to the many – telling someting and doing the other way around or just bury them into the carpets- be it with the peace and reconciliation or any other issues within and external affairs, this will remain the same. That has lot do with his hypocrasy based thuggish nature.

      What answeres could MR give if one would raise it:
      a) what has his regime achieved towards the peace between tamils and the other folks since NE candidate is appointed (Sep 2013) ?

      b) What would he respond to Indians and other communities what his next step would be in the line of nearing peace and reconciliation ?

      c) He seems to be visiting only ones that give him a great welcome (e.g Belarus, China, Middleeast)

      d) What would he respond – why the relationship between IC and the island has been shattered as no other times inthe past – and what measures his regime has taken to recover the situation etc ?

      Donkey president will only have to stay silent :(

      Shyamon,

      I never liked Margaret Thatcher and never believe that the average Brit was better off because of her policies.

      On drawing parallels between Thatcher and Modi I have this to say. Thacher did not have to contend with colossal corruption at several levels when she brought about her unpopular reforms. Modi has. When Modi realizes that he is facing brick walls wherever he turns to, I believe that he will unleash his wrath on the hapless Muslims. That way he will still keep his popularity intact.

      I hope your optimism for India under the Modi regime is realized. I for one am quite unconvinced.

    An excellent analysis. It is heartening to note that the Indian voter has become more politically conscious. The pre- 2004 BJP government under Vajpayee had shown the Indian people that they had a viable alternative. It is good that the corrupt Gandhi family, the DMK, Vaiko and the other jokers have been sent packing. Rajapaksa is by no means a comparison to Modi. Bensen

    Mr.Jeyasinghe:

    India’s Modi Wave And Lanka’s Moda (Foolish) Wave.

    Indias Modi wave was a spontaneous reaction of the people revolting against the Corrupt practises of the congress and a positive endorsement of Modis promise of development.
    In Sri Lanka the Moda wave is a symptom of the Current Regime who are morally and financially corrupt with a greed for power.
    If MR ( for that matter Basil and Rambukawella ) has any illusions about Jeyalalitha being able to dictate policies on the Tamil issue in Sri Lanka he will be mistaken.
    Modi has already stated openly that he wants the support of Jeyalalitha and has given her a free hand in Dictating Indian Policy on Sri Lankan Tamil issue.

    “India’s Modi Wave And Lanka’s Moda (Foolish) Wave”

    Mr. Shyamon, You said it all, in a nutshell in the above line and the hideous story in the ensuing account.

    I am looking forward to the Rajiv Gandhi type of time when the Rajapakshas would be dragged by the neck and pressed against the wall where they will poo and pee in their pants.

    The noose is been tightened around the Rajapakse family of jokers. India will give an ultimatum or invade in Ukraine style. MR’s sins and Gota’s sins will catch up with them. See how in 18th century style MR/Gota keeps suppressing the Tamil community. They cannot commemorate their dead or protest for the army troops storm them. How long will this ridiculous state of affairs last? Can’t these idiots see this?

    “I am looking forward to the Rajiv Gandhi type of time when the Rajapakshas would be dragged by the neck and pressed against the wall where they will poo and pee in their pants.”

    Now India does not have its boys (VP podian, LTTE, EROS, EPRLF, TELO, PLOTE and other sundries) to do RAW’s dirty job.

    Perhaps Somawansa and Weerawansa can be enticed into sign a (RAW) deal.

    The Rajapakses have subjugated Sri Lanka and Sri Lankans. They are ruling under a kleptocracy. The Chinaman is backing them. But the new Indian regime will give them a running soon
