A Request to Marxist Mouth Piece – Please do not try to mislead your readers in basic arithmetic

published on March 13, 2010

Deshabhimani columnist, RS Babu’s headline screams in astonishment asking ‘bhagawatinu padapujayo’ (worshipping Bhagawat’s feet?).  But what looks ludicrous and apparently forcing a reader to surmise over the Marxist columnist’s basic arithmetical  knowledge is the numbers he has detailed out in his article.  Arguably, poor columnist, he cannot afford to mention the actual figure of 1 lakh swayamsewaks and 50,000 sympathizers.  If he ever dares to speak out the truth, he would be kicked out from his job in Deshabhimani.  So he has to lie.  But the columnist, after breathing so much of fire and brimstone, makes a mockery of an ordinary reader’s arithmetical ability and logical thinking.  He argues that if the number of buses were 4,000, the participants were a mere 25,000.  Even a second standard student knows that a bus, when hired for a programme like the one held at Kollam, would be filled with people to its maximum seating capacity.  Our Deshabhimani columnist like the proverbial cat, which drinks milk with its eyes closed, estimates the number of people, who reached Kollam Sanghik, to 25,000.  So he means less than 7 people travelled in each of the 4,000 buses!  It is better not to comment any further on the columnist, Mr.RS Babu’s reasoning.

Last, but not the least, a small request to the sole custodians of secularism like Deshabhimani:  Please do not try to mislead your readers in basic arithmetic.
