Money always leaves trail: And don’t you think this government is sitting on its bum
In the midst of the outrage over the insurrection by so-called "farmers" in Delhi on Republic Day are some simple facts which tend to get covered up as binaries and reactions to social media posts take over. Here are a few.
1) Washington DC, Moscow, Paris, Seoul, Hong Kong and more, what do they have in common with Delhi? They are large cities, country capitals or otherwise important, and facing mob violence of unprecedented levels usually associated with banana republics.
2) Over-crowding, climate change, financial struggles and more. But the core reason appears to be manipulation of the human mind, whether by propaganda, mind-bending, subliminal control or perception management.
3) In India's case, the good that is happening in different parts of India, especially Southern Peninsula, Coastal and North-East, is being ignored whilst issues in and around the feudal Gangetic belt are getting top of mind space.
4) Visuals of police personnel who have been ordered not to respond being attacked do not reveal the solid slog work going on in the background to track and neutralise the real money and financiers behind the insurrection.
5) Most importantly, a turban on a head with a beard, does not make a homogeneous community. As any Punjabi speaking person may tell you, the fault-lines now run deep, and extend to beyond India. Especially in Anglo-Saxon countries like the US, Canada, UK and Australia-New Zealand.
One small example - ownership of farm equipment in Punjab used to be almost a monopoly of a dominant group. This has changed a lot in the last 20 years or so. In addition, the app-based sharing of agricultural machinery, has rendered idle a lot of the assets lying with the dominant community. Where do you think so many surplus tractors landed up in Delhi from? (Below is the image of tractor sales in different states of the country in 2019-2020 financial year).
Another example - the Punjabi farmer diaspora extends to the rest of India also. Do you see or hear anything from them? There are many reasons for this also.
The moneybags behind the insurrection are being tracked and as I write this, are also losing sleep - while youngsters being misled by a singer here and a hoodlum there will return to their villages and towns.
It is wrong to blame one community for what happened. It is also not a binary. The solutions - and also the cause - are in the fiduciary reasons being re-aligned. And the dominant groups simply do not like this.
Whether it is parking contracts in Australia or fields full of lentils in Canada - failing economies abroad are having a ripple effect in India.
But there is one thing the trouble-makers abroad forget.
India is now amongst the top 3 Nations in the world in what is known as "lawful interception" technology.
Slow and steady, with slogwork involved, money always leaves footprints.
And notices are being plastered on their doors.
Veeresh Malik was a seafarer. And a lot more besides. A decade in facial biometrics, which took him into the world of finance, gaming, preventive defence and money laundering before the subliminal mind management technology blew his brains out. His romance with the media endures since 1994, duly responded by Outlook, among others.
A survivor of two brain-strokes, triggered by a ship explosion in the 70s, Veeresh moved beyond fear decades ago.
