Bizarre is on the war. So, it is different. The tradition
of logic is trying a different, innovative approach.
Can we see it in the realm of the metaphysical or is it an
experiment in the course of evolution of the ‘science of the supernatural’?
Anyway, Daundia Khera – a village in Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao
district is its symbolism, or has been made its symbolism.
When the news broke, the process was set in motion. After
all, it was going to be a big spectacle.
And within days, the stage was set for the Peepli Live to come
Those who have seen the movie Peepli Live are aware of
what does it mean.
In this case, Daundia Khera is going to be Peepli reincarnated,
or rather, is going to be made ‘Peepli reincarnated’.
And the precursor to set the events in motion is combo of a
living and a dead.
While in Peepli, the participants were aggregates and
segregates of moving, living entities, each one of them.
So, in that sense, the Daundia Khera Live is going to be
one step ahead, more evolved when the ball rolls finally, tomorrow, when the Archaeological
Survey of India starts digging in the non-descript village (not anymore, pardon
me!) to locate the 1000 tonnes of buried gold.
In Peepli, poor logic met with illogic and the story was
In Daundia Khera, logic is collaborating with faith,
something that is beyond the realms of logic in the worldly sense, and
therefore, there are viable chances that history will be made here.
A seer dreams of gold, a huge cache of it. It was also
told that, he, in fact, was approached by the dead king of the 18th century
of that area. The king informed him about the treasure.
The seer, in turn, informed the government of India, knowing
the ill-fiscal health of the country. He, in part, was also, worried by the
government’s efforts to ‘usurp’ gold from the ‘rich’ temples of the country, an
‘expressed’ possibility to contain the crisis of falling Rupee.
The government got easily convinced, and now the ‘scientifically’
trained teams of the Archaeological Survey of India and the Geological Survey
of India are ready for the big task ahead, fully prepared.
Daundia Khera is already hot, but is going to be the
biggest talking point soon, with the media, the polity, the governance and the
whole nation jumping on the bandwagon.
Like it has been happening, as we have seen, in many ‘Peepli
Who cares if India, the world’s fourth largest
economy, is still having the largest share of the hungry of the world – one-fourth
of them, according to the Global Hunger Index (GHI) 2013?
Who cares if India, the world’s largest democracy, tops
the countries with higher proportion of people living in modern-day slavery
conditions (trafficking, child labour, forced marriage, debt and so on) – half
of them, according to the Global Slavery Index 2013.
‘Peepli Lives’ to Daundia Khera Live!
Method in madness! Madness in method!
