Sagarika Ghose is not a journalist, she is a cautionary tale

Nehru fangirl Sagarika Ghose, who masquerades as a journalist, today again went singing accolades for Nehru for allegedly being the architect of modern India.

Following Prime Minister Modi’s digs at Nehru-Gandhi dynasty in the Lok Sabha yesterday, Ghose came to defend her ‘rockstar’ to credit him with all things he has ‘nurtured’ in India till now. Ghose’s worship for Nehru isn’t a secret.

She has even credited Nehru for not wanting dynasty rule in India, even as India has been ruled by his dynasty for decades.

But she has time and again credited Nehru for creating the institutes of higher education, without which, India would’ve been full of ‘gaushalas’, because everyone knows that the Indian ‘unwashed masses’ had to be ‘civilized’ by Nehru.

Gaushala is a creative euphemism Ghose uses for ‘Hindutva’.

Her fear of anything that could remotely identify herself as a Hindu (as against disciple of Church of Nehru) is so deep-rooted that she even refers to the saffron in Indian Tricolour as “orange”.

But like every other stupidity that gets called out on Twitter, this too got called out.

She got reminded how even before the IITs came up, a Hindu Mahasabha member, Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya, had set up Banaras Hindu University, as Banaras Engineering College back in 1916.

And other institutes of higher education.

Not just that, she even got reminded of the historical centres for education in India, which precede Nehru by centuries.

She was schooled that ISRO was also founded five years after Nehru died.

To which she immediately said how if not for Nehru and his love for science, we would have had only temples as ‘gaumutra processing units’.

While we are not sure what is wrong in having temples, Ghose’s backflip on science and technology and IITs when it comes to The Family is amusing. Back in 2002, she had referred to Dr Kalam as “Bomb Daddy”.

Back in 2002, she didn’t even hold IITs in high regard.

Sexism aside, Ghose even believed science creates an ‘orthodox and extremist mentality’.

Ghose’s conflicting views on the same topic while attacking ‘Bomb Daddy’ and ‘Rockstar’ makes a good case for what it looks like to be a propagandist in a journalist’s hide.
