INDIA is supposed to be the biggest democracy in the world with its population of 1.3 billion people and an elected government.  Its IT industry which needs logical thinking minds at its core which thrives on the work force of millions of highly educated young Indians is the biggest in the world with a turn over of USD 20 Billion.

Why is it then people, who have no track record of generating national wealth of even one rupee, are able to hold India to ransom by the farce of self denial of food? A farce    India should be truly ashamed of because pathetic emaciated human carcasses nearly dying of hunger stalk the busy streets of its cities, completely ignored by its speeding upward class.

Mahatma Gandhi invented fasting as a tool to fight against a cause; to send the British occupiers back home. He knew that he can get  millions of hungry people to realise fasting can kill the only leader  they have to stand up to the British and they have no choice but to stand behind him. But even he discovered its limitation when it took several days of fasting before a national indebtedness towards him for getting rid of the British, just about worked to stop the sparring Hindus and Muslims and bring about a feeble truce. 

But none of the  declarations to fast which have been recently made in fast succession, including the latest one by the Gujarat Chief Minister Modi seemed to be worthy of a death by  food deprivation, in a country where people die of hunger as a routine and least of all worthy of causes like the one stated by Modi.

"The mission is to unite, not divide. Gujarat is my family, the six crore Gujaratis' happiness and grief, dreams and aspirations is mine”

What makes the farce  of fasts even more despicable is the fact that they are merely motivated by easy publicity abetted by topic hungry media who is willing to put up any story as long as they get the eye balls and ratings and conducted with exorbitant five star comforts and security to get maximum footage for the event.

But the real danger seems to the creeping in of hidden fascist elements in the whole process. Gandhi’s  fast had not even a remote semblance to the fascist elements  which seem to be the driving force behind  the fasting farce of post Gandhi era.

Whether it is an ex military truck driver who runs a village through its own court where whipping by an army belt may be the right punishment or a physical Guru who is an epitome of manly strength and wants to build an army of armed supports but had to be whisked away from Police in a woman’s garb by women or a chief minister who had to be reminded by the country’s prime minister that he can’t act Like A Nero in a burring Rome, it looks like there are serious and disturbing fascist strains in the veins of the  proponents of modern fasting In India.

The definition fascism include:
 radical, authoritarian nationalist political ideology  that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation through indoctrination, physical education, to purge forces, ideas, people, and systems deemed to be the cause of decadence and degeneration, and to produce their nation's rebirth based on commitment to the national community based on organic unity, in which individuals are bound together by suprapersonal connections of ancestry, culture, and blood.”

It may be worthwhile to examine   which of these characteristics fit each of them
