The aesthetic merit, the psychic impact, the great art of financial meaning it implies, freedom from want and depravity makes me an ardent admirer of it. I am fascinated by its relationship not only to America, but to the Masons and the Illuminati and its ability to be retained as the most trade-able currency in the World. Yes it powerfully signifies the emergence of a New World order a, cult which makes it laudable as a conspiracy. Is it a coincidence that there are 13 Steps in the unfinished Pyramid.

Ode to Psyche

Tags

,

You ballet as a gentle hymn
On wings of gauze…
Time stops as music on
Your wings; you play
The lyre as a Greek Poetess …
I gaze at you at awe,
So ethereal and enchanting….
You float so easy
In many fluid melodies…
You sculpt space
With atoms of art….
There now, you are
Perched as a monument,
As crystal of sparkling stars…
In flight, you draw yourself
As a deity ….
As tiny whispers
Echoing space….

Kerala can become an independent Country

Tags

The callous indifference shown by the central govt. of India towards Kerala makes me think that’s its high time that Kerala break away from the sanctified union of Indian states and become an independent country. There are many reasons for me to think that my argument is justified. Kerala’s treasury is dry and the State Govt. is finding it difficult to dispense salaries. I feel this is a part of the Hindutva agenda, a conspiracy of the Modi govt. to demoralize and deteriorate a legitimate democratic govt. of Kerala that is democratic. The next Luciferic thing that the central govt. did was to freeze all the accounts of the Kerala cooperative banks. This has put millions of people in jeopardy, especially the poor farmers of Kerala who have their income in cooperative banks. When the ministers of Kerala tried to meet Mr. Modi, the b****** refused to even see them. If Kerala breaks away from the Indian union and becomes an independent country, it can reach the aspirations of a developed country like Singapore. Kerala is very strong in Tourism, IT and its many ports can do business like an advanced country like Singapore. Some people of Kerala are so boorish that they don’t allow an international airport to come in a place called Aranmula. Fortunately I live very close to that place. I imagine I am carrying passport of Kerala. As an independent country with strong Marxist affiliation, Kerala can become a developed country in five years of time. Kerala can become stronger, and economically affluent than its counterpart India. The aim of the Modi govt. is to saffronize India and make it a Hindu country. Modi, is a govt. which disrespects secularism, freedom and democracy. Mr. Modi the cow is not a f****** holy Goddess for me. Mr. Modi, I refuse to pay homage to the Sun by doing Yoga. I am fiercely independent, democratic and liberal. The Marxist govt. of Kerala can do very well and transform Kerala as an independent country as a Shangri-La of the East.

Nauseating Kerala High Court

Tags

, , ,

The Kerala High Court is a pompous, arrogant bastard. It has opened fire from its dragon tongue and induced a draconian policy of closing down liquor outlets within 1500 meters of the main road. Why the f*** is it bothered to do so? The place where I used to buy booze is now closed. The only outlet is now situated in a remote place. When a court ostracizes legitimate democratic rights, it becomes a stinker bum displaying tyranny and autocracy. Drinking is a personal right and freedom of a citizen in a democracy. To relax with a drink after a hard day of work, gives great mental satisfaction. A court’s duty is to be just and fair in interpreting laws. When a court passes draconian decisions like these, it is overstepping its boundaries and making the citizens of a democracy its slaves.

Gothic Sublime

Tags

, , , ,

Gothic literature is sublime and let’s ascertain the reasons for it being so. I would like to use the following paraphernalia for doing it. They are New Criticism, Existentialism, Psychoanalysis, Marxian Criticism, Deconstruction and Feminism.
New Criticism is the analysis of tropes or figures of speech used in literature. The tropes in Gothic Literature bear a semblance of illumination. They dissect the human psyche to portray the storm of inner angst. When we read into the tropes of Gothic Literature we are filled with awe, fixated to a neurotic delirium and we become fascinated with the flux of psychedelic mania. Gothic literature is fanciful, ornamental and hyperbolic. There is a tendency to portray the supernatural realm through the lens of being human. The pathetic dilemma of human condition is portrayed vividly through using neurotic and psychotic features.

Viewing it through the prism of existential literature, the first prominent feature that is highlighted is angst. Most characters undergo an extreme angst that transcends to a manifestation of neurosis or psychosis. Edgar Allan Poe is a master of portraying psychological torment. There is a tendency to overcome societal norms and showcase characters with violent criminal behavior. Using Sartre’s term, the characters exhibit a being- in- itself syndrome and project their ego to annihilate the other’s subjective postures. Thus characters encounter nothingness with reality and use their freedom to egotistical excess.

Psychoanalytically speaking we can use the famous term of Lacan: the gaze. The gaze is violent, pathetic, neurotic and psychotic. There is a romantic elevation of the psyche to dizzying levels of melancholia. All Gothic characters are lunatic psyches with a tendency to usurp the existing synthesis of being democratically tuned to a society’s ethos. The ID is elevated, the ego is defied and the superego is violated. There is a tendency to be in the reverse tangle of despondent romanticism. The characters are either psychotic or neurotic or both. Murder is justified with the luminal space of being egotistically sadistic.

A Marxian critic would look at the Gothic as being productive enterprise of the bourgeoisie. The sole aim of the Gothic is to produce a pleasurable catharsis. The reader is fantastically transmitted into the world of the sublime where it’s the aim of the bourgeoisie to keep the proletariat satisfied. The means of producing literature are gratified with the excess of capitalistic profit. For a Marxian critic, the Gothic is an out-of-place reality, a genre where the interests of the working class are negated.
Looking at it through the ideas of deconstruction, one would understand the binary divide of characters. For example, in Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, the monstrous element becomes the grotesque, ugly and portrayed with pathos of being psychotically disturbed. This is a symptom of Binary Divide, an escape from the reality of being clinically sane. Democratic norms are subverted to justify the colonialism of the psyche. Tyranny of the mind reigns high and becomes the threshold of the DNA ladder of the Binary divide. The book becomes the centre of psychological gratification in one sense and in another, feasible appetizer for psychological gratification.

From a Feminist point of view, the archetypes are masculine, and having the qualities of being misogynists. There is no gaze of the feminine. The characters are psychological machos caught in the throes of violence and murder.

The Dishonest Pastor

Tags

, ,

He achieved notorious fame as a prophet. In one house he prophesied to the mistress of the house: ‘dig at the foot of the Jack fruit tree; there’s a hidden amulet; your neighbor has done black magic against you’. And it turned out to be true. He was rewarded with rich financial benefits. What happened in reality is an irony. The pastor was friendly with the maid of the house and used her help to bury the same under the foot of the Jack Fruit tree.

Abstract

,

The sky is growling now;
The clouds have become
Dark and angry…
Pink rays are furious
And run madly to and fro…
It’s pouring now,
Streams of a celestial gift
Falling into the conscience
Of the earth ….
Wetting her loins
As a sacred hymn ….
The green carpet of
The earth is wet…
Sighing an erotic
Grunt a medley
That echoes like
A valley in a dream.
