Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly getting married in Rajasthan next month in a Hindu ceremony, complete with sacred mantras and vedic chants. This comes close on the heels of Julia Roberts converting to Hinduism a couple of months ago. So the tradition of Westerners coming to India for spiritual guidance and nourishment continues — remember the Beatles landing in Rishikesh at an ashram? This should be a matter of pride for all Indians because it shows the pull and magnetism of our ancient culture that is alive and kicking even after six thousand years. There must be something powerful and eternal at its core for it to have survived so long when the Romans, the Greeks and the Persians are long gone.
That is why I got angry at reading this tripe by an Indian settled in the UK. The man reminds Angelina and Pitt not to “forget the reality of India” when they get married there. The turd — who answers to the call of Nirpal Dhaliwal — seems the Indian version of the House Negro, and mimicks the contempt of the Westerners for all things Indian despite being an Indian himself. Here is a gem from his (F)article:
Like Russell Brand and Katy Perry, Liz Hurley and Arun Nayar, they can’t resist the magic of an Indian wedding.
But while westerners are spellbound by the sight of the beautifully adorned and painted bride as she demurely steps around the sacred flame, do they understand the unspoken logic behind all this perfection?
Given that she’ll probably spend the rest of her life sexually unfulfilled and living subserviently with her in-laws, it’s only fair to make a gigantic fuss of the poor girl on her big day. Western women may love the exquisite rituals of a traditional Indian wedding but they’d never stand for a traditional Indian marriage.
I thought coolies like this chap used to exist only during the Raj days, but I was clearly mistaken. The Western elite even today has many such Indians on their payrolls to show the uppity brown natives their place. It is simply the strategy of “hire a native to bark at other natives,” and many Indians are willing to offer themselves for hire in return for success and merger in Western societies.
