Game of Chess and Secularism...Elementary, my dear Watson,
I must figure out what the hell is this ‘secularism’. The word ‘secularism’ is a magic word or so it seems, at least in the Indian context. It is magical because that word has helped Nehru-Gandhi dynasty to lord over a billion gullible people and the largest loot-able coffers of the world.
My love for the game of chess helped me clearly understand what ‘secularism’ is, who needs it and who does not.
Europe needed secularism because their chess board has four bishops meddling into affairs of state and where two queens calling the shots. King was made into an almost tottering imbecile, immobile idiot by queens.
India hardly needed secularism because in Indian Chaturang (Chess) there are neither bishops or Hindu clergy nor wives of kings meddling in the affairs of state. King here abides by the advice of his appointed commander in Chief.
Elementary, my dear Watson.
