Kumar Vishwas is a ‘very handsome’ politician/poet from Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh. His website is adorned with many photos of him that would give professional male models and film stars a run for their money. His poetry is even better. I read a couple of them and what caught my eye was not the quality of his poetic abominations but the way he constantly reassures his identity as a poet. If you have the time to go through some of his interviews or youtube videos, you might be able to see that Mr. Vishwas keeps on asserting that he is actually a poet. I have never seen such shameless self-publicity anywhere… even in third rate writers of cheap magazines who consider themselves ‘journalists.’
Why I would waste a bit of a space on my blog to this man, who inherits disgusting racist views from his misunderstanding that he originates from a better racial ancestry, is because of his recent remarks on Malayali Nurses. According to him, the sight of ‘dark/yellow’ Malayali Nurses would force Men only to consider them as ‘sisters’. Apparently, he adores the fact that there are a wider variety of Nurses available from North India and they are absolutely glamorous. Clearly, his idea of nurses are drastically different from all others. He probably expects to get a hard on when a nurse approaches him for medical purposes. Such devious minds were clearly at work in the numerous rape cases that happened, and is continuing to happen, in areas that are not very far from Mr. Vishwas’ hometown.
I wasn’t shocked to hear this coming from someone from the cow belt of India. Understandably, standards are quite low in that part of the country. Mobs rule the townships, the Police have little authority over matters relating to law and order, most people are barbaric and uncivilized in nature… even people from higher standards of society revels in misconceptions and petty glamour! It is a common notion that anything and everything can be bought with money. Naturally, a product of such cultural circumstances can only make statements like this.
What agitates me about this whole episode is his low opinion about women. That, even nurses are objects of pleasure for this ‘poet’ is something that amazes me. ‘Indian By Blood’, ‘Poet By Choice’, and ‘Motivator By Gods’ Grace’ is how he has termed himself in his own website. How would someone of this inferior attitude call himself an ‘Indian’? In my opinion, people like this and their mere existence are belittling the ‘pride’ that one may feel to be of India. Let’s not talk about his poetic capabilities. I do not trouble myself with Hindi unless I am pushed to the brink. I have tried my hand on reading from almost all the literatures from India and Hindi Literature has never impressed me. Also, I don’t think Mr. Vishwas is not someone you should consider if you are attempting to see if anything has changed in Hindi Literature. How on earth can someone of such poor intellect consider himself a ‘motivator?’
I would really like to know how many people were motivated by his cheap racial slur.
As I understand, Mr. Vishwas is planning to contest in Amethi, against none other than Rahul Gandhi. All these years, I was wondering what would be the biggest humiliation for the Gandhi scion and now I got the answer. The fact that the young Gandhi has to contest and campaign against a lowlife like Kumar Vishwas would be undoubtedly an unmatched humiliation for the one touted by the Congress as India’s future PM.
P.S: I should admit that I’m sort of impressed by his self-belief. If he has a problem with how others look, he must think of himself as a very handsome man, superior-looking than all others around him. I wonder what he sees when he looks in the mirror.
