Anwar Jahan Zuberi:Who?

Anwar Jahan Zuberi, the vice-chancellor of the University of Calicut is an obscure academic, if at all. Nobody seems to know what academic credentials fetched her the vice-chancellorship. I have always wondered why Prof. Zuberi was chosen to the post of vice-chancellor of the University of Calicut. Now, after a few years of her vice-chancellorship it is more than clear to any unbiased observer. Media have said enough on that.

Blather Land

(Aka Pwnd in Poetry)

Inspired by muse and of course poesy

When my cohorts scratch my back
we start fun and speak goddamn bullshit
I get turned on
As I inspect whether the cuckoo pwned me and horned me

When my spouse kicks my ass
To make me squeal about my flings
I feel a stinging pain in my behind and try hold my tongue
And roll on the floor in a freeballing twirl
And feel world's heat in my posteriors

The saucy tart slaps me tight
My follies did include the worst prank
Those who lost their nuts
got undressed and wore their horns proper
Getting ready for the first flash of mooning

The bastards who ask for their MILk land
Would be taken to our poet's den
And served parippuvada
And called "darlings"
Then they would be patted on the breasts.
Without fear and trembling
They would turn red, falling for the mom.

In the end we would all wear horns
Cuckolds and cockroaches eat stale meat

A wannabee പു ക സ poem

parippuvada പരിപ്പുവട  is a spicy  comfort food item
V K N, an arch-knave of  Malayalam bawdy literature vaguely hints that this comfort food could turn very uncomfortable in certain situations. The following couplet in one of his notorious novelettes called Hajiar, is a sublimation of parippuvada.
ചെക്കനിക്കു പരിപ്പുവട കൊടുക്കല്ലേ മക്കാനിക്കാ
ചെക്കനിക്കു ലഡ്ഡുകൊടുക്കിന്‍
Later I chanced upon the poet's own translation of the poem called Motherland on the poet's website. I would call this a മുട്ടായിവെടിക്കവിത (sugar-candy-gunfire poem). The mix of sickeningly sugary sentiments and horror and gore is typical of a pathetic sensibility made to order according to party dictates. The poet is a pathetic addition to the flock of  revolutionary (à la CPI(M)) poets.

"Living as of Sindhu Joy"

Did you know that "Sindhu Joy’s updates" had graduated into being “Dr.Sindhu joy's updates”? Our media took their daily dose of perversion on that, too. I pity this girl, verily.

This is not a caricature of her, nor is it a character sketch. The voyeuristic Media is so fond of her and always on the prowl for every move she makes. The latest in the series is her doctoral thesis.

Her new-fangled doctorship hasn't done anything to her joyous naivete (innocence) that expresses itself as "An alter in the living as of Sindhu Joy towards Dr Sindhu Joy" or when she speaks of her new born niece as My new-fangled niece Elaina.

Reading her posts I feel that she might not be illiterate in the simple way as one might be tempted to believe. Maybe, her notion of language is different?  When I saw "An alter in the living as of Sindhu Joy towards Dr Sindhu Joy the first thought I had was that she was  talking about some sort of sacrifice on some sort of altar [the commie idea of the exalted self] in a new-fangled  theoretical tongue she acquired in the process of her "graduation into Dr Sindhu Joy".

A Mathrhubhumi report the other day said that her thesis was returned by an expert for corrections which was then sent to another expert who evaluated it and recommended for her doctroship. The second expert probably was able to tune himself/herself with the extra-ordinary psycholinguistics of Ms Joy.

I wish she never parted with her merry naivete that makes for her "life as of Sindhu Joy" (henceforth Dr. Sindhu Joy) and that renders each phrasing she turns out a gem. If she had won the election, she would have made a  brilliant parliamentary career with her wonderful phrase making skills. The loss is ours. I wish she met with more Joy in her life through the fulfillment of her innocent simple wishes like:

"most of my friends and family members are saying that my new born niece ELAINA will pursue my pathway and she will come up to politics"

Let her niece pursue Ms Joy's pathway and bring never-ending Joy to her life.

However, I cannot but express my disappointment at her disabling comments on her blog which is not in keeping with the spirit of the recent DYFI resolution on cyberspace interventions. I urge her to undo this mistake at the earliest. She would also greatly further her cause, if she she published at least parts of her doctoral thesis on her blog.
