(Maoist chairman Prachanda and Vikashananda during the inauguration program of a new building of Manokranti Matrix in Godawari. March 9, 2008)
I have never played Boxing – but I can imagine how a boxer might feel like when, out of a sudden and out of a freaking blue – you receive a sucker punch that knocks you out cold for good.
THIS was the “sucker punch” move (almost) perfectly executed by Vikashananda on the Nepali media. Wait, plan and execute. Ingenious!
He managed to pull some well designed farce though – he performed meditation, he laughed, he cried, – as our leader Prachanda was addressing the gathering of Manokranti Warriors.
Mr Vikashananda must have been planning this after a humiliating “defeat” with the media. His plan, however did not well work as he might have expected. He must have imagined the “news coverage” in a proportion as large a scale as the man he invited.
Unfortunately, the sucker punch failed.
Anyways, here are a couple of the excerpts from his speech and some pictures taken by Dipesh.
You used guns as a weapon for your revolution; we used the weapon we had for our revolution – some just saw bare asses but that was a sign of revolution for us. (When Prachanda inquired about the Naked Protest)
Ramdev has to be charged of “spiritual encroachment”.
Oh poor baby, don’t cry, don’t cry — shhh shhh!
