Babu Ram's Babbling Rant

It seems that blogdai and everyone else at blogger.com was unable to edit or respond over the last 24 hours. All is better now, apparently, so post away! -=blogdai
Blogdai will offer a prize to anyone who can decipher anything cogent from what appears to be an authentic Babu Ram Bhattari rant http://www.countercurrents.org/nepal-bhattarai230305.htm. All I can see is that he somehow finds brilliant cultural similarities with revolutionary France and Nepal's poor villagers, with countless uses of the word "proletariat" thrown in to make him feel erudite. The most I can gather is that old Babu is a wounded puppy lashing out to whomever will listen. In the entire history of the maoist movement, we have not witnessed such a long and disjointed diatribe, so this must signify something relevant. Forget that there is no real content. Babu, being the limelight-craving soul that he is, just wants to be heard!
It's no wonder they threw him out of the Maoists: no one can understand him. His pattern is predictable though; sparsely-punctuated ideological nonsense has always been the priveledge of leaders with no political or moral mandate. Can you blame the King (no this is not another royalist pander) for not sitting down for peace talks with the Maoists if this blabbering idiot Bhattari represents the apex of Maoist thought and intellect? Is this the best the Maoists can do?
Maybe we should all be grateful that Prachanda hasn't come forward as well.
Blogdai has it on good information that the Maobadis are in the process of calling for another series of peace talks very shortly. Can't image who they would use. They first need to find someone who speaks in clear, complete sentences, which may just be an insurmountable task.
Now that old man Girija has been let out of the slammer (so much for Sujata's murder conspiracy theory) watch for the Maoists to solicit him as broker. Koirala knows nothing of debate and compromise- only agitation- so he should feel right at home representing the maoists in any future peace talks.
