Anti globalization aunties

Globalization, liberalization and free markets have given rise to a new creature in India. I cant think of single name for this species, hence anti globalization aunties, but I can offer a few tips for recognising them.

They can be recognised by their dark imported glasses, tinted windows of their airconditioned cars made with foreign colloboration (no Indicas for them), the latest phoren cosmetics making them smell to a bee as a confused garden in disguise, sharply observing slums at a traffic signal, aghast, "Indias poverty has increased, these slums have not gone since 1991, ergo, they became poor after 1991. And besides, it is so dark even after liberalization."

Anti globalization aunties have good international contacts (thanks to globalization) that they contact over the internet and email (unlimited broadband- good no?) and can wax passionate about poverty (or wildlife, despite having a house bang in the middle of some sanctuary) in India and how free markets have increased poverty while collecting their dollars for an anti free market piece. All for a good cause after all, until the next dollar laden cause.

AGAs stay in airconditioned houses, some of which may overlook slums. Those slums have been there despite free markets for 14 years, they croon, even as they take up cudgels for socialism once again (dollar paying magazines only please).

At other time, while sipping their cocktails, they say, "What, oh what is there is in this lifestyle, only malls and multiplexes, when the people outside have not improved", while adjusting the AC just a wee bit so that the dust from the outside world doesnt infiltrate their high rise.

And I could go on and on...

For these aunties, socialism or poverty is a theme for socializing. Bingo Neel...Good post

Best illustration of this is the role of Simmi Garewal in Namaharam, a movie starring Amitabh Bacchan as a son of a wealthy factory owner.

Thanks for all those comments. Just a small aside though, anti globalisation aunties is just an epithet, it includes a lot of uncles as well, only it did not sound as good while writing :)

wanderer said...

And best example of this looks to me as Arundhati Roy and Shabana Azmi.

Was wondering why you had so much of hatred for these uncles and aunties.......is it for their cause or for their attire? if it is the way they carry themslevs, you wouldnt have bothered to notice it and write about it. I guess it is the cause that irritates you, though you were waxing more abuot their lifestyles........what do you think of globalization?

The previous anonymous misses the point of the post. Neelakantan is pointing out their hipocracy. It doesn't mean he has a searing hate for them. The anti-globalization people tend to not understand economics and make bad conclusions about what they see in the world. I think a lot of the anit-global people struggle with their existence and find purpose by protesting against something that appears to be impure, though they can't understand the dynamics of how the world works around them.

Hi,
It's the first time I read this blog, and I think it's great. But I'm afraid I have to tell you we also have that "plague" here in Europe. Not just aunties, also uncles, sons, daughters...
Hope that facts will make them shut up soon...

Are we getting to the theme of 80s era movies? Rich villian, oblivious to the apathy of those around him/her?
