Lies and Hate: Origins

Vampire Owl: Greetings, my dear vampire apprentices. I know that you hate to come for the classes on the day after a holiday, but you had to arrive today because we are lagging in studies and this syllabus has to be completed before the Pooja holidays with another set ready to be finished before Christmas holidays. I have absolutely no idea how to do it, but I will explain the longest chapter of the book right now; it is about humans and their hate. It has facts about how, why and when they lie and also about the origins of their terrible attitude towards their fellow human beings which puts even the ultimate evil werewolves to shame.

Vampire Crow: Is this more like an origin story which the superheroes get? I have often heard that “hate” is a superpower that the humans have managed to achieve by centuries of hating each other citing different reasons.

Vampire Owl: Yes, it is true. We can call it The Human Lies and Hate: Origins. May be we can even start a television series on it and then the programme can go on and on for a long time because there is so much material on the same.

Vampire Hamster: Excuse me sir, but were they bitten by a radioactive spider or did they escape from another planet before it was destroyed?

Vampire Owl: Absolutely not. They are from this planet only, which is a case of depression and extreme sadness. Mother Earth often complains to us about the same. Once she said that she will even jump into a black hole to get rid of these humans of hate.

Vampire Raven: We can’t wait to hear the origin story then!

Vampire Owl: Okay. This story starts long ago in a cave with a few cavemen and women. There was this guy who used to sing so well. One day, a girl told the others that she didn’t like the song. A fat man smashed her on the skull with a club screaming that it is an insult to the person and she died instantly. It is the case of the first fan in the world, and this fat guy is the representation of all the fans who exist these days with no concern for the others, only living to hate for the sake of their favourite celebrity. This is the hate which they carried over to many other aspects of life.

Vampire Alligator: So, the celebrity worship already existed at that time and has been the mother of all hate, long before religion.

Vampire Owl: Yes, of course. Often, religion also degrades itself to some celebrity worship instead of developing a personal relationship with God. The only thing that the fans have always worried about is on how to hate everyone for one person whom they haven’t met in real life. The truth has always been that this celebrity will never really meet these fans and neither will be they ask for their services.

Vampire Crow: But still, shouldn’t these celebrities be held responsible for the actions of these fans because if they were better people in control of their admirers in a sensible manner, their fans could have had more sense?

Vampire Owl: I would consider such a thing a lot necessary, especially when fans resort to so much nonsense in their names. If these celebrities had honour, it would have carried on to the fans. It is the celebrity who is often reflected on his or her fans, and it is clear that they like to have people under them who worships and respects. Celebrities mostly don’t believe in equality; otherwise they would have controlled their fans up-to an extent. They look down upon the normal person.

Vampire Raven: I would say that we should get rid of the celebrities in the human world and establish the state of equality there.

Vampire Owl: We are not authorized to do that. We could still put some light into the brains of blind fans, but unfortunately, they are filled with this pure fan trash. The only thing they can do in reply to a review is to keep saying how awesome their favourite stars are. Unfortunately for them, people with brains don’t care. If a character in a movie or television series is talked about, they will instantly say that the celebrity is the greatest performer of all time and so he or she has done very well in this work too. Otherwise, they will come with the cliche statements that “I think he/she has done better than everyone else because she has acted more and has experience” and “I don’t understand why you didn’t like the amazing performance”. A better question would have been about why people have opinions. Their last weapon is abuse which they use when all the brain cells are dead. These mostly arise from the fact that they know that their favourite actor/actress is not really good, and they have to prove it with lies.

Vampire Alligator: Humans hating humans for some strange celebrity who is known at one part of the world and is unknown somewhere else – it is a strange world. I still don’t get why humans have to become fans of other humans when all humans should be equal. I also don’t get why the fans keep trying to impose their opinion on others. I thought human life was in a free world where there was freedom of opinion. These fans can’t even accept a workas what it is, and the actors as characters. The only thing that matters to them are related to what is written about their celebrities about which no person with common sense cares about.

Vampire Owl: Yes, the truth is that for people with intelligence, for what matters is just what is shown on the screen, and not who these actors and actresses are. The human fans are real curse on the universe, and all the wars in the human world were fought by the fans. These miserable fans have killed because of being fans to their race, religion, language, caste and many others. It is because they are the fans of these things and when someone else comes with an opinion which is not close to this, they go for hate and war. All the human problems were always caused by the blind fans.

Vampire Crow: It is a surprise that they still exist. The celebrity fans are the worst kind. All other fans mostly got some better cause.

Vampire Owl: Yes. Please be careful when going to the human world. There are too many fans who can’t understand the meaning of opinion. Last time I talked to one, he asked me “What is an opinion? We don’t appreciate it. Don’t you know that she is the greatest actress of all time? She will never get an award. But awards are for dummies. That is all which you need to know”. You can note that down.

Harthal: Kerala’s Purge

I don’t know how many of you have watched the movie The Purge, and its sequel The Purge: Anarchy. None of these two movies actually released here, and so it is not possible that it did actually make the point for the audience here. But The Purge is a movie that should be watched, at least by people at this part of the world. This is a movie that needs attention and provides some interesting thoughts.

In the movie, what they call the Purge as an event in the future United States. During the time period of 7:00 PM on March 21st to 7:00 AM on March 22nd, the twelve hours become a different time period. It is the time when all kinds of crime becomes legal. It only says that no government official of a high rank is to be harmed, and big weapons are not to be used. People stay inside their houses. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

The United States is yet to know the Purge outside the movie. But we know a lower level of the same, and it is called Harthal. Yes, Bandh has been banned, and so we have Harthal which we celebrate as Bandh and do the same things. There was a time when Harthal was not much of a big deal, but now it is Bandh. The name changes, and if Harthal is banned, may be we can call it the Purge, I guess.

So the Purge seems to allow getting rid of those negative emotions. Kerala has had a lot of that event, even as it has been less in number in the last few months. But what is more surprising is what it has to do with the common men if a party wants something. Why is it that they trouble the common man and destroy property if the common man is not their enemy? Why do they shut down the common man’s opportunity to live and earn? Why do they bother people from other states and cause trouble to them as well as the foreigners?

If they are protesting against their party members being attacked/arrested or needing the resignation of a minister from the other party, why are they not protesting at the right place where it matters? What did the common man ever do to them other than giving them votes? Is it like give us votes and we will give you Harthal in return? Don’t we have too many holidays already? Does bothering the citizens of India come naturally to them? Why the use of violence? All political parties should think about this.

The harthal against petrol and diesel price hike is even a bigger surprise. By not allowing people to travel on one day, they seems to save the fuel as well as money. Does that change anything? May be it does – there is one more holiday on the calendar. May be they should declare it as a festival and fix a day for it every month so that people can known a lot earlier and prepare much better. After all, there is some protest going on all the time. Yes, people might support if you ask them nicely, and let them make the decision after providing enough reasons, instead of declaring and forcing it yourselves.

The Purge is not so different from the Harthal even as we have not turned that evil yet. We are doing our little Purges with Harthal, as we are not that evil yet. There are stones being thrown at vechicles and tyres being punctured during most of the Harthals. There are worse incidents known to happen, but lets stop this someday and not go in the path of The Purge. After all, we are educated people and lets not waste the cent percent literacy rate that we have gained. Protests are needed, but is the Harthal a necessity? Aren’t political parties responsible to the common man too?

The Great Vampire Pimple

Count Dracula was ready to deliver the much awaited sermons ‘To Drink or Not to Drink Blood from Humans With Cholesterol‘ and ‘How to Drink from Drunk People‘ when he saw the little pimple on the right side of his cheek, and got his attention again on another one on the left of his nose. He waited for twenty four seconds in memory of the twenty four thousand and twenty four people he had drunk blood from, and screamed “Mayday; vampire mayday”.

Vampire Bat, Vampire Owl, Vampire Penguin, Vampire Panda and Vampire Crocodile came in at the same speed, and hit Dracula dropping them all on the floor with the Panda on the top.

“Get off, you fake vampire Panda. We all know that you are just the Kungfu Panda faking to be the Vampire Panda” yelled the Vampire Owl.

“This is all your fault, Vampire Crocodile. My bones are breaking. What have you been eating?” asked the Vampire Penguin.

“I am the one who said mayday. So can I be saved first before arguing, please?” asked Count Dracula.

“Yes, your honour, Lord, legend, and everything else about which neither we or you have no knowledge about. Sir Dracul” greeted the team.

“My dear vampires of the world. I stand before you, weak and unable to control this evil which has forced itself upon me. This has never happened in the past, and as you know that I am very old, there is a chance that such a thing has never happened to a vampire” announced Count Dracula.

“What is it exactly? I don’t see anything” remarked the Vampire Penguin.

“You see my face? This is what happened” said Dracula, pointing to the pimples.

“Holy Vampire Chronicles” screamed the Vampire Crocodile.

“I doubt that this is an evil plot by the humans. May be they have used the genetic research to unleash an evil virus on us which can lead to the end of our kind. They are training special mutant soldiers whom they call the scientists” said the Vampire Panda.

“Can you live with it?” asked the Vampire Bat.

“No, I can’t. It is draining my confidence and feeding on my vampiric abilities. It is a lot like a parasite sucking my energy. I can’t even transform into potato chips now” complained a sad Dracula.

“Holy Vampire Coffins” screamed the Vampire Crocodile.

“May be we can postpone the program and you can use this Garnier Pure Active Neem so that you will get better” the Vampire Bat came up with the opinion.

“Yes, do it please. Tell them that I have been called by the Vampire Secret Service on a mission to save the world from a zombie apocalypse” said Dracula as he kick-started the vampire chariot.

“All vampires disperse and spread the news” proclaimed the Vampire Bat, as the meeting ended.

The Vampire Cat and the Vampire Crow were sent to the members of the community with information about the next possible date of the sermon, and a packet of Garnier Pure Active Neem was also sent to each one of them to make sure that nobody gets pimples anymore. The Vampire Penguin decided to stay and wait for the next occasion.
