For getting the status of an intellectual, the caste, religion, sex, age, language or any other regional or linguistic parameters are not a criteria.
* It is easy to get the status, if you are a Hindu who always criticizes his own religion and sanathana dharma
* Your education qualification, actual intelligence, vocabulary, position, etc do not have any bearing for getting the status.
* You should always be little and denigrate Indian heritage and culture, whenever you get opportunity or even by creating opportunity.
* Always make fun of Hindu dharma and ancient Hindu scholars, saffron colour, Omkar, temples and priests
* You have to make the show that you have the authority to criticize Hindu dharma.
* Try to find a good place in the electronic media screen and print media. Keep a charisma for attracting the media people; give them whatever they need for doing so. Keep the relation with them very strong.
* Tell always the positives about other religion while degrading and denigrating Hindu dharma. * This will give a good image as an ‘impartial and unbiased scholar’
* You will automatically become famous as a true secular leader and gain respect from other other intellectuals.
* You should never quote anything from Indian heritage or ancient Indian books because it is cheap and unscientific to quote indigenous knowledge. Quote always the West, Russian, Chinese or even from Iraq leaders. If you are compelled to quote from India, quote only from Jawaharlal Nehru’s words.
*Use as many quotations as possible from foreign and locals cholars of your status for denigrating Indian heritage and culture. Some good examples are strongly anti Hindu Harvard Sanskrit Professor Michael Witzel, marxist historian Romilla Thapar or Hindu baiter Kancha Iliah.
*Never, never praise the past – present and future India.
* Always share your views with the objective of further degrading our cultural heritage. And remember, tell all the memorable negatives about Hindu dharma so that people will appreciate you secular, rational and scientific vision which can even fetch you some awards.
* Appreciate only foreign scientists and scholars, if possible from the West or communist countries.
* Belittle and denigrate Indian scientific and technological heritage whenever and wherever possible and encourage younger generation to do so.
Always be the first to put the first signature in anti Hindu pro-minority mass memorandum or petition, preferably in presence of the media photographers. * Do not follow law and order; this can get a place in media easily.
*Make sure to tell good about Mother Teresa, Bukari Imam and St Xavier Francis, even though he has destroyed 480 temples and converted thousands of Goan Hindus to Christianity in Goa.
Create an image that you are also aware about what is happening around us. * Make the people aware that you know what are all happening in Iraq, Houston, Iran, Korea, Lanka and also in Mizoram. But never say any negative about Kashmir and Nagaland or the activities of the minorities in those States.
*Tell anything negative about Military or police action in Kashmir or Nagaland making sure that you do not touch anything against minorities.
*Even if you have to say something about minority fundamentalism, say that it is due to majority fundamentalism.
*While delivering lectures to Christians tell that in the next janma you want to be Christian, to the Muslim audience tell that you want to become a Muslim, in the next janma. *Tell them, in your speech that Upanishads and Vedas are taken from Koran and Bible.
*Try to attend ‘all religious meet” as a representative of Hinduism and tell negative about Hinduism. It will be printed in big letters in media. *Learn two or three lines from Koran or Bible and quote appropriately for getting the applause.
*If you want to write a book there are many Christian writers who write about Hinduism, they will help you how to write on the subjects in which you are fully ignorant. * You can start writing against Hinduism first, with their help, so that the marketing is easy and building your career also becomes easy.
*Many churches and Christian agents will help you directly and indirectly for propagating your anti Hindu messages.
*Be in contact with the media people, whenever you are travelling. Build strong relationship with minority leaders during travelling from place to place. This relation will give you enormous credibility as an intellectual and will last for a long time.
In short remember, your success as an intellectual in India is directly proportional to your statements you make against Indian culture, tradition and religion. The more you look down upon it and talk well of minority religions, you will be respected by one and all.
