Software developed to automatically write articles on Narendra Modi | Faking News
Allahabad. A 19-year-old student from IIIT (Indian Institute of Information Technology) here has claimed to develop a software that can come up with news and opinion articles on Narendra Modi with a mouse click.
â€œI have been an internet troll and have trolled on every topic,â€ Ranjit Prasad, the third-year student proudly told Faking News how he got the idea to develop the software, â€œAfter 3 years of full-time trolling and part-time studies, I finally concluded that anything related to Narendra Modi trends on the internet instantly.â€
There is no upper cap on the number of articles a website can publish on Modi
â€œPeople feel duty bound to express opinion on Modi and media organizations work against killing deadlines to come up with reports on Modi. I could see a huge demand for Narendra Modi based articles,â€ the developer of NaMoPad application claimed.
NaMoPad â€“ the software can meet this demand, Ranjit claims. All one needs to do is to feed in some keywords and indicate world count, and a grammatically correct article on Narendra Modi will be ready for publication within seconds.
â€œPremium version of the software will be able to come up with opinion articles containing in high-sounding philosophical and economical terms. Iâ€™m currently working on them,â€ the soon-to-be-rich teenager revealed.
All leading journalists and media houses (including Faking News) have expressed desire in buying this software as no one wants to lose on the potential traffic a Narendra Modi article can attract. The only journalistic concern is about the articles being â€œexclusiveâ€ and unique.
â€œOf course, unique articles can be generated using the software. Yes, primarily it will use the same old arguments and content, but with clever permutations and combinations, a seemingly new article can be generated,â€ Ranjit explained the working of his software.
â€œThatâ€™s precisely what anyway happens when an article on Narendra Modi is written in the real world by real people,â€ he added.
Ranjit is further planning to develop an Android and iOS application that will automatically tweet or update Facebook status messages about Narendra Modi.
â€œWindows already has MODI (Microsoft Office Document Imaging),â€ he pointed out.

Social Psychologist Cracks Modiâ€™s Power Code: Exclusive Interview with Ah-Cheese Dandy
In what can be a paradigm shifting study, Indiaâ€™s foremost social psychologist Ah-Cheese Dandy reveals the hidden symbolism behind the solar power projects of Narendra Modi â€“ the chief minister of Gujarat whose Prime Ministerial ambitions have created a wedge in the nationâ€™s polity. Narendra Modiâ€™s supporters in the social media have been spreading the alleged success of his Narmada Canal solar panels where it is claimed that these panels would collect sun light and allegedly convert it into electricity. In an exclusive interview to â€˜The Chinduâ€™, the social psychologist who just published a seminal piece â€œMandalisation of Corruption : An antidote to Mandirisation of polity â€œ, talked to our Non-Resident Indian Editor Varadarth Siddharajan regarding his new book â€˜The Solar Nexusâ€™ in which the author discusses the ominous trends in Indian politics generated by Mr. Narendra Modi by analysing one of his pet projects. Here is an excerpt from the interview.
Varadarth Siddharajan (VS): Prof.Dandy, Thank you for agreeing to talk to â€˜The Chinduâ€™. What is your new book about?
Ah-Cheese Dandy (AD): Thank you Varadarth. It is a pleasure and privilege. The book is about the much hyped solar panels atop the Narmada canal which was Narendra Modiâ€™s pet project. I discuss the deep socio-psychological undercurrents in this project which reveal the nature of the man behind this project. I also contrast it with other solar projects in the country.
VS: Does your book have some revealing statistics about how the project does not fare well as it has been hyped?
AD: No. That shall be done by comrade economists from JNU. My concentration here is on the deep dark symbolism of the project and the authoritarian nature of execution, which sets this project distinct from other solar power projects in the nation. I also trace the roots of the project which are really very dark.
VS: Can you please elaborate.
AD: With pleasureâ€¦ See the project is based on solar power. Naturally the question arises why not water power? Why not wind powerâ€¦ or for that matter why not biogas? Why go for solar power?
AD: Remember that the Nazis had Swastika as their symbol. The Hindu Right also venerates Swastika. Swastika is a solar symbol. So naturally Narendra Modi an inheritor of this Hindu-Right-Germanic nexus goes for the solar power. It is simply a return of the Nazi symbols. Further by projecting this solar power project Narendra Modi is also sending a strong signal. Crescent is the Islamic symbol. By making the solar acronym to the Islamic crescent Narendra Modi is playing to the jingoistic middle class in India.
VS: This is really a deep insightful study. You have also mentioned that this project is anti-feminine. Can you explain?
AD: Hindu nationalists have always emphasized the masculine. Notice that Mr. Modi is sporting a beard and a moustache. He is always flaunting the fact that he is a male. That naturally appeals to the Hindu supremacists who actually have a strong unconscious fear of becoming effeminate due to colonial constructs. The river represents here the feminine. By covering the feminine with the masculine solar panels he has created a technological male supremacist structure which naturally gels with Hindutva. In explaining this I have of course been helped by the insights of Prof. Trendy Woniger. When I first published this in Harvard South Asian Journal, a Hindu fundamentalist terrorist posted a â€˜thumbs downâ€™ icon in the comments box of the online journal. I should say that with the ascendancy of Narendra Modi the tolerance level of Hindus is descending very fast.
VS: This is a really alarming. It is hard to imagine in what kind of dangerous environments the academics have to work with a threatening Hindu Right becoming more and more powerful. You have also stated about how the solar project of Modi is centralized, authoritarian and not as empowering and democratic as other solar panel projects in the nation. Can you explain that for our readers?
AD: I compare the Kerala solar power model with the so-called successful Gujarat solar power project. In the case of the Kerala model the Chief Minister has risked his name, character etc. for the sake of making the project as much democratic as possible. The benefits of executing the project flow through various channels at each level. There are many beneficiaries and there is obvious gender empowerment. Shalu Menon and Saritha Nair are seen in the corridors of power in Kerala. Where are such women in Gujarat solar project? Notice how the Kerala solar power project provides a wholesome glimpse to the entire nation into the inner workings of the government. There is transparency. There is drama. See how the news channels all the time talk about solar project in a sensational way. But what is the case of Gujarat solar power project? There is no such drama. Scandals are an important way of empowering people. Scandals democratize our polity and business. However under the authoritative dictatorial regime of Modi there is no scope for such things to happen. A reductionist approach of merely a solar power project only for providing electricity but no entertainment is not a good thing for a democracy like India. Only a degenerate middle class psyche can support such no-corruption projects. The obsession of Indian mind with a corruption-free government, a government that delivers is actually a very dangerous thing. It is this tendency which can promote people like Modi into power. Imagine five years of no corruption, no major scams, no cover-ups, no gang rapes â€¦ what will the panellists discuss in the TV show rooms? What kind of news we will have in 24 x 7 channelsâ€¦ We will end up having only development, we will end up having only happy facesâ€¦ we will end up having a nation proud of itselfâ€¦ now that can lead to jingoismâ€¦ now that will make Pakistan feel bad about Indiaâ€¦ We have to respect the feeling of our neighbours also. What if Modi and his police stop all LeT operatives? Can you imagine a year without any major bomb blasts or even â€˜chota-motaâ€™ bomb blasts? Then what will the conspiracy theorists do? A bomb blast followed by our democratic leaders tweeting about how it could have been masterminded by our own security agenciesâ€¦ is that not a mark of matured democracy? (He gets visibly emotional)â€¦ All this will be put to an end by Narendra Modi. The solar project in Gujarat is just a glimpse of what will happen to India if Modi will come to powerâ€¦ And an India with only solar power and development schemes executed with no scams means no Radia-Burkha tapes as well. That will be a sad day and that India will be a sad place to live. And I am afraid we are going towards such a state.
VS: That is a very scary scenario. So what do you suggest we should do?
AD: The progressive democratic secular forces should come together. The UPA-III should promise the people of India that if they come back to power they shall bring in a â€˜Right to Scamâ€™ bill. Indian mindset of seeing scams with a negative perception should be changed. They should be made to understand that scams are part and parcel of the democratic process. A scheme executed without scams is an anti-aam-aadmi scheme. Academicians, media and progressive liberal intellectuals should all come together and make Indian psyche accept this basic fact of a healthy democracy. That is what I aim to do through this book.
VS: Thank you Prof.Dandy. Ever vigilant scholars like you are the real saviours of our system. With such a committed vision we can really save Indian polity from any dangers from any person. On behalf of the readers of â€˜The Chinduâ€™ we wish you all the best.

Man files RTI to find out what exactly is Sheila Dixit responsible for | Faking News
New Delhi. A 30-year-old male from Mahipalpur here has filed an RTI application to find out the things Sheila Dixit is responsible for as Chief Minister of Delhi.
The applicant, Surender Sehrawat decided to file the application after he learned that Sheila Dixit was not responsible for the poor state of roads in the capital.
Speaking to Faking News, Mr. Sehrawat said, â€œJust like every year, I was cursing Sheila Dixit led Congress government after the roads in our village became rivers after a spell of rain, thatâ€™s when someone told me that I should be blaming BJP for the poor state of the roads as they control the municipal corporations. This got me thinking, what exactly is the responsibility of Delhi government.â€
Sheila Dixit pointing towards someone who could probably be responsible
â€œWe know for a fact that Sheila Dixit is not responsible for law and order in Delhi, now we know that she isnâ€™t responsible for civil infrastructure in the city. She wasnâ€™t responsible for any irregularities in the organization of Commonwealth Games. I donâ€™t want to receive this news in installments; I want to know the things she is responsible for so that I blame her only for thoseâ€, he went on to add.
Mr. Sehrawatâ€™s sentiments were echoed by several Delhi residents we interviewed. A Vasant Vihar resident, Mrs. Vaishali Bansal said, â€œSurely raising prices of electricity is not her only responsibility. There must be more to that job. I am also curious to know what it is. Every time someone raises a problem in Delhi, she says itâ€™s not her responsibility and we should go somewhere else. In fact, yesterday she said we should pray to the God to get rid of water-logging!â€
â€œWhy do we need a CM then?â€ Mrs. Bansal wondered
While a resident of Shahdara, Mr. Yatin Goyal said, â€œWhat is the use of asking now. She has won 3 elections and now people wonder what exactly she does as CM of Delhi? She blames everyone else, thatâ€™s what she does. Blame BJP, Blame God, Blame Kejriwal, isnâ€™t blaming so many people a full time job?â€
When we tried to get Sheila Dixitâ€™s reaction on this, she snapped at us and said, â€œThis responsibility was given to me by the high-command. I am not answerable to you.â€
BTW, is it good restaurant...? If I have happen to be in Mumbai, would give it a try for sure..
