    Namaste: Mohandas Karamchand Gangdhi the most cunning and the most celebrated Indian colonial parasite in the world. He made his financial and political fortunes from Black Africa. He was one of the founding members of the Indian Empire and the Third Eye the most secretive and ruthless intelligence service in the world with Bose and Nehru. He always wanted to be a Brahmin and slept with very young temple girls. He refused to travel with blacks in public transport and hardly had anything to do with blacks. He joined the British army as a Sepoy to crush Zulu uprising against British-Indian Empire. The father of the Indian Empire. Jai Hind
