24. Coup On Idioms, Proverbs, Ethical Science In India

In Indian life style, there are thousands of idioms, proverbs and elder’s statements to guide the people. The idioms, proverbs, elder’s statements, small poems with ethical values are like torch light in our hands in the dark.

We know how the formula in Mathematics and Physics etc subjects are helpful to understand the subject and to learn the subject. In the same manner, the idioms, the proverbs, elder’s statements and small poems in ethical literature are helpful to correct our behavior and to check our thinking style and life style.

Strategically, the coup makers i.e. CIA, ISI, Ramoji Rao and their supporters like writers cinema people, and media had degraded these idioms, proverbs etc by propagating as “The idioms and proverbs etc are out dated and not suitable to the modern days. Some idioms are quite opposite to some other idioms. Then which one is suitable to follow? Like that, the idioms will create confusion in us”.

For example in Telugu, there is an idiom, “ఆలస్యం అమృతం విషం” which means if we delay to consume nectar or honey, it may become as poison. This is used to refer in the context in which we have to take immediate action. Another idiom is there as “నిదానమే ప్రధానం” which means slowness is the best policy. This is used to refer in the context in which we should be slow and patience. According to the situation, we have to decide which of the proverbs i.e. “ఆలస్యం అమృతం విషం” or “నిదానమే ప్రధానం” is suitable to follow.

By leaving this common sense, if anybody blames the proverbs, who can convince them with logic sense?

Suppose, the day and nights. Up to sunrise, on the half of the earth sphere, there will be darkness. We call it as nighttime. After sunrise up to sunset, there will be brightness on the earth. We call it as daytime. The ending limit of night is sunrise and the ending limit of day is sunset. In vice versa the begging limit of day is Sunrise and the beginning limit of night is sunset.

Without considering these limitations, how can we understand the day and nights? There is same case with proverbs, idioms, elder’s statements small poems of ethics and paradoxes.

But the propaganda of coup makers i.e. CIA, ISI, Ramoji Rao and their supporters like writers, cinema people and media had brain washed the public to forget the limits of proverbs and idioms, the context of proverbs and idioms application, the use of the proverbs and idioms and the warning of proverbs and idioms. They introduced new proverbs and idioms by claiming the existed idioms and proverbs were outdated. The modern idioms had served the purpose of jokes and mockery on existed idioms and proverbs. Any way jokes will be lapsed in human memory. For time being, we will laugh at jokes. After that, we will forget most of them. With all this exercise on brain, it is natural to erase the existed idioms and proverbs. Like that, the coup makers and their supporters had successfully destroyed the network of proverbs and idioms, which could guide the life style and attitude of public.

I’ll show an example to you. In the context of bring up the children, our existed idiom is “మొక్కై వంగనిది మానై వంగునా?” which means, if it is not bended being a plant, after some time when the plant turns as tree, how it will bend.

This proverb is used in the context of reminding the need of correction of children in the beginning itself. The modern idiom or proverb is “బీరు నాడే విననప్పుడు విస్కీ తాగే రోజున వింటాడా?” which means “Anybody, if they won’t hear us when they are drinking bear, how they can hear us when they are drinking whiskey?” This modern proverb makes us to laugh as well as to forget the existed one, which relates to the brining up the children. In this entertainment, we will forget the bear & whiskey proverb is not relates to children, it related to the youth or elders who became up to the age of consuming liquor.

If this strategy is confined to one, two or few idioms, it won’t be much damagive. But if the strategy is applied to each proverb in our life style, it will be terrible dangerous. Where as we have thousands of proverbs. More over nobody can notice the strategy hidden behind this entertainment. We consider it as casual. Behind this causality, the half of the strategy of the coup makers and their supporters had spread and strengthened in our country. This dragged us from high and rich India to poor India.

In English, there is grammatical clarification between idioms and proverbs. But I’m using them in the same meaning.

In Indian life style, in Telugu regarding idioms & proverbs, there is a popular statement as “ పెద్దల మాట చద్ది మూట” which means the elder’s statement is equivalent to the food packet, ready to eat. In ancient days, people used to travel on foot. While travelling, if they have food packet with them, then there will be no need for them to search for food. Even in modern days also, if we have homemade food packet, ready to eat with us, then there won’t be any need to us to search for a good restaurant.

This proverb is used to refer to remind us that idioms, proverbs and elder’s statements will guide us and readily available to refer like homemade food packet which is ready to eat while travelling.

On the other hand, in Telugu, there is another meaning to the word “చద్ది ” i.e. ‘Chaddi’ as boiled rice, which was boiled yesterday.

The coup makers and their supporters like media had spread a mockery on the above idiom as “If the elder’s words are like ‘Chaddi’, is it means the yesterday boiled rise? If we eat such contemned food, we will go to hospital as a patient.”

We laughed at it by thinking that it was a joke. We neglected it by thinking that it is causal. But this is a strategy. This is a coup.

Another example I give you. In Indian life style, in Hindu culture and in Hindu religion, the light has very importance. A small cotton thread is dipped in oil in a small cup made up of mud or metal is lighted in devotion to God. It is called as ‘deepam’. By keeping this deepams in series, Indians or Hindus celebrate a festival ‘Deepavali’ on grand scale.

In Indian philosophy, in Hindu religions, this light i.e. Deepam has sacred place. The light is considered as a symbol of knowledge. In Hindu culture, there is a tradition as ‘To do not blow off the light.’

There is a belief that after offing on the earth, the light i.e. Deepam which is considered as the other form of God and knowledge, will go to God to report about our behavior. When we off the light by blowing it off, by pumping air with mouth onto it, it will report to God as “Oh! God. In so and so house, they had insulted me. They splitted on me. I don’t like to go to that house again”. If light doesn’t come to our house; there won’t be knowledge, wealth, and health in our house.

When we off the light by pumping air onto it with a paper waving or hand waving, it will report to God as “Oh! God! In so and so house, they had given send off to me by waving me with hand fan. I like to go to that house again.”

When we off the light by pumping out by clapping our hands near the lamp or candle, it will report to God as “Oh! God! In so and so house, they had given send off to me with respects. They clapped at me. I like to go to that house again”.

If light comes to our house; we will have knowledge, wealth and health. Such is the belief of Indians or Hindus. But now, most of the so-called modern people do not know this, because of the western fashion of candles blowing on the birthday cake. In such a way, the fashion or modern attitude had erased the sacred feelings and sensitive reminders of truths and values in life.

More over in May 2008, an enthusiastic man had efforted to blow off 190+ candles at a time in one breathe. Along with fashions, the coup makers and their supporters had created such crazes among public. By blowing off candles, or by piercing pins on body or by growing up the mustaches or fingernails for meters of lengths, what enthusiastic people had achieved we don’t know. For such non-sensical or useless activities or time wasting programs, why the Gunnies record of world events is giving such importance we don’t know. For such Gunnies record events, why the media give such publicity we don’t know. With such events, who will get any benefit we don’t know. No poor, no people will get any benefit, as per our normal view. There is same case with beauty contest.

Well, let us return to the topic of coup on Proverbs. Any way by creating mockery on existed systems, by creating crazes, new trends, new fashions, the coup makers i.e. CIA, ISI, Ramoji Rao and their supporters like writers, cinema people and media successfully and strategically had influenced the public attitude and life style. Thus, they implemented the coup on India. This made them easy to robbery the wealth and manpower. We can suspect that the same case is with all over the world.

Some other idioms in Telugu and in Indian life style are “పుణ్యానికి పోతే పాపం ఎదురైంది. ఉపకారంకి పోతే అపకారం ఎదురైంది.” which means when we moved to do good, bad had happened to us. This is used to refer when our fate is in such a bitter manner.

Regarding this proverb, the working of the coup makers and their supporters is very interesting. These proverbs were not criticized or no mockery was done on these idioms. These idioms are applied us they are in meaning.

When any accident happened, anybody moved to help the victims with humanity, the police had harassed them since some decades in Indian society. The Govt. authorities also rejected to treat the victims who brought by people instead of police. They had shown a Govt. rule and insisted to bring the victims along with the police complaint and recommendation. Any way police dept. didn’t respond in time. Both the police dept. and Hospitals were competitors to implement redtapisam. Regarding this, the media including print and electronic i.e. paper and cinema media had highlighted this redtapisam like anything. The ultimate result is the bitter experience of victims and people who responded to help the victims on humanity grounds. Gradually people stopped to respond on such events of accidents.

Again, the coup makers and their supporters like media had shouted on this negligence or non-responsive psychology of people on such events as “Indians move beside the victims in road accidents. Nobody will help them. They are such in-human”. Is it correct? Are we in-human? Won’t we feel sorry and sorrow for the victims?

There is same case with murder or violence cases. If somebody watches a murder or an assassination or violent attack, if they go to police station to complaint about such events or to give witness in such events, the police people start to interrogate them as if they are the criminals. What such people can do except thinking of the idiom ‘పుణ్యానికి పోతే పాపం ఎదురైంది’.

There is such possibility as the criminals can show such crookedness as complainting on the same murder or violent attack by pretending himself as an innocent. So that police can think like that as the part in their duty. But if they mingle redtapisam in that issue, what the innocent and responsible citizen can think?

Can’t the police investigate who might be the criminals or who might not be the criminals? Can’t the police investigate, in a murder case, in an assassination case, or in a violent attack case, as‘1? What is the motive of that crime? 2. Who has the motive to commit crime? 3. Who has the alibi in that? 4. Who might be the witness and who might be the criminal? 5. Who has the benefit with the killing of so and so in that crime? Etc.

If police are not able to investigate this for years and years or for months and months, then what is the need to public and to Govt. to give such huge salaries to police officials and to maintain the police department?

Another idiom in Telugu is “కీలెరిగి వాత పెట్టాలి” which means ‘Apply appropriate solution to every problem.” In the place of this idiom, a new or updated idiom introduced is ‘నోటెరిగి ఓటు వేయాలి’ which means, “By knowing the value of currency note given, we have to execute our vote.”

I think there is no need to explain further, as you understood its impact. Another idiom is ‘చెడపకురా చెడేవు ’ which means “We should not do harm to others, if do so we will get harm”.

Successfully and strategically, the coup makers i.e. CIA, ISI, Ramoji Rao and their supporters had made the people to forget this ‘Fear to do sin.’

As a result of this, now we are watching in the society such a people who are not fearing to do harm as pretending friends. Some people are working as agents of private chit fund companies. For their commission sake, they are making friendships with innocents and mobilizing them to deposit money in their private chit fund companies. The fact, in these issues is they know that the so-called chit fund company is not fair, and on some day, it is going to cheat the public. Are we not watching such people in our surroundings?

Some people are working as agents of private Corporate colleges and schools. They mobilize their surrounding people by name friendship to join their children in such private Corporate colleges and schools. As a return gift, they will have either free education to their children or commission for each admission. Here the so-called agents are interested on their commission than their friendships. Are we not watching such people in our surroundings?

Some people are working as agents of Corporate Hospitals. They mobilize their surrounding people by name friendship to approach their Corporate hospitals and diagnosing centers for their health problems. Somehow, if they pollute health of their friends by giving contaminated food or water or slow poisoned food, we should not surprise at it. Are we not watching such people in our surroundings?

With this strategy only, the coup makers and their supporters could destroy the lives of heirs of great persons like Annamayya and others, who worked for good to people of Nation? For example, Annamayya’s heirs, at Tirupathi Tirumala Devasthanam. The coup makers i.e. CIA, ISI, especially Ramoji Rao had dragged them up to utter poverty and attenders’ level by the name of court cases against Mirasidars. ' On the other hand, the coup makers i.e. CIA, ISI especially Ramoji Rao are able to provoke the friends of Annamayya’s heirs to give slow poison or chemicals in their foods and drinks to make them deaf and dumb. Because Anamayya was the divine musician who opposed materialism and praising of rich & kings. Because Anamayya was the divine musician and singer who motivated the then people to practice idealism and devotion to God. Because Annamayya’s songs are still capable to motivate present people in the path of idealism and devotion towards God. By making the heirs of Annamayya’s as deaf and dumb, the coup makers i.e. CIA, ISI, Ramoji Rao and their supporters like media are capable to highlight the issue as “రాగాల ఇంట మూగబోయిన గొంతులు” such is the level of their perversion. Here is an interesting point that Mr. NT Rama Rao being the then CM of AP had cancelled the Mirasidars system in TTD.

This type of strategy they play on public, to influence the public attitude. In India, people have, some believes, as “Whatever we do good or bad, our next generations will get the further effect of our activities.”

By playing such strategies like damaging the psychological and physical lives of heirs of good people, the coup makers and their supporters could change the attitude of public to forget such believes. For that sake, the coup makers and their supporters are able to give success to the heirs of bad people and they are able to give failure to the heirs of good people after decades and centuries.

You can verify the above strategy in the cases of Raj Nath Gandhi’s [Bapuji’s grandson] statement in media in 1980’s and the same of Mr. Sunil Sasthri, the grandson of Lal Bahadur Sasthri.

I’m not saying that all of the people are like this. But such people are in countable ratio who had forgotten “The fear to so sin.”

One more idiom is ‘ఉట్టె కెక్కలేనమ్మ స్వర్గానికెక్కుతుందా?” which means if a woman can’t jump up to the sling, how she can jump up to the height of heaven.” This is used to refer to remind our work effort, the relevant result, and our desire regarding result. This idiom guides us to do not expect much without improving the work efficiency. In the place of this existed idiom, what is the new idiom, do you know? ‘మేకప్ టెస్ట్ కే గతి లేదు గాని నంది అవార్డు కావాలందట’ which means, “There is no possibility to the makeup test for an actress in cinema, but she is expecting Nandi Award.”
One more idiom is “ఆలూ లేదు చూలు లేదు అల్లుడు పేరు సోమ లింగం” which means, “There is no wife to a man. There is no pregnancy to his wife. But he is saying that his son-in-law’s name as Soma Lingam”. This is used to referrer when a person is expecting result and imagining further without performing the work. To this, the replaced idiom is “కథా లేదు, డైరక్టర్ లేడు ఆస్కార్ ఆవార్డు కావాలన్నాడట” which means, “There is no story, no director to produce a movie. But he is expecting Oscar’s award.”

One more idiom is “అడుసు తొక్కనేల కాలు కడగ నేల” which means, “Why should we step into the muddy floor and why should we wash our foot.” This is referred to remind the people as “Better to react to prevent the troubles instead of solving the troubles after happening. This warns the people from doing mistakes. The new idiom to this is “బీరు త్రాగటం ఎందుకు? హాంగొవర్ అనడం ఎందుకు?” which means, “why should we drink Beer and why should we say about the hangover.” How this modern idiom can warn the people as ‘To do not commit mistakes or bad’ by reminding about the mistake or bad?

One more idiom is “వేపగింజ నాటి మామిడి పండు కాయలేదంటే ఎలా?” which means, “We should not desire to get mango fruit, when we sowed Neem seeds.” This reminds the people that the result what they get will be according to the works they had done. The new idiom is “చికెన్ అర్డర్ చేసి చేపలు సర్వ్ చేయ్యలేదంటే ఎలా? ” which means, “We should not desire to get fish when we order the chicken.” Can this idiom remind the spirits and truth as the existed one does?

One more idiom is “ఆవు చేలో మేస్తుంటే దూడ గట్టున మేస్తుందా? Which means, “When the cow is grazing in the field, how the calf will graze on the bank of the fields.” This reminds us “When parents do the mistake, then how the children will be in right manner?”

The new idiom is “తండ్రి విస్కీ తాగుతుంటే కొడుకు బీరు తాగడా?” which means, “When the father is drinking whiskey, why not the son drink the bear?” Can this remind the parents about their responsibility? Instead of such reminder, definitely this idiom will remind them to drink the liquor. Such that all the new idioms remind and attract the people towards the crazes, emotions, hobbies and hobbits like alcohol consumption or gambling.

In fact, there are thousands of idioms in Telugu. There is same case in all Indian languages. They remind people to take the health care. They remind people to correct themselves. They remind people to think well. They remind people to correct their behavior with others in family and in society. They remind people to prevent themselves from bad and evil. They remind the people to improve the work efficiency. I’ll give some of them for your ready reference.


1]. “సూర్యుడు రాకముందే నిద్రలేవాలి చంద్రుడొచ్చాక నిద్రపోవాలి” -which means early to bed late to sleep.
2]. “ఉల్లి చేసే మేలు తల్లి కూడా చేయదు” -which means the onion does more help to us than our mother.
3]. “దీపం పెట్టాక తల దువ్వరాదు”-which means we should not comb the hair after keeping lights. In ancient days, lamps were used, because they didn’t know the electricity. If people comb hair after keeping the lamps, the fallen hair might mix in food in the dimness of the house. It might cause the ill health.

4]. ‘దీపం లేనప్పుడు తినరాదు’-which means we should not eat when the light is off. In ancient days, when there were lamps, there would be the dim light in house. More over in those days number of snakes and other poisonous creatures was much. If people eat in dark, there was the possible of accidents with these poisonous creatures. They might fall in our dishes. People might eat them. Then they might die.

Such that there are many idioms:


1]. ‘ఉదయాన్నే నిద్రలేవక పోతే దరిద్రం’-which means if we don’t get up early in the morning, it will be poverty in our house. It is natural that people will become lazy if they habituated to sleep up to late in the morning. Then they would not like to work. Hence, result is poverty only.
2]. ‘పగటి నిద్ర పనికి చేటు’-which means if we sleep in the day time, it will damage our work.
3]. ‘పగటి కలలు దరిద్రం’-which means if we dream in the daytime, it will be poverty to our house. The explanation is some as above. Exactly on this point, the coup makers and their supporters had worked to improve the day dreaming nature in public. I discussed on this in detail under the caption of COUP ON INDIA BY CREATEING PARADOXES.

4]. ‘ముగ్గేయని గడప దాటితే దరిద్రం -which means if we cross the gate of our house in the morning on some work, it will be poverty to our house. That means early in the morning, before people in the house move out on work, the gate and surrounding should be cleaned. In ancient days, snakes might hide in the surrounding. If the housewife start to clean the place with broom, by that sound the snakes or some other poisonous creatures could ran away. Otherwise, if they hurt the members of the family, it might cause the poverty. On the other hand, to drive out the laziness of the people also such idioms are said by the elders.

5]. ‘పని మీద బయటకి వెళ్ళేటప్పుడు చింపిరి తలతో ఇల్లాలు ఎదురొస్తే దరిద్రం’–which means anybody when going out on some work, if his housewife comes before him with dirty appearance, if it will be poverty to the house. This reminds the people, while going on some work; our mood must be peaceful and pleasant.

6]. ‘గోళ్ళు పెంచుకొంటే దరిద్రం ’–which means if we grow up the fingernails: it will be poverty to the house. This is practical reminder. With polished, decorated and long nails, we can’t work with efficiency. But the coup makers and their supporters had created such a crazy to nail polishes, nail shapes, nail decorations with beeds and kundans with 3D effect, and Gunnies record or Limca record long nails.

Such that there are hundreds of proverbs, idioms, elder’s statements and ethical poems regarding poverty preventive concepts.


1]. ‘ఇల్లు ఇరకటం ఆలి మరకటం’– which means, “Where the house is narrow, there the wife looks like monkey”. This reminds the man, when their income, wealth and house are not at higher grade, then wife also with the same case.
2]. ‘రాజుని చూసిన కంటితో మొగుణ్ణిని చూస్తే మొట్ట బుద్దెసిందట’–which means if any woman compares her husband with the rich man or king, she will think her husband is not suitable for her. This reminds the same meaning in vice versa to men. Such that this proverb reminds the people to do not compare your life with that of others, it will create jealousy in us.

3]. ‘అరఘడియ సుఖం ఆర్నెల్ల రోగం’–which means if anybody tempts to have sex with prostitute, it will be joy for few minutes but it will result in a disease for six months. This warns the people to do not tempt for extra marital affairs.

4]. ‘ఇంటగెలిచి రచ్చగెలువు’–which means achieve the victory in the house first then achieve the victory in the world. So start your venture from yourself, from your family then apply it to the world. This is the meaning that the proverb giving us.

5]. ‘ఇంటి పేరు కస్తూరి వారు. ఇంట గబ్బిలాల కంపు –which means the name of race is perfume, where as there is smell of bats in the house. This warns the people to behave up to the fame of our race. The idioms which give the same motivation are ‘చెట్టు పేరు చెప్పి కాయలమ్ముకోవడం’–which means don’t try to sell the fruits by showing the name of tree. ‘మాతాతలు నేతులు త్రాగారు మామూతులు వాసనా చూడమన్నట్లు’–which means some body is saying that his grandparents had drunken the ghee, so that we can smell their mouth to verify it!

6]. ‘కయ్యానికైనా వియ్యానికైనా సమ ఉజ్జీ ఉండాలి’–which means we should select suitable person even to marry or to fight against him. This guides the people to select their relatives and enemies. So that they won’t raise rivalry with the strong people or weak people to their level. In the same case, they won’t expect marriage relation with rich or poor to their level.

7].’ తులసి వనంలో గంజాయి మొక్క’-which means there is a popi plant [Drug’s plant] in the garden of holy basil. This motivates the people to behave in such a manner to protect the fame of their race.

8]. ‘కాకిముక్కు కి దొండపండు ’-which means these is a red vegetable fruit in the beak of crow. This is used to refer improper matching of wife and husband.

Thus, there are many proverbs, which were on the fingertips of people to refer and to remind. But now such system was demolished in the part of the coup on Indians.


1]. ‘అరటిపండు ఒలిచి చేతిలో పెట్టినట్టు' -which means ‘If we want to explain anybody regarding any subject, it must be like keeping a banana fruit by removing the peel of it. That means it must be ready to eat. This proverb reminds the people that our communication skills must be with clarity.

2]. ‘పనోడు పందిరేస్తే పిచ్చుకలెక్కి పడేసినాయట’-which means ‘So-called efficient man had constructed a pendyal, but when some sparrows had sat on this pendyal, it had fallen down. Such is his efficiency.

3]. ‘ఆడలేనమ్మ మద్దెల ఓడన్నదట’-which means ‘An inefficient dancer said that the drum had broken. This alerts the people to do their work without throwing the blame on others for their failure.

4]. ‘ కొత్తబిచ్చగాడు పొద్దెరగడు’-which means ‘A new bagger can’t identify the right time to beg food. This warns the people to consider the suitable time to do any work.

5]. ‘కుక్క తోక పట్టుకొని గోదారి ఈదినట’-which means ‘It is like the swimming across the river Godavari by holding the tail of a dog as an aid’. This warns the people to be practical in doing any work.

6]. ‘కుక్కకాటుకి చెప్పు దెబ్బ’ -which means ‘A beat with cheppals [shoes] is the right solution to a dog for its bite’. This guides the people to apply right solution to every problem and to give appropriate punishment to the evil person.

7]. ‘కోటి విద్యలు కూటి కొరకే’–which means ‘There are crores of educations in this world; all of them are to earn life food only. While performing the Aksharabhyasam, i.e. the ceremony of starting the education for kids, at the age of 3 or 5 years, in Hindu religion and culture, there is a tradition. According to that, the mother or the teacher will make the kid to write ‘ఓం నమశివాయ’ i.e. Om! Namah Sivaya! In the rice, to indicate the education and knowledge is the primary requirement to earn this rice to live. The computer fixed ranks or yellow rating ranks can’t create the rice. Only the agriculture education or agricultural knowledge can create rice.

Such that there are, hundreds of proverbs like this to motivate the people to lead right deals in social life, to receive their fate, to improve their approach to knowledge education and brought up children.

If I go on to explain on them, it will become a big book. In my opinion, there is no such need. People can recall their memory and they can refer the old writings of our elders to identify the coup on idioms and proverbs. I hope that they can restore the use of proverbs and idioms.

I’m saying this with the courage that we have the everlasting treasure of ethical literature, like Vemana Sathakam, Sumathi Sathakam, Bhruthru Hari sathakam, etc. The small poems with beautiful lyric, meaning and comparison with natural phenomena guide us whenever we are in need. The coup makers and their supporters can robber the physical wealth from us. They can spoil our idealistic wealth. But they cannot smash it completely. It is the everlasting live energy, live activity and live spirituality.

I hope that such restore of our culture, our self-respect can take place in India. I wish that the present kids, children and youth of India could achieve this goal. I have no such trust on the most of the present elders of aged 35 to 75+ generation. But I have confidence on the present kids, children and youth and the real freedom fighters at the age of 80+ years.

They are the handlights to our mother India. They are the soldiers of our mother India. They are the worriers in the battlefield of good and bad to fight to protect good. They are the heirs of Indian culture since thousands of years. They are the owners of the dreams of our elders like Swami Vivekananda and Bapuji.

They can vision the truth.
They can give life to truth.
They can drive out the false from Indian’s life.
They can drive out the Corporatism and evil from human being’s life,
They can drive out the pollution from nature.
I believe this in the level as I believe in God.
