A homograph is a word that has the same spelling as another word but has a different sound and a different meaning: lead (to go in front of)/lead (a metal)
A homophone is a word that has the same sound as another word but is spelled differently and has a different meaning: to/two/too
Now where does one fit Selfie and Selfish? Can it be called Homophone?
Well, frankly I don’t know. I am not alone in the confusion. Eminent editor of Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) mouthpiece Liberation Ms Kavita Krishnan is equally confused about these apparently different words.
It is not only words that confuse her. To be seen as a liberal, which she believes she is, she has to oppose anything that talks of bringing order to the society. She confuses liberalism with anarchy while discussing things like rape and its prevention.
Communist liberal feminist Kavita Krishnan opposes death penalty for rapists. Her logic is that the girl who has been raped will not like the rapist to get hanged. From where could she get this insight except her own warped and confused mind? But, one should not be surprised because she belongs to a tribe of extreme left.
Many a normal behenjis and maatayen derided by these progressive women who also laugh and look down upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi because he calls ladies with these respected and typical Indian terms; would not believe what I said about her views. So, here is the link to the video of this eminent liberal. Please feel blessed with her insight about Indian womanhood at www.deathpenaltyindia.com.

This brings me to the ‘Maan Ki Baat’ lecture, by Prime Minister.
In his ‘Maan Ki Baat’ lecture, Prime Shri Modi said, “I keep communicating with you through social media, and I get to know a lot of new-new things from you too.” He mentioned the Central Government scheme of Save the Daughter, Educate the Daughter, which he said were strengthened when individuals made it their own. “Some days ago, a Sarpanch in Haryana's Bibipur village, Sunil Jaglan, had come up with a fun idea, He started the selfie with daughter initiative..” The PM then asked more people to post selfies, to boost the pride in the girl child.
While people across the world got fired up with simple fun way of conveying love for daugthers, progressive, secretary of All India Progressive Women's Association didn’t. She is Kavita Krishnan. She found it to be distasteful. So, she took a swipe on the positive take by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on a Haryana Sarpanch Sunil Jaglan’s call, ‘to post selfie with daughter’.
She tweeted “Careful before sharing #SelfieWithDaughter with #LameDuckPM. He has a record of stalking daughters.”
Kavita Krishnan mixed up her ‘selfish’ objective of insulting and criticising PM ad hominem with his call for selfie with daughter?
All the three Kavita Krishnan, the editor of Liberation; the communist feminist and the secretary of All India Progressive Women's Association are one and the same. So, is Kavita Krishnan herself a bundle of confusion between a homograph or homophone?
Well, she is neither. She is homonym. Depending on whom you talk to, homonym means either i.e. A word that is spelled and pronounced like another but has a different meaning (homograph and homophone).
To cut it short, all the three Kavita Krishnans are same, coming out differently on different occasions. Her homonym personality is transformed into different versions depending on her objective of running down Modi or Right or Hindus.
It is natural for the followers of Marx and Lenin to
- Advocate no death penalty for rapists
- Not support campaigns like “Beti Bacho, Beti Padhao”
- Marx fathered illegitimate child
- Vladimir Lenin died from syphilis. (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/6406447/Vladimir-Lenin-died-from-syphilis-new-research-claims.html)
In front of achievements of Marx and Lenin, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is bound to look like LameDuckPM to Kavita Krishnan.
And with so much of female empowerment, naturally she feels threatened that she might lose her lofty perch in society. She is worried about what will happen to followers of Marx and Lenin. Here is a badly shaken ‘selfish’ lady confusing purpose of selfie with daughters with her ‘selfish’ objective and in turn unleashing her tweets against the PM. Hey Kavita Krishnan! Take care before it is too late for redemption from opium of Marxism-Leninism. Get well soon.
