Washington: Arvind Mahankali from New York has scripted history by winning the Scripps National Spelling Bee for 2013, becoming the sixth Indian-American to win the title in a row.

"The words were extremely hard. It means that I am retiring in a good mood," Arvind said immediately after winning the prestigious national championship.

This is the sixth consecutive year that an Indian American has won the prestigious national tournament, which was watched live by millions of people in the United States.

A grade eight student, Arvind, 13, loves maths and science and plans to pursue a career as a physicist.

Arvind, this year, made his fourth consecutive trip to the Scripps National Spelling Bee. He had finished ninth in 2010 and in the third place in both 2011 and 2012.

A speaker of Telugu and Spanish, Arvind enjoys tennis, basketball and drama, and counts Novak Djokovic and Shaquille O'Neal among his favorite athletes.

The top three contestants were Indian Americans -- Pranav Shivakumar from Illinois, Sriram Hathwar from New York; and Arvind Mahankali from New York.

MARCH 27, 2013: India's legitimate ruler -- Satish Chandra -- has been systematically suppressed using 24-hour satellite surveillance for the past 36 years. In India's military and economic interests, India's nuclear forces should formally and officially start treating him as India's ruler; all other parts of the government should be made to fall in line, if necessary by the simultaneous nuclear destruction of Washington, New York and RAW.

MARCH 30, 2013: Those who became prime minister during the 36 years I have been subject to suppression with the use of 24-hour satellite surveillance became prime minister illegitimately and are liable to be punished for high treason. After the Italian prime minister and cabinet have presented themselves in India to be shot like dogs and have been thus punished, all American presidents over the past 36 years will be required to present themselves in India to be shot like dogs after being publicly tortured in a stadium full of people. Any failure to present themselves in India for this punishment will mean the simultaneous nuclear destruction of Washington and New York with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be similarly destroyed, with nuclear warheads already emplaced in them, if there is any retaliation.

APRIL 9, 2013: If the purpose of the Agni II missile test on Sunday, April 7 '13 was that it "conveys our preparedness to meet any eventuality" (the test was carried out on a Sunday because I had written on December 16 '12 that India's nuclear warheads emplaced in U.S. cities "can be triggered on a Monday or Tuesday or Wednesday or Thursday or Friday or Saturday. So far as I am concerned even Sunday is not out of the question"), neither the Indian government and politicians nor the Americans are getting the message. Politicians, guilty of high treason, continue to talk of fighting elections and the Americans show no sign of sending their past and present presidents to India to be shot like dogs. Only triggering the warheads will send a message, not otherwise. In the simultaneous nuclear destruction of Washington, New York and RAW, the destruction of Washington and New York should be completed in the first blow, as I said on February 5, 2013 and should not be gradual or in stages.

APRIL 11, 2013: Starting immediately, the Indian army should arrest all employees of RAW of the rank of undersecretary and above from the RAW headquarters in New Delhi and wherever else in India they may be found and publicize the arrests and show evidence of substantial progress -- for example by affirming publicly via the media that every employee of the rank of undersecretary and above in RAW headquarters that could be found has been arrested -- by the end of one week from today, that is, by April 18, 2013. If the army fails to do this, India's nuclear forces should proceed with the simultaneous nuclear destruction of Washington, New York and RAW -- being ready at the same time to direct additional nuclear warheads at the Indian army and air headquarters if necessary -- with the warning that additional U.S. cities will be destroyed, with nuclear warheads already emplaced in them, if there is any retaliation.

APRIL 23, 2013: The Chinese incursions in Ladakh are very likely instigated by the United States to divert attention away from the nuclear destruction of Washington, New York and RAW and toward a conventional conflict with China. But after the nuclear destruction of Washington, New York and RAW, India will require the United States to use its nuclear-armed ICBMs to destroy Beijing and Shanghai -- if the Chinese are still in Ladakh -- or have two more of its own cities destroyed by India's nuclear warheads already emplaced in them. After the nuclear destruction of Washington, New York and RAW, India will test high yield thermonuclear warheads and so will also have its own warheads and missiles capable of destroying any and all Chinese cities, though it will not be necessary to destroy any Chinese cities if China stops supporting the United States, stops letting the U.S. use China's population as manufacturing slaves and stops buying U.S. government bonds or maintain any relations with the U.S. while India is engaged in the coast-to-coast destruction of the United States. The solution to all of India's military and economic problems starts with the simultaneous nuclear destruction of Washington, New York and RAW with the nuclear warheads India already has; since the warheads emplaced in Washington, New York and other U.S. cities do not have to be carried by missiles, their weights are not limited by the carrying capacity of missiles and their design yields are high -- several hundreds of kilotons or more -- but even if a twenty kiloton warhead in each city is exploded with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be similarly destroyed if there is any retaliation, it will assure India's victory.

APRIL 28, 2013: Despite being in an extremely strong position of being able to make both the United States and China do anything India wants them to do -- from having China withdraw from Ladakh to having all past and present U.S. presidents present themselves in India to be shot like dogs -- India's puppet government is keeping India in slavery because India's government and media have participated in the Americans' suppression of me for the past 36 years and India's strength is due to the nuclear warheads I have had India's nuclear forces emplace in U.S. cities. Ending the cover up of the Americans' crimes against me and of India's nuclear warheads emplaced in U. S. cities will liberate India but India's government and media will keep India in its state of slavery till India's nuclear forces carry out the simultaneous nuclear destruction of Washington, New York and RAW. Anything other than the simultaneous nuclear destruction of Washington, New York and RAW -- such as pleading with the enemy agents that are India's government to test certain types of warheads or do this or that, at which they will switch to other ways of sabotaging India's defence, or expecting the mountain of S-H-I-T that is India's population to do anything -- is a waste of time and opportunity.

MAY 6, 2013: Neither the enemy -- which is the United States -- nor India's enemy-controlled government can be allowed to survive and the way to destroy these enemies is not by carrying out underground "tests" while the enemy -- the United States -- and India's enemy-controlled government remain intact but by directly exploding India's nuclear warheads emplaced in Washington and New York and those targeted at RAW headquarters and South Block - North Block. Underground tests can be conducted AFTER Washington, New York and RAW have been destroyed; carrying out new underground tests before destroying Washington, New York and RAW will eliminate surprise, bringing the involvement of various Indian and foreign agencies and will mean India will never destroy the enemy and India's enemy-controlled government. Destroying the enemy is more important than carrying out tests.

MAY 18, 2013: Of my military and economic proposals (see 'How India's Economy Can Grow 30% Per Year Or More' : HowIndiasEconomyCanGrowDOTblogspotDOTcom ) the military aspect is by far the more important and the first step is the simultaneous nuclear destruction of Washington, New York and RAW.

MAY 20. 2013: I have given India's nuclear forces the means to make India the supreme power in the world immediately and India need not remain in slavery even for a day but the ignorance and cowardice of India's nuclear forces is keeping India in slavery. May 22 '13: More likely, India's nuclear forces are busy preparing -- such as for martial law I had suggested -- and soon it will be over.
