For Whom , For What

Zera : Bhaiya , Kahan Ja Rahe Hain
Me: hey zera, I’m going out with my friends to watch kurbaan
Zera : Ohh that movie…I hate those kinda movies…I mean Muslims, terrorism, anyways bye bhaiya ,have a nice time.
Me: Bye, see ya tonight


Zera (a smart, bubbly tenth standard student) is my neighbor. Later that night, I met her again with her friend sameer

Zera: bhaiya how was the movie.Sameer he saw kurbaan today
Me:Yeahh it was good
Sameer: I saw the trailer. From the trailer itself I almost understood the plot. It must be stupid one like other movies in similar genre.
Zera :yeahh first it was Fanahh ,then newyork now Kurbaan. Come-on all stupid movies
Sameer: Exactly zera, everyone is portraying us as bad people. As if we are born with a mark on our head that we are terrorists. So frustrating.


I didn’t want to take part in that conversation further, so I just told them bye and walked away. I couldn’t believe that this was the conversation between a 14 year old girl and 17 year old boy. I was surprised how much they were hurt (though they don’t even know what is life and haven’t experienced anything in there life) because of verbal, visual direct/ indirect attack towards a particular community just because of the stupidity of few extremists.
I was not interested in these kinds of topics and I never used to take part in debates, discussions that deals with religions, denominations and politics. But for some reason this incident made me think a lot. Because of the stupidity of few peoples (that too hardly 5 percentages) an entire community is suffering. I still can’t understand what is the aim behind these terrorism and riots and all. Though we are Christians, Hindus or Muslims we inhale same oxygen from same source, we need food and water to survive and also everyone is formed with blood and flesh .For whom we are fighting .I’m told and taught that all the religions teaches to love one another and don’t cause any harm to others. So I will say if anyone fight in the name of god or do harm to his other children’s, then they are not god’s children but devils loyal children.

Trivia: Few times back one of my friend told us a story that made us think and laugh a lot. His job demanded frequent flight journeys. To his surprise he and his baggages were always cross checked by officials (not only in airports but also in railway station).Later he mentioned this to a friend, who is a top official in police. After hearing this he started laughing hysterically and asked him to just shave his French beard. Surprisingly after he shaved his French beard off, not even a single official asked him for extra checking so far(it happened almost two years back) .The point to be noted was, he is a Christian and got a good achayan (Syrian Christian) name .But still, just because of a beard……

Singh is King – Indian Election 2009 Verdict

                  Finally the verdict of most anticipated (and probably most sensible election after 1977) has come. The congress lead upa did it again. Anyways it is so good to see at least one party got the majority to lead the nation. As Mr Sharad pawar said, a stable government was the need of the hour in these times of global recession and there should be no problem in formation of a stable government. In this present scenario of global meltdown and all, a co alliance government will do rather harm than good. And lets hope this time chota party’s willn’t remain stubborn in sensitive and important matters to gain political mileage.  Last year communist’s stand on nuclear deal, dmk’s stubbornness in Lankan issue troubled the government a lot.

                                 The credit of UPA’s victory clearly goes to the stable and dynamic leadership of sonia gandhi,Manmohan Singh and Rahul gandhi.As AICC General Secretary Janardan Dwivedi told reporters in New Delhi, there were three decisive factors for party’s good performance – leadership of the government by the Prime Minister, leadership of UPA by Sonia Gandhi and leadership of campaign by Rahul. Let’s hope Rahul Gandhi will be dynamic in future also and he will take India to a new height. Another thing that makes me happy is BJP’s defeat. Finally the citizens of India taught them that we are against communal division .They got the price for brutalization of nuns and minorities in orissa and Karnataka and also ‘varun Gandhi’s hatred speech‘ incidents. And the left also got a strong verdict against there anti development and stupid policies. The people taught clowns like jayalalitha,prkash karat,pinarayi vijayan,mulayam that there are no more the pawns in there political game.

                          This election clearly shows the voice of youth also. We were urging for a youthful leadership and rahul Gandhi filled that gap. One major merit of this election is prominent personalities like Shashi Tharoor,Dayanidhi Maran,Rahul gandhi,chidambaram got elected. It is damp sure that they will take major responsibility  in the government under the dynamic leadership of Manmohan singh .So far India were lacking dynamic and youthful leaders like them. Lets hope under there leadership, India will move to a new height and our economic, social, health and educational condition will improve. So that by 2020, millions of NRI’s working in foreign country’s can come back and excel here.

I guess this election verdict is an answer given by common man for the following factors

1. The dream of some regional leaders, like if they get 20-30 seats and dominate in individual states, they can be the prime minister or assistant prime minister (e.g.: Mayavathi, jayalaitha, mulayam)

2. The anti minority, communal policies of BJP\RSS. (The people got fed up with incidents like brutalization of nuns and innocent ones in Orissa, recent attacks in Karnata/Manglore by self claimed moral polices of BJP\RSS,Malegaon Blasts stand, hatred speeches

3. Anti development policies of CPM. Communist party is a group of grand fathers  and they still think they are living in 70’s.They don’t bothered about, what people feel and all. They always think what they do is right and will get support from people for                         that. Finally the people taught a big lesson to karat (for anti                  development policies), pinarayi (for lavlin and his arrogant nature),bardan, mayavathi etc

4.      Unnecessary politicize of Lankan issue Instead of focusing on the growth and internal       problems of our country, the people who tried to gain mileage by focusing on a country’s internal affairs (that to by supporting a internationally banned group) got an answer.

                Congress got there fruit for good and efficient leadership of manmohan singh(with the ample support of sonia and others), hard work and efforts of Rahul Gandhi  for reaching  common man and there unity and joining with right regional aligns (like DMK,TC,NC,NF).

                           I guess overall it is a vote for secularism and secularist ideology. Lets hope in this period of global meltdown and all, new government will take our country to new height 

Trivia: when Shsashi taroor were campaigning in trivandrum, LDF slammed him that he is a American supporter and if he win, then he will Americanise Kerala. For that he answered if Bush would have been supported me, then I would have been sitting in America now (America voted against him for UN General Secretary election)

2009 Election Manifesto – Some thoughts

                  Everyone is looking forward to election with much hope and expectations as usual. But the manifesto of the regional parties (who are undoubtedly strong member in decision making of major issues) of election 09 offers big disappointment. In fact it offers nothing beneficial to civilians in rural areas. Most of the parties are trying to brainwash the common man by offering free bicycle, color TV etc and cleverly covering up the basic needs like education, healthcare, empowerment and development of rural areas. Instead of giving free color TV, cable connection, and bicycle why can’t they try to improve the standard of education in rural areas, improve the health care and try to improve the job availability. By doing this standard of rural areas will definitely improve and also can reduce corruption and get over the social evils. Another big let down is offering cash for vote. poor people are voting for those who give cash to them  without thinking that they are goanna suffer for next five years under these idiots and nothing better is going to happen in there life for next five years. No wonder most of the political parties are not bothered about improving the education in rural areas. By doing this people will remain illiterate and they will clap hands and support most of the nonsense’s said and done by these leaders and also they can lute the public property easily.Anyways it is our duty to select the best person without.

No Hinglish , no computer — what an idea sirji

            It was shocking to see mulayam’s election manifesto. He told like if he comes to power, he will ban computer and English. Don’t know what prompt him to say like that. I feel like , he want to take India to  take stone age by doing these .Before ,VHP and bajrangdal were trying to talibanise India. Now mulayam joined them. I feel like, whether our politicians want to improve the standard and work for the development of the country or take our country to Stone Age. Before deciding the manifesto did the mulayam think even a minute that without knowledge in computer and English how the millions of students passed out from different colleges all over the country find job? There is no doubt that computerization in government offices and other areas helped to reduce corruption and it also helped to speed up the may other basic stuffs of common man. If he is genuinely against computerization, then why he is maintaining a website for his party (www.samajwadipartyindia.com ) and if he is against English , then why did he publish the articles in his website in English?(website have got an option to browse in Hindi or English).  Priyanka Gandhi properly replied to mulayams comedy by saying “who so ever made this manifesto, doesn’t seems serious”.

                             Anyways let’s hope we will be sending only the best peoples despite his cast color, religion to parliament and they will be leading  our great country to more development

Another politilcal stunt–Varun ghandhi Election Campaign Controversy

        It was so disappointing to hear varun ghandhi’s comment at a meeting in dalchant(Like “If somebody lifts a hand against Hindus, or thinks they are weak, there is nobody behind them, then I swear on the bhagavat ghita that I will cut off that hand”).As a young  leader and as he hailed frm ghandhi-nehru family nation had a big hope in him.Being a alumini of London School of Economics  and great grandson of nehru, he made a mockery of himself by this unnesary controversy and comment.Anyways itz pretty clear that it was a political stunt by him.He beacame a overnight star after that incident.In all news channels , newspapers were busy with his news and debates abt it.But he proved , he is a coward and a whacky politician by saying tht , the CD was doctored.If he told something in front of the public, that he strongly believe,then he should have strongly adhered to that

                     Anyways it was very disaapointing tht such a promising and aspiring young politician like varun told this.May let us wish his mentors correct him , so that  he will not come up with such controversial and useless  matters in future and he will be a promising and dynamic leader like his family members in future.

PS :  No matter if we r Hindu, Muslim or Christian, we all are made of blood and flesh. Then why should we let the politicians or who ever separate us each other and fight in the name of religion. Does that make any sense? .And do we need to support those leaders who create split among the people and make them fight in the name of religion and cast?
