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……

Are You Funding Terrorism

Hi Dhidhi , I brought three good movies from Burma bazaar on Sunday. Saritha(she is my colleague) posed for a moment and told me, “anish you know something ,Actually pirated cd’s are distributed by terrorist’s and it is one of the major source of income for them, Last week I have seen a documentary in Discovery channel. In that they explained the fund sources of Terrorist. Among that pirated DVDs are a major one. So by buying that you are literally funding them”. When I heard I got shocked because it was  new information for me. Even though I’m not a movie junky, I used get pirated cd from Burma bazaar occasionally because they give best DVD’s for cheap rate like 20-30 rupees and all(Some times you will get the movie before that released in India). And same time if we go to planetM or music world we have to spend minimum 200 bucks for a good English movie. So in fact I didn’t want to believe that, but anyways I googled about it. The result was shocking. What I read was more than saritha told me.

 The movie\music pirates have strong links with the terrorist organizations .The money raised from pirated movie\music cd\ DVD is going to secret funding of organizations like the LTTE, AL QUIDA, and Lashqar -ie-toiba etc. In one of the article I read that film piracy can be even more profitable than drug trafficking or other enterprises commonly linked to organized crime. Because compared to drugs and smuggling, manufacturing and distribution of pirated DVD’s are easy and safe. The reports says a pirated DVD made in Malaysia for 70 cents is marked up more than 1,000% and sold in London for about $9. “The profit margin is more than three times higher than the mark-up for Iranian heroin and higher than the profit from Columbian cocaine,” the report says.

So it is time for us to take a decision like, do we need to support another Mumbai 26\11 or Bangalore bomb blast. Now a day’s company’s like Moser Baer, Eros started selling DVD’s at a cheap rate like 30-50.so why can’t we buy those original cd’s instead of  sponsoring our own destruction.think about it………

PS : We have to raise awarness about this because it is not a  silly issue that we can ignore just like that

Enough is Enough – Mumbai Terror Attack

On nov-27 many of them like me got up by hearing the shocking news-Mumbai terror attack. Now a days the bomb blast, terror attack are not a ‘big news’, it happens frequently (whom we should blame 4 this).But still it was shocking, cruel and unbelievable. They slaughtered civilians like animals .It was against the simple laws of humanity (Which religion/god teaches to kill common man, is’t Islam, but I heard prophet Mohamed taught to love people not 2 kill people for any reason).

 

When my sister told abt this in the morning,I didn’t bothered abt this much ,coz now a days it happens frequently. But once I switched on the TV and saw wht was the actual matter, I become shell shocked (It remained me again there is no security for any one in anywhere even in top five star hotels). It was so sad to see politicians were trying to get benefit from this instead of stay united and fight against them single handedly. Where was Mr. raj Thackeray and his MNS when the terrorist slaughtered the Mum bait’s. We should throw away these nonsense politicians, who try 2 gain personal benefits by separating peoples and making them fight each other in the name of cast, province, religion or wht ever. The success of this operation taught us and remind us that India is one and all the Indians should stay united against all the internal and external attack (despite whether u r north Indian or south Indian or Hindu or Muslim etc).

Finally enough is enough. Now it’s the time for government to take strict action to counter terrorism (no matter its internal or external).don’t use this tragic thing for gaining political benefits. We shd learn from USA (like how they bounced back after 9/11 attack. Did any terror attack happen in usa after 9/11 attack.).

PS: We salute each of the warriors who laid their lives and also all commandos, ATS members, etc who risked there lives to counter this attack. We also remember and honour those among us who aren’t here anymore.
