Cruelty is in the air   1 comment

I read these two articles in Mumbai mirror today in their World news section


Parents plead guilty to sex with son, 9

A Sydney woman, who along with her husband were charged with multiple offences in November 2009, has pleaded guilty to having sex with her nine-year-old son. The woman, 48, and her 56-year-old husband were charged with offences related to repeated sexual assault of their now 10-year-old son during 2009 at the family home at Peakhurst in Sydney’s south, reports the Australian.The couple allegedly made video recordings, which were later posted online…..

Innocence lost-Man puts 8-year-old son up for sale in slave auction
China: Chained to a metal post, this fear-stricken boy of eight is being sold by his despicable dad in a modern version of a slave auction. The father made a sign showing the child’s name and age and offered him to passers-by in the street.A small crowd soon gathered around the boy and some of those who were interested in buying him asked if he was a reliable worker…..

What are the so called educated people doing? Letting children get
sold for a few hundred dollars or so? Why don’t Governments all over the world, focus upon the education and the rights of children rather than sending satellites to space, and spending multi-billion to find if there are other creatures on other planets?

I wonder where the child rights are and why isn’t there a stricter
vigilant law to ensure the safety of children from parents who torture children and also parents are paedophiles?

Paedophilia is a crime just like murder, where a life is
lost completely. But it’s worse in paedophilia, as the minors have to
live with the trauma and helplessness for their entire lives, yet
these manic sons of bitch paedophiles go scot free, or a maximum of a decade of a jail term is sentenced.

Why doesn’t the UNICEF, which has the G8 Committee and several other committees, do something about the miserable pitiful condition of the children who are deprived of their childhood schooling, drawing,crafts, picnics – instead they are being forced to take up tough jobs as a labourer, miner, boot-polishers and all the other low life jobs.

Children from the under-developed as well as the developing countries are in a traumatic state and that’s what they would be giving as fathers to their children too-since they don’t know what a “real childhood” is. They need help and their desperate condition needs to be addressed.

Children from all over the world and especially from countries like India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal are the targets of human traffickers.

The girl child is forced into prostitution while the boys are used by the drug kingpins and other criminals to generate more money to their earnings.

Slumdog Millionare the Oscar winning movie featured these real stories in a flimsy manner. Here in India, the children are kidnapped from the slums, and sold to the dadas, who hire some butcher to forcefully handicap them, of course without any consent of the child. (Anyways who would wish to be a handicap?)

Then after their wounds are healed they are sent to traffic signals to beg, sometimes they are taught some old bollywood devotional song to get that extra rupee.No food, shelter or clothing for these street urchins. They are the ones that offer to clean your window shield when you are stuck in the traffic.
In many houses the maid brings in her daughter to work along with her,shouldn’t the maids daughter be in school learning some alphabets.

They are the ones that grow up and become chain snatchers, mobile
thieves, pick-pocketers to meet their needs. What other way do they have? They were denied education by the huge society, they were denied shelter and were denied good hygienic food.

Its high time we stop blaming and do some bit from our side towards humanity.

We talk ungenerously about the menace that the street urchins and the chain snatchers create, but ask yourself, would it be so if they were literate if not educated like you and me?

Please babus and netas wake up, its work time you lazy ass.

Globally it is known that, Children in Africa lose their childhood mining for the global demand for diamonds. They are denied nutrition and education. All they know is the heat and the whip. What do we do about this ? Nothing….

Golbally, Paedophilia is common everywhere, like all other crimes these are also of the hush hush manner. The recent headlines of the news papers tell us of the pitiful state of the altar boys who are forced by the parish priests to have a sexual relation with them. These stories are not uncommon. They are there everywhere. Even in India

All I want to address that why don’t we want to look after the ones
those who have come from us and why won’t we help them?

Children in our country are still hit by their seniors, at home, at school, why?

How would you feel if you are hit by your boss in front of the whole office? They too have self-respect like us and they should be treated like a human offspring.

I say

BE A REAL HUMAN AND STOP CRUELTY TO HUMANS.

Dreaded lines of Homosexuality   1 comment

Vatsayana, the Indian legend who wrote the KamaSutra, left behind a legacy which the whole world embraces, not because they are particularly interested in the Indian works but because of the highly pleasurable fantasies that the word ‘sex’ leaves behind.

When I went to visit the Ajanta and Ellora caves and the Elephanta caves, I was somewhat young to understand the male female bonding beyond the terms of friendship. I saw many statues greatly carved, some of men and some of women, some of the mythological gods and goddesses. Some statues to my amazement had a man with two women, by his sides. Some however had two women standing side by side in a seducing manner. These things never entered my mind until I grew up and saw some of the snaps that we took then. I realised that the gay-lesbianism is not western concept, but a global one that was encountered by people of all centuries.

The “sex” topic has always been a taboo in the Indian household, with superstitions around such talks. That is why even a huge number of people today, still don’t educate their children about protective sex, HIV and AIDS. Yet India has been the pioneer in several sciences today, even the science of sex.

Gay and lesbianism must have been existent in the Indian society then, even in the Before Christ Era, but they were kept behind the doors to avoid social embarrassments. These were the “hush-hush affairs” of those days.

Somehow in the past half decade I wasn’t quite able to digest the idea of a man making love to a man, my little suspicious brain started to imagine how two sweaty, “beardy”, “moustachey”, naked men would make love?

Who decided on what’s right and normal and what’s not? These rules have come down from history, nothing more, say the homosexual sympathisers. Sometime back when article 377 was amended in India I devoted a lot of thought on these issues.

I thought, what was on their minds? Were they so completely engulfed by the lust of the bodies? Were these homosexuals so empty headed that they had nothing to think of other than burning in the desire to make love to a fellow man or a woman? What were they thinking?

What made them attract to each other? With having the same genital organs how could they satiate the feeling of love of the opposite sex? In a straight relationship the blessed loving couple who are much in love feel the attraction towards one another; did they feel the same attraction too? I was hugely confused.
Imagine my son fully grown up, coming home and telling me, “Ma, I want to get married, can I bring home my partner tomorrow?” to this I respond, ‘’tell me her name beta” and my son says, ‘’it’s gonna be a surprise,” to which I unfortunately agree.

Then comes the day of meeting the bride, ………….err, sorry, GROOM. Who will inherit my jewellery? My son’s got a DAMAAD for us……NAHI I scream as I dream this futuristic haunted dream of “gay-giri”.

Baba Ramdev the “new age messiah of yoga”, travelling around the globe and serving the humanity by teaching the art of yoga and its benefits, once quoted that homosexuality is a psychological disease.

I completely agreed with him for some time and I felt that someone had to treat these miserable homos. In fact our country would be soon turning into a country of homosexuals who had no control over their bodies. I tried to apply many a theory as to why this happens, but was unsuccessful.

Then I realised that all is made by God, and I resentfully agreed that a homosexual person if loyal to his/her partner is not harming the society, just like a married couple doesn’t harm a society.

The issue of morality is of great importance here, like in a marriage. Not only on an emotional level but also on a physical level it is always safe to have just one partner and be loyal to them. We can keep so many sexually transmitted diseases at bay by loyalty towards our partner. This way, the bond of love develops and gradually increases, giving heightened pleasure at the act.

“They” too equally have the right to live with dignity and respect, as long as they are not following the way of sex workers and are loyal to their partners, which according to me should be the way for heterosexuals too.

Beastly Human   Leave a comment

Man is a social animal and bonds well with his kind. Man can’t live alone, he needs more than a companion, to live.

Man has been like this since the creation. Even in the stone age times, he went hunting with his kind. Man has always been living in a community.

He then realized that if he had to live peacefully in a community, he had to have certain rules. Then they came up with their rules.

Every community in the ancient world up to this day has their specific code of conduct. In the times when man had not yet deciphered the art of writing, he painted in his caves all that he saw around.

Slowly over the centuries man developed the art of writing. So, he had moved from the pictorial representation of his thoughts and deeds. Man started clothing himself and reproduced as many as he could. Slowly and gradually his number started growing, and now he has managed to fill the earth, with different communities, different races and different skin coloured people. They have different ways of conduct, speak different languages and look different from each other.

All over the earth, since the evolution till date, man has looked at nature for every need of his, be it food, clothing or shelter. In the pre-historic times the primitive man ate tubers and roots and hunted for his survival.

He dressed with the skins of the animals that he had hunted and used their teeth and bones as ornaments; they even sharpened their bones to form primitive spheres and arrows. They even sharpened stones in order to mash and cut the fruits and tubers.

In those days, they didn’t have the spices and almost ate semi-cooked food. They followed the sun and the moon to be their Gods. They bathed in the natural springs, lakes, rivers and water-falls. They were not ashamed of their nudity. They made clans and lived together, in modern times clans have taken the shape of huge concrete cities. They lived under the trees and on mountains.

Since then we have been using up our natural-resources and we do nothing to fill them up a little bit.

We are increasing in number day in day out, and with every “one” increase we will need more food, more electricity and more water. Where do we get these from? We have huge demands but the supply is limited. We can’t plant trees and expect them to grow fully in ten days. The forests that have been wiped out have resulted in climatic conditions that affect us drastically. The rains are scanty; the summer heat is unbearable even if we stay indoors.

In India, soon in a decade or two we will have more respiratory diseases, thanks to urbanization, no green spaces and thanks to the fat Babus (the so called Government Servants) that give the Builders & Developers, the permission to build towers on the pasture lands and what not…

We will have lesser immunity and our children will never experience the serenity of nature unless they are taken to vacations to witness the greenery. As a result of the above factors we can assume that the prices of basic necessities will increase, the inflation will raise, yet the population won’t decline, taking us to the worst of times. There will be increased poverty as a result of which heinous as well as petty crimes will increase. People, rich and poor will forget the meaning of peace, and the meaning of life will be to earn bread and butter, nothing else. This is a broader view which nobody is willing to see.

Organic farming methods have been long forgotten, we directly eat foods that are more chemical than natural.

So what do we expect in return?

Diseases, we will be witnessing a number of diseases due to these chemicals in the long run. These chemicals get deposited in the intestinal tracts of our body and who knows they must be producing hazardous effects.

What we need to do now is

    Stop “urbanizing” an already urban settlement

    Let there be greenery even in the urban structures, let the cities be planned in such a manner. (Now I would not call Mumbai a “real & proper urban settlement”, but a cluttered one for sure)

    The government should educate the “below poverty liners” of the hazards of having more stomachs than they can feed.

    Let us move towards small towns, where there is a possibility of having properly planned urban settlements

    Children should not be educated just academically, i.e. supposed to be literacy, rather they should be treated as citizens of tomorrow and should be taught the importance of nature which is directly related to the betterment of all mankind

    Let us eat as much as we need to, let us say no to gluttony

    Let us have just as much clothes as we need

    Let us use all our resources scarcely. (Do you know all our pasture lands meant for grazing the cattle is soon vanishing and are being replaced by factories?)

    Let us get closer to Mother Nature, from her we come and to her we go. (We are made of Panch Mahabhuts (Five Elements) viz, earth, water, air, space and fire. These are the Five elements of nature, which every living being is a part of.)

The other day I read that a particular species of rat has just become extinct. People might laugh at this, but it’s a serious issue. We have come to know of some species getting extinct, maybe we don’t know there might be many types of plants and animal species which are getting extinct due to the adverse climatic changes plus their habitats are fast being encroached by a huge species of two legged beast, called the Beastly Human…which never stops “eating”

The Unbelievers   1 comment

“Shokale uthiya ami bhalo mone boli,
Aami jano aaj k bhalo hoye choli,
Aadesh kore ja mor guru jone,
Aami jano shei kaj kori bhalo mone.”

In the hustle-bustle of this busy life we might never get to say a prayer. We are so preoccupied with the tangles that we have bound ourselves with.

And we visit those sacred temples with a firm belief that God would only answer our selfish prayers if we happen to stand in long queues with a fasting stomach since the wee hours to just get one glimpse of our holy deities.

We have been taught from generations to focus upon these beliefs related to God. Where did such beliefs come from?

I guess they have been coming down from the ancient family tree to the present generation. People from all walks of life be it the common man or the super star, they all believe in the calmanac, the shubh mahurat.

Mr. Bachchan with his family visits the holy Siddhivinayak temple and the Tirupati Balaji. Rani Mukherji is a great devotee of the Shirdi Sai Baba. How much does God mean to all of us? Is God pleased with the “chadava” (offering) we offer him in the temples? People all over the world have different perspectives of God.

However in our country India, we have a vast volume of believers. We have believers that believe that God is Shiv Swayambhu which means that he was never created by any one, there are the devotees of Durga and Lakshmi with their different names and avatars that people in different parts of India worship.

Then there are the believers of the Ganapati. Being the son of Shiv and Parvati, Ganesh is worshipped first in any puja to make it more successful and the ancient rituals call for worshipping Ganesh before proceeding with the worship of any other deity.

Then there is a huge following for Vishnu with his various forms and names, some call him Krishna, some call him Narayan, some even Jaggannath and some Ram.

With our country being secular, we also have a great number of Jains, Sikhs, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists and Parsis. Some call him Allah, some call him Jehovah and yet some call him Ahura Mazda. With a huge population and with varied beliefs, we keep discriminating as to which religion is the best.

But to me all these names are for that One, I might call him with a name I would like to call him by, still he’ll answer me.

The Hindus among themselves believe in one deity and they do not believe in the other deity, though they bow but they don’t pray to the other deity. A Shaivik does not worship Vishnu. They feel that Shiv would be offended. Likewise there are other religions which do not entertain the outsiders, Parsis best suit this category.

Then there are Christians-catholic and the believers. Catholics love Jesus as well as mother Mary and they idol worship them, believers however don’t worship mother Mary and keep their prayers only to God through Jesus. They believe that Jesus gave his life for the whole world and that he was the holy lamb of God, and because of Jesus they’ve come to know God, in other words Jesus is the son of God.

Muslims have the Shia and Sunni variants though I don’t know much about these variants.Jews believe in the old-testament, till before the time Jesus was born. They believe that their messiah is yet to come and Jesus was not their messiah.

With all this confusion and discrimination in the name of religion I hope I did justice to explain the various beliefs of “devout religious human beings”.

They perform different rituals, go on fasting for a month, crawl all the way to temple to sanctify themselves of their sins, but is it really helpful?

In Tamilnadu, there are a group of followers who pierce their cheeks, and let a steel rod pass through it in the name of religion. Isn’t that insane? People still perform animal sacrifices to worship Kali. In the ancient times men were sacrificed for certain rituals for worshipping Kali.

The new trend since couple of decades is that has the “world speaking is about the jihadis aka terrorists, who kill in the name of Allah”. They don’t want to believe that we all that is the entire creation is Allah’s and they have no authority to kill another fellow human on the grounds that we are infidels.

As for me, I feel that God is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent which means he is everywhere is all-knowing and can do everything. Who are the true infidels then? And who are the true believers then of a God whichever name you may want to call with…

The infidels are those that bribe God so that they may succeed a particular task. Those who are corrupt, stir hatred, liars, cheaters, who preach yet, do not practice what they preach.

God loves those who are honest, loving, kind, helpful, who practice the good old virtues hard to find in these times.

You don’t need several mantras to reach God, you just need a thankful heart. You can pray any where any time and there is someone who is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent hearing you. He is ever ready to help his true believers.

People say that God punishes, it’s not God that punishes, it is their wrong deeds or the karma.

Why blame God unnecessarily? God gave us the brain and the conscience to know what is right from the wrong, if still for our selfish motives we keep pursuing all that is wrong we will stumble and fall.

What if you decide to walk on a dark road without a torch despite having a torch? It’s foolishness.

Sir Issac Newton had a very interesting theory related to karma, he stated among his works of the law of motion, that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. So in case even if you don’t believe in God you ought to believe that you reap what you sow, God is blameless.

All rituals, all fasts and all the self implicated tortures are completely unnecessary.

God knows what’s in your heart, you don’t have to prove him anything. Let us all be truthful in what we think, say and do.Let think, say and do everything in co-ordination. That should be the guiding light for people of every faith.

It happens, shit happens…….   Leave a comment

Oh now that our dear Bhaarat Mata (or that should be “Mother India”) has embraced the western culture, we do experience a lot of ‘Fusion’ in the urban areas.

‘Fusion’ in respect of the fashion, page 3 parties, cuisine etc. The British came to our country and left behind a lot of memoirs-The Victoria terminal, the Gateway of India, the Bombay High Court etc naming only a few.

Our western counterparts are developed countries with booming economy. They have schools for all children of their country, the latest weapons to secure their nationals, they emphasize on women power and some-how at any cost and any ways, want to rule the world. They are the most civilized of people with “accented” English, and we Indians work here according to their timings in our BPOs.

Since the world is a small place, our western folks come here to experience the country of snake charmers and Naga sadhus and they are entertained more than an Indian brother welcomes his other Indian brother.

They like to see our naked little children defecating on the pavements. They quickly grab their cameras and roll down the windows of their cars to capture that very special moment. They like to see the Indian low life.

Some how we Indians are very welcoming and get fooled easily, there were Vibhishans in our own country and that is what helped the British do the “raaj”.

Hundreds of men were killed in the name of freedom fight and their widows were taken away by the white skinned to be their concubines.

Their mantra was to divide and rule which has been adopted stealthily by all our politicians in the present era too.

Now, most of our politicians have a criminal record and they manage to get that ticket before the elections. Though they never think for the betterment of our nation, they manage to become member of the parliaments – Lok sabha and the Rajya sabha.

There are politicians also who have changed parties like we change our under garments. Apne ko kya karne ka hai? (What we have got to do?) – is their personal slogan.

White is what they are always clad in, yet their hearts are so black. They are corrupt, vulgar and stirrers of violence. They are contradictory, opportunists. They feel the need to walk down the streets and voice a cause just before their elections, fearing the opposition might win. They are most interested about their Gaddi (The coveted Chair)

They stir up differences in the name of religion, caste and the native place of birth. Calling them serpents is an understatement.

Why are they so lazy? We have pot holes and pot holes and then another pot hole. No lights on the connecting highways. No continuous water supply, no uninterrupted electricity.

O one slogan that I feel best suits them is “apna kaam banta, toh ma *&^%^$# janta.” (As long as we are happy, screw the world)

For the sake of winning the polls they get locals to create havoc across the city, public transport comes to a screeching halt and in some cases they are burnt down too.

None can move out of their houses. When these Netas and the Babus come to inaugurate a public place, they manage to be as late as possible given that they own the Gaddi and are in Raaj.

Their convoys take a toll on the traffic, they are given more security than they deserve. They are unimportant public figures and taking a glimpse at them, a lay man might be able to read their faces and say what they really are.

Why are they given so much security? What about us-the mango people … the aam aadmi? (the common man)

We are the pedestrians, the hawkers, the drivers, the students, the teachers, the doctors, the common Indian going about their businesses… – and there comes the boom, the stampede, the stone pelting, the lathi charge, the burning down of buses and trains.

Where does that leave us? During the two and a half day of gun battle and “homicide” on the fateful day of 26/11 we witnessed emotional as well as physical trauma, hundreds were injured and a huge number died too.

What were these politicians doing then? Sipping whiskey and watching the suspense unfold on their 44 inch plasma TV, eating chicken legs, discussing the status with higher party high command of what their position was after the terrorist attacks?

After the terrorist attacks, different people from different embassies had zeroed in on Mumbai to help their respective nationals.

But who were to help us, the Indian nationals?

The police here have no more than their age old service rifles and their pistols which are so old that they may get jammed at opening fire during a combat.

What’s the use of carrying useless Defence weapons if they don’t defend you from the enemy?

But our western “firangi” Police Departments have the latest arms and ammunition, to defend themselves as well as public.

As you know, most of the nations abroad have free education or have very nominal fees. They believe in 100% literacy, that is why their country is much more developed than ours though we have the second largest population in the world. They serve nutritious healthy food as well as milk in their schools.

As for us I read last year, one of the Mumba municipal schools were caught serving old tetrapacked milk way after its last consumption date to their students. My friend remember that late 90s song ‘it happens only in India.’

People abroad have state of the art hospitals and specialists, their medical facilities are way advanced.In fact I feel that on such grounds, India is lacking behind a century to come up to their standards in these areas.

We should only pick up from the others those virtues that would change us for the better.

Blindly aping others will, I feel, take us no further.

Gandhi’s Kama Shastra   Leave a comment

The other day I was reading an article in most favourite saturday newspaper – TOI Crest – about the father of the nation, and after what I read, I didn’t want to write father starting with a capital ‘f’. he might be deserving it, yet for me, he didn’t. So I found the article online and quote from it.

Here are some excerpts from the article that managed to disturb me. (It is an interview by Neelam Raj in Times of India Crest, of Jad Adams whose new book – ‘Gandhi: Naked Ambition’ has recently released in India)

[The next stage of his life engaging with sexuality was to increase his contact with women and girls, including physical contact. He certainly saw this as behaviour which would help strengthen him spiritually and, thus armed, he would better be able to act in India’s cause…..]

[Gandhi had a normal married life from his teens to his thirties when he decided to be chaste, and finally, in 1906, made a vow which settled the matter. The next phase of his life saw him ordering everyone else to be chaste as well, including newlyweds. At his ashram, men and women were housed separately, yet he encouraged the young to bathe and sleep together. “I sent the boys reputed to be mischievous and the innocent young girls to bathe at the same time,” he boasted, explaining carefully to them they were not to succumb to temptation. If ever they strayed, the vigilant Gandhi himself would adjudicate. He was of the view that people who wanted to fight for the nationalist cause in his service “have to observe perfect chastity, adopt poverty, follow truth and cultivate fearlessness”.]

[It is literally a matter of definition whether Gandhi was chaste or not. If chastity is taken simply to mean no penile penetration of another person, then Gandhi was chaste. If we use the term ‘sexual relations’ to refer only to the act of intercourse, then he did not engage in sexual relations. However, he did frequently put his hands on women, sleep naked with women, bathe with women and take massages from them. Most people would think of these things as sexual.” He took the censure of others over his sexual experiments as a sign that he ought to continue, as a further challenge to his spiritual nature. He explained, “If I stop sleeping together for all time it will mean that I have been mistaken. Otherwise why should I stop it? There is a limit to abstaining from it for the sake of my friends.” He was a very brave and also a very self-confident man.]

[Sleeping with one, then two teenaged girls (Manu, his 18-year-old grandniece, and then Abha, the wife of Gandhi’s grandnephew Kanu Gandhi) was behaviour that continued into 1948, when he was killed. I should mention that the women who gave him service were always willing; there was no shortage of people ready to do whatever Gandhi wanted, without question.]

[“It is the duty of every thoughtful Indian not to marry,” said Gandhi. “In case he is helpless in regard to marriage, he should abstain from sexual intercourse with his wife.” With sex not permissible even for procreation, wouldn’t it have been the end of the world as we know it?]

Now, all the while since I was born till the now, I and my family including my son and my folks have bowed to such a martyr. He was a simpleton who kept emphasizing on the virtue of simple living and high thinking.

He was called the naked fakir by the firangs that ruled us for 200 years, and the title ‘Mahatma’ was ordained to him by ‘thakur’ from the land of the great Ganges – Pandit Rabindranath Tagore – and that is how millions address him even today. I wonder how our kavi guru would feel if he happened to know this Gandhian kama shastra?

What would you and I call a person who is mature, who has a wife, is blessed with kids, is “actually” taking massages and sleeping nude with wives of others?

‘Pervert’ would be an understatement, isn’t it?

Why is there a difference if it is Gandhi? Because he managed to save his own blood and sacrificed the blood of millions of innocents, in the name of his so called Satyagraha and Simon go back movements.

His message an eye for an eye makes the whole nation blind is a slogan that’s by heart of everyone since grade 5.

He had a great deal of security, fan following, and he lured millions with his sweet coated bitter tongue. He was a preacher according to me and he practiced only as much as he could, that is, if he felt he should.

He laid down great examples of the saints and the prophets of the ancient, to argue, but how much did he follow them? I read that he carried the Bible-the word of God for millions of the Christian faith and of course of other faiths also, any one who believes in Jesus knows the word of the new testament by heart. Need less to say, does it look from any angle that he even believed in Jesus? I feel that the bible fell in the wrong hands, in the hands of one who preaches, but doesn’t practice.

The holy bible says-

22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
23 The man said,
“This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of man.”
24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

Matthew 5:28 NIV
But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Now tell me, why would a man and as elevated as Gandhi want to sleep with his grand-niece and the wife of his grand nephew?

Because of his so called experiments with the truth? Isn’t that ridiculous? A man of his standing, a public figure who had millions of desi as well as videsi devotees?

What difference is there now between a pervert and the pious Gandhi? Is there any difference between a man who puts posters of naked women in his bedroom and the Mahatma?

He loved the idea that he’s being worshiped all over the world, so he decided that he would like to make a preachy bible of his own, in his own words, justifying just about every wrong that he’s doing. It’s like we say that there are people who believe killing people in the name of God, in other words we call them terrorists, so did this old man, sorry the ever-green man; with his belief in experimenting with his truths. He knew exactly in his heart what he was upto and splashed dust into the eyes of his devotees by his blasphemies of experiments.

Would you call a saint, a modern one of course given their attachments towards drugs and women and fame and last but not the least their names beginning with a sri? Sri in hindu religion refers to a respected one. I will answer this with a strict no. Then why respect Gandhi?

Tell me what did he achieve by making men and women of his ashram sleep together, and men and women who were not husbands and wives to bathe together? Was he a porno movie director?

Oh! He adored nudity, loved to watch those ripe mangoes beneath a wet white sari, dripping droplets of water from those wet black strands of hair, the little dew drops on that dusky skin, what could be more appealing to a man? To go deeper beneath the sari and grab a glimpse of the divine woman in the nude, of course in the name of experiment darling!

Lust not respect is what he had in his heart for several if not all women, otherwise he wouldn’t name them so openly, given the Indian conservative background and the sexual stains that would tarnish these women for decades and centuries to come.

He preached that it was the duty of every thoughtful Indian not to marry.

I ask why?

If marriage is so bad then my parents, their parents and their ancestors and your parents, your ancestors and gandhi’s parents and gandhi’s ancestors and gandhi’s children and their grandchildren are bloody thoughtless Indians who don’t understand their duty. But, what tamasha he did was an exalted form of duty-tarnishing his own name and respect, hurting the sentiments of some few million followers, tarnishing the names of these poor women who never knew Gandhi would reveal their identities in his writings.

I don’t understand what I would say to my son if he said that engaging with women and young girls would strengthen him spiritually and would help him in a national cause? What would you say as a parent? Or as a child if your father said the same thing to you? Better what would you say to your husband who believes in such delusions? I guess you’ll have to take him to the nearest well trained psychiatrist.

Buddha, the first master, left his wife, son, his royalty for spirituality. If he stayed in his huge palace in luxuries sleeping besides a beautiful wife, would he be able to attain the enlightenment that only he attained in his time, the world never had a second Buddha. He is hallowed and his teachings are followed with reverence worldwide.

I am not comparing anyone with Buddha. But as far as for me, I am ashamed and hurt after knowing all this about Gandhi.

What are we looking forward to with millions of Gandhi followers who read this book and then his own writings ?

Will they take these experiments of his to their hearts and start experimenting themselves on the Gandhian roads? If such is the case we are truly threatened, for I follow Gandhi, my family does and so many other men do.

Was Gandhi’s vision for an India – a “Perverted India” that had been turned on the bad road by Gandhi himself?

Urban India – Clutter / Chatter   Leave a comment

What I am about to write today is experienced by all of us.

I always keep on wondering why do all of us love nature? Why do we love the sight of lush green forests? Why do we love those mind refreshing waterfalls? Why are we so enchanted by the night sky? Remember how we gazed at the stars and the moon? How we love to immerse our feet in the sea, and how we love to take a dip in the lake? It’s just so amazing!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you noticed that in Urban India, there is chatter everywhere, people say they have no peace though they have all that a person could hope for. They have the food they like to eat, they can spend in that luxurious specialty restaurant, they go to the spa to feel rejuvenated and that special herbal message gives them the lift.

The clothes, they buy from the high street malls where the prices are jaw dropping exorbitant. They stay at their posh decorated apartments in the suburbs. They own the latest chauffeur driven SUVs, they just sit on the back seat, focusing on how their day will proceed, whom to meet, where to meet and the thought of grabbing that “multimillion deal” keeps their minds occupied.

They have several personal assistants from the lower strata to arrange that corporate lunch with their valuable clients. They keep asking God to give them more and more and they know the tricks to climb the hard corporate ladder.

They are their boss’s pets and the boss is completely lost when they are not around. They get those enviable salaries, plus all the perks plus their loans are paid by their companies, they are the asset of their organizations. They have the corner cabin and “they” are foreign returned executives who work hard and party harder.

They are proud to announce at any point of time that they are the target achievers and they work for a good fifteen hours, that’s quite above average, that’s why they are above average. They air-travel extensively to different metros to hold meetings. So they have well more than what they need. Yet they want more. Why are they so greedy?

On a recent trip to Mysore & nearby areas, I was so absorbed by the simplicity of these places and cuisine and the sandal wood fragrance.

I felt so close to myself and realized that things are better when they are simple and that is how all things are, we complicate them.

Actually I feel that when one gets the fragrance of those “stiff green notes” they begin to complicate themselves. How far have people gone for that extra money?

They have pushed themselves their abilities, sacrificed family time for those few zeros. What good are those zeros if they don’t give you the peace of mind ??

And I would like to add that people would do anything for those zeros-they murder, commit adultery, spread rumors, do all sorts of filthy things for that extra zero.

They simply don’t understand that with every extra zero they are adding an extra zero in their lives.

They like complicated life. They are so used to it that they barely want to change. They think that complication is normal.

On my travel, I had been to a very interesting place called Red hills. That place was surrounded by greenery and had eight lakes bordering it.

Those lakes had sky blue unpolluted waters, I could see the bed of the lake, it was so clear. Even at exact noon it didn’t feel like the sun’s scorching you.

Little children dressed modestly were playing with a football. It was breezy and there was a certain chill in the air. There were huge eucalyptus trees everywhere, maybe that’s why the air was so chilly.

The children waved at us when we were passing them. We got down of our car to grab the scenic beauty of this spot. I had never been so fortunate before, never visited a place so mystical before.

We had to climb the Red hills through the winding hats, and from the ghats the view was astonishing.

On the slopes of the hills we saw several graves of the deceased who lived there. They were Christians. Such humility!

The children I met, ranged from 5-13 looked so happy, may be I was never as happy when I was their age. They looked fearless. I had a fear of exams, tuition, a scolding from parents, etc, etc.

Simple is truly defined this way…I saw women washing clothes outside their huts on the slopes of the hills. Some had their charcoal stoves outside their huts and they cooked there. The sight of a pot on those stoves with smoke emitting from them gave such a rural feel. I could hear a song being played on someone’s radio, the sound was remotely distinct.

I seldom got this opportunity to witness this sort of a silence that I witnessed being there. Silence was all they knew and was a part of their daily lives. No honking, no loud noises. Just the wind passing through the leaves and the chirping of the birds is all that they knew.

They had no clue where we came from, how complicated our lives were. All they did was wave and smile at us. One strange thing I noticed that, none of the village folks were wearing spectacles, none of them wearing hearing aids, none walking with a stick although many among them were old.

I guess none liked to sit idle in front of their “idiot boxes”. They were all active from children to the elders, all had physical work. And because, there are no much transportation, people prefer to walk and do their chores themselves.

I didn’t want to come back, I wanted to stay there for the eternity, but what to do?

Complication is what we urban people choose to quench our greed.

Greenery always brings peace to me, its soothing. It’s peaceful and the tranquil that it brings is unmatchable. I don’t have much greenery near our home, it’s all crowded with people from all different walks.

Everyone seems to be searching for their silent place of surrender. Let us be simple, let us be happy with what we have and let us thank the Almighty for his abundant blessings. Whenever I feel greedy I tell myself that God has given me as much as I can handle, so in good time and cause if God sees the necessity he will give me the ability to handle more and that’s when he will bless me with more.

Moreover our minds keep on thinking, dreaming, cursing, and harboring negative thoughts. That is the chatter that disturbs us.

For bringing peace into our lives, we need to quieten our loud mind. Take a break and look within ourselves for that simple person with lesser needs in us.
