India, read Mahabharata again..

December 9th, 2008

Indians need to read Mahabharata again. They forgot who they are and what they are, totally. The politicians has made the country a mockery of rotten policies and turned the country into a hub of cash generating ATMs for themselves. Read the Mahabharata again….

Outraged by the Mumbai attacks, I could not help but to spit my anger at someone and the best fit for my bill are us, we Indians. Have we forgot what was taught to us, have we forgot what was read to us ? India read the Mahabharata again…

Vyasa in his epic suggested 4 solutions for every problem (primarily political).

  1. Sama: A peaceful solution of political conciliation. Diplomacy is the first step you take to resolve an issue. Please do not foster even an idea of using this solution for Pakistan, as they are not worthy enough to persuade this solution. You do not teach Vedas to illiterates.
  2. Dana: Sacrifice if you can. We can look upon the wounds and compromise at every stage of life. Unfortunately all we were doing is this. We Indians are stuck with this principle for centuries now.
  3. Bheda: Sending a message of threat that something bad will happen if the we let the let the political conciliation fail. Oh sure! we know this better than anyone on the planet. India had witnessed the worst of the history in terms of destruction and death. Greedy nations squeezed India like mosquitoes and we always spilled our blood.
  4. Danda: If everything fails, then there will be fight. Now we are talking.

When you have to confront a situation when our neighbor has only but one agenda of inflicting terror and disruption of life, the first 3 methods are not options, they are failures. Mahabharata teaches us exactly that. Although there are no Bheeshmas or Dronas in Pakistan, I shall say there are innocent people across the border who care their families, fear god and try to be good. Reluctantly, I shall say that they are the Bheeshmas and Dronas on the opposite side. Unfortunately, there are millions of Duryodhans on the other side and some on our side too. The task of Pandavas was cut short by Lord Krishna. He took the onus and initiative and proved in one simple point that the Sama, Dana and Bheda doesn’t do good to both of the teams. By challenging the opponents to Danda and providing it as the only option to Pandavas, Lord Krishna made sure that Dharma prevails while Adharma is perished. Pakistan must be wiped out from the face of the planet. We do not have options. People talk about economy, prosperity and what not, but ask a family who really bore the brunt.

You should not try to cure cancer by applying a band-aid on top of it. You have to sacrifice that part of the body, forever. Pakistan is one such nation inhabited by more terrorists than human beings. They talk loud that India always blames Pakistan for everything that happens, but even if there is one incident out of one zillion, I care. One Indian life shall not equal the entire Pakistan, ever. This is a war that India has to fight. Eliminate them, its the only option.

Have more good suggestions, slap your own face.

…I wept

November 27th, 2008

There is nothing to write except to weep today. Such a horrendous act of terror and all I can do is to weep. I sincerey pray God to give all those strength and fortitude to stand up against this cowardice act.

Long live India!

Chak-De India!

August 26th, 2007

It was August the 25th, 2007, my 34th birthday, so happy because it was Saturday and I don’t have to ask my boss to take off that day. Happy because, at least some people take few seconds from their life, remembering this day and wish me many more returns. Most of us enjoy that day, a reminder to oneself for God has given us a LIFE and we have to live it, happily.

I was driving with my family and were routinely calling my parents that day to get more blessings and my Mom busted out the news saying that there were some bomb blasts in my home town. A home town I love so much, may be more than myself. I felt utterly disturbed deep in side my heart. Something pierced so hard that I stopped my brain to think any more as I could not handle that.

We were going to the theatre to watch ‘Chake De India’, as part of the small celebrations. Neither I avoided cutting it for those innocent people who have died, nor even think about them after the call, too much. I watched the movie, it was a great one. One, for the way the movie was made with excellent value and the other on the message that a nation will turn its story so quickly based on one’s success. There is this ‘Kabir Khan’ a traitor according to the Media and the people and there are these Lakshkar, Umma, Al-Ansari and dog-shit eating organizations. One was trying hard to wipe of his traitor image spending 7 years in the exile and coming back as s coach to the Indian National Women’s Hockey team, while the other always in exile, hiding their deathly faces, killing the innocents every single day.

Kabir Khan did not fight for the Winning Goal, he did not fight for uplifting Women’s Hockey, he did not fight to show the people that he is not a traitor, he definitely did not fight to satisfy his ego. He fought for one reason, and only one, INDIA. He found peace in making the Women’s team win the World Cup, he found peace in fighting hard to achieve that feet, he found happiness in making people push themselves harder, he found ecstasy in getting together a bunch of players as ‘Team’. Unfortunately its a movie and does this happen anywhere would be every one’s question. I would say yes, it happens not just in Hockey, but in every walk of life and every single day.

On the flip side are these terrorist organizations, supported by real traitors in the local Muslim community in my beloved home town, whose missions is not win something but to inflict wounds on people, their everyday walk of life and they think that they will achieve their mission. In doing this they forget some basis fundamentals. You can push a person, society and the nation only for sometime, and when they turn around, it will be an ocean, unstoppable and doesn’t care to bleed and will crush everything that comes in its way. Those fanatics should thank that we do not think like Americans, otherwise, they would have wiped every single Muslim from India, but they don’t and they will not, because there are people like Kabir Khan who believe in their Nation, who believe in people, the society and themselves.

One day, the so called Jihad will be wiped out, Just like Australians loosing the finals in the movie. Of course the later was a movie and drama, but the former can one day be the reality.

Chak De INDIA!
