I am inhabited to the part of the part of world where a law takes no action no matter if it is a high court or session court. In this subjugated chorus, the laws that are draconian and black are only ones that hit the execution. The laws which can bring justice, ensure misuse and abuse of power barely are put forth. Despite the favorable and selected implementation of laws, lawlessness is running down the veins of the persons who constitute these. It is authenticated now, the mere enforcement of laws, acts and parts are just restricted within the brim of a sacred book of constitution, and be it our indigenous or Indian. The harsh fact is that everyone is in race to champion the ethos of democracy and aim to present their selves as hero’s and…

BJP barring Activists!

The condition of India is very sad specially in terms of justice and order. An Australian Greenpeace activist was not allowed to enter India despite having all relevant documents. Yes. You read it right and that did happen. This is the government’s new stunt. What are they afraid of? Free speech? 
Freedom of speech is something  our Constitution grants but is still subject to violation and prevention. How can we expect justice if our government itself is unjust? And this, my friends, is the bitter truth.

ISIS is not Islamic

image

Terror organisations such as ISIS are not only spreading death and chaos in the world but also insulting Islam and its followers.

They say they believe in God.
They think they fulfil Allah’s wish.
They kill in the name of Islam.
Everything they do, they say for Islam.

Really?
Does Islam asks to kill innocent people? Does Islam orders to kill children who go to school because of education? Does Islam wants the spread of terror and destruction?

No. Not at all. Islam indeed is a very peaceful religion. The Quran actually is against violence. So, the terror groups which claim that they follow Islam do not do so actually. In reality, they are insulting God by spreading wrong in the name of God.

Fiction Friday – Zoya

“Zoya, wake up!” my mother called. “Zoya, hurry up, you’re getting late for school beta.”
“Huh?” I woke up thinking I belonged to a different world.
Then, my mother sprinkled some ice cold water on my face and I realized it was the same mean world and I had to get ready for that gloomy and rude place which they call school.
“Mummy, I think I have a headache,” I cried.
“Great, not again. Don’t give me stupid excuses for not going to school, okay?” she said.
“But, mummy, I’m really not feeling well today.”
“Zoya, please. Everyday you give me stupid excuses. Tell me, why don’t you feel like going to school?”
“It’s nothing. Fine, I’ll get ready.”
“You better get ready. You are well aware of the fact that I struggle to pay for your education.”

So, I had to go to that place again and look at the faces of those rude boys and girls.
As I entered that wretched classroom, Rahul, the guy I hated the most, started making faces at me.
“Oh! Look who’s here in school again,” he teased. “The girl who should be washing dishes in someone’s house.”
I felt my cheeks getting hot.
“Tell me, Zoya, where is your mother cleaning the floors these days? You know, actually, my mother is looking for someone to do the household chores. One of our servants fled.”

Criticizing the Indian Cricket Team? Think again.

252198787330

The Indian Cricket Team is one of the best in the world. We have such good players! Our team has the most fans (because China doesn’t play cricket, duh). We did pretty well in the world cup. We won all our matches except one.

However, some people are criticizing the team for losing against Australia. This does not make sense, at all. The Australian team is number one. There is no denying about the fact that they played amazingly well. Mitchell Johnson and Mitchell Starc performed marvelously. The game was tough, very tough, indeed. But the Indians did their best. No one wishes to lose, do they?

Sitting at your homes in front of the TV, being like ‘Damn it, they should have won! What are they doing? Gadhe kar kya rahe hain? Abbey maar yaar. Abbey dhang se bowling kar. Isko toh team se nikaal dena chaiye tha. Ye kar kya raha hai captain ban kar?’
Like, seriously? This is what you got? If you were in their place, you’d see how tough it can be. There is no point in doing this. People are burning posters and abusing. Some have even went to the level of criticizing Anushka Sharma for it. This is lame. Very lame.

A true fan is one which supports in both wins and loses. If you’re angry with the team, I’m sorry to say, but no, you ain’t a true fan and you ain’t a true lover. A good game is a good game, no matter what. This is the sportsman spirit. It’s just about playing it right and giving your best. Haar jeet toh chalti rehti hai, right?

Be bold, and stop being angry!

The Need to Be Humble!

4be842b033f0414180624307fea2b0d3

We achieve a lot of things in our lives.
From getting good marks to buying a new phone, we achieve.
From being popular on social media to getting a new job, we achieve.
From being in shape to eating in new places, we achieve.
Each and every one of us is an achiever and many things that we attain are difficult to attain.
We have reached our goals with great effort.
We have accomplished our needs and desires by struggle and endeavor.

But, all our achievements and efforts can go in vain by a single action of ours. Everything can go in the drains.
Our earned respect and dignity can vanish, and people may not like us anymore.

When we take excessive pride in ourselves and the deeds we do, we become high headed.
When we try to be superior than others that surround us, people think low about us.
When we show off, people realize it.

The biggest problem with many of us, is high-esteem and ego. We think of ourselves as the best. We feel that no one is better than us. We believe too much in our values and morality which may not necessarily be correct and ethically moral.
We don’t wish to bow down and accept our mistakes. We don’t believe in realizing where we went wrong.

What does it do for us? Does it make us good human beings? No, it certainly does not. We may be achievers, but when pride and ego sets in, we become losers.

Hence, there is a need to be humble. No matter what happens, we must bow down. We just need to do the right things. Respectable human beings are always humble in nature. Humility and humbleness add to the greatness of a person.
So, next time when you achieve something, don’t brag about it.
When you fight with a friend, just bow down and let it all go.
Help the people which surround you.
Remove ego and pride from your dictionary.
Be grateful to everyone. Smile. Smile, a lot, and feel happiness.  

Work hard, and stay humble! 🙂

Indian Railway!

People people everywhere,
not a place to stand.
Look at your right,
look at your left,
people you will see.
Look in your front,
just look behind,
people you will see.
Everywhere you go,
Everywhere you be,
People you will see.
Push, punch and walk,
Move it, fast!
Hold your bags yourself,
Or fight with the kulis.
Hold your nose, maybe.
Shop while the train comes?
And finally, after all the struggle, 
You’re safely in your train,
With a little less people!
This is the famed Indian Railway!

Humans – The World’s Most Dangerous Animals

destruction-cartoon-embed

In the zoo at Lusaka, Zambia, there is a cage where the notice reads, ‘The world’s most dangerous animal’. Inside the cage there is no animal but a mirror where you see yourself.

Yes, we’re the mightiest. Yes, we have brains. Yes, we are more capable than other species. But does it give us the right to do anything and everything and obstruct the lives of other species? Does it imply that we pollute the environment and make life difficult for other living organisms? Why should we twist the laws of nature? Why are we doing this? Does it make sense? Because, ultimately, it will affect us as well. In fact, it already is.

The human population is growing and so is the consumption of natural resources. Global industrialization is at its highest. Nations are developing and people are developing. With so much technology, life is no more difficult. Life is not difficult for many of us, but it may be difficult for the generations to come. For our comforts and our luxuries, we are using up all the resources. We are filling up the atmosphere with hazardous gases. We are draining our trash in the drainage system of the world. We are cutting down our trees and forests. We are destroying the natural habitats of many species.  We are polluting the oceans and the seas. We are even adding up to the junk in space. Why are we doing this so indiscriminately? For greed? We must remember, there our other generations to come. It is high time we decide how we want to leave this planet for our future generation. Its high time now, that we decide.

In the words of Mr Lester Brown, “We have not inherited this earth from our forefathers; we have borrowed it from our children.”

Dead Wreckoning – The Poem That Taught Me A Lesson About Drinking And Driving In My Teenage Years

Caffeine and Fairydust

When I was a teenager I gave my mom grey hair. I snuck out all the time and dated bad boys. She decided to nip it in the bud by making me read this poem… for some reason it scarred me for life and really opened my eyes when it came to the dangers of drinking and driving or getting into a car with someone who was intoxicated. I know it’s a lame parent thing, but the truth of the matter is that these dangers are real. These things happen.

Anyway, here it is… get your tissues ready.

Indian Widows Celebrate Holi, Defy Traditions

TGNR

Thousands of widows in the holy cities of Vrindavan and Varanasi doused their white mourning garb with splashes of vibrant colors during this years celebration of Holi, welcoming spring radiantly with the rest of India and the world.  For many, it had been decades since the fuchsia, green, blue, and yellow gulal powders covered their bodies due to strict Indian custom which prohibits widows from participating in festivals.  The NGO Sulabh International has worked for years to eliminate this and the many other taboos attached to widows.  Holi 2015 marked a record turnout: Over 1,000 ashram-bound widows in Vrindavan alone filled the streets to sing traditional Holi songs and dance while 3,000 lbs of flower petals filled the air.
