Rediff Headline - Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai delivers his address after recieving the Indira Gandhi Peace Award from President A P J Abdul Kalam in Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi on Sunday.

Am I the only one who thinks this is in bad taste? Indira Gandhi Peace award? Peace and Indira in the same breadth. Nauseous? Or rolling on the floor laughing?

Does anybody get it?

Who am I?

In a way, I admire all the Muslim associations in and around US for their attitude in promoting their religion the past few years. They have conducted seminars, open forums, open house and many other such activities that show that their religion is not about hatred and killing.

It takes something more than belief to be proud of who you are and what makes you, you. Sadly, the pride in ourselves is quite lost in many. There are so many attributes to be proud of, but I find that many take more effort to disassociate themselves from who they are!

Today, there is a whole generation of Indians who identify themselves more with other countries than with India. We talk better English than an Englishman and have no idea how to converse/read/write our mother tongue. When asked about creation, most say Adam & Eve and forget Brahma, Siva & Vishnu.

But, why is that Muslim women around the world are adopting wearing a hijab (even) in countries where they are not forced?

Slaughter India

Hurriyat leaders Sajjad Lone said Afzal's execution will have a spillover effect in the Valley and claimed that he did not get a 'fair trial' to prove his innocence in the high-profile case - "If he was not guilty and still his son becomes an orphan because he did not have a defense, who will take the responsibility?"

Afzal's family, which met him, has said that he was not willing to submit any clemency petition and the family members could do as their own initiative.

Where is your pride, India? He attacked the highest representative of our democracy, and “hanging him will be a stigma on Indian democracy”?

Ms. Roy, if somebody rapes you, will you invite him home for dinner?

Irresponsible Dreams

How easy it is to blame others for who I am today! I am who I am because my parents, teachers, friends, relatives, neighbors, trees, plants made me this way.

There, I have said it. I have put it down in writing. Now whatever I say or do will not reflect up on me, the person I am, for I am who I am because of every single person I have met, seen, read about or known. It is so easy. I am blameless. I am carefree. And I go on living happily.

Dream on…

Irony, indeed!

'Saint' Sonia - A saint because she is responsible for spending our hard earned tax payers' money on her 'reelection'!

Outlook India - How is that the same magazine which wrote pages and pages on how India was actually in the dumps, when BJP came up with the 'India Shining' has had a complete turn around in a matter of two years, to have a cover page edition of 'India Smiling'?

And sure my dear brothers and sisters, India is surely smiling, when over 400 farmers have committed suicide at Vidarbha, Maharashtra.

But then, with the Lakme fashion week and Saint Sonia, who needs to think about farmers and their misery! Summer = farmers suicide. Monsoons = flood deaths. Year after year after year! Just like cricket matches. It's always happening at some place!

Indeed Protest!

I have just one question for all those who took to the streets in India to protest over the cartoon – Name the cartoonist and show me the country he came from on the world map?

Before our government decided to send a note placating the Imams and Mullahs in the world, I wonder, if they had taken a minute to see to the hundreds of civil problems that every single city and village in India faces – Who is going to fix the street lamps that miscreants decided to break during their last unrest? Or fix the glass windows that they decided to stone because it had the audacity to be in their chosen path, that day? Or jail the man who decided to shoot a ‘pretty young thing’ of a bartender because she decided to follow the bar and shut it down at the ‘government regulated time’(!!)?

O how about protesting against men peeing by the road sides? Or for the government to set up/maintain public restrooms! Of course, that way, we can give the ‘protestors’ more targets for destruction the next time something happens to raise their ire.

The list can go on to include the raped women, maimed children, affected families of the countless ‘wars’ that we can see on out streets everyday in any city/village, India.

But then, consider our poor policemen…how many places can they be at any given time? How can they protect innocent citizens, when they have their hands full in protecting our glitzy brothers and sisters of our cine industry? They have to protect Salman from the fans who want to prevent him going to jail for killing the endangered buck. Who cares about those four-legged animals anyway!! Protect Sonia & her family because they are our ‘first family’. And of course protect Manisha because some foolish journalist decided to publish that she had named her dog Mustaffa! So what if she did…how many dogs are named Mani after all. Neither the dog nor anybody else protests or takes the time to protest.

Maybe, just maybe that’s the reason why the UPA is being so suculur…so that they can take all these jobless muslims who have the time and energy to protest and create such unrests away from the streets and provide them with education or jobs so that, like the Hindu’s, they will also become self-absorbed and self-centered!

So my dear fellow country men and women; sit back and enjoy everyday with your friends and family. As long as the rioters don’t target your house, rape your daughter, slaughter your son or burn you, you are safe. Who cares if it’s a cartoon or nude Saraswathi, you are doing just fine.
