India-The Blind Nation



Each one prays to God according to his own light.
-Mahatma Gandhi

India, formerly known to the world as Bharat was once the land of rich culture and peace but now the second half has lost somewhere in the midst of personal benefits and high corruption. The land of varied diversity and culture has lost the flavor of unity and is now tearing apart from all the sides. The more we are developing, the more we are increasing the tension on the strings of beliefs which have been binding us from several centuries. The graph of “development” is strictly created with respect to the monetary matrices and nobody cares about the social factors that are hindering the progress several times faster than the rate of our so called economic development.  The leaders in this backward progress are namely self declared uneducated, greedy Gods aka “BABA” and our very own beloved publicly chosen politicians.  If we focus on these two sets of people we will understand that the one part is where we blindly believe to what they say and the next set is of the people whom we blindly vote.

The concept of God-man has now become a trend in the Indian culture. All you need to do is either predict some area where 1000 tons of gold is buried (Shobhan Sarkar) or just say declare yourself to be the sole bridge between eternity and life. (This list is long). We Indians are known to be desperate creatures in the west but only an Indian would know that a real Indian is most desperate to be follower of some random tea-selling person who claims himself to be God. We are not God loving people, we are God fearing people. But what is so special about these fake personalities? The truth is they have got just one main quality which is to hypnotize and charm people with their speech. This is more than enough to win the heart of a poor Indian who dreams of a better life every day and night. These babas just show us the dream we have in our sleep everyday and we get fascinated by them.  They not only play with the emotions and feelings of each and every man, woman and child but they also misuse their trust to further deteriorate the pillars of religious harmony. Moreover these babas have special affection for women. They sexually assault them in the name of “bhakti”. In fact, this can be declared as another trend going among almost all the babas.   They are a threat to civilized India. But who created this threat? Did it grow on its own? The answer to this is NO. It’s us, the blind citizens of this country who have allowed such morons to grow and expand under our spiritual gains and now we ourselves have become the victim of it.  We are so blind that most of us still cannot see the reality and continue to believe in such people. We come out in thousands to protect these people if someone tries to harm them. Our blind faith in them is weakening our entire nation and that day is no far when these people will be our new rulers.

VIRGINITIPHOBIA-The Death of Democracy

sad guy sketchToday, after a violent battle with pain and trauma the Delhi gang rape victim finally lost her battle with life at the Singapore Hospital. It’s not just the death of a brutally tortured innocent girl but the death of democracy in India.  India, where its politicians suggest girls not to expose themselves and excite men to rape them rather than facing the challenge to tighten the security for its people. India, where the price of life and emotions is no more than a pile of garbage lying on the road. India, where criminals run like leopard and law procedures follow behind with the speed less than that of a tortoise. I am saddened and ashamed to be a man today. People around me always say I am emotionally very weak and somehow I always try to prove them wrong but today I am helpless. I am just so helpless…!!! I couldn’t do a thing for her while she was struggling for her life. I failed to give her justice while she was alive.

My society is filled with monsters. By monsters I really mean the cruelest and the most insane creatures no mind can ever imagine. There is race among these monsters to commit the most barbarous crimes.  I seriously wish we (humans) were asexual creatures. We don’t deserve to be a part of nature.  Even a dumb animal never ever does such acts. If human race is garden then men are the gardeners and women are its blushing flowers but some of those gardeners pluck them and crush them badly. We (men) have lost it completely. I get restless when I imagine about the pain the girl must have felt. I am so sensitive that even if someone puts his heavy hand on me I can’t stand his load but when I think about the girl who carried the infinite load of mental trauma and the physical pain in her tiny little heart for last 13 days of her life, I really feel I don’t deserve to live. Today I have realized one thing. God doesn’t exist! No he does not! If he exists then he is unsentimental. He created humans with emotions but forget to save some for himself.

How can this ever get changed! India needs to fight another battle of independence but today we don’t have people like BHAGAT SINGH and MAHATMA GANDHI who can devote themselves of the nation. I am afraid for my country and its people. The current situation is such that not a single female in India is sure of coming home safely at any time of day. The irony is that they are not safe within their own house too! They are getting raped anywhere, anyplace, anytime and in any manner. This is the real truth of India. India, which was once called as the land of Gods and Goddesses, is now a land of rapists and we preach lust.  Wherever we go, we just show lust. Be it for foreigners or for money and power. My feelings, my writing won’t help now. The fact is we have lost an innocent life and no one can get it back but I will work hard to make this society a better place to live. I don’t know when will I achieve it but yes, I will try my level best because I can’t live with it.

That’s me in the picture and I request everyone to shed at least one tear and pray for the innocent who is now lying in peace.
