Jinhe naaz hai Hind par.....

Jinhe naaz hai hind par wo kaha the,
jine naaz hai.........

Ah listening to this beautiful song by Rabbi...
India needs many more songs like this...One of the most beautiful lyrics I have ever heard..

Coming to think of the message it imparts.. to think of Satyendra Dubey , of Manjunath and many other heroes like them..of what they did , why they did and what they got in return....

Yesterday I made a friend of mine listen to this song....And all he said was.."The music seems good but who are these people??" As I tried to explain i thought that this is the new knows the full biography of the latest actress playing the tiniest role in the flop(est) movie but not our true heroes..while it is busy humming ilu-ilu(s) and shaking its bon-bon , songs like this go unnoticed..
They dont even know who dies for them..simply unaware of truth...
Then they say "the f***ing country is going to the dogs" ....No my dear friend the country is not going to dogs, its the countrymen who are transforming into and me included..

They say we need more Gandhis and Bhagats...Brudda even they too would be helpless against your deaf and dumb and blind attitude..

Nothing can be done , nothing can be achieved unless we rise, unless we open our eyes and unless we hear to the plight of people..
Itno ne puchha ki mera ab saval hai ki
Jinhe naaz hai, hind par vo kahan the
Jinhe naaz hai, vo kahan hain

While we are busy shaking our bon-bons (wagging our tails I 'd say) and continue chanting "the f****..." Indian will no longer remain a place to live in..So open up your eyes people and look around...Otherwise Cheeno zamin humsey, Bhejo humain pataal... yeah pataal would be a place fit for us....

Religion..My Views

A famous saying goes..
"Religion is an opium for people"

I have heard this quote many times. Many of my friends are of this view and propagate to ban religion.They say religion is responsible for so many atrocities being committed- The crusades, Jihads, riots , suicide bombings etc..

But sadly enough they seem to miss some of the most basic points while saying this.

What i believe is that blaming religion for these crimes is like blaming melanin for racism.
It is not religion's fault that people tend to satiate their own complexes, frustrations in life and vile desires using it as a shield. No religion in the world would justify rapes and massacres...

The problem lies not with religion but with people's mind.
Religion is something that brings about strong emotions in the people, and man as weak a creature as he is against his emotions loses his power to reason and follows the "devil's path".

But that is the case with many things; love for example creates strong emotions. Now some people develop these emotions into terrible jealousy and commit all sorts of heinous crimes..
Does that mean we should ban love too?

Or let us take another example -Sex; it causes one of the most terrible disease ever encountered by humans. But again they are acquired by man's own fault and not by the fault of intercourse.
Ban it and human race ends..

Anything that causes emotions can be an enemy of humans if mis-handled. We cant just go on banning every thing..

They say look at crusades , look at jihad -such terrible acts of terrorism..
I say look at the attrocities by the Chinese on Buddhist monks.What should I call it? -"Atheist Terrorism"???

How can a prince who lived fourteen long years in the forest likea beggar just to keep his father's promise support rapes??
How can a man who underwent the most terrifying torture of being hung on the cross to save humanity from hell preach massacres ??

Have you ever stood in the temple and looked at the "linga" ? Can't you see the whole universe whirling and un-whirling in the silent black stone?? Don't you feel immense peace while looking at it??
Or what do you feel when you see that semi-naked bearded man hanging painfully on the cross?? Aren't you reminded of your sins??

Do these objects of worship inspire you to be violent and kill others?
No sire they do not.
The man who uses them as an excuse to kill can never be a religious person, he has never understood religion. Then why blame religion for the crimes of a non-religious person??

A match can light a hundred lamps whereas it can also start a conflagration..
All depends on the hand wielding it....

The role of Institutes

There is a famous quote that you can read on every second T-Shirt. It says:
" I was born intelligent but Education spoiled me"

I find this banal completely true in my case. I got a good all India rank in my pre-eng examsand thus landed in a college which I hoped would enhance my knowledge and workability.
But what i actually found that I was just another customer paying money and buying my degree.
I guess this is the condition of 95% of the institutes in India or even more.
They are just money making "industries" which excel in attracting youths with their imposing piles and lucrative job offers once you successfully "purchase" your full degree.
Is this education all about?? I mean there is some difference between being educated and being literate. Is the youth educated? Getting an engineering or MBA or MBBS degree makes one a good citizen ?
What is the role of an institute in shaping up the life and career of an aspirant?
Just to turn him into a money making machine? Is that it? Getting him a five or six figure salary at the end? And what about the values that one expects out of a learned professional ? Who will teach them?
What about the moral and ethical values that should be and "must be" imbibed in every individual? Are these institutes making "responsible humans" or simply manufacturing "machine coded robots"?
Half hearted lectures by the proffs attended by even more half heartedly by the students this is all our education comprises of. I believe that there should be proper awareness programs inside colleges training the students in various aspects of their lives and surrounding. There should be economics, civics, environmental and moral lessons given compulsorily in each institute be it technical or medical or arts. And not only theoretical explainations but also practical tours familiarising the students with their own country. The students should be trained that what should be the moral duty of every individual in shaping up the future of his nation and society. Just make him aware of his surroundings.
We do not need more Gandhis or Boses, what we require is the feeling inside every individual that it is his obligation to not be a selfish bloke but consider the wellbeing of his nation, society and the humankind. And for bringing this feel inside the young generation the role of the institutes holds the most importance.institues is most importance
