The "Familiar Train Incident" immmediately puts me in to a reflective mood. I feel a strange fear in me to be an Indian and what it will be like when i go back home! Heres what turned out from some mails and conversations.
Here is what CNN feels:
"In India 400 ppl die as Hindu fundamentalists run a mockery of
the system as an aftermath of Moslems burning a train which carried
activists going to build a temple at site where a moslem mosque was
And Here's what i feel:
The western media is not very good with India and the general public here
thinks that India is a place of elephants and poor; recently of Yoga and
We are a democratic nation. I always feel strong abt all this so lemme
unleash.People say "thats the biggest flaw....we shudnt have ever been
free..." i don't at all agree with all that, the firangis are and will
remain a bunch of chameleoned leechers. I felt surely "wish we were not
free" but that was my childish anger of current system. You see its we
who can make a difference, not a third person.
"What the hell how can anyone be so mercilessly burn the train". Thats
true, but its just a part of the picture not the whole thing. You see, no
country in the world will ever edure such a thing done with the majority
population. So we should not but the catch is how do we react? All the
firangis, press and high profile are sold out to the physicality, hopeless
Can't we do anything? I think ppl shud go out and catch
catch each sole and ask him wether he is an Indian, not Hindu or Muslim.
If he says yes ask him to join save the country. People say "Gandhi did
the biggest blunder in his life"? No way! My mom used to tell me he was a
great man n i used to fight with her abt that
but u see he had something else in mind he was too naive. Each moslem shud
be asked to pledge solidarity with the country. if not leave it. Ppl say
"all moslems should be thrown out of India". No way, i know moslems who r
Indains. I have had close friends that are as much indian as n e of us.
Ppl say "ya but a majority of them are not like us its bcoz of them we r
suffering". Thats the clitch, majority - get to them
but don't let the mionority go they will form the nation. For that matter
many hindus in india shud be outcasted.
I have come to one conclusion and there are reasons for that the
importance of gov should be reduced to zero. That will be possible only if
consumerism n capitalism comes in. Everything goes for money n
consumption. i HATE that, but u see that lesser evil,
eyerything sums up to the same thing. And i'm happy that its catching up
like n e thing in India, soo nuthing to regret things have to change its
Lets see whether we can make a difference or not. We always talk abt kool
things and our society kinda hates
political talk they think its dirty its just remanant of slavery i suppose
and partly becoz its really dirty.
Thats all for now!!!
I guess it was rather a huge mail. But u see am i frank as ever!!!
