A few days ago I was having lunch at the restaurant. The food was so delicious I started enjoying it. A few minutes later a Muslim came to the restaurant and sat in the table next to me, I saw him and kept munching, then there was a new man who was looking for a table tried to sit next to me .. since the space was small he couldn’t get in and he sat right opposite to the Muslim man .. sharing the same table .. the situation got intense as the new man who appeared to be an upper caste hindu was finding it uncomfortable to sit opposite to a Muslim in a vegetarian restaurant. It was evident he was looking for places to sit .. he found and moved to another table within a few minutes came another Muslim who opted to sit next to the Muslim and I figured out he was comfortable and relaxed and that made me think since all of them were strangers what made one person uncomfortable and tensed when it made another person comfortable and relaxed . The only thing I could think of is religion. I understood that years of conditioning on all of them makes them hate and be uncomfortable even without knowing. Religion makes one hate even those who you don’t really know and the need of the hour is nothing but athiesm
It has become a fashion these days to support farmers and agriculture, when people fight for the farmers they think they are fighting for the labours who die every day of starvation. they don’t understand ground reality the truth is no matter how much prosperous agriculture field is the main beneficiary is not the one who toils but the one who owns big lands. the land still belongs to the rich and the workers who toil hard are underpaid no matter what and are discriminated. so when you fight or protest for a farmers you’re not protesting for farmers who starve but those filthy rich big shots who destroy the livelihood of farmers. most of those who protest are living or working in places built destroying agricultural lands.
The goal of the protests should be to improve the livelihood of the farmers by fixing minimum wages and prices of the products not just fighting against every damn plan the government brings without having a basic understanding.

What is Hinduism ?
When a lot of religious people can claim or give a lot of explanations the truth is
Hinduism was a religion invented by the British when they first grouped people of similar idol worship when they made the first census. The first reference to the word Hindu is found in the Persian text .. some say Hindu derived from indos the Greek way of calling the people of river Sindh , however we find no reference to the word Hindu in any vedic text .
The word was Santana dharma. Which divides people based on Varna and caste.
Casteism is the very essence of Hinduism. As long as Hinduism is there, casteism would co exist. Casteism is oppression of lower castes by the upper caste, forbidding education, lower caste women weren’t allowed to cover their breasts, men weren’t allowed to enter temples never allowed to touch water bodies or eat in plates. They first born girl of the low castes were forcibly made devadasis and were sexually exploited.
When spreading Hinduism in the western world most upper caste hindus conveniently ignore casteism and spread Hinduism claiming Hinduism is a way of living. Any way of living that tells you to oppress others isn’t a good way.
Truly an outsider can’t become a Hindu. Hinduism is a pyramid of castes where one can never go up or down. One is born and dies in the same level .
When a white skinned foreigner converts into Hinduism which caste would he belong ?
He doesn’t belong to any so he’s not really a Hindu.
She was beauty of the highest form
Can beauty be a curse?
Yes, it was for her .
Everyone adored her for her beauty over her talents.
She wanted to become a lawyer but fate player otherwise she became an artist
As an artist she was abused and ill-treated. She was dragged into politics against her will.
She wanted to get married and lead a peaceful life but the cruel world of men started playing with her life. Some just wanted her only for themselves, seperated her from the one she loved.
When she began to represent her people they abused her inside one of the most prestigious place of the state, she ran away from her home.
The lust of men followed her wherever she went, was brought back to politics.
She fell right into the trap of a wicked woman, who wanted to take her place.
There are a lot of people who called/ call her a strong and iron lady but to me, she is/ was just a toy in the hands of fate and men.
That’s the term I read whenever I login in to social media
We are the only country in the world who has suppressed its own kind in the name casteism. After all the technological advances people still die in the gutter. We are the only ones who attack Dalits for drinking water in the upper caste well …we are the only one who kill humans over the meat they eat, when we have people who have nothing to eat. Cows are given more importance than humans and women do really feel scared to walk down the roads at night.
Incase you are proud of your culture remember we are the ones who killed women burning them alive in the name of sati.. female infanticide is still practiced and we had a system called devadasi ( slaves of gods and whores of men ).. we forbid education based on caste. Women were not allowed to cover their upper body. Men weren’t allowed inside temples .
We are 168 th in literacy, 131 in human development index, 122 in living a happy and peaceful life.
We top the list in a few things .. population, number of people who use technology and intolerance.
Just because you’re born in a country and you tell me you feel proud of all these. I don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about

What’s good? .. what’s bad?
What makes a woman good ? What makes a woman bad?
We live in this world as second handed people where almost all our judgements are clouded based on what we have been taught when we are raised. There is no originality in us. Our thoughts and judgements have always been influenced by external factors and our past experiences. Our mind is always conditioned and we aren’t even trying to break our conditioned mind.
Yet, we judge others and term them good and bad. Even before we understand people we judge them. If a man drinks alcohol, he’s bad. If a woman smokes she’s bad. If she tries to break out her cages she’s bad. If a man has multiple affairs he’s a player, if a woman does that she’s a slut and above all we judge people based on their sexual orientation and the food they eat, some of us even try to brand them as sinners and punish them for it.
Why does it really matter what people do in their personal life? Who are we to judge them or brand them. Understand that no one is born to impress the other or live by the rules of others
Next time before you judge someone on what they do with their life there’s something called minding your own business .. try that .
Ban beef, Ban alcohol, Ban drugs .
Too much of banning these days .. I wish someone could ban the word ban.
There are people who are against beef ban who claim it’s the violation of their fundamental rights given to them but the same people want alcohol banned that time they say it’s the will of the society, truly sounds more like a hypocrisy to me.
I’m against the ban of anything. Why should we as a society or the government poke it’s nose in the choices of individuals.
Don’t ban anything just educate people about the ill effects and create awareness, like what we already have for cigarettes.
Banning something will always tempt people to do what’s banned on the other hand educating and creating awareness will yield the expected result
It was an improperly planned trip .. booked the wrong train, got down at the wrong station at the wrong time, the goal was to be at the point where the bay of Bengal, Arabian Sea and the Indian ocean meet by sunrise, but it appeared impossible. It was the ungodly hour of the night when even the stray dogs would sleep, not a soul at sight .. I dared to walk slowly looking for people to ask for direction. Google maps failed me as the internet connectivity was zero. The point of the cellphone tower symbol showed nothing ..it was out of coverage area I realized, yet I kept walking down the road, finally found a tea shop that was open, words could never define how relieved I felt knowing that I could ask someone the way and wouldn’t miss the sunrise. He showed me the way and the place where I could get the bus, yet informed me I have to wait till 5.30 in the morning for the first bus. I decided not to waste my time over there and started walking hoping I would find some way to reach my destination on time. It was thrilling as the way resembled an abandoned village where there was no light except the flashlight of the cellphone and the lights of vehicles that crossed me .. dogs started howling as if they were wolves waiting for their prey. I had no choice but got to find a way, it was at that moment when my hope of watching the sunrise faded a vehicle stoped by.. I stuck a deal with him and got into it. As they say the night is cold and filled with terrors, I started wondering would such a travel be this easy for me if I were a woman. Never for a second I was scared of being raped or talking to strangers. Never for a moment I was scared to let anyone know I’m alone. The worst thing that could have happened is someone would have robbed me of my cellphone but thinking from a woman’s perspective, I understand how tough would it have been for them .. the truth is we as humans have failed to feel them secure. In other species it’s not always the same species that preys on its own. We humans have become worse than animals or always have been. Men have become sexual predators and instead of appreciating the gentleness of Women we take advantage of that. Few can say not all men rape, but the truth is when you stand silent and given the feel that women should be protected it’s a total failure of men as a gender. Not just in the middle of the night men have made women feel insecure everywhere even inside the house. It’s natural to feel attracted to the opposite sex but how we express it is what that defines us. It’s ok to openly express your attraction but learning to accept No with a grace is something most men lack, our ego gets hurt and we become monsters craving revenge on them. The only solution to this is learning to accept the fact that they are also humans with feelings and not just an object of sex. This can be achieved only when parents raise their children teaching such values and ingrain them in the minds of kids .
