Hinduism explained

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.

It’s all in our mind 

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 .

Expanded version of the ungodly hour

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 .

An unearthly hour

This is the post excerpt.

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 seemed impossible now.  It was an unholy time of the night when even the stray dogs would sleep, not a soul in 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 that road, finally, found a tea shop open, words can never express how relieved I felt knowing that I could ask someone the way and wouldn’t miss my sunrise. He did show me the place where I could get the bus, yet informed me I have to wait till 5.30am for the first bus. I decided not to waste my time over there and started walking hoping I would find some othet way to reach my destination in 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 to find a way, it was at that moment, when my hope of watching the sunrise faded, a vehicle stopped by.. I struck 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 was 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 it would have been for her .. the truth is we as humans have failed to feel them secure. Among 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. Many of our men have become sexual predators, we prey on them in their hour of need. Few can say not all men rape, but the truth is when you stand​ silent and give the feel that women should be protected it’s a total failure of men.
