I am not a very soft person. When it comes to Islamists and Pakistan, I turn harder(with good reason). But this girl just stands out of all of it. I will write little in this post. Words won't do enough justice to a child like her. We know what happened to her. So I won't go elaborate and repeat what the entire world knows. I just wish to convey a message - I love you. Simple. Go conquer the world. Best Wishes.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (henceforth named as
Mr. Shankar) is not new to controversy. Not even with topics like homosexuality. What the event wasAt an event in the Jawaharlal Nehru
Shankar gave a talk on the occasion of the Nehru Memorial lecture on 13th
November, 2017. One among the audience lamented that he was ill-treated since
he was known to be a homosexual. Then Mr. Shankar stated that he needed to
accept himself as he was and love knew no boundaries. Let’s see and hear what he said…Let’s quote Mr. Shankar verbatim as
reported by some
of the newspapers. ‘You treat yourself better, doesn’t

meek, and if you feel bad about yourself, nobody can make you feel better.’ Indian Express reported this in addition as
well. Let me quote it directly here as well. ‘This is your tendency now. Just

Christian evangelicals are similar to parasites. The
similarities are simply astounding. Among all predatory religions, Evangelical
Christianity has done, by far, the greatest harm to humankind. Like
leeches, the Evangelical sucks the lifeblood of an unchristian society till it
descends either into chaos and incessant civil conflict or the relegation of
the culture to the pages of history(Bowden, 1985). Even in the 21st
century this unashamed activity continues(Bhosle, 2003). Evangelicals usually have a similar methodology when it comes to
proselytization. Like parasites, the target is usually one belonging to the
most vulnerable section of society. This does not necessarily mean that they
try harvesting only the most down trodden of the society(Kelly, 2001). And most certainly,
the objective is never the upliftment of the persons involved. The target groups
may, for example, belong to ethnic minorities, refugees (both economic and

Once again in Mirik after 17 years, I felt very nostalgic because when we used to visit this place, my sons were little kids.

Dad striking a pose (caption by Sarthak) Since this hill station is not at very high altitude one can enjoy a very comfortable stay here and the roads are very inviting.The lake is the main attraction of this place, the Buddha monastery,view point are very nice. I was lucky that the weather was so clear that Mt. Kanchenjunga was clearly seen all the time. Just for a restful walking around the lake, sitting on the grass and gazing at the bushes of pine and fur trees and the peaks of the Himalayas, this is my most preferred destination.
