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.
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
political), caste groups, the poor and the si…
I met Ali in the Leh airport,he drove us in our hotel. The very next morning we went for sightseeing. He used to drive very fast. I repeatedly told him to drive slow, he followed for a short time; again continued in his own speed.
On the way to Nubra valley the road was very stiff and the altitude was very high. As I was sick before our tour it was difficult for me to bear that fast ride.After coming back I complained our tour operator for his driving and asked for another driver.
Our tour operator assured me that he would tell him to drive comfortably.The next day Ali came drove the car and I enjoyed my entire remaining trip.
Sometimes he used to push the accelerator and I just told "Ali.....ahista"...he became consous. We used to chat during this long drive. I asked him "How old are you Ali?he replied "22years mam."He told me "At the age of 16 I started driving without lisence,I used to drive big vehicles ,now I drive tourist cars during the seas…
It is mid March in Mumbai. It is supposed to be hot and humid. As it usually is all the year round with monsoon and December exceptions. But it's cloudy today. To be fair, yesterday was also cloudy but today is dark. As dark as it usually is just before a downpour. It may rain and I don't have an umbrella with me. It's not that a change of weather is bad. I like rains. But the suddenness is rather strange. I am not the only one confused with the weather change. The birds seem to be totally messed up by the onset of darkness. It was about 9 AM in the morning. The birds had just perched on the trees for their daily routine. The cloud came. They possibly understood that to be the beginning of the evening and end of day. Next thing I know, I see hundreds (yes, literally hundreds) of birds rushing back to their nests. This is not a unique scene. I have seen this umpteen number of times in the monsoons. This is the first time I have noticed it in March (as far as I can remember) an…
