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.
Burhan Wani – The man and his mission
The death of a young ‘hero’?
On the 8th of July, Burhan Muzaffar Wani died in
the Valley of Kashmir. Thousands poured out on the streets to commemorate his
services to the movement that he had come to symbolize of late. The relative
calm of the region was shattered with curfews, killings and allegations of
human rights abuses. His father was proud for the services his son had offered
in the name of their faith, convinced that he would go to Heaven. Amidst all
this, the romantic ideals of a young boy, just off his teens began to shake up
the youth of the entire country, both in and beyond India.
There is a lot of unrest in the Kashmir Valley recently,

glorification, his elevation to the status of a martyr in the service of Islam
does not come as a surprise to me.
There is a section of the media and a sig…
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
matter how others treat you. You don’t think you are sick or something’s wrong
with you. If you stand up, nobody can insult you… But if you feel weak and
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
acknowledge it and accept it, and kno…
Introduction It is the land of enlightenment, the land of higher education, of spirituality. It is the land of immense wealth, great architecture, the birthplace of several faiths, the land where research on astronomy, literature, math, general sciences and philosophy flourished. The land is not Greece. It is not ancient Rome, Egypt, Sumer, Mesopotamia, or even the Central Americas. The land rests today between two states in the Indian Union - between Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal; the Indian state of Bihar. This is a referenced article. For list of references, please check this link. Bihar has since earned a terrible reputation. No amount of whitewashing will remove that stain. It is now known as the dacoits’ paradise, the land of hooligans, bad roads, caste and religious strife, rampant crimes against women and almost all the social evils that one can probably think of. However, Bihar was nothing like this. Or at least it was not supposed to be like this. I will give a very brief introd…
