Dear Afghanistan - Go back to Hell

The message is clear. USA will leave Afghanistan. So will all NATO forces. It is nice to see that American intentions are laid bare. Once the job is done, they are content to go. The Afghans can kill themselves, thrash their women to death, stone people, indulge in terror attacks in the neighborhood, blow up babies, pour acid or shoot women and so on. All is fine as long as USA is not again attacked. Fine job, gentlemen. If they would have said we are coming to get Osama, I would have had some respect for them. But all those talks of 'bringing democracy' sounds just so hollow. USA does not care. It never did.

Afghanistan is a hell hole. There is no doubt about it. It was a shit hole and a hell hole before the Americans arrived. If you walk the streets of the country, you may feel transported to the 9th century or earlier. Brutality reigns supreme and whatever compassion is there is enshrined in tribal codes and does not usually come out of compassion. With the NATO presence many Afghans were disarmed and were prevented from killing each other. The presence of foreign media and foreign forces forced Afghans to behave properly. Especially with their women. Don't think they loved the foreigners. Afghans will never do that. One thing the Afghans despise the most is aliens coming to their land and stop them slaughter each other. But they knew the odds. So they stayed away. Of course a substantial portion of the population hates the Taliban. Especially the educated women. But their numbers are so minuscule that they need not be even counted.

Let's go back to the glory days of the Taliban. Days that are set to return next year with great aplomb. Pakistan is already on the verge of an orgasm thinking about it. More cheap suicide bombers for a new Kashmir intifada. The world would care less. Silly and unIslamic notions of women's rights, equal human rights, right to education etc will go down the drain. A pure Shariah based Islamic Caliphate will come into being where husbands will become shepherds and their wives - like goats.

With the foreign presence there is indeed a pretense that Afghans are trying at least to come to terms with the 21st century. Women were getting into police, ex-Taliban folks were coming out into open and turning 'moderate' and so on. But now, as Obama has promised a complete pull out, the devil is coming out into the open again. The officer among the women policemen was shot dead recently. The opium traders are getting back on track, so that the proceeds can fund more bloodshed. Hopefully their economy will flourish soon.

There is actually not much to write. What is going to happen is clear to everyone. It has already started. God's soldiers will pounce on the people who tried to improve their lives instead of blowing themselves up. The children will leave the school and sport the Kalashnikov. The women will go back into their sacks and herded into the bedroom. Bamiyan will be completely destroyed and mujahedin will be exported to fight wars of aggression all over the world. Except, may be USA and Europe. That should be a pre-condition. They are free to kill Indians, or other Asians, etc.

The government also appointed a former Taliban official to the country’s new human rights body, while criminal laws under consideration in parliament would prevent women and girls testifying against family members accused of abusing them. Read this link here to know what's coming.

NATO is smart. They like to leave some toys behind so that the disarmed Afghans have something to play with. This includes firearms and munitions. Some of these were left behind as bases were being evacuated. The media found it out and spoilt the game. They may need to postpone this fight to some later date. Another interesting thing is that these trucks, when they leave Afghanistan and move to Pakistan, they are often blown up for fun. So the priority for evacuating live ammunition is low.

Some still think that Afghanistan's future is uncertain. I will disagree. It is obvious and certain. The Taliban will make a comeback. It is simple. Everyone knows it. Karzai knows it. USA knows it. The Taliban knows it as well. It is just a matter of time. They can use this time to hone their skills. Except skills regarding suicide bombing. That is a one way trip. The Germans are much better in this regard. Unlike the Americans, they have decided to do the utmost to save the helpers of the Bundesarmee, if necessary even by allowing immigration.

The condition is changing fast. MPs are also suffering. Hell, they are getting kidnapped, along with children! But then not much can be expected from the Government of Afghanistan. Their writ runs only in Kabul, and Kandahar. The very Parliament was attacked by these holy warriors.

Let me also issue a stark warning here. Those who feel that abandoning a nation in its crisis is cool, because you can cut down your own loss of blood is selfish. You are going to lose the right to complain if Americans get killed in another terror attack.

Salesmen of God

Christian evangelicals are similar to parasites[1]. The similarities are simply astounding. Among all predatory religions, Evangelical Christianity has done, by far, the greatest harm to humankind[2]. 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).[3]
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…

Ali The Kargil Boy

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…

When birds come home

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…
