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.

Republic of India's sustained discrimination of Hindus

Republic of India has been independent for over 70 years now. Ever since 1947, and particularly since 1950 many Governments have come and gone. The Constitution of India has been amended. By over 370 times and counting. The name of the nation has also changed. From the simple 'Republic of India' it was changed to the 'Secular Sovereign Socialist Democratic Republic of India' for reasons best known to the then ruling elites. Few policies have remained unchanged or unchallenged regardless of the different Governments, political parties, emergencies and so on.

That is the systematic institutional and legal discrimination of Hindus.

Sounds surprising?

And yes, BJP fanboys - you are just as guilty if not more. Let me explain why.

There are plenty of laws, rules and regulations that this marvellous Republic of ours has given us. Learning about the laws that govern our lives require us to take a Law degree. Literally. The Constitution that we are bound to live by is somethin…

Fallen - Based on a true story (almost)

A group of young guys had gathered around a lifeless body on the road. A minivan had just hit a girl and sped off. The girl bounced on the road and rolled around once and came to a stop. The rest of the girls on the street scattered. A couple of guys came to check on the girl. A crowd gathered and collected what little valuables she had left with her.

A girl saw it all from her second floor window on Sheil road, Liverpool. Natalie was aware of the hazards of what she used to do. She knew the roads were dangerous, especially at night. But then, day or night - she was never truly safe. Her escape was only in heroin. She did not dare to build a world of her own by her own means. She tried before. It never worked out. So she had transferred the responsibility to what society calls ‘substance’. Heroin gave her a cushion, her sleep and let her keep her sanity. Or so she used to think.

Natalie was alone. Her addiction was not. It came with dependence, depression, homelessness and rejection. He…

A Good Day

I have a beautiful small house in the hills. It is about 3 km from Manali, in Himachal Pradesh. It is not much. Probably calling it a cottage is stretching it too far. I have got a couple of bedrooms, a small drawing room cum kitchen where we dine as well. There is storage and a small garage that is mostly empty. I have got another small room with just a single bed and a study built on the first floor. It is just about ten feet by ten feet but it has got a retractable ceiling and a wall made of glass with the rest of the roof being something of a balcony. This is the place where I like to spend most of my time. x

In the front, there is a garden with some flowers in the front and trees lining the boundary wall. My mother has planted a few vegetables in the back that we regularly use in the kitchen. We mostly require only rice and eggs from the market.

A typical day starts with me waking up and going for a morning stroll. I often spend my nights in the room on the roof. So the first thing…
