Lets blame the Hindus

Note - By the blanket term - 'Hindu' I mean all Indian religions.

Blaming Hindus for everything is easy. 'Secular' people and their minions keep trumpeting the charges over and over again with impunity. Because they very well know that Hindus won't retaliate by blowing up their houses, or kidnapping their children. They won't even cut the hand of the offenders or even beat them up in broad daylight. The girls won't be raped, the property won't be stolen. To cut the long story short, all the Hindus will do is cry foul and forget a week later. That is what has been happening for centuries anyway.

A few notable incidents happened. Pakistan is a great source of knowledge in this regard. The search for an Indian Jew ended in 712 AD when bin Kasim conquered Sindh. Since then Hindus, especially the meeker ones were found to be convenient scapegoats. After defeating Dahir somehow the blame was put on (no prize for guessing) Dahir and blamed his Brahmanistic rule, his piracy etc. Bottomline - it's the Hindus' fault.

Let's come to the present day. In East Pakistan, the Operation Searchlight was doing a lot of damage. Yes, I am underestimating the events here. But then we know what happened. After months of heavy fighting and final Indian intervention, Bangladesh attained independence and Pakistan was dismembered. The historians of the defeated nation sat down to justify the defeat. Out came the Hindu conspiracies.
Q. Who were the teachers in schools and colleges?
A. The Hindus.(Actually only a thirty percent were Hindu).

Q. Who brainwashed the Muslims of Bangladesh into thinking their Pakistani brethren are the enemy?
A. The Hindus.

Q. Who were the West Pakistanis?
A. The people of West Pakistan.

Q. Were they Arabs?
A. No, a vast majority of them are native to the place of present day West Punjab, Sindh and Balochistan. An overwhelming majority of that population had been converted some way or another from Hinduism to Islam.

Q. So what were they before conversion?
A. Hindu.

Q. So whose fault?
A. Hindus. Of course.

Q. The Hindus were driven out of Kashmir in the 90s. Who was responsible?
A. The Hindus were driven out by the Governor to give bad name to the Muslims. So yes, the Hindu Governor was responsible. Let's blame the Hindus.

Actually this saga continues - like it had continued for centuries. It remains to be seen that how long these resilient people survive this relentless onslaught.

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.
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 I…

My Little Wife

Amar choto bou chole bake bake... If you are looking for some meaning in the words written above - please stop. It is of no use.

This is a short dedicated to my wife whom I did not get to marry.

Being typically Bengali, she is puchu to me.

If you are reading this, please keep in my mind that I am not one bit drunk. And I don't particularly feel like writing either. This you see here is not prose. Just an open faucet. Or a gaping wound sp... okay. Scratch that. Open faucet it is.

She has got a small round face. Her eyes are symmetrical. A bit like almonds. They look lively and restless when open and calm or serene when closed. The nose is neither pointed not large. It sits right in the middle of the face with even elevations on both sides. It is not too small to notice nor is it too large to get in the way. Her lips are small, but not thin. There is an amount of volume to them that you would not usually expect.

Her face looks normal something from a distance. It looks small from c…

The suffocating roadblocks and dead end jobs

Life throws new challenges everytime you decide to do something new.

When you plan to try anything new, you area aware of the challenges that you are likely to face. But Life usually will have other plans. When you expect a right turn, Life will show you a left. When you least expect x to turn up at your door, you find y.

And then there is a dead end job.

This is one job that I at times enjoy. Because I get to work directly in the technologies that I like to work with. At the same time, I feel terrible about the senior management and my future prospects here. What is the worst is that I don't see any way out of this either.

It is not that I have not forwarded my resume over to the other firms. I have. But I have not received any meaningful reply yet. Any response that I have so far been able to elicit are of no interest to me whatsoever.

I feel I have to chalk out a path for myself again. Problem is, the task becomes more and more difficult with age. I can take less risk than I c…
