The Martyr’s soul will indeed be Proud

Miss Gurmehar Kaur, a 20-year-old student of Delhi University, is being trolled and threatened for opposing one of the acts of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). She basically hails from Jalandhar, India and was a part of the campaign run against ABVP on social media platform. Herewith, please be noted that it is being alleged that the members of ABVP were involved in the violence that took place on dated 22nd February 2017 in the campus of Ramjas College, New Delhi. Now it’s for the authorities and the investigation agencies to investigate and reveal the names of all those who were involved in that violent act.

However, it seems that as a “customary act” once again the attention has been deliberately shifted from the main issue to the opposition of that very issue. So, before reaching to any conclusion, it will be prudent for us to know that what this girl was actually opposing. Was her stand in favour of any Anti-Nation activity? Was she opposing any kind of legal activity? Above all what exactly she wanted to convey? And to find the answer to all such questions, we will have to go through the post of Gurmehar Kaur. If anyone with sane mind looks at her post, they could easily figure it out that she was simply opposing any kind of violence in the college. Further, to voice her stand against violence this brave girl openly dared ABVP that she is not afraid of them.

Now, I seriously fail to understand that what is the mistake of this girl in raising her voice against a serious issue? In a country whose “Father of the Nation” was himself against any kind of violence is it wrong on the part of a Martyr’s daughter to raise her voice against violence? Nowadays, how easy it is to pronounce anything as an Anti-Nation activity. If someone raises their voice against any kind of injustice, they are held as Anti-Nation. What kind of democracy is this where one who speaks against violence has to leave the city and those who were actually involved in that violence are still roaming freely in that very city?

Shame on us that in the heat of opposing someone we can fall to such a low-level, that we don’t even hesitate in threatening people from raping them. What kind of society is this where the educated youths are indulging in violence and still they get support in the name of Patriotism? However valid our point may be but who on earth gave us the right to take law in our hands? A democratic nation should have a zero tolerance policy against any kind of violence. Only then we can make our country a safe place to live in.

Surprisingly, the tech savvy Central Government always keeps mum whenever such incidences take place, especially in which people related to their political party are involved. While, at all the other time, the Central Government’s ministers including our Pradhan Sevak are super active on social media platforms. Why can’t the Central Government take a strong stand against any kind of violence and come out openly to oppose all those who were involved in such kind of acts? I hope they know it that they are a People’s Government, not a Party Specific Government.

A Central Minister on this incidence commented that “The Martyr’s soul must be crying”. Mr. Minister, it’s not the martyr’s soul, rather we should be the one who should be crying on such a treatment with a martyr’s family in our country. It is the same nation to which Late Captain Mandeep Singh gave preference over his family or any other thing. It is the same nation for which he gave away his life in the 1999 Kargil war. It is the same nation for which the martyr’s father too served in the armed force. And for all this sacrifice and love towards the nation what he gets in return?

His daughter is not safe in the same country, she is being threatened with rape and murder, she is getting trolled for voicing against violence and above all she has to leave the city for security reasons. Is this the way a martyr’s family should be treated within his own country? Forget about showing respect towards the martyrs, these people can’t even respect the dignity of a female. However, it is commendable that in spite of all the threats the brave girl stands against the sick minded people. Seeing her daughter’s brave stand, the martyr’s soul will indeed be Proud.

I would like to end this blog with the hope that may we always choose a peaceful and a decent way of protesting against anything that we want to oppose. Let there be freedom of speech and expression in a real sense. For the sake of this nation, I urge everyone not to link each and everything with an anti-nation act. I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God Bless you all!

Surgical Strike 29-09-2016 – The much awaited surgery

At the start of this blog, I would like to quote the following paragraph extracted from my other Blog “My Family and My Neighbour” – “Incidences like yesterday’s terrorist attack always shook our entire family and left us thinking that whether being a peace loving family is taken for granted? Whether they consider us as a weak nation? Was it possible to stop such a brutal incidence, if in the past we would have proved to others that taking our things back is our birthright? Could the situation worsen to this extent, if we would have made it loud and clear, that it’s not that we want to fight, but, at the same time, it’s not that we cannot fight? The most important question that needs to be answered by all of us is that how long will it take for us to change and how long will we wait for others to change”.

From the time India got Independence, the Indo-Pak border is a highly sensitive area. The majority of the terrorists enter from this side of the country, obviously to create disturbances in our Motherland India. The 4 hours, successful surgical strike, which started at 12.30 A.M., on dated 29th September 2016, was, in fact, a much-awaited surgery, needed for decades, in and around, the Indian border that is suffering from the chronic disease of terrorism. The Para Commandos of Indian armed forces outperformed on all the levels in this secret mission. This surgical strike is a tight slap on the faces of all those who are involved in, as well as, support terrorism to breed in, on their soil.

This surgical strike was conducted by crossing the Line Of Control (LOC) and striking in the area encroached by Pakistan, which is unfortunately known as “Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK)”. A similar kind of operation was also successfully conducted, in the recent past, in Myanmar, by the Indian armed forces. However, the impact of the 29th September 2016 surgical strike is much larger in essence, as it is not restricted to that specific area alone. Rather, it stretches beyond the area of operation, by giving a strong message to the entire world that “India should not be mistaken, to be taken, as a soft state, anymore”. This surgical strike is also a message to the Terrorist Nations, as well as, the Terrorist groups that things have crossed way above our tolerance level, better think twice before showing eyes to India, next time.

Without any second thought, this decision taken by the present Indian government needs to be highly appreciated and backed up with full support from each and every patriotic citizen of Motherland India. The present Indian government has been successful in trapping Pakistan on all fronts whether diplomatic, strategic or military. Pakistan’s leadership is trapped in their own net. Their position is similar to the person who is stuck in a situation where s/he can neither swallow, nor throw out, the crap which they themselves cooked.

Rather than viewing this surgical strike as merely a revenge of the Uri attack, it should be looked upon as a favour done by India, on one of its “Most Favoured Nation”, by surgically removing some of the parasites of terrorism that were breeding in that area, which Pakistan has shamelessly encroached, but unable to take due care of. Pakistan should actually feel indebted towards the Indian armed forces, as well as, India as a whole. My suggestion to the Pakistan armed forces is that they should first thank the Indian army on this generous act of cleaning up their soil and eradicating a few of the terrorists from the area which is actually in Pakistan’s control, as of now. Secondly, the Pakistan armed forces should request the Indian government, in writing, to help them eradicate each and every single terrorist, from the mines of terrorists located in their country.

It’s a known fact that the Pakistan’s armed forces have failed drastically in curbing the terrorism from their own land, on the contrary, they are the major contributors behind flourishing the crop of terrorism on their soil. And, at the same time, it’s not a hidden fact as well, that Pakistan’s political leadership is helpless in front of their armed forces and terrorist organisations. Hence, it’s not surprising that the Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif first accepted and later on denied the surgical strike conducted by Indian armed forces. So, as per my views, seeking help from the Indian Politicians and Indian armed forces, for eradicating terrorism from their land, by stretching the surgical strike to the whole of Pakistan, is the only ray of hope left for them if they actually care for their country. I would also like to suggest a name for this noble cause as “Swachh Pakistan Mission”.

We never had any doubts that the Indian armed forces are one of the best-armed forces in the entire world. Once again, they proved it, that they are super in all respect, irrespective of the facilities they have, in comparison to the facilities owned by the armed forces of the developed nations. This brave act of Indian armed forces, well supported by the political and NSA leadership is something on which every peace loving person should feel proud of, irrespective of the nation they belong too. Kudos to each and every single soldier of the Indian armed forces for the terrific operation they have conducted, more importantly without any single casualty happening on our side (that’s what surgical strike actually means). Hats off!

Heartfelt thanks to the Pradhan Sevak, Defence Minister, NSA leader, Armed Forces and each and every single person involved in this operation. A salute to all of you for the commendable job you have done.

Jai Hind!

Kshamavani (Forgiveness) Day – A day to seek forgiveness and forgive

In our day to day life, each one of us may get hurt, as well as, knowingly or unknowingly, may hurt others by any of our acts. However, out of our ego, we don’t tend to forgive others, forget about seeking forgiveness from others. No doubt it takes a lot of courage to seek forgiveness or for that matter to forgive others. As such, it is rightly said that “Kshama Virasya Bhushanam”, which means “Forgiveness adorns the Brave”.

On the occasion of Samvatsari (the last day of Paryushana – a Jain festival) and Kshamavani (Forgiveness) Day, there is a custom in the Jain religion, wherein with folded hands, the Jain followers seek forgiveness from every single soul who felt bad or got hurt, knowingly or unknowingly, due to any of their actions/deeds/words, etcetera. They seek forgiveness by saying Micchami Dukkadam to all the living beings. Micchami Dukkadam is a Prakrit phrase, wherein Micchami means to be fruitless (forgiven) and Dukkadam (Dushkrut) means bad deeds.  Micchami Dukkadam means ‘to be forgiven’ or ‘may all the evil that has been done be forgiven’.

What could be more beautiful than to make forgiveness a part of our life? Just imagine if there are no grudges in anyone’s heart then how beautiful this world will be, to live in. Behind almost all the evils happening around us, there is somewhere an element of a lack of forgiveness in the heart of those involved in such acts. We, the living beings, spent our entire life carrying a lot of grudges against others. But do we even realize that all these grudges are somewhere or the other responsible for all the unhappiness that surrounds us? Give it a thought, that how much lighter we will feel if we get away with all those grudges that occupy the majority of our memory space. To achieve such a state all that is required is just an “attitude of forgiveness”. Isn’t it worth giving a try at least?

I would like to quote here a recent example which depicts what greatness is all about and, at the same time, how those who claim to be the “contractors of religion”, provoke others “in the name of religion” to get involved in things that are specifically barred by the religion. In a recent controversy, some celebrity/politician defamed and tweeted ill against a renowned Jain Saint. On the one hand, the renowned Jain Saint showed his greatness by forgiving, “on his own”, the people behind those crap thoughts, who tried to throw garbage on him. While, on the other hand, one of the contractors of religion was heard stating that it will be cowardice on the part of the entire Jain community if they forgive such acts, as well as, the person who spoke ill against the Jain Saint.

Hats off to all those people who preach such kind of provoking thoughts and still claim themselves to be a preacher of Jainism! No, I am not advocating here with about tolerating nuisances, at all. What I mean to say is that isn’t it enough to peacefully protest and register our complaints against the culprits, in all such cases, and wait for the law enforcement agencies to take necessary actions against them, rather than provoking the innocent masses to unnecessarily get aggressive? Any stupid action in such cases not only shifts the focus from the main issue, but it also defames the religion at large, just because of such provoking statements made by a few persons, who fail to think about the repercussions of their statements.

I do hope that the advocates of non-forgiveness and for that matter banning things do know that Lord Mahaveera never forced anyone to follow the path or the preaching of Jainism. Do remember that Jainism is all about Non-Violence and Forgiveness. Jainism is not about forcing one’s thoughts on others. Jainism is more than a religion, it’s a thought that evoked and developed over time through introspection and learning. Hearts can be won by requesting and enlightening but not by force.

At last, with folded hands, I seek forgiveness from every single soul who felt bad or got hurt, knowingly or unknowingly, due to any of my actions/deeds/words, etcetera. I would like to end this blog with the very thought that let’s forget all the bad memories and start a new relationship.

Micchami Dukkadam!

Jai Jinendra!

Let us celebrate ‘FAILURE’

This blog is dedicated to each one of us. Yes, we all want to achieve success and only success, each and every single time. We all try to run away from the very fact that there is always a probability of failing, in anything that we are going to attempt. But let us all accept the hard core reality that each and every one of us is going to fail, sometimes or the other. We all get depressed with our failed attempts, every now and then. But when it comes to success, we enjoy it like anything. Time and again, this question appears in my mind that is this the right way to deal with failure?

Ever thought that why we treat failure with such inferiority? Is getting depressed and feeling bad about failures, the right kind of attitude to carry on? Aren’t success and failure like two sides of the coin? Can success be achieved without failing ever? Isn’t failure the stepping stone towards achieving success? I sometimes think that is there anything wrong in failing? Why is the failure not accepted at ease in our society? Why is the failure not taken as a usual thing? Isn’t failure an important ingredient of the recipe named as success? So what if one eventually doesn’t succeed? So what if someone was throughout the life a failure? Why can’t we recognize their efforts, irrespective of the end results? Why do we look upon the people who fail, as if they are an inferior soul? Is there anyone on earth who hasn’t failed ever in their life?

I have experienced ‘Failure’ throughout my life. I have failed at least once, in almost everything that I have ever tried. I started my journey of life with a failed attempt when I tried to crawl for the very first time and I failed even when I took my first step to walk. I failed in my exams, in my relationships, in the games that I played, in the arguments, in the fights, in the projects that I handled and the list goes, on and on. I failed at my home, at my workplace, at streets, all in all, there is no place left where I haven’t failed yet. I even failed to save someone’s life. But in spite of these failures, each and every time, I won something that I am always proud of. “I won the lifetime ‘experience’ from every failure”.

Since we attach celebrations with winning, so isn’t failure an occasion to celebrate? Yes, it is something to celebrate about, but, if and only if, we are determined to learn from our failures. I believe that “Failure is the best teacher”. So why to disregard one of our best teachers? We should rather give the due respect this teacher named ‘Failure’ deserves from us and the best way to pay back is by embracing the learning that every failed attempt brings with it. I am sure failure pops up a common question in most of the minds i.e. “Why Me”. Instead, we should learn from our failures by asking ourselves the question that “What’s there for Me” to learn from this failure.

Success is a journey of ‘learning’ which should be measured by the quantum of learning gained, rather than the result achieved”. It’s rightly said that it is far better to fail, then to never try. So keep trying and do whatever your heart wants you to pursue. Don’t care about failure or success. Do remember that in the end what will matter is the baggage of experience one carries with them. It’s the only thing one will be looked upon for sharing with the generations to come. Obviously, the success achieved also brings with it immense learnings. Hence, what we all should be caring about is ‘learning’. Learn from each and everything. Let the fire of learning be always ignited in your heart.

So, stop caring about others and let’s “Flaunt and Celebrate our failures”. After all, the count of failures will always outnumber the winners; as such, we will always have the privilege to, at least, boast about the gathering in our celebration. Let the world envy us for enjoying our failures. Let’s get over the rat race of running after success. Stop thinking about the end results and start enjoying the efforts behind the failed attempts.

Do take a good care of yourself and be in touch.

God Bless you all!

Navratri – Time to worship a Goddess, in real sense

It’s the time of the year that marks the celebration of Navratri in India. Navratri is the festival of worshiping the goddesses of courage. The goddess which symbolizes a lady who is courageous enough to stand for her rights, a lady who is not afraid of anything, a lady who doesn’t differentiate between the doers of injustice, but instead make sure that whoever is the culprit gets punished for their acts, a lady who don’t sulk in pain, a lady who is an idol in real sense. So it’s the right time to recognize and show our respect towards the real living goddesses on planet earth i.e. all those ladies whose conducts showcase that they overcome all the odds in life with the courage they carry.

At the start of this blog, let me make it very clear that I am writing this blog, with all my senses, and I have no regrets for anyone who is “intended” to get hurt because of the contents of this blog. This blog is meant to hurt the feelings of all those females “who think themselves as helpless”. However, this does not imply to hurt all those females who are trapped in such a situation, wherein it’s impossible for them to make their voice heard. At the same time, this blog will serve its purpose, if it is also able to hurt the feelings of all those hypocrites, who publicly preach about the rights of a woman, but in reality, don’t hesitate in snatching away the dignity of the ladies that comes on their radar. Most importantly this blog is to recognize and respect the real goddesses around us, who are brave in their thoughts, as well as, in their conducts.

It is rightly said that tolerating sin, is a sin as well. Not only the one who do injustice but the one who tolerates the injustice done with them are equally responsible. So, all those females who think that they are helpless, and hence don’t stand against the injustice done to them or don’t even try to disclose the injustice that has happened to them, should also be held responsible for any misdeeds that happened with them. Yes, if you don’t have the guts to come out in open and speak for your rights or drag the culprits out and bring those wrongdoers in public eye, then you are making your life miserable. And mind it, by you being silent, not only you alone become the victim of such insane people, but in a way, you help them in victimising the other girls too. Have the courage to speak out ‘LOUD’ at the very first incidence; else you are going to be slaughtered with many such incidences, every now and then, in your life.

Even children know that when they are hungry they have to cry and make a sound for their mother to realize that the child is hungry and feed them. Then aren’t we all in a far better position to understand that without making our voice heard, we may not get what we deserve? Hence, until the time you unveil about the misdeeds that are happening with you, you are not going to get any help, neither you will be able to come out of that vicious circle, nor you can stop such ill minded people. Girls you got to wake up before it’s too late because no one else will help you until you help yourself. If you are afraid that what people will say when you disclose any such incidences, then keep getting scared because people have to say something on everything, and sorry to say that you have no other option then to sulk in pain. And for all those who fear for their life, do remember that it’s better to sacrifice our life fighting against the injustice, then to keep tolerating the misdeeds and continue living a life in pain.

Instead of begging for sympathies for all the wrong that happened with you, have the courage to come out in open and disclose the culprits. Till the time you do this, nothing is going to change the fate. Sympathies are for the ones who fight for their right, not for the ones who choose to live their life getting submerged in the quicksand of injustice. Whatever choice you make, it’s your life and your decision, but do remember that there are girls out there who are bold enough to take their first step and ensure that such ill minded people get what they deserve. All such living goddesses portray that although the circumstances forced them to encounter the worst moments of their life, but still all that suffering could not shatter their courage and they came out bravely in public like a tigress, against all those who did injustice towards them.

Hypocrites, who preach about woman’s right in public, but actually take advantage of all the females that come in contact with them, are like a sleeper cell. They may be living a respectful life around us, as an admired personality. They can be the father, brother, husband, neighbour, boss, senior, colleague, or in any other form. However, their real intentions are known only to the one who gets victimised by their acts. There is no other way to identify such lechers, till the victims open their mouth against them. So, ladies, you have to come out in open and reveal the identity of all these offenders.

All the hypocrite souls out there, do remember that when these ladies overcome their fear, it will be your last day to live a respectful life hiding behind the fake mask of decency you wear on. So better you stop your sinful acts and show respect towards other ‘living’ beings. Don’t treat women as a mere object to satisfy your lust. Don’t dare to misuse your positions to take advantage of the ladies that are in your vicinity. It will be your biggest mistake if you think that the woman is a weaker gender. It’s a woman who kept you in her womb and tolerated the immense pain during the delivery, which males can never ever think of going through. So the next time before you even think of snatching away the dignity of any woman, do remember that she could be a real goddess to slaughter you and your lust.

As I always say that “It’s a high time we male take a pledge, that let the female be our mother, sister, friend, colleague, wife or in any other relation to name with but never ever be our victim”. So sooner the better every male realize woman as an important being on the planet and not an object to fulfil their undesirable lust.

This “Navratri”, make it a point to worship a real goddess, in a real sense. Worshiping in real sense means that we not only give them the respect they deserve as a living being but also recognize their hard work, their pains, their courage, as well as, stand with them in their time of needs. I would request all the females that do realize your strength and never ever consider yourself as helpless. Every one of you is a goddess of courage; it’s just that you have to realize your potentials. As Mr. Muhammed Iqbal rightly said that “Khudi ko kar buland itna, ke har taqdeer se pehley, khuda bandey se khud poochey, bata teri raza kya hai”.

It’s a request on this day of Navratri to all the brave ladies out there to accept a bow, as a gesture of respect. Hats off to all of you, for the courage you depict and sorry that at times you have to bear a lot of hardship. Be safe always in all the ways.

Happy Navratri!!!
