Not for my friends!

 

The lot of free time I have has now made me blog quite often! I like blogging. It fulfills me as a hobby, But the sad part is that I don’t have a big count in readership. Frankly, I don’t even know how many read my blog. Considering that I’m a lethargic log of wood, and my reluctance to write when there is some new video on hard disk, I can safely draw a rough estimate of number of readers I have. So let me try to count the number of people who know about this blog, and probably also read it.

  1. Manasa. She is my schoolmate and also one of the very first readers of my blog. I wrote to her when I started blogging(while I was in touch with her). She even commented once or twice. But later as I eventually lost touch with her, I stopped getting SMS feedback form her.
  2. Sapna. She too was my schoolmate, and one of the readers when my blog on blogger started getting big. I have lost touch with her too, but I can assume that she still reads my blog(Coz she has a lot of free time).
  3. Abhijeeth. He is my collegemate. We stayed in the same hostel, and accessed internet together at the internet centre before the campus went wifi. He was sitting besides me when I was updating my blog. Since then, I have heard him once or twice talking about my blog.
  4. * N Bhat. (sorry, cant mention her first name) She was my school mate and also a kind of special one to me. Though we were not dating, We were strangely close. I remember hearing from her that she finds my write up attractive.
  5. Priyank Madyastha. He is my roommate and also one of my best friends since three years. I had asked him to read and rate my blog when I had written on terrorism. I hope is still reads my work.

The number seems to be really less, mainly because I never promoted my blog amongst my friends. Only my best friends know about my blog. I want only two types of readers; ones who are my best friends and the others whom I have never met. Yes strange as it sounds, I write primarily write for strangers. And expect them to also clap at times J

So the number of readers are, 5+n. where n stands for the number of people I don’t know, who read my blog.

PS: Please write a comment or push the like button, I really need a count, my dear boys and girls J

Visit to Ram Mandir

Happy ram navami friends. I pray this navami brings you all the joy and success you wish.

Today is ram navami, the day prince ram was born. It’s a big festival for a lot of hindu’s in India.  Since I belong to a Brahmin family, and also being a vaishnavite, this is a big festival for us. But in our family, the intensity of the pomp of celebration of this particular festival has gradually sloped down. So chaturthi and Krishna Janmasthami are the two most important festivals we celebrate.

Irrespective of the pomp being high or low, feast is never compromised. Had amazing lunch today and later visited our temple. It was such a long time since I went to kashi mutt ram mandir! I have literally spent half my childhood there. All those memories came back to me today. I guess I was in 2nd or 3rd standard when I used to go there every Saturday to blow conch during aarthi. I felt my place was so important back then!  And the priest and his assistant showed a lot of affection to me. They used to an extra banana as prasadam. They used to say ‘Look, lord ram is smiling because you came today’. I used to believe that and it made me so happy. I never used to miss going there during childhood.

But later as I grew up, I realized that lord ram’s idol smiled 24×7. There was another small kid who was a conch enthusiast. I gave up my position for him, and saw exactly the same feel of importance on his face that I had. And the priest told the same line to him J

Today, I saw everything has changed. The flooring which was I guess red oxide, is now granite. New glowing walls, paintings of avarats of lord maha Vishnu, lights of different shades, expanded entrance, bars for the devotees to stand in queue. Even the priest is a new guy,lLot more commercial than the old one. But the idol of ram has not changed, it gives the temple, a look of 40’s. no matter what amount of  renovation they bring!

Views on a blog called Dalit Nation

Hello readers,

This post, unlike rest of the, is a very serious one. So before moving on to the serious part, I would like to say that I am a man with exceptional tranquility of mind, which keeps me cool and always unbiased.
I views I have written is based on what I could comprehend by standing at a neutral point. Hence I’m not representing a particular community here, but im only speaking out my mind.

Despite being born in a Brahmin family, that too in the blood line of the great sage Vishwamitra, I have never been proud of the caste system that is being followed(or should I say had been followed). I have never bothered to find out why it was followed and what parameters were used for discrimination because such discriminations were too far away from my conscious.

But yesterday when I went through a blog in the wordpress called dalit nation, I felt far too ashamed. It was an absolutely senseless content written by a total retard. Some of my friends were passing around that link since the extent of stupidity of that writing turned out to be humor. Here is the link

Assuming that you have read it, you would have already come to know that the writer of that post has nothing to offer to our country, but hatred. They hate the upper cast so much that they had to bring aishwaria rai into the scene and cook story on how the upper cast people tormented her life. I’m very sure that even Aishwaria Rai would be shocked on reading this.

It said,
When Aishwarya Rai joined movies the brahmin and Bania toilet papers like Times of India, Hindu and Indian Express were seething with jealousy. They made claims that she does not know any acting. They always sided with their jatwallah actress like the maharistrian brahmins Madhuri Dixit and Sonali Bendre.

OMG, what have they been smoking? In the very first place, Aishwaria Rai is not a dalit! Secondly, Its not fair to call the national newspapers as bania toilet papers! And who on earth cares for the caste of the girls who work in the movies?

The wily upper caste people in Bollywood tried to set up Aishwarya Rai with the upper caste wallahs. But our Shudra sister Aishwarya never relented. It was during this time when she was harassed by these papans that Salman Khan rescued her. Salman Khan being a muslim wanted to get married to Aishwarya Rai and save her from the oppressive Hindu caste system.

Haha, I have read nothing more stupid than this!

But the upper caste wallahs started spreading all kinds of rumors about Salman Khan. They called him a cocaine addict. These brahmins can go to any length. They will tell what suits their need. Finally they implicated Salman Khan in a fake accident case. They split these two people so that Aishwarya can stay in the evil Hindu caste system. This is what all these upper caste people have been doing to Dalits so that they can never escape from their tyranny.

Harry potter seems more real!

After this incident they did not leave Aishwarya alone. They hatched a conspiracy in UP and got the manuwadi Amar Singh to get Aishwarya married to Abhishek Bachan, a half upper caste sikh and brahmin.

Give me a break!!!

The problem according to me is that its is a political conspiracy to deliberately keep the backward community in dark so that they believe in all the nonsense that the political leaders have to say about the upper cast. The country can progress at a large scale, only when people like these are given education, and enough opportunities to come out of the dark circle they are kept in.

After reading the entire blog, I feel that our country is in a social emergency. The attitude that is being developed in the minds of the youth of the oppressed class due to the blogs like these, is very dangerous and threatening. What is the use of development, if the people cant acknowledge it? The govt and the people of the country have to take immediate steps to counter the backwardness in the minds of these people and bring them to the main stream. Till then, they will keep blaming the upper caste for all the bad that happens in the world!
I promise that once I start earning and become economically stable, I shall take the responsibility of educating at least 2 people of this community and put an end to their economic and social backwardness.

May the country prosper,

Jai Hind
