Who was Jinnah?

As soon as we hear the name Muhammad Ali Jinnah, popularly known as Jinnah, the picture of a person whom we consider utterly Muslim communal and hold responsible for one of the biggest tragedy in the history of Bharat; partition, comes to our mind. But actually who was Jinnah? Was he such a big follower of Islam and biased towards Muslims? Was he so much communal in nature? Was he the only living soul alive at that time responsible for partition? Continue reading “Who was Jinnah?”

The Eternal Truth


Although the Sethu Samudram project controversy had never lost its steam, but as soon as it had started taking a back seat in people’s ultra short lived memory, new developments took place which once again stirred the whole situation up and added that extra spice to the whole recipe. The whole drama of government submitting the affidavit stating that Ram never existed and then withdrawing it, unfolded in such a manner that it was nothing less than a complete Bollywood masala pic in itself.

Stung with Stinking Sting

Just a few days back the newspaper carried a story of 3 alleged blackmailers being arrested by the police, who were trying to extort money from 3 Jharkhand MPs. But they were not like any other blackmailers. They were special as their modus operandi included sting operations. They purposely tried to get the MPs involved in some way or the other so that they can carry out their so called sting operation, and then demanded money from them in return of keeping their sting away from public. Same day there was another news item Continue reading “Stung with Stinking Sting”


In my “Post Rakhi Post” I talked about the few things which are synonymous with this bhai-behan ka tyohar, one of them being the huge number of cars with women drivers (WMD) on the road. Almost every week there is some article or the other in some leading newspaper about Delhi cabs will be soon having WMD (not weapons of mass destructions), and how women are more responsible than male drivers. Then we also see articles about how the capital treats the women driving all alone, by giving those odd glances. So this post is about the WMD on the road and a few (quite odd) experiences which I have had with them. I won’t be surprised if after reading this post, some of you especially females, may regard my views as gender racist (don’t know even if it’s a valid term or not?), but let me tell you that these are real life experiences without any fabrications.

History of Violence

Kabhi Na bhool divide and rule. My history teacher once told this phrase to the class while teaching some lesson on British rule. She told us that it was the British who sow the seed of hatred among Hindus and Muslims. It was they who inculcated this hatred to keep their Raj intact. It was the British who first introduced our country to communal violence. Before the British came to our country, no one really worked on religious lines. Before the British came, Hindus and Muslims always lived happily together and bla bla bla. In a nut shell there used to be the golden days of Hindu Muslim unity and how peace prevailed everywhere. But, doesn’t some time all these claims made by almost every intellectual and historian of our country looks very hollow? Doesn’t it feel as if these are nothing more than few of the other myths about our history? Doesn’t it seem as if the reality is hiding somewhere out there? Doesn’t it appear as if we are deliberately turning a blind eye towards the truth? It certainly does to me, atleast.

During the days of my Graduation, i was living away from home and in my college campus in suburbs of a small city in Uttar Pradesh. My college a Christian minority institute was located in a densely populated Muslim town, with a population of approximately 8000 students from each corner of this grand subcontinent, mine institute was the main source of living for the local Muslim and non muslim population.

“We are friends to our kids…we say no for nothing”…okay…so thats how u sum up a friend’s job?? This “parents r like friends” theory doesn’t really set into me…

Parents today take the path of saying no to nothing, just in order to stay in control…or atleast claim that they are the ones in control..

Who’s Secular and Who’s Not?

As soon as one mention about communal forces faces of RSS, BJP, Shiv Sena etc. strikes our mind and that too with a blitzkrieg speed. On the other hand when we talk about secular groups or parties, within no time we tend to think about Left, BSP etc. with congress being the main protagonist. All the credit for our country becoming secular after partition being held on religious lines and Pakistan ending up as a Muslim state goes to congress and from time to time the party leaders have also cried hoarse in claiming their secularity. In today’s world what we see is not always true and what we perceive from what others have to say is seldom true. So is congress really secular to the extent to which it claims to be?

Saffronisation of Books

In the midst of the sex education controversy a lot of things are being said against the policies of our current HRD minister Mr. Arjun Singh. But what is funny to see, are the remarks which are coming against our former HRD minister Mr. Murli Manohar Joshi. One such remark which I still remember, published in Hindustan Times by Mr. Vir Sanghvi, said that, Continue reading “Saffronisation of Books”

MP- Mobile [MANIAC] Phones!!!

Mobile phones are one thing which almost everyone is carrying around. Age, religion, sex, occupation, social status and caste are the parameters which no longer define the genre of mobile phone users. From a school going child to the person doing PhD, from the peon of a local-small office to the M.D of an MNC, from housewives to Home minister, everyone is using a mobile phone, courtesy cheap handset and schemes like lifelong validity, anyone can own one and that too at throw away prices. But this entry is certainly not about the increasing no. of mobile phone [MP= mobile phone or maniac phone as they should better be called] users or about the reason behind this increasing no.
