Install Love

Tech Support: Yes, how can I help you?
Customer: Well, after much consideration, I’ve decided to install Love on my Hard Drive. Can you guide me through the process?
Tech Support : Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?
Customer : Well, I’m not very technical, but I think I’m ready, as long as you walk me through the steps. Tell me now, what do I do first?
Tech Support : The first step is to open your Heart. Have you located your Heart?
Customer : Yes, but there are several other programmes running now. Is it okay to install Love while they are running?
Tech Support : Er… what programmes are running, can you list them for me?
Customer : Let’s see, I have Past Hurt, Low Self-esteem, Grudge and Resentment running right now.
Tech Support : No problem, you can go right ahead. Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory but it will no longer disrupt other programmes.
Love will eventually override Low Self-esteem with a module of its own called High Self-esteem. However, you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment. Those programmes prevent Love from being properly installed.
Tell me, can you turn those off?
Customer : Umm… let me see. Actually, I don’t know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how? Please help.
Tech Support : With pleasure. It’s really quite simple. Go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have been completely erased.
Customer : Okay, done! Wow, Love has started installing itself. Is that normal?
Tech Support : Yes, but remember that you have only the base programme. It’s quite basic. You need to begin connecting to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades.
Customer : Oops! I have an Warning message already. It says, Programme not run on external components.’ What should I do now?
Tech Support : Don’t worry, relax. It only, means that the Love programme is set up to run on Internal Hearts, but has not yet been run on your Heart. In non-technical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others.
Customer : So, what should I do?
Tech Support : Pull down Self-acceptance; then click on the following files: Forgive Self; Realise Your Worth; and Acknowledge Your Limitations.
Customer : Okay, done. That wasn’t too difficult.
Tech Support : Now, copy them to the ‘My Heart’ directory. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming. . Also, you need to delete Verbose Self-criticism from all directories and empty your Recycle Bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.
Customer : Got it. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files. Smile is playing on my monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over My Heart. Is this normal?

Tech Support : Sometimes. For others it takes a while, but eventually everything gets it at the proper time. So Love is installed and running. One more thing before we hang up. Love is Freeware. Be sure to pass it and its various modules around to everyone you meet. They will in turn share it with others and return some cool modules back to you.
Customer : Thank you, thank you so much

Who is Abhinav Bharat ?

“Abhinav Bharat” is the name of the first revolutionary organisation in India, dates back to ~ 1905. Started by Damodar Veer Savarkar.

I had always wanted to name my initiative by this name. Never did I know what my initiative will be, but now that I started a blog, it had to carry this name. It is not the name of anybody related/concerned with me. In English, the word literally, stand for ‘Abhinav: Fresh & New’ and ‘Bharat: used synonymously for India’

Mitti ke Aasu

Aao ek baar kahen, aakhiri baar kahein,
kya pata tum na raho, kya pata hum na rahein;
Mandir-o-Masjid ki, ya kisi imarat ki…
maati to lagi isme bhai mere bharat ki,
lahu tha Hindu ka, Alah sharminda raha,
mara Musalmaan to, Ram kab jinda raha,
bikhre-bikhre hain sabhi, aao ek ghar me rahein
kya pata tum na raho, kya pata hum na rahein.


English Translation:
Come, lets talk about it, (may be) the last time;
Who knows weather you will survive or not, who knows weather I’ll survive or not, so lets talk now …
Oh brothers! Be it a Temple or a Mosque or any other building, the soil that is used to make it, is that of India itself.
when a Hindu bleeds, the Allah, is no less pained,
If the love exemplified by Ram had survived, Would a Muslim ever be killed ?
why are we so segregated, why are we so separated, come, lets live together,
who knows, if you will live by tomorrow or not!, who knows, if I will live by tomorrow or not.

This is a famous poem by “Sahir Ludhiyanwi”. I am thankful to Peeyush bhai to introduce it to me.


India and Intolerance

While reading some articles on the Internet, I noticed a few smoothly made conclusions about Intolerance as the order of the day in India.

I choose to differ, here are a few questions and facts we should consider.

  1. Is there a country in world, where, any brand of “M. F. Hussain” could breathe in open air and walk on his own limbs ? … somebody who can paint the very sacred ‘Bharat Mata’ in naked (Ref: Hussain’s official Website). I can recall the protests that got triggered worldwide, when a Danish Newspaper published a cartoon of a revered image in Islam. Can he even live in the US after painting the reverent of the majority in naked?
    … It happens only in India
  2. Islam first came in India through Kerela via sea route (India has her oldest mosque still in kerela). The word that was used for calling out the Muslims, who were ‘foreign’ to this land then, was ‘ALIYAN’ which in the local language (malayalam) means ‘son-in-law’, the son-in-law relation being one of the most valued in Indian families, and this word being used for the ‘incomers’ stands to say something.
  3. Arunachal pradesh had a 1% christian population before Independence, now that is 22%.
    (census 2001, is the latest officially available info). So is the case in many other states.

… lets not conclude anything from this, but it is indeed something worth a thought.

There is indeed a bigger part to the story.

These points cover only those that are needed to unmask the bias that was conspicuous on the internet.
