Hey Ram… September 19, 2007Posted by PagMax in Hindu, India, Politics, Ramayana, religion, sethusamudram project.
Note: Post slightly outdated, I wrote it last week but could not find time to post it.
When it comes to protecting our protector, GOD, India has always been a step ahead. And as long as RSS and VHP are around, Lord Sree Rama has nothing to fear. Didn’t they prove it once on December 6th 1992?
Last year around this time, Indian politicians were awfully conscious about 100th Anniversary of Vande Mataram. This year, their memory seems to be little rusty on 101th Anniversary. However, they have a bigger history to protect this year. Rama Sethu (Adams Bridge) of Ramayana which Rama used to crossover to Sri Lanka!
Hyderabad! August 26, 2007Posted by sk in Hyderabad, Hyderabad Bomb Blasts, India, Political, religion.
I recently had a conversation with a friend about communal violence in India. He is from Ahmedabad. I told him how Hyderabad, despite the diversity was safe and how all those terror attacks etc. were things of the past. Well, how wrong I was. Within two weeks of my conversation, two bomb blasts shook Hyderabad killing over 40 people. I am not going to blame the entire Muslim community in Hyderabad, but there are definitely people who are sympathetic to Osama and Al Qaeda and they need to be weeded out of the community. Otherwise, sadly, this is not the last of such events. I’m not really sure that the AP Government is interested in tackling this issue, as much as it is in sweeping it under the carpet. Hopefully, I’m wrong on this one too.
Space, Religion and Journalism December 27, 2006Posted by PagMax in ISRO, religion, science, space, Vatican.
I am finally writing after a LONG time out of my really lazy schedule. Probably my last one for this year and this year ends in 4 days.
Just for the starters, this academy is part of Vatican (though claims to function independently) and aims at devlopement of scientific research. Pretty noble idea, however, here are two issues (not related to each other and not directly related to this news) which popped into my mind
Riya Sen and Ashmit Patel MMS clip September 14, 2006Posted by PagMax in Bollywood, MMS Clips, religion.
Sometimes I feel religion is the most ungodly thing created by human. Yes, it does give a purpose of life to many and code of conduct to live with and a fear of ‘HELL’ and greed of ‘HEAVEN’ brings lot of good things to life. But look at the flip side: While God is here to protect human, religion made human protect God. And when it comes to protecting God, its never a pretty scene to watch.
oh regarding the clip… I have no idea who these people are and I surely do not have any such clip. I just heard something like that was bouncing around the web and I used that to trap you
Anyway, talking about religion, my last post ended with last few comments on how some Islamic extremist use the 72-virgin-after-death trap to incite people on spreading ‘Jihad’ on Earth. (Look who is talking on trapping!) While Islam enjoys the reputation of non-peaceful religion due to recent events, if you turn the pages of history, the way I understand it, its hardly the only religion which saw the bloodshed under its shadow. Hindus, Christian, Jews all have blood on them.
Fine, I lied again. I know who Ashmit and Riya are but I swear forget the MMS, I have never even seen them in a normal bollywood movie.
And then talking about poor Jews, until recently they were more of a victim than perpetuators. Passion of the Christ was certainly not the only anti-Jew act. I could never figure out what did Jews do so bad to annoy Egyptians, Romans, German, Middle Eastern and Mel Gibson. In any case, times have changed now. They do not need any more sympathy. They are strong enough to kill Jew-haters now which they proved quite recently. (Although, they failed to prove lot of other things there but I will not get into all that now)
Common, get over it. There is no clip. And why the hell do you want to see any such clip anyways? Make one for yourself.
Ok, back to the topic. As some one said, (cannot recall who, may be George Bernard Shaw) but not sure. If dogs would have God, God would look like Dog. Or better yet, if triangles have God, God would have three sides. Wonder why it is so difficult for anyone to accept a simple fact that everyone portray religion as per his own image.
You wont give up. would you? Fine. You will get to see some clip. Keep reading if you have reached so far.
As for me, I believe in God but I will not even attempt to portray how It would look like. Wait.. Islam also says something like that. Never portray God. ‘Tismar Khan’ sounds Islam enough. So if I kill some unholy people, for instance Himesh reshammiyya and Mandira Bedi, I might get that deal on 72 virgins after death…!
That’s only if wishes were horses but everything what you are told is not what you get. (A feeling you just experienced).
AND A NOTE TO ALL THE MORONS WHO ARE LEAVING COMMENTS ASKING ME TO SEND THE MMS CLIP
GET THE HINT: THIS IS A JOKE…I AM NOT A SUPPLIER OF MMS CLIPS AND I DO NOT HAVE ANY.
