The recent events in Punjab (India) have been shocking and heart breaking. It is really sad to hear all the news that is going on. Why in their sane brains will Someone do what they are doing. There seems to be a very deep and meticulously planned conspiracy behind the sordid acts of blasphemy. Torn pages of Guru Granth Sahib ji, The holy book and Guru of Sikhs are being found daily.

It is Such a Shame for Each citizen of the country especially those who go around talking of equality and India rising that such incidents are still part and parcel of our country, How can any sane person say that India is shining.

I don’t care who is doing all this or which political party is behind this atrocity, All Separatists agencies have an agenda, The Government especially the one in Power has its own agenda, I guess they Both want Citizens to stay focus on everything other than economics, rights and prosperity. What is more painful is that the police is a mere spectator and does not seem to have a CLUE what is going on. I can understand that the BADAL government is probably not interested in sorting this because it helps them tremendously blaming all the events on to the opposition party, But then the Badal govt has never ever done anything for the good of the state or religion. They have always been interested in their own.

Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal party is not only a political party but is also a religious party, So can a leader stay a leader on just MORAL grounds.

How can another religious faction desecrated the Sikh scripture and that too in Public, without the knowledge of Government, either the intelligence agencies in the state are a waste of space of the Govt itself is Highly Stupid. I dont see any other reason.

To make matters worse when a peaceful protests was organised they got marred with police opening fire on them, which left a couple dead and many injured and then to top it the Govt. Calls in the Indian Army and orders a media blackout, We are still in a Democratic Country HELLO.

This all brings back the memory of the dark days of terrorism, 1984. It seems to be history repeating itself and that too in a mere 30 year turnaround, exactly same scenarios took place then, the desecration and sacrilege of the Holy book.  We all know what happened then and how NOT A SINGLE person has ever been sentenced for the atrocities committed inspite of knowing who they are, Which in itself is so SHAMEFUL and a Blot on Indian history.

The little media coverage that is out there further is more appalling and difficult to know what the true situation is , rumours are flying around like a bushfire, yet all the GOVT and OPPOSITION can do is blame each other for political mileage.  I am sure IF the govt has nothing to hide then why a censorship on Media, Look what happened to minorities in the countries where censorship was imposed

I found the following lines so very true to my heart

Hasenge hasayenge Jag ko hasaane waale

Baat ka batangad banalete hain zamaane waale

Sharm ki baat kahoon Yaan Dharam Ki baat kahoon

EK hi Jaise hain mandir aur Masjid Ko girane waale

People will laugh At and With those who make you laugh

People make a mountain out of a molehill

If I talk of religion-culture-race anything

They are all the Same WHO bring down a Temple or a Mosque or a Gurudwara

Recent incidents taking place in the state of Punjab have truly shocked me, it was more for me because I could never believe at first how things have deteriorated in the country from bad to worse.  Especially after listening to all long claims made all over the media about how the nation is developing, India Shining , How we are getting more educated , How this or that BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH…

What amazes me more is the way people have started to live , as long as nothing is happening to them or their families , or as long as nothing is happening that is affecting them personally then EVERYTHING IS FINE.

Just a few days back a 13 year old girl is molested in a BUS, and then she and her Mother are thrown out of the moving bus resulting in the little Girl Dead- MURDERED and the mother getting hurt ASSAULTED (in UK terms i will say GRIEVOUS BODY HARM)

I have been keenly following this episode and reading the tamasha that is going on, the political parties , leaders , officials are all trying to get some mileage at the cost of 13 years old’s LIFE.  I mean they are even arguing over the amount of compensation offered, I read the following in one of the newspapers

“Members of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) comprising farmer unions, labour unions, the Left parties and the Punjab Student Union sparred with AAP activists over the compensation amount.
The JAC said it was satisfied with Rs 20-lakh offer and a guaranteed job for the girl’s father and was ready for the compromise to end the stalemate over ceramtion of the body. The JAC said a compromise was almost reached between government representatives – district magistrate PS Gill, DIG Amar Singh Chahal, SSP Jatinder Khaira and SDM Surinder Kaur – and its activists. However, the girl’s father was taken to a corner by some AAP members who later returned to announce that no compromise has been reached, claimed JAC.”

What sort of people are these I wonder, How can someone say oh this much is OK, or NOT OK, how can someone put a price on a fellow human being and that too murdered, Instead of arguing over money Shud they not be more worried about , HANGING the criminals Getting the culprits. Making sure such incidents don’t happen again.  Taking money or whatever compensation is up-to the Family of the girl, their own personal and private affair, WHAT has it got to with all these political parties.

What is worst is this has now become a Political Tamasha as the opposition’s have found a shoulder to put their guns on and FIRE a salvo at the punjab government, I know the current GOVT is probably the WORST ever to come to power but then who is to be blamed for that THE PEOPLE who voted for them.  When the same opposition was in power they did nothing themselves , so what right do they have using this episode.

A similar thing happened a few years ago in Guwahati there was so much shouting and what not by all the political parties, but what has happened I doubt if anyone even remembers what happened then.  We are such people, episodes happen we shout and shout , in a few weeks something else happens and we move on to that episode, That is WHO WE ARE, I dont have any shame in accepting this, Maybe I am also part of the same group of people, So it is US the people who are to be blamed for all that is happening.

This is what we are, more than the molesters, the number of people watching is more..so who is a bigger CRIMINAL, the one doing the act or the ones standing there enjoying the Show…..

It takes a loud voice to make the deaf hear, with these immortal words uttered on a similar occasion by Valiant, a French anarchist martyr, do we strongly justify this action of ours. This is how the above notice was put all over the nation in those days of the british RAJ.. signed by Balraj  Commander-in-Chief  (Balraj was the pseudonym of Chandra Shekhar Azaad , The commander-in-chief of the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association (army))

I am sorry to say we are more worried about the black money and Lot of STUPID PROBLEMS or other things BUT When and WHO will fight for the basic things.

Where are the Baba Ramdev’s , The Gandhians, The Anna hazaare.. What is more important to fight or have these rally’s to bring back the black money or make sure such incidents don’t take place and if they do take place then the culprits ARE CAUGHT not in half hour , not in 24 hours BUT AT THE EARLIEST,  What is more important, SHOULD the police not be brought to the DOCKS , they are paid to protect us, WHY are the culprits not arrested ALL OF THEM..

Why is Not a single police officer sacked.

Ladies and gentleman it is time to get together and  stand together and make a NOISE .. A NOISE THAT will make the DEAF hear for believe it or not , OUR SOCIETY, US, our leaders , our office bearers are no other than DEAF.. they don’t hear anything Till a loud noise is made ..

“I Dont want your tears , I don’t want your pity, I want your ANGER about this system, Given your anger CHANGE WILL COME, Unless there is anger  how can everything change ” ? 

I say that too,  MAKE THAT NOISE , WAKE THE DEAF.

hathyar hi sute haje chalaune nahin aseen bhule  

raflaan diyan nalaan de rakhe ne muh haje tak khule

jit ke ja waddi hai kithe thagan di toli

(We might have thrown our WEAPONS (hathyaar).. But we have not forgotten how to use(chalauna) them,  We have kept the mouth of our RIFLES (raflaan) open,  Where do these THUGS go after winning the elections)

I leave you with a question (hope you have reached here reading this post)  Having a STONE in hand , Who are we going to hit it with ?  The molester OR THAT person who stood there watching the whole SHOW.

I will prefer to use my gun and shoot that who stood and watched the SHOW.. because that person is more of a culprit , I know the molester , I can see his face , but these who hide behind doing nothing are the WORST LOT.. they are the reason our nation is where it is now, they will be the next one to become molesters, rapists.. …   WE are the culprits..

PS:- I wrote “HOUSE” because there is a reason behind it, will explain in a post coming up 🙂

January is over and although I tried my level best to remain true to the rules of the blogathon , I failed a few times to post a post each day of the month, So sorry for that to the fellow participants and Congrats to all who managed to do it all..

I wanted to finish this little run with something that I believe in and want everyone who comes here to know. I am going to introduce you all to a person who all his life worked for the goodness of human beings, his selfless devotion to mankind. His name is Bhagat Puran singh. Not many KNEW about him because he did not have a AUDI with a Red light atop, He did not wear Silk or Saffron clothes, like every other TOM DICK AND HARRY claiming to be the righteous one.

SADLY we the people have always been lured to the magic of MONEY the magic of SHOW OFF, or SHOW BLITZ.. hundreds million of us go to the Temples – Gurudwara’s to worship, Ask god for this or that all the time , we all seem to get this false happiness in our heart that OH today we visited a holy place so god will be happy with us, We do various things to please the almighty YET we all including me seem to forget the basic teaching given to us by our God’s which says be a good human being, help others do what you can with your heart. NONE of us do that , we go about following the so-called BABA’s , the modern-day BABA’s who have tarnished the reputation of religion to a very low low level.

I have a good friend who is so happy that he boasts that every sunday he goes to the Gurudwara for two hours for SEWA, He stand and helps in washing of utensils, distribution of Langar, Clean the floors BUT I AM SORRY this is not SEWA, not at all, How can it be. Sewa is towards the needy, helping of fellow humans, MAJORITY of the people who visit the religious places are well off and can take care of themselves, So serving them food is not SEWA, or washing their utensils is Not SEWA, he has never done that in his own home.

Anyway Coming back to this man who was in Reality a man of god , and worked all his life in selfless devotion of other humans. HOW many know about him and compared to that how many know about the Rampal’s the nirmal’s. This is the hard truth people who actually work for the good of Man kind are seldom known. What have the so-called BABA’s EVER done which is good of mankind, NAME or Give me one such incident where ACTUALLY these so-called BABA’s have done anything for good other than become RICH.

Same goes for other charities, I think the best paid JOB or BUSINESS is to open up a charity, all the money we give to these charities hardly reaches to the people for whom the charities are set up, the so-called directors of charities are always RICH and MILLIONAIRES.

Our Religious Leaders are always so rich, How come they have so much money, Why are their so many fights over the ownership of a Religious place’s office, because of the Money involved, Today if everyone vows to stop putting money in the money-box of a temple or a Gurudwara all these committee members, the Pardhan’s, The Leaders will VANISH. God does not need money so WHY Are we putting all this money in the money boxes, When has God said give me money , I need money.

It is our fault that we have made it like this, we are so happy to go and put some money in a money-box in a temple, but we would not go out of our way to help a needy person, or even to feed a hungry person. Hence the business of religion has started were we feel that because we have given some money or a lot of money to a religious place , we have done a good deed, God will be happy with us..

People who actually work hard for the good of mankind that too selflessly are rarely rich or have the money to throw around.

Bhagat Puran Singh was born on June 4, 1904 in Punjab. he has dedicate his life to the ‘selfless service of humanity’. He founded Pingalwara in 1947 with only a few patients, the neglected and rejected of the streets of Amritsar., The govt of india takes so much appreciation for the so-called Green revolution but this man was actually An early advocate of the movement, He was spreading awareness about environmental pollution, and increasing soil erosion long before such ideas became popular in our country,.

He founded a HOME called Pingalwara, a home which long after his death, is still tending to the castaways of society: the sick, disabled and abandoned forlorn people.

It is sad that our governments and leaders go on and on how the needy need to be helped, how they spend so much money for the good of needy, YET none of the so-called CHARITABLE organisations have gone out of their way to help Pingalwara, We the people even will go and donate hundreds , thousands to a Temple or a Gurudwara, A Sadhu comes at our door we will give money to them BUT We hardly take out time to give money to such an institute which is doing so good.

There are hardly any Religious places which do what Pingalwara does, some do but then I find their office bearers take majority of the money for themselves.

Anyway I am not going to go on and on About this man, I am sure everyone has internet so go and do some surfing and Find out about this Great man who sadly passed away in 1992, I think this man’s work does the speaking I or anyone does not need to write essays about him. He shines above all and we need people like him to make our world a better place. So go and Read about this Selfless man, Know about a Kind Human being who teaches us what being a human is .

Also a Movie is made , I saw the trailer a couple of days back, I know some people here who have been so actively involved in the advertising of this movie, I would have been their at the launch of this movie but the last 3-4 weeks have been very catastrophic for me , so I could not go nevertheless do go and see this movie, know about a GOOD MAN.

Visiting pingalwara this year when I come to india is on the list , A lot of good people here are trying to raise some donations for me to carry.. It is an eye-opener to see Life as is in this home, The stories you hear , the smiling faces you see tell the whole story, I could not visit last year due to less time which again I feel is an excuse on my part , I should have made time but god willing this time for sure..

In the Title I had put the line othe amla de hone ne nabade  kissie ne teri Zaat puchni.. DOnt know what all we are running after in life, No one is going to bother what Race,Creed , color we are once we are dead.. it’s all the SAME..

Padi namaaz te Niyaaj na sukhiya,
Teriyan kis kaam padiyan namaazan

Ilam padiya te amal na kita,
Teriyaan  kis kaam kitiyan ibadaan

bulle shah pata odon lag si, jado chidi fasi hath baajan

Read the holy scriptures,
but you got no knowledge from it ..
Whats the use of Reading all that

All knowledge that you got ,
You did not act on them..
What use is that Knowledge..

Bulle Shah – Come to know the Truth when a Hawk has the Sparrow

othe amla de hone ne nabade  kissie ne teri Zaat puchni 
othe amla de hone ne nabade kissie ne teri jaat puchni

jhoothe maan tere jhoothe sab chehre
kissie nahin teri zaat puchni

oithe amla de hone ne nabade kissie ne teri zaat puchni- 

Up there is where all will end, NO one will ask what RACE-CREED you are

Its all a Lie this prestige-pride you talk off
No one is going to ask what Race-Creed you are

Reviving the Musical Monday Tradition, you can see old entries here (1 ,2,3..,9,1018,19,20 ) .. 26th January today .. so happy republic day to all Indians..

A song very close to my heart .. very old..
