Cowardice of Taliban

So Taliban attacked a school in Peshawar and killed more than 130 students to prove which point?

The point that they are a group of monsters and coward idiots who have nothing better to do than trying to intimidate kids. First Malala and now this barbaric act. It is a fact known to almost everyone that this and other group of terrorists calling themselves Muslim are not Muslims. Because I live is Bhopal and I have many Muslim friends and Colleagues who would never support such acts.

Taliban says that its an act of revenge against Pakistan government but if it's an act of revenge then are they such cowards that they can't attack the government or military? Admittedly Taliban and Terrorist attacks have been Pakistan's problems for last few years but they still don't acknowledge their hand in creation of the giant of terrorism instead blaming India for the attacks.

Pakistan was the breeding ground for terrorism and now the baby which they birthed is vying to destroy their parent - Pakistan. I am extremely sad about this unnecessary loss of innocent lives. The kids who didn't know any better, kids who were in the school to learn to secure their future. Yet in a horrific act of cowardice their future was stolen from them. Many a families hopes and dreams were shattered because some people are hiding behind religion like they have always done throughout history. They hide behind religion so that people can be goaded or mislead in joining them.

No religion in the world advocates death and blood of innocents least of it Islam.  I am not sure what else would Pakistan need to act upon the menace of terrorism and destroy it from the inside out so that the entire sub-continent and world can be safer. We need this because it is possible only after world peace that we can usher into a future which is better than the present. Where innocents won't be killed just because they are not from the same religion or may be even if they from the same religion. No one should worry about loosing their lives when they are on the road, in the office or in the school.

I am too sad and too outraged to stop and for that reason I would have to stop or I would keep on writing and nobody would be able to read this. In the end I would like to say that I am a human being do not support such barbaric acts of cowardice and hope that the governments which are elected for the progress of country and safe keeping of it's citizens start doing just that instead of harboring hatred and malice towards their neighbors.

A Better Future?

According to you what would be a better future? The one promised by Sci-Fi movies and novels or the one where no kid goes hungry and our country is 100% educated. I believe almost everyone would agree that the second version is better because once we ensure that kids in our country are well off and educated only then can we expect to grow to be a developed country.

Unfortunately even before we do that we have to take care of our present and ensure that we as a society and a country make sure that children of our country don't have to choose between education or food. Sadly it's a truth that even after so many years of our independence there's a even bigger divide between rich and poor and many families and children are forced live under poverty where in most of the times they aren't even sure of their next meal.

When it comes down to the choice people would always choose food over other options as it is tied directly towards our survival. What we can do is make sure that children in our schools are fed properly so that they are motivated to attend school and create a better future for themselves as well. We need to increase awareness about the fact that education is the only real way to rise out of poverty. And the more educated people we have, more earning for family would be there.

In any case we shouldn't have to worry about these questions but unfortunately we have the biggest gaps in the disparity when it comes down to rich India and poor Bharat. On one hands we have shiny and modern malls and then we have slums joined with the same malls. It should be everyone's responsibility that we ensure that the no food what so ever is wasted anywhere across the country, because we can't afford to waste any food when a large part of our country's population lives below poverty line.

      We have to make sure that our infrastructure is improved throughout to ensure that we start taking care of edible items right from the fields and there should not be any wastage when our farmers put in their body and soul to increase the yield of their fields. It would  a slow process but we already have many wonderful people working towards the betterment of the scenario and organization like "Akshaya Patra" are doing just that and I applaud for overtaking such a noble initiative.

Hunger vs Education

If you have to choose between hunger and education, what would you chose? No child should have to face that question but unfortunately in our country that is the reality of millions of kids who have to answer that question on a daily basis. 

In India there are millions of people living below poverty line and struggle daily for their survival and in order to do that they rope in all of their family members to assist them but due to that kids can't attend school and miss out out on the future which education would've provided them.

In order to attract kids to school many programs were started like mid-day meal to make sure that kids are provided a healthy meal during lunch and they could build their futures too with the gift of education. Unfortunately in spite of valuable effort by many good people and organizations kids in classes still go hungry.

In order to make sure that no kids go hungry in our school's classrooms we need to ensure that we run programs and ensure that we are able to provide healthy meal to the kids without fail. This aim would only be possible if everyone joins hand and take oath to ensure that no food is wasted ever again. We need to improve storage and infrastructure all across India to ensure that we safe as much as good right from the start. We lose millions tons of wheat every year as it’s stored in open fields rather than a closed warehouses.

Sadly we are a wasteful society, just think about how much food is wasted after a wedding function and we have thousands of weddings each month and we can make sure that instead of wasting that food it is used for feeding kids in school. Once again everyone has to join hands to ensure that we make our dream India of future.

Just think of the possibilities if we are able to ensure that each student is fed and educated. Education is solution to most of our problems and if everyone is educated we can be a hub for skilled labor too and provide a tough competition to countries like China and Taiwan etc. in production of highly technical products like computer parts and smartphones etc.

I am really glad that has provided us bloggers this chance to help feed a child for a year and I applaud this initiative and hope that all the bloggers India have come together to help kids have a future.

Pre-Marital Sex, Yes or No?

This post has been written for a contest organized by with Poonaam Uppal asking us a question - "YES or NO to Pre-Marital Sex"

To begin with an answer I say YES to the Pre-Marital Sex, and I am married so don't think I am being greedy by saying yes to Pre-Marital Sex.

Now to provide the explanation behind my answer. Sex or Making Love is the culmination or destination of all relationships. The problem is with our thinking which has distorted and portrayed a beautiful thing like sex as a hideous monster. Almost everyone in our BIG country is afraid to talk about sex, why?

Sex makes us uncomfortable no scratch that sex doesn't make us uncomfortable it's talking about sex that makes us uncomfortable. Of course we all love sex, our population is proof to that. There should be more discussions on sex so that we as a society can be comfortable talking about sex or discussing our problems related to sex. We should not be shy about asking for condoms at the medical shop. 

I am in support of Pre-Marital Sex because it's a personal matter between two people who are in love and we have no right to comment about anybody's personal life. If two people love each other and trust each other then there is no reason why can't they have sex provided they use protection that's where proper sex education comes in picture. 

Like most of the important educations either our schools skip it or we skip it. There are very few trained drivers on our roads because most of us learn driving from our elder brothers or friends. Same thing is with the sex, since we have no proper sex education, people seek alternate channels to know more about it and then it takes them through seedy paths forming a negative or unnatural picture about the whole process.

I am in favour of Pre-Marital Sex because it's a debate mostly because if people have Pre-Marital Sex and they don't get married then the girl will no longer be a virgin, what a shame? Actually this entire concept of virginity is so contrived because all around the world only girls are expected to be virgins but no one puts that responsibility for boys. If sexual relations are alright for boys before wedding then same should be allowed for girls too. 

Why Pre-Marital Sex is big thing now because we as a species are highly sexual and as early as 70-80 years ago the average age of marriage in our country was under 18 which is now in late 20s. Now people are geared more towards affairs and relationships before they get married. And if two responsible adults have a relationship then what they do in that relationship is their business and nobody else's.

So I would like to stop here saying once again that I support and say YES to Pre-Marital Sex because as per me this is are not wrong just use protection kids.
