Moganlal vs Shoganlal – An Independence Day Story.

Once upon a time there lived two brothers in the country of Azad, named Moganlal and Shoganlal.
Not one family in Azad has forgotten the fateful day when the two brothers faced each other in court. But that story has to wait until we hear the story of Azad’s freedom.

The cost of Azad’s freedom
The prosperous and famous nation of Azad had various governors ruling over them who sold their land, their people and their freedom into the hands of a foreign superpower for personal benefit. This superpower, for decades and decades, oppressed them, plundered away their resources, almost ruined this beautiful nation and had laid heavy taxes on them.

Anything for freedom, Credits

The people of Azad hated their slavery. Many of them often tried to fight the superpower, but were no match to the enemy’s schemes. The ruling powers always overthrew them with manipulation.
There was always some price that Azad-wale were willing to pay to let their slavery continue. It could be money, women, free bungalows or even free wi-fi for life. Continue reading “Moganlal vs Shoganlal – An Independence Day Story.”

13 Signs You Are Neck-deep In The Indian Christian Sub-culture

Subculture : A group of people within a culture that differentiates itself from the larger culture to which it belongs. (Wikipedia)

India has so many subcultures; groups that have their unique characteristics and sometimes curious traditions. I could be identified as someone belonging to a certain Bible-believing, urban, Christian subculture. My subculture has its good and its bad and it’s funny. Here is a funny take on some of our quirkisms. Apologies if this hurts anyone- no offense, ok? 🙂

1) The word “ministry” has got to do more with pastors and missionaries than with the words ‘Defence’ or ‘Magic’.

2) When you hear the name Louis Pasteur, you think he is a pastor in your city, not a dead scientist.

3) No longer are angels, those chubby winged infants propped up in cathedrals- they are fiery creatures you would rather not meet in a hurry.

4) You are deemed intelligent if you know your state’s current Chief Minister’s name.

Oh Yes. Sarees Can Rescue Indian Women

saree, goa, minister, galti, ladies, it's their fault, Jesus, the problem of the heart, India, bas karo bakwaas, Bible, Indian Christianity, speak the truth in love, Yeshu ji please rescue our country

I would have loved to say – it is the way women dress that has brought about molesnation, the rape of life across India.

After all, if only women could cover themselves properly, would these cases of battery, abuse, rape and molestation drastically reduce. The alleged statements made by a minister in Goa helps this case further. Whether he was misquoted or not, it better be true that wearing sarees prevents eve-teasing. The responsibility then lies on the ladies, not on men. Now they can take initiative. Ladko se galti ho jaati hai, lekin ladies first.

Now sarees will protect Indian women!

Ladies, please wear sarees. Men will stop pinching your buttocks. Continue reading “Oh Yes. Sarees Can Rescue Indian Women”

Open Letter to Our Home Minister: From A Happy Beneficiary of Religious Conversion

Dear Shri Rajnath Singh ji,

I am glad that you have been placed in the right place and time to serve our great nation as our Home Minister. Recently, your statements seemed to ease increasing fears among minority communities. I am deeply thankful that unlike certain organisations, you view minorities as patriots.

At the same time, you also said, “Do we need to impose the supremacy of our faith over others? Can’t we decide that serving humanity is fine, but why do people have to be converted to another faith? Why are religious conversions being carried out?

I am bit confused as to how these questions supports freedom to propagate one’s religion as per Article 25 of our Constitution. I am hoping you only meant- Why are false conversions being carried out?

I understand if your angst is against false conversions- I share the same feeling. It is unfair when people use religion as a tool for unjust gain. So I have enjoyed recent movies like PK which challenge false spirituality which sadly exists in Bharat.

But Rajnath ji, did you know that genuine conversion is a purifying and lovely experience? Oh, how can I explain this in just writing!

Oh, the joy !

Since I have experienced only conversion to the Christian faith, allow me to briefly show how my conversion was  beneficial for me- Continue reading “Open Letter to Our Home Minister: From A Happy Beneficiary of Religious Conversion”
