That’s why I never joined any Taekwondo classes

     When I reached home today, I saw my cousin getting ready for Taekwondo classes. Looking at his bright white dress, I dived into memories which were almost faded and came back to me abruptly. That incident was special because that’s when I decided not to learn Taekwondo.
     Want to know the reasons????? then scroll down and read below.            
       While I was young I had seen other kids dressed up in remarkable ways with different colours of belt, on the back side of it written  ‘Taekwondo’ in bold letters.  They used to practice in an open area. I was very much fascinated by them. One day when I saw one of my classmates dressed in that white suit, my determination grew stronger out of envy. I reached home in the evening and asked my mother for it. Mother denied saying “I don’t have a single paisa, only I know how I manage household expenses with this meager money”. When I kept insisting she told me helplessly ‘Ask your father’.
         When father came home drunk,  I went to him and said  ‘papa I want Rs 200 to submit my  Taekwondo fee.   He answered amusingly ‘beta, I will make you learn it, just get kicked by me and you will learn it’. Had it been occurred to my siblings it would be amusing to me but when it happened to me I didn’t find it funny, not at all, not at least to me.  I knew my attempts would be futile but still I tried them.  I even went to bed without having my dinner but all in vain. 
       My desire for it was suppressed deep down within me. One day a classmate of mine told me that his brother teaches this form of martial art and charges just Rs.30. I knew I could manage it somehow,  atleast for a month. My friend told me to come to his home after school. I had been to his home twice so there wasn't any problem finding it. he lived in a  slum-like colony but slightly better than that, atleast they had pucca houses. He took me to the roof, where another of my classmate (his best friend) and his brother was waiting for me. His brother asked us to stretch our legs.  One of them  stretched his legs and the younger brother was standing still and watching us. I tried but couldn't stretch my legs as far as he was capable of.  His brother and other friend came to me to hold my legs. My one foot was in the other friends’ hands and another was on elder brothers’ hands and both pulled my legs to opposite directions. I cried in pain and pleaded them to stop but they went on for two minutes and those two minutes felt like two hours. Tears were rolling down through my eyes. When they were done, I felt like to get up and punch them in their face but the thought of repercussion of that made me stop.  I got up and pretended like I was fine though my legs were hurting, somehow my expression failed me and showed them I was in pain. This made them amused.
         The class was over  and his brother instructed me to come tomorrow at the same time. I nodded. While returning home, thinking of the incident gave me shudder and angered me. I felt betrayed though it wasn’t betrayal actually. That day I decided not to join any Taekwondo classes.  
     
    Oh Come on !!!! You don't have to feel sad, I am laughing out loud here...... :D 

Thanks for the Advice





 One thing which is closely associated with Indians is their habit of giving stupid suggestions and advice though not always stupid, most of the time which are unsought too.  Nonetheless, we sometimes go to our friends to get some advice on something or other.  In my lifetime I have also had asked my friends for some advice many times, despite of the fact that the matters on which I have had sought advice they were no better than me.  I have also given many advices to my friends.  Following up on those advices have lend us all in embarrassments.  Let’s see how:

When I acted on my friend’s advice 

  Some 15 years ago when I was still in primary school, one thing common with me and two of my friends was our peculiar routine; we used to run fast without stopping until we were ahead of everyone of our school mates.  In just a matter of 20 minutes  we would reach our homes which usually took 40 minutes for others. One of them was fastest among us who also was the skinniest one .  When I asked about the reason of his being the fastest one, “I don’t eat Jalebis with Milk” came the reply. I was stupid enough to believe.

                Once, following on our daily routine, after we bade goodbye to the fastest one as he had the closest destination, two of us were on our way home when I felt cramping in my stomach. I told my friend about it.  We chose the less crowded way to get back home.  I shouted “please do something” and he was trying hard to control his laughter. I was aware of the fact that I was seeking advice from a friend who poops thrice a week in his pants, I have heard her scolding him many times while washing his shit-smeared pants but that time it didn’t come to my mind besides I had no other choice. I was really tensed giving frequently changing expressions trying hard to hold it He advices me to jump high and lift my legs high one by one and when I followed his advice it aggravated the situation further then I felt a sharp pain and shouted   SHIT!!!! and like the obedient pupil it came oozing out in my pants.  I felt relieved but embarrassed too.  The prospect of being sighted in this situation by someone known made me feel like crying. I ran to my home and the poop got rolled down my pants. I lived in the uppermost floor of four storey building and in ground floor one of our relative lived. They saw me coming and before they could say anything I started crying out loud saying “I’ve pooped my pants”. What happened thereafter I don’t remember but the embarrassment I can’t forget. 

When My friend acted on my advice

           This incident is the recent one when I visited my friend he had this severe itching in the part under his leg and around that area. I suggested him to go to a doctor before it gets worse. He asked what should I say to doctor about where the itching is. I told him to say that itching is in ‘vaginal parts’. At first he laughed but later I convinced him by giving the example that like the pocket on men’s shirt is called breast-pocket likewise the area is called ‘Vaginal part’. He was convinced and the next day he visited a lady doctor along with his mother.  When he told about the itching in vaginal part the doctor got angry and scolded “Are you a girl? Don’t you know vagina is only found in women”? And he couldn’t say anything apart from giving an embarrassed smile. When he met me the next day and narrated the incident I laughed my heart out.


     Next time you have to seek advice of your friends think over it before acting on it J

The prisoner of conscience: The Iron Lady

                 
Agonies which she is enduring gloriously
             A shudder goes through all over my body when I try to walk in the shoes of ‘the iron lady’ of India, a woman who hasn’t taken a meal voluntarily since last 13 years, government had to force-feed her and charge her with attempt to commit suicide.  It forces us to wonder how a law could be so draconian that it can make her spent over 13 years of her crucial life in hunger strike.  How could giving few additional rights to Army make someone fast unto death, it could not, unless these same rights can make armed forces kill innocent civilians, rape someone and never get prosecuted and if some of that have occurred right in front of your eyes than it makes less hard to imagine why Irom Sharmila Chanu has been on fast since last 13 years to repeal the AFSPA.
       
                      It all started on November 2, 2000 when armed forces killed 10 innocent civilians, including 62 year old lady and 18 year old girl (a national bravery award winner), who were waiting for a bus in Malon, a town close to the capital city of Imphal. The matter was brought to court and the other party (Assam Rifles) claimed that insurgents had attempted to bomb the paramilitary convoy and the civilians died in cross firing. Lives were wasted but no one was brought to justice.  It’s hard to imagine the agonies she must have went through all these years, separated from her family and close ones and spending most of the time in the hospitals with a nasogastric intubation inserted through her nose.  No wonder why her supporters have given her the name ‘Iron-lady’. 

           I don’t know how righteous her cause is but the pain she has endured to bring peace to her hill-state is incredible. The government has its reasons to support the act and she has other reasons to fight against the act but one thing of which I am sure that she deserves far more attention and praise than what she is getting because her intentions are quite righteous.  Had it been other developed countries like some European countries, she would have gathered a huge support but our countries’ youths are more obsessed with Bollywood or Hollywood celebrities and most of who would never have done any heroic activities in their lives apart from giving donations here and there.

        Her news has travelled far and wide which brought attention of many international organizations yet she is facing apathy from her own country’s citizens.  My aim to write article about her was to bring attention of people to her cause because it deserved contemplation of general people. Her heroics need to be spread far and wide and most importantly the state finds its peace for which she is fighting for.  I would appeal to my friends and fellow citizens that come out from this hibernation of not standing for a cause or at least give her moral support so that peace could be brought not just for the hill state but for the country. Come out from obsession of reel heroes and follow real heroes who are suffering for us so that we could live in peace. They are  the ones who are fighting to make this world a better place not the actors who are getting paid in millions.

       
Kudos to the iron lady!!!!

Autowala’s Menace

'Beware of the Autowallas'
        Recently I read news which was making a buzz in social media which was about the auto raid, conducted in Bangalore by 700 cops in plain clothes which resulted in fine of over 3000 auto drivers and seizure of 400 autos. Since I have been their victim too, I also felt glad. I extend my support and appreciation for this initiative which should also be replicated by other cities too especially Delhi and Hyderabad. I have had my share of pain whenever I had to catch an auto. Not all experiences were bad but most of them were. I have first-hand experience of this auto menace in different cities which I want to share with you all. Let me share my experience with autowallas city by city.

The Rude ones at Delhi

The autowallas here are the rudest among other cities of this country. If you want to experience it you just need to start bargaining. ‘Customer is King’ do not applies here with auto drivers here they are king and you are at the mercy of them. At nights you are at more pathetic situation. Whether you are Rich or poor, they do not hesitate in looting passengers by overcharging. There are many incidents where they have robbed the passengers and killed them too. If you are fortunate here you might find some good ones too who charge by meters and are well behaved. From what I have experienced so far I will rate them 4 in the scale of 10.

The greedy ones at hyderabad

Well-spoken with Hyderabadi accent, only one thing that wasn’t good about them is their greed (overcharging). They will compete with other autowalas to take you to your destination. There was hardly any driver who refused to go. During my five days stay I was only once charged by meter, most of the time we had to settle the price before hiring. That’s the thing which made my ‘Hyderabadi Biryani’ little bitter, only little.

 The Worst one at Banglore

 This was the most disturbing thing about Banglore. These are the lot I hate most ‘The Bangalorian Autowallas’. Though they are not rude like Delhi’s, but they are the most exorbitant priced, especially when you are hindi-speaking. When I got there I was impressed by their English speaking capability (that’s where I can’t stop being Indian) but little I knew about their ruthlessness. I could not find a single auto driver who will charge me by meter. It was always one and half or more. Once my friends and I ended up giving 500 Rupees to the auto driver and that too in the morning (not night). That’s why the news about auto raid was so gratifying to me.

The best ones at Mumbai

I always wonder why people in Mumbai complain about their autowallas. They should visit Bangalore then they will know how ruthless auto drivers can be. If compared to the autowallas of other metro cities, they are the best ones I have seen.  The thing which impressed me was not only charging by meter but returning every single Rupee which remains with them. First time when I hired an autorikshaw, the meter said 23.45 Rs I gave him 30 Rs and I wasn’t even expecting return of 5 Rs but quite surprised to get 7 Rs in return. I was never overcharged there.


    These are my personal views and experiences, you might have experienced differently. The Bangalore auto raid might not guarantee the complete solution but it will better the situation for sure. These things affect the common man most that is why they should be addressed on priority basis so that we head ‘Towards a better tomorrow’ for everyone.

Narendra Modi; As a victim and beneficiary

Sure my heart goes out to him for being victimized by calling him 'anti-secular and anti-muslim' but not my vote because I still think Kejriwal is better choice this time.
Lok Sabha elections are round the corner and the word which is making a lot of buzz is ‘NaMo’ referred to ‘Narendra Modi’. No one can deny he was the main reason of BJP in winning of the State assembly elections in some of the states except Delhi.  Delhi was riding that time in the ‘Kejriwal’ wave.
 A term ‘politics’ which was earlier associated with evil is now gaining popularity, especially among the youth.  Now the chances are rare that someone will interrupt you with the old saying “would you please stop talking about politics?” I am very curious and inquisitive when it comes to know what others have in their mind besides that I also try to know why it is so.

     In political matters you won’t find everyone very logical, they all seem to be driven by different factors. As for me, I think corruption is the root cause of all other problems and because of this every government department in inefficient, facilities have worsened etc., that is why all other concerns have taken a back seat and you may easily guess whom I would want to vote for this election. I went through many articles and talked with people whoever I met in buses or elsewhere.  Based on which the conclusion I came down were shocking and sound detrimental to the future of this country.    

    
      In present scenario I personally see ‘Narendra Modi’ as a victim and beneficiary both:

MODI AS A VICTIM

Most of the persons would see it or not, especially persons relating to non-BJP parties would find it very hard to believe but I really think that he must be feeling himself victimized by the ‘anti-muslim’ remark because he has never done any act and there are no concrete evidence against him which can prove him as that. Being a ‘Hindutva-vadi’ doesn’t mean he is ‘anti-muslim’. I don’t think he is the best person for the prime minister post but that doesn’t mean that I disrespect him. It’s just Arvind Kejriwal is better person for the post at the moment. I have many muslim friends and when I tried to strike a conversation with them regarding the ‘Narendra Modi’ I was very surprised by their reply. Their reply was way far from logic, they seemed to hate Modi and they were ready to vote anyone except Modi. I was very disappointed with this because they were not the backward or deprived one, they were the prosperous, well-educated and well-travelled persons. If they make their decision this way then what you expect from less educated and deprived section.
        Communal elements should never reach the parliament but a person who is religious should not be branded as communal, atleast not without proper evidence.  I read his blog where he has written that he was shaken to the core by communal riots. He really would have been suffered in pain and agony of accusations upon him which he did not perpetrate.
    I don’t understand why someone don’t brand ‘Farhan Azmi’ (Son of Abu Azmi and husband of Ayesha Takia) for going mum when asked about what he will do for non-Muslims in a news channel when he was making many statements what he will do to Muslims. On what terms he thinks that people of Mubai will vote for him. ‘How dumb of him’! J


MODI AS A BENEFICIARY

Looking at the current scenario, it can easily be concluded that many Muslims are uniting against Modi for the apparent reason which is not logical enough. If they brand Modi as non-secular that what is this activity of theirs is. This will hurt the democracy and the future of India and it surely is unfortunate to see India in this situation despite of the economic and other achievements it has achieved in last two decades. If the 17 %(approx) population unite against him like this then what do they expect their counterparts to do? This will also polarize some Hindu voters too.
  I also can’t deny the fact that many Hindu people too are voting for Modi just because he is a Hindutva-brigadier. I have seen who supported Kejriwal’s campaign earlier turning against him just because he can stop Modi from gaining majority. They only reason for turning them against Kejriwal and in this way they have forgotten all the good works done by him. He has become their enemy now. All issues have forgotten, this election has become battle of religion ‘unfortunately’.


MY TAKE ON MODI  (Excellent administrator)

No wonder he is the strongest candidate. There are some good reasons and some bad reasons too. One good reason is the development which the ‘Gujrat’ state has achieved during his tenure as chief minister and the bad reason is he is gaining momentum because of his proverbial Hindutva. As far as I am concerned I want Arvind Kejriwal to be the prime minister more than I want to see Modi as PM.

(The comment which are made are my personal opinion based on whatever I have observed so far and not intended to accuse any religion in particular)


   My Appeal to you : Must Vote and more importantly your decision should be based on issues not on religion or caste. Jai Hind! Jai Bharat!

That small town in the hills

A Beautiful View of 'That small town in the hills'
There’s a small town in the hills where I was born,
 where you can see the fields of wheat and corn!
Situated in the hills and surrounded by greenery,
you bet this place is full of picturesque scenery!!

Hardships of life there doesn’t affect the humility,
everything they will do not to lessen the credibility!
 No matter how much they suffer anguish and fear,
you will notice in the face it is a smile they wear!!

Living there I too had my share of joy and sorrow,
memories of there I embrace today and tomorrow!
Whether men or women everybody is benevolent,
you are less likely to meet someone so malevolent!!

Prior to my coming out it was a blessing in disguise,
life in big cities appeared as a complete surprise!
Hard to find the compassion content and serenity,
in order to survive you have to sell your dignity!!


Fed up with this life which I’m living in the fast lane,
wasting big portion of my life in buses and trains!
Scorching heat materialistic life and selfishness kills,
 I badly want to return to that small town in the hills!!

Don't let this hypocracy ruin us this time

        Few days ago when I was reading a newspaper in the morning I happened to read an article in the editorial section written by Nidhi Kaith and I can’t tell you how much I coincide with the opinion of her about the ‘Aam Aadmi’.  She believes that Aam Aadmi is divided into two sections; one section is victim of the system and the other one is what we should be wary of; a perfect hypocrite. The latter one is dangerous to the democratic system like India. He idolizes someone who is fighting corruption like Kejriwal or Ashok Khemka but craves to live aristocratic life. He demands equality when he thinks he is victimized by inequality of some sort but also takes pride in being a Hindu, muslim, sikh, etc.

      The worst of hypocrites are our politicians, they seem to oppose tooth and nail the controversy surrounding the person on the opposite party but when similar kind of controversy surrounds their own party person they try to make every possible effort to defend him. Tune on to any news channel to watch discussions or debate on those matters you won’t find any of the party representatives making logical comments. Everywhere you go, anyone you see you will find everyone is divided into party supporters, and there aren’t any issues, no concerns just party support. They are loyal to the extent that they have almost turned blind to their party’s wrongdoings. No matter what their party or the leader is doing or saying they will support them in every case.

    If I had to give award for the emerging hypocrite award, I will give it to media. The same media who made Kejriwal  ‘Apple of  everyone’s eye’ after winning elections now turned against him so aggressively together and was trying hard to  project him as a devil, when he said ‘If he will come to power he will jail every corrupt persons in the media”. Editor of a news channel went to such an extent that he broadcasted an hour long episode, collecting and editing every footage he was able to, doing everything which could be done to malign the image of him. I don’t understand why he took the remark ‘corrupt person in media’ personally and was so agonized in anger that instead of showing ‘what was important at that point of time’ (current news) he used his status to vent out his anger. You guessed it right I am talking about the India news. Now what can we expect from this media.  The same media which agreed to broadcast the edited version of video showing Shazia Ilmi, Kumar Vishwas and other members of AAP party at negative side. Why did they agree to play the edited footage why didn’t they ask for the raw footage and when the truth was found out no one apologized. Don’t they have any responsibility towards society? Aren’t they required to investigate about the authenticity and reliability of the news and evidence they get before broadcasting it to the general public?

      Finally, I am also little disappointed with Kejriwal as well. He looked determined to change the politics and in some ways he has succeeded too some extent. We saw a change in the faces of the opposition; every party was looking for honest candidates in the Delhi assembly elections. But now it seems like Kejriwal is also falling down with his standards which he himself set. Recently we can see him hurling allegations and criticizing, he is still the best choice for us though; one fault cannot surpass the million things which he did right. I would certainly like to see him emphasizing on what good he will do to the society rather than criticizing opposite party members.
  

    Let’s hope this election, we will get rid of our hypocrisy and vote for a better tomorrow for India.

Rising Of A Real Hero

Like the lizard gobbles up a fly,
the politicians has gobbled up our nation..!
                                                                      Why don’t they feel any  shame,
                                                             why can’t they fight this temptation..!!

Then came a man with a vision,
and the looters shouted with indignation..!
But he looked resolute for a change,
and created on millions an impression..!!

He looked as if an epitome of righteousness,
he was certainly an enemy of corruption..!
Determined to change the system,
 to sweep away the roots of corruption..!!

He overcame all the hurdles of his way,
still new non-sense is created by politician..!
        He is the savior of this sinking country,
          no one could shake his determination..!!

Though the common man had a say in democracy ,
I wonder how corruption had become a fashion..!
                                                                                           Now with the wave of change in this new year,
                                                                               He has become CM to save us out of this situation..!!


Yet to conquer many evils of this society,
 yet to save the common man from exploitation..!
                                                                                          Keep the spirit on and keep working your best,
                                                                                 Towards a better tomorrow is headed this nation..!!

It’s not just political party it’s revolution

Can't say anything just a tear drops from the corner of my eyes. After a long battle this win is just the first step towards glorious tomorrow. 
                Elections are over now and AAP has delivered extraordinary results. Nobody thought just one year old party could come up so strongly and uproot the party in power which has been there from almost two hundred years.  People of Delhi have proved that no matter how deep the roots of corrupted, dishonest, communal and looters are grounded; it will take just one broom to sweep them away.  For the first time people had choice for electing an honest party, choosing honest candidates upon whom they could rely on.  Everybody was skeptical whether AAP could make its presence felt to other parties but they had done what no other party could have done. They have created history and brought a new revolution which seemed distant and impossible looking at the past scenarios in India. 

        Parties which came to power have misused the power and resources of this country to their own interest still they came to the power. If we talk taking nation as a whole Congress and BJP were the only players in politics. The ministry was juggling from one to another but people had no other choice. The name politics itself used to bring disgust in mind.  Every honest person who came to change politics was changed by politics. Every faith was lost, every hope was lost but with the advent of Aam Aadmi Party every lost hope and faith was regained.  His way of doing work was way beyond this country’s level. Backing of many known and great personalities made this party stronger.

              One amazing thing which I have realized is that most of the people who are promoting AAP in anyway don’t have any political or personal interest they just want to get rid of all politicians who have defamed politics. There is only one interest associated with them; betterment of this country. Though I always wanted to see these well -deserving people to win but I was still skeptical that AAP could win so many seats.  There’s a reason behind it and for that reason my logical mind was coming to conclusions which wasn’t true.  I have been promoting and supporting Arvind Kejriwal long before he formed political party. Even I liked his practical thinking that without entering into politics it wouldn’t be possible to change it. In buses while travelling, in trains, with fellow students, with friends, with teachers and with everyone I met and got a chance to talk to I directly jumped to politics and emphasized to need to bring his party into the forefront. I was never this much concerned about politics. The same thing is happening with so many people all over India and even Indians all over the world but what made me disappointed was the response I was getting people were giving stupid excuses for not voting him. Some said he is not much experienced in politics. One of my old friend who is also a member of other political party posted a picture in Facebook showing Arvind Ji, Mayawati and Mulayam with caption that vote for them and they will sell your votes to Congress. After the declaration of AAP that he is not going to give or take any support from these corrupt parties that same guy didn’t even reply while I reminded him of that. J

                    I am proved wrong, I thought still most of the people are foolish but I guess I came across only stupid people in buses, classrooms or in any other place whose vote doesn’t count. I feel BJP could
secure so many seats only because people of Delhi were skeptical that AAP couldn’t secure so many seats to form the government but now the people are aware what a broom of aam aadmi could do they are definitely going to vote for AAP in case of reelection.
     Some are suggesting AAP should join hands with BJP and I can guess what is going inside their head. They want change in the politics but they couldn’t give up their attachment with BJP maybe because of communal reasons, if you get what I am saying.

      One thing is clear unlike other politicians, Arvind Kejriwal is man of his words and full of vision. He did what he said, he came up with manifestos in all constituencies. He was the one who was with the general public when they were protesting against in front of Shiela Dikshits house for the inability of making Delhi a safer place for women.  The war is already half won by him as all the parties were fielding candidates with clean image. There is probably less liquor and money distributed this time.  Without it no one could have imagined elections a year ago.


    What a change has come, what a glorious time for democracy, and Delhites have done superb this time. Congratulations to all !!!!!
 
    This is just a beginning …… Aage Aage Dekho Hota Hai Kya (Let’s see what happens next). This is certainly a giant leap towards a better tomorrow for Delhites. Not it’s time for whole India to wake up.

Sensitivity to the Disabled

When no other teacher wants to teach at deaf schools a wealthy foreigner chose to leave behind everything and come to India to teach these deaf students
     Yesterday I had to visit Nehru Place in Delhi to fetch my document from a company office. While returning from there I decided to visit my friend as I had obtained a daily pass for that day for just fifty bucks, which empowered me to catch any DTC bus (except interstate buses) destined to anywhere in Delhi without shedding any more rupees on the ticket. This is a facility which I appreciate very much when I have to visit several place in just one day in this city. I boarded a bus and with me several children all dressed in school uniforms also got on the bus.

           Hearing an odd sound I looked back at them and noticed that they were talking with their hands and making bizarre sounds spasmodically  attracting everybody’s attention in that bus. I looked at their faces which looked innocent but happy, overshadowing the agonies which they might have suffered so far. I looked at the identity card clipped in front of chest-pocket of a student, written a name of special school for deaf boys.  I felt contented for the facilities which they are getting from the government probably free of cost or maybe for a meager amount. They didn’t even bought ticket which means they were carrying pass and that too for a petty amount. Without these facilities they couldn’t have gone to school as they didn’t looked like children from a well off family.

           A guy of my age who was standing beside me smiled to me and said something which was directed to them. May be he was dumb enough to not find out that they were special children without hearing capacity. He thought they were deliberately doing something which was not usual with normal children.  As the crowd grew on bus, the people passing the corridor were blaming those innocents and their satchel for the trouble which they were facing.

 Is their satchel that much big to occupy the whole space in the bus??     
        or
These noisy men and women with big buttocks was the real problem??
         I think the latter one being the big problem for lack of space. Their container sized butts take a large chunk of space where two normal sized people can comfortably stand.  Still, they blame the bags of school students for the mess. Their ass has grown so big because they have maids to do their household chores and they go to park to walk hurriedly  to shed extra kilos and these same people blame the school bags in the crowded metro-trains or buses for the nuisance.

        I was more shocked to see the insensitiveness of the driver for these special students. When one of them went in front to stand near the gate, the driver started to curse him in Haryanavi indifferent to the hurt he was causing to their innocent hearts.  Why can’t these people understand and give respect to others, especially to those persons who need it most.  This insensitiveness is a blot on our culture and most of us blame western culture but looking at these events I feel most of the things in western culture are far more better than ours.


 Do lack of education is the reason for this insensitiveness?? If yes, then why do we need education to teach us the basic manners which we should know from the age we become conscious. There is a need of this kind of sensitivity to build a better future for everyone, to build a better tomorrow for all.
