Indian Army in Kashmir Crisis

Ever Since I was born I have been told to be afraid of a state of India, Jammu and Kashmir. The Muslims of India are a part of minority and everybody says Hindus are majority. I have been having no hatred for any religion, I have no problems with others until they are causing any trouble in my way, thoughts and work which are also supposed to be harmless for others. India is a democratic country. Being weak in history and due to lack of enthusiasm in gathering information on any current hot topic(specially political, social etc) of our country I try to ask myself or others on what I see or hear and try to find the best possible answer by any means. Nevertheless discriminating ideas can converge into some favourable or non favourable conclusions. I cannot conclude much on any national or international issue which is currently buzzing in the market or historically had buzzed a lot because I lack information as I had said. But I can bring up some general queries or concern on some issues which we should be able to discuss with our common sense or the power of logical thinking.
I do not know why Pakistan is a Muslim country and I have heard that Hindus have been having a very tough situation out there.  I am born and brought up in Calcutta. Fortunately for me I am an Indian and then a Calcuttan. I have no political interest or I am not actively connected to any ancillary services of any social welfare organization. Only some occasional help for the needy is all I do for my satisfaction. I am passionate about my country and passionate about the ill wishers of India as well. Passion differs by its act though. It is heard and experienced that even in the heart of Calcutta one should restrain himself or herself from showing love and support for India. And one has to tolerate people talking against India and vehemently disrespecting her as well. I don’t know why in every such case it happens to be related with the same category of people. Whether they are causing any good or not any anti Indian activity is led by them only. Even in such cases police remains as mere audience. Many movies show what kind of oath they take while being absorbed in the police force. Again being lack of information may be I don’t know what is meant by devoted to our constitution.
Now recently I can witness that some educated Bengali Indians are also trying to prove our Indian Army is wrong. Being from West Bengal we also have a stretch of international border sharing with Bangladesh. Here BSF keeps patrolling the border. May be the minors are really minors here. I ask those people who is recently supporting the Kashmiris, why here in West Bengal there is no such independence movement, and if such movement starts here what kind of behaviour should we expect from our government?
Firstly there was only India, no Pakistan or Bangladesh. I am thankful to our ex and late prime minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi that she had helped making an Independent country Bangladesh. If we were to still be the neighbour of East Pakistan, may be the so called minorities would start crying for the independence of West Bengal. I am to see what those educated Bengali Indians would have to say then.
Now I come to the Kashmir issue. We that is our government and equivalently our army have had enough. The kashmiris are getting fooled by Pakistan everyday by some religious silly brain washes,and they are showcasing those by shouting against India. Some of them have even got the audacity to put on pakistani flag on the Indian soil. Social networks say they  go to schools, so they are educated, they are not uneducated atleast. Our house maid is totally uneducated, can’t even dial a number. Once I tried to inject some anti Indian thoughts into her mind but I proudly failed to do so. Because she knows that she is an Indian and she will die an Indian, she proudly cheers for India. So I ask the intelligent people who is raising their voice for the kashmiris, why don’t Indian army need to shoot rubber bullets to us except the Kashmiris? We are also sharing border with a brother of Pakistan. But as I am reading or hearing from  various sources that Indian army is torturing the Kashmiris, even the teenagers are not being spared. Why Indian Army is doing this only in Kashmir? What should they do when people staying in India raising voice against India? Should they mollify the people and proudly let Kashmir get out of India? Boys aged twelve-thirteen are even shouting against India. They want independence? Are we fool? They want to be attached with Pakistan. And there are severe religious brain washes. Some of the kind hearted Indians or may be Pakistanis are dragging the Indian celebrities like Shahrukh Khan, Amitabh Bacchan by photoshopping their faces as wounded by rubber bullets and saying how would they feel. This shows their literacy level. Why would in dreams Indian army shoot at them with rubber bullets? That is what I have been asking, why don’t our army need to shoot at us except the kashmiris?
Why did I never get brain washed in the name of lord shiva ,in the name of durga? But they do get, every where in this country. As our country has ‘minorities’ and the minors are terrifying and are harming our land, Indian Army can’t help but help our land.
I know something, that for them we can smile and wander freely in our streets. About 8 to 9 years ago in Park Circus, Kolkata, a hindu-muslim riot kind of scene had arisen. As usual police was unable to handle the situation. Some uniformed men from Fort William needed minutes to peacefully handle the issue without even talking to anybody. This is just an example.
I am with our army. And I support them to handle strongly any anti Indian activity. May the super power strengthen their mind and bodies.
If anyone feels pity for the Kashmiris and think Indian Army is tyrant, please feel free to go to Kashmir and help them.


Kolkata Lives…3

With the phuchka part is over I am getting so many things in my head about my city. The streets south Calcutta is not so wide actually to run vehicles,but still we manage to do the same. But the inconvenience starts with the footpath,these are supposed to be the path for feet,but these are heavily occupied by the hawkers,like near south city,in gariahat,rashbehari avenue,deshapriyo park,every where one can take his eyes. Not only this,one has to be careful about motorbikes while walking on the footpath. At the time off red signal in traffic many bike owners run their bikes through footpaths. Now before the vote of legislative assembly  we are experiencing some renovation of footpaths,roads,streets of various places in kolkata. Thanks to the vote 🙂
And another thing is wall writing,I am not talking about the Facebook wall,I am talking about the brick wall of streets and some houses too,various political parties give their advertisement to have vote,this is disgusting.and after vote dramatically they just white wash some wall writings,and by this they are spoiling the looks of the city! But Kolkata is a very good and convenient city,transportation is very cheap here, shops for everything,just everything are just there where one wants those to be. And infact you do not have to have a car for going to office,because buses and autorickshaws are too much in number,that you don’t have to wait for these,and in every route there is several buses available.
While walking through the streets of Kolkata one becomes a skilled person very soon,and his reflex action gets enhanced for sure,because he has to be cautious each and every moment for his life 🙂 ,and this is not a joke. So who has the habit of walking in villages or in less populated places he or she should not try a walk on the streets of Kolkata.
As I am saying about the hawkers,they are helpful in many ways,like in central Calcutta e.g. Part street,Esplanade ,there are many hawkers who is getting richer day by day by selling food,like dhosa,nun and ghugni,etc etc. thousnds of people eat from them and some other hawers like who sells mobile cover and such sort of things are useful, but actually for them many nonsense people,like specially young girls of my age,middle aged woman( I am leaving the oldies 🙂 ) stops suddenly guarding the passage to walk for the people who are behind of the them,and they even don’t care whether are bothered by that or not! This feeling is strange!! They even look behind to see who is waiting for them to move!
And some narrow roads are the abode of the rickshaw-wala,they are the kings of those roads and can smash way anyone,and you just have to see you getting smashed….if your are not very much alert!
An other important thing is many dangerous places and things are overlooked and are not handled with care,like they are remains may manhole opened for many days,like no one does notice,thankfully accident doesnot happen very often,because we are not new to Kolkata. But it will get closed if an accident happens or after many months when the corporation will get time!
Another disgusting thing is crow shit,I personally avoid tree shaded roads,because those grey roads looks white beneath the trees 🙂 and one has a high chance to be the target of crow shit! But this is an unavoidable thing.
Central Kolkata is more beautiful than south region but I think,south Kolkata is more citizen friendly than the north or central region! North Kolkata is the heart of kolkata,the main kolkata starts from there,but places there are so dirty! South region is much better than those! But to keep our city clean we the citizens have to be cautious,and for that,we have many things to learn from the foreign cities.
will be continued….

About internal affairs of India,Maoist issue….

Today some places in India are too much affected by Maoists. Places like some parts of West Bengal i.e. Medinipur mostly…may a few more places too. Actually their demand is against the W.B Govt. So W.B Government has never tried for a peaceful meeting but they have always been violent and that means a never solving case. Like throwing oil to put out fire.  On other side Trinomul Congress i trying to win Maoists’ hearts,by delivering speech at core area of Maoists like Lalgarh in Medinipur. On that case Leftfront is trying to stop these movements of Mamata Banerjee,by hitting a trailer at the back of her car..!! So one can understand This is the present situation of West Bengal. This Maoist problem has spread over Jharkhand,Orissa,Bihar,Andhra Pradesh. Now what I think is to handle it with delicacy and care for the sake of stability of India. This is a national issue,whether it is s regional problem or not….issue is national always. As the Mumbai attack in the year of 2008 was a treated as an attack to the nation. We fought against that with no mercy and still fighting tactically non violently. It was a foreign attack to India. It was like the fight of India against outsiders.
In the case of the Maoist issue it is turning to be an internal fight,that is harming India and will always harm. It is not a case to fear or demolishing this terrorism,but it is a case to shame. This is has to be stopped immediately before it spreads over all other parts of India. But it can’t be stopped by fighting and demolishing them,if Indian Govt wants they can do so,but Maoist is Indian terrorist group,who are well below the poverty level,and they are in severe and several problems for which they are fighting to solve to save them. As Govt remains indifferent to their horrible way of living the life,they get hurt. They want the solution,they want literacy,they want to see a better life,they want to see the brighter part of the world…they are immersed in a permanent darkness,which they want to uncover. May be government is realising that or not. If not,then they have to realise it first and fast. And take some fruitful action which will give fruit to their dying trees. They are Indians as we are…but they can’t express themselves as we do. As they are Indians they no one to fight against.
This terrorism has to be stopped by peaceful meeting with them….and everyone has to agree to make this meeting happen. And to try to fulfill their needs will lead this problem to solve. As it is an internal issue we should not fight among us. That will always degrade the unity gradually and that will affect badly to the fate of India. “Unity in the diversity” will only remain as some meaningless words only.
