Religion Hybrids

Hybridization seems to be the future, I mean you won’t find a thing which has not been hybridized yet. To be a little elaborate we have hybrid fruits and vegetables, vehicles, furniture, animals(even bacteria and virus). ‘Duniyan me aisa koi cheez hi nahin bana jiska HYBRID nahin ban sakta!’. BTW, have you heard about Religion Hybrids, doesn’t seem familiar eh? We all know, how Sikhism started, however it has got its own ideologies extracted from Hinduism and Islam. And with all respect Sikhism is a full fledged religion. But my point of reference is about those who are generally converts and yet have not fully overcome the customs of their previous religion.

A Catholic smearing Sindur on her forehead when inquired by me answers ‘we generally do it in our family’. I would like to question that one person who first changed his religion,’Beta dharam badalne ka idea tere dimaag me kisne dala tha?’. I really appreciated the scene in the movie ‘Namaste London’ where Akshay Kumar’s character confronts Upen Patel’s.

I have never been religious in my life, rather my belief on God has been more or less agnostic. But I can’t stand hypocrisy. When you change a life long belief, you just prove your ancestors fools and you simultaneously disprove your existence. Man’s belief on religion has been biased more by circumstances rather than understanding. If in any country a person has changed his/her religion then it would have happened because of some basic necessities. Anybody from an affluent back ground doing this is either a prophet or a religious fool.

The cases of tribals converting to Christianity by missionaries and then brought back to Hinduism by Pundits seem to be absolutely hilarious(Mere samajh me hi nahin ataa kya badalte hain aur kaise badalte hain). But just imagine the day when there would be no Hindu on the earth. Just think, what would be its consequences? Will a person from other religion read Gita, Bhawat, Upanishad? How many people would think about Rama and Krishna’s ideologies, more over what will happen to our literature? They will be extinct just like dinosaurs! How many of us have inter-religion understanding? How many Hindus read the holy Quran and the Bible and vice versa? Time to think, right???

Religion is above all human things, you can leave your body but not your religion. It’s not your old clothes that you change as per your convenience. A religion is irrespective of you getting burnt or buried.

P.S.:The writer bears no offense towards any religion, and every word that has been written in the article is only to exemplify the motive.


The power of biasing

Have you ever felt that you have everything to be successful but still some unknown force is obstructing your path? You might be the jewel in the crown but you still lose out to a jackass!! Well that’s not your fault exactly. What pulls you down here is not what you have been taught to do and you are not doing it, rather the thing you have not learnt from the society. Biasing, it is so called can play a major role in deciding the major goals you want to achieve in your life.

You can use almost everything to bias a person. You just need to know the weakness. OK, let’s try this way! Tell me about some body parts which always need to be pampered. No idea……!!! OK, let’s make it simple……..!!! These are our senses. How many of us would deny that they don’t like appreciation, ears play a major role here. Won’t you like to catch a glimpse of the girl bending 60 degree before you? How many times have you been bowled over by the killing smile that girl gives? Boys also do it effectively!! The list goes on. But the innocents suffer here.

Be it a college or a work place, biasing always creates bitterness among people. Sometimes you feel like cracking one or two heads, but the only option you are left with is your inability to do so. Biasing in colleges creates demotivated students, exaggerated brilliancy and eventually a bad reputation. In work places the situation is not better either. Here the major role player is your locality(and specifically if it is India, where religion comes before productivity.)

I have been frustrated because of the hiring policies of various companies. How does a company go for mass recruitment in some colleges just by looking at the face of the candidates and how the same company becomes so indifferent towards people coming through walk ins? The nexus between certain colleges and companies needs to be broken so that worthy people get in to right places.

The world beneath…..

Albert Einstein had once said that the Universe is expanding. It’s expanding since its creation. After each and every big bang a new world is created, new things happen which we, in our limited scope of mind may not be able to think of. Some scientific thinkers even believe that there exist many other worlds apart from ours. But I believe there are worlds within worlds, unperturbed, undisturbed and without being interfered by any other extraneous force just like the world where I live. It’s been a long day and I really need to come out as night is approaching. Oh….dint I tell you about myself? I, Mr. Khatmal along with my large family live in the world beneath the pillow of a person staying in the room no. F3B of ISME boys’ hostel. He calls himself Prasanna ( you now start wondering, is it really possible for a bed bug to write in such a beautiful manner and that too in English, plz excuse me for all my grammatical mistakes). But you know, living with this fellow has got its advantages.

I have this 18 sq. Ft. estate where I was born, brought up and run all my nocturnal activities today. This is not the only estate I own, as some of my ancestral properties also exist in different floors of this building. Within a very short period of time, I’ve successfully multiplied my species resulting in nightmares for the inmates. They have tried every possible measure to get rid of us, but here we are, undefeated and unbeaten.

Now, the character Prasanna is one of the laziest persons I have ever came across. Frankly speaking, I’m trying to be a little diplomatic while declaring this. In fact I’ve never seen anybody other than him and his roommate. These two fellows compete with each other for being the late riser. And I must say that his roommate always surpasses him. Prasanna has been quite generous with us. Apart from two occasions when he tried to sprinkle some chemical liquid on us, there has been no untoward incident from his side. We enjoy a very harmonious relationship after a series of bilateral talk that continued throughout the winter season. He promised not to disturb us, and our community promised not to draw more than 500 ml. of blood every month. But sometimes I see the bitterness regarding the agreement in his eyes in early mornings when he desperately scratches the rashes created by my family members on his body.

I still remember the day when we had a really bloody battle in my estate. He along with some of his stupid friends tried to sprinkle Khatnil and Kerosene on us. Many of my brave sons and soldiers died a martyr’s death. But somehow I survived. And today what you see is the result of a carefully carved out strategy which forced him to retreat and compromise with us. Today, I see a book on “Strategy Management” on his table after he came to realize that behind every successful venture there is a rock solid strategy. (I hope he doesn’t ask me to teach him this subject). My strategy was to reproduce as quickly as possible, so I chose his cup board as the next best option after his bed. While he was busy with his Khatnil operation, I along with some of my wives crawled through the narrowest path possible to reach his cup board. He could not notice us and that’s the biggest mistake he did. However I have forgiven him after we had this agreement as he has been my only bread and butter…..oops…….sorry blood supplier.
Today, I have my organization which solely works on how to stop humans from attacking us. The newly formed organization has effectively carried out its operations in different floors and I see a bright future ahead.

Tonight, some of my major blood suckers and me are going to visit the room right above F3B. My cousin lives there and he is having some sort of difficulties adjusting with the changing infrastructure (I heard the inmates have taken beds out of their room and have decided to sleep on the floor).
Ok, my troop is ready now and I must leave. See you later.
