Live and Let Live

Live and let live. This should be the right mantra for the current scenario in India. Intolerance has reached its peak in our country. All our news channels and the media stands as a witness to the above statement.                         IMG-20180216-WA0000

        What happened to the Democratic country we were so proud of till a few years back. The word Democracy has lost its meaning in the current situation. People have started to become intolerant to one another and have started to show special interest in the colour of flags, where some prefer orange to anything else, others prefer their green dearest where else some swear by red. The combination of the orange along with the green and white as a medium of peace has lost it’s sheen. Where have we ended up?                            IMG-20180216-WA0005.jpg
What happened to our bygone era, when all our neighbour’s festival was our festival when it was diwali we too fired crackers along with them and sweets were exchanged from here to there,                         IMG-20180216-WA0004.jpg

Christmas meant hanging stars irrespective of being Christian or not, Ramzan meant hot biriyanis from neighbors. Have we lost it all? How beautiful were those days when all could sit together for gatherings irrespective of the religion and there were still common topics to talk about, the children’s progress, the ailing parents health, the career and little gupshups of the neighborhood.                         IMG-20180216-WA0001

                Have we lost our right to speak, right to emote, right to express in this country? A country which has produced great speakers, writers and great leaders. Is it becoming a place where we have to think twice before doing anything or even to speak anything?

                             IMG-20180216-WA0008
Fundamental right to stand up for oneself is being questioned, isn’t it high time we all stood up as one neighborhood, one society, one state and one country against this injustice?                 IMG-20180216-WA0009

When a movie named Padmavati had to fight the whole lot of rascals and ruffians who stood against the movie in the name of a particular community and religion they failed to realise that the more they shout on their rooftop the more the publicity the movie got. The protesters where yelling their throat and burning the public properties without having any idea as to what the movie even contained. Poor director shouted on top of his voice to all the deaf but loud hooligans that there is nothing in the movie which would hurt the sentiments of any community for that matter.                        IMG-20180216-WA0011

If it was the orange that protested then, now the geeen has taken up the task by protesting against a movie from a far end state of India in the name of hurting religious sentiment. A movie which had become an overnight sensation with a wink of a teenage girl in an innocent flirtatious manner caught the attention of the green party and now the whole lot objection is about the song which belongs to a community and religion which is playing in the background when the poor girl winks and the boy goes awestruck and boom. The director of the movie ‘Oru adaar love’ is now on all the channels justifying his movie, the song in question and the whole winking sequence.              IMG-20180216-WA0010.jpg
When did we as citizens of this great country became so intolerant towards such minutest of incidents. When we from being a friendly neighbour became such a boisterous crowd. Isn’t it time that we realised what kind of people we have become in the name of religion, community, and politics.

Is it the same country which boasted of great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, the father of our nation, who taught us to be tolerant, Mother Teresa the saint as she has been honoured now, who taught us to love each other irrespective of cast, colour and creed by doing it herself, Abdul Kalam the great Indian scientist and one of the dearest President of our country, who always encouraged the youth of this country to excel and make a better tomorrow for the nation.                       IMG-20180216-WA0012
Isn’t it, the right time, we have rised above this situation and snap out of the hallucination of this current socio political influence and raise up our voice in unison against any threat or hindrance which destroys the harmony and peace of our country. Isn’t it our duty to make our country famous once again not for the wrong reasons but for being the largest Democratic country.
Live, love, laugh. For who has seen tomorrow? Live our life and let others live their lifes too. And let the young still say “Mera Bharat Mahaan” this time with only one flag the true Indian flag with orange, green and white which stands universally for peace.

Uhmm! What do I say abt myself. Love to read, write, watch tons of movies and loves music. Educated enough to enlighten a few things to a few some who shows the interest to listen. This is me in a nutshell. Will let out little by little, like the cat out of the bag. Ok I think it's time to let out one more passion of mine, which I as much love as writing, and that is cooking. Trying out different new recipies with a slight variation added of mine makes my culinary skills a little adventurous cuisine.

  1. “more they shout on their rooftop the more the publicity the movie got. ”
    This is really a very thoughtful topic and also recent ryan school attacks. this is really intolerence. We have a fear to loose our Indian brotherhood for which Indians were known throughout the country. And can u plz tell me something about the girl I mean for what is she becomming so famous. Even on social media I have seen her pic so much. I actually didn’t got it earlier also but when I saw here then now I want to know why is she so much in the eyes of everyone recently?

    1. Oh! She has got her fame for the stylish wink she does to a boy in her class in response to the stylish raising eyebrow kind of asking what’s up? She is a newbie and the way she.stylishly does an action of taking an imaginary gun kisses the tip and pulls the trigger and aims at his heart with a wink again and.he shows being flat for her. They both are very.cute in that song and does what a typical teenager these days do. But the fanatics found the song which is going on in the background being a particular sect of peoples kind of song being played wrong when this lovey goey things especially the girls wink offensive. To see the scene.just go.to YouTube and type oru adaar love and u can watch the song sequence

    1. That is exactly why we should raise our concerns before it’s too late. When we as a society raise it together it becomes louder and more reasonable. And from all the comments above I understand that most of them agrees.

  3. Wow.. Where was this post hiding..I would say one of the worthiest and true post ever..
    Totally agree with all your words… Specially that “padvavati” incident and “wink girl” hoe our nation had been publicizing these making one as a issue other as sensation. Agar ye kaam agriculture ki thoda sa bi dhiktha toh apne desh ka sab kuch acha ho saktha tha..
