Mumbai Attacks

26th Nov 2008 Wednesday night it started in Mumbai.  Militants started attacking civilians.  The media named it as 9/11 of India.  

The most annoying thing is that most of the troubles in this world are religion based. People are getting killed and injured for no good reason.  The killers are strongly believing that their killings are justifiable though none of the Gods have said that killing of innocent people is justifiable.    As for as I know, all Gods have told people to help each other and not to get involved in bloodshed.

If militants are believing that their killing of innocent people is justifiable, but if none of the Gods have said that killing of innocent people is justifiable, then who really instills such belief in young militants' minds?  Is it not obvious that some elements, for their personal gain, are instilling such beliefs and grooming militants?

Oh, young militants, you are killing and getting killed not for the Godly virtue.  It is for the vested interest of some persons or organizations.  The path of peace is peaceful.  The path of blood is bloody.  Please do drop your arms and turn to peace.

The White Tiger - Aravind Adiga

I just finished Aravind Adiga's Man Booker Prize winning "The White Tiger".   It was an interesting book to read.  The corruption is so real.  Sometimes, I think India has attained Nirvana in corruption.  Hats off to you Adiga, for throwing light on Darkness!
