These days, my Dear Friends, have been concentrating on writing posts for my Facebook page: For Catholics, accessed through @swamiyesudas.
It has been both my hope and Firm belief that people, Actively taking part in the affairs of life, can Effect Powerful changes.
It is the Apathy and Lethargy of mankind that prevents this action, and results in the proliferation of evil.
On the other side Christians, – I shall limit myself to catholics, as I dislike infringing upon areas not my own, thus – catholics, seem to think that attending ‘mass,’ to use the word they themselves would use, saying ‘book’ prayers, going for pilgrimages, and giving to charity is all there is to it; and the clergy takes pains (!) that the laity remain in this mindset.
Here is a sample of what I write there.
…Do hope You visit that page. …Hearty Regards.
PS: Am not able to type all that well with my left hand. So forgive me if I do not get in touch with You too much.
Just a few days ago, had this adventure. …A Cobra was mating with what Tamilians call a ‘Saarai,’ a non poisonous snake.
[ As WordPress, the one I use, does not allow videos, this comes ‘via’ Facebook! 🙂 ]
https://www.facebook.com/babayesudas/ …Please follow link.
There are two videos in the ‘comments,’ all within a total of 60 seconds or so.
I hope this works!
I got this comment on one of my posts:
Tried my Best to find out who this ‘jp’ is. …mr/mrs/miss jp, the great faceless, hides himself/herself well indeed.
I wrote him this in answer:
“jp, you are faceless; I can’t access your profile wo ‘approving’ your comment, which I do not want.*
The site you yourself hv suggested says: ‘Crime against Humanity is not a myth. It exists elsewhere in the world and India is no exception.’
Are you objecting to the particular photo I hv shared?
I hv ‘Personal’ experience of atrocities against whom your people call the low caste.
I have the Greatest Contempt for people like you.”
*Subsequently, I ‘approved his/her comment and searched again. Could not find his/her site.
Dalit could be taken to mean ‘The Oppressed.’ It is Reality in India (as well as across the world). Nearly 30-40% of Indians are oppressed simply because they are considered of ‘low birth.
The water dispensing ‘vessel’ should not touch the person; or else it wd be ‘contaminated.’
Sure, that is a very Old photo. But have things changed?
The Dalits (alone) will do these kinds of jobs.
(She is cleaning an Old type latrine).
Of the latest, here is what I consider to be heartbreaking.
The man bowing down is THE PRESIDENT OF INDIA. To, starting from bottom, a chief minister (akin to the US prez bowing down to a governor), the home minister of India, and finally on top, to the prime minister of India, who has no qualms in showing what he thinks of him.
Never before has this happened. It has happened ‘this’ time bec our current prez is a Dalit.
Of again the latest, and on a Most personal level, a Dalit (catholic) priest I know has gone into Depression bec of the way he has been treated by some of his (supposedly) high caste parishioners. Let me repeat, this in the catholic church. Perhaps my anger against church authorities will be more understandable now.
Untouchability continues to be a Bane in India; and the Oppressors are using Every means possible to Intimidate, and to try to Justify what they are doing.
At present I have 6 Cats (including Kittens). One, a Lovely, Friendly, and my Favourite one, has disappeared, most probably killed and eaten by some locals, for whom it is a common practice for Free meat. Very Sad, and all that.
Coming to today’s topic, this Orange Friend of mine and the Hero of this little story, is an Oldie, having difficulties even in chewing.
This little fellow has to be fed separately.
( Forgets platters and things; if given on those, they will sportingly overturn them and eat off the ground. Must be having stomachs lined not with the proverbial cast iron, but with Titanium, these Indian Cats! )
To come back, Why do I have to feed him by himself? He is quite a Big fellow!
If other Cats/Kittens come near his food, he moves off!
In the beginnings, when the Kittens were not there, he having added himself to our group, – I thought the reason for his moving off might be to avoid fights; he being quite old and all that.
But he moved off and made way even for month old Kittens!
Was/Is he doing that to make food available for the latter generations?
Your thoughts would be appreciated!
