The Faceless Terrorism of New India

*******

I got this comment on one of my posts:

jp

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.

Some images:

The water dispensing ‘vessel’ should not touch the person; or else it wd be ‘contaminated.’

drinking w

Sure, that is a very Old photo. But have things changed?

The Dalits (alone) will do these kinds of jobs.

Manju has to scrape out the cave, and gather up its repulsive contents

(She is cleaning an Old type latrine).

Of the latest, here is what I consider to be heartbreaking.

000 prez

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.

Why The Batman Who Laughs Is Scarier Than The Joker

*******

A good presentation. Yet! 🙂

For me, being Terrifying is Not Appreciable.

A character/person, who loves to destroy, I would not even be afraid of him. I would look down on him.

If the Batman who laughs is Chaos in its purest form, then Minus points to him.

Yet it is True that those who stand for Good, want to Do Good, Are Weak and Soft.

Who asks them to be so?

Thus finally, A Hero who can Laugh at Adversity IS Awesome.

And let US become that.

To Hunger and Thirst for Justice

Excellent thoughts from my Dear Anna!

…But, as I wrote to her in the comments,

Unfortunately, the justice system is made up not only of judges, but attorneys too. …At least in my country, India, I find these latter just aiding and abetting Injustice; Most of them, anyway.

Thanks to Anna for reminding that those of us who hunger and thirst for Justice, on fire for Justice, are Chosen, and Blest!

A Lawyer's Prayers

The Beatitudes are a set of teachings the Lord delivered in the Sermon on the Mount. Eight times the Lord cited people viewed by the world as afflicted, and proclaimed them instead blessed. There could be no better illustration that God’s ways are higher than the world’s, and His thoughts higher than our own (Is. 55: 9).

The eight are with us still. They are the poor in spirit, those who mourn, the meek, the merciful, the pure in heart, the peacemakers, the persecuted, and finally those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (Matt. 5: 3-12).

All but the last of these give an impression of calm, gentleness, and resignation. Those of us who hunger and thirst after righteousness – attorneys, in particular – are not meek and mild. We are angry. That anger drives us. We are tormented by the injustice of the world; disconsolate that we can do so little, but determined to do all we can.

What I learned from Children

*******
I don’t think this needs words of Introduction. Maybe, ‘Forgotten Gems?’ 🙂

I would define CHILDREN as the happiest creatures in the world. Oh, don’t you just envy their enthusiasm and high-spirits!

happy children

In my pondering, I realize that there are really some great things that we can learn from them- the actual simple reasons why they are always happy.

Here we go…

#1: Children love unconditionally.

They don’t have any hidden motives or agenda. They don’t say “I love you IF you are…”, or “I love you WHEN you…”…they just simply love for the mere fact of loving someone.

I remember one time when my daughter, Gaby told me that she loves me. I asked her why and I was astonished with her response: “Because I am happy with you.”My heart just melts with joy every time I remember that.

#2: Children apologize and forgive easily.

Unlike adults, children don’t hold grudges. They get angry and fight, but they make up easily and then forget…

Why We’re Asking You To Help Our Momma. Meet Our Momma, Judi.

*******

It is Very hard to give a ‘Like’ for a post by a person suffering from Cancer and the Circumstances of life. Yet I gave the like because of the Courage, and the Sheer Humanity that shines through Judi’s post, and the Love they Children have for their Mother.

As a person of Very, Very constrained means, it is not possible for me to help out Judy by way of Money. Hence I have decided to Re-blog this post trusting that Good souls who Can help will see this and Help out.

Blessings and Love, one and all.
