Nationalism Vs Anti Nationalism

Nationalism Vs Anti Nationalism

Disclaimer – These are purely my thoughts and I strongly believe on them. Yours may differ and again, I may or may not agree with your views. So, surge ahead with caution.

Exactly, one year ago.

Jawaharlal National University or JNU which is in Delhi witnessed something new. Some slogans were raised which were about Kashmir’s independence and Afzal Guru’s conviction. Slogans like “Bharat tere tukde honge”, “Tum jitney afzal maroge, har ghar se afzal niklega” and likewise were raised.

Kanhaiya Kumar and Umar Khalid were booked under anti national charges among another one. They are out on bail.

I mentioned about these two only because they hogged limelight the most.

Let me clear out the matter for those unaware of these two things.

First, Jammu and Kashmir was merged into India but with some special acts which granted some extra powers to the state. The ruler of Jammu and Kashmir accepted the accession to India. So, no one should even think of freedom from India but even then, the protest for so called freedom from India has kept on going since 1947. Such freedom protests aren’t held in any part of Jammu or its districts but only in Kashmir. Jammu is about 300 km away from Kashmir by road. So, why isn’t anyone from Jammu vouching for freedom from India? Why is it that only people from Kashmir want freedom?

Second, Afzal guru was convicted for 2001 Parliament attack and thus, was given death sentence by the court after years of trials. He was executed by hanging. So, one thing is clear that he is a terrorist in all ways possible. There’s nothing to debate on it.

The same thing has happened this year also, although some slogans were different and place was changed. The place now was Ramjas College that’s in Delhi. This time, the slogans were like “Kashmir maange azadi”, “Bastar maange azadi”.

The basic premise of why this happened is because Umar Khalid, yes the same Umar Khalid that was in the JNU row last year, was invited for a speech. SERIOUSLY.

Bastar is a naxalite Maoist area while Kashmir is a terrorism prone area.

Because of these slogans, clash took place between ABVP and AISI where both are now accusing each other of provoking violence.

There are videos on YouTube about the clashes although I don’t vouch for their authenticity or align with them.

I AM AGAINST ANY TYPE OF VIOLENCE AND CONDEMN IT.

Violence shouldn’t happen at any cost.

In between all this, a girl out of the blue named “Gurmehar Kaur” came forward with a video against the violence that happened and mostly accusing ABVP. She is the daughter of a Kargil martyr. One of the placards that she held in the video had written on it “Pakistan didn’t kill my dad. War did”.

Now, the thing is that India hasn’t ever initiated a war in its history and it’s known to all. So, even though the war did kill her dad, it was the Pakistan which initiated the war and therefore, Pakistan is the sole reason for her dad’s death.

In a way, she is questioning her father’s martyrdom and all those who died for the country in Kargil war because according to her, the war’s the reason.

Gurmehar Kaur is also supporting the protests by AISI. It’s the same AISI which agitated over the cancellation of seminar by Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid.

Virender Sehwag took a dig at her these words and Randeep Hooda supported him but they were attacked on twitter for this.

Also, Gurmehar Kaur stated that she got threats of rape from ABVP.

I AM ONCE AGAIN AGAINST THIS. THOSE WHO THREATENED HER WITH RAPE AREN’T NATIONALISTS.

Points to be noted from the above happenings are –

  • IT TAKES TWO TO MAKE A ROW.

Had Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid not been invited for a speech in seminar, no protests would have happened at all and everything would have gone peacefully.

  • FREEDOM OF SPEECH DOESN’T GIVE YOU THE AUTHORITY TO SPEAK AGAINST YOUR MOTHERLAND.

There’s a line between Freedom of Speech and Speaking against the country. You breach that line and you will be condemned. At no cost, raising slogans in favour of a terrorist or for a state’s independence from the country come under freedom of speech.

  • EVERYONE HAS GOT FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND NOT JUST A PARTICULAR GENDER, CASTE OR SECTION OF SOCIETY.

If Gurmehar Kaur using freedom of speech kept her views, Virender Sehwag and Randeep Hooda too, are free to keep their views. If they get opposed for their views, then even Gurmehar’s views can be opposed.

Most of the media channels have shifted their focus to only the rape threats and the violent clash. The main topic has taken a back seat.

Why do students raise such slogans at the first place?

Why is “Freedom of Speech” misused?

If you term raising Kashmir’s independence’s slogans or any anti – national slogan as freedom of speech, then SORRY. I STRONGLY DISAGREE WITH YOU.

WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS?

The Keyboard Warrior 

The Keyboard Warrior 

So, what really is a Keyboard Warrior? 

It’s a person who makes abusive or angry content on Internet while hiding the real identity. 

So, you can call me a keyboard warrior but not in real sense because I do vent out my anger and frustration against various things on Facebook but don’t hide my identity.  

So, if anyone wants to connect with me over Facebook to get an idea of what I post, 

Here’s the link to my profile -> Facebook

Also, I continuously push updates on my Insta profile about the first draft of the story I am working on.

WhatsApp Update 

WhatsApp Update 

So, this post is about the new whatsapp update that brought with itself a drastic change. 

I am talking about it because literally everyone uses whatsapp to remain connected with others. 

The old status option is gone and has made way for the new visual status option. Let me tell you, it’s a blatant rip off of snapchat’s feature. 

Gone are days when you would update a status and keep it as long as you wanted to. 

The new status option now disappears after 24 hours.

Whatsapp’s USP is that it’s a messenger which focuses on texts but that seems to be changing now with more visual content getting into mix. 

For me, this is the most shit update I’ve ever seen for whatsapp. 

WhatsApp is meant to be a texting app. So, why are they just making it complicated.

Snapchat had this… Ok

Insta copied it… Fine and I even use it a lot 

But why bring this to whatsapp… 

What are your views about this new update? 

It’s rolled worldwide now to both Android and Ios users. 

Insider news – The old status feature may come back as “Tagline” feature in future whatsapp releases.

Passionate Moment 

Passionate Moment 

His head rested on her lap as she moved her hands through his hairs. She loved doing so. It gave her peace and happiness to do so. He too enjoyed it as he felt like a small baby whenever she did it. His eyes were closed while her eyes were stuck on his face. 

She smiled looking at his face as she thought of all the memories they had shared till now. She thanked her destiny for introducing him in her life and making him such an important part of her life. Their journey of togetherness wasn’t a smooth sailing one but they never parted their ways. They always fought against whatever came their way and that too together. 

She felt her love for him overflowing as she came closer to his face. He sensed her warm breath over his face and knew what she up to. He kept his eyes closed while she kept looking at his face as she kept getting her face closer to his face. 

As their lips were just a few centimeters apart, she didn’t go ahead to tease him. He couldn’t hold himself back anymore as he got her head a bit up and their lips met. 

They kissed passionately and savoured every bit of each other’s lips. 

Love Over The Phone 

Love Over The Phone 

So, for all those who wanted me to post happy love dovey stories. Here, it is. I am back with love filled and sensual stories. Enjoy. 

​As the thundering started, her sleep got disturbed and she got awake in the middle of the night. She feared the lightning and the sound accompanied with it. With eyes wide open, she looked around in her room that was completely dark. Instead of going to her parents like she would do when younger, she now had someone else to depend on. She reached out for her phone and looked at his whatsapp profile picture. The last seen was some 2 hours ago. The fear was growing on her and she had to do something. She didn’t want to call him and disturb his sleep but suddenly, his call came. She was shocked to see that he was calling her. She picked up the call. 

“My baby’s scared, isn’t it?” he asked in sleepy tone 

“Yes, I am but weren’t you sleeping?’ she whispered 

“I know that my baby fears thunder and lightning na. That’s why I called you.” he answered 

She smiled at the care he was showing. He blowed a kiss through the phone and she blushed. He was trying to make her comfortable. 

“Stop doing that and by the way, I never thought you sounded so sexy in a sleepy voice.” she whispered again

This time it was he who blushed. 

“So, what now?” he asked 

“Now you’re going to sleep and nothing else. I’m fine now.” she said 

“But.. ” 

She interrupted him in between. 

“Shhh. Be a good boy and go to sleep now.” 

“Hmm.. Ok.” he sounded low 

“I love you.” she spoke very softly  

He got goosebumps and he took a deep breath. She heard him taking a deep breath.

“Bas han. Let me go now. I love you too. Bye. Good night.” he replied 

“Where are you going now?” she asked 

“Arey, you told me to sleep na. So, I am just obeying like a good boy.” he answered 

“I don’t want you to sleep now.” she said 

“Then?” he asked as he got an idea of what was going to happen next 

She didn’t replied for a few seconds as she felt shy because  she had never been the one to initiate. That night was different though as she decided to be the initiator. 

“Love me right now.” she said sensually enough for him to lose his senses and go for it. 

That night, they made love over phone for the first time and crossed the limits, they hadn’t previously.

Shivaay Title Song 

Shivaay Title Song 

So, I have listened to this song some 100 times maybe and I am yet to get bored by this song. This is a modern day song about Shiva The God which describes him. The music is really catchy but it’s the lyrics that sets it apart as the best song of 2016(for me). 

I am not talking about the movie here but just the song. 

The song has been sung by Mithoon, Mohit Chauhan, Sukhwinder singh, Megha Sriram Dalton, Anurag. 

The main part of the song is Rap which has been sung by Badshah.

There had been news that this song took over 1 year to write down and that does shows up. 

I have given below line by line description of the lyrics. 

Lyrics translation credits – Krazy lyrics

​Aag bahe teri rag mein 

Tujhsa kahaan koi jag mein 

Hai waqt ka tu hi toh pehla pehar 

Tu aankh jo khole toh dhaaye kehar 

Fire flows in your veins 

There is none like you in this world 

You are the first moment of time (Pehar is a traditional unit of time used in India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh. One pehar nominally equals three hours, and there are eight pehars in a day.) 

When you open your eye, you cause destruction (The last line is an allusion to third eye of the God Shiva. It is present on Shiva’s forehead, mostly it is closed.Whosoever is unlucky enough to be viewed by this third eye is destroyed on the spot. Read more about it here.) 

Toh bolo Har har har 

Say, everyone! Toh bolo Har har har 

Na Aadi na anth hai uska 

Woh sabka na inka unka 

Wohi hai maala wohi hai manka 

Mast malang woh apni dhun ka 

He has no beginning or end 

He is for everyone, not just a single person 

He is the garland as well as the beads in it 

He is carefree and happy in his own tune 

Jantar mantar tantar gyaani 

Hai sarvagya swabhimaani 

Mrityunjay hai mahavinaashi 

Omkaar hai isi ki vaani 

He knows all about talismans, magical chants and magical texts 

He is all knowing(omniscient) and self respecting 

He is the conqueror of death and the great destroyer 

His language is Omkaar (The sound of the sacred syllable Om) 

Isi ki Isi ki Isi ki vaani 

Isi ki Isi ki Isi ki vaani 

Bhaang dhatoora bel ka patta 

Teeno lok isi ki satta 

Vish pee kar bhi adag amar hai 

Mahadev har har hai japta 

Bhang, datura, leaves of Aegle marmelos tree (These tree leaves are offered to Lord Shiva.) (Bhaang is an edible preparation of cannabis. It is often given as sacrament to the devotees of Lord Shiva.) 

He has power over all the three words (earth, heaven and hell) He is steady and immortal even after drinking poison (Lord Shiva drank posion during the churning of the ocean by Devas and Asuras) 

Mahadev (Lord of Lords) chants ‘Everyone’! 

Wohi shunya vahi ikaai 

Wohi shunya vahi ikaai 

Wohi shunya vahi ikaai 

Jiske bheetar basa Shivaay 

He is zero(0) as well as one (1), 

He in whom resides Shivaay(God Shiv) 

Aghoranna paro mantra 

Nasti tatvam guro param 

The very name of Aghor (Shiva, or the one who has attained the state of Aghor) is a mantra that is above all other mantras. There is nothing higher to be known than the real nature of the Guru (spiritual teacher) 
Nagendra haraya trilochanaya 

Basmanga ragaya maheshwaraya 

Nithyaya shudhaya digambaraya 

Tasmai nakaraya namashivaya

My salutations to the letter “Na” , which is Shiva, Who wears as garland the king of snakes. Who has three eyes, Who wears ash all over Him, Who is the greatest Lord, Who is forever, Who is the cleanest, 

And who wears the directions themselves as dress 

Aankh moond kar dekh raha hai 

Saath samay ke khel raha hai 

Mahadev maha ekaaki Jiske liye jagat hai jhaanki 

He(Shiv) is watching with closed eyes (eyes closed in meditaion) 

He is playing with time 

The God of Gods is the loneliest 

For him the world is a mere exhibit 

Jata mein Ganga, chaand mukut hai 

Saumya kabhi kabhi bada vikat hai 

Aag se janma hai kailashi 

Shakti jiski daras ki pyaasi 

He has the river Ganges tied in his hair, his crown is the moon 

Sometimes he is gentle, sometimes he is dreadful 

This Kailashi(one who lives in Kailash) is born from fire Goddess Shakti longs to see him 

Hai pyaasi Haan pyaasi 

Ram bhi uska ravan uska 

Jeevan uska maran bhi uska 

Tandav hai aur dhayan bhi woh hai 

Agyaani ka gyaan bhi woh hai 

Ram as well as Raavan belong to him 

Life as well as death belong to him 

He is chaos as well as meditation 

He is knowledge for the ignorant 

Aankh teesri jab yeh khole 

Hile dhara aur swarg bhi doley 

Goonj uthe har disha kshitij mein 

Naam usi ka Bam Bam Bhole 

When Lord Shiva opens his third eye, This world as well as the heaven shakes 

His name echoes in every direction and on the horizon Bam Bam Bhole (The first letter of the first word of the Ramayan is ‘Ba’. 

The last letter of the last word is ‘Ma’. Between Ba and Ma is the entire Ramayan, which is in praise of Shiva’s favorite deity, Vishnu in the form of Ram. Bhole means ‘simple’. Shiva’s life is simple.) 

Wohi shunya vahi ikaay 

Wohi shunya vahi ikaay 

Wohi shunya vahi ikaay 

Jiske bheetar basa Shivaay 

Toh bolo Har har har 

Ja ja Kailash Ja kar vinaash

Ja ja Kailash Ja kar vinaash

Go to Kailash (Mount Kailash is where Lord Shiva lives) 

Go and destroy 

Toh bolo Har har har 

Ja ja Kailash 

Ja kar vinaash 

Ja ja Kailash 

Ja kar vinaash 

Yaksha swarupaya jatta dharaya 

Pinaka hasthathaya sanathanaya 

Divyaya devaaya digambaraya 

Tasmai yakaraya namashivaya 

My salutations to the letter “Ya” , which is Shiva, 

Who takes the form of Yaksha, 

Who has a tufted hair, 

Who is armed with spear, 

Who is forever filled with peace, 

Who is godly, 

Who is the great God, 

And who wears the directions themselves as dress.
