Casteism = Racism

Well, you read it right. Thats what I said. If you believe in castes, you are a fucking racist bigot. I am not against reservations per se. And it pains me to see that there is so much anger and hatred when it comes to the government providing reservations to the backward "castes" and other lower strata of society. And as soon as this is done, you go ahead and say that the UPA government supports casteism. Oh! you unlearned, unknowledgeable Indian - that action of reservation is called Affirmative Action. If you have no fucking idea of what it means, please read about it here. I am reading on this page after a day and I see that its tagged with "This article may not conform to the neutral point of view policy. A Wikipedian has nominated this article to be checked for its neutrality. Discussion of this nomination can be found on the talk page". Comeon, leave these pages alone - they are absolutely neutral.

I see scores and scores of students standing in lines on Brigade road, saying that they are against reservation. The frigging heat and smoke from traffic does not bother them. They are even ready to walk on the "hep" parts of Brigade road with papers stuck on their backs mentioning the same. I am sent stupid forwards (for the record, I hate all forwards) and even SMSs that ask me to stand against reservation. I dont think it necessary. I mean, I have seen so many people that have benefited because of reservation. Ok, the basic principle is great, you agree, but it is being misused by a section of the under-priveleged. Ok, so don't take off the whole damn system, refine it! Make a stand, revise it. In a country where certain castes are even called "untouchables" - god forbid the damned term, they do not even have basic rights. Reservation has changed all that. I know that reservation was supposed to be there for a very short time until the caste system changed. But it still is being used. Why? Its only cause the caste system still prevails.

So change the damned caste system. Do YOU have the balls to stand in the sun and rain, smoke and fog and ask the people of India to turn a blind eye to casteism? Have you ever opposed the idea of having to enter your "caste" every time you have to fill in a government form? Can you do that, you racist bigot?? Then, I will join you in your protests!

I love comments, dont flame me - I will just ignore em. And tell me if my thinking is somehow wrong. Cause I think that the fault lies in the caste system, if that was not there, there will be none of this!. Hell, I could not even have imagined this post.

The Atheist's Prayer

Our brains, which art in our heads, treasured be thy name. Thy reasoning come. Thy best you can do be done on earth as it is. Give us this day new insight to help us resolve conflicts and ease pain. And lead us not into supernatural explanations, but deliver us from denial of logic. For thine is the kingdom of reason, and even though thy powers are limited, and you're not always glorious, you are the best evolutionary adaptations we have for helping this earth now and forever and ever. So be it.

Our house in Google....

Searched for our house in Google Maps......have it circled in red below....please dont sue me, Google!!

Dust In the Wind.....

I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind.
Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind

[Now] Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away, and all your money won't another minute buy.

Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind
Dust in the wind, everything is dust in the wind.
