Thought For the week - 4

"So far as I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked."

- Mark Twain

Nothing more we need as an explanation, isn’t it? That great country, that most celebrated place on the planet is home to the historical, quintessential, living civilization. History of India is the history of humanity! From the vanaras(apes) of Threthayuga (Rama’s age) to the modern man, India has celebrated everyone; India has benifited from every one too.

India welcomed Islam, housed its most famous monuments, was ruled by its kings, most of them cruel in behaviour. India welcomed Christianity, and was made to be colonised under Christian rulers for centuries. Yet, the local culture was preserved; The country woke up after every of such physical, mental invasions.

The present day India is seeing invasions of Technically adept enemies who have waged a war on her in the name of a religious war (Jehad). Indian woes doesn’t end with the terrorists who are outsiders, but we have an internal terror organisation called Politics, which is breeding terror mongers called politicians who are equipped with good words and which is enough for them to divide us along the religious, and ideological lines.

India will wake up from that too… And when she does, we will see prosperity and peace, not only here, but all over the planet.

This thought is as a respect to that great country called India/Bharata, and also as a protest against the terrorists and politicians who vow to end her. I openly challenge these elements that they can never take the pride away from this extrordinary country.

Jai Hind
