A Quote for life!

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

Who are you?

Reacting to the news saying the attackers in Dhaka attack were well educated & from respected families.

God only knows how many around us are getting brainwashed right now by these radical and cunning groups who are making fun of religions and these fools don't even know what they're getting into. While education should help rationalize their acts, these days more and more educated people are being used by these inhuman & less human groups to get their work done. The ones who proudly act like giving up their own selves, families, friends & lives for a bigger cause are merely fools & puppets in the hands of anti social beings. Sadly, these people from both the groups are present in houses near us, around us and within us. Some hold up the gun, some get into politics, some mock entertainment for us & few get into academics teaching the young generation openly in colleges and universities, what they teach terrorists in remote jungles & hilltops, hiding from the mass. And those who do not fall in any of these groups, take to the social media and still continue motivated heinous acts - spreading terrorism, separatism & anti national thoughts & acts. All these from behind the veil of education, college degrees and professional experiences. The worst thing is that they themselves do not realize what they're doing - they think its great for themselves, their families, their faiths & beliefs, their community and above all, their religions.

The one who is the least knowledgeable on religion is the one who shouts in the loudest of the voices!

Before sharing one more post (or doing anything) triggering hatred, ask yourself what you are doing and if you really are equipped with knowledge & authority to do that. Simply ask - Who am I to do so?

If you get an answer that you should still spread wrath & fear, repeat the above task until you're sure that you are not supposed to do that... All the best!

What's wrong with this guy?

[3/17, 2:56 AM] Tan 💖:
Today, I was talking to a guy, about 26 years old, from UP, working in HP for last 2 years, an engineering graduate, rearing to do MBA, who's all over his office festival, key member of his college groups and arranges outings & events for both office & friends, is very fit - runs in gym continuously for over an hour - and is always ready to help, is polite, humble & obedient to family, friends & employers.

However, when I was talking to him, I found out that he does not know about Bofors issue, India's Nuclear Deal with America, World Wars, Gulf War, Kargil war, America's war in Iraq & Afghanistan & even Saddam Hussein! All that he told me is that Osama is not dead & is still loitering around at some place identified by someone, sometime ago.

He doesn't know who won the World Cup Cricket a couple of years ago. Interest नहीं है. Neither in sports, and obviously nor in politics or history.

He assured me he knows everything about Mahabharat. So I asked, who had 100 sons (to follow up with the real question, who else?) He replied, Draupadi...

That's when I bid him good night and left for a cigarette.

Is this actually the case with our education today? I really felt terrible after talking to him.

Just wanted to share with you guys, because we have spent some time together, learning new things. And I'm so damn sad with this situation. Was this लाखों लोगों में एक लड़का, या फिर there are more like this in this generation? And who represents them? Rahul Gandhi? No wonder!!
