So called Adjustment

Image
It is said that Indians are born to adjust. Adjust with the infrastructure, adjust with polluted air, adjust with crowded cities, adjust with corrupted policies and what not. But does this mean we adjust to each and everything? Does this mean we forget who or what we are and just do what others what? From childhood I hated the fact that I took birth as a girl. Since I was kid I saw girls sacrificing their career, life, hobbies all because of others. Being the girl they were given the burden of the family. Women’s were treated as if the whole world is not their shoulder and they don’t have time for themselves as they were too caught with others. I always wanted to be boy not just because they didn’t had the household responsibility on their shoulder but for the only fact that they had freedom to do what they wanted from their life. As I grew up I kept on wondering why such difference is. Why boy can do what they want and girls have to seek permission? I remember I used to fight wit

Religion Hoax!

Who are we all? Indian, Canadian, Hindu, Christian, Jew or just a human being? There are different countries creating its own religion and when you are in country like India, each state creates its own religion. There is so much and there are so many religion that somehow I feel that people forgot what religion is about. Being Hindu, I had few beliefs but as I grown, as I started reading or watch TV, I realise that religion is just a hoax created by human being to discriminate theirselves with another. To believe is also at some point is acceptable in doing what you want to do, but not when it tells you to blindly follow it or force others to do so. Religion doesnt tell you what is right or what is wrong. Also when you do something it's never right or wrong, it is just consequences. A thief takes 10 Rs from you might be wrong from your angle but it can be desperate act by a thief in the need of emergency. You charging customer extra for some more profit is also technically wrong

Book Review: To Kill Mocking-Bird

Kill myth with ‘To kill Mocking-Bird ’ I heard a lot about book ‘To Kill Mocking-Bird’ by Harper Lee especially in American TV shows where school going kids had assignment on this book and I wonder what this book is all about. Next day I go to book store and buy this book. As I started reading, I found it very normal. Story is about 2 siblings, Scout and Jem who lives in Southern town of States with their father Atticus (lawyer) and maid Culpuria. The book talks about their daily life and events took place in town of Maycomb City. The stories go smoothly as Scout and Jem spend their time playing in backyard, go to school, talk to their neighbours or create conspiracy theory about next door boy Arthur Radley aka Boo Radley. The real fun of the book comes when Atticus Finch takes the rape case of black boy Tom Robinson against white girl Mayella Ewell. The book highlights on the fact that during 1960’s when the book was written there was still racism in the town. How skin colour
