How have you guys been? I know, feels like someone just got off from the sleep :-). I believe all is well with you guys. I have been really busy since last 8 months, I am in a process to start my business – will keep you guys posted once on…. and have also started taking French Classes – “wanna-be a pro” :-).
Anyways, I don’t know from where I should start – since this is quite a sensitive topic, I am out of words but I wanted to let it out so…. here it goes.
——————————– BASED ON A TRUE STORY——————————-
Lived next to this guy named “Javed Ali” for a long time, young chap with good-looks and ambitious. He wanted to grow in his life and become successful just like we all want to.
Like me, he wanted to live in a world where there’s peace and love among people, where people cared for each other and would vow to take care of everyone… but to his utter dismay – it remained a dream.
Since he was a muslim, he was always criticized by the people of other faith, esp. because he was in India, he was not considered as first class citizen. He would be always bullied by his friends, they’d mock him and his faith etc. It happened to his few Hindu friends as well, they weren’t liked by the muslims.
One night, we had a long conversation and he told me these:
I am a muslim – where should I go? I am not accepted in India because I am not a Hindu. I cannot go to Pakistan, because I don’t belong there. They’d kill me cause I am a Shia muslim; maybe I can go to the West but there’s racism out there, they don’t want a brown man stealing their jobs. Where should I go, Africa – they have enough of their people living in poverty, what will I find there? They would probably kill me.
I cannot live in the Mid-East since there’s War out there…. Where should I go? Every place on the earth has disowned me.
I couldn’t take it anymore and I bid adieu – that whole night I couldn’t help but to wonder and think, is this world really bad? What times are we living in? People aren’t accepting others just the way they are –
How I wish, there will be a place someday on earth, where we will love each other, that we wouldn’t live without helping our fellow human kind and other beings…
