WHERE DO I BELONG TO?!

Hello Folks,

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…
Love

Reunion in US

Hello folks!!

How have you guys been?? What are you upto??

I really apologise for not being around for such a long time. I was really occupied with a few errands.

Well, this June I took a 20 days trip to US and gallivanted across 15 states incl(D.C) which is not a state for sure… if you say that in D.C, you are lookin’ for trouble.

Anyways, the trip was fantastic, I really enjoyed my time there and was with my friends; some of the most finest people on earth 🙂

We took a road trip which began in Baltimore, Maryland and onwards to New York. Then we travelled further mid-west covering West Virginia, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri & Kansas. We took a detour in Ohio, we got down in Zanesville and took a motel for a night (Best Western) it was really good.

Btw, I learned how to swim 🙂 Yah… I didn’t know how to swim before… But now I DO!!!

Also, we stopped by to say hi to my Grandpa who is a famous Sitar player from India, who now lives in St.Louis,MO, he is a maverick and dexterous too.

Celebrated 4th of July in Dallas and then I left Dallas on 07th early morning; heard there was shooting goin on there in Dallas, feel sorry for the folks out there.

All in all it was an adventurous trip. The most exciting part of the trip was…..

I met a girl and I fell in love 🙂 Oh god it was so wonderful… I’m planning on visiting her next year and will take a trip to Park city & Heber city, Utah 🙂

 

Love
Alan
