The day was yesterday. You all might think I was there commenting on your blogs and doing all as I do usually, ..... that was a way of escapism.
what happened was I came online at 2:30 noon yesterday and checked my mail and then went to a famous news site of course, an Indian one. I just typed in "Kandhmal Violence" and an article came up. I scrolled down and went on to read the comments.
As soon as I read the first comment I was in tears. I did not know why they feel like that, they called Christians ..foreigners. I just couldn't take that. Specially a person like me who loves her country so much that she gets tears of happiness in her eyes when the National Anthem is played.
When we go to any foreign country we are called foreigners there and in India also we are called so.
I have often seen when the media covers the Christmas celebrations and so on they show everything as done in Europe. We Indians also have a way to celebrate it.
Many people have wrong conceptions that we kiss right in the church during marriage.
Do come and see a Christian marriage in kerala you would get it.
I don't say that I am against it but I do say why are we criticized of the thing we don't do.
I couldn't sleep yesterday. My dad and mom sat beside my bed and I was so in tears that I couldn't even answer them.
I thought we Indians are the examples of love and brotherhood, but now I feel we are in so much enmity with each other that we don't even hesitate to kill.
The only thing I would like to appeal to all of you is please think when you do something against someone. Please calm down a bit and let your brain act not your heart. Why make a thing like Religion a means of fight. Why to do so?
ps:) this was an honest appeal towards all Indians.
This post's motive is not to raise any communal fight out here in the blogs ville.
Please let me know if any part of my post hurts you.
