Thoughts and Cartoons with a Social Message

Attack on Democracy | ABVP goons vs Umar Khalid


twitter-dp-add

It all started with much known “freedom seeker” Umar Khalid ( he wants India to free Kashmir) being invited to give lecture in Ramjas College on the topic “Culture of Protests”.

Seriously ???

Well!! Anyways, then entered the villains.

The ‘goons’ of BJP student union  did not allow this seminar and curbed the ‘right to speak’ (against the nation / in favour of terrorists / separatists ) of poor Mr Khalid who has been charged with sedition last year for raising anti-national slogans in JNU.

Come on !! How come people are supporting such curbing of rights ? Democracy.. man !! This is a free nation (where we could independence literally easy enough to take it for granted). I will do what I feel like as best. I will try to find freedom yet again in this country because there are people who are curbing my rights. 

They are curbing my rights. How ??Wait ! Let me think about it. Give me some time to consult leftists or Sagarika Ghose .

They are not allowing me to speak against the country and against the army ( because of whom I, my family, friends and relatives with similar thoughts of seeking freedom, are sitting safe in the country).

What is this govt and its student wing upto ? How can they not allow pro-terrorists and anti-national slogans and curb our democratic rights ?

After all this is not some Middle-East country where freedom has a real meaning . What is this fake freedom in India ?

And yes !! They who speak against these freedom seekers like Umar Khalid and Kanhaiya Kumar are termed “bhaqts “ . Bhaqts, basically are slaves. Slaves of this nation called India. They do not want freedom of speech. Freedom to sit, eat and peacefully shit on  motherland because the army of the nation is protecting their “rights”.

And yes now new heroes are coming to raise voice against curbing of rights :

Introducing … daughters and sons of War Martyrs, the ones whom you can trust are supporting the ‘correct people’ because they have nationalism in ‘blood’. They can define and redefine “nationalism”, “democracy” and “freedom” .

Dare you ask why ???  (Arey bhai .. war martyr ke bachche.. by default pro-nation. )

Simple!! They were born to war martyrs.

And yes true democracy means you cannot speak against “freedom seekers” and ” sons and daughters of martyrs” even if they hurt your national sentiments. Period !

Sickular Vs Bhaqt | Making Of Bhaqt ?


sickular-vs-bhaqt-toon11

Since the invasion of Modi on Delhi as the PM the nation seems to be divided into two major clans : Bhaqts and Sickulars. And looks like nobody likes you to stay anywhere between. Be it the Sickulars aka the anti-Modi clan or the Bhaqts aka the pro-Modi clan, none allows you to stay in this political “no clan’s land”.

The sickulars, as the bhaqts have named them, have suddenly started feeling that India needs yet another freedom fight and yet another Gandhi ( reincarnated as Mr Sniff Kejriwal or the new “Red” boy Kanhaiya. Some see Gandhi in Rahul as well).

On the other side, the bhaqts, as the sickulars have named them, feel the Messiah of Bharat, has finally made it to the throne and that now India will become super power in another 3 years or so.

Well!! Everyone has the rights to chose a hero or two. We Indians are no less. We need superheroes as much the entire world needs. So be it !! Choose Modi or Kanhaiya or Kejriwal or even MSG or Salman. Who cares ??

With the Modi govt taking some strange and rarely taken “strikes” before and their debatable outcomes (short term, you may argue ), the sickulars are  getting the breather zone. And being sickular would mean you cannot even doubt about the philosophy that Modi is Hitler. That Modi is killing democracy. He is anti-minority and for sure anti-muslim. He lies about everything. He is the second name to destruction. Muslims and other minorities are being harassed for being so. And yes, the nation has been captured by him and his army of Bhaqts, Senas, Dals and RSS. Also, the note-ban was some moronic step for no reason and/or to help Amabani and Adani wash their black money to white. Surgical strikes on Pakistani land was a self made story by the Messiah and his men.

Will someone tell these guys, the sickulars in particular, that they are yet anther clan like the bhaqts. Like the bhaqts who cannot take any criticism of  Messiah Modi, even the sickulars have closed their eyes and have considered themselves captives of the Messiah seeking freedom for Kashmir, themselves and may be life. 😀 😀 😀

As much one blames Arnab Goswami of talking pro-nation and BJP only should he/she also not blame Barkha Dutt and likes for show-casing Kanhaiya Kumar as a hero and Hardik Patel as rebel ?

The Bhaqts and Sickulars. Please play your clash of clans amongst yourselves and let monkeys eat bananas and dogs bark at strangers. Let some be themselves.

😀

Cartoonist R K Laxman passes away


Renowned Indian Political Cartoonist R K Laxman, the Creator of ‘Common Man’ passes away at the age of 94.  😦

Cartoonist RK Laxman passes away

 

His cartoons spoke on behalf of the ‘common man’ . No politician, no matter, how powerful he/she might have been was ever spared by the eminent cartoonist whose ‘common man’ character became the face of the ‘Aam Admi’ in India.

A fearless critic of politics and politicians in India, who drew his heart out with a neutral point of view. An inspiration, for all political cartoonists in the nation, RK Laxman will always stay around us through his awesome cartoons.

Pak bans terror outfits including JuD & Haqqani Network


Pakistan has decided to ban 10 terror outfits which includes JuD which is led by Hafiz Saeed, alleged mastermind of Mumbai 26/11 attacks & Afghan deadly terror group the Haqqani Network.

After Tehreek-e-Taliban’s leader Mullah Fazlullah (the group which attacked an Army School in Peshawar and killed more than 150, mostly students) has been declared as a ‘Specially Designated Global Terrorist’ by the USA, Pakistan took stern steps to ban terror outfits in the country.

Until recently Pakistan has been constantly defending “Hafiz Saeed” and has always denied taking strict steps against terrorist outfits who frequently attack India. Still it is tough to decide if the deadly Peshawar Army School attack has taught Pakistan its share of lessons.

Its time the world understands terror has no religion.

Charlie Hebdo Attack|Cartoonists Respond back worldwide


French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo faced a ruthless terror attack on January 7th 2015 which killed twelve people, including the editor Stéphane “Charb” Charbonnier, seven other Charlie Hebdo employees, and two national police officers.Three armed men reportedly forced in the offices of the publication and opened fire.

Charbonnier was in the hit list of terrorist outfit Al-Qaeda since long. Known for its cartoons and jokes not only on Islamic leaders and Prophet Muhammad but also on Catholicism and Judaism other than politics and culture, the newspaper, its editor and cartoonists have been attracting controversy since long.

The question is : is religion bigger than humanity ? Is satire and criticism so lethal that it has to be responded back with bloodshed ? Does a critic not give us an opportunity of introspection ? And above all, can guns really win hearts of human beings and its Creator- the Supreme for whom some have self-licensed themselves to kill fellow humans ?

Meanwhile, there has been a strong response from political cartoonists community worldwide against this attack which indicates, may be, guns can scare pencils and brushes but not so much that they will stop drawing. cartoon on charlie hebdo attack, mysay.in, charlie hebdo shooting, Here are links of cartoons against the attack :

Helping with expectation is trade – Thought of the Day


You ‘help’ only when you ‘don’t claim’ or ‘expect any return’. At the most feel content ‘within’. – Jack(ed) Roberts

Help is the fruit within which lies the deadly seeds of ‘expectations’ and ‘claims’ . – Jack(ed) Roberts

Help gives birth to expectations
Expectations give birth to dissatisfaction
Dissatisfaction gives birth to confrontations
Confrontations kill the whole purpose of ‘help

This Dussehra ask yourself


This Dussehra ask yourself.. is Ravana really dead???Did the firework since all these years really kill him inside us ?

Dussehra Cartoon Image of last year

dussehra 2013,ravana cartoon image,ravana funny,mysay.in,

Some feel its NaMo raj which can give India a better present and a great future while some are simply  afraid that if in power he will be provoking communal riots on national level and bring unrest. Some blame Congress for corruption and the Gandhi family while some believe all political leaders are same. Have we ever thought, even we are participant of corruption.Equal partners in crime? From small acts of throwing garbage reluctantly on the streets to paying bribes in Government offices , we have promoted anti-patriotic behaviour and disrespect for our OWN India. This is the time to think , when we throw garbage on the street, we are dirtying India.When we bribe the Govt guys we are giving away the right to question a corrupt businessman or politician of the nation!For the only difference between a corrupt politician and a corrupt commoner is the level of corruption he is allowed to promote.!! 

Jai Hind!!

Like every year, I wish, may the Ravana inside and around us be defeated for a better India and a better world !

Happy Dussehra to all!

Inspiring Job?


We have been reading about the bad conditions of Govt run schools from Mid-Day Meal Mess to collapsing school buildings. Many of them do not have roofs.Many schools are in such bad condition that classes are held outside. Many schools do not even have students yet there are 10s of teachers appointed who are happily drawing their salaries for doing nothing. How smart !!!

But not all Govt school teachers are the same . NDTV’s website, on Teacher’s Day, showcased an article about a teacher,Mr Abdul Mallik, of a Kerela govt school who swims through a river everyday to do his job. It was overwhelming to learn that he is an inspiration for many of his students.With people like Abdul Mallik India has all the hope alive. A true teacher .. A true hero!

For the govt school teachers who believe in ‘Chalta hai’ attitude and do nothing to justify their salaries and pensions,do not worry,even you are inspiring a few…
