Whats The Meaning Of Life !!!!

Don't let people drive you crazy when you know it's in walking distance.

A childhood filled with memories of friends and guests from all religions. Looks like this is the only way authors choose to prove that the child had a secular upbringing. From lessons on Gandhiji and Nehru in school to this book called "Life of Pi".

Frankly, does it prove anything? Maybe Gandhiji and Nehru were indeed secular. I dont know. But there sure must be better ways to prove that. Isn't it a more complicated and subtle feeling?

Also, it is cool to call yourself "secular" without even caring to check with yourself. TOI, HT, DH and mostly all non-vernac newspapers proudly call themselves "secular". Bah! Probably if you define secularism as anti-Hinduism!! I remember during the Godhra carnage and post-Godhra riots, most newspapers convniently forgot all about the GodhraTa incident itself, which initiated the carnage. Do flip back the pages of history to see how horrid the whole incident was. Turning blind towards the suffering of Hindus (or any other community) and trivializing it, is probably the most absurd attempt at secularism.

The word "secularism" is so abused, that secularism is probably dead by now.

Man!!Finally somebody who thinks straight.I am *sick* and tired of that stupid word.In fact not many ppl know that in the preamble to our constitution the words "socialist,secular were ghusaoed by Indira Gandhi during the emergency;So much for constitutional legitamcy!!

Herman Goering (the Nazi,err.. I might add ) once said "Whenever I hear the word 'culture',I reach for my gun".
The same may said about "secularism".It is nothing but rank hypocrisy perpetuated by cretins borne of the most foetid union of Marx and Macaulay.
