samjhauta in smoke?

its weird that paki terrorists would set bombs off on a train filled with pakistanis, but as this article says, it did happen.....

whats even weirder is that just this saturday while i was getting my car fixed by my paki mechanic, he very prophetically cites a surd joke about....well no prizes for guessing ....trains....

for the ones who want to know what joke that was...here's a summary....

Some surds were planning to catch a train, but after an announcement which informed them that the train was arriving not on platform 3 but platform 2, they were all found dead....

Coincidentally at the same time a surd who was trying to commit suicide by having a train run over him... survived...

On being interviewed later on, the surviving surd happened to mention the punch line of the joke....that the surds who were planning to catch the train, after the announcement, thought that the train was arriving ON the platform and so jumped on the tracks ( where the train eventually runs over them) and the surd who wanted to commit suicide got onto the platform.....

Now this is funny...but this coming from a paki....well, i dont know...i couldnt help being offended...(call me touchy)....a surd joke is a surd joke for us indians....its like having ure very own punching bag....u dont want others using it.....( just like americans get pissed off when a foreigner abuses bush.....bush maybe stupid...but its for americans to say that....)

so i just smiled...and he kinda got the message....started telling me that surds are some of the brainiest ppl around as well....but i couldnt react. ( now thinking about it, i probably over reacted) poor guy...i should have just laughed...

and then the next day....i see this news....blasts on the samjahuta express....

The totally wicked side of me, the side of pure evil....laughs ( the mogambo laugh)...

"why dont u laugh at that paki guy......" ( I feel sick writing this)

I wonder how all of us brownies come together here in the US, the same ones fight back home...somehow i guess most of us have forgotten what the fight was in the first place....in the end what remains are just the hollow idealogies that mean nothing.

************************************************************************************

There was this amazingly interesting article on Time magazine about whether the two-state solution for Israel and Palestine was the completely wrong fight in the first place. If the palestinians never ever fought for the two state solution of wanting a free palestine state but instead fought to become legitimate israeli citizens, eventually israel would have become a majority arab state....again just jewish in idealogy but muslim in reality.....wouldnt this be the same of never having israel in the first place?

************************************************************************************

I guess its all about choosing ure battles. Never allow the idealogy to take precedence over reality. Solutions always exist. In the end its about achieving the ends, not worrying about the means.....

Think.
