Speaking about RELIGIONS & CULTURES, specially with respect to a democratic republic country like ours, these two things always has a impact on the development of the nation directly or indirectly.Each one of us have faith in different thing , we believe in different things we worship different idols and most importantly celebrate different occasions. Well, for good reasons or bad ones, we CLAIM to be a united even after all the difference that i stated above.
Each and every religion celebrates different festivals and have their own reasoning's and stories behind every religious sentiment or belief .
But did anyone notice the magic of the day 11SEPTEMBER2010 . Well i guess we only think of the attack on twin towers . But, did anyone notice this special thing that me and some of my friends did this September 11.
Yes two biggest festivals of our country fall on this day and both are "ANTITHESIS" of each other one way or more that one. Eid and Ganesh chaturdi fall on this very day.
Most fascinating part of this blog is that both the festivals has something to do with moon. Yes, the very moon that Neil Arm Strong landed on, few decades ago. When it is a festival for one group of INDIANS that they actually could site moon and on the contrary the other part of country celebrate to avoid moon for that particular day.
Now if i am a follower of Hinduism then i should not be sighting the sky today and avoid Mr. Moon for the day. And if i follow Muslim culture i should make sure i look at sky for hours together to sight moon even if it is cloudy. So, it is good for a person who is Muslim to sight the moon and pray. And it is not at all recommended for Hindu.
Well the Moon is Earth's only natural satellite and is the fifth largest satellite in the Solar System according to what i studied in my early primary days. But does moon really effect you considering which religion you belong to????????? Does moon really know your religion.
This is one question that everyone should ask them self . Specially when you start discriminating the other religion or a different culture. Every person who think his religion is supreme and other religions are not as worthy, should actually be able to answer this question. Does moon know your religion? Every person who takes part in communal riots and feel proud that he had done some thing for the religion should actually think if he is rite or wrong.
Well, i am SAKETH and i am actually assumed to follow Hinduism, but will it affect me in a different way if my name was SAKETH SIDDIQUE ????
Lets keep this aside...what if i was DAVID SAKETH??? Should i look at the sky or not? It doesn't matter to me at all.
Don't you think that nature really wants to tell us something very important. That every person is the same once he doesn't have any religious identity?? The power that is said to drive the life here created all of us with same taste.
WELL I REALLY FEEL NATURE JUST WANTED TO TELL US THAT WE ALL ARE HUMANS. WE ARE HERE TO SPEND SOME QUALITY TIME ,SOME HAPPY MOMENTS AND TO HELP EACH OTHER .
This a small attempt to people around me who really think religion, region and caste do not actually affect the life we live. Good or bad that happens to us is the result of what we think and what people think about us!!!
At least let us not drag moon into our discussion and let us leave MR. MOON to organisations like NASA and ISRO so that there can be few more NEIL ARM STRONGS here!!!!
