Religion and conscience

 

 

I wonder, is religion outcome of conscience, or conscience is outcome of religion, or both backing each other?

If religion is outcome of conscience then it must be based on truth and reasoning. Reasoning to find truth, which is further developed as faith. So faith comes from finding truth, reasoning and conscience. But, later on, faith becomes so strong that we subdue our conscience, truth and reasoning, and we totally submit ourself to faith. Then what we do, that, our conscience never would allow to do. Resulting dehumanization of human being.

If conscience is outcome of religion, then conscience is not conscience. It is outer voice that we treat it as words of God. And we feel like, it is conscience.

No doubt, Religion is outcome of conscience and which further guide our conscience. Probably, religions are brought to harmonize the conscience of people with conscience of society. But what happen to religions? Why it become so authoritative and rigid. It should and must progress as our conscience progress. In developing faith, first we cultivated the fear of god in people’s mind, and then we distort the will of God through different religious textbook and through mouthpiece of religious leader. Which, latter on, become a deadly cocktail of faith and greed. In which, only poor people grind. Latter on whole society.

After listening this, my friends ask me “so you are an atheist and question existence of god”. I reply “I do believe in God which I call it nature, the Mother Nature”

Justice will be buyed!

Reasoning is soul of judiciary, but satire become important tool to counter any argument, and a way to put your view. Social media have intruded in our reasoning and factual base so much so that we went, more often, for popular justice. Todays facts are justified on basis of number of shares and likes. And questions, how so many people could be ignorant.

 

  Justice will be buyed!

Do not worry, justice will be buyed.

Trial will run on newspaper, and cried.

It will be heard on TV, and justified.

Take your tea sip, and all will be verified.

Do not worry baby, Justice will be buyed.

Intellects say justice is blind.

It needs proof, even if that is not kind.

Proof will be collected from number of

comments, likes, shares and in kind.

Keep commenting and sharing, until it reach everyone’s mind.

Before start of trial, story will be verified.

Do not worry baby, Justice will be buyed.

Yes, you all moral pujaris, sitting like judge.

I know you are righteous and have no grudge.

You judge everybody but don’t like to be judged.

You verify everyone by seeing, listening and fudging.

This is world of illusion, and it will be glorified.

Do not worry baby, Justice will be buyed.

An affair, with poetry

Ye jo jhopadi hai, darr hai ki is bar toophan me kahin ud na jay.
Jayda kuchh to bacha nahi hai, bas teri yadon ka ek baksha hai,
Jisme kuchh purane, tumhare sath bitaye pal hai.
Aur teri baton ki ek bichhawan bachi hai,
Jo pahle ruhani lagti thi ab bas chubhti hai.
Aur teri nakhron ki ek takiya thi, jane kahan chali gayi.
Iski chat me wakt ne kuchh dararen kar di hai,
Socha tha barish ke pahle thik karunga,
Par lagta nahi, uparwale ko manjoor hai.
Aur ye ek ummidon se jar jar darwaja hai jo khulta nahi.
Suna hai ye toophan tumhari or hi le jayegi.

Tere wapas aane ki chah-e-ishaq me kab tak baithe.
ujdenge to kya hua, kam se kam tere pass to pahunche.

Goddamn reality

Gods are on the clouds, they never come down.
Justice is underground, it never rise up.
Global warming is on rise, so humanity is vapourising.
Fuck off the trust, money is mesmerising.
If you have money, lets do party as other doing.
Goddamn reality.

I went to school, I went to college.
Goddam everyday and everyweek.
I learned heart is clean and sex is dirty.
Still you curve out the later, the former is empty.
Goddamn reality.

we learned everything, what we didnt learned, how to be human.
we shout when other shout, we move when other move.
But we laugh when other cry.
In race of winning, we lost every bit of humanity.
True to cruelty, Goddamn reality

Tribute to Delhi gang rape victim

Yahan log naam kya, dharm kya, har bat par larte hai,

Bhasha kya, chhetra kya, ye to jajbat par larte hai.

Aaj yahan ek desh me kai desh dikhai padta hai,

Is wakt to sara desh kuruchhetra dikhai padta hai.

Ye lakchhmanrekha ke nam par boti boti noch khate hai,

samaj aur sanskriti ke nam par apne hi bachche kat khate hai.

Aaj humare hi ghar me humari stri abla dikhai padti hai,

Is wakt to sara desh droupadi ki sabha dikhai padti hai.

Lakin is badle wakt me, ab hum na rukenge, na jhukenge,

Tum nind se na jag jao, hum tab tak chillayenge.

Aaj har chowk-chowrahe me ek hi gunj sunai padta hai.

Is wakt to sara desh jallianwala bagh dikhai padta hai.

यहाँ लोग नाम क्या, धर्म क्या , हर बात पे लड़ते  है।

भाषा क्या, छेत्र क्या, हम तो जज्बात  पर लड़ते है।

आज यहाँ   एक देश में, कई देश दिखाई पड़ता है।

इस वक्त तो सारा देश, कुरुछेत्र दिखाई पड़ता है।

हम लछमणरेखा के नाम पर,  बोटी  नोंच नोंच खाते है।

समाज और संस्कृति के नाम पर, अपने बच्चे काट खाते है।

आज हमारे घर में हमारी स्त्री ही, अबला दिखाई पड़ती है।

इस वक्त तो सारा देश, द्रोपदि की सभा दिखाई पड़ती है।

लेकिन इस  बदलते वक्त में, अब हम ना रुकेंगे, ना झुकेंगे।

तुम नींद से ना जाग जाओ, हम तब तक चिल्लाएंगे।

आज हर मुहल्ले में, चौक-चौराहे में, इक ही गूंज दिखाई पड़ता है।

इस वक्त तो सारा देश, जलियांवाला बाग दिखाई पड़ता है।

Majesty of law

We, most of, do not read our religious epic (granth) but we always ready to argue on any of its text and start comparing with other religion. Not only argue, we are ready to fight and die. We start supporting one point by violating other point of same book. I remember, in childhood, when I was student of Saraswati Shishu Vidya Mandir, a RSS school. There were competitions on public speaking of “sloke”. That time we never understood value of remembering sloke and applying into life. We just saw as only winning prize. But these sloke teach us great “values of life and values in life”.

These thought came in my mind when I read verdict of court on a case, in which, a maulvi forced a young Muslim girl into a wedding with a married man, who allegedly raped her subsequently. The maulvi claimed that the Shariah permitted a Muslim to keep 4 wives at a time and that the girl consented to the marriage.

Just read the statement of additional sessions Judge Kamini Lau on this case. That will provide you more broad view to see a religion, not only yours, others also. We know “Dharm insan ke liye bana hai, insan dharm ke liye nahi”. But we do not understand this simple line.

Ms. Lau said: “The Indian legal system provides sufficient space for religious freedom but whenever any such regressive religious practice come into conflict with the rights of the citizens as enshrined in the Indian Constitution, it becomes obligatory for courts to ensure that it is the majesty of law and the constitutional mandate which prevail.
Jurists are unanimous that in Islamic societies polygamous marriages are permitted but only in certain circumstances, that are primarily in situations where a man’s death has left his widows with no means or support. Polygamy is neither mandatory nor encouraged but merely permitted. The Koran’s conditional endorsement stresses that self-interest or sexual desire should not be the reason for entering into a polygamous marriage. It is a practice associated with the social duty of Islamic men to protect the social and financial standing of widows and orphans in their community. It is equally the duty of the religious heads, priests, maulvis and all those involved in propagating religion to ensure that the religious texts are progressively interpreted and to confirm that it is only those beneficial practices which are in the best interest of all sections of humanity which are encouraged and observed.”
