Human mind is a mystery. It’s belief system is even more mysterious. Human mind’s blindness to the obvious is even greater mystery. Our ability to read history and learn any lesson from it is at the most palpable. The lust for power of the few is obvious and rest following them to their graves is perplexing. The story of magician playing flute in the streets of Venice to take away rats or children seems fictional even when the scene is playing right before our eyes and people come on streets to demand something which is impossible and end is a fall from cliff.
Human civilization can not be turned backward. Some pockets can be taken to the past but now the demand is to return to the dark ages. An era of supremacy of one community identified by religion. Politicians in their lust for power without responsibility promote this politics of identity. They refuse to see that the France which is under attack by these religious leaders was once friendly towards Capital of terrorism aka Pakistan.
Silence of lambs and foxes:
While people are beheaded in France and a girl is cold bloodily shot dead in broad day light in Vallabhgarh, India nobody comes forward to condemn the killings. When Kamlesh Tiwari was beheaded in Lucknow for alleged blasphemy. When terror organization use religious names for their organization, there is no condemnation. When members of political party i.e. BJP are killed in Kashmir by Islamic terrorist and in Kerala by communists and in Chhatisgarh Maoist kill Congress party, there is silence. Complete silence. This reminds me of following extract from the story called The Adventure of Silver Blaze by Sir Arthur Conan Doyale:
“Gregory (Scotland Yard detective): Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?
Holmes: To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.
Gregory: The dog did nothing in the night-time.
Holmes: That was the curious incident.”
