The Auto Wallah

- Boss, forum chaloge?
- Baitho saab.
(10-15 mins)
- Boss, ye auto ruka hua hai to bhi meter chalta hai kya?
- Nahi sir, distance ke hisaab se paisa aata hai.
- Idhar forum pe wait karna hai, saab?
- Nahi, main to picture dekhne ja raha hoon. Raat ko hi wapis jaunga.
- Saab raat ko dhyan rakhna, aajkal auto wale loot lete hain. Usi auto mein baithna jahan sirf ek hi aadmi ho. Do wale mein lafda rahega.
- hmmm..
- Waise koi bhi Hindu autowala aisa nahi karta. Ye sab to muslim log hi karte hain.
- hmm..
(silence)
- Saab, aap kya? Hindu ya Muslim?

Religion, Conversions, Tolerance, Racism, Terrorism, war on terror etc. leave very strong feelings and often lead to debates. Your blog made me think of the Indian context

I feel Terrorism need not be overt. It could be covert too. . My blog below is on how the society defines the "weak" and who becomes the underdog !

"..Gudia, a Muslim girl and Shri Ramdev ji, a Hindu male...".
