Why Religion is Irrelevant in Today’s Society?

Soldiers protect us. Science develops us. Languages connect us and Religion Divides us.

The Concept of God came into human society by the wrong doings of man. It was important that there was a fear of something so that man decides to stay good at all times and the society remains safe and merry. In ancient days there was lack of understanding and the colonies were too remote for people to keep a watch on each other. Many researches say that God was brought in order to bring control over people. You do good you reap good after death and if you do bad you will reap heat after death.

Have you ever had any proof of hell and heaven? Heaven was created so that people stay out of bad practices and were bribed to keep doing good so that you go to heaven (which never ever existed). People fear God to stay brave, so where’s the bravery. I have hardly seen people do good because they just like the good vibes of others blessings. Oh No! Not those blessings.

What is a Pope? A Religious Leader elected with Politics. Does the bible say that he’s the Leader?Long Before, Pope’s brought War in-order to Rule and Religious Laws which were very bad for the society and personal justice.

Religion should ideally be different than the concept of God. It exists in the same way as a law is attached to religion; consider Sharia as an example. The God is same in Judaism, Islam and Christianity but the messengers are different yet there’s so much hate over religion. Religion is a way which people practice to get their life crafted. Like you should never speak lies, never hurt anyone, help people, have good thoughts, be good and speak nice to people and calm the anger and so on. But when you add God, what is added is fear of the religion which which makes people follow it out of fear but what goes missing in the process is the crafting of our behavior, thought and mentality. For example a friend of mine attended church every Sunday, he drank whisky everyday and spoke dirty bad words to people he hated. He attended church not because he wanted to bring religious practice but because he wanted to show that he was a nice man who attended church every Sunday or may be he feared god after a Sunday morning hangover.

Christianity, Islam and and Judaism have the concept of one god, their messengers are different but what makes these Almighty controlled religions is their religious laws which came from the culture it originated from. Islam says don’t drink or touch alcohol and the rest say drink wine. Islam says you can have multiple wives but in the rest you can have only one. In Hindu religion there is no concept of divorce (if you go according to the texts) and the marriage is not a contract by a union of 2 people of opposite sex, but Islam, Christianity, Judaism have the concept of divorce and consider marriage as a contract. There are religious differences because religious laws including the so called personal laws exist.

People still follow Sharia and consider it greater than the state law. People still follow Manusmruti and Purushsutra which created a divide among different castes in the hindu religion. People confess their crimes to the church’s father thinking that that corrects their wrong doing. Please stop following the religious laws and believing in fake Gods and messengers, practice the religion not its laws. Bring good in the society, not out of Fear but out of your own Good.

Remember! Soldiers protect us. Science develops us. Languages connect us and Religion Divides us. God Feared Religion is unhealthy to the society and hence Irrelevant.

‘Not Without My Daughter’ (by Betty Mahmoody) – Book Review

An American Mother’s fight to escape to US. But she wont do that without her daughter.

‘Not Without My Daughter’ or ‘NWMD’ was written by Mrs. Betty Mahmoody along with some assistance from Mr. William Hoffer. This book is not a Fiction but is an Autobiography on a life’s phase of Betty Mahmoody. It’s a real incident and there is an English movie on this book with the same title, but the movie has skipped many important parts.

Many people like fiction, I like it too. But this book tough being an autobiography has got the energy and taste of fiction novels as the writing is so interesting, emotional and well written. Its written straight from the heart.

NWMD is about how Betty Mahmoody was cheated by her husband to live forcefully in Iran and how she was tortured and how she got stuck in the over-religious place for the sake of her daughter. Betty swore that she will leave Iran only with her Daughter and hence the title – ‘Not Without My Daughter.’

The book will take you through the life of Betty Mahmoody in Iran along with her Daughter (Mahtob), Husband (Moody) and Husbands relatives. It will also show you the life of Iranian women and how ridiculously the government supported extreme religious laws against women.

Everyone should read this book, especially women and among them mothers and teenaged daughters.

I recommend this book to every parent and their sons and daughters. I am giving below links to buy the book. Do buy them and let me know the reviews in the comments.

You may buy this wonderful book on Amazon: Not Without My Daughter

The Un-Official Breakup

Have you ever lost your love without a fight or misunderstanding because of a third person in your relationship? I am sure not because there has to be a reason, it may be selfish gains or long distance (known).

In 2006, mobile phones had just started getting the market and not all of us had them. Many had them and many not, it was an equal split of non-mobile users and mobile users, at least for teenagers at that time. Wondering why I am speaking about mobile phones? That’s because it’s also an important character apart from me and Priya (name changed because she may be married). I didn’t have a hand phone while Priya had it.

Priya was the most beautiful girl among all the girls in my tuition. I was 17 years old and I could not help see the diamond amongst all the coal in the mine. Priya was just the girl I wanted. She spoke English Fluently, was Studious, Intelligent, and most importantly she was Bold and Confident. I had a crush on her within the first one month of my tuition and that was because of her smile, speech and all the things apart from the beauty. I missed something, she was Naughty too; she would propose young guys like me wait for our blush and then say that she was just joking and wasn’t serious. So Naughty! I like Her!

There was a lot of competition as the hunt was the only beautiful female in a class with a majority of boys and all Virgin. Vivek (Name changed as he’s married too but not with Priya) was after Priya he had proposed her on a busy street with a rose. This happened in front of me and my heart slowed down then she said ‘yes’ and Vivek blushed and my heart stopped, and just before I was about to Die she laughed and said she was just joking and Friend Zoned him.

I managed to become her closest friend and I was successful. I never planned it. It just happened. We took walks on an empty street and talked stuff about the day just after tuition. While I knew I can say it I was worried that I would lose Priya’s trust or she might say yes and then make a fool of me. I had become a man without balls for that specific period of time.  But, I had to say it because it was February 2007 and tuitions was to end at the end of the month.

Till all this time I never had a mobile phone because my parents didn’t give me one. I never saved her contact number because I thought that’s too much, and that was the general norm of that time.

Tuition Ended..! And Priya handed me a note with her mobile number and drew a love sign. She didn’t speak later that day and I thought I could speak to her about my feelings the next day in the free time as we were all busy with studying for exams. I tried initiating a talk but she said, not today.

Next Day, I called Priya from my homes landline on her mobile number her dad picked up. I got scared and shut the call. Why did I call so early, it was 7 in the morning? Of course, her dad will pick up the phone. I shouldn’t have shut the call as her dad may have got a hint that I was hitting her. I called back in the afternoon, her dad picked up, I spoke and said I wanted to speak to Priya regarding some notes, he answered that I should speak to him and not her, I got scared and I shut the phone. I called that evening, the number was switched off and it never got switched on again after that day.

I didn’t know her house, nor her street. All I knew that she stayed in Nehru Nagar a big colony in Kurla East in Central Mumbai. After exams, I searched for her and gave up after a couple of days and left my relationship on Luck. One year passed without Priya. I was studying in Goa and her in Mumbai.  But then I came back for my summer holidays.

When I came back for my summer holidays and I happened to meet Priya on a Passenger Bus. When I met her her stop just arrived and she asked me my number. I didn’t have a mobile phone. She told me her new number and I didn’t have pen and paper. I kept repeating the number so that I don’t forget it. But when I reached home and dialed the number from the landline, I realized that number got changed when I kept repeating it.

I lost Priya the second time. 10 years have passed and there’s no sign of Priya.

Why I lost Priya? Because I didn’t have a cellphone.
