Holocaust Diaries : Forgiving Dr Mengele

I have recently taken an interest in history and future at the same time. PRESENT doesn’t entice me anymore. So, anyways I have picked up Holocaust from the past and about future, we will discuss that in some other post… Some other day.

I just finished watching the documentary ‘Forgiving Dr Mengele’ which talks about the unaccounted for experiments that Dr Mengele used to do on twins. There is no records of what exactly he did and he never discussed the same with anyone. But the atrocities that the Jews went through and survived. Well, there are stories to be discussed.

This documentary talks about one of the ‘Mengele twins’ by the name of Eva Mozes Kor who talks about how they were separated from their family and were kept alive because the doctor wanted to conduct experiments on twins.

Eva talks about how she has forgiven the Nazis and how she has liberated herself. She received a lot of criticism for the same from the other survivors because for them it was not easy to let go of the anger. I completely understand how and why they wouldn’t be OK with what Eva did but what they fail to understand is that Eva did not forget what all she went through but she could not let the past affect her present more than she could help. She could never erase the past nor she could forget it but she could free herself from seeking answers and frustrating herself over what could not be answered now. She went through the worst in the world history and she lives with it each day and it is not easy. She just wants to let it go now and stop being a victim and I don’t see anything wrong in that.

Rest, I pray for the souls that departed during that time. It was painful…. It was uncalled for and it was unfair. The pain that the families went through are beyond our imagination and we can never say ‘I understand’.

Handling my own shit

I believe myself to be an independent person. Yes, I have been falsely accused of being the type who needs a male to take care of her but i know for a fact that I am not that person. And I have never been that person and certainly don’t intend to be in the near or the far future. Today, I am writing on this topic because few days back I was in a situation something related to this only.  I met a friend’s date and my younger sister and her friends were also there and they are below 21 so no liquor for them but one of her friends managed to buy a pint of beer and manager got furious and wanted to take action. Now, I know for a fact that I could have handled that situation very peacefully but my friend insisted on her date to take care of the matter. I was sitting right there and listening to the conversation and suddenly said something and my dear friend shushed me and said “don’t worry he can handle it.” Emmmmm….. Ok! And how he handled it. Well he vouched for three of us and completely denied any familiarity with my sister and her friends. I found it to be a bit odd. But what really made me squirm was the fact that my friend shushed me. I could have handled it. So, now we come to the topic of handling my own shit. I have always been the person who is very independent and I prefer not to take anybody’s help unless there is nothing that I can do about it. I prefer traveling on my own. I don’t want my dates to pick or drop me back because I know how to travel and I am not a kid who cannot travel alone. This irritates me the most. I don’t want to be treated like a princess/ kid or whatever notion is in the head of people. Oh! I don’t believe this as a way of pampering someone, at least not me. At the end of the day,I want to be responsible for my own actions and I don’t like to find excuses and that’s what precisely happens when you let people do you a ‘favor’ yes that is termed as favor in my dictionary. I know I can handle my own shit. I always have. And I always will.

MY RELIGION IS HUMANITY

ThinkHumanity-myalteregoinprocess-shrutisharma

I am ashamed!

I cannot see myself in the mirror!

I am disappointed with the fact that I am a human being!

Today, I don’t have enough words to express how I feel. I am speechless and I wish I could be blind. Religions were not supposed to do this to us. To let one human kill another in the name of religion. We have forgotten how to be humans. We have forgotten that we were all made in God’s image so that, in simple words, mean, that we are all equal. How does it matter if someone is Hindu or Muslim or Christian. How does it matter if we pray to different gods. What matters is we all breathe same air. We all strive to survive. We all wake up in the morning and sleep at night. So how is one different from another?

Children were shot at in Pakistan. What had those kids done? What was their fault? They were kids… studying…. in a school…. unarmed. Was that their fault?

It breaks my heart to see how this world is not a place I want to live in anymore. People have become sadist, selfish and get pleasure when somebody is in pain. They hurt animals, they hurt children, they rob, they kill, they murder, they rape, they mutilate…. WHY? WHY? WHY?

My plea is to people from all over the world. Just about everywhere, if you are breathing, if you wake up every morning and sleep at night. This is for you. Today, on this day I shun my religion and from today on I will say my religion is humanity. Nothing more…. nothing less. We have to put an end to these….. these fights… wars… battles…. killings…. attacks….. in the name of religion or anything else. We have to put an end to all of this. 

I shun the concept of countries, borders, anything that divides one human from another. We have had enough now. I don’t want any color, race, religion to define me. I am only a human being and that’s all I want to be. That’s how I want to be defined.

 

Are you with me in this? Will you stop saying that you are Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh, Jain, Baniya or anything like that? Will you sing along and say that  I AM A HUMAN AND MY RELIGION IS HUMANITY. 

 

Thanks a lot,

Shruti

Delhi Womaniya

This is a little something I have taken up with my girl friends. We have decided to come out strong about things we think need to be addressed or something about which we want to put our thoughts ahead. We shall be posting videos of one topic each week and hope to raise awareness amongst everyone.

All of us belong to Delhi but currently are located in different places. Humans have a tendency to stereotype and Delhi girls are stereotyped quite often We are trying to break that thought because all of us are different… we think differently… we take decisions differently. But one thing common in all of us is that we want to raise our voices against everything wrong with this world and we hope that people are listening.

This is just the beginning, we intend to go a long way from here.

Life… Destiny….Karma

I am tired of people talking about how life is.. how it is supposed to be… how this is how it happens…. how it was written in the destiny…. how it was never meant to happen.

Good Lord people! Can you just shut up for a while. No… none of the above statements is true. I refuse to stand by any of it. I am not ok with “this is how it was supposed to be”. No, this is not how it happens. Why are there always reasons and answers to things that did not happen. The destiny, the stars or that person, we always find a way to answer our questions. We have got to stop doing this to ourselves. I would rather live in a realistic world and live with real expectations. Well, truly no expectations at all. And no I don’t want to blame anyone or I don’t want to know how it is supposed to be.

My boyfriend broke up with me and I was inconsolable and all he could say was “this is your first break up, this is how it feels.” I told him that  I am not like his ex girlfriends and he doesn’t have to tell me how it is supposed to be. I would rather face the pains and hurt of life and come out stronger than being a fool who blames various other things.

The funniest part is that people keep telling you, be good and that’s how life will be to you. Let me be very honest with you. THIS IS NOT THE TRUTH. Be as good as you can be but the world will shit on you.

The only thing which keeps me strong is KARMA. That is one thing I believe in and shall always do. People do bad things to you and you can take revenge in the dirtiest ways possible, I do have it in me too. But that is the only difference between such people and me. I always let KARMA take over. Karma has always served me right and I shall stand tall and strong and won’t stoop to their level but I will only wait for Karma to serve me right. It has happened in the past and it shall keep happening.
