करीब १२-१३ बरस का था। नए पड़ोसी आये थे उस दिन।  माँ ने मुझे उनकी मदद करने के लिए भेजा।  एक ट्रक भर कर सामान था। काफी चीज़ें थीं। घर में उनके बस सिन्हा अंकल खुद, उनकी पत्नी और उनकी बेटी थी। आंटी और बेटी तो अंदर बैठ गए, सो मैंने और अंकल ने मिलकर सारा सामान उतारा और अंदर रखा।  थालियाँ, चम्मच, मिक्सर ग्राइंडर – मुझसे तो यही उठ रहे थे।  करीब तीन से चार घंटों में ये काम पूरा हुआ। अंकल ने अंदर आकर बैठने को कहा। यही सोचकर कि कुछ खाने पीने को मिलेगा, मैं अंदर बैठ गया।

Headache is perhaps the most dangerous weapon of nature against man. No matter how many nuclear weapons you have made, you still have a headache saving them from hackers. No matter how much wealth you have made selling beer in Aidin, you still have a headache of running around in a court of London. In a way, it is a great leveller. It’s almost like nature knew that she would be screwed up by us human, so she put one of her own in our head – an ache.

There is another set of writers who are plain-lazy. Their strength lies in making a listicle of almost everything. While there are good listicle writers out there, a majority of the writers do listicles to just churn out unimaginable number of articles every day. That is when writers have to meet their targets of x number of ‘viral’ articles per month.

The Muslims of the country have always lived in fear. They are targeted selectively and put to long years of torture behind the bars for crimes they have not committed. Isn’t it true that it is easier today to frame false charges against a Muslim than a Hindu? Aren’t they soft targets of all law enforcement agencies? There are Hindutva-forces today who are trying to appropriate Ambedkar forgetting that he left Hinduism to become a Buddhist.
