‘Maybe it is time to change my son’s name’: The new reality of being Muslim in India

Saira does not call her son by her name when they are out of the house. “I prefer to use J, it does not sound like a Muslim,” said Saira, 40, a former colleague from whom I learned the first name in his application and whose Muslim identity has never been before an argument. “I’m afraid what I say, but it’s the truth.”

J always asked his mother the difference between him and his friends, who always told him there were none. They were all Indians under different names, he said.

This explanation, Saira, obviously worried, told me that it is weakening at once of prejudices and violence against Muslims unusual.

“I never thought there would be a day when I live in fear in my country,” Saira said. His 80-year-old father, who lives in a mostly Hindu area, told him he had never imagined living in these times.

“And this from a man who has witnessed partition riots,” he said. “I tell my house never to reveal his identity when traveling alone on a train.

Yes, it has come to this. Just before I spoke with Saira, I heard the strange but disturbing story of Nazmul Hassan, an Aligarh power plant engineer arrested by the police on 2 July after being found at a train station in a burqa.

The police interrogated him closely to determine if it was related to terrorism, but the truth has fallen, they seem to have been bad for him.

“When Hassan was turned over to GRP, he was crying and shivering and repeated that he was a simple man who has never done anything wrong,” said then-Superintendent of Police Rajesh Pandey, Times of India .

Hassan was in a burka because he was recently threatened by another passenger who accidentally falls by train. The man insulted his Islamic faith, and – accompanied by others – said that Hassan would be driven Aligarh.

“I read about the killing of Junaid [a Muslim teenager stabbed to death by Hindus in Haryana last month] on a train … there are some days,” Hassan said. “I was afraid for my life after the threat.”

Fear of Hassan submerged facts: Muslim women, especially burkas and hijab often feel threatened, the feeling that has been known in recent years.

Last year, two women from the Muslim village Madhya Pradesh – not burkas – were beaten and slapped for the first time by vacheurs and later by a mob that had gathered, suspected of being beef.

It was found that meat to be a buffalo – called sabzi or vegetable, in local jargon, a euphemism that betrays fear of any kind of meat – but none of this would have been important.

Police, of course, women arrested because they were not allowed to sell meat under a national animal conservation law, but has not stopped those who beat them and abused it by saying “no one complained.”

For northern India, as many stories have revealed, Hindu groups mobilize through cities, running like angry bees to threaten or attack Muslims who believe they have acted or need to show them their place.

Sometimes other minorities like Dalits and Christians are also objective. Dals Gau Rakshak, welfare organizations, cows roam the roads, control vehicles – often with police support – that carry livestock.

Eye on polls in Gujarat, Karnataka, the BJP is all set to push backward classes Bill in Parliament

With crucial elections taking place in Gujarat and Karnataka, a proposed constitutional state promulgating the law to the National Commission of backwards classes is at the forefront of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party during the monsoon session of Parliament, which begins on July 17.

After several rounds of discussion, the selection committee introduced the report in Parliament during the monsoon session. It is expected that the bill to have a smooth transition, since all political parties agree on the content of the law.

The bill will give the powers of the commission offered to repair the complaints of members of the backwards classes in the same order as those enjoyed by the National Breed Commission.

The creation of a National Commission for Backwards classes, greater power of decision will undoubtedly be a great victory for Narendra Modi government and will be presented as such in the coming months.

Gujarat goes to the polls later this year. Elections in Karnataka are planned for 2018, but media reports said the state’s chief minister, Siddaramaiah, is in favour of progress in December.

However, the BJP does not expect approval of the Act to consolidate its support among the backwards classes. The party has already launched a national campaign to spread the fact that it is the government of Modi has ensured that backwards classes get their rights.

EU ministers and BJP leaders have travelled to different states to convey this message to the widest audience possible. At the same time, the party also takes every opportunity to clear Congress to take the bill in the Rajya Sabha and paint the main opposition party as “antitrust classes.”

A senior BJP official said: “Congress is going to pay a high political price to block the bill.” Therefore, regardless of the approval of the bill in the monsoon session, BJP strategists have assured that the party would win in one way or another.

BJP’s awareness of backwards classes has grown since it got its support in the polls at Lok Sabha in 2014. Modi’s projection as the back-class leader has come a long way than the way to win.

More recently, the BJP’s experience in Uttar Pradesh to accommodate non-Yadav members back classes in their party structures and give them a chunk of polling entries in the Assembly from February to March has paid rich political dividends. The party swept the election, winning 312 of 403 seats.

The BJP plans to extend this strategy across the country, as backwards classes constitute more than 50% of the population. The immediate goal of the party in Gujarat and Karnataka, but also the hope of making significant progress in the southern states, where the back classes play a crucial role in electoral politics.

Following its Uttar Pradesh strategy, the BJP has identified the leaders of the later classes locally in several states, while party chairman Amit Shah held a series of meetings with them in as many states as Gujarat, Telangana, Kerala and Goa itself.

“We have had a very good response in all these states,” said a BJP leader. The BJP hopes that its emphasis on backwards classes will help expand its presence in the south, where it is considered primarily a Brahmin feast confined in the “Hindi cow belt.”

‘Mrs C Remembers’ investigates the politics of Indian families, where loss of memory becomes a tool

The first novel by Himanjali Sankar “adult”, Ms C Memorial, is described as an “exploration advancing the limits of presentation, disease and disruption, and unfathomable power of the human spirit.”

This novel includes many aspects of contemporary urban life in India, but Sankar subtly, instead of drilling, shows of them is the inevitable failure of each family.

On a simple level, Mrs. C recalls speaking to Anita Chatterjee and her daughter Sohini, navigating life as part of the Kolkata elite.

Mrs. C., whose name almost always belongs with the prefix attached (unless simply as “Ma”) is subject to the many social relations that prevent it.

I say that the novel is subtle because it is only in retrospect that Mrs. C. descent to madness seems inevitable. This is not what he remembers, as the title suggests, ironically, but he forgets that tradition imposes Bengali restrictions.

And what is the exhausting efficiency. Mrs. C and Sohini take turns telling the story of their lives. As well draped sari – based Ms. C holds – appearances should be maintained, preserved social relations, diplomacy exercised.

All this under the watchful eye of the abusive mother of her husband, who seems to grow long after his death at the beginning of the book.

For Sohini, whose journey from early childhood to motherhood was not as simple as Mrs. C. reconcile her mother’s compulsive need to please everyone with her future, it becomes a shared battle over a period of several subplots and 14 , While in the middle ages.

Mrs. C remember is simply written, with a prose that sticks to the goal. Sankar raises difficult questions from people who lead everyday life: can you be your mother’s best friend, even if she has told you that they are less of your brother?

Can the love of her husband, even if he remains silent when his mother insults him? Do not say “yes” to any of these conditions would make a woman weak? What constitutes a strong woman?

The characters try to relate to the political movements of our time – the Godhra Nirbhaya riots to stop Kanhaiya Kumar.

Although widely discussed – in a Bengali manual, left liberal form – it never fully penetrates the family, nor in the life of each character, not even in the novel itself. Despite the need to be aware and have a political position, ultimately, the characters are concerned about their own lives.

Even Sanchita, Naxal’s comforting feminist sister C Sohini said, “I thought about how our lives would end if something happened to you. Nothing else seems important when this thought comes into your head.

The only thing you want your child to be alive and healthy. “And Mr. C’s growing apathy for Muslims becomes a factor that the family must negotiate not because of major ethical problems, but because partner Omar Sohini is Muslim.

Instead, Sankar investigate India’s family policy. It degrades, is a history of fulfillment, the roles that family relationships seem to produce firmly, housewives, obedient jealous stepmother, insensitive husband, apathetic son, rebellious daughter.

While Mrs. C has spent her life playing – and adapting – these functions, she can, as she grows old, her forgetfulness becomes the ideal tool for denial, allowing her to reject everything expected all these years.

Set in the glitter of Gurgaon, ‘The Windfall’ is the novel of India’s poor little rich crowd

The history of India Shining, its growing middle class, as it is growing in wealth and consumption without restrictions, had its recent literary interpretations.

The Ghachar Ghochar Vivek Shanbag, a novel in Kannada translated by Srinath Perur says unintended consequences in a family visited by unexpected wealth.

A man makes a fortune, after a surprising and innovative company idea, and moves his extended family in an exclusive area in Bangalore. The increase in wealth comes with a moral decline.

Bangalore, a city with its recent modernity, also saw its claim by traditionalists who successfully challenged the old name of the city, so it has become Bangalore.

Gurgaon continues in the same way, his story is, without a doubt, more chaotic and dirty. The 21st century India has seen a boom in the service industry, and flourished Gurgaon, also helped by its proximity to Delhi. And now Gurugram Gurgaon.

Gurgaon is in many ways like the Diksha Basu shows in his novel, Bonanza, the opposite of Delhi, a city that adjoin. In Basu’s book, Gurgaon is mentioned in several places as suburbs of Delhi.

It would be very bad. The seamless connectivity between the two does so well (some might confirm otherwise, though).

In the bonanza, what is clear is that Gurgaon is a separate and radically different place of Mayur Palli east of Delhi.

For two decades before Anil Jha moved his family into an ostentatious mansion whose owners have already moved to Kensington, Mayur Palli hosted Anil, his wife, Bindu and his son, Rupak.

JHAs like the Ghachar Ghochar family come to unexpected wealth after Anil Jha makes a successful multi-million dollar sale to the website he had developed: justcall.com.

We will never know the details, but almost in a Sabeer Bhatia (Hotmail) in the same way, it lives up to the wealth. M. Jha is a self-made man, having lost his father at an early age, and obviously worked hard to make sure of his family.

But this wealth is transformed, at the age of 52, in a much more drastic way, like his wife, who seems to be against the heart with her, and his son, Rupak, who in the Ithaca end make clear what to do with New wealth, even his parents or himself.

M. Jha has seen many struggles, including her widowed mother, living a life of stress, and seems to want a transformation inspired by the neighboring neighbor Gurgaon, Chopras.

There are two strands of the story: a novel in an incredibly clumsy middle-aged stage, introduced by Mrs. Jha, Upen between Chopra and Mrs. Jha’s best friend, Mayur Palli, Reema Ray.

And Rupak Jha difficulties in college, to insufficiency of college and love. In the end, only in the case of self-awareness that has been granted in this novel, he realizes that he also failed to be a son.

These are based on JHAs and the changes in their lives. His new fortunes were completely successful Mr. Jha. The desire to excel not only to erase the last miseries, but extends to the acquisitions that M. Jha desperately seeks:

Abhijeet Bhattacharya’s Twitter account suspended, singer claims his tweets not offensive

Twitter suspends Tuesday’s account Bollywood singer, Abhijeet Bhattacharya, following the publication of a series of assumptions of offensive tweets. The singer says that the action is aimed at kerbing the nationalist voice like his. The singer’s Tweets focused on updates from JNU student Shehla Rashid against the BJP.
Speaking to The Indian Express on Tuesday, he said: “My tweets were not offensive. The whole nation is now with me. Those who feel offended are anti-national elements. They must abuse the … Indian army, you can speak against Our Prime Minister and get out of the way, but simply replying to your tweets can suspend your accounts. ”
Twitter has surpassed later that users have accused the singer of 58 years of using an “inappropriate” language and “an insult”.
“Suspended account: This account has been suspended …” said the Twitter message in his hand. Abhijeet has been a serial offender on Twitter. The singer had received bulletins on the social media site for a series of inflammatory tweets against journalist Swati Chaturvedi, who had filed a police report against him last year in July. The complaint led to his arrest. When he was released on bail, the singer would have burst into tears.
Repentance did not last long as it defies the singer he said later he repeated his words if he wished. On May 22, Abhijeet has poured venom on some women Twitter users, including UNHCR student Shehla Rashid, who
One led some users to complain to Twitter. “Thank you sincerely for all the support, Abhijeet had to remove his tweet, his Twitter account has also been suspended,” Sheila said today.
Abhijeet had already responded to JNU students, “There is a rumour that she took the money for two hours and did not do it
. Meet the customer … big racket “In another tweet, she had insulted a Twitter user when she called her inflammatory tweets, where she wrote:” You Ms Pak. Tell me what your cage is right? Go there … it will be the favourite pose. “However, it is unclear whether Twitter’s decision is temporary or permanent.

SUCCESS IN GROUP DISCUSSION WINNING THE FIRST IMPRESSION

Welcome to

leader should display initiative, seek out greater responsibilities and shoulder them smilingly and cheerfully. There could be umpteen provocations that might compel a lesser mind to throw away all responsibilities in a huff and take to a life of ease, but those made of sterner stuff convert provocations into challenges and become all the more determined to battle through life. Such leaders succeed in taking the group along with them and instill confidence in each member of the group.

ties with the latter as our Prime Minister Mr. Modi did by making an unannounced personal visit in December 2015. There are many poHtical experts and analysts who cite the huge amounts spent by both the countries on defence year-after-year as an extremely worrying development and beUeve that these can be diverted to socio-economic development measures for the real welfare of the teeming deprived people on both sides. But the trouble is while we have accepted the existence of Pakistan, the latter has different dreams. So we have to be wary of our enemy’s designs. Going by the crafty and evil designs, which it has been engineering to this date, there seems to be hardly any rationale for trusting Pakistan now. It has frequently gone back on its promises. It brazenly outraged Shimla Agreement of 1972.

In the wake of the Mumbai blasts, Pakistan had exposed its intents once again to the world that it was not willing to shun its locus standi of sabotaging India’s peace initiatives. Pakistan Government’s pronounced ignorance of any terrorist outfit operating from the country on the one hand and refusal to hand over terrorists like Syed Salahuddin and underworld don Dawood Ibrahim to India on the other, beat aE logic in the world. So, in my view, it is high time we started responding to Pakistan’s designs on their own turf and make preparations for showing our miHtary might once again to subdue Pakistan into sEence as we have done several times earlier. Any dialogue with regard to

estabHshing a peaceful atmosphere of co-existence wiE prove futile, because it wiE be a unilateral initiative. Pakistan has never wanted, nor wiE ever be ready to resolve the differences in a peaceful manner. It now appears ludicrous that in spite of the failure, both sides have decided to remain engaged.

Comments : This candidate has a positive approach to solve problems. He uses his resources to advantage. He approaches the problem in a logical and rational manner, and obtains the maximum benefits possible under the given circumstances. Besides being original, he is also practical and thorough. This dy namic candidate is goal-oriented and gifted. He can lead his team to success and contribute to the growth of * his organisation significantly. Selected with top honours.

No. 6 : Gentlemen, I am sorry, please. Dear friends, you must excuse me. You see whatever I wanted to say has already been said by our friend No. 5. We have identical views and if I had spoken first,

I am sure No. 5 would have reacted in the same way like I am reacting now. As I said earEer, I have read this subject with keenness in different newspapers and journals. I endorse the views of No. 5 by which we have nothing to lose but a lot to gain.

Comments : A mild and timid candidate lacking in self-confidence and enterprise, begetsfrightened and nervous when he encounters opposition and lacks the determination to face them with courage. He could be, at best, a useful worker under a good leader. Not suited for managerial tasks. Rejected.

No. 7From what you aE have said I conclude that it has no utiHty in real terms. The Father of the Nation beHeved in truth and not in propaganda. We should viprry about the substance and not bother about the appearances.

Comments :■ No. 7 is confused and complacent. By resorting to moralising, he is likely to cause divisions. He is also devoid of ideas. Basically, he has remained aloof from group deliberations and abstained from making any contribution whatever to the achievement of the group task. Thus, even as a worker, he would be of no use to the team. Rejected.

No. 8 : Friends, I am the last one to speak. I think there is something in what both the sides have said. I reaEv do not know what to choose and whom to support. It is best to remain neutral. Among yourselves, you can decide by | voting if you want. But I would not Eke to cast my vote. Thank you, that is aE.

Comments : No. 8 is a du/l and insipid individual, devoid of ideas and motivation. Dynamically weak, he lacks the urge, pluck ’ and initiative. He shies away from [ responsibilities, and cannot accept any risks. A p totally dependent individual who will be a big, I ! burden on his team. Rejected.  EES
