Conversation between my alter ego & me – Is killing someone right?

Totally inspired by my friends Chota Bacchan (Abhishek) & Chota Rajan, I thought I should write my blog about an unusual conversation that usually takes place between my alter ego and myself…
Myself – Hey, is killing someone right?

Yesterday was a great day for me. A send off party for a colleague for whom I had predicted a job change, and an invitation from an ex-colleague for whom I had predicted a marriage this mid-year. It is of course an orgasmic feeling when my predictions come true. Also I try to condition myself for taking brickbats with stride when prediction goes for a toss, as always criticisms travel faster than acknowledgements.

Totally inspired by my friends Chota Bacchan (Abhishek) & Chota Rajan, I thought I should write my blog about an unusual conversation that usually takes place between my alter ego and myself…

Myself – Hey, is killing someone right?

Alter Ego – Huh! You out of your mind? Of course it is. Remember you could be jailed for life, and also it is a biggest sin as far as religions are concerned.

Myself – Then why are people conferred with Param Veer Chakra for killing Pakistanis?

Alter Ego – Yuck. That is a silly argument. That is because they are our enemies.

Myself – What if you killed Pakistanis before 1947? You still would have got Param Veer Chakra?

Alter Ego – NO! You would have been put behind bars.

Myself – So does that mean, your actions lead to different repercussions based on the year you commit a murder?

Alter Ego – Wait. See it is like this. They were our friends once upon a time. But now they are not. They are our enemies since 1947 after we got separated from them. So there is nothing wrong in killing Pakistanis at the border who try to infiltrate India.

Myself – So what if we reunite? Will the killing stop? And will the Param Veer Chakra substituted by imprisonment?

Alter Ego –May be. They are all govt set patterns. If they say Pakistan is our enemy, just aim and shoot them. If tomorrow they ask you to aim at your neighboring state - do the same. All the fights /wars in the world are for pieces of land – that belongs to none other than God.

Myself – You mean to say anyone who comes to capture my piece of land becomes my enemy? In that case I think I should aim at my relatives who barge in without notice. Sometimes of course to capture!

Alter Ego –Don’t joke. So, am sure your confusion is solved right?

Myself – Yeah..to some extent. I understood that it all depends on the circumstances and not the real action. Anything can be justified and anything can be proven wrong at any particular time. BTW I got another doubt!

Alter Ego - Oops! No, not again….ok go ahead. Let this be your last doubt for today.

Myself – OK. About the sin part you were talking about. Imagine a situation – for instance a stage play is happening, and it is a scene where Brutus has to stab Julius Caesar to death. Now tell me is that a sin?

Alter Ego – I hate you when you ask such childish questions. How can this be a sin? They are just characters enacting their roles, and am sure Brutus is using a dummy knife.

Myself – Yeah right, but then what if the knife was a REAL one?

Alter Ego – Then of course the sin goes to the character who is playing Brutus.

Myself – What if the dummy knife was deliberately exchanged with a real one by another guy before the show, and that Brutus completely unaware about the same?

Alter Ego – Then the sin goes to the person who exchanged the knife and not Brutus.

Myself – OK. What if, he was paid to exchange the knife?

Alter Ego – Then the sin goes to the person who planned the killing by paying this person.

Myself – What if the person who paid is a police officer, and the person who enacted Caesar was an ISI agent?

Alter Ego – mmm then the sin goes to the person who died.

Myself – I leave the argument here…thanks for your time. Have a great day.
