Me & God: September 2006 Archives
After abandoning the queue….quite perturbed I stood there thinking what to do next? My mom called me over the phone. I told her that I am not taking the Lord Balaji’s darshan this time, and will rather attend my friend’s marriage and come back. She said it is not a good idea to not to take darshan after being in Tirupathi. I said it is fine, will check next time. I had my lunch, and called my friend who was getting married to guide me to the room he had booked for me. Through all the possible contacts he had, he was trying his best to get a darshan for me – but nothing seemed to be materializing.
I had a prayer pending. I had prayed to come walking to Tirupathi (hill top) from Alipiri (down hill). Incidentally one of my clients was getting married on 10th, and I thought I could club both – marriage as well as Lord Balaji’s darshan. The last time I visited Tirupathi was in the year 1990 – a fully sponsored trip - with my father, mother and sisters. The thought of Tirupathi always gave me jitters especially the huge crowd and the long queues. Formerly it used to take 4-6 hours for God’s darshan and these days it takes 2-3 days!!!
Just because few Muslims happen to be terrorists, it doesn’t mean we need to get biased towards all of them. All my friends who are Muslims are peaceful & peace loving people and they hardly talk about violence. But in recent times the West and the media have succeeded in creating a fear in minds of people against Muslims, that which happened against Sikhs a couple of decades back. Thanks to our own fundamentalist parties like BJP & RSS to have added more venom to the otherwise brotherly relationship.
Here is the pocast interview with Dr M P Aboobakar, an expert in Islam, who throws light on few misunderstood and misinterpreted concepts about Islam….
The Questions that were asked were…..
In context with the latest controversies connected to Muslims and Islam, I thought having a conversation with a Muslim expert would throw some light on few interpretations and few misinterpretations related to Islam. Hence planned a podcast interview with Mr Dr M P Aboobakr…..
