No Difference!!





A few months ago I was in Amritsar to visit the Golden temple. After visiting it we still had a lot of time in hand(why do people say "time in hand?") so dad decided that we go and see the "Wagah border" .In the evening we went there and saw the parade and all.Soldiers handsomely dressed marching around.A guy with a mike in hand screaming all sorts of instructions.I was wondering that all they have to do is pull down the flags....why are they dancing around like this?People around me were eating popcorn...I ddnt feel like eating though because it ddnt taste that good.I was getting very bored and hoped that this thing got over soon.The man holding the mike screamed "Ab aap sab baith jaye".Everyone went silent.I was silent from the beginning but suddenly something fascinated me. A group of crows flying from the eastern direction towards the western direction and that is when i opened my mouth and exclaimed "Ohhhh!! So there is no difference between Indian crows and Pakistani crows.!" The people around me stared at me but I ddnt notice and kept on jabbering " And Pakistani breeze and Indian breeze mei bhi koi difference nahi hai....and the trees are also the same!! " My mum and dad were sitting next to me seeing that people were staring they asked me to shut up . We stayed there for a little while more and then we left. None of us spoke in the car.I was still wondering that when there is no difference between the crows and trees and wind....and they live so peacefully together...then why cant we humans also stay peacefully together?

We cant stay in order... there are reasons and absolutely no reason for that.. but still, we cant...

I went to Waga Border, in 2003
all alone... and it was a great experience... I saw Pakistanis singing "Hawa hawa, o hawa khushboo luta de..." as a Patriotic song there.. that was hilarious.. anyways, I enjoyed the mood and the Girl in Pink sitting opposite to me.. and the NCC cadets too... I liked it... could not take wife there, due to shortage of time... next time, we surely will go again :)

Thanks for giving the thought ans sharing....

Panchhi nadiyaan pazwan ke jhonke
Koi sarhad na inhein roke

I have had friends from Pakistan and they are among the nicest people I have ever met! So, common man-wise, there is probably not a big difference, but there is a sarhad and there are issues - real ones - that every sarhad will bring!
