All the racists finally forced me back to write shit about them. Yes, I am back. A lot happened in my personal life while I was inactive. I had already hinted at health problems in the family but there was also a car accident. Luckily, my dad is okay but now we don’t have a car. Also, I am in school and it is crazy hectic. So, yeah with all the crappy things in life, I just didn’t want to blog. Oh, and I also forgot my password. Yeah, I am ashamed. But, now back to the racists. First, the new Miss America is of Indian descent. Yeah, go Nina Davaluri. Oh, wait some people were jealous and decided to display all their ignorance. Then, a Sikh-American professor from Columbia University gets beaten up by bunch a racist assholes. In both cases, racist idiots thought Brown people=Terrorists. Let me tell you one thing, you scumbags (I mean the racists, not the sweet readers) brown does not equal terrorist. There was also a real terrorist attack in Nairobi, Kenya and guess what, a bunch of innocent civilians died. Some of the victims had brown skin. I know, this might seem like a revelation but brown people are also victim of terrorism. Oh, and not all of us are Muslim. Even if someone is Muslim, it doesn’t automatically mean they are terrorists. Muslims are victims of terrorism too. Yup, it’s true. Sorry to burst your bubble. If you still do not believe me, then you are a racist douchenozzle who deserves to lick Hitler’s poop in Hell.
I am not happy with the verdict. But, let’s stop blaming the jurors. We don’t know what instructions they got from the judge and it is not easy to be a juror. Remember that the prosecution job is to convince them that Zimmerman was guilty without reasonable doubt. They failed to do so. Rather than getting angry at jurors, defense lawyers or the judge, we should be angry at ourselves. What type of society are we living in where a young black teen is seen as a threat? Let’s look at our own hidden biases first before blaming other people.
Indian parents do not believe their children need privacy. This means bedroom doors must remain open. If they are closed, it is perfectly okay to come without knocking. I am an adult but my parents still come to my room without knocking first.
Dad (opens door without knocking): Beta, Did you eat?
Me (annoyed): No, I did not. I’ll eat later.
Dad: Why keep the door closed? Don’t you feel suffocated? Keep it open so air can circulate.
BTW, if you are alone in your bedroom and doing something on your laptop, parents will assume the worst. What are you watching? You avoid bad sites, right? Sorry to disappoint you but I am not watching porn. Look, I am on WordPress. Ah, desi parents are a hoot.
Sorry for not posting but a family emergency took all my attention. I didn’t even go to my internship. Will do a new proper post tomorrow and also check out new posts from fellow bloggers. I missed you all. Happy to be back.
Go Canada! We are awesome! Anyhow, July 1st is surprisingly not that relevant to Canadian History. The Upper Canada rebellion of 1837 was more important as it led to Durham reports of 1838. Basically out of these reports came the notion of responsible government. That allowed Canadian government to handle its own local affairs. The British still controlled the foreign policy. Another important milestone was 1931 Statute of Westminster as it allowed Canada to have full legal freedoms. Canada could now choose its own foreign policy without the interference of The British. These events were more relevant to Canadian History than July 1st. But, we get fireworks today so it is all right. Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians. Let’s cherish our freedoms and work hard to create an even better nation-state.
This is a super quick post on my thoughts on what is going on in USA.
First of all DOMA was deemed unconstitutional. This means same sex couples have the right to get married just like straight couples. YAY! This news was such a sweet surprise.
Then. I heard that Governor Rick Perry decided to call second special session to pass one of the most restrictive abortion laws in Texas. This especially sucks because the awesome Senator Wendy Davis just defeated it last night. This seriously caused me heartburn. Not kidding. Why you gotta pee on my parade Texas?
Alberta is going through massive floods and other extreme weather. Already three people lost their lives. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families. Please stay safe. We have family friends who live in Calgary and we are getting in touch with them to make sure they are safe.

BTW, I have been meaning to blog but had no time to even go on the internet for pleasure as it is extremely busy at the Law Firm. Sorry.
So it seems like GOP didn’t learn any lessons from the last Presidential election. A large number of women came out to vote against them after some of their members made comments like “legitimate rape.” They are still trying to pass legislation that will curtail a woman’s right to get an abortion. Now, I am a firm believer that sex education helps prevent unwanted pregnancies and actually reduces the probability of women needing an abortion. I would also add that I cannot see myself ever getting an abortion but that’s my personal feeling on the subject. I have no right to impose my beliefs on another woman’s body. So an idiotic politician named Michael Burgess opposes abortion because he has seen male fetuses masturbate. Yup, you read that right! In this day and age, people still believe a male fetus should have more rights than an adult woman.
Go embarrass your dad with this cheesy Bollywood song. I did a rendition of this song today and my dad’s face was priceless.
Me and my siblings write cheeky cards for my dad and this year my brother wrote the most awful yet extremely hilarious father’s day card using Google translator for Hindi. Instead of writing your son in Hindi, he wrote our son. Although that wasn’t the only mistake he made. Seriously though, appreciate your dad by giving him a nice present. They may not outwardly express it but they do enjoy getting a thoughtful present from their kids.
YAY! It is my brother’s birthday and already he is a young adult. Time flies so fast. He is so busy right now and actually working on an art project for Nuit Blanche. Happy Birthday Ladoo. Also promoting his blog because that’s what older sisters do. Designgute is a blog about photography so if you are into that, do not hesitate to click on the link.
