Where is the Indian?

Found an intresting its for you all..

A reality with a meaning
An American visited India and went back to America where he met his Indian friend and asked how did you find my country, the American said it is a great country with solid ancient history and immense rich with natural resources.
The Indian friend then asked, how did you find Indians?
Indians? Who Indians?
I did not find or met single Indian in India.
Who nonsense? Who else could you meet in india then?
The American then said ...
In Kashmir....I met a Kashmiri
In Panjab .... I met a Panjabi
In Bihar...Maharastra....Rajasthan...Bengal...Tamilnadu...Kerala...I met Bihari, Marathi, Marwadi, Bengali, Tamilian, Mallu...
In AP... I found Andhra & Telengana.....

Then I met
A Hindu
A Muslim
A Chirstian
A Jain
and many more... but not a single Indian did I meet.
Think guys
The day would not be far when indeed we would become a collection of nation states as some regional anti-national politicians want.
Remember... We are Indians first....We are Indians at last.

One Planet - Together We - Loving Each other

It was republic day and shops are closed, roads are deserted and the whole city is in additional security mode. Ironical. On the days which represent Freedom we fear attacks. On the days which meant for celebrations...we are advised to stay back at home. I find it so stupid and hard to get convinced that we are attacking each other in the name of religion, caste, race, Region, State, Country and what not. Wouldn't world be a better place if there are no boundaries. Probably then we would never have to deal with Telanga issue, kashmir issue, Northeast Issue, Tamil Tigers(Srilanka) issue, Gorkaland issue, Vidarbha(Maharastra) Issue, Palestina Issue, Iraq Issue and we would have never gone through World Wars. Instead of working together towards prosperity, we are competing with each other to be better than others from Individual level to religion level to country level. Do we need to identify another planet where there are humans to be called we are from (one planet)earth?
