This post is dedicated to the HINDU taliban- the so called Sri Ram Sena (forgive them O Lord!!) Pramod Muthalik a seemingly fame seeker who is modelling himself on the other self styled cultural cops of this country like the Thackerey and his clan.The Sangh has now disowned the stupid gang, but people seem to be hell bend on teasing him to glory... Pink chaddi campaign is the latest and here I am wishing every one including this new saviour of my 3000 plus year culture, a happy valentines day....

Perils of a Catholic Upbringing !!!

From a forwarded mail... It IS NOT MY STORY >>>>

As I walked down the busy sidewalk, knowing I was late for Mass, my eye fell upon one of those unfortunate, homeless vagabonds that are found in every city these days.
Some people turned to stare. Others quickly looked away as if the sight would somehow contaminate them.

Recalling my old pastor, Father Mike, who always admonished me to 'care for the sick, feed the hungry and clothe the naked,' I was moved by some powerful inner urge to reach out to this unfortunate person.

Wearing what can only be described as rags, carrying every worldly possession in two plastic bags; my heart was touched by this person's condition.Yes, where some people saw only rags, I saw a true, hidden beauty.

A small voice inside my head called out, 'Reach out, reach out and touch this person!'

So I did...&....

I won't be attending Mass for some time.
