So my Facebook feed tells me it’s “Father’s Day”.
Well, I am old enough now to be cynical about these things but I don’t want to spoil anybody’s fun. If people want to spend a day feeling warm and fuzzy about how much their dads have done for them, no harm done. I will even play along..
In fact, here’s TWO wonderful things my dad taught me that I remember every moment of my life.
(1) There is nothing free in this world.
(2) Nothing is ever accomplished by brute force; you have to use your mind.
Makes me feel warm and fuzzy! Thanks dad! I guess I am not cynical after all; and I am really happy about that.
But guess what? Inside the mind of every elite journo there is a little microprocessor that is capable of taking pretty much anything and turning it into an occasion for Hinduphobia. Because when it comes to hating Hindus, it is always open season.
Who knew that even something as simple and innocuous as “Fathers’ Day” could turn into a vehicle for insulting Hindus?
I wonder who would like to have a dad like the one Jesus had. His father abandoned him even before birth and then got him killed in an extremely cruel way for the sins of others! That’s just horrific.
I wonder if India Today would have the balls to point that out.
But, I can better that one.
You know the kind of dad I would NEVER want? Here, read this.
Yeah, I would never want a dad who swears “unwavering loyalty to Mussolini”.
What do you think, India Today? Dare to write about this one?
