In spite of the world history we have to stay in love.

stay in love

So much Pomp; such Magnificent and splendid appearance; grandeur……………….
But behind all this; who are they? Plunderers, mass murderers.

I am writing about the royals and am I wrong?

Ranjit Singh was crowned ruler of the Punjab region and willed the Kohinoor to the Jagannath Temple in Orissa from his deathbed in 1839. But after his death the British administrators did not execute his will.
And the diamond went to the Queen of England.

Can you wear something which is stolen and walk with pride?

But for the royals it a part of their life; it is in their blood

Did they not allow “legalized piracy”, to help finance their wars,
----the so called Privateers---the lawful pirates.

Francis Drake was England’s most famous privateer. Sharing his profits with Elizabeth I, who knighted him for his services.

The list of dictators who got political asylum after committing atrocities is large.

The sentence was rightly coined “If you kill one person, you go to jail; if you kill 20, you go to an institution for the insane; if you kill 20,000, you get political asylum.”

The cannibal Idi Amin--- The number of people killed as a result of his regime is estimated by international observers and human rights groups to range from 100,000 to 500,000. Spent his remaining life in all expenses-paid villa on the Red Sea in Saudi Arabia.

Pinochet-- of Chile  was eventually released without facing trial.

Jean-Bedel Bokassa, self-proclaimed emperor of the Central African Republic,. He was accused of murdering and sometimes eating those who criticised him, including 100 children who complained about the school uniforms they had to buy from his factory.
After being deposed and living in exile he returned to Africa and he was freed a few years later.

Pol Pot-- Cambodia the killing fields continued to lead the Khmer Rouge He died never having faced charges.

Ean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier--- President of Haiti, made millions from involvement in the drug trade and from selling body parts from dead Haitians, thousands of Haitians were killed or tortured, slipped quietly away to be granted asylum by France and live out his days among the luxury yachts and villas of the Cote d'Azur. {however currently facing charges in his own country}

The list goes on and on………..

If we start writing the atrocities committed by the American and Israeli rulers will this post ever end?

Even the so called peacekeepers-- the NATO war crimes are known to all.

The corporate crimes / the conspiracy theories / the crimes committed by the Catholic Church / what not-- want not.

 In spite of such world history we have to stay in love.

Life goes on…….

Today if you type “harry” in Google search you will be prompted to harry porter and not to harry Truman—the president who used nuclear weapons against civilian populations—Historic crime against humanity---the 2,00,000 most cruel deaths.

The world has long forgotten Harry Truman or the cruel Changez khan. But the world still bows in reverence in front of the one who carried his own cross.

he did it out of love and he taught the world the meaning of sacrifice.
