Aqsa talks about the deplorable condition of Muslim majority area in Delhi
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Walled cityÃ¢â‚¬? still continues to be the Ã¢â‚¬Å“safest muslim neighbourhood in IndiaÃ¢â‚¬? and probably for that reason the Ã¢â‚¬Å“walled city dwellersÃ¢â‚¬? are paying a huge price!
We don’t have good roadsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦its said that walled city is all about dingy streets, busy markets, butchers, and ignorant people!
Nobody wants to peep into the not-so-Delhi kind of a place that’s a big black spot on delhiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s posh neighbourhoods and markets. Only those who have a good taste in food visit the karimÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s which is famous for its chicken! Others treat walled city as if its not there!
During the time of the so called Ã¢â‚¬Å“emergencyÃ¢â‚¬? hundreds of houses were destroyed in the name of the master plan or sanjay gandhiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dream of making Delhi as good as Paris.
Those people are still waiting to get their share of walls! Some people who were lucky enough were allotted mcd flats but the condition of mcd flats in turkman gate area is not less than slums. When you stand there..its a scary experience..
People have learned to make this distinction between Ã¢â‚¬Å“old DelhiÃ¢â‚¬? and Ã¢â‚¬Å“new DelhiÃ¢â‚¬? so much so that children from Ã¢â‚¬Å“old DelhiÃ¢â‚¬? don’t get admissions to good schools in Ã¢â‚¬Å“new DelhiÃ¢â‚¬?.
The authorities blatantly give the reasonÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬?sorry we don’t take students from the walled cityÃ¢â‚¬?Ã¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬?rules are rulesÃ¢â‚¬?..
they can take students who live in noida..a city in haryana that just touches Delhi..but they cannot take students from the Ã¢â‚¬Å“walled cityÃ¢â‚¬?..MAY BE WE ARE NOT HUMANS OR NOT COMPATIBLE TO OUR NEW DELHI COUNTERPARTS!!!
One of my uncles is trying to get his daughter admitted to a convent just 20 mins from our placeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦but they gave the reasonÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬?we don’t take children from your areaÃ¢â‚¬?.
When I joined hansraj one of the top most colleges in India I was reminded time and againÃ¢â‚¬Â¦that I belong to Ã¢â‚¬Å“old DelhiÃ¢â‚¬?Ã¢â‚¬Â¦but now I care a damn!
The rest of the people only talk of Ã¢â‚¬Å“walled cityÃ¢â‚¬? when they want to compare it with the lavish Ã¢â‚¬Å“new DelhiÃ¢â‚¬?..
and for most of themÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬?old DelhiÃ¢â‚¬? is just not there!
Old city represented is often represented by orthodox Muslim families and the hi-tech city represented by modern and liberal families. I got these pictures from HT. There are many noteworthy features about those pictures. They not only represent different dressing but they also reveal the economic backwardness of Muslims; the boy in the first image has a kite but the girl in the other picture has a doll! Lack of modernity is represented by no background music the first picture. Another striking feature of the first picture is the position of women, notice how they have been pushed to the background whereas the blonde with an umbrella is leading in the second picture; an indication how patriarchal system is prevalent among Muslims. The family in the second picture has a uniformed butler but no such luxury for the family in the first Picture. Notice also the number of children in the first pic as compared to the second one. Thank God they didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t show more than one woman in the first pic!
Well to be frank I have observed this difference in every city I have been; Muslim majority areas are backward as compared to others, they usually have narrow dirty and filthy streets with people in traditional dresses. People there are generally jobless and so small groups of flirts and perverts is a common sight, they flaunt and generally dream about lavish living and how they wanna break free from the orthodoxies. Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan and Amir Khan are role their role models. They try to follow them in their dressing sense with whatever they have at their disposal but most sadly they cannot visualize the burqa clad women to be their sexy heroines. Their whole lives revolve around a virtual world they have carved out for them and in their language they are Kool! Then there are married men who find it hard to control their fetish desires (read it again if you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t understand..that fetish word is the key) and often end up making a cricket team! They then marry off their daughters to some sheikh in gulf or anyone with a job abroad.
