One could imagine that, because Christians are anti-life, they would celebrate what their religion teaches is the end of life. But even death – as well as life – is taboo, another reason to be miserable. Would you like to comment?
Maneesha, life and death are not separate. If you deny life, you will have to deny death. If you accept and rejoice in life, you will rejoice and celebrate in death. They are not separate things, but two sides of the same coin.
You cannot have one side of a coin and throw away the other side, it is impossible. The coin has to have two sides. You can have both or you can throw both.
I have both. Christianity has thrown both. They have thrown life away, they have thrown death away. Both have become taboo. Neither can they rejoice in life, nor can they rejoice in death.
I rejoice in life, I rejoice in death, because life and death are just small episodes in the eternal pilgrimage, the eternal caravan that goes from eternity to eternity.

Peanut Punghi is studying to be a Christian monk at the So-So Celibate Seminary in Pune. But Punghi is not really bright, and is shocked when he hears the story about how Jesus was nailed to the cross by the Jews.
That afternoon, all the new recruits are sent out into the Pune streets to practice preaching. Punghi is walking down M.G. Road, looking for a good spot to do his Bible-bashing, when suddenly he sees Irving Saperstein, a Jewish tourist, haggling over the price of a big bunch of bananas.
Enraged, Preacher Punghi kicks over the banana cart and jumps on top of Irving, knocking him to the ground. Then he beats on Irving until Irving finally shouts, “Stop! Stop! Why are you beating me?”
“Because,” replies Punghi, huffing and puffing, “you Jews killed Jesus on the cross!”
“Hey!” says Irving, “it is not my fault! That happened two thousand years ago!”
“So what?” snaps Punghi. “I only just heard about it!”
