That Irrational Sensibility..

"What is the thing that makes us believe, rather spell-bounded-ly, in the people who claim themselves to be the men of God..or the GODMEN as they call themselves!???..Why do for god's sake we tend to compromise our rationality for the sake of supporting something terribly ludicrous.???.."

These were the questions that gorily vivisected my mind when I saw even the likes of honorable Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam or even our very own Little Master being so much attached to Sathya Sai Baba.. I kept thinking..that if Uneducated-ly Unmotivated people or superstitiously disgruntled people, seeking hope for living without trying to contribute in their own lives with at least some amount of constructive effort, believe in some 'MAGICAL' personality who is helping them find solace or some hope in their so called bewildered life..then it still makes sense..but when the majority of the bourgeoisie..educated middle fact even the their sympathy and their immensely obtrusive belief in such hypocrites..then How the hell DOES IT MAKE ANY VALID RATIONAL SENSE?????..

After a lot of conflicting brainstorming and research, I landed on to this final conclusive concept: That it is actually the rising and affluent Indian middle class’s craving for an alternative spirituality more in sync with their new lifestyle, which they have adopted, thanks to the British Rule in India!, which has resulted in a highly competitive "Godman Market" in the country..

See..we live in a fast paced world..where we hardly have any time to give or to spend with our own selves..All of us have a bucket list..where we put in the things that we seek to accomplish in our life time..Now considering that we humans don't control our lives and consequently don't know if we will be able to accomplish even a single target..!..This situation of uncertainty infuses the irresistible greed of attaining the certainty of the events...It makes us humans think.."What if there would have been a way to achieve everything that I want in my life..I know I, being a mortal human being, can't do much but what if somehow I can......."..

Now you know the case scenario..And to aid this come our own..the very respectable and honored GODMEN..who say "Don’t bother your head about the larger questions, just trust in me, and everything will be okay...".. I say..How the hell will people, blinded by their desires, not believe in someone who is promising them to reach to their respective destinations by just believing in him.??...It's a hit-hit formula..and will definitely work, especially in our country, if used deftly to hypnotize an already semi-conscious and bucket-list-burdened superstitious Indian bourgeoisie...!

And so it is..the GODMEN are here to stay my friends..they will keep getting the vote of the masses..the acceptance of the crowd.. Now..there is no logic to this very concept..But it is actually the illogical that often works...!..and is working..Isn't it!??..

And when they say.."IF I COULD...."

They say if they could..
hold the sun and walk through the wood..
They would have rolled back the pins of the clock..
and reverberated the sounds of blissful talks..
the time that they laughed and spent with the ones they loved..
They would have held the moments and made those seconds pause..
for they feared the time would not be the same..
Those moments..those times..would be lost in the memory lanes..

They say if they could..
clinch the stars and get to the moon..
they would have gone to the world of abstraction..
where the reality would have been enslaved by the imagination..
and then they would have driven in the back gear..
and parked themselves upon the happiness' sphere..
forever and till eternity they would have been..
only with the ones they the world so mean..

They dream of the world unreal..
They wish a lot for their wishes to be real..
They want the happiness forever..they say if they could..
have got it then their lives would..
have been DIFFERENT..than this normal life's play..
They never are sure though..for the life is a vicious roulette..

They desire..and just the 'Wishing' they do..
like the tinkers they perch upon the hope..
and sing the songs of 'IFs' and 'ORs'..
They dream..and they dream..they remain in the very same world..
which they wish to be true..and exuberance cluttered..

They fail to see that the TIME..
is not human..and is not divine..
It knows no understands no love..
It flurries into the future..burning the past troves..
But it is the friend of an honest and humble 'CHANCE'..
which fortunately repeats..but only if you will want..
To the ones who live for the future and not in the past..
It promises to ease the pains..and raise the SUCCESS FLAG on the effort's mast..!


Why not believe that one day WE will..
hold the sun and walk through the wood..
WE can't roll back the time..but will make every second count..
to bring back the time the way WE want..
and will reverberate the sounds of blissful talks..
the time that WE laughed and spent with the ones WE loved..
WE can make them grander and more profound..
for WE believe the CHANCE will repeat..and bring US better luck and fame..
Those moments..those times..WE will recreate those memory lanes...
Again..and Again...and yes..Once Again..!

The Science of CONFIDENCE!

You will shake..You will shiver..
Your tongue will twist and won't trigger..
The words that must have been said..
The excuses that must have been delayed..
For the time once gone is irretrievable..
THE CONFIDENCE turns The Impossible to The Achievable..!

When I was a small kid in my school, I had a belief that the more I would raise my hand when teacher would ask a question to the class, the better impression I would have in front of the teacher!..The belief was so strong that I used to raise my hand even before teacher used to ask any question..for I believed that whatever question would be thrown upon me..I would successfully answer that..!..So much so that in all the Parents-Teachers Meetings, I always used to have only one complaint from my teachers.."He is Over-Confident.."..and mom and dad never asked me to "improve" upon the problem brought into their notice by my teachers..and so the problem persisted and rather got aggravated with my constant practice!..

As I grew up I developed some more traits like that..! I started believing that the more I would participate in the cultural activities..the more my teachers would appreciate me..And so I zealously participated in Singing..and Dancing..and debates and many other competitions..So many changes occurred..However, the complaint remained the same.."He is Over Confident.."..My parents still never ever tried to mold me..

I remember when I was in my 10th grade..I used to be one of the toppers..I was one of the most active guys in my class..and yes I still used to raise my hand as before..and yes I enjoyed the way I was..

However.. as I grew further..I began to realize that the way I behave in an overtly brisk way and the way I raised my hand even before the teacher would ask any question..didn't look decent!..and so..I stopped doing it..and then things changed..rather terribly..

My performance got deteriorated..I started scoring less..I even failed once in a subject in my terminal exams when I was in class 11..!..For the very first teachers had a different performance review to tell my parents..!..

"What has happened to your kid..??..He used to be so active in the class but now he remains silent..Even before asking any questions,he used to raise his hand..Though I believe that it is a sign of over confidence..but then..Over confidence is far more better than Lack of confidence..please take care of him..."..

After mom came to me..and she said the following words that will remain with me till eternity...

"Do you know what is the most important thing that defines the personality of a man??..It is the SELF CONFIDENCE..and a person is never born with it...but he gains it by practice and hard work..and so my is not an ART but a SCIENCE that must me tried and tested again and again..and should always be worked upon to attain better results..I never asked you to change your habit of confidently raising your hand because it showed your belief in your self..It showed that you were ready to face any hurdle..any problem..come what may..Always remember..your confidence in your own self defines you..and yes..Nothing Else Matters.."..

At that time..I did understand what she meant..but haphazardly..!..I could only conclude..that she wanted me to be more active and behave confidently..and so I did..!..I again started performing well..and yes I started enjoying the way I was..once again..!

Today..when I am able to understand the grandness of these words in the most enunciating way..I realize that how true my Mom was when she said those words to me..!..Our confidence defines it any situations and circumstances..

So it can be the time when we order food in a restaurant or when we are confronted with the challenging problems of shaping our careers..or be it any other scenario..The confidence boosts the performance..and it makes the surroundings favorable to us..People find it comfortable and pleasing to talk to a person who speaks articulately and confidently..It is always..and always..the Intelligent Briskness and THE CONFIDENCE we possess..that makes the difference..and yes it is a FACT..!..
