Tiny Solutions...

I have been advised from one of my coach cum buddy that 'being a writer I must not write solutions' because we are too young to find solutions for this massive thousand years old world. I however not fully satisfied with his suggestion but till I am not getting why I should not I will not write solutions...

"But then what should I write?" a genuine question ran

"As as writer we must sensitize the social issues... let them (readers) find out what could be the solution" He replied... "Mankind flows like massive river..." a pause "...while many rocks, mountains and forests defines the direction of its flow, it finally happens to reach the destination... and gradually keeps changing the path of flow to wherever that can be more obvious and suitable to the nature of river"

As he said, by being a socially concerned human being, we can only be the rocks or bushes but we cannot become mountains or forests to shape the path of mankind. It is not a one man's art!

He beautifully explained to me that by all the capacity of reading so many books, seeing so many issues and discussing so many great thinkers, we have only seen the tip of the berg that actually exists beneath the water. He said to me "If you are able to conceive solution than perhaps you are not able to understand the problem"

"But then what should we do?" I asked while irking "Than how Gandhi, Tarressa, Lincoln, Lenin, Marks have done that?"

"What all they had done are all tiny solutions... a lot more is needed" He replied.
Everyone will come to us to suggest what can't be done and what should not be done but it is only us who can decide what can be done. Doesn't matter big or small, I am not going to get bothered. Be it worthy or worthless... I am not even going to consider.  The right time has arrived or not is not my check but one thing! That I will get out of my life for sure and that is... laying the foundation of quality education accessible to every human being of the world for NO money...

I have seen the power of education... I witnessed it... As Lincoln said "just let them know they are slaved, shackles will be broken". Education is that power aware people that they are slave. Only education will set us Free.

"Humanity can never see profit as 'virtue' because quest of profit over exploits resources not uses them" Education can only reset the mankind back to welfare from this existing mantra of profit...

और अगर

कहीं पे हम नहीं मिलते,
कहीं पे तुम नहीं मिलते। 
अगर हम तुम नहीं मिलते, 
तो हमें ये गम नहीं मिलते।।

अगर राहें बदल जाती,
या मंजिल बदल जाती। 
न कारवां ये संग चलता,
तो जली किस्मत बदल जाती।।

काष राहों में हम,
तुम साथ नहीं चलते।
कहीं पे हम नहीं मिलते,
कहीं पे तुम नहीं मिलते।। 

सफ़र में सादगी होती,
न मिलने की चाह भी  होती। 
न होते हम जुदा मिलकर,
न ग़मों की आह सी होती।।

जो दामन तुम कल झिड़क देती, 
तो हम तुम आज नहीं रोते।।

कहीं पे हम नहीं मिलते,
कहीं पे तुम नहीं मिलते।।।

जले दिया ...जले बाती ,
बस उजालों के ये दो साथी।
दुआयें  थीं मेरे घर में, 
जो तुम आती तो क्या पाती।

सफ़र बाकीं अगर रहता ,
तो इरादे और भी होते।
मगर ...
तुम्ही को तुम नहीं मिलते, 
हमी को हम नहीं मिलते।।
और अगर 
हमी हम नहीं मिलते,
तो किसी को ये गम नहीं मिलते।

It's a very old poem of my college days, just it happened that I recalled. A lot of it seems true! Isn't it? 

How fat is too fat for Indian Wedding

Majority of the guests who come in any wedding functions are actually there to compare how much their host has spent on it NOT to bless the couple. If you consider such guests as your part of society, please don't invite me ever!

Being fat is bad but so is NOT true about Indian Weddings! Even Bollywood will shy off from the Showoff of Indian wedding maniacs. Indian weddings are shamelessly obese, last week alone India witnessed 10000 wedding knot functions in one day! 

Interestingly 1.31 billion Indian sees marriage as a very special thing of there life and at the very same time 'Market' sees it as a great business opportunity! While my dear MBA class humans sees money here I have some more sad concerns. 

Desires! If not fulfilled become demons... such weddings induce such offensive desires of those who are not capable to manage such expenditures but can't bear to be disgusted as second class host. Some of you will argue that it is not the matter of concern for those who can manage such expenditures and that is how this market driven society defends this race of maniacs every time whenever such ethical challenges surface.

1.2 billion humans of the world are hungry. Only 8 countries in the world are such where people die of hunger. India is the capital of those countries. If a person gets one slice of a bread and a liter of water in every fifth day he/she will at-least never die of hunger. How much will this cost? INR2.00 only! In delhi average per plate dinner charge is INR4000.00. Average cost of one wedding card is INR14.00. Fireworks, lightening, parking places, flowers, mehndi, DJ, stage decorations, special effects... for what? On top of it this wedded couple is not guaranteed of living happy life. Whatever is special for one couple turns out to be curse. Traffic congestion, Firework pollution, Noise Pollution, Wastage of Food (So if you know 6000 people die of hunger DAILY).

Why aren't we learning that everyone those who dance in our wedding are not dancing for our happiness. They are here to witness how better showbiz have you done in compassion to where they danced last night. Many of those who are dining in your wedding are not dining to quench hunger but to explain you how bad caterer you have chosen or how disgusting it is as compared to their last dinner party. All those who are lined up at the stage having flowers in hand (by killing innocent flowers and traded it in exchange of INR200-5000 ) are not here to bless you but to peep in and see what all you've got a dowry or how well your dads have spent on you in comparison to any of your relatives. On top of these truths if you say "we're bound to live in this society and so are bound to do so" then friends all I can say "They care a damn you live or die" these people talk on same topic wedding or funeral doesn't matter. Corruption, power, politics and showoff are the issues they talk upon be it birthday, journey, funeral, wedding or shopping. If you call them as the member of your society, I politely refuse any of your wedding ceremony invitations. God Bless You!
