Umeed, Hope, Espoir, Hoop, Hoffnung, Speranza, Esperança; July 20 2009

This comes out as a result of reflection upon a lot of stuff that I have read.

The power of human words cannot, ever, be undermined. That we possess the ability to make the impossible possible is not an exaggerated phrase. It is very much central to how humans tend to do things. It is all in the head! Yes, that is what I think.

For us to develop and strive, being pragmatic is fairly understandable. But what that pragmatic approach needs is something to supplement its implementation. That something is what a person thinks. That something is what goes on in the mind. That something is how the issue at hand is perceived by the person. That something is in the head.

Observing our society through different interactions with it, I have formed my opinion, which is, as always, open to rejection/disapproval, that being so overwhelmed by the world, we have started seeing even the possible as impossible.

Pessimism has crept into our society fast. Despair never looms alone. It is a direct consequence of happening events. In our society, for example, things such as debate on religion, economic strife, lack of confidence in the leadership are all factors that have played their parts in bringing out pessimism in its true form from many of us. To many of us, life is ok as it is. For many of us, the phases where one loses confidence and deprecation rules over our souls are more frequent than the frequency of alternating current perhaps. Bad attempt at utilizing my scientific knowledge?

What we really need is a breath of fresh air in the garden tormented to death by the winter winds. Hope is the word supplementing smart actions. Optimism is the fresh air. Pessimisn needs to be done away with. WE CAN is the phrase. WE CAN'T must be out-fashioned.

The Basic Question; August 21 2009

A sense of despair grips me as I push these buttons to put into words what my mind thinks. Whether it will be coherent or not, is not something I care about right now.

I wonder these days where it must have gone wrong. And the answer, like it always is, is that human nature is human nature after all. My mind thinks and while it does, everything seems surreal. That my mind would be a slave to these thoughts, was something I never actually cared about. So what is egging me on to write? The basic question! You idiot, what is that basic question? Was getting there, you evil side of mine!

Don’t mind that.

So the basic question is about the standards of our society. Why must anyone suffer? Why must someone very talented, born in a poor family, be exposed to mental trauma and suffering while someone very dumb, born in a rich family, gets innumerable opportunities to excel?
Just because his family doesn’t have a few rupees?

Come to think of it, that is the reason!

We are driven by money and that my friends, rids us of our status as human beings. That, my friends, makes us the wild beasts that we have transformed into. We have been blinded, and now money seems a good enough tool to carve out the future of people. We have set a world order where money drives everything. Human Beings were worthy of more.

So we (beasts), that are the former human beings, had an alternate route. That route was to ensure welfare for all. That route was to ensure that each household gets that window of opportunity to live a better life. But what did we do? We limited the access to the window of opportunity, making it available to only those who have money.

More to follow as it comes.
