found it interesting the way writer,Chetan Bhagat divides indian society...and so true, any change could be acquired only by being inclusive of all and patiently explaining...not by shunning and ridicule...
First things first...From a long time, I have been wanting to ask all of you about Chetan Bhagat. And lo, here you bring it.
Chalo lemme read it and come back ...
Sorry. I am coming back so late. But honestly Hima, this is what I felt when I had all kinds of breakdown from my practical existence in 2005. Well Chetan Bhagat writes all that. At that time, I had lot of emotion, but I just did not what to do with that. I had no sense of direction. Then a year later, life gave us a new kind of experience. It was scary and horrific where how important MONEY is for SUSTENANCE and is also a DETRIMENT came afore. Lived through it and sailed through it. Still some issues keep dogging us.
I will safely say that...I have actually taken all kind of Sanyaas with the way I grew up, with all those ideals for country, family, society etc. I used to respect in a idealistic manner. But these days, I try to go beyond platform promoted idealism. As in somebody speaks, I want to just break it down to sheer reality. All I care these days is to feel anything that touches my heart, for I believe, only that will pull me back to society.
When I walked around Tarnaka streets all alone in 2011 India vacation, I looked at the old age homes opened, worldvisionindia.org office. Yes, I want to be part of anything that makes me serve people without getting into PLATFORM Debates and fights and yet, the person, I am, I know will do anything to fight and make it right. Because I have that fire in me. And my question looking at them as is the right place ? Is this the right time ?
So here I am thinking of working at least for another 5 years and by that time may find something which I can associate to and start by journey of supporting others through my knowledge. Itna to maine jaan liya apne baare mein, I am really capable of fighting for good, I just need a good team to be with them in dedication. I need that camaraderie and following, because the other reality of me is I am an independent person, spiritied and yet reticent, but live my life in its individualistic expression, I feel loved when friends appreciate me as that takes boredom out of life, which seems to kill me every minute (I was born like that...I just cannot stand boredom...so I keep my mind busy in thinking, and I am a passive leader in many ways, but very good commander in charge.
So I need some vehicle to get all this energy a focus, a mission...which though something in me will try to bury equally. This is my constant fight, and I just hope one day I smoothly flow into that direction when I see it there to embrace me.
The reality through that article...that is what i see and that is one of the reason, why instead of listening to media channels, I see these soaps...because this is the place, I see the Class Four and Three driven TRP, The Class Two Bucks. Yes, there is no Class One here. It will never be there. Class One brute force is felt only by those who have seen their clout. And fortunately and unfortunately, me and my family have seen it. All this gives a new perspective, even when I am sitting on this side of world with absolutely nothing to do.
All I say is...almost 4 decades, you have now this sense of balance. Another 3 decades before you go away from this world...a lot you can do. Let's see where I go. And more importanly, the fear in me will never go away, until I take the plunge. So waiting for the blessed plunge.
This man Chetan Bhagat is an IIM product and has been a successful business executive. Now he is retired and became a writer. I would love to read his books and see what kind of person he is. And there let me end my ramble.
Thank you Hima.
