Foreword: The title of this post is inspired from the book "The Andromeda Strain" by Michael Crichton and has no reference to the book.

Popular beliefs shove it down our throat that Jesus died on the cross paying for others sins while we have contentions that negate the phenomenon what with some claimants referring to the shrine of Yuz Asafa in Hazratbal as the resting place of Yesu or some referring to the Jesus bloodline or the existence of some of his descendants in France. Some debunk the existence of Jesus, while some others debunk the crucifixion and some others the resurrection. While this post is about none of this contentious material, what it seeks to address is the Jesus Strain in our DNA.

The Messiah complex is built, nurtured and fostered. It's kept alive as one more business axiom of the industry. Sacrifice, mercy and piety are it's goalposts. It's true that all of us have a small seed of a messiah complex within us and that this "messiah gene" or the "Jesus Strain" keeps rearing it's invisible head every now and then, where  we want to play or "prey" at being the popular iconoclastic idiom of #BeingJesus, where  we pay for someone else's sins or pay for the crimes that we did not commit.

It's considered Noblesse oblige, of showing high calibre, chivalrous, valorous and principled if one sacrifices themselves for their honour, or a code that is beyond #BeingHuman or normally human. Selflessness and benevolence are it's creed. #BeingJesus is the phenomena where one does not think beyond being an empathic taking in all the ugliness that is thrown at them and fulfilling every whim and fancy of every twit and tatter.

In reality, rarely in the current panorama does one find a place for such refined deeds of passion to the Jesus creed. However, popular fiction tries to borrow from time-to-time the Jesus phenomenon to drive home a point that the makeup of man is not complete without sacrifice, nobility, honor, and dying for other's deeds. It's built into the framework of the "super" man that he be someone who can put his life down for his loved ones or those that he considers to be needy, irrespective of what it does to him or to those that believe in him or his innocence.

Should popular fiction try to reiterate the existence of the Jesus strain or should it fight this prevalent thought and showcase selfishness as the highest virtue? If we go by Randian ideals, we would all be dying only to keep our values rather than die for those that wish to sacrifice us and those that expect us to put our life in line for the fulfilment of their goals and needs. It would advocate man's only virtue or highest ideal, duty or calling, and only creed to be the fulfilment of his promise to himself of his full potential and the achievement of his highest potential. It would rule out all other clauses and subclauses in the human architecture. It would call for an all out effort to free the "super" "man" from the "Jesus Christ" the Superstar" Messiah Complex or to stop the release of the Jesus Strain from the DNA to corrupt the bloodstream like a virus that spreads and to let this strain be contained or quarantined by brute force through medical intervention. 

Mrityunjay, the character in Ek Boond Ishq has a good amount of dosage of the Jesus Strain, is it time to call a halt on the spread of that gene and contain it and put a stop, close the door on the Messiah Complex? Do contribute your thoughts and ideas on this...and keep watching Ek Boond Ishq at 8:30 PM IST on Life Ok TV...the saga of the New Age Jesus aka Mrityunjay Singh Shekawat.

Holy Heavens RR...you are just amazing!...

Loved the read...and yes MJ is playing Messiah big time here...with him being shot again yesterday he did it again.

My question is would it take another rape and murder by the REAL culprit for MJ to get rid of his Messiah complex? For me that would be sad...

Thanks you so much DD.

Oh yes! Imagine there is another rape and another victim? What would it take for MJ to break his promise? If the target is going to be Tara?
