This is small story from the Vedic era describing about a cobbler who wanted to be better placed in his next birth and accordingly prayed at Bhairoghat temple near Dashaswamedh ghat close to the Ganges river. This temple is mythologically known for granting the worshippers the type of birth they wanted when they are born next time. One day the cobbler went to the temple with the resolve to return only after the Deity consents to his wish. He prayed in a sequence asking for a king in his next birth but withdrew it on the thought that king’s life is very risky and his life is always in danger. Like that he made a request to become the king’s Prime Minister but that too he himself turned down on the pretext that every Prime Minister is supposed to be a chamcha to the boss the king. Then he opted for a tiger but that too was dropped by him realising that some day an elephant may crush him to death using his heavy legs and the trunk. Like this he continued requesting for dozens of the choices but was unable to stick to one out of his list. In the end he had no option but to request the Deity after obeisance to allow him to take birth as a cobbler only and it is from this point onwards that the saying “Banda mochi ka mochi” did emerge. Any live being has the same discipline to follow and it is only utterly foolish to hanker for the fancy of different genres.This applies to all live beings uniformly with no discriminations of any kind
Here, there and every where, there are troubles and troubles with no limit causing problems not only to the humans but equally any live being on the globe. This has been a topmost item on agenda of great intellectuals knowing fully well that this runs in association with the eternity that has no end. Count Leo Tolstoy, the great writer and author of ‘Anna Kerenina’, a novel recognised as one of the ten best novels in the world. The book is based on a love theme remotely indicating reflections of his own married life. He opined on a topic “Why there is trouble in the world” mentioning that it is ‘Love’ that is the root cause of troubles every where and he stuck to observation as such all his life. His version could be correct if not fully at least partly as there have been other people who too frugally endorsed him saying ‘…..’Is jahaan me teen saarey khurafaat ki jad hain –zar, zan, jamein’ (three things –money, woman and land are in the root of every trouble). The whole theme like this is an eternal matter and it is the one that would continue till the universe ends. Humans can satisfy themselves by talking amongst themselves but none can go beyond that.
Imagine you are in the midway of typing out your thoughts fully engrossed on your theme and all of a sudden it goes berserk with an spree of errors awe fully spoiling your work shattering your thought process with the result that the very script is totally spoiled. In my case I take the situation as terribly excruciating and more so when necessary repairs are not readily available. Highly puzzled I get upset and the thought process I had built up in my mind on the relative theme goes diminishing. Mind is not a device to store the action points and themes beyond a certain limited frame. There is no big a purpose in elaborating the topic except that of sharing even a trivial most anxiety with my beloved readers. Happy Diwali.
In a supersonic age like it is there every thing stands transparently visible, nay exposed, to a naked eye with certain areas much more exceedingly making it difficult at times to differentiate between truth, half truth and an utter lie. Some child throws a pebble in a water pool and reporters from some press or the other are there to cover the news as if there is a bomb blast and the funniest part of it is when a camera man comes across a drowning person asking him as to how he takes the catastrophic event. Ganga barrage in Kanpur (U.P.) is a common sight for such eventualities. No doubt these channels have great role to play in building up the nation providing requisite. health to it in relation to development and overall growth of the country. Facebook sponsorers claim it to be a revolution in itself followed by Twitter. Yes, credit certainly goes to them to broaden much feasible a spectrum of conversational value facilitating quite smooth a platform where point to point contacts are just so easy and handy. But it is not that the great plus factors like these don’t suffer from colossal minuses much worse than media in general including news papers and periodical magazines resort to. Most of the print space goes to ads at the cost of the readers. If you are facebook enthusiast, it forms a task for you to get to the relative message straight, you may rather have to run between good morning, good evening, shubh ratri and the like. I wonder as to how people are able to spare hours of precious time in searching this thing and that and how it is that the users don’t keep it for other tasks, positive and with intrinsic worth. If some one goes for updating his/ her photograph in the face book, there is a huge number of people to recognise the same as if it is a very big event concerning the whole world. No doubt social media is most powerful a tool to promote a climate for people to get closure to each other forming a strong society in in a bigger measure leading requisite missions.
