[Disclaimer : Once again ...this array of words comes from a totally Personal Viewfront .....all views expressed is from an out of touch blogger.....bear it...read through it .....coz sometimes even Idiots do teach lessons .... ;) ... ]
I was never born an Environmental freak…
I don’t indebt my life to the Environ or my Natural Surrounding….
Because I always asked myself this Question….
‘ Did the Earth stand Still when I was Born ??? ‘
NO !!! The Environment never cared a damn for the birth of another creature in its already Deteriorating body….
But one thing I’m sure about is that my FAMILY and many of my RELATIVES and WELL WISHERS really stood still (leaving all the Work they had) ... And ..were they trees ???? Were they Water bodies ???? Were they pandas ???? OR were they Clouds ????
No ….but all these who paused their routine to Welcome me were all having one thing in common…
They were all PEOPLE !!!!!
Nothing in the World can trigger as much a Flow of Emotion as another Person ….
No plant of your Garden ,domestic Pet ,favourite Food ,bedtime Novel ,addictive Video/PC game can make you feel the Void created by a Pending Response from someone 'Special' …
Your Dog/Pet may well be able to feel your Sadness/Happiness/Anger …but never will it feel the adrenaline rush through
Similarly Your favourite Plant will regulate its growth on the amount of water and sunlight it receives..not based on the happiness or love u bestow upon it..
Your favourite Novel might be a 'Bunch of binded paper' for someone else …OR an interesting Video/PC game might be an Educational “Crash Course” for some sceptic Elders ….
…But that Person whom you had send the msg expressing a “certain feeling” will still remain ‘SPECIAL’ …really Special….
N especially if you are awaiting a response …then the Connection Deepens …
This is the Connection between PEOPLE ….
Let me not bug you with evidences …I’ll let
‘ There was a Sportsperson very talented in the sport he/she played. He/She had qualities a notch higher than his/her competitors .He/She turned Pro at a reasonably young age .And no sooner did the Transition (Amateur to pro) take place than he/she started winning competitions .He/She won whatever Silverware he/she competed for .He/She became a class act and was talked about worldwide .Fame beckoned .But with fame came a Truckload of Media Attention .Suddenly his/her life became an Open Book .There were some Family problems .Every family has probs .But in her case the issue became a Universal Gossip topic .Thanks to the media …News was out …He/She had Divorced ..and to make things Worse ,even had a Bust up with his/her family and thus even moved out of her own Family..
..But on the Sports circuit his/her achievements remained untouched .But there was a difference in his/her support staff..it would now have only her coach to cheer at tournaments .But by now he/she infact became a Class-Apart act ..
More trophies were raised ..more Prize Money poured in ..The Media again made him/her a DemiGod .By now he/she had achieved about everything a sportsperson could in his/her Sport .Money was not a Bother .Fame was Persistent .Fans were Multiplying .But the Problem was that he/she was still in his/her mid 20’s . .
One started asking questions….Some were as follows ..
Q) Now that the pinnacle has been reached …what would he/she play for ??
Q) ..any monetary Problems ???
Q) Is it only fo the MOOLAH ???
Q) But ..all this ‘Been there ..done that’ ..whom will he/she share With ????
…the last one might have really struck her mind I guess ….Whom would he/she Actually share his/her happiness/achievements with ??? ……an strike it Did !!!
One day…after a recent mega Success at a big tourney he/she called a Press Conference (PC) …
The events that unfolded at the PC just put every person there n in front of the TV in an emotional Catch-22 situation …
It was a Shocker …he/she had announced his/her RETIREMENT from the Sport becoming the First ever no.1 player in that sport to hang up….
OK this was the Electric Bolt …but further revelations at the PC just moved each n every fan of his/her .
He/She cited the Reason behind his/her decision was plain n simple ..”He/She had got her Happiness back..” ..it was arguably the only thing Missing in his/her life…
When asked How ???
He/She replied while beaming that his/her Family had United to be by the side of his/her ailing Father…Priceless indeed was the Smile on his/her face …
Never had I seen anyone bid Farewell to a thing they loved the most with such Happiness …
It was just the Jigsaw puzzle of the PEOPLE of his/her family that he/she had to Sort to find back the Deserted happiness.
The key to his/her Joy (which proved tonbe gr8tr than him/her career Successess) just lied in the PEOPLE who were closest to him/her….not the Trophies or Million $s…. ‘
N patient readers ….this was not a Story ….this was actually a Real Incidence .. The very person mentioned in this story is of one of my favourite Sportspersons..
Female Tennis Legend – Justine Henin Hardenne…
Being a fan of this gr8 persona …I would just give a Salute to the Realisation of this ‘One Woman Army’ ,who took the world by storm all by herself .Whatever she did on the Tennis court was Remarkable..Things that made us Cheer. But what she did off the Court was one which even the strongest of PEOPLE can’t dare to do …i.e.
TO ASK FORGIVENESS….. It was indeed a very very BIIG thing….
Some would feel that Asking Forgiveness is No big deal ….But my point is different….
I don’t think anyone of us would ever hesitate Asking Forgiveness from GOD : who we all Know is not an Entity that is Physically present …
So….we Sin…then ashamedly join our hands in forgiveness ….feel Guilty …..then after a few days bury the Guilt and start doing the same folly like bread n butter once again …. N the cycle goes on ….coz we have only an Omnipresent (GOD) entity to fear …
But let me check you ….
-->> How many of us do a Sin on Anyone and directly go to the person and ask Forgiveness ????
For example : Have you ever said Sorry to a Toddler u made Cry ????
Have you tried to Apologize to a Classmate u Slapped in a Fit of Anger ???
Have you Ever Apologized to the Examiner under whose supervision you Copied ???
Have you Apologized to your spouse for a few False promises you made before marriage ??
Have you Apologized for every Fake Deed you did to just hear your GF’s “yes” to your Proposal ???
Have you ever Apologized to the Batsman you had bowled an Intentional “No-ball” to prevent his landmark ???
Have You ever Apologized for the Goal you tactfully but Illegally scored using
….These and many more are some silly Real life examples where we don’t seem to possess an aorta of Strength to go straight up face-to-face , one-on-one and say ‘SORRY’ !!!
Just Try it for once …you will Feel better…..Real better ….
But why is it so ….Why such a Peculiar “Loss of Strength” while facing a Similar Entity (i.e. Another Person)…
It’s a Simple theory….Theory of (Repulsion) Avoiding …..
Theorem : The More we Avoid a person …the more likely the Topic is Done and Dusted…
Inference : This theorem actually really holds True 90% of times….because People are Sooooo busy now a days ……
But Why not Take A Chance ???
This is a Question logged in the Fictional Book called “Eternal Mysteries of Human Behaviour” …
The only MAJOR INFERENCE with my Silly Brain I can make is that …ahem ahem ….(Take a Deep Breath ..) :
· We just don’t wanna lose Connection between 2 PEOPLE or between Different PEOPLE in General
But is it that Complicated with GOD ???? …. No !!!
We just Sin ….Apologize to the Almighty …Light a Candle / Diya …n its Done and Dusted (Only in our Minds) ….
That’s the difference ….
THAT’S the Effect of PEOPLE … f olks !!!!!
…….By now a Fictitious Bell must have Rung in your Head …And you must be Wandering why this Extremely bugging,dark,pessimistic,useless Blogger always tries to paint his Canvas using examples from the WORLD OF SPORTS ???
My reply would be - that if you have been an Attentive / aware reader enough hitherto ..then the Answer to your question is just related to the topic I’m blurting my Emotions on …..
Sports….why Sports ?????? Is Sports my Life ??
But tell me …would there be any sport without any Competitors ????
Folks …its PEOPLE who make Sports …..
Roger Federer Completes Tennis …every Racer swears by Schumi/Senna/Fernando …
Sachin has maintained Cricket’s Global Appeal …..Tiger Woods created a Storm In and the Golf scene …. Valentiono Rossi has become a Speed Icon (moto GP ,F1 ,Rallying) …Football cannot live without its naughty boys Cristiano and Wayne …
Bryant /Jordan make Basketball …..ARod is the Homerun GOD ….. the Influences are plenty……
Its actually a real different world created by the above and many more PEOPLE ….
So where does this young “SpunKo” fit in this Magical World ???
Or have I been hypnotised by anyone from that Land ???
No mates….Chill …its just the fact that the ‘Default Magnetic Aura’ of the Sporting World has a Composition similar to the ‘Magnet’ hidden somewhere inside Me (I’ve never searched for it…(..busy guy …lazy guy ..whatever )……But this doesn’t change/affect me…..No…..
It just makes me a bit more ‘Translocated’ into the Lives of these PEOPLE ….
That’s why the Thousands of Questions or assertions Several People Throw on me (Including my Close‘uns) like …
..Stop watching these matches…..Cricket will spoil your career….
Are you gonna jump inside the TV ??? ….I’ve never seen you study with the same Interest u show while watching Manchester United play…..What is the Manchester United Squad doing in your college Rough Book ???? ….Why Do you have Schumacher’s wallpaper on your
At least these claims will be laid to Rest post this blog ….I Hope ….n I promise you…you can Try to bend me as till your Lungs Swell …But I Wont change … ( i.e. I still may be physically present @home …but my mindspace will be Standing at the Stretford End of “Old Trafford” ; My fingers may be Jotting down Notes… but they wouk always Itch to sketch A Racing car or chalk out Team Strategies ; I may still need to learn Software terms by Rote …. But never will I have to learn the names of Racers or Players of Man Utd/KKR/Bushrangers squad :: and the Analogies just Extend to INFINITY ….. Buts after all that’s ME !! I am Also a Person ….n I am still one of the PEOPLE …n that’s what counts …. Not the materialistic or Idealistic things …Coz you are a True RULER of the Place you Own …but you are rather a DICTATOR of the place you possess by Force …
And have you ever given a peanut of a thought on which (Virtual) world you actually Belong ???? Try it like me …it may well lead to increased Efficiency in your work … n the Bonus here is that you can also be Omnipresent (read …god) in more than one of these Fictitous worlds …. Such is our Human Network ..or Network of PEOPLE….
So I will not be Joking if I say that we human too have a “Piconet “ network like the very much in-vogue Bluetooth technology …..
Ok….so by now I expect that most of my ‘Non Religious’ followers might have already left this page….hehe … but they missed the Chief Mystery of my current Write Up that I’m gonna disclose ……..
I would be a Fool if I state that all the Things I have written in this Blogpost till now cover all aspects of the Universal entity called PEOPLE …. and they would have been fools (Who left…Impatient as me..) if they thought that I thought so ….Confused ???? no worries ….Damn the SpunKogiri …keep on
…..Its a known fact that PEOPLE are a nations biggest Strength ….PEOPLE make a Government …..PEOPLE make an Empire …PEOPLE make sports…PEOPLE make Sports …PEOPLE make Religions ….PEOPLE make Cultures …..PEOPLE make a feeling of Belonging …but on the flipside..
PEOPLE also make TERRORISTS …PEOPLE make Thieves ..PEOPLE make DICTATORS …PEOPLE make hindi news Channels …..PEOPLE make War …
As a consequence ..PEOPLE destroy PEOPLE …..
But we must remember one simple thing that
WE make PEOPLE …..
“Boondh boondh milne se banta ek Dariya hai” – said Javed Akhtar
Its we….a Single Entity who Join together to form a Clan of a Mixture of Entities called PEOPLE …..
We may not know who the Other ones in these PEOPLE are …or what capabilities they have ….how well can they Perform …or how much goodwill/Malice they have …..
But we surely know who WE (Ourselves) are ……What Capabilities We have …
How well can We Perform …or how much GoodWill /Malice we have ….
WE are OUR OWN CONTROL ……
But it still bothers me how can those humans be classified as PEOPLE.. who never blink before shooting a Person …Who wage war in the name of GOD (again ..sinners )…
Who live by the Intent of doing nothing but harming/executing other PEOPLE ….
N above all who never even speak to their Conscience before trying to Disrupt an Entire Network of a Strong Emotional bond call PEOPLE ….
I would never classify them as PEOPLE …they would always remain in my ‘Hate List ‘ a Rung below LIZARDS (Whom I hate the Most in Life) ….
But there is always gonna be a Daylight after a Darknight (Exception – Antartica ..or post 21/12/2012…lol) …so Its all on us , depends on what we make ourselves…how we Form or Choose a Network of PEOPLE …..
But mind You …its not as Easy as connecting with another Device on a Bluetooth (Blackberry ….I love News Channels) network …..
We have to be very cautious nowadays ….coz Who knows , the Other might be a LIZARD ?????
………..the Day the world is wiped of all its Malice …..the day humans start to practice things they LOVE…….the day Hatred becomes a thing to be Hated….the day Respect (not money) becomes the only way of expressing Love ……
That will be the Day when an Imperfect Entity called Pranab “PB,SpunKo,SpunKomaniac” Bhattacharya will try to Test himself in comparison with all the others and try to prove …..
That HE IS ONE OF THE PEOPLE !!!!!!!
……..Folks …It has been a Journey from the time I was Born to the Time that I have started to Realize (Now)…LIFE IS indeed BEAUTIFUL …..It deserves nothing less than Respect and Affection and hardwork ……
I have already started to try …are you with me ??????
