Powwows with Prachi

SOLEMN RAMBLINGS / Wednesday, June 25, 2008

I've been watching quite a few heavy documentaries lately... Night and Fog by Alain Resnais, War and Peace, and Father Son and the Holy War by Anand Patwardhan... My mind seems to be constantly running with visuals from these films and everyday, by nightfall, I seem to be losing all my ways and excuses of comprehending life and the millions of people who comprise it... including myself. This notion of homogeneity that one relies on - does not exist. India itself is a country of many worlds. What will the world be like...? Perhaps there will never be equality - of any kind...

Its kind of ironic, isn't it, that we admire patwardhan for taking up the distant causes of 'right' things and simultanously endure / ensure a 'wrong' thing like ragging right in one's own backyard.

Well I admire Patwardhan's way of influencing ones opinion about certain things... although perhaps it's not the best way... is it? Personally, I don't think I can do the same - for any kind of a situation including ragging... 'To each his own...' Guess this is called being selfish...

when we say, 'to each her/his own..' we need to surely know or atleast walk a path of knowing 'what is my own?'
a pleasent or tolerable democracy is achieved then.
feeling sad about today and hoping for a better tomorrow makes you perplexed which leads to a simple solution..being thick skinned!

Chalti chakki dekh kar, diya Kabir roye
Dui paatan ke beech mein, sabit bachaa na koye
