A peep into the Human Mind

The barbaric act on Saturday the 13th of September in the national capital has forced us to reflect and ponder once again. Why is it that for a section of society the value for a human life has no place in this world?

It is so disturbing and one feels so suffocating when we think of this entire act that is carried out by a handful of people without any remorse or guilt. Will this lead us anywhere?

The human mind is said to be the most amazing creation of God. It has done so many wonders. On the one hand the human mind has achieved such great heights that man has reached the moon, climbed the Everest, and has created world class doctors who are almost at par with the Almighty when it comes to saving a human life. Not to forget the discoveries in various spheres which have made our lives so comfortable. It’s this same human mind whose thought process if not channelised in the right direction can ruin the mother earth in minutes. Cities like Nagasaki and Hiroshima, which were destroyed by the ghastly atom bombs for generations to come; the various bomb blasts - let it be at Ahmadabad or a Bangalore, or the 9/11. The birth of terrorism is due to the hatred and zero tolerance level shown by various sections of people in many parts of the world. The mastermind behind these – human minds.

The motto of zero tolerance and the disrespect shown to a human life which is becoming rampant needs to be stopped before it becomes too late. It’s a matter which has to be dealt in-depth just not catching the people behind the massacre and let them languish behind jails. Then the credit is taken by some political party for showing its efficiency, and it eventually adds to its vote bank.

The need of the hour is maybe to look at it from various aspects, should deal with this problem more humanely and in a larger canvas. The human mind needs to be tamed which has just lost its vision.

Are we also are to be blamed for this scenario, may be partly yes. We have all become more self-centered and detached in today’s competitive world that we no longer have the urge and the desire to connect in an emotional level with anybody other than our own near and dear ones. What is it that has died within us? We need to peek in and reflect upon our inner conscience and see at what level are we also accountable for all the unrest that is there in our society. I am sure this introspection done at a very personal level without any pressure and under no stress is sure to come up with some solutions and when all these solutions are put together we could hit the jackpot!!! Maybe we will stumble upon some wonderful and valuable solutions which will go a long way in taming the wild and barbaric human mind that has become so popular in many parts of the society.

The time has come when each one of us needs to get passionately involved. The law makers of the country are at a higher level of accountability for we have chosen them to be our protectors and instead of being self absorbed in their own interest; they need to be more dedicated in keeping up with their promises that they make to millions of people before they get elected. We cannot afford such mishaps where many innocent people lose their kith and kin, for no reason.

The change in the human mind is very crucial, everything lies there. Rekindling of compassion, love and respecting another human live has to be revived. The day we start respecting lives, no matter how much we are cajoled or brainwashed in the name of terror, money and various materialistic benefits, one can never be convinced to be involved in such ghastly nightmares. The change lies just there. If that can be achieved, mankind can hope for a ray of light at the other end of the tunnel.

Targeting innocent people for fulfillment of some desire can never be a peaceful solution.

The lovely blue pristine sky, with patches of clouds in shapes ones imaginative mind could visualise made it look more ethereal and pure. The soft sensuous wind which was blowing was making Maya inhale the purity of the moment and her tender feet wanted to slow her steps. Yet her anxious mind knew that she needed to hurry to the nearest internet café, in the sleepy hamlet of Majuli the only river island which was a place for Maya to be connected to the entire world and people she held dear to her heart. The internet café would be shutting down with the onset of dusk. She anxiously opens her inbox in her social networking sight and her heart missing a beat what if she is...
It’s that time of the year once again....... It’s April and Rongali Bihu is there. According to the Hindu calendar it is the beginning of a new year. Being a hardcore axomiya(that is how Assamese is pronounced) Rongali Bihu makes me feel so at ease from deep within, that time of the year when promises are made and some broken, the cycle continues. The Bihu folksong which every shop plays makes the market look so festive. The dark chocolate red colour of Jetuka(mehendi) and it’s smell is so nostalgic to me even today. My aaita from my maternal side always said we need to apply the fresh paste of the jetuka leaves on the night of Goru Bihu(Where cows are...
The very first evidence of a new life forming in all mammals is first felt by the female counterpart, in whose womb the life starts growing. Human beings are no exception to it. After nine months in most cases leaving a few like elephants whose gestation period carries on for 22 months, dogs 63 days, and cats 67 days. The life that is formed makes it’s appearances on this planet. And then the journey continues, as long as its lifespan is there. The ones who are born without any physical deformities by birth are the lucky ones compared to their counterparts who are challenged for a life time and are challenged in one form or the other. When we pass by an organisation, for the...
The oxford dictionary states the meaning of Odyssey as a long adventurous journey. This long adventurous journey can be made a memorable one or can be goofed up. The entire outcome totally rests on us. Every life on this planet needs to be respected and be appreciated for its presence. It could be human beings, animals, or plants. The unrest that is prevailing all over the universe which is showing it’s manifestations in the name of hatred, wars,corruption,is the outcome of the fact that we have just forgotten to appreciate life anymore. The moment we are out from the mother’s womb our odyssey for life begins. The formative years lays the foundation for this...
Change is the law of nature and the second most important truth after the ultimate truth of life and Death. Every living thing on this universe adapts to change. Seasons of nature are also a part of the various changes that take place in this universe. Our mother Earth has also shown her change recently by switching from the gruesome summer seasons, giving respite to every one. The ones who have the comforts of a home and electricity are slightly better of compared to their counterparts who dwell on the roadside without the blanket of protection above their head. The winter nip is in the air. The atmosphere has cooled down and every one is ready bringing out the winter clothing to enjoy the...
The beauty of the Indian society is that we still believe in loving our parent’s, grandparents, and all our extended family. Every living creature on this planet loves their fellow being. Their is love among the animals, birds and even plants. Birds rub their beaks against each other, to show their warmth, and love. It’s such a delight to watch a dog licking it’s own platoon of puppies, or a cow rubbing it’s back against it’s own new born calf. Trees sway their branches acknowledging each other’s presence these are some of God’s beautiful creature showing their love for each other. These sights are a real delight to us human beings in this life full...
Let me rewind back to the 1980s. It’s seems life then was a beautiful dream, everything was so splendid, nice home ,wonderful family life, with some very genuine and true friends who actually happened to be very close of ma and toot ( I call my duata as toot).But as my sister and me gradually evolved as mature human beings they also become our very good friends.The trade mark of these beautiful people as to why they are very close to us is, as I have earlier quoted very genuine, and very unconditional in their love towards us.My entire family is indeed very lucky to have a few handfuls of such wonderful and priceless people around us.I cannot really recollect very clearly as to when...
The mystery of life is very hard to decipher. To each his own interpretation. It all depends upon how we look at life. But one cannot deny the fact that when God created this universe, and He made all the living things and MAN too, He decided to bestow upon man the maximum sense and sensibilities. That is why Man is said to be the supreme creator of God. It’s our moral obligation to uphold this sanctity and make this universe a better place.We have made all possible advancements in all spheres of life to such an extent that at times many of us consider ourselves next to God. But the million dollar question is can we ever take that place? We have forgotten to respect the feelings and...
It’s that time of the year once again, yes it is time for Goddess durga to come down to the mother earth for us to show regards and pay our tributes to her. The festive smell is already there in the air. What a rejuvenating experience it is. The very feeling that Durga puja is round the corner makes one feel so nostalgic about so many fond memories. The markets are thronged with people brushing each other in every shop to get the best deal. Let it be the garment shop or the shop with fancy footwear every place is choc o block. Every stranger in the market place smile at each other acknowledging the festive spirit. According to Hindu mythology, a demon named Mahisashura had threatened...
