Yaar sach bol lo. For a change. What is the worst that can happen? You will lose all you have? you will not win the LS seat? Your drama will end? Everyone will see who you really are? Toh dekh lo karke ek baar. We have all become such pathetic liars. At work, in our relationships. Looking good is everything. Feeling good is just not important. Good work is not important. Good connections are everything. Play golf, go to the right places, right clubs, right hotels with the right accessories, just to meet the right people. And who the hell are these so called right people?The ones with the right chairs, right titles? What’s wrong with us guys? I mean what about being real for a change?
The other day while driving I saw a huge board showing a life size figure of Narendra Modi asking for votes abd below it a manual scavenger sifting the polythene bags from the smelly garbage dumped by all the residents, hotels, hospitals around. The numerous flies had enveloped his face and head. The stinking smell of the garbage could be felt even at such a great distance from him on the road. Will Mr. Narendra Modi be able to do something for him? I ver much doubt it. I doubt all the parties. There is not a single true leader to look up to. That is the pverty. The garibi. There is no role model. No one to look up to. If you are all so good, why do you need to shout so much to tell us that? Why are you guys so loud? screaming all the time. Do one small good job and talk about it for years to come , one hundred times. You did a fraction of what you were supposed to do. Itna gaane ki, halla machane ki kya zaroorat hai? thotha chana baaje ghana. SHor macha lo. Aur toh kuch hai nahi. You are all empty. No leadership. No spiritual content. Just words. Words are all you have.
Rather than face the truth which will rip our souls apart, it is easier to be on the Merry go round, pretending to be enjoying the ride. Stopping it and facing the truth would be too painful. Rok do yaar. It is painful being on it. The male ego, the pathetic education system, the false glorification of money, the lack of true leadership is killing us anyway. Where is the brilliance? Where is the quest for achieving excellence? Where is the honesty? You remember the word ‘Imandaari’? Sounds good. Currently it is used in advertisements and contracts to get more money, sales, revenues. What have you?
Its fake life in fake world. Maybe the earth should stop rotating for a fraction of a second to jolt us out of our illusion. Dream within a dream. Inception.
‘Yeh duniya agar mil bhi jaaye toh kya hai. jala do, phunk dalo yeh duniya,mere samne se hata lo yeh duniya. Jahaan jawan jism sajte hai bazar ban kar, jahaan aadmi ki keemat kuch bhi nahin hai’. From the movie ‘Pyaasa’
I am sure God would be very sad upstairs. And yet hoping against hope.
Sudhar jaana chahiye.
Time to get real.
