Enter the world of stagnancy

Posted in Movies, poor nutrition, stagnancy by clash on August 31, 2006

On a huffy- puffy Saturday afternoon I landed near D.J. Halli, the fag end of tannery road, a narrow road which leads to somewhere; which exactly is not under my comprehension. From the suaveness of Koramangala, I was invited to a very strange world; a world of disparities; which was very profound. I was invited to a world where people were never ashamed of this disparity; seems like they had taken it for granted; that they always needed to bear the brunt of this disparity. “An auto drivers life starts in an auto and ends in an auto”, I remember these strange words of a bearded Muslim brother’s auto which I boarded from there. It is not the disparity; but it is the stagnancy that over ruled; it is a monotonous life; either you become something or the other which will never significantly make a difference or which will not make you remembered in the pages of history. It is stagnant. “Mera bapu auto chalaya: abhi uska thabiyath kharab hein; to mein chala raha hoon”. Stink which almost all the new bred; sandwich bred journo’s will feel nauseated at was omnipresent, a theatre which played a Salman Khan Movie. If you don’t have, you pray for your hero to have it; may be that is the ideology of a normal Indian. He cries and whimpers for very single blow falling on him. A very precarious situation of alienating yourself from the self and having an illusionary pleasure at the cost of a ticket. Dingy houses and confusing narrow alleys and over dosed souls littered the place. As I strolled; I met an old man sitting right in front of his house. Life didnt have anything more to give him; a repugnant feeling made his face more visible. He blankly starred in to the sky and stinking dirty sewer with flies just flowed under his leg. Neither did the flies nor stink bothered him. May be an hour at that place will take us in to a hospital for sure. But he grew there; he lived there; Colors of the walls around changed and may be the “hero” started wearing new dress and shades; but all those barely made any change in his life; rather his face did’nt show that. I entered a world of perennial stagnancy!

    Stagnancy is an enemy that everyone faces. You can either choose to fight it, or to succumb to it.

    You know what, I stupidly merged my blogger a/c with google one, and I’m unable to comment from my login on any non-BloggerBeta blogs now! 😦

    all heros were not happy
    and all those who are happy
    need not be heros.
    the auto driver who eats with his hard earned money may be more happier than a software engineer on bench whom he ferried early morning.
    and try not to measure every achievement with smae yardstick..
    😉

    It is not about the usual grind; it is about the usual way and ending up in the same grind. It is about that stagnancy,what i am speaking of, not of becoming a hero! rarely will a hero come from that part of world. Thanks for the constructive comments!
