Race, Religion & Color II

Race, Religion & Color II

The stage is set. The world is wondering what next? There is already a set of people with maximum access to material wealth and technology and the rest who would get there in due course of time. Probably a century. So the question is where do we go from here in terms of evolution of our society.

The next step of progress in mankind is for cross pollination of gene pool across the globe. People across race, religion and color should share their gene pool with each other. This would create possibilities of more qualities in the human race eventually resulting into more talent and advancement of civilization.America is already ahead in the race with maximum acceptance of race & color. They mix with anyone across the globe without much prejudice. In fact the current president (Barack Obama) of United States States is from African origin. Cross:fertilization of the host country with other race and color will help the society of the host country with enrichment of values and advancement of civilization. (i,e. Cross:fertilization in the America would help America more than other countries. Americans mixing with Indians and Chinese in the past 3-4 decades has helped America more than India and ChinaIndia and China have got forex revenues from Non resident Chinese and Indians, but in terms of long-term the gene pool of America has been enriched. The effects of which would take a century at least to be realized)

Hence for maximum progress it is imperative for the world to cross pollinate. They should replicate the American example as soon as possible without which they would be left tailing America by a century at least. And this is true for some of the advanced nations like Germany, EnglandRussia, Israel too.

The Waiting Room

June 29, 2010

The Waiting Room

As I get into
the changing room

I see a host of
other people

Women, Kids &
Men

Some wanting to
change their looks

The Others looking
to change their past
life

I gather myself
and look into the
mirror

and I see a exhausted
face and a worn out
body

My whole past life
zipping through my
eyes

The Good, The Bad
and The Ugly

I steal a moment
from the hustle
around

and I wonder about
the circus around
me

The whole world
revolving for the
past zillion years

Passengers stopping
by to enjoy the
spectacle

And then i look at
myself again

and wonder about
the part i have to
play

There are many
hats

The artist, the clown
and the owner

Then there is a
flash of light

and I wake
up

and hear a person
behind me saying
“Move on buddy”

I excuse myself out
of the changing
room

and as I make my
way into the
world outside

The same man,
the same outlook
and the same world

but a bit
stirred

The Supreme

The Supreme

I wonder and
wonder how?

What is the
Supreme?
Is it all
a design

Is it all
chance

Or is it a
mixture of
the two

I wonder and
wonder how?

What is the
Supreme?

Is it all
infinite

Is it all
finite

Or a combination
of two

I wonder and
wonder how?

What is the
Supreme?

Is it all
love

Is it all
survival

Or is it
a blend
of the two

I wonder and
wonder how?

What is the
Supreme?

In Search of Real People (Blast from the Past:2008)

In Search of Real People (Blast from the Past:2008)

Recently, I was taking to a friend of mine and could easily figure out that he wasnt just himself. He was speaking in some kind of influence or under influence of someone and whatever he spoke was fake.

As I live on, i am realizing that most of us are under influence of someone or something that we have just given hope of living as we want to. Men have become slaves to money. Customers, companies & competetion monopolizing thier time and thought. And then again they are responsible brothers, father, son and offcourse a responsible person in the society who is supposed to behave in a particular way.
Young girls are in the constant lookout for husbands. The pressure on them from their family and society is so high, that they hardly seek out what they want to do. If they look at a guy, they are looking at whether he is well to do. It doesn’t matter if he is born rich or he is a self made man. And the decision is made within the first 5 seconds or so whether he is a suitable husband or not. If he is suitable, then the journey starts of faking oneself so that he keeps on liking her. Moms are dependent on sons and daughters! Wifes on husbands…
The number of mask which we wear are many. The mask of the family, society, company, boss, brother, sister, husband – that we are rarely who we are. It is rare to meet real people. Most of the time we are busy hiding behind a mask and the effort usually required to remove the mask from the other person is so high, that we hardly discover each other or even our true self. The only real people i guess are beggars, prostitutes… as they have nothing to fake…

Or am i the fake guy living in a real world?

The World: From Survival to Talent

The World: From Survival to Talent

The human race evolved from chimps which in turn would have evolved from smaller animals, insects. As Charles Darwin had stated, it is the survival of the fittest. And the DNA mutates to evolve into better and fitter living beings. So if we look at the world as a whole, what does it look like? What’s going on? Where are we all going?

It all started from Africa. Human beings evolved from chimps for better survival. They went on to inhabitants the entire world from Africa. However Africa has been slow to adopt and innovate. Poverty and illness remains high.  Africa’s problem is homogenous DNA and due to which DNA has hardly mutated, resulting in slow development of the human race in that continent.
America has been built by immigrants all along. It is an Immigrant Story out & out. People from all over the world came to this continent and made its home. Cross mutation happened resulting in innovation and development. Currently  America represents the most advanced civilization on this planet.
Asia was rich early on in its civilization. However between 15th and 19th century, due to the foreign rule,its natural resources was depleted. After independence, the human race in this continent multiplied leading to huge population problems. Due to a large population and limited natural resources, there has been large-scale discontent in this continent.
Post 15th century, as the old routes of trade from Europe to the World were fret with danger, it led to a huge wave of discovery in Europe for alternative routes for trade with the world. It also led to the discovery of new lands for inhabitation including America. This also bought about a massive Industrial Revolution in EuropeEurope raced ahead in scientific and technological progress making it one of the most advanced continents in the World. Its wealth grew helping it to stay on the top of the world for the several next centuries.

Considering the history of the World, we can pretty much generalize everything is DNA mutation, except for talent. Can we explain what is talent? If it wouldn’t have been for talent, our world would have been very primitive and the development on a slow linear trajectory. Talent made it possible for the world to grow non linearly and spring out different forms of expression & development i.e. Paintings, Internet, Telephone, Planes, Music and more. People like Che Guevara, Van Gogh, Ashoka changed the world for ever. What makes talent is a question yet unexplored though.

Wanna Swim with me?

June 13, 2010

Wanna Swim with me?

A few years back
I fell in love

With Swimming

Saw the biggest
stars swim and
win

Got my
zeal

I swam for
a few years

Went from the
most basic stroke
to the advanced one

Had fun of my
life

Went a bit ahead
too

Then lost my way
for a year or
so

Now i must swim
again

Bring more style
& grace into
my strokes

Find my love
again

Wanna swim
with me?

Quality of Life

June 13, 2010

Quality of Life

As i move
around

From place to
place
From one country
to another

I see & meet all
kinds of people

Some short,some tall
and some fat

Some witty, some
brave

Some simple and some
extremely talented

Then I wonder
what is Life?

And I get a echo
back

Life is all
about Quality

Having quality
conversations

Spending Quality
Time

Developing Quality
in oneself

Love is
Quality

Courage is
Quality

Talent is
Quality

And then all i ever
wished for is

Is to spend more time
with high quality
people

What is Courage?

What is Courage?

I wonder and wonder
how

What is
courage?

There are the
young

Unaware of the
dangers ahead

Eager to
explore

I wonder and wonder
how

What is
courage?

Then the old
Who have seen
almost everything

Aware of the
dangers ahead

Prize their life
the most

I wonder and wonder
how

What is courage?

And people in
between times

Who have seen
a bit

And are yet to
see a bit more

I wonder and wonder
how

What is courage?

Then I ask the
question to
myself

Who does the
World belong to?

A echo beams

“It belongs to
the brave”

And courage
is independent
of age

I wonder and wonder
how

What is courage?

And then I ask
the question again
to myself

Who does the
World belong to?

It belongs to
anyone who has
conquered fear

Who knows of the
dangers ahead

And still is willing
to cross the stream

I wonder and wonder
how

What is
courage?

Courage is
Life

What is Love?

What is Love?

I wonder and wonder
how

What is
Love?

Love cant
be asked
for

One cannot give
Love

Love happens

I wonder and
wonder
how

What is Love?

No one knows what
is Love

Love can only be
felt

I wonder and wonder
how

What is Love?

Most of the time
one realizes love

When one has completed
his journey

Unaware during it

I wonder and wonder
how

What is Love?

Love crosses all
borders

It grows and cannot
be stopped

Even by the lovers
themselves

I wonder and wonder
how

What is
Love?

Love is
Life

Meeting Life Midway

Meeting Life Midway

 

As i wait midway
in my life

There are many roads
ahead

I look into my
past

And find i had
my fill of joy

I look into all
the past of all
the great leaders

Some found
wealth

Some won
kingdoms

Some conquered the
spirit

But I am still
clueless

Knowing not which
direction to go
Wondering

What good is the
wealth?

What good is the
kingdom?

What good is the
spirit?

As i sit here
writing this poem

I am yet to meet
life midway
