If you closely look at the numerous causes for pandemonium around our lives, evidently all roads would lead to ‘Us‘. And we, the ‘humans’, god’s most superlative creature in this planet earth, strive to make things worse, with an outside and a rear perspective to design things in a personalized fashion. And, we are quite emphatic in declaring ourselves as the greatest risk takers this world has ever witnessed.
And, I am quite jubilant about this self confessed yet a dynamic fact of our self consumed and so called vivacious lives. By stating this phenomenon of human creed, please do not jump in to an inane conclusion to declare that I am a pessimist. No, by all means, I am one of the most vigorous optimists venturing around the vicinity. But, if you sit down for a while and think about the repercussions of human achievements, you will realize that I am talking sense, and with loads of reality stuck to it.
Agriculture, Industries, Space & Moon, Sports, Technological Masterfinds, Education, Medicine, Hospitality, Aviation; we have made rapid progress in every conglomerate mentioned here. And we would continue to make rapid strides in these fields and excel, but we would still struggle to find an answer to the most infamous yet intriguing syndrome of ‘Global Warming’. At the most we can find innovative precautionary measures to confront this disaster, but we all should realize that the aftermath is inevitable. And, it is unanimously encouraged, driven and compounded by human desires and the insatiable quality to invent at the expense of something which is natural and deep rooted.
Yet, man is the quintessential brain child behind god’s most ambitious projects in the planet. Moreover, humanity strives through the entire process of crucification to maintain the desired equilibrium, that is further ramified to maintain the ecological balance of our fraternity in a cordial fashion. Huh! Quite logical and sensible, though sounds insane to me..!!
But despite me pondering over these nuances of life, I hate to admit that I am an integral part of the same damn society that believes in mincing words when it matters most and fight over trivial issues for centuries. Talking about ‘sex’ is still considered to be taboo and we are repeatedly reminded about the exploits of our great generations (forefathers) that behold us for the next 100 years. Sounds absurd, doesn’t it..?? We would swear about our culture and still continue to relinquish ourselves from wanting to get acquainted about certain concepts, which actually make sense and attempt to inculcate common sense. Phew!! But you, me and everyone else are aware that common sense has never been that common. Rather, we have always ignored those facets of life that infuse commonness amongst this so called intelligent clan.
This talk will continue and I would always remain famished for such write ups that invoke human thought process and tinkle our nerves to decide better. For themselves, for others and for the fulfillment of the entire mankind.
The 3rd edition of IPL invokes the kind of expectations and thrill, which is reminiscent of the extravaganza that began couple of years back with pomp and glamour.
Frankly, IPL has never interested me. I belong to the authentic school of copybook cricket and sincerely vouch for tests and ODI’s. For me, test cricket would always remain the premier edition of the game and 50 over matches are certainly a part of folklore now. But 20-20, well, I tend to have my reservations about this format that has the taken the game to a new pinnacle by becoming one of the proverbial and biggest money spinners in the sporting fraternity. But nevertheless, the world and the cricket fraternity looks at it from the entertainment perspective and it definitely does pull the crowds in large numbers.
Even though I do not follow IPL with the usual zest, but as a hardcore cricket buff, I do keep track of the proceedings. I vehemently favor KKR and ‘Mumbai Indians’ (Those who are avid readers of my blog would realize the obvious reason behind it). Both these teams have not been very successful in their last 2 ventures here (KKR had a tumultuous tourney last year) and I am sure they would look forward to set this record straight. Honestly, I do not have a track of the 11 names in each of the teams, but would make sincere attempts to peek in. There is this huge element of uncertainty over the performance of the teams in this tournament. Some peak early and lose their way amidst chaos, pressure and expectation. Few pick up late and gradually become consistent. So it is imperative that we do not jump in to conclusions by looking at the results and the figures of the first 10 games. Even the tournament sort of settles down and gets in to the groove after the first few games have gone past. As I said, these are early days to decide upon a favorite, but we expect the defending champions to deliver and few others who have had the right combination to win the crucial ones and progress.
Let the IPL crusade begin.
I have always been curious about the birthday syndrome..!!!?? Why are they so special..??
I mean, every second person in this world celebrates his/her birthday with pomp and glamour, or with a sense of fulfillment that he/she is worthy enough to be a year older..!!! But frankly, birthdays don’t excite me any more.
They do not thrill me as such. They are fascinating, yes, but I tend to have a perspective which is more responsible and could add a meaning to my life.
But I must confess that my colleagues surprised me today at work and the gesture touched me immensely. Thank you all!!
Looking forward to a peaceful day and an eventful year ahead!
