Break down…

Just got up after watching Suffragette. You may or may not understand
women’s movement, but do watch it. It is a beautiful piece of genuine history of
genuine people who cared for others: what does it matter if they were women?
All the better!
I want to share a little story I read as a child; it came to
me with great force, as I listened to the participants of the last Comm WS at
Sita Ram Ashram, Dehradun:
An honest police officer was kidnapped by smugglers. They blind-folded
him and took him to their underground hideout. Instead of killing him
straightaway, they struck upon a plan. They raised him to bar over-head – and told
him that if he lets the bar go, he will fall down hundreds of feet, in to the
dark well below, and die. Then, they left.
The police officer tried to keep on holding the bar – till he
could not hold on. His fingers, hands, arms became numb. Finally his fingers just
slipped and he fell down…
Imagine his surprise, when his fall was broken by hard
ground just a few feet below! He removed his blind-fold and discovered that there
was no well! Smugglers had only played a deadly trick on him.
Many of us have tried to hold on to an image of being “Normal”,
till our hands are paralyzed with pain- and we can no more hold on. Because we
have been told by the society that there is a deep dark well below our feet..
that if we stammer our world will collapse. Meltdown. Fiasco. OMG..
Friends, let it go- Check out your fears – once in a life
time, whole-heartedly.
Stammer happily, with joy, with abandon.. Be yourself.

    सही कहा सर आपने ! एक बार इस संसार रूपी समंदर में गिरकर देखना तो पड़ेगा ही। बहुत बार जो दीखता है वह होता नहीं है।

    एक बात और सर …..

    पुलिस वाले को मरने का डर था लेकिन अंत में वह मरा तो नहीं लेकिन उसने बचने की उम्मीद भी नहीं छोड़ी और अंत तक लटका भी रहा। हमें उम्मीद भी नहीं छोड़नी चाहिए क्योंकि अच्छा पाने के लिए वक्त और मेहनत तो लगेंगे ही।

    मैं ये मूवी भी जरूर देखूंगा सर। मैं एक-दो दिन से सोच भी रहा था कि कौनसी मूवी देखूं क्योंकि मूवी देखकर हकलाने का मन करे तभी तो मजा आएगा।
