Wake Up Homo sapiens

A Science lecture was scheduled in the College. I was sitting in the Hall along with other dutiful colleagues, and overly enthusiastic students , waiting for the chief guest of the event to arrive. As usual, I was expecting some suited booted science person, with a lingo that makes you feel completely illiterate at points as if you know nothing of Science anymore (yeah, it happens).

And then after much wait, the arrival was announced from the stage, and there he was… a man who looked less of a scientist but more like a Fakir

No wonder the Faculty members started whispering.
The man was anonymous for me considering I was far for long or may be I never paid attention! But surprisingly, he is famous… nationwide, and I was obviously underinformed.

This man of a short stature has given complex to even the mighty mountains. Rightly called the Mountain Man.

 He was well aware of the thoughts crossing the mind of audience. I think, he picked the vibes, and actually chose his dress-up as the opener of his talk. Smart move!

The youngsters as we know, normally madly follow the people who fit their set definition of a role model, but surprising enough, they actually sat quiet for the entire session, and listened to this eloquent ‘Fakir’ who happens to be a doctorate, and an expert of Environment, and who has won countless awards for his efforts in saving the environment while working for the wellbeing of people at the grassroot level. 

The man is Dr Anil Prasad Joshi, an Environmentalist, from the hilly state Uttrakhand, and the Winner of 4th highest and Prestigious award of India, The Padamshree.

He is inspiring enough. He even goes to gala events in this simple attire of ‘Kurta-pajama’ and a ‘safa’ covering his head. That is something very unusual. A Gandhian follower in philosophy, he lives in reality, and motivates other to undetstand and acknowledge the significance of Forests, Villages, and the traditional way of living life. He touched some basic issues which find no place in the so called progressive indices of the country. 

It was an hounour to listen to him. 

And  a reminder as well, 

Let’s show some respect to the soil, water, and the air which give us life. If we won’t do it, Who will?????

Accept Truth…Either Way.

You say People are so complex to understand.

It’s hard to differentiate noble from fake!

Innocent smile from a pretentious one!

Gentle wording from a sweet dagger!

And a quiet mind from the conspiring one!

My words-If you can’t differentiate, either try to learn or just sit back. Life will teach you itself. Wait for your turn !

If you can diffentiate all, what’s the confusion all about? What this noise over complexity? 

You either know someone or you don’t. Take them as they are. It’s as simple as that…period.

Lo and Behold

He said, “You are family too and I’ll tend to your happiness just like the other members of the family.”

And he puts her happiness on his priority list…last!!!!!

Listen To A Bumble Song ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

I know…
You possessed the skills of a worker bee, altruistically, working incessantly for the well being of the giant family, especially, the queen and a few privileged drones; dutifully and repeatedly going on trips to many uncertain projects…in the search of vibrant vistas…just to collect those tiny drops of priceless nectar…to fulfill the very purpose of your existence.

Inspite of being followed by an army of devotees to whom you have taught the culture and tradition of the Colony; including the language as well as the signature ‘waggle’ dance…your life undoubtedly, was tough, and filled with uncertainities…

Remember, how many times you wished for a miracle to make life somewhat bearable…and then… one day… you were  actually picked from the disorder, to be placed in a bountiful garden of Eden’s where destiny’s favourite bees (unlike you) are busy in their own ways…humming songs of diverse emotions. The music sounded familiar to ears but the lyrics seemed ‘French’ to you. The dance being the best language of expression, you tried to match the steps…oh dear…you need time… to learn the atypical moves.

So now, what option you are left with except to sit back and watch…watch untill you decipher the code all by yourself or you can aksi choose to wait for some Kind Soul to translate it for you…

And untill this happens…stop buzzing around…You Bumbled Bee!!!!!๐Ÿ

Just focus…and…keep your eyes and ears wide open…your time will definitely come.๐Ÿต๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒป
