I am searching for ‘YOU’ from a long time.. I am looking for ‘YOU’ in the face of an innocent child who talks incoherently and pronounces words inconsistently but learns to talk in the most suave way later knowing the nitty gritties of social setting where everything that’s sweet is surely nice. But you shed that sugar coating an inch and there you would be tagged thrice as insensitive, stony-hearted, mean-spirited, unpleasant & what not, the list somewhat becomes endless.
We at times skip our meal, forget important dates like dear ones birthdays or anniversaries, sometimes we are unable to recall names, addresses & to mention the least phone numbers (thanks to the electronic age) but when it comes to wearing that ‘JUDGE’ hat, I bet, you never forget. And for that you score an A+ without a hitch & that too all the time, bull’s eye, very much unlike children who have to cram, study intensively, grind away, mug up, bone up their revising skill and do what not to score decent marks to prove their mettle, spirit & resilience. Think for a moment studying would become as easy as judging others for which you need no expertise, no skill, no certificates, no moral fibre & no gallantry then even a Pappu can score s***a.
But in the midst of all these causes & purposes, my search is still on & I still haven’t found you in the hands of your children whom you have nurtured & treasured to spread newness, freshness around but, alas, they are ready with shovel, spade, blade, scoop and all the man-made monsters to slash, gash, penetrate & pierce in the pretext of bringing refinery to practice to bring modernity to the forefront and to make it the epicentre of our very own existence.
But am little stiff-necked, pig-headed and am not going to give up, my search will be on to find ‘YOU’ in the darkness of human mind, in the veils of man’s intelligencia, in the very core of human soul that is covered (though temporarily) with greed, egocentricity, clumsiness & foolish sentimentalities. But that’s not the real human being, that’s no one for that matter. Nothing has ever survived to deter or shake human conscientiousness, that phase had passed & this phase too shall perish.
I know and I believe .. I will find ‘YOU’ one day.. one find day.. dear ‘YOU’ .. dear ‘LIFE’ .. without any contamination, destruction, ruination of your very own identification which is ‘LIFE’ in its true sense and a life of celebration, commemoration & jollification.
In a nutshell, my dear ‘LIFE’, you would be an amalgamation of quality, simplicity, modesty, novelty, purity & spirituality.
And at last I can proudly announce, “ ‘LIFE’, yes …, I shall find ‘YOU’ one day.”
