"we desire to understand the world by giving names to the things we see but these things are only the effects of something subtle
when we see beyond the desire to use names
we can sense the nameless cause of these effects"--lao tsu
bomb blasts in bombay. watching a really bad movie at the same time in chennai..i am not trying to deraw a parallel between the two. but i can say only about what I experienced,at a given point of time, right? i dont know if i am sounding bizzare, but i cant help thinking why are things the way they are..if, as the tao goes, we overcome the desire to name the effect, will the cause become clear to us? or why do we demand for vivid reasons at all?!that age-old question pops up again..why i was born??!!
i read about sex trafficking,about russian gals selling their flesh for studies, 9 year olds in delhi showing off their budding breasts and inviting "clients" for some money to eat...and here we talk about the desires of flesh, the unreal concepts of virginity...the politics of a kiss!!i am not happy with our world that counts only straight smiles, fair skin, big money and correct fitting jeans as VIRTUE. why cant we, including myself, stand a moment of anger, of folly, of ignorance, of clumsiness, from others??why do we see only the fast, the smart and the successful? why DO NOT WE STOP AND THINK A BOMB COULD BLAST ANYTIME WITHIN OR WITHOUT??!!!(afterall, most of us eat fast food that is carcinogenic)
