I think its high time now, that we talk about it.
Its there and will always be. It can be hidden no more. It should come out – and now, is the right time for it.
It encapsulates and represents almost anything or everything, that there can be – but, not more than one at a time.
Sometime its a man. Sometime its not. Sometimes its even naught. Then there are times when its naughty. But all in all its more often than not – harmless.
Its perhaps everywhere
But, in the form that we know about it, one finds it only in english speaking areas of the planet.
Its a part of our daily life.
It doesn really start anything.
It only follows.
But, it stays thereafter.
It brings memories.
It creates associations in our mind. Our mind -what a creation! Only the mind can grasp what it is. The mind can see, can feel, can understand what it is.
But, as a person marches towards senility, it starts overpowering him. It becomes just too much a part of an oldman’s life. All he utters about is it. So much does it increase that other people are just not able to understand what it is. They try, but they can’t really grasp at all what it is. This is because the man grows older, he becomes more and more forgetful. So, he often forgots even the Golden Rule about it: “it doesnt start anything – it follows!”.
But, no matter what people say – its crucially important. Its what makes humans, the way they are – the way they understand, the way they create things, the way they lead their lives towards it, the way they think once & for all and then just keep following it for the rest of their lives.
On the other hand, though, it depicts the very finitude that symbolises humanity. How very often, they can see it, they can feel it- but just cant put words to it.And if you wondering still, what it is. Then, thats it for you – at its very best!
