Hello people on the blogosphere, as you see my blog is completely dedicated to movies, but let me tell you that sometimes when I am drunk, I talk about some serious social issues or human psychology or studies but that’s when I am not in sense.
And when I am not drunk I am either discussing movies, music, technology or just keep quiet.
But this post of mine, I have written in full sanity without any intoxication or pressure... ;-P
Kindly read it and see whether my serious views which seem insane sometimes do make any sense.
'Divide and Rule', very old but an effective policy in politics at any level be at local, state, national or international level. The bottom line is to achieve power from a specific region or community by filling their minds with false pride for themselves and at the same time disrespect and superiority over other regions or communities.
The basic problem behind this is the human ego and the tendency to win or to be always on the winning side.
Did we ever notice our selfishness?
Or if you think we are just and broad minded people then answer these questions of mine based on cricket since it is almost parallel to religion in our country.
Q.1) If your country is playing against another country, which country would you want to win?
Q.2) If your state is playing against another state, which state would you want to win?
Q.3) If your city is playing against another state, which city would you want to win?
Q.4) If your colony is playing against another colony, which colony would you want to win?
Q.5) Lastly if you are playing with your neighbour, then who amongst you, would you want to win?
If I am not wrong, the answers to the above questions would be
- My country
- My state
- My city
- My colony
- And the answer to the last question would definitely be 'ME'.
Now that’s what creates problems for both you and me. Everyone is so jealously busy in trying to win, that one hardly has any time to sit and think for things beyond winning.
If this goes on then it would not be long before every individual or nation would gear-up against each other and just blow out our planet.
A sane approach towards any situation would demand showing some courtship towards the opposition, be it towards your enemies or be it you very own friends and enemies.
Think about it.
If you think 'Yaar kuch zyada ho gaya'(Hey buddy its getting boring), can understand, even I don't like lectures. ;-)
And now since it’s my blog, there has to be something about movies or else the post would be incomplete ;-)
Have you watched the movie ‘Lahore’?
Released last year in 2010, it is one of best movies which deals with peace between the two nations that have been known for tensions between them. It shows how just a sport and an individual with proper sportsmanship can be one of the triggering factors of peace between the two countries.
