Good morning, oops its 2 in the noon. Yet again I am sittin at kalmane Koffees, the first sip of coffee for the day . . . rejuvenates you so much and add to that Soothing music to the ears, Playing out loud to keep the unnecessary words from around me out of mind. Just came from the Office, told akbar I'll be going for a movie, not sure as yet, The show is scheduled at 3:30 pm, close to place where I am right now. . . . It all depends on how interesting are the things around me at 3 pm, that'll decide the fate of the movie. . . .
While I finished writing what u read, I thought of stoping writing for a while until something interesting comes to my mind . . . Wanted to think a bit about something that came to me last night. It was Gandhi. I remember this very famous statement of Gandhi, which I am pretty sure You all would know, "BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE". . . . When I thought about it a li'l more deeper to understand the meaning the way I could , the MAN was rite - "HE was the Change He always Wanted to SEE" . . . He meant every word he said.
[continued writing while thinking at the same time]
When Gandhi could be the change, why was it not possible for the rest to be the Change???? In history there have been very few people who have been able to stand up against the System, Be it Gandhi or Be it Bose . . . . A million people who could not be the change that they wanted to see, just followed the MAN. . . Followed everywhere the Man took them. . . .
people who never believed the Man were neither with the Man following him nor being able to be the change they wanted to see or be. . . . So what is it that the MAN have it in him that makes the millions follow, never go against the intentions, believing in the Man, trusting & having faith in the actions of the man ? ? ? May be it is the conviction that the Man showed in the Change that the people always wanted to see . . .
Coming back to where I started, the statement of Gandhi - Be the change you want to see, here you'll find that he wants every man to be the change they want to see, but had it been a serious consideration amongst the millions, then there would've been a million changes, WHO would have ever had the control over these million changes. . . . its better this way that No one ever understood What Gandhi said. . . . But in fact Gandhi should have said that - "I AM THE CHANGE, YOU WANT TO SEE" - therein lies the Ambiguity of Being. . . Being the MAN you are or Being the MAN People want you to be. . . .
Power of Gandhi's words is that, The EGO of the MAN is hidden or buried deep inside, He becomes the ego of everyone of the millions who follows him in the belief that he has rooted in their minds. . . .
So in order to be the change everybody want to see, You have to be IT[change], You have to be the change above YOURSELF, fight yourself, emerge victorious for the beliefs, because the MIND is the biggest BATTLEGROUND, there ever has been. . . if you can triumph here, the rest is just a piece of cake. . . .
Well Gandhi is HISTORY now, that was "his-Story" the world knows and yet in today's context, Its very unfortunate that I'm unable to find a leader "who is the change I want to see" and "I cannot afford to be the change everyone around me wants to see". . . I cannot be, I Love myself way too much, My Ego doesn't allow me to be Gandhi. . . .[i am representing a large section of people - that's the reason Why i am addressing it to a leader]
But like Gandhi - "I am the Change I want to see". . . unlike him "I am not the change YOU want to see"
