Obfuscating Overtures

It is enlightening to notice how a strategy in life towards reaping supposedly huge benefits gets insinuated into the hapless victim’s habits and way of life. It gets so deeply rooted into a person’s mannerisms so much so that they find it difficult to wriggle out of it, toss all inhibitions aside that hitherto prevented them from incorporating it into their eventful life and gets deeply etched in them as their way of life.

Its malevolent presence is such that no matter what conscious effort they put in to outsmart and overcome it, they never come to fruition. For example, if a matriarch in the family wants to imbibe into her nubile generation certain aspects that entirely aid in the conservation of resources in the forthcoming eventful life of hers, it raises its ugly face in later episodes of her life.

This conserving nature can blossom into an unwelcoming and offensive behavior in the then nubile family member, resulting in opposition among the kith and kin. This is very evident in the fact that less interest is evinced in this matriarch’s pupil than other amicable and socially welcoming counterparts. All the efforts of the matriarch has become counterproductive to her brood.

This stingy behavior of the matriarch’s apple of her eye can result in her kith and kin boycotting her and the strategy she devised for her can be construed as enmity within the clan. Surely, this is an ulterior motive on part of the keen female who heeded her mother and it becomes a part of her life.

She may even try to sever relationships which were once cordial. But this truth prevails- ‘Those who sow in enmity will reap in discord’, and is largely proved in their life serving as a deterrent to further generations.


Belittling Fate

It can be rather amusing to watch the hilarity at play concerning the fate of varied individuals. While at times it is overwhelming with joy to some, but it also can be unforgiving with sorrow to others. There is an exigency to unravel the mysteries regarding life that it plays so close to its chest, never allowing people to decipher them.

People get bewildered and thoroughly outwitted by these anomalies regarding fate’s favoritism towards  its select people. The unequivocal transience that is attached to every life on this gloomy and at the same time, a lively world never allows them to be at peace. They can be found constantly wrestling for a satisfactory answer.

The answer surely lies with the omniscient one and he rains it down from time and again on the truly seeking ones, but it is worth to try. Less akin to find an answer, mystics have taken the less trodden path and aim to be handed over the answer by many facets of divination. The answer is surely bound to come in the form of a raindown of hails because there is an answer to everything.

Be prepared with a shelter, lest you may get caught unawares and be found scurrying for cover.

Feigning Ignorance: Is It Dumb?

The world is teeming with people that have a rudimentary understanding of the word ‘smart’. Actually, to be precise, the word ‘smart’ is misconstrued and is tantamount to being manipulative. This manipulative nature stems from the fact that they are convinced of a dearth of alternatives to lying, so as to ease a lot of things like soothing ruffled feathers and frayed nerves.

These debauchers can be seen clamoring for the coveted post of a ‘clinical liar’- one with a precision that can effectively avoid confrontations regardless of the triggers. This admirable person is a bundle of lies and deceit. His acquaintances are hell bent to ‘outsmart’ him and often green with envy towards him.

The people with the hallowed quality of feigning ignorance are far from the disgrace that surmounts a liar throughout his less-appealing life. All the above bunch of liars are confused with their disposition- whether they like the ‘smart liar’ or not. This motley collection of feelings can make them lose their orientation.

Never underestimate the ‘dumb’. 

Of Cataclysmic Events

Nowadays it does not take a big effort on part of you to witness a cataclysmic event live. You just have to rest your derriere on your favorite furniture with plush leather upholstery and tune in your tv. Soothsayers make brisk business when it comes to looking for signs that portend such calamitous events. These predictions do not hold water- more often than not. When these events do not occur as predicted they shift base to other lucrative locations fearing backlash from their ‘subjects’.

The real problem starts in the aftermath of these events. For example, when the floods subside, the carnage trailing them is of such gargantuan proportions that there are chances of a pandemic getting unleashed which is capable enough of threatening the entire region or race fallen victim to it into obliteration.

The regime has to press disaster management teams into service. Proper counter-measures to tackle this behemoth of disasters need to be undertaken. Proper facilities of potable water availability and proper burial for the carcasses strewn over the whole landscape is a must. It is wiser to have been aware of the signs beforehand than be stunned with a bolt from the blue. Undue justification won’t do. They ought to take a stance.
