Seeing a good movie always make you feel better. It is just like a perfectly brewed coffee that leaves an aftertaste and open wide the imaginative canvas which is otherwise put close somewhere in our minds.
So this Sunday I watched PK (thanks to my lovely wife Reeaa for taking me to the film), the new happening movie of Bollywood iconic actor Amir Khan and just like his nature he enthralls audiences once again with his brilliant performance. Every actor in the movie has acted well and Rajkumar Hirani proves out why he should be loved and blessed for being there in a role of a Bollywood Director.

Well of course I am not planning to write a movie review over here but I just wanted to thank entire cast and crew of #PKTheFilm that actually has given me yet another inspiration to strike down my fingers on keyboard. I love writing, I seriously do. It gives me a rush, a satisfaction, like no drug can give to a man. Also, I hope that what I am writing actually makes some sense and worthy for those who read it. I would say PK is kind of a film that makes you laugh and self-introspect you at the same time. It is an amazing thing to achieve on celluloid!
As humans, we sometimes do look confused in this world. When we look into different societies and communities, we find, they are separated by so many ideologies and actions.
WHAT IS GOOD FOR ONE IS BAD FOR ANOTHER!
WHAT IS PIOUS FOR ONE IS IMPIOUS FOR ANOTHER!
WHAT REPRESENTS JOY FOR ONE REPRESENTS GRIEF FOR ANOTHER!
AND SO IT GOES ON……!!
People living in these little societies seem to be so different and obviously if some extraterrestrial-ET (more decorated world for an alien) comes to this earth, it is going to get in a whole lot of confusion because we do look confused man! 😛
Suppose, just for a while, you have no religion at all, no background, no parents, nothing at all. Now when you see people dressed in the costumes that represent different religions and everyone going to meet God by staying that way, believe me you are going to laugh till you die.
HOW CAN THAT EVER HAPPEN?
WHEN DID GOD DESIGN SO MUCH OF DRESSES FOR HIS FOLLOWERS?
ON TOP OF THAT….EVERYONE IS FIGHTING FOR HIS OWN GOD….TRYING TO COMPETE WITH FOLLOWERS OF OTHER GODS…SOMETIMES EVEN THEY DO GET THIRSTY FOR EACH OTHER’S BLOOD TO PROVE THEIR GOD UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF THEIR GODMENS!
NO DOUBT SUCH PEOPLE ARE CONFUSED! OR MAY BE GODMEN WANT THEM TO STAY CONFUSED TO REALIZE THEIR OWN SELFISH MOTIVES
(When you recall the horrific incident of #peshawarkillings (mere mention of which trembles a humble soul) one gets even more confused because a set of people following a particular religion killed the younger generation of their own society) CAN’T BE JUSTIFIED AT ALL!!
Now that is just one side of the coin. After confusion comes yet another word which we call ‘lost’. So if we are confused does that mean we are lost? NO, not necessarily!
There are people living in this world in every society, each community and across all countries of this globe that actually have no time for getting confused. These are people who are working to fulfill a purpose in their lives.
They might have religion given to them like a certificate right when they were born. (ISN’T IT SO FUNNY THAT TO LEARN EVEN ABC, TO BECOME A DOCTOR, AN ENGINNER OR ANYTHING ELSE YOU NEED TO TAKE CLASSES, COMPETE AND THEN SUCCESSFULLY CLEAR YOUR EXAMINATIONS…ALL OF WHICH TAKES TIME…..
EVEN TO BECOME PARENTS AND ACTUALLY HAVE A CHILD YOU NEED TO REACH PUBERTY BUT TO BECOME A CHIRITIAN, A MUSLIM, A HINDU, A BUDDHIST, A SIKH AND SO ON…..YOU NEED NOT DO ANYTHING….YOU ARE JUST BORN ‘ANY OF THESE’…THAT’S ALL…AND OTHER SOCIETAL CATEGORIES WORSEN EVERYTHING. HINDUS KNOW THE BEST ABOUT SUCH CATEGORIES! PHEWWWWWW!)
So there ARE people who have these tags with them but they do not take them as tags for fighting a championship rather they join hands to serve humanity, care about nature and finally develop competencies that make them better as humans’ altogether. These people know that they need to get unified and share more of positive thoughts than combatting each other with plethora of IDEOLOGIES THAT ARE NEVER GOING US TO TAKE CLOSER TO GOD.
Getting to God, is a lone journey for everyone.
Just take an example of two siblings going to school. When they return to their home they have an option to fight or join their hands till they reach to their parents. Both will have to make a choice and continue their small journey. Imagine you as a parent of these two little kids. If they come to you, travelling all the way to home fighting and hurting each other;
WILL IT BE A PLEASING SIGHT FOR YOU? WOULD NOT YOU FEEL BAD? WOULD NOT YOU PUNISH BOTH THE KIDS FOR HURTING EACH OTHER AT THE SAME TIME FEELING MORE PAIN THAN THEM IN YOUR HEART??
I may be too minimal to say this but OUR DEAR GOD might share this same feeling when He see that His children are reaching to Him with so much of fight and negativity.
So how can you make things better? I could write another hundreds of words to answer this question but I won’t do that as I have something better to offer you.
Here is this little animated video that I watched sometime back. It simply and beautifully explains how people with differences can do things together. I would just say that do watch the video till the end!

DO NOT COMPETE USING RELIGIONS…
USE THEM IN UNISON TO KNOW YOUR GOD IN A BETTER WAY…
IN AN INTELLECTUAL WAY!
Stay blessed everyone and DO WATCH PK 🙂
