Beauty & Brain

In Dil Se on August 29, 2011 at 3:39 pm

These two words are mostly considered as oxymoron when used for girls. A beautiful girl is mostly assumed to be a dumb and we don’t expect any visual delight from a girl talking sci-fi stuff. A girl with beauty and brain is as rare as a hair over Sehwag’s head. Even if a damsel is one of this kind she becomes too manly to be called as a girl. No wonder there are more blonde jokes than nerdy humors.

But for some people size of bra-in matters more than size of bra. A girl quoting Gandalf is considered hotter than a girl with beach blonde hair. If a girl sends a torrent link on FB then these people are instantly in love with her. They don’t bother about how she looks or dresses or even if she takes a bath every day or not. What matters more is how she can be a pain in ass to your nerdy, self declared Tech-savy friend. They want this girl in their life, They can fantasize to fuck her brains out than to get a free entry to playboy Mansion. for them hotness does not matter as long as she beats you in a game of Scrabble.

The madness over a brainy girl is justifiable. Beauty fades with time but intelligence is refined with age. A person who understands your intellectual and emotional needs gives the greatest pleasure on earth, ‘The Peace of mind’. Imagine the one of your girl friends to whom you can forward a ‘TED’ link and discuss it for hours over the phone or another who is discussing sex and the city and bitching about it’s characters! What will you prefer?

I think society has great contribution in making a beautiful girl dumb. Signs of a girl’s sexual attractiveness gets visible as soon as her t-shirt starts to leave contact of her stomach, and drop freely from her prominent feminine curls. Many hungry male eyeballs stare at her irrespective of her age or relation. More good looking a girl is more she has to face these lolling men. As she grows older she realizes that Men can be slaved by feminine grace and beauty. She tries to preserve her beauty, try to enhance it, she envies anyone who is more popular or beautiful, all her intelligence and brain power works for one goal. Be more popular, more beautiful and get more men to follow her.

Now when so many people are following her, looking up to her owing to her beauty and popularity. A beautiful girl becomes more conscious about her social status and social appearance. She becomes self centered and self pampering. Studies and intellectual upbringing takes a back seat, beauty and fashion takes preference. Adoring parents, over complementing peers and drooling members of society does not let them to learn and live the life hard way. They are always there when she needs any help.Catch her even before she falls.

Dumbness grows and develops like this in early teenage, It becomes prominent when nerdy geeks (males and females alike) make it an issue to overshadow the beauty and defame her. A not so beautiful girl (because of her girly instincts) actually envies her beauty and emotionally harass her. As the time ticks years away things change and life becomes hard, she tries to keep and hold her beauty, her youth and charm. Botox, creams and cosmetic surgeons earn from this helpless struggle. And then when life starts to fall apart, boobs hang and tummy slackens these girl meet their worst fear. “Loneliness”. The depression comes along and finally mental illness.

May be what I am saying here is a bit drastic, little unrealistic and too much dramatic. But look around, see and observe. Why a guy or girl becomes or acts dumb? Why there is more probability of finding a good looking guy or girl dumb? What makes them so ignorant and so negligent about some things so trivial and so obvious? How can you make yourself a bit more presentable and acceptable among your geeky friends? How your over pampered child can sustain the race of higher education? How it can save itself from witty harassment?

I don’t know how many will read this and out of them how many will agree to me. May be I am wrong or may be I think too much. But what ever it is this is what I feel and Writing that matter the most to me!

A Rat Story

In Story on August 25, 2011 at 2:36 pm

In a land far far near to us there was a rat-colony. 1 billion rats in a very big farm. The farm was huge. The farmer was an intelligent guy. He diversified his production. Someplace he planted cash crops and somewhere food grains. The rats would live in his farm. They had borders and limit just like a big country. Depending upon the availability of the resources to the rats they had chosen their occupation. Some rats were trading cash crops and getting rich, some were harvesting and storing food grains. Merchant rats would buy food from one area and sell it to the commercial area. Rats who were into trading and living in cash rich areas became educated. They learned the tricks of trade and knew that money rules. On the other hand food harvesting rats were uneducated, they were working hard and long but were not paid enough to get better schooling or any awareness like the rich rats. Their standard of living was drowning, less money meant less facilities for them, which in turn meant more hard work and lesser intellectual growth.

Farmer was living in a developing country. He had to produce more food to satisfy hunger of his countrymen. So he planted more grains and paddy. The cash crops were small but his profit margin was higher from them. Farmer would give all facilities and his earnest attention towards the cash crops. These blessings from farmer meant good business for trading rats but that also meant only few among 1 billion to be benefited. Majority rats who were harvesting and storing food were uneducated, living in adverse conditions and working hard but earning very less.

Rich rats would take advantage of this. They would exploit these poor ones and build there empire, they would grow rich and intelligent, while poor one would grow poor and stay ignorant. Owing to their near foolish ignorance they were manipulated by rich and powerful ones, making the exploitation and injustice more prominent than ever. The economical barrier between the rats was increasing and farm harmony was becoming unstable.

In the mean time farmer’s developing country progressed. He started producing more cash crops, which in turn caused more rats to go into trading and become educated and more intelligent. The Neo-Rich rats understood the anarchy and started demonstrating against it. They demanded and eventually established a system which would keep the rich rats in reins of Bureauc-rats. Bureauc-rats were the ultimate authority. They were chosen from rats and were representatives of their race or area. They had power bestowed upon them by their followers, their merciers, they would use that power to keep the rich in control as well as maintaining their authority among their followers. The Bureauc-rats were now means of exploiting the rich as well as the poor.

But they had to pay price for that. Being the rulers of and elected from Democ-rats, these Bureauc-rats had to satisfy them, control them and sometimes even crush them to keep them under their power. The money required for doing so would come from Rich-rats which in turn will obtain from poor-rats. The cycle of exploitation and power hunger grew so much so more that it trembled and unsettled the minds of few other neo-educated rats.

They observed that the Bureauc-rats, whom they believed to be honest and protectors from exploitation by rich rats, have turned their back. They are now just earning money from rich and using it to stay in power. Bureauc-rats are unmoved by any force or any pressure from Democ-rats, they were just exploiting rich and poor alike. But neo-educated rats were helpless, they could not move an inch towards Bureauc-rats to harm them or even touch them cause the system by which the farm operated itself was entirely corrupt.

Harvesting rats were too poor or too ignorant to know anything about their exploitation, They used to consider their representative chosen on the basis race, area, language or dynasty as their leader and do whatever they can to put him in power and make him a Democ-rat. The Democ-rat so chosen when elected into ruling party, and becoming part of the ruling committee would then become a Bureauc-rat. The Bureauc-rat has to maintain his position. He would do that buy satisfying his loyal rats. As a natural tendency he would prefer  rats of his race, his area, his language. He would keep them satisfied or keep them horrified to stay in power. He may use any illicit method to obtain what he wanted the most, the power.

The young rats who saw all this and learned knew one thing, The power will come from money. Doesn’t matter if you are earning it from right way or wrong. They started paying bribes and asking for black money. No one cared for law or the government. Big trading companies would literally buy the Bureauc-rats and keep them in their service who in turn guaranteed Bureauc-rats the power. Each rat was bribing and the whole system was a mess.

The farmer was fed up of so many rats in his farm. He called up a sage to get rid of this rat menace. The sage has power to read animal behavior and understand their doings. He saw the Rat system. He saw how some intelligent rats are already fleeing to other farms where there is more security and a better standard of living. How some harvesting rats are committing suicide succumbing under the anarchy of middle rats. How the inflation is leaving rats hungry and kids dying. How Other field rats are attacking them and looting their hard earned food. How there is hell everywhere.

The sage went back to the farmer. He said that the devil of corruption has already infected the rats, they will no longer live in your farm. You don’t have to move a finger against them to kill and drive them away from your farm. They have already moved to path of their extinction and sooner or later you will get rid of them. And they themselves will be there to blame.
