Left or Right or Middle…   1 comment

The Center

The Balance

Left and Right

If I speak and write about the deprived and subjugated sections of our society and about their legitimate rights, I’m considered as the Leftist and at times more forthright and call a spade a spade, I’m treated by some as Extreme Left and forced to lose my right side balance.

If I speak and write about the poor pious ‘Brahmins’ (a much controversial term indeed, and subject to intense debate) and about other disadvantaged (disadvantaged because of being on “Dharmic” path) sections belonging to the so called upper rung in the Indian social hierarchy, and about the time tested Indian ethical and moral values and the impeccable Hindu (the religion which I rightfully belong to and proud of) religious thoughts and the precepts of its highest plane of the Vedantic tradition, I’m mercilessly fixed in the frame of fundamentalism and called the Rightist and driven to lose sight of the left.

I always tread the path of the middle or the center, totally unattached to either the left or the right (I’m either of the two and at the same time neither of the two) but draw my inspiration from the both through much balancing act (as in a tight rope walk). This journey is often fraught with the risk of falling / slipping into the either of the sides and incur the wrath of the other. I can’t afford losing the intellectuals of the left wing and the spiritualists of the right wing who constantly provide me with ample and balanced food for my genuine thoughts. Both of them are like my two eyes and fortunately, the vision is the ONLY ONE.

The center has its own magic and music. I always thank God for putting me in the center and for giving me the sense and the sensibility and the strength to take both of the two extremes (in their purity and positivity) along with me. When both of them are balanced and compensated for by each other, I’m sure we can see the heaven amidst us.

Most of us are accustomed to see the things with only one eye because of our upbringing and the conditioning all around us, and thinking our vision is the only vision that is true, perfect and an ideal one. This is not true in every time, every place and every situation, but it’s also true that we at times need to see with one eye in order to aim at our target (as in a shooting range), and fix the problem.

We have our own comfort zones either in the left or in the right (whether in the core or at the periphery) which we always prefer to take refuge in, long nurtured by our god fathers, and try to speak and write from there tightly anchored to those special zones. We dare not come out and try to feel what it is like outside. These comfort zones I prefer to call (if I may borrow the term from the field of postmodern Indian Economics, and slightly modify it) the “Special Emotional Zones” (SEZ’s).

A true person dares to crossover the boundaries and boldly stands for the truth, come what may. What we need today is a cosmopolitan perspective with utmost religious tolerance and harmony. As long as there is truth and genuine concern in our thoughts, words and deeds, we’ll be acknowledged. Truth is always one. It cannot be two or more. Truth always prevails and Truth always triumphs.

Hope everyone of us contributes his / her own bit in upholding the TRUTH.

Truth is always simple and plain and so the Truth is Divine!

Man has to manifest the divinity which is already there deep inside him / her!!
