Face To Face With Creativity

Face To Face With Creativity

There is a saying in Hindi 'Jahan Na Pahunche Ravi, Wahan Pahunche Kavi' which means that a poet could reach at places where even sun couldn't. It means that our imagination and creativity take us to places otherwise unreachable. It points out things in us, in our surroundings which we either ignores or don't see at all due to a veil of some traditions,religion and culture. Creativity highlights the beauty or the ugliness of certain things hiding behind the mask of ignorance owing to certain societal pressures. 

Many incidents recently like attack on french magazine Charlie Hebdo which killed journalists and cartoonists for depicting Prophet Mohammad's cartoon, violent demonstration against movies like PK  and Ram Rahim 's (MSG ), ban on books by Salman Rushdie, Perumal Murugan, Tasleema Nasreen, Dan Brown,etc for defaming religions and many such acts by so called moral police have tried to curb creativity and openly condemned it. This made me contact her to chat with me for her views on all these controversy related to her. Here is an excerpt of this conversation :



Me : I can see that your wounds are still fresh and present all over you. Which one hurts you the most?
Creativity (CRTY): (laughs) : It is like asking a mother which child she like the most. All wounds are direct attack on me and hurts a lot. But you see that they have never healed from the beginning of the time so I am habitual to them. Now absence of these wounds hurts the most than their presence.

Me : Is it right to attack you for the reasons they( attackers) give?
Crty : Do you watch reality shows?
Me: Yes.
Crty : Do you find reasons given by contestant to nominate each other right?
Me: No.
Crty : Yes you are right. But they still nominate using these silly reasons just to save themselves. Similarly these religious fanatics and moral contractor attack me to run their shops without understanding what I am trying to depict which if they understand make their whole existence worthless.

Me: But don't you think hurting some one's religious sentiments is not right and doing that again and again is like making mockery of them?
Crty“Call people to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good teaching, and argue with them in the most courteous way” [16:125] , this is what Allah says in Quran they can argue and change the views of my preparators. Dedicate your being to god. He is the one to be ultimately relied upon. Those who know of his support are forever free from fear,worry and sorrow, these are Lord Krishna's words from Bhagvat Gita. If they were close to god than why they fear. In reality I am close to Him. I have no sorrows,fear and worry.

Me: Hmm! You possesses good knowledge of each religion then why you lampoon them?
Crty: That's what the reason I lampoon them because I know them. There is no religion which is perfect only god is perfect. These religious fanatics believes that they have become perfect which in a way is insult to god and a greater sin in every religion. So they are defaming god not I. Moreover if you are closed to criticism you are stale and dead.

Me : You talking like you are in frequent contact of God.
Crty: Yes I am. I am in His touch. My preparator are in His touch. He gives us the permission, he allows us do do what we are doing. If it was not His will we wouldn't have power to do such big projects.

Me : Any messages for anybody.
Crty: Live and let live. Life is tough and full of problems. Don't consider me as any problem. I will always prove useful to humanity and society. So don't try to kill,hurt,curb me because I will never die,nor kill only changes forms and yes I would also like to thank you who nowadays want to talk to me. 

I think she had made it clear that she and not the so called saver of religions and cultures are close to god and His creations. But still I think it is not right to hurt some one's sentiments but then truth always hurts. So lets creativity flow in it's own course.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Lynch Raj

Lynch Raj
An aged man keeping meet in home, a milkman transporting cattle for milking, rumors of child kidnapper, a policeman conducting his duties or you just innocent Muslim boys going home for Eid, this give enough reason to criminal mobs to lynch innocents without any respect and fear for the law. From last three years since the Modi government came in power these lynching of innocent people by mob has increased manifolds many of which are conducted by radicalized Hindu youths in the name of protecting ‘Mother Cow’ and their tradition forgetting about innocent humans they have killed in this process. Latest incident happened with three Muslim brothers going home in a train from Delhi to Mathura after Eid shopping in Delhi. A group of 10-12 men between 7-8 pm attacked them and stabbed one Junaid to death while two others are battling for life in Delhi hospital. The brutality with which they were attacked and the hatred filled in the criminal mob can be judge by seeing the blood pai…

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4


Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also. 
Now talking about m…
