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…

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip


Amritsar is the city of Golden Temple the sacred pilgrimage for Sikhs. The area around is recently developed beautifully to promote tourism by renovating it with related themes and including some modern day structures which compliment the place nicely. Historical Jalianwala Bagh where Britishers fired mercilessly on innocent Indians also lies in that area and it now has a monument as a remembrance to those who killed in that massacre. Another important thing in the area is Partition Museum build inside Town Hall which encloses memories of partition with having things donated by people effected by the tragedy along with the historical accounts of that time. But photography is not allowed inside the museum. 






I also visited Ranjit Singh Panorama Museum which housed weapons of Ranjit Singh army and has some depictions of Raja Ranjit Singh's life through painting and models. There is also Gobindgarh Fort which you must visit for the 7D film on life of R…

My Brother,My Role Model

My Brother,My Role Model

In the course of life it is not the one man or one moment which inspires to be better and the best but anyone you come across in your life teaches you something valuable. These lessons we learn from them improves our lives and make us better making these men our role model whom we tries to imitate.

When I was a child my families financial condition was not very good. My father suffered a huge loss in his business. One or the other borrower queues daily at our door for their money while we didn't have enough money to afford even food. My father was shattered, it was at that time my mother and brother stood for him. My brother leaved his study and started learning some work. He learned machine embroidery work in only four months for which others took a year or so to learn and then he started his own work with some financial support from my parents who at that time opened a grocery shop.

I was very young at that time but I still remembered that my brother ha…
