Real Togetherness

Real Togetherness

Indiblogger brandcover


‘It’s a small world!’ Really! We don’t know our neighbors, our distant relatives and are unaware of people in our societies and localities and we say that it’s a small world. Perhaps we started believing our smart phone or computer screen as the world because for many of us it is the world. Our friends live in it, we have sessions of hangout there, we grow our circles, poke each other, send hugs and kisses and even share our feelings without being aware of each other’s reality in the real life. We have forgotten what real togetherness means.

Real togetherness for me is doing things collectively. Being together in good or bad times and stand for each other in time of trouble. It was togetherness of human species which resulted in the growth of humans as supreme force on earth. We befriended nature collectively for helping us in our every endeavor. Nature remained our binding force by giving us opportunity to grow together like in farming, sailing, fishing, etc. Today when we hardly get any chance to come together nature could help us in doing so. 

Disturbing natural balance often give us floods, droughts, tsunami, earthquake and many other natural disaster but these disasters brings us together as a community and as human beings and if this destructive side of nature could join us as humans the positive side of it could do wonders for us. In villages children accompany their parents to farms which bring them closer to nature but in cities there is no such practice. Parents are so busy in life that they don’t find time to spend with their children, if they took out some time to indulge their children in planting seeds or watering in garden area or just accompany them to gardens and park to admire natural beauty in flowers and birds then they could experience a real togetherness with you. 

Kissan India provides seeds to plant in kitchen gardens or society garden which could bring the whole locality together for their care. This video gives a glimpse of this togetherness. Efforts by an old man and some children were appreciated and accompanied by whole society as one. They come together leaving behind their smart phones and busy lives in growing and saving the plants. (See video to know more.)





Real togetherness is when we enjoyed doing something together and thus realize the beauty of conversation and interactions with each other. It is not difficult if we give ourselves sometime for this, an opportunity to bring out our real social side as human and not the virtual social side which we display all over the net and which many times is not the correct resemblance of our personalities. When we come together we discover different aspects of not only others but of ourselves as well.

  1. You're absolutely right, we should go out of the box we imposed to ourselves not aware that all the amazing things and feelings are out of it.

I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

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…

RIP Tom Alter

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
