The Veneer!


Its so clear that we all exactly know that there is a plump inside every coconut! Not to talk about the whiteness part in that brown dusty potato. Have you ever tasted the bitter sweat of some bitter leaf? Have you every touched the thorny part of the rose? However, these are the bitter facts that confront us more often when we look and judge things with eyes so closed not with the sound state of mind.

To judge and understand the better side of the perpetuity – and find out the veneer sides where things don’t appear in their true forms and colour, it’s highly advised to contemplate over more than usual! If without a deep contemplation, we recklessly survey a package, we will definitely go down with the wreckage some days in the future if not by now that will cause more damage.

Who are the real humans? What is the true definition of today’s modern human? Facial feature, facial value, bold speech, sound promises may just be part of the deception very unfortunately. They may look sound by now but they destroy us for now and ever when they will get naked from behind their masks!

Most of these faces exist as can only find expression as an imperfect clone. Let them be who they really are without a sin cast the first stone. If these people get unmasked and their true colours get revealed from behind their dirty masks, the shock may not be expressed well enough to the extent that we imagine.

Why do we really hurl missives of the verbal insult everywhere around these days? Not talking of physical assault and leading in tyranny for ages – on those who have dared the consequence to face the light – and consequently shaming the dark nights – trying to make things and others stay in light – unveiling the mask and showing their true colours.

These people should be celebrated with accolades and glamour not with hatred.
In today’s mechanical age, some human became like machine and wants others to become too. Pushing people on the old ages of tyranny and barbarism rather than leading them towards an age grips with justice, equality, love, tolerance, unity, brotherhood and most importantly compassion.

The true heroes are not the ones spreading hatred, supersession, intolerance, annihilation and finally separation. But rather, the true heroes of this age would be the ones who are naturally exposed to faults and falls only for a better age that leads the humans towards compassion, tolerance, equality, justice, unity, brotherhood and humanity. However, in this age of ours, admitting to an error is tantamount to facing a ban for which you can be visited with terror.

When will that age come when the order of the day will be openness to all and not some? When you will show your nakedness to your brothers and all surroundings and be quite sure you will not hear it from others. When will that time come? When all human will be unmasked and transparent, without motives thwarted and bent just for the sack of humanity and human dignity?

We stay alert to see the age when we can see the coconut without the hard bark. We want to see the whiteness of potato from afar. We want to see the roses only not just the thorns in it. We do not want to confuse the taste of the bitter leaf with another then the best way to judge the true humans will be by their justified and reasonable actions!
