HAMLET!


HAMLET
What intrigues me is that each perception appears the closest to the TRUTH. Hamlet had lost a MAN whom he adored as irreplaceable, and that Man had lost the woman of his own affections to a Household Relative (brother) creating a suspicion that the Death did not HAPPEN, but was made to happen.
And to boot, in which conspiracy this woman was involved. A Clytemnestra in deed and playing a Jocasta nonchalantly, both rolled into one.
A mind that had seen the woman as a mother, to see her as the soft Imperial flesh on an anvil in which Claudius’ hammer would pommel. Where does he stand now? Anymore in awe of any woman? – Nay. He has found that functionally her femininity had to be hammered to obedience on the anvil of raw sex.
Hamlet’s perceptions have altered. Gertrude wants him to see his father’s “death” as a common thing. He thinks it is UNCOMMON.
Claudius could have not outlived his brother much and the fruits given, when savored without teeth, would the juiciness appreciate, without the pleasure of the crackle of the crispness of the fruit. And it was no small thing for Claudius, that a woman who was out of bounds to the mind, would crawl up to Claudius with seductive sluttishness to not only be hammered, but eagerly made to savor, swallow and/or drain the scum of her brother-in-law’s lust and prize it as a possession to be relished and slimed between her fingers and smelt deeply. To watch her prize him above his killed brother was delirious. She even might have spoken freely to Claudius about the foibles in private moments with her dead brother-in-law (husband had become brother-in-law, only thing is that the husband was dead!)
Gertrude had no option. She had to reconcile her UNFAITHFULNESS with PERMANENCE. Sooner or later she would get caught, if the affair continued, she had to LEGITIMIZE her fallen status. A NEGATIVE REDEMPTION, two errors get multiplied to become a right. The only way is to conspire to eliminate the FIRST MAN, after all, only the first was betrayed and could accuse anyone of BETRAYAL. Claudius was the beneficiary betrayer of the successful implementation of the conspiracy. He gained the kingdom and the former Queen. A double slam. That UNFAITHFULNESS can be given a permanent status only if the object which continues to be the source of the GUILT has to be made to disappear. URIAH had to GO, otherwise the CHILD would show up and beg for a father, who could have never had access to reach his mother. David, oops! Claudius had to kill or be hanged later if his brother and the kingdom found out.

The TRAGEDY of Hamlet’s father is that even Hamlet doesn’t trust him!
Where is the Truth?
Easy to resolve it through Ethics, but why make that a yardstick? Is it a must? and why not see from each person’s compulsion because of an INDELIBLE PAST? Things get ARTISTIC thereafter. Read HAMLET……..

Uterine siblings!


Is there any history to the coinage,  ‘UTERINE SIBLINGS’ ?

No, not that I have ever heard or read of. I am going to reconstruct the history of UTERINE SIBLINGS.

In a particular society near the present day Virudhunagar, was a community where men happily followed polygyny and women acquiesced to their lot. Their eyes had not yet been opened to perceive that to DEMAND PHYSICAL FIDELITY FROM A MAN WAS NEITHER AN IDEA, in fact if a woman could command the undivided physical interest only in one man, then that woman would be worshiped upon her death, nor a practice.  Therefore, it was a posthumous honour that no living woman prioritized nor desired such a far vision. Whatever the hardship, darkness had to come and sleep would envelop her day’s grievances.

In this background, women had to distinguish their own children without offending the sensitivity of man that any of his women would ever dare to distinguish any of his children, as others’ and mine! They were all HIS, that’s ALL what mattered!

In this scenario, women devised to INCLUDE men in the identification of the parentage of their children, they called it SIBLINGS. From Children they became siblings, indicating the same parentage. They did not want to say that the children were born to both the parents or only one of the parents had been biologically associated. They brought the men in this word SIBLINGS, all knew that a woman was absolutely necessary for a birth, whereas there NEED NOT BE ANY CERTAINTY of the participation of a MAN. Anyone could have been the biological male parent. The society had no business to involve, support or be seen as supporting the determinability of determining the male parent.

Then the WOMEN who had one man exclusively devoted to her through out his life was to be honoured and then WOMEN started recognizing the other children born to their male biological partner. That coinage has been the beginning of a WOMAN respecting the Co-children she had with him. Thereby POLYGYNY was in vogue in that village, the name i shall not name now, as that would make the story more PREDETERMINED. It has to evolve, but don’t think I do not know it – remember it is my creation, and when i will create is my privilege and I shall never ever abdicate that privilege! Whatever has happened out of nothing is CREATION and whatever would become out of nothing is also CREATION!

DAVID, A SHEPHERD?

Christians in their eagerness to believe in MIRACLES make even RESULTS of  EFFORTS, which have fructified thru HOPE, to be classified as MIRACLES.

A good example is the story of KING DAVID, who was the second King of Israel and finds mention in the books of Samuel, Kings and Chronicles of THE BIBLE.

For those not familiar with the story of David, let me recount a brief life story of one of the greatest symbols of Jewish History. His father’s name was Jesse and he had 7 brothers, who were all elder to him. Being the last and and ignored by his father Jesse, DAVID was rather consigned to tending to the few sheep which Jesse had. He was from the tribe of Judah.

David’s sculpture by Michelangelo leaning on one leg with a curled up fingers in the nude oozes with manliness. But his left hand is bent at…

There is a concept called Distance between the States, which determines in an affirmative /socialistic way the forwardness and backwardness of  States in India, which is the pivot used in determining the  allocability of central revenues to the different States in India.
TAMILNADU has been apportioned 4.02% (14th Finance Commission) of the allocable central revenues, instead of 4.97% (13th Finance Commission) for the previous year/s, as per  the Finance commission.
That is a FULL 20% LESS THAN THE LAST FISCAL.
Is this a JUST way to INVENT SUCH SKEWED FORMULAS TO DOWNGRADE PROGRESSIVE PRO-POOR STATES LIKE TAMILNADU?
I think not.

Let us determine the allocability of Central Revenues based on CONTRIBUTION,  SAVINGS, WORK CULTURE, SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, NON-DISCRIMINATION, BURDENS ASSUMED BY THE STATE BECAUSE OF LACK OF RESOURCES, SCIENTIFIC TEMPERAMENT, SECULARISM, PROHIBITION, & PROGRAMME IMPLEMENTATION and such parameters.
Feeding lazybones with sumptuous free meals leads to eternal liabilities in the long run.

Let us take the states which have been determined for allocating LESSER PERCENTAGE of central revenues over the previous determination by the Finance Commission:SHARE OF

STATES IN CENTRAL REVENUES Percentage wise:

2.          Himachal                  0.78%                  0.71%                0.07%                  -8.974%

____________________________________________________________

There are 9 states which are going to receive lesser percentage than their previous year/s allocation from the Union’s Revenues
Is this reasonable considering the fact that TN’s contribution to the national income must be over 10% of the allocable central revenues.
If new schemes are brought out and successfully implemented by the state government & inflation is defeated through shrewd planning by TN,  instead of rewarding socialistic measures successfully implemented, formulas are INVENTED TO DOWNGRADE THE MORALE OF A SUPER STATE.
What a pity my countrymen!
No other state is being penalized this much, just because they are successful!

By getting 20% less than the previous year’s central revenues, TN should consider itself the RICHEST STATE IN INDIA! or is it DISCRIMINATION?

MARE FAIR!


MARE FAIR
Once in a village a fair for all the mares in that county was held. Some brought wild mares, some blinkered mares and some blinkered & bridled ones. However they were all allowed to mingle with each other so that they could share their experiences.
The Wild Mares said that they had the most colourful lives and could go wherever they fancied, eat whenever they wanted and prance around without any limitations except their own capabilities. The Blinkered ones said that a life without limitations would have made them unfocused and they would have frittered their energies on aimless wanderings. The blinkered and bridled ones looked highly disciplined and said that for the other mares it might seem as if they had surrendered their WILL to their RIDERS and had abdicated their selves! But to the surprise of the other Mares, it gloried on the successes of their Riders and even started narrating their victories in human warfare, wins in races and even on their control and character in showjumping. In fact a mare called Bucephalus ( double L would have made it a horse), was proud of its master that it said: I am fed the best of foods which humans hanker, as my master’s wins in battles are attributable to my skill, speed and most of all my ability not only to take orders but so take decisions to save him in difficult times, which he might not have been able to foresee.
Each group of Mares, was looking at the other with a certain contempt, the Wild Mares thought of the Blinkered ones as having ‘hampered vision’, the Blinkered ones thought of the Wild ones as being lawless and of the bridled ones as having no will of their own. The blinkered & bridled mares thought of the Wild ones as Purposeless and of the Blinkered ones as having the focus in Vision but not purposeful in Deeds.
Anyway, keeping the contempt of each group to itself, they asked each other: But why don’t we have any Mare which is merely bridled but not blinkered among us?
The Mares were unable to find an agreeable reason and went to Rowther, who had been in the business of dealing horses in Tamil Nadu and asked the question: WHY DONT WE FIND ANY BRIDLED MARES WITHOUT BLINKERS?
The wise Rowther said: MARES MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO SEE CERTAIN THINGS IF THEY ARE TO BE BRIDLED, OTHERWISE THERE WOULD BE A SERIOUS RIFT BETWEEN THE RIDER AND THE MARE.
The Rowther added, the bridle is the culmination of the blinker and you mares see merely the reins, but it is that BIT WHICH IS PUT IN THE MOUTH OF THE MARE WHICH KEEPS THE MARE UNDER CONTROL.
The wild mares and the blinkered ones kind of felt sorry for the Bridled and blinkered mares.
But the bridled and blinkered mares were busy grinding the horse gram attached to their heads. They were busy eating, lest when the bit and bridle are stuck in their mouths!
The other mares said: why do they call that as HORSE GRAM and not MARE GRAM?
Any answers for this one?

Nowhere is India ranked this low by the WORLD BANK report except for ENFORCING CONTRACTS. Why is this so? The reason is neither hard to find nor is it complicated. The reason is EACH INDIAN’S…

All the Cigarette packets, sold in India, scream the Governmentally compelled negative advertisement, ” SMOKING KILLS.” How far is this advertisement legally, ethically and medically correct?

Firstly, the seller of the cigarette is compelled to state things against the very product the company/firm is selling.

Secondly, the Central Government levies Excise duty on Tobacco products and thereby benefits REVENUE-WISE from the sale of tobacco products.

Thirdly, the moment one steps into a hospital for any check-up, the first and invariable question asked is, “ARE YOU A SMOKER?” That makes the Physician’s job simpler. He now knows what to look for! He is taught in his medical school how a smoker’s lungs is clogged, how his arteries are blocked and how the tar and nicotine have spoilt his whole system. So he starts with a PFT (Pulmonary Function Test……) , a scan on all his arteries, especially of his limbs and…
