According to the Bible, ADAM was made of clay but the woman Eve was created out of the man’s bone. And it shows in their ATTITUDE. Adam was CREATED, there was only one model available and that was God. So God made Man in his own image, but the Woman he created for Adam’s companionship. So he fashioned her after the needs of the MAN. A kind of FIT to a man’s needs.

Since she was made of a tougher material, she thought she deserved a better station in life and proceeded on her MISSION in engaging with a small talk with the serpent. The serpent was “SUBTIL” (subtle in Modern English). Subtlety is the ability to test the waters with an escape route, before the other person identifies the real motive.

Look at what the serpent asked EVE: Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?(Genesis Chapter 3 verse 1)

The serpent DOES NOT KNOW the commandment of God. Serpent is making himself knowledgeable about the proscribed TREE by asking Eve a question.Eve identifies the proscribed tree and is IMMEDIATELY met with a CONTRARY STATEMENT from the serpent against the Commandment of God. The serpent says:-And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die.

This statement is followed by an ATTRACTIVE PROPOSITION by the serpent:For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

The seeds of death were sown with those words. In this play SERPENT- exeunt!

From thereon the serpent had NO ROLE to play. This thought was enough. Eating of the fruit would make her like gods. And Eve ate the fruit first and then gave some to Adam too. So did the change take place the moment the fruit was eaten by Eve first or did they become “wise” after both of them ate? The answer is that the change was INSTANTANEOUS and the WOMAN DISCOVERED that She was naked as well as her man ADAM. But Adam must have protested that he wasn’t naked, before he ate the fruit, so Eve must have convinced Adam by telling him that HE (ADAM) could realize himself to be “naked” only if he shared the fruit that she had taken a bite of. Adam couldn’t take the NAGGING anymore.ADAM ACCEDED.

EVE was repeatedly telling him that he was naked and all he had to do was take a bite a to REALIZE his status. That is what BONE does to CLAY even today . The nagging must have been so bad, that to buy PEACE the poor fellow took a bite and we are all here tilling our grounds and telling our tales.

So i’d love Pinkola Estes, Germaine Greers and Simone de Beauvoirs ( feminist champs!) to know that MEN love to perfect the available  SYSTEMS, but women go around wanting to discover the NAKEDNESS behind the systems and spoil even those systems which are functioning well. And men to buy PEACE, become victims heeding to the nagging of their WOMEN.

(Listen ladies, don’t take it to yr heart, it is merely an interpretation of events based on high probability!! LOL)

Ram Gopal Varma and his guts!!

It needs guts and loads of it to say what Ram Gopal Varma says despite being in the show biz. His latest interview in THE BANGALORE MIRROR states: forced to make a choice between a beautiful woman and an intelligent woman, i’d rather go for the beautiful one, as i am already intelligent and there is no need of inteliigence in a woman!

GUTS is because he makes his personal preference appear to be the NORM. Let us look at it this way, probably had he been great looking and lagging behind in intelligence probably he’d have preferred “intelligent woman” (pardon my oxymoron!) and would have given reasons as to why he preferred an INTELLIGENT WOMAN. I am a strong believer that a WOMAN NEEDS BRAINS LIKE A FISH NEEDS  BICYCLE. She has to be beautiful, not outwardly, nor like the Paulian prescription at I Timothy 2:9:

In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

but beautifully “expressive”. It is like the beauty of a flower that strives not to capture your attention, but silently “IS” expressing its beauty for the connoisseur to appreciate.It is that BEAUTY which is ELEVATING. Intelligence in a woman makes her EARTHY and not ETHEREAL. It is that ETHEREAL-ness in a woman which makes her beautiful. She makes “choices” but declines to give reasons because her reasons might hurt others, she is “kind” but never allows others to “use” her, she is “wily” but clothes her actions with excitement and tears that no man would dare attribute evil motives to her ( remember how  Eve ate the forbidden fruit and after having transgressed God’s command “gave some of it to Adam” too and ensured that ADAM was also guilty of the same transgression! Made him an accomplice sweetly!!), she resolves her conflicts in silence and well integrates her solution with emotionally charged tantrums, apologizes for inane infringements but keeps all those criminal thoughts and deeds to herself! That is what makes a WOMAN beautiful. It is this compendium of qualities which make her BEAUTIFUL in the eyes of a MAN. A severe “challenge” to his INTELLIGENCE. SHE is an ENIGMA, as the man needs proof and the woman conceals it with an “exterior” which defies the tantalizing “proof” that he supposes he discovered!!

Beauty is that. Let us go to the movie GONE WITH THE WIND and see those 2 women characters- Scarlet O’Hara and Melanie. The opening words of Margaret Mitchell in the book is , “ Scarlet O’Hara was not beautiful, but..” and goes on to show how beautiful Scarlet O’Hara was. It is such “beauty” that probably Ram Gopal Varma has been talking about.

My lady friends especially THE ONES on the side of the Woman’s lib would argue that MEN FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE WITH MORE BEAUTIFUL BUT LESS INTELLIGENT WOMEN. Maybe they are right, and as a wag put it MEN SELDOM MAKE PASSES AT A WOMAN WHO SURPASSES!

Let me conclude with one of the statements of one of the greatest researchers of human mind said about woman: Sigmund Freud- “Despite my 30 years of research into the feminine soul (pardon his presumption- as if they had one!), i have not yet been able to answer ………the great question that has never been answered: What does a woman want?”
