GOD

What or who is God? What is his importance? Why did he create this world? If not he/she, then who? Is he the Supreme? Or is he just a belief? Is he just an imagination of the mortal human mind?

When put with the same question I would answer as God is the single greatest creation of the man; a very wise one at that. What better way to control the lesser mortals than the fear of a supreme power who created the world and is keeping a constant vigil; that every wrong deed had to be answered in the court of God. What better support for a man than God? That God will guide through the tough times. That he stands by us through thick and thin. What better way to explain death than to say God needed him/her? God is the answer to everything that this mortal mind and science cannot explain.

Looking at this then from the wise mans perspective; God is FAITH in powers higher than our own. God is just a belief. He exists only in our mind. What then is the need for God? Why not have faith on ourselves instead of looking it elsewhere? Why not accept death as an act of nature - the single best tool of evolution? Why not be conscious of the right and wrong? Why look for sanctification of every one of our deeds? Why not have an unshakeable value system instead?

Well that leaves us with a clear answer. God is just a belief, the strongest one. But the wise man needs his divine presence to keep order in this world of chaos.

One question remains unanswered still – who created this world and this beautiful thing called Life? Most definitely not man or his imagination. Science might answer the formation of the universe. But the creation of Life still remains a mystery – both to the scientists and the philosophers. This is the only reason I cannot deny the existence of God.

Kuch Bachkane Sawal...

Kabhi bachpan mein kisi hum-umar ko bheekh maangte dekha tha. Dil mein tab bas ek hi baat uthi thi – “Uski jagah main hota to kya hota? Uski jagah main kyon nahi? Agar main apne ghar paida nahi hua hota to shayad main hi inki jagah ho sakta tha. Paida to sab ek se masoom hi hote hain. Phir kisi ke haath mein chocolate to kisi ke haath mein katora kyon hai? ” Yeh sawal chahe jitne hi bachkane ho, inka ‘satisfactory’jawab shayad hi koi de payega. Shayad ‘philosophers’ bhi nahi. Kya pata woh in sawalon ka jawab dhondhte dhoondte hi ‘philosopher’ bane ho.

In sawalon ka jawab to tab mila nahi. Kabhi kisi se poocha bhi nahi. Bade hue aur thodi duniya dekhi to ise duniya ka dastoor samajhne lage. Logon ne bhi kuch aisa hi keh kar tal diya. Lekin man shant naa hua. Bachpan ke un sawalon ne mere ‘innocent mind’ pe ek ‘permanent’ chaap chodi thi. Shayad inhi sawalon ka jawab dhoondte dhoondte har bachcha duniya ko badalne aur acha banane ka sapna dekhta hai. Bachpan mein to har cheez khoobsoorat hi hoti hai. Duniya bhi utni hi khoobsoorat kyon naa ho? Aakhir wo to hum sab ka ghar hai. Har masoom ke man mein ek naa ek baar yeh khayal to aata hi hoga. Bade hone pe kuch log is naadan sapne se bahar nikal jaate hain. Soocha jaye to woh apni ‘sensitivity’ ko dil mein kahin door chupa dete hain.

Kuch log in sapnon mein hi kahin kaid ho ke reh jaate hai.

Sapne dekhna kab bura hota hai. Yeh hamare sapne hi to hain jo humen is duniya se door apni ek 'perfect world' mein le jaa, pal bhar ki hi sahi, anokhi khushi dete hain. Lekin jab sapna duniya ke dastoor ko badalne ka ho to sirf hamari khushi nahi judi us sapne ke saath. Logon ne pehle bhi koshish to ki hogi hi. Akhir hum duniya ke pehle 'dreamer' to hain nahi. Lekin duniya chodo, apne aap ko hi badal paana aasan kaam nahi. Sach to yahi hai ki duniya ko badalne ka pehla kadam apne aap ko us roop mein dhaalna hai jo is 'seemingly unassailable' kaam ko karne ke kaabil ho, jo us-se judi izzat ko ‘deserve’ karta ho.

Dil mein jhaank ke dekhun to maine pehla kadam abhi rakha bhi nahi. Kaise rakhna hai pata bhi nahi.
