‘New Year, New Me’ looked like the flavor of 2017. I think if it’s the alcohol that makes people so positive around the outset of another year, I’d rather have them stay drunk throughout! How can it be “New Year, New Me”, with my old thoughts, old resentments, old beliefs, old opinions, views, etc?
If you have been following the headlines for the past 15 days, unfortunately, there is nothing new in the way we create news, in the way we present news, in the way we perceive news. The only thing that probably is changing faster is the hair colour trend!
If I had to pick only one fascinating aspect of us Humans- as we know today- out of the many that we have, it would be to defy something that is natural. Karan Johar’s coming-out story was quite the talk of the town this week. Whaaaaaaaat! All these years later, and we didn’t even know it! I didn’t see THIS coming! Did you?
Well, since ‘Koffee with Karan’ isn’t sizzling as much as Karan Johar would have wanted it to, we can totally trust him to find one way or the other to occupy all our free time – and with everyone talking about it, I can see that we have enough of it!
Karan Johar, in an excerpt from his autobiography called ‘An Unsuitable Boy” has hinted at being utterly scared of coming out in this country. For people who do not know, your sexual orientation is something that you naturally feel, and not something that you would “do to yourself” – and given the acumen of all the people in this world, a person would really be silly to actually not feel in a particular way and still fight the world!
But then, we are above nature! We are Humans. We even come before ‘nature’ in the dictionary. How can ‘nature’ defy our logic?! So if we don’t really account for the LGBT community, and render it unnatural, so it is. I mean if nature doesn’t change itself once we have called it unnatural, nature is inhuman! Of course!
It is rather inhuman to treat them as unnatural. All of a sudden today, a word that was used as an equivalent to ‘happiness’, cannot be said without a sneer anymore! And even after applying all of the little brains that I have, I cannot come up with one logical explanation to this behavior of ours! Never before have had I understood ‘Live and Let Live’ better.
The sooner ‘we’ take this authority that ‘we’ have given ‘ourselves’ to decide what stays, what doesn’t, and what stays at what position, away, the better will be the news, views and all our muse.
