I wish I could be like…the list is endless since it can be any person with a special ability because this ability or calibre robs off an important area in the main platform of my mind. Such people inspire and lure me and I adore them, though I scarcely adopt any of their means and methods. Many an occasion I have felt that I am a misfit in the crowd of such special people. I know very well that not even a grass herb is futile in the short span of its existence in this world. The microbes, considered to be so fierce have their little role in salvaging the world from population explosion. So I too have my part to play in this life drama.
The question is how important your casting is. Is it befitting your innate potential and prospective? Has anyone acknowledged your capacity and capability, however diminutive it may be? No, the universe is not roomy enough to contain all such negligible talent. And there appears the dream I wish I could be like …..E.g. If I happen to listen to a heart-stealing music, I wish I could be like the musician. If I come about a mind-blowing dance, I wish I could be like the dancer. If I happen to read a book(blog- post also) with commendable content, I wish I could be like the writer. If I get into acquaintance with a person able for laudable oration, I wish I could be like the orator. A skilled mason, an expert cook, a smart anchor, an efficient doctor, a resourceful teacher, a patient person and the like enthuse me a lot. I wish on no account I could be a politician because I have never been in association with politics and politicians. I find no politician with desirable character and calibre for the present. All make-belief stories they cook for the greed to be fulfilled. Neither they love the country nor do they serve it.
If we dip our hand in the Holy Scriptures, we can pick so many mythological personalities from them that adorn our minds and we then wish we could be like them. Bhishmacharya, Droupadi, Kunti, Vidura and so many others. will arouse a spirit in us, because they are the embodiments or epitomes of powerful specialities. But all cannot be unique because the word uniqueness will vanish, if all are special. So let it go like this with all the varieties of human nature. Variety is the essence of nature.
Variety and diversity
pour water to the life for
people to live a life
full of life to shun
all dryness from the life.
(All these are sheer imagination, far away from reality.)
