Be Prepared- Not a song but a Political ambition

The dark side depiction of not only Scar but humans too in the song Be prepared from the movie Lion King

I am sure most of us have watched Lion King movie and loved it. It was an awesome movie to watch and feel the emotions like you were Simba for real. It had great songs like the Circle of Life, Hakuna-Matata and Be Prepared.

The song “Be Prepared” was one of the great villainous song. It described each and every evil motives of not only Scar and Hyenas in the movie but also the motives humans have when they are jealous, arrogant and want to harm someone. Hyenas being the group of population cleverly manipulated by their masters for political benefits. This song from the lion king movie depicts most of the political scenarios around the world. Especially during the medivial times and the date range prior to that.Few of the lines are as follows which the Lion Scar and the other hyenas sang:

Be prepared for the murkiest scam
Meticulous planning
Tenacity spanning
Decades of denial
Is simply why I’ll
Be king undisputed
Respected, saluted
And seen for the wonder I am
Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!
Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!

When I was a kid the first time I saw lion king was Hindi dubbed. And the only song catchy to me was Hakuna- Matata. But Lion King is such an epic movie that you afford to see everytime it is being telecasted. The animated version had a song named “Be prepared”. It was catchy to me. And after that I realized that the song was not for children, it was for the grown ups. As the villian fully depicts a political rivalry for his own brother. Where he wants to kill his own brother and nephew for control over the jungle.

That sounds similar to many of the political scenarios we have had around the world.

It is being said that Kim Jong Un , the North Korean dictator killed his own uncle and step brother. According to historians Ashoka and Khilji eliminated every one from their blood line who could be a threat to their Kingship. European history was the same too. Almost every dynasty politics had a dark side. The Kauravas wanted to kill their cousins for throne in Mahabharata.

Let’s go to a lower hierarchy of society standards. I mean the higher middle class, middle class and the lower middle class. I am sure all of us have heard multiple news about brother killing brother over a property dispute. Son killing father for some money or property.

Attempts to eliminate a deserving was always there in the past due to greed and jealousy.

“A song of greed, jealousy and the lust for power”

Computer Teacher

As a child most of us have been taught to respect our teachers. And all of us should do it too. But few teachers I have seen for real who were really mean, exploited children for their personal benefits like money and few more things.

Teaching is no doubt a respectable profession but that does not mean that the people who are involved will be good as a human being.

I guess when people grow up and start doing jobs most of the them remember at least some of their teachers either in a good aspect or bad aspect.

It was the month of April, I was late by 10 days to join school as I just came from my native. I was promoted to the second standard from first. I was in a school in Itangar, Arunachal Pradesh, India.

There was a surprise test that day. That too of the computer. Computer was almost new to Indian schools then. I missed my classes for almost a week. So, I didn’t have much idea about the usage.

So the test was really simple. It was just to type your name in the keyboard so it could be displayed on monitor. A really simple one. I was confident that I would do it easily.

Students passed by and then came my turn. I had difficulty searching the first alphabet of my name. Why??? It was a fu*Β£#@g ‘QWERTY’ board. I didn’t knew the concept of the alignment of a keyboard that it was randomly arranged at a specific manner. And I took more seconds to find the alphabet ‘S’. As I thought the sequence would be like A,B,C,D…..and so on.

All of a sudden my teacher got angry. He was in his mid 20s I guess. Tall with mustache. I do not remember his name though. May be it started from an ‘A’ or whatever.

He took a thin stick made up of iron. And all of a sudden he started hitting me at my Calf muscles. He hit me for 3-4 minutes I guess. It was painful but I didn’t cried one single drop. May be I was a freedom fighter in my previous lifeπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.I was about to but I didn’t. I always had a lot of self control and patience back then.

When I went back home I saw 3-4 thin lines at my Calf area. It was kind of visible. Exactly I don’t remember maybe it was my sister or my aunt “Mita pishi” who asked what happened to your legs and I exactly said it happened because of the room heater. Which had the covering with almost exact distance of the lines at my Calf area. It was the first lie……of my life. May be I was ashamed of my failure then. As I wasn’t able to perform such a simple test.After a long time I told them. They said I said have said about that.

Sometimes I think I should have complained about that. At least he would have been suspended from the school. Some teachers should have consience that students are not puppets at whom they would take out their mental frustrations. By badly hitting them. It’s not like I have never got any beating during my childhood but this was different. Teachers are the people who inspire children to become successful by their thoughts and teaching. And sometimes slight beating is ok.

Some memories gets imprinted on your mind just like the beating marks .

It would have been a great lesson if instead of hitting me “he would have taught me it’s fine and said I will teach you. Hardly it would have taken 2 minutes of his precious time”.

Child inside me…..

They destroyed everything!! They destroyed millions of planets in thousands of galaxies. Last it was “Hoag’s Object”. Then they came for us in “Milkyway”. One by one each of the planets were destroyed in each and every Solar system present in our galaxy. All of us supported life before but now all our inhabitants were killed because we sheltered them. Now it’s your turn says “Jupiter” to “Earth”.

“You need to get rid of Humans” else the end you will suffer the same destiny as us” says Mars to her. Our internal systems were changed when they planned to leave us but yours is the same.

“We need to take help of the Galaxy Engineers who created us and gave us powers. Now we are powerless only if we could communicate with them it might help us all not only ‘Earth’. The Humans adjusted my power so that only they could sustain on Earth.” Says Sun to all other planets.

“We don’t know where they are and how shall we communicate with the Galaxy Engineers. The communication system installed at our galaxy was destroyed millions of years ago ” says Saturn.

“Also the relay system installed inside us were inactivated by the Humans. Only the Galaxy Engineers could help us” – says Pluto. “Humans took all my resources and smuggled it everywhere around the universe and reduced my size to half” Pluto adds to the discussion.

“What shall I do brothers and sisters. We all were born together and lived happily before the invasion. Now I will also have the same fate like my little brother Pluto. We all are dying for them for no reason. They are extracting everything from me which were dead long back. Things they say like coals , diamond. Recently they tried to enter my core. And if they are able to do it, I will be over and destroyed forever and some they will go for some other planets making ours Solar system life less.” says Earth.

“When we were first made, the Galaxy Engineers told us that each of us planets will support different kind of species and life forms. I had the ‘Primas’ as intelligent as humans but they couldn’t sustain the attack. Only Earth help herself and us now till we are able to connect Galaxy Engineers.” Says Jupiter.

Venus further adds “I have a plan that might save us and her(Earth). But the present life will be destroyed.”

Curiosity of other planets increases as Venus starts to tell his Plans to others. ” You have a copy of yourself inside your core. Now you know what you have to do. But that would lead to the death of others already present”.

After thinking sometime the Earth says “I will do it!! We have suffured enough for others. Now it’s time for them”.

Earth slowly started to grow from the core again to make herself be born again. Same as the time when she was a newly born. The little earth start to expand herself, which led to the breaking of the Crust. Volcanoes blasted and magma spread like Rivers. Water turned hot and started to boil then turned into steam. Humans and other innocent creatures were observing a painful death and suffering. The Humans had no chance to counter the sudden action of the Earth. Lastly there was a huge blast which moved the older Crust, mantle and core as debris in space. At the end it was a new Earth with the same soul and the same memories. After sometime the Galaxy Engineers reached the Solar system and they told that they saw an unusual thing happening in the solar system.

“Since the Earth has already updated herself and saved herself we don’t have much work on her but she still needs an atmosphere. And we are going to reset you all again as before. So that this time all the planets will be able to sustain life again and communicate with us. And also the sun can adjust his powers for each and every planets at the system again.” says one of the Galaxy Engineer.

“As time goes by life flourishes again in all the planets of the Solar system.”

3 Monkeys…..πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™Š!!

Hi!! My name is “Gamma”. We are three brothers named “Alpha”, “Beta” and “Gamma”. We were free willed and happy during our childhood days in Africa.

It is often said that happiness does not last long. Our parents died , basically killed by the militants in Mozambique.

We had to run away to save our lives. Finally we joined a refugee camp in nearby area which had protection from the millitans. It was surrounded by Army. They gave us food to eat and there were many like us who hadn’t eaten. We made friends with them with good bonding. We shared our old memories all night about escaping the horrible situation.

One fine day we were adopted by a rich man from Kenya whose wife recently died out of illness. He seemed like a nice man.

We were officially his Sons and he became our father without any blood relation. We were always told that blood relation is the strongest relation. But the friends we made who were like our brothers and would stand up for us any given day. The father who adopted us without worrying that we had no genetic relation with him.

Our life in Kenya was very peaceful. He took care good care of us with good education,food , clothing and a house to live.

When we were at out teenage our father would teach each of us a life lesson which he said he learnt from a great man abroad.

For “Alpha” it was “Do not see anything bad!!”.

For “Beta” it was “Do not listen anything bad!!”

And finally for me “It was don’t say anything bad!!”. We obeyed all his teachings without questioning him as he was the very same person who saved us and gave us everything a child would desire and also lead us to a successful future.

Few years passed by and it was time for us to apply his teachings in real life. One day I saw a person beaten by a mob for some reason. As I was thought don’t say anything wrong I wasn’t able to identify which side should be taken by me. I mean the person who was beaten badly could have committed some crime or the people hitting him badly were the wrong ones?? So I kept quiet and left that place without taking any side.

The very same day “Alpha” went to buy some groceries. He sees a person trafficking young girls and boys for slavery. It’s a bad thing right?? Alpha walks away pretending he did not saw anything.

Lastly it was Beta’s turn. A shopkeeper shouting at his domestic help for being five minutes late. Calling him obsence names and everything to break him down. So this too is a bad thing?? So Beta escapes from there as fast as possible.

That night there was an awkward silence between all of us. We shared all our thoughts that we did not stand up for the right just because of our fake ideals.

Next day we discussed with our father our observations. He said It was my duty to teach you all something valuable. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take your consciousness into consideration. Different situations require different actions. I am happy that you all have learnt the lesson by yourselves!!”

Food and Ethics- “Everyone has the right to live, die with dignity “

Veganism, vegetarianism and non vegetarians are in constant conflict with each other. People mocking each other at lunch table is common nowadays πŸ˜‰. Everyone is there for you to justify why their food habits are best. As I ate chicken almost frequently few of my vegetarian friends were constantly explaining to me why being non vegetarian is cruel to the animals although when I gave a thought about it they were true as being caged can be very sad for the animals. We don’t know what they are going through…..

I never ate Cow due to my religious beliefs but I did mistakenly eaten pork dumpling once by mistakenly and to be frank it was one the tastiest meat I had eaten. But when I came to know that it wasn’t chicken but pork….I was full of guilt and remorse for 2-3 days because of my religious beliefs and nothing else. Being from a Bengali,Hindu family fish and chicken was very common in my diet. I tried being vegetarian many times but failed miserably…..as it is not easy to quit any food which we are used to.So now I have just reduced the intake of non veg food and my parents left meat and fish long back when he was diagnosed with minor cancer.

I don’t know about other countries but the way pigs are slaughtered in some parts of India is very inhumane and cruel. Hit them bad and insert rod from mouth to anal cavity. I don’t think anyone would to die such a gruesome death.

I am not against any domisticated food habit. But we do need to re evaluate the method of killing Right r farm animals so that they feel the least amount of pain and people eating them have less guilt.

According to me animals should not be kept in captivity like in cages….open farms should be promoted….and at the end have a less painful death before being served at anyone’s plate.

Karma is a Bitch…

Few years back I was traveling with my flat mate for shopping …she was riding the scooty. It was a Sunday so the area was entirely empty. Suddenly we realized that two guys were following us and shouting and screaming in their local language.

My flat mate being a local understood that they were Eve teasing us and following us . So she increased the speed of the bike then these people also increased their speed and said something to us and took right turn.

The moment they turned their bike…..both the goons fell from their bike and had a severe accident. They deserved it 😁. What we sow is what we reap.

At that day my concept of karma got more stronger. No matter what happens God will help was and whoever did wrong to an innocent soul shall get the punishment.

This is one of the incidents which made me a strong believer in Karma.
