The firming up of the change to take place has begun and I can safely submit that by early in the coming week we shall be in a position to guide you through it. It shall be nothing fancy or even drastically different, but just that access and a few additions which would be developed through the days to come, shall start to appear.
Every change possesses some hick ups in the earlier stages, but as time passes they resolve themselves, some with your help and understanding, some from ours. I do hope it is more the latter. I do feel somewhat confident to say that by the coming Monday or Tuesday an incorporation shall take place and we shall be on new ground.
The rains are coming down with some severity in most parts of the nation, though some areas remain dry and anxious, for the delay would cost them heavily. Crops would suffer, the storage of water, the dams built especially for the purpose of fault in delayed rains, all would assume a heavy proportion of damage. I would like to believe that this is an annual phenomena – the wait for the monsoon, its predictions, and finally its presence. Nature has its own say in the matter. Drought in regions where there has been no rainfall, floods in regions where it has. The dichotomy of life ! It is strange is it not that the existence of a state would depend on a certain weather condition ! How weather has become the maker and the destroyer in a world that has through its own development processes, largely found reason and alternatives to what nature propounds ! Nature shall forever be the more respected and potent force. We shall as mankind, delve deeper into the mechanics of how we must battle adverse conditions, but in the final end we have always succumbed to the force of unknown occurrence. Which is why belief increases into the unknown area, and no matter how advanced we may be in defining various modes and challenges of the existence of the universe, there shall still be something for which no answers, or no relevant answers will be found.
We spoke at length last night on the ‘God Particle’, the element that was responsible of our presence, of our make up, of God itself in some eyes, but I wonder if those that worked ceaselessly on the discovery of the Higgs Boson ever prayed for the success that they needed to arrive at a legible solution ! We are told that Higgs was an atheist. I would not be surprised. Most scientists working on such a complex project would all be. But were there really some who still did not fall into that bracket. Drawing a somewhat oblique parallel to this was a remark made by someone who’s identity I am unaware of, which, referring upon the subject of the Almighty or God or an unknown force had stated that ” even Hitler must have prayed for the success of the War he was involved in ” !
My time, a great amount of it, is spent with many of the fresh talent that invades our Film Industry. Invades because, every other day I am taken by pleasurable surprise on the efforts and uninhibited actions of those that des-per-ate to find a place in the sun ! I am moved whenever I see and bear a moment where the next or the present, comes on with a novel presentation. I applaud that and write to them, speak with them, send them flowers in acknowledgement of their brilliance. Their exuberance on recognition, is a moment that is so satisfying to me, as a member of the same fraternity. At times there is disbelief in their expressions and demeanor. At times a release of immense gratitude. I am surprised at times at this their attitude. It is I that should be overwhelmed. I am. They should lie back and enjoy it. I am sure that they do. They are meant to. Some profess the impetus that such ‘recognition’ gives them. Some are so liberal and ecstatic with their words of an acknowledgement. Some become silent, unable to express themselves …. but …. that is all wrong. It is I that should be undergoing these sentiments, and I do. I breathe and exude without hesitation or consciousness. I have admiration and awe in their work. I think all day about them. I wish in my quieter moments if I could have been 30 years younger and had opportunity to work with them. To be a part of the films and the creativity that they expound.
What an exciting time we live in today ! I speak of the Industry and the films and the talent that comes forth. These are the days that begin to change our environ. Change for the better, change for that finality that we in our time may have lacked. Change in making or endeavoring to make us change our minds and our thoughts. Change to give us an opportunity to separate the wheat from the chaff. Change for the betterment of creation, of the art of presentation, entertainment. Change does so much !
It shall also change our platform on Blog … change is continuous and must be endeavored !!
It shall ..
