" The Story"


“Life is a race, agar tez nahi doudo ge, toh koi tumhe kuchal k aage nikal jaega”
It seems to be just a dialogue from a super hit film…but it is the reality of the so called “modern era” in which we live… we live in a country where a woman who is worshiped as goddess Laxmi is beaten till death, where pizza deliveries are faster than ambulances, where the fight against corruption is considered as a publicity stunt, where an innocent guy is imprison for a year in acquisition of stealing 200 Rs/- and a minister who is involved in a scam of billions is set free, where you get car loans @ 8% and education loan @12%,where a sports personality get paid even more than soldiers fighting on the borders risking their lives. We live in a world of irony, still proud because we have adopted the “chalta hai” attitude. So in a country where we have worriment in every step the endangered English literature seems to be just another name on our “problem list”.

But it’s not a small deal because it’s about the intense feeling that a writer has for his work and it’s about the state of a reader who wants his spent penny to be worth. When a writer’s work goes undervalued he experiences the same feeling of getting hurt as a mother feels when her child weeps in pain. When a literature loving person observes that how beautiful emotions of love are subjected to vulgarities, just because of the way they are presented, the feeling of disgust take over. When a worshiper of literature comes across the use of slang and informal language he finds the true essence of the classic English literature absent. With every mark of error that a publishing house serves; both the readers and the author are embarrassed.

So who is responsible for this chaos?

Is it the author? - Definitely not, because the author wants his work to be the best. So is it the publisher?  I guess no because the publishing houses have their reputation at stake. Then who? The answer lays in the system the gap between the one who owns the thought and the one who sells it. If the bridge between the terminals gets stronger we will relish what we get to a great extent.

So now who is winner in the race…?

I seriously have no clue to this puzzle, but yes I know that the loser is simply a person like me who worships literature as her most prized possession. Who wants to write, who wants to get lost into some classic tales, who wants to see her name on the cover page of a best seller, who wants the answer to the problem of her lives through books she reads, who wants to express her feelings being fearless from being weighed by currency. I am just an ordinary girl who is trying to put light on her feelings which are curbed by the system.
“I” am just a voice for the millions who dream to be one among the published names.
It will take some time and all of us have to play our roles honestly then, just a little effort and we will have one name less in our so called “problem list”.

So let’s hope for a better tomorrow.

System will be certainly blamed for misguiding us!

But you say we who believe our pen is our mighty weapon end up dreaming to see our names labelled with A BEST-SELLER mag/daily. But don't you think that way again we are thinking back to the 'SYSTEM'? Why will we want to sell and marketing us, but personal blogs or free hand-prints? Our aim is to raise our voice, to reach to the correct place, not to be sold in the flying market!

Lets not fall into the same system, but a clean and pure thought-process!

But surely the read was worthy. The points were strong and the thoughts were bold. Loved it.

Jayeeta Ghosh

Himani goyal mam we are trying our every possible bit to bring out the change. we all at Adroits are trying to do our duty rest we have left upto destiny. But without the guidance of learned people like you we cannot even dream of succeeding.
thanks a lot mam for your precious comment.

The Adroits... said...

Jayeeta Ghosh...thanks a ton. I mean really i am highly inspired by the thought and the appreciation.

But we don't feel that we should discard or run away from the system of selling and purchasing just because it has got dirty in few years rather we believe that we need to rectify it, we need to clean it. The process is on. The fight has begun. we agree that the basic agenda is to reach the mass but still we want to have a rigid system.

Thanks a lot for your opinion. It is truly treasured.

You have that element girl, that makes readers interested in your words. System sure is responsible, but who constitutes the system? Our readers, and us, right? So to promote and respect quality literature, it is up to us to work in that direction.

Thank you so much shweta mam..:)
and yes mam you are cent percent correct saying that the system is made up of us, that is why we need do our duty honestly in order to come out from this catch 22..
thanks again mam..
