Hundreds of years ago, a futurist and philosopher called Nostradamus had predicted, “Humans are having a primal instincts of survival and dominance which make them one amongst the animals who can harm others to continue the tyranny.” Humans did all as the words had described or better say, words described the exact nature of humans. Since the begining of socialised living of humans thousand years ago, this tradition of being a ruler has been rolled down to present day without any change to it. In older days, tribes fought tribes, nations fought nations in the name of kings. Although there was a good reason of freedom and rights, another aspect of it always wore a glimpse of power to rule. Not all the people were bad but some of them who came forward by gaining control of remaining others definitely mirrored the evil within their minds. Such powerful rulers who craved for more power crushed the weak ones under their merciless dominance. Throughout the history, these wars for being superior amongst other have been distinguished part of human race. From Alexander to Auranzeb, from Huns to Hitler and America to Russia. For every one of them, the power meant everything.
The words of that old wise man were reciprocated and recalled loudly after the world wars. The British empire over India, Cruelty unleashed by Nazis upon Jews had underlined the crave of dominance that could go to any height and depth to maintain their unresolvable thirst of high seat. After the 50’s although the war by tanks and vessels seemed to calm down in most of the world, the new era of the fighting for the power has risen. Cold war amongst two nation broke out, war between once united country for the acquiring the land sparked many wars but later the improvising sanity and globalization helped to stiffle these open fights. But as said before about the unresolvable thirst, it was growing and boiling to spread it’s anarchy over the world once again. Secured borders put constraints on it but it was just for a while. When people thought that there is going to be peace afterwards, just then the worm of this dominance lying inside the humans came out of its temporary dormant state and headed to squirm within the boundaries, within the country. The only thing which diversified the united country, (alright let me be specific) our country India was religion and thus these infectious minds chose it to create chaos within it. Such handful of maniacs came out of holes and started to spit about about religions. They modified history and altered the philosophy just to boost up their campaign to decentralize the creed. The people who were under the influence began to heat up the air for another religion. The hatred grew larger and just by the law of action to reaction, the religious fight club formed the sections far sooner. People who once stood side by side for country to exhibit the power of unity now began to fight with each other so as to behold the earned empire. Religion became the shield to cover up the agendas of their leaders. That lunacy coming out of influential minds polluted the minds of peoples who believed and followed them. The sight became hazy and then it began. Brother began slaughtering brother, once who stood side by side to be powerful and free began to stiffle the breaths of each other. Just like the bamboo plants, you chop down it once and soon it sprouts out of the roots again. Similarly the infection of minds began to spread all over. The mindset about rivalry has proliferated so much that it swept and pushed the goodness in a side corner. If one pot of boiling soup went cool, these lunatics fired it up by adding a new spice and new fuel because it was the way for their dream dish to cook perfectly.
The same had happened since the ages and has just happened few days ago, originated in Koregaon Bhima. The spark of war between two groups was fired up by someone from this type of dominators. They picked a sensitive string which joined two religious group in harmony and then simply snatched it until it broke. That’s it, sooner the fight between those groups began and spread all over the country. No one knew exactly what happened, why happened but they still fought with each other. Why..? Just to keep the chest puffed with the hollow pride that has been incinerated in their minds. No one was right and no one was innocent out of them. They are guilty of fighting up against the own peoples without knowing why they are doing all that. Shivaji Maharaj had built the foundation of modern Maharashtra. He struggled his life so that all people could live together in peace and harmony. He never ever put limits to society under the name of cast and creed. And now here we are, letting his Maharashtra fall apart in the religious rivalries and fights. The people who invoke us to fight for religion are actually having no concerns with religion. They just use it as a drug to booze our mind and we get high on that.
This has to stop. The fight of India and Pakistan, Hindu and Muslim, so called upper class and lower class. There is no way we are going to be great if we are crawling and fighting in such degraded level. We have to come out of the grip of those so called leaders who push us in the field to fight for no reason except their crave for power, politics and influence. No religion has ever said to fight and slaughter for keeping itself at apex position. Religion were made to make humans live a life with morals and values, instead we are going nowhere in that direction.
This has stop or sooner we will put each other to an end while the devil will enjoy watching this play of chaos go as per his plan.
