The Suitable Mate ( have deviated initially)

For a long time this Change blog has been throwing the Social topic to the backburner!
After reading Sanjay's entry and his reference enteries so put as (1,2), and with the ongoing flux in my life, it seems my thoughts will spill on this blog too.

Supressing my desires to start from Desmond Morris' View of The Naked Ape Trioligy and likes I will come straight to Drastic changes which are very visible all around. Not to leave the fact how Indian Socio-View is bursting at its seams and coming out.
No its not just about DPS RKpuram delhi cock sucking MMS( or the zillions of its equivalents available on demand), or mildly outrageous T-shirts(Must see link) being printed( ya i read about in a BT's article last fortnight, the article showing a bikini and George Bush, with pointers saying Good Bush Bad Bush)...
Its a Big Change at very basic levels which is happening (has already gone a long way).

The Change in the basic thought patterns.
The Change in the percetion of everything.

Religion ( ya, talk about sikhs without turbans, or short-cuts rituals... havent you heard those mantra CD's that are to be enchnated during (m)any religius ceremony?)

Family Structure ( not just joint-nuclear family debate, but the basic Powershift( Alvin Toffler) between Matriach / Patriach familiy and now the Ethics fron fron the Nanny ..leading to nanniarch? structure of the family)

The avaialbility of knowledge much earlier and much faster has drastically CHANGED so much, that at times it is difficult to comprehend.

The Suitable Mate and the search for him/her in this fast evolving socio-structure (blitzkrieg) is a different Ball Game.

My views roll back and forth between Love vs Arranged ( at least now i am thinking about it, as against a year back, when I had no faith in the institution itself)... Dont know why they tend to tilt some times towards arranged.

May take

Love

- you know him/her ( but how much can you really know the other person and in how much time, when you and him/her are also constantly changing so much each day)

- LOVE ( well, very tricky to comment on this...I have not been able to define/ comprehend)

- Understand from beforehand very well, so better compatibility ( yeah? how many friends, relatives( Parent?) have to much later had highly argumentative difference of opinion... if none... then WOW)

- ( blanked out) help me here please!

Arranged

- Families know each other ( So what?, not the intended bride / groom. How much are the in sync with their families, is a question is the first place)

- Same / similar background, in terms of social ( what ? ) / financial ( ya have you seen how that changes witout notice) stature!)

Ok I have not even initiated other topics of

- Sex / Sexual orientation / experianed un experianed and its varied perception among the sexes and the ages

- Cooking ( Cooking??? ) with no time/ eat out and MTR ??

I am looking at views of everyone here!

Coz my belief is that "the Human Animal" has morphed so much socially and re-structed into verry different sets of social structure.

Living lives in their own Big/ small Niches / compartmentalised ( yeah in apartments), least bothered about their neighbours / parents (??) / and likes.
With so much change in the social structures, the definations and fuctions of SOCIAL institutions need to ( well they are automatically) modified!!

What say???

FATE

NOUN
The ultimate agency that predetermines the course of events (often personified as a woman)

An event (or a course of events) that will inevitably happen in the future

Your overall circumstances or condition in life (including everything that happens to you)

VERB
Decree or designate beforehand

----------------------------------------------------------------
Yes I know its perpetual chicken and egg!
You make your fate Vs. It’s all predestined

But question to you all...
Can you?
Can you completely Change your future?

Complete!!
You decide one day... what the hell, I want to do that... any bizarre desire...
Leave everything... travel far and wide experience the un-experienced.
Break the monotony of LIFE... of Society...

CAN YOU?
Current question troubling me.... CAN I??

Religion...

I know it is a very controversial!

re-le(d)ge-ion

{
Re=Again

Ledge= A projecting ridge on a mountain or submerged under water/ Some thing Visible!

Ion= A particle that is electrically charged (positive or negative); an atom or molecule or group that has lost or gained one or more electrons/ Something NOT visible

}

NO, I am not a Athiest, I am A firm believer of MY RELIGION..( ...dont ask me what)

My thoughts were triggered in a party when some mentioned something about religion and My though thread went in a tangent:

If you take up IDEALISM approach to social structure, Implying our belief systems are goverened by what we see and hear and are told.

My belief about what is religion:
Some ONE ( gOD?..no human ) intiated pseudo-facts about GOD(like)s!

Who had Abilities out of the nornal human scope!

in all domains.. physical, emotional, meta-anything!

All these were made / told / re-told for various purposes.

- to explain the then un-explianed

- to create abstract nouns.. Fath.. and allied.

.. the list can on on...

But the main FOCUS of what i believe relision wanted to address, got lost..
the main focus being to

- CONTAIN HUMAN BEINGS MIND( from flowing in to tengents which were then not considered correct)

- TO CONTAIN FROM HARMING OTHERS

- WRONG DOINGS ( SO DEFINED)
.. and list goes on..

All these got lost..
got lost coz

THEY( here they is GOD(LIKE) beings or their harbingers)

all forgot
- that THEY too were humans!!
- THAT power currupts!

Many tried..

every try got a different name/ a different religion..

Minute flways of one caused futher complications due to potential and later evident CONFLICTS

and LO!!
here we are a huge huge bunch.. Just like the MONKEY story I told earlier!!

so what is religion to you?? tell me..
