Bobby

A fictional story about Robert F. Kennedy’s assassination, during his electoral campaign. Presented quite well, and has the elements of hope and justice entwined into the story.

The last scenes shocking events have RFK’s famous speech – “On the Mindless Menace of Violence“. Truly a noble speech. We have much to learn from it.

I include a few quotes from this noble speech.

It is not the concern of any one race. The victims of the violence are black and white, rich and poor, young and old, famous and unknown. They are, most important of all, human beings whom other human beings loved and needed. No one – no matter where he lives or what he does – can be certain who will suffer from some senseless act of bloodshed. And yet it goes on and on and on in this country of ours.

When you teach a man to hate and fear his brother, when you teach that he is a lesser man because of his color or his beliefs or the policies he pursues, when you teach that those who differ from you threaten your freedom or your job or your family, then you also learn to confront others not as fellow citizens but as enemies, to be met not with cooperation but with conquest; to be subjugated and mastered.

Our lives on this planet are too short and the work to be done too great to let this spirit flourish any longer in our land. Of course we cannot vanquish it with a program, nor with a resolution.

But we can perhaps remember, if only for a time, that those who live with us are our brothers, that they share with us the same short moment of life; that they seek, as do we, nothing but the chance to live out their lives in purpose and in happiness, winning what satisfaction and fulfillment they can.

Powder

This is a film from 1995. I had seen it long ago, but it was one of those films that I never forgot about.

It’s all about energy, and the realization of what we all are. You can find the torrent here if you wish to see it yourself.

Even today, I feel it holds several facts that we often take for granted and / or are completely unaware of.

I came across a old book and I must say the words and verses have made me think much.

The book is called “The Prayer of the Frog” by Anthony de Mello.

I shall include several citations, now and later, for your reading pleasure

Theme : Love (page 218)

A man offered to pay a sum of money to his 12 year old daughter if she mowed the lawn. The girl went at the task with great zest and by the evening the whole lawn had been beautifully mowed – well, everything except a large uncut patch of grass in one corner.

When the man said he couldn’t pay the sum agreed upon because the whole lawn hadn’t been mowed, the girl said she was ready to fore go the money, but would not cut the grass in the patch.

Curious to find out why, he checked the uncut patch. There, right in the center of the patch, sat a large toad. The girl had been too tender-hearted to run over it with the lawn-mower

Where there is love, there is disorder.
Perfect order would make the world a graveyard.

Welcome all,

Chromosome LK, of which I suffer (and many others) is none other than my contemplations, trebulations, success’, failures and life in general in SRI LANKA documented on the web.

It’s how I see my surroundings, and how I feel about them. It’s about survival. Its about the aches and pains. Its about life as I know it.
