The story of the unknown

Leave a comment

There was  a man. He was unknown. He knew no one. Nobody knew him.

He lived. And lived on. Eternity it seemed. It probably was.

Nobody got him. He understood no one. It was probably why he was unknown.

His actions were in no way illegal or even immoral. But every one else seemed quite the immoral. Morality and popularity had a inverse correlation. The first step to popularity is to be liked. Our man was not easily liked too.

Or maybe there is no fairness. It is all pre-decided. Control is for ones who were on the right side of ‘like’.

One day he died alone. The world remained the same.
Unknown to him and likewise

Every nation has heroes. Heroes who reflect where the nation will head to. Heroes hit that right nerve which creates the same emotion across societies. When a greater part of society does not have heroes, it means that the people do not have a benchmark, a height unattainable, a pass time to forget the drudgery of that everyday life and much much more.

What Ayrton Senna did in Brazil, what Lance Armstrong did in America etc are just some examples to create that effect.

Where are our heroes?

Hope the nation finds its set of heroes. They will drive the nation.

Sachin is one. But again, he is one. We need a Sachin or Dravid in every sport. In every other sport. In every sector. That is when I will start believing that a country like India can be a force.
