CRAZY SOULS

Each of us make a logic of our own and try to create a tribe around  us and constantly seek chorus for whatever we do.  Whether that actually bears fruit or otherwise, but in the process of doing, so many crazy souls  create sounds of pollution that affect the liberty of others.

The other day, being holiday  I was little more enthusiastic to indulge more in my desired activity : reading and writing.  But the two mind-intensive activities were severely dampened with  continuous blaring sounds of bhajans from nearby school from dawn to dusk.  

My afternoon siesta was also gone. It looked that the group of people in the school stood against the colony and were silently creating enemies in the process of invoking Gods.   I tried hard to understand their logic for singing bhajans in such a high-pitch tone with microphones on.  The school is a stone's throw from my home, and you could imagine my plight !

I feared that such  behaviour in a communally sensitive place would definitely put them in deep trouble.

One need not be so pompous when it comes to bhakti or devotion.  The more you silently do, the greater would be it's impact.   Commenting on Bhakti, Swami Vivekananda in his lecture on Bhakti Yoga says that  one great advantage of Bhakti is that it is the easiest and the most natural way to reach the great divine end in view; it's great disadvantage is that in its lower forms it oftentimes degenerates into hideous fanaticism. 

What that group of people who made me sleepless for half-day definitely fall into this category. Whether God would respond to their prayers or not, let this should not create mess in the lives of neighbourhood.
