Note: This article doesn’t need a very high level of intelligence.
1. I took a mini bath with water using the Lalbahadur nearby. Lalbahadur is the code word for a handpump (reference: Peepli Live–a Bollywood movie in Hindi language released about a decade ago.)
2. I had a walk in the scorching heat of Jyeshtha this noon. A walk after a tea. An elaichi tea worth ten rupees.
3. As predictable as it gets: being the election season: there weren’t many options for cafes. It doesn’t take The Truman Show level of expenses to get my due of opinion in the feedback machinery.
4. As I stayed in the cafe: I kept hearing the conversation between two other visitors who were already present. They appeared to be elders in age and yet they were interested in the Moosewala assassination, which really surprised me. I just googled to ensure if assasination was preferable over murder here.
5. It immediately struck me: they were interested in the details of killing. One of them highlighted the statement in media reports that if assassinated person was carrying enough cartridges he would have survived.
5.1: “Security wasn’t as tight as it should have been,” didn’t seem to come to the minds of these visitors.
5.2: Their discussion soon made it clear that they were thinking about it from the viewpoint of first persons. What would they have done if it had happened to them? They have been in conflicts and reptilian brain is hyperactive in them.
5.3: I knew nothing about Moosewala when the event was reported. Prior to it: Siddhu we all knew was Navjot Singh, cricketer-turned-politician who was sentenced for an year inside prison. I had examined his stars. I examined stars of Moosewala as well.
5.4: With Jaimini Atmakaraka in Pisces : I realised that he was meritorious and attained final liberation as per Parashara.
5.5: Mars was still immature. He was a pop star and Mars matures by the age of twenty eight.
5.6: Coming back to visitors in cafe: there are usually two types of people: men of action and men of thought. They belonged to former.
5.7: Such people act first and think later.
5.8: Other arguments about this event I heard were in line with “cause of his death was promoting gun culture in youth.”
5.9: The question is: would he be celebrated like Che Guevara on t-shirts of Punjabi youth in generations to come? That’s what matters as far as legacy is concerned. Why did he die so young?
6. There’s another group which advocates predestination especially in the matters of birth, marriages, death etc. They say: the age of a person is fixed before birth because of merits. It becomes a simple escape for people unwilling to work for their longevity. Live however you want because death is certain when the day arrives. Or the night.
