Turning Point…

10 Dec

It was a cold morning and Ram got up and had his breakfast as usual. He was getting prepared to perform, what to him, was one of the major turning point of his entire life. Being the eldest son in the family, he had to set an example and live an exemplary life. Though one could have too many credibilities to their regard, every new thing that needs to be accomplished always portrays a new form of challenge.

Interviews, Exams and Races are all about timing. You have very little time and you have to prove to the world that you are the best. You could have put in hours and hours of hard work into learning, but it finally comes to those few minutes which could turn your life upside down. It is the nature of life. Ram was not an exclusion. If he doesnt perform, he is going to be thrown out and be considered among a big group of losers. On occasions when there is just one winner, it is a paradox that everybody else is marked as a loser.

Though Ram had just shared a few smiles, he knew that she was the one. He would do anything to gain her love. To him, it was about winning someone’s heart. It is not as same as everything else that he had put efforts into. On top of his already nebulous mind, worries about his parents’ acceptance started creeping. Acceptance forms a major role in a societal network. Especially, parent’s acceptance for a marriage is not something that can be considered lightly.

Ram was more nervous than ever. The worst part of selecting only one person in a given challenge is that the remaining people dont even run a chance once the selection is made, however capable they might be. Though, it is good in a way because they could term themselves as “winners” since they didnt really compete. A better consolation than being considered as a loser. Today, Ram had to win and that would mean that everyone else before him had to lose. It was his turn… time passes by….Yes, he DID it… He broke the bow so easily that Sita came running by to offer the garland…Ram’s life changed…And Ramayana took a new turn…:)

    Interesting. Now the question is whether Sita actually won anything. (considering the ordeal she went through 🙂 )

    Actually, thinking about it…you hit upon an interesting point,brainwaves.Sita might have won Ram’s love , but I think she was miserable for most part of her life. Maybe, it comes with the title, like a first lady. Ram was too busy creating an epic to spend time with family.:-)

    As Vairamuthu puts it, “Kannagi Silai Dhan Ingundu, Seethaiku siali dhan ingedhu?” .Sita never had an identity of her own. Always known as Ram’s wife. Hmmm…not to my liking..

    If I think about it, I dont really know if Sita did anything out of the ordinary. No doubt that she remained a very faithful wife. But, other than that, I dont see what else did she really do that is markedly different and has not beeen given credit for… May be, its just me…
