Questions We Don’t Ask For Right Reasons! June 25, 2013

Posted by Shahir in As You Thinketh, Life.


Before Pele, what was the jersey number of great players and why Number 10 became synonymous to fame and genius in sports? Is number 10 a perception, or an indispensable belief, or is it a value tag associating with the greats in these sports? What else are we carrying along simply because it use to be so in the past?

Who would the generations fifty years from now remember most – Hitler or George Bush? Who’s taking the count of the far reaching effects of the massacres they both employed – the former in trenches and the latter through systematic experimentation of sophisticated weaponry from the labs?

Would Newton be famous than Steve Jobs for the next generation in spite of their fame from rise or fall of Apple? One shot to fame from observing the principles of why the apple is falling down, the other became famous from the value of Apple’s stocks rising high!

With the toppling of the tyrants – Hosni Mobarak, Col. Gaddafi, Saddam Hussain – who once seemed eternally powerful, would the powerful today become powerless one day – incomprehensible though it might seem today? What series of events would change the equation that will swing it the other way?

The world relieved (except Margaret Thatcher) from having Nelson Mandela to replace Mahatma Gandhi in the ideologies of fighting for freedom and equality. Will there be any other of these stature for the next generation to meet and learn from, when even President Obama has succumbed to the pressure of politics sacrificing the ideologies he once stood for and once spoke eloquently?

While the question of Jersey Number 10 may be irrelevant, will we begin to see answers for the many other questions that we are reluctant to ask?
