Jo bhi ho, kal phir aayega.
I saw a tree opposite Churchgate station and this was unusual as I was daily passing through that street. My visual memory was rendered to see the tree that was rich with greenness. But that day it was chopped for no good reason, chopping was not required as anyways it was not obstructing any view or lane. It was looking Bald and Naked.
Every time I used to see those green trees uprooted, suddenly lying on the ground in to pieces, I used to feel sorry as they were victims of a selfish agenda. The shade to that part of the ground would now not be available, just like an innocent guy who is uprooted with the law and the shade of his is not available to the family, who has grown that tree up to give fruits and that his fruits are looted by someone who does not want to be a part of his family. Further they would be thoroughly utilized after being uprooted by someone else.
But then I stared for awhile and I found that there are some leaves already growing. For obvious reason and that was the tree is not uprooted though looted; and it is recovering. This situation relaxed the stressed lines on my face. I could feel the inner voice smiling and telling me that I too would be one day witnessing a major loot again, this time legally by my estranged partner as a settlement. But all said and done, she can’t uproot me and I would definitely bounce back after the end of the emotionally, financially, morally, lost episode that would also bring in further defamation.
“I sat in the train removed my (b)log book and I wrote notes to myself, some reminded me of Kalpasutra (Holy book of Jains)
1. The tree inspite of loosing fruits never gives up on giving fruits and its sweetness.
2. The tree once again grows its shade and spreads coolness. Similarly in life one should be like that.
3. Never say die till uprooted and if uprooted then sow the new seeds to the ground before you perish (lead by example)
4. If your roots are deeply grown in the ground then you will continue reaping fruits no matter what.
So when calamity strikes do not give up on your principles, stay rooted to them. If you give up on them you will be uprooted and you lose your ground and path. Once uprooted tree would stop growing and giving fruits. It may be used or decayed so would you. So never lose ground be what you are, time will pass by calamities would go, fruits would come again.
1 .Tree is an example of optimism, it never gives up.
2. It is an example of extending selfless favours (Par Upkar).
3. It gives fruits and but never for self. (a tough point)
I remember my Senior Collegue (a perfect case 3 sita) used to quote her mom everytime I was down that “A tree that bears fruits is flexible and bows down (as compared to barren tree) and the one who bows down is of the highest of stature.” Such examples of women (and even men) were seen in most of the cases in the past like our parents. And I used laugh in distress (my habit to laugh it out on self) and ask her “what about coconut tree?” and her agenda of making me smile used to be fulfilled.
Anyway coming back to the tree that inspired me to write this article. This tree was still rooted and hence shot the sprouts of new green branches and thus I too corrected my low mood stating I too am looted but still rooted. Since looted morally, financially rather ubiquitously (and still awaiting legal loot on me) but rooted principally. I still maintain that would give her whatever she wants (to the best of my capacity) with the best wishes of me and my family. That if she was never content with us, but should be at least content now.
May be, I am among the chosen ones to fight for the 498a (pre post) victims this side and I would selflessly do that, like a tree facing all the calamities but giving my family a cover against Rain, Heat or any calamities (and even my enemies, strange is it?) thus fulfilling my parents wish.
A false 498a or its threat is like chopping of the branch on which the accuser is sitting who then complains of a fall. And after the separation and before divorce the time span is lost, maybe because too many options are open that breeds greed for the cunning bride that confuses her in whether to claim the whole tree or how much and what? Thus causing dispute, indecision and loss of time. And the guy and his family lives in the fear of 498a misuse or fights against the state for falsely implicated 498a.
"But, Thank you god, for Conversing with me through this example of tree. I am sure you would keep on communicating with me and I would be lucky enough to spot you. Please be there to guide me always.”
