THE VERY MUCH NEEDED 'INTROSPECTION!'


Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
A young man fresh out of the College full of energy received his Appointment Order for a job he applied for and reported at the place on the D-day at the stated hour.. 

On his acceptance of the appointment as per the Hierarchal Reporting Structure of the Organization, he came under the care of a few Senior Disciplinarians who initially asked him to sign up many papers saying that therein he agreed to the strict Rules and Regulations of the Organization in vogue..

Further to the same, he was briefed exhaustively on the strict discipline required at Work, Code of Conduct and Procedures in Work Area like being obedient to the Superiors, not wasting time in unnecessary movements, not talking aloud or representing in Groups, not disturbing others at work, not entering the Classified Areas without permission, using judiciously precious entities like papers, writing materials and other stationary items, saving on Computer printouts, power and water etc, etc, etc.. 

Puzzled with the too many constraints and limitations imposed on him at a single stroke, the young man straight away asked.. 

“If restrained thus from all directions, what  Great Work will I really do here that would be useful to the Organization?”

That's how forever reacts a youngster.. A personality, full of energy and openness everywhere ever ready to bring out something NEW into the world!

Very appropriate to say that this energy and openness of young men and women should be streamlined and rightly utilized for the betterment at the place of work, betterment of the own family and betterment of the society at large.. And this energy and thrust should neither be allowed go waste wherein the precious output is lost once for all nor allowed to go freely in an uncontrolled direction causing definite damage and bringing untold misery around..

Such young personalities are invariably kept under the fold and care of the experienced/elderly in the line up and are controlled and monitored with certain Authority but unfortunately here, the controlling many times goes beyond what is really required.. And exactly to say, here only the young forever want their freedom as that enables them rightly express in the way they want..

Thus the experienced / elderly in direct contact with the young should see that these young men and women are never kept under their grip with selfish motives which can happen often but allowed to explore and bring out the ‘NEWNESS’ to the world..

That ‘NEWNESS’ alone has the right place in the world which does its own good of finding out the cause of suffering at large and eliminating or reducing the same.. And such an energy is with the youth and only with the youth and with none else in this world!

Thus, let there be a true awakening in the minds of the experienced / elderly personalities of the society that this precious energy of the youth forever is given out to the world freely and freely only but never given under the chains of over dose of Discipline and imposition of too many Customs, Rituals and Practices and too much of Morality!

And that day is sure the ‘Day of Liberation’ for all!

  1. Exactly, excess of anything is bad; so is discipline. Neither excess nor limited but right amount of discipline - middle path, as espoused by Buddha, is the way to liberation.

  5. Point well made sir. When the energy of young people is channelized it does produce great results. However there has to be a differentiation between unnecessary restriction and proper streamlining of their energy.
