An unexamined life is not worth living–Socrates

I read this statement in some book recently, but it keep on haunting me day by day, asking me various questions. I am posting few of my questions in this blog.

Lets talk about ourselves first before examining anything… We Humanbeings are we going ahead are travelling back.

We started from the days we lay bare struggling for existence winning a day to day battle with nature. Then came the days we invented Wheel, discovered Fire and thereby tamed the nature to an extent . This is followed by us travelling around and domesticating the whole of earth.

As we discovered metals we found basic tools for hunting. Then formed groups and fighted among each other. When man thought he is getting hold of nature there came the Ice age, showing the mankind the hurdles involved. Few asteriods hit our planet redistributing everyone and everything on the earth randomly.

Again the former process continued and the human population survived and prospered.

The great period of intellectual thinking followed which paved the way for examining everything we did and happened. Man studied nature, postulated theories, created many inventions and led to industrialisation.

There came the importance of the value of exchange of goods. Countries i.e the random groups made by man himself fought among each other for power n wealth.

 Two world wars are fought and are we due of one more, if so we will be back to stone age again..Are we thinking…examining…. retrospecting ourselves?

Major amount of our energies are devoted to mere physical things and we are forgetting the REAL means of life.

‘An unexamined life is not worth living’ said Socartes. Are we worth living?

 I suppose we should take time to think, evaluate and examine ourselves. We should be ethically responsible for each and every deed of ours. We can’t live on a planet exploiting it, damaging its  resources, extincting other species.

Don’t we have a purpose? We the smartest species on the earth, have the ability to think are just living like anyother species.

I end it here…trying to examine myself…

I hail from a place where people breathe fresh air, drink clean water and all the other healthy stuff. happens. My mornings start with the sweet sounds made by the birds in the surronding woods. My afternoons are spent in the lavish shades of the trees playing cricket. Along with my friends I used to swim in the river every evening. I should say I’m singing my own version of “Summer of 69” remembering all those days in the past.

But, now in pursuit of lucrative career, I ‘m in a place where, I wake to the honking of the vehicles through my window. I had to bear this cacophony even on my way to work. Most of the day, I work listening the silence disturbed by the clicks of the keyboard, where people are busy competing with their computers. I work late very day just to esacpe the riddles of traffic and thus reach home tired, disgusted with myself and had to retire to sleep expecting another frustating day when I wake up.

What’s the difference in my present and past life? It’s dull, frustating, except for the money in the bank account. Is this my own approach of life or the environment in which I live has its part to play? I accept there is happiness in the luxuries bought by money, but are we paying a big price?

Are we busy living just for the sake of earning money and not enjoying our lifes? Even the condition in the place I belong to is no different. Is there something to be done about this or we have to bow before the machines we invent.

I suppose life is to live….. Life is to have fun…… Life is to spend time with friends.Life is to think of the world around us. It is there to enjoy each and every minute we are blessed to live. So I say earn money, have careers, be successful..but don’t do all these things mechanically. Afterall, What is Success for if we don’t have people to share it. Life is precious, care it, share it, enjoy it.


ఒక మధ్యానం…..భోజనం అయ్యిన తర్వాత, ఆఫీసులోకూర్చొని కునుకుపాట్లు తీస్తూ ఉండగా..నా సెల్ ఫోను మోగింది. మన వాళ్ళు ఓడిపోయినా క్రికెట్ మ్యాచ్ చూస్తానికి వేస్ట్ చేసిన నా రాత్రి నిద్రను కంపెన్న్సైట్ చేసే నా ప్రయత్నంని భంగ పరించింది ఎవరని చిరకుకగా మొబైల్ చూడగా అందులో నాకు పది వేలా డాలర్లు(మరీ ఇంత వెటకారమా) లాటరీ వచ్చిందని ఒక స్పాం మెసేజ్ వచ్చింది.
ఏమి చేయలేక మెసేజ్ డిలీట్ చేసి మళ్లి నిద్రలోకి జరేలోగా నా ఫ్రెండ్ సతీష్ ‘కాన్యు కం హియర్ ‘ అని పిలిచాడు .
ఇంకా నాకు నిద్రపోయే బాగ్యం లేదని తెలిసి లెగిసి సతీష్ దగ్గరికి వెళ్ళాను . వర్క్ అయ్యిపోయి టైం ని ఎలా వేల్లబుచ్చాలో తెలియని నా ఫ్రెండ్..గూగుల్ సహాయం తో ఏదో ఒక బ్లాగ్ చదివాడు..అది చూపించడానికి నన్ను పిలిచాడు.
బ్లాగ్పేరూ “మగపిల్లాడు..పిల్లమగాడు”….టైటిల్ ఇంతెరెస్తింగ్ ఉండడంతో నేను చదవసాగాను…అ బ్లాగర్ పేరూ ‘తోటరాముడు’……… తన చిన్ననాటి విషయాలు చాలా వ్యంగ్యంగా నవ్వుకునేలా వ్రాసాడు . అది చూసి నేను కూడా బ్లాగ్ చేద్దాం అని అనిపించి … ఇలాగ ..నా మొదటి బ్లాగ్ ..వ్రాస్తున్నాను.
