Say that I did.

This is one fine moment. I am awake. Yes truly awake.

My english is not exactly great rather its downright ordinary. Maybe because I hold in contempt the lanugauge as a medium for expression. This is because of the limits language. Where once we use words thats it the thought process is over. Where as in case of a painting or a movie you will think.

In language the words limit thought. They give boundaries. They give arbitary textures to the thought. This while is sufficient for most purposes, can act as a limitation for many a people. This in turn causes a sort of suffocation.

So what could be a better medium of expression. Or Could language become still better. Yes theres scope for both. Visual media is a better media than language. OFcousres there isnt any media which is the perfect one. Perfection is a relative term. Will mean one thing to one person.( For some aishwarya rai might be perfect and for
others monica bellucci is

I dont know how well this is turning out to be. Anyway continuing in my own manner, The need for expression, communication is something innate in every living object. For them its the act of being alive. Life as a form of art is the supreme art. Where one should savour the feeling of being alive.
Its the feeling of being able to feel thats the Imost important.

I started out this writeup with no aim, AIM is something abstract thats something up there in our heads. Its not real as physically tangible. But for that matter neither is time.

We are supposed to be seeing the effect time has on us.

Analyzing the reason for this particular blog, I find it that, most probably it might be because of a some films I recently viewed. Particularly by Ingmar Bergman. Those movies made me think like no other had. I was averse to seeing black and white movies. But the content of these movies made me sit up and take notice just like that.

Ah the funny part is When I started this out I was not sleepy but Now I am :). WIll hit the sack just after I post it. ITS 3 in the morn, Perfectly respectable time for a person to go to sleep. But I do wonder When I will see the light of the day again. Prolly after 9 :P.

Some titles are better left unsaid

Lot can be said about anything, But usually it results in NOTHING. Most probably this particular blog entry wont change anything. My language skills are extremely inadequate for the task I have set for myself. Just an hour before, I saw somewhere someone discussing about whether rape merits hanging as punishment. It was supposed to be some SMS poll or something, anyway 95% answered in the affirmative.

It was a shock to me, this is not to justify in any way rape. That is a very heinious crime. What it does is to take away the dignity. Where its more of an assault on the mind and the intellect, rather than physical. So it severly disorients ones view of the world. Its like doing something to your body and mind that you detest by those whom you detest. Agreed these are all true, but Is hanging the rapist a solution to the problem.

Here what is being, done is to make the punishment for hte crime severe so that it serves as a detterent to the crime. But the question that arises in my mind is there soemthing called a greater crime or lesser crime, Where taking the life of the aggressor is a necessary crime committed by the society. Yes when I say the society, everyone who feels that the rapist should be hanged, has a part in that crime, because we make the society.

This is the very reason that has prompted me to blog about it. I dont feel that I can remain a mute spectator who agrees with this law. I believe each individual has got his own or her own freedom and messing up with that to various degrees is always bad.
Granted that the rapist should be given punishment. Its just that I feel sentencing one to death whatever the crime maybe is a bigger crime than anything else. OH yes its my personal view. If its just the natural system, I would suggest that the one whom is the percieved threat for the masses would be removed from existance by the masses. I wouldn't suggest that for a so called civilized system.

No dont ask me whats the punishment that needs to be meted out to this particular crime. I would suggest that thats something society needs to discuss. Gradually a sort of general idea will emerge. eg: condemning the criminal to 30 yrs Life imprisonment. And yes there are varying degrees of the crime.

Bah!! the shit that I have written above just says that rape shouldnt get death sentence as punishment. Simply because sentencing one to death is not a solution to this Issue. Ofcourse the other part is that if you project something as a solution to a problem with enough clarity in media then that would seem to be the solution to a majority. That doesnt mean its the solution.

So what we need the most here is attitude of the society to the fact that Life doesnt stop at all after such an incident. It can still be a wonderful experience. The victims needs the support of the society as a whole. If not why call ourselves a civilized society. There should be trauma counselling cells which could help the victims.

In the end I know this blog is just for my comfort. So I stop.

(PS: Havent been bloggin for quite a while and suddenly I found it difficult to blog. Meaning It wasnt exaclty easy to put into words what I wanted to say, and I wanted to say a lot more here. )
