Who teaches the fish to swim?

first_imgThe trollers are funny people. At least that’s what they think about themselves. No harm. I “think”, the right to think is the only right which remains protected across the world. Worried about the title of the article? Me too.Back to the trollers. This morning the first WhatsApp message I read was :“No one teaches a Volcano to erupt,No one teaches a Tsunami to rise,No one teaches a Hurricane to sway,No one teaches a man or a woman to select a wife or husband,Calamities just happen!”And the trollers expect you to smile and share. We politely oblige. I disagree.There must be someone behind all the mischief. This “No One” must be “Someone” who is intelligent and invisible.Because, unlike the C-thing which is invisible and so far invincible, this “Someone” whom many call God has existed for centuries with name, form and residences and addresses across the world. Depending on the level of literacy and capacity to imagine, this “Someone” has been attributed to different human and demonic traits.Fish has been food for the hungry and food for thought for those who are not hungry for ages. Like the question in the caption, fish has been used in place and out of place by many.By teaching someone to fish, you can make someone find a source of income for life.Fish out of water describes one’s problems in adjusting to a different situation.To explain the present-day corruption, Kautilya, in Arthashastra referred to the difficulty in finding out when the fish drinks water.Tarun Kumar, a Ph D Scholar had this to say about Kautilya’s observation :“Corruption is so obvious, and yet so mysterious. Even Kautilya reflected serious concerns about opacity in the operations of the world of the corrupt. Illegal transactions were so shrouded in mist that he compared embezzlers to fish moving underwater and the virtual impossibility of detecting when exactly the fish is drinking water. He also noted that while it is possible to ascertain the movements of birds flying in the sky, it is difficult to gauge the corrupt activities of government officials.”Needless to say, Kautilya talked about a time when there was one King and others involved in governance were ‘government officials’.So, trollers are right for once. No one teaches the fish to swim or drink water. It’s all in its DNA.Natural calamities just happen. No need to wait for them. Live this moment. Saying your prayers whenever you feel helpless.This will also pass. I’m not sure, though!last_img read more
