A supreme voice commands me to revisit Indian Mythological Stories
and draw out my own meanings and conclusions
taking into mind the current times and modern world lifestyles
There were several doors in front of me
And I had to decide which door I enter first
And accordingly, ask for the respective key from the supreme wisdom
The first door that drew my attention had “Ramayana” written over it
And thus I decided to this of the many Indian Mythological Stories
read and understood so many times in my childhood and
a number of times thereafter.
And everytime you read any of the Indian Mythological Stories
you draw out a different meaning out of it.
In fact, it all depends on time.
I asked for the key to the door inscribed Ramayana
that I got immediately.
I turned the key and stepped in. What I saw
was an altogether different set of meanings.
Ram was a symbol of light and Ravan was a symbol of Dark
But both have their own importance in today’s life.
Gone are the times when you can live as Ram and
suffer so much happily.
As a matter of fact, in today’s world
we all are a combination of light and dark.
Only thing is the ratio varies in each individual
along with time, age, circumstances, and knowledge.
Ravan was no less in knowledge to anyone
in the whole universe.
Still he didn’t know his purpose to live and
a reason to exist.Photo credit: nevil zaveri ( thank you for 10 million+ views : ) via Visual hunt / CC BY
Indian Mythological Stories
In fact, acquiring knowledge and wisdom is something
But knowing our purpose to live and a reason to exist
is equally important.
Rather, it makes more sense in today’s time.
Though there are many Indian Mythological Stories to introspect
and to learn from.
