Talking about Kalyug and Karma together makes me feel like drinking hot chocolate and eating chocolate ice cream at the same time. So intensely contrast but still the extracts of same origin.
Karma is so popular! It is said to take revenge! I mean like really? In a world of science and horse sense, believing in something as superficial and baseless (non-existent, saying neoterically) as Karma sounds dumb and hysterical. Isn’t it?
Instead of waiting for Karma to play it’s game, we should take revenge ourselves and bark on a dog if it barks on us. THIS IS WHAT KALYUG IS ALL ABOUT.
KALYUG, or the AGE OF DOWNFALL! So aptly named, right? Everything is going down. If you know what I mean. The great part is that Kalyug is dominating Karma! The few selfless beings and their deeds are crushed by the burden of the pomp, show and fancy of Kalyug.
To be precise, Kalyug is the private sector and Karma the government sector.
Kalyug- Too much gain in a short time but immensely insecure and temporary, just like a house of cards.
Karma- Very slow execution but infinitely effective and permanent.
It’s really hard and requires a nearly impossible amount of patience to believe in Karma in Kalyug. But the dominance of Kalyug is just like that of the villain in a bollywood movie, which seems to be scary and dangerous before the interval and turns out to be a comic buffoon later!
I had a talk with Karma. This is what it said or rather beautifully said!
“I might seem weak and low
Ever heard of a zero?
Good gets better and bad gets worse
Take it as a boon or as a curse!
Wait for me, don’t react!
I do take revenge, it’s a fact.
Yeah! They do call me a bitch.
Maybe cause I neither ditch or switch
Be it the Weasleys or Richie Rich!”
I was mesmerised. I never knew Karma was a rhythmic bitch! Being a human being, a selfish thought of confronting Karma came itno my mind and I decided that today I’ll balance everything wrong that has ever happened to me. I was like, “Hey Karma! what about the people who hurt me? Will they be hurt equally?”
“Intentions matter, actions don’t
I do and will always haunt
Teach them a lesson they’ll never forget
Beware! I’m their life’s biggest threat!
But, don’t be on cloud nine, it’s too soon
None’s perfect, beheld the moon?
I forgive like a mother when I see
Deeds reversed, for the balance to be!”
I stood there agape. Perfect silence all around. It vanished. Leaving me behind. It taught me something I had never learnt. Forgiveness. Everything that came after it, was bliss. No more hate and no more regrets were left. Karma had Batista bombed Kalyug right infront of me! It remains victorious eternally!
