Intricacies of Heart and Souls

Standing in front of a monument built in memory of a war victim, or a statesman or a poet or many half bust statues, who have contributed a lot for the local, national or global changes and are being displayed in a stone block or statues, surely drew our attention and veneration, as sculptures appeared as “frozen music” to us and satiate our souls. Our hearts are keen to bestow honor to them for their endeavors for mankind, which we came across in the pages of history that they dedicated their lives for the welfare of the majority when they lived.

The heart is a unique device being crafted by nature, the natural pump to facilitate to supply of Oxygen and necessary nutrients for the rest organs in a body to develop and work. Not merely for other creatures, but even human can comprehend emphatically that our heart in the fetus develop first. It is equally the last organ to stop working in our body when we die. It is only our heart that begins to help us mentally think regarding our body, our organs, and all of our body cells and our heart; for all that it does tirelessly and selflessly, day in and day out.

While coming across the drama, “Julius Caesar”, the ordinary people of that time in Rome were enjoying the victory of Caesar and at the same time, they were celebrating their harvesting festival, known as Lupercal, on that very moment, few officials of the erstwhile ruler of Rome and a despot, known as Pompey being removed from his position by a collective effort by the then-Republican leaders, headed by Julius Caesar and the majority of the Roman people were aligning with the tune of them when asked by those officials with repugnance and their usual loyalty to their overlord, why they were celebrating the victory and what was their profession? They adamantly replied, “We mend souls”. Apparently, it appears that they were cobblers, on the other hand, it signifies that too can repair human hearts out of their heart’s content with jubilations, no longer in a frame of mind to be cajoled by those loyal bureaucrats of the former despot. That signifies evidently that the heart could be repaired too, not literally, but philosophically.

On the other hand, when we came across the story of Good Samaritan, we could evidently envisage the strength of heart to render love and empathy.

When we receive the tiding of a woman just conceived, we feel excited and it is no longer amazing to us when a man is becoming excited and asking his wife whether she could listen to the heartbeat of the baby in her fetus. A quintessential essence of nature regarding production and reproduction is nature’s phenomena and largely being eclipsed by heart.

A newborn baby only expresses laugh in due course which bears the eloquent testimony of sheer love. The baby’s mother feeds the baby with her breast milk by showering just mere love and having the alacrity of the wellbeing of her progeny, where love is the only vibe to manifest and inundate many with its unique essence of love alone. Thus the purity of a baby’s heart conveys the message of love alone which only engender harmony in manifold to explore with abundance in nature’s floor.

Human beings possess four chambers of heart, unlike aquatic as well amphibian-like reptiles lives, quite distinct from human beings and their behavioral patterns, which comprise two and three chambers respectively. Birds fly above the sky with two chambers of their heart like a dart too. But nature’s unique device, a natural pump ensures all to survive and thrive on nature’s floor by giving support to all organs to develop and make a distinction in our terrestrial design. Thus, it bears the eloquent testimony of the evolution of the hearts of all living organisms in continuous contents and forms.

It is extremely pertinent to comprehend the evolution of heart in real terms and we humans in the present era proving our supremacy out of all creatures who alone can manufacture various products out of our innovative capacity and thinking ability from nature’s raw entity which nature endows to us and many are unable to adapt with the motion we all inherently all possess, but unlike us, they fail to prove which only distinct us in terms of progressing.

There are some phenomenal prodigies who have ushered us with their advanced faculty, to invent technology and enabled us in terms of progressing human civilization to accelerate with infinite magnitude. At the same time, the regress of human advancement is too discerning to us and causing mayhem and bringing disaster to mankind too. Though they are considered as outstanding out of their merit and intellectual faculties, unfortunately, their heart did not evolve in accordance with the due pace for maintaining a balance in the eco-system prevailing, keeping in view to the overall development for mankind. The same personalities reveal the pernicious inclinations as an individual and hinder a lot to mankind.

Whether a statesman or a corporate honcho, for the sake of greed and individual fame, which is undoubtedly difficult to restrain in the available social structure, they only pave the way for sheer catastrophe, in spite of their individual advancement in the available society they are belonging. As an individual, they failed to evolve with regards to their heart and surprisingly their heart is still belonging to the pre-historic age. They observe nature as it appears to them with its materialistic manifestation, but impose their self-imagined beliefs based on myths, having no adherence to its apparent presentation and accepting the random motion within an object “Soul” is their basic concept out of which they tend to equate nature, not bothering the internal configuration as well external conditions, which plays a huge role in terms of the state they are adhered to. They hardly give any importance to a notion being derived from the real condition that when there was no existence of life, our Earth along with the universe exists. Even from various forms of creatures, it took billions of years for mammals’ complex hearts to evolve.

Our knowledge is too abstract and out of abstraction, we can enrich our knowledge to usher development for mankind and serve humanity.

Unfortunately, the emergence of few statesmen being supported by few wealthy people though appeared to be advanced and developed out of our judgment by virtue of the benefit we instantly acquire and precisely based on the paradigm of technology the posed before us along with their enviously garnered wealth, we unknowingly beckoning our own jeopardy by treating them as “cult figure”, who hardly possess the advance form of heart. Their souls rest on primitive designs of expressions that were unable to advance more with adequate reasons and being captivated with the erstwhile style of fabric, focusing merely on technology, devoid of science, made them a sheer frozen tool. Instantly they may fetch huge wealth out of their device and tricky style, but eventually, it will surely usher a bleak future not just for them, but for mankind too.

I wonder, why a successful person who is wealthy enough and claiming for having a scientific bent of mind and eulogized by myriad for their instant phenomenal rendition in terms of their personal skill and intellect, how come they manifest a wild gesture and attribute when they are at the pinnacle of so-called success, express vile intension and a sense of misogyny and display brazenly their vile inclination as wild as a primitive clan, regarding women and children? From their behavioral expressions, it is evident, despite their belonging to the modern era, their hearts are as backward as the pre-historic era, who used to dwell in caves and a concept of civility with regard to the modern era is no longer in existence with them. They are unfortunately still barbarian.

Finally, we could conclude that offering prayers to a statue, idol, or a stone block, engraved with rhetoric is nothing but we majority too subscribing a view to hinder the progress of human civilization and trying to freeze our heart, not to evolve which only can display love and empathy for all for the overall development for mankind. So, it is high time for us that should we give soul prior to our heart? Modern man with the heart of dinosaur or archosaur still we bear to legitimize that we are still bearing the lineage of our ancestral evolutional trajectory? Will we not acknowledge that we are in a constant process of change and evolution, not merely in ostentation, but also in our behavioral pattern to prove we are truly superior, even in terms of evolving our heart?

I Debasish Majumder, hailing from Kolkata, State: West Bengal, Country: India, born in a middle-class family in the year 1965 and brought up in an environment extremely favorable for me to garner knowledge from people from various walks of life. Their lives and livelihood are of immense gravity to me as I considered myself as a fortunate one to be facilitated to interact with those who possessed multi-faceted experience and thrived vigorously in their respective fields. Since my schooling as well the path of my studies till I completed my graduation in humanities and thereafter working in various organizations has enabled me to get hands-on experience about the twist and turns of life where I observed the plight of myriad who are economically vulnerable and how they combat the life and even capable to enjoy the every drop of it without complaining about their state. Since my childhood, my passion for the English language and English literature enabled me to explore the world in and around me out of fabulous authors and their valuable renditions which even unveiled front of me the true picture of nature and how it is now confronting peril out of greedy few sharks in the veil of few humans obliterating the very essence of humane! Their works encouraged me to pen down articles, short stories, and poems with my little ability and I have already had a number of paperback editions of my compilation of short stories and poems which are now available on Amazon and other global sites. My alacrity for learning regarding nature as well the society along with the people who are considered as the most precious imperative for us to be enriched. I am blessed by innumerable notable thinkers and philosophers whose works appealed to me enormously, and even helped me to shape up myself by virtue of their expressions. I am having little capacity to translate the reflections of the present society, precisely for the acumen of a myriad of learned persons who have helped me to widen my vista with their wisdom and wide array of knowledge. My sincere effort was navigated by those enlightened persons and I tried with my best of ability to reflect on the scenario I have observed in the journey of my life.
