The societies can never be
creative. The battle to create wisdom for his benefit the man has to fight
alone. However, this is only a powerful hypothesis based on the history of
mankind, which needs not only pondering over, but also experimentation and
investigation for its future use.
Even if the man is able to
create the wisdom, often, nothing changes. A wisdom that is idle is like a
currency that is not in circulation. What do we do with all the wisdom that
exists in our scriptures?
Even if we leave aside our
scriptures for whatever reasons, do we seriously try to mould our conduct
according to the wisdom we ourselves might have created with a view to
verifying its workability? Perhaps, we never did it. There is no element of
‘wonder’ in our relationship with our surroundings. Maybe, we have to infuse
the element of wonder in our relationship with the societies we are a part of.
If we had ever tried to
conduct ourselves according to the wisdom available from wherever, we would
have felt the dire need to seek support of fellow human beings in our efforts
to verify the usefulness of wisdom for the mankind. The history of the mankind
has proved that the wisdom always percolates down the layers of the humanity to
refine itself through the individual efforts of many. Whenever the need of
collective efforts surfaces; the need of wonderful words appears.
Promod speaks very little; and virtually nothing about himself. Being an
engineer by qualification, he enjoys experimenting with whatever he does. At
the age of 65 now, he studies scriptures, teaches physics and experiments with
education. He says, “Making use of one’s intellect for exploration, analysis
and drawing inferences is fine; but, conclusions must come from the heart.”
After “Mahatma: A
Scientist of the Intuitively Obvious”, this is his second book.
