Array of Chaos Part 3: GOD

There are few moments in life you always despise, the moments when you can’t interpret your own thoughts, you can’t identify with yourself. This article is written in one of such weak moments, since these moments are characterised by the fuzziness of thoughts which offer no such underlying relations, thus the article lacks a unifying theme in itself and is more of a realisation of various unrelated emotions. This is the third part of an article which has been trisected.


Is there a God? Again a paradox, sometimes I wonder whether everything is ambiguous in life or is there definitive reality. Even this can lead to a debate of illusion and reality. May be this is the reason I m so fascinated by life there are several questions which appear so simple but everyone has his own answers , all those answers are correct. You don’t have to follow a set of defined procedure to reach the solution; life on the other hand gives opportunities to explore your own solution which is different for every individual. The word ‘God’ itself, like love, is not well-defined. So by no means we can prove or falsify the claims of his existence if we don’t know whose existence we are talking about. So in reality the cynicism about God’s existence is perennial and thus will be God. So, there is one thing we can be sure of, the idea of God is eternal. Most of us see the order and sophistication around us and wonder we are special and so our existence can’t be a matter of chance, there must be a supreme but then we must appreciate the large no. of sample (there are billions and billions of planets) which suggests that our existence is just a matter of chance. In reality most of will never find out whether there is a God, so most of us are agnostic about his existence which an atheist can never falsify and a theist  can never justify. As far as I believe life is not always about knowing everything, there are a lot of thing you can never find out (a person can never find out whether he is in love he just believes that he is in) but you can still believe in them. If we are Theist we never need to justify God’s existence we just need to believe in it because having faith in your belief is the true devotion.

True devout never questions his existence,
He just trusts his belief.
Prayers are not your act of devotion,
Those who suffer render them relief.


Before I conclude I would acknowledge the fact that many of you might have found it a strange read as it lacks any unifying theme. It’s confusing and chaotic and thus not ordered or natural. But wait minute! Isn't it the most natural? This what nature seeks: To be more chaotic. It leaves the order to achieve randomness. But we, on the other hand being made up of similar atoms and ions that seek randomness, seek order. Strange isn't  Finally I have found out the unifying theme of my article: It’s the uniqueness of human mind to impart an order to chaos.


  1. Hmmm..interesting....your conclusions makes me appreciate the post :)


  2. Since conclusions are what should really appeal to the readers, so I suppose the article serves the purpose

Riding To Day's End

You look at your smartphone screen and try to calculate how much time will the cab driver take to finally reach your location. You acknowledge that, given the traffic in your city, the time you see on your screen may be quite off. You try to estimate whether you can squeeze in the final mail you want to drop before you call it a day. DROP, as if emails are bombs. They probably are. You click on the red compose button and, before the box opens, try to steal another peak. If ever every microsecond mattered, it is now. You start typing and notice how slow you are. You should have taken that touch-typing workshop in the college. Every 30 secs, you try to steal a peek at the dimly lit smartphone screen. You think you can pull it off. You have a mild sense of achievement and a smile sprinkled over your face. You are just there. 
You look back at the smartphone screen. The backlight is now turned off. You struggle to open the screen lock with one hand while typing the last line with another. …

You still not die?

Biting winds pierce by Ripping my soul into shreds Cold night that muffles me Whispers only of winter ahead.
I dare not hope for a fireplace Nor heat of a rug do I aim I seek that flickering candle-light To help me have some warmth in dream
Battered body, tattered soul Demand only one reply With goals lost and dreams crushed Why, o man, you still not die?

The above poem is merely a rephrasing of Robert Frost's poem A Question with my words and absorption of the core idea. The poem throws light on the immense pain and suffering that accompanies almost everyone's life; then, enquires meaning and worth of such an existence. Here is Robert Frost's original poem which is more lyrical and succinct.
A voice said, look me in the stars, And tell me truly, man of earth, If all the body-and-soul scars Were not too much to pay for birth.

Missing link in dream and reality

"I desire things that will destroy me in the end" -- Sylvia Plath While looking out of my balcony, I can always spot a single star in the sky. Probably with the pollution level in Bangalore , the dim ones are hard to spot. If it was southern sky, I could bet it was Sirius. But I don't know what direction it is in and I am too lazy to make any efforts to find out. Moreover the name of the star does not matter. However, it has a similar symbolic significance for me as green light had Fitzgerald's Gatsby. A dream well conceived , clearly visualised and yet beyond grasp. A dream thoroughly cherished and yet unattained. This brings me to another haunting question. How do people start dreaming whatever they start dreaming about? Frankly, it's Gatsby who comes to rescue. Gatsby's dream incidentally was a outcome of exposure to the girl( I wish I remembered her but I don't even care about finding right now) .   We can't dream of things we cannot envisage. I t…
