Forbidden mockery,a new weapon in the arsenal

Aseem Trivedi

Did you know that sometimes IIT’ians do care about their country.Trust me they do love their country.The reason why many of them (including me) aspire to work outside their country is purely because of two reasons:

(a) Poor Girl:Boy ratio at IIT’s which makes them think that they can find chicks(girls) in shores of foreign nature

(b) Futile systems that have ridiculously complex rules beyond comprehension

The first point might be an exaggerated fact because IIT guys do find good chicks in the campus,if not through the year, atleast during the Moodi fest.The second point is about how immature the systems in place are.Of course the creator of the system is not to blame because when the system was created it was created to the best of the creator’s knowledge and times and it catered to most of the problems known to have existed.The reason why great systems fail and crumble because the guardians of the systems who succeed the system administration fail to realise the importance of one crucial thing that rules every natural systems across the universe. EVOLUTION or rather CHANGE.

The guardians of the system try to protect the system in it’s original form and resist change which is why systems fail to address new problems that arise with changing times.Hence, disruption happens and the old system is destroyed and a new order is created.The new system in place runs without problems for a while and then when times change , problems change and hence the system starts to irk the people.Most of the people stay quite and silently watch the fall without realising that they are also in the sinking ship.But some people raise voice against the system and a new order is created.Like this, the cycle of creation and destruction continues.

Aseem Trivedi's cartoon against corruption

Assem Trivedi seems to be one of those who does realise that the ship is sinking and has dared to raise his voice.But he had to gone to the extent of insulting the nation by insulting the emblem(because silent prayers and humble requests doesn’t seem to be working anymore), but his intentions were purely to cleanse the dirty corruption; I do not know if going to forbidden limits will be a new norm in revolutionary’s and activist’s arsenal ; if that is so, a new world is waiting for all of us, but , before that we have to face the destruction of the current world order. Let’s get ready for the ride !!!

If CHANGE is difficult to incorporate in the making of a durable and  sustainable system atleast try to mimic the systems made by nature which have failed-to-fail even after million years of existence.

Following was one of the facebook stati of mine during my curriculum project during which I realised a fundamental difference between the way GOD and GAME DESIGN COMPANIES design their games(worlds/systems)

“God(atheists read god as  nature) created amazingly-complex world with stunningly-simple rules, but , we humans fail to beat God in creating worlds because we tend to create stupidly-simple worlds with ridiculously-complex rules”
