A few friends have suggested that some people find my writing personal things on blog arrogant, pompous or showy. However, I’ve found that I can illuminate my point of view more clearly by writing about myself. Moreover, I enjoy writing about myself and my own perspectives more than anything else. That’s coz I can say authentically only about myself. Those who’re bitten by the writing bug know what I mean. As Jagadish Ghimire also wrote in his ‘Artarman Ko Yatra’, a person is the happiest when he’s talking about himself.
That’s true. The primary reason for doing something should be that you enjoy it. Even from the point of view of social contribution, you can contribute the most by doing something you enjoy. And blogs were invented for people like me. Thanks to the blogosphere, I can talk to the whole world without speaking a single word. And I can do so without forcing anyone to listen to me.
So, when someone recently told me that he wants to write a book and if could give him any suggestion, I suggested him to write his own autobiography. “But can one be honest while writing an autobiography?” he asked. Well, how honest one can be depends on various factors. But who’s going to believe you even if you’re honest about yourself?
People would always be skeptical even if you stated your ‘goodness’ honestly. And people would immediately agree with you if you’d say that you’re a pig. Becoz people judge you not according to who you’re, but according to who they’re. When you say that you’re a pig, it feeds their ego. And when you say something ‘good’ about yourself, it hurts their ego. If you’d go about worrying what people think of you, you’ll never be happy.
Hence, I told him, “So what? You’re your whole world. Write your own autobiography, you’ll enjoy it.” And I’m my whole world. Therefore, instead of cursing the politicians and other people, I decided to sing my own qualities. So what if it sounds like bragging to others? I’ve always challenged people that if you think I’m bragging about myself, then prove me wrong.
Then people ask me, “So, you think yourself very smart…ehh. You think you don’t have any negative traits?” Those who ask me such questions, I’ve only one thing to say, “But why should I talk about myself negatively? If you’re interested in my weaknesses, the whole world knows it. Go and ask them.”
For example, I often call myself ‘Divas the Great’. And some people say that it shows my megalomaniac tendency. They ask me, “Show us, what great thing you’ve done?” I haven’t done anything great that I may show to others. Even if it’s my megalomania, you’re learning about megalomania. But, that I call myself ‘great’ is a fact, not my opinion.
And by calling myself great, I’m not comparing myself with anyone. I’m incomparable. I’m what in Sanskrit it says, “Aham Brahmasmi”. I’m the whole universe. I was simply born great. You might have heard that slogan, “I was born great, but education ruined me.” Thank god, I did not let education ruin myself.
In fact, people should thank me when I declare that I’m great. What I’m saying is that just as I’m great, you’re also great. I can see that you’re also great, but you don’t realize it. There’s just no comparison. As Walt Whitman said, I’m just celebrating myself. And if you wish, you may also celebrate yourself.
Btw, hey babes, did I say that I’m not only great, but I’m still single. Are You Interested? 😉 😆
