A Lost Concept?









I feel privileged to write for Purba Ray, the czarina of blogdom. Followers of her blog A-Musing know that Purba is an immensely gifted writer. No wonder, her readers get sucked in by the whirlpool effect of her wit, sarcasm and self-deprecating humour. Yep, she’s that good.
Click Here and read my post on Purba’s blog A-Musing.

Here is a snippet: 

A Lost Concept?
‘Who is your role model and why?’ used to be a common essay topic while I was in school. There were options – Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, parents, grandparents.
Two decades later, when my son was in school the topic morphed to, ‘Do we need role models and why?’
Today the concept of role models has lost relevance. We want to chart our own paths, role models be damned.
For one, there is a serious dearth of role models. And since definitions of morality are in a state of flux, black and white have merged together to give us more acceptable shades of grey. What was wrong a decade ago does not evoke the same outrage today.
Income tax raids ruined reputations. You could be a party president today.A corrupt cop in a Bollywood movie was a baddie. Today he is the mainstream hero who mints millions.Women drinking in pubs were unacceptable. It is a sign of liberation today.
