Currently there are many kinds and types of Religion people follow. I also over heard the statement that “Athiest” are also believers. Atheist have a strong belief that the God does not exist. In all types of religion there are several believes which comes along. These belief systems forms groups of similar thinking people. And sometimes the case happens the reverse. Instead of people’s believes that unite them with the group, Its the Group Rituals/belief system/religion that forces a person to think in a certain way and block the other observations.
Recently after easter 2016 I had some visitors following to my house paying their visit and visits turned into discussions. I would love to share many of the discussion happen in my own house but don’t want to turn the UTSP blog into a ring of fight between god acceptors and rejectors. So I would like to share a story long before I was born and the authentication of the story I just trust my mother who told me this story.
Not so Long before the Telephone was so popular in common man houses, another discovery of science called “TELEGRAM” was famous and popularly used. To get familiar with the system of using a TELEGRAPH, it was taught in Schools. Strange to express but till my class/grade 5th of education even I had to learn how to use TELEGRAPH system for distant communication. The Telegraph system relied on Post-Office, the same office used for Paper Mailing on those days.
A person, if want to communicate to other person having more than 500km of distance for assumption had to go to his nearest Post-Office and ask for a Telegraph Form. Sending The Telegraph was charged per word. I mean if you would like to say “I am fine Thank you” you would be charged Unit Price x Number of words. And for the last line you would be charged approx 2.5$ assuming 50 cents per word. Overall I want to say that the messages had to be as brief as possible to save money and thus only important short hand words use to be used for the distant communication.
Usually the Mail would be taking three to seven days to reach within a country. The telegraph made it possible to convey the message in as less as 3 to 5 hours.
Thus immediate communication was a matter of trouble and with less communication it increased the worries in natural transitions.
One day My Grandmother decided to visit our house. As grandmother was getting old, special care had been taken for her transport. My grandfather boarded her from a Bus which comes from Nagpur to Chandrapur which is a distance of about 165km and takes only 3 hours to reach by bus. As my grandfather already Telegram to my father that she will be taking the bus to reach our home, My father was well prepared to go to the Chandrapur bus stop and receive her. Granny stayed in our house for some days and then decided to return to her own house in Nagpur.
My father did the same and send a Telegraph that which bus Grandmother would be boarding to come to Nagpur so that Grandfather is well prepared to receive her on the bus stop of Nagpur.
After one day my father Received a telegraph from my Grandfather, “GRANDMOTHER DID NOT REACHED HOME. DID SHE LEAVE THE CHANDRAPUR ON TIME?”
The telegraph started a situation of panic in the house. My mother and father both were stressed that how come Granny did not reach the Nagpur Station when my father himself accompanied her to the bus stop. The worried started increasing that does something had happened to the Bus or Granny? Any Accident on Road or Robbery on route? The worries kept increasing and solution did not appear. At that moment my mother suggested that though this might be a superstitious believe but there is a person who can help. My father was introduced with a person called “MAA SHEELA” living in Chandrapur.
Maa Sheela had the power to directly connect with GOD and ask for solution of people’s problem. My father went to her, explained her the current situation and Maa Sheela closed her eyes, talked with God for sometimes and said to my father, “Don’t worry, your mother is safe, She has gone to her known house and will return in two or three days.”
Though my father heard the words of ‘not to worry’ about the matter happening now but alas he was a son, and at this point a skeptic person to even believe someone could talk to God at all. He was only worried for his mother to be safe.
Three days passed and then my father received another telegram from my grandfather saying “GRANDMOTHER REACHED HOME. HAD STAYED WITH HER SISTER FOR TWO DAYS.”
All the worries had gone in an instance but something more happened on that day. The seed of Inception had been sown on my father’s faith/believe system. As the “Maa Sheela” exactly predicted where my Granny was, thus my father started believing on her story and her powers to actually connect with GOD. And till date, he still believes the MAA Sheela system of connecting God and seeking answers is the right way to find answers.
When Maa Sheela Died two-three years ago from now, a new concept was introduced. The story is that the next of kin of Maa Sheela had been passed the powers to and now Maa Sheela communicates to the new person by spreading the light of knowledge by the Framed Pictured on the Room where Maa Sheela use to live. And people including my father still believe that is true.
If any of you reader are still reading the story that I am continuing to write then you might have a mixed view about the story, Either if you are a believer you might believe in the power of Maa Sheela, if you are a non-believer then you might believe in that Maa Sheela’s Power does not exist or she is a con artist. And coming to recent belief by one of the preacher of Christianity said, that the connection that Maa Sheela had was not seeking help from god but from the Devil smile emoticon
What ever the vantage point you may have now, I would just like to express that with story I could just explain or understand how the seed strong Inception of a Belvie system was installed in one man when he was in a mature age of taking wise decisions. I cannot generalize it to all but mostly seed of Inception in today’s era is started when a human is very small. When Human Babies are of very young age and are ready to accept all the stories you tell to them without asking back the logical questions, let that be of Any GOD or any Superhero, The Human Baby believes in the story.
The Human baby enters the point of Inception the moment you start telling the story. Let that be Allah (Peace be upon Him), Jesus (loving you), 35million types of Hindu God and Goddess, The child is believing the stories you are telling him or her. Currently I would say My time to enter any mode of inception is not arrived yet and I am just reading and exploring various religions and their sculptures along with the impact that they cause in Human development or destruction.
I would just urge the current and future parents reading my post, please give your child the chance to choose his/her own belief system. Right or Wrong, let him face the consequences and Trust him/her on the capability that as an Individual, the Human Baby can make a decision best suitable of the time and era he/she is living.
Have a Happy Week Ahead.
