Ka(r)tha?

There are exclamations, and there are exclamations. There are those that are uttered when the mind is spellbound, and those when it is dumbfounded– the elegant and the crass… the `cultured’ aesthetic and the `can’t help it’ shocking… but the words that you are reading here are not among those. These are not the words that escape us on sudden realizations– those `A ha’ moments and those `Oh Shit’ moments! These belong to an entirely different category: words that take time to come out– happening to be amongst the most deceiving kind (not to the reader of course). It takes ages sometimes for these to come out and even then, by their very nature, the person uttering these is doubtful that there can be any truth in them– for it is vanity that brings about such words, and it is vanity that takes the fingers to the keyboard! These are the consequences of prolonged pondering on `what’s, `why’s and `how’s… of subjects and objects… of `whether’ the questions are ordered `right’ or `wrong’… of whether there exist any answers or not… of whether the questions are the ones to be asked or not…
