Recreation of the world

composition. What Michael Angelo Batio has been improving the technique of solid guitar is quite different from Bach's baroque composition and similarly, how Tapta pens his thoughts is unlike what the duet of Pahari-B Jayentakumar Sharma had devised; despite these, their You cannot music comprised the same notes, though in "The most original of authors are not so because different variations and most significantly, they advance what is new, but more because they think about know how to say something, as if it had never been what is not there all of them are in a class of their own. It matters how we become conscious of said before.’ things around us. There are no set rules of law to recreate things. We need fresh ideas In this regard, I remembered a friend who offered on how we make a pattern to create them without the rules. me a lesson on Hindu religion. He said that we cannot Blogging is also writing — what we used to do on a piece of think about things, which don’t exist. He did not specify the paper, now we simply type it on a screen using keys. At long places of ‘existence’ but he had expressed what he intended, last, what it counts is how we write the piece, literally with that God exists. I am an atheist and it is unamusing to talk a fresh pair of eyes and ears plus lucid visualisation of the about faith and sect, but I do admit that I like his idea about object. Fortunately, it does not depend on the medium where consciousness: you cannot think about what is not there. you write. The consciousness, the understanding and the Someone would just impulsively gab: think out of the box. power to create: these are the essence of recreation. Right and my statement can now be compared to a musical

efore the popularisation of blogging in the late Nineties, the world had seen several forms of writing. I had used Yahoo Messenger, mIRC and Orkut when Facebook arrived on the scene to make them look stupid. The postal service had a long history that when compared, it is an old man of one hundred years, to Email and Gmail that are new-born babies. So the question is whether our world is a laboratory for recreation. In retrospection, the world is seemingly whirling around a circle, albeit without a deliberation on its origin and reason. Or is that my professional duty has infused a set of thought, which makes me look upon this way? For as a sub-editor, my job mainly consists of giving a new life to an already 'living' thing. I have welcomed these ideas as, in addition to the above areas in communication technology, we have also been coming across new forms and shapes of any entity so often. It is not essential that it was created ‘originally’ and that it was made for the first time. To make the idea animate, it is initially hatched from experience, it is nurtured, and it grows to sustain itself. Citing another example, the Maruti car is quite popular — even a middle-class family can afford it — however undoubtedly, any new car model in its showroom had been redeveloped from an existing technology. So hopefully, I can now state that we are made up of recreation and things that have been redeveloped. Any technological innovation, revolutionary socio-political thoughts, a new artistic and literary form or that unfamiliar thinking is created from perceptibly the best precursor(s). Remember what Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said about originality:
