Getting hurt by the misconstruction:Where does the blame lie?

In my personal opinion,modern world is a make believe one!Hence, it is imperative to sculpt one's public image in a cautious manner and accord the appropriate insight to the invidious gaze for getting viewed in the right perspective.The onus lies on the impessario itself.Cautious people engage the inherent efficacy of the suitble media and apt selection of the words to communicate his or her thoughts.

To grab the attention and engender curiosity or to make one understand the point of view in considerations, one normally employs the highly effective communiction tools in the face of impact articles, blurbs, meet the press-do and other equally potent Public Relation means to influence the opinion of target receivers with a motto to be comprehended in a pristine way.

Inveighing against the Scallywag or simpleton wil not serve the purpose.One needs to blame oneself if one gets misconstrued by the target audiences.

It is not enough to be good, rather what is good should appear and appeal in the exact spirit and letters to the others.One can not afford to leave one's individual image to judged in the furtile imagination of the gawky public vision.

Insincere vision interprets and reinterprets and relying on one's own outlook, considers the overcooked inglorious self-justified interpretation of the given facts as the "Reality".To understand it in perspective, some illustrations can be considered.

A public display of the affection by planting a kiss on the forehead of a beautiful girl may call for a myriad reactions from the public at large.To give a right meaning to that kiss,the person in action will have to make sure to solemnise his act by cautiously selcting a "Raksha Bandhan' Day or the Valentine one!

To absolve himself from the slanderous charge, British Premier David Cameron took the pain to refute the opporobrium.He avered that he may have interacted with Rebekah Brooks in several social gatherings .but he was sure of himself that he had not seen her in her pyjamah.Here, the quote is bound to be misconstrued!

Dominique Strauss Kahn stands a felon in the eyes of the world-community , but his betterhalf Anne Sinclair refuses to accept the said opinion. Furthermore, In the Dominique Stauss-esque act of Arnold Schwarznegger his legitimate wife Maria Shriver took the affront and had preffered to walkout from the wedlock.

An unassuming potter offers a statuette of a deity to a worshipper by charging a paltry sum.The devotee in question offers his prayers to the same deity to be answered in the form of the monitised blessings to the tune of billions or trillions!

In the state of ecstasy, saurabh Ganguli took off his jersey to express his jubiliation at ground of Lords.The moral brigade of the civity finds it in poor test.

Normally, in the state of unbelievable exhilarations,eyes shed tears. Certainly,it doesn't concur in the fitness of the occasion.A tearful eye can give a wrong impression to the viewers.

These are the grotesque illustrations of visualisation of a fact from one's own perspective.

The dictionary meaning is not sufficient to give the soul or the approprite meaning to the expressed words. It is the acceptance of the persona of an individual in the eyes of the target audience or the intention loaded behind the words that give them the intended meaning.
The same expression earns accolade to somebody, whereas the poor soul gets lampooned.Scorns regale nonplussed nonentity for the misconstructions!

The casuality is the eloquent voice that takes refuge in the taciturnity. The fear of getting misinterpreted weighs heavy on the act of the interactive social bondings.The fearful psyche retires in the comfort of the confinement of four walls of one's own room.

Culture and education also contribute to the misconstruction of communication.Hillary Clinton flashes her smile to stamp her total command of the situation on her diplomatic trip to acountry.The healty diplomatic gesture is misconstrued as smirk or smugness.

A commercial spoof enacted in a lighter vein against a particular liquor brand had finished in a acrimonious wrangles.It is believed that the said act has besmirched the pride of offended family and the sensibity of the community in general.

The irony is that the Advertising standards Council of india (ASCI) has failed to find the same under its scanner.

Most of the time, people feel wronged and sensible image suffers the severe jolt.

In the cathartic fit of anger,rumbustious Delhites speak swear words and thus become a picture of rustic dross.The cuss expressed in catharsis may not form the basis to judge the actual self of an individual in said situation.

The studied silence of PM Manmohan Singh agonise The erudite journalist Barkha Dutt. She prodes him to communicate with the people.There is valid apprehension that public find him a non-assertive, remote controlled or a weak PM.But ,the truth may not be the perceived one.She asserts that said silence is bound to be misconstrued in the public eyes.

Hence, it is imperative to honour the wisdom of the people and help them to understand the confused reality.A self regulation is a must and people mustn't be taken for a ride in the garb of the hyperbole!People deseve a semblance of respect and they mustn't be left to lurch in alleys of the perceived ignorance of the actual fact or otherwise compelled to restrain or retort the philosophically correct offender at the first place.

A feminine insight : Race against time

Feminism sprouts out in various colours and forms on the verisimilitude of a perspective, usually defined by the uppity opinions, mundane likes and dislikes of the exiguous constituents i.e the effusive votary of the said ism or the swarm of uptight crybabies living in utopian orb. There is a force that wants one to subscribe one's personal legend.A meticulous effort is made to get the attention!

It is just a chimera to be an oracle in one's world. Penchant for grandeur draws the succour from the cherished "principle of favourability".It would be a fallacy to consider one self as an isolated superior entity in the present day society.

It is an imperative to devise a way to create a collaborative win-win situation for the constituents of the society i.e male and female and the other ilk of human existence living on the margin.Compartmentalization of society doesn't auger well for the prospective generation.

Paternalistic or patriarchal form of the society resulted in lopsided development of the constituents of the all inclusive populace.Male Chauvinism came to fore and given rise to the gender inequality. With the passage of time, the completely illogical or ridiculous thought became a norm.  Logical head failed to anathematize the faux pass and inclined to follow the movement of the body society.The anachronism begs for a change in perception to find its relevance in this modern society which touts out " Achievement and Excellence" as unisex.

Gender is just a biological concept. The whole gamut of the macro considerations of society, has bifurcated the composite conscience of the body society. Improvement in literacy and economic development have sprung up competition on mental surface.Erudition and edification   come to both the sexes.

The follies of the past has been underlined and a string of oleaginous feminine activism came in the being. A Bra -burning movement took place in 70's to uphold the credence that women are at par with men and deserve to be treated  alike.A pink chaddi compaign vehemently opposed the prohibitory notion that women in the pub deserve to be slapped around.

From time to time, feminine discontent and disapproval against the insensitivity of the society cranes up its neck in the face of fancifully orchestrated campaigns and by establishing  different forums to oppose the medieval mind set of the male community.

PPR foundation for women,s Dignity and Rights deserves a special mention in this context. Some of the well known dignitaries like celebrated author Taslima Nasrine, Somali super model Waris Dirie and Hollywood actress salma Hayek, are associated with the said forum .This forum has campaigned against the female genital mutilation. Waris Dirie is herself a victim of the said insensitivity.

In saudi Arabia, as per the law of the land, a is not allowed to drive her car. Manal al-shrief has spearheaded a campaign against it and has drawn the attention of the women to fight for their privilege & right to sit behind the steering wheel of their personal vehicle. It is viewed as an struggle for the gender equality and as an assertion of the fact that women can choose the modern way of living  her life !

Religious perseqution with the pretension of moral superiority over the rest of the world , has also worsened the status of the women in the society. Ashma jahangir- a lawer of supreme court of Pakistan and a social activist par excellence has emerged a robust legal voice of the enfeebled women of the respectice society.

Gender apartheid and gender chauvinism are the world wide phenomenon. The shabby treatment meted out to women are the outcome of the flawed attitude, cultural obstacles etc. prevalent in the particular socity. Emotional and physical violence in  the wdelock by the intimate partner is witnessed elite or rural society.

In the  light of the aforediscussed backdrop, hyperventilation of the feminine concerns against the sexual, psychological and economical crimes are quite understandable.A slut walk in Torrento has been orgaized to protest against the remarks of a local police officer that  reads ,"slut like dressing invites victimization".A senior plice officer, in India, has also cautioned the female to avoid moving alone  in the city at odd hours . Uproarious female voices have denounced  the  miasmatic suggestions.Of coure, playing macho women can,t be solution of the said discmfort.

Here, the method of protest may be wrong one, but this tendency to oppose is a good sign.

The civil society, national govt. and international community have to put their acts together to thwart the nefarious manace that keeps on engulfing the community in qestion.

Undoubtedly, the potential, insight or the wisdom of the women can not be wasted. In the softer domain, women symbolize heart, mind and conscience of the society. A woman is blessed with the intuitive understanding of the truth about people or the situation.This other half of the society is the humanity's greatest untapped resource.

Egomania or self delusion of the male community has undermind the potential of   huge women resources. Khap Panchayat and honour killing of the girls are the bane of modern society.

Sexual harassment at the working place, gender pay gap and barring the women from working in a certain industries or doing particular job etc. are still some of the subject of grave concern for female as a community in particular and soiety in general.Of course, law is at place . But, ineffective implemetation of the same results in the sorry state of the affairs! The empowerment of the women by ensuring their representation in the parliament, judiciary and other enforcement agencies is is imperative to accord them the rightful place in the society.

                Win all, i.e men and women, is call of the time!
                 Let the society win!
