A theoretical debate

We are from two worlds, you had declared
A smile like a scorn slipped through your lips,.
And i was ready for the battle.
If i conform, you say I have to break the rules.
Are'nt we equals, i ask
Fool, its your false consciousness, you sneer
May be I am a little unequal, i pacify,
Hegemony,Hegemony... you shout.
No, I don't mind being unequal, i rectify
Downward Mobility, you turn your face away
May be I am secular, i pant
Its your imagination, you swear.
I hate to be called Magnanimous, i cry
May be thats what you are, you try.
Are'nt we dialogic or victims both
I am getting desperate.
It is then that you start problematizing
whatever that came our way
freedom, equality, love, sex, gender all went
down the theory lane, you and me were left.
Like the proverbial Jack and Jill
We tumbled down with no water.
Tell me my dear, i am down on my knees
How do i thoeorise "us"?
You play the strategy of innocent violence
laughing at the naive dimensions of my thinking.


This is a poem i dedicate to an intelligent friend, a colleague of mine, who dragged me in to the arrogant world of theory. The truth that we are still wonderful friends prove all his arguments wrong for me. what to do, he is such a fool..!!

ലോകത്തിലെല്ലാവരും മിടുക്കന്മാരാണ്, അല്ലെങ്കില്‍ ശരാശരി, അതുകൊണ്ട് നമുക്കിനി മണ്ടന്മാരെയാണാവശ്യം.

thank u incorrigible MC:P
But what if i am the one to disrupt your symbolic order*
to speak carnivalesque*
and 'demystify' your identity?

* ref wiki ;)

നന്ദി വെള്ളെഴുത്തു മാഷെ, എന്നെയാണൊ ഉദ്ധേശിച്ചത് അതൊ മുകളിലുള്ള മറ്റേ വിദ്വാനെയൊ? ;)

A Mysterious man
Is the most-mistaken
Of all

Eagle or hawk
His hunger
Is what he bears out! ;)

a Mystery.

A sweating pig
in the market place;
a fattend calf
that makes
housewives drool.

ഉമ ചേച്ചി, തിരുത്തീട്ടുണ്ട്. വല്യവേദാന്തം പറയാന്നല്ലെ ഭാവം, ഇതൊക്കെ ആരു കാണാന്‍ എന്നല്ലെ കരുതീത്!
