A contented individual does sees the importance of his life. He is not moved at any plot to sway him towards compromising. He stands firmly to his views ad-midst challenges, he does recognizes the importance of his name, not just a tagging symbol, but a source of daily inspiration to him if judiciously deciphered. He does stands for something and that is greatest, success and triumph, no matter the obstruction.

The above is the ideal man, but is this man still on planet earth, one begins to wonder, perhaps, he has taken the next flight to Mars or possibly gone into extinction like Pluto.  He finds it really difficult to exist in this contemporary society of ours filled with different individuals of heterogeneous nature.

One may ponder if this should be the case for an ideal man, a mentor, a model. No. the order of the day lays credence to the direct opposite of the ideal man, he is seen as a rebel, an outcast who does not flow with the trends in the society. Mother nature is far from his rescue, he faces neglect, and stigmatization. He is seen as someone who should have existed in time past, perhaps in the time of investors and technocrats.

The society today prides herself with social imbalance, stratification  and salvaging the society does not seem to be in the dictionary of the ordinary common man. No one is to blame, since the job has not been allocated to anyone and since it is no man’s job, perhaps someone is waiting for somebody to do the job for everybody.

The point raised here is just a clarion call to all and sundry to rise and raise heads above water, live up the dreams of the functionalists and the pragmatists. Be involved, do not sit back and relax thinking someone is going  to do the job, its our job, our responsibility. Happy reading.
