Save the change!

Change, the most unalterable word for a ‘square peg in a round hole’ me and try as I might to reinforce the metamorphosis element in my disposition, it simply does not happen and woefully remain a misfit. I am cheerful, genial, sensitive and can keep adding adjectives to describe my personality as they are absolutely free not costing a penny and totally under my control ready to be unleashed at will, but switch, transform, adapt, the need of the hour buzz words, (and why three words, just in case my readers are pondering, it is that I cannot remember more than three at a time) are out of bounds for me; it is like taking a horse to the water but not make it to change!

So I am a leopard with its spots firmly on or a Zebra that is not willing to change its stripes; now you stumble upon the animal instincts in me, nevertheless they do adopt and adapt to survive and that lovely company too eludes me.

What triggered me to the obsession with the celebrated and sought after jargon, ‘change’ apart from the normal embarrassing predicament that I am in, is the Television serial on the famed and loved Sherlock Holmes recreated in 2010 by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat that took the world by storm with an incredible Internet Movie Database (IMDb) rating of 9.3! The creators have brilliantly superimposed Sir Arthur’s genius sleuth and his doctor partner in 21st century London. The modernized version keeps the essence of the characters very much intact but craftily uses the detective and the plots to suit and vibe with the current generation, hooked and obsessed with smart gadgets. I ‘deduce’ myself like a penny waiting for change while the world around me converts and mutates at the click of a finger.

Everything and everyone is undergoing sea change – the Sun, the moon (distancing itself from the Earth and I can consider the reason to be the brutal and merciless killing of human beings across the globe in the name of religion), the seasons, tidal waves, topography, technology, people, products, services, plants, fruits and vegetables with hybridization, birds ( abandoning traditional nests on trees, for there are no trees) and building hopes and dreams for their fledglings in kitchen chimneys, food, beverages, mode of transport, buildings (I look up to the Burj Khalifa open mouthed), toon characters, classes with smart boards, films, music (genres I have long lost count of), politics, history, society, culture, talent, intelligence, arms and ammunition, extremist outfits atrocities, greed, profiteering, annexations, traffic, population, behaviour, attitudes, perceptions…the Earth in a nutshell, from the elements to the abstract, altering, modifying and innovating while I remain rooted to terra firma very much tilted and inclined to the unyielding cow or bull in the middle of Indian roads!  And you know where my sympathies lie…don’t you?

Resolute and unwavering in my thoughts and actions despite the turn of events, there is turbulence and pandemonium in my brain to go with the flow and not swim against the current and try to turn the tide in my favour! But each passing day manifests itself in more complex labyrinths that are beyond the bounds of possibility for the hackneyed old chestnut! And who said Elementary, my dear Watson!

  1. Beautiful piece of writing as always, Sunita. Whatever else you may want to change, don’t change in your literary ways 🙂 You know I’m a fan & eagerly wait for your articles:)
    I don’t know why I’ve avoided Sherlock..I really should get to it soon
    My change is slightly different from your direction in that I want to move away(maybe just a few degrees) from the current times…This article brought back to me countless thoughts one being the day I left facebook! I know it sounds silly but for a social media addict like myself, it’s a huge deal! The week after that, boredom haunted me & that’s when my blog was born. Best CHANGE ever…as a fellow blogger I’m sure you understand:)
    (The husband tells me I should write an article about that..maybe, someday 🙂 )
    Have a great weekend:-)

  2. Wow Sunita! Sherlock Holmes remake had such a profound impact on you. I had seen a few episodes for my daughter used to watch it regularly.
    As for change, it is the only constant in life which we all need to accept whether we like or not and adapt ourselves to the change.
    You have beautifully explained it in this post.
    Have a lovely weekend 🙂

    • Thanks Somali and wish you the same. It was my son who reintroduced me to the world of SH and the racy pace at which this remake goes is awe inspiring!
      Agreed that a paradigm shift is essential to be accepted, it is sometimes herculean and messy, although the fruits of the labour may be sweet!
      Thanks for the inputs on change and will try harder to be part of the system!

  3. It’s so true how we are not in sync with nature that’s making life rife with violence and the change is more upside down than anything else! Change, quite complex in practice, I feel and it’s something I am still trying to discover. Powerful writing:)

  4. I had a genuine tirade with my 11-year-old regarding the Sherlock series 😀 He is an ardent fan of Cumberbatch and I kept on saying that the old one was a MUCH better one and that Gatiss-Moffat has almost done to the story what we call reverse-engineering 😀

    I’m smiling all the way reading your post, Sunita…a great piece on ‘change’… 🙂

    • Hi five or pump fist to your son Maniparna as I am also a zealous fan of Benedict and prefer the remake to the original TV series for the sheer pace and the relation it has to the current state of affairs and at the same time retaining the essence and mannerisms of the characters. Undoubtedly the original was superb but somehow SH then was on carriages and in mansions and palaces that seems boring:)
      Thanks for liking the link to change from a TV series:)

  5. Let’s save the change and keep on saving it consistently. A Change is indeed an integral part of our lives, so acceptance is the key to survival. Brilliantly written post Sunita. I’ve seen a seen a few episodes of Sherlock Homes series along with my daughter. It’s great but still I’m a fan of the older one. Old habits die hard with my generation. But I do believe in change, or else life would turn out like stinking stagnant pond. 🙂

    • So nice of you Sangeetha to share your lovely thoughts and expressing your solidarity with our generation SH! Yes, change as John F Kennedy, said is “the law of life, and those who look only at the past and present, are certain to miss the future”!

  6. First of all, I can understand your obsession with the new BBC Sherlock Holmes shows. I think there excellent all round. The move from the 19th to the 21st century was at least one example of a change that I heartily approve of.
