PRESTIGE

When coacervates landed on this planet , it is really not required to implore that they must have had their share of  fights .  Probably fact of the matter  is,  in other words ,   “to commote is an innate faculty of  all , animate , inanimate,  living and nonliving entities”.  But to our farthest antecedents , the revolution and rotation of “PRESTIGE” as the topic of row over row , might seem utterly surprising.  So , what is it about “PRESTIGE” , that has captivated us or other aforementioned entities. It seems so ravishing to certain characters that they try ingraining each and everything that has the brandname “PRESTIGIOUS” .  Annotate , this includes language also.

Many apologies to Shakespeare , for we leave no basket of words to try and tweak what is his proprietary . Though we usually fail , I also wanted to have this pleasure. So , here is my take.

“What’s in  a name , everything is in a brandname.”

Why are we on the run ?Why is it that we want our speedometer to be way ahead of whatever mythical proportions others have in their kitty?And so why  all this ruckus?Why are we so much enchanted by the prestigious college, the prestigious and coveted awards, the prestigious language. the prestigious mansion, the prestigious car, the prestigious dress up and the list is endless.

So far according to what are my personal comprehensions , I note that prestigiousness is found to be usually  associated with either riches or intellect or comparison.Why is the idea of considering prestigiousness as subjective so difficult to accept? Why do we need this scale of “comparision” to measure the level of prestigiousness we are availing.

The “why” of this essay might haunt you till the end of this essay.

The human legislature defines and divides . It defines good and bad .It defines rich and poor.It defines intellectuals and dumbs . It defines prestigious and non-prestigious. And hence it divides.And hence all this ruckus .

And so I think satisfaction is the least visited word .

Some universalistic activity  has gifted us all certain  natural resources and a brain with  a body to capture those resources.  Antiquity has it that we started with fight for these resources.A fight for resource which helps one to survive is less questionable as compared to the fight for hoarding those resources  .And prestige arises precisely with how much hoarding one has. The greater the hoarded amount the greater is prestige.

On a balancing front , it must be added that prestigious schools and prestigious colleges make prestigious individuals but what made those schools and colleges prestigious .The answer probably is  prestigious thoughts and where did these prestigious thoughts arise from ? They lie in human pulse and as is commotion our innate feature so  is prestigious cerebration.

It must therefore become incumbent for our souls to promote , to cultivate and to nurture prestigiousness in its pristine form and to stop commoting just for the sake of promotion .

Wouldnt it be preferable to live in an amphitheatre of prestige which circumscribes pride , prejudice , commotion , promotion , comparison , riches and unnecessary intellect to avail all these. Wouldnt it be preferable to soak ourselves and allow all to pour in free and pure thoughts and then weed out those unnecessary ones to build a more prestigious planet.
