Perspective my friends is what makes all the damn difference in the world. It is this wonderful word that defines as thus –

– the state of one’s ideas, the facts known to one, etc., in having a meaningful interrelationship usage: You have to live here a few years to see local conditions in perspective.

– the faculty of seeing all the relevant data in a meaningful relationship usage: Your data is admirably detailed but it lacks perspective.

Is Raj T right in saying stuff that amounts to asserting that Mumbai is for Maharashtrians only while marginalizing the lakhs (or is it millions) of the other people who live there and have lived there for generations now? Is Aamir Khan right in saying that all other film awards in the country except the National Awards are doctored and don’t deserve the attention they get? Was Mohammed Ali right in declaring himself the “greatest” after beating Sonny Liston all those long years ago? Am I right in believing that this damn boring post could actually be interesting enough for somebody to recommend it to someone else?

All of the above questions could be easily answered if we understood the damn perspective of the respective people. If we could understand Raj T, Aamir Khan, Mohammed Ali, or anybody else well enough to understand their way of looking at things, their points of view, their perspectives, then wouldn’t life be all that more easier.

I mean, we have enough worries and issues in life already, what with global warming, stock market crashes, sub-prime mortgage woes, high mobile bills of the missus, high levels of cholestrol (not helped by the Double ka meetha dessert at lunch), that we have to worry about others’ perspectives on things. We should have an inherent ability wherein we should be able to clearly understand why each person says or does what he says or does.

But then, isn’t it precisely this lack of perspective that makes us humans interesting enough to be social with each other? Hmm, if all of us completely understood what each other was thinking or doing, wouldn’t life be boring? It would completely obviate the need for having blogs like this one to share each others’ views and thoughts on things.

Damn, this Scott Adams post on his Dilbert blog which diverted my mind in this direction. Damn, I wish I understood what he was talking about when he said “When you do a push-up, are you really pushing yourself up, or are you shoving the universe away?”
