Youth and Truth – a rocking combination!

Labeled “Youth and Truth”, this month's "In Conversation with the Mystic" saw Sadhguru converse with the popular young actor Siddharth on a variety of subjects.

Yet another installment of the series “In Conversation with the Mystic” was held in Hyderabad last week on 10th January at Hitex Exhibition Center, Madhapur. Labeled “Youth and Truth”, the event saw Sadhguru converse with the popular young actor Siddharth on a variety of subjects.

Even as they began, Siddharth told the audience that given the fascinating conversation he and Sadhguru had shared in the car on their way there, he was doubtful they could recapture even 10% of it. However, their rapport was delightfully effervescent, and the two speakers teased and ribbed each other all through the evening.

Faithfully taking up his role as a representative of “youth”, Siddharth started off by asking Sadhguru if anger could be used to make a difference in society. Sadhguru responded by saying, “Anger is not a virtue, it is a certain degradation of a human being… To be in rage, you don’t have to be conscious. To remain out of rage, you have to be conscious. Once you’re conscious, you’re inclusive. Once you’re inclusive, you’re a solution.”

Among a series of unusual questions, Siddharth wanted to know if Sadhguru was a romantic, to which Sadhguru’s response was “I'm romancing the whole universe.”

The topics of conversation moved to Sadhguru’s experience on Chamundi Hill, violence in society and the gun culture, the culture of protest currently rife in India and education. Talking of raising a new generation, Sadhguru joked that it’s easier to find a nuclear scientist in our country than a carpenter. He said: “If you do not skill India, you kill India.”

With the time running out, Siddharth fired his final salvo. Preparing the audience that this was going to be a very important question, he asked: “How does the Indian cricket team become better?” At this, Sadhguru flung his head back in laughter and then responded: “Give them to me… for three weeks.”

Well, i felt the questions were not up to the mark. Well he could have prepared well and asked some good questions. The last question was totally ridiculous, i felt it was kind of insulting.

When I'm out of regular Sadhana, I go awry; otherwise I'm aware and the best results in every sphere of life. The need for any advice is then eliminated. But a recent incident made me recall an old memory of a TTE(Travelling Ticket Examiner) of Indian Railways. Nowadays whenever anger arises, 'm pushed into that memory first. A person without a proper ticket had boarded the train and insisted that he be issued a ticket then with any fine. But, the TTE clearly stated that nothing could be done, as all seats were reserved and that there had been no cancellations. The man was advised to get down at the next station. Once the TTE left the scene, the man found some space to hide himself. In a while, he was caught. With a raised voice, the man started off with an argument. But the TTE sounded stern, and was sure of his stand. And there was no hint of anger in his voice. That was amazing. I don't remember what happened at the end, yet can't forget the TTE's absolutely awesome personality. I was just bowled over!

Youth grows up learning from mistakes and new experiences. But when it voices against any wrongdoing of its elders, its advised to shut up and behave as "youth". Its painful to witness such things.
