The personal is political

Wednesday, November 7, 2007

When cares get you down and someone comes to pull u out of those cares...

then that's the time ur integrity can also be under challenge. What if that person holds views that you publicly differ with. Would u still express your differences despite the assistance rendered by this someone? I would. I appreciate the help, but I have my views all right. And the one approach is...

Final solution v/s dialogue mentality

I talk of dialogue between communities but feel that whatever is in my mindis the final solution when I am talking to my own colleagues. So somewhere in the course of the dialogues, I reflect this same final solution-fascist mentality. The personal is political. Our outlooks at the personal level... Sign in to see full entry.

If I am an attention-seeker at home, I begin to seek the same kind

of attention in public life. Unless of course my family recognises this trait and treats it. No, attention-seeking is not an ailment. It's natural for any human being to want attention. What is under discussion here is the undue attention-seeking. If this is not nipped in the bud, it is harmful to... Sign in to see full entry.

Compromising on the corruption of the spouse saying one can't expose him

since he's one's spouse after all, would amount to compromising on one's politics of being anti-corruption. The personal is political. What say? Sign in to see full entry.

If I believe that women have the capacity to take decisions, this belief

must translate into my politics at home in how I consider the views of women, and in what I publicly articulate are my views on the role of women in public life. There cannot be a discrepancy between the two, for it won't sound real if I tom-tom that women should have a place in public life and I... Sign in to see full entry.

Is it about reproducing one's genetic traits in political life?

No, the slogan personal is political certainly isn't that. It's about carrying one's politics from the home to the world and from the world to the home. It's about acknowledging that our decisions in what is called "personal" life are, in the end, political decisions. Sign in to see full entry.

Mr. Know-It-Alls

Perhaps the know-it-alls function that way because they had parents who admitted to no mistakes and pretended to know everything and give answers confidently to things about which they knew nothing? Don't know. Just wondering. And then there are the others who know so much but have a quiet... Sign in to see full entry.

I have a dream, a song to sing

Remembered this ABBA song. And was thinking. When I dream, is it a selfish dream. Would I want this dream materialising for the whole world? Do dreams have anything to do with perspective? Or do they not have a context? And do they come out of the blue? Or out of the novels and movies that we... Sign in to see full entry.

Politics makes strange meaning

A comment on an earlier post inspired this one. The point was: in the context that the personal IS political, does not the statement "politics makes strange bedfellows" acquire a new meaning? It would seem that it does. And it would also seem that it doesn't. Bedfellows are personal and by choice.... Sign in to see full entry.
