If i ask you to recall the happiness of running fast as kids, heavy rush in pulses, and breathing fast, jumping over the walls and injuries i don’t care, rugged dress, dusty shoes, smile and laugh, so fast … this is a typical childhood. Free from all obesity, physical and mental.
People think me being so obsessed with criticism and sometimes i feel so. May be in coming days i will contradict my ideas, so is happening so far. But this is fun crystallizing your thoughts in words.
This assignment is of a new kind. I am asked sometimes for my opinion over people, in the team where i work. How and what and the asking authorities tries to peep in my head, just to decide their next moves to control people, since controlling people is attributed as an act of managerial skill. I have a basic question, “How can you control something which is not in your control now”? And most of them do not understand the control system. This is equally applicable to machines and humans. This is where i think engineering as a discipline and the importance of having a good academic background. And a second question, just since i have liberty over blogs to ask, “What positive qualities do you have, which inspire people to change”?
Obesity is a characteristic of inefficient control system. Input translates to output and some residual. If the system design do not have a proper proportion of control machinery to adjust the input output ratio, the harmony of input, output and residual brings bizarre results. Obesity is one of the abnormalities.
This is same like eating habit. The desire to taste and satisfy hunger, when fueled by the food business, gives rise to the delicious pizzas, burgers and it attracts. The profit oriented industry continuously exploits the weak human vulnerability to eat more delicious, more and more. Work culture now a days do not make the input getting processed so well and results in the disfigured abnormal shapes. We call obesity. This is not only linked with the tangible, discrete items we take, however intangible desires as well.
Similarly the mental obesity starts with our growing experience in system, people and processes. We adjust ourselves and design a secure shell around, which we do not want to break. Keeping most of the times our mind discussing only people and events. The idea shower deprived field of mind develops weeds, unnecessary herbs and shrubs. This is default system behavior. Your mind is like an open field, if you will not plant flowers, weeds will grow.
These weeds are stubborn, and made strong over the times. The fencing of pride, anger and prejudice never allows external agents to cut it through and make space for healthy ideas. I see this as an obesity and is worst of its kind.
