Sentimental Fool - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Most intelligent people are considered as sentimental fool
Think too much from different angle and don’t take it cool
Boys or girls are judged best from their initial days in school
Come together at different level but drawn from same pool

Is this so because God has made us little intelligent
Do we consider ourselves as super human or agent?
Why do we take everything from different prospective?
Put extra efforts in solving the problem by being too active

Animals too have mind but not that of human being
They do act, react and behave in no manner like thing
Here it comes to act as difference with fertile mind
Some fine blend of people act funny to look unkind

Mind goes in a direction which is totally unwarranted
Don’t think it positive when actually required and wanted
They find themselves in awkward position and shunted
They remain confined and their move is always blunted

After all it is human being tendency to act or behave
They will think at length difference between have-not’s and have
Unnecessary conclusions and prolonged debate
Simple bogey raised and novel methods to combat

This doesn’t find favor with common people or man
They too have common sense and all capacity as human
Nothing prevents them from being turning into lukewarm
Intelligentsia loose the sympathy and relation doesn’t remain warm

They have their own novel ideas which doesn’t attract
They remain aloof and don’t come into contact or react
It is secluded environment for then which forbade to interact
This is how they have come into being and is simple fact

May be it is possible they have super human mind too
Many ordinary people may not have vision to look through
They will find it extremely difficult to grasp the views
To some it will be simply unbearable and find favor with only few

Their contribution in some of the fields have been unique
They have suffered so much from their own critics
It is strong resolve on their part to sail through with wisdom
Anything could have been nightmare and result of course seldom

Scientists, doctors and researchers fall in this special category
They have different approach and goal to pursue with philosophy
It is their natural talent that has brought us to the new era
Definitely they deserve our sympathy little care extra

Let us be not be that selfish to term them sentimental fool
They are powerful instrument, medium or tool
It is, however, we are all in the same boat
It is fine oratory, example or beautiful quote

    as i'd search about the meaning of FOOL...
    this definition came out:

    A person with a talent or enthusiasm for a certain activity
    http: //education.yahoo.com/reference/dictionary/entry/fool

    a person especially devoted to or skilled in some activity
    http: //www.yourdictionary.com/fool

    i think, the poet used this meaning with which he reffered to the scientist, doctors, etc..

    the poet is intelligent.....
    the title can make you ponder...

    But emotions will always come with sentiments so long we humans will have urine with stool.They always come together.No person or prophet can deny that.Emotions came for people like Ishani Patel and Sabrina Shah from Bhujin Gujarat who suffered earthquake losses, loss of parents, loss of house and identity and relief funds eaten up by Delhi people and faulty statesmen only opened their pathways to prostitution-one in Calcutta and other in England.One of them got married to an english for british passport but again her customer service continued coz' relationships in the West come with very transitory expiry date or if not-without any bliss of happiness.
    Even if they have intelligence and other attributes-they are somehow unlucky to use them same as Gandhiiji who failed to use his degree in law.Only the latter smiles for those two girls in indian currencies or denominations but i think they can never.Same goes for me.I did something else but today i am something else at someplace else.

    Then we are all sentimental fools.Sentiment for people who lose something due to calamity or being poor will always be there.Rich will be like the mirror to tame and laugh at them thinking they are less intelligent.But reality is something else.It will bite everyone in everyone's defined time lest we laugh and cry for ourselves or at the cost of others.
