Whose problem is this ‘Aram’?

Posted by ம​கேஷ் மேல் ஜூலை 27, 2012

In Writer Indira Parthasarathy’s blog, he has posted a small writeup on Jeyamohan’s Aram Series short stories. For this I have posted a long comment on his blog. Below i have republished my comment and his reply for this.

Whose problem is this ‘Aram’? Either those who are not trying to understand the evils of the society in the failure of its system or those who are interested or faith in the existing system. Those are trying to categorize the base of the evils only under the problems of ‘Aram’.

Indian story tellers from the beginning itself, trying to analyze – the contradictions between the individuals, contradiction between an individual and the society and base of all evils – in the characters of the individuals and the decline of their moral values. But in the earlier stages of the development of societies and epistemology such an idea, itself a great advancement in the process of understanding the contradictions.

But in the later stages of the development of society, it has proven that such a simple logics fail to capture the real problems of our society, their solutions never turned as a life style in the prevailing societies. Here only we came to analyze all the way of our life through some advanced logics such as system failures, Development of society Vs. ideas, Development of society Vs. culture, etc.

Feelings of ‘Aram’ in an individual’s mind never play over or supersede the contradictions of the society and system failures. Individuals can only be allowed to live under the Terms & Conditions given by the existing societies. Those who trying to solve the issues purely on the base of ‘Aram’ is only an exception to the society, such exceptions never became a way of life anywhere around the world. This is the reality we are seen and learnt from the Life and History of mankind.

At the time, when the Aram series of short stories published in Jayamohan’s website, I have written some criticisms about the first three short stories of this series in my blog (https://naatkurippugal.wordpress.com/2011/02/11/criticismonjeyamohnshortstories/). I knew very well most of the people not agreed with my views. But my suggestion is, it should also has been taken into account as one of the alternate view. Those criticisms are all written by me as a ‘Aram’ of mine towards my society.

I agree with you. There cannot be any ethical absolutism in regard to any concept. The ultimate yardstick is how does it benefit the disadvantaged.
