do I code?

Is it just Leonardo Da Vinci (from Vinci), or Dan Brown, or it's me (and my group) who tried decode the fickle mystery of time? I finally got a chance to go for the movie and to grasp why there is so much flurry about this movie. Or, the book for that matter. Now, I feel it is a good time to grab the book and decode what is already decoded.

So what do you learn after watching this movie? It is, to save the descendants of Jesus and Mary Magdalene, churches buried the truth that Jesus was married. And the spoken words from the perfectionist that Leonardo, with a twist, tried to bring out the truth through 'The Last Supper'. One interesting thing that came out, or what I interpreted, was that it was to save Mary Magdalene's life that Jesus was called God, when he was just a normal man. Churches wanted the chaotic world to have faith in the powers of the Church so as to make it more powerful and have a final word. It seems like an epic that was written behind the closed doors of the Churches with a tactic in mind - you have more followers, you have more power.

I must say that the director made a decent effort to make the audience glued to their seats till the last moment. Without a single Sine-Sound wave, the audience tried to grasp every iota of information delivered. And I am sure that noone got out displeased. To me, it was a nice movie, which gave a fine blow and made cerebrum deliver fast and relate one dialogue to another, with the history that is already stored. I might go for the movie again to make sure that I didn't miss any detail that it expected to convey. There is something about these kind of movies that you feel and interpret differently each time you watch them. In fact, I always get a new though each time I watch Matrix.

Now, how is it linked to me and my group? This is the exact discussion that I have had with my friends - before Dan Brown's book hit the shelfs. The discussion ran around the point that it is quite possible that Brahmins in India wanted to be the most respectful sect of all and needed followers from the whole community. The conspiracy could have led to writing scriptures quoting the existence of God. All the epics could have just been farce, but have been potrayed as God'ly. Who else can prove the existence of the Gods/demiGods, but the faith. A faith led to another and found a place in mythology. And, I believe, it wasn't that difficult for the only educated sect, that is, the Brahmins. Had Kshatriyas, Vaisyas had there own way, the Brahmins would have been extripated from their existence.

But, in the end, it is the faith that makes you to believe an epic or a story. A feeble being needed someone to ask for help when everything else failed. Or, it is just that we wanted someone as a scapegoat. In any case, howevermuch we try, we can't afface the faith that is deeply rooted in our very existence.

Whatever be the truth, each one of us call to someone for an answer, when everything else seems dark.
