Royalty was traditionally related to monarchy and was seen as a thing for respect and admiration. The reason royals were so admired were the qualities they possessed. As time progressed the definition of royalty broadened; as to something or someone who has done tremendous amount of work in a particular field that people started considering them as a royal in their fields. But let me tell you the way few Indians behave like royals every day.
India is a country that has oceans of people, each people behave totally different from the other and each one of them having their own views and platitudes. Amidst the oceans are few people who live with alacrity and an ameliorating attitude to do something nice and to be helpful for others. Not only these people are the backbone to the moral structure of India but they also weave the innate fabric of civic society of India. Let’s see the list of houses that comprises of these people who are The Everyday Royal’s:
5. The House of Respect
Representing the section of people in India that still follows the regime of respect make into this house. These peoples heart are free from malicious thoughts and only think highly for the other people. Such people could be seen anywhere in India they could be seen travelling in buses where they would be the first to offer their seats to the old or handicapped persons, in restaurants where they would be the first to open the door for lady or man alike, in schools where they would be the first to stand and salute the teacher, in parades where they would be the first to stop at the sound of anthem. These people are shining lights and they seem to brighten anybody’s life just by going near them.
4. The House of Courage
Representing the section of people in India, they represent the Braveheart’s who possess equanimity and never back down from protecting the interest of other people. These people’s qualities are immutable; they can either work as a maverick or in a group to see justice prevails. Such people can be seen in courts representing the side of innocence, in public offices asking for the right to be done, near borders where they work day and night preventing insurgency, in hospitals recovering from the fight they intervened to protect a lady’s honor. These people are watchdogs and they tend to intervene when the justice is delayed because the only principle they work for is “Justice delayed is Justice Denied”.
3. The House of Erudite
Representing the section of people in India that possesses wisdom and knowledge. They are the social thinkers and the reason for the change in public opinions. They can be seen in every classroom of India trying their best to educate their students, in every house of India where they keep giving advice to their children who despise everything they say, under the fly-overs where they can be seen teaching the less privileged, in the press interviewing various personalities and asking them such thought provoking questions that even the best of politicians find a loss of word to say. They are like lighthouses and tend to guide people away from the problems.
2. The House of Philanthropy
Representing the section of people in India that believe in general concept to promote the welfare of others make into this house. Philanthropy is not every body’s cup of tea and it takes a big heart to donate to the needy and impecunious. They can be seen running various NGO’s, distributing clothes in the winter season to the footpath dwellers, supporting their house workers’ children’s education and they are also among the first to volunteer for the rescue works too. These people are angels and they tend to save people from giving up on humanity.
1. The House of Forgiveness
Representing the section of people in India that believes in forgiving the mistakes of other’s and maintaining harmony among people. They also as in fact make the smallest group among the 5 as this attribute is found in very less people. They can be found in old age of homes, smiling and still welcoming their children who had drove them there, in hospitals where they don’t file police complaint against the young boy who knocked them down because they feared that it would spoil his future, in relationships where they forgive their siblings’ outside adventures, at graveyards where they forgive gods for taking their child. They are like Sun and seem to radiate everyone’s lives by taking all the problems on themselves.
All the houses explained above have qualities that are a must have for any royalty in the world. Strange it might seem to you but there exist another house which comprises of all the other houses, a house that represents the shining diamonds of humanity, The House of Excellence, the likes of Gandhi and Mandela walk in this house and they represent the rarest individuals in our society. You won’t find them anywhere; they find you, through the news or media you would hear about the sacrifice they did or the achievements they were able to achieve. So , to say that royalty is a thing of past would be unwise, you can be a royal, I can be a royal , it’s just the day you start thinking about becoming a royal is the day these houses will open their door for you. There is a famous poem written by Lord Alfred Tennyson, that ends with a very beautiful note that says
“One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield”
