Many of you might have already read Iliad by Homer, one of the greatest Epic of all time. The more I try to decipher it, the more I get determined in my belief that the War of Troy was not just a war between the rulers of Troy and Agamemnon and his fellows. It was not just the grudge for a lost wife or the wrath for the loss of a brother. It was something more than this. Something behind the veils, it was a war of Gods to prove their superiority over each other. Be it Venus’s conspiracy to fuel the war or Minerva’s partiality towards her beloved son.
All the things said the above paragraph may sound far fetched or illogical to you but associating the mythical saga to current age of super powers that we live in you will perhaps get a better idea and the real intention behind the first paragraph of this article.
Who is God? He is the Almighty whose will is supreme. Every God has his following minion gods with a certain level of influence generally less than that of the almighty God. However, under the course of time, the minion god’s influence over mankind increases and then these minion gods start placing their bets for the position of the Almighty God. And thus begins the Clash of Titans AKA the War of Gods. Now being god makes you a public figure and you can’t simply come all out and display animosity. Hence what they do is they fuel a war amongst their followers and cold war among themselves. And the followers of gods who fight (Unknowingly of the intentions of their deities) are called the TOYS OF COLD-WAR.
My rather unconventional way of putting things may deem myself a nut head in your eyes but I will like to make it a bit easier now. Let’s try to understand all these things in modern context.
Mid 90s there were 2 gods in this world, preachers of 2 religions namely Capitalism and Socialism and Gods being USA and USSR. These gods gained enormous following. Capitalism which was a quick fire way to progress attracted progressive economies and Socialism which boasted economical equality was adhered by the low risk and equality oriented economies.
But the most common problem of the divine world arises, who was supreme the patron of capitalism, USA or the forerunner of Socialism, USSR? To prove their superiority the gods took up the easy way of showing a miracle to fascinate people
• Sending Citizens to space (Unseen kingdom)
• Wonders of developed world
• Unseen luxuries
And many more but One did and the other followed and vice versa this display was leading nowhere and hence no consensus on superiority could be reached. And then the Gods shifted to the final resort: Using their TOYS OF WAR, their followers to display the superiority over the others and hence began the unforgettable Cold war Era.
• Cuban Civil war
o Civilians backed by USA
o The dictator Backed by USSR
Winner of the battle USSR
• Angolan Civil War
o Civilians backed by USA
o Government Backed by USSR
• Korea Issue
• Afghanistan Civil War: This time god himself jumped into the war and supported the minion from the back and was eventually successful in splitting and breaching the defence of USSR and thus finally resulting in the fragmentation of USSR. And hence ended the First Cold war that mankind witnessed with GOD USA coming out victorious.
PS: These days a few minions (India and China) have risen again and both have gained good enough fellowship. However they have not reached the pedestal of GOD but are certainly heading in that direction. And this has caught the eye of God, who as the history suggests, won’t let this happen easily. This seems like the beginning of another COLD WAR and who knows who will be the TOY OF COLD WAR. This time, it seems like Taiwan and Pakistan has both booked this position and many more seem to follow.
