Chaos by Pannaga Shree B S & Parthvi Jaithlia Summary
Chaos – Tales of the heart is an Anthology that comprises two parts, each dealing with a different topic. The first part portrays several takes on “Chaos” and dives into in-depth narratives of the same. The second part brings forth “Tales of the heart” – depictions in the form of words and pictures. In the former, folks describe Chaos as they see it – Societal, Mental, Psychological, Philosophical, Circumstantial, etc. in, formal, narrative, poetic, satirical, comedic, and descriptive styles. Each author’s account gives a new perspective on how Chaotic things were, are, or can be. This section of the book focuses on matters that may not always be said out loud by most people, owing to the fear of being viewed as weak or insecure. Contrary to the immediate meaning – a physical manifestation of unrest and disorder – Chaos can erupt from within a person and still stay hidden under the surface, causing the same or more damage than its physical counterpart. This emotion can exist under the façade of calm, undetected for the most part. Chaos can make or break. It can incite action and can cease it. It can be a powerful tool if one knows how to wield it. In the latter, people pour their hearts out in the form of fables, poems, and pictures. They talk about personal and social aspects of how the heart perceives things. This section of the book also renders the adage “A picture is worth a thousand words” with moments captured to perfection by budding photographers. Talking about how one’s feeling, can prove easier said than done. Societal conceptions of what should and shouldn’t be talked about can seriously maim one’s self-confidence to the point where one simply stops talking altogether. More often than not, pictures and photos are judged based on how beautiful and perfect they are rather than what they are trying to illustrate. While the former approach isn’t entirely wrong, it does, however, impose unrealistic restrictions on what “beauty” should be. The heart can be made light and airy, metaphorically speaking, provided one finds a way to lighten the load it bears.
