Me and my life 

I started this blog with only one idea in my mind. I wanted to understand what exactly is blogging and how is it done. Wait, let me make one thing very clear, that I am not at all intretsed to make money by blogging but if ever I get the opportunity to earn, I have no issue with it.

So I choose this site which made my blog page very easily. But the very next question was what will I be blogging off ? I am presently living a mediocre life in a metro city of India. Striving hard to earn livelihood for myself and my family with hardly any adventure in my life. 

I do have some hobbies, which well are not so unique but very special to me. But then writing about them will not be so exiciting. So after thinking for a while I decided to write about life in general.

Life, I know is such a common word which we use daily thousand times in our communication. Boss shouts on your colleague in front of you, you patt his/her shoulder and say “it is part of a life don’t worry. “You don’t get a seat to sit in a metro while going back home when you are tired and need the most, you smirk and say to yourself “what a life.” You follow your favourite person on Instagram/Twitter and go through his daily post and pic, envy him and show them to your friends and say “he/she is truly living a splendour life.”

Life, we all celebrate, curse , envy, blame, spend, live every moment. We do all this in our life, with our life and never ever try to understand that all this is possible for us only because we are blessed with a Life.

So here I am, and I have decided to blog about Life, it can be anybody’s life, yours, mine anybody’s. I will in my subsequent blogs try to express various forms of a human life in every aspects of society within my country and place/society I get opportunity to live in with.

Thank you and do comments whatever you feel like and kindly tolerate my typo/grammatical errors if any.

I was surprised

How unaware I have been, no I was not ignorant nor arrogant, but in the last decade of my life I was so obsessed with myself and unluckily my job also took me away from society, because of which I completely forgot some major traits of it.
I forgot that I could use them, and they were there for all of us always, but completely ignored by me
Like, I completely forgot to ask for help when you need one. Or to request someone for something which is necessary for you at that moment.
I forgot, that I could do that. It is not that I have been self-reliant till now, no it is not like that, I too needed help, but I forgot to ask someone, mostly I forgot to ask those who were around me. Rather I preferred to sulk and get angry on myself. I started blaming people and situations around me when my task or my goal was left unchecked, which maybe would have been achieved if I would have asked for help.
I could have easily asked people, organizations around me for their help, guidance, but I did nothing of that at all.
When did I realize that? Well eventually today also I was about to quit on one of my tasks, I was stuck in a situation where I had to give up one of my commitment for the other one because I was getting late. I was about to do the same, when the person sitting beside me said, “you should go and ask them for help”, and I did that and they agreed to help me and finally I ended up completing both my commitments in my planned time.
I was about to quit one of my tasks, view time constraint which I knew was not the right thing to do, but never a thought cross in my mind that I should request the other person to consider my problem.
It was a surprise to me when someone else agreed to help me in an instant. I was amazed which such a positive response and it just changed my perception of people around me.
Seriously, nowadays media, news, and social sites are exploding daily for us the monstrous nature of humans and their inhumane acts, which has somehow successfully generated fear in our mind, which ultimately refrains us from being kind and genuine with strangers we met every day.
How many of the strangers that you meet in a day smile back at you? Well, not most in my country. We have somehow lost our ability to connect with people and be social in the physical world. Yes, we are excelling in a virtual world, but that is not our true self.
To be generous, when it is not your liability, to someone who is a complete stranger for you without any expectations is our true nature. We, humans, are a social animal and we need society to survive, except, love and for validation. Instant gratification on a social site is considered a mood booster, but I think being generous, happy, and being selfless with a smile for everyone you meet in a day is a true and most effective boost of serenity for soul and mind.

Time just flies by !

Time just flies by!!

When you are sure, you have enough left for you to act,

That very moment, it ceased its existence.

When you are eager to catch up your pending jobs,

That very moment, deadline ends.

When at last you pick up your phone, to give a call,

That moment, the person on the other end blocks you after waiting for long.

When your dream ends at last, in your reverie,

That moment, opportunity gives up knocking and turns her back on you.

When at last, you choose to seek forgiveness,

That moment, time catches up with your old man, you are too late.

Alas! Time just flies by.

End the Struggle!!

Come up, why are you hiding behind your soul
What fear resides within you and since how long?
When you dared to travel so far.
Now why, you are wearing so much hesitation?
Shed it all, right here in front of me.
Leave nothing behind, for you to drag.
Pull up the sleeves and stare back hard and strong.
Let the world know at once, that you are back.

When I set my mind free

I am glad that today I have time for all this. Time to entertain both of us, but maybe one day I will be done with all this and on that day, while sitting alone at my desk, having nothing to occupy myself, maybe on that day I will set you (my mind) free and then wait for you to return, with stories, adventures, shame or joy.

I will listen patiently to all your tales like a abandoned old man who has nothing to do for. Maybe I will ask questions, maybe sometime I would like to know all in detail, or maybe I will accept your short quirk replies. All will be done as per your wish, as you know I have nothing to do or say.

But I do wonder, what will you bring back to me, when I set you free? Will you confront me with new stuff, or will you be happy to linger around my old memories? I wonder what will be his choice?

I guess, he will be comfortable in my pile of past memories, but then I don’t want that stuff. I want something new, fresh and alive. Something which will pump adrenalin in my old veins, which will make my heart weep profoundly either in pain or happiness or make me dance in joy. I want him to gift me bliss.

Questions – once again???

I have a question, in fact a lot of them.

Where can I find answers for all of them?

Lots have been written. Lots have been studied

Many answers were new and most parodied.

I understand the questions, but not the answers.

I understand my delirium, but not my mind’s grotesque caricature.

I have the need, but not the substantial purpose.

So maybe I hesitate and not look audacious.

Maybe I am thinking a lot, maybe not.

Maybe everyone around me, expect me, have lost the plot.

This uneasiness have gripped and consumed me for a while.

Every moment I live, I look, I stare and I have lost my smile.

When and how long, I don’t know yet.

But maybe one day, very soon I will get.

All the answers, all the replies and all the justifications.

I may then, close my eyes and renounce my emanation.

IN MY WORLD

Today is fine and so will be tomorrow,

In my dream land, it’s only happiness and no sorrow.

No don’t even think of quitting this place.

Nowhere else, you will find peace and solace.

 

Yes I made up all, on my own,

No one is stranger here, everyone is known.

Perfection have no place, neither does greed.

Everyone is judged here by their deeds.

 

When everyone around us, is running in race.

Why should we too, lets vanish without a trace.

Yes we will compete too, with zeal & enthusiasm.

But none here will be applauded for their triumph.

 

Life is all, and all is nothing.

Laugh merrily, and give up everything.

Possession, Aspiration, Competition.

All are mere, beneath your inspiration.

 

Come get inspired and create something new.

You are one among the gifted few.

Let your talent get unfold on my canvas.

Don’t just be a mere unit number on their census.
