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.



It is convenient to say no,
Rather than saying yes and sticking till end with your commitment.
It is convenient to be atheist,
Rather than believing in God and seeking hard your enlightenment.
It is convenient to be a hypocrite,
Rather than practicing what we arrogantly preach.
It is convenience, that we

seek and cherish,

Rather than facing the brutal, harsh truth.

Fancy being a Child again?? 

Choice to do what we have to do in a life. Choice to be with whom we love, choice to have what we like. Having choices at every moment of life, won’t it be a ideal life?? 

Well today as a grown up, we do have to choose among our options at every stage of life, some we do it consciously and some sub consciously, but most of the time we choose, not what we want, but what we think is the best for us at that moment. At least  it happens with most of them in my country. 

The freedom to choose what we loved, which a baby child has is Surreal and fascinates me a lot. Yes, a baby child is innocent, gorgeous, and sometime behaves insanely too. But the marvelous advantage of being a child is most of the time you get what you want, because your choice is stated firmly and approved most of the time. 

A simple smile or a loud wail of cry states very profoundly what they want and what they don’t want. It is very simple and easy for them. 

Wish we could do the same as a grown  up and we too had someone to fulfill our choices. 

Eg : You don’t want to face your boos today, simply start weeping when he summons you. He will understand your true feeling without getting offended,  off course. 

Easy, simple. But is it soo??? 

Is Mankind Sinking??? 

​“No weight is required for a man fallen in well to sink,  he will go down by his own weight. Mankind is so heavily weighed down by its  own sin,  that it has already started sinking.” 

Do I believe this,  or should I believe this? Do you guys are also made to believe this or you think too so? 

I have been asking this myself from the moment I read it in a book.  The author obviously  wrote it,  because maybe his experiences at that moment with those around him,  would have been the reason for his belief. But then is it right to judge the entire mankind,  on one or maybe a series of bad experiences. 

Yes being judgemental about everything  that is happening in our life,  is the most common habit of everyone nowadays.  We humans have inherited it so wisely that sub consciously we are judging everyone and everything around us. Try it,  we cannot practice being non judgemental for even a hour continuously. Well I don’t know about you guys but I find it very difficult  to do so. 

The writer who made this statement mentioned above,  judged the entire mankind without a hesitation and he questioned  the existence  of our species on this planet. 

We, who have, over so many years evolved from Homosapien to the modern Human being of present era. Our kind has been able to survive and flourish  with ease and comfort,  thanks to our developed nervous system. 

Yes in our struggle to survive and develop our self in every dimensions of life,  we mankind did commit some,  in fact many unpardonable sins with everyone consent. Yes it was done with every one consent because we felt that was necessary  for us at that time for our survival and our comfort. 

Our sins are multiplying everyday and we are responsible  for it, but the question is,  when are we going to realize it? 

When are we going to learn differentiating  between our necessities  and requirements? 

When are we going to stop exploiting every living being and every resources  available on Mother Earth? 

When are we going to be compassionate,  kind and gentle than being angry,  arrogant and evil? 

When are we going to be humble an peace loving species than being war lovers and religion preachers? 

I have not lost faith in our kind yet and I believe even God has not yet given up on us. If he would have,  then everything  would have been ceased till now. No flower would have blossomed in gardens,  no fruit would have grown on trees,  no women womb would have been blessed  with a life. 

Comments most welcome!!!

Emotional  Needs 

​What are the basic need of we humans? Food,  shelter and clothing right,  this is what we have been taught  and this is what we think too.  Now what do we humans do post completion  of this essential requirements,  where  do we set our eye after that? What do we humans aspire the most after our basic needs? 

Is it our physical needs,  emotional  needs or the comfort of our life? When we look around us,  study our society  and analyze our upbringing  in this world of ours we can say it very clearly that we have taken utmost care of our every requirements other than  the basic needs in a appropriate quantity,  except  our emotional requirements. 

The reason behind the problems of most of  educated and sophisticated  human beings, sorrow and unhappiness is the scarcity in his emotions. When we are angry,  why are we angry and on whom are we angry and for what reason??? This questions and their answers both are beyond the reach of most of us. But yes getting angry, frustrated,  pissed off on someone is so easy for us nowadays. We the privileged  people of the society today are pushing our self through this trauma which is really unnecessary and self devastating. 

When I call our self privileged one, I mean it, in fact I did that purposely because I do consider our  self  so. Most of us,  born as humans are not even able to get those basic need which we think are the must for us, and even then also they are surviving  and facing the struggle  every moment to their life. They have not been able to think beyond those basic needs,  forget everything else. 

 Life is beautiful,  we must never forget that and acknowledging it and making every moment count and living it fully without paying unnecessary  attention  to every other materialistic  aspect is the only way to fill our heart with gratitude and ambitions. Every emotion that rises in our heart, which turns our throat dry and sends cold shiver through our spine is worth expressing and feeling. We have to pay more attention to our senses,  and befriend  them because that is why we are blessed with them.  It is through them we have to see the world,  and acknowledge  its  beauty and vulnerability, forget the analytical and statistical way of gazing  at life and yes screw that practicality  funda.
