The complicated response

Life. It’s so complicated. Right? Makes us question our simple decisions. Even the ones that we think don’t matter. What if we were to choose differently. What if we chose the chicken instead of pork or to watch cricket instead of chelsea match. How does it even affect all our judgements and in turn our life? How on earth are we supposed to know what is right to do and what is not. We can’t even decide which shirt to put on in the morning before office. We can’t decide weather to listen to Blink 182 or Black Sabbath. How on earth are we supposed to recognise the right from wrong? The ultimate truth from the ultimate remorse. The fallen with the enlightened.

So many question haunting us each day. Right? And most of it we are still wondering on ur heads even now. How can we know make sure what to even think and what to ignore and move on in life. Well, life is a complicated thing after all. Maybe we are not supposed to figure out everything after all. Maybe we will know when it’s time to know. And we will act when it’s time to act accordingly. We might just step into the someone else’s shoes and act unnaturally for a while. Try filling the eternal void with things and people who don’t belong there. But eventually someone somehow will come and rescue us. We all have someone we can rely on. May it be the dad , mom, sister, brother, lover, or the dearest of friend. But then again, what if we don’t recognise whom to rely on. Quite disturbing, isn’t it?

Freedom to Think can sometimes be contagious

Freedom to Think can sometimes be contagious

How about we don’t think of anything. The good. The bad. None of it. What then? Will we cease to exist? Will the distractions and need of ours suddenly change? Will be gather enough courage to let go? I guess we won’t. Humans by nature tend to return to the thing they want the most. Even when they don’t know that they want it. So, Let’s step back a while and reflect upon the last 2 years of our lives. What were we doing? Who were in our life? Are they still there? Who left? Whom we left? Why? Who came? Who stayed? Who cared? Who tried using us? If you can answer all the questions of those correctly, maybe your life ain’t that messed up as mine.. But let’s pretend we all are sitting on the same boat anyway. Would you tell me the answers to all of those? Or would you just ignore that and move on with what it is you were doing? Don’t ignore.. Not yet at least. We are not done yet. There still are a million and more questions unanswered. Are you curious enough to ask me to ask you to answer them? Maybe not. But you do want to know the questions. Right? That is the basic of what we have become now. We don’t listen others to understand the gravity of the situation or to understand what the person means. We simple listen to others because we need to respond. We’ve programmed our brains to respond to anything and everything coming from everything and anyone no matter if it matters or not. Because we ultimately do not think about what matters anymore. Let’s turn the page up and read again of where we started of from.. It all matters.

So, lets all take a moment to grasp the dire need of the situation and analyse what has been the most thoughtless moment of the day. You are devising a response to all that read right now. What if I told you, Scratch that off. We don’t need a reply here. All we need to think of what we are doing with our lives right now. 

I’ll give you some space to think.. Let me know what you thought.. 

Oh wait! That would be a response….. 😉

The 4th of December

run run run

run run run


Woke up early morning,
thought I heard my alarm ringing,
excitement it was that’s singing,
only one song in my head pinging.

Had a few biscuit bites,
packed away my stuff as per my might,
locked away the doors and windows tight,
walked to the bus stop in the morning light.

Waited for the bus while making plans of kol,
Called the cab when that seemed off the poll,
Bangalore traffic took on quite a toll,
Reached the airport with minutes to goal.

The counter attendant denied the boarding,
Had the convince her with my own risk taking,
Had to convince the queue that my flight was leaving,
Made it in flight only to realise how good I’m at running.

Hunger and thirst almost took my life,
In-front of me was only the Business Times,
Got stuck in between two sleeping girls,
Jeffery Archer do comes to the rescue of all of us.

Found taxi went on a two day strike,
Buses were slow and time was flying like a kite,
Reached to meet the bday girl riding the tide,
Special lunch with food and the company was a delight.

Went strolling with my best friend in EcoPark,
Such peace fell upon us with the fall of the dark,
Alas, had to leave cause of the train to embark,
But the day had made it’s unfathomable mark.

The last ride of the day slowly chatted on,
Asked the cabbie to do me a favour and step on,
Ran across the station to the platform and jumped on,
Almost missed yet again as I ran on.

Life at 23

I guess writing is now a quarterly thing. Believe it or not, I’ve been meaning to write since a long time now. Just never got through with the lazy no-time cursing part and to the actual writing part. Well, here I am.

Life Awaits you on the other side

Life Awaits

 

But now that I’m here, I’m not sure what exactly to write. But I guess I’ll write something that’s been stuck in my head since a long time now. “What am I doing? Who am I doing it for? What’s my purpose?” Maybe some of you can relate to such questions. Maybe not. Either way, you are at a stage of your life where you have some important decisions in your life. Some decisions that you might not be sure about yourself yet. But you’ve made them nonetheless. How asking yourself now, “How many people actually benefitted from that decision? And has it really, no I mean Has it REALLY made the change in your life that you were expecting? Are you happy about the decision?”

Too many questions. But then life’s one big question in itself. Anyways, what does a normal 23 year old guy do? Well, I wouldn’t know. People call me weird anyway. And I don’t blame them. But I’ve been trying to figure out what exactly does a 23 year old guy do anyway. I left my old job at ProvenLogic. Joined Opinio couple of months ago. Got my first Bike. And drove 250+ kms straight up on one side of the trip. The return, we of course found a shortcut. The journey is yet another story. 😉 Wait for it fellas!! Got my dream phone. Yes, the iPhone 6s at a price where everyone laughed at me. Literally. But who cares. Nobody plans on future saving at 23 anyway. Though my bank manager keeps telling me otherwise as she tries to lure me in different schemes of investments. Lol!

And so, that’s what I’ve been upto during my last few months. Lately, I’ve been bored and running out of things to do. Or maybe too many to do at once. And then none to do at times. Life’s been irregular. And my plans seem to have ditched me. 😛 Well, what can you expect from someone who dedicatedly lives the No-Shave November. Lol! My office mates literally freaked out when I did shave. And yes, So, I broke the November record. But this time I went on till more than a month. Now, that’s a new record! Achievement Unlocked! 😀 Ok, I’ll send someone to that prize for me. In the meantime, I went to my first rock concert. Slash was in town and I had to see him. (Thanks to a friend of mine who informed me though). And glad that I went. Been a long time since I spent any time for myself. And I loved it.

Well, Ya’ll Good folks who are still reading my boring life, here’s a good thing that I learnt. Life lesson learnt number #whocares : “Heart comes first. Live with no regrets or don’t live at all!”

 

Cheers Mate!
