I woke up with a hangover today. Hangover of my past life, hangover of the previous night, hangover of the transaction that takes place across two cities, it took me back by surprise. Everything was as clear as ice. I was baffled by the hyper intensity of time in Mumbai. Three days and my world started moving like a jet plane. The slow pace and the delicious comforts of being at your parent’s small town, made me take a back seat. Rejuvenation, relaxation, self-pampering, empty time at my disposal, things tend to ease out on you while holidaying.
But now am back and every second counts here. Every minute that I spend doing nothing has a cost attached to it. If I chance a back seat here, I’ll be turning my back on the millions of opportunities glaring at me to make a move, to contribute to a better world and more importantly a better me. So I tell my inner goddess to present her best self when she gets out of her bed every day, because it’s a matter of TIME and DEATH in order to achieve my greater self.

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

Sometimes things change. Not always the way you expect them to. It is surprising but its good to be surprised once in a while. It keeps you on your toes and tips you off often. Eventually you learn to balance.
Loving without communicating (read: one sided love in no commitment act, friends with benefits) is not as simple as it seems.
When you see falling relationships all around, it may come as a relief and feel like a cake walk. Don’t get delusional about this because you possibly can’y go on forever with this little set up. Love is such a strong emotion that the heat radiates in the air in the near proximity. Sooner or later your little secret does start becoming a little obvious. And believe it or not, you are then, just left with a puddle of imaginary, messed up world which exists only in the realms of your minds.
So let go of these illusions. They come with their own complications, which can be worse than just “Relationships are Complicated” crap. You have to work to make it work. I quote
‘Communication in measurable amount’ is the key for a successful journey in wonderland.
Its not always rainbows and butterflies, but compromise that gets you along… Have a safe trip! 🙂

Garjate angaare liye
Main cheer ke duniya chahti hoon
Toofano se tez dorti, dharkano ko sunanna chahti hoon
Inn bandh kamro mein saanse, barbadi ki raah hi chalti hai
Waqt paani ki tarah behta, zindagi yoon hi guzar rahi hai
Kitna hisaab, kitna paisa,
Kitna bhau iss mehnat ka?
Ped ki daali se ab kya banta hai
Phool, kaliyoh ka kon sa ghehna?
Badi company ki badi afsar bhi bano
Shaadi karke, shusheel bhi raho
Duniya toh paiso par naachti hai
Usko kamao, duniya kamao
Par main iss ubharte hue junoon ka kya karu?
Deemak ki tarah mujhe khata hua jo
Bijli ke angaare bahar phek raha hai
Inhi par main chalti rehti,
ab main udhna bhi chahti hoon.

Walking through the different shades of rainbow
I walk out one realm of emotion
A phase which I do not regret
I feel more confident of myself
Am looking to build myself
By each n each piece that I shall now collect
The past feels like a trance
Been there, felt that
That’s all that can be said
The coma, I have recovered from
It all is a new experience in itself
A new perspective
Yet so many unsolved puzzles left
All roads shall lead to one door
I need to figure out my steps

Dilli ki galiyo mein main chalti chali
Rikshe ke kandho ka sahara le
Ittak Uttak nazre ghuma
inn nazaaro ko ganne jaise choosti chali
Dheemi dheemi chalti gaadi
peeche se horn bajati hai
Par kya kare, riksha bhaiya bhi toh aadmi hai!
Nazuk, par majboot pairo par
Tiki roti saari hai
Maathe se paseena tapke
Sawari chalte jaani hai
Ma, bhain ki gaali deta
Bigre hue baap ka bigra hua beta
Mere rikshe waale ko dhamki deta
Par kya kare ye mamuli bechara
Ek kapda, Riksha-makaan
Beti, biwi, gaon ke pehchan
Bori bistra pasaare aa gaya dilli mein paise kamane
Zindagi ka maara.
Teen pahiye, do pairo se din guzara
Kya paya isne, aur kya khoya
Ummeed aur nischaya par tike, mera rikshe waala
Raaton na soya
Raaton na soya.
