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.

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.

It takes a thought to make a word and it takes a word to make an action!!

A light is born.
The candle ignites.
A smile spreads.
The moon glows.
The baby chuckles.
Love is born.
The light struggles.
The candle flickers.
The clouds come.
It rains tears.
Courage is persistent.
An inspiration triggers it.
A breathtaking scene.
An angle is discovered.
Midst all the ruffle.
Success is painted..
( When we were little children, everyone used to keep asking us this one question all the time. “Beta, what do you wish to become once you grow up?” and innocent as we were back then from all the intricacies of its answer, we always had a sweet and simple answer ready. But then as keep growing older, our answer gets molded according to the ‘realities’ of the world around us.
Do we actually discover ourselves? Do we manage to adhere to our ‘inner calling’ as they call it? I have heard that people often have their self discovery at a very latter stage in their lives. Sometimes at times when either life could’nt have been perfect for them or worse phrase of their existence. Suddenly that one moment is there when you know exactly what you gotta do with yourself. But when that moment delays, it comes at a time when its too late to look back, to amend.
So, with many of us, this eureka moment fails to take place when we need it the most. When the so called turning point comes in our life, we are just clueless about what to do. The junction where our one decision is going to dictate the rest of your life, seems to be the ‘be all and the end all’.
This is exactly what I, and am sure many of my counterparts,were experiencing when the terror of college admissions was on our muddled heads. Some get it easy and some, through the hard way. But we have to admit that we are lucky enough to find ourselves at least somewhere by the end of it. But should the misery end here? Or does it? Is getting a decent college admission, or job our ultimate motive?
If Steve Jobs, Shakespeare, Ambani, wouldn’t have faced difficulty finishing their formal education, I wonder how things would be today? All our lives the search should be on and that is what helps us grow. We learn through the mistakes. The tough times make our success. Whether you like it or not. The fact is that perfection is boring. We need challenges to keep us going. If everything carries on happily ever after, then there will be no space for anything better. You gotta push yourself out of your comfort pack once in a while, only to get a better package altogether! Life is good, but it can always be better!!
