Escaping The Dark Reality

Escaping The Dark Reality

I’m sorry. This isn’t a story of sunshine or stardust. This is a story of some new moon night. When the stars are shadowed by clouds and it’s about to rain. And it seems like it might just rain forever…

It’s dark.

Maybe it’s not even real.

Maybe you’re seeing things.

Closing your eyes to believe there is nothing worth seeing anymore. Maybe you’ve shut your ears so you don’t hear your friends calling. Maybe this is your choice and it is on you. Maybe you’ve made your bed and now you lie on it.

Do you know what went wrong? How did your nightmares creep it’s way into your reality? Since when did everything you imagine start getting real. And why is that all you imagined so far was cruel to yourself…

Quotient of Irrelevant Happiness

So.. What’s up?

Nothing much?

Well, same here…

.

Its been a long time since I last wrote and to be more precise since I last completed writing something. Because as a matter of fact, I have 2 ‘Untitled’ posts that I have been working on since looooong!

   Untitled

See this? June! And I have not yet been able to complete it. Have I been busy? Well, I don’t know. Have I lost interest in writing? Nooooo, I don’t think so.

I think its because I am finding it more and more difficult to correctly express myself nowadays. The moment you realise that there would be eyeballs reading this very story of yours, staring… judging your intellect by your grammar 😛 , it gets under your skin… sometimes at least for sure. The other times, it’s the best motivation to write. What more does an artist want than some patient audience? (more…)

RoadsNotTaken

Zillion Roads Not Taken

Some deserve, some don’t.

Some get, some don’t.

Some try, while some don’t.

    – Random thoughts

So you only live once. What you do with this one life is the big question. A question, the answer of which unfolds slower than seasons changing but faster than bullets racing. What do you dream of? Or what have you dreamt so far? And did you get what you dreamt of?

Ask a kid and he wants to be an astronaut, a pilot, a scientist. Ask a B.Tech student and he has no answer. Sometimes I wonder what went between “I have so many life career options” and “I’m an engineering student”.. What I mean to say is that there was supposed to be some time for us to choose what we wanted to be, and I think somewhere, we just slept through the time and followed the wind. 20 years of life and most of us didn’t exactly find the right road to follow. Well, some did.. (more…)

Procrastination

“Not today.”

– Almost every human

Procrastination is not what it seems. You would say its the tendency to delay things. It is, right? Yes. What you would not say is that procrastination isn’t just about delaying things, delaying your work or judgments, its about ignoring your life.

We sometimes ignore the small things in our lives that make us human. The mistakes we make, all the wrong calls, all the incomplete sentences, all the dreams we never fulfilled, life is full of things we delay. We delay them beyond a point where their existence becomes a question.

Like me, I wanted to write a story on Maggi and how someone like me misses it. But voila! Maggi is back already! How do you write a song on separation when you are back together?.. You don’t! (more…)

Not There Yet

Very complicated.

Ask me, when it comes to making decisions in your life, there are times that make you think too much to come to the right decision. And then there are those times when you don’t think at all and make the right decision. And then there are those, when you overthink a situation and lose the ‘right’ time.

Not that life is meant to be simple.. because it isn’t. Life is full of those turns that you make because you have to in order to reach your destiny or because you need to or because someone else did. Maybe because someone leads you there. You never know how influencing people can be. You like it. You regret it. You want to forget it. You want to remember it. And sometimes you just don’t know what is wrong with your life! But you still take the turn. I would.

Years

An Year Has Gone, An Year To Go

4th June 2014, that’s today. 4th June 2013, that was last year. Somewhere, somehow, something may have happened that day in my life, in everyone’s life. I remember the first rains in Ahmedabad last year which stuck thunder at about 9 PM on a day which I have not forgotten yet, maybe time will fade my memories but I’ll type it before it fades off…

Last year, the sun was as bright as it is today, though theoretically the degrees were lower. The moon was as hidden as today, just because there wasn’t much time in our busy lives to gaze at it. Yes it still exists, shining all over us. Last year, I was at my home, today, I am again at my home, well actually I have always been at my home. Last year, I used to message my friends on Facebook, this year is no different.

Track

A 400m Race With Life

It was Thursday, 16th Jan 2014.

An ordinary thursday to start with, but an extra-ordinary one to end with…

It was the day of basketball selections for our branch team. The funny thing is, I decided to give it a try, even though all I had in the field of basketball was an astoundingly long on-field experience of … just 1 day.

Yup. just 1 day ago, I touched the ball and then there I was, trying to hit the basket while running in the field, surrounded by lots of expert eyes aiming at my mistakes while I aim for.. failure. OK OK. I was no average player and so I couldn’t make it to the team, but anyways I reminded myself of the fact that this was the first and last time in my life that I was ever going to try for fresher’s basketball team.

I guess you can be a fresher only once a lifetime 😛 unless you repeat the year or something which was surely not application to my case!

Whether I pass or fail, is not what I think about before trying something new. But yes, I do think about possibilities, about my interests, and I am sure from the next time I’ll think of many more things. Thanks to the 400m track I and my friend decided to have a race on…

NewYear

2013… And Here We Are

When I started uploading this pic, Facebook asked me to say something about this pic… So here we go!

2013 – Just another year according to the Gregorian calendar they say. And its about to end they say.

Well, I guess its really 31st December isn’t it? And people all over are celebrating the day as the last day of the 365 day cycle… waiting eagerly for the next day to come with fresh new resolutions and a fresh new list of future expectations and dreams to fulfill.

Just like this year, I had dreams to fulfill last year too…

But what destiny chooses for a person is superior to his own dreams and wishes..

NewYear

This year I got to learn that the importance of something can be understood better when you lose it. This year, I learnt that the only great thing about 12th standard marks was to get me to the college I am in right now and what turned out to be more important were my old school day habits that are still with me – respecting others, being humble and honest.

I still try my best to preserve the child in me…

I did’t regret remaining awake till 12 PM on my b’day making silent wishes that I get those last special b’day wishes because what I learnt that day was going to be with me for every other b’day I ever see in my life..

This year I learnt that friendship can’t be judged by a friend’s memory.. whether they remember your birthday or not is not what matters, what matters is that however bad their memory may be, they do know its importance in your life and they do mind making it special.

This year, 4th June wasn’t just the first time rains landed on Ahmedabad, but also a remarkable and memorable day or I should say night for me. Well, it seems to me that my life is connected directly with rains in some way or the other 😛

What happened that day? Well, that’s another secret which is best untold.

This year has been more of a negative experience for me but I won’t complain about it because I know I have got many good experiences and rewards too this year.

It seems to me that the goal to happiness is to neglect every negative element and keep looking the good. How long? Till you are finally broken into pieces and then you gather the pieces once again, smile at the devil and keep looking for good once again…

New land, new journey, fading away of old universe, this is what almost everyone of the ’95 or ’96 batch would have experienced with the concept of college brought to them. As I write this post, I am thinking of what my best of school friends would be doing now… And I am clueless…

Time to make a phone call I guess? Me too..

Friendship

After walking long further on the roads, we all would have faced choices, and I too.. Maybe a few correct choices, maybe a few wrong ones. Mistakes make a man perfect I say.

This year… maybe it was different than 2012.. or maybe it wasn’t.. What’s in a year anyways? Good! Bad! Extremely bad?! Wonder! And what not!

This year… after having taught so many new real life algebra and geometry methods, has finally made way for the next year to teach some more calculus!?

This year… finally ends and here we are! From the different corners of the world, people look into the different corners of their hearts, looking for the bad inside to throw out, looking for the good to remember, looking for the traces of past that are worth a memory, looking out for what the crackers of midnight might bring to you.. tomorrow.. tomorrow when the sun of 1st January 2014 would shine brighter than any day, a world, an year that awaits you there.. tomorrow…

I hope you’re ready for the future, for tomorrow..

Happy New Year…
