Of Old Songs And New People

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

– “In my life”, The Beatles.

How do I begin this one.. Hmm.. Sometimes the most difficult step one has to take is the first one. Like literally, while your age is still counted in months and when you don’t have enough words in your vocabulary yet, that’s the most difficult step right? To get up and start walking. And the day we start walking is the day our elders realize, “The kid has potential ha.” And then it just never stops. Did you think of *that* when you were learning how to take your first step? Nah, you were more like “Yay, watch me fall on my face”.

And that’s life.

Much of life is short term. And as┬áJohn Maynard Keynes said, “In the long run, we’re all dead”. Well he probably meant to infer something about economics of the world and stuff but we can use a fancy quote anywhere ­čśŤ (more…)

Today is about someone.

I didn’t say “Today, it’s about someone” you see.

I didn’t say I am gonna ‘write this story’┬áabout someone you see. There’s a thin line of difference between writing a story about someone and writing about someone.. writing for someone…

And a person is only as good as you think they are :) So imagine the best you can… and this person would be better to me.┬áWill┬áI be exaggerating? Yes I will be. But let it be this way, won’t you? If I have to make a person, I might as well make the best living thing ­čśë (more…)

Why People Leave

Understanding And Accepting – Why People Leave

2 days back, my 6th semester exams got over. It felt more like a relief from the fast (really really fast :P) semester that we had this time. It was almost like I remember the first day of the semester like it was yesterday.

Obviously, my brain will take some time to adjust to the fact that the semester is indeed over and I have no more exams to go, no more studying the same subjects and no more college visits for the time being.

What’s more interesting is that I still get up some┬ánights, check the time in my┬ácell phone (my cell phone does have a clock which nowadays is the primary reason for me to use a cell phone in the first place.. apart from┬áreceiving some telemarketing SMS and calls which consume most of my ringtone “consumption” and the occasional need to call a friend maybe and some rare cases when I receive genuine phone calls.. I am bad at talking so I avoid calling anyone whatsoever. Whatsapp forever ­čśŤ Wow that was a large bracket text..) and still wonder if I had completed all of my homework for the day or calculate the time I still have that I can sleep before the alarm rings.. only to realize that there are no alarms now and no homework to do.

Ah the joy :)

That is still something we can happily adjust to. (more…)
