A Quiet Saturday Morning

Image
Mumbai or New York, everyone is running after something. Something varies from person to person and time to time. No one has the time to enjoy the sunshine falling on their shoulders or the free birds flying in the sky. That's what life does to you for 5 days a week, and gives you a buffer of 2 days to take things slowly.

Saturday morning is the only time when you will find Mumbai at peace. No one is in hurry, roads are not over occupied with vehicles and you can cross roads without looking at the green signal to walk. No queues to buy anything, no fear to loose your wallet or mobiles. You have plenty of time to have a tea and gaze at the dustbin observing movements of crows, cats and dogs who are eating from left overs without fighting with each other, even they are at peace. Walking alone, with these things in my mind, made me happy and cheerful. Feeling these small little things, getting out of the air conditioned offices and refueling yourself back to struggle is the journey …

A letter to my Mom

Hi Maa,

How are you? I know you don't like it without me, I know you don't like it when you don't see me around, I know you feel lonely when you don't cook food for me and I know you don't like it this way, everything going by so fast and your kids growing up so quickly. Still I expect you to be happy, I am a fool right, and I dare ask you, how are you when I know how you live each day by yourself without your kids. You use to carry me on your back and make food for the family, you use to wait for me everyday after I returned from school and you use to make me eat food with your own hands even though grandma used to scold you for doing so. I know its not easy when everyone asks you to be strong and let your kids go away and let them make their career.

Time passes by pretty quickly, and you know what is known to be the best time, when you don't know when the time passed by. 21 years passed by so quickly sleeping in your lap mother. I still remember the days whe…

What we want from our life is a question which is not easy to answer. Some times you think you know the answer to it, but the next moment you realize that you were wrong. There are certain main stream answers to this question like live each moment, don't plan for the future and everything will turn out to be good, does this actually happen except for a handful of people who were lucky enough that their random choice gifted them the taste of success. Other main stream things which we do, is we make ourselves happy with what we get, and then its easy to say, that yeah life turned out to be good, some way or the other. I often ask myself, which among the two paths will give me more happiness, the planned destination or an unplanned one, but I still don't have a clear cut answer to this simple question. I am not the hater of main stream notions, but I don't wish to follow them even, if I don't want to.
Let me argue both sides of the it, with the thoughts that have flooded…

A "Different" Life

Image
I have been living a new life since the past 2 weeks now. My new life can be best described by this sentence, "Different but still all the same". Its difficult to describe how one feels in a new city, but I will give it a try and make an effort to reach all the people who have begun a new life at some point in their lives.

Past has been good, but its gone now, and I am on my way to build some new past.

The first few days, when we walk alone, when we look here and there, we observe people, we try to find small things that can make us smile, we find people to whom we can give some happiness, but we don't find this to be easy. I, you, we all like to be alone when we look at loneliness from a distance, but we realize it later that it was better to look at it from a distance only. We crave to be alone when we are with friends and family, we take them for granted and don't realize their importance. Just ask yourself, haven't you been angry now and then on your parent…

This too shall pass....Leaving with a smile :)

Everything passes, whether it is good or bad it passes, and so does my college life. The memory of the first day of my college i.e. 19th July 2010 is so fresh in my mind that I am not able to believe that 3.5 years passed by so fast. This post should have been completed many days back, but at that time I was more sentimental and emotional than I had ever been in my life, and so I was not in a condition to express my emotions and feelings. But today, that has also passed and so have my emotions, they have vanished and I have accepted my defeat against time. I can't stop it from moving ahead, I can't ask it to freeze because I am loving it now, I can't and no one else has ever been able to. Time drags us with itself, whether we want to or not, and that's the best part, sometimes we think we have a choice but actually we don't. We can yell at this nature of time but it helps us to get over our miseries even, so everything has its pros and cons. This blog is not to di…
