We all sooner or later reach a station in life where we get bogged down with pressures of managing our past or present relationships, business/job, health, feelings of redundancy or irrelevance. I say, insert a twist in the tale…spit out the unsavoury, ignore the unwanted, begin dancing to your own tunes, wink at yourself remembering peccadilloes in Piccadilly/Pan Bazar or Police Bazar, raise a toast to yourself, and sing at the top of your voice Dr. Alban’s “It’s my life”. Let your hair down, love yourself unapologetically, and be a harmless hedonist. Cheers to the free spirit…flowing or otherwise. Live n let die*.
(*the sad feelings)
The well-meaning agencies caution us against paying child-beggars, but we wish to help them out of pity or to assuage our own guilt feelings; the mind forcefully argues against riding on the dignity and drudgery of the old rickshaw puller, but his plight tugs at the heart to allow him to earn his bread….
In situations such as these, where the heart pulls in one direction and the mind pushes in the opposite, can we, as humans, ever sit in judgment over what is right and what is wrong?
Right or wrong, in the conflict between the conscious and the conscience, I am inclined towards the latter.
Cool is Hot n Hot is Cool!
Ohhh…everyone is so cool these days…..so cool, they are hot…..and so hot, they are cool. Hot Dogs n Cool Cats or Hot Cats n Cool Dogs : ) Descartes’s soul must be desperate to rephrase “I think, therefore I am”(Cogito Ergo Sum) to “Am Cool, therefore am Hot!”. So in which state of the matter one really is? Iceberg or Lava? An existential enigma facing the humanity. And we no longer have a Camus or a Sartre : )
This is the post excerpt.
WELCOME TO MY WORDS-WORLD !
To Learn….To Unlearn,
To Know…..To Ignore,
To Remember….To Forget.
To Explore Beyond…To Search Within !
Through my blog i wish to share my thoughts about Life…….Life which is a rich canvass, a vibrant tapestry of infinite emotions n feelings having myriad colours, shades n hues…..scenes, scents n sounds…..overpowering the senses…filling the soul….drowning the very being !
My writings also reflect me, my identity, my character, the essence of which is captured so beautifully in these lines of Henry David Thoreau:
“….to front only the essential facts of life, and see if i could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when i came to die, discover that i had not lived.
….to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life…to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms. “
The picture i present here is both..the Sunset and the Sunrise…and everything else in-between that you can imagine! Same with my writings. To put it succinctly through this modified quote:
“There are things said and there are things unsaid, and in between are the doors of perception”
Hope you will enjoy the adventures and the flavours.
Keep coming back for more !
