“Don’t resist the effect”, were the last words he could
recollect. And that he maintains to date, has made all the difference. It
wasn’t easy then and isn’t now.
Sometimes dealing with the effect has this strange quality
of being difficult, especially when the cause was unintended for. You may ask
how many causes do we have control over. Most times we are the subjects of
random events in life. And, boy oh boy, was Tarun aware of it.
But to think of it, acceptance is one word that is highly underrated. Everything else in life is overrated. At least that’s what he had experienced so far. If there was one thing he believed strongly all his life, it
was this “Follow your heart. But never let it get outside your body.” He has
been the epitome of practicality. He is a man of strong will. He has persevered
many a times. But alas he is also a human. This is his story and whole of his
life has been a flashback.
It wasn’t the first time he had heard something similar. But
this was a reaffirmation he needed now. As he lay on the bed in the operation
theatre, the doctor asked for a new pair of forceps and a knife.
I think it is getting tough for me to keep aside the 'Thoughts' series! Have a few single topic posts in draft now but these thoughts just seem to leave no space for me. So while the long ones can wait even longer, here goes another in the current series. This one on the heart-mind duality:
I have no questions but I would still like to find some answers now.
Isnt it amazing how many wonders a resolve can bring for you?
Agar duniya mein timepass karne ke saadhan nahi hote toh hamara timepass kaise hota?
Agar hum sab samajhdar ho jayenge toh samajhne ke liye kya hi bachega.
It is not that complicated. Nothing is!
Follow your heart but just dont let it get outside your body.
So it was the last of the three long weekends here in June and off we went to the City of Lights - Paris. Hopefully the last trip in this rotation. For I seem to have accomplished the (only) objective I had set for this one ;) As usual there were lots of thoughts going through my mind during the trip but the dominant of them was that in the end everything is lost in the history. To be discovered again and lived and lost... and discovered and lived again and lost and so on... and on.
Anyways I have now got the following professions added to in my 'I want to be' list:
Some travelling (more on this later) and some diversions for the mind delayed this one. But here goes yet another in the Thoughts series. This time in the form of some questions. They may not necessarily mean what they seem to imply. Hope you enjoy finding your own answers, if any:
Thinkers think, actors act, performers perform. What the heck are you doing out here?
At a given point of time we are all at different stages of evolution, are we?
Sometimes life is not all what we should live for, should we?
Systems are so much pain. Why do we even need them?
Why do we build houses?
Does thinking paralyse your actions?
How different is liking what you do to doing what you like?
Life mein kuch exciting na hone ka yeh matlab thode hai ki life exciting nahi ho sakti?
What better way to start than to continue the series of random thoughts that got me into serious blogging the first time. For those not familiar with this blog, these are short notes (sort of tweet-logs) of what goes through my mind while experiencing the different experiences this life has to offer. Mostly I leave it as crude material for the readers to have their own meaning (if they find any!). Honestly speaking, its too taxing to elaborate for someone like me who loves to think endlessly! Sometimes to the point of no return. I would anyday prefer listening over talking. But this is my outlet and after all why should I suffer alone with my thoughts? Well there are plans to write long ones as well. But lets see how this one goes for now..
Suffering is inevitable, so is happiness.
Lot of things get into our head. Brain for instance is one of them.
What if we scream out so loud that even the Gods cant hear!
The fact is we make sense out of what we understand.
To be honest I have never seen a sane man who isnt mad.
Why define exceptions when we cant understand normality?
Never underestimate the power of identifying the problem before solving it!
There is no dearth of interesting things in life, the challenge is to do the boring ones!
What is it with the Royals that we commoners so admire?
Knowledge is a dangerous thing, it unlocks potential.
Come to think of it, the world seems so confusing. But when we dont, it doesnt.
I wanted to update this blog for long. In fact wanted to be a regular here since even longer. Still do..!
I believe its the time and again realisation that one has, having tasted the pleasure of penning *posting* down stuff even for once during the lifetime. That time for me is now. To reinforce to myself the anchoring role this platform has been and will continue to have in my life. This ofcourse has been made possible by all the fellow bloggers who have encouraged, supported and motivated through the different phases this blog has gone through. Particularly Kayal, Phoenix, Vik, Vinayak, Ach_85, Geetika, Aditi and Kauzzy (in order of arrival) for being around the longest. You guys are the precious ones :) Hope to get your continuous support and some new patronage as well in the future!
So without further ado I hope this innings goes on to be the best for a long long time to come!
