A world waiting to be explored

Question Mark !!!!!

One night when sleep once again betrayed me, I went out in the balcony and started to look up at the stars. I started making out patterns, one pattern which I could easily make out was a Question Mark ?
Perhaps because my life has never gone through a phase when certainty was there. I smiled looking upwards, indeed I was smiling(rather laughing) at myself. I looked up again....
Question Mark ? Question Mark ? Question Mark ? Question Mark ?........Question Marks everywhere....
I took a deep breath, there was silence all around and I realized that silence can also be comforting sometimes. Since I was going through a phase of introspection those days, I thought this could just be the time I may get some answers. I started to look around to see if there is something else.
I took out a piece of paper and a pen and started to make a wish list. A list of all the things I aspire to achieve. As expected I had written a handful of things and then happened something. As always happens with me, a voice came from within asking me to scribble down what am I doing to achieve the ephemerals on the wish list. I started and within minutes I was finished with the writings.....

I stood up, took out another paper and prepared a list of things I need to do. I knew I was taking a step in the right direction but somehow I was still not convinced, something was holding me back.
I kept writing(rather planning) and then 4 hours later I realized that I had slept in the balcony that night and it rained heavily. I looked at the paper and I was dazed to see that at the end of the list, I had unconsciously written, "I wish it rains !!!!"
I don't remember if I wrote this. I don't know what prompted me to do this but I started to tear off the portion where "I wish it rains " was scripted and suddenly amidst the shining sun and clear sky was a streak of lightning and thunder, I could see the clouds being tore apart, whirlwind, rain and cyclone.
And I was brought to senses, yes, with my mother shouting at me, it was then that I actually woke up, I ran back to my room with the paper folded in my hand. I unfurled the paper there. The words that followed changed the way I used to think and approach life.


I realized that it was something that was always dwelling inside the sub-conscious, may be I was too lame(rather lazy) to go about it.
That night still remains as an unsolved puzzle.....but after that night I rarely saw a question mark in the sky.. :)

Still proud ??

This is an earnest request to please read this post with zeal and feeling and if possible loudly too otherwise the post just isn't worth your read.

After all that happened, gradually everything started to settle down and as time passed everything was just left in previous days' newspapers and then it became history. And you told yourselves that life moves on and so have you !
Well, if you thought so, then i will say you are a loser, you are a coward, you are just a person whose existence holds no meaning, you don't have it in you to accept that you ran away.

Terrorist attacks in local trains on July 11, 2006 or the terrorist attack on The Taj on November 27, 2008. The whole nation was in a state of frenzied hysteria. Each one of you were in tears after seeing the whole scenario on the (daily soap dominated) television. And then as the days passed, the tears dried. You told yourselves that we have seen enough deaths in our lives that now we find tears hard to come.

I say, "WOW !!! What a reason to hide your weaknesses, your inability to do ANYTHING, THE THEORY OF ESCAPISM...."
And you people say that we are PROUD TO BE INDIANS
How many of you even remember the dates, Well.....congratulations if you do !!!
All of us saw movies like Rang De Basanti and at the end of the movie, we were furious, we wanted to be the change, we wanted the precarious yet uniquely structured system to be overcome by a more efficient one. And we did something, we clapped, we praised the actors for their work and said that the movie was worth the money. Ohh yes, we also voted for the actor to win awards.


The words may hurt you and some may even give up before reading the whole article. I would like to tell all of you who felt offended or hurt, YES ! YOU ARE GUILTY !
