Learnt it ..... i hope ... :)

I learnt to walk, after i felt the fall
Learnt to smile, after a broken thought
Learnt to fight, after facing the defeat
Learnt to wakeup, after having the dream
Learnt to laugh, after the fall of a tear
Learnt to love, when i lost someone near
For all those things that happened
I am glad they taught me ------
I learnt to live, 'BEFORE' i die ......

Humans - the progressive ......

We truly are a progressive species they say - if growing in numbers is the measure of progression - oh yes WE ARE. If destroying the natural order is - oh yes WE ARE. I just dont understand how can we not see it?

Have you seen the picture of earth from the satellite. Its blue - its green and then there are spots which look like diseased parts - spreading the infection - eating up the resources - moving to next part - and growing without bounds. Had an oncologist heard it - i am sure he couldnt have explained the cancerous tissue growth in our body better.

They grow unabated - We grow unabated
They eat up the resources in the tissue and issue toxins - we do the same
They move to new locations to spread the cancer - we too do that when we find any resource anywhere.

Sorry for sounding so grouse - but then truly i am not sorry for saying that - coz thats the truth. Our cities are build on the graveyards of forests - The rest of the animals are outcasts - as if its not there world too is it. But "why should i care" attitute get the better of us. We cannot go beyond the limits of our 'selves'. Can we give up a little bit of comfort so that the earth breathes a bit easy --- NO. Now where i am - i am trying but just am not able to find my way back - back to nature.

Science has helped a lot - ya thats what we all think (here i am referring to technology) - but in reality its the axis of all problems. If you think it logically --

Life got comfortable/better [in terms of luxuries] with the advents in technology --- This lead to growth in our numbers --- new problems because we surpass the equilibrium level meant for us --- then we search for newer technology that solves existing problems --- in turn making life more comfortable --- that leads to growth in our numbers --- and the cycle continues. Its a sort of circle -- opertional in the long run.

Just for facts - the natural number for us was somewhere in a few lakhs - and that was maintained for a long long time but since the last century we are already in billions. If you imagine its like 1000 people riding on a bicycle meant for at max. 2 . Sure its gonna break down - what are you expecting. But as long as i can eat - sleep - move around - reproduce - 'Why should i care'.

We all would be rejected - just like we have rejected the natural order. But still the earth holds on - still there is chance - but as i can see it - none are ready to embrace it - and do their bits.

No - i am not accusing neither am i blaming anyone - but this is the state of matters that we cannot deny or rather deny at our own peril.

All the best - I will still hope ........ till the end :)

PS - Donot see the anger in the post above - but the viewpoint. Thank you.

Ping in Blinks

blink blink
ping :)

blink blink
ping :D

It is so simple to be happy ........

PS - just in case you are wondering what is this - you already know. Must have happened to ya sometime or the other....

The strangest part .......

Woke up a bit late - sister shouting to get ready for school - the school bus already reached my stop - all i could do was look through the window. But i had to go to school - just had to that day. So took the kinetic to school - and without licence...... but what the hell.

the road to school was long - it was 11 kms out of city limits. And it was my first time - maybe first time for anyone in my class that someone was coming to school by bike. Was i grown up for that - nevertheless i was driving. Two policemen stared at me - of course they knew from the look of my eyes that i didnt have licence - but i sped off on their face.

Then i dont know what happened but i reached chennai and my kinetik was nowhere to be found. But the temple was looking very majestic. Oh yeah i was at a temple - dont start asking me how.

I entered the temple - it was of black stone completely - maybe created out of one huge stone. It was majestic. More funny was that i found my friend, who was supposed to be in another city, there. He was with 3 other friends who had come for a visit to the temple. I went in front of him and sat down and said - '!!!! SURPRISE !#@!!!' . After the customery slandering we were laughing, but then i saw my aunty in the temple and she started asking me when am i getting married...... well it started getting crazier in here.

But that was a short talk and it was time to take a bus back home - hope fully back to where i came from. But i had not taken the ticket and didnt know how to get one. There was huge commotion as the whole crowd in and around the temple wanted to get on the bus.

My friends too had no idea where to get the ticket from and so it was decided the one who finds it will tell the other. And we walked in other directions. And suddenly i saw her - from a distance and it was just a glance, but i could recognise her anywhere.

She had not seen me, good, i liked to give surprises. So trying not to show my face i moved towards her. Tickets - oh yeah - it was completely out of my mind the moment i saw her. She was with her friends probably - but that was 'moo' condition for me. I crossed her in a swift move and said when my mouth was closest to her ear - 'dingdong'.

And turned around after walking a few more step .

"Hey i didnt mean to hit your toe, that was an accident"

She was speechless, just looking at me. Wasnt saying anything. I was expecting something ...........

Then suddenly the ground began to shake and i found out that the temple was on a cliff and the whole cliff was shaking as if there was an earthquake. And the buses had already started sliding in random direction and one was coming towards me....

I was on the cliff now , hanging on the edge and the bus moving towards me .......... and then BLANK.................
Again i could see, i was still hanging by the cliff. The earthquake had stopped. I saw my friend standing on one of the ledge and saying - "yyeeaaaa ben, jump here you will be alright".
I pulled myself up - the ground level was distorted, the buses were all gone. A few people were present there. I saw her too there. This time those eyes were happy ....... very happy.
We ran towards each other and hugged....... ZZZZZZZZAapppppppp ........

"OYE!! office nahi jana hai kya aaj" - (Oye!! Dont you have to go to office today"
It took me a while to come back to earth.

beep beep grrrrrr grrrrrrr

[Recieved SMS]
"I Love You dear" ...........

Now that was the strangest part of it all........ :)

The Sand .....

The sand
was slithering off my hand
wishing to keep it
i held it tight
but that didnt stop the sand
it kept slipping
my nails digging
i was in pain
coz i wanted to gain
but that didnt stop the sand
i let it flow
the sand that wanted to go
my fist unclenched
but then it stayed
the excess was greed
that i did not need
what i deserved
on my hand was served
