May Be...



When one routine ends ...we simply dive into a new one. As I come back home this Friday night , I take a break from my cellphone ,e-mails and myself. The day I wait for every week is here - Tomorrow ,I can skip everything I hate – Waking up early, forcing my eyeballs accept polymers to see the world better, going through my “To-Do-List” on my way to the office and making it on my way back.

I stare at the city , so well framed by the window of my room - this is where I lose myself everyday amongst the thousands ….it’s still alive …colours, lights, savvy people ,the latest cars …the noise,the rush and the charade.

A New year in a new city, new roomies , new targets and a new role to play ….I wonder how it still is the same old struggle everyday to hit certain life targets that we all are so programmed to achieve - A secure job , a family back home and a hope that the years to come will be better.

I slept off , without managing an answer to the question I ask everyday --What if someone wants to miss the pre-planned targets ? May be one such impulsive Friday night holds the key to my question ….

What should I say... Again something so commonplace.. Questions that we all know, think, ask ourself

But neva thot of penning it down.. The entire thot process.. well captured..

Nice picture! And even better, are the introspective questions you raised, Pooja. I think about some/all of them at all/some times, and rarely find an answer.

It boils down to what gives you happiness, financial security and stuff like that or just doing something you like. It's sort of what the Linklater movie Slacker is about.

Sigh. I hate the industrial revolution.

How true... In our 23-24 yrs of existense, we have been running after what is called an ideal life and yet when we arrive dere...we find something missing.... i think admist in all this idealism... what we miss is "ourselves".

it eases a little bit if we start accepting that, all this is a part of big plan by the Big Daddy, and we are merely executing it here :)
