Explain Yourself !

We think a lot... assess... analyse...
Try to be logical in our approach towards everything...

Because we see great merit in logic...
We assume that we need to give everyone an explanation...
Even to those who don't deserve one...
Is it really needed...

Why should I have to explain every action and thought...
To justify that there is no malign intended...

Somehow acting on things is not as tiring as giving explanations for what has been done... 


The only correct actions are those that demand no explanation and no apology.

Our Life Ahead

We look ahead in life... we plan for what we want it to be like...
In hope that it will all work out...
In confidence that we would be able to control the way things pan out...

But what we are merely doing is hedging our risks.... 
Because we don't seem to have control at all... 

On when it is time to come... and when it is that you drop dead...

So play all you want... Eat what you like...
Live the moment...
Dance on the streets....

Because you never realize this is the last.... till it is too late..

To be and not be

I aspired for you... I craved for you... I wished you were with me at all times.. to consume... to enjoy.... and now that you are finally here... I wonder there isn't too much of you in my life...

From longing... to seeking... to finding.. to experiencing.... too getting fed-up..... I wonder how the whole cycle suddenly turns around and stares you in the face suddenly....

Patterns in Life

Most people try and explain what life is with expressions, images... but I am yet to come across a more appropriate description... Its actually a part of The Curious Incident of the dog in the Night Time by Mark Haddon.

Prime numbers is what is left when you take all the patterns away. Prime numbers are a lot like life, They are very logical, but you can never work out the rules, even if you spend all your time thinking about this.

The most random events seem to occur in our lives... and yet, in retrospect.. it all falls into place... there seems to be a pattern and a reason... except it alludes us in the present.

Point of View

Everything has a interpretation.. What we do, what we say...

And the interpretation is not subject to what one does or days, but what the viewer interprets of the situation.... What adds up to the whole situation is the preconceived notions...

So what happens if we get misinterpreted... or lets just say someone provides an alternate interpretation... So how do we say if the water is flowing upstream or is it all downhill from there :)

Time and Tide teaches all of us

Hope is a funny thing...
There are times when we don't think or imagine that something will happen... that here might be a change... and then suddenly, there is a flash,,, 
All of a sudden, all the variables involved in the equation change...

Things appear in a new light... you see people in a new light....
and suddenly, it doesn't seem all that grim...

Situations change... and so do people... or atleast our outlook towards them...
So do we change with time... or does time change us ?

The Background Score

We all like being the front runner... or atleast a part of the action... right in the middle of the hustle bustle... hoping that we wouldn't miss out on anything...
That is natural tendency...

So when you end up taking the backseat... fading into the background... in view of the bigger picture... it is a tough decision to make... the only hope being this decision will not be in vain, and will not be forgotten...

But what hurts the most, is that those who silently fade into the background without making too much of noise, are often forgotten a little too soon... in that they are not given credit for what is due...

Though they are not the Hero of the show, they still are as much an essential part of the crew....

If only people would understand that most things are team work... and if someone is able to be a Hero is because someone decided to work in the shadows towards the same thing.
