What Would I Write..

When so much is going on in your mind .. its such a good idea to see how another person veiws your views as...

What is the meaning of life? That, right there is a very poignant question. You can deliberate on it for days at a stretch and still not find the answer. Alternatively it can come as a revelation in a split second, the meaning of life. The answers, the priorities, the experiences they all contribute to that single meaning, that single perception, to bringing out the individual in you and me.

So if the question is that difficult to answer then why am I so focused on it right now? Well everyone hits a crossroad in life when they stand at the threshold of the realization that they are adults. I am not just talking about the “ability to vote” adults, but “my decisions and choices affect my life” type of adults. Decisions and confrontations, its amazing how the two are intertwined with one another and its also incredulous how we as people or adults sometimes consciously or subconsciously avoid both decisions and confrontations.

Are confrontations the big “evil”. If we have the audacity to air our feelings out about a person behind their back, why are we so flabbergasted at saying the same things to that person’s face? Why do people lack the ability or the foresight to see that sometimes confrontations resolve conflicts and not create them. I think that it’s the test of a friendship to survive unscathingly a confrontation or two? Just like, you are not really friends till you got drunk together, or some such right of passage, you are not really friends till you have understood each other despite the differences that are aired out.

My old friend Chronos or time as we call him, is a funny character. Sometimes he moves so fast that you barely have time to notice anything much less the changes that happened as he swept past. It’s a challenge I feel and that I have lately taken upon myself to stop and smell the roses or enjoy the little things in life. I am trying to effectively outwit Chronos.

Effectively writing as we do on these web logs we are really opening a window into our life for all to see. Just as reading other people’s blogs we are peeking into their life through the window opened by them. Does it seem like trespassing sometimes? You wouldn’t peek into a neighbor’s window and glimpse into their life, yet the blogs don’t really feel like trespassing. The power of the internet, things that aren’t ok in person maybe feel more reasonable because people aren’t standing in front of you, there is no eye contact and there fore no one to blame or shoulder the blame.

Its funny how technology has brought us closer and made the world a much smaller place to live in and yet, the same technology has driven us farther apart as people. Neighbors no longer even pick up the telephone to talk to each other. When we can simply sms our words across to the other person why bother picking up the phone. The world is increasingly drifting away from the personal touches that made us human. So are we sacrificing our humanity for the conveniences of technology?

Flags, boundaries, armies, Idiocracy

I am not sure if you have heard of the Movie Idiocracy 
But watching the Political news around me makes me wonder so many times... on how the equation of smart and dumb people in the world stands?

I am not a social scientist; but when I see people around me creating more and more divisions and boundaries, I feel we are heading the wrong way.

For example, I have had very deviant views for words like Patriotism. The love of your country is what is usually means. But people interpret it as protection of their country from other countries!

The only species to kill (not one) but many of its own.

What about recognizing ourselves as one species inhabiting one planet.

Do you think we can ever live as one? Why do we need someone above us? Why do we need rulers, presidents, prime ministers, etc.

We cannot live on our own without wanting to kill each other for resources?

What will bring our infighting down? Lower population, Aliens, appearance of GOD ?

It is Sad

Where am i

It has already been quite a while that i have been trying to answer a key question... Who am i and what am i doing here.   So i decided to change the approach. Let me try to answer... Where am I?   So i am in a driverless metro heading to what can be called east. Towards a metro station close to my apartment.   Digging deeper. East is word to describe a direction on an otherwise sphere (circular) earth. The Earth is a large sphere shaped mass consisting of many elements. It gives company to many such small and big masses which revolve around  a really one at the centre..called sun. This really large one is extremely hot and gives energy to most of these sphere shaped ones ... Revolving around it. So relative to where this sun is visible from where u are.. East or west is decided. Towards it is east. Explaining this i have gained clarity that this large locomotive which i called metro is going in the opposite direction referred as west. Lets focus away from definations of relative posi…

Noise

Decided to take an Auto/ rick to the airport.Took out music and plugged in There was the usual trrrrrr; the traffic.. the 'mucch-mucch' of the city. I increased the volume. It was on random number as usual and clicked till I reached 'noise' of the music to numb the 'noise' of the road.
It was quite a feeling. I used to be on these roads more often than now. I used to drive around here for work... through the 'mucch-mucch'! I just dimmed the clutter by increasing the 'noise' and experienced the city.. in its true essence. the patterns...and I could not help myself flow into the spiral of life and work.
I was shaken out by the sudden swerve we took; as if brought one layer up; the layers on 'Inception'
But I was still few layers in; but the jerks in life dont stop...So they? No.. 'no pattern continues in the continuum'
and Then I pulled myself out completely, by increasing the 'noise' and seeing everything around me as the patter…
