I lay on the bed with clothes strewn.
Crumpled and pushed in a bundle at the edge of the bed. The pilow over it

Inteha- Jagjit's latest album playing on the winamp - which had been captured lately by newly received Spanish and Italian numbers.

I was magically transported to my college hostel room.
Manish would play his Marasim with the Yellow bulb glowing in his corner of the room and he would be there.
Just there.

As if... inside the title track.... Haath Choote hai toh rishtey nahin choota karta...

It flashed back so vividly.
The campus roads
The hangouts....
The guys and the girls with whom we played what now seem like games only!
The rides on tractor-backs loaded with wheat or sugarcane.
Hot summers and "Tandoori Aloo Parathas with Lassi" at Bhola's Dhaba!
The the drowsy lectures that entailed where would be busy playing BULL-COW on paper to keep us awake.
The sights of fights during the exams and what followed....

My thoughts just flowed into the time that seemed like soothing simple music of the tracks playing.

The sms woke me out!

Our mind is an awazing thing for sure!

Amazing it is, this mind of ours...all it needs is a whiff of something, be it music, a fragrance, and it recreates the times gone by!

How have you been?

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
