Indifference:More hurtful than outright dislike!

It’s not about  time, it’s all about the priorities—you must stay in touch—it’s a secret to  good life—blah blah blah…all those silly things, which are by the way true. A buddy from college called me up.. some one week back. We talked for 2 minutes and then I had to keep down the phone. She called again but I didn’t pick. And hence again..but I didn’t pick —because I was busy all the times. And to everyone’s dismay it was a Sunday.

Friends for life

Friends forever

In the end she dropped a text on my cell phone and I swear it felt like the words were about  to slap me really hard. Anyways the text said:

“I am not going to call you ever again. It’s more than two months that we’ve not talked. At the first place you never call and whenever I call, you never pick. Whenever I text, you never bother to reply back. What the hell are you busy with?

Work?

Oh don’t even try and give me this crap. Who is not busy? Everyone is! I was super busy when I was working away from home but still I managed to give you a call. I am done with this friendship now. It is just a burden for you. Goodbye!”

Heavy?? I know it is.

But that’s how life has turned. Super busy and wrapped in a routine, which allows no one to enter except the food, papa’s call, work, Friday fantasies and a little sleep. However, I fought a lot to dodge my mistake, but deep down in my heart I realized… That no matter how busy you are, relationships are important.

“I had the best intentions, but I was busy” –The excuse will not work when one day you’ll have nobody to look forward to. No friends, no family—nothing! When you’ll have a lot of balance in your cell phone, but no one to call! When you’ll have  bank balance, but no one to hang out with!  Technology has made everything so damn easy. We can stay in touch with people at almost every corner of the world. But we don’t’…oohh sorry I don’t. Why?

I am still trying to figure out. And in the meanwhile I am making a list of people I should stay in touch with. But whether I find out the answer or not, I know now that yes..Staying in touch is important. Being nice to the people on your way up, is important. Because the same are going to meet you on your way down!

Call, text, chat, or do whatever—but try and stay in touch at least with the close ones! It’s not about the long phone chats or calls. Dropping a morning and an evening message everyday would do a lot. A 5 minute call would make them think that you remember them—and trust me, that’s enough.

For my power-puff girl (that’s what I call my female friends who are not bloggers): If you’re reading this anyhow, thanks for being a wonderful friend to me. You’ll always be special!

P.S: People are more important than your car’s leather seats that never hug, laptops that never speak and money that can never buy love.

Leaving you a song from my track list. Stay tuned!

WordPress –An escape Into Life!

It’s been a while I know, but I did all my ‘Wordpress’ homework. Read all the amazing posts—smiled at a few—stole some beautifully crafted sentences—and brushed up my vocab. You guys are amazing writers!! 🙂

live life fully

Life is so overtaxed with work, issues, hitches, dos, donts—and has just taken a lifeless form. But amid everything, WordPress is the only place I have to look forward to (hope I could hug you tight WordPress). No matter how out-of –mind I am but reading you guys here, makes me feel alive. It’s my escape into life. Yes it is! Because what we live every day is not life, it’s a schedule, a routine. But WordPress is my desired version of life. A place where I could just live peacefully—where I could see how some exceptionally artistic people connect life with words—Where I could put my words the way I want them to—where I could live my life on the edge of everything—where there is no need to fight an already lost battle to stop the running time.

I hate going to “The retro city” (my office). It gives me the feel of “living a retro era”—where people are boring, archaic, lack fun and god dam it too aged for me to work with.

Alright, I know I have broken all my promises (to myself) of working on ‘Friday Fantasies’ but still I am hopeful to resurrect again. I hope my “open attack of work” doesn’t break any more bones of my wishes and anticipations.

 

P.S: Thank You WordPress and all the beautiful people who make my ‘reader’ section incredible!

 

 

 

In the kingdom of truth, context is the king!

2192928_f496

Truth, they say, is perceived differently by everyone and everybody has their own versions of truth. When we tell someone about something and talk by making ourselves as the central point. We make sure to keep ourselves in the comfort zone, so that our own statements should never sound like oxymoron. In the kingdom of truth context is the king, but if you have no contextual evidence. Then?

So what does this mean? Are we trying to prove ourselves correct and the other person wrong? No, not at all! May be we just go with the flow of emotions, making no room for understanding. We are just too hurt to understand anything that makes sense. Yes, of course the other one can be manipulative but can never be completely wrong. He has his part of the story and you have yours. He talks about his perspective and you talk about yours. And in the end you are left in lurch with no one to blame around. All this is a confused set of statements with a question mark.

Heads: I am right!

Tails: You’re right!

Mind: No one is wrong!

Heart: Screw everything and breathe!

Now who is right? God damn just tell me who the hell is right? Yes we shout like insanes in our heads to search for an answer—a freaking answer. But at the end when we sit down, think sanely, our mind still tells us to shut up and let things go! And that we should behave like—-that was your perspective and this was mine, so forget everything and shake hands!

But Haaaaaaaaaaa dude!!—it’s too late to shake hands because we are already enemies in our heads!

P.S: Think before you act to avoid unintended conclusions. Either avoid repercussions or learn to live with them!

This is one of my “blue days”—-so a song from my track list.

Stay tuned!!
