I Am A Woman…Incompetent To Men!

Food for thought-  I have been working all my lives to be equal to my counterpart, just to realize in the end that in this fight of equality , I have lost all what I originally had. 

From ‘Today’s Woman!

The title itself invites some ‘over-the-top’ responses like–‘Oh sure! you cannot’  or  ‘who said you can?” . However, for a change, I don’t really care. Yes, you heard me, I don’t really care!  I don’t care if I am feeble, if I am less intrepid, if I am capricious or volatile. To be equal to men in every sphere of life does not interests me much now. Did I try to be equal to men earlier? Yes, most definitely I did, owing to the amount of fear the horrific incidents instills in me, owing to the social stigma attached to being a girl in our society I tried to make peace with all the  bullshit going around.

Today when I look back and see things, they are all the same. My trying hard has made no impact on the world, it still thinks of me as a small feeble being who will always be two steps behind. What I lost in all these years of being equal to our counterparts is being who I actually am. God created two species “Men and Women” with different capabilities and different set of duties. In trying to do things what men can do, woman forgot doing what she was actually meant for. In trying to be equivalent to men, women have lost all what she originally had. We are different and we must learn to celebrate the difference rather than living on a fallacy of equality. I do not want to be on the same platform where men are , because the truth is men fight their own battle too, they have their own idiosyncrasies owing to which they go through their own situations, which we, may be, can never even think of.

The world works on equilibrium or balance or the theory of yin-yang, which many people don’t really get. But it does. The difference between a man and a woman is obvious, not just apparently ….even otherwise. I was a part of this conversation the other day where people were arguing about who is better, men or women. I rarely had anything special to say so I chose to just listen. All the girls gave many examples of girls reaching the other planets and hence making a difference to “girls community”. How does these things even matter when we discuss such issues today?

Woman can never be equal to men, and vice- versa.. and here I am not talking about the mental capabilities of anyone. Even if a woman is a trained fighter she just cannot fight ten men attempting to rape her. This is, however, another part of the story. As long as I am comfortable in being who I am, I am doing the duties demanded of me, well, I don’t want to be equal to men in any way. I would rather prefer being complimentary to them !

I am considering retirement…

I ‘ve heard people saying that you should never opt your hobby as a full-time career because then it slowly and steadily destroys your love and enthusiasm towards it. Then there comes a time when you almost start hating your work, with no other option left, but to work halfheartedly. Honestly, I never believed these underrated pessimistic statements. I still don’t! I am one of those rare souls who tried to opt hobby as a career, got a very positive response in the beginning, and then suddenly all went like a topsy-turvy land. I hate my job now and when I am saying this I don’t really mean hating my hobby. My poor luck has put me into a really disturbing situation where I work under this totally uncool manager, who thinks I am good for nothing. I do things here that are far away from my actual hobby and these ‘things’ are invariably ruining my skills. My mind constantly pokes me about “How unproductive I have become” and ” How my graph has been on a constant decline” since I entered “Retro city” (my office).  This 9 to 6 scenario is just getting the worst out of me.   stay_happy_my_friend-556021 So, by and large, (for now) I am not happy with the fact that I have taken up this job, and ended up lying in lurch and that I have grown-up. Growing up comes with many strings and cliches attached. It comes with some mandatory risks –which are indeed important. But for now I am considering retirement from this whole ‘Growing Up’ process. I am relapsing from my early days to the days when staying foolish was allowed, when talking stupid was allowed, when all our wishes were fulfilled, when eating ice-cream was the greatest thing I could wish for, where life was much much lively and fun. I want to play the stupidest of the games again. I want to be happy and contented with the silly petty things again, I want to go and sleep with my mom again and I want to trick mom with that silly ‘stomach ache’ gimmick to bunk the regular routine wrapped life. P.S: Stay Foolish, and eat all the ice creams! 😉

Sydney Siege, Peshawar attacks or tragic 16th Dec 2012…R.I.P Humanity!

I wrote this post long time back. Thought of posting it, but for some grammatical reasons it was lying safe in my “Draft House”. The incidents I was writing about are past now and it’ll be a perfect epitome of sciolism to talk about them now. But I am still posting it as a gesture of wrath for all those who are responsible for spreading all the ill-feelings in the air in 2014.

A lot is happening in the world with hatred howling from every corner. It has been like “I don’t like your religion—shoot (gunshot); I like your legs—rape; you don’t follow my orders—blast. Has humanity really taken a backseat? Really? Don’t people feel anything? Don’t they realize they too have a mother, children, and a wife? How would they feel if something similar happens to any of these? These realities seem like a horror story to me…where rapists threaten girls to get raped or they would do what happened with #nirbhaya, where out of nowhere a man terrifies the entire town sitting in a café leading to death of an innocent lady with two kids left alone, where terrorists blow the entire school to teach army a lesson.

Can anyone tell me who in the world teaches someone a lesson by killing innocent children who are too naïve to understand any of this?

What happened in Syria or rather happening there has surpassed the levels of humanity. They are killing people like kids show their wrath by throwing pebbles at each other. They marched from Syria across Iraq, where they continue to hold a territory and murder who don’t obey their orders. The ISIS and Syria militias are fighting because of the Sunni-Shia problem, whose root cause is religion. I mean Religion?? Which religion teaches you to kill people or force them to worship GOD in a particular manner. Newspapers say ISIS is very much adamant about their beliefs!

Seriously!! Beliefs?? What kind of beliefs? Did God sent them a personal message to show people the right way or wrong way of Worshiping God? or is there actually a “WAY” to worship God. I thought the belief comes from within and like I always say–God is nothing but peace in your sleep, motivation in your thoughts, courage within you, love in the world. He is sunni, he is shia, he is allah, he is jesus, he is krishna and he is if you believe, not if you do not.

This incorrect understanding of the whole “GOD Concept” makes people do some highly offensive things. In the disguise of religion they do such obnoxious things just to feel contented about what they are doing. This is wrong..this is making people heartless..and creating an imbalance in the society. I do not disrespect any religion, but I truly believe that no religion can teach us to kill, rape, or murder for self-interest!

I bid a Goodbye to 2014 in a hope that it takes away all the unfortunate things.

2015–Please add some Humanity in the air, homo sapiens truly need it!

Happy New Year- Let’s Make World A Better Place!

Happy2015

The first day of 2015 is here! Everyone is hoping to rock their respective worlds for, at least, the coming year. A lot happened in the previous year–less fortunate and more unfortunate things. This is, but, a harsh reality to gulp down. The world needs more beautiful souls like you guys to add a little more love, a little more happiness and a little more peace to this world.

So let us forget all the ill-feelings and bad thoughts and make this world a better place to live.

You are just required to do your bit and the rest will be taken care of.

Stay Blessed, Stay Happy and Stay Calm!

New Year Wishes From “Thoughts” 

Damn Reality..I Want Magic To Happen!!

images1.jpg

That’s too absurd of a statement I know, but this is one thing that my heart longs for. As we grow up and start understanding life and the fact that there is no damn thing like magic, we stop dreaming! We populate our minds with pessimistic thoughts like ‘how can I do it when many great people failed at it?’ ‘I don’t want a great life; I just want a simple life’. All nonsense, who doesn’t want a great life, who doesn’t want to get famous for any good work they do, who doesn’t want to earn lots of money and who doesn’t want to live a magical life? I am sure each one of us. I want every bit of this. Deep down a “YES” pops out from some corner of every heart to all these questions. Then what stops us from living the kind of life we always wanted. May be our presumptions about the pre-requisites of doing great things! I don’t have a pen so I can’t write for now (but being a writer is my dream)—you can go buy it or borrow it or write with a pencil may be. I don’t have a tread mill and don’t have time to go jog (but I do want a sexy looking physique)—you can take stairs instead of lift to your office.

These are just petty examples how badly we procrastinate things, leave things for tomorrow that’s never going to come, stop dreaming and stop believing in the magic of life! The magic and spark within us, that can actually make us do great things in life. That can make our reality equal to a magical life!

I am not writing these days, wanted to put something really nice here, but ended up with this. However, I want to make my life magical…like really really great, because I am fed up with the reality I am living in. I hate routines….I failed at something I was doing to escape my boring routine, which is why I was just motivating myself by writing this.

I am hoping I would carry-on with all the enthusiasm again!

Everyone have a good day!

Simple Pleasures Of Life

We are humans at its core!

That almost sounds like  a weird combination of words depicting something which is already barefaced. Yes,  we are humans and we know this hands down! Really? Or do we know Facebook more, or whatsapp or any social media interface for that matter? Understanding the latter sounds far more interesting, right? Yes may be for a few poor souls, but I have this one small part of my heart which is anti-technology. Not that I hate it, its just that I don’t like it. I hope you guys understand the difference.

Day 10–Dear Ms. Laughter

I am participating in the 30 Days Letter Challenge where you write one letter each day. This is the tenth letter, which is addressed to the person you miss the most.

I am lagging way behind in writing these letter challenges. However, I will not miss out on any letter even if I go for one letter a week.

Dear Ms. Laughter,

This was your trademark–LAUGHTER–whenever you used to laugh, you dreaded the entire floor with your horrifying yet scintillating laughter. Every time you cracked a joke  with that guffaw, the latter part was the subject of most of the amusement. You were a different person altogether than what you are now. You were the life of everything you were a part of.

You made everyone happy and believing. Life can be so unpredictable at times, everything changed with a blink of an eye. The years we spent together were the best years of my life. You always said and you say it even now “I don’t want a difficult life, if it can be a piece of cake I want to be the first one to grab the cake. I want an easy simple luxurious life. Period”. I am the first person today who wants the same for you–I want you to be happy, healthy, rich and strong.

Day 9- Dear Non-existent

I am participating in the 30 Days Letter Challenge where you write one letter each day. This is the ninth letter, which is addressed to your favorite internet friend.

Dear Non-existent,

invisible-man-370x229

I am an ambivert as I’ve already mentioned in couple of my letters. This particular word engraved in me doesn’t allow me to talk much–be it online, off line, to strangers, or newly made friends. However, once I indulge in talks, I am difficult to stop. I am a bore sometimes and I am ‘life of the party’ in the other –all depends on the mood and the surrounding crowd.  Am I going off the track? Yeah, may be. So, this letter is addressed to you Mr. or Ms. Non-existent a.k.a ‘a favorite internet friend’. This clearly depicts that I don’t have any favorite internet friend or lemme think…ummmm…actuallly I don’t really have any unknown or known favorite friend on internet.

I know social media is a timeless legend, which has proved to be a match maker in innumerable cases.  But for me its nothing more than a life savior–sorry if I am hurting sentiments, but it is. I interact with many new people online–most of them exists in my WordPress reader section, but I don’t think I am FRIENDS with somebody. Yes, the ones I know in person are worth every second of life and I love them all. May be my concept of FRIENDSHIP is a bit overboard..or may be I am a little off center today……writing things that are making less sense. I had been into this blind Gmail chat with some unknown lad long back in college. The experience was disastrous…so I just allowed my instincts to rule over my wishes since then. Moreover, this routine-wrapped life relegates everything that tries to break it of. Dear non-existent please be the way you are–away from me. I know that sounds rude but as they say ‘ignorance is worst than rudeness’. You never know you might save your self from a massive heart-break, by not getting in touch with me. 😉

Ohkay enough of throwing this wrath upon you. This is seeming too good to be true..I mean how easy life would be if we could do this on our every ‘blue’ days. Throw your wrath upon any non-existent person and get along–without worrying about the revert.

Yours

Thoughts!

P.S: If I ever had any unknown internet friend and if that friend reading this piece…just shift+delete all those memories. 🙂
