“Readying themselves to fly, they prepare to take the initial jump knowing that the beauty lies in believing in oneself and one’s ability to solve their problems. Spreading their wings and flying high with their heads held high.”
Our day starts with the existing problems in our lives and the task ahead, which we try to find a fix to solve it. In a human life, problems are part of our living. They come and share dressing table with us, staring us with their horrific looks and sounds. Its like a crime thriller where we need to see the climax to relax ourselves, but if the problems were so simple to solve then how do we find our lives so dynamic and beautiful. So ultimately we don’t find the climax we are looking for, and end up biting few more pills to take care of the anxiety. In meantime, something beautiful happens that is we fall asleep which provides us much needed rest and making our thinking fresh and tuned to the surrounding. Next day, we do carry the tonnage but with a new intensity and belief, believe it or not, it does allow us to find the fix. The play of nature is so amazing that, few other problems prop up along the previous solution giving us a new direction and new energy to live for.
If we observe the day cycle closely we find that answers to our problems are within our mind but locked somewhere and key is misplaced. Dreams provide a platform to find that key to unlock and decipher the mysteries of our lives. It shows us that keys are numbered and time must be taken to match the number on the lock with the key.
Finding the climax of our problem does give us relief but also satisfaction of achieving a framework to solve the problem. This experience is also passed on to the needy so that there disillusionment gets demystified and allowing one to fly high with their burdens unshackled from their wings.
The play between the loves’ of life and the reality is abysmally difficult to comprehend. Breaking our heads to get the logic behind the scenes is way too much to ask for, the best alternative left out is to sit back enjoy the movie with popcorn and coke. This movie is one which plays on till our last breath and believe me it is nothing different than our own bollywood formula. In short, 5 songs and all is well climax, what else do an average Indian want. But the moment one tries to move the veil off and look carefully to find, that our stories are not that different. People have dreams similar in intention but only the degree varies. This makes the content alone a variable, leaving the form same.
The external qualities are only an exaggeration of our thoughts, as internal you will remain more or less the same.
When the exaggeration is kept aside and looked at the world ahead, we only find monotony but that’s one sacrifice we need to make for eternal peace.
‘Universality for peace lies in commonality of us’.
There are different types of worlds’ for every person, but the common one is what i am referring to. My journey starts in 1996 from the place named Kargil, I was there when i was around 3 years old. In the six months i have stayed, frankly speaking i remember none. But pictures my parents took remain, the greenery and the grandeur of the place is unmatchable. The peace and the silence vibrating from the green is still priceless to my eye. 1997, Meerut, the place which made the most amazing jelebi and has the most vibrant crowd. I spent my 3 beautiful years here, learning various aspects of life from my parents, my teachers and my friends. People say ideals and notions start emerging inside one at the age of 10, I will say yes they do. 2000, Leh-Ladakh, True beauty of this place was understood by me only after i left the place. Mountains were so huge that their shadows used to create low temperatures in those areas. The Magnetic point where the car could virtually be pulled up front with out engine force ( mind you the road was plain ) . Khardungla pass, the highest road at 18000 Ft is one place where i would request people to visit. The snow covered mountains, from that height, looks so beautiful that i remember comparing it to vanilla ice cream with blue berry topings. This is place where i learnt what echo is, it’s seriously fun.
Rest of the journey to follow with the course of time.
Universe we live in is not the only one, if we look closely we find various branches emerging out from the present universe. These branches are nothing but imagination of the 7 billion inhabiting the only planet in the solar system. Every branch is similar but unique. Similar because the reality around us is more or less same while unique due to the meaning which we attach to the reality. Closer one looks, deeper he sees and more different he finds. Like the music flowing in the year transcends one to a newer sphere of imagination, rich with color and emotion which have become devoid in this reality which we live in. The exaggeration of the present lot makes one high on the substance which is as mundane as him.
The world we imagine is customized with different ingredients of one’s liking, thus making the reality become displeasing when compared. There have been instances when we wake up imagining a narration and then set our foot to make it work in the present reality. This view which i am presenting it to you is part of my dream’s narrative, my little universe.
I have not one but many universes which i attach to every individual and environment around me; It sounds baffling and strenuous to hold on so many existential and non-existential reality. But that’s the beauty of our brain, it can manage as we call it ‘Jugaad’. Lets speak about the universe where exists our family, it forms the inner core of us. They are larger than life relations where we can go to any extent to see them happy. Whenever we are down, we look up to them. They, on the other side, make sure that everything is alright so that their son/daughter are happy, even if it means to jump out their comfort zone. This is the beauty of consanguineal relations which makes one say that the world looks beautiful but he is looking only at the greener side.
The reason being we have other universes also, which are not necessarily functional in nature; The sphere of competition where we see many succumb but few succeed. The irony of the reality which exists around us is that, we see the few succeed but dispel the ones’ who have lost. This picture can be changed, by looking at not by the naive view as winners and losers but winners all together. in short, everyone learns something or the other, the experience becomes richer and we emerge as a better individual.
“Too many makes too little understanding” – Will continue other universes in the next blog. Keep imagining as the world around us is providing with various opportunities for us to utilize. .
Leader is the one who is born from the masses; the leader in reference here need not be a political stigma but even a person who raises his hand to question the authority of its wrong doing. In the process he not only stands up for himself but to the whole society sitting in silence for years together. The common man is used to take so many hardships in life; it is as if he is born to adjust. But after a limit has been crossed, when he can’t bend further, the change what occurs there either defines him or destroys him. Standing up after years of bending, gives him a new lease of life creating power unimaginable. The sheer will for justice drags people from their streets to support the cause. The cause gets stronger with the leader. The man gains recognition and his charm is spread all around. People start pouring in and the cause gets bigger. The shackles which bounded the people have been broken instead wings has been attached for them to act. Sense of freedom is finally felt, the thought is wide spread and the song has been hummed by everyone, “It’s my country and I am its rightful owner”. The government has no idea how to handle the situation, it imposes emergency in haste. People are on the streets fighting the government. Water cannons and tear gas surround the place but the people are not in a mood to listen. They have decided to come and conquer what is rightfully theirs. “Time has come people to unite and overthrow the monopoly of this monarch who is been feeding on our dead corpses. Plans have been laid; execution is the next big thing for democracy. We the people, for the people and of the people give this country to you, the people of ____from these corrupt and elevate us to sovereignty. The days are not far when we will see the sunlight emerging from this abyss, it’s going to be a far better place than we ever imagined. Tomorrow before dawn we will see ourselves free, standing tall on the fort of hope, captivating a long standing battle of oppression and injustice. Long live the leader, long live ___.
The next day, rebels won their battle against the monarchy which existed for centuries and a new sense of life started flowing into the hearts of the people. But the victory was at the cost of their beloved leader who was murdered by a conspiracy with a traitor in their group who carried the action on the demand of the king. The leader was flown in a casket of flowers to the capital which witnessed almost millions of people gathered to see their beloved leader lay into rest. They took an oath that day; ten years from now we will prove the world our greatness with development and happiness. Integrity and unity of our nation will be talked everywhere. Our prosperity will be unmatched. The sanctuary of love what we hold in our hearts will be preserved generation hence. Our beloved leader we promise you the state you have always dreamt of. Long live ____
Note: ____ can be any country requiring a revolution to bring it back to the people. When the system stays for long it becomes frozen and corrupt, only a total change can help in reviving the country and it’s failing system. Revolution doesn’t have any age, it comes naturally to us. And when the time demands, there will be rise.
All throughout our life, we keep searching for happiness which according to me is satisfaction. We go to any level for finding it, doing one thing over another but ending in battles of mind which create stress. Finally we sit down trying to relax and again starting off for the satisfaction factor to be included in our lives before we lie lost in a 6ftx3ft area with R.I.P inscribed above.
People and their views of satisfaction are totally dependent on their level of thinking and persona, there are n number of battles to be fought for some x amount of treasures left. And all this for what, ‘yes’ to feel accomplished, that is some or other way related to satisfaction.
After a day long work, you want to fall asleep as soon as you hit your bed, if you do, then you have achieved your satisfaction for the day. Sorry to say satisfaction nullifies the very next day and we start off from ground zero where we built a castle day ago.
In our present lives, satisfaction is momentary and to some extent fictional. So guys lets find our short and sweet satisfaction which may lead to our life long satisfaction which we strive hard for.
Sneak peak @ writer’s feeling:
Lying on the bed and typing my first post, feeling of short and sweet satisfaction growing inside and, people ‘yes’ satisfaction do exist, may not be long but that ‘particular moment happiness’ is what we strive for.
