The beginning of a new season of my life.

26/11/2008 This date is always going to be remembered by me as for years to come. Those 60hrs of life which I spent largely in front my TV. I was sitting on the couch, watching the heart breaking, blood bath in the heart of Mumbai. Innocent life’s coming to an end all prey for the blood game of 10 odd terrorists. There was anguish within me but had no way to express it.
And the idiotic senseless political blame game began soon after. Heads might have rolled amongst the people in power, but that’s no solution. Its never going to bring back the dead. Its never going to enough to heal bruises not just physical injuries of victims. But also the mental agony and bruises on our minds.
I can’t speak for everyone, but for me Its definitely not going to be the same again. There is just one life gifted to me. And I’m determined to make a difference, big or small way, for my society.
People might forget all that happened. Get back into the cocoon they have been living in. Never introspecting the reason for their existence, not me. I know I’m here for a purpose. We all are bestowed with life for a reason.
Shed the veil of hypocrisy. How long are we going to hide behind the rose tinted glasses. Bartering human emotions, ones dreams for handful of money. Succumbing to the peer pressure.
Yes I may not be rich and affluent today. But that will not stop me from dreaming for the better and achieving it. I’m rich too so is all of the fellow human beings. Rich with the wealth of making others happy. Spread the message of peace and harmony.
I can see it and feel it to. The beginning of a new season of my life.

Awakening Of the Inner Self!

It was yet another Friday or billions of earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.

Sweet Song of The Soul

The distance between us questions possibilities,
Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached,
Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet,
Yet hope says they would someday be entwined.

UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged,
Unassuming how the world would read them,
Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail,
It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought.

Feelings expressed in words for many are view points,
Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few.
Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart,
These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art.

Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts,
Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest.
Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others,
Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.

-VJ says ~ cheers and peace

Let's accept, It's important to fail!!!

The other day in midst of a long tiring journey from the airport I zoned out in thoughts, looking outside the window. What was I thinking? I was trying to fathom as to what's the single most element distinguishing mediocrity from excellence.

A lot of us have this beautiful idea in our mind to be achievers of some sort. Each individual has their own definition of excellence. All of it leading to creating a happy space in our minds. But these remain mere ideas and definitions in our head.

We have a lot of clutter occupying our minds. Some of it even includes being less appreciative of others success. Being too bothered about right and wrong of others choices. A bunch of useless thoughts which in no way are going to be helping us in our pursuit of happiness. When we are done with all the wining about the world and people in it, we get on with our mediocre life.

We seem to believe that there is solace in the cocoon of mediocrity.
