I was travelling by the local train, was on my way back home. This was yesterday, 30th December. I said to myself the year of 2008 is coming to an end tomorrow. And here it is today, 31st December. The year was significant to me in many ways. It has passed off quickly, I hardly realised how the time has passed by. A new set of learning’s imbibed by my teacher – LIFE. I have been a good student I suppose if not the best. Honestly this blog may be too small to accommodate all the happening and the learning’s.

Over the years I have seen myself evolve as a person. Constantly changing, hopefully all these changes have been for my good. I don’t proclaim to be super intelligent or a saint. I’m just a student who has always been open to learn something new. I’m happy for whatever I have been blessed with. I become sad too, when greeted with trouble and failures. But then I find myself putting the pieces together and getting ready for the next phase. Failures are just a part of life not the end. I’m sure that the success is just round the corner.

Dreams we all dream, so do I. I’m sure I’ll live my dreams too. It may take some time for me to realise them. But delay is not death of dreams, is what I believe. We all go through tough times. Some might get a bigger share than others, but that’s alright. As long as one believes in one self, success is definite.

Acquaintances I have many, friends I have few. Not really a loner as I make myself sound at times. Everyone likes a bit of solitude I believe and so do I. Helps me understand myself better and handle myself better as well.

Talking about evolving as a person, we all do. But life’s so busy for all of us, we seldom realise it. Until some day an old friend whom you met by chance says “Dude you sound different, you have changed” and usually our response is “Really, I never felt that.” That’s because we never allowed our self to sit and think about it. We all use the term – “It’s a rat race out there!” which makes us all rats chasing the elusive cheese!

I watched the movie DASVIDANIYA yesterday. Impressive movie I would say. Not because I’m biased about Vinay Pathak, whom I regard as a gem of an actor in today’s time. It was impressive because it had substance unlike the usual running around the tree, bashing the villain kind of bollywood movie which do make substantial commercial gain.

Talking about DASVIDANIYA and its tale about how we fail to realise what we actually desire in life. Probably we were too busy with our everyday rigmarole of the rat race. That we end up missing and messing with few things we actually wanted to do but never been able to do. Only to realise it too late in life. But then my friends it’s never too late to realise those unshared dreams in our cupboard which you knew would always make you happy.

Our dreams might sound silly to others, but don’t fall prey to the cynicism. They are always plenty of them waiting to gun you down. The challenge is to rise above those cynicisms and stay away from becoming a hypocrite unlike the large community of them who co-exist with us in this world.

So here’s wishing everyone a successful and eventful year ahead to all. May we all realise our dreams. May we share the infectious smile! And yes hail peace! Cheers!

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.
