Thoughts triggered by a crash

Today is Tuesday, May 25, 2010! Three days back i.e on Saturday, May 22, 2010, 158 persons were killed when a plane of Air India's low budget carrier from Dubai with 166 on board overshot the runway at the airport in Mangalore.

The event left me haunting with several questions and many realizations! I woke up that day around 7:30 in the morning only to be welcomed by the ghastly pictures from the crash site on TV! The days that followed news papers carried many articles about the same. The media seemed to have a merry time cashing on the event! Not their fault every business is here to make profit!

But personally It only reinforced the fact that we human beings are very small at the end of the day, immaterial how successful and rich we may evolve to be in life! There are many things that you can't gain control on! Call it destiny or whatever word you choose!

Then again ..........

Well I had left this one incomplete.... today is 06 June 2010... It has been 12 days since I last attempted to write it & post it.....

So has my views changed over the last week? No!!!! Its time we try to realize man can try to play god with all his mind but Man can never be God.... creating synthetic cells and infusing life in them in a laboratory... claiming to create life.....I'm not referring to the god of any particular belief... for me he is the unseen omnipresent force...

Brutal materialistic world leaves no space for my creative thoughts at times... stuck between pursuit of happiness of free thoughts and the struggle to stay firm footed in the maddening world of corporate... my thoughts seem a little hazy... but in days to come the haze will disappear... clarity will emerge... I will find balance between the two world... after all my thoughts of heart don't translate into money... but my hard work does pay me for my survival...

Cheers and peace.... signing out ~ VJ

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.

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.
