Chasing Big Apple Called Life And Other Random Ramblings


Nothing beats speaking and writing truth. But alas it’s seldom spoken and more rarely written. It’s not a crime to expect abundant adulation for what one believes is true talent. But then I think of it again is it selfish to feel so? Absolutely not!

Being born human it’s natural for one to expect returns. A little bit of support sure helps. I think again trying to flow along with the thoughts that emerge in my mind. It’s simply relieving when one simply expresses thoughts just the way they appear in one’s mind.

A lot of people say and true in the real world you are not good enough if you don’t know how to sell your thoughts. But I ask my soul tonight, how true is it? I hear words, - “It’s never worth to sell ones soul for a few moments of joy. The Joy felt is no different than finding a mirage in a hot and sunny desert.”

So now the question is why do I write then? Why do I express these thoughts brewing deep within my heart? I hear feeble words from within – “I’m human after all! What good are thoughts unexpressed, what good are they when not shared?”

It’s much better to be appreciated or be criticized for words and thoughts that you believe in. Than being spoken about for words written by you but are just words that you don’t believe in. Words written with the mere intention to please the masses and words written about things you believe in and loved by the masses are two different aspects. It’s for you to choose.

Thoughts are many which find no words to be expressed. Many a thoughts fail to find words; many a thoughts fail to be depicted in their true emotions.

Hypocrites! Not just the people around, but we ourselves are at times. It’s no crime to be heard by few souls amongst the billions who co-exist. For sure this life of ours is mortal. All that remains is memory when we are gone.

  1. How true Vijay. We all express out thoughts truthfully most of the time, at least I do but they are woven with some strands of fantasy too. I write because I need to let out all the pent up emotions and once I do I feel so much more at peace. And when it is commented on there is a kind of high. I think we all love people to acknowledge us but most importantly it is the letting go off what you feel through your words.

  2. True VJ. What good are thoughts unexpressed? Nothing. In fact, it might be pain, unfelt. It might be happiness, shelved.
    Loved the way you expressed your deep thoughts VJ.

  5. Hello Vijay.
    So true. I am one who loves to write. To write is to feel. To feel is to live. To live is to love. There is so much of me in my writings but I put it across in such a way as to leave the reader wondering. Nicely expressed. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I am sorry for taking so long to visit your place....its wrong on my part,inspite of being the founder of my group BLOGGERS REFLECTION,I took my time.
    And I am happy I did so today,after a very long time,I am reading something that is "real"....I have truly believed that writing releases stress for me,and bis an outlet for my emotions,but off late I stopped doing so,because I realized I was writing to please others,for blog traffic,and for fame,and this made me feel so low and degrading...After reading your post I am feeling like making a come back again....Thank u for this one!!!

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.
