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.

    1. Hi Rimly.Thanks for reading my post. Your blog is one amongst the few I follow and I enjoy reading your posts cause there is some kinda connect I guess. All I can say is keep writing... keep blogging.. keep rocking

  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.

    1. Hi Mak... Thanks mate.. true words spoken by you too...keep rocking

  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.

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


Words stringed together,
With more than a dash of emotion.

It all began with element of curiosity,
To unravel the unknown in each other.

Word for word were matched,
Unboxing the closet thoughts,
Like a flowing river, they exchanged thoughts unabashed.

Yet each held back some part of themselves,
It wasn't the end, but a beginning,
A beginning of a shadowed tale of mystic longing."
