Of Abstract Thoughts And Concrete Words

After frantically searching for my phone for almost five minutes,
“Ma, where is my phone”
“I don’t know. Where did you keep it?”
“ I was talking with Swathi and I was sitting in the Verandah on the swing...”
“Check  if you’ve left it there”
 After 30 seconds
"Yes. It’s there. Thank you Ma  :-)“

I have this habit (my sister says it’s an annoying habit) of walking to my sister, asking her a question(a doubt) and even before she could open her mouth to respond, I myself would have answered the question and I would tell her thanks and walk away. Something similar to this.

“Akka, I have a doubt”
She clears her desk and makes some space for my book .
“Tell me.”
“In this comprehension,  the central idea according to me is option A, but the answer is given as option C”
“What is it about?”
“Well, I feel it is A because of ....(I justify why I chose Option A)
If it has to be Option C may be its because.....(And I proceed to think from the Author’s point of view)
Which is why, Now I feel Option C has to be right. Thank you Akka :-) “
“Get Out”

At The Crossroads of Life!

(P.S. When my Mom read this post, She felt really bad that I was in such a confused state. That is when I clarified that, I was in a similar situation, Though not to the extent portrayed here. This was just to show how one would feel, standing at the crossroads of life, And I've written this in the first person, to give it a more personal feel. And for all those wonderful people who assured me that the best would happen, Thank you so much , It means a lot! )

( For the past few days I'd been thinking of what I would be doing in the future. That is when I came across this wonderful quote. "When you need to make a decision, toss a coin. That way, you would know what your heart hopes for, when the coin is in the air". Wish our decisions were as simple as that! )

My mind keeps wandering.
I’m not sure which direction to take.
Should I just go with the flow?
Or set a path for myself?
Should I take the Road Less Travelled,
Or look for something secure?
Should I let things happens the way they would,
Or define the way things should happen?

'Sorry' and 'Thank You'

A friend of mine never forgets to boast of his extensive vocabulary.  He used to say, if words were money, He would be a millionaire. But I would call him poor, since, despite having a good vocabulary, he would never use the words ‘Sorry’ and ‘Thank you’.

Friendship and the definitions of friendship have evolved with time. .

Some of my friends remark that I sometimes behave very formal when I’m with them. And they come to that conclusion because I keep saying ‘Sorry’ and ‘Thank You’. I tell them that I value my friendship and I take care to see to it that I don’t take anything for granted at any point and I’m just making it known to them as well. I take extra care even in small things because I want to make sure I’m not hurting anyone inadvertently. Since its always small things done in haste that makes a lot of difference and leads to a lot of misunderstandings. I’d rather be cautious than to be at loggerheads for some trivial, insignificant stuff. That extra bit of caution they say is formal, I’m Sorry. I can’t help it.

When Our Passion Needs A Break!

It’s been more than a week since I updated my blog.10 days in fact. Somehow I couldn’t think of anything to write for the first few days. Even after I made a note of a few ideas I somehow couldn’t get myself to sit and write it down in detail. I realized it would be wise to abandon the attempt, rather than force myself to write something just for the sake of it.

Just when I was thinking of this, a thought struck me. I write because I like to. That is why I started a blog and I continue to write about things which catch my attention and which make me think. My blog is a collection of my thoughts and not just a place where I vent out my thoughts against the society. All said and done, I chose to write and I can write whenever, wherever and whatever I want to. It’s entirely my call. There is no compulsion. So when I don’t feel like writing I have all the liberty to just stay away from it.
