Movies: Reality in jeopardy!

test2blogo

Don’t live your life like they do in movies.

Your life is much more worth than anyone else’s imagination captured in a three hour reel. You gotta filter out the illusion from reality.

There might be background music in those man made moments but there is a man made out from moments.

A walk in the rain without a stolen kiss , a white hair before your 20’s,too much traffic on the road, a dent on the car, fucked up ending of a popular TV show, a dress gone out of stock, a sale turned into a disaster and every tiny thing hurts in real life. A hero as well as a villain both die in reality rather the former one dies much younger. The right one gets nothing sometimes, the evil one wins too, people fail, talent goes to waste, people are stuck in cobwebs of life.We regret the ones we love and even more the ones we didn’t.

Hard work is sometimes the only solution and start-ups don’t always succeed. In reality, movies are extracted from it, not vice versa.

Life is always a change, it’s never constant. No one says in reality, like they say in the movies, “And they lived happily ever after”. There are ups and downs, ups disguised as downs. Businesses don’t bloom like flowers in the garden, the only time travels and flashbacks we have is in our memories and the only category of homo sapiens that can bleed for days and still survive is females.

Life is different and it is difficult. Like if me writing this post was to be showcased in a movie, it would have been in a few seconds and in one go with motivational background score ending with a voice narrating the same to the viewers. But see, here you are digging through the words, wondering or probably abusing the piece of shit.

Be Real not Reel.

 

Hey there!

It’s been a long long time since I last posted here. Gives me chill seeing my previous posts and writing this one.

Not many of you would have noticed that I started writing this blog in mid March of the last year ending with the no. 4 (2014) with my last post being in ending November of the same year.

Life and premonitions never go hand in hand. Blink of an eye and the world is different.

Anyhow, while I had been on the roller coaster of life, I tried not to let my personal life cast a dark shadow over my desire to write, though the mediums and platforms changed.

From writing posts and statuses on Orkut, Facebook as a kid to pouring my teenage heart on wordpress, I went on to kickstart magazine of my own named “Eunoia” which means  beautiful thinking and a well mind. It was a college magazine and is still running in the premises though I graduated an year ago. 

A 9 to 6 job and a lover to fill my mind and heart, life had been a bit rewarding while being equally cruel. Being in and out of love enriched my experience and transitioned me to a bittersweet(amateur) poetess.

These days  its me, my poems and instagram. The moving on phase has been long and challenging. Yet I try to grow day by day from the bittersweet memories of past.

A glimpse of the poems and photographs:

 

 

Title: Quotidien Morose

It’s one past midnight

with you on the phone

Few words and a drunk snores

leaving the other voice in a sleepless mode

Maybe it’s you or just the flashbacks

When will you grow past my nostalgic mind?!

Creeping memories

Moving on thoughts

Life has become a traffic jam of quotidien morose

Dripping water yet so dry

Polluted feelings in a trapped mind

Should I try again or

just lay

wide awake in my bed all night.

 

I am hoping to continue writing here as well. But if you like my poetry, please feel free to eavesdrop 😉

 

What is love?

Love is merely a four letter word for most of the people and it can’t mean the same for everyone at the same time. Call it the euphemism for destiny or destruction, it is something every soul ponders to and wishes to be in. Yes, you can either be in love or stay without it but you can never be with love because it’s something that’s within and you can never find it in something else and if you think you do have love in something or someone else, think again, it might be just a mere illusion. No doubt, everyone tries to find love in someone or something but to me a lover is someone who makes you feel everything and nothing at all, but the love is actually inside you that makes you feel that way, a lover is just a harbinger.

It’s not something only stuck in your heart, it’s in your eyes that see, your hands that touch, skin that feels and moreover in the lips that speak. It’s a language, a medium of expression and a token of power wrapped up in the softness of a smile and warmth of a teardrop.

Love is yours! Your Hopes, Your Dreams, Your Everything!
You gotta find it within you.

Parents’ Day

Ever wondered what second Sunday of May and third Sunday of June have in common? Both of them are dedicated to our parents, though each one to one of them.

But then why don’t we have a combination of both and celebrate a PARENTS’ DAY. It makes more sense to me because our life is incomplete without any one of them.

I am glad that I’m not the only one who has ever thought about it and I’m proud to say that my thoughts coincide with the former President of U.S.A. Bill Clinton who declared fourth Sunday of every July as parents’ day.

Also,in South Korea, it is held on May 8th.

Nevertheless the United Nations proclaimed June 1 to be the Global Day of Parents “to appreciate all parents in all parts of the world for their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship”.

Also it is interesting to  know that Dianthus Caryophyllus, commonly known as Carnations or clove pink, flowers that symbolize Parents’ Day are given to parents by children in celebrating Parents’ Day in South Korea.

I hope everyone after reading this celebrates Parents’ day at least once every year as a tribute to their parents.

Sharing is not always caring!

“I just ate a blueberry sandwich”, “Oh my god, here’s my new blackberry :D”

“Just bought a Burberry Scarf–feeling delighted”, “In love with Rachel Berry…. #glee”

and there can be thousands of berries being shared in the world of social networking media.

It’s a fact that the first thing people do as soon as they wake up in the morning is not brush their teeth or read newspaper but pick up their devices, turn them on and check their social media updates.

Life has become so technology dependent that i wonder if people would start conceiving digitally someday.

Anyway coming back to the present, i see numerous updates on my facebook home, hundreds of tweets, instagram posts etc. just dedicated to the daily stuff people engage in and other similar people do actually read and promote it. I mean is it necessary to forcefully dump your daily routine on a public platform where people are least bothered about you having a banana pie or harlem shake! Moreover, the fact that people read your updates is not because it’s interesting or admirable, but it’s flashing on their page again and again as you thank each and every soul donating a precious million dollar like over the same.

On the contrary, i am not against social networking , rather i myself find it quite useful sometimes, it keeps you connected to the world while you are on the go but it doesn’t mean you let your online profile act as a GPS fitted over you.

Seriously i wish people use their online profiles as much wisely as they do with their bank accounts, which everybody knows exists but not everyone is required to know everything.

Think, Introspect, and again think before your any activity on the internet because sharing is not always caring.Image
