A piece of sky...

Much as i'd like to believe otherwise , there are moments where i do feel inadequate being alone. Times deeper than the immediacy of chasing a creepy-crawly, riding alone at night or those thundering rainy nights with no electricity.

In conversation with Kunal last night on similar lines, he asked in his familiar drawl "what do you want boss?" and i replied without hesitation "A piece of the sky!", i guess he was bewildered or perhaps thought he hadn't heard right. At that instant i did not have the energy to explain. I mulled over it, recognising the impact of the same even as the night wore on.

It's that elusive quality one lends to happiness, that all consuming feeling to own it while being unable to recognize its omnipresent nature. Its the recognition that life is here and now and yet we set milestones for the all elusive time for ourselves. Its the little joys we fail to recognise while waiting for that one big moment of happiness.

its my little piece of sky from the window or above me always there, not to be owned but just to be cherised for the here and now...

(if only i practice half of what i preach...)

There are times when I feel the smaller pleasures are too trivial and bigger never seem to happen....

There are times when I feel sorry for my self when I look at some one who can be delighted with an ice cream....

and I wonder was I like this as always ?

The answer is "NO”...smaller things… like the smell of freshly wet land after a rain…a nice walk…a good movie...made all the difference in my life....

Some times... all we need to do is unlearn!

With the way the real-estate price are moving in Bangalore, i think owning a piece of sky will be cheaper :)

There are 2 ways to beat the syndrome.

- Assume that the world is a matrix.That way,you can safely assume that you have no role to play in your own life.Its a preprogrammed code running for 27 years.

- Make ourselves busy 20/7 so that there is no free time to think about life.Buy a vehicle,never travel in a bus,never sit alone...that kind of stuff.

But you know what - musing over life is quite good.A lethal dose of the same for the past 7 days and a terrific trekk has made me quit work.Getting deep into it might result in more calamities. :-)
