Foreigner!

To go abroad was a big thing for me in childhood to think about; and the fact of me going out of India for a vacation was far from a dream. But I did see dreams of me being with my brother and mother in beautiful foreign land. I was very collected in a world where playing cricket was life. To see not a road other than the familiar countable roads was my life left to. I was sentimental of the lots. Now, I leave tomorrow evening to Bangkok; where my eldest brother shall meet me.
To start from, I can talk about the qualities of the west. You follow them, you try to act like them but you can't dream as big as they can. It is Indian mindset that "Videsh" is miles and miles away and to be there you really need to press upon life; work day and night to earn. Whereas the world is much bigger from the view of traveller's who have in held a passion to travel around the world. They work too, from one country to the other obviously following the rules and taking permission before carrying out the economic activities. There are "Bag packer's", who live life as it comes along. With fears, amazement and taking good experiences of life that come to them handy, but they have really insisted upon this life to see the wonders of the world.
Being aware is the greatest strength of an active man. Now, I start my travel journey, life routes on not my ways but by the ideology of my brothers who are equally concerned about me as much as they are about themselves. They want me to explore my roads to newer and diverse avenues. I need to imbibe that potential in me that what so ever be the fall, there is courage coming out of the pores of my skin. As if I become a man of character or simply a superman. I think I can be that and as I move along I will probably than not find a new dimension and add a gem to my living and a necklace to my dreams. Maybe dreams are merely not left upon the slumber to see, but the imaginations should also roll to see that far, with imaginative far sight.
You are slow, you tremble and are weak. But you are a part of this world, the flowing breeze. The air is of a gaseous state and so is it different from the sea which is of liquid state. You need to experience water too in order to fly more fearlessly. Having a know how or talent won't cause you harm but will give you wings even when those wings aren't in reality. Your mind shall form the picture, of the world and you will uplift your dreams and expectations from your life one fine day. So, closing this day's talk I enter into a newer today where the date is the one that is normal just the intensity to feel it in a different land is more. May each day be a learning experience and life glows like a lightening road towards glory.

Inclination still exists!

I have been writing for four years now on this blog and this new post comes after two and a half months. Writing from 2010 and now it is 2013; the emotion hasn't changed much. The intensity in writing might have been influenced. Call it learning little or more, it has been very special to me. Relating how ambitious I was when I started posting here times back and today. I am more settled and not merely flying in an unknown land. I know my writing style and so am I posting again. With little ambition although, but the emotion is so much concentrated in my words.
I remember those days and greatly honor, how I sent the link of my blog to my friends who were little concerned to read my articles but yes, doing that made me happy and was fun. But when I got no replies from anyone, I felt bad. Be it; at least it made me think a bit more, to feel the emotions somewhat more. I could climb a mountain peak at one moment just for the sake of being there. Well, just in my blogs; otherwise I wasn't aware how the peaks looked like. I knew that those existed and were very high. I got inspired to write, I saw the school editors doing that flawlessly; and so I followed them. To become a star is every boy's dream and so it would be of every girl. But here I talk about myself, being a little element of the big set; that involves all living beings. To reach at the top is one thing you greatly acknowledge and form a likeness towards more passionately and sincerely.
I failed in between these four years. I achieved little, but more I got was happiness from writing. I had to insist upon myself, to write on and to not stop. Many downfalls happened and left their patches in me. Life is such, I felt at one moment of life; and I feel the same even today. You get to learn from everywhere. But it hurts the most when people closer to you suffer because of your careless attitude towards life.
I don't want to write any further, but I don't want to stop either. My mind is desperate to give out all it can; whereas I think I got nothing new. I can sit back and think of the past moments, and that's what I do all the times. Let's see what the future holds, but for me the present needs to be lived. Because just yesterday I wrote that this life is so short lived and so each moment has to be lived. We will never be satisfied, but we need to seek peace one day; now be it today or when we are gone.
