This wouldn’t make much sense to everyone. But right now, it makes a lot of sense to me. May be tomorrow or the day after, it won’t.

Someone insists that you change certain things about yourself. Making a few changes in my lifestyle is something I would do ONLY IF - I am getting something better by doing that. I would be lying if I said I haven’t changed anything about myself in the past years.

There are some people who mean more to you than others. In those cases, making changes is NOT a compromise. To put it simply - you are focussing on what is more important to you – what means more to you. Then it’s not like you are giving up anything at all. You are simply working towards getting what means more to you.

It could be something as trivial as travelling economy class instead of business. Or something as pointless as not buying a new pair of shades every month. The nature of the change is hardly of any relevance.

It’s good if the feeling is reciprocated. i.e. X means the world to Y. Would be extremely ideal if Y means the world to X as well (Assumption 1)

Coming back to the point I was trying to make:

(Speaking only for myself here) Some changes are made. I am the best ONLY in my element. Give me something to do, that comes natural to me - the result will definitely be the best. It will be effortless on my part. If I were to do something I am passionate about – the result would definitely be the best.

At the same time, if I have to do something I am good at, but not as much passionate about – the result would be good, but obviously NOT the best. You have taken me out of my element. I can try to be good. I can work on making it better, but it simply can’t be the best.

Yes, I can be “the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be” (Crtsy: Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart) – BUT only in my element. If there have been any changes, the balance is lost. I can no longer be the BEST, simply because the environment or my element has undergone some change.

The balance can be rather easily restored ONLY if the Assumption 1 (mentioned above) holds true.

Yeah, just in one those moods. Left the sheesha joint early today. Should have stayed a little longer.

I would see a shrink. But then, who is going to help out the shrink after he has had a peek inside my head?!


It may sound absurd.. but don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed

I may be disturbed, but won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream

it's not easy to be me

The most difficult phase of life is not when no one understands you; Its when you don’t understand yourself…

Haan yaar. We could have stayed at the sheesha place. But then.. bhabhi bhi teri wait kar rahi thi. Khaana bhi lena tha, aur phir, there were other things too.

Hota hai, chalta hai.. duniya hai.

For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gained, you lose something else….Its about your outlook towards life…You can either regret or rejoice…

You can either regret or rejoice.

Well, I try to move on, but it's rather difficult to remain unaffected. Not a robot. Not yet anyways.

Unfortunately - I do have a heart.

and even worse - I have a stupid mind which keeps running in circles trying to make some sense of everything that's happening.

haNsanaa hii jiivan hai haNsate hii jaanaa hai

har pal jo guzar jaaye daaman ko to bhar jaaye

ye soch ke jii leN to taqdiir saNvar jaaye

is umr kii raahoN se KhushiyoN ko churaanaa hai

haNsanaa hii jiivan hai haNsate hii jaanaa hai

kahate haiN jise jiinaa duniyaa ko sikhaa deN ham

ye aaj to apanaa hai kal bhii apanaana hai

haNsanaa hii jiivan hai haNsate hii jaanaa hai

Ruk jaana nahin tu kahin har ke, Kanto pe chal ke milinge saaye bahar ke..

O Raahi... O Raahi...(

Sooraj dekh rook gaya hai, tere aahe jhook gaya hai..

Jab kabhi aise koi mastana, nikale apani dhoon me divana...

Sham suhani ban jate hain, din intezar ke.. O raahi.. O raahi..

Sathi na karavan hai, ye tera imtihaan hai...

Yunhi chala chal dil ke sahare, karati hai manzil tujhko ishare...

Dekh kahin koi rok nahi le, tujhko pukar ke.. O raahi.. O raahi..

Nain aansu jo liye hain, ye rahon ke diye hain..

Logon ko unka sab kuchh deke, tu to chala tha sapne hi leke..

Koi nahi to tere apne hain, sapne ye pyaar ke... O raahi O raahi...

Ruk jaana nahin tu kahin har ke, Kanto pe chal ke milinge saaye
bahar ke..

O Raahi... O Raahi...
