The colour wheel has been arranged in a harmony, to suit the nature of colours and to please the eyes, just like the shades of life. We all know life in primary colours, there’s childhood, full of wonder and rapt. Then comes adulthood, time of passion and ambition. At last, comes old age, where the light starts to dim and the sound starts to fade. Is this all? No.
What makes life, life, are the secondary and tertiary colours, the colours you don’t know of or don’t think about.
My favourite colour is Lavender, it is grayish purple or pinkish magenta or pale bluish indigo. For me, it is a feeling, lavender is hope or happiness or just life.
My Lavender can be your teal or turquoise or cardinal. Life is made of myriad shades, so live it in Myriad Shades, do not get stuck in the Red and Green and Blue. Live before you run out of shades.
I greeted the New Year with all the positivity I could find in me and planned the heck out of it. It’s only been a week and I have already read a book and have watched five movies. The New Year always brings a great promise, a promise that the dreams will come true and things will be exactly the way I wish them to be. I know it isn’t true or even healthy to believe, nevertheless, this is my reflex. I am one of those people who hardly stay awake after ten O’clock, but, there is something glamorous about the New Year’s Eve.
So, this year, for the very first time, I experienced the cliched moment of striking the clock twelve and feeling Utopia can very well be earth, with my friends. We weren’t in a club, soaked in liquor but in bed, discussing the spiritual realm.
The possibility of souls being trapped in purgatory or possibly they don’t or can’t leave because there is no afterlife, everything is here and now, no there and later. The possession of the human body and the extent of its destruction. There are so many strands being tied around our neck, I don’t understand why we choose to add to it. Anyway, there were a lot more to our skull session than just, spiritual realm.
And soon the yackety-yak turned into yawning and, the New Year was here.
An armour it is, to survive this world.
The world where humans live, not humanity.
But I see those who are different, want to change.
Make the species mean something, again.
Books are not just stories, some are filled with life,
Some are with lessons or with the light to change your life.
Some breath music, some live music.
Even silence is music, the music whimsical.
Places can make you different, can change you.
Some stay with you, in memories or every day.
Finding one that makes you shiver, is a miracle.
Miracle worth holding on to.
Thirst to Be Better
Live, don’t just be,
Live in a way so serene, that your yesterday smiles and the tomorrow be
something, make your name not just a name but a name behind names.
March was a month full of an empty feeling and somehow fulfilling at the same time.
I went on a road trip with one of my closest friends which was really amazing and something we’ve been planning for months.
I finished my creative writing course and now I feel a little bit professional. The class was an amazing and enlightening experience. In the class, I met so many intellectually developed and mentally skilled people. It was really hard to say goodbye and to accept that we won’t be discussing topics in the class every day.
I saw the Beauty and the Beast (La Beaut et la Beast) with my sister and it was amazing. I mean Emma Watson and a Disney production, it had to be amazing.
There was a lot more activity in the month but above events were a little more significant.
Mentally- I feel refreshed and ready to try writing in a different way.
Physically- I think it was the best month yet.
Conclusion- There’s always tomorrow (I hope).
If I was unseen, I’d disappear through these walls
Never knew why couldn’t fit into these halls
The agony of torment and the feeling of eerie, couldn’t get rid of these
Didn’t ever felt at ease.
If I was unseen, wouldn’t be knee deep in this scene
If I was unseen, I’d not be in their pitfall
Drowning in the ocean scared of the untimed maul.
I could fly through the sky, wouldn’t worry about a thing
With my strength torn-out nobody could hear when I screamed.
I held onto hope
I held onto dream
You still didn’t come, I was alone amidst them all
If I were unseen, I’d be weightless and they’d fall.
I have been part of so many discussions and sometimes even debates trying to decide what is normal and what is not. This question has been a lot on my mind recently with everything that is going on in the world, in the countries and in our cities. I googled normal to know what the majority opinion of the word was and I found out that normal is something which completely depends on the standards and norms of the society *I knew that*. So, basically normal is something that stops you from being different, trying new things and just going crazy. Anything that is not traditional or has not been done by anyone in about a gazillion years is not normal.
I won’t pretend to be an extremely open-minded person because it is something I am not, I do have some pretty strong opinions and choices and I like to think they are reasonable *just like everybody else*. For starters I hate smokers not because smoking is bad for their health but mostly because it is bad for non-smokers like me, I get that you enjoy taking puffs of toxins and pretend to be cool but I don’t want to get sick because somebody else is trying to be cool. The list of my intolerance is pretty long but I do know that everyone is different no matter how similar or normal they try to look or be. I also know that no matter how different opinions and choices everyone has we all have to live together in this world.
We are part of a galaxy which is made up of millions of things and we only know about 8 planets and out of those planets we just have 1 planet on which we can exist and even on that 1 planet we have 7 continents and 196 countries in which 7 billion people live and we call all this- normal. Our body is made up of numerous veins and bones and we consume a gas to survive and it is all- normal. We experience 2 kinds of season and 4 kinds of weather in a year and our major power source is a big ball of superhot plasma which is 150 million km away from us and it is all- normal. Nothing is normal and everything is normal, it is just about the perspective.
Ever wondered about how the stars were made? I know the scientific explanation but what exactly was the purpose of those shiny little things in the sky which are numerous gases and miles away from us. I like to believe they are a ray of hope *I know it sounds cheesy but truth is truth* and something that unites this world together because no matter where you are, you can always see the stars *and other stationary objects but you get the idea*. I have always loved the idea of just lying in an open ground and watching the starry sky which is brightly lit. But I live in a city, city full of extremely bright lights which somehow overpowers the natural beauty of stars and the idea of watching that starry sky becomes more of a fantasy. It is a fantasy that gives me extra fuel on worthless days. Days when I don’t feel like myself or days when I don’t feel like getting out of bed or days when I just feel like ignoring the world.
I have always been that person with the most different bags and strong opinions and extreme headbands and ardent principles. There were several times when I was so unsure of myself and wondered if it’s good to be the person I am *this bold and opinionated*. I know it seems mindless to worry about such useless things like bags or shoes but these useless things are what makes our personality. You are your choices, you can be considered something only if you are allowing it. And all this just made me realise that this world is like that extremely harsh city light and somehow we as stars just lose our natural light. But the most important thing is that no matter what happens we have to shine brighter than those harsh lights and help each other embrace our natural self. Everyone is opinionated on this planet and maybe on other planets too and that’s okay.
Everyone is free to be whomsoever they want to be and enjoy whatever they like but we should not forget that we share this planet with more than 7 billion humans. Our opinions and decisions affect everyone so it is time to just stop blaming the society or the world because we always forget that we are the society and we make this world. A lot of humans have worked really hard just so we could enjoy the world as it is today and I think we owe it to them, us and future generations to not degrade it like we are currently doing and be careless with it. We have come so far from the times when we had to rub stones together to generate fire so why are we trying to go back to that cave people lifestyle. The best we can do in current situations is just be a magical sea unicorn and leave all the stupid problems behind and radiate as bright as we can. Please be nice to each other and try to be the best version of yourself.
