The Myriad Shades of Life

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.

The Blame Game

The feeling of HUMAN SPECIES being a parasite is getting stronger every day. We all want progress, development but paying tenfold the price for it, seems like a vapid idea. We all have a business person in us, but, it is slowly turning into a thief. A thief of natural resources, other people’s virtue and soul.

I believe you all must have heard about ZAINAB, the girl who was raped and murdered in Pakistan or about the Delhi rape and murder case or the Mathura rape case or Jessica Lunsford case or Sandra Cantu case, even if I write for days at a stretch I won’t even come close to finishing the list. And the irony is that all the malefactors blamed their deed on the victim.

We humans always find a way to pin the blame on somebody else so, we stay clean. No matter if it is a crime against humanity or the course of daily life, taking responsibility is not our strong suit. We cannot just take and take and take, and make the other person completely hollow and not expect them to buzz. The buzzing will soon make us all deaf and we will still be crying, asking, what is it that we did wrong!

March 2017 Update

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).

Human Species is Ideal

There’s a mask that each of us wears, of the person we all want to be but not necessarily are. It’s just sometimes funny and sometimes daunting to see people try.
Try to be perfect
Try to be different
Try to be right
That’s something every one of us believes we are- right. We all have right opinions, we all make right decisions and we all are just right, always. That’s the race we are in, to be ultimately right. It’s a thing we all have built in.
In this race of being right, we all are becoming something that is not right.
We are becoming
Careless
Illogical
Unsentimental
Prude
Which is something not right, isn’t it!?
No, it is fine because we are saving our society from the ill components, aren’t we?

And what is our society, our society is something who yells gender equality *practices gender inequality*, it is where everyone gets freedom of speech and expression *that is why our criminal level is so high and increases every day*, it is something where logic isn’t required because we have superstition. It is where education isn’t required because we have religion. And the only place that deserves to stay clean is our homes *who cares about roads, parks etc.*

Our society and it’s rules are made by human species and it the ideal species. And the rules that we live by are not ancient, no, they do not belong to the 30’s because we live in 2017. And even if some rules are not compatible with the new generation so what, tradition is a real thing that we have to savour for as long as the humans live.

 

I think I lost the ‘Rule Book’

I think I lost the ‘Rule Book’,

There must be one. Right?

 

Otherwise, why do everyone expect certain things?

If they haven’t taught me, how am I to know!

 

I think I lost the ‘Rule Book’,

The one that had all the answers.

 

The answers to why can I do this,

And not that.

Why I have to be this,

And not that.

Why I should believe this,

And not that.

Why?

 

How could I lose it!

Wish I knew that it will be most used.

 

Why was I so careless?

Maybe the book had the answer.

 

Now, I am just something unhinged,

The book was the anchor.

 

Will I ever find it?

Help me find it.

Free Verse by Mortal in White

 

It felt so lonely here, amidst them all

All the loved ones were here and the dear ones too

If it was a feeling of a phase, I don’t know

No one tried nor did I and the feeling or phase seemed more perpetual

 

And then I moved from wretched to anxious and then to serene

 

Now I’m happy being alone, makes me content

All the noise is gone and I’m calm

Today I know the contrast in alone and lonely

I understand both, I respect both, I espouse both

 

I acknowledge happiness is awesome, but the Universe doesn’t revolve around a smile
