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.

Experiencing NEW YEAR’s EVE

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.

5 Things Every Human Need​s

Comfortable Outfit

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.

A Book

Books are not just stories, some are filled with life,
Some are with lessons or with the light to change your life.

Energizing Song

IMG_4362

Some breath music, some live music.
Even silence is music, the music whimsical.

Happy Place

IMG_5335

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. 

People Only See What They Understand

I recently found an explanation to keep myself sane and not get annoyed or angry, I think. People can only see what they understand including me.

 

When someone makes a joke about being depressed they don’t understand the complex and dying scenario behind depression. I know all of us are dying but some of us can really feel the death and to understand that, one needs to see it and to see it, they have to understand it.

 

When we casually say ‘grow up’ the ulterior motive behind saying that is either ‘don’t bug me’ or ‘DON’T BUG ME.’ I know it is easier to look away and a lot easier to forget. But is it something that is a solution. I know you will feel guilty for looking away when that person is no more around, I know you will try to educate others when that person is no more around, I know you will blame yourself when that person is no more around but that person is no more around, whatever the reason.

 

Why do we want people to ignore it or just shake it off?

The answer is simple, I think, we do not understand it so we do not see it.

 

We don’t see:

People committing suicide

Our world getting darker

People asking for help

Plants dying

Air getting smokier

Our body getting weaker

The earth dying

 

Right?

 

 

Living Like Humans

Time flies like water,
Water flows like rocks.

We used to be one,
Now, one is just a number. 

We thought we could grow together. 
But looks like one of us got bored.

We waited, did we?
We should have… maybe

Leaving someone, something is a task
A task no one ever wants to perform, 
But it’s just a way
Of living, living like humans.

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).

Little and Less

Nights are little darker,
Days are less brighter.

There’s a mask on the table,
It’s not part of my costume.

I love these people,
I respect these people. 

Don’t force it,
Don’t force me.

What if I become it,
Something that I will, regret. 

Everything used to be clear, crystal,
Now it’s something hazy,
And foggy.

Nights are little darker,
Days are less brighter.

I am, little less ME.
