  • Everyone as a kid dreams of becoming a star one day. Every one of us has a secret crush on someone. I wasn't an exception. I too had dreams of being a knighthood who with his bravery and charisma steals the heart of a princess and then the 'Happily Ever After'. Soon I met myself and then the process of transition from a kid to a man began. Though not strictly speaking a man but a grown up kid who strives for a place for himself to fit in this highly competitive world of artists, scientists, technocrats, bureaucrats, politicians and so on.

    I was too small to understand the complexity of human behavior but I didn't gave up and I still observe patterns to find what is that or those thing/s that we really care about and look for in this world. What makes us happy that we forget who, where or what we are and what makes us sad that we stop caring why, when or where did that happen. I was often confused with the life forms of various species and their evolution with time but I was always amazed to see how beautifully they have emerged to fight with constant changes in environment. I have a learnt a lot from them like how they care for their siblings and how they teach each other with their so called 'code language'.

    Life is lot more than we see through our naked eyes. We often become self-centered when we talk about life. We start thinking about our inheritance and our evolution since the first ever cell on earth. We look for every possible way to make our stay comfortable and cozy in this world. Money is what we strive for or at least not then the means to earn that money. It took me a while to understand how we made ourselves slave to immaterial things and I started shedding each one of them from my life. For instance I live in a place where average temperature is 42 degrees but I choose not to install an ari cooler or an air conditioner. Looking at some very hard facts about natural resources coal and petroleum are become scarce and the world is heading to a day when all the reserves will get over and we would have no fuel to feed our luxury cars and no electricity to give us cool atmosphere in the days of summer. If not everyone, at least I can make a small sacrifice to provide our next generation the beautiful world we share a part of.

    Every second I think of the future I see more and more complexities swirling up in my head but I won't back down and keep on unwinding them. They provide me strength, They provide me inspiration to move on ... move on to make this world a better place.
