musing

I wonder

Yes - I do a lot of wondering - eyes open and eyes closed. I have some answers too.


I wonder.....

when we will own a car. (Nov 08)
when someone will understand me.....
why we become normal within 2 days of a bomb blast...
why we make things bigger than they are and then we don't know how to handle them.
why I feel sad and then the eyes moisten .....despite all efforts to the contrary
why i follow the fleeting images of grandeur when all that is required is efficient simplicity.
how my money will multiply. (invest invest invest)
how my paunch will go down. (jog jog jog)
how much money is enough to live happily. (wrong question)
what is my calling in life. (Its definitely not selling HIV diagnostic kits)
what my children will think of me when I'm old and bald. (old farty geezer still thinks he is 18)
where I want to be 10 years from now....
who can help me get my bearings right. ( i keep looking for folks smarter than me but none seem to know)
what it'll be like to hold my daughter in my arms close to my heart.... even though I know that one day she'll go away.
what my parents think of me
if I will see great grand children. ( i soooooo wish they could play in my lap)
if there is anything like true love
if i'll go to hell or hell........

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.
