Yeh duniya...

Yeh duniya agar mil bhi jaaye to kya hai....
If I had the world what would i do with it....

dreams flow across the fabric of this, my universe
i wish i could be free of the bindings and fly free
then i wonder what would i do by flying free
where would i go where i could be free
my connections are here
how would the social animal cope with solitude?
life is built around these connections
so what if these very connections corrupt the thought
so what if these connections cause pain and suffering
... they also give fleeting joy.. .joy which makes it all worthwhile.

this whole idea of being free stems from the inability to make a change to the world around me
life is like one video game.
the only catch is that I’m playing for keeps
this thought of breaking free is like a CHEAT CODE
the question that comes to the rambler is whether it’s worth it to win a game after cheating
the question takes on another dimension since the competition in the game is also ME

so what would I do if I had the world at my beck and call... on its knees in servitude to the bald man...what would challenge me then.... what would i aspire to do next... would it corrupt me as the saying goes about absolute power??
but if i had the power then any use of that power... could it be construed as misuse or simply part of doing what the job profile required? Who would question the use of such power? How can absolute power corrupt absolutely when the use of the term “absolute” puts to rest any skepticism on the validity of the action?

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.

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…
