Why not take a crazy chance?


‘The most prolific period of pessimism comes at twenty-one, or thereabouts, when the first attempt is made to translate dreams into reality’ – Spot on!!

A worrywart always keeps looking for the flaw in every plan instead of looking at the endless horizon of opportunities beyond. It is so ironic that at 21, when we’re at that juncture in life when we are mature enough to comprehend what drives us in life, what we have visualized for ourselves, what is it that we crave for every single day, all that has made us who we are and who we want to be, we live in fear to chase those dreams. We choose to lord and subsist resembling those who choose to lead a comfy life filled with compromises than mould our luck and destiny to the silhouette of what looks perfect to our eyes.

Pessimism is only for those who do not have the fortitude to stand tall when there is a warning of a tempest, let alone when it strikes. It is mere testimony that you don’t have faith in yourself.

The manifestation of the visions you see, while asleep are way more beautiful when you’re living it. Why not take a crazy chance, especially when the chance is for you? Why not give love a chance when it might make life beautiful for you? Why not give your dreams a chance when they might spin the fairy tale for you?

I hope to see a world full of dreamers who have the guts to pursue their dreams than settle for the snippets of another’s dream.

Not a mere spectator.


Sometimes it just feels right to talk your heart out to certain people not knowing whether or not it is actually right, but the feeling gets you to pour your heart out. It could do two things – One, make you feel so much better without even knowing it or two, mess up your head contemplating whether or not you’ve done the right thing by trusting that person so much with something so delicate. When you’re on the listening end, it could again do two things, one, make you feel heaps better knowing that you could be there for someone and that you are trusted enough for someone to tell you something so personal or two, get mind-fucked thinking about all that he or she has been through and imagine yourself in that situation; the latter being the more frequent of the two. Here I was on the listening end and I have to say I was moved, moved by the strength of that girl who has been through so much. People that emerge out of that situation of having gone through 'shit' and want to live; who want to see the good in the world are the ones who have seen the possible worst. They are people who possess not only the determination and zeal to overpower every ghastly incident but fight it and live a life they’ve dreamed off. Those are the people who achieve and do great things in life. They are achievers, not mere spectators who feel helpless by circumstances.

A Bittersweet Recollection..


Something outlandish happened yesterday. It was bizarre, that feeling. Sometimes you can’t exactly comprehend the reason behind certain feelings and what exactly drives you into feeling them. I read somebody’s message in my inbox and out of the blue a thought crept up that maybe, I was living in a world of futility – Nobody and nothing meant anything. That feeling of emptiness is daunting, not because you’re alone in that feeling, but because you feel that you have nothing worth living for. It was then I wished, I lived in a world with no ‘ifs, ‘buts and ‘maybes. I was actually having a debate within me! I thought then, where is the point if you don’t have anything; to live for, to strive towards, to give all you have and ultimately to make it all worth it? In the deep confines of my mind, I knew that I was all alone in that feeling, but then I thought maybe not. There must be millions of people around the world that feel helpless and vulnerable every single minute. Then, what is it that differentiates all of us, because clearly nobody is the same? It is faith; Faith in oneself, one’s passion and one’s dreams. It comes down to one’s ability to stand tall unbeaten by the tempest that strikes. Relishing a victory in the dearth of a challenge is as good as winning the Cricket World Cup, playing against the Minnow teams. It’s not a feeling that you’d relish for long! Where is the point if you get everything easy and just as you demand it? The achievements that matter the most are the ones wherein nobody believes in it, but you, where people deride you, tell you every single day that you’re being an idiot to even think of it. Only people such would know the true essence of victory!
