It has been some time since I wrote! For a moment before I started writing here, I wondered if I would ever be able to write again!
It has been a long time since I got some leisure, to sit down in peace and write. Life kicked me around, and I swayed and flowed with the tide, sometimes resisting it, sometimes surrendering totally.
But I have been reading some excellent pieces of writing at other people’s blog – especially basicindia.net and maayajaal.blogspot.com
And I ask myself if I will ever be able to catch hold of that magic again? That charisma that once oozed out of my writing, which left people in awe?
And in this far-fetched town of Nalla Sopara (the farthest end of the Metropolis of Mumbai), where I sit in a cyber café, it is strange that I somehow do not bother about it.
Life, I have discovered, is not about words. It is definitely not about what we think of it, or how angry or how compassionate we are etc.
Infact, it does not matter at all. What if one fine day we were to realize that whether we worry or not, whether we care or not, there would be no change after all. Life will go on as it is. People will not change. Generations won’t change. Why! Even we ourselves cannot change!
And even if the mind will ask for a rational explanation, there seems to be no explanation! None!
Our lives are just miniscule specs in the eternal saga of time. And our egos explode for the world, rant at times or chant in silent prayer!
But all there is that matters in all this; is a single truth: NOW. Live it to the full and be present in the Now. Live it, like it, believe in it. There is no other thing that needs to be undone, no mysteries to be solved, nothing more to be learnt, nothing to be changed, no one to be befriended or wooed!
Pain will come, or joys… accept it. Surrender. And if you wish to be elegant, accept another word: Silence.
