Adieu 2015

To
The year 2015

Dear me, it is already thirty-first of December and you will be a part of the past from tomorrow. It was a fine journey as I flipped through the calendar month after month. As a resolution, I had planned to be regular with my writing dates and to an extent, it turned out quite fine actually above my expectations so I am somewhat happy.

Though the pace of life was steady in the beginning then somewhere I lost the grip and you seemed to have found wings around the second half of the year. On the personal front, I have to learn more and experiment less but then this year I hope to be even with your successor.

Either Way - It's still okay!

For I know myself better than
what the world may claim.
Calmness in me does not reflect apathy
Silence does not mean I am mute
I have an opinion
That I rather not waste
On deaf ears and 
Shut eyes
So
If you think, I am odd
Not part of the herd
It’s still okay!

Relative Reality

So, what is the in thing these days?

Trending things you know.

It seems everything that comes on prime time is supposedly called breaking news (even if it talks about lingerie or a pet food).

How do we know if what is observant through the media is actually the talk amongst the masses or just a pastime among the classes?

I saw this advertisement where they are wishfully suggesting paying each other through the app. Well, you see that is the wishful part of it all, as the majority of the population who are daily wagers have a ‘chaloo khaata’ with the grocer or else earn and eat. So are we actually moving ahead for the masses or…? I hope I am a bit clearer.

We cannot measure progress with a certain section of society. It is not about “you’ or “me” it is a cumulative effect of “We”. Few of those who have studied chemistry will remember, “The rate of a reaction is determined by the slowest step”

However, I had no intention to write this stuff but it just flowed through taking me off the path so will probably see next time as to what is trending!
