Through the looking glass

Topic by Daily Post:

Daily post said : You can always write about how you write. Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to become a writer. But, most importantly, I wanted to write. Honestly speaking, writing really made my Life worth living, made my Life interesting. After all, writing is another form of expressing. Through writing, I’ve learnt that you needn’t always use your voice to voice your opinion. I remember the first time I read “Alice in Wonderland” , I was 10 years old and even back then, the character of Mad Hatter fascinated me. Mad Hatter, to me, represented human emotions. Every time he put on a different hat, it seemed like he was expressing a new feeling. And I can remember how amazed I was because I was thinking “How come humans can express so many feelings?” That’s when the screen on my “looking glass” changed. I began to see things in a whole new perspective. Every time I faced an absurd situation in Life, I would pick up the book and just start reading it. And I think that’s what the book taught me. That’s what the story taught me. An absurd situation in your Life can help you gain more wisdom than a normal one.

So, every time I think of the characters in the story, that’s what inspires me to write. That’s what tells me that no matter how many surprises Life has in store for you- Good or Bad- if you look at it through the looking glass, you’ll find out that – Life is Wonderful.

“In a Wonderland they lie,

Dreaming as the days go by,

Dreaming as the summers die:

Ever drifting down the stream-

Lingering in the golden gleam-

Life, what is it but a dream?”

— Lewis Carroll (Through The Looking Glass)

Why am I here?
February 22, 2011

I was inspired by Cory William and a post by Nandita Prakash to ask myself a question “Why am I here?” I’d very much like to know the reason why I’m here. In the world. Without the answer to my question I feel like  I am a nomad. I feel like i’m just wandering without any reason. Why do I wake up every morning and sleep every night only to wake up again to the same world? Same Life? Same people? We go about our daily lives just going about our daily lives. Honestly, I can’t remember the last time when I did something for the first time. I can’t remember the last time I tried to figure out my Life. But I guess that’s how it is meant to be. I guess all that is a part of a bigger plan that the supreme power has in store for me. I may not know what that is, and I think we just, sort of, know what it is at the right time, at the right moment what our purpose in Life is. We all want to aim high, reach for the stars, we want to become Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers so and so, but have we ever, even once, want to become mere humans? Have we even tried to become humans? I mean, yes, we are humans, speaking literally, but is it all that there is to the word “Human”? “Human” is what i’ll try to be till I know my real purpose in Life. “Human” is what i’ll try to be till I know why I am here. And I don’t want to know what the exact answer will be to my question. I’ll just wake up every morning, sleep every night, survive another day, live my Life and dream, till I know the answer. Till then, I’ll dream of a world where there’s no violence, hatred, destruction or injustice. A world where you know who you are. A world where you know why you are there. A world, where, when one asks you “Who are you?’ You answer ” I am Human.”

Billie Jean is waiting
February 22, 2011

I just found this video on YouTube today. Its called “Billie Jean is waiting” by Henry Gorman- a tribute to Michael Jackson.  Beautifully sung, every line made a tear fall from my eyes. Sometimes, I just feel like he’s still in the world. Sometimes, I feel like the burial never happened, like the day never came when I was too shocked to move when I heard the news. And sometimes, I wish it could stay that way. I wish that feeling could remain forever. Like he’s still in Neverland, playing with his children and telling them about the boy that never wanted to grow up. I remember watching the interview where Martin Bashir meets Michael Jackson- when he told him that he wanted to be like Peter Pan. And every single time I picture that scene in my mind- Michael climbing the tree….” I never want to grow up” .. “I want to be like Peter Pan”.. reality hits me hard. And sometimes even when I know that he’s no more, I feel happy for him. I feel happy because I guess he is in a much better place. I don’t know whether its heaven or its simply the place where one goes between two births. I couldn’t care less. I just know that its a much safer place than this world. No wars, hatred, violence. Its what he wanted the world to be like.

Now, when I listen to the song, I realize that he’s still here. I realize that he can never be gone. He can never be gone unless he’s forgotten. And that’s something that will never happen.

Turn back the hands of Time
February 20, 2011

If I could turn back the hands of time, would I change anything? People always think of what they would do if they could go back in Time. What if they do? I always question myself. Would that change anything? Would that make a difference in my Life? Would it change the way I live? To be honest, if I could turn back the hands of time, I’d do a lot of things I couldn’t do at that particular moment. The thing is, I don’t want to. I guess that’s what makes us human. I guess that’s what makes us only human. Listening to R.Kelly’s “If I could turn back the hands of time” and I was just wondering “What if I could really change something in the past?” and I already knew the answer. If I really want to change something in the past, I need not travel back in time. I would change it now .


My iPod

Topic #31 by Daily Post:

One piece of technology I can’t live without is my iPod. I was watching “The Book of Eli” yesterday and I realized that music can help you survive even in the most horrible situations. I like music [who doesn’t?] and I know that I can survive without food and water if there’s music with me. Another piece of tech that I can’t live without is my mobile phone. It may prove to be very helpful, you know. I guess if I keep writing, the list will go on, so i’ll stop here :P

Music is what feelings sound like.

So I should say, word press is really cool. =) I never enjoyed blogging very much only because I got bored of it after sometime or probably because I didn’t like the theme. I currently like my blog appearance and I’m really cool with the variety of choices Word Press has to offer. Nice going Word Press.
