Characters of the P Company: Chand

Not just because of her moon like face,

but also because of how Hasti refer to her as,

A girl in her early twenties,

Hailing from a humble background,

with an aspiration to make it big in life,

and

gift her parents a house, they have always aspired for,

she happens to be a love interest for not one but many in the office space,

Graceful to the core,

She manages to look extremely pretty in both traditional and western attire,

No wonder, Hasti has gone gaga over her!

It’s not often that she parties,

But if she does,

She would get tipsy enough to ask everyone leaving,

ghar pahuch ke zaroor message karna”, (do message after reaching home),

which tends to magnify her sweetness, like a zillion times.

A love triangle seems to be brewing between her, Hasti and another character (to be introduced soon),

She waits eagerly to witness what life has in store for her.

Sounds of Wisdom!

Most of us play office office in our lives,

Considering the effort and the focus is to keep the office space lively,

Many opt for locations which bring one closer to the nature,

And if its right opposite a beautiful lake,

One wouldn’t be complaining too much about going to the office,

For one gets to hear and witness,

Chirping of birds,

and

Sounds of waves being created in the water,

Coupled with sounds which create some sort of hindrance,

when it comes to enjoying the beautiful scene,

traffic,

honking,

ambulance,

being few of such,

The former representing the very essence of life,

And

The latter reminding how far we have come from the very fundamentals.

Some day, one might wonder,

One would go back to where he or she came from!

Which Lens are you Using?

Day to day lives for majority are not that different, isn’t it?

One gets up in the morning,

Gets ready for office,

Works for nearly half the day he or she is awake,

Goes back and have dinner,

Sleeps thereafter.

Doesn’t sound that interesting, right?

Let’s try and change this narrative a bit,

One gets a chance to live one more day of his/her life, feeling blessed,

Gets ready to take on the challenges that the day is gonna present,

Creates an impact by making their contributions towards society,

After having spent a fruitful day at office,

gets a chance to spend some quality time with his/her loved ones,

Hits the bed with a feeling of gratitude the day offered,

How does this look?

The change is only in the mentality and the way one perceives things,

Choice is of course ours!

Casteing!

Was having a discussion with a good friend just two days back,

In his village,

There is a temple,

On the day of the puja,

The seating arrangement is pretty well defined,

The Brahmins sit right next to the deity,

Upper castes on the right,

Lower castes on the left

and

Untouchables right at the entrance of the temple,

Not that we, as Indians, aren’t aware of the social hierarchy,

Yet,

What’s surprising is to see it being practiced in such elaborate details,

Even in a so called modern India,

Few might argue,

That it has always been a part and parcel of our lives,

Don’t you think,

It’s time we break these barriers,

To move, so to say, forward in this game of life.

My Life-Your Life

Invariably we keep drawing these comparisons,

Be it the boy or girl next door,

or

Be it that successful colleague in our offices,

Be it the black sheep in the family,

or

Be it that wonderful cousin who has had it all in life,

Whatever be the reason for your kind of life,

Destiny

or

your own making,

We need to understand,

It has got to do nothing with any one else’,

One may want to get inspired,

One may want to draw a clue or two from others’,

But have your ever wondered,

What benefit it’s bringing to you?

Which brings back the memory of a song which became quite popular during it’s time,

It’s my life...and is unique in every sense of the word,

Why not just try and stick to that!

Doddajiva

Wondering what this could mean?

It refers to “big life” in Kannada.

Whether a person has had the chance to live life king/queen size.

Though here the king/queen is not gauged by what one has accumulated in life,

But by the very nature of the experiences one has had in their lifetime,

How exhaustive and expansive they have been,

and

How wonderfully lived each moment has been,

And if you are still wondering how this can be done,

Well,

It’s time to take a step back,

Revisit the very consciousness that is a part of each and everyone of us,

To,

Become cognizant of the way we conduct our lives,

Things we tend to prioritize and give importance to,

And give our life an opportunity to experience it all,

The only question being,

Are you ready to take a seat on this wonderful roller coaster of life?

Prepared?

Preparation can be of various kinds,

preparing for

Exams,

Marriage,

Interviews etc. etc.

But one preparation that most of us choose to ignore,

or

Are ignorant of,

Is the preparation for death,

As pessimistic as it might sound,

When the time comes,

most of us go in a state of shock,

knowing all through that the day would arrive,

when we will choose to take a leap of faith in a new arena altogether,

If we were just to remind ourselves

and

be cognizant of the only truth there is,

Guess life would become much more enjoyable and appreciable,

than what it is today!

The only question being,

Are we preparing ourselves for the eventuality?

L-Style

The other day I happened to visit a Lifestyle store.

What such kind of stores promise is a life altering shopping experience,

Clothes and accessories,

which can make you look good,

which can change the very manner in which you are perceived by this world,

which can bring a transformation in your lifestyle,

But have you ever wondered,

What kind of effect it has on the very nature of life that we are supposed to live?

Well,

In order to buy such products,

One toils day-in-day-out,

Not just to fulfill their own desires,

But also the desires of their near and dear ones,

And in that very quest tend to drift away from the very essence of life,

Choice is of course ours to focus either on,

Life or lifestyle!

EV

Oh, what a polite and obedient girl, she is!

Oh, what a responsible man he has become!

Oh, what personality!

And it goes on and on,

These very adjectives are what we crave for day in day out,

An external validation (EV) of sorts from the who’s who of our society,

No matter what,

We want to look good in front of these very eyes that matter to us,

All our thoughts and actions get influenced,

And we end up becoming a conditioned being,

Anything wrong with that, you may ask?

Well,

Nothing wrong I would say,

Just that every thought and every act based on this thought has a consequence,

Considering, more often than not, we are under tremendous pressure seeking this EV,

We tend to get caught up in this web of social seeking, so much so,

That

We tend to drift far away from the very essence of what life might be,

Of course the choice is yours to let it happen to you or not!

Love 2022!

One of the most talked about emotions possibly is love,

The moment I utter the word,

What comes to mind,

is

The love that one might have for his gf/bf/spouse,

The love that a mother/father might have for their kids,

or

The love that one might have for friends,

But the kind of love that is most relevant and most important is love for self,

Which we practice day-in-day-out,

For every act of love that we demonstrate is intended to bring about a pleasantness in oneself,

Though,

We claim to be doing it for others,

Yet,

The sole purpose is to have that feel good factor which makes our day,

Which,

Inspires us to invest our time and effort,

Which

Gives this very life a purpose,

2022 is no different in that sense,

If we were to focus on this very essential of love,

There won’t be any question about what’s right or wrong,

For what makes our life feel good in the true sense will in itself make others happy!

Agree?
