Ad Hoc Zindagi!

I have always been a very big fan of ad hoc decision making throughout my life. Planning has always looked so boring to me, personally. The kick and the pleasure one gets in an ad-hoc implementation is much more than what you can possibly get via a planned implementation.

Some of my friends tell me that it can’t go on forever and ever, which is true to some extent. But till you are able to do so and till the time you have an apetite to sustain such trips, then why the hell one should be laid back in taking that one step towards something which will remain with you forever and ever.

Some even say that its a sheer waste of time and money. After all what’s there in roaming around alone. What is this kind of fun that is very much incomprehensible to them?

Well! Some things are there to be felt and not talked about or explained. 😉 Either you feel it or you don’t and this is one such thing which needs to be looked at not from the perspective that our brain tends to provide us with but from a perspective that our heart tends to provide. 🙂photo-full

And sometimes it’s not all about losing or winning; it is also not about those materialistic things and pleasures of life that we tend to preserve for centuries without really getting the pleasure out of it and undermining the purpose of preserving the same.

It is also not about getting hitched to what the norm is; what is normally done by the majority; what might be the recommended thing to do; what might be the most sought for thing to do at a certain point of time in life.

It is much more than what I have mentioned above. It is life personified. It is the happiness and the satisfaction you derive from being close to the nature that is more important than anything else in life that you can possibly perceive or think of.

I know that this can’t go on forever and ever and there will be a time when I will also do the normal. But you never know what lies in the future. And who can deny the possibility of me getting lucky with respect to be able to spend sometime such as this in the future ;).

All that I would like to say, as of now, is Three Cheers to Ad-Hoc Zindagi ;).

Pretending to be Me!

The prententious in me always seem to take over and I end up doing things which I would have otherwise not even dreamt of doing.”

This was an answer given by one of the most famous actors of his time on being asked how he is able to give incredible performances day-in-day-out.

To some extent, we all end up behaving a bit differently when significant others are around us. We try to put up our best display of courteousness and smartness in order to impress others with our persona and presence of mind.

For youngsters, especially guys, this is one of the ways in which they try to catch the much seeked attention from the pretty girls who happen to be present there at that very moment.

For girls, it is of course about seeking attention from the most handsome of guys and making sure that they beat their contemporaries on this front.

For aunties, it is a way of restoring their lost glory, when they used to be themselves very pretty. It is also a way of demonstrating to the entire World that they are still in the race.

For uncles, it is nothing but a way of ensuring their dominance over their colleagues and showing that they have what it takes to be right up there.

Somehow, with the increased socialization, we all tend to devote very little time to what we truly are and end up living a totally different kind of a life.

But there are times, when no one is there and we end up spending some time with our origins, the nature who has, since times immemorial, continued to remind us all of the absolute truth.

Deep down, we know what is the eventuality. Inspite of that, we try to mask the reality with the lifestyle that we so love to lead. Someone has wisely said: “jeena isi ka naam hai.

Sometimes, I too think, that it is not worth thinking. It is not worth pondering over where we will be after we are no more here.

The countdown had already begun when we first made our presence felt in this World. And the nature of this clock is such that it never gives you a second chance.

That is the sole reason why I always beleive in living life to the fullest. After all it is worth pretending to be me rather than being me.
