Writing is not an easy job, especially when you have had a fairy tale start to your blog and then suddenly there has been a prolonged lull period which contains only the THOUGHTS and RESOLUTIONS to start writing as soon as possible and going through other’s blogs to gain inspiration. I surely seem to be inspired now!
Daily, there had been many instances, big and small, eventful and boring, which sparked me off momentarily to write the blog the very next instant I lay my hands on the computer. Don’t know where it evaporated.
I was waiting for my bus to go to office, all bored and with no smile on my face, when I saw a grandpa driving over with his little cute grandchild to the coconut-water wala right besides where I was standing. The happiness that beamed from both the individual’s faces got me into a deep introspection. Thoughts whirled in my mind as I zoomed through what might have been the life of the old man. Childhood full of fun and frolic, youth spent in shaping up the career, marriage, raising kids and earning money and now, he is enjoying life with a big smile on his face. The thing that made me happy was that old age can also be lively and interesting unlike being sad and full of misery which I and most of us think. The other thing that struck me significantly was that love of an individual increases exponentially, from his child to grandchild. Personal experience concreted this thought and the instance happening in front of me was a live example. The bus was late that day which gave me all the more time to think and my mind went deeper into the thoughts of importance of elders in our lives, all the love I have got from my elders and all that I have missed getting that I deserved & further philosophies.
The Benares trip, which was eagerly awaited by all of us relatives and especially cousins, was a grand success. Last week of Dec 2011 was the time and the City of Ghats was the venue. This trip, other than the super awesome fun I had, was a revelation for me. It made me realize that I can click photographs and click them really well. 500 photographs summed up the Benares trip through my lens, some Ok types and some really good [I hate boasting about myself].
Also, the trip made CERTAIN relationships stronger, cleared many things between different individuals, converted a few thoughts to certain facts and of course increased my love for my cousins specifically in leaps and bounds. Inclusion in PNPC [A specific Bong term for Gossiping] for me and my brother was long waited which got over this time. A blog would be too small and the time I have would be too less to write down what all I experienced out there. All that I know is that I love my COUSINS more than anything else and this trip has given it a much required impetus.
Music is one thing which soothes down, cheers up, lightens up and cools down any individual, no matter what situation they are in. It is so strikingly amazing that how every song that you follow or like has to do something with your life. Every song has some relation to some instance that once occurred in your life which led to you falling in love with that song or making that instance memorable. Every song has inspired me to write down a blog which, as always, just went down with the increasing number of songs I heard. Happiness, motivation, sadness, party, tranquility or peace – every mood in life has some song that I relate to and tell you what; Music is the best medicine to any damn situation in life. Experienced that in the Benares trip as well and even now while hearing to Mitwa by Mrigya, A Hindustani classical and rock Fusion band, ideas and words are just flowing by! * Wide Smile *
They say, every well written piece, well sung song or anything as such has to have some inspiration and constant persuasion by others or from within. I had my share of both and there you go, I finally have updated my barren Blog with a hara-bhara post! :D Thanks to that individual, whose knowing & unknowing, serious & joking inspiration and persuasions got me through!
Seven months is a real long time to take a gap from writing and I hope this post is the start of good things to flow from my mind! A lot has been stacked up in my mind all this while and I hope the greenery of my blog persists!
