A Year That Was



Sometimes its better that the present is left behind too. And that’s when the present doesn’t seem to gel. We all talk a lot about leaving behind the past, moving on, getting to think about the future. Sometimes its heaven to climb the mountain of justice, and yet once conquered no mystique remains. Reminds me of a Akon song, where there’s a tagline of “When you have everything, what can you possibly desire?” My version goes ,”When you probably have nothing, what could you possibly not desire?” As the year ends, a good deal still remains to be recorrected and resurrected. Things could so very easily have been different, but destiny does play its hand.

A year which started off on a good note. Went from good to average to bad to worse to worst to average again! A year which I started literally flying, then crashed heads down, and lost it all. Not that I’ve begun to fly again, I’ll probably never do that again, have learnt that lesson. Just started walking, took me a lot of time to stand up, with a bit of support. A year when The Dream was dashed, when all principles got its rigid test of all time. Something like the Borsalino Test. Everything faded, but thank my stars my principles stood it stuttering along. Probably the only golden lining in the the dashed and dotted sky!

Its all been on a personal note. The general feel of the year, well we all can take a glimpse of how the year unfolded on the idiot box. But there are many things which are not covered, which sometimes are best left out of the glare. Right now am pretty mosh-faced. Have not felt pain for sometime now. Don’t let anything affect me. Yet stay straight faced. So many things happening all around, yet as I mentioned once earlier on blogosphere, have become a Hollowman! Have mastered the art of being able to get into everything and yet stay kissing the surface, somehow scratching the superficial sub-layer of everything.

And yes I wanna thank a few people for being with me when I think I’d have just left this world if they had not intercepted…ABD,RB(1),AD,AB,MG,RB(2),DM,SG. These persons I’m ever thankful to. And above all to the person who has changed my life all over single handedly-SRC, Thanks! Not many words for you, but if you had not treated me that way, I would probably never have realized what love, pain, sacrifice, truth, respect, friendship, happiness, loss, Heaven & Hell is! Kudos to one person who could make me feel all of that plethora of emotions all alone. Thank You!

I don’t have a habit of making resolutions. And I’ll never cultivate that habit either! Resolutions are just meant to be broken, just like records. For me now every day is a new day, and so probably that why the new year doesn’t hold much more significance for me except the coming year won’t be a leap year!

Happy new year to all of you…may the comimg year bring all the prosperity, and lets try to control AIDS, and combat terrorism with our best possible weapons, we ourselves…


P.S. : watch out for the next post. It will feature an underground research, that is if you have any interest in such things! Till then …

  6. Life is like that!
    Quoting you-
    "For me now every day is a new day, and so probably that' why the new year doesn’t hold much more significance for me "

    seize the moment- and see how beautiful life will be... Live the moment you are in and rest will be taken care of later when the moment for that will come... 'carpe diem'

    Happy New Year!

    How does music of your soul sounds from someone's flute? soothing... not tortuous :)

    Good Luck With your life! :)
