Just Wondering ...

i've had a little bit of very very precious time on my hands in the last few minutes and i was just browsing a few blogs when it struck me that a lot of them were by people ranting about stuff ( i mean it in a good way) ... people taking up positions and opinions. Looking at life through much more realistic and questioning eyes than whats on display on the street.

Just wondered if its a case of a heightened sense of being when it comes to blogging. Does a personality change occur in normal everyday people when they blog. People who in ther everyday lives dont complain, who lead quiet, fuss free lives and do not concern themselves with problems beyond their immediate desires. Do they turn into passionate, concerned individuals who cast a questioning eye on society and pose often-profound and deep questions into the everyday happening in this world?

I guess my question is this : ( and the answer depends pretty much on your view of humanity i guess)
"Are there concerned citizens …

The Idea Of Heaven??

The concept of the existence of a heaven and a hell is, as we all know, an almost universally acknowledged concept. One of the few common points among all the varied religions in this world. All religions seem to peddle the idea of eternal happiness in heaven for the ones with 'faith' and the followers of the 'good' path. Obviously the ones who choose to differ are threatened with eternal condemnation to the depths of a fiery and ghastly hell.

Religion, or lets say formal religion, has been often thought of as the perfect tool for mass human control. A prison for the mind. That idea is not new. A lot of thinkers have followed those lines of thought and come to the same conclusions. The idea of heaven and hell, that promise the sweetest of rewards and threaten the most dire of consequences is not only a perfect idea, but infact a necessary tool to achieve that sort of control over men. Some people are influenced by greed and those few who don't succumb to the lure of…

The place i wanna be...

i was driving on the expressway .. running some errand for dad when out of nowhere i found myself wanting to be in this particular place ..
it's a place i've been to.. but it has no name .. it's the place i love more than any other on earth. And i had this uncontrollable urge to go there once again. It was one of those cravings that leave you feeling totally helpless. I couldnt think of anything else at that moment ... just that i wanted to be there more than anything. And i didnt want to fly there or something .. just get instantly transported there .. just GET THERE at that MOMENT.

I last saw this place on a sunny summer morning about 11 years ago....and yet .. i can still smell the crisp clean air .. laden with wafting scents of pine, filling my lungs with that exquisite sharpness that only a cold breath of air can provide. The most satisfying feeling ever .. that freshness. Even after this long .. i can remember little details and yet its the overall picture that left me…

kissing the rain ...

A darker shade of black..
or maybe a lighter shade of white,
a quiter place than a tomb..
or a place busier than my mind.

A night without darkness,
followed by days without sunshine.
Something's obviously missing,
seems impossible to find.

i recognise pieces of what i desire
yet the whole, is hard to define.
maybe it's a hard thing to describe
or maybe it just doesnt exist,
and all this is a waste of time.

i believe this quest if for forever
i fear it'll take longer than that to realize...

Old cliche's and new ones

2005. Aspirations. Dreams. Hopes. Thoughts. Critical decisions. Life altering moments. Promises kept. Promises broken. Milestones reached. Milestones crossed. Bridges mended. Bridges passed. memories made. Memories relived. Pain felt. Pain caused. Pain assuaged. Experiences gained. Lessons learnt. lessons forgotten. Lessons applied. Habits picked. Habits kicked. Discover more about myself. Discover more to be discovered about myself. Love. Life. The works .... come to think of it ... whats new that the year brings? Then again .... whats not new ... new dreams .. new aspirations ... new hopes .... new experiences and finally new memories .... not much to look forward to ... or everything to excitedly wait for .... all's a matter of views. Pick yours.
