A Probable LIFE

        In this fast pacing world, we struggle to find little time for ourselves, where we know what is going on in other’s life but are unaware about ourselves. We try and understand the idiosyncrasy of our neighbors, our loved ones and at times we miserably fail. Someone is busy trying to impress a girl, in a few cases the so called 'girl' is replaced by a manager or Boss for that matter. Some are hoping for positive replies to love proposals and a few are waiting for negative outcomes in medical reports. Some are confused about what career to choose and some are regretting on what they have already done. Some are busy campaigning for the elections and some are busy waiting for the justice to deliver. Have we ever tried and figure out what's going right and what's not?

        At the age of 8-10, if one would ask a child “What do you want to become once you grow up?” The probable answers would be ‘a pilot’, 'an astronaut’ or some would say ‘a police man’. As and when they grow, their answers to the same questions would sound realistic, the guy now at the age of 16 would say ‘a Doctor, a Lawyer, or an Engineer’ and so on. So, the relation says as one grows up, his/her sensible thinking is inversely proportional to their age and that is probably what we call as Experience. So as per this formula of experience, at the age of 60, one would be able to say whether the decision to opt for a particular career was correct or not!

When do you feel that it’s not exactly going the way you once thought it to be?

How do you feel when people treat you as unproven theorems?

How does it feel to see your ex-love happy with someone else?

How does it feel when you realize that life is not that fancy fairy tale which you have been reading in books?

      The reality is that you are just riding the wave and going with the flow where confidence and experience are inversely proportional. This is the stage of life where one has already tasted the bitterness of above questions or just felt to realize it.

       The time after graduation, at the age of 24 -25 years is what one might find all these questions relevant. Where every single person encountering around asks you about career, future plans, marriage and what not. The real thing is you might not like facing those difficult to answer kind of questions, the right questions at a wrong time in your life. You know now love is not that blind and that friendship has its terms and conditions. But it is all fair. Probably this is called Life.

        As it is rightly said by Robert Frost ‘A person will sometimes devote all his life to the development of one part of his body - the wishbone’. It's good to be a day dreamer because if not in reality at least it is about cherishing the life you always want to live.
