while sitting with my books and trying hard to concentrate on the book i was reading for my exams tomorrow my mind escaped into the randomness and got entangled in the strangest of thoughts.i caught myself thinking how uneventful my life is and i checked myself before letting my thoughts became lamentation..earlier i was hoping things would not be eventful,if it meant no troubles from occurring and now when i recovered here i am wishing for something positive and eventful to happen.i mean few days back there i was almost like a drama queen going on and off ranting about how pathetic my life was,how bugging people were,how unfair the world was and how i was the perfect sacrificial lamb at the alter of politics.i must have bored my readers to death.now when i look back i do acknowledge what happened and the after effect but now it seems so silly thinking by the way i was reacted under pressure. and now here i am complaining when there is nothing great happening.we as people are really funny in the things we want,for when we want something we don't get it,and when we don't want it we get it.

while sitting in the metro the other day i was wondering at the different kinds of people.how all types of people were sitting,waiting for their destination.each one has some troubles in life,somewhere to go,things and people to deal with;yet we are there together sharing space and the moment together,yet somewhere we are aloof and unaware of the hardships faced by people sitting right next to us,the thoughts that are running through their minds.still lost in randomness i noticed this young girls making shy eye contact with the guy accompanying her,she must be in love with him.on the other side this lady was yelling at her son for not punching back his classmate for eating his tiffin,poor guy caught between his friend and his mother.just as the door opened at a stoppage a man got up still talking earnestly on his cellphone,as the train began to move the connection broke and irritation having left a conversation unfinished showed on his face.so many people and their various problems in life,yet they move on,doing what they are supposed to do,side stepping their grief, troubles and hardships maybe this is what they say is life,which just goes on and we have to be nimble on our feet to catch up with it and move on.

there is no better a pastime than to observe the various kinds of people on meets in buses or on the streets.there is always so much to learn from smallest of things that it intrigues me.pain death and love are always uninvited guests,they come unannounced,hence to deal with them one has to be perceptive and a bit persevering...

nice one....

yes i love to sit and watch people...i'm an observer..i think it comes from being an only child growing up and not having many friends growing up so i just sat and watched......

i still do that now...everybody has their own nuances....

anyhow...have a nice one!
