20 and Lost ! 

There are always two types of people . The first lot is of those people who know it all . The ones who are aware of their origin , who know what they’re doing and where they’re going . They’ve identified their destiny and will give anything it takes to fulfill their destiny .
Then there is the other Lot (which includes people like me ! ) . Those who are not really sure about anything . They’re lost in the present , unsure about the past and have no clue about what their future looks like ! They don’t know where they’re headed and even if they do , they have no clue how to get there .
Well , most of those in college will identify with this Lot 🙂

It’s not that we  don’t care about our future and , we definitely don’t like being stuck in the confused state that we’re in .
According to me , we are the late bloomers !

We have just not found our story yet . Most of us are stuck in the wrong storyline playing all the wrong parts .

Many things might’ve bought us to the place we are in , like society , parents , friends or sheer ignorance . And we do realise that something doesn’t quite feel right , but we can never figure out what’s that one piece of puzzle that doesn’t fit !

But you know what ? I feel that not knowing what we want to do actually works as an advantage because we live life one day at a time . Since we don’t know where we’re going next , we end up taking it all as one big adventure ! Although it might seem stupid and terribly naive and unambitious in today’s competitive world , we walk the rope blindly and hope for the best .
Until one day we finally stumble upon our destiny , and find that one thing we want to do in life .

And trust me , when that day comes we value that realisation more than the first Lot . Why ? Because , we strived to get to that realisation . We might’ve taken a thousand wrong turns to finally take the right one , the one that will lead us to the sole purpose of our lives .
So if you’re lost , don’t lose hope yet 🙂
If you’re lost , it’s okay !

Maybe not today but someday soon , you will find your way , and that day you will be grateful that you were Lost in the first place !

MY EUPHORIA GENERATOR …

Do you ever get that feeling where your heart is thumping , your body feels restless and your mind is exploding with a million thoughts all at once ?   You feel so happy but you just can’t put it into words ?     And you wish that the moment  never ends ?

This feeling of immense joy , merged with kicks of adrenaline is called ‘Euphoria’ .

It is different for different people . For some it is when they dance , for some it is when they listen to their favorite song , for some it is the tizzy that alcohol sends you into !

But for me , it is exploring and observing places .

I am a kind of person who is interested in what’s going on in the backdrop of the story rather than the characters ; to put it in other words , I have the tendency to get lost in watching  the surrounding , and absorbing every little detail of a place rather than listen to what the people around me might be discussing about .

My friends rarely hand me the camera  , because they know very well that I would end up capturing the colorful gola stall or the unusually huge fly sitting on top of a gola …rather than taking their pictures !

I don’t know why I like doing this . All I know is that , I just do !

I feel that every place in itself has a story to tell . Take South Mumbai for instance . The Victorian architecture there takes me to a different era . I can still feel the British air  . I feel that the huge intricately carved panels , the strong pillars , the various sculptures overlooking the busy streets ,all yearn to tell a story untold .

Be it the filthy and gloomy streets of Chor bazaar , the fragrant chaos at the Dadar flower market , A glimpse of the foggy nilgiri mountains , the sandy winds of Rajasthan , or a majestic sunset at Marine drive , each has a beauty of its own . And encapsulating that beauty in my mind gives me a high !

But my point here is , that each one of us should identify our own ‘Euphoria generator ‘.

Everyone should know what is that    ‘one thing’   that lets us experience  ultimate bliss. They are like a safe place , where we can retrieve when we feel low . They lift up our spirits and give us a reason to continue our search for more such moments in life . And their memories immortalize that happiness within us . So before moving on with your lives , I suggest you find that ‘one thing’ ,so that today when you step out into the world….You will step out in search of happiness !
