Who am I ?



Every now and then we all go through what they call an 'identity crisis'!

Is it our nativity, personality, qualification, relationships or interests that defines us?
If so, won't that be a limitation, after all?

Despite of countless hours of pondering on the same, I fail to associate myself to one category, as I'm many things in one. We all are! I have many roles to play. It is a mere role after all, why should just a role define me?

Perhaps, I am nobody.

And then I think, why do I need to define myself? Who asked for it and why do I owe anybody an answer. The answer lies within me and it is for me to know.

The truth is, I can be anybody I want to, as I have that infinite capacity of being so. We set our boundaries. We set limitations. We play many roles in this life of ours, they all are passing phases. What remains is 'you'. That constant thing makes you see and observe these things, and that introspects. But wait, this is the mind, isn't it? So what are you, the mind?
What is the body for then? Just flesh and bones?

This thinking goes on and on...

The fact is, it is for you to chose... be anything you want to be...

ANYTHING.

"God, you think, God you are! Dust, you think, dust you are!"

So watch your thoughts! It's your life, let it be your call!



Roadkill:
What now, amigo?
Rango:
No man can walk out on his own story. I'm goin' back.
Roadkill:
But why?
Rango:
Because that's who I am.

The Birth of an Adult



An adult is born when he smiles at chaos.
      Yet, he knows it is chaos that gives birth to a rising star.

An adult is born when it dawns on him that everybody is selfish.
      Yet, he knows that it is only love that can conquer all.

An adult is born when he does the things he doesn't like at all.
      Yet, he does it, for a greater good.

An adult is born when he wakes up in the morning sleep deprived.
      Yet, drags himself to work, for he has bills to pay and mouths to feed
              passions to pursue (?), well, then lucky... aren't you!

An adult is born when he makes what he's 'ought to' do, his 'want to' do
       Yet, he thinks, this is the best, as he doesn't have the luxury of taking risks!

An adult is born when, he forgives and forgets the pangs caused by his dear,
       Yet, keeps the scars at bay, for all he wants is his loved ones to be near. 

An adult is born when, he moves out of his comfort zone.. 
       Yet, he does it as he knows that, it needs to be done to expand and grow.


~~*~~

Taking birth as an adult, and living as one is a conscious effort that should taken by everyone of us, every second of our lives. 

We need to constantly coax happiness and hoax pain. 


~~*~~

        When things don't seem to go your way,          

Find your ray of hope & bounce back again!!




Cheers!!!

Takeaways from Wolverine

                                    


There might be a million reasons as to why people love Wolverine aka Logan (read Hugh Jackman), here are my takeaways from this character:

  • Regenerative Healing Power
    As long as there are people, there will be politics and no man is an island!!! And you know that hurt, sadness and the like are byproducts of these people- politics. During such times, if we can gain strength from Wolverine just by recalling how his body coped with so many bullets and life-threatening injuries and cuts, we'll realize that the pain we are enduring is really nothing. Heal yourself. After-all, its all in he mind.
  • Strength
    We do not have Adamantium in our bodies but our bones ain't weak either. You are way more strong than what you think of yourself.
  • Be a Survivor
    Fight. Fight. Fight. Keep the fighting spirit until you don't reach your final destination. (Don't pick up a fight please :-P)
  • To love a person truly, sincerely and deeply
    Wolverines' lady love was Jean and always will be. Our motto should be 'One person for life' :-)
  • Follow your (animal) instincts [social-animals, aren't we?]
    Gut feelings are precious. Honour it. Being cautious and aware of your surroundings.
  • Stick to your values/ have noble intentions
    Unlike his brother, Wolverine was not a psycho-killer. He killed only when it was necessary. Even a beastly person like him stuck to values, then why can't you being human stick up to it?
  • Discover your true-self
    The Adamantium bullet shot at Wolverines' head healed but made him forget his past and since then he was in constant search of his past, his identity. Well, even in our case this is applicable.
    When you question your self "Who am I", you seldom find answers!
  • Team Spirit
    Its easy playing solo but a man who honours team spirit is truly worthy of accolade.

X-Men. Professor X. Magneto. Mystique. Storm. Cyclops. Logan. Jean. Kitty. Beast. Night- crawler. etc.

There's something to learn from everything and everyone. Even from mutants.

7 brilliant movies!

14 hours of these marvelous mutants and I'm still craving for more! 

Cannot wait for 2016! X-Men Apocalypse!!

Love Mutant and Proud about it! :-)

मृगतृष्णा



घंघोर घटा छाये
टप- टप गिरे यह नन्हे बूंद
बारिश तेज़ रफ्तार से आये
हड़बडाई हुई मैं…
गांव से निकली, शहर की ओर
उन राहों से
जिनसे वो निकलें
चली मैं ढूंडने उन्हें
उनकी ओर...

कहीं भीग तो नहीं गए, वो?
सोच मे डूबी
ढूंडती गयी उन्हें गली- गली
घबराई…
यह बिन मौसम की बरसात,
बिन बुलाये मेहमान की तरह
न जाने क्यों आई?
क्यूँ आई?

कहके गए थे, बस अभी आ जाऊँगा
घंटे निकल गए 
न दिखा उनका नामों- निशान
हर जगह ढूँडा उन्हें
हुई मैं बेबस और परेशान

इस ठंडी- ठंडी मौसम का 
न कुछ मुझको भाए
ज़ुल्फें मेरे लेहराएं
पर मन बैठा जाये

अचानक एक आवाज़ आई:
" सुमित्रा!
इस बारिश मे कहाँ जा रही हो?
कहीं उन्हें ढूँडने तो नहीं फिर निकल गयी?
उनके गुज़रे हुए महीने हो गये हैं
घर चली जाओ, गुड़िया
चली जाओ घर...."
