Everyone lives in an illusion about most things these days. Life is not as easy as it seems to be. As kids maybe we were too innocent or naive to understand, but as we grow up, we start realizing the true nature of this very world! It's not as goody- goody as it looks like! Sometimes we are made to believe somethings but with time we realize that what we yearn for is actually something impossible because that's not the way things work here!
Take a simple example, everyone talks about finding their soul-mate in life. Katy Perry’s song “Teenage Dream”, goes like this, “I finally found you, my missing puzzle piece, I'm complete!”. Okay... So what were you till now, incomplete?? :-P
Blame it on the movies! Blame it on the damn romantic songs! SRK and Kajol share a great on- screen chemistry, but really? Running around the sarson ke keth? Is that really happening, Senorita? :P Blame it on all drama kings and the queens for creating a hazy cloud of fantasy around us! :P Blame it on the girl and the guy circumambulating the peepal tree! *You spin my head right round....right round....*
It is said that when you are in love, violins and saxophones start playing in the background score. Who are you kidding? There's one reason why movies show these hypothetical things and I'm gonna tell you the reason now- BECAUSE- They are MOVIES :P Its REEL life, not REAL life. They are made for entertaining people, to give them a break from their realistic monotonous not- so- dreamy life! Duh!!!
You really think Prince Charming is gonna come riding a horse and swipe you off your feet? :-| Well, even a slippery floor or a banana peel can do that! :P :P
To the oranges rolling down the grass ;-) C'mon life is not as smooth as Silk ;-) *Oh la la* and the hope that you'll get the perfect girl next door, Jessie? :P Ahh...IN YOUR DREAMS!!! *Ek Deewana Tha*
Neither are you an actor, nor is she.
*Unless you are in that profession ;-)....*
|Life in a nutshell- An illusion!|
I would like to quote William Shakespeare, "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages." Life is not a play inside a play! So, the sooner you realize that you are not living in a movie, the better for you!
*....Roll, Camera... Action!!: Sun rising, Birds chirping, Squirrels running around, Kids going to school and the adults to their workplace....*
What is actually happening =>>
Sun rising? Hmm... Happens everyday right? Its' not really in your control to make the sun rise or set. :P
Birds chirping? Yeah it's early in the morning and they are screeching for food! Maybe the early bird got the worm and they missed it :P And you thought they were singing their early morning chorus :P
Squirrels running around? What else do you expect them to do? :P Talk Spanish? :P
Kids going to school? As if they have an option. Who loves taking weekly, monthly, half-yearly and term end examinations? Movies show the school gates opening and the kids just running in with beaming smiles...LOL.. that doesn't happen in reality! ;) Unless you are Rancho and you are the whizkid in thirst of knowledge! :P
Adults to their workplace? Maybe it's just the greed of money that makes them go? Who will pay their bills and taxes?
This is reality, boss! Good Morrrnnninggggggg!!! *Time to wake up from your deep slumber, Rip Van Winkle..* ;-)
Here's another thing, there's nothing called "FOREVER"... What can you have forever? Nothing!! You yourself are on Earth for a short span and in that short span you make bade bade vaade/ big big promises of being best friends forever with some people? Someone phuuleezzeeee justify this word first! You are not immortal, nothing is forever! :) Life is an illusion, death is the ultimate truth. We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone. Accept it! :)
“Life has no meaning the moment you lose the illusion of being eternal.”- Jean-Paul Sartre
“What if everything is an illusion and nothing exists? In that case, I definitely overpaid for my carpet”- Woody Allen
Well, realizing the truth might make us have a negative take on this world. The only thing is not to lose hope. Anyways, that's how it is. It's all an illusion: the people and their promises; their fake love and the superficial attachment; the society dwells on the concept of use- and- throw of people and admit it, that's the ugly truth. People just need a valid reason to hang out with you and when that sole reason is over they disappear. Yes, they do. You will understand that if someone is good to you then they might probably want that back from you in some form or the other, and that's the reason why they are doing that for you in the first place. Nasty ain't it! That's life. A bitter sweet thing. It's no movie after all. It's not sugar, spice and everything nice unless you are the power puff gals! :P :P It's all a mystery which keeps unfolding one after the other. The best thing is to be practical, accept reality and act accordingly, make sure that no one uses you for the heck of it and make sure to set some of them right, for the ones who belong to Smartass Ville, show them that you are from Smarter-ass Ville! LOL! :D
