Blankness - An Experiment

BLANKNESS - When you are void of Expression

                                                             Have you ever felt it? Sitting in a room,]doing nothing, thinking nothing. Just sitting and relaxing.] Just looking at the wall in front of you staring it as if your life depends on it. Staring it continuously to that extent that at the end of it, you feel embarrassed for doing it.] I think it happens a lot when you undergo pressure situations while at work, at least for me. It not only points towards the strange and amazing way a human brain works but also towards the way we are living our lives.] The first one because I think it might be my mind's way of releasing the pressure so as to prevent a total crash and the other reason because I think it can be used as an indicator for the amount of quality of work one is doing regularly. I started writing this blog while in that state of mind My Blankness. All those lines which end with "]" are the ones where I spaced out again and then had to spin my head like a dog to come back to the reality. No matter how much I tried I would go back in that zone until the pressure is completely released.]]] 
                                             This was a long one. So I decided that I should take the help of music to come out of it and be alert again. By the way, the song playing is - Another Rainy Day by Corinne Bailey Rae.] The duration was decreased certainly but still, the drift in the Blankness was present. ]]]]]].

                                                                 Finally, I decided to give in to the blankness, I let my mind rest. I let it take its own time to regain the orientation. To my surprise, the words to complete this piece came back racing in my head. My fingers were not able to keep up with the alphabets, words, sentences which were being drafted in this beautiful thing called human brain. Certainly, it's power is unmatchable and vast. During this what I realised was that it wasn't only this blog about which I was thinking but also the class which I was going to take after two days for my juniors, I was thinking about the preparation for it, thinking about my evening duty and many other things. 
              Maybe it was a break for my mind but now it's time to stop thinking and start doing.

The Hero Within!

Before landing at Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, I had never imagined that I'll see these three pictures on the wall and start thinking about my own life. I had never been a fan of art because I do not understand it. I don't hate it. It's just that I don't understand it. Sometimes I do not get the point of colours too. It's strange and weird but that's me - Weird and Strange.                                                                          So coming back to my point which is that this was the first art sequence which made me think about things. Things related to my life. My mistakes and good decisions. My achievements and losses. My will power and sometimes the lack of it. My determination in certain spheres of life and again lack of it in some. It made me think how I am not perfect and how life goes through different phases as we age, as we grow up professionally.

Sun Sets on Everything....

Recently I experienced a loss of someone very close to me. Although it made me extremely sad but also made me think about things. Things like what is life? What are we doing everyday i.e. while we are at work or just sitting around and chatting with a friend or are watching a movie in a theatre/home or just hitting the pub at odd timings and coming back late on a Saturday Night. Yeah, I know there are many other things which we do apart from the things which I have mentioned but I thought I would list the most common and generic ways of passing time in everyday life. 
                                                                           Coming back to the point from where it all started. By 'it' I mean my thinking process of thinking things i.e. looking at grey areas of life. It was a monsoon of 2012 when I first realized that even my brain could contemplate thoughts like empathy, thinking ahead of time and making plans for future. Although the trigger for it was too unfo…

Soldiers of Struggle!

I would like to dedicate this write-up to the soldiers of my and other countries who stand at the borders and protect the civilians without worrying about their own life and pleasures. It fills my heart with pride when I see a picture of a soldier standing on Siachen Glacier and smiling. I feel like saluting these men a thousand times.

                                                         The reason why I write this blog is to talk about the plight of such brave and courageous men in twenty first century. We all know that the work which they are doing is selfless and thankless. Getting killed by a bullet while you are thousands of miles away from home is a kind of death which none of us want, but, not for these men who lay down their life time and again . Sometimes fighting with the enemies who try to attack their motherland. Sometimes just because there is ceasefire violations from the other side. Tears are shed constantly by the wives, children and other family members of our mar…
