Just when you thought you are big enough...

Love it!

... Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime

I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life...

Decisions and the 'OR' thing

Every opportunity has its own price tag; a cost that you got to bear. The tyranny of 'OR' as they say, exists everywhere. A continuous and relentless decision making, that eventually leads to nothing but a thing gained, and a world lost. But I think, this whole notion of opportunity and its cost, is severely flawed. And if ratified like any other management concepts, it can have some defining implications on our lives.

Living life of a fresh graduate is interesting. Stunned identities, hitch-hiking across multiple corridors of life. Many choices to be made. Many decisions to be taken. A chaos that surrounds me for now numbs up my mind sometimes. Like an explosion followed by some deafening silence. But living in this state for past few weeks has undoubtedly enriched my life [in totality]. Clarifying a lot things. Yes, I'm in chaos but am not confused. Yes, I got to make my choices and take my decisions, but I am not really bearing any costs. May be am just putting everything I have to wrap hands around my life and let nothing go.

Used to think that work-life is tough, busy. Amazingly spending more time with friends these days. And quality of time spent is linear to the quantity of moments cherished. Used to think pragmatism might overwhelm ideals. Thankfully, my first venture kicks off this month. And yet am an employee of some giant org. Satisfies both. My needs and wants. An idea which I think have struck me at the very right time.

I'm not yet ready to pay any costs. Would just go on availing whatever I have, and maximizing whatever I get. I would never glorify imperfections. Let see what life brings on.

Its gonna be interesting!
