Drown to Death


Lift me up when you’re free
from underneath this pile of memories.
That’s where I refused to sink
but there, my life drowns to death.


Need to Find Self!

It is raining all day here in Kerala. Sun was always hiding for many days inside clouds and days are more dark and cold. So is my mind. For a week I was inside my home and working on my dissertation. For many reasons I was neither able to concentrate nor able to stay positive. I love these rains. And every year I wait for these days to watch rains from my window, to walk without an umbrella in my yard, to travel in a public transport bus with the windows partially open to embrace these drops. But I was not enjoying any of those. Life is easy when I look out through my window. But it was not easy when I look behind my spectacles. “Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nothing…” And for many days I found myself within a blank, dark space. But Often… I wanted to remind myself that it happens…

There is light at the end…” I remember this all the time. Because there was a more difficult time. A time I was not able to wake up from my bed to face the world without fear. But I survived it. So I can survive this. What we need to have is some bits of motivation whenever we feel bad. It always helps to reduce the pain than thinking we are lost. For many days I tried to sit and watch inspiring talks of people in YouTube. I went to Church often and prayed. But what really helped me was my own perspective about myself that “I can overcome this pain…”

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
none but ourselves can free our minds.

These are my favourite lines from Bob Marley. And I find it very true that, you can’t simply compare someone else’s misery to yours and feel OK. For the same reason, those talks were just a reminder that life is hard on earth for many people. The change we seek is always come from our own perspective, our own minds.  As we become strong, life becomes hard too. It is easy to give up. But I remember that anybody can do it but, there is only a few who willing to move on. I want be one among that few. Nothing should stop me…

Things change and people leave
but, life doesn’t stop for anybody

I know the intensity of these lines from outside the pages of “Perks of Being a Wallflower”. And it is the reality. Nothing is forever. So is my pain. There is a thousand reasons for me to stay strong. I would rather be a butterfly with a short span; not a kite which pulled by a string. I am going to read more on coming days. I think I will find myself in many pages. May be within these rainy days I will find that light. That sun will come out of my clouds. And slowly I will embrace my dear rainy days the way I used to… I will

Note to Self!

The better way to change the world!

For many days I have been trying to tell the world around me to be nice and gentle with everything and everyone. But today I went through a number thoughts and repeated seeking answers for many recent events in my life and I reached a conclusion that “other than telling the world to be nice and gentle and it is wise to tell everybody to be bold and confident!

I don’t deny the truth that a few people follow peace in life and need it to share with everyone. But we live in a world where we have to face constant obstacles all around us. Everybody and everything is connected 24×7 by the electronic media we are obsessed with. So it is easy for a person to get blamed and easy for a person to feel deserted.
