Well, hello there. It’s been quite long, eh? For those who know me personally already know that I’ve died multiple times for not posting any content the entire week, trust me, my inner OCD self has committed suicide in the most dramatic ways possible. But hey, pardon my sudden disappearance off this portal, for I was once busy actually living my life (and combatting terrible network coverage) vis-à-vis my favourite ignored friend, the seas. Vacationing along the lines of an impromptu trip with a giant joint dysfunctional yet closely knit family of first cousins, comes with its own pros and cons. A little Zoya Akhtar analogy helped in maintaining mental stabilities of the few bratty (read:myself) ones aboard this vacational wagon.
It took some time, for this city boy and his entourage, to get used to the whimsical contours of nature, but boy was that something. The immense connection and relationship I shared with these obscure territories was something I never thought I would develop, considering the fact that I’m so ignorant (well, I’m not, but she still keeps complaining – my mother). It’s unthinkable of how a relatively virgin locality can make me go in such a deep level of retrospect. It made me play my thoughts in those exact notes I’ve always wanted them to be. By visiting those unknown locales, soaking up it’s entire geography and just inhaling it’s opulent existence, I developed a sense of existence. And somewhere in my mind, involuntarily, I engulfed it all, like a cinematographer who wasn’t even given his first narration. The whole environment gave me a chance to think, thank and witness the beauty of it. That sensation felt very romantic. Like I’ve fallen in love. Like I’ve spoken at length, to the wind. Like I’ve welcomed the spring thaw. It took just the oceans touch, and the sunset’s kiss for me to feel, rather than just see.
I’m trying now, to see beyond the horizon, till where my eyes can possibly scan – because I don’t just want to exist. I want to live. And no, you don’t live just once, you live everyday. You infact, die just once. So, make your life as worthy as you can, while you’re here, because I know I’m attempting to, and it feels amazing.
