I wish…my life was more happier!!!

Posted by Madhuresh on February 23, 2009

I was wondering that why are we crying all the time?? I was reading across a book and found that the Problem, i believe, the essential issue with humankind, the reason we are all always at some level or another pissed off, is REALITY SUCKS!!!!

No, no, really, hear me out. Animals don’t have the same problem because, hey, face it, no matter how much your dog chases balls in his sleep, he’s not dreaming about how great life would be if something were a little different. He’s okay, really, with his schedule-scratch, eat, sleep. How wrong could you go with that? He’s not in line for promotion and there isn’t this list of things he wants to get done before he’s 25, because he will be a lucky dog if he lives to see sixteen.

Now people, since we evolved from cavemen and all, have issues. We tend to think that if so-and so (or such-and-such) were totally different our lives would be perfect. How many times have so many of us said ‘It’s not fair!’ or     ‘why (not) me?’ Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you get a chance to make that change, live your fantasy as it were. And still, nine times out of ten, it’s not enough. It’s never blood enough. We’re greedy as a species, and at the same time a little pathetic because, well, we’re always searching for something or the other outside of our everyday lives. And, really who are the people we admire? We admire movie stars. People who seem to have their shit together. And who makes the most money? Plastic surgeons, for one, and therapists. And, again people in the entertainment industry. Anyone who makes reality look a little less real. True story.

You want one thing , you work hard (beg, borrow steal) and get that thing. But as soon as its clear u are getting it you start searching for what’s next? Instead of enjoying. We all want perfect lives. But let me remind  that “No system is perfect in this world”. Every plus has a minus. That’s a rule for anything. PROBABLY ONLY RULE WITHOUT EXCEPTION.

Now only way to bring peace in your life is cry less and enjoy more. I know its impossible not to cry, cause common lets face it. We are a FUCKING JEALOUS species. We want what others are having. And it should be like that. Else imagine a world without DREAMS. So keep DREAMING. but when u achieve that dream. ENJOY IT…

Waiting for comments.

Take care

Posted by Madhuresh on February 23, 2009

Its been a long time that i have been here well things are moving at a very fast pace n i feel i am doing nothing just nothing,everyone asks me Wat keeps u so busy wat r u upto these days are u really working so hard.. well yes i am busy true but how fruitfuly i am utilizing the time i myself do not know i am not at all doing things which i am suppose to do i do have a lot of time apart from the work that keeps me busy but the free time passes away with a wink of an eye,many ppl have already told me that the work i am doing is not gone take me any where i dunno whether its true or not but i still hope that wat i do will some way or the other help me but then y the feeling that the time, the ppl around me are running at a speed faster than light n i look at them as if i am stationary i feel i am running that too as the fastest pace then y do i feel that im not able to cope up i really do not have an answer to this

I am in a situation where in i am stopping myself from wat i wanna tell a particular person i actually do not care wat ppl will say after i tell him/her a thing but then y am i hesitating i am really really confused re well there was a time wen i used to be least bothered abt anything then came the time where in i felt i have the right to know everything now i feel am i poking my nose and hence i back off..

I know its very vague post but lots of things going on in my mind,mixed feelings,confused thoughts,restlessness n wat not i really dunno wats ahead. Every morning i hope that today ill start fresh but the aftermaths of wat happened the earlier days prevent me to do so, now i feel like forget abt achieving the aim im soon gone loose the sight of it also soon n with the fear of doing this im running hard to get closer to it well at times i feel im runing after an illusion

Yeh Hai quota-istan meri Jaan..

Posted by Madhuresh on February 23, 2009

THE ANT & GRASSHOOPER:

The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter. The Grasshopper thinks the Ant ‘s a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away. Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving. NDTV, BBC, CNN show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be that this poor Grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the Ant ‘ s house . Medha Patkar and Tan Shyamoli goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter. Amnesty International and Koffi Annan criticizes the Indian Government for not upholding the fundamental rights of the Grasshopper. The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking support to the grasshopper (many promising Heaven and Everlasting Peace for prompt support as against the wrath of God for non-compliance) . Opposition MPs stage a walkout. Left parties call for “Bharat Bandh” in West Bengal and Kerala demanding a Judicial Enquiry. CPM in Kerala immediately passes a law preventing Ants from working hard in the heat so as to bring about equality of poverty among Ants and Grasshoppers. Lalu Prasad allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Indian Railway Trains, aptly named as the ‘Grasshopper Rath’. Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the ‘ Prevention of Terrorism Against Grasshoppers Act ‘ [POTAGA], with effect from the beginning of the winter. Arjun Singh makes ‘Special Reservation’ for Grasshoppers in Educational Institutions & in Government Services. The Ant; fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes; its home is confiscated by the Government and handed over to the Grasshopper in a ceremony covered by NDTV. Arundhati Roy calls it ‘ A Triumph of Justice ‘. Lalu calls it ‘Socialistic Justice’. CPM calls it the ‘Revolutionary Resurgence of the Downtrodden’. Koffi Annan invites the Grasshopper to address the UN General Assembly. Many years later The Ant has since migrated to the US and set up a multi-billion dollar company in Silicon Valley. 100s of Grasshoppers still die of starvation despite reservation somewhere in India …. because of loosing lot of hard working Ants and feeding the Grasshoppers, India is still a developing country!!!

Though hilarious, I can emphathize with the Ant of this story.. Now just me..there would be thousands others is a similar situation because the SC decided to upheld the OBC quota implementation and that too just one day before the IIM comes up with the final offers. I wont make this post longer by discussing how bad (for the country at large) or how good (for the OBC’s) or how effective is this new law coz that has been all said soo many times already, but thinking about all of this has answered so many questions for which I didn have commensurate reasons earlier.

Amazing article not written by me.
