Patience

When there wasn’t any cell phone…
Even when the telephone wasn’t there,
People in their imagination could touch anyone
Living anywhere in the world…
What if, two of us have met then?

1:12 a.m.

Feeling no urge to sleep. Can feel my heart wants to enjoy the silence of the night. And why not? The soft and soothing wind is playing outside fluttering the curtains of my room every now and then.  The mind is playing with the thoughts and scenes of the book I’ve just finished reading. It’s  Coelho’s Eleven Minutes. A nice story that kept my emotions flowing all along. Alas! couldn’t find a single cigarette in my bag. It would have been great to take a few puffs.

Anyways in Eleven Minutes I found a line that goes like this…

‘a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing…’

The words have everything in them. The joy of love, the melancholy of separation and the very cliché of human nature…. confusion and contradiction.

Why is it that in spite  of experiencing the tremendous sense of peace and possession in one moment, we refrain from it at the other. Is it because we want to experience another side of LOVE… the joy in paper_love suffering. The pleasure we derive from utmost pain. Or is it the way we tend to understand the importance of our companion. Or is it because LOVE is destined to fall asleep on the bed of union. It always wants excitement of the new, the joy of discovery. Or is it because LOVE, with time, gives birth to the inevitable – distance. I don’t know which one is true… maybe some, may be all, may be none. But it’s true that we do refrain.

But one thing’s for sure… those moments of togetherness, the ecstasies and the peace, the sense of giving and possessing, the rush of blood through your body never gets lost. Hope the very authority present in those lines — the TIME  will give me the answer or is it…

…blowing in the wind?

Hail hypocrite!!!

Recently I’ve received a mail whose subject read as :

“THE BEST EMAIL OF THE YEAR”

I guess many of you have received it from your near and dear ones. The email was really very touching. It reminds me of the essence of one of Thomas Hardy’s poems I read in my childhood days. It tells…

One should not complaint about the things he/she has coz there are people around us who don’t posses the tiniest bit. Their conditions are far worse than ours… Enjoy life how it is and as it comes…

Though I received the mail from many of my friends and acquaintances but the name of one of the senders has really shocked me. The content of the email will touch any sensitive person’s heart and he/she will at once circulate it as it is written in the last few lines. But can I have the privilege to analyse the term “sensitive person”? A sensitive person is one who will try to understand or will actually understand others’ feelings when he/she expects that from others. But incidentally I felt it very strange and shocking that one of my senders don’t belong to this category of Samaritans. The person I’m talking about is one of my acquaintances (the person got demoted from friend’s post I guess…) who claim himself/herself as sensitive and care for others’ feelings.

Sorry dear you really don’t do so… So I don’t expect such a sensitive mail from you.

I don’t care about such backstabbing insensitivity. But can I guess why is this hypocrisy? It’s not the case with that person. It’s about those who wears the mask of a sensitive person (and sometimes friends) but in reality takes an about turn when sensitivity is expected from them. It’s always easier said than done. I guess the email has touched that person’s heart too… it’s quite natural. But when it matters the most the sensitiveness disappears. Can I ask why? I think they taste joy in this practice or it is a ploy to establish themselves as caring… It might also be  the case of immaturity… Another reason could be they are unable to figure out this side of their character… I don’t know.

I may be sounding sentimental… but the fact is that I’m not. I just want to know the reason why people claim themselves as one but act the other way (one can easily end this by saying it’s the human nature my friend…). And this is my blog and I’ve the right to question… So until I figure the real cause out let’s say…

(yes you guessed it right!!!)
