The sloppy saturday woke up with the the diwali stamp on it this week....
i as usual had a yet another dull diwali.. (...i have been through some real bad shit during earlier diwali times...so compared to that this diwali was way too good if u ask me .. )
as i was sitting in my room writting assignments (yes i do ta at home ...) evry now n then i wud hear bhooom or phoong or the clikering of the lavangi ...n it drove me maddd ......
i was like ... "ohhh my god ... wud u jus !!.. stoppp itt....!!! for haven'sss sake " n then i went to the window n saw these kids doing those dumb things that kids usually do ....n i was suddenly transported back in time
u know how it is sometimes
u see something that reminds u of ur past
yaa i was jus like these kids bak then ...
i used to love all the crakers n the smoke n the rockets ....n the noise..
n the oldies wud always complain bout the noise n all . n i used to think wat losers .. how can they not like alll these noises . isnt that wat its all bout ...isnt diwali all about lights n crackers ..
n i used to think to hell with them ; when i grow up ; i m goin to help these kids with the crackers.. n not be complaining about all the noise n all ..n here i am. not even old yet . in my 20's already finding these crackers annoying (which they actually are ,,!! they r a big nuisance. which should be banned not just because i find them irritating but also because of serious environmental problems. n also because they can be dangerous for kids n for adults likewise .. )
n so i found myself just staring out of the window with a smile on my face looking at these kids enjoying their life ...their tension free life . without n e responsibilty . n without having n e assignments to complete .( somewher down the line .. in our efforts to achieve n grow we have forgotten how to live . its one thing we can learn from these kids.)
n such r the ironies of life .i remember once having read a poem in one of my school books which was bout this leaf that had fallen down n had gone all brown .. n it looked up at all the green leaves..surprisingly not with jealousy. but with a smile cause he saw the irony of life right ther .even he used to laugh at all the fallen leaves from up above ther n used to think he wudn end up like them. n today he knows bettr n smiles at all the leaves who r laughing at him thinking have fun guys cause someday u will fall too .. someday u will not be needed n e more . so enjoy every moment now when u can .
n getting old is perfectly fine as well . its just the process of evolution . when u have had ur share of fun. u get bored n move on as it is ..to the next level
similarly today after 4 years of college when i see the first years making all the nosie n goin ga ga about thier coll today n i sit ther alone in the canteen looking for my friends n thinking wat has changed in the past years u will still find me always weaing a smile on my face ...
i have had my share of fun . i have been ther ,, done that .. n m ready to graduate to the next level .
i don like all things that i use to like earlier on.... like i find crackers as total disrespect for money n environment n irritating . but its fine .with changing times ..times change !!!!
