the opportunist

  I have observed this quite often that the principally ‘right’ actions done under unfavourable circumstances become ‘wrong’, where as the ‘wrong’ things done under favourable circumstances become perfectly ‘right’.

   An idealist will argue that it is the power of the convictions of actions that make the circumstances favourable or unfavourable, where as a realist may at times give in to the hands of circumstances to bless the actions the character of being right or wrong.

   Luckily, I have lately become an opportunist.


Once in a while!

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think
Enjoy yourself, while you’re still in the pink
The years go by, as quickly as a wink 
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think

 I can safely say that for the past quite a lot of time I have been particularly diligent towards my studies. But this last assessment, I have very effectively screwed up. Today however, happens to be the first day of the month with no assessments (I readily put my faith in such promises), and such a thing demands a little celebration.

You work and work for years and years, you’re always on the go
You never take a minute off, too busy makin’ dough
Someday you say, you’ll have your fun, when you’re a millionaire
Imagine all the fun you’ll have in your old rockin’ chair

 It was a lazy day. Woke up around 6 am and then deliberately slept again. All I practically did today was sleep and read this book by Mohsin Hamid that I’ve been longing to read for a while. Then, I just got out of my room and started walking. Aimlessly.


In the stillness of time and away from all noise, there is a pleasure that can not be described. Once in a while, we need to relax. Once in a while, we need to empty our heads and think of nothing but that black bird, who is watching you and the fat cat, lying and yawning and look how clear is the sunshine. So pure. So warm. And the way everything glows in this golden light. Bright yet soft. Don’t they make you feel alive? What can be more exhilarating? Its a luxury we sure all can afford….at least, once in a while.


You’re gonna take that ocean trip, no matter come what may
You’ve got your reservations made, but you just can’t get away
Next year for sure, you’ll see the world, you’ll really get around
But how far can you travel when you’re six feet underground?
(Enjoy Yourself- Guy Lombardo)

my friend, I’m loving you……

    I have seen you around quite a lot of times. I have known you for quite a lot of time, yet we never met before. Now that we have met. Now that I’m getting to really know you. Now that I see you… friend, I’m loving you.

   I pray for you. Like your company. Glad to have you around. You are not perfect, and still I like you. Its your honesty that makes me trust you and I wish for you all that is the best there ever can be. I like to hear you laugh and to see you smile. I want you to be always happy and that is how I know my friend, I’m loving you.
