Sad

Sadness

It’s there

In me

Residing

Like it’s home!

Destined

Like a leaf is, to part away

Or

Like fish is, to not

It’s beautiful

And magnificent

to be ….just …. sad!

Death

“It’s me”, “it” mentioned…feebly…not wanting to come across very strongly. It’s not in fashion now a days….

“What now”,irritated voice answered,”it” felt euphoric,

“Shall we!”, it replied,”it’s been long time that you heard me”

“Yeaaaah however not yet, I have work…”, irritation had given way to profound sadness…yet again!

It..inner voice…went back…to wait… yet again…to slow death…eerily slow….!!

All the ways …

There are many way to do things … here I mean pay your tribute etc. etc. however this was one way I saw recently

There is a giveaway for who guesses it right!

Beginning … yet again…

55 fiction

It has been quite some time that this space has not seen any new post. There had been few attempts to revive it and it crashed each time. Though it is difficult to write when one’s mind is somewhere else though it could be said for many other forms of art where people or artists focus on their craft despite of all the odds and triumph. I might not an artist after all.

What happened with me? It is difficult to say because I am not sure if I ever considered it my Craft and myself a craftsman. It just come out as by product of my wandering. May that’s what it became – a by product- which stopped to happen once these efforts focused somewhere other direction.

Hope to write more often.

The day…

When we travel or not, nonetheless, there are days those are dear to us and we like to think about those days on the other hand there are some other days those are etched in our memory as a gash and we don’t like to about those days. These are quite clear classification and pretty much sorted. Then there comes the third one, the days we are not sure about, was it bad or good, I learn a word for such days, “weird”

These are the days when you start to feel really bad and something nice turns up and then when you start feel good and a turn and it keeps happening whole day one by one as if keeping the balance of the day. It is looking at one’s life in nutshell of one day’s time.

life as it goes by, from a window of train

It makes you feel funny as at the end of the day you can’t decide how to feel about the day and that’s where your personality type comes in play, that is, whether you are optimistic and celebrate life like it is a game and look at the glass half full or you are one pessimistic and concerns are more important to you compared to celebration and you are the one who look at glass half empty. It becomes important as that decides on these weird days that how and what mood you will take with you to bed.

Ultimately it is you who can make a conscious choice of being happy or sad or indifferent about something or may be everything, let alone a day!

An Evening – 2

An evening at India Gate, New Delhi

An Evening

This was a hot but lovely evening and I happened to be at India Gate, New Delhi. India Gate happens to be surrounded by lawns and people come there and look at the majestic figure of war, struggle, freedom,  sacrifice which India of course is.

On this evening, I did the same and instagramed about it as well earlier

Running hawkers

I saw some hawkers running with their material while looking behind occasionally as if somebody was following them. Some of them even entered into the water body and hid their wares in water. Looking at them, it certainly became a matter of amusement and I could not help it but ask.

It turned out local municipal corporation people were confiscating their stuff so that they could not sell it there as they were not allowed to use the site for the purpose. These were the people who made their living by doing these odd jobs and selling food, snacks & knick knack at this kind of busy places.

Indeed they were doing it illegally but authorities were not giving a solution but mere a scare. One of hawker shared,”looks like their salaries are delayed and they want some money, as usual”

Life just took a deep sigh and moved on.

Sports travel?

Tonight India & Pakistan are playing one day international cricket match between them in England and excitement in these two country is palpable. One can go anywhere and every where in restaurants to pubs to clubs and one is thing is playing on almost all the screens. The cricket game. Many people have gone to the extent of taking flights to England just to watch the match.

So as a traveller, how likely it is for you to spend on a costly flight ticket for a game of say tournament. I read a lot about soccer or football love of people and how many of the fan clubs travel with their teams unofficially mostly pooling their own money many times to support their favourite teams and to cheer for them.

The world cups of soccer are madness and then there are series like European Premier League etc. Tennis is huge game in many country and people follow Wimbledon, US Open, Australian Open, French Open on a scale and enthusiasm unimaginable for many other. Polo, Golf, F1 Moto GP are other few games garnering fame, money and eyeball around the world at some scale of other.

However, which game we could say is biggest travel motivator? It seems football/ Soccer will beat any game hands down for top spot mobilising 100+ countries to compete for coveted trophy and mobilising people as well to travel and go around the place.

It would be good to hear from any of you to hear about your travel story motivated by sports in particular, however, for now let’s see the Cricket Match. #Ind v/s #Pak. #ChampiansTrophy #Edgbaston #England #Cricket #Game

Their eyes met.

He almost murmured hesitantly,”is this seat taken?”

“I hope not” She replied smiling . To start a conversation which went on …

 

#tragedy #Machester

It is sad, really sad to see, we get hurt & don’t learn.

I don’t watch, read, hear news by any direct means. I used to be news hogger but then I realised it all in vain. However I get to know things in this high tech – high speed times by people anyway. In my Facebook feed, over heard while travelling, as part of conversation from somebody, major events anyway come to my notice as I heard about #Manchester #tragedy and then could not help but google it and checked on people who I know in Manchester & UK mostly.

So there is continues new report flooding and suggesting it was a #suicide #attack means somebody set him/her/them selves off the bomb, so they can killed few innocents. Its tragic & sad that innocent people are dead but do we learn? Are not we, as human race, self destructive mode?

We hope, those get strength to endure, grieve !
