I Can’t Believe I am Writing This!!!

Disclaimer- This post is in no way supposed to be sexist. Neither does this reflect my usual thinking pattern. Whatever I am going to write is going to haunt me for the rest of my life…But still…

I don’t know how I arrived at his point.

I am so glad that I am not a girl. Not because of chauvinistic reasons. It’s just that I am way too self conscious as it is. I can’t even begin to imagine what it would have been like if I was a girl.

Just that in our current social makeup..(Hell any goddamn social makeup for the matter..) girls get more attention than they want. Mostly it is not even civilized.

Girls definitely have some advantages in a civilized society. But the bonds that come with it might be frustrating.

The amount of unwanted attentions that girls get is freaky. And damn scary.

There is no point to this post. It was just me realizing that girls kinda have it tougher , much tougher than guys in some situations.

PS-Though there are advantages too…. Ever seen a ‘Mama’ ask a pleading girl for fine??  Or a mob beat a girl up if she hits a guy..?  😀

When The World Was Still New

leave a comment »

I am one of those people who doesn’t really like kids much. Babies are wonderful. But kids…….dunno.. They are too noisy, too hyperactive and too “kiddish”.

I refrain from paying any attention unless and until they are on a mission to destroy my possessions. But for a change I decided to pay attention to them during my brother’s wedding .

Now what follows is just my interpretation. Maybe it is right or maybe it is just me acting too smart…

I always wondered why kids get excited about the smallest of things. Why switching on a fan gives them more pleasure than what Edmund Hilary felt after climbing Everest. The only conclusion I could come to, was this…..

The world is still new to them. Everything around them has a novelty value. Each chore an adventure. Each pat on the back akin to an award. It still excites them. Gives them a thrill that cannot be described. They still have a pure optimistic view of life.

We grown ups rarely stop and think about everyday wonders of life. Too busy making it more complex than it is. Giving it more importance than it deserves. Enjoying it less that what it deserves. We develop a cynical and sardonic view about life. A curse of the world around us…

The responsibilities , pressure of expectations, fear of failure. We become too “intelligent” for our own good. A kid sees more good in life than we will ever do. Even the most optimistic of us would be a pessimistic between a bunch of 5 yrs old. Pessimism is not a way of living or thinking. It’s just what we get out of life, living for a certain number of years. We want too many things out of life. Our happiness governed by too many factors.

I miss that thrill. The first bicycle ride, the first zoo trip. Somehow life has become too big for such things……..

Quoting Arnie— I am back!

At least I hope I am….

There has been a humongous gap in my blogging. The reason for it was my elder brothers wedding. That was the most fun I have had ever. Though still find it a bit difficult to comprehend that he is married. Kinda lets me know that even I am growing up….

Anyway…I hope I will be more consistent (and as this post shows, I should be less self-indulgent and more quality concious…) ..
