Are you really what you are?

thinking about life

Running from the own shadow
Reading the book kept on the shelf
Here I have come in the light's glow
In search for myself!

Who are you really? Are you the person who hides from the world or is protected from the world by the supreme? Similar questions I ponder upon whenever I feel something amiss.The discussion about my my very own existence seems to end nowhere. There is light at the other end of the tunnel, they say. My question is, 'How long is the tunnel? 

Several times I surmise the facts that may or may not be wrong. Either they would be partially right, either partially wrong. As a kid, when you are protected from the evil society, you tend to be someone who is lacking the natural vigor, the valor is missing. The natural environment needed for it to flourish is not provided.

Another saying is, when the time bestows its magic upon thou, you may get the prowess to fight even the hardest of the battles in life. Where is the preparation? What role the preparation plays then? Or is it best to say that preparation is something pre planned by the destiny?  

The world is a stage. Your participation is mandatory. You choose the characters, you choose your own friends, you make your own enemies, you live as you wish. Is this really you?

A lot of questions popping up in my mind as I sit down and write this post on the most controversial question, 'Are you really what you really are?'

Lurking in the jungle
Waiting for the night to pass
Surrounded by the rumble
I am alive, alas!   

Living in the world so wild (in a different way though), the life is nothing more than a roller coaster ride. The understanding that once existed is hiding somewhere behind a large cloud of deep thought, which never ceases. 

A voice from within the deep corners of the head is shouting, screaming to be let out from the doors bolted long time ago, but I guess the outside noise is suffice to quiet it. Isn't it so?

Overpowered by the emotions
Of the angels and the demons
Within all these commotions
Find yourself, in the long lost sermons!

Her Love is Criminal!

Saurabh Chawla | 0 Comments|


Her looks so killing
Stabbing me from a distance
In the wind so chilling
The reason of my existence

She crossed my way
Even crossed my mind
In the night and in the day
Not liking the ways that bind

Conquered by an obsession
Or just a mere addiction
Reluctant, I make a confession
I'm tired of this affliction

One day I'm going to find her
Whatever it takes to get there
This crazy winter is a blur
But I'm no one to care

Inebriated by the thoughts
A feeling which is so subliminal
It steals away my heart in shots
Her love is so criminal!

Independance is a lie!

Independence – This word is used several times. No matter, this word has a deep meaning and feelings attached to it, but still its imperative to understand the true essence of it.

Are we truly independent? Today, this question came to my mind when I was in a bank to get my Aadhar card linked to my account. I saw people running here and there to get their documents signed to get their payments cleared. I was surprised to see how dependent the system is. One person clears the document, then it is transferred to a person senior to that person for the clearance and then to the third and so on till the final person hands on the payment to the person.

How much dependence is there in a simple process of getting your own payment cleared from your own account! Dependence is everywhere, be it a bank, a job, or a business. The dependence can be on both living or non-living resources.

To understand the true Independence, we need to dig deeper into the activities we adhere our lives to. To get a job, degree is necessary. So, a job is dependent on your educational qualification. One thing leads to another creating a chain of events. With good educational qualification you get a job which earns you a decent salary which in turn makes you financially secure to get married, buy a house, raise children etc.

These chains of events are linked to the basic event (education in this case) in which you did well to get that decent money to live with ease. Looking around yourself, do you feel you are independent?

You rely on vegetables, fruits, trees, nature to survive. Nature is also dependent on you to take care of it. In return, we are only damaging it and nothing else.

Everything is dependent on something. It needs a certain input to give a certain, needed output. Nothing is completely independent except it is out of control. From that perspective, it is dependence which is driving the people and not the independence.

There are people who simply walk clueless, run here and there without knowing what is truly needed to be done of this valuable life. Some of the people follow the normal norms of the society, grow up, get educated, get a job, get married, have children, raise them and eventually, die. Few of the ones, clear out the clutter from the life and make out of every moment. These are the people who live a content life. The good news is that, they die without any regrets.

From birth till death, a person lives with dependence on something or the other. Is the word independent overrated? Or is it underrated? What’s your take on it?

Independence is something which is lacking. Nothing is independent. Even the human body is dependent on oxygen to survive!
