Go Live!

“Paayaliya, paayaliya kahe ke piya ghar jaaun
Paayaliya, paayaliyaa…”

The soft melody rings in the ears, and though the beats dissolve with time, the euphony stays in the mind.
Whats better than to listen to the sounds of love in the dead of night. Complete silence, perfect harmony. This is the time when my brain is relaxed, body soothed, and thats why I prefer studying in the late hours every day. Last night, however, was different. Instead of concentrating on Barron’s, I was focussing on the irony this song represents.
Such a soulful number, from such a bold and harsh movie; and the lyrics are ironical too. Strangely, none of the leading ladies in the movie gets to go to their piya’s ghar. This is what life’s all about. Its predictable, surprising, boring, exciting, difficult, simple, all at the same time. With the conception of such idea, my thought process gained momentum, and before I could stop myself, I was penning down the jumbled words then echoing in my mind in a clean manner. Here’s what I wrote on Life last night :
An unfathomable mystery, an unsolved riddle, an unquenchable thirst, an endless search – Life is the only thing that has eluded man’s logical mind for centuries. It does not succumb to any reasoning the brain provides, nor does it works on the heart’s orders, thus, for once, calling it quits between the two decision makers.
Life has its own decisions and its own ways to implement them. This may point towards a unified supreme power, which undoubtedly, is looking over everyone, guiding everyone’s life. You may feel happy when you achieve your preset goal, but the knowledge that the aim was always meant to be fulfilled by you, escapes your notice. On the other hand, you may toil day and night for that one particular accolade, and suddenly life may spring up a bouncer at you, bowling you over.
Good – Bad, Beautiful – Ugly, Joy – Sorrow, Right – Wrong, Black – White, life does not know, nor does it care. It throws surprises at you, surprises that may be good or bad, beautiful or ugly, joyful or sad, right or wrong, black or white. It does not care if you are engulfed in gloom, or are enjoying radiant happiness. You are but a whit to it, something insignificant, something to be tried and tested, to be reused and recycled, to be judged and misjudged, to be convicted and acquitted, to be captured and thrown. It takes you through a roller – coaster ride, bumping you all the way up and down all the slides; and on the basis of your performance in the ride, it gauges you, decides upon right to live and determines the way you’ll live.
But does that mean that you should give in, succumb to its pressure and act as a defeatist?
NO, period.
Because that unified supreme power which gave life such control, bestowed upon you two of the most precious gifts in the universe – a thinking brain and a feeling heart.
Raise your head, stand up to the challenges, and defeat life, only then can YOU succeed. Make your heart feel, give voice to your conscience, make your brain think, put thoughts into actions. Dont worry if life confiscates your happiness, fight the gloom and flash a brilliant smile. No problem if you get thrown in a deeply dug pit, climb back up. Life’s kick shouldn’t scare you, rather it should make you stand on your feet again. Break the shackles life wants to arrest you into, instead extend your hands and tie it up. Dont go the way life takes you, take life the way YOU want to go. Remember, you are born to live, you are not living because you are born.
Go Live!

    This is from a movie i saw recently….

    There’s an old joke – two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of ’em says, “Boy, the food at this place is really terrible.” The other one says, “Yeah, I know; and such small portions.” Well, that’s essentially how I feel about life – full of loneliness, and misery, and suffering, and unhappiness, and it’s all over much too quickly.

    Bravo!!!!..You echoed my thoughts…life is all about taking things as they come and facing them with the best and most positive outcome in mind…then whatever is in store will happen for sure, but at least u personally have that satisfaction that u did ur best, and did not bow down to circumstances, which is always the case of a loser…live, laugh and love!!!You never know what tomorrow may bring…
