The beautiful contradiction problem!

Thinking about thinking of you
Summertime think it was June
Yeah think it was June

I guess, somewhere down the line, it does come to self-examination. There’s a reason for it, and its called insecurity. How can I keep on being the same everyday, what forces us to play cogs on the wheel, why are we so redundant?

Laying back, head on the grass
Children grown having some laughs
Yeah having some laughs

Its interesting, but if I may be allowed to manipulate Coelho, “God rarely reveals the future, and if he does, all that comes of it is the associated deja vu.” Do I believe, whatever doesn’t concern you, is not for you? I guess yeah. Have i been largely ignorant, uninterested in whatever went on? Am i a sinner for caring?

Made me feel like the one
Made me feel like the one
The one
Made me feel like the one
Made me feel like the one
The one

The signs lately do indicate that tendency of mine. To add to it, i’ve been labelled prejudiced and cold.
Maybe it’s for real. But it’s just me, dats how i role.

Drinking back, drinking for two
Drinking with you
And drinking was new

So what were the things that made me this. I guess, for starters, i always felt, that my only reason for existence was to be the king of the world. That i was the center around which the world was supposed to revolve, that everyone around was just a small part in my story.

Sleeping in the back of my car
We never went far
Needed to go far

And that vision shattered, I lost things, I shudnt have….

Made me feel like the one
Made me feel like the one
The one
Made me feel like the one
Made me feel like the one
The one

So what’s the beauty of self-contradiction? Is it about opening your eyes?

I don’t know where we are going now
I don’t know where we are going now

Do i finally recognize the stranger in myself? Do i see the need to change? Do i understand what i missed?

Wake up cold coffee and juice
Remembering you
What happened to you?

Maybe its too late. Or maybe thats just a fear? What if i cud go back? How does one go back in time? I’d love to go back in time…..

I wonder if we’ll meet again
Talk about us instead
Talk about why did it end

Its not that i regret being where i am, but i regret being this thing that i am. I believe i owe an apology to all those i wronged. But should i apologize? Do i apologize?

Made me feel like the one
Made me feel like the one
The one
Made me feel like the one
Made me feel like the one
The one

NO SCREW U PEOPLE, U’RE STILL A PART OF MY STORY!

I don’t know where we are going now
I don’t know where we are going now

The above lines were written under the influence of a splendid track by The Stereophonics, namely Dakota, and to the author’s best knowledge, none of it is true. If u belvd. them, then he did you in!! A beautiful contradiction…. Do listen to it, the music will only make it better.

So take a look at me now
So take a look at me now

Whats New….

Its been a while since i last blogged, but it doesn’t seem as if many missed my views….

So anyways, moving on, what compels me to take the pains today, is the fact that this date (11/08/2008 ) will always be remembered for a very special moment, in my country’s history.

I also remember the date because i lost a loved one, on this very date, 11 years ago.

The glitter of GOLD is not new to Indians, famous for their explicit gold ornaments, and traditional gold based jewelery. But, GOLD associated with sport has been a rarity, that still continues to amaze the +1bn brain exercising Indians.

Why aren’t we so adept at the skill of finishing tops, when it comes to sport?

The primary reason I see, would probably not be the lack of infrastructure, and neither will it be shortage of funds ( though it would be the favorite nominee for secondary reason ), but rather the indifference towards sports. Its more in the mindset of Indians, to be academic, rather than athletic. Hence we may produce some of the most intelligent scientists, the most successful businessmen, the most efficient of economists, and even the best Grand Masters ( chess ), but not world-beating cross-country runners.

Do I see this as a failure on our part?

No, definitely not, we are aces when it comes to the games of the mind ( not necessarily mind games )
, we are the Gold’s there, and that’s what counts, to be among the best, where you thrive to be the best.

So what makes today so remarkable for this nation?

That man ABHINAV BINDRA! I must confess I knew very little of this champion, before 10.30 am today, and still don’t know much of his past exploits..but he’ll always be remembered for what he accomplished today.

He reached heights, no Indian, male or female, had reached before, HE WROTE HIS NAME IN GOLD.

He became the first ever individual Olympic Gold medalist for India, by clinching gold in the 10m Air Rifle event at Beijing. What he has achieved will not be completely justified by my words, & hence I wouldn’t divulge too much into singing laurels.

All I can say is: I SALUTE U ABHINAV, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, U MAKE ME PROUD, U MAKE INDIA PROUD.
