The Beginning

The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story, and writes another.” - James Matthew Barrie

Our lives are stories. Every one is unique and would make a movie worth watching and yet we have no idea about the way the story shapes up – unexpected twists and turns are all too common, as you grow older you realize the butterfly effect of your past.

“No matter how much you change you still have to pay the price for the things you have done” – The Town

The past has a strange way of catching up with us. In your deepest moments of despair you remember Macbeth and wonder if all that you do is worth it.

“Out, out, brief candle!

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player

That struts and frets his hour upon the stage

And then is heard no more:

And it doesn’t help if you give yourself a New Year’s Gift in the form of a Dilbert! But then, whether you get depressed reading it and realising how much of it is true, or you laugh it away is completely up to you.

End of a year suddenly might make you wonder and question a lot of issues. But then you are to decide if you would want to get into a loop of self pity or you would rather laugh your day away.

A strange sense of calm resides at the beginning after the churn. Peace resides within us. The point is that there’s a secret garden for each of us to find and when we find it the world around seems more beautiful.

Jo karna hain boss, isi life mein karna hain.
