Who Am I...

I saw this on TV a couple of days back.....
Imran Khan said : "Always compromise for your objective...Never compromise on it..."
Powerful words indeed. And it got me thinking that, yes, I want to implement whats he's said into my life...

But wait a minute...Who am I? What are my objectives? What can I compromise and not compromise on?

I have this alter ego whom I keep communicating with at all times... We discuss what course of action to take, what to do in a given situation(though I finally only do what I want to), he cheers me up when Im down and brings me back to earth when I go overboard with my inconsequential achievements... You get the gist...

Now the funny part is that in my mind's eye, I have assigned him the image of my guru(No Im not religious, I dont goto temples to please my parents or others, though I do go when I need answers from myself and Im a firm believer in only one religion... Truth and Humanity... I think that covers all there is[I'l have a post on religion someday])... Anyways, im digressing....

My guru is someone I have put my faith in.....Itz coz I need to be reminded there is someone above me... Not because I might forget myself....but to know in my weak moments.....theres someone to carry me.....and to thank in my good times for having done that..... It could have well been the stone next to me.....But there are somethings in life better left unexplained.........

Now, the point is when I have conversations with Me-Part II, amongst other things, we discuss my future...what I need to do... how I need to go about it.... And it dawned on me today that after 22 years of discussions, I still have nothing more than a clue as to who am I?

I dont know if I will walk through life being this way...but for now... I'l put my pen down and just get back to living my life... One day at a time...

Song for tonight..... from one of my all time favourite artistes..... Pink Floyd...


Wish You Were Here

We'r just two lost souls,
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year....
Running over the same old ground, what have we found?
The same old fears....
Wish you were here...


So long and so forth and seeya next time...

First of all...Some times,we do get apoplexic when we start thinking about it..well atleast i do!I at times look at the sky and ask the question,and unfortunately,just when am about to get the answer,i get distracted..why does thing happen?I've asked myself,who am I?Why have i come down to this sickbay (read earth)?Why only this country? (Not that i dont like India!,never would i say that!!!)Why only these parents?(Once again...the same as above).What am i here for?Whats my goal?So many questions,but they say.."NO TIME" to gaze through urself.Iam particularly impressed with this blog of urs..its kinda touching,u see.keep up the good job,and do write some more good stuff..and yes,1 final word..don't ever say that u need inspiration,coz i notice that u 2 can write some really fabulous stuff.Its only that,u have to recognize ur inner talent!i hope u understand what am trying to say...
