Have a nice weekend, folks!
Have a nice weekend, folks!
Stellar it is to be sanguine,
In times of drought.
To speak amicably
At the face of defeat.
Most fail at this
Not because they are oblivious of it
But because they run out,
Run out of patience, of hope.
To them and to myself, I say
We work ourselves up so much that we start consuming our patience and our energy in the pursuit of our goals/dreams. Stop running and learn walking.
-The Poet and the Pen
I have a theory that says,
Fiction is non-fiction in the making.
Those who transform a fiction into a fact
Change the ways of our living.
And that not many but one fiction
Resides in each of us.
Can we solve that question?
Do we have that obsession?
We seek greatness and immortality
In what lies in front of our eyes.
Maybe we fail because
It lies behind our eyes.
Find that fictitious thought,
Write it in your mind.
Heave till the fact is caught,
Fiction is yours but non-fiction is for the mankind.
We all have that one thought inside our mind which if realised and put out there in the world, it can make the world a better place.
All of a sudden I feel
that I knew you all along.
And our life is some camera reel,
Looping our movie and our song.
I know what is about to happen,
Because it’s you. How can I not know?
I see us dancing and everybody clapping,
All the while as we grow.
I haven’t seen you but I have,
In my mind you are my tomorrow.
For now I am talking to myself,
Who knows, maybe in the morrow.
“I have what I need but not what I want.
I = You.”
Part 1: It was the summer of 2017, I was doing an internship at this firm. First time away from my friends and family, I was all alone in this beautiful city. It was daunting at first but kept getting easier as time progressed.
So, What I needed was Courage and What I wanted was Company.
I found Courage and not Company and somehow it worked out quite well. Till date that city holds a pivotal point in my story as it left a huge impression on me and my character. I went there as a boy and came out as this independent man. I Love You, Pune.
Part 2: Let’s skip 6 months into the future, it was placement season in my college. Only 5-10 core industries from my domain decided to show up with various profile. This news created havoc in the minds of soon to be Graduates.
Again, What I needed was Calmness and What I wanted was an easy way out.
I was visited by calmness and in all the companies I sat for, I did good. In the end I chose to be in the firm I am today, rejecting another great company. My want was attained by what I needed.
Part 3: They say you rarely find friends in the corporate world. It’s all so competitive and harsh. I was separated from all my dear ones as I was the only one from Mechanical Engineering and rest all were from the IT sector. After 4 years of companionship, I was alone… really alone.
I needed to stay positive but I wanted Friends.
Life never takes more than what it can give. I lost my friends in the process due to distance and choices but that didn’t stop me from being me. I stayed positive, played the good guy and gradually, in lieu of 4 I was blessed with 6 amazingly supportive and caring friends who also happen to be my colleagues. I say this because they were there when I needed them. A friend in need is a friend indeed, right?
So, if I summarize, I can safely say that we always get what we need and that eventually gets us what we want. So, be happy with what you get because it is what you actually want.
I wish you get what you need, soon.
Have a nice day and please share this with as many as you can. Who knows, maybe someone needs to read this…
