If an idea is worth dying for, it is most certainly worth living for.
Ok, to be frank, I don’t know what that exactly means. It just came out of nowhere. But I do know this for certain. An idea can change your life. And no, I did not mean the stupid Idea network. Fucking Abhishek Bachan spoiled it for the whole world. Sirji my ass.
So anyways, I was listening to this music and thats when my mind went on a philosophical walk. It often does that.

I was never an ‘avid’ anything.
From my childhood, I was mediocre in just about everything. Sports, games, studies, fashion, being cool, making jokes, talking trash, and a lot other embarrassing things. But nonetheless, I was a happy kid… relatively.
I was a 90’s kid. It was a great time to be a ‘kid’. To grow up as one I mean. I believe that, this was the last generation that had any innocence while growing up. The reason I say this is because kids these days are A1 branded assholes. Spoiled to the bone, disrespecting, attitude pumped up, egotistical punks.
When I was growing up, we had to earn everything. Everything we got was a prize. Everything was hidden away, out of sight. We had to wait it out. There was this suspense in everything.
Music for example. Before an album came out, there was only news and gossips… building up the hype and all. Then, there was this occasional peak in the radios. We used to save up all the little money, gather it up, put ’em all together and by that cassette. Cassettes. Remember cassettes. The lovely album arts. I used to collect my favorite album arts. Ahhh, a proud collection it was.
And then the internet happened. Access to unlimited of everything. Innocence and patience were brutally raped. I’m not complaining, I’m all for the unbelievably super high speed internet that could download 1gb in 5 mins, the next generation cloud computing shit and the chip-in-your-brain thing. I’m just saying, the thrill of the waiting is not like it used to be.

Instant love is a rare thing isn’t it?
When it comes to music, from the blistering amount of new tunes/albums we come across today, we miss heaps of good ones. And even when we find one, they get over written very soon. Its a sad fact.
But there are some that we really get attached to. A tune with a heavy, emotional content that just swoops your feelings in the first listen. This is one of that for me. This is my new found wonder.

My vacation time is approaching very quick.
As much I want a vacation, I just don’t know where to go. That’s more frustration than the average installation in your Windows getting stuck at 99%. The even more fucked up part is, none of my friends are free at that particular time. And here is the kicker, the coming week is Deepavali, everyone is getting a weeks holiday. Me – working.
Anyhooo, looking at the brighter side, I still have a vacation. And I have to decide where I ought to be going. I came across this video which is quiet inspiring. And b e a utifully edited with a delightful background music.
I have always loved the concept of travelling. But I have never had the strength or the money or the time for it. Ok, I know that’s just a lame excuse. What am I to do, it just the way I have been.
And I am going to change that. Every year, from this point on I shall go to a place where I have never gone. This is not a resolution, it is not a promise. It is simply a plan/idea that I am going to keep up….. try to keep up.
