Choices, Questions and Answers.



Life is this infinite loop of choices, questions and answers.
Choices which you take define you, make you what you are and distinguish you from others. Others here refers to the other inhabitants of this world who also might have chosen that same path which you chose at one point or are choosing right now. Sometimes choices are made under pressure and we keep giving excuses like "I didn't have a choice" but all of us need to understand that even if you didn't have a choice, you did make one eventually. You chose the path which you thought is the 'most convenient  at that very point. So, now if you've made that choice then take responsibility for it. One of my friends told me this and I tell this to everyone and to myself that never 'regret'. Never ever should you be crying over the choices you made which might've played a role in get  you to wherever you are.
Questions are infine themselves. If we go into that chain of thought we can create a whole new world of it, of questions and mazes and puzzles which will keep us occupied throughout or whole life. The whole purpose of our existence is a very big question. If we fall into this loop we either just might keep exploring all our lives and become oblivious to all the other things that happen. The weather, the time, day or night, nothing would matter. Only one thing would exist and look clear and real and that would be questions. Questions which you ask to yourself, to the world, to science, to god, to man, to the creator, to the genetics, to circumstances, to choices, to the air, the wind, the water and life. These questions will entangle you into the cobwebs of other questions which would erupt as soon as you would move deeper into the process of finding the answers to those questions.
So your life would might just make you end up with all of those great people who by asking questions have made a name for themselves. The list starts from Adam who asked himself weather to eat the apple or not and ate it making a choice after asking a question to Newton who questioned the falling of an apple and made one of the most significant discoveries in human history. All of these great people asked questions and made choices, choices to learn and choices to explore are there sitting tight in their hall of fame. They are immortal in one sense that their name still goes on without any effort, they still live after being released from the chains of mortal life.
Answers are what you find on your journey and I can't elaborate on that because the journey is yours and so are the questions, so how can I know the answers?
All I have to say is that think, think before you make a choice, before you ask a question,before you know an answer. Know where your choices would lead you, if its a gamble, let it be but know that it is and it might take you anywhere it wants to. As they say about questions, "Ask the right questions and you just might find enlightenment." and about answers, "Ask questions only when you want to know the answers, the answers which you can handle. The answers you want to handle." Because one thing that I have realised in my life is that no one talks about a failures but success stories are what make the news. You never know how many have failed with the answer, asking the wrong questions, making the wrong choices, finding the wrong answers.
Towards the end, its your choice. Either to find answers to your questions or move in the same straight line which leads you one destination where every man reaches at the end. Death. Without any questions, without any answers and with choices of others.

Today, I cannot believe in anything

Today, I cannot believe in anything. I feel like I am doublechecking everything I hear from multiple sources to support or to refute any opinion or act. I was born in '94 so I didn't always have the internet at my disposal, I saw it flourish and today I am partially afraid of it.

It reminds me of the various books and articles I have read on dystopian societies, which I always thought were great, but fiction. Today, I think I was wrong. I live in a world where news channels show what drives ratings so that more people view the news channels and hence they can sell advertising spots for a higher price. Today I see people sharing their views and getting attacked. Today, I feel disturbed, afraid and confused.

In classic dystopian fiction, there is generally an authoritarian government. Fortunately, we're not there (yet). Not in all parts of the world. There would be people watching you everywhere, everytime and the government will have the power to sniff you out anytime they…

Four liners - The Water Set

These are some 4 line poems which I write when I am slightly low and want to feel better. Apparently, getting it out of my system is a real solution which works for me 🤷🏻‍♂️

Drowning and Ducks
I drowned before I swam,
No ducks were my friends,
I swim with my eyes to the floor,
Mostly, I am still alone.

Gallows
Disappointed by the land,
I flew to the turbulent seas,
The waves drowned me this time,
I washed up on the beach.

More water

Fishes swam to sing,
I drowned myself to hear them,
Fishes died breathing the fresh air,
I grew a pair of gills.

I M, the attention eating plague

IM Instant messaging
Background: I have a gift, the gift is the ability to sleep almost anywhere instantly and most of the time my phone is mostly on ‘silent mode’, so I never hear the beeps. Infact, sometimes I get shocked when I hear an unfamiliar sound coming out of my pants. 👖 (pant emoji is the fun most thing I discovered today)
Trigger incident: As usual, I was sleeping on my way to the airport and this time the only difference was that my mobile was not on silent. While I was listening to Damien Rice and getting ready to fall asleep, I hear a ping. I didn’t open my eyes but then I heard 7 more. After the first one, I had told myself that it is okay to let go one text but it still took mental processing. However, when the flurry started then I was just so impatient that anything could have happened. I tried to rationalize and wait but realized it was just me worrying about what they could have been and wasting time on that rather than fixing the instant gratification monkey 🐒wi…
