Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.

Written on the eve of my kid’s bridging ceremony which is held to mark their end of academic year. The idea is to cross a figurative bridge (from one teacher to the next) in front of friends and parents.
Random musings on going through their yearbooks which is a collection of photos and quotes of every important moment at school in the past year
A trackback on the child in me!
There used to be a time, in our school days, when there was this chirpy little things in us that used to surface out of nowhere whenever the teacher left out for a few minutes or no one was present to take control of the class.
This is a sarcastic tale of a little fish in the big ocean and his admiration for the ‘mightiest’ creatures of this planet! All’s fair in the so called ‘circle of life’ 🙂
“You know sometimes I wonder what we were doing just before being born on this planet. I believe every creature has the same god and I guess we were all chit-chatting with god just before being born in here.”
“What were we talking about? I guess god would have asked us, so what do you want to be this time? And guess what would I have replied?‘
“Me, I want to be a fish!”
All those things that make us ‘think’ and ‘feel’. Questions that arise in those special moments, if given a chance to foresee them all – how will things work out to be?!
If I can just capture every single thought,
Every dream and nightmare,
And spin a thread with all of
My greatest wishes and dirtiest ideas
What will I end up with?
What to call that feeling,
When I meet the love of my life
Tell I long to be with her and love her above all;
Is that the success of my love?
Or is it just the beginning of test of times?
Is it really worth it? To curb OUR thoughts and emotions considering a few sarcastic remarks?
Sometimes we think of something really well and good, probably out of ordinary, but certainly not out of focus. Then we start to review our thoughts and put ourselves in the shoes of Mr. X and Ms. Y and think what would they feel when they read this state of our mind? How would they react to this opinion of mine? Isn’t what I am doing incorrect in the eyes of him/ her? Wouldn’t it be great if they thought like so and so? And finally we end up doing the unthinkable – revisit those thoughts.
