Nature aur Naya saal!

On this land you don’t drive on the left side of the road, as like what our colonial rulers left us with, but we drive on what is left of the road. Furthermore, what is left of anything, in and around us, is what we have.

Its been a long time since I mentioned my driving tales. There have been no lack of them, to start with, but what I feel is that you don’t stop wondering of ‘whys’ of the road when the off-road adventures become too crazed up. But I do have some issues with bikers! People I understand that traveling on a bike makes every sense of your humanly body to become active and you feel the feeling of flying…. But fellows I wish to remind you kay motor aur motarsiikaal dono main mayoos kun toor par urnay wala gear nahi hai! Please don’t try swiping your bikes through spaces at traffic signals! Its excruciating to bare!

While on the other part of the world a movie just got canceled in Hollywood. All it took was a hack of intolerance.  And the new year has arrived. Viola! It is now on Youtube and the entire internet. One hiccup for cinema owners… while the movie enjoys the new twist in mass entertainment industry’s turn in history.

 Life…. -signs- -cliché-

Growing up again… it is like I have one season final and I had to move on to the start of another brand new season. Fingers crossed as always, as for success or failure, it is too blurry to be defined yet again. It is like eating an allo anda pratha! you are just not sure which you wish was the one you wanted more, the crispy salty fried anda or the preserved meshed spiced-up allo. But you always feel that even though you enjoyed it, still one of the two are missing the edge. Unfortunately you are full now and that was all that mattered from the start till the end.

Hello new year, we meet again. And it’s the same old bone crushing cold. How symbolic is your arrival. 2015! you naya saal!

What we imagine and what movies made us imagine… everything is meant to fall short of it. Neither we have our better selves nor do we have flying cars. What we have is our scared-survived self with more emotional baggage and cars with no airbags.

Due to the havoc created by the terrorism in the last few decades, the world has had some time to revisit the perception of what is Che Guevara and what is Che Guevara gone-wrong! The young-ones have shifted their teen-perception of ‘cool’ to what-works-perception of ‘cool’ in their adult life. The world is not the only thing rolling you know!

Meanwhile at the helm of power, the aristocrats and the democrats are again trying to find quicker, cheaper and ‘democratic’ decisions, to smooth out the hiccups of the current past. How inconveniently ironic of slower, extravagant and self-centered ones! 
The terrible paradox that this year also did not fail to reemphasize is that nature of man is so obvious and still so complex to resolve. 

p.s. the winter is here! And the sui gas has gone somewhere! ab rome mein chicken karahi kaisay pakay gi! Bhai koi cylinder doondh kar lao ab!

Comedy aur crickut!

There is no greater tragedy for a nation to have its books lost in collateral damage of war and equally tragic is for its museums to be burned down. The ashes would not only sweep clean the slate of its history and culture, but also alienate the current generation from glories of their ancestors, the sad tale of the lost generation.
We have reached a point in globalization where the fruits are either too competitive for the human society to bare on its annual bank roll or the sacrifice for the preservation of status quo is horrendously beefed up by our tantamount sense of insecurity. Nonetheless, we have now realized that, sadness and complications in life, are the mainstay.
So, if you look at your troubled self and wonder… why the hell am I suffering from stagnation! Well, friend, you are not the only one and neither are you alone. The person next to you might not be with a sad/irritated look but the next to that one, sure hell is! In this ‘civilized world’ that we happen to live in, has its… what we call… side effects. There is no remedy for the chaos, because in-fact, the chaos is normal. So if you want to grow as in person... first embrace the chaos.
 So here I am, unloading the wit and wisdom, about the stuff you sure are not bothered about and definitely don’t have the will to waste your time over. Time, the one thing you never efficiently utilize yourself but it definitely troubles you if its not serving up to your wishes! So why excruciate you people any further and lets get to the laughing business!
For instance, the series of funny coincidences that keep on happening in this country… life in this land is comedy plus errors. 
An entire province goes to darkness, when the political rivals are about to stage a massive shutdown on the station-next-door-neighbour and when your stop is next! And their ministers keep persistent on talk of probable fall of ‘prospective economy’… well what we all hear, in language of our beloved sports, the crickut is…. ‘iss waqt umar gul 10 run score kar gaye hai… aur wo 190 run durr hai apni pehli double century say…. Score hai 140, 9 khelario kay nuksaan par, 40 overo kay ikhtataam par!
Some deceptive opportunism being banked on a previously injured player, who has been deserted by the top order!O bhai umar gul ki one day ki tou century bhi nahi howi aaj tak!
Moving on to the climate! khel kay baad mousam ki khabrain....
Not to mention this is one of the warmest year till date, and definitely believe in the idea who’s time has come! Lets build it!! Lets build a giant spacecraft! Wo bhi AC wala! Interstellar Zindabad!!
So friends… looking at the screens! hoist your spirits and have the laugh! Laugh while you do have the time to read this all!! we are a lost generation of our gloriously gory ancestors and spiritually sound saints!! Happy Weekend everyone! :D
p.s. road par rulta kutta, aur ashtray main jalta sutta, sirf pachaas hazaar kay DSLR ki nazar mein hi achay lagtay hai! –this line was a tribute to lines of filmi one-liners –

Muzaffarabad aur manzar!

Its not always that I fall prey to writing imprompto yet, right now I feel nothing else to do. The inhibitions and negativity within me mig...
