Completely insane, bluntly stated, funnily accurate, very subjective, surprisingly universal. The story could be about me, about you or about nobody. Philosophy, rants, opinions, trivia or gyaan.

The RIGHT time
with the “right” time bullshit?
mean really… Who are you to know right from wrong? And how is one supposed to
be aware of the status of Father Time if one does nothing about it and only
keeps waiting?? What if life doesn’t offer you that opportunity again???
for the right time”. “All in good time”. “Samay se pehle …”
jazz. Perfect excuse to procrastinate. The maha mantra for lazy losers.
We sing “If tomorrow never comes” and we
enjoyed “Kal Ho Na Ho”. But they are not the way we function and think. Of all
the million things we have learnt to do, to prioritize right is not on the top
of the list. Work takes precedence over relationships, and money becomes more essential
than people. We read about stories like life is a cup of coffee and life is a mayo jar but the
moment the story is appreciated and done with, you move on and live the same
way that is a given…
urgent stuff that means little is done first, and the important things that
must be done soon are kept on hold for ever and ever.
“right” time is NOW.
other time will ever be as RIGHT as the current moment.
a dream, pursue it. You may not be alive to do it tomorrow.
like Jimmy Shergill says in Munnabhai MBBS when he is told he will not live
long; he said he was too busy arranging for everything and postponed his
dreams. He thought there would be time later for his personal fulfilment after “necessities”
had been taken care of. Guess what, the “right” time was not bequeathed to him.
He was not fortunate enough.
I know there are some things you cant put off
and you must do even if you don’t wish to. Being responsible is not an easy or enviable
I know I am guilty of it. I preach, and I try, but I often fail.
are so many people who express a desire to meet me, and I cant because I get
tied down to various other personal and professional commitments. There are so
many times I cant do what I really want on a weekend as someone has commanded
or requested us to do something that they consider critical. There are so many
reasons that well up as obstacles and hindrances when I plan anything.
But the question is how long can you keep someone waiting? What if that person
does not stay and leaves forever? Voluntarily or forcibly… What if you are
denied the chance you were hanging on for??? Will you be able to forgive
yourself then? Is the thing you gave precedence to, worth that loss???
know you are thinking of something or someone as you read this. I am glad you
you have that someone or something to look out for, plan for, wish for…
if you aren’t… Well, who am I to tell you what is right and wrong? If you haven’t
met anybody that crossed your mind a few seconds ago, then nothing else matters…
minute you ask yourself, “what is more important?”, you will have your answer.
The way to go about it, you can always figure out. After all, you know best…
Whether you do anything about it or not…
the crap… go do what you must for the people that matter…
else matters but their smile. For the small things that you can do now.
is not always sold at a million bucks and big cars and posh flats.
wait for the big fat laughter that you may not see 10 years later when you have
“taken care” of everything else that YOU thought was more crucial.
