PERSPECTIVE

Disagreement occurs when two people share different and contradicting perspectives on a subject. I have been surrounded by controversies ever since my toddler age. Wherever I go controversies follow me. Well that’s as true as you would spell MONDAY. 😉 What happens to you when you feel the society -in which you live- as a bounding on you? You search for wings; wings to fly high, alone, free and randomly. I don’t live a life where I think of those fucking “four” persons who are always ready to judge your shit. I wear what I want. I put accessories I like. I choose, I lose, I drive, and I dive. I speak, I raise voice, I challenge and I oppose if I find something wrong. I don’t keep alter ego to live my life. I live the way I want. There is no alias to me. Sometimes I have a view and sometimes I don’t have a view on anything. Shackles of society, caste, race, religion, sex, and relations don’t bind me. Many of us are good at self-deprecating, and are not so good at the opposite. Ask yourself what is your favourite thing about yourself? This is what I like about me. What about you?

32 Flavours

When I was born my grandma brought a golden spoon and a bottle of honey. Honey was the first thing I have tasted on this planet. In Ayurveda, honey plays a role of blood purifier. Isn’t it an interesting fact about your life – the first thing you have tasted? I hope many of the Indians would have honey as their answer. It’s a ritual at the birth. As I grew older I tasted different food items. What I know is everything has a unique taste. It’s similar to unique people around me, isn’t it?

What am I, Vanilla, Chocolate or something else entirely? Everything in this world is connected. I wonder why the term Isolation derived. For example, to describe vanilla I would say a spice that has awhat-makes-your-company-unique2 sweet, perfumed aroma with a woody or smoky flavour. I can’t describe vanilla without relating it to woody or smoky flavour. Similarly we describe Men and Women by relating them to other humans, ideas, animals, professions, and sometimes things. This is why we have “dusty eyes”, “smoking hot” lips, “bubble” butt and “washboard” abs. My good deed makes me a hero and bad deed a villain. What makes me unique?

Some people love vanilla, some love chocolate, and there are others who love garlic and onion too. I am what I am. Sometimes I add up to someone’s taste and sometimes I am avoided even by name. I am nobody, but I am someone. What if a recipe says that by adding me to a dish will make the dish unpalatable? Does this mean I am useless? No! Societal norms are like recipe, they are written just to make a good society like a recipe makes a delicious dish. Am I antisocial? No, I am anti-idiot. To avoid the so called norms one finds Isolation and hence came the term Isolation. I am not isolated. I live in this society. I am a part of it. I reflect what I am. I do what I want to do. I don’t get lost in the societal norms. I do no harm, and take no shit! I am a being. I reach everything that is new and let it discover a part of myself. My breaths are my own; no one else does that for me. If I am able to breathe for myself why can’t I derive myself?
