“The Rainbow i saw last night”- Quite an odd name to sport a blog.
I always wanted to blog, for one good reason of sharing what is inside to the outside, of me. Days have passed when I always dreamt about it, and hours have passed when I used to sit and wonder how to get started. Things have always been in place, and I did know how to, but to get started remained a big thing. Busy in answering questions raised by the society  like ‘What?’ ‘Why?’ and ‘When’ for so many other things, I felt myself dwindling in the ocean of my interests and striving to be successful in my career as if it is the sole purpose of life. There is a lot more to life, you see!

Given all the possibilities, and awaiting all the probabilities, life is a level short from where we see it. The world we see is much of the one formed by ego than self, and for that reason it IS attractive I should agree. Not all the time does the real form reckons beauty, like any other form beckons it. A heavy wind crosses my mind as I start thinking about the tussle between self and ego in my very own perspective. I am not fed with an answer here, and that is not important too, the answer I mean. Not all questions need an answer, but a realisation for sure, about the question in place. Those that remain unanswered have the privilege of being a question, young like a painting, raising curiosity which is so difficult to achieve otherwise. The possibility of having more than one answer for a single question is very interesting. In proper words, we call it PERSPECTIVES. It is all in the way we see a thing, that we perceive it and accept it, and even fight for the opinion formed with some one who differs by it.

Acceptance is so comfortable, but a denial is equally uncomfortable. We are born and brought up that way, to smile on approvals. The scores, the pats, the keep it ups, the rewards, the claps, the way to go’s, and the smiles inside on all these instances have made us to work, toil and earn the approval of others. We all like to be noticed, we all love to be  celebrated and we all NEED it today. We are gifted with this notion, because that is the way things go around, people in particular. Life does not show much of a promise unless you are termed successful with a word of approval from the society, measured by your career, bank account, bonus points and best of your achievements. I don’t and do find a harm in it, for they DO carry meaning in both the ways,..  but the bigger picture is a whole lot colourful. There is lot n life to be termed so beautiful than a ringing bright success.

The morning stretch when waking up, the blaze of the evening sun,  the shout on the street for the vegetable vendor, a random act of kindness, a specific memory with an old school friend, the cup of tea with an act of forgetfulness mixed with it without sugar, the smile of a loved one, the hug of a stranger, the cling of  beer mugs, the motivation of a teacher, the breeze on a bike ride, the slice of  a disappointment, the beep of a mobile phone signalling low battery, the wisdom of darkness, the generosity of a book, the serenity of wind, the nature of a tree, the difference between love and lust, the similarity between pain and pleasure, and the eyes that have read this all with much of silence and memories inside… there is JUST so much beauty in everything around.., All we have to do is feel it INSIDE. Minds are buildings, let us open their windows, and look at life the way we want to and the way it needs to, for a view is so important than a memory.
Let us Love, Live and contemplate it!

Well, with so much to see, hear, feel, talk, wonder, and blog about, are you still concerned about the rainbow i saw last night?

A writer by passion, and an Entrepreneur by profession! Well its not important to fill up this ABOUT ME COLUMN out here, fr what u wud perceive abt me wud be a reflection of wat I say abt me. There is something more important,,, There is something about yourself that you don’t know.. Something that u wil deny tat t even exists, until its 2 late to do anything abt t. Its te 1ly reason u get up in te mrng, te 1ly reason u suffer the shitty boss, the blood,sweat and the tears. it s bcoz u want ppl to know how good,attractive, generous,funny wild nd clever u really r. “fear or revere me, but pl think I am special” V shre an addiction, V r approval junkies. We r all in t fr the slap on te back and the golden watch. Look at te clever boy wit te badge polishin his trophy. The u inside you, Shine on yu, crazy diamond. Coz we r jus monkeys wrapped in suits beggin f rte approval of others,, if we knew tis, we wudnt do this. Some1 s hidin t frm us,. And if u had a second chance, u wud ask “WHY ?” I am one who is tryin to be as radical as this makes sense to you…

    Very True.. Life has a beauty in it in everything and it all depends on the perception of each one to call it a beauty or call it ‘yet another thing’ …
    a very good writing with some excellent catchers in the middle like “Those that remain unanswered have the privilege of being a question,” …

  4. Great post! and welcome to the blogging world 🙂
    I always feel I could never take a stand on anything. I feel there is no right and wrong and its all ‘Perspectives’. Very well said. Keep writing.

    Well to say, this was where you started. A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step they say. I wonder what bothers you to keep up simple rules :P. U cannot start a journey with 1000 steps for the start itself is worth a super – pro. It simply and journey of many a mile starting with 1000 steps 🙂
