Life is sometimes an Unfinished Journey

Life is like a train journey.
We are all passengers. Some complete their journey and then get down, some get down earlier, their journey unfinished.

But for some? But sometimes the tracks themselves lead to nowhere.

Wel this post was scheduled to be published and before that I got a Tag from my blog friend Deepika Gupta. Imagine !! She is asking me to do a Tag named "A dozen things to be accomplished in my Tweenhood" Haha!! Tweens? Ohhhh next life... maybe .. if I am not born a cockroach or something!! And what do I wish to do in next 10 years? I wonder.. ...

Nothing perhaps? What is the point of wishing things that will never happen? Oh of course, we all do wish to be healthy, love and be loved, be happy and make people happy, and so on... but then that is something everybody wants to do, nothing to tag about... So maybe I can think of something special that I wish to do?

Nahhhhhh!!
Have I not done enough already? Let me just complete my journey.......Sorry Deepika... That is all I wish to do in next 10- 20 - 30 yrs ... 40 yrs... whatever...

hehe!!

indeed life is sometime unfinished journey...nd ur picture is definite to say so.
'kato kichu korar chilo je..kato kichu bolaar chilo je'...its not mine but Anjan dutt say so in Madly bangali...bt i think its all in our mind.

Yes.. which is why I actually took some time to think if I can really do the tag Deepika sent to me.. As you can see she is in her Twenties... and so have so much left to do ! Do we not go through different stages of our lives thinking and planning to do so much... and yet at the ed of it all... much still remains to be done.... I bet it is same for all... unless you get Inner Mental Peace.. That alone will make us realise that there is no end to doing.. and so the trick is to stop trying at one time.. let us not be Michael Jackson.. and die without actually living!

about that awards... you can grab it all.. it's all for you... al you have to do is just...

1. If, and only if, you get tagged (you've been tagged, havn't u?!?) write a post with links to 10 the most inspiring and very friendly blogs,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Not an optional: Proudly display 'the most inspiring and very friendly award' with a link to the post that you wrote.
4. Talk to each of 'em, let 'em know that you give something to them.
5. Do the same thing as the giver did to you :)

That was that! Please, remember to tag blogs with real merits, i.e. relative content, and above all - blogs that really inspiring you! It is not the first time I am starting something with my blog so I hope it doesn't come back to haunt me.

but... again.. if it's bothering you... it's ok for you to keep all the awards on your blog without jumping it onto others.. it's up to you dear :) thnx :)

Shantanu u r absolutely right.but think over it who is the responsible for that?the person who lost his/her mental peace at the age of twenty or we the people who are guiding them.why they r thinking so...it is more important to think than why they r doing this...somewhere and somehow we fail to do proper guide to them.would not u support me that the time we r living it is very restless?whether it is in home or in the society or in the country??it is just reflection of that.......

ShantanuDas said...

Oh yes!! You are right. The times are indeed very restless times.. People are always running after material things more nowadays than ever before. For eg Look at how many people throng the malls trying to find enjoyment there when there are so many places in the midst of nature or look at how IIT engineers are committing suicide at USA after having lost their dreams which seems to be making money ONLY and killing their families (recent news items) or look at how people even after getting lakhs in salaries are unable to keep up with credit card dues and are selling off wives gold jewelleries (funny thing is that both the spouses are indulging in spending for material goals)....and of coursenot to talk of increasinf divorces due to the increase impatience and adaptability.

but of course even in the midst of this all there are youngsters who are still doing the right things.. but as i said you are right.. the times have changed.. more and more people are running after material goals and resulting in restlessness.

ShantanuDas said...

Hi divsi.. you too are right.. if you are talking of doing something that one wished to do.. it is never late for doing anything... :-)
