of age

thinking about getting old, about people around you getting old and death bring so much grief. age does not seem to stop, its as relentless as time. days get older, scapes get older, everything dies. even memories become obsolete. the age is too fast. yesterdays are forgotten in an instance. in any relative transformation to the future, there are no more past to remember. its irrelevant. the wish for a circle of life, the cycle does not exist anymore. atleast not in our lifetime.

how would it be, if we live to a hundred years old and then age backwards. the perfect circle. living all times past and future. and returning to progeny. now that too will be filled with sorrow. as we see death have erased everything for you to feel nostalgic. for aging backwards is the same as getting old. as we walk back we dont find anyone relating to us anymore. the paths have already diverged, the memories converged into the singularity. everything seems to have become redundant.

This post is deep.

For me age is just a number. I didnt turn any different when I turned 26 when I felt when I turned 19. I guess I am still 19 in my head. My mum says she's still 19 in her head.

I think most things really are redundant. At te end of almost everything if you ask, "how does it matter?", the answer is most likely to "yeah I guess".

"..the paths have already diverged, the memories converged into the singularity. "

Beautiful.

i don't want to live forever (although i do want to stick around for a long long time). having to re-live our lives would simply take away the joy from it. the joy of discovery.

the eternal have a curse upon them. to have seen and understood the world too well, so much so that there is nothing left in it to be a reason for wondrous thought.

we may not find particular individuals relating to us anymore. but everything else shall become redundant.

[girl] thx girl. all seems to be lost in the end, when its juts memories and nothing more. its not like we can relieve it. but yes, in the mind we can. i want to turn back the time in my mind too :)

[nachi] you said it well 'so much so that there is nothing left in it to be a reason for wondrous thought.' lets live for whats worth it, full of abandon.

[kavi] you caught the point sir... there is another side :)

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
