Though people say, each day is a new beginning, in reality, each day is a continuation of previous day. Thus, with changing times, nostalgia creeps in from each nook and corner of , you name the object.
My grandma’s vessels takes me back to that era. The days spent in her care. Those are part of me and will never leave me.
A baby socks or cap, takes me back to my daughter’s initial years, this too would never leave me.
Another facet is trees, those big banyan trees, mango trees still brings back the time we friends used to comment on ‘ how beautiful its leaves are, how its glittering’. I guess, nanditha and jubitha can recall those days.
Rains are another theme. Various types of rain I had seen. Mumbai rains, non-stop Kerala rains, New York showers, Bangalore days and yes most traditional city Chennai rains. All are associated with life and thus Nostalgic.
Provided, you are ready to strike a new logic.
‘Karma, karma, karma’ a student sighs seeing a strict invigilator.
‘Karma, karma, karma’, a wife shudders at indifferent husband.
Well, a child sees a new possibility in each ‘NO’ s. How? Applying a new logic instantly. A seconds thought would put you back on track, and the journey continues.
A world rich of ‘mes’ is a mess. Who comes first, who wins a game, who gets the trophy? The balls thrawn, the runs made, exquisite catches, marvelous runs gone ashtray by ‘mes’.
Trophys won gives a momentary high. But a well played game remains as an enigma both in the winners and losers heart.
No imprinting in ‘mes’ only in ‘in being’.
A thought comes to me, what makes a person human? Is it sharing, caring or being social (being human) or all of these in ‘proportions’ 1:2:3 or 3:2:1 or 1:1:1!
It’s just an accident to balance this ratio or could a measured way possible by each ‘human’?
Its an irony or is it just reality when we are about to say, life has come to a full circle, a deviation happens!
We are all in the hope that one day things are going to be better or worse (for the cynics). Deviations as I said germinated in our cells by God particles as far as my beliefs are concerned.
It is soothing or dramatic to have changes. Also, challenging.
