Independence is respectable,
To cross the road alone is brave
Reflexively to hold hands we crave
Being involved in work is focus
1 call from a friend shifts our locus
Long day at office is hard labour
Thou with an ally meals we savor
Drive home with music is all we need
To chant along and set free, we need a friend indeed.
To watch TV & fall asleep is ideal
With a smile we sleep reading a message of good night sleep well.
All your life you give in
Give in to the wishes of those around you.
You don’t speak up
You don’t express your views.
For a strange reason it even pleased you.
To maintain cordial friendly relations for long.
Probably you thought it was the right thing to do.
And suddenly life knocks sense into you.
You want to change things.
Self respect has now assumed a pivotal role.
Being taken for granted hurts like a hard rock.
You want to lash out at others.
But this demeanor defies your basic nature.
It goes against who you were all this while.
You are not familiar with the rules of this arena.
You fear loosing anyone and anything.
But you are determined.
Is it too late though??
With a benevolent and easy to get along with nature, she is liked by everyone.
An absolute sweetheart, she loves being in the company of people,discovering new ways to have fun.
With yes as an answer for almost everything others ask, she is the most adjusting one.
Like everyone she also gets discouraged by down turns but to show others a ray of hope is her forte.
Gradually she even learned to find a silver lining for herself and pave a way.
She finds comfort and contentment in knowing that people around her are happy and gay.
Donning up like a pretty damsel is not something she pays attention to, though she manages to turn a few heads her way.
She s never the centre of attraction or never the one to be spoken about but all come to her to share their problems and she listens all day.
A midst all the goodness in her life there’s just one minor fault.
In spite of her earnest efforts she s alone more often than not.
I am busy.
That’s what they all say.
Life is so messy.
Each day is a new fray.
I am busy.
So was unable to answer your call
Don’t be so pushy
Its not a big deal at all.
I am busy
Will get back to u in a while
So so so sorry
Its been a long day, jus din get the time.
I am busy
Its not like I don’t care
Stop being so squeaky
I just ain’t free for casual banter
You know when u need me I am there.
….. to ring the bell or shout through the window to call out someone seems like an act of the past now. The new knock is the 4 letter word PING. You Ping a person and they open the door to welcome you with a broad smile.
We owe this change in the face of communication to the smart phones that have over night turned the way we talk. Calling a person and having a tete- a- tete either out of boredom or for any real work has reduced drastically. Everybody prefers a chat on BBM or on Whats App. This holds true even for very close friends and family, calling whom was a reason for joy earlier. The advanced features and applications these phones provide have become a new language altogether. Display pictures and status messages are updated by many the instant something good or bad happens in their life. Immediately the world knows your mental state of affairs. You are either very happy or sulking. The extent to which these convenient message services are used has surpassed casual conversations. An attempt to solve problem of every and any nature is made using these messengers. What is overlooked is the fact that the tone and voice of the person conveying a message via these is not audible. Hence, under most circumstances the message is misinterpreted or misunderstood creating rather awkward situations.
Even when we are out with a bunch of friends or family most of the time most of us are staring into the screen of our mobiles like some fortune is going to pop out of it and fall into our laps. There seems to be some invisible glue which keeps us attached to the phones 24 by 7. It would be safe to say that a lot of us sleep with our phones next to our pillows and check it several times in the night for a PING from a friend.
Obviously like any other thing in the world smart phones too has Pros. They have made the world a smaller place by making it possible to talk to people on the go. They have also helped us get in touch with long-lost friends and acquaintances. With access to emails and documents on our finger tips,corporate life has picked up pace. Exchange of pictures, files , information via these devices is easy. One can also advertise using features of the phones . From a professional point of view , yes these are benefits but because of these one always has to stay on his/her toes. To differentiate and a draw a line between personal and professional life is getting next to impossible.Thanks to these small communication dynamites, work tensions are not released even on a holiday.
So for me they are a bridge cause as much fun it may be to update sexy catchy photos and update status messages nothing can be better than sitting with a friend or the now rare 3 hour mid night phone call.
It all seems disturbed
My mind is perturbed
Each day is long and strenuous
My thoughts rattled n nervous
Like this unusual month this year
To address my Doubts I fear.
Shades of the colours have faded
Moisture & wet sand have evaded.
The dry heat has left me soaking
Atmosphere so tense, has left me guessing
With Terse events n predictable weather.
Pleasantness n peace are like an occasional feather.
